I have a confession to make: I was not always a Green Mom. Just like I wasn’t “born” being a mom, I wasn’t born being green either. Growing up, I ate vegetables out of a can, drank water out of the hose on hot days, and consumed waaaaay too much sugary cereal. As a teen, I sprayed too much hairspray from an aerosol can, threw things away without thinking, and drove every chance I got, even if I was only going down the block.
When I did become a mom, my attitude… Continue

Stuff. Possessions. Things
. We all have way too much of it. Especially if you have children or if you are one to hold onto things for sentimental reasons. (You know who you are!)

Here are some ideas to reduce and reuse:
Birthday party favors

Environmentally friendly gifts are all the rage these days, but with the economy still dipping, you can still show Mom how thankful you are. Here are a few ideas that will let Mom know you not only adore her, but Mother Earth as well.
First and foremost, keep in mind what Mom’s hobbies are. Does she like to curl up with a good book? Purchasing books from a second-hand book store is not only a financially great idea, but applies the reusing thought process. Like Netflix’s movie rental… Continue

I want to share some tips with you on how I save money—and who doesn’t want to these days—while being kind to our environment.
