Soap, delightful drawings, homage to a pencil, and more

Simple Mom has some great sponsors.

For the record, I am picky about recommending resources to my readers. Because I advocate simple living and frugality, it would be confusing at best to recommend a bunch of stuff you don’t really need. Every dollar in our household has a name, so I would be doing you a dissservice to tell you to haphazardly spend money without thinking about it.

So when you see me recommending a store or a product, please know that I either use this item myself, or I can endorse the creator or vendor that they have a quality product.

That said, here are Simple Mom’s fabulous sponsors for July.

savorSavor :: I love recommending small businesses, and I have a soft spot for fellow Etsy shop owners. Savor makes and sells beautiful handmade soaps of all kinds at reasonable prices – shaving soap, olive oil soap, dessert soap, salt bars and soaks, and more. Check it out. And then take a lovely bath.

belle and booBelle and Boo :: First off, adorable website. Secondly, such great artistry! Mandy Sutcliffe is a published children’s illustrator, and in her store, she sells wall art, sweet gift tags, little magnets, and more. I challenge you to resist.

green mommy guideGreen Mommy Guide :: A great resource for taking small steps towards a green lifestyle at home. They understand a real mom’s life, and don’t preach to you the perils of environmental hazards. They give you good ideas. Check them out for green living tips.

lisa leonardLisa Leonard Designs :: You all know how much I love Lisa Leonard’s jewelry. I wear my necklace all the time, and I get so many compliments on it! Her stuff makes great gifts, and it’s reasonably priced. And who doesn’t want to support a mommy business?

todoodlistTodoodlist :: Be looking for a more in-depth review from me soon. In the meantime, I’m thoroughly digesting this little e-book. It’s simple, yet it has such a revolutionary idea. I’m working on a comprehensive productivity system for moms at home, and I plan on using some of Nick Cernis‘ ideas presented here. A great little read!

mom agendaMom Agenda :: Again, look for a full review from me soon. But let’s just say the Mom Agenda is a fun, stylish way to keep your head from spinning. I’m all about sane living.

I’m thankful for these sponsors, as they help keep Simple Mom a great place to write. Please check them out!

  2. I just went to Savor and ordered some really cool stuff!! One of the things she offers is a 3 month soap subscription. You get a new soap each month. I’m excited about what surprise I will get in the mail for the next 3 months. What a great gift idea too! Thanks again for sharing all your cool finds!

  3. I just signed up for Green Mommy’s newsletter!!

    Oh, and I had to click right off of Belle and Boo… none of my dollars have their name on them yet. But there’s always next month! 🙂

    @bee – Good for you! Now just get that zero-based budget going, and see if her stuff is even an option. 😉
