How I Get Free Magazine Subscriptions

Real Simple

This one is new to me too! It's a super easy to get totally, completely free "paper" magazine subscriptions. Yep, they're not digital, they'll come right to your mailbox. If you've bought a magazine in the grocery store lately, you know that they can run up to $7 even for the smaller magazines. This will allow you to get those popular, expensive magazines totally free. 

Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with this company in any way. I get NOTHING if you join. :)

I just got Real Simple and People for free, but the subscriptions and the surveys change every week. Unlike most survey sites, where you have to do hundreds of surveys to get one little reward, with this one, you pretty much only need to do one short 5 minute survey PER subscription. 

So start by going to https://rewardsurvey.com and signing up with some simple information. Nothing too personal here. 

Then take the first survey and get your first subscription. Next choose the link to take last weeks survey and get one more free. Now just sit back and wait, you'll get emails about once a week with more survey offers and more totally free magazines. 

Note: It will offer you discounted subscriptions after your initial free magazine pick, just say no. You're not required to buy anything and there is no automatic renewal.

10 Things I Learned About Texas in 24 Hours

texas is hot

I recently had the opportunity to visit Dallas, Texas for the first time last week. Unfortunately, I was only able to stay about 24 hours for a business meeting. However, I did learn few things about Texas!

1. It's HOT
2. The people are the nicest you'll ever meet. At least all of the ones I met. 
3. It's HOT. 
4. The food is amazing! Try Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen! I had the Alligator Appetizer and Catfish Fillets. 
5. The freeways are the most confusing roads you'll ever meet and it will take forever to get anywhere.. I got lost 6 times in 24 hours. 
6. It's BIG. They're not lying, it's super big. The Airport, the hotels, the roads, the skyline, everything is just really big!
7. It's HOT. (Seriously, what the heck Texas? It's February.)
8. Gas is very cheap. 
9. Texan's might not fit in your stereotypes. I see more cowboy hats, big trucks and boots than I saw in Dallas. Maybe they were in hiding?
10. Still, did I mention the nicest people you'll ever meet?

Sydney Paige and Rainbow Pack Unite Buy One, Give TWO

Hi all, I love profiling amazing organizations doing good things. This week I'd like to profile Sydney Paige and Rainbow Pack Unite!


Sydney Paige and Rainbow Pack Unite
Buy One, Give TWO

It’s a huge month for Sydney Paige because of their recent team up with the new and inspiring philanthropy, Rainbow Pack. Rainbow Pack is a nonprofit organization started by founder Riley Joy Gantt when she was just ten years old with a dedication to providing elementary school students with educational tools they need to be successful learners no matter their financial circumstance. Sydney Paige has agreed to donate two of their premium backpacks for every bag purchased while Rainbow Pack has committed to fill all bags with their very own ‘homework’ supplies. This is a major twist to Sydney Paige’s Buy One/Give one mantra as they have implemented a Buy One/Give TWO model.

The Buy One/Give TWO program has been an amazing change and addition to Sydney Paige’s vision, and with the help of Rainbow Pack, they have both been able to raise awareness of the importance of education and give back to the community. Lead by young philanthropists at Rainbow Pack, it’s been an outstanding inspiration for Sydney Paige as they work together and give back.

See how Sydney Paige and Rainbow Pack have united to end the cycle of poverty:
  • Providing young students with the supplies needed to help further and encourage a higher education
  • Filling not one, but TWO donated backpacks with a full set of age-appropriate ‘homework’ supplies like pencils, erasers, crayons, etc.

Sydney Paige and Rainbow Pack both work hard to recognize the financial hardships low-income families face and have committed to dedicate their work to making a difference in the lives of underserved youth. Sydney Paige backpacks are made from eco-friendly materials of 100% cotton canvas, natural leather, nickel free hardware and/or recycled polyester and all Rainbow Pack’s ‘homework’ supplies are provided to give those children the opportunity to continue learning from home.
