Give your used books new life & earn CASH!

I recently discovered a great site - Cash 4 Books! You can turn your used books into money in your pocket! I had a bunch of books piling up that I was planning on selling at my spring yard sale and thought I'd give this site a try. I went through all my books and found 6 that Cash 4 Books was willing to buy back and I now have $40 coming to me! That's a heck of a lot more than I would have made on those 6 books at a yard sale! It really is super easy to do this, here are the steps -

1. Sign up for a new account at Cash 4 Books
2. Enter the ISBN number off the book to find out if they are buying the book (once you enter the ISBN number you will get the price that they will buy the book for)
3. Once all your books are entered click checkout
4. Choose your shipping method (shipping is FREE you don't have to pay to ship your books)
5. Print your packaging slip
6. Print your shipping label
7. Package up your books
8. Drop the package off at a FedEx location or at your local Post Office
9. Wait for your payment!

You can choose to receive payment via a check that is mailed to you or by having it deposited into your paypal account. If you choose the paypal deposit you will get a small bonus on your total cash back.

This is a great way to give your used books a new life and make some money off them!

Amazon deal on 7th Generation diapers!

There is a pretty good deal on 7th generation diapers going on right now on amazon. These diapers are chlorine free and are a tad bit more eco friendly than traditional disposable diapers. The 140 count of size 3 diapers will cost $39.99 (regularly $51.99). Plus, if you sign up for subscribe and save you will save an additional 15% bringing the price to $33.99 which equals just over .24 each. (All sizes except newborn are the same price). If you sign up for subscribe and save don't forget to cancel as soon as you receive your shipment. It really isn't a hassle to cancel - I sign up and cancel all the time! Free shipping is also available on these diapers. If you haven't already signed up for Amazon express checkout with your personal PayPhrase you should check it out! It's a super easy way to earn some cash back on your amazon purchases! This is a great chance to stock up on some diapers that aren't on sale very often. You may know that amazon deals and sales can come and go quickly. I would grab this sale while it's available.

FREE Bare Escentuals foundation coupon!

I LOVE Bare Escentuals BareMinerals makeup! It's a great lightweight makeup that offers awesome coverage and is fairly natural! Right now you can score a FREE sample (10 day supply) of the BareMinerals foundation and a baby buffering brush with this coupon. This offer is available through your Sephora counter inside your local JCPenney. Not all JCPenney's have a Sephora counter so check with your store before you head over. Limit one sample per person, per coupon, while supplies last. I'm super bummed that my JCPenney store doesn't have a Sephora counter so I can't take advantage of this offer.

Eco-friendly diaper bag sale! (Including Fluerville!!)

Check out the online store Leather and Bags for some great deals on eco-friendly diaper bags (including dad bags)!

Pictured above is the bag I am drooling over! It's the popular and coveted Fluerville re-run messenger diaper bag in the Ogo print. Each re-run bag is made out of recycled plastic bottle fabric. The re-run messenger bag keeps 10 plastic bottles out of the landfill. This bag retails for $105 but is available on Leather and Bags for $79.95 and you can use coupon code FF30 to take an additional 30% off. That will bring this bag down to $55.97! Plus, for a limited time there is FREE shipping on all orders! There are a number of Fluerville bags available. The Lexie Tote in the Loveknots print (available in both pink and blue) retails for $190 but is on sale for $122 and with the coupon code (listed above) it can be yours for $85.40 That is over 50% off! All Fluerville bags are made from PVC-free Green-LAM (and as stated above, the re-run bags are made out of recycled materials).

Check out the Amy Michelle EcoBaby Diaper Baby Tote. The green lining in this bag is made out of recycled materials. This bag retails for $90 but is available on Leather and Bags for $75 and with coupon code FF30 you can grab this bag for $52.50!

Let's not forget the dads! The DadGear backpack Diaper bag is also listed in the eco-friendly section. This bag retails for $110 but is sold on Leather and Bags for $89 and with the coupon FF30 (for an additional 30% off) this bag comes to $62.30! Although, to be honest with you, I'm not really sure what makes this bag eco-friendly. I couldn't find anything on the Leather and Bags site or the manufacturer site stating how it qualifies.

Don't forget there is FREE shipping on all orders!

(Disclaimer - I have never ordered from Leather and Bags so I can't comment on their customer service).
Check it out and let us know if you grab yourself a great diaper bag!
