Save your life for under $20: Road ID August 16, 2010

Road IDI don’t know about you, but over the years I’ve managed to tuck my driver’s license into every sports bra I own in an effort to be safe when biking, running, and walking outdoors. Well, here’s an even better solution that just may save your life.

Road ID makes just that — ID that you can wear on your body while out on the road. Their products range from the Wrist ID Sport (pictured in this post), for just $19.99, to a band for your ankle, a pouch to put on your shoe, or even a simple ID that fits on your shoe laces. You can print up to 6 lines of text on the ID, and you can always order a replacement ID to fit on your strap if you ever move or need to change emergency contact info.

Right now, you can SAVE $1 OFF your order when you enter code TAF1238 at checkout. This brings the Wrist ID Sport, shipping and all, to just $20.48 (for an order shipping to Dallas).

If you know an athlete who doesn’t yet have one of these, I’d urge you to pass this deal along. I received the Wrist ID Sport as a Christmas gift from my in-laws, and it brings me great peace of mind. It even encourages me. The last line of text on my band says, “STRONG COURAGEOUS MOMMY.” If that doesn’t inspire you, I’m not sure what will!

Feel clueless as to what you’d put on your Road ID? Here’s what is on mine, to give you an idea:

  • MY NAME / YEAR OF BIRTH (Their site said having your year of birth is helpful for medical personnel.)
  • CITY, TX  USA (Just in case I am ever exercising on vacation – or in a sporting event – in another country.)
  • HOME 222-222-2222
  • HUSBAND 333-333-3333 (It literally just says “husband” instead of his name, and this is his cell number.)
  • SISTER 444-444-4444 (It literally just says “sister” instead of her name, and this is her cell number.)
  • STRONG, COURAGEOUS MOMMY (This helps me to keep going when I want to quit.)

Thanks, RetailMeNot, for the code!

(This is a re-post from April. I thought it was worthy of a re-post after vacationing with athletic friends this past weekend and discovering they hadn’t yet heard of Road ID, an invaluable piece of safety gear in my mind!)

 

$1/lotion, $2/fragrance mist: Dark Kiss by Bath & Body Works August 10, 2010

Dark KissI heard on the DL yesterday that Bath & Body Works has a stunning new fragrance that is just making its debut — Dark Kiss. A friend of mine was shopping there yesterday and sent me an email right away! Their site describes Dark Kiss as  “a seductive blend of dark berries with a kiss of vanilla to unleash your most primal passions.” Ooh, la la! Seriously, though, she said this was great stuff!

Right now, Bath & Body Works has sample bottles of their Dark Kiss body lotion (2 oz.) on sale for just $1, and their Dark Kiss fragrance mist (1 oz.) on sale for just $2.  This deal is available in the store and on-line (though you’d have to pay shipping), and no coupon is needed.

Hmm… I’m wondering if B&BW is trying to bite into all the vampire hoopla in the movies, books, etc. (Yes, pun intended!)

Welcome back from our long weekend! I hope you enjoyed all of the holiday foods at those 4th of July parties. Now it is back to reality… So I went for a run last night for the first time in a week… If you’re like me, always searching for healthy recipes for our family, then you’ll appreciate this AMAZING deal on Weight Watchers Magazine!

No, you don’t need to be a Weight Watchers member or even aspiring member to get a lot out of this magazine!
