About Lindsay Olives:
I’m the kind of person that has to have olives at every holiday meal, it just doesn’t seem right without them! And, when pregnant with my 3rd child, all I craved for weeks was…green olives…I would go to the store and from the time I checked out till I walked to the car, half a jar of olives would be gone! I bought them by the case at that time. lol.  Lindsay Olives has been bringing us these incredibly delicious olives for 100+ years! They have a variety of olives available for purchase, and if you go to their site, you will find some awesome recipes!

$25 Lowes Gift Card Giveaway

Some people think gift cards only serve the purpose of replacing actually buying a gift for someone that they might not want or simply because the giver doesn’t have the desire to put a lot of time/energy/thought into purchasing a gift. But there’s another great way to look at gift cards and use them. There’s an age old concept for budgeting called “Envelope budgeting”. If you have not heard of it, the idea is simple. divide up the cash you have on hand into envelopes with the expense category on it and you only get to spend what is in the envelope. When the envelope is empty you can’t spend any more in that category, and if there is some left over at the end of the month you either add it to a savings account or roll it over for use the following month.

Bottom line is that gift cards help us stay focused on what we need to buy. If we only have a gift card handy–and not cash or credit cards–it’s harder to go astray and spend for things off-budget. It helps us to say “no” to ourselves when we can see the balance you have to work with and then there is NO MORE. Using gift cards to teach kids how to manage their money gets them off to a great start!

Oh, and while you’re at it consolidate those gift cards in one easy to manage location with GoWallet. GoWallet allows you to organize your gift cards online or on your mobile device and you don’t have to carry all those cards around with you. At one quick glance you can see how much the balance is on your cards, even buy more cards right through the app. Registration is free, why not give it a try and give gift card budgeting a spin?

Send The Perfect eGift With Gift Cards

Personally I would rather have a gift card. I love gift cards it allows me to purchase what ever I want and get it when I want. I do enjoy gifts as well. Some people may think going and giving gift cards are a cheap way out from actually taking the time to find that perfect present or it doesn’t seem to personal enough.  Then you will worry….do they really like that gift? Gift cards to me are the way to go in my book and truthfully most people would rather have a gift card or cash. GoWallet is a mobile and online service that allows you to purchase and store your gift cards and soon exchange them for FREE so sign up.

Watch for discounts on gift cards from your favorite retailers and restaurants and think about buying a few. You can often get a big discount by buying them at the same time.
Buy gift cards at the grocery store and earn gas reward points to save as much as $1 a gallon on gas at major stations. Like this deal Safeway has right now that offers you 4X points when you buy gift cards there!

Got a gift card you didn’t use or don’t want? You can trade them in or exchange them at sites like  or sell them at a discount. How awesome is that?
