June Sponsor Shout Out

Charlotte@Living Well on the Cheap  —  June 24, 2014 — 1 Comment

Happy Tuesday, my friends! Did you have a great weekend? We have been really making the most of these long summer days with lots of time spent outside (despite it being so oppressively, mindnumbingly hot). Maybe it’s because I’ve been so busy having fun that I’m a little late this month with my sponsor shout out post, but better late than never!

Sprigs Jewelry and Accessories is my newest sponsor! Ashley has has over 100 items to choose from and they are all adorable so you’re sure to find something that you or someone you know would love. She also has lots of options for customizing colors and finishes so if you don’t see exactly what you’re looking for just ask! The majority of her creations are earrings but this simple and elegant birthstone bracelet is actually my favorite.

Little Eli is the brainchild of friends Amelia and Meghan. Meghan makes jewelry, Amelia works with concrete, and together the two of them have some seriously covet-worthy creations, like their new line of concrete jewelry! They also have several pieces that would make great gifts for wedding season. They’re on a brief hiatus while they expand and move studios but you can still view some pretties in their Etsy shop.

Every month I like to feature a worthy nonprofit. Goodwill has been the victim of an unfortunate email rumor for some years now claiming that it’s a for-profit business whose CEO makes over a million dollars every year, but according to snopes.com that rumor is false. I LOVE shopping at Goodwill. If you’re local to Baton Rouge, the new one on Burbank near Bluebonnet is really nice.

Have a great day, y’all!

    RE: Goodwill. Everbody must make their own decision about whether or not it is good bargain to donate or shop there. It is always wise to verify what you hear and read, especially when it comes via email. Snopes only addresses rumors, but it might be a good idea to cast your net further. The truth is non-profit organizations like Goodwill can be an excessively profitable place for the CEO and other company execs, especially when you compare their enormous compensation packages (salary, perks, and bonuses) to that of their average worker. I don’t mind that the top dogs earn big money, but I object when there is a great disparity in wages between management and employees. Let’s not forget the legal loophole that Goodwill is using to pay some disabled workers subminimum wages. I believe many credible news sources and other outlets have reported on both issues. Here are two related links at the Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/john-hrabe/the-worst-corporation-in-_b_1876905.html and http://www.huffingtonpost.com/john-hrabe/goodwill-minimum-wage_b_3246824.html
