I'm a computer dummy!

I need help. If anyone knows the code to put a collapsable blogroll on my sidebar, like blogging chicks and Over 50, please tell me how to do it. Thanks so very much!

Find of the Day!!

I found this great resale shop called Honey Bear's Closet .

Children's gently worn name brand clothing at great prices.
Children grow overnight and keeping them in nice clothes can cost a small fortune.
Honey Bear's Closet is here to help.

They carry name brand children's clothing at garage sale prices. We have names like Gymboree, Baby Gap, Old Navy, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger, and more.

All clothes are in great condition so you can buy with confidence. If the item has a small flaw like a missing button it is clearly noted.
What you won't find is old, torn, stained, or out of style clothes. Ifthey won't let my children wear it--they won't sell it.

They carry sizes from NB to 16 in both boys and girls clothing. We also have maternity clothes as well as Junior Girls 0-18.
