Treasure Hunting

A few of my recent discoveries–

Green Bags:  Ingles has these great cloth grocery bags available for .98 each!  I’ve been searching for eco-bags that match (yes, I’m vain) and are inexpensive.  I was able to bag all my groceries in four bags and carry all my groceries into the house in one trip.  I’ve used them at three stores now and gotten compliments each time.  Now that is worth .98! 

Laptop Lunches:  I have so much fun serving food bento-style to Norah and this bento lunchbox was impossible to resist.  Two side notes–I found mine for a great price on ebay and they are made in China.

Ideal Family Health:  A friend sent me a link to this new medical office in Anderson.  It is too far for us to drive but I’m intrigued by the concept.  There are only two staff–a doctor and a nurse.  There is supposedly no waiting.  They do not take insurance but list their fees on their website.  They make housecalls if needed.  It is a perfect option for those without insurance or with catastrophic insurance only.      

Locally Grown:  I haven’t tried this service yet but here’s the scoop:  You place an order for produce, products, meat from local farms and it is delivered on Thursdays to West End Coffee Company.  The list of items available is pretty impressive. 

Earth Lines:  Poems for the Green Age:  I found this little book at Goodwill for .25.  It is pretty “in your face.”  No wispy imagery or metaphor.  Want a sample?  Here is one called “Men of Clay”
      If Adam was shaped from earth’s rough clay

     What creature would God make

     From the poisoned and eroded soil

     That we’ve left in our wake?

Yeah.  You should read the one about what is in a quarter-pounder or the one about how to make a fur hat.  I probably won’t read it to Norah as a bedtime story just yet.

  1. gee whiz… lady, i’ve been checking and checking waiting for you to post some scoop. finally! 😉
    love the box!
    spent a little time with the doctor’s page… intrigued, but trying to ignore his link to http://www.quackwatch.org — that guy is a LOSER, though his letters section is some of the most entertaining misery on the internet.

    Yeah, I saw the quackwatch link, too. Still…since the guy doesn’t vax kiddos, that is one less controversial conversation.

    Um, who is calling the kettle black when it comes to blogging?

    Abigail is three, and doesn’t go to school, but I love serving her lunch in her bento lunch box, too! Do you ever look at http://www.veganlunchbox.com/ ??

  5. One more thing… I am dying to try West End Coffee House!! I can’t believe it’s in G’ville… it looks so “crunchy”!

    We were part of a co-op like this in State College, PA, and I would pick up my locally grown, seasonal veggies & fruit at the church. I miss it.

    Rachel–we’re destined to be friends–I have indeed frequented the vegan lunchbox!

    There is also a CSA in Clemson. During the growing season, the cost is 15-25 dollars/week and produce is picked up at the organic learning lab on campus.
