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!)

 

$1.99 & FREE shipping for TWO custom handbag hangers July 13, 2010

Ok, so what’s a handbag hanger and why do I need one? Well, when you go out to dine, where does your handbag go? The back of your chair so that you can be pick-pocketed? Your lap so you can drop food on it? The floor so you can bring home who-knows-how-many icky germs?

Here’s the solution! You need a handbag hanger! ArtsCow’s “great bag hanger provides an easy way to hang your purse or handbag. The hanger folds into a disc shape and are the perfect size for carrying in your purse. Customize with your own personalized [photo or] logo (1 1/4″ in diameter), with enamel coating for long time protection.”

Normally $6.99 each plus shipping, use code HANGHOOK to get TWO for a total of $1.99 with FREE shipping!

Some ideas… Use photos of your kids to make gifts for their grandmothers! Use your company logo or a friend’s company’s logo for extremely inexpensive give-aways or gifts! Use a photo of your pet so Fluffy or Fido is always with you! Perhaps a photo of the sunset from your latest vacation to whisk you away to paradise!
