Review and Giveaway of Green Boat Stuff

I came across a great site earlier in the month called Green Boat Stuff. First I have to tell you, we are NOT boaters, except for a cruise, but we are campers. Green Boat Stuff has all types of environmentally friendly boating supplies, but they can be used for camping or even in your home.

I was able to try out two items from their Green Galley Gear section.

This is a vegetable scrub brush, that works great, but for camping or boating you could also get a second one as a toilet brush (make sure to label them). I liked that it cleaned my potatoes thoroughly in very little time because of the size of the head.

This one is the small round scrub brush. If you have seen some of my recipes you know I love cooking. I have Circulon pans which I love, but with the circular grooves it makes cleanup hard sometimes. This small round scrub brush was PERFECT for this. It was stiff enough to clean the grooves yet soft enough so it would not scratch the pans.

Green Boat Stuff has generously offered to give a $25 gift certificate to one lucky reader! All you have to do is go to their site and tell me what type of items you could use around your house, on your boat or camping. Entries will be taken until Monday, March 2 at noon CST. At that time I will pick a winner and post the name here and on the main blog. You will have 24 hours to get back to me with your information or a new winner will be picked. US only.

How to keep track of it all!


I have had several people ask me how I juggle being a single parent, full time employee, full time blogger of 2 blogs, doctor, chauffeur and cook. It all has to do with organization. With 3 girls running in 3 directions at the same time it can be a real mess.

Earlier this year I started using the Mom Agenda mini daily planner. What is great about this is that there is tons of room to write stuff down on! There is a phone book in the back that can be removed to stick in your next years planner.

It has day on a page veiws for all my information plus up to 4 kids plus monthly views too making it easier to keep track of schedules, practices and appointments.

Check out MomAgenda's site to see if they have the solution to your scheduling issues.

Pacific Shave Oil




I tried a bottle of this small but mighty shaving oil made by Pacific Shaving Company. The directions said to apply a few drops of the oil to wet skin and shave. I thought there was NO WAY that a few drops would go so far...I was wrong! This one little bottle says it is good for up to 100 shaves and for $6.95 that is a great bargain. I have never heard of shave oil before, but now I am hooked.

Another great product I found is Skoy cloths.

The SKOY cloth is a fabulous, absorbent, biodegradable and natural multi-use cloth. Our re-usable earth friendly cloth is perfect in your kitchen, bathroom, and on most surface areas in your home or office. SKOY cloth can be used in place of your sponge, wash cloth or paper towels.

It is a European made product and 100% biodegradable because it is made from a natural cotton and wood-based cellulose pulp. SKOY cloth is a chlorine-free product using water-based colors and inks. After an independent composting test, SKOY cloth broke down completely within 5 weeks.

The SKOY cloth is a durable product due to the reusability factor and can last months. Using a SKOY cloth is equivalent to using 15 rolls of paper towels in an average home. With the high cost of paper towels, at least $2 a roll, SKOY cloth is the obvious choice for your wallet and the environment.
