Coach Purse $3 =) and biokleen is awesome

In the spirit of sharing some of the things I have been up to over the last year (since I stopped finding time to blog when my second boy was born) here's a good thrifty score write up post from a few months ago:
I am officially in love with biokleen, this stuff rocks! I found a COACH purse at goodwill. They normally charge more for them, but this one REEKED of cat 9*$$ (otherwise it's still in REALLY nice shape). So they were selling it for $3 like the other purses. I figured what the heck- why not see if I could salvage it. I dumped it in the sink with a bottle full of biokleen and let it soak. Took it out and put it through a delicate cold rinse inside a mesh bag and it smells wonderful. Not even a hint of the former smell. So cool!

my 6 month old was nice enough to model it for me =)
coolest find ever.

About Me

My photo

I'm a semi crunchy stay at home wife and mama of two boys. Extend Breastfeed, Cloth diaper, Cosleep, Babywear, Homeschool, Homebirth. My sons and I have some serious health concerns (allergies, growth hormone, kidney, lung, spine, etc...). We didn't realize they were genetic (or I had) until after Trace's birth. Tristian had some big medical and possibly/probably autism related delays in early childhood but also taught himself to read at 2yrs and started on math equations at 4yrs. Trace is bit delayed across the board by about 6 months, but as he's 1yr+ behind in height... it's not very noticable ;-) Trace is very musical and hands on. With plenty of common sense, love, good doctors and faith we are doing wonderfully!

This wonderful chapter in my life of discovering the green subculture has (mostly) ended. Living green on a budget has changed from the thrill of discovery to habit. This blog remains in rememberance- with occasionally crossover posting. I hope you join me- the same green mama on a budget, in a new blog celebrating life's daily experiences- LIFE O'KAY Still lots of crafts & crunchiness- with even more sweet family moments.
