Here are two movies for $5 each that might be fun to grab for the kiddos.  You might tuck these away for Easter baskets or rainy days.

I know many of you might have children that have been learning about Dr. Seuss at school with his recent birthday. That one especially might be fun to grab.

Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 List for 2015

03/03/2015. This post may contain affiliate links. Read my Disclosure Policy.

dirty-dozen

The new Dirty Dozen and Clean 15 Lists have been released for 2015.  It is such a handy guide to know where to invest the extra bucks into organic produce.  I buy a lot of organic but it can often be a lot more expensive then conventional so this list is a a great resource when you are budgeting or just having a hard time finding everything you need on your list in organic.

This is a list of produce items that tend to have the highest levels of pesticide residue (even after being washed and peeled). So if you are interested in organics, these products are the ones that you want to focus on (in order of importance).

Here is the Dirty Dozen- this is where you want to spend the extra money on organic produce whenever possible:

  1. Apples
  2. Celery
  3. Cherry Tomatoes
  4. Cucumbers
  5. Grapes
  6. Nectarines
  7. Peaches
  8. Potatoes
  9. Snap Peas
  10. Spinach
  11. Strawberries
  12. Sweet Bell Peppers

And there is also a Dirty Dozen Plus- these items are not on the Dirty Dozen list but still something to try to find in organic if you can:

  1. Hot Peppers
  2. Kale/Collared Greens

And here is the Clean 15 list for 2015.  These are the items with the least amount of pesticide contamination found -so these are not as high of a priority when buying organic.

  1. Asparagus
  2. Avocados
  3. Cabbage
  4. Cantaloupe
  5. Cauliflower
  6. Eggplant
  7. Grapefruit
  8. Kiwi
  9. Mangoes
  10. Onions
  11. Papayas
  12. Pineapples
  13. Sweet Corn
  14. Sweet Peas (frozen)
  15. Sweet Potatoes

You can see more research and data from the Environmental Working Group here.

I was not buying organic cucumbers for the longest time since we usually peel them but lately the cucumbers I have been buying have had a strange taste to them.  A metallic flavor and I immediately switched to organic and have had much better tasting produce.

And if you do buy conventional produce, here is a simple DIY produce spray you can make yourself:

Washing the strawberries in a sieve

And here is an awesome resource to find out what fresh fruits and veggies are in season by moth:

Custom Wooden Monogram $17 Shipped

monogram

There is a fantastic sale on these custom wooden monograms today.  You can order one for only $9.99 plus $6.99 for shipping fees.

They are almost 15 inches so perfect for the front door. You can attach a pretty bow or I have seen some people put these on wreaths. So pretty!

Each set comes unfinished so you can paint them or put whatever finish you prefer. Just change the bow with the seasons and you have an easy way to decorate.  These are also very pretty used on the wall.

wall1

I have seen these at Pottery Barn Kids but the price tag is much higher at $100! They are a little larger but what a hefty price! This is a nice way to grab a comparable look for a much cheaper price.

Click here to take a look at Groopdealz.
