Tyndale Rewards updates bring more ways to earn free books

Tyndale Rewards supplies me with free books on a regular basis.  After I read them and share them with my little circle of reader friends, the freebie books get sent off to my grandmother, who loves to read clean romantic fiction.  Those free books really get a workout!  The great thing about this program is that you don’t have to be a blogger to reap the benefits.  ANYONE can join Tyndale Rewards for FREE.  How great is that?!   If you use my referral link to sign up, you’ll even get 25 free points (and I’ll earn 10).   UPDATE: the new site — My Reader Rewards Club — is now up and running. Here’s the signup link!  [Read more…]

3 reasons to download the Chick-Fil-A One app

Disclosure: I am a member of the Chick-Fil-A Moms Panel. I did not receive compensation for this post.

Chick-Fil-A is the one restaurant my family can agree upon every single time.  We love it for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and even snacking in between.  My daughter’s love for salads started with the CFA Asian salad, and now she gets the kale superfood side with her meals instead of fries.  A few months ago, I found out that our local CFA offered curbside pickup when you ordered on the app. Since we have a commute, I took advantage of this several times. Now, with the new Chick-fil-A One App, it’s even more rewarding to visit CFA!

FREE activities – perfect for spring break!

Entertaining the kids can be a daunting task, especially when you don’t have the juice to keep even yourself going. Whether you’re trying to get the kids to stop watching so much TV, or you’re hosting the nieces and nephews for a weekend, here are some tips — and free activities — to keep you on your feet while they have fun!

  1. Get a new box of coloring pencils, stickers, and plenty of paper.  Have the kids draw outside on the patio or deck.  If necessary, give them a task — such as drawing the buds on a tree, or sketching birds that appear in the yard. Just make sure to have a sharpener handy for the coloring pencils, or the fun might be short-lived!

5 apps that save me time and money

5 apps I use all the time - savingsinseconds.com

We used to joke about the saying, “There’s an app for that,” but these days it seems like the apps have gotten a little out of hand.  When you pull up the app store and search, there are SO MANY options that it can be quite overwhelming. At lunch a few days ago, my colleagues and I discussed our favorites. It was fun to see what others are using.  I learned about the Wish app, Shopkick, and a few others. I told my friends about these 5 apps that save me time, money, and a bit of sanity. What are your favorites?  [Read more…]

PINCHme if I’m dreaming….free samples and more!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of PINCHme for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.


I love the whole “Try before you buy” mentality.  It gives me a chance to get to know a product before making a commitment. Back in the day, I used to seek out individual product samples. Time consuming and tedious, that strategy didn’t usually work for me. Thanks to PINCHme, I non longer have to go out in search of the samples. Instead, PINCHme has taken the concept to a whole new level.  The site offers members a chance to try products, completely free of charge, in exchange for brief product-related feedback. Several samples are available, and members can usually choose two or three for their personal box. Sounds pretty great, doesn’t it?
