The First Years Take and Toss Sippy Cups
Oh. My. Goodness. Before finding these, I was so sick of spending money on sippy cups that leaked, easily harvested mold, or were just a pain in the bootay to clean! Then one day I noticed these on a shelf at my grocery store. Four plastic cups with lids (and one awesome cap to prevent leaks) for under $4. Best of all, if one gets so worn that I have to toss it or if we leave it at a friends house/doctors office/etc its no big deal! I was afraid they would be flimsy but they hold up pretty well (and my future athlete has a habit of throwing his sippies.) They have been my son's everyday cups for awhile now and I haven't had to throw one out yet. Definitely worth the $4 and leap (ok, maybe baby step) of faith. They also come in an assortment of Disney Character Designs (which usually run $1 more than the plain design) which make them just that much more fun!
Stride Rite Made 2 Play
Best shoes ever! Especially if you have an active child. ...And live in an area where mud seems to be prevalent. Ok, let me back up and explain why I love these shoes. They are machine washable. Yep. No more tediously wiping down incredibly filthy shoes (while thinking "What IS that?!") Just throw them in the wash. I also throw mine in the dryer on medium heat and they come out looking brand new. These are now the ONLY shoes I buy for my son. Not only is Stride Rite a trusted brand but they have an AWESOME rewards program. I get discount coupons after every purchase, emails about sales and additional discounts, free shipping, and $10 credits for every $75 spent. AND on top of that the Made 2 Play line saves me so much time and hassle. And I never have to worry about my son getting "too dirty" while playing again.
