Black Friday/Small Business Saturday 2014 Hours

EcoBuns will be CLOSED on Thanksgiving. We will also be closing early on Wednesday. We don't close often, but when we do it's with good reason.

EcoBuns is a family owned business. You've heard of Mom and Pop shops, this is a Mom and Daughters shop. Myself, along with my sister Meghan and our mom Vicki own and operate the store. That's it. Just the three of us. The three of us work at the store, unpack orders, ship orders out, update the website, balance the books, run the social media pages, create marketing material, clean the store, stay up to date on the latest and greatest products, and still manage our own family.

Typically, our family has always been flexible with our Thanksgiving schedule. We usually celebrate Thanksgiving on the weekend. That way we don't have to worry about arranging schedules and worrying about what time the inlaws are having their dinner.

This year is different. This year we started having Sunday hours at EcoBuns. We have loved to be able to offer this to our customers! However, this means that celebrating a large family gathering on a Sunday isn't going to be possible. This year, the Brancheau/Osterbaan/Berghorst family is celebrating Thanksgiving on Thanksgiving. Meghan is making a turkey at her house and hopefully sweet potato casserole (my personal favorite).

As more and more big box stores are opening up early to get in customers first, we have decided to make Thanksgiving truly a day of thanks. And boy oh boy do we have a lot to be thankful for!

THANK YOU. I cannot say it enough. Thank you from the bottoms of our hearts. We appreciate each and everyone of you.

So rest, enjoy your family, hold your babies. Celebrate all that there is to be thankful for. Take the day off. We will be ready for you Friday.

How Often To Change A Cloth Diaper

Babies go though a lot of diapers! When I was pregnant I was told that babies go through 12-16 diaper changes a day. At the time it didn't register to me that I would be changing diapers every 1.5 to 2 hours every day. Every single day. It doesn't matter if you are using cloth diapers or disposable diapers; you WILL be changing your baby's diaper. The average baby goes through 7,000 to 9,000 diaper changes from birth to potty training.
