Seventh Generation & Fred Meyer

Posted in Going Green, Stores tagged , , , at 9:09 pm by smilinshell11


Through tomorrow, Fred Meyer is having their “Founder’s Day Sale”. I saw that all Seventh Generation products were 50% off which is a pretty good deal. On their website, you can sign up to print out coupons which basically makes everything is an additional $1 off. On the dishwasher detergent, there was a $5 mail-in rebate when you bought three Seventh Generation Products. I ended up getting 4 (as you see in the picture).  I got two packs of baby wipes (part of a gift basket for a friend who is having a baby), a box of dishwasher detergent, and some feminine hygiene products (the last two I thought I would try because I have been meaning to). With the items being right about $2.35 each, $1 off each item (making it $1.35) and having the $5 off, I actually made money! If I would have only bought 3 items, I would have made about $1.50 (before tax and a stamp) but with 4 items, I made about .50 cents which is basically 4 free items!

The Seattle Public Library is now checking out these Kill-A-Watt Electricity Usage Monitors to monitor power consumption for anything you might plug into an outlet.  Here is some more information from the Seattle Public Library HERE! You will probably be amazed how much electricity small appliances plugged in can use, even when not in use.

Thanks to Heather for the link! 🙂

House Party

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , at 1:38 pm by smilinshell11

I’m not sure where I found out about this awesome website (I know on some blog I read some place), but I think you should check it out. 🙂 It’s called House Party. I know the first question you are probably asking is, “What in the world is a House Party?”

According to their website, a “House Party™ lets people who really love something host a special event featuring a fun, free, exclusive experience sponsored by the world’s leading brands”.

Now I’m all about parties, friends, and all of it being free!?!? Where do I sign up!?!? 🙂

Of course, one of the first parties I applied for, I ended up being selected to host. I’m not quite sure how I was selected for the “Green Works Kids Gear Swap House Party” seeing I don’t have kids, but the kit was awesome! Here is a picture of all the awesome stuff that was in the package:

According to the directions, all the clothes were supposed to be washed in the Green Works Natural Detergent and wiped down the other gear with Green Works Natural Compostable Cleaning Wipes. Then guests were supposed to bring their gently worn kids clothing, toys, or other great to swap.

Needless to say, the weekend I was planning on hosting, ended up not being an ideal weekend and things have been NUTS for the part month and it’s showing no signs of slowing down. So in honor of Earth Day, I posted that the first 10 people who contacted me on facebook, I would mail them an awesome package with free samples and coupons (which went out on Saturday).

Here is everything included:
(15) Clorox Green Works Natural Laundry Detergent Samples
(15) Clorox Green Works Natural Compostable Cleaning Wipes samples
(15) Kashi TLC cereal bar samples
(15) Handi Wipes product samples
(15) Clorox Green Works Natural Dishwashing Liquid coupons
(15) Kashi TLC product coupons
(15) Brita coupons
(15) Bare Naked cereal or granola coupons
(15) Horizon Milk coupons
(15) Silk Soymik coupons
(15) Lowe’s/WebMD Healthy Home Guide
(1) Hidden Valley The Original Ranch Dip Mix
(1) Nalgene bottle
(1) Sierra Club note card pack & window sticker

The awesome part is, they give you a bunch of suggestions on how to make it a “cool” party instead of everyone coming and leaving 5 minutes later with samples and coupons.

I’m super excited for future parties and hope to actually be able to host one again!

Have you ever hosted a House Party? What was your experience?

Over the past month I’ve been trying to come up with a new theme or something for this blog and honestly, I don’t have it. 🙂  I’ve decided I’ll just start posting things that have been going on with me and maybe something will eventually come out of it. 

I promise I won’t disappear for a month again. 🙂

Rambling :)

I haven’t posted here since I separated this blog from my one all about the Guide Dog for the Blind puppies.  I feel like I must have a “theme” or something.  I have had a cold/sinus/allergy/chest cold thing going on about 2 weeks now which hasn’t helped.  Maybe I’ll just start posting random things I make (or attempt to make) or how much I love coupons and seeing how much I can save each time I got to the store.  Hmmm…That is all I have for now. 🙂
