Save On Shipping @ Nature’s Sunshine


Recently I have sent out e-cards and facebook updates to let every one know I am once again selling and using Nature’s Sunshine Products.  I have been exposed to and/or used these since high school as my dear friend’s mom, Anita Fryzel, has sold them  and used for 30+ years.  She is 78 so that must say something for the quality of the products sold. Smile

I want to post this as a tutorial of how to save on shipping.  Upon ordering my first order I mentioned to Dena, Anita’s daughter, that I found it odd that there was no cheaper shipping than 7.50.  UPS and USPS were the same.  She said “we only pay $4 for shipping.”  She proceeded to show me how to save on shipping my next order.

Once you have placed items in your cart @ you can click the link below the shipping drop down box that says VIEW OTHER SHIPPING METHODS.

You will then get the option for MAIL INNOVATIONS for only $4.00.  This may take a day or so longer but if you are in no hurry saving $3.50 on shipping is well worth it!

To answer another question:  JOINING NATURE’S SUNSHINE WHY WOULD I WANT TO?  Will be answered in a separate post.

Have a great day!Smile

Sharing a Favorite Blog: Copperswife


I have followed this blog for years now.  So many I’ve lost track.  When I first started blogging in 2003 I started blogging at  That is where I found Copperswife aka Cheryl Linebarger.

Just from reading her blog all these years I have learned that she is a very faithful woman and that her family is truly blessed to have her.  She recently moved her blog to it’s own site and I immediately subscribed so her posts will come to my email and I won’t miss a thing. 

Today’s post and many to follow will help teach people how to menu plan and the benefits.  I love menu planning and have “fallen off the wagon” so to speak.  When I was working full time I had a plan made out a whole month in advance.  This was a great help to the whole family as our teens could see what was there and get a head start and if hubby was home before me he could get dinner started.  Now that it’s just me, hubby and our two year old I’ve gotten bad about having my plan in my head and not writing it down.  This leads to failure as my head doesn’t keep information like it used to. 

Needless to say I am looking forward to her series.  Maybe I’ll learn something that will help me get back up on the wagon.

Check out her first post in the series here:  Meal Planning Intro

You can also follow her blog via Facebook HERE so you are sure not to miss a post.  I am following her on Facebook too just in case my email has issues, one can never be too careful when it comes to a favorite blog!

She gives great information on housekeeping, recipes, recommends great books to read.  Head over to her blog and enjoy!  Thanks Cheryl for years of enjoyable, wonderful posts.  Thanks for all the great photographs and for sharing your family and life with everyone.  You truly are an inspiration to many.

P.S.  Her daughters also blog and yes I follow them too.  You’ll find links on Cheryl's site and throughout her posts to great stories from her daughters. My favorite from one daughter are  her posts on their annual Peep Wars.  You HAVE to check those out on her site Peep Wars 2010 Post

Gone Far Too Long

Why did I ever get away from my blog? Oh yeah... life. My "baby" will be 9 next week.  My husband has faced kidney failure and...
