Thanks for stopping by! If you're new here, be sure to subscribe or join us on facebook to keep up with our newest post! is how I plan to fulfill christmas presents this year

I don’t know about anyone else, but participating in the black friday frenzy shopping just makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck. I just don’t think I can handle shopping while being pregnant with a 5 year old boy who always wants to be in my shadow – ughh!! So this year instead of fighting the crowds of people AND the traffic AND trying to find parking at the stores, I think I’m going to sit it out and spend the day breaking out the Christmas decorations.

I’d much rather sit in the comfort of my living room, with a cup of hot cocoa and flip through my favorite online shops with my iPad. A lot of folks are turned off by the idea of online shopping based solely on the hidden cost of shipping, and rightfully so. There’s nothing worse than finding a fabulous deal and then realizing the shipping costs half as much as the item itself!

Now there’s a way around it!! I’m so thrilled that I found because over 1400+ online retailers are partners with them and offer free shipping to their members! Not only that – also offers 10% cash back – so you actually get PAID to shop! As an added bonus, if you shop black Friday weekend (black Friday through cyber Monday) you can earn 20% cash back. Some participating retailers include Walmart, Target, Amazon, Gap, Nordstrom and many more. I’m thinking that I’m gonna be doing lots of my toy shopping at Walmart and Amazon just to cash in on that. With all that money I plan to spend, I might as well get something in return, right? I love that you can make a list favorites within your profile – making it easy to navigate through the hundreds of retailers they work with. #LoveFreeShipping #CleverGirls #ad

Beyond the 30 days, the regular cost of membership is $9.95 – which is still a bargain, especially if you do all your shopping online. If you purchase enough stuff on a monthly basis, your cash back alone should pay it off!

There’s plenty of benefits to being a member.. In addition to having your 10% cash back, imagine having:

  • A search tool that instantly compares the prices of any of over 100 million items sold by our 10% cash-back retailers, so members can get the best possible deal
  • Coupons that provide free shipping codes and links, as well as other retailer savings offers that members can claim right at checkout
  • Shipping Rebates that pay members back if they’re charged shipping fees on purchases made through our website.
  • Return Shipping Rebates that cover the charges if a member ever needs to return any online purchase — for any reason
  • Price Protection that pays members the difference in price if they purchase an item and find it advertised for less within 90 days. #LoveFreeShipping #CleverGirls #ad is going to make my life sooo much easier this holiday season!

Thanksgiving savings with Unlimited Talk Text and Data/Web from Walmart Family Mobile

This is the time of year where we spend the most money, and in the same turn its also the time of year in which we try to save the most money too. I try to pinch my pennies on things like my wireless service – I’ve basically cut my wireless bill in half since mid October when I switched my service carrier over to Walmart Family Mobile. Having unlimited talk text and data/web is one of the little things that I am thankful for this season!

With this extra bit of savings at this time of year, I can allocate that towards providing my family a more fun filled Christmas morning, with most of everything JP asked Santa for this year. There’s only going to be a few more years in which he will still believe that a fat old man in a red suit will break and enter our home and leave us presents – so I really want to make it as memorable as possible for him.

Even though I use the Samsung Galaxy S4 for Walmart Family Mobile, there’s many other awesome phones available. The best part? They’re all on holiday rollback starting 11/16!

  • ZTE ZMAX-$179.88 (was $199.88)
  • Alcatel Evolve 2- $49.88 (was $59.88)
  • Samsung Exhibit- $79.88 (was $99.88)
  • Nokia Lumia 635- $99.88 (was $129.88)
  • Launch of the new Samsung Galaxy Avant- $199.88

Now there’s something to smile about! Perhaps this might make a thoughtful Christmas present to a loved one… With the unlimited talk text and data/web rate of $34.88 per month, how can you go wrong?

I’m thankful that I have unlimited talk text and data/web on the go because I can Skype chat with my family in Canada anytime they want to reach me! It runs as perfectly smooth on my phone as it does when I am home connected to the WiFi. I couldn’t be more thrilled with my service for the price! #Thankful4Savings#CollectiveBias

Which phone would YOU get??

Bathroom makeover with Danze bathroom faucets

This post is brought to you by Danze. Although I was not compensated for this, the folks at Danze were kind enough to send me a bathroom faucet of my choice. All opinions are 100% my own.

Five year old boys have got to be the sweetest – but have you ever tried sharing a bathroom with one? Mine is no exception, with his projectile mouth-rinsing, bath time crayons and his attempts at aiming correctly. To say the least, keeping a bathroom looking spotless can have it’s challenges when you have small child, period.

I’m giving our main bathroom (which is also JP’s bathroom) a mini-facelift, and part of it is a new shower head by Danze. Danze has an incredible line of modern bathroom faucets.  This is the faucet we started with – the plain, standard faucet with no frills…. Also known for water spots and hard water crust. It does the job, but it’s just not pretty!

Since JP’s bathroom also doubles as a guest bathroom for when we have visitors, it’s important to me for it to look clean. When I looked through all the bathroom faucets available at Danze, I immediately knew that I wanted a replacement. The current faucet we have installed has really bad pressure and taking a shower in there isn’t very pleasant. Luckily, JP primarily takes bubble baths in here so it doesn’t really apply. However, it doesn’t work out so well when we have houseguests stay overnight! I usually offer them use of the master bathroom shower!

Bathrooms are pretty inexpensive for a small facelift,unless you are planning on remodeling things – that’s when it starts to get pricey. I painted 1 wall, bought a few colorful accessories and a whimsical shower curtain to tie it all together. Piece by piece, I will replace all the bigger things – like bathroom faucets. What do you think of my bathroom fix-up?
