Grocery Mate App – Free for limited time! April 25, 2012

App Store – Grocery Mate – Easy to Use Shopping List.

Grocery Mate is a pretty useful iPhone app (universal) for creating shopping lists. It is available for free download for a limited time. Normally, it is $1.99. It isn’t super fancy with tons of bells and whistles. Just an app that let you create multiple shopping lists with quantities and sorted by department. The only downside is that anything not mainstream isn’t programmed so your ethnic grocery list will have to be typed.  The real attraction behind the app is that it syncs your lists across devices and allows you email and share your list as well. I love that both P and I can add to the lists.

I still like my abcnotes app for making to do lists, but this helps me focus on just shopping. It also solves the problem of P calling and asking if I need anything from the store. No need for that or trying to furiously text him a list on the spot. What mom can ever do that anyways with a child under 5 hanging on their leg? Just sync to update the list, and you are good to go. No more scrounging around for that scratch paper you were jotting things down on. It is so helpful that you can easily edit the list to keep anything that wasn’t purchased. I organize my app lists by store and use it for all my shopping lists.



Halo Sleepsacks – $7.99 one day only. February 29, 2012

Kids.Woot® : One Day, You’ll Understand™.

Halo Sleepsack deal today from kids.woot! They only have small and medium sizes right now. Great pricing if you are in need of fleece sacks.

From my previous blog post on Halo Sleepsacks:

These would make a wonderful gift for a baby shower or for an infant..Keep your baby snuggly warm at night and safe from loose blankets in bed which is a major risk factor for SIDs (sudden infant death).

My son slept in a Halo sleepsack during every nap and at night as soon as we stopped swaddling him. He loves his sleep sacks to this day and finds it a very comforting part of his nighttime routine. Best of all, I never worry about him kicking off his blankets even now as a 3 year old. (Halo makes a Big Kids version and also an Early Walker version.)

For future reference, you can sometimes find these on sale at Babies R Us and also sells Halo Sleepsacks which can be ordered site to store for free shipping. Outside of the occasional woot deal, I have also found them for a good price at which if you can combine it with a sale and stack online coupons for free shipping plus a 15, 20 or 30% off coupon.

Highly recommended for all infants and toddlers.



Cal Gear from Old Navy February 24, 2012

Superfan Nation: Cal College Teams | Old Navy.

I am sorely tempted to buy this for myself. Hello Kitty plus Cal on a T-shirt. Anyways, I haven’t looked at Old Navy since there grammatically incorrect “Let’s Go” logos on their college gear.

Anyways, Old Navy has a number of Cal T-shirts for the whole family which won’t break the bank. Honestly, it is a racket trying to get collegiate gear. That being said, how cute will your little girl look sporting this Hello Kitty Cal tee?

Some styles are currently on sale and in the interest of full disclosure, the styles are likely available in your favorite alma mater.



Star Wars Lunchbox and Sandwich Cutter – $4.99 today only February 12, 2012

Kids.Woot® : One Day, You’ll Understand™.

Okay, Fan Boys and Fan Girls, check out today’s hot deal for your little geek or geekette in training. Oh yeah, we are talking old school Star Wars. None of that Episode 1, 2, or 3 garbage here. You’ve got all your fave characters in a slightly Charlie’s Angels-like pose.

Your LO will be sporting a vintage tin lunchbox (really snack sized though). Oh, the memories that brings back for all of us children of the late 70’s and early 80’s. What is not to like about the Millennium Falcon and TIE Fighter sandwich cutters? These can double as cookie cutters as well. At $4.99, this definitely won’t break the bank. They look identical to these at William Sonoma that are regularly priced at $29.95 (currently $9.95 on sale).

Grab this while this deal lasts until 10 pm PST. Seriously at this price, you could probably be the coolest parents on the block if you ordered these for party favors. Of course, you would have to figure out how to get around the limit of 3. Totally doable with some willing family and friends.


Note: This geekette is no Fan Girl, since I am a die hard Trekkie. So, I confess this deal will not make me nearly as excited as Star Trek would.

Kids’ Sigg Bottles -$4.99 September 14, 2011

Kids.Woot® : One Day, You’ll Understand™.

Just saw kids.woot is featuring these kid sized BPA free aluminum Sigg bottles for $4.99. I know that there is some debate over the lining in Sigg bottles before it was redesigned in 2009. You have to use your own judgement about whether or not to buy these as some people have an issue with supporting this company and how they handled the BPA issue. In any event, this is pretty good pricing on these bottles in a variety of stylish designs.
