Ingenious Mom - Child Bag!

I think this bag is sheer genious!  Use it to tote whatever needs toting and walk safely with your child - you see, the bag has a handle attached low on one side, so while mom holds her handle, child can hold the lower handle!  I don't know about you, but my kids always want to help carry things for me, but often my bags are too heavy or too big for them.  This bag not only allows them to help, but you can feel secure walking down the sidewalk or anywhere with your child holding on to the bag.  Of course, this is not a substitute for paying attention to your child to make sure he or she is safe wherever you go!  Oh, here's the link to check it out and purchase, from one of my favorite cool stuff sites, Spoon Sisters.

Stop Your Credit Debt Woes

If credit debt has you stressed out and you feel like there's no end to being in debt, you need to read this book.  Dave Ramsey's The Total Money Makeover changed my life!  I thought it would take over 10 years to get out of debt, and that was only if we could go those 10 years without ever using our credit cards again - yeah right!  I am usually a slow reader, but this book was read by me in 2 days and I enjoyed every minute of it. 

Dave Ramsey has a plan for getting out of debt that makes you want to get started immediately - it allows you to see the light at the end of the tunnel!  The light at the end of my tunnel is about 28 months away - at that point I will be debt free except for the mortgage.  If you're looking for an answer, for a way to get rid of credit debt, or any debt you have and build a nest egg, save for college for your kids, save for retirement and live happy, you should give this book a chance.  If you want to read more details about how his plan works, click here.

Kidishes - Tempered Glass for Kids

Are you tired of having to heat up your child's meal in a glass or ceramic dish and then transfering it to their kid-safe plastic dish or bowl?  Tired of not being able to cut on your child's plate?  Tired of worrying whether or not chemicals from the plastic are leaching into your childs food, and into them? 

Worry no more with these safe tempered glass dishes, bowls and dishes by Duralex.

Kidishes by Duralex are completely toxic-free and incredibly durable.  Your child can drop a piece on the floor and it will not break.  They are made in France - not China ( a plus for some.)  These glass pieces are microwave and dishwasher safe, so go ahead and heat up your child's food one them, then cut up the food on them, serve their food on them and then toss them in the dishwasher after it all!  Oh, and if someone happens to drop a glass, bowl or dish somewhere along the way, no worries!  Check out what Amazon has at the link above or you can also find them at Zoe B Organic.
