October Empties

Another month, another empties post. I went through surprising a lot this month. I wasn’t expecting to use up so much, but it seems like a lot of my products are on their last legs. I expect November and December to be heavy months as well. I am grateful that I never lost power in the storm that terrorized New England this week and I pray for the lives lost in the terrorist attack in New York City. That city has gone through way too much. My car was damaged in the storm, but at least, no one got hurt. I hope everyone is having a nice weekend. I’ll be outside playing with my son today.

I am super impressed with what I was able to move out this month. I’m running low on product reviews, so I might disappear during the week with no new posts once in a while. On those weeks, I will be writing product reviews for my blog. I like to hand write them first before typing them up on my blog. Next week will probably be an empty week. I’m going to try to write as many reviews as I can. Maybe I can empty out my review basket. I’m hoping to write ten reviews, because lets face it, there are like 50 products in my review basket right now. lol. If I do 5 reviews a day this weekend, I’ll be happy.

With Love,

Selena

Animal Crackers

For Gerber Graduates Animal Crackers

food

These cookies went stale, because Dean did not like the taste of these. They are very bland and have so much cinnamon that it doesn’t taste good at all. He ate half of them. He likes regular graham crackers or animal crackers, but these do not taste that great at all. These would be great for the less adventurous toddler who likes more mild flavors. The quality was good. He just likes more flavor. He eats adult snacks now (chips, animal crackers, Ritz, etc) so I would not repurchase. I do recommend though.

Banana

For Parent’s Choice Toddler Banana Cookies

food

Dean did not like these bland banana flavored graham cookies and I do not blame him. I will not repurchase, because he didn’t like it. He loves the Parent’s Choice pouches, though and I like the diapers and wipes. The new Organics line of pouches are his favorite, but nothing beats the Sweet Potato and Cinnamon pouch. I have been enjoying this Walmart brand, not all of the products can be winners and that’s true of every brand. Every child is different. I think I might try the yogurt drops again, since he is older. He might be able to handle them better. I would say that these cookies are better suited for young toddlers who haven’t been exposed to spices yet. Dean loves my dad’s spicy spaghetti!

Lil’ Crunches

For Gerber Graduates Lil’ Crunches

These are made with whole wheat and they have a melt-able texture that Dean loves. The pictures above are for the beanies, but you get the picture. I have moved him from the crunches to the beanies, which are made with beans. It helps him get enough protein and they are a really healthy snack. These crunches are more like Cheetos for toddlers, but still healthier than actual Cheetos but still. I love having snacks that I can feed him that are not messy. He takes a bath almost every night, but I don’t always have the time to put him in the high chair for him to have his snack. We snack on the go, so these are perfect for that. I always had a can of these in the diaper bag for when we ate out and go to appointments. They keep him occupied when he starts to get fussy.

September Empties

I have not counted my empties beforehand so it will be a complete surprise to see how many products I have used up this month. I am happy to have finish at least one full sized item this month that I can remember and I am really proud of myself. It was a big 2 oz night time face cream that I didn’t particularly enjoy. So, even if I only finished up like 20 things, I feel like I have accomplished so much more. Let’s get into seeing what I used up this month instead of continuing this long intro.

24 products empty isn’t a bad number to end the month with. I already have four or five empties in my basket right now and I’m sure I’ll have more soon. It seems like some things are running out all at once, but I have backups. I’m hoping that October brings a solid 20 product month as well. I’m usually very happy with using up 20 products a month. I know that may seem like a lot to other people, but I have a ton of deluxe and sample sizes that need to be used up. I’m forever adding to the collection with my Sephora and Walmart beauty boxes. I’m getting there though. I don’t have quite as big of a stash as I used to.

With Love,

Arrowroot

For Gerber Graduates Arrowroot Cookies

food

These were a great first cookie that Dean didn’t have until a day before his first birthday and he loved them. Once he mastered how to eat a whole bag of them nicely without losing interest in them. I did not repurchase them again. It’s since when he was learning how to eat, but animal crackers are basically the same thing and he eats those now. The cookies were big enough for him to hold and bite, since he had/has teeth since he was four months old. He now has all of his teeth except for the 2 year molars. The cookies are designed to quickly soften and are easily mashed with or without teeth, making them easy to chew and swallow. They are great for kids learning to hold and chew.

Medley’s

For Mott’s Medley’s

food

Dean loves these fruit snacks made with real fruit juice and 3 grams of fiber per pouch. It is very healthy compared to other fruit snacks as it doesn’t contain anything artificial. My dad loved these as well and I had to buy each of them their own box to enjoy. I have repurchased this and I will continue to repurchase on occasion. I like Dean to have actual fruit as a snack, so these are an occasional treat that Dean enjoys. It is a guilt free fruit pouch that is actually good for your kid. More brands need to take the healthier approach.
