For selfish reasons, I’m excited about Mothers’ Day 2008 (I’m graduating from Duke that day!), but there are plenty of reasons to look forward to MD2k8. First of all, we get to step back and say “thanks” to our moms (and grandmas… and don’t forget the Greats!) who basically make the entire world turn. Second, we here at Shoeboxed are trying to spread the Shoelove to all the moms out there, so hopefully we can make your lives a little easier.

A lot of moms do the majority if the bookkeeping in their households, and they typically make the majority of a family’s purchases. A great blog, The Organized Life, wrote an entry today recommending Shoeboxed as a helpful tool for moms.

A gift subscription to Shoeboxed and an hour or two of helping Mom gather her receipts is a great way to get her on track toward less paper clutter.

We couldn’t agree more, and are excited announce that any mom who signs up in the next week can get a free trial of our Receipt Mail-In program. You can get all those receipts organized and without ever having to scan anything or invest in complex file-folder organization systems. Moms should have more time for themselves, and shouldn’t have to slave away at a desk getting all those receipts scanned and organized!

Also, if you want to buy Receipt Mail-In for your favorite mom this Mothers’ Day, we’ll give you a free month of it, and even email you a PDF card that explains the gift and how to use the subscription. That way, you have something physical to give her when you are showering her with gifts over brunch.

We’re excited about being able to bring a little good to the lives of moms out there!
