I remember them, they were called S&H Greenstamps when I was a kid. It was fun.

They say it is better to be poor and happy than rich and miserable, but how about a compromise like moderately rich and just moody?

You are so right about feeling only as old as you feel. Sometimes when I put my age down, I can't believe where all the time has gone. Am I really that ancient? LOL! Nope, not in my heart and mind!
Have a good day!

Dance as though no one is watching you, love as though you have never been hurt, sing as though no one can hear you and live as though heaven is on earth.

Thanks Lorraine~
I think I will check out that link and see if I can start saving up again! Did talking about those stamps give away our ages? Nobody else has replied! That's okay with me, at least we remember the fun we had in waiting for something special!

I do remember them! It was fun as a kid to watch my Mom rack up the points. We'd spend hours looking through the catalog & debate what we'd be saving for. They still exist but now they are called greenpoints. I haven't seen them offered in my town but I guess they must be somewhere. It says you can earn them online too. Here's the link so you can check it out: www.greenpoints.com

Whatever happened to those? Does anybody remember saving up for things with those little stamps when they were young? I was talking with my brother and we thought it taught us how to save up for things when we were little. We were always so excited to see how many more pages/books we had to save up to get something from the catalog. Maybe they need to bring those back to teach us that we need to save up for things instead of putting it on a charge card! Thoughts on this???
