Girl Scouts is so much more than cookies. This nonprofit is all about promoting girls and their self confidence, their education, and well being. There are programs focusing on science/math (where girls seem to receive lower scores), leadership skills, self image, etc. I give it TWO THUMBS UP!
We attached a durable plastic tote to the hook on our stroller and used it as a "buggy basket" while shopping. It really helped by not requiring the shopping cart to grab just a few things here and there. GREAT item!
We have TONS of these because they are AWESOME. Safely snuggles baby at night with no lose blankets. Little Miss hated having her arms captured, so we just snuggled the blanket under her armpits and used long sleeve onsies. Of all the smaller items received at showers, this is one of those "most used" items.
While Wet Wipes are great - Boogie Wipes ROCK. I never wanted to have a child with crusty snot stuck to her face but using wet wipes worried me that they may be too harsh. This is the best thing we've found, gentle but tough! Love 'em and a neccessity for nasty noses.
For the entire time my niece used bottles, these we her choice. Nothing else would do. She had horrible reflux and Dr. Browns also seemed to help a bit with that. They lasted great, the parts held up well and the racks to clean all the parts in the dishwasher are also helpful. It's the only bottle my family would recommend.
I will be honest - I'm a Hobby Lobby girl. But I do frequent Michaels. I've found HL has better prices and a larger selection, however, Michaels has a large selection of crafting supplies, too. I enjoy their dollar bins. :)
Once I discovered Dropbox I wondered how I lived without it. So easy to move pics from my phone to the online storage, then access them from a computer when I want to. I can also share files with family members so I don't have the hassle if emailing. Just drop it in and you are done!
I use ziploc bags (and containers) for more than just food. I use them to keep track of small items, to divide and organize scrapbook stickers & ribbons, to keep track of change - all kinds of reasons! Love them!
