What is and isn’t working for me in the Flats Challenge? #Flatschallenge

I'm participating in the Flats and Handwashing Challenge hosted by Dirty Diaper Laundry. Five days into the Flats Challenge and I must admit that the flats are working better than expected.  I'm not even using "real flats", I bought flour sack towels to use, and have also been using receiving blankets.  As I mentioned in the handwashing post, I don't really use covers so I'm thrilled that the blankets and towels are working so well.  I have finally mastered the use of the Snappi, so Read more [...]

Thoughts on Handwashing for the Flats Challenge – How am I doing? #Flatschallenge

I'm participating in the Flats and Handwashing Challenge hosted by Dirty Diaper Laundry. Ok, it's official.  The big thing I have learned from the Flats Challenge is that I hate hand washing.  I really enjoyed it in the beginning.  To make my life a little easier, I have been using a wet pail when I couldn't wash them right away.  Not that it works for everyone, but it worked for me.  I have honestly just been trying to wash as we go.  But in case you were wondering, here's how it Read more [...]

How Did I Prepare for the Flats Challenge (Hint I only spent $11)? #Flatschallenge

I'm participating in the Flats and Handwashing Challenge hosted by Dirty Diaper Laundry. When I decided to take the flats challenge, I knew I had no flats.  Never wanted any so I was going to have to come up with a cheap option.  Didn't really want to invest a ton into something I probably wouldn't be using.  I started researching on the internet and saw that people were using receiving blankets.  Gee... I have a bunch of those.  Yay for me! Cost: $0 But that wasn't enough.  I Read more [...]

Why did I decide to take the Flats and Handwashing Challenge? #FlatsChallenge

I'm participating in the Flats and Handwashing Challenge hosted by Dirty Diaper Laundry. This event is going to be an interesting learning experience. There are a few reasons I decided to do this challenge. First and foremost, living in Florida means one thing... hurricane season. This brings the challenge of power outages and evacuations. Having flats is so much easier than using all in ones and any of the thicker diapers. Also, when you pack to evacuate, flats take up much less space Read more [...]

Fun Fridge Magnets Review

I love cute magnets.  Especially ones that have to do with moods.  I was sent Pregnant and New Mom Moods to review and to give away to one of my lucky readers.  As soon as my Fun Fridge Magnets got here, it went on the fridge.  My hubby and I have had a good time marking what our moods for the day were.  Plus, it gives people a warning as to the climate of the house each day.  If you see that I'm overwhelmed or frustrated , now would be the time of offer a hand around the house.  HINT HINT Read more [...]
