‘This week Scotties are on BOGO sale at Publix, and we made sure to stock up. Someone is always sniffling around here, whether it is due to allergies or colds, and we need to have Scotties on hand. Just this morning, our youngest son yelled out ” I need tissues,” as he was running out the door to go to school. He grabbed a handful of Scotties to stuff in his pocket, and then he was on his way.
Scotties facial tissue makes it easy to have our boxes of facial tissue blend in around our home, so that there is always a box of Scotties within reach. Now that Christmas decorations are up, we’ve got the Scotties winter boxes blending in with the decor. But we’re also thrilled that we can still get our hands on our Scottie’s regular favorite designs that fit well with our beachy and coastal decor.
This year Christmas is going to be extra special here in the Frugality Is Free family, because we are celebrating Christmas in our own home. Over the summer we took a leap and moved to our favorite city, a coastal community in North Florida, where we can slow down and enjoy each other in safe surroundings. The kids still hold out hope that we’ve moved north enough to see snow, but with the temperatures alternating between 50 and 70 degrees, the only snow we’ll have around here is the snow on the Scotties winter designs.
The kids have all settled into our new community with ease, but with all the changes it is even more important than ever that we bring comfort into the holiday season. This is why we are holding on to our family traditions. We celebrate the holidays in a northern European way with the emphasis being on Christmas Eve, dancing around the Christmas tree and even opening gifts on Christmas Eve. We eat and bake, we cook, and we decorate, but we also do something a little different. We are an interracial, intercultural, international family, and because of that the the comfort of the holidays are also a way of bringing focus on accepting others and respecting other cultural traditions.
For many years we’ve been hosting holiday parties focusing on more than just our own Christian heritage, and we have joined hands with our Muslim and Jewish friends, as we’ve shared our cultural and religious traditions. This year more than ever, the holidays are about respecting each other’s differences. Now that we are far away from our friends down south, we are thrilled to be welcoming friends into our home for a long sleepover, and we are so excited to once again be sharing our traditions and learning about theirs.
In our family the holidays are also about protecting our planet and we try to enjoy the nature as much as possible. We’ve been out picking pine cones and collecting seashells for our decorations, and we take great pride in picking out our Christmas tree.
Scotties do the same, and that’s why we are proud to buy Scotties products. Scotties stand behind its tree planting promise to plant three trees for every one they use to produce Scotties products. This means that three seedlings will be planted in the spring and summer months for every one used to produce Scotties products the previous year.
Scotties have 3-ply, or 3-ply with aloe facial tissue for the extra strength you need, and we especially love the 3-ply facial tissue with aloe. With all of our allergies and colds, we go through a lot of facial tissues in our family, so it is important for us that we purchase products manufactured by companies focused on sustainability.
The J.D. Irving, Limited specialists have planted over 8850 million trees on owned and Crown land in Canada and the company has developed and follows guidelines for sustainable forest management, including measures to protect water quality, biodiversity, wildlife habitat, species at risk and forest with exceptional conservation value. J.D. Irving, Limited has over 20 percent of its forest dedicated as conservation habitats.
