Did you ever look at a jar and think, "That's worn out"? Glass objects, like many other things, simply don't "wear out." And even if they show a little wear, it's perfectly acceptable to use them anyway. This means that you can buy them already used. Why spend two dollars on the same jar that you can get for fifty cents or less, used?
Finding out that you're pregnant is one of the greatest news you can get. But with the wonderful news, reality sets in. You may start to ask yourself if you can afford having children or what your diet should be like since you're now eating for 2 or more.
From prenatal vitamins to foods that aren't good for your growing fetus and your checklist for baby essentials, there are a lot of things going on at once.
One thing you'll quickly realize is that having a baby does not come cheap. However, you can make smart choices that
will make it affordable.
Are you raising a left-handed child? No worries. With approximately 10% of the population being left-handed (including President Obama and many former presidents), more and more products are being made to accommodate the needs of left-handed individuals.
Back when I was growing up, there was maybe one kid in my class every year that was left-handed. I distinctly remember that they were encouraged to write with their right hands. To my knowledge, there weren't any left-handed products to meet their needs, so they really had no other options but to use their right hands.
With a lot of research being done on left-handedness, more companies are seeing that there is a demand for left-handed products. If you go to Amazon and search "left-handed," everything from knives to guitars show up on the list.
If your looking to buy a gift for a left-handed child this holiday season, I have five gift ideas for you:
Once your child gets back to school, you'll start to notice that he or she may get sicker more often. Being in close quarters with other children contribute to that. By the time, one child's symptoms start to get noticeable, it's too late.
Colds are contagious the first three days after initial exposure. That's why sometimes the entire family is sick together. The cold usually starts out with a sore throat, followed by a runny and or stuffy nose, and sometimes a mild cough will be present.
When your child starts to get cold symptoms, make sure it's not the flu because a lot of people get the two confused, including myself (is it a cold or flu?). The cold should go away within a week, but if not, you'll need to make sure it's not a bacterial infection. If it's bacterial, your doctor will prescribe antibiotics (honestly speaking, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't for my family).
I remember when I was a new mom, I took my daughter in for a cold and we sat in the doctor's waiting room for 45 minutes and another hour in the actual room they assigned us. By the time the doctor came around to see us, all he said was to give her Motrin or Tylenol if she felt uncomfortable (this was the same case for the flu as well). If your child is under 4, it's no longer recommended to give your child over-the-counter cold and cough medicines.
After wasting time, lots of energy and money ($20 co-pay), I decided to use homeopathic and natural products to relieve cold symptoms for my child. Not only did it save me time, energy and money, it was very effective. Plus, I like do things naturally when I have the option to do so.
Babies can be very expensive, and one of the biggest expenses can
be baby formula. Of course, if you or your partner is able to
breastfeed, that will save you a lot of money. However, if it
doesn't work out, there are ways to save money on baby
I have four children under five--my house is a virtual
daycare! While we by no means have it all together, these
products have really helped bring some sanity to our lives.
If you have a houseful, I'd love to hear about products that you
have used with your kids to help keep some semblance of order.
