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!

Kill-A-Watt

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! 🙂
