How to get Book of the Month for $5

Disclosure: Post contains affiliate links; opinions shared are mine.

I’m lucky to work with lifelong learners.  My friends at work love to read, and we are always sharing books.  While some of the girls prefer audiobooks, I’m still fond of the paper versions.   If you’ve been reading my blog for any length of time, you’re probably aware of my love for subscription boxes.  That’s why I’ve decided to gift myself the Book of the Month membership!  Through Oct. 31, use code BOTM5 on your new subscription to get the first month for just $5.  Or if you prefer, you could use code 30TOTE for 30% off 3 months plus get a free book tote.  I chose the 3 month discount, which was a bigger savings overall for a 3 month plan.

Do’s and don’ts of Amwell telemedicine #momsloveamwell #ad

Disclosure: This is a sponsored conversation from Mums the Word Network and Amwell. All opinions are my own.

Over the summer, my daughter shared her knock-down-drag-out virus with me.  One minute I was fine, but sometime after lunch the illness hit me full force.  I spent the entire weekend in bed, not able to sleep because of the all-over body aches.  There was no way that my aching body was going to make it  to the doctor’s office! Thanks to  Amwell,  I was able to get some comfort from a healthcare provider without even leaving my house.   #momsloveamwell #ad - get your visit for less!

Communication issues with a tween are tough enough. Add the cell phone battle, and you might as well wave a white flag.  With the many after school activities and weekend sleepovers that take place, a cell phone for my daughter became a necessity.  She had a small “emergency” phone but it didn’t work well, so she never used it.  It was definitely time to upgrade.  We didn’t want to let a bad cell phone connection to keep her from being able to contact us if there was an emergency.  When she asked me if she could have an iPhone from Verizon — just like mine — I said YES.  Since I’d initially opened my new customer account online, I knew that the site was reliable and user-friendly.  I was really surprised at how easy (and quick!) the online ordering process was.   Lucky for us, Verizon made it super easy and affordable to add another line.  My daughter inherited my gently loved smartphone, and I got to purchase a new iPhone 6.   Through 2/29, new customers can receive up to $50 off select smartphones with coupon code COUPONVZW.  Take a look at all the options!

Holiday gifts from Onecklace have a personalized touch + discount code

We’re determined to commit to simplicity in our new, smaller home. That means reducing the amount of “stuff” we accumulate. We purged closets and toy boxes before and after the big move, and I’m not anxious to fill it all back up again with generic Christmas gifts. This year we’re continuing our tradition of giving our kids 4 gifts each. The gifts are based on a cute rhyme a friend shared with me:
Something You Wear
Something You Read
Something You Want
Something You Read

It’s really tough to find something for my daughter to “wear” that she would pick out herself. She’s old enough to care about style, and has personal tastes that I can’t begin to replicate. She’s been asking for a pretty necklace that she can wear on a regular basis. When Onecklace contacted me about trying some of their products, I knew they would have just the right piece for my daughter. Appropriate and unique, the sterling silver butterfly pendant with name necklace is a gorgeous gift.

Verified Codes makes it easy to go paper free. #ad
Online shopping is a big part of today’s consumer world.  With credit card bonus points, virtual clearance sections, and expedited shipping, it’s often more convenient for my family to shop online rather than make a trip to a brick and mortar store.  There’s also the savings issue.  Although paper coupons exist for online shops, it’s a hassle to keep up with those coupons and codes. Online codes are easier to use because they’re no-clip, quick, and easy. I’m always interested in saving time and money. Verified Codes makes it simple to get BIG savings with a couple of clicks! [Read more…]
