Scare-Free Halloween Savings at Family Dollar

This post is sponsored by Family Dollar but all opinions are honest and my own.

My middle child has been needing some extra attention lately. It’s been quite the transition for her with big sissy back in school and a new baby constantly in my arms, so I’ve been intentional with giving her special jobs and making sure she feels included. 

During a recent trip to Family Dollar she helped me make every decision as we stocked up on Halloween goodies.  Because the prices are so affordable I even felt comfortable giving her the liberty to make some choices on her own, and I watched as her confidence shot through the roof!

She was happy knowing she assisted me, and with Smart Coupons (Family Dollar’s saving program), I was happy knowing that the savings were adding up too!

Have Some Fun While Winning with McDonald’s Trick. Treat. Win! 

This post is sponsored ad content by McDonald’s but the opinions expressed here are my own.

The other day my 6 year old told me how excited she is for October. I know it’s because she can’t wait to dress up and collect as much candy as she can at the end of the month, and you know what? I don’t blame her!

While she’s waiting in great anticipation for that one special night of tricks and treats, I’m excited for the daily chance to win a different prize with McDonald’s newest game, Trick. Treat. Win!

Organizing Healthy School Lunches With Sistema®

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Sistema® ; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

What happened to summer vacation? We are just a few days away from the new school year, and whether you’re holding onto to these last moments of freedom and fun, or counting down until your kiddos get back to their regular studies, preparations must be made!

I’m feeling pretty good about the fact that I’ve already purchased the school supplies my daughter will need, but there’s a major part of the process I really want to better plan for.

Lunch!! 

My child will continue to bring food from home like she did last year, but thanks to Sistema® I’ll be able to stay organized while preparing quick, healthy meals. Read More

3 Must-Have Items for Expectant Parents

I received these items as gifts from the brands, but as always my opinion is honest and my own.

It’s been nearly 4 years since I’ve had a newborn, and I’ve learned about some amazing new products since then. They’re the kind of items that should top anyone’s wish list, as they are versatile and functional, while making things a little easier for mom and dad!

There are three things that I’m particularly excited to put to use, and I know the expectant parents in your life will love them too. Let’s find out what they are!!

Keeping a Clutter-Free Kids Room with Creative QT!

I received these items from Creative QT in exchange for a review. As always, opinions are honest & my own.

My 3 and 6 year old share a bedroom, and keeping it clean can often be an uphill battle. Our recent move gave me the opportunity to organize and sift through a lot of treasures junk the girls had acquired, in hopes of a bit of a fresh start in our new place.

So far they’ve kept the room on the up and up (gloooooory!!), but one area was still a huge issue until recently.

The stuffed animals!!! Ahhhhhh!!!

My girls have A LOT of stuffed animal friends (this is paired down…eek!), and until now they have been in hiding behind their beds. 

I was at a bit of a loss (we’ve tried that whole hanging net thing and it was a bust), until our Stuff ‘n Sit from Creative QT arrived!
