Eco Friendly Totes


     One thing I can never seem to have enough of are bags. With a family of 5 that also has 5 furry little friends whether it is shopping or just a day out in the park we always need bags. A couple years back I would have just gone to the store and gotten my shopping cart full of plastic bags with my groceries. In the last couple of year we have spent a lot of time trying to find ways to help our environment, and we thought that a great place to start is to replace out bags, both for shopping and fun. Eco Friendly Tote Bags from Beau-coup are made of all-natural cotton and printed with a "go green" eco-conscious message: "Reuse, conserve, recycle, sustain." These are a perfect size for small shopping trips, a day at the beach, or even a fun bag for you child to take along their toys or coloring materials, and each bag measures 14.5"L x 16"W.
     There are many things I love and these bags. The biggest part is the way they roll up to keep them from flopping everywhere and help my shopping trip stay a little more organized. They are also very durable, made of a heavy duty all-natural cotton they clean up very well in the washing machine, because of course there is always that one item that likes to leak! These would make a really great gift for big events, or even as part of a green wedding.
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Homemade Fly Traps

We all love summer but as the weather gets warmer the flies get worse and worse. We have a bush out front of our house that I swear just attracts every fly in town! I wanted to get rid of them but I didn't want to kill all the wonderful butterflies it also attracts. So I went about finding a new way to kill them all. I had some empty Tazo tea bottles I simply poked a pen sized whole in the top, added 1/2 cup of water, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1 tablespoon of dish soap, and 1 tablespoon of syrup.Now I do find that these work better if you place them in the sun :O) If you want to use a bigger container simply multiply the ingredients. Make sure your hole is only about the size of a pen cap! Then they can't seem to get back out.lol

Putting On Girl Scout Badges With A Flat Iron

I love helping all my little daisies earn badges, but as a mom I hate putting them on. Lol I saw an idea on Pinterest a while back to use a flat iron so I thought I'd give it a try.  It worked really well but I do have a couple suggestions. First make sure your badge  is exactly where you want them. Unlike an iron this causes the glue to melt very fast! Second count I 3-4 and it is probably done! Lastly you will likely have to apply pressure to the end pinching it tight. Overall it worked very well and I will probably keep putting badges on this way :)
