What!? Packable Jackets

I ordered these packable jackets from Old Navy 4 days ago. They were normally priced $29.50 and they were on sale and of course I had a coupon. I ended up paying $12. And I went through ebates and will be getting 5% cash back.



Anyways


I got these today and what a great idea a packable jacket. Theres been so many times we go somewhere and everyone takes off their jackets and it seems I have a mountain of jackets piled in my double stroller. Now I know why I got a double stroller to pile things in.



Just let me show you how packable these are.



I already love these~~

EBATES

I have been ordering through Ebates for a couple of months now. I have already received one check for $17.

Well I have another one coming for $29. All just by ordering stuff I would have ordered anyways.

If I buy something off Ebay I go through Ebates. It may be $1 here and $1 there or it may be $10.

So if you wanna earn extra cash go sign up (click below )

Ebates


and before you buy anything online go to Ebates and search the store you are ordering from and it automatically opens a ticket for you and tracks your order and the checks in the mail.

Its that simple.

The percentages change. For Black Friday I ordered a few things from the Disney Store and Ebates had 10% cash back and with a coupon, and free shipping I was able to get some super cheap christmas gifts.

 You can find stores like Gap,Old Navy, Boden (my fav), Crocs (another fav), Borders...the list goes on and on.

Oh and by the way you can still take advantage of that 10% cash back from the Disney Store.


Sign up with the link below and I get $5 and theres even a special gift for just for you. You get $5 too!

You are welcome

Now go sign up and save some $$$$◦

Does this bother you?

Commonly used food dyes, such as Yellow 5, Red 40, and six others, are made from petroleum and pose a “rainbow of risks.” Those risks include hyperactivity in children, cancer (in animal studies), and allergic reactions. In 2008, because of the problem of hyperactivity, the Center for Science in the Public Interest petitioned the Food and Drug Administration to ban the use of these dyes. The British government and European Union have taken actions that are virtually ending the use of dyes throughout Europe.

Food dyes also serve to deceive consumers: they are often used to simulate the presence of healthful, colorful fruits and vegetables. But considering the adverse impact of these chemicals on children, and considering how easily they can be replaced with safe, natural ingredients, it's time to get rid of them altogether from the United States and Canada.





Kellogg's Nutri-Grain bars are made with natural colorings in Britain but contain food dyes in the United States.


Go here and here to learn more.

So are we not as good as Europeans?

I recently have learned about food dyes and what it does to our childrens health. And like anything else if it bothers me I do something about it. I'm not one to put on the blinders. And is there ALOT of food with these dyes- fruit snack, butter, soups, cheese, cereals, yogurt and alot more.  Go check out your cabinet and fridge and let me know what you find.

What can you do?

Write your Senator and Congress  asking them what they are doing to push the government to obey the food safety laws and ban these dyes.

Or read more here then do something about it.

For your children.◦
