You have brightened my world for 6 months!

Dear LA, I can't even believe I am sitting here writing about you being 6 months old already! Time has gone by incredibly fast and I wish it would slow down. You entered this world on my birthday and even though the joke is that I will never have another birthday because it will be all about you from 2010 and on....I can't imagine a better birthday from 2010 on. I was blessed with a gorgeous baby boy that I get to share a birthday with. My … [Read more...]

Are you ready to save??

I have been really slacking on my blogging. I guess this is something to get used to, another responsibility, isn’t it? J I have been wanting to write about the cost savings by using the Filtrete system for over a week and I am just now getting to sit down and write it! I am a total numbers person: I am big on coupons and saving ANY way I can; sales; freebies (yes, I enter all kinds of giveaways and believe it or not I actually win … [Read more...]

No bottled water – update!

So last night I asked DH how he liked using the Filtrete bottles and his answer? "It saves us money." Yup, that's it! LOL He's into saving money. I'm into saving the planet. :)  He did say (not last night, but a week or so ago) that the water tastes better than the water straight from the tap. I'd have to agree. I'm still loving our new system and loving not buying bottled water! I'll post a pic soon of our "new" bottled water shelf in our … [Read more...]

Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!!  It of course seems like it flew by! I can't believe it's 2011 already. We had a great Christmas although it was extremely busy. Baby A just loved the wrapping paper. How sweet and innocent and simple is that? It won't be long before he's wanting the latest IPod like big brother did this year!! Well I have started my January mission of no bottled water. It worked out perfectly actually. We … [Read more...]

January – I’m ready!!

So my new change for January is to implement the Filtrete water station water bottles and get rid of bottled water. I am ready - my DH and DS got my water station, an extra filter and 4 extra water bottles for me for Christmas!  Ok, yes, I have been using it already, but I need to start now in order to tell you all my experiences starting in January, right?  :-)  January - get rid of water bottles February - laundry changes....dryer balls, I'm … [Read more...]

Our big change in 2010

The biggest thing we did in 2010 to lessen our carbon footprint was to use cloth diapers. I really wasn't sure how this was going to work out, but it turns out I love cloth diapering LA (my youngest son). After learning that disposable diapers can stay in a landfill for up to 500 years, I really didn't want to use them. Unfortunately we still have to use them for daycare and we keep some on hand at home in case we need them out of convenience, … [Read more...]
