Back to School Savings with Walmart Savings Catcher #SavingsCatcher

My oldest is starting Kindergarten this year and I’m actually doing quite well with it. He’s ready. I’m ready. And we’re getting excited about the next year.

One thing that’ll be new to us is shopping for back to school supplies from a list the Kindergarten teacher provided for us.

Even before my kids went to school I always loved stocking up on back to school supplies during this time of year because of the huge discounts you can find. I’m also kinda obsessed with school supplies and love a well stocked craft area.  [Read more...]

Is your preschooler headed to back to school or to school for the first time? There are some things you can do to help prepare your child for the next couple of weeks.

5 Back to School Tips for Preschool Parents

#1. Get That Routine Started

You’re probably aware of how important a routine is for your preschooler. I have to say that the younger your children are then the more important a routine is. If your preschooler takes a nap, you may need to start phasing that out, so they’re not in shock as they approach the upcoming school year. [Read more...]

15 Quick and Easy Family Meals

With summer coming to an end (lets wipe away the tears) I have started to compile a list of great quick and easy family meals to keep on hand when school starts.

I know just how busy that time of year can get and I want to make sure we’re sticking with our budget and feeding the kids healthy meals at night. I’ve found that if I don’t have a plan I quickly turn to the easy option of calling the husband and having him pick something up.

By putting together all of my meals on Foodie I’ve been able to create a collection I can turn to whenever I start to meal plan!  [Read more...]

I spruced up my old car using Armor All products from Walmart, as part of a sponsored post featuring how to make an old car run like new for Socialstars #WalmartAuto

Great Car Care How to Make an Old Car Run Like New #WalmartAuto

It may come as a surprise to many but I still have my first vehicle. And it still runs great! But figuring out how to make an old car run like new didn’t come easily. It took a lot of regular checks and maintenance.

Luckily my husband came into my life shortly after I purchased my truck and helped me by reminding me of the fact that cars need things like oil changes regularly. I started to pay more attention to that little sticker that the oil change place put on my windshield.

And then when I hit a coyote on a late night driving home to the boonies and my truck was put out of commission he jumped at the chance to help fix and rebuild the truck. By learning more about the vehicle inside and out we were able to make sure it was getting everything it needed to stay in tip top condition once fixed.  [Read more...]

Almond Coconut Granola Recipe

Over the years I’ve found that breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. So that means that choices made at breakfast need to be smart ones.

Something I always need in the mornings is a good protein packed fuel to get me going for the day.

But that doesn’t mean I want to eat eggs and breakfast meat everyday so I’ve been searching for some other healthy alternatives to keep me satisfied. Quick to prepare is an added bonus! [Read more...]
