A Reminder To Be Kind

Be Kind shirtToday is Inauguration Day — which my phone keeps autocorrecting to in aggression day. That could be true also. But this isn’t a political post. We don’t post those here on Drugstore Divas. Regardless of your party lines, who you championed for, we are getting a new president today. You could be smiling or screaming at that sentence, but either way, there will be a new president of the US before the day is through.

Be kind.

No matter what you feel, be kind. Be a gracious winner or a gracious loser. If you don’t have someone to look up to as an example of how to be kind, to be humble, to keep your opinions to yourself, look to this shirt from Cents Of Style. The shirt reads, simply, be kind.

It doesn’t say, “Hold the door open for someone regardless of political affiliation.” But it does. It doesn’t say, “Take a half beat to stop and think when someone posts something you disagree with on Facebook … then scroll by.” But it does. The print isn’t, “Don’t make others feel small because you are feeling big.” But it says that too.

It’s a good lesson, for today and the other 345 days this year.

Life is too short. Time is too precious to waste it with people and situations that don’t matter. You only have 24 hours today, a mere 1,440 minutes. Why waste even just one of those minutes angry? It’s not worth it. And your minute, your day, your life would be so much better if you could spend all your moments smiling and happy.

It starts with being kind.

Start by just letting things go. Don’t get frustrated over the small stuff. Don’t lose friends over Facebook statuses, just be glad you have friends at all. Instead of getting grouchy when you get stuck at a red light, be happy you get to listen to the song on the radio a little longer. When your boyfriend leaves a dish in the sink, just wash it and move on with your day. Letting go of the knee jerk reaction to get angry, to get defensive, to put others in their place will give you more peace. And that will help you to be kind, in those moments and the ones that follow.

If we could all be a bit more kind, starting today on Inauguration Day, and continuing on our life’s journey, wouldn’t this world be a little better?

This Be Kind shirt from Cents Of Style inspired this post. You can pick one up for yourself here. And to celebrate Inauguration weekend (okay just coincidentally but it sounds better), you can get this shirt for just xxx with the code xxx.

How will you Be Kind today?

We put together a list of 15 Creative Kids Crafts for Valentine’s Day. Some of them are really easy to make and a few of them will take some supervision. But supervision is fun because it means you can spend time with your kids creating something. Who doesn’t love that?

Shop Your Way: Possible Free Points For Entering The GR8NEWYR Instant Win Game

shop your wayIf you know me, you know I love free money. And if you’re a fan of Drugstore Divas, you must love free money too. Also, if you’ve been around here, you read our posts about how you could get Shop Your Way points for free. Right now, you may get points for free.

First you must be a Shop Your Way member and have signed up under a personal shopper (for free). You can sign up under me via that link.

Then, head to the sweepstakes section and search for the GR8NEWYR Instant Win Game. Right now, it’s a doorbuster, so everyone who enters while it is is getting 1,000 free points. It can stop being a doorbuster at any time, so hurry. It may take up to 24 hours to see the points in your account.

I usually use these free points to fill our pantry. Our local Kmart has a great grocery section, selling everything from pasta to chips to refrigerated items. I usually order packaged food online to use my points, but if you prefer to use yours in store, you can purchase those cold items. Just be sure to give your cashier the phone number associated with your Shop Your Way account at checkout and the register will apply any points and coupons you have available. 

This time of year, though, I usually save up all my points and then use them to pick up Christmas presents. Sears and Kmart have great gift items. You can purchase toys, clothes, home items, tools, and more. So you can find something for everyone on your holiday shopping list. But, if you’re looking for something specific that you can’t buy at Sears or Kmart, you can still use your free points on wrapping paper and tape — items that I blow through during the holidays.

What do you usually use your Shop Your Way points on?

Cents Of Style: 2 For $15 State Pendant Necklaces (Today Only)

Home is where the heart is. Celebrate your home state with State Pendant Necklaces.They say home is where the heart is, although the other day I saw a sign that said home is where your WiFi connects automatically. Both are true but only the former is relevant. Today, January 17, you can get two state pendant necklaces for $15 from Cents of Style with the code 2FORSTATE. These are usually $24.95, so this is a great deal. Instead of paying almost $50 for two, it’s just $15. Plus, these ship for free as well!

These are perfect for anyone who has moved out of state, or maybe just going to college out of state, and is missing home. College kids really like getting mail. I remember it being really special. So how great would it be to purchase one of these and send it to your niece or cousin who is away at school. It would be a nice pick me up to start a new semester.

You can mix and match state-shaped necklaces with ones that have state names and coordinates. You can layer them on top of each other for a really pretty look.

This deal is available today only, so if you live in a popular state, you might want to hurry.

Egg Salad Sandwich

Looking for an easy lunch idea? Egg salad sandwich is perfect! Get the recipe at www.drugstoredivas.net.Some days, you just need an easy lunch. One you can make that requires minimal effort. So you can start it, then clean the kitchen or get ready to go out, then come back and the food basically cooked itself. I have those days all the time. I work at home and don’t really have time for a lunch. So I don’t have time to actually sit and prepare some gourmet meal every day, but I also will not just heat up some leftovers from dinner last night (mostly because I want them for dinner tonight!). Enter the egg salad sandwich.

It’s such a tasty staple that people often forget about. We got back into them when we started working at the farmers’ market on Saturday mornings. We would wake up, I would start the eggs, and then go back upstairs to get dressed while Pete packed the car. When we were ready for them, the eggs were ready for us. I’d put together the sandwich, pack it in a cooler, and lunch at the market was done. Easy.

Egg Salad Sandwich

What You’ll Need:

  • 2 eggs
  • 2 slices of bread
  • 3 tablespoons mayo
  • 2 stalks of celery
  • 2 pieces of lettuce

What You’ll Do:

Looking for an easy lunch idea? Egg salad sandwich is perfect! Get the recipe at www.drugstoredivas.net.

Fill a bowl with water. Boil the eggs, covered, on medium-high, about 20 minutes.

While they’re boiling, wash and dice the celery.

When the eggs are done, pour out the boiling water and fill the pot with cold water (with the eggs still in the pot). Cooling them down makes them much easier to peel. Then, peel the eggs and dunk them back into the pot to clean off any shell you  may have missed.

Add the eggs into a bowl, using a fork to break them into pieces. Add the celery and mayo, then combine.

Toast the pieces of bread. Put the egg mixture on one side of the bread, then top with lettuce.
