I know I've mentioned this book before, but we just had to order a new copy because our old one was literally falling apart at the seams (the binding can be called a seam, yes?) so I'm sharing it again.
Katie Morag Island Stories is one of those books that everyone loves to read and hear. The pictures are charming and entertaining. You know that quote from C.S. Lewis- that one that says something like "A book that's worth reading at the age of 10 is a book worth reading at the age of 50" or something? Well, this book passes the test with flying colors. If you're ready to burn the ridiculously bland books that have somehow ended up in your home, take heart- good children's books still exist!

Not the things (although they are handy) but the store. Yesterday we went shopping for the school supplies that we need for this year. My first total was $97.56. Then they scanned my printed coupons and my total came down to $48.56. Then I came home and submitted my rebates (online! No mailing!) and am going to be getting a $24 check in the mail. Which means you know what? School supplies for an entire school year for....drumroll..... $24.56
You guys- 11 reams of printer paper for $9.99. That's what I'm talkin' 'bout!
Go to here and print their coupons and roll in your newly saved dough.
Little White Cardigans
The little white cardigan for girls is like the little black dress for women: you gotta have one. Summer dresses can turn into fall and winter and spring dresses instantly with the addition of the cardi. And white goes with everything, of course.
Cecilia and Mary just got (used) new ones from ThredUp (which look totally brand new, srsly) and they cost me a total of $ZERO because I had a coupon code from them. Do YOU want some dinero for ThredUp? I do believe if you use my referral link right here, you'll git yourself a sweet ten dollah, make me hollah.
This one was Paul's favorite:
