Want a great way for your family to be organized?

image

Then head to Target to their dollar section, or shop online @ www.target.com!

With all the many things that I do, & the many hats I wear, list writing is imperative for my family!

If I don’t write it, then it sometimes doesn’t happen, which can be frustrating.

Writing a list is not only good for you, but for your children as well.

They can use lists like these, or Post-It’s, but teaching them this skill will stay with them forever!

The pads I found in Target are called, “Task Pads”, & are only $1 each!

Similar pads I found in Papyrus & Neiman Marcus were over $10! ~Fab find for less!

Happy planning!

Want great recycle bags for your fruits & veggies that extend freshness?

image

Then head to Stop & Shop, or Amazon.com for recycle fruit & veggie bags!

Half of my shopping cart weekly in the market is filled with fruit & vegetables. Therefore, I wanted to find bags to both take & store them in.

There are so many different types of bags, & price ranges to choose from, so I picked three (All found on Amazon).

b.b Begonia 4 piece set @ $13
Flip & Tumble 5 piece set @ $8.50
Bring It 12 small piece set @ $10

Not only are our landfills filling up, plastic bags take a long time to decompose!

Ask your supermarket manager to order produce bags, & you will see how longer your produce lasts.

Happy storing in a better way!

Want a natural approach to seasonal allergies for your children?

image

Then head out & stock up on saline nasal spray, homeopathic eye drops, Boogie Wipes & netting!

As a mother of a child who suffers from allergies, I have tried everything!

The things that have worked for us are, natural preservative free saline by BabyGanics, Similasan Allergy Eye Relief drops, Boogie Wipes (made with saline, my fave), & netting for infants/toddlers (baby carriers, strollers & for Pack & Plays).

What an allergist has taught us, is that netting can prevent some allergies from little noses & eyes.

When you come in from the outdoors, change your child’s clothing, & wash his or her face, then use saline to clean out their nasal passages.

Boogie Wipes are the greatest invention for wiping & blowing noses! Made scented or unscented, these moist towelettes, are ones that kids love!

Depending on their age, if eye drops are needed, ask your pediatrician if you could use them.

It is important to do all of the above because your clothing, body & hair acts as a magnet for pollen, which can make symptoms worse.

Keep windows closed both at home & in the car, as well as make sure to change any air filters if you have a central air system.

My mantra is natural first, then if that doesn’t work, it is wise to talk to your doctor about other alternatives.

Happy Spring!

Want to know how to make popcorn in a healthier way?

image

Then head to Trader Joes, or your local supermarket!

There is nothing like homemade popcorn, & another snack that your family will love!

Microwave popcorn not only smells like plastic, it can omits toxins, which is harmful to your health.

Oprah, Shape Magazine, & many other websites have discussed the concerns of gasses being released from the plastic lining as well.

A better choice is either an air popper, or making it my favorite way… on the stove!

Our family recipe is 1/2 cup of Organic popcorn, 2 tbs. Organic canola oil or Organic coconut oil, & sea salt.

Heat a large pasta pot in medium heat, then add the oil, & kernels.

Next cover with a lid and shake lightly after the popcorn begins to pop.

When you don’t hear the kernels popping, remove from the heat, & add salt to taste.

This snack is full of fiber, is a healthy snack, & one your family will devour!

Happy popping!
