Happy Grandparents Day!

Grandparents Day

Celebrating Grandparents Day

Sunday, 1 October is Grandparents Day: “The purpose of this special day is to link the generations which, in our fast-paced society, is dying out.  Grandparents have so much to offer, so many skills to transfer, so much good advice to give.”

If you are looking for gift ideas, CashBag has put together a few ideas to help you out – and of course, earn cash back!

While we (the young’uns) prefer to have our memories stored digitally, our elders prefer the “old ways” of having their photographs printed. What better gift than a personalised photobook. All your family-memories for them to page through over and over again?

Flowers are always a great hit. Perhaps a bouquet made up of chocolate? Something different for those special matriarchs.

My Granny told me to always look after your feet – “they have to carry you around for a long time!” A good pair of supportive shoes is always a great gift for our elders.

So, whether it’s just a phone call to remind them how much you love and appreciate them, or a fun day out for some quality time – enjoy the time you have with them.

Happy Shopping 🙂

Stand tall, stand proud.

Happy Secretary’s Day

Secretary's Day

CashBag has you covered this Secretary’s Day

Secretary’s Day, also known as Administrative Professionals’ Day, is a special day to say “Thank You”.

“Thank You” to those that keep your business running in the background, while you are free to do what you love, the way you love it.

Today recognizes the work of secretaries, administrative assistants, receptionists, and other administrative support professionals.

It seems like the support staff (and yes I am generalising here) are usually the unsung heroes of our companies. Their contributions are not always quantifiable. Unlike sales staff or operations, whose efforts can be measured. Support staff are a necessity to any business. Let’s be honest, how do you run a business without your administrative staff?

If you forgot to order flowers or chocolates or forgot to reserve a table for lunch to show your appreciation for your most trusted support staff – don’t worry CashBag has you covered :

Go to CashBag.co.za and either buy them a gift voucher from their favourite online store (it gets delivered to their inbox). Or sign them up for a monthly subscription; anything from food, wine, coffee to magazines!

Remember, with each purchase made through CashBag you are not just showing your appreciation but you earn cash back too!

To all our administrative support professionals, thank you for all your hard work!

Spring Fever Frenzy

Spring Fever Frenzy

CashBag welcomes the Spring Frenzy

Finally, Spring is here, the leaves are changing the sun is shining, now we just need to wait for the rains to round it all off nicely.

But today; open the windows, play the music too loud and celebrate a new season.

And while we are feeling the Spring fever frenzy, CashBag decided to look a little deeper as to what our customers would need the most with the arrival of this happy season:

1. The perfect Spring Clean:

I love a good solid spring cleaning! Curtains, carpets, cupboards etc. There is something cathartic about purging your home of “last season” items and home decor. Just make sure you donate your old stuff – we’re all about giving back.

2. New arrivals for Spring:

Now, if you are anything like me, you may go a little overboard on the clothing purge! This helps me feel guilt-free restocking my wardrobe. Especially because every morning I have the “nothing to wear” conundrum, plus I get to save money while shopping through CashBag. If you are a bit more conservative, spoil yourself with at least get one great item that makes you feel like it’s summer.

3. Protect the peepers

Nothing completes a summer outfit and makes you feel like one cool cat than a shiny new pair of sunnies! But remember to keep your eyes hydrated and irritation free – with the change of season comes allergies (it’s a small price to pay though). 🤧

4. Skin safety

This one is for everyone – fair or dark-skinned, male or female we all need to protect our skin from sun damage. Plus it helps to slow down the ageing process (you all know what I’m talking about). So stock up on the sunscreen, wear a funky hat and enjoy your summer days ahead!

Happy Spring-ing 🙂
