This post may contain affiliate links.  

Swagbucks is celebrating their birthday all day on February 27th, but they want to give YOU presents. You can play Swago (their version of bingo) all day long, filling out squares as you earn points on their site for doing things you already do online.


For each square you fill in, you get a spin on their big birthday prize wheel, where you can earn up to 2500 points with each spin.

The best part is that the points you get can be used to get free gift cards to places like Amazon, or PayPal cash!

Fill up your board and then submit your patterns to get even more spins and more chances to win big points.

The Importance (and Art) of the Thank You Note

My mother started making me write thank you notes from the moment I learned to write.  I mean, I clearly remember sending thank you notes on that paper with the dotted horizontal lines they make for kids practicing their letters.  I had to send thank you notes for everything.  Not just for birthday gifts, but for sleeping over at someone's house and for anyone who bought Girl Scout cookies from me and for all of my teachers at the end of the school year.  At the time, I was thoroughly annoyed by it.  They took forever to write and I had no idea what to say.  But my mom persisted.

And you know what, Mom?  I get it.  Mother is always right - always send the thank you note.  Do not be lazy.

What's In My Minimalist Purse

I applied minimalism to the contents of my purse right away, pretty much as soon as I decluttered my closet (which was step one for me, many years ago.)  I always hated carrying a lot of things when it made my purse get heavy and my shoulder started hurting.  But also, I was horrible at leaving my purse places when I went out at night.  It was lost and stolen so many times, I've lost count.  The number of new phones and IDs I've paid for.... shudder.  When I was in law school, my doorman at my apartment building would hold my keys at the front desk every night I went out with my best friend Meredith because I locked myself out so many times.  I've since learned to attach them to my bra strap, not to worry.  And I'm much better about keeping track of my belongings now, I swear!  Age, wisdom, and a complete ban on Jameson.

That said, I still like to keep the contents of my purse (a) essential and (b) streamlined enough to fit into a small wristlet.  Of all the purses I've lost track of, one attached to my wrist has never been among them.  I just like having my hands free in general, especially at street fests and things like that, and I've honestly been known to just stuff everything into my bra.  #GodsPockets.  Surprisingly enough, I've never done a post sharing the contents of any of my purses over the years, streamlined or not.  Which seems like a blog content staple so let's get into my very minimal and tiny purse dwellings now:
