Happy Friday! This weeks’ favorite are filled with IG, Ibotta, a funny image, typography videos, Sharpie Brushes (whhhattt?!), this week’s wish list, and post highlights.
I also promise to have a post coming up with an insight on my latest adventures and why I’ve been so busy.
If you’re new to My Urban Family, welcome! Each Friday I round up my favorites from the past week – videos, photos, stories, funny items, and products. Let’s dive in!
I have been soooo busy lately catching up on work, but I still plan on sharing my travel adventures soon (and by soon, I mean I have a post half written… getting there!). But for now, you’ll have to see peeks from my IG account. This is the back of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland – the inside was great too – but I loved the architecture of the whole building.
Saving Money with Ibotta
Have I mentioned Ibotta before? I may have, but about a week or two ago I saved $18 on one grocery trip so I thought it was the perfect time to share again. That $18 included $3.50 back on a bag of Popchips that only cost me $3.00. Free food tastes better, right? Plus, I’ve obsessed with Popchips.
Ibotta is a phone app where you find cash back rebates on all sorts of products, including groceries. Use my link or my referral code GRKVW to get $10 for trying the app (plus you send me $5 – thanks!). And if you sign up with my link, we become team members on the app – which means we work together towards getting bonus money each month depending on how many rebates we each use.
Guess I’ll Die…
My husband has a habit of showing me memes that he thinks I’d find funny late at night, when I’m half asleep and trying to wrap up the day. The other day he showed me this one and I laughed for about 10 minutes because I’ve never seen an image that was more “me” than this one.
Good Typography Can Save the World
Ok, saving the world may be an exaggeration. But being a graphic designer, I’ve always felt that good design can really help the world in so many situations. This video takes a few semi-recent events and shows how a good designer could have at least saved the day, if not the world.
Apparently these Sharpie Brush Tips are not new, but they’re new to me and I am excited! I haven’t ordered a set yet, but next time I feel like treating myself these are going to be in my cart. Does anyone else have these already?
This Week’s Wish List
Each week I find myself adding products to my Amazon wishlist – it’s getting slightly out of hand. But it’s still fun so I decided to make it a part of my weekly post so you can also see what I have my eye on. If you have something fun you’ve found I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
The post highlights section is another section I want to start each week. I am going to highlight new and old My Urban Family posts as well as my favorite posts from other bloggers.
