Funky Monkey Snacks, Fruit that Crunches! Review & Giveaway



My preschooler has always been picky about eating fruit. He will happily gobble up every vegetable I place before him, but for the past few months, the only fruit he'll eat is peaches. However, he LOVES all snacks! He'd happily snack the day away. I constantly hear "Nack peas, mom!" That's why when I heard about Funky Monkey Snacks, I thought they just might cure his "fruit-free lifestyle".


Funky Monkey Snacks are a line of freeze-dried fruit that are 100% natural and 100% real fruit. There are actually 3 servings of fruit in every 1 ounce package! Pretty amazing! Funky Monkey Snacks have no added colors, preservatives, flavors, & sugars which keeps this mama happy, while using real slices of fresh fruit. Funky Monkey Snacks are even gluten free & kosher certified!


Funky Monkey Snacks come in 7 great flavors! Applemon, Bananamon, Carnaval Mix, JiveALime, MangOJ, Pink Pineapple, & Purple Funk. My two-year-old absolutely loved these snacks. He didn't see it as eating "yucky, slimy" fruit, but as a yummy, crunchy treat. He quickly devoured all the samples we received! His favorite was Purple Funk.



BUY IT

Funky Monkey Snacks can be ordered online here. A pack of 12 starts at $12.80. A list of retailers can be found here.

Charlie's Soap Review & Giveaway!



With two little ones at home, both in (cloth) diapers, plus a hardworking husband, I do a LOT of laundry. I try to keep cleaning products as natural as possible in our home, so I'm not a fan of the chemical-filled, perfumed detergents. It's always a plus when I find new soap that is safe to use on our cloth diaper stash, too!

Charlie's Soap is hypoallergenic, so it leaves no residue, which is great for babies and those with sensitive skin. It is made with a blend of biodegradable, coconut-based detergents and high-grade Green River washing soda. Charlie's Soap is also compatible for both HE & front loader washers and is available as a liquid or powder.



Charlie's Soap also carries All-Purpose cleaner. This cleaner can safely be used on a variety of surfaces. Like the laundry soap, it is non-toxic and biodegradable.

I've tested both the Charlie's Soap laundry powder, laundry liquid, and the all-purpose cleaner. I found all three products to work great, as promised by the retailer. Our clothes, diapers, and house are clean without the harmful chemicals and additives from other soaps and cleaners. That makes me one happy mama!



BUY IT

All of the Charlie's Soap products can be found here. Prices start at just $9.48.

WIN IT

Charlie's Soap For You is giving away a bundle of the Laundry Liquid, Laundry Powder, & All-Purpose Cleaner to a lucky Giveaways for Mom reader!

Storage Solutions: Ottoman Coffee Tables



We have a teeny, tiny house. I mean, teeny tiny! It was fine & more than enough room when it was just my husband and I. Then we added a puppy, but that puppy quickly grew to a huge 75 pounds. Since then, we've also added two kiddos to the mix! Our house seems to get teenier and tinier everyday! Space is hard to come by. That's why everything in our house has to serve two purposes; and if one of those purposes is storage, I'm one happy mama!

I came across these great ottoman coffee table on AllCoffeeTables.com, one of the great stores over at CSN Stores. I'm having a hard time picking my favorite! They are all gorgeous and they all offer extra storage, which is a must for our family. Take a look at these & let me know your favorite!







Stay tuned for more great information about CSN Stores!
