Tracking Pixel

I had the opportunity to try Kidgets® diapers on Melody. All opinions are 100% my own




Tracking PixelBabies are sweet and even though it’s so much fun to have one around the house, I’m sure most all moms can agree that we can’t wait to get our babies out of diapers. In the meantime, I like to use the best possible ones to keep my little girl’s bottom fresh and dry.

I use anywhere from 6-8 of these per day and I don’t see it slowing down anytime soon. In the interest of saving some money, I decided to give Kidgets® diapers from Family Dollar a try and see how well they perform.


Diapers can be alot of things – but most importantly, diapers must be comfortable for baby, absorbent & have strong re closable tabs that help keep the diaper in place. Kidgets® diapers from Family Dollar meet all those standards and then some!



When I took one out of the package, I was expecting it to be bulkier than it was. After trying one, turns out that hey are not only thin but absorbent & comfortable for baby. Melody didn’t seem to notice there was any changes in her diaper from what she was used to and I still got big happy smiles.


Kidgets® from Family Dollar strives to create to create a diaper that is both functional and budget friendly.Bonus points – If you’re not 100% satisfied, you can ask for your money back!

Since there was plenty of 1 on 1 time for me and JP with boring afternoons while the baby slept, I broke down and decided to play minecraft with him over the summer months and see what it was all about. Surprisingly, it turns out I kinda enjoyed playing with him!

I used to be part of the same group of moms that couldn’t understand what was so special about the 8-bit graphics, but after playing a few times I realized just how imaginative the gaming experience can be. We began to build a house, then a roller coaster (which we named the happy coaster) , a swimming pool and countless other additions as the mood would strike.


So there’s this really neat little organization called and it’s where minecraft gamers alike can join together on the same server and play side by side. It takes place in a movie theater, so you can see your character on the big screen. See if there’s one near you!

No matter how much he begs, I’m not about to let my 6 year old join a public server and play with just anyone. Most people are ok but I’ve had enough of a gaming past to know better, which is why I like the idea of Its like putting the human connection back into digital gameplay – something kids desperately need as we fall down the digital rabbit hole. Who knows? Maybe it will lead to some lasting friendships!

Watch out grocery store – I have realized the power of my little Prepaid Visa® RushCard

I have been given the opportunity to try out the Prepaid Visa® RushCard. I’ve been compensated for this post by Visa Clear Prepaid, but the tips below are  100% my own.

Remember that adorable pink Prepaid Visa® RushCard I talked about a little while ago? Well, I’ve been using it now for a good month or so, and it’s been a great tool in helping me save money. I’m so happy that I decided to try using it because I never thought that a prepaid card would help me save anything. Grocery shopping always busts me on our budget, so I decided to put some limitations on what I’ll allow myself to spend in an effort to save.

I loaded my prepaid card up with $300 and challenged myself to stretch it and make it last for an entire month’s worth of groceries. It was tough to do, but I managed to pull it off! Of course, I had to make some small changes with what I was buying and stick to my no nonsense lists. No paper towels, no cans of drinks, no more expensive coffee pods. Instead I bought whole bean coffee and ground it myself, started using reusable kitchen towels and bought a couple of 2 liter bottles of soda.

Maintaining one of these cards is very simple because there’s so many ways that you can add funds and fees are simple – you can choose $1 per transaction (capped at $10 a month), or if you use it more regularly than a couple of times a month, you should opt for the monthly plan. I love that there’s no overdraft – only spend what you have, and when it’s through, it’s through.

Since this has been working out as a way to save when purchasing groceries, I’m thinking of applying the same tactic for other things I want to save for. Christmas fund because now I have 2 children to buy for! Photography equipment that I’m constantly drooling over and last but not least – a vacation fund. There’s even a nifty tool in my Prepaid Visa® RushCard account that helps me plan it out!
