I received a copy of “Do Your Laundry or You’ll Die Alone” ($14.99 value) in exchange for this promotion. Any opinions expressed here are honest and my own.
The perfect gift for the new high school or college graduate, Do Your Laundry or You’ll Die Alone is wise counsel for women of all ages, including:
Keep at least one stuffed animal.
Don’t trust the size on the clothing tag. Always try on before you buy.
A bad attitude makes your butt look big.
Reinvent yourself as often as you want. Just keep the essence that makes you, you.
Life will not grade you, but it will test you.
Do Your Laundry or You’ll Die Alone – Advice Your Mom Would Give if She Thought You Were Listening is actually a quite comical, but true book. As mentioned above, a great book to give your daughter or niece or Godchild before heading off to college. There are so many things that comes to a Mother’s head when crunch time comes and her little girl is heading out into the BIG WORLD and the big question comes….”Have I prepared her?????”
Blades does a great job delivering 271….(well actually 272 as she left room for writing down advice from others) life-lesson tidbits to get your girl on her way to independence…..from “Not Overstaying Your Welcome” to “Be the Kind of Neighbor You Want to Have”. Some tidbits are commonsense, but great reminders of the person we all NEED to be….not just our kiddos.
Great last minute grad gift…get your copy today at www.sourcebooks.com.
