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?
I recently got a new
niece and I'm quickly learning that buying baby gear is about the most
fun way to spend my money. Especially since I've found a few companies
that market eco-friendly baby clothes and supplies. In the past few
months, I've become a bit of an expert at buying little gifts for a
baby. Here are some of my favorite places that specialize in cheap
eco-friendly baby gear. Everything is under $50 and can be purchased

I am the worst when it comes to buying my children's Halloween costumes on time. I usually wait until the day before, leaving me with almost no choices, damaged goods or a costume that's so risque that it makes me cringe to know that some people might be buying it for their child.
This year, I've decided to make some changes that will not only put me in control but also save me some money. Like anything in life, planning ahead makes all the difference in finding what you want for less or even nothing.
It may be August, but summer is winding down. I know for sure because "Back to School" sales are popping up everywhere. Yay, we get to indulge in one of our favorite past times, shopping--but with our children along it's not always so fun.
Here are some tips to make you shopping experience go smoothly with little kids all the way through teens.
"Sunny day. Sweepin the clouds away. On my way to where the air is sweet. Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street."
Growing up, Sesame Street was my 'hood. Every morning, I would sit in front of the TV with my bowl of cereal and wait for Big Bird, Elmo and Cookie Monster to entertain me. While I was being entertained little did I know I was also learning all sorts of lessons on life.
Every positive message and life lesson was conveyed in a fun way for a five year-old me to comprehend. With those lessons, I took away the message to always have respect for others, which was one of the biggest things that I learned and continually use in my life (it's so important to know that what you learn at a young age, you carry on throughout your life).
Now that I am a mom, it's exciting to watch Sesame Street with my kids, when I occasionally catch it on PBS (I get to share a piece of my childhood with them--there was no Nickelodeon back then). The closest my kids get to Sesame Street is the annoying Tickle Me Elmo doll, my best friend bought a couple years back (I've already attempted to throw him away a few dozen times and have been unsuccessful).
Now Sesame Street and PNC Bank have teamed up to teach children about spending, sharing and saving money in a fun way with the For Me, For You, For Later initiative.
