Josh gave me the most crantastic credit card cover this weekend (bumping my cranberry sauce at least a week in the Show and Tell line up). Someone from Jews United for Justice gave two of them to Josh and while I see nothing on their website directly linking to how you can get one of these, I'm sure if you bothered them with emails they would send one along.
Not to be Bertha "Retail Therapy" Buzzkill, but I thought this was brilliant. "Kavannah" translates as mindfulness, so printed on the sleeve is a list of things to consider before making a purchase:
Let's hold up two recent purchases and see if they would have made it through. Cookies are something I need. I cannot borrow one because people do not appreciate having half-digested cookies returned. It was made well enough to last until I made it into the parking lot and ate it. Cookies=money well spent.
Overpriced winter coats for the twins: yes, they needed them. But I could have gotten them a used jacket. It most likely wasn't made with environmentally sound materials or with fair labour practices. It did not bring joy into our lives--JUFJ, WHY DIDN'T YOU GIVE THIS TO US LAST WEEK?
Anyway, I thought it was very cool. And they are a rockin' organization. It's nice to have a credit card cover in and of itself. Even nicer to have one that makes me a smarter shopper.
What are you showing today?
Click here or scroll down to the bottom of this post if this is your first time joining along (hint: link to the permalink for the post, not the main url for your blog). The list is open from now until late Tuesday night and a new one is posted every week.
Other People Standing at the Head of the Class:
Want to bring something to Show and Tell?
- If you would like to join circle time and show something to the class, simply post each Saturday night (or earlier in the week or on Monday if you can't do the weekend), hopefully including a picture if possible, and telling us about your item. It can be anything--a photo from a trip, a picture of the dress you bought this week, a random image from an old yearbook showing a person you miss. It doesn't need to contain a picture if you can't get a picture--you can simply tell a story about a single item. The list opens every Saturday night and closes on Tuesday night.
- You must mention Show and Tell and include a link back to this post in your post so people can find the rest of the class. This spreads new readership around through the list. This is now required.
- Label your post "Show and Tell" each week and then come back here and add the permalink for the post via the Mr. Linky feature (not your blog's main url--use the permalink for your specific Show and Tell post).
- Oh, and then the point is that you click through all of your classmates and see what they are showing this week. And everyone loves a good "ooooh" and "aaaah" and to be queen (or king) of the playground for five minutes so leave them a comment if you can.
- Did you post a link and now it's missing?: I reserve the right to delete any links that are not leading to a Show and Tell post or are the blogging equivalent of a spitball.
