Best Price Nutrition Review Part DEUX

Earlier this week I reviewed WHOLEmega Fish Oil from  I also had the opportunity with my family to review four additional supplements: New Chapter Zyflamend, New Chapter Bone Strength Take Care, Gaspari Nutrition Spirodex and Gaspari Nutrition RX-6.

Hopefully my experiences will help those of you who have hesitated with using supplements or wondered about benefits and possible side effects, like me.  Please, always consult with your personal medical professional before starting any new supplemental regimen and remember that everyone is different and may react differently than my experiences.

New Chapter Zyflamend
Zyflamend is supposed to help with inflammation and joint pain.  I was curious to see if this would have any effect on my husband's problems with his back.  Honestly, we didn't notice any difference on our joints but this could very well be because we simply don't have the problems that would be helped by Zyflamend.   Happily, we didn't experience any troublesome side effects at all and that's great!  Please use these links to learn more about Zyflamend:

New Chapter Bone Strength Take Care

This is a calcium supplement to help strengthen bones and also contains other nutrient to help the calcium be better absorbed by the body.  We have been taking this with no side effects and it seems to be very easy on the digestive system.  Definitely a bonus there!  Bone Strength Take Care is made from whole food plant sources which in my mind results in a safe supplement.  To learn more, please use the links here:

Gaspari Nutrition Spirodex
Spirodex is a supplement marketed to improve mental clarity, enhance mood and give you energy with no side effects.  Indeed, it does seem to do just this.  My husband played guinea pig on this one and was quite happy with the results.  He did feel more energized and in a better mood.  He didn't experience any jittery or shaky side effects which sometimes does happen with this type of supplement.  It does also seem to suppress appetite which can be a happy thing for some people but my husband is already very thin and doesn't really need his appetite suppressed!  :)  All in all, we would recommend this if you're looking for an overall "boost" to your energy level and moods.  If you'd like to learn more about Spirodex, please visit the links below:

Gaspari Nutrition RX-6
RX-6 is marketed as an extremely powerful stimulant fat burner.  And wow, I would definitely say that stimulant is correct.  RX-6 has a lot of caffeine in it resulting in, for us, a lot of buzzing around!  I would not recommend this supplement if you dislike the "jitters" as this is exactly what we experienced.  However, if you're looking for a big, big boost to energy this could be the supplement for you.  Does anyone remember "Caffeine Man" from Mad TV?  Well....  :)  If you're curious and would like to learn more, click here:

Big thanks to for giving us samples to try.  This did, however, in no way affect my (our) opinions of the products and have given an honest review.

Sit-upon Tutorial By Rachel Beyer

As a former Girl Scout, I have lots of fun camp memories. I remember learning to tie knots, set up camp and to cook over the campfire. An essential Girl Scout tradition is making a sit-upon. A sit-upon is a homemade waterproof cushion. They are easy to make and I remember using them every time we did any activity while sitting on the bare ground, which most often was damp or scattered with uncomfortable sticks and pebbles. A sit-upon is great for sitting around the campfire, your backyard, or even a sporting event. 
There are lots of ways to make a sit-upon. When I was a Brownie Girl Scout, we made ours from old vinyl tablecloths and foam. But in a pinch, you can use a plastic garbage bag and a stack of old newspapers for padding.
To revisit this simple craft project, I decided to use a roll of vintage vinyl wallpaper I found at a thrift store and some foam I bought at my local craft store.

Boring Cash No More!!

Ahhhh! I just learned how to turn money into a really cool work of art!! Seriously, this is really cute and fun too. Foldin' Money can help you turn plain old cash into a really fun crafty gift! It's kind of like paper crafts with a real monetary value. Ha!

Foldin' Money has design kits to help you make the perfect gift for anyone on your list this year. Both US and Canadian currency directions are included in these design kits. For review, we received the "red" kit which has templates and step-by-step directions for a cake, tree, heart, and tie. We found the instructions to be very, very easy to follow. Ladies, I think even your husbands could fold money into the perfect gift! Did that sound rude? Sorry Fellas!

What we found really fun was the endless ways that you could possibly use the Foldin' Money designs. I thought it would be really fun to put one of those little strands of battery operated lights onto the folded money tree! What a fun gift idea and you …

#Halloween Spaghetti & Eyeballs for Sadie Hawkins {The Daily Chaos 10/14/2011}

This post must be written lightening fast because I must leave soon to pick up my daughter from the high school's Sadie Hawkins dance and ferry her and her date to their next destination. How's that for a long, stressful run-on sentence full of far too many prepositional phrases.

We had the distinct pain honor of hosting the dance dinner for 19 teenagers tonight. I don't know about you but I remember Sadie Hawkins as the dance where the guys always said no. Seriously, teenage boys can cut a teenage girl's confidence to shreds. Oh who am I kidding, grown men still do that. So we had dinner in the backyard complete with Halloween lights and a cauldron full of bubbling homemade root beer. My husband loves the homemade root beer and is always the dry ice master chef of the brew. At one point, he came in from outside all dejected because apparently the ladle had fallen into the cauldron and the kids had been trying to fish it out with their hands.... he didn't feel like …
