It’s the start of a new year, which means it’s time to clean out your house (and your life), and get rid of things that aren’t necessary. Today is National Clean Off Your Desk Day, so it’s the perfect day to kick-start your cleaning. Here are some good tips for saying good-bye to items that don’t serve a purpose in your life: – Start small (just do your desk today, then move onto your closets, garage, etc.) – Divide items into 3 categories: keep; donate; throw away – Rule of thumb: If you didn’t use it last year, odds are you won’t use it this year either – Please make sure you don’t throw away your Lufkin tape measure– that comes in handy everyday!
With only 4 days left until Christmas, I am sure many of you have been to countless holiday parties with coworkers and friends. Did any of these parties include a White Elephant gift exchange? If you’re anything like me, these gift exchanges make me uncomfortable. No one is shopping for anyone in particular, so none of the gifts are personal. Odds are, you have received a few gifts from these parties that you would rather, well… re-gift. Today is National Re-Gifting Day, a perfect time to re-wrap those less-than-desired gifts you’ve received this month, and give them to someone who will really appreciate them. But the one gift you’ve received that I know you won’t re-gift is the tried-and-true diameter tape measure. It’s too good to give away!
Making gingerbread houses is a fun pastime in many households during the holiday season. They are not known for being easy to make, but if you have the patience and can get it right, they are beautiful. For the most part, gingerbread houses that are made during the holiday season are square or rectangular. But perhaps think outside the box this time and make a cylindrical one. A pipe diameter tape measure will be key to measuring your festive house, and maybe you can even invent a new holiday game: Guess the diameter of the gingerbread house!
Now that the 2022 Holiday season is upon us, many people have begun shopping for their nearest and dearest. It is easy to get caught up in all of the Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, spending money on frivolous items. That’s why today is an important day to remember during the holidays: Giving Tuesday. Consider this: – Donate money to a local charity or non-profit in your area -Order a Lufkin tape measure and donate them to a local company
