Get $10 off plus free shipping at Vitacost online grocery store

I recently learned about Vitacost from a healthy friend of mine. It’s an online grocery store that specializes in healthy living. When you sign up for a free Vitacost account you will get a $10 credit to spend on your first order, plus, today (2/22) only you’ll get free shipping on orders of $22 or more! If your order is less than $22 you’ll pay $2.22 shipping. (Enough 2s for you?)

Here’s what I bought when I placed my order: coconut oil and digestive enzymes, both Vitacost brand. Wild and crazy, huh?

But seriously, I was really impressed with both items and based on these I would recommend Vitacost. Check it out and make sure you place your order while you can combine the free $10 credit with the free shipping deal.

Right now some of the sales at Vitacost include 15 % off select gluten-free items and 10% off select heart-healthy items. There are lots of other promo codes and deals; once you’ve registered for a Vitacost account, scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the link that says “Coupons and Discounts” under “Ways to Shop.”

Dr. Seuss’s birthday is March 3, and Read Across America Day is March 2, for which the official book is Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax. Here are a few free things to do with your kids to celebrate:

Most Target stores nationwide will have a Dr. Seuss storytime on Saturday February 25th, during which they’ll be offering a live reading of The Lorax. (If you don’t own The Lorax, it’ 40% off on Amazon right now!) The celebration will include free goody bags, fun activities and more. You can find a Target store here.

If your school is having Dr. Seuss Day, consider making these adorable Truffula Tree and Brown Bar-ba-loot cake pops. Thanks, Birmingham Bargain Mom!

The Blount County Public Library will have Seuss Day on Saturday March 3 with activities in the Children’s Department from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. There will be crafts, readings, and a performance of Seussical The Musical by the William Blount theater department.

Finally, for crafts to do at home, check out the Dr. Seuss unit from my friends at 2 Teaching Mommies plus all the fun info available at obSEUSSed!

Save the Date: Maryville Christian School Consignment Sale will be March 24

Maryville Christian School will have its Spring Consignment Sale on Saturday March 24. This is different than some of the others in town in that it’s not just a children’s consignment sale. They have items for kids and adults, including home decor, which I love. I found a really pretty crystal chandelier at this sale one year. You don’t have to have a  child at MCS to consign, either. If you’d like to participate as a consignor (and shop a day early) contact mcsconsignmentsale at
