Hello Friends, I hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Today for my son’s 21st birthday all he wanted was money and to go bowling, oh and he also mentioned something about a beer.  Well he got the money, but not the beer…with his father being a Muslim he knew that wasn’t happening.  We did however, go to Mid County Lanes in Middletown and had a great time…at least I did.

Now that my sons are getting older I am beginning to really miss the days when we had family fun time, so today was also a gift to me, a gift for my “giving birth day”!

Hello Friends and Happy Friday Eve!

Today, my youngest begins volunteering at the Food Bank of Delaware. It’s so very hard to find summer employment for teenagers these days, and he needs gas money, so I made him a deal.  He will volunteer 3 hours a day, 3 times a week helping to prepare free summer meals for kids, and I will pay him $50.00 a week for gas and savings.

As a 17 year old male, it’s important for him to build a good work ethic, but to have an opportunity to work in a field that gives back builds character.  I want him to understand that not everyone lives a privileged life and that we all have an obligation to help others. Whether it’s in donating money, clothing, food or time, we should all reach out into our communities to lend a helping hand.

Growing up in a housing project in New Rochelle, NY, my sister and I attended summer programs that provided free lunches.  Even back then, I knew this not only helped us but our grandmother as well, and that it was important to be grateful.  It would upset me when other kids would smash the milk cartons or throw away the fruit, I knew there were others even less fortunate who would have loved to have had that milk or piece of fruit.

If your High School student is also having a hard time finding employment for the summer, consider a volunteer opportunity in your area, it can also be a good topic for their Senior Project.

Today 5  7 is my husband’s 57th birthday!

What did I get him?

NOTHING

Why?

Because for the past 25 years nothing that I’ve ever given him was good enough!

I am a CHEAP frugal shopper so he’s never used a single item that I’ve given him including gift certificates/cards.

Actually seven years ago I started giving him single dollar bills, and no not for what you’re thinking!  I would give him a dollar for each year starting with a pack of 50.  Most times he’d spend it on the boys, but this year he’s not even getting that because we just spent a bunch of money to replace the engine in Tayair’s old car to give to Malik.  Of course we had to assign the car to him and because he had an accident last month it’s costing us an additional $350 month, therefore, no one gets any birthday money this or next year!

Happy Birthday Hubby!

Have a fantabulous evening – Smooches!

blogiversary

February 9th is the 1st year Blogiversary of DeDivahDeals!

I began my journey on Blogspot.com with this post (here) …BORING…a single picture of two bottles of Sally Hansen nail polish and 3 packs of Salon effects clearly marked for clearance from Walgreens…no descriptions…nothing…comments…none…just crickets – oh what a difference a year makes.

The first post to receive a comment and a “like was 40 days later, “Goodwill Deals – Gucci from the 90’s” from Lesley Carter of Bucket List Publications and my girlfriend Wanda, that stroked my ego so I continued purchasing and posting.

As time progressed I read and learned more and found my niche, but more importantly I realized the most rewarding aspect of blogging was the interaction between great virtual friends and followers.

In your own way, each of you have touched my heart and filled a void in such a glorious way that I could never truly express how I feel, so please accept my heart felt THANK YOU…a SMOOCH…and this big ole bag of MONEY…spend it wisely!

 

thank you

smooch
