Do Mother’s Day Differently — Instead of spending $50 on a flower bouquet which quickly wilts, what about changing a life?
thanks for sharing – I enjoyed the csa experience as I’ve thought about doing this.

Here’s another way to “Make your cashier love you”
Take some baked goods bagged up in a cute lunch bag and hand to your favorite cashiers. You’d be surprised at how grateful they would be for you thinking of them! They would really enjoy a “snack” for their break.
I realize you might not be able to do this with the bigger grocery stores, but it would be easy enough to do with the local drugs store you frequent. After all, I am blessed with soooo many free items, I just want my favorite cashiers to know that I’m grateful for all their hard work 🙂

For those interested, there was a really interesting CSA podcast recently on The Survival Podcast — you can find them in itunes (free obviously) and sometimes has some great pieces!
