Diapers.Com Provides Way To Send Supplies To Victims of Hurricane Sandy

Today Quidsi, Inc., owner and operator of Diapers.com, announced the launch of an online donation center to send essential supplies to families affected by Hurricane Sandy. Their new feature provides an incredibly fast way for us to help storm-ravaged families in the wake of the damage. Diapers.com has already begun to help families in need by providing 60,000 diapers, 8,000 bottles of baby formula, and 3,000 bowls of pet food through nonprofit partners like the American Red Cross and the Jersey City Humane Society and hopes that we will join in helping support our neighbors on the East Coast.

By clicking on www.diapers.com/sandy, visitors to the site can make an “essentials” donation valued at $10, $25, $50, $100, $250, and $500. You can also select whether to send specific essentials like diapers, baby food, formula, and clothing from Diapers.com; pet essentials like food and cat litter from Wag.com; or household essentials like cleaning supplies and batteries from Soap.com and Casa.com. 

Diapers.com’s recovery efforts have been focused on what they do best: delivering the essentials that people need, where and when they need them. 

“The Hurricane Sandy disaster is particularly close to our hearts,” said cofounders Marc Lore and Vinit Bharara, both New Jersey natives. “Many of our employees live in communities that remain impacted by the storm. We are grateful for their safety, but know there are many others still desperately in need of help.”

Diapers.com is working directly with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations and government agencies to quickly get these essentials to the families who need them most and to allow the greatest flexibility to the donor.  I am grateful for heat coming from my vents, lights that come on at the flick of a switch and water flowing from my faucet.  Our East Coast neighbors have lost so much. Let's rise to the occasion and help our neighbors.  Please donate at www.diapers.com/sandy .

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.
Make sure it is sturdy. The …

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
