Warming Up to Winter!

Christy Stucker for Fazoli’s Mom Blog: Warming Up to Winter image
Wintertime will be here soon, and there’s so much to do before the season arrives! Looking for foolproof methods to declutter and streamline daily family operations/activities? Start by setting a two-step family focus before the cold sets in: COZY home and wintry FUN for all!

Project COZY Home: Make a list. There are lots of changes ahead, so get organized. Pack all of your summer/fall gear in containers and get out your winter supplies. Every family member can help prepare for the season ahead with age- appropriate tasks.

Warm your home from the inside out. Apply weather stripping (found at your local hardware store) to windows and doors to keep drafty, cold air out if needed. Increase home insulation to keep heat retention up and check your heating system to ensure it’s operating properly. Invest in a space heater for a little supplemental warmth and always be sure to unplug it when not in use. Gather the necessary supplies for your chimney (or outdoor chiminea) for when the temperatures really get chilly.

imageRefresh throw blankets, bedding and comforters with a fresh wash and dry. If you have flannel sheets in the linen closet, now is the time to make the switch. Likewise, make sure all family members have enough cozy clothing to bundle up. Slippers, warm pajamas and fuzzy socks are great ways to feel warmer. Store summer clothing and accessories away to make room for coats, hats, mittens and boots needed for the upcoming months. Donate any outgrown items to shelters. However, hang on to one festive holiday sweater per family member and perhaps a household oddity. To be discussed a bit later…

Project Wintry FUN: Now that your home preparation list has begun (maybe even completed?), get ready to have fun! Prepare all your outdoor cold weather gear for action. Now is the time to make sure sleds, skis, shovels and snowboards are in good operating condition. Perfect weather for optimal use will soon be on the way!

imageSometimes, going outside isn’t an option, so make sure you have indoor activities available. Board games, card games, trivia, puzzles, flash cards and video games should be placed in bookshelves so they’re easy to reach. Have each family member make a wish list of books they would like to read over winter. Stock up on family favorites and any new titles you want to read, but haven’t found the time to do so. Also list any DVDs you’ve been planning to watch but haven’t. The winter season is a good time to catch up on old and new favorites!

As a family, decide on a theme for your holiday decorations this year. Make the house festive together! Doing so will minimize clutter and create a festive space every member of your family can be proud of. Invite friends and family over to enjoy time together in your freshly decorated and organized space. Remember the festive holiday sweaters you saved earlier? Why not host a (tacky?) holiday sweater gathering and have guests bring a “white elephant” item to exchange? All in for cozy, fun times!

imageWant that new gift feeling to last all year? Give the gift of
Le Tote to a loved one or yourself! How would you feel about expanding your high fashion options without busting your budget? How do you feel about FREE 2 day shipping BOTH ways? How do you feel about NOT having to do your own laundry? I know how you feel about contracts/commitments & there aren’t any with Le Tote! Here’s how it works:

First, chose which level you will be Le Tote-ing.
imageOption #1: Jewelry Box
Jewelry Box – $19 a month
-Statement Pieces, simple prices
-3 Pieces of amazing accessories at a time
-Your 1 stop jewelry stop
-MotherStucker’s box included a pair of beautiful high quality earrings & a sparkling statement necklace. Both jewelry pieces were exactly as pictured on the Le Tote site.

imageOption #2: Boutique Box
Boutique Box – $49 a month
-$200+ value in every shipment. 3 Garments & 2 accessories in each tote
-MotherStucker’s box of 3 garments exceed my (high!) expectations. The fit of each item was spot on as described by Le Tote on the site. I received compliments by loved ones & strangers on EACH style.

imageNext, select the Le Tote styles you love. New items are being added constantly to help you stay on trend. Try before you buy. If you love any item(s) –and you will — hold on to what you love and return the rest. This enables you to purchase boutique pieces at consignment prices.

Last but not least – Wear everything as long as you like. Switch it up by exchanging your totes as many times as you want each month. Get your first box this week. Try it NOW by clicking this link: image

White Hot Review Board: Whypee

imageWhat a GREAT product & NEEDED common sense idea! How many times Ladies & Gentlemen have you needed to go to the restroom unexpectedly? I’m talking about those long drives, concerts, at a bar or club, strangers house, or in a port-a-potty (heaven forbid!) with no option but to use the facilities. You open the door to find the toilet seat totally disgusting! Time is of the essence here OtherStuckers! Who wants to hover, lay down toliet paper on the mess, etc.?

imageYou will never encounter that situation again with Whypee. In a matter of seconds 1 Whypee will eliminate the hassle and time of a potentially negative bathroom experience. Whypee ensures a clean, neat, safe, easy and convenient time in the restroom. Leave a lifetime of horrible bathrooms behind you when you have Whypee!

imageForget Pipers Piping, VOTE to make the “I Spy” Personal Attack Wristband a review opportunity on the Quirky site. Click the link here Eleventh Day of Christmas: I Spy & then press the green button to VOTE! “I Spy” is a wearable tech personal attack alarm and GPS tracking device to protect children and others from abduction. In America, more than 797,500 children are reported missing every year. Fortunately only 2% are abducted by non-family members. However, when a child is kidnapped there is typically over a 2 hour delay in the report of a missing child. Sadly, 74% of those that are murdered are killed within the first 3 hours of the abduction. These children are generally low risk victims –74% are girls — 80% were abducted within ¼ mile from their home. Over half were taken by a complete stranger. These statistics show the need for additional systems to come in place and help with the location of missing children in the crucial early stages.

The Solution: “I Spy” is a silent personal attack alarm and GPS tracking device concealed within a discreet flexible silicone rubber wristband. It is intended for use by children old enough to be out on their own and vulnerable adults. In a threat situation the device is activated by pulling out and discarding a small fabric tab. Once activated the device transmits a signal to the smart phone or tablet computer that it is registered to, instantly alerting a parent or carer to the alarm without alerting the abductor. The location of the wearer can then be tracked using a smart phone app until they are re-united with their parent or carer. Help make “I Spy” a reality OtherStuckers and VOTE!
