online price tracking website

All my friends and I are flipping out over this new online price tracking website by our new Sponsor, Scoutfit. The concept is brilliant. So get ready to be introduced to your new favorite past-time – scouting!

What is scouting?

If you see something you want to buy online, but don’t want to or can’t pay the current price, you simply  “scout” it. Then, if the item drops in price you get an email notification based on parameters you set.

For the notifications, you can decide if you want an email anytime there is a price drop, or you can select a target price to be notified if it drops below a certain amount you are willing to pay.

See? Told you it was brilliant! You will want to sign up and start scouting today. Let me tell you how!

How to sign up:

First, click here and enter your email address to get an invitation to join the site. It’s free.

After you get your confirmation email, follow the easy install steps and drag the Scoutfit button to your tool bar. That’s it.

Then you simply go about your merry business online shopping and get ready to “scout” anything that catches your eye. 

Build an online closet of your scouted pieces

When you scout items, you add them to your online closet by category of your choice. I have started building my Fall must-haves (for the right price of course.) Your closet looks like this…FUN!

Email price drop notifications

When the lucky day comes that an item you love drops in price, you will get an email in your Inbox like this. Then you can do a little happy dance, like I did as I was on the way to buy a cute open-front cardi from Gap at 30% less that I originally found it at …

Scout anything online – not just clothing!

Important to note – you can scout ANY item you find online – not just clothes.  That means baby gear, toys, home goods, you name it, if you can find it online, you can scout it and let Scoutfit do the online price tracking for you!

Think how great it would be to start scouting now for Christmas gifts

scout-toys

Find coupons instantly  

When you scout an item, if there is a coupon tab in the bottom right corner, you can click to see any coupons or promo codes the company might be currently offering.

This saves so much time from Googling to see if you can find a coupon online.

I hope you are all as excited about Scoutfit today as I am! Happy shopping and saving with this fabulous online price tracking website!

“Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people move our souls to dance. They awaken us to a new understanding with the passing whisper of their wisdom. Some people make the sky more beautiful to gaze upon. They stay in our lives for awhile, leave footprints on our hearts, and we are never, ever the same.” ~ Flavia Weedn

I have always loved that quote, and even more so now that I am a mother. My children have awakened a new understanding in me, and have left their precious footprints and fingerprints all over my heart.  And without a doubt, they have forever changed me.

The Beansters: Easy Sewing Kits for Kids [Giveaway!]

see more by

The Beansters creative sewing kits for kids was created by a mom who wanted a kit geared towards beginning sewers for her girls. But not just any kit, a kit with some personality, and thus the Beansters were born! Mamas, you are going to love this product, and I have both a giveaway and a coupon code to offer, so make sure to read both below.

By using felt (a more kid-friendly material), they are easy to sew with a large eyed, yet still sharp, needle and help develop the fine motor skills that go along with learning to sew.

With a focus on one technique, simple organic shapes, and small projects that are quickly completed, these are the perfect kits for younger kids and their shorter attention spans.

Once their Beanster is complete, they will love the feeling of finishing a project and taking pride in their creation, which is so great for helping develop self-esteem.

As one mom happily wrote Jessica, the creator,

“Emily is still sleeping with her Just Like Me Beanster….two weeks later.  I’m going to order a few more Beansters – for her Easter basket and for when she goes to bday parties.  She LOVED it.  It is a great example something so basic being just perfect. “

Then they can also have fun sewing accessories for their Beanster or creating little bitty beans (babies!)

The kits come with everything you need for the project except for scissors.  Although geared towards kids ages 8+, they can be used with younger kids with adult supervision because of the use of a needle.

I think these would be SUCH a great activity to have on hand for the summer months when the kids could use some quiet “down time” instead of watching TV.

They are also unisex, meaning that even little boys can have fun creating them, and I am told that even some dads have confessed to loving the Beansters as well!

The price point (most are only $14 each) is a perfect fit for a great, unique birthday gift, or you can do a “Choose Any 3” kit for $34. Plus, all online purchases include FREE SHIPPING.

The Beansters are also sold at The Wee Loft in Dana Point and Toy Boat Toy Boat Toy Boat in Newport Coast.  Lookout for more retail stores being added as well!

You can enter coupon code “tinyoranges512” which is good for 20% off your entire order through 6/22/12.

Hooray! The Beansters are giving away one of their Choose Any 3 Kits to a lucky reader! Here’s how to enter (it’s soooo easy…)

How to Green Your Child’s Lunch

see more by

This is my third post in my series of four in honor of Earth Month sponsored by SCOTT Naturals™ on different ways we can take small steps to be more green. Today’s post is on How to Green Your Child’s Lunch.

The good news is that packing an eco-friendly green lunch is not only easy, but also FUN! Here are four ways you can make your child’s lunch WASTE-FREE! If you have any other suggestions, please comment below!

Your lunchbox system, consisting of a reusable lunchbox and reusable containers is the most important component part of an eco-friendly lunch.

Now days there are lots of great products out there to make packing a green lunch inspiring.  Here are a couple of companies I recently found:

Laptop Lunches came recommended by a Tiny Oranges reader and I was sent one of their cool bento kits for review.

I love this outer carry case. The design includes a removable shoulder strap, which means it can be carried over the shoulder, messenger bag style, or you can remove the strap and carry it like a traditional lunchbox. It is even thin enough to put it in your child’s backpack.

The innovative system inside is made up of 4 different sized bento-style boxes, including a miniature bento with lid for dipping type ingredients like a salad dressing or hummus.

Based off of the ChooseMyPlate.gov guidelines for balanced eating, these containers are a great reminder of not only the portion size, but also the variety of healthy foods we should be packing for our kids.

And may I note, these are not just for KIDS! These would make the perfect lunchbox for an adult to take to work.

Laptop Lunches are made in the U.S.A with NO phthalates, BPA, lead or PVC. They are also top shelf dishwasher  safe.

Laptop Lunches also have 365 days of lunch menu ideas on their website. Amazing resource when you are tired of making the same ‘ole, same ‘ole!

Another great option are the complete lunchbox kits from Green To Go Lunchware.

These sets come with an insulated lunch bag, a five compartment leak-proof food container and an 8-oz stainless bottle.

The bag also has an erasable white board for fun notes or reminders and a mesh velcro pouch to store utensils and napkin.

The lunchbox sets are BPA free, PVC-free and lead-free.

If you are looking for something smaller, with less compartments, their small lunchbox kit has three containers in one to keep small lunches from spilling.

 
It also comes with 100+ awesome dishwasher-safe stickers so your child can have fun personalizing (photo right). My daughter loved this!

They are made in the USA, top dishwasher safe, and free of BPA and phthalates.

Enter Green to Go Lunchware coupon promo code ORANGES15 to get 15% off your order now through 06/30/12. Yay!


The second most important aspect of an eco-friendly lunch is a reusable drink bottle.

Just think how much waste it would save if every mom reading this switched from juice boxes or bottled water to a reusable drink container.

There are a gazillion of these on the market. Personally, we have used the Thermos Foogo Straw Bottle for years.

If your child’s lunch is one that requires a fork or spoon, or both, it is much more eco-friendly to pack your own reusable flatware instead of plasticware.

Laptop Lunches sells this flatware set so you can use the same utensils day after day and keep the plastic out of the trash.

Did you know that SCOTT Naturals™ napkins are made with 80% recycled paper??

That is pretty a-mazing!

What does that mean exactly?  It means that by choosing to use a SCOTT Naturals™ napkin vs. a non-recycled napkin you will be saving trees.

That alone is probably one of the easiest things any of us can do to help green our child’s lunch!

 

Speaking of saving trees, SCOTT Naturals™ invites you to take the 4 Week Test Drive during the month of April.

Simply go to scottbrand.com and pledge to switch to SCOTT Naturals™ for four weeks and try their selection of hybrid products.

When you make the pledge, you will enter in your zip code, and the state with the most pledges can win $50,000 towards local forest and land conservation efforts to preserve America’s great outdoors. Click HERE and take the pledge!

[Disclosure: SCOTT Naturals™ is compensating me for my time and participation in this campaign. All of the above are my honest opinions, as always. I have made the switch to SCOTT Naturals™ and have taken the 4 Week Test Drive pledge! I hope you will too! I also received a free bento kit from Laptop Lunches and small lunchbox kit from Green to Go to help facilitate this review. As a result I also signed up to be a part of the Laptop Lunches affiliate program as I love their products. And there, my friends, is everything you need to know!]
