What: Mooncup UK (the original Mooncup, btw)
Where and How Much: Mooncup.co.uk; $38 USD, 18.99 GBP
Grade: A+
Why: The Mooncup UK is a reusable menstrual cup, so you buy it once and won't have to buy menstrual products for maybe 10 years.. so the $40 investment is relatively nothing. After reading reviews online, I chose the Mooncup UK for it's better shape and size to the alternatives, as well as it's medical grade silicone. I fully recommend it. I absolutely adore my cup, and it helped me to make the transition from my quarterly periods on birth control back to monthly periods without it.

What: Earth Balance spread

What: Nature's Gate Herbal Balancing Shampoo and Conditioner for All Hair Types
Where and How Much: I got them for somewhere between $4 and $7, I think it was about $6, at Meijers, which is my local grocery (like Wal-mart).
Grade: A
Why: It's only an A and not an A+ because the condition leaves a bar soap feeling on my hands, and I hate that. After using the Aubrey's Organic for all hair types (had milk protein so I discontinued use), my hair was left a little dry. Since using Nature's Gate Shampoo & Conditioner and my hair is softer, shiny, and smells oddly of cloves (which I like). I think this may very well be the shampoo for me.

What: Nayasoya's Nayonaise
How much & Where: I got this from my local Meijers, which is just your standard grocery store (comparable to Wal-Mart without being a giant, evil corporation) for $2.99 a jar.
Grade: D+
Why: For starters, I hate Miracle Whip. I always ate Hellman's REAL mayonnaise, so maybe this is where my problem stems from. I absolutely hate the taste of Miracle Whip, and to me, that is exactly what Nayonaise tastes like. Boo. What a disappoint for me and my three bucks. If you don't mind the taste of Miracle Whip, then you'll probably love this crap, as it spreads on bread all nice-like, just like you'd expect. Sooo, if anyone from my area wants a barely used jar of Nayonaise, comment?

Herbivore Clothing

What: Herbivoreclothing.com
Grade: A+
Why: Herbivore Clothing is not only ran by an independent store, but it's also the best place to get Herbivore Magazine (noticing the connection?). I placed an order with Herbivore Clothing and got the order two days later. Items were exactly what I expected, and I am extremely satisfied with the down-to-earth, personal, friendly customer service. I will shop with them again (especially because now I love the magazine!).
