Cheap Thrills

This won’t happen very often, but I’m going to tell you about a couple of websites where you can spend money.

When Dave and I were in New Mexico last October, I found this great hand lotion — Cedar and Sage, by Southwestern Soapworks, at www.southwesternsoapworks.com .  Now, I go through more hand lotion than anyone I know, to the point where my friends tease me about it. So this was a significant discovery. When I ran out, I checked the website and found that the online prices are quite low. I also like the story of how one night, the founder had a dream to make soap. And that’s how she and her husband ended up starting their company. I ended up talking over the phone to both of them, and they’re lovely people. So that’s my first cheap thrill.

For the next cheap thrill, check the first comment.

  1. My second cheap thrill is not really that cheap, but in the scheme of things, it’s not all that expensive. TOMS Shoes makes light, comfortable shoes, kind of like espadrilles but with a more substantial sole. They’re at http://www.tomsshoes.com , and one of the things they do is donate a pair of shoes to a needy child for every pair that’s purchased. So you’re buying shoes for two, yourself and a child who might not have any. So far, shoe drops have occurred in Argentina (10,000 pairs) and South Africa (40,000 pairs), with a U.S. shoe drop pending for this summer.

    I love these shoes. The designs are always changing, and so if you don’t see something you like, check back in another week or so. And here’s a Special Code you can use for a $5 discount — yes, it’s okay to share this. It’s 1PAIR4FEET , and you can enter that in the special code box when you order.

    I have no connection to either of these companies other than just liking them, by the way.
