Review & Giveaway: Bum Covered Diapers cloth diapers



I'm always on the search for new cloth diapers to add to my stash! When I started cloth diapering, I thought I'd just find one brand I liked and stick with that. But I've found that there are MANY brands and types that I like & I like having options.

I recently decided to try fitted diapers. I turned to Bum Covered Diapers because they have a GREAT Build-Your-Own fitted diaper! What could be better than designing a diaper exactly how you wan it?!

These fitted diapers are made exactly the way you want them! You choose the flannel print for the outside. We put two layers of flannel and a heavy soaker pad on the inside. We can create a custom diaper especially for your little one. You choose outside print, the soaker material, and the inside fabric! These diapers will require a waterproof cover. Plastic pants will do, or PUL covers like Thirsties, or Bummis Wraps will work fine.



They have tons of super cute prints!



I am super happy with this diaper! I got a size large & it fits all THREE of my kids (ranging from 18-28 pounds.) I originally didn't think I'd like fitteds, because I love the versatility of OS diapers since I have THREE in diapers, so I was pleased that this fit all of them.

This diaper is super absorbent. You're technically supposed to use a cover, but I've never had to and we've never had a leak! (I would definitely use a cover for naptime/bedtime, though!)

Review & Giveaway: Retro Planet



To check out more posts from my Frugal Fix-ups series, click here!

I finally feel like our new house is a home. I've finally finished the boys' room, & it was all thanks to Retro Planet!



I was having a hard time deciding on a theme for their room. Their bedding sets were already a star theme, but I wanted to do something a little more "boyish" but that still coordinated with the stars. I finally decided on a baseball theme after I found these GREAT metal signs at Retro Planet!



I just love them! They're exactly what I wanted and they totally "make" the room. I am really impressed with their quality; we get compliments from everyone who comes over!

Retro Planet also has wall decor, unique gifts, retro kitchen tableware, unique home decor, retro party fun, retro furniture, Harley Davidson decor, as well as my husband's favorite, Coca-Cola decor! I love all these other great baseball products Retro Planet offers:

Review & Giveaway: ConservingNow



I have quite a collection of reusable grocery bags. I do most of my shopping at discount grocery stores that don't provide bags for you & it's ridiculous to buy cheap paper or plastic bags every time you shop. (Not to mention how bad paper and plastic bags are for the environment!)

I've found tons of other uses for cloth grocery bags, as well! I always have one packed with an extra outfit for each kids and keep it in the trunk of the car. We even packed the majority of our house up in cloth grocery bags when we moved (my husband "forgot" to get boxes)!



ConservingNow is a great, environmentally concious company that provides reusable totes and bags. I received the Ultra-Sturdy Oversized Cotton Tote. I'm very impressed with this bag! It's always the first one I grab when I head to the store because the cotton is so thick and sturdy. It's great for holding those heavy milk jugs!





In addition to their sturdy cotton totes, ConservingNow also carries a line of bags called Envirosax. These bags are SUPER cute and come in lots of fun designs!

Plastic bags cause a lot of problems for our planet and we're eager to do our part in eliminating this nuisance. That's why we've created a line of reusable bags you can use in place of plastic bags. And since we can all use a little reminder to transform our intentions into reality, we've also designed a number of household products to remind us to always "bring our bags."

ConservingNow also offers a FREE static cling for your car window to every household, which is a GREAT reminder to bring in your bags every time you go to the store (I forget a LOT!) as well as great resources for teachers!

Review & Giveaway: Tropical Traditions Oxygen Bleach



I've tried several Tropical Traditions products over the past month & I think it's pretty clear that I love them! Well, I've found another product to add to the "LOVE IT!" category, the Tropical Traditions Oxygen Bleach!

As all cloth diapering mamas know, occasionally you can get a bad case of the stinkies. We battled this problem for several months until I finally found a cure: adding a tablespoon of bleach to the last rinse cycle! Since I've done this, we've had no stinkies. But now we have a new problem. Bleach spots on my adorable diapers!

Since Tropical Traditions Oxygen Bleach comes in a powder, not a liquid, we no longer have this problem! Now my diapers aren't stinky and no more bleached out spots!

Tropical Traditions Oxygen Bleach has many other household uses, too!
  • To destain and deodorize carpets add one ounce of Oxygen Bleach per gallon of carpet shampoo prior to cleaning.
  • To remove mold and mildew from carpeting add 2-4 ounces of Oxygen Bleach per gallon of hot water, apply generously to stain, wait 10 minutes, then vacuum with extractor.
  • For acoustic tiles add 6 ounces of Oxygen Bleach per gallon of hot water, spray on tiles, wait 15 minutes then rinse.
  • For mops add 3 ounces of Oxygen Bleach to a gallon of hot water, soak overnight then rinse.
  • For mildew removal or to clean baseboards or basement floors after water damage from flooding add 4 ounces of Oxygen Bleach to a gallon of hot water, scrub surface, wait 30 minutes then rinse. Oxygen Bleach is safe for use in a closed environment.
  • To clean and deodorize cat litter boxes soak them in 3 ounces of Oxygen Bleach per gallon of water for 20 minutes then rinse.
  • For urine, feces, or vomit stains on carpets or upholstery, add one teaspoon of Oxygen Bleach to 8 ounces of water, wipe onto stain, wait 10 minutes then rinse.



People have been using chlorine bleach in their laundries since the end of the 18th century. While these products work very well in whitening clothes, chlorine bleaches do have a negative effect upon the environment because of their chemistry. Care must be taken in using chlorine bleach as it is toxic to humans, animals, and plants.* Also, we all have experienced destroying a colored article of clothing because chlorine bleach was accidentally spilled on it.

Tropical Traditions Oxygen Bleach is a safe and effective alternative to chlorine based products and it can be used in many applications in and around the home. It is based on sodium percarbonate which uses oxygen for destaining and deodorizing. Oxygen Bleach is safe to use at all temperatures, on most washable fabrics, and all colors, in hard or soft water, and is compatible with other household cleaners. Also, it produces no harmful by-products which negatively affect the environment. Unlike chlorine bleach, which can merely cover up a stain, Tropical Traditions Oxygen Bleach attacks and breaks down organic stains to totally remove them from the garment.

One lucky Giveaways for Mom reader will win a bottle of powdered oxygen bleach from Tropical Traditions!

Nearly everything comes in disposable versions these days offering convenience in many aspects of our lives, but at what cost?

Review & Giveaway: Purex Crystals



I was so happy when I became a Purex insider! Since I have three kids, it seems like I'm constantly doing laundry. And I love trying out new products that make my laundry life easier.



Purex has a new fabric softener called Purex Crystals. I LOVE this fabric softener! It smells fantastic and leaves my clothes super soft!

I love using fabric softener, but I don't like using the sheets and I always forget to add the liquid to the rinse cycle. Purex Crystals are great because you add it right in with your detergent, it's super convenient!

I also like it because it is made from 92% natural ingredients, so I feel safe using it on my kid's clothes!




WHAT IT IS > UNIQUE CRYSTAL FORM, 92% NATURAL FABRIC SOFTENER
Introducing Purex® Complete Crystals SoftenerTM*; a purer way to get laundry that
smells clean and fresh for weeks. 92% natural, this product’s unique crystal form works
differently than traditional oil-based softeners that coat fabrics with oily residue, because
it infuses fibers with long-lasting fragrance. In addition, since you add it directly with your
laundry, this means no more waiting for the rinse cycle, no messy residual gunk in your
washing machine, and no more stains from spilling liquid fabric softener.

HOW IT’S USED > ADDED WITH LAUNDRY AT THE START OF THE WASH CYCLE
Why struggle with plastic fabric softener balls, risk staining your clothes or waste time
waiting for the rinse cycle? Simply add Purex Complete Crystals Softener directly with
your laundry at the beginning of every wash cycle to infuse fabrics with long lasting
freshness.

HOW IT WORKS > CRYSTALS DISSOLVE INFUSING FABRICS WITH FRESHNESS
Laundry scent lovers will perk up as freshness is infused into clothes with this new fabric
softener. Over time, traditional oil-based softeners coat fibers causing harmful oily
residue to accumulate. Purex Complete Crystals Softeners penetrate fabrics to reduce
fiber entanglement and smooth frayed fibers providing a naturally soft feel.

WHY IT’S DIFFERENT > SAFE FOR ALL LAUNDRY AND BETTER FOR FABRICS
Do ALL of your laundry—worry free! Purex Complete Crystals Softeners are safe for
all laundry and will not harm, wear down or discolor your fabrics like oil-based softeners.
Safe for all fabrics, including baby clothes, athletic wear, towels, and whites. Unlike other
softeners, Crystals WILL:
• Preserve the flame retardant benefits of your children’s clothes
• Retain your athletic wear’s wicking ability which draws sweat away from your body
• Maintain your towels’ built-in ability to absorb water
• Keep your white clothing from yellowing and graying vs. using traditional softeners
The product won’t harm your clothes and is safe and convenient for the entire family!

THREE lucky Giveaways for Mom readers will win a bottle of Purex Crystals!

Review & Giveaway: The Pretty Peacock



I was SO excited when I came across The Pretty Peacock! I've been looking for a birthstone necklace to symbolize my kids, but since we do foster care, I needed something that was easily customizable. I was at a total loss until I found the Portals collection at The Pretty Peacock.

The Portals collection are beautiful pendants that you can add and change. They have key chains, bracelets, and necklaces. I got the round bling birthstone pendant. It is absolutely beautiful & I love how I'll be able to change it throughout the years.

All of the designs from The Pretty Peacock would make great Mother's Day gifts! Hurry, since all items are handmade, the deadline for US orders is April 18th!



The Pretty Peacock has many other great designs that you can customize to fit your family. Here are a few of my favorites!







I love these little taglettes! They are customizable with both your birthstone and initial!



The Pretty Peacock is offering an exclusive discount for all Giveaways for Mom readers! Just use the code FORMOM11 to get a 10% discount!
