It's Small Business Saturday!!!

Welcome to that wonderful day that helps keep families, like mine, going!!!  What a great thing it would be if we could purchase all of our gifts from small businesses but I know that that is not likely to happen.  Using some creativity, however, there are a lot of gifts that can be purchased from people who are trying to help support their families by running their own business.

My intent was to put up a wonderful picture of my three oldest girls and their soap business, but Blogger is telling me I've run out of space and so I need to work on rectifying that.  In the meantime, I've got a couple of options for you if you are interested in supporting a small business for Christmas:

1.  Mystic Monk Coffee-you'll notice on my sidebar that I have a banner for this wonderful group of monks who make some awesome coffee!  Not only are you supporting them by clicking and purchasing, but I get a little something, too!  If you've never tried this coffee, you should.  It tastes great!

2.  How is your school year going?  What???  I know, I was talking about Small Business Saturday, so what does your school year have to do with that?  Well, if you'd like to bring some organization to your year (you know, with New Year's coming up and resolutions and things like that), why not have someone purchase you a copy of "A Plan for Joy in the Home"?  Or,  if you feel on top of your game, why not purchase a copy for someone you know who could use a little life-organizing help?  You can check that out here. 

3.  I know I've mentioned this soap before, but just to keep you remembering, why not go check out my girls' soap website.  I'm not kidding, this stuff is great and it makes the perfect Christmas gift for a teacher, priest, stocking stuffer, grab bag, family down the name it, it works!

So there you have it...three great options for Small Business Saturday.  Check them out and share this with your friends.  Have a great day and God Bless you for your support!


  1. Our small town did a promotion for Small Business Saturday called Spend $24 on the 24th. It was great and I think the community really responded. We spent some money at a locally owned art store and a yarn store.

    1. Diane, that sounds like a great idea! I wish I could do all my shopping at small businesses!
