Ok, I've been meaning to post both of these things for awhile now. Someone asked in my introduction post what Boden is. Boden is my VERY favorite clothing company. Here's a link to their website: Boden
Their clothes are fabulously made and just a little bit different from what you see everywhere else. I am especially a huge fan of their little boys clothing (and dresses for myself). My son is definitely out of the gymboree phase and I have had a hard time finding things for him the last year or so. They also resell for a fabulous price on ebay (I ebay most of my kids' clothes, therefore justifying the insane amount of money I spend on them).
Boden is an English company so if you do order from them, make sure you pay attention to their sizing since it is different from US sizing. Best of all, they are almost always running some kind of promotion. The best time to buy is during their sneak peek sales that they do about 3 times a year - it's usually a preseason sale and 25% off everything plus free shipping and returns. This is when I do 90% of my ordering. Right now their promotion is 10% off plus free shipping and returns - you have to get the offer through email so email me at email@example.com if you want the email.
ALSO, I just have to post about the cheap, cheap long distance. We have been using Big Red Wire for about 4 years now. The rate is 2.6 cents a minute in the U.S. and 3.9 cents to call Canada (I checked for you Angie). You sign up on their website and they bill your credit card. I usually spend less than $15 per month for all the long distance I use (I use a lot because I don't live near my family). Anyway, I'm always on the lookout for ways to cut costs on my budget so I though I would pass this along to all of you!
