We at Faith Investment Services pride ourselves in thinking "outside the box."   It doesn't mean shaking things up just for the sake of commotion, though! For us it means refusing to be typical or to settle for status quo. Perhaps the articles we've included this time will spur you to do a little "outside the box" thinking too!

Enjoy this summer day:)

Working for the National Park Service

Do you like to travel? To help people? To experience nature? 

The U.S. Park Service offers opportunities to work in more than 400 national parks and offices-from Maine to Guam, the Virgin Islands to Alaska, and anyplace in between. They partner with communities across the country to preserve their history and create places for outdoor fun.

There are many different ways you can become involved. Are you looking for a full-time, permanent job? They've got those. Or maybe you'd prefer to work in parks for a few months as a seasonal ranger? They've got some of those, too. (See USAJOBs for listings of both permanent and seasonal jobs.) Are you a student looking for a meaningful internship or someone with some extra time who'd like to volunteer? You can find internship and volunteer opportunities to suit your needs and interests.  Go work at the Parks-in an "office" like no other.

Grocery Delivery 101 

Grocery shopping can be a huge drain on your time, especially when you have to go to the market during the peak shopping hours after work or on the weekends. The aisle jams, the lines, the screaming children. There really are not many things I dread more. The dentist, maybe. If you have never considered using a grocery delivery service, here are a few things to think about when getting started.

Delivery Fees-

Ask about delivery fees and also ask if the food delivery workers accept tips. Some companies will factor gratuity into the price while other drivers depend on tips to supplement their wages.

Scheduling-

You will need to be home when your groceries arrive. In a bind, you could leave coolers on the front porch but delivery companies do require the signature of an adult for alcohol or tobacco products.

Online Specials-

Unfortunately, having your groceries delivered will not allow you to use paper coupons but don't forget to look for online specials. These discounts are only available to delivery customers and can really help balance some of the extra money you pay for delivery services. 

Quality-

Since you won't be able to handpick your produce, be sure to take a close look at everything as soon as possible after you have your groceries delivered. If you notice that quality is an issue, be sure to call and note this to a manager. You are paying for this service and quality should not suffer.

 You may still have to go to the grocery store for perishable items or last minute menu changes but it's nothing like navigating those crowded aisles for the better part of your Saturday. Call your local market, see if they offer grocery delivery service, and you won't be sorry!
