It’s working!!!

Ok, so doing that whole WalMart Savings Catcher thing is working out well. I went ahead and went to Bluebird by Amex and got signed up. Pretty easy just plug in your info, and then in about 7 days you get your Bluebird card. It’s kinda like a credit/debit card, but you have to add your own money to it out of your bank, or from checks, or cash, or whatever. I’m just using mine to transfer the WalMart Savings to it for now. But I was looking, and they have a family plan where you can set up to four family plans, and anyone 13 years or older can have a card. You can set daily spending limits, and turn ATM access on and off, and just all kinds of goodness! Great way to start teenagers learning how to use money wisely, and keep them on a budget plan, with minimal fees.

So anyway, going through the WalMart line today, and told her that I was going to use two different payment methods, because my Bluebird only had a bit on there, and it swiped through just like a gift card, and took the money off that account, and then I paid for the rest of the items. She was amazed that someone was actually using the Savings Catcher, and was impressed to hear how much we were saving, and that Bluebird doubled it, “for real!!!!” So I think she is now going to sign up for the card too! 😀

In other news… I got two styrofoam heads from the beauty supply store today to take pictures of my hats for the Etsy store! The kiddo’s think they are funny… and creepy! Now I am going to have to guard my foam heads, because they thought up so much weirdness on the way home.  Most of it Halloween related, some of it just goofiness!!! smh

AND on another front… The View last week ran a story on their Hot Topics about a mom in MN that could be facing jail time for using hemp oil to control her sons seizures. http://abc.go.com/shows/the-view/video/pl5554876/vdka0_cl0xbl4x   All I can say is Whoopie Goldberg makes my heart soar, and she made me cry!!! So anyway, our good friends Paige Figi and Joel Stanley now are confirmed next Thursday to be on a taping of The View, boop,  just like that!!! I think the Realm of Caring family has just become sooooo huge, and wonderfully pesty :-D, that as soon as anyone starts talkin about “those seven brothers in CO”,  we’re all in there cheering them on! YES! Tell America cannabis works!!!! And these guys drop what they’re doing, and six of the brothers cover for whatever the seventh had going on, and they get the word out!!!! The Stanley’s saved my daughters life!  Although they say we did it, because we were incredibly brave, and made the move.  But no, they were there for us when we got here! They walked us through getting so much set up at thee most scariest time in our lives!!! And for that… I am forever grateful!!! So stay tuned for updates of when that show will be airing, and yeah, Whoopie will prolly make me cry some more! 😛

TTYL 🙂
