Oral-B at Target Power Dad’s Smile Everyday Sweepstakes & A Personal Memory

Screen Shot 2014-06-13 at 1.10.31 PM

Do you have memories of your Dad that bring a smile to your face?   One of my fondest memories as a child had to do with the “Today is Christine’s Birthday” sign my Dad created for me.  Each year on my birthday, the sign would go in our front yard and I would have my picture taken by my sign. It made me feel special.

When I  became a teenager, I became a little less enthusiastic about my birthday sign, but even those years created important memories that I look back on with fondness.   I remember the year I turned 16 the thought of the  “Today is Christine’s Birthday”sign placed in our yard made me feel embarrassed, so I decided I would hide the sign before my 16th birthday so it couldn’t be displayed in the yard to announce to the whole neighborhood that it was my birthday.   I can still recall feeling a little guilty watching my dad looking everywhere for that sign.

As it turns out, I didn’t hide it well enough, because he eventually found it.  I pleaded with him, “Please Dad! Don’t put it out in the front yard”.  In what I momentarily thought was a very tender gesture, my dad agreed that he wouldn’t put the birthday sign in the yard… instead he marched up and down the street holding the sign and shouting “Today is Christine’s Birthday”!

As mortified as I was as a teenager, I am so glad my Dad took the time to make that sign and share with everyone that it was his daughter’s birthday. As I reflect on those birthdays today, I recognize, even more than I did back then, how much my dad loved me and how much he wanted to show the world that he was proud to have me as his daughter.

My hope is that my own children have fond memories of their dad and the love he has for them.    He has definitely brought smiles to their faces with his fun carefree attitude.

Recycle Ziploc® Bags at Target (and other locations too)

I love that recycling has become more convenient and accessible at our homes, schools, restaurants and stores. Have you noticed the recycling bins at your local Target store?   Target has made it easy for everyone to recycle by placing these bins at the front of their stores.  You can use these bins to recycle glass, plastic, aluminum and plastic bags (even Ziploc® brand bags).

The process of recycling uses far less energy than manufacturing items with brand new raw materials.   Recycling helps with the following:

  • Conserves energy and natural resources
  • Reduces pollution
  • Helps prevent landfills from filling up

Not only can you recycle the plastic bags that you get while you are shopping at Target, you can also recycle any plastic Ziploc® bags, they just need to be clean and dry. I thought it was interesting to find out that the majority of recycled plastic bags become composite lumber, which is used for fences, benches, decks, door and window frames, and even playground equipment.    Many of these items are things that you would use regular lumber for, so when we recycle we are helping to save our natural resources for our children and grandchildren.

My son’s school always has “Waste-Free Wednesday” where everything they bring in their lunch should be reusable or recyclable. I can now send my son’s sandwich in a Ziploc® bag with zero guilt because I know I can recycle it.    My son simply puts the Ziploc® bags back in his lunch box.   Once I have gotten all the use out of the bags that I can, I can clean and dry them)and drop them off at my local Target store.   I head to Target at least once a week (I know many of you do too), so recycling at Target is super easy and convenient.

Target: Buy One iTunes Gift Card, get 2nd 30% off


Target has a sale on iTunes gift cards this week, which will come in handy with Graduations and Father’s Day coming up.     When you buy one iTunes gift card, you will get the 2nd at 30% off.     This essentially means you will be saving 15% off each card you buy (when bought in groups of two).

Here is an example:

iTunes Gift Card ($25 value) $25.00 ~ Buy 2
Buy one, get second 30% off (-$7.50)
Final Price = $21.25 each

I’ve mentioned this before, but when they have sales like this I like to pick up the multipacks to have on hand for teen birthday parties or even for stocking stuffers. There even great to add to your iTunes account if you buy things on a regular basis, it’s a great way to save a little cash on something you do anyway.

Here are a few examples of ways I have gifted the iTunes gift cards:

I have tied a gift card to a pair of headphones I picked up at 70% off.

I have also attached one to a box of candy too.
