“One for One Movement” by Annalee Cole.  October 15, 2011

“The TOMS founder, Blake, was actually at Catalyst last week.  One of the things he spoke about was how their eye wear line came to fruition.  It was really neat.  They had a booth showcasing the new shades and everything.  I think it’s so neat that they’re not just giving away a pair of sunglasses for each pair we buy, but they are actually providing surgeries and eye care for people who can’t see.  Awesome!”

“How to: Shop for the Best Price” by Liz Colburn.  November 19, 2011

“Great post!  Target is a great store.  I went to pick up some things for the tennis team last week and had to go to two separate stores to get what I needed.  I noticed that the exact jacket (that I really want) was a different price at the two stores.  At the first store, it was full price, then at the second it was 30% off.  Two days later I was at a Target near home and saw the jacket again, but it was about 50% off.  Maybe checking multiple Targets is also a good way to find what you want for less.”
