If your child uses a dummy then these are an absolute must have, I lost track of the amount of times my son would drop his dummy on the floor when he had one and which meant I had to carry several dummies around at a time so that he always got a clean one so this product would have been super useful to me.
Simply pour cold water upto the fill line and add one Milton Mini Sterilising Tablet. Insert the soother teat into the hole in the top sponge, press the soother down and twist to clean the teat. Replace the watertight lid and after 15 minutes the soother is sterilised and ready to use straight away with no need to rinse.

The Mini is 100% watertight, cleans and sterilisers soothers everywhere and is BPA free. Along with the new pearly grey colour, the Mini comes in three other existing colours (purple, blue and green).

Things to think about before renovating your garden

For homeowners who wish to renovate their garden area, where do you begin? What floral arrangements, outdoor furniture, and decor should you go with? Before you simply get started without a plan, consider these factors to ensure you create the ideal outdoor space for your home.

Have a plan -
Don't simply start buying flowers, trees, new furniture, and other items. Instead, lay out a plan. Consider the colours of flowers, the furnishings you want to buy for the space, the arrangements which will grow well. All of this will give you a better idea as to the final look of the space, and also allows you to set a budget for renovating the area. 

Consider hiring professionals -
Yes, they tend to charge fees for work they perform; with this in mind, the right service team will work with you and the set budget you have. Not only will they provide you with several options, they are properly going to plant new flowers, lay out the garden area, choose the right furnishings, and create a calm, tranquil area you can enjoy any time of the year. If you would like to find a gardener there are loads of sites you can visit to find a good local gardener.

Know what you want -
For some, you simply want lavish, luxurious outdoor furnishings regardless of cost. Others are going to be looking for items which match the siding of the home, floral arrangement, and colours of the space. Yet others are looking for the cheapest options, while still having a warm, inviting space. Make sure you know what you want, and begin from there when coming up with the layout for the space you are creating.

When it comes to your garden area, knowing what to look for, and where to begin, will allow you to easily create the perfect outdoor retreat. These are a few simple things to consider, before you simply get started with a huge renovation job you wish to tackle.

How to save money on children's outdoor equipment this summer

When shopping for equipment for your kids to use when camping, going to outdoor events, or otherwise having a great time outdoors, these items are typically quite costly. Whether it is a new tent, new hiking shoes, or other accessories, there are ways in which you can go about saving on the cost. These are a few options to save, while finding all the summer equipment they need.

Consider second hand - 
Hand me downs, trading items with friends, or using items your other children have used in years past, is a simple solution to avoid having to purchase these items brand new. You can even find local retailers which sell second hand items, many in "like new" condition, which are far cheaper than brand new. If you would like to have a look at some outdoor equipment for this summer then there are loads of sites which can help you. One example of a site which can help you find a good price on the product you are looking for is Secondwow.

Shopping around - 
Visiting various outdoor shops, camping supply shops, and sporting goods retailers, allows you to find the best deal on all equipment you are going to buy. Yes, it does require a certain degree of patience; but, those who are willing to visit a few stores prior to purchase, are going to save. 

Shop online - 
Another viable way to save is to buy online. More and more retailers are offering products online, further, you can buy from local sellers online as well. Typically, great mark downs and price reductions can be found on these items, allowing you to truly save on the cost of outdoor equipment. 

Off brand - 
Consider going with "off brand" or un-branded items. In many instances, you can find products for half the price, or even greater discounts on such items. And, many of these products are the same quality, simply lacking the popular brand name logo, meaning you will save. 

You will find many items your kids require to be costly; however, these are a few simple ways to save when shopping for the summer equipment they need this year.

Make the Most out of Children's Catalogues

If you want to spread the cost of children's toys, books, and games, shopping with a UK catalogue provides you with heaps of benefits. First up, you can have your purchases delivered direct to your door, saving you time and hassle. Plus, you can choose from thousands of items all in one place, including the latest electronics and gadgets, so you don't have to spend hours on your local high street. Here are some other tips on how to make the most out of children's catalogues.

1. Watch out for interest

The children's catalogue you choose will likely come down to interest rates. As different retailers charge different levels of interest, it's a good idea to compare different brands before you open a credit account. A price comparison website is a great place to glance at different rates in one place, so you can spot the catalogue that's right for you. Some catalogues that have children's clothes, like Very, won't charge you any interest if you pay for your items in full by a certain date.

 2. Consider the cost of returns

 As a parent, you know that children can be fussy at times, especially when it comes to clothes and shoes. If you order from a catalogue, most brands, like Marisota and Next, will let your child try on his or her clothes for size. If you're not completely satisfied, you can send them back to the retailer. This all sounds pretty straightforward, but some companies charge you more to return an item than others, so always do your research before you open a credit account.

 3. Use a voucher code

 A voucher code could entitle you to money off your order or free delivery, providing you with a significant saving. You'll likely have to enter your code when paying for your items over the phone or online, and this can be a great way to save cash on children's clothes and toys!
