Earth Friendly Floor Cleaning - Awesome Steam Mop!

Euro-Pro Shark S3501 Deluxe Steam Pocket MopIn honor of Earth Day 2010, I thought I'd feature - and highly recommend - the Shark Steam Pocket Mop. It's earth-friendly, as it doesn't use any chemicals at all. All you need is water to get your floors clean and sanitized!

I've been in search of a way to clean my tile floors for a while and I've thrown away a lot of money on different mops, from the regular stringy type, to the sponge type and even the Swiffer Wet-Jet - hated them all! I'd seen the infomercials and presentations on QVC of the Shark steam mops and I always thought it looked like a great idea, but I was skeptical. Recently, tired of not having something I'm happy with, I set out to ask around and the majority of answers I got were in favor of the Shark Steam Pocket mop, so I purchased it.

What do I think of it? I love it! Not only do I not need to spend my money on floor cleaners anymore, but I feel good about not exposing my family any more than necessary to chemicals. I have a pretty large downstairs area and one tank full of water was all I needed. The mop head is double sided, just flip it over when one side gets dirty. The mop also maneuvers so easily, it's really a joy to use. When I use this mop to clean my floors, I truly feel a great sense of accomplishment and I know my floor is clean enough for my kids to eat off of it, 5-second rule and all!  So if you're looking for better way to clean your hard surfaces, save money and be friendly to mother earth - look no further!  Click on the picture above to learn more or order one for yourself!

Dry Your Baby Accessories in the Grass!

Boon Grass Countertop Drying Rack, Green/WhiteAren't you tired of ugly drying racks on your kitchen countertop?  No more of that if you get one of these!  Especially if you're a new mom and are always hand-washing all of those "liittle things" for babies, like pacifiers, bottles and bottle parts, etc.  This square-shaped drying rack looks like grass - very cool and mod!  You don't have to have a contemporary or modern decor for this to look good in your kitchen.  You don't even have to have a baby or baby "things"! 

I think it's a breath of fresh air in the drying rack department - helps that my favorite color happens to be green, too!  Click on the image to check it out.

Custom Fingerprint Jewelry - Great Mother's Day Gift Idea!

I just learned about this jewelry and website and I think it's a great concept - it's called Imprecious!  They make necklaces (charms), (charm) bracelets and earrings with your or your kids' fingerprints.  When you shop online and make a purchase, they send you a lovely tin with plenty of the putty to make the fingerprint impressions in - it takes two impressions to make one charm because each charm is two-sided, made to look like it was formed by pinching together with two fingers. 

What I love about this jewelry is that it is custom and personal, but not obviously so.  When worn, it just looks like beautiful, silver jewelry that has a real organic look to it.

Right now the site is offering a Mother's Day Special of 20% off til May 9th, 2010!  To redeem when ordering, enter Mama2010 in PayPal's "special instructions" box and your discount will then be refunded to you via PayPal.

Get Paid to Shop Online!

Have you heard of  If not, then you should check it out if you like to shop online and make money from doing just that!  It is completely free to join Big Crumbs and start making money right away.

What's the catch?  There is none, well except that you have to visit their site to click through to the retailer you want to shop from, which even includes Ebay!  Through their site, you can even create bigcrumbs bookmarks of your favorite retailers to make shopping and getting credit for it even easier and faster.

When you cick the picture to the left, you'll be taken to the "How It Works" page to find out more.  Basically, retailers pay Big Crumbs a commission and they then turn around and pass it on to you.  They pay you either through PayPal or onto a Big Crumbs prepaid Mastercard. 

I'm making a point to do as much of my online shopping this way as I can - it's like geting the items I buy at a discount!
