Thred Up 1st Box Free! (just pay shipping)

This is an awesome site to get rid of your kids outgrown clothes, toys and books!
All you have to do is sign up, they will even send you the boxes!, fill up the boxes, list the contents, and wait for a taker!
When you sign up, Thred Up will pay for your first box. You will have to pay shipping!
It's very easy to navigate, you can check what boxes you may want, and use your free credit. Boxes are rated, so you have an idea of who to order boxes from.
Thred Up will also give you credit when you send a box!
I have had a lot of fun with this site, and it's much cheaper then buying brand new, and sometimes even much cheaper then buying from consignment shops!
Sign up here to get started on getting rid of all your kids outgrown stuff;p

Meeting Scheduled for November 5th at 2pm

Yay! We have our next meeting scheduled, and that will be at 2pm on November 5th!
At Shady Tree Daycare!
Again, so far we have Crunchmasters gluten free snack crackers for a sampling, and I think we may have another real cool event for the kids, I'm not sure exactly yet when and if we were approved, but I will have details posted as soon as I get them!
We may also have some extra MAM products for those that are new to our group, or haven't received any yet!
If you can think of anything that we can add to our meeting, please comment here!!
I was thinking of maybe trying to fit November 26th in as well, just so maybe we can figure out Christmas plans for gathering things to donate to the church, and I am working on getting business cards made up for us to hand out to try and grab new members!!
I know this is a holiday weekend, and it may be hard for all of us to meet that weekend, please let me know of any other ideas any of you may have!!!

Printable Coupons on Home Page

I added a coupon widget, if you look under the posts, it should be one of the first boxes that pops up.
You can check out some of the newest printables available, and you just click, and it will take you right to one of the biggest and best printable coupon networks out there!! Enter a zip code to see if the offers get better.
When I see any real good deals, I'll let you know right away!!

Next Meeting Lineup so Far

We do have a Crunchmasters sampling opportunity.
This company makes gluten free snacks! My husband was recently diagnosed with with Celiac Disease, and we have been having a hard time trying to find awesome tasting crackers for him! So, hopefully these are it!!
I am doing my best to get another sampling for us as well!
I am also going to be posting the websites that promote through groups like these, that way if a few of us apply for samplings, we may get plenty more!!
We also need to set up a refreshment schedule. Whether it is something purchased or something homemade, we should have a couple members at a time scheduled for this, just in case something happens that somebody can't make it, but I'm sure we will be fine having more snacks;p
We also need to discuss what we can do to help local families in need for the holidays. If there is also any members that are in need of any help, please message Brandy or Natosha, this can be kept private, that will be no problem. But we want to make sure everybody in our group is taken care of for Christmas gifts for their children, toiletries, household products and food. We also would like to do our best to donate items to a local church who will distribute these to families in need, or the Upper Daulphin School, or families that any of us know personally! I'd like to discuss all of this in our November meeting!
It may end up that we need 3 more meetings before Christmas, please comment with any suggestions on this, and if that will fit your schedules! I think 2 hrs per meeting should be a decent time frame, please also let me know what you think!!
Comment with anything else we should cover at our next meeting, and we can all take a part in what we can accomplish!
I will probably have plenty of coupons, and I think it would be neat if we start a short schedule of our "learning" portion of the meeting, that way we can all plan on teaching the rest of us how to do whatever it is you do that we can all benefit from;p
Like I said before, I have been a mom and a bartender for more then half my life. I have also been a couponer, deal hunter, etc, for more then 20 years. Other then that, I am fairly good at networking, finding crazy deals online, and in stores, and cooking and baking. I do make some real awesome fudge and cookies! LOL! I am only about 6 years into the online earning opportunities, but I can offer a lot of advice on this, as well as the links I will be posting here on our site! I am also good at finding great gift ideas for the lowest prices possible, as well as creating menu plans that accomodate families of any size and budget. (and yes, I usually have lots of extra coupons to share), and I work only weekends, so, I am always able to update our site and Facebook, especially since I am already on here for my own business.
Oh, my husband is real good at fixing vw's and making them look super cool, and he can do a lot of different repairs and oil changes, some with the help of his friend and a code reader, on any vehicle;p
So, just to try to implement the "trade" or "barter" part of our group, I will use this as an example....
My husband will say, change the oil in your vehicle for, a few jars of salsa and pasta sauce that you made! Or, I might create a menu for a month with recipes for your family, or grab your monthly coupon deals when I run and do my own trips, for a case of beer! (Ok, well, I guess maybe that should be the other way around) But, I figure you know what I mean, lol.
The next part I would love to get finished right away, is if you are a crafter, a small business, or a direct seller, (ie; Mary Kay, Avon, etc), there is a tab named, "BUY AND SELL" Please, add your info here!! If you have a banner or ad, you are more then welcome to place that on our home page too!! I would personally rather buy from somebody I knew personally, rather then somebody else. Plus I like to help friends and family, and this is 1 way of doing this.
I believe this is long enough, and I have lots of tabs to fill out! (and lots of housework, laundry and errands and a dinner to make) lol, so I will end this post here! Please comment away!!!


Just in case you want to join;p, our meetings are once per month, on a Saturday. I'd like to have it that we have a set Saturday each month, but with some of our shedules, (especially mine), we have work on Saturdays's.
I will do my best to have these scheduled as soon as possible, hopefully in time for all our meetings!
Everything will also always be updated here in a timely fashion.

Our New Name

We decided that a name that does not leave anybody out, (dads, grandparents, teens, singles) this way, nobody will feel "wierd" or "goofy" joining a mommy group, or I guess I should say, a "Not Just 4 Moms" group.
Thanks to Joellen, for the awesome idea for our name!

Please contact me with your email if I do not already have it, and I will be sending administrator emails to everybody in the group. This way we can all post and add what we would like to make note of!
We can also start planning our November meeting, and hopefully bring new people along!!
I apologize for this not being completely filled in yet, I will be working on this blog pretty much every week. That way I can get all of the info and links that I have to share, to help everybody start the "online" process, with earning, and freebies!
If you are not a member, and you found us on Facebook, or heard about us from a friend, please leave your email under the JOIN US tab, or email me at busymommylist@yahoo.com!
We are always happy for new members!!
