The Solution To Lost Hats and Mittens!

With eight kids, we are always losing hats and mittens. Thankfully, a mom of two young children came up with the solution to this common problem. It’s called Snowman Scarves and they are the latest trend in children’s outwear. The Snowman Scarves’ patented design is made from high-quality, water-resistant fleece and keeps kids from losing any part of the set, with the hat loops and snaps holding the scarves and the scarves’ built-in pockets holding the mittens –keeping the set together.

Snowman Scarves come in six girl and boy-friendly styles that were designed with the help of kids,  including The Isabela featuring a retro pink and lavender design, The Lucy with a pink and brown polka dot pattern, and The Barbara classic brown and pink design.  Boys can choose from The Beacom camouflage fleece, The Ryan sports theme or the popular red and black color combination design.

We love the Snowman Scarves! They are such a unique and fun idea. They are very well made and will last your kids a long time. We love how soft and warm they are. However, the hats do run small so keep them in mind when ordering these unique items.

Snowman Scarves retail for $45 per set and come packaged in a handy drawstring backpack.  Sizes are available in Small (3-to 4 years old), Medium (5-to 6 years old) and Large (7-to 8 years old).  Snowman Scarves may be purchased online at www.snowmanscarves.com.

The Ultimate Pregnancy Planner

Having a baby is a lot of work. There is so much to do to prepare for a new little one’s arrival. While I have had lots of practice getting ready for babies, I still get a little anxious or even overwhelmed (partly hormones, partly fear of the additional work!). That’s why is so nice that more products are being created and developed to help new moms. One of the ways a new mom can help keep her appointments, to-do’s, contacts, shopping lists and pregnancy symptoms in one place is to use a pregnancy organizer/planner. The Ultimate Pregnancy Planner seems to have everything from a calendar – with lots of pages for notes!, pregnancy overview divided into trimesters, a contact list, a health section that includes prenatal visit recaps, pages for questions, healthcare log, prenatal blood work profile, a place for insurance info, notes, shopping planner and lastly a section just for baby. Included with this planner are little stickers, a place for photos – like an ultrasound image, credit cards, insurance cards, coupons and even a pouch for cash, if you wanted to use it for that. What major organizations are saying about this product: “Hot Award Winner for 2009″ ~ iParenting Media Award Winner “Top 10 Pregnancy Essentials” ~ Disney Family “Love this!

The family facts pregnancy planner sells for just $16.95 and has a plastic cover that is easy to clean, as well as a snap closure.

New Baby Organizers

Having a baby doesn’t have to mean clutter in the kitchen. Two brand new organizers are hitting stores this Fall. We thought you might have interest
in these home solutions.

The Baby Buffet is a baby food jar organizer! It can store up to 16 jars of baby food. It is stackable to maximize vertical space in a standard kitchen
cabinet. Additionally, Baby Buffet can be adjusted to accommodate all three stages of standard baby food jars. Because each Baby Buffet has four separated rows and is built with a slight incline using gravity to automatically move the jars forward, food can be sorted by type and variety making feeding time searches easier and faster.

And for bottles and sippy cups, there’s the Baby Beverage. This organizer can hold up to 9 bottles or cups and loads horizontally using gravity to dispense them one at a time. This allows bottles or cups to be stored compactly in a smaller footprint than stacking vertically in the same space. Baby Beverage is compatible with over 35 bands of bottles and 40 brands of sippy cups and is adjustable so there are no worries when baby grows out of the current bottle or cup. Simply adjust it to hold the next size. Additionally since the bottles or cups are contained, Baby Beverage helps eliminate the chance that cups will be knocked over and contaminated when searching for a cup at feeding time.

The products are being unveiled this month and will be available online and in stores. www.prkproductsinc.com

The Other Side of Organized

The holiday season is here and this is the time many of you may be feeling the pressure of “How am I going to get everything done?” kind of madness. This may be the time of year where you host more parties and get togethers, so that adds to the stress as you scurry about trying to get your home in tip top shape for your guests.

Linda Samuels, a Professional Organizer, has written a little book entitled The Other Side of Organized. This book is about finding the balance between chaos and perfection.

While reading Linda’s book, I felt liberated when the idea that each of us has a different tolerance for clutter and organization. It was like a light bulb went on in my head or something. This tolerance is sure to change and be challenged with each new season of life too.

Another interesting point made in The Other Side of Organized is that each of us has a certain degree of tolerance before we become overwhelmed. Imagine if we could only know this? Our lives would be changed wouldn’t they?

Mrs. Samuels walks readers through the these chapter subjects: to embrace change, letting go, too much clutter, getting motivation, enlisting help, positive thinking and life’s balance to help us all to learn our comfort own level of organizational bliss.

There are really no right or wrong to organization. The key is to know yourself well enough so you can work at maintaining your personal level of organization.

Both the organizationally challenged as well as the organized will receive tidbits of encouragement in this short 148 page book ($14.95 Paperback).

A quote:

Organizing extends beyond having a place for everything. It’s also about finding the balance, discovering places and people that renews your energy”
