Remember the good ole’ school days of having your friends over for dinner, running around the neighborhood and hosting friends over for slumber parties?

Being a brand new parent is hard work. Even if you’re not totally brand new to the whole being a new parent thing, having tiny new humans around is no easy task — regardless if it’s your first or third go around. Actually, we’re still unsure how new parents manage their day to day to do lists without completely loosing it. Here at Postable we’re all about making the task of sending snail mail as easy as sending an email. And while being a brand new parent is crazy hard work, sending out Birth Announcements, Baby Shower Thank You Cards and your general kid-related snail mail doesn’t have to be. This got us to thinking — there must be other sources out there to help new parents take some of the hard work off their shoulders. Life hacks are the bees knees and life hacks for kids are even better.
The month of May has come and gone which means new giggle-worthy links are on the horizon. By which we mean they’re here. Feel free to giggle away. Continue reading
You made it to your last semester! Holy moly. Congrats! Graduation season is among us. While going to class, joining all sorts of clubs, going to parties and bussing tables all these years have been a great deal of fun (we hope) something tells us you’re probably ready for the next chapter in your life. At the very least, you’re ready to end this one. Continue reading
Graduation season is among us. Well, almost. If you’re the one doing the graduating, chances are you’ve been dreaming of the moment where you can finally put away those books and relax (at least before the next adventure). Who knows how many endless hours you’ve spent reading and re-reading those history books? Or maybe those precious hours were spent memorizing chemical reactions. Perhaps you wish you’d spent a teeny bit more in the library and teeny bit less by the pool. Either way, you’ve worked just about as hard as you could and your well-spent hard work is about to come to an end. Whatever you’ve been studying all these years is about to pay off with the most epic graduation celebration (and hopefully a job). First things first, you’ll need to send out those graduation party invitations.
As you begin getting ready for the big ceremony, your thoughts may have wandered over to your graduation party. What will you do to celebrate this momentous occasion?! What kind of cake will you get? Will there be cup cake toppers in the shape of tiny graduation caps? Will you opt in for a photo booth equipped with your class superlatives? Continue reading

Being kind to people isn’t the first thing on everyone’s to-do list. That’s pretty unfortunate, but we’re here to say being kind is easy. There are simple ways you can extend some love to the people you care about with random acts of kindness. Put some good vibes out into your world and do something kind for someone you love (or maybe for someone you don’t even know).
Not sure where to start? Not to worry, here are 9 ideas to get your brain waves moving in the right direction. And remember, there’s really no cap on how much kindness you can give out. It’s also not necessary to spend time or money on actively showing kindness on a day-to-day basis. Acts like holding the door a little longer for someone struggling with a bunch of boxes or letting a mom and her kids go in front of you at the coffee line because she could probably stand to get a break that morning. These small acts of kindness may not seem like a whole lot, but it will no doubt affect someone’s entire day. You have that power. Continue reading
Showing mom you care this Mother’s Day is easy with a plan of action. Did you end up waiting until the very last moment to think of something special last year? Don’t make the same mistake twice. You may just end up buying mom flowers at the corner convenience store. And while there’s nothing wrong with giving mom flowers on Mother’s Day (really, go ahead and give mom that bouquet), that shouldn’t be the only thing you do. Think about all the times that mom went out of her way to make sure you had a special birthday or a special first day of school. Think about all those cookies she had baked so that you could come home to something sweet. There’s probably more times than you can remember to count. Return the favor by doing something truly out-of-the-box-spectacular this year that lets mom know you really care.
