We have a granddaughter graduating next month. Thankfully we are near to her so we can celebrate this big occasion with our family. We are very proud of her. She has scored a big scholarship at Oregon State University so her financial load has been reduced significantly. Now comes the big decisions about what gift to give. That part is always hard.
Here is a little money saving tip for you...free postage! If your graduation/Father's Day gift needs to travel across the miles, you know that the postage can be almost as much as the gift itself AND the post office can make getting it there very difficult. (See earlier post..The Post Office and Me) Thankfully, all those bad post office days are behind me. I am now a converted online shopper. I even signed up to be an Amazon associate. It seems that they provide free shipping on a lot of their items and even have a way to pay for a year's worth of shipping with one fee on Amazon Prime. I can tell you now that no matter who I order from online now, the shipping needs to be free. I plan ahead so I am not in a rush and pretend I am standing at the giftee's front door on the day it arrives. I have a slide show I posted over at my Gift Boomer blog and in the sidebar of this blog. A lot of the items shown there have free shipping or the user can get the Amazon Prime membership with a free trial offer...just in time for graduation or Father's Day.

Loved the camel jumping!
Next time blogger decides to take over. Publish, then immdiately go to edit and save as draft. That will remove it from the blog so you can edit it. Then publish it when you are ready.ReplyDelete
