Review: Eco Zip | Use Less Plastic, Get more Bag!

Eco Zip bags are a great product that helps reduce the amount of plastic being used on a day to day basis. In fact, these bags are made with 20% less plastic than your normal ziploc bag. So what else makes these bags so different? Well, it’s the fact that you can use one bag like it’s two!

Eco Zip bags have three zips in each bag. This provides for a world of opportunity to get more organized! You can unzip the middle zipper and have one large bag or you can keep it close and have two separate compartments. This feature makes these bags great for packing lunches with dry ingredients on one side and wet on the other. Just think, no more soggy sandwiches!

These bags are also ideal for travel, for example, I like to put my makeup brushes on one side and things like my powders, foundations, blushes and other beauty items on the other. EcoZip even made it as 1 of the top 13 travel products in Prevention magazine!

Craft time on the go or at home is so much easier with Eco Zip. I can prepare my projects in advance and everything needed for project is stored together neatly in it’s own little bag. Embellishments or perhaps pre-cut card stock on the other for on the go card making or scrapbooking with friends. The possibilities of what you could use these bags are endless!

ECO Zip are the best BPA-free storage bags that I’ve come across. I highly recommend them to all my friends and family! You can find a variety of sizes on their website and prices are 3.99 for Snack/Sandwich, Storage/Quart, and Storage/Gallon sized boxes. Pretty affordable if you ask me!

Review and Giveaway: O.R.E Originals – Good Shopper Bag

ORE Originals is a company I spotlighted here before and yet again I’m spotlighting another fantastic product, this time from their Living Goods line. The last item I spotlighted  was from their Sugar Booger line geared toward babies and kids! And since that review, I’m pleased to say my daughter is still using her adorable ladybug bowl set as well as the matching apron for when she’s helping mom and dad in the kitchen.

The product I’d like to talk about today is The Living Goods® Reversible Good Shopper Bag. I choose the style My Garden because I so love gardening and the design pattern is totally something that meets my style with it colors and cute character fruits,  veggies, and tools you most commonly would use to tend to your garden.

I really like this tote. It’s an ideal size at  13 inches wide x 15 inches high x 4 inches deep. It’s very versatile and an added bonus is that it’s totally reversible. Don’t care for the print side? No problem! Just reverse it to the solid colored side.

I found the tote very durable and have used it a purse and a bag to carry a long my knitting. I’ve yet used it to carry the groceries though I’m sure it would handle the extra weight with no problems whatsoever. It’s a great tote for just about anything, library book bag, beach tote, diaper bag, you name it!

If interested, you can purchase you very own Good Shopper tote bag for just $25.00. They come in lots of different styles and remember they are reversible so it’s like buying two different bags for the price of one!

Be sure to check out all the other great products by  Oré Originals, I highly recommend them for every member of the family ( even the pets!). And to keep up with the latest news, be sure to “Like” them on Facebook too.

Jumpy Baby Walker {Review}

My 8 month old baby boy trying out his Baby Jumpy Walker

My son just turned eight months old and he’s quite determined to get a move on! He’s always wanting to stand up and put his feet forward in a walking motion while bobbing up and down when holding on to our hands. This action is quite encouraged but it can often put quite a undesirable strain on the back of whomever way be helping him along. But now strain be no more with a wonderful product I wish I had when my oldest was a baby called the  Juppy Baby Walker.

The Juppy Baby Walker was created to be a training aid in helping your baby boy or girl ( 7 – 13 months/30lbs) along in learning how to walk It’s also doctor recommended and helps reduce the amount of falls and accidents! And the biggest pro in my opinion is it’s great design to keep it’s wielder’s back pain-free!

I was sent a Juppy Baby Walker in blue  that  is fully lined for my son and we’ve set it to use right away! It doesn’t surprise me my son like my daughter is probably going to be walking well before his first birthday and this product in my opinion is fantastic in helping him get there. I feel that his confidence in taking steps has increased tremendously thanks to Juppy.

The Juppy comes with it’s own pouch making it easy to throw in your car, diaper bag, medium to large sized purse, or luggage for travel. To use, you simply zip the zipper down, place the baby in, and zip it back up. You’ll then take the two adjustable straps and walk with your baby. So simple but yet so effective! The Juppy is very well made and it’s also machine washable.

Taking steps outdoors!

We often go to the park and my son as happy as he’s been in his stroller or front pack, he still wants to get down and explore with his big sister. And since there’s no way I’m going to let him crawl on his hands and knees on the ground, I reach for the Juppy instead! He is so happy to be walking about along with us. Pretty soon we won’t need it all and I’ll be able to pass it along to someone else that I know!

Buy it: You can get your own Juppy Baby Walker online here for either $29.95 or $19.95. Pricing depends on the color you choose whether black, pink, or blue, if you want it lined or not& if you want your babies name embroidered on your Juppy.  This is a fantastic product that I’ve been nothing but happy about.
