Grandparent’s Day!

Part of our jobs as mothers is remembering holidays, family and friends birthdays, picking out the gifts and cards. Well another day that now needs to be considered is Grandparents Day. My children’s Grandparents live for Grandparents Day. Each year I plan, and rack my brain trying to think of what craft my children can make this year, but this year I decided I don’t have time for crafting, I’m just going to purchase something. Lighten my personal load a bit. Well seeing as Grandparent’s day is lurking just around the corner, I have started my shopping early. I have until September 13, to make my last and final purchases, but I decided to start early this year.

Let’s start by discussing the different options for Grandparents Day gift ideas. Crafting is always an excellent idea. Hand crafted mugs, stepping stones, hand painted photos from the grandchildren are always an excellent gift idea. Pinterest is full of all sorts of crafting ideas for you and the kids to do together.
Grandmas love personalized necklaces, or bracelets. Online retailers such as or are full of all sorts of unique gift ideas for Grandma.

Grandpas adore personalized key chains, picture frames, and mugs. Great shops to find these personalized items for Papa can be found on or can easily be created using

Planning a special picnic to the park, or zoo with Grandma and Grandpa, all expenses paid, is a fun family outing to celebrate your children’s Grandparents as well.
I always feel that my children are truly blessed to have such amazing, loving Grandparents. I used to think of Grandparents Day with dread, just another day to purchase a gift for, or plan for someone else. Then I realized how important my children’s relationship with their Grandparents is. So instead I now start my shopping early, use summer deals to my advantage and make purchases before September arrives.

Managing the chaos with Cozi

It seems as moms, we are always on the go, always have something to do, somewhere to be. It can be overwhelming, and we all know about the dreaded mom brain. Since having my children I have honestly questioned whether I have Alzheimer’s or not. I forget everything; I may be talking midsentence to my husband, and completely space and draw a blank the next. It’s embarrassing; it’s frustrating. I’m here to tell you mom brain is real, but the great news is that I’ve found an app that helps to organize those erratic mom brain thoughts, and to-do lists!
I needed something to help me keep my to-do lists in order, store my grocery lists, keep everyone’s schedules and appointments. I started trying out different apps geared specifically towards busy moms, and I fell in love with the Cozi app. It’s simple to use, it’s totally functional, and it is a must have in my day to day. Oh not to mention it’s free!
Cozi gives you the ability to manage your appointments and activities.
You can create and share grocery lists, to-do lists as well as chores!
The Cozi app is available for iPhone, iPad, Android, and Windows 8.1
As a busy mom of two toddlers I will take all the help I can get. Sure this app can’t guarantee that I get out of the house on time, or without a toddler meltdown, but I now no longer step into the store to realize I’ve forgotten my grocery list on the counter. I can access my grocery list anywhere and anytime.

I have the ability to keep track of our family appointments, schedules, and meetings.
I love anything that makes my job as a mom easier. I also love the fact that this app is free! It can be downloaded on your device from the google play store, or through the app store on your iPhone.

Summer Savings!

Summer is here, that means, BBQ’s, time with friends and family, swimming, and kids home on summer vacation. Summer isn’t only a time for friends and family, but it’s also an excellent time for savings, and sales! Let’s discuss all of the awesome sales during the month of July!

Garden Clearance:
With spring having come and gone, most retailers are discounting spring items, trying to make room for the upcoming fall seasoning. Don’t you find it odd that it’s midsummer, and there are fall clothes out? Well it’s a great time to stock up on gardening supplies, hoses, and seeds. The other day I picked up a pair of gardening boots for my toddler for $3.98 at Target!

Home Goods:
With hot days and evenings, summer is a time to cool down. Retailers begin to discount kitchen gadgets like ice cream makers, ice trays, and Popsicle trays. Not only kitchen gadgets but kiddie pools, sprinklers, sunscreen, and swim diapers. Anything related to fun in the sun begins to get marked down and put on end displays to help rid stores of summer items in order to make room for the upcoming fall season. Retailers like Target, Walmart, Walgreens, Home Depot mark down their items in July.

In-season produce:
The cost of groceries seems to continually go up and up. The other day I couldn’t believe the cost of Organic Milk has gone up to $7.98 a gallon, and that was on sale! I’m quickly spending my toddlers college savings on cow’s milk. I try to save on groceries anyway that I can so during July I will stock up on in-season produce and freeze what I can to use in the months to come. Apricots, nectarines, peaches, plums, strawberries, cucumbers, figs, watermelon, zucchini, yellow squash, and blueberries are only a few of the inexpensive in-season produce currently on the shelves in your local grocery store. Frozen fruit is a great way to include fruit into your muffins, breads, and every day meal planning. Not to mention purchasing produce while it’s in season will save you a hefty amount of change.

Camping Supplies:
With Labor Day quickly approaching, retailers realize that July and August are months when families decide to take their last family vacations before the school year starts. Retailers will begin marking down camping gear, tents, and bug spray.

This month you will find so many great deals, that you must get out and do a little shopping!

4th of July Online Savings

I love the Fourth of July, not only because of the BBQs, feelings of patriotism or the summer heat that starts baking us for the next few months, but more because it has always been a time for family and my memories of picnics at the park and sparklers after dark are some of my most vivid childhood memories. So remember that summer is a time of rest, relaxation and fun and even if you, (like me) have to continue to work through the summer months, take the fourth to really cherish time with your family and enjoy the fruits of summer, even if it is only for one day.

However, these shopping deals are good all weekend long so definitely sneak away and try to grab some of these hot summer bargains.

Its Almost Summer, Where’s My Bikini…or not!!!!

Okay, so its summer time, which usually means spending time outdoors, grilling on the BBQ, finding cool things to do with the kids and squeezing your….um, ample behind (if you are like me) into a bathing suit. This maybe something that some of you look forward to, I am not one of those people. Since having kids, I have gained a pound or two, now that is not to say that I’m not super hot (what??? moms can be super hot), I am, but there is just more super hotness than before. So here are some great summer meals that help you trim your figure (or keep it slim) and some great bathing suits that will make any shape look amazing.


Sweetie Reviews gives this great, point by point, list of advice for those of us who are looking for a comfortable and flattering swimsuit style for our figure.

So now that you have found the best suit for you, its time to shed just a few pounds (if you need to, which I certainly do). Even if you aren’t looking to slim down, summer time is a great time to eat healthy and be active. Many succulent fruits and vegetables are available during the summer months, which makes eating healthy, much easier. Here are a few great recipes for summer fun by the pool or at the beach.

Summer Vegetable Crêpes

From EatingWell:  July/August 2008

Summer Vegetable Crêpes  Recipe

Crêpes aren’t just for dessert—they make a quick and savory weeknight dinner. Here they’re filled with ricotta cheese, green beans, zucchini and corn and topped with a chive-cream sauce. Don’t skip the step of placing a piece of parchment or wax paper under each crêpe as you fill it—without it, the crêpes are tricky to roll. Serve with: A tossed salad.

“I couldn’t find crepes, so I used puff pastry. It made it dry all together as a whole dish. But the filling by itself was wonderful. I’m a sucker for ricotta. 😉 My husband liked the filling as well, but not the sauce. It was too lemony..


  • 4 slices whole-wheat bread
  • 8 teaspoons reduced-fat mayonnaise, divided
  • 4 thick slices tomato
  • 4 teaspoons sliced fresh basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Deals for The Week of 6/12

Here are deals for the upcoming week ahead…

The Frugal Girls always has great deals and fun ways to save, but this week, they found some really incredible deals that you shouldn’t miss.


Blockbuster is offering unlimited free movie rentals until the 4th of July. When you rent just one new release for $2.99 you can then rent an unlimited number of movies priced $1.99 or less, one day rental, one rental at a time until July 4th. Use this link to print your coupon and bring it with you to a Blockbuster store. (not available online or at Blockbuster Epress kiosks).

If you want to enjoy some family fun this 4th of July season, I suggest doing a family film festival where everyday or every other day until the 4th of July you screen some family favorites. You can even make it theme oriented, choosing patriotic movies, nature films, historic documentaries if you are feeling taking this opportunity to teach your children about America. Or just have fun and celebrate American family values by screening your favorite, old movies, comedies or nostalgic movies you want to share with your family.

WALMART BISTRO SET $48.00 plus $14.97 Shipping found this great deal on the Mainstay Bistro Set being sold at Walmart, which is $48.00 down from $99.00 and can be shipped for $14.97 or for free with Walmart’s site to store option.

This is a nice outdoor set, perfect for small patios, balconies or tucked away in a romantic corner of the yard, creating a great spot for morning coffee, afternoon tea or evening cocktails and with this amazing price, it would be silly not to buy one.


Okay, seriously this is a steal, you get a 9 piece reversible chocolate brown and burgundy bed set which was originally $350.00 for only $99.00 plus shipping. Buyers gave the product a 5 out of 5 stars and says that the look of the set and the colors are simply stunning. I’m sure this comforter set will add grace and sophistication to any room. Check out this amazing set for yourself at Macy’s.

SILO 42″ LCD HDTV FOR $399.00

Its hard for me to pass up deals on huge cheap flat screen TV’s, I’ll admit, I’m a sucker for the big fat flat screen, but at this price, maybe I can be. The picture quality, sound and menu are all good, which makes the is a great TV for a family on the budget. Nothing is more fun than family movie night and this big TV could be your home theater in a heart beat. Check out Woot for this incredible deal.

Silo 42” 1080p LCD HDTV


Ahhh man I wanna go to this place! If you are planning a fun get away that doesn’t involve driving over 8 hours with screaming siblings or sleeping on Aunt Ruth’s couch which was new in 1970, you may just want to dream about this vacation.

It is only $217.00 per night, down from $315.00 the only downside to this stunning place is that it is “seductive” and “adult oriented” which means you probably can’t take the kids, but I bet Aunt Ruth can. If parents are in need of a little rest and relaxation together, this may just be the spot.

However, if you are like me and can’t really part with the spawns, there is another “glamorous” “child friendly” option.


Get fresh mountain air and bask in the beauty of nature in this idyllic lodge, where kids stay free as long as they are accompanied by a parent. Since the rooms are just $110 a night, this is quite a bargain for a couple of days of peace and quiet in a small mountain town famous for a big huge film festival (Sundance Film Festival) and local shopping, celebrity lore and alfresco dining. Sounds like fun, sign me up.

Ahhhh Dad! Celebrating Father’s Day

Well, we moms try to keep it a secret, but really we couldn’t have done it without Dad, no really….we couldn’t 🙂 Whether Dad is a biological dad, step dad, dad and another dad or a father figure, we all know that dads are important and this is our opportunity to tell them so.

This year, instead of the traditional stuff try thinking outside of the box and finding ways to really celebrate how much you love this guy who helps mom’s run the ship, steer the boat and can make life a whole lot of fun.


No! Not that kind of packing, backpacking. Dads love (or lets say that most Dads love) the great outdoors, what better gift to encourage your camping, traveling and general adventuring Dad/husband/Significant Other than to get him this awesome backpack from REI. You can go on a road trip/hiking excursion and make him carry all the stuff or hey, these back packs are at such good price here, everyone could get one and take your little family on the road. Backpacking, be it tent camping or continent hopping is a great way to save money and the headache of lugging around heavy bulky bags.

REI Mars 85 Men's Backpackat $103.00 plus free shipping this is an incredible deal as this particular backpack is marked down from $199 and usually backpacks such as these cost around two hundred dollars or more.


Now this one I mean seriously. What better way to get Dad pick up the kids from softball, school or a slumber party than to get him one of these. KINDLE I am sure that Dad will be much more willing to do stuff like sit at the park, dance class or soccer practice if he can stash a Kindle in his pocket to keep up with his magazines, newspapers or the latest best selling novel. I know many a father who cherishes time with their children and their Kindle. is having a Father’s Day sale on their Kindle Wifi for $114 and if you order one day shipping, Dad’s new Kindle will arrive in time for his special day even if you wait till the last minute.

Kindle Video


Most Dads (and I venture to say almost all) love  an ADVENTURE like make your own yukele No! who does that? But how about send him to or better yet, do some of these fun activities mentioned in Reader’s Digest that suggests Dad’s Day activities for the family or try these Father’s Day Adentures. Dad will love spending time with his loved ones and exploring life at the same time.


While Randy Pausch, a lecturer and teacher at Carnagie Mellon University, died of pancreatic cancer in 2008, his legacy lives on. One of the greatest gifts he left humanity was his dedication to being a father. His book The Last Lecture, touches on the dreams, aspirations and hopes that a father leaves as a legacy for his children. Not only is the book inspirational, but it proves that the wisdom, love and guidance of father’s is universal, timeless and extraordinarily, even when they are no longer present in their child’s life. Since some fathers spend many hours at work, the book helps reconnect them to their lives, childhood dreams and children.  

The Last Lecture


While this may not be the cheapest gift around, it certainly seems like a whole lot of fun. The Artful Wine Maker has a great Dad’s Day deal on wine making kits that will be fun for, Dad and Mom. This is the kind of gift that just gets better with age. You also receive 25% off your kit and free shipping by using the coupon code DADDY61911 at check out. The all inclusive package for 12 bottles of home brewed wine is $149.oo plus free shipping.

Graduation Gifts that are Meaningful and Inexpensive

I know that most graduating seniors are hoping, praying, begging, dealing, negotiating, pleading and in any other way expressing their abject desire for a car this graduation, however, a new, used or barely running car isn’t in everybody’s budget. So what can a mom and dad give to their graduating senior that is meaningful, reflects their pride, but won’t bankrupt them.

When shopping for a graduating high school student, most kids want to focus on college or their future pursuits so giving gift certificates is a good way to help them make choices about what they want for their new adventures. Items for college dorms, new apartments and higher education are great gifts as are travel experiences with organized groups.

ALLPOSTERS.COM offers gift certificates for everything from inexpensive reproductions of famous artists to very unique framed pieces of original art. Everything to make your child’s room or living space, creative, innovative and cool.

Of course you can also do a gift certificate to Target or Walmart for inexpensive apartment set up or better yet, get an Ikea gift card.


Sometimes milestones such as these call for homemade or created gifts, like photo books, photo collages or frameable art with sayings or childhood drawings that tell your child how much you have loved parenting them and how proud you are of their past, present and future accomplishments. Consider looking at craft sites and photo sites to get great gift giving ideas. Here are a few that I found…

Shutterfly is having a save 50% off EVERYTHING on their site, this is a great place to make photo collages and books. Check out the different graduation related gifts you can create, but make sure you do it before June 3rd when the sale ends.

Try using Photofetti which creates a fun photo display with design and color which can be added to cards, posters, banners and much much more.

PhotoFetti has great ideas for grads, with just about every idea in the book. Check out their website for find fun deals and great gifts, like this personalized photo poem.


Lastly give the gift of experience by book your teen on a travel camp excursion. While some of the programs listed on teen summer are rather expensive, they would create the memories of a lifetime, especially if your grad has never left the country before. Here are some that looked interesting….

THE GLOBAL LEADERSHIP PROGRAM where students can spend one to four weeks in a developing country, volunteering and helping the local people of that country while being educated about global leadership.

Prices for this trip range from $1,700 to $4,500.

You can also sign students up to take The Road Less Traveled, which takes students to exciting locals and adventures all over the world.

The Road Less Traveled

The Road Less Traveled offers many adventure and service excursions that both test a student’s sense of fun and bravery coupled with meaningful volunteer opportunities to help support local communities.
