How Can Weighted Blankets Help Your Sleep?

Weighted blankets are blankets that range from 4 to 30 pounds. They are this heavy because of many stitched pockets of polypropylene pellets – the same pellets used for small bean bags and plush toys.

We go through bread like crazy with five kiddos in the house so I always like to stock up a little when our favorite brand goes on sale. Three of these are already in the freezer but they won’t last long in there, hopefully at least until the next sale though.

Freezer Cooking 101: Breakfast Sandwich Edition

Mornings are super busy around our house – after getting myself up and ready for work I have to herd cats, I mean wake my five kiddos and get them ready for school. By the time I drop them off at the bus stop and head on into the office a couple hours have passed and I’m hungry! The kids get breakfast at school so they’re set and I always have granola bars at my desk in case of emergency, but really I’d like a nice hot breakfast too without having to hit the drive through.
