GIVEAWAY: Cubbie Cup- Snack/Sippy in One! (US/CAN) -CLOSED-

Winner This is the best cup ever!  With 2 toddlers I always have 2 cups and all kinds of bowls or bags with snacks when we leave the house.  Now I just grab this super cool cup and I hear a lot less whining :)  And that's the goal right? lol The Cubbie Cup is BPA & PVC free and spill resistant.  I always laugh when I see "spill resistant" because I have bought MANY cups claiming that, and the result is always a milk trail along my floor.  BUT this cup left no trails!  wahoo!  My boy would even fling it and it wouldn't leak!  If you really try you could muster a minor spill, but this is far superior than most of the sippy cups I own.   And I own A LOT. As for the snack part, the food stays nicely contained all the while being easy for little hands to get what they want.   The only bad thing about it is that I don't currently have 2 of them, because my daughter wants to use it as well. :) We went on a walk the other day and my son happily held his Cub

GIVEAWAY: Household Traditions Dishwasher Detergent! (US/CAN) -CLOSED-

Winner I've been using  Household Traditions Powdered Dish Detergent for over a week now and it's been working great!  I don't even need to use a rinse agent!  Dishes come out clean and unspotted.  That's all I ask for. :) There are no: chlorine phosphates fillers  fragrances It's nice having a non-toxic way of getting the job done.  It also won't clump and it can be used in hard or soft water.  You can get 5lbs. of Household Traditions Powdered Dish Detergent for $19.99. Before using this I had a habit of keeping bowls and pans in the dishwasher because the first run through didn't do the job.  I re-washed a bowl for a week and a half  Why didn't you just hand wash it you ask??   l a z y Anyway, as I'm writing this I realize that since I've been using Household Traditions I haven't had to do that anymore!  And believe me, it's not because I've been pre-washing. :) Tropical Traditions is giving away 5 lbs.

Living Frugally Starts By Refusing to Conform to Traditional Consumerism (Guest Post)

Guest Post by Monique If there were a way to measure the number of times that the word “frugal” has appeared recently in both online and offline articles, undoubtedly, the trend would show an escalating upward rise over the past few years. Over ten million people lost their jobs over the past decade, and although roughly 20% of those lost jobs have been regained, nearly one out of three American households have been forced by economic conditions to realize the true value of a single dollar in today’s world. For many, the process has been grueling, but for those that like a challenge, the learning process has been filled with minor triumphs. Victory  gardens  have found a new following, and living “green” can produce value from common sense conservation by simply lowering the thermostat. Living frugally need not mean living cheaply, but one must resist the constant stream of messaging that encourages all consumers to buy, buy, and buy some more. Minimalism may be a pejorative

See my Custom Cupcakes from Salt Cake City :)

Did you do anything fun for Father's Day?  Awhile ago I won a dozen custom cupcakes to Salt Cake City from I Heart Salt Lake .  I got some hiking themed cupcakes for my husband.  Aren't they great!?  I love the compass and the rocks. The one with my husband's name on it was eaten on arrival so it didn't make it into the picture. :):)   Jennifer at Salt Cake City was SO nice and easy to work with. She also does custom cakes.  These are some of my favorites : Not only were the cupcakes pretty, but they were also GOOOOOD!  You can even eat the toppers since they are made of marshmallow.   I love them so much I'm considering taking cake classes . :)  And Salt Cake City....awesome name! --I was not asked to do a review.  Just felt the need. :) .
