Check out this AWESOME deal on bed sheets...



My wonderful wife was able to procure bed sheets from www.1500threads.com as a review item.  When I talked to some friends and family members about them they were very jealous at the thread count, an amazing 1500, I didn't know they even went up that high.  I was worried at first that they would not fit our double pillow top mattress, however the Ivory colored fitted sheet was plenty deep enough and fits with room to spare.  We have had them on the bed for about a week now and there is a noticeable difference between our previous sheet set, you can just feel the softness of these sheets and pillow cases.  When I wake up in the morning I feel as if the sheets are swaddling me in comfort, to the point that I almost don't want to get up in the morning.  Luckily a long weekend is coming up, so hopefully I can enjoy that swaddling sensation a little longer over the next few days.

Guest reviewer...Josh (Betsy's Husband)

Betsy...

Extreme Couponing 101-How to Save on Organics



How to Save on Organics

Shopping Organic can be expensive but there are several simple ways to save!  You will be pleasantly surprised at how many great coupons are available for organic goodness, and most are printables making it super easy to save too!  A few more ways to save big when shopping organic are knowing what is worth buying organic and what is not, shopping generic and in season, and staying on top of store ads and coupon match-ups. I have put together a list of coupon links and helpful tips to save you lots of green on your green shopping trips! 

Use Coupons:

There are loads of printable coupons for organics out there, you just need to know where to find them. Here is a good list of sources for printable coupons.  If there is a company you enjoy, check out their website.  Odds are they have coupons on their site for you.

Consider Generics:

Many grocery stores now have their own organic lines:

Publix - Greenwise Market
Whole Foods - 365 Organic
Giant Eagle - Nature's Basket
Target - Archer Farms Organic

Know what is worth buying organic and what is not!

According to the Environmental Working Group lots of our fruits and veggies are covered in pesticides. Here is the list of of the Dirty Dozen and the Clean 15. I have to say, I was more than a little shocked and dumbfounded to read how many pesticides are found on our fruits and veggies.

Some things like seafood, cosmetics and cleaning products can be labeled "organic" without the same requirements the U.S. Department of Agriculture imposes on vegetables and meat, making them a less than budget wise purchase.  Here is a great list of products you should and shouldn't buy organic (thanks to SmartMoney!)

Worth it:
Apples, cherries, grapes, pears, berries, peaches, nectarines, plums
Celery, potatoes, spinach, bell peppers, lettuce, tomatoes, green beans
Beef, pork, poultry, eggs, dairy products
Baby food

Not Worth it:
Bananas, kiwis, mangoes, papayas, pineapples, oranges
Asparagus, avocados, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, sweet corn, onions, sweet peas
Seafood
Processed foods (chips, pasta, etc.), cleaning products, cosmetics

Shop Local and Buy Seasonal:
Local Farmers and Community-Supported Agriculture programs are a superior source of organic foods.  Many of the CSA's are so much more than just a place to buy organic, they are a community where you can find family friendly events and fun.  Here in Atlanta we have some fantastic farmers markets and international markets, as well as a few community supported programs like Burge Organic Farms and Serenbe Farms. 

You will find better prices when produce is in season.  How to know what is in season when, check out Eat The Seasons (thanks to My Green Side 's post "Family Nutrition:  Eating on a Budget"

Shop in Bulk:
Amazon.com has a large selection of organic products.  If you join Amazon Mom or Amazon Prime you get inexpensive or free shipping.  My SIL, Kristin orders her gluten-free flour from Amazon and loves the cost and convenience. shopOrganic, recommended by Kelli B. Grant in her article "5 Ways to Buy Organic Groceries for Less", is another good resource for bulk shopping.

Look at these excellent activity books...

Looking for some great activity books to keep your family busy?

I love Klutz Books they explain things in easeir terms and are very kid and family frinedly.  Check out these great Klutz books we were able to review...


Me You
So the kiddos didn't actually use this one, my husband and myself and Ann and myself used this.  You get  book and a pencil and a friend gets a book and a pencil then you turn to a age and challenge each other!  Whoever is done with their page first wins!  This is so much fun-perfect for a car or plane trip or a rainy day!




The Klutz Guide to the Galaxy

The perfect family activity book-take some time one night and explore space, this guide comes with a build it yourself telescope, little flashlight and a sundial.  This book is full of facts and great illustrations and pictures.  YOu will learn about the Phases of the Moon, Flling Stars, Constellations at different times of the year and a lot more!


Thumb Wars
I am so excited to use this book when school starts.  You  get a great "sleeve of doom" for your hand and your opponents hand to go in.  The attached book has suggestions for you r Thumb Wrestler persona and wardrobe, thumb/hand excersises, stragities, battle cries, different waays to have a thumb war and more!  It is funny and useful!  A great gift and sure to be used over and over again!


Chalk the Block


I am looking forward to using this book at work too.  I love taking pictures of things the kids create and many times will take projects outside when the weather is nice.  The book comes with chalk and has different ideas for playground chalk drawing.  It also shows you how to use the cracks in the ground or other natural playground features!



Friendship Pixies


Ann's daughter loves this book.  You are able to create little friendship pixies and little storage containers from them, you share your friendship pixies with your friends and loved ones.  The book explains how to create them and shows cute ways to display and use them!

Klutz books are great anytime but always make great gifts!
