As 2017 begins, many of us are setting goals and resolutions for the new year. One that I’m seeing pop up quite a bit among friends, family, and many bloggers I follow is that they’d like to simplify. In my own case, that’s a constant challenge for our family, especially with the “glut of stuff” that we’ve discovered during our move.
So, I thought today it would be neat to share one of my favorite tips for simplifying – going green! And, odds are, you’re already doing one of these suggestions already. (If you’re on the Thirsties website – and you are – chances are good!)
Why does going green help simplify your life? Some people think that adopting a new lifestyle is actually a huge chore, filled with to-do lists and the purchasing of new stuff to help fulfill it. But, going green is actually the opposite.
Simply put, … Read More
Sometimes it’s a resolution. Sometimes it’s a list of goals. Sometimes it’s simply one word.
Whatever you choose, the coming of a new year is the perfect time to hit the reset button on life and analyze the areas of your life where you’re totally killing it – and where you could use some work.
While I’ve got a ton of areas to work on (don’t we all?!), I like to pick a single word that helps focus my attitude and attack strategy, as it were. This year I also made a casual list of specifics – from finding constructive ways to destress with yoga and essential oils to creating time each week to write – but the ultimate goal can be summed up in one word: POSITIVITY.
Originally, my goal was to “focus” more, but I felt this word encapsulated the true goal of 2017. Many, myself included, found … Read More
The holidays are marked with such vibrant memories we get to December and can hardly believe a whole year has past. Has it been a whole year already? I remember when… One of our favorite things to do at the end of December is look back and remember the last twelve months and celebrate what made the year special. In that spirit here is Thirsties 2016 Year in Review.
2016 was a year full of amazing new products and fabulous cloth diaper prints and colors. Starting us off in January was the release of our Valentine’s print, “Straight to My Heart.”
March was a noteworthy month because we started broadcasting live through Thirsties Facebook Page. #ThirstiesLive is a wonderful opportunity for us to connect with our customers and folks in the cloth diapering industry. We strive to provide … Read More
If you’re anything like me, you’ve pretty much finished your shopping (or run out of allotted Christmas funds, whichever comes first) by this point. I had quite a late start with things this year and wasn’t nearly as organized as I usually am (I start buying in September or earlier), but moving had us stretched in lots of directions. So, here we are, less than a week to go before the “big day” and I’m trying to milk every second out of our holiday fun-making.
But, needless to say, anything I come up with has to be cost effective (or downright free). Luckily, this isn’t an impossible feat. Today, I’m sharing some of our family’s favorite ways to celebrate the holidays on a budget.
Looking at Lights – One of my family’s favorite activities this time of year is to bundle the kiddies up and load up the car to … Read More
‘Tis the season to show others how much we care with a token from the heart! Or, at least, that’s what we hope to do.
When you’re a cloth diapering family with a little one at home, so often we end up with gifts that don’t accurately reflect our values and wishes. While we’re grateful for whatever we receive and the thought behind it, getting things like chemical-laden baby toiletries (which we don’t want to throw out, but also don’t want to put on our baby’s skin – or in contact with our cloth diapers) put us in a sticky situation.
Here are some of the items that I have given (or have considered giving) fellow cloth diapering families at Christmastime:
A Cloth Wipe Kit – I have a handful of friends and family who cloth diaper but who have been on the fence about using cloth wipes. This is … Read More
