Green Stamps

Accumulate and Redeem

Did you make a New Year's Resolution to read more blogs? If so, take a look at this one by my smart funny facebook friend, Paula Lee Bright:
Almost 60? Really??

If you ever helped your mom collect and organize savings stamps from the grocery store, then you'll love Paula's recent post of holiday nostalgia:

"Mom, Green Stamps and Me,
or How I Learned About Love"

The most popular stamps nationwide were S & H Green Stamps, but when I was growing up in St. Charles, Missouri, we saved stamps from the local supermarket, Hedges & Hafer. One year, we got my brother a set of suitcases and a backgammon game; now those were pretty cool stamp prizes, a cut above the usual blender or alarm clock!

For an even better stamp story, check out Paula's blog . . . and enjoy!
