Student Global Impact Conference MP3s Daniel and I were kind of sad to miss the 10th anniversary SGI conference this year, especially when his youngest brother returned and we saw his stack of books and conference notebook. Our pastor also spoke at the conference. So we were glad to learn that the audio is available on the Missions Mandate site.
Eclectic Culture Farm Living Off-Grid Daily Journal This family lives off the grid (no electricity) and works hard! This week they’ve been journaling their daily experience. They also started a new Master of the Land course where you can go and work on the farm and learn how they live off the grid. (Entrepreneurial genius–killing 2 birds with one stone.) I’d love to do that one day! If you’re wondering how they blog, they use batteries. Yeah, spelling and grammar are off here and there, but mine would be too if I lived off the grid.
Envelope System Tutorial Tutorial for some super cute budget envelopes if you use the Dave Ramsey envelope system. I think this would also work great to use with coupons for people (like me) who don’t like to take in the giant coupon binder and would rather have coupons in a smaller notebook or wallet.
Coupon for Free Fruit and Nuts with purchase at Earth Fare. Good deal if you live where I do.
To Wake Wanting Jesus Ann Voskamp shares lessons learned from her daughter’s desire to see baby Jesus. Make sure to follow her link about Laura’s epiphany journey. Sometimes evangelicals throw out the baby with the bathwater (the baby being the liturgical calendar), and miss out on many of the symbols and lessons that truly to point our minds to Christ.
Goals for the New Year Carrie also has a great post compiling helps for the new year.
Not to Late to Read Through Your Bible This Year. Desiring God offers several Bible reading plans to help you read through the Bible this year. In the past, I’ve used the M’Cheyne schedule, but this year I am attempting to read the Bible in 90 days, and Daniel is reading through the Bible chronologically this year.
Feed Reads are one way I plan on cataloging great online reads I find. Doesn’t mean I necessarily agree with everything I read or the authors.
I’ve definitely enjoyed using our photos as postcards, but even though I can use our free photos, postage will still cost (once I use up my free photo stamps). However, I recently discovered Hippopost, which allows you to upload a picture of your choice to be used as a postcard (you can also add a message). Hippopost will then print the postcard and the postage is covered by advertising (mailed to the US and Canada only–I’m guessing you could send them if you are located internationally, but would have to send them to a US or Canadian address).
They are able to do this for free by placing a small advertisement on the postcard. So long as you don’t mind sending a postcard that has an advertisement on it, this is a great freebie! I just ordered a postcard, so I’ll update once we receive it. If you’re on a trip and want to send a postcard–all you need is an internet connection and a digital photo (you can actually select one of their images and just add your message, too)!
See update here.

The first 2 ways require some “investment” money, but the last step is TOTALLY free.
Early last Fall I earned $150 in Spa Rewards from a Walgreens Wyeth brand promotion. Since I had coupons, I actually spent nothing out of pocket; and due to some problems that Wyeth had with the spa companies, it eventually resulted in people getting a $150 prepaid Visa card. I had been anticipating its arrival for months and have had a list of things I’ve been wanting/needing to buy for quite some time. However, I thought, since this $150 was basically free, perhaps I can “invest” some of this money and have a bit more as a result. So I did. I won’t be able to use it for a couple more months, but perhaps by then I will have prioritized the things we really need.
Here’s how I’m doubling the money…and here’s how you can, too!.

Ironically enough, you can print this coupon to get a free print cartridge refill at participating Walgreen’s locations. Just hope you have enough ink to print the coupon!
If you’re in Greenville, the Walgreen’s on the corner of East North and Pleasantburg is the only one that does print cartridge refills. (From experience, we were sent away from another location, even though they had the “free refill” sign outside their store.) As an added note, I’ve had both a black and color cartridge refilled at Walgreen’s, and did have trouble with the color cartridge last time. Generally, it’s best for printers to use new cartridges or cartridges that have only been refilled once; however, since it’s free, you may want to give it a try if your cartridge is empty.
