Thrifty Thursday – Kool-Aid

If cleaning weren’t enough, somehow we find ourselves cleaning the appliances that clean other things like dishwashers, washing machines and vacuum cleaners. The dishwasher seems to create most of the problem, leaving water spots and streaks on the plates we eat off and the glasses we drink from. Although there are many products on the market to clean your dishwasher some can be very expensive.  Yes vinegar works in the rinse cycle, but who knows when that rinse cycle starts??? We found a cheap option that will help to keep your dishwasher clean more frequently.  Kool-Aid…Yup that’s right! The lemonade flavor Kool-Aid (or generic brand) helps to keep the inside of your dishwasher clean.  So grab a few packets of the drink mix the next time you are at the store and start cleaning.  Just pour the powder into the soap dish and run a regular cycle in an empty dishwasher. It MUST be the lemonade flavor. The acid in this particular flavor is the only one that seems to work. Happy cleaning!

More than a Nursing Cover – Bizzy Babee Nursing Cover

bizzy baby nursing cover in use

Not every mama needs (or wants) a nursing cover. It’s every mother’s right to nurse her child however she’s most comfortable—and, for many moms, that means sometimes they’ll use a cover.

I personally stand by my right to public nursing; however, I’ve got plenty of stretch marks and a post-baby belly that I’m not super psyched to show off. For that reason, I’m more comfortable right now throwing on a cover when my little guy is hungry.

Other Nursing Covers

I’ve had other covers before, and usually, the only thing they covered well was the only part I didn’t really care about covering—namely, my baby. Most covers would ride up and expose my yucky stretch marks, or pull to one side and show off some of that lovely muffin top.

I had a cover with supposedly adjustable neck straps and a plastic insert that’s supposed to make it possible to see your baby as you nurse. That particular cover failed me the first time I needed to wash it – the plastic loop seemed to be malformed by the dryer, and the neck strap would never stay strapped. It was a total waste of everything. Oh, and it was ugly and uncomfortable.

How the Bizzy Babee Nursing Cover is Different

When I received this cover from Bizzy Babee Designs, I was excited as soon as I opened the package. First, the fabric was very soft and comfortable (my previous cover was scratchy cotton). It also is designed so it can’t accidentally ride up and show off tummy – there’s full coverage with this cover.

Probably the best thing about it, though, was the fact that it can also function as a top. It comes in five colors that would complement any wardrobe. I’ve put this cover on over a tank top, and gone out in it. It looks like I’m just wearing a cute poncho-type top.

One of the models on the website even shows off the nursing cover by pairing it with a belt. I don’t really want to attract attention to my waistline right now (what with it being virtually nonexistent), but once I’ve gotten my figure back, I will definitely be throwing my belt on over this cover!

This is a very cute, comfortable nursing cover that would be a great solution for any nursing mama!

How to Get Your Own Bizzy Babee Nursing Cover

Each Bizzy Babee Nursing Cover is $39.99—not a bad price for a cover that can easily convert into a top and be a part of your wardrobe for years to come! You can check out their website to purchase one.

Keep your eyes peeled because we’ll also be giving away a Bizzy Babee nursing cover in April!

Tip Tuesday – Acne

Acne is never fun no matter what your age. Dealing with the flaky red bumps are not just unattractive. They are  annoying and sometimes even painful. Heres a little tip! Did you know that hot peppers are known for fighting acne? Capsicum found in hot peppers such as jalapeños can help ward off those nasty bumps.  Juice your hot peppers and mix a small amount with water to help fight pimples.

This options is not for everyone.  Some people with sensitive skin might suffer burning from the capsicum. Please use sparingly and add more if needed.

Tip Tuesday – Popcorn!

Did you know that you could make your own microwave popcorn? You don’t need to buy prepackaged bags that run higher in price and you don’t need to drag out that air popper either.  Simply take a ¼ cup of popcorn kernels and put them in to an ordinary brown paper bag.  Fold the end over a few times (really tight) and cook for 2 minutes.  You will have a healthy treat at about a 3rd of the cost.  Add your own butter and seasonings and serve.
