A bunch today! Free templates, free fonts, Manic Mommies and Going Green! Whew!

I came across this website today, called The Mom Pack. I found it through my favorite podcast EVER called Manic Mommies. (Hi Erin and Kristen! ) On The Mom Pack site, click on the link and go down the left side...under FREE STUFF, you can click on templates for cute little candy wrapper templates that you could stamp on for little gifts. Also under the same FREE STUFF tab is a link to some free downloadable fonts. I didn't try them yet, but I love free fonts. One of my favorite sites is DaFont. They have everything!

The Manic Mommies podcast can be downloaded through lots of different ways, but I do it through iTunes. You can also just listen online through their blog. Their last podcast was about going green and organic. They even interviewed Kate Gosselin from Jon and Kate Plus 8, one of our very favorite shows! She feeds her kids all organic and gave some great ideas. We decided in our house today that we are going to try to accumulate LESS garbage.

We bought a whole bunch of Rubbermaid containers so we can use them for work and school lunches instead of the 5 or 6 Ziplocs every day from all of us. Other quick and simple ideas we brainstormed include using real silverware at work and washing it instead of plastic, using our "real" towels in the kitchen instead of so many paper towels, and looking into some more organic cleaners. We're going to check out some of the Method cleaning products at Target, especially the Cucumber one because everyone says it smells so good. I am a sucker for good smelling stuff, plus their stuff has cool packaging and I'm a sucker for that too. :) Method even has a blog! We can't wait to get really into this, but you can't do it all in one Saturday, as much as I would like to considering my personality.

Do you know of any cool ideas for going green? Any products you swear by that won't break the bank? Any stamping related cool sites besides SCS that you love? Post them here!
