Share A Bear Update
We had a wonderfully successful Share-A-Bear event over the yearend holidays! Our members, staff, and board "adopted" 135 stuffed animals to share with the Children's Miracle Network for further distribution to children undergoing medical procedures or ambulance rides.
Tags are attached to each bear sharing a greeting and/or name of the donor. A couple big-hearted members and an internal BCU board challenge prompted large scale purchases that impaced our sales pace! But many participated at all levels to collectively provide children a comforing toy in a time of distress.
To ALL who participated, we say "Thank you"!
Minimalize Your Life and Your Finances
The home decorating business is a billion dollar industry, and for good reason. Nothing makes a house feel like a home quite like photos, artwork, and end tables. Before you know it, you're buying more odds and ends from your Pinterest board so your home can look like it's from an episode on HGTV.
If this Dave Ramsey quote applies to you, it might be time to reconsider your lifestyle: "We buy things we don't need with money we don't have to impress people we don't like."
In response to this, the minimalist lifestyle is catching steam. From tiny houses to spare, clean bedrooms, it seems as though these self-proclaimed minimalists have really good design taste. But the truth is they've readjusted their mindset to appreciate the things they have and purge the things that don't bring joy.
Adopting a minimalist lifestyle can help you emotionally and financially. How?
