Pilot Pens and Target partnered – G2 Overachievers Club

Disclosure:  By some amazing stroke of luck, Pilot sent me these pens for review.  You can imagine my thrill!  Opinions shared are mine.

School supplies have always made my heart skip a beat. Some of you know exactly what I mean!  You’ll be happy to know that Pilot acknowledges this obsession with their amazing pens, and they’ve partnered with Target to create the G2 Overachievers Club.  So then, Pilot sent me these G2 pens.  People, I was happier than a bird with a french fry.  The thing is, my kids are just as enamored by pens as I am (maybe more….dare I say it?)  Naturally, those pens were whisked right out of my grasp.

#RecycleYourPeriodPad and get the house clean! $2 Printable coupon

Did you know that, for every 3 women, 1 of them is very likely to experience Light Bladder Leakage (LBL) at some point in her life? When Poise asked me to share this sponsored post with you, it reminded me that a great percentage of you probably suffer from LBL discomfort.  Here’s a printable coupon to save you a bit of money…. see if the Poise product works well for you!   LBL is a daunting threat from Mother Nature.  That woman may have had children, gained weight, or suffered from an illness that caused the onset of the LBL.  Chances are good that she also hides the problem from her friends, thinking that they won’t understand. Many of those women use period pads to manage LBL when they should be using Poise! Poise wants you to #RecycleYourPeriodPad and stay clean with their pads and liners.  [Read more…]

Creamy Blueberry Vinaigrette made with Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! #whipitup

Disclosure: I’m excited to bring you this post from Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! The thoughts and opinions shared are mine.

Remember that time when you opened the fridge and decided to eat the rest of that salad you made, only to find that you’re out of salad dressing? We’ve all been there. Next time I’m in the mood for a fresh take on salad, I’ll whip up this delicious, creamy vinaigrette using Yoplait Greek 100 Whips as the creamy base instead of buttermilk or mayonnaise. Sweet salad dressings appeal to me, but my regular poppyseed dressing has over 200 calories per 1-oz serving. Ouch! When I factor in the preservatives and other ambiguous ingredients, it’s also hard to tell what I’m actually eating.  When my daughter saw the Yoplait Greek 100 Whips in the store, she asked it we might be able to make homemade dressing with it.  I thought that was such a great idea!  Three ingredients and about one minute went into preparing this delicious Creamy Blueberry Vinaigrette. My kids loved dipping croutons in it; I preferred it with raw veggies and greens.  In fact, our homemade dressing was so simple and scrumptious, I may never buy prepackaged dressing again!  Ready to get started?  First, be sure to click here for this printable coupon to get $1 off the purchase of 5 Yoplait Greek 100 Whips!  [Read more…]

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.

Change your hydration expectation #drinkdripdrop

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post; I received complimentary product from SheSpeaks/DripDrop. Opinions shared here are 100% mine.

Last week was a busy time for our family! We passed around a stomach virus that never wanted to quit. It wasn’t pretty, folks. Meanwhile my daughter had a tonsillectomy, which means she needed to drink lots of liquids even when it hurt to swallow. She was quite a trooper! I must say that water was nearly the only thing we could all keep down at once. Whether you’re in a mild to moderate dehydration stage from illness, exercise, or just busy life, you can change your hydration expectation by supplementing with DripDrop.

Ways to spice up summer days

Disclosure: I received product samples. The opinions shared here are 100% mine.

I can’t believe it’s already mid-June. It seems like I was just saying that last year and here it is again! The first month of summer break flew by. The kids are starting to get sick of each other around this time. It’s time to spice up summer days with some new experiences, don’t you think?

We’ve been eating out a lot this week since the air conditioner was out. I just couldn’t bear to cook in the kitchen for any length of time because it was so daggone hot in here! I’ve posted before about the joys of Restaurant.com but this week we had a huge need for dining-out savings since we darkened the doors of many air-conditioned restaurants. [Read more…]

Free food! Surveys on receipts = great way to save on dining out

May is a busy month for our family.  All 4 of us are tied up with the end of school.  My husband and I are on the teacher side of things, while trying to make it to all the events taking place at our kids’ schools.  The evening practices, weekend activities, and other things we’re involved in don’t let up either.  As I cleaned out my purse a couple of days ago, it was a bit mortifying to find all of these fast-food receipts.
