How YOU Help Keep MelissaStuff Posting the Latest Deals . . .

From time to time my readers ask how they can help out here at MelissaStuff. I don’t need you to send $$ – I mean I might enjoy it, but it’s not exactly a helpful long-term solution. There are a couple of things you can do, though.

#1 – Use the links in MelissaStuff posts to make purchases.

You may not realize it but when you click through from a post to Target or Kohl’s . . . or you follow a post to a daily deal site like Juice in the City or Buy With Me – MelissaStuff gets credit for referring you and your purchase. The more “purchase strength” the blog carries, the more advertisers and PR reps want to work with us which means we are able to bring your more and better deals.

I know many times after you sign up for a daily deal site, you get the same deals I post delivered to your inbox or one of your friends may post a deal on Facebook . . . you can follow any of those and end up purchasing the same item at the same price. But when you do it through MelissaStuff, you make it possible for this blog to continue bringing you the best and latest deals.

#2 – Share the deals you find with us.

There are a couple of different ways you can do this. If the deal – or some version of it – has already been posted on the blog, please leave a comment with how YOU were able to do the deal. Many times your firsthand experience will trump the bare facts . . . besides I want to hear how these deals are helping you and learn from the wealth of knowledge and experience my readers possess.

If you find a deal that I haven’t posted, please send me an email detailing the deal. If I think it’s something that would be a good fit for the blog, I’ll share it with the readers and give you credit. In addition, you will also get an extra five entries into any existing giveaway.

I love doing and posting the deals . . . I want to continue to bring you as many deals as possible. Please consider helping me do just that.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
