If you haven’t had your fill of Cool Mom Picks for the day…

We’ve been so busy lately doling out shopping wit and wisdom for various websites that we almost forgot to tell you all about them!


*At PBS Sprout for Parents we’re offering up shopping tips for parents of preschoolers each month. This month fo back-to-school time you’ll find our picks for eco-conscious pencils and one of our favorite kids backpacks.


*Our sponsor, JC Penney’s Linden Street, has started a very cool Home Style Guide featuring posts on design from an impressive array of bloggers: Maggie Mason of Mighty Goods, Jean Aw of NotCot, Nathalie Zee Drieu of Craftzine, Asha of Parenthacks, Heather Armstrong of Dooce, and Ree of The Pioneer Woman. Plus us! Click over to see why Kristen loves decorating with wall decals and how Liz finally decorated her daughter’s nursery.

*Another sponsor, Luvs, has created The MomSpeak, a site with tips on parenting from some very smart bloggers. We’ve contributed a Not–So-Frugal Mama’s Guide to Frugality, and an upcoming piece on getting your kids to do chores. But we also love Asha from Parenthacks’ tips on getting top resale dollar for your kids’ outgrown clothes, and the smart suggestions from Stacey Boyd of The SavvySource about planning a summer “staycation” at home, along with good working mom advice from Amy Keroes of Mommytrack’d.

Comments are open on all these sites, mama. If you’ve got your own ideas, click over and spill it.
