I agonized over writing a review of Eco Store’s Dishwashing Soap.
I don’t dislike it, I detest it. I don’t need yet another bill from AT&T to sit on my desk. I pay it all online anyhow. I’ve signed up for internet only billing with a few companies, but for some I’m so panicked about not receiving the email (think mortgage) that I really want it sent to my physical address.
I’ve eliminated some of the obvious junk with 41Pounds, but there’s got to be a way for me to still get traditional mail without the 42 dollar footprint (no that’s not a typo), well, someone had the idea to stop fighting the postal system and migrate to a virtual mailbox.
I was sent a sample of Eco Store’s Automatic Dishwashing Soap, and I almost fell over when the box arrived. Peanuts, it was packed to the brim in packing peanuts.
I don’t even know what to say. I was (and am) startled that a company who wanted to be sustainable would ship in a packaging that will outlast my Great Grandchildren. What’s worse is this.
I love the product. [Read more…]
The last 13 years have been wonderful. I’ve had necklaces in champagne glasses, a proposal on Wesminster Bridge and gourmet dinners lovingly prepared when we lived on love (because we sure as heck weren’t living on money).
This year Valentine’s Day will be on a Saturday. I think we all know what that means.
This year Valentine’s Day is about all four of us being together. We’ll bake something pink and do a pomegrantine lemonade.
But darlin’ you’ve still got to pony up with some gifts. Here’s what I’m demanding I’d really like. [Read more…]
Kudos to Kellogs for preemptively pulling their cookies from the shelves. Yeah, I said that, Kellogs, pimpmaster of all things packaged, high fructose, genetically modified, partially hydrogenated, frankenfood. Yeah, they’re doing the right thing.
Who doesn’t love a party? I’m having an Inauguration Watching party at my house next week. I planned on ten attending because everyone is so busy and whatnot, right?
Everyone is going to work late. Everyone will be here. Everyone will be hungry.
Excuse me a moment while I freak out! I’ve got service for 15, how am I supposed to have an oatmeal bar without bowls? It’s my secret weapon, and if you promise to keep it a secret, I’ll let you in on it.
Last week I told you about a great last minute gift my Mom is giving the kids.
Tonight, it’s Christmas Eve and I need a gift for tomorrow. Since I’d rather show up empty handed than with a cheap bit of plastic bought off a street corner, I did a little research and came up with a fantastic gift for everyone from 3 to 99 years old.
It’s a quick and easy download
We’re planning a trip to the Rockies in a few days, and I needed to get my husband something to keep his naughty bits warm. Long underwear are great, but when you’re from LA your jeans aren’t bought with long underwear in mind, and they just won’t fit comfortably.
I stumbled upon Christopher Anthony’s site.
As a youth, Christopher often bought thermal underwear to create his own custom, warm boxers. So when that first chilly Chicago day arrived, Christopher went to the local department store to once again buy his reliable, warm and comfortable thermal long johns. As he had always done as a child, he cut the legs off, instantly turning them into boxer briefs. This exact moment would soon change his life. He realized this childhood creation would transform the current men’s wear trends.
He has an organic line of men’s boxers that are made much like thermals called Toasty Boys. (nice adult photos after the jump)
I don’t hate Sam Walton, I don’t hate jobbers or discounts or international trade. I don’t even hate many lawyers. I hate when corporations jump through hoops to set up faux social media (social media includes listening) in order to reach out to everywoman and then they trample us.
There is only one thing for Walmart to do at this point in time.
There’s a dead man and his father had to bury him. Yes, a father buried a son so that someone could get a flat screen TV, cheap. Rather than apologize Walmart has just today taken this off their website.
Just to be sure that search engines pick this up properly, let me give you the text.
Bring a buddy!!! If you guys think you can do this alone, think again people! These shoppers are die hard and they’ll run you over like there’s no tomorrow! The more you have, the better!
This comes from Kim at Hormone Colored Days. Naturally the mom who had originally posted it come through with a thoughtful comment.
This morning I found a great new website (well, new to me), called Barter Quest. It’s in beta, which means that it might have a few kinks to work out, but it’s amazing.
