What Stores Accept Plastic Bags Back for Recycling?

Am I the only one who has a giant stockpile of plastic bags? I have so many bags from Target, Meijer, Walmart, etc. I hate to throw them in the garbage, but I don't know what to do with them. Does anyone know who takes back the plastic bags? I shop in Crystal Lake and Algonquin. Thanks.

Food Allergy Meal Ideas

We recently found out that our 6 year old son is allergic to dairy, eggs, peanuts, and chocolate. We have found some substitutions. For peanut butter we use sun butter, we bought rice milk, Ener-G egg replacer, etc. I found a great cookbook that had awesome breakfast and dinner ideas, but the lunch ideas were a little too gourmet for a picky 6 year old. I am having a difficult time with lunch ideas for him since our standards were grilled cheese, pizza, and mac and cheese. I don't want to feed him the same things over and over and have...

Where Can I Buy Girl's Princess Dresses?

I'd like to buy a few princess-type dresses and accessories (Disney and non-Disney) for my 3 year old girl to play dress-up in. Where can I find some that's relatively inexpensive, new or gently used, in-store or online, size 5-6. I'd like to spend around $10 per dress. I don't want to spend an arm and a leg since it'll only be for play. Thanks!!

Need Recommendations for Best Toy Organization System!

I am going to go out and buy something to organize the piles of toys we have accumulated in our house over the last 4 years - after a good "purge" of course. The Christmas influx has now completely overloaded the plastic bins we already have to hold our 50 million match box cars, art supplies, etc. so I am looking for something that can maybe go vertical. I have seen some systems at Costco and Ikea that look reasonable, but not sure which is best. Any recommendations would be appreciated!

Help with Book Club Dinner

Hi ladies. I am hosting a book club dinner at my house next week. I am stumped on what to serve. It is during the week so it has to be something easy. Usually it is something light and something sweet. We are reading and discussing Twilight. I was hoping to go with a theme that coincides with the book. I know there are some really creative women out there who may have some great ideas! HELP!!! This is my first time hosting and am hoping to make a good impression on my new friends.

Seeking People to Scrapbook With

Hi! I live out east close to Reynoldsburg. I really enjoy scrapbooking and am looking for some ladies to come scrapbook with me. I usually scrapbook Thursday evenings around 8:00 PM after my children have gone to bed. I work at home doing childcare during the day, so I am around children all day - which I love - but I would love to have more adult conversations. I am sure that anyone who stays at home with children understands. Please let me know if you would like to come.
