Is your home winterized yet? Now is the right time to start preparing our homes for the upcoming winter. With fall in full swing, cold weather is just around the corner. Here’s a short (but growing) to-do list I created for
myself and my hubby: Cover outdoor furniture. Bring houseplants indoors. Draft-proof doors and windows. Seal gaps and cracks around the house. Break out the heaters. And stock up on winter essentials for the family.
Speaking of winter essentials, Macy’s is offering up to 50% discount on the coolest cold weather fashion. If you think your winter wardrobe needs an upgrade, visit Macys.com to shop for sharper styles. Today you have the perfect excuse for a shopping spree since Macy’s is having a Super Saturday Sale (which started Friday). That means you get to slash an extra 25% off your purchases with Macy’s coupon codes. So pack away your summer clothes and get dressed for the season. It’s not too soon to prepare the entire family for snowy days ahead as December is literally a few weeks away.
If you’ve been thinking about buying a winter coat and haven’t yet, you probably shouldn’t delay any longer. As you may already know, you’ll always get a good deal on winter clothing when it’s not winter. You’ll catch the best deals on heavy coats in late spring or early summer when you need them the least. Nevertheless, you can still get your hands on last season’s designer items for a fraction of the original price during Macy’s clearance sales – like today. 🙂
This week’s super sale is not just about you. You’ll be pleased to know that Macy’s will donate a coat to Clothes4Souls for every coat sold. Ever heard of Soles4Souls? It is the charity responsible for distributing shoes to impoverished communities in more than a hundred countries. Clothes4Souls is a division of Soles4Souls that collects mostly excess inventories of clothes from retailers and donates them to people in need.
Did you know that over 80% of the total clothing in the US is not being recycled or reused? It’s thrown away in landfills instead. That’s at least 60 pounds of clothes that go to waste every year. Sad but true. 🙁 It is for this very reason that Clothes4Souls are reaching out to all of us via multiple channels. We’ll help their cause by purchasing at Macy’s, albeit indirectly. There are other ways to get involved, such as making a direct donation, hosting a clothing drive, or dropping off used clothes to a blue bin.
Ah, we’re so close to December I can almost feel it. The holiday rush. The celebration. The gift-giving. Don’t you think it’s rather nice to give back to the community once in a while – most especially during the holidays? I don’t want to sound preachy, but I like the idea of making a difference when it matters the most. The holiday season is after all about giving. OK, it’s pretty clear I don’t shun consumerism. Even right now I am looking for ways to take full advantage of Macy’s Thanks For Sharing shopping event. That said, I’m glad that I get to help a few causes by shopping at Macy’s.
