7. This is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Check out this blog from Charlotte Smarty Pants to find out what you need to know about mammograms.

8. And last, but not least, the Creative Containers Sale (Buckhead Betties Manufacturers Sale) starts on the 15th. Mark your calendar and stay tuned for specific dates and times - we will run a Smarty Alert next week. Here is our blog from the spring, which has some great tips.

The flu is in full-effect at my son's preschool. At least we can all get it now and hopefully be healthy for the holidays, right? :D

Can we know ahead of time what time the Creative Containers sale starts? That way I can plan accordingly since it starts next Thursday and you usually post weekend events on Wednesday? Thanks
