TGIF! Have an awesome weekend everyone! I spent the morning visiting yard sales and toted home some very good finds. Since we are trying to green our birthdays and Christmas this year by doing second hand gifts I am off to a good start!
My finds this morning all for under $20:
20 children’s books, 5 NEW homeschool workbooks, a never used Chemistry set, a box of modeling clay, 3 unopened kites, two electronic ABCs toys, a Barbie on a Jet Ski, an unopened costume for Barbie dolls, and a rug for a girl’s bedroom. I am set for my son’s upcoming birthday now!
Okay links for today:
5 Good Reasons NOT to shop at Walmart – a great article. Although admittedly I do still shop at Wal-Mart on occasion. That is pretty much all we have in this town other than a Kohls.
A blog I am LOVING recently all about educating your toddlers called Tot School. This mom is amazing with all the activities she plans for her kids.
A new green blog has just gone live called 5 Minutes for Going Green. I am one of the writers there so be sure to check it out.
Over at Goddess of the Garden I wrote about Raw Food Weight Loss. If you want to find out how one gentleman lost nearly 200 pounds by going raw check that out.
One of my all time FAVE blogs, Crafting Daisies, has an awesome tutorial this morning for making your own story booklets.
Oh and did you see that The Environmental Working Group released their safe sunscreen report. I wrote about safe sunscreens awhile back and I picked 3 of the EWG’s top five!! Here they are again:
Lastly, a mama at Diaperswappers is selling some awesome cloth diapering and breastfeeding advocate patches. The cloth diapering one would be perfect to sew on diapers, clothing, canvas bags, ect. Very cool!
Have an awesome weekend!!!
