Moms with Girls, Beware.

I’m sure you’ve heard of the “pink tax”, where women pay more than men for certain services and products. Particularly annoying examples are dry cleaning and razor blades. Sure, you can buy men’s razors instead, (and I do), but this doesn’t exactly correct the problem.  However I didn’t realize how early the pink tax actually starts, until I was perusing Amazon for sippy cups earlier this evening.

Homemade Marshmallows

Homemade marshmallows are the easiest and most affordable edible gift.  Package them in a mug with hot cocoa mix, and you’ve got the perfect (i.e. cheap) gift for someone that you don’t care enough about to give a real present.
