Stay Healthy This Fall With Superior Source Vitamins ~ Giveaway

Superior Source Vitamins 2

File Box School Paper Organization System ~ Mini Fridge Giveaway

School Paper Organization Pre K-12

I have this natural tendency to want to keep every single piece of paper that comes home from school. In fact, for K’s three years of preschool I did just that. But the stacks of paper and projects is overwhelming. So last year I devised a new system for saving my daughters’ special Fridgeworthy papers that forces […]

Nescafé With Coffee-Mate: Instant Coffee And Creamer In One ~ Giveaway

Nescafe With Coffee Mate Creamer

Certain things just go together, and they aren’t the same apart. When you think of one, you think of the other — couples like Sonny and Cher, characters like Mickey and Minnie and food like mashed potatoes and gravy. They are good on their own, but they are even better as a team.  Coffee and […]

In A Hurry? HALF TIME Pre-Packed Lunch Kits To The Rescue! ~ Giveaway

Applegate Half Time Lunch

One of the best tips to ease the stress of school mornings is to pack lunches the night before. But the problem with this sage advice is that there are nights when I don’t have time to pack lunch the night before. (And forget about those fancy bento boxes!) There just aren’t enough hours in the day!  Case […]

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fH0cEP0mvlU

My first book club meeting was a success. We may not have all exactly finished the book. We may not have all exactly been in the same room (fevers, lice — mom stuff). But it was a success, and here is why — for the first time we all picked up the same book and […]

Honey Nut Chex Mix

Does your family love to snack as much as mine does? From morning snacks to after-school snacks and don’t forget late-night snacks, it seems like it is always snack time for someone in my house. All this snacking leaves me on a constant hunt for new snack ideas.  A quick way to change up your […]

Back To School With The Perfect Backpack And Lunch Box ~ Giveaway

There are many very important decisions to be made when back-to-school shopping. One of the most important decisions — choosing the perfect backpack and lunchbox combo.

Stop Making Extra Trips For Toilet Paper ~ $25 Walmart Giveaway

Walmart Charmin P&G

“We are out of toilet paper again.” Even though “out of toilet” paper actually means my husband just restocked the bathrooms, and we had about a week’s worth left, I felt the panic rise. I was leaving in the morning for the first of two trips of the next two weeks, plus school was starting, plus […]

Safe Drive Systems: The Solution To The Distracted Driving ~ Giveaway

Toddler Car Seat

When driving with kids in the car, distractions are inevitable. From loud shrieks to requests for snacks and many requests for a music change, there is no such thing as a silent ride with kids. Unless, of course, you fail to keep your kid awake for the quick trip home (yet another distraction), in which […]

Easy Roasted Potato Crisps ~ $100 Visa Giveaway

Roasted Potato Crisps

When people tell me a recipe is easy, I typically take “easy” with some skepticism. My idea of easy is much simpler than most people. I’ve been known to ruin easy recipes because I typically need an easy recipe when I have no time or patience — it needs to be one to two steps and done. At […]

Superior Source Vitamins C D B12

Let me take a wild guess. You probably don’t always get completely balanced meals, and you probably don’t get a full eight-hours of sleep each night, do you? Me neither. But I don’t have time to be sick or feel run down, do you? To help stay healthy and active, I rely on vitamins to […]
