Today is my last day at DollarDays. I am excited to return to school but will greatly miss being the intern here at DollarDays. I have had lots of fun working here and will miss everyone in the office. DollarDays has a unique office atmosphere that I have never experienced at any other company I have worked for. Everyone is friendly and upbeat. This office atmosphere definitely contributes to the great success this company has had and will continue to have in the future.
I have also learned a lot in the time I have been an intern. I learned about search engine optimization and how deep search engines dig for their results and how they order and filter results. I also had the amazing opportunity to witness the launch of a new website design here! I learned about all of the work that goes into a new website and how to have a successful launch. I also learned lots about marketing in several different aspects, especially in relation to social media. I cannot wait to share all I have learned with my classmates.
This last week has been very busy for me. I have been finishing up projects here in the office and packing up to get ready to drive back to Northern Illinois for a couple weeks to spend time with friends and family. A teammate of mine flew out here to Arizona on Thursday to drive back with me so I won’t be bored on the drive. I am excited to drive back because of all of the beautiful scenery here in the Southwest. There are some amazing views on the drive.
I know that anytime I am in Arizona I will be stopping at DollarDays to say hello. I could not have asked for a better experience as an intern. The future looks bright for DollarDays and I can’t wait to see how the company grows in the coming years. I would like to thank everyone here at DollarDollar days for everything that they have done for me and taught me. I will remember my summer as an intern here forever.

Why must teachers have to spend out of pocket each year to keep their classrooms stocked with supplies and instructional materials?
A June 2014 survey conducted by Agile Education Marketing and SheerId, the leading teacher verification provider, delved into how much teachers are spending of their own money and what they’re spending it on. Take a look at the information to see exactly how much our underpaid teachers spend to help our country’s children learn!
DollarDays.com continues to provide wholesale discounts to teachers 365 days a year. Many teachers pool their dollars and place a large bulk order to maximize their money. Take a look at all the back to school supplies DollarDays carries. We save you time and money!

National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day celebrates small business owners, much like the business owners DollarDays serves every day. These individuals spend countless hours nurturing and growing their young enterprises. The workload demands coupled with the lack of a hired staff, often translate into late hours and long days. There are missed family and personal events, but they love what they do because they are their own bosses.
New businesses have always been a vital, yet not fully appreciated, part of the U.S. economy. On they retail side, they bring different and unique products to the marketplace. They provide stellar and personal service support. When you call, you are more likely to get a real, live person. And unlike big national chains, they know their products. They are outstanding performers in niche markets. In manufacturing, they create many new concepts and ideas, making them creators of new products. According to the US Small Business Association, there are more than 27 million small businesses in the US today.
Celebrate National Mom and Pop Business Owners Day, every day, by showing your support…shop their stores!
Nominate your favorite Mom & Pop store here and we’ll enter them into a drawing for $5,000 in Merchandise from DollarDays!!

Some of you know that DollarDays’ CEO, Marc Joseph, authored the book, The Secrets of Retailing or How to Beat Wal-Mart! to help small businesses compete in the world of big box stores. In fact, DollarDays.com has a wealth of Marc Joseph’s business and entrepreneurial articles, focusing on small businesses for you to enjoy.
But this time, Marc didn’t do the writing; he was interviewed by Success Magazine for an article they titled “Want to write a book? Our step by step guide.” Marc gave his candid advice for wannabe authors including how writing a book can ultimately help your business. You can read the article here.

I love finding simple old world recipes and bringing them back to life. And this old world egg nog recipe is so delicious, after one sip, even egg nog nay sayers will have a glass! Or two!
This recipe is a delicious trip back in time. There are several origins of the word “nog.” One is a block of wood or a cup carved from a block of wood. I like to use a handmade palm wood cup from Thailand to sip my egg nog. An alternate definition is “a strong beer” from Norfolk, England.
For this recipe I prefer using an Oatmeal Stout. The history of Oatmeal Stout dates back to the mid to late 1800s, with the discovery that adding oats to beer made it healthier. This new creation was often considered a table beer and prescribed to nursing mothers and ailing children and believed to be a remedy for sickness in general.
Now that you know a little egg nog history, are you ready to try the best egg nog on the planet?
10 oz of oatmeal stout
4 oz bourbon (optional)
4 large organic farm fresh eggs separated
2/3 cup pure organic cane sugar
1/4 tsp fresh ground nutmeg
1/2 pinch of cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups whole milk
1 cup heavy cream
Separate the eggs, putting the whites in one bowl and the yolks in another.
Hand beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form.
In the other bowl, beat the yolks, sugar and vanilla until light in color and creamy.
Add the milk, cream, nutmeg and cinnamon, mix until well combined.
Gently fold the egg whites back into mixture with the beer and bourbon.
Enjoy your egg nog! Happy holidays from Josh Froelich, DollarDays’ resident purveyor of fine food, drink and other random finds (he even makes his own wine). And of course, happy holidays, merry egg nog and good health from all of us at DollarDays.

Your employees love to be recognized during the holiday season (actually any time of the year!). How ever you reward your employees—bonuses, gift cards or gifts—they’ll appreciate your thoughtfulness.
But what do you do when you have 24 employees and have a small budget? If you bought 24 $25 gift cards, you’d spend $600. That’s too much for a small business! Here is how to save lots of money AND give a qaulity gift that will put a smile on each employee’s face.
Do it on the cheap at DollarDays.com. Order a case (24) of high quality travel mugs at wholesale pricing, pick up 24 $5 Starbucks gift cards and put them in festive gift bags (sold by the case of 24)! No one but you will know you only spent $253 ($10.55 per employee) on 24 high quality coffee travel mugs, each with a $5 gift card to Starbucks inside, all in festive holiday bags. It’s a clever way to save money and it’s a gift that will be appreciated.
See the high quality coffee travel mugs here.
