Off-grid pantry planner

I know, I’ve gone about 6 days with no posts…but I was a busy girl! Well, I’m pretty much ALWAYS a busy girl! But if you have young children and love to get great toys and clothes at bargain prices…and you live within driving distance to Canton/Massillon, Ohio then you need to know about this sale!

Lil Lambs Closet
The Church of The Lakes (corner of Fulton/Brunnerdale) in the Canton/Massillon area puts on the Lil’ Lambs Closet sale twice a year. Anyone can sell in it, I’ve been selling and buying their for some time now. Lil’ Lambs takes your gently used or new clothing, toys, nursery furniture, maternity items…infants to kids size 20 and sells them through a highly organized and quality-tight two day sale. Sellers volunteer as workers during the sale and we get to shop exclusively the day before the sale opens to the public! Since I’m working 3 shifts I get to be in the first group of shoppers, tonight! I’m so excited!!

The sales runs this Friday/Saturday March 13 & 14. You can click here to go the website for Lil Lambs and get more info on where they are and what you can expect. This is only a two day sale. Many items are discounted to 1/2 price on Saturday. Sellers keep 70% of their profits and Lil Lambs keeps 30% to donate to children’s charities both local and far reaching. Go to their website and see how much they’ve been able to help and who they’ve helped.

Are you on Facebook? I am. You can follow my blog page at this link.
I also use Myspace, but honestly…I rarely go there. Facebook really is so user friendly, not that Myspace isn’t, but I’ve been able to connect with so many more people and it seems to be easier to connect with so many at once. Recently I asked my FB friends to give me their advice on whether I should send my soon to be 5 yr old to kindergarten this fall or hold him back. This is our first child going into school and I wanted to hear from parent’s who’d been through it already. It really helped me make the right choice I’m confident. Before I asked people for advice, for some reason I was thinking I kind of had to put Brendan in k-garten…then I asked a friend from church who is in the same school district as us if her son was starting, and she said no. I began to think a little deeper about it and decided to poll around for some advice. I decided the day before registration -and after talking to the hubby- to not enroll him and I have been at total peace about it. Facebook was a great tool to help me be able to hear back from so many different perspectives about the pros and cons of sending my son to school at this time.

Preemie Parent Connection
Last night was the March meeting for the preemie group at the hospital. We had a nice sized group show up and the representative for our area from the March of Dimes was speaking about the March for Babies walk coming up in May in Akron, Ohio. I’m planning to get my family involved and will probably “create an event” on my Facebook profile to invite my friends to support the cause. March of Dimes has done much to help meet the needs of many people from knocking out polio and more. I learned some things I didn’t know last night. Awhile back I created a Squidoo lens on the premature issue…monies generated from my site do go to the March of Dimes as well.
