Over 900 Cars Pay For Each Other’s Orders At Minnesota Dairy Queen

It started as a random act of kindness with one stranger, and turned into the sweetest story about a Dairy Queen ever

Because even cold winter temperatures will not keep Minnesotans from enjoying a frozen ice cream treat, a local Dairy Queen was hopping the other day. While people who live in the cold enjoying cold things isn’t newsworthy, this enormous act of kindness and paying it forward sure is. It started with one man who paid for the ice cream for the car behind him at the DQ drive-thru, and it ended up with nearly 1,000 cars also taking part in paying it forward.

Tina Jensen, the store manager the Dairy Queen in Brainerd, MN, told CNN a man came by the drive-thru window on Thursday and asked if he could pay for his meal and for the car behind him. She said that while this type of thing happens on occasion, it usually runs its course within a dozen cars or so. This time, the pay-it-forward chain of kindness lasted for two and half days, and over 900 cars participated. As a result, the store raked in $10,000 in sales.

“There’s all different types of ways to help people,” Jensen told CNN. “I think this touched a lot of people that we didn’t even know it touched, deeper than we know. And you don’t know what’s going on in a person’s life.”

Jensen kept the community updated through the store’s Facebook page. After the DQ closed for the night last Thursday, one car left $10 to begin the chain for the following day.

“Not sure if its the sun shining, or the Christmas Spirit is already here… But it started with one and we are now at about 48 cars that have paid it forward! Lets keep this caring train going!” the post read.

No, I’m not crying, you’re crying over people buying each other Blizzards and Dilly bars. Whew, do we all need little pick-me-up stories like this right now or what?

“During times like these it kinda restores your faith in humanity a little,” customer Heidi Bruse told CNN. “The way the world is now you see a lot of anger, tension, and selfish behavior. What we witnessed was pure kindness and it was a breath of fresh air really.”

The restaurant industry as a whole has faced enormous hardship this year due to the coronavirus pandemic and the utter failure of Congress to offer sustainable financial relief to restaurant workers. Jensen said being open at half-capacity and takeout orders only has been difficult. But this streak of kindness provided a much-needed burst of positivity and hope amid the stress.

“No matter what’s going on, take care of each other, be positive, be happy, and don’t focus on the negative, we’ll get through it,” she said.

7 Time Saving Tips For Shopping at Costco

Having a Costco membership is sure to save you money. But what about precious time? They say time is money, so here are 7 time-saving tips for the next time you go shopping at Costco.

7 Time Saving Tips For Shopping at Costco! Great ideas to save time shopping at Costco. They say time is money, so learn the best time-saving tips for the next time you shop at Costco.

Time Saving Tips For Shopping at Costco

I love shopping at Costco but it always takes much more time than I planned. After going to Costco with one of our Living Locurto team members, Naomi, I was shocked by how organized and quick she was! As a mom of three and apparently an expert Costco shopper, Naomi has a lot of great tricks and tips up her sleeve! I asked her to share a few time saving Costco shopping tips to help us out during this busy holiday season.

They say time is money, so here are 7 time-saving tips for the next time you go shopping at Costco.

7 Time Saving Tips For Shopping at Costco! Great ideas to save time shopping at Costco. They say time is money, so learn the best time-saving tips for the next time you shop at Costco.

7  Ideas to Save Time Shopping at Costco

We know life can be a struggle. It’s hard to get it all done, especially during the holidays. We hope these simple tips will help save you time and money the next time you shop at Costco. For more time saving tips, check out –> these great organization ideas here.

 

1. Know The Costco Parking Lot

Getting in and out of the parking lot can be a challenge. Avoid the traffic jams and find out if your Costco has a back driveway. Many Costco stores do! If your Costco has a back or lesser used driveway, treat it as your own personal road to retail bliss. It may sound crazy, but parking in the back of the parking lot will save you time just because of the ease of getting in and out of the parking lot.

 

2. Know The Store Layout

Knowing the store layout is just as important as knowing the parking lot. My favorite time-saving Costco tip is to take a list, stick to it, and know where exactly everything is in the store. If you need something from the back of the store, avoid going down the middle aisles. Stick to the side aisles and avoid the throngs of customers jockeying for position around the sample tables.

 

3. Avoid The Busiest Times

Playing bumper carts is no fun. Do a little research and find out when the best times to visit your Costco store are. Generally, Costco is busiest on the weekends, the day or two before a major holiday, or on the first day of a new coupon book.  One of the quietest times to shop at Costco are the days in between coupon books. If you aren’t buying anything on a coupon, go in between sales and enjoy the wide aisles all to yourself.

 

4. Stick To A List

It is so easy to be distracted by all the new shiny items Costco has on display. Stay strong! I’ve shopped so much at Costco that I have developed a master list of items I buy regularly. At home, I’ll review the list and mark which items I need to buy. Then when I arrive at Costco, I’m armed with my list and plan and it seriously saves me time AND money! Click here for cute free printable lists.

5. Skip The Samples

Ah, the samples. Everyone loves the Costco samples. Steer clear, as tasty as they may look! This is a time pitfall at Costco, with hordes of shoppers gathering around waiting for the toaster oven timer to ding. Be honest with yourself: You can live without the little morsel, but you’ll never get your precious time back…move along!

 

6. Look For A Fast Cashier

Sometimes the longest line is also the fastest line. Look for a cashier that is really moving customers through quickly. Head for a line with two Costco employees (one scanning and one loading the cart up). If you shop as much as I do at Costco, you may even find a favorite cashier that is always super fast and efficient.

 

7. Have Your Car Trunk Ready To Load

Make sure your trunk is empty so that loading your Costco purchases into your car will be a breeze. Costco doesn’t provide shopping bags, but don’t fall for the stiff cardboard boxes they offer to hold your groceries! Instead, bring your own shopping bags and load your purchases up yourself.

Make sure you have a good insulated bag ready for your frozen items. This may sound counter-intuitive to saving time, but once you arrive home, simply carrying the bags into your home will be so much easier. And you won’t have that stiff cardboard box to deal with.

Amazon Prime Members Save 10% at Whole Foods

Did you know your Amazon Prime membership has more perks than two day shipping? In addition to free videos, photo storage, music, or being on a first name basis with every one of your mail, UPS, and FedEx delivery people (an unspoken joy of my Prime addiction), Amazon just announced Prime members will save 10% on sale items at Whole Foods.

It’s a little unclear why Amazon decided to only discount the already on sale items each week, but who am I to look a gift coupon in the mouth? The program is available right now in Florida, but will be rolling out to all stores sometime this summer. We checked it out, and it’s a simple way to save while you shop. All you have to do download the Whole Foods app and scan the QR code at checkout. The app clearly displays the items on sale at your local Whole Foods, so it’s easy to plan your shopping trip and see where you can save even more.

But wait, there’s more! As an added bonus for Prime members, select cities are also offering free 2-hour delivery. I live in New York City, aka—the land where all things are delivered directly to your door. If you’ve never experienced the joy of having someone else lug groceries around town for you, you’re going to want to get in on this. It’s magical.

 

Finally, if you have the Amazon credit card, you can get up to 5% back at Whole Foods and Amazon.com. The moral of the story here? Amazon is poised to take over the world, and is kindly bestowing extra discounts on all the little people like you and me. I’m not mad about it.

If you aren’t an Amazon Prime member, you can sign up here (they even have a free 30-day trial option). Learn more about the Amazon discounts at Whole Foods here.

We all have those certain gifts that are required of us each year. You know, the ones we have to buy but really don’t want to spend a lot of time or money?  We all have a few of them whether it’s our I-Don’t-Really-Know-You-But-Live-By-You-Neighbors, teachers, church friends, co-workers, or mailman. We still want to to say “I’m thinking of you”… but are sick of buying the same candle and hand soap. Here is your must-buy gift list for all those presents you are obligated to give (but want it to be something nice!).

This post is not sponsored. These are items that myself and other TodaysMama editors really love and are giving out to our friends!

Want Alexa to do your laundry? Now she can!

Alexa can tell you what the weather will be, play your favorite song, schedule calendar events, and now she’ll be able to do your laundry!

Sears just recently signed a deal with Amazon and announced they plan to sell Kenmore-branded appliances on Amazon.com.  Sears also said Kenmore Smart appliances will be integrated with Amazon’s Alexa platform.

“The launch of Kenmore products on Amazon.com will significantly expand the distribution and availability of the Kenmore brand in the U.S.,” Sears CEO Eddie Lampert said in a statement.

Sears said a new “Kenmore Smart” skill for Amazon Alexa will allow customers to control their appliances — changing the temperature on an air conditioner without leaving the sofa, for example. It will be like telling your kids to do the dishes, but now it will actually get done.  Can you imagine??  I wonder if she can yell at me once it’s done and then offer me words of encouragement as I prep dinner.

“Voice is a natural interface for the smart home, so we’re thrilled that customers can now simply ask Alexa to interact with their Kenmore Smart appliances,” said Charlie Kindel, Director of Alexa Smart Home. “We’re excited that Kenmore has added Alexa functionality to these products and we think customers will love the convenience of cooling their home, starting their laundry, and more, using only their voice.”

Alexa-enabled appliances may be the start to robots taking over the world, but if they can figure out a way to clean my boys’ bathroom and fold all my laundry, I’ll gladly give up all control.  We just know the world is truly coming to an end when even robots won’t scrub pee off the bathroom floor molding.
