Special Gifts & Seasons Deals

Most deals that you`ll encounter on No More Rack are the so-called “Today`s Deals” that can be found on the site`s home page and which last for only 24 hours.

Smartipants Cloth Diaper Review & Giveaway

smartipants

If you know me at all, you know that I love to cloth diaper. Since my daughter was 4 months old, I have been exclusively cloth diapering and I’ve found that it works wonderfully well for me.

When I tell people that I use cloth diapers, many will ask me how I deal with certain “unpleasantries” of the task. It is true, even if the pros outweigh the cons, those cons can be a strong deterrent. But what if some of these cons were eliminated? Would you be interested then?

Recently I found a diaper that has made some of the unpleasant tasks of cloth diapering so much easier. Smartipants is a smartly designed diaper that I have completely fallen in love with. It is by far the best cloth diaper I have used and If I ever find the need to buy more, I will be purchasing this brand. Here are some of my favorite things about this special diaper:

smartipants pocket
No more separating! The Smartipants is considered a pocket diaper which means that there is an washable, absorbent  insert that slides into a “pocket” of the diaper. With every other pocket diapers, you have to separate the soiled insert before washing… but not with Smartipants. It’s been specially designed to separate itself in the wash! Trust me, one of the grosses things about cloth diapering is having to handle the soiled diaper, but the Smartipants diaper has completely eliminated that job. I was a little skeptical about the validity of this amazing claim, but it truly does work. Every time I’ve washed this diaper it’s separated itself and has come out looking and smelling clean. I just love it!

No more rinsing! Another very unpleasant task for me has been rinsing my diapers. However, the special lining in the Smartipants diaper not only absorbs and traps wetness, it also repels solids. You won’t have to rinse or scrape out the diaper when your child has a bowel movement! Just hold it over the toilet and shake; the solids fall right out! I couldn’t wait to test this out and found myself urging my daughter to “make a poopie” in her diaper. Finally, we got a really good one and I ran to the bathroom to see how well it would come out. Sure enough, with just one shake, the solids just fell into the toilet. Never have I been so happy to flush a poopie!

smartipants leak

No more leaks! The diaper also features Leak Guard Technology that prevents any leaks. I can attest to the fact that this does indeed work. Due to a situation beyond my control, my daughter ended up wearing this diaper for almost 3 hours. With my other cloth diapers, we would have had a leak for sure. But this diaper held everything in! This mommy was both happy and impressed.

So honestly, with this diaper, you never have to even touch any waste at all. It’s just as easy as using disposables only instead of throwing them away, you simply toss them into the wash. It’s so simple!

Besides these innovative features, this diaper has also adapted a few more of my favorite features including:

smartipants snap

Adjustable sizing: Long-lasting snaps allow you to create the best fit for your child and will enable you to use this diaper from birth to potty training.

smartipants waterproof

Waterproof exterior: The outside is completely waterproof providing extra protection for heavy wetters.

smartipants elastic
Gentle elastic: Used on the back and around the legs, gentle elastic provides both comfort and the best possible fit for every child.

Being Frugal for Contact Wearers

contact-lensWhen I was 5 years old, I was given my first pair of glasses and have worn corrective lenses ever since. From kindergarten till 8th grade I wore large framed glasses – you remember the type; the ones that covered half of the face and garnered pity from everyone around. I dearly love my mother, but looking back at my pictures from those days makes me seriously wonder what she was thinking to allow me to wear such glasses. She insists they were cute, but I know better.

Anyway, I begged my parents to allow me to wear contact lenses and they finally relented. I’ve been wearing them since 8th grade and prefer them to those dreaded glasses. However, I soon discovered that in order to fill my prescription, I had to renew it annually and consequetially pay the price of another eye exam. I quickly learned to keep an eye on the calendar and buy another year’s worth of contacts just before my prescription expired. In this way, I was able to space my eye exams to be every two years instead of one.

Now, being the frugal person that I am, I attempted to wear my lenses past the recommended time frame of one month. However, I soon realized that this was not actually worth the savings. I had a friend who actually messed up her eyes by attempting this practice. If you are trying to be a frugal contact wearer, don’t fall into the trap of wearing your contacts longer than is recommended. It really is not worth it in the long run.

One of the best ways to save money on contacts is to buy online. At BuyMoreContacts.com, you can find savings of up to 70% off retail prices. My favorite brand is Acuvue and by purchasing online, I don’t have to sacrifice my favorite brand in order to save money. I recently decided to purchase a less expensive type of contact lenses just to save a little more money, but at BuyMoreContacts.com, I am able to get the nicer lenses at the same cost I was paying for the cheaper brand. There is also free shipping available on orders over $75. Another great thing about ordering at BuyMoreContacts.com is that if there is a rebate offer on the lenses you purchase, the rebate information is sent with your order. You don’t have to research any further than your package to find out if there are any additional savings possible!

Ordering online is both simple and convenient. At BuyMoreContacts.com you can either order online or over the phone. While browsing their site, I found that they make their contact information very visible so you won’t be frustrated trying to search for a phone number or email address. The “Help” section of the site is also very thorough and easy to find. They accept many forms of payment and make the overall ordering process as easy as possible. I’ve never found an easier way to save money on a product I use every day!

So to all frugal contact wearers, consider these tips on saving money on contact lenses and be sure to check out online ordering. It’s been a wonderful resource for me and I hope it helps you as well.

If Muppet Love is Wrong, I Don’t Wanna be Right

My son had his self-proclaimed BruthaFromAnothaMutha over for a play date yesterday. They had wand fights a la Harry Potter, defiled my daughter’s Barbies, made potions out of dish soap and recreated the Death Star out of Legos—all within an hour of his arrival.

The Serb has been battling a cold that would, according to him, kill a lesser man, so I decided to take the boys to the movies. My reasons were completely selfish: I love the Muppets and was itching for an excuse to see their new movie.

I’ve recently showed my kids Swedish Chef videos online and “Mahna Mahna” has become a weird call-and-response theme song for my family:

Me (in the kitchen, under my breath): “Mahna Mahna.” My four-year-old daughter (yelling from her bedroom): “Do Dooo Do Do Do.”

Luckily, the mom of my son’s friend is a SistahFromAnothaMistah and she joined us at the theatre. Armed with twenty dollars’ worth of confectionary goodness, my friend and I settled into seats behind our sons (this is as close as eight-years-old boys will get to their mommies in public…until it’s time to go pee).

The movie was as delightful as expected—most of the jokes flew right over the kids’ heads and had the parents giggling like fools. We came home and my son begged me to show him “Mahna Mahna” on YouTube, so I Googled the song without the “Muppets” qualifier.

The result? Porn.

“Mahna Mahna” was written by some Italian dude in the 60s for a soft-core porn movie that takes place in Sweden. It’s more “Benny Hill” than “Debbie Does Dallas”, but I’m still bummed that my favourite Muppets’ song is now as defiled as my daughter’s Barbie.

I blame the Swedish Chef: those fingers are too pervy for PBS.

mOmma Rocking Cup and Soft Spoon Review

momma_logo02

Ya know, it’s so much fun to walk into a room and see heads turn as they look at the cool green cup in Kara’s hands.

Recently, through Family Review Network I received the mOmma Rocking Cup with straw and was immediately impressed with the unique design. So is everyone else that has seen it. It is quite impressive looking and I’m always getting questions about how well it works compared to a normal sippy cup.

It took Kara a little while to learn that she did not have to tilt this cup back like her other cups. Every time she would tilt it, the liquid would be moved away from the straw end and she would get frustrated not being able to get a drink. Once she figured it out, (after about a week of intermittent use) she decided that she loves drinking out of this cup.

She hasn’t quite figured out how to open and close the lid on her own yet. It will be good for her motor skills when she does figure it out. I like how the straw can be tucked away by twisting the lid shut. It makes for clean storage in my diaper bag without having to worry about losing any cap.

IMG_0594

I actually was disappointed though to discover that my cup does have minor leaking issues. As long as I store the cup upright, it is safe. However, it’s round design lends itself to twist around in my bag and I have often ended up with a small amount of moisture at the bottom of my diaper bag.

I loved the round, ergonomic design at first, but I have found that the round cup is easy to tip over and Kara’s motor skills often leave the cup lying on it’s side (which leads to more leaking).

My favorite part about the cup is the straw. Kara loves drinking out of mommy and daddy’s straws when we go out to eat. Using a straw is also good for her tongue and mouth development. This cup has easily become her favorite to use.

I like how much it can hold without having to be filled up as often. I also like that it is dishwasher safe. That is very important to me as a busy mom.

I would love to see the slight leaking issues with this cup fixed. Other than that, it’s a wonderful cup that is both functional and fashionable. I think Kara even knows how cute she is using her cool, new mOmma cup.

Another great product from mOmma that I had the opportunity to test was the mOmma Soft Spoon. This spoon is unlike any other I’ve ever used. It’s another head-turning design that Kara and I love.

I discovered that this spoon is a great starter spoon for teaching Kara to self feed. Since the spoon is designed so that can stand upright on it’s own, I would dip the tip in applesauce and stand it up in front of Kara. She would grab the spoon and eat the applesauce off of it and hand it back. It was a fun game for her and I was excited to see her starting to feed herself. Since the base of the spoon is round, it is easy for her little hands to grasp.

I also liked that the spoon comes with a cap. This makes it a great spoon for transporting in a sanitary way when I am on-the-go.

The only thing I disliked about this spoon is that the mouth is just a little too wide. I would have preferred a narrower mouth piece that would be easier for Kara to fit in her mouth. I also found that the white tip stained quite easily with spaghetti sauce. I think most spoons stain like that but it’s something that I would love to see prevented in future models.

One thing that I love about mOmma products is that the entire line has a unique design that looks great when used together. You can purchase different lids for the rocking cup to turn it from a straw cup into a bottle and a sippy cup!

You can also purchase the complete line of feeding products with the rocking plate, spoon, and fork!

Check out the full line of mOmma products and let me know what you think!
