Tired of Adulting? No Prob-LLAMA! Instant Happy Notes + More Fun Stuff to Beat the Winter Blues

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

Being a grownup got you down? You’re never too old for a new lunchbox or a great set of colored pencils! In fact, when I spotted this Llama Lunchbox, I knew it would be perfect for holding all of my coloring and drawing supplies. It got me inspired, and since I figure I’m not alone in needing a little pick-me-up to help cure the winter blues, I put together a little list of fun and random stuff to make you smile.

Feeling happy can start with making other people smile, too! This book of 101 Instant Sticky Happy Notes can be used in your kiddos lunchbox, your spouses laptop bag, your co-workers cubicle or anywhere you and yours need a mini message of happiness. I got these in my January PopSugar Must Have Box and have been sticking them all over the place!

Winter is cold and flu season and that means lots of hand-washing to keep the germs away! Add some cuteness to your bathroom or kitchen counter with this adorable Bunny Ring Holder. It’s got a padded base and comes in other animal shapes and colors, too.

Feel like hybernating or catching an extra cat nap? This Cat Eye Sleep Mask is both fun AND functional. It’s purr-fect for helping you get more zzz’s and has gel inserts that can be chilled or warmed for added relaxation and rejuvenation anytime.

A day without wine is like a day without sunshine. And who couldn’t use a little extra sunshine this time of year?!? This set of Magnetic Dog Wine Glass Charms is the perfect accessory when you’re sipping a glass of red while watching the new season of Scandal (#TGIT everybody!), at your next book club gathering, or anytime you need a girl’s (or boy’s) night in.

Now that you’ve got dogs on your wine, you’ll want dogs on your feet! This 5-Pack of Cute Dog Socks is sure to brighten up your day or night and warm your tootsies too.

One cure for the winter blues is to create an indoor garden. This adorable Elephant Succulent Plant Holder and Flower Pot will add some greenery and cheer to your office or home. Also comes in several dog breed and other animal designs.

Already got enough potted plants? Add some tropical flare with these Pink Flamingo Mini Lawn Ornaments. Stick them in a large potted floor plant and you’ll feel bright and sunny! I have this set and they are too big for small table top plants but perfect for medium and large pots…or stick them in the snow in your front yard for fun and make the neighbors laugh!

How To Use In-Store Pickup to Finish Your Holiday Shopping Without Losing Your Mind

Some posts may contain affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

last-minute-shopping-tips

Have you run out of time and energy to finish up your holiday shopping? Or have you realized that you’ve missed the order deadline to ship your gifts without paying a fortune to get them in time? At Christmas and all year long, our TOP way to save time, hassle and money on last-minute shopping is to order online at our favorite stores that offer in-store pickup.

Shop from your computer or phone while you are at work, waiting for your kids at practice, lessons or doctor’s appointment, in line at the grocery store, at the airport waiting for your flight or to pick up guests, taking it easy at home while waiting for the pizza to be delivered. Select In-Store Pickup at checkout and let the store employees collect your items from around the store and process your order for you. It’s multi-tasking at its finest and sure to help you NOT lose your mind!

The advantages of ordering online and picking up in-store are:

  • Shop from anywhere, anytime
  • Know your items are in-stock before you leave home
  • Compare prices and selection online
  • Use online coupon codes and offers
  • No fees or shipping charges
  • Get text or email notification when order is ready to pick up
  • Usually ready in about an hour
  • Order is bagged and waiting at customer service when you arrive

Our favorite way to use this method is for Woof Woof Papa to drive, so I can just hop out and run in to the store and we don’t even have to spend time searching for parking!

This option is also great for when you are out-of-town, staying at a hotel or friends & family, and realize you need a gift at the last minute. Plus it saves the hassle of flying or traveling with gifts…just order now and pick them up at your destination!

Another advantage besides saving time, is that you can also save money. Use any current coupon code when you place your order for added savings. Many stores offer special discounts when you order online and pick up in person. The stores we most frequently use online shopping with in-store pick include:
