Green Tip Tuesday - Drink Green

Ahhh, sorry I'm late posting, but today was a busy & successfull day. Well sort of... Walgreens was out of some of their deals, but all is well! I spend $0 because I didn't buy anything! Hubs was happy about that! lol

So today I was thinking about what to blog about and then I was talking to my mom about the wedding we went to this past weekend. So I thought I'd post about how to drink "Green!"

  • First... go with GLASS! It's much more prettier, no? And recycling glass is more eco-friendly than recycling cans.
  • Less packaging = Less waste!
  • Buy a Keg! What? Yes, buy a Keg! Why? Well, like the tip above, less waste!
  • No "SOLO" cups. Especially if you have a keg use reusable cups that way those "SOLO's" won't end up not "SOLO" in the landfill!
  • Organic! Yes, there is organic beer. I have never seen it, so don't know if it's much more expensive, but ask about it.
  • Local Brewery... it's always best to buy anything local. Some local breweries may even be better than the ones you drink now!
Some additional wedding tips. If you're going to a wedding and know some of the other guests going, offer to go together (designate a driver) and split on the cost of drinks & gas! Agree on a cut-off time. This may be awkward or weird, but it's never very nice to see a close friend so drunk they can't even stand up.

So next time you go to a wedding be a bit more greener! Oh and if you're wondering, I don't drink. I did go with Hubs to pick out a drink. We went with Crown Royal and we kept the glass, it's so pretty! We had a great time. Hubs got drunk, his cut off was 10pm, but he went till 10:30, lol.

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
