Money Saving Moms Blog Reviews a Womentorz Top Pick in 2009 Holiday Gift Guide

Frugal moms looking to support creative women with clever products loved the baby-by-the-month stickers we shared with them. They wrote: "Each Missy Fissy Clothing Sticker is 4" in diameter and is made of transparent sticky paper. When it is applied it LOOKS like it is part of the T-shirt. Each month on your child's "monthday birthday" simply stick the clothing sticker to your baby’s shirt or onesie. Take a picture to capture each stage and be amazed at how much your little one changes. Picky Sticky's are excellent for sharing photos with friends and family on blogs or facebook. At the end of the year you will have a great collection of photos to make unique birthday invitations or great holiday cards. Picky Stickys make shower gifts for the new mom!

These stickers are so cute. They are bright and colorful. Have you ever gone back to a picture and not known how old your baby was in it? I sometimes forget to date the picture. So when I go back to look at it, I'm not sure. Place a Picky Sticky sticker on your baby's bib and click the picture. You can leave it on or just one of the pictures. Its such a great idea. You will be glad you bought them. They make a great gift just make sure you buy a second set for you."

New York, San Antonio, Seattle and Beyond: Better Because is Moving a Mountain of Discouragement

The good for you Better Because movement takes flight.

Inspired by the Dalai Lama, in the middle of a recession two pals, moms, and self proclaimed "rat racers", Ginny Hutchinson and Cathy Haffner jumped from their Fortune 100 careers to launch Better Because. In no time flat 4,300+ new folks have friended them on Facebook and sent in smiles and stories from around the globe of what their life is "better because of" today. Nordstrom has snapped-up the duo's book, "Better Because of You", and will carry it for the holidays. Proceeds from book sales support "Room to Read", a great non-profit that builds libraries for children in need in Asia and Africa.

In NYC, cosmetic genius Trish McEvoy ordered 50 books to give to her friends. In Seattle, Union Bank Mortgage Consultant Aaron Tyler purchased 32 books for each of his co-workers and couldn't believe the
response-- just the cover put a smile on their faces.

Folks with the flu have read it to their families, those recovering from heart surgery have shared the book as a thank you to friends who visited them at the hospital, while others have turned to the book for ways to comfort grief stricken family dealing with tragedy. Powerful stuff here.

Featured yesterday on KIRO's CEO Spotlight, Cathy and Ginny talked how wonderfully rewarding it is to help others in these tough times.

In San Antonio recently, they shared their "attitude of gratitude" and simple ways to focus on the little things that make life better.

"Trying to start a movement is one of the toughest things in the world, but two women hope to move a mountain of discouragement by getting people to find what's good in life."
