Wanna hear my new hobby? First I went through all of our VHS tapes and treid to convert only to DVD. Our three year old son however is obsessed with Snow White. He sings "Im fishing! Im fishing! For the one I love..hahahahaha" Some VHS will stay for now.
We have been using PaperBack Swap for some time now with very good results but never ventured over to DVD swap. Not sure why.
I finally did and OH MY OH MY!!
You must check it out!!
I got rid of Dorah dvds and the Wiggles and ones I picked up for under a dollar at yard sales and thrift stores and I'm trading for things like Davey and Goliath (LOVE those classic cartoons) and the Jim Elliot documentaries--things I totally would have paid for.
Check it out! And if you do join, would you mention that I referred you?
Many wouldnt think this is very Green or Thrifty...but it works for me:)
Linking up on the Green Blog Hop, Works for Me Wednesday,the 46th Penny Pinching Party

There are times when Blogging makes me feel like one of the not so cool kids. Like when it feels like EVERYONE who is anyone is going to a cool blog conference and bonding without me. I get annoyed with myself for having the mentality of a middle schoolers during those times. There are other times when I am so inspired and enriched form just a few minutes with a "friend" via cyberspace and all centering around time with my family and little ones who need me.
I am participating in th No go Blog-Her lilnk up and am going to answer a few interview questions Ok?
When did you start blogging?
I had been reading blogs for awhile but starting my own when I was about to deliver my 5th baby. Not very good timing:)
Why did you start blogging?
As a live journal, to document the good days for the bad days. To show others that we arent all Mrs. Cleaver or perfect and thats OK. I know it wasnt a very good time to start and I havent always given 100% but sometimes you just need to step out and do what you can instead of waiting for the perfect time to come. It may not come.
What is one thing you are going to do this week that is WAY cooler than going to BlogHer?
Hmmm...I dont know about cooler ( remember my fighting those terms?) but I know that I am needed her right now. AND as providence would have it I spent August 5th (my sons birthday) and August 6th in bed with a horrendous flu. So glad I didnt take that with me!!
