I consider us "green" people. We like to save energy, save water, recycle, save the earth. One of the easiest things to do is to change out your lightbulbs. LED bulbs look more like traditional CFL bulbs and are actually brighter while using just a fraction of the energy!
We are very into technology around here. The 4 year old already knows his way around a tablet and the basics of a Linux computer. The 1 year old can already use a mouse. We feel that technology is a part of us and is all around us and is an invaluable tool that they will need to master at a very young age. No worries, they still have books and play outside and have lots of toys that don't require batteries. Everything in moderation. That being said, we bought two different Android boxes to try to find one for Froot Loop to use.
I’ve been looking for a barcode scanner for inventory — for both business and personal uses. This wireless scanner allows me to wander around the room and quickly scan items. The scanner is very lightweight. It scans barcodes on books, DVDs, CDs, etc. (It doesn’t scan QR 2D codes, just the standard barcodes we’ve had around for a while.)
I bought one of these adhesive phone pouches and I have to tell you, I LOVE IT. I originally thought... this is a stupid thing but I'm only out a few bucks since I had a coupon so if I don't like it, then oh well. I've had it for a few months and now I actually wonder how I lived without one.
I’ve found a new line of toys that both of my boys absolutely love, although Froot Loop doesn’t seem to understand that they are Cocoa Puff’s toys and he gets first dibs on them. Being a 3 year old sure is tough!
