What If?



What if more businesses decided to create more trade situations?  Example: Bookmans in Mesa, Arizona.  Not only do they have a cafe with great food (Mrs. Green has not tested it yet but stay tuned) and fair trade coffee, they accept trade-ins for food and drinks.  I think they may be the first cafe in the country (maybe even the world!) to do that.  Know of any others?  Please post if you do.

And just running the numbers: Bookmans Entertainment Exchange has bought 21,951,188 items since January 15, 2005.  I can’t get my head around how much “stuff” that would look like but talk about waste reduction!

So what if Bookmans has started yet another trend?  After all, they were leading the pack way before recycling books was the thing to do.  What if I could go into a resale shop with clothes I know longer wear, or better yet, shoes and got lots of trade for good meals? Food for thought?  pun intended….

    Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was super
    long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new
    to the whole thing. Do you have any recommendations for first-time blog writers?
    I’d really appreciate it.

    1. Mrs. Green says:

      I actually think my number one recommendation is to get started and keep at it. I just got a comment from a blog I wrote about 3 years ago & we keep putting them out there. And shorter is not always better. If your content is good, people will read your blog. I am working on writing shorter ones as well because everyone does seems to be so busy. Good luck and remember we do feature guest blogs if there are connected to a sustainable planet and of course well written!

    We are a bunch of volunteers and opening a brand new scheme in our community.
    Your site provided us with valuable info to work on. You’ve performed a
    formidable activity and our whole neighborhood will probably be grateful
    to you.

    1. Mrs. Green says:

      Thanks for writing and good luck with your new venture.

    This is my first time pay a quick visit at here and i am genuinely happy
    to read all at single place.

    1. Mrs. Green says:

      And that makes us genuinely happy. Welcome to Mrs. Green’s World.

  4. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. But think of
    if you added some great photos or videos to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this blog
    could certainly be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
    Terrific blog!

      I think you advice is great and very well taken. Don’t want to make excuses but it’s usually about time. Between my two radio shows, my public speaking, other social media activities & working on the growth of the company, rarely do I feel there are enough hours in the day! But you are spot on and points well taken. Stay tuned for more pictures and short videos. Thanks for caring enough to write. Are you interest in submitting a guest blog?

  5. Highly energetic blog, I enjoyed that a lot. Will there be a part 2?

    Stop by my web blog: Lita V. Shoat

      Thanks for your kind words. There are so many blogs inside of me there are times when I feel I could burst. I need to “make” the time to get more out there. Stay tuned & hope you will subscribe to the blog.

  6. Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell
    and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
    LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
