Today’s Resolution: Get Down to the Nuts & Bolts

Every so often you may find yourself in need of a solo nut, bolt, or nail. If you decide to go to the hardware store, you end up buying more than you need and unnecessarily paying a dollar or two. The alternative is hunting around your junk drawers in the kitchen or seeking something out in the garage. Put all of your “spares” in one convenient spot.  A tool box (this makes the most sense) is convenient or even a small baby food jar can do the trick.

Today’s Resolution: Rid Yourself of the Seven Year Itch

Today's Resolution: Rid Yourself of the Seven Year Itch

Stop holding on to those clothes that you never wear! It’s a good time to go through closets, drawers, and bins and start a pile of clothes you have not worn in 7 or more years. Many people keep a stash of “fat” and “thin” clothes for when weight is gained or lost. Force yourself to maintain an ideal weight. Take away that safety net. Look to see if the styles you have in your closet are tragically outdated. Avoid keeping clothes for sentimental reasons. If you are not wearing them, they serve no purpose. Donate or discard. If anything, it will give you an incentive to stay trim and reward yourself with some new outfits!

Today’s Daily Resolution: Get To Know Mr. October

October marks the seasonal culmination of America’s favorite past-time. Whether you are a fan of baseball or not, learn a few facts about the sport. Chances are you will run into someone who will bring up the World Series this time of year. Study up on easy to remember facts or statistics on classic ballplayers like Babe Ruth, Joe DiMaggio, or Mickey Mantle. Dig a little deeper for interesting trivia on lesser known ballplayers. Read about a controversial issue in baseball. And by the way, do you know who was nicknamed “Mr. October”? Better yet, why?

Today’s Daily Resolution: Wield Some Words of Wisdom

Sound advice and words of encouragement can come from many places: celebrities, historic figures, writers, our family, etc. Some we have heard so often they become cliché. Find a quote or two that personifies your personal mantra or outlook on life. Choose something easy to remember, but not something overused. Add it to your signature in emails; post it on your refrigerator; say it to your friends and family (at the appropriate times).  Be clever and create your own. And remember, in the profound words of Mike Brady (yes, the father of The Brady Bunch fame), “Wherever you go, there you are.”

Today’s Daily Resolution: Check your Perks

Credit cards, phones, computers…all of these items and more are perk-friendly. Take some time to make sure you are taking full advantage of the perks some of your purchases offer. Credit cards offer a variety of items ranging from travel opportunities (flights, train fare, gas cards) to apparel. Phones offer airtime and upgrades. Computers provide access to freebies in the form of software and online memberships. There is nothing worse than discovering you could have had a free flight somewhere, but the promotion you were entitled to is now expired. Check those perks now; you might be able to plan a trip for next to nothing!

Ps. One of our BuzzFarmers clients is Swipely and we’d be jerks if we didn’t mention their awesome cash-back shopping and dining rewards here. Amanda just checked her perks there, and she had $50 in cash-back rewards in her Swipely account!
