7 Must-have summer travel apps to add to your iPhone before your next trip

Traveling with kids can be very stressful, especially when you have little ones. As I gear up for our first road trip of 2012 I have been testing out some apps that I hope will make our road trip a little less stressful. Since there are so many different ways to use apps to travel better, I will be discussing two different types of apps: Summer Travel Apps and Kiddie Apps. Today we will look at some Summer Travel Apps. Read the entire post here on Label Daddy’s Blog

Champions for Kids SIMPLE Service Project: Lighthouse Mission #SpinbrushCFK


In a previous post I told you how I was participating in the Champions for Kids SIMPLE Service Project, Spin Into Action. I was asked to help by gathering my family, friends and co-workers to provide toothbrushes, toothpaste and other oral care items for the children in my community. I began my mission at Walmart and purchased some Spinbrushes to start off my collection of dental care items (you can check out my shopping trip  and see how I made out.) After shopping I raided my stockpile of oral care items to add to the donation.

Thank you Suffolk Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics!

After a not-so-great response from my facebook post asking for items, I decided to make some cold calls to some local dentists. After a few no I finally got a YES! Suffolk Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics was kind enough to make a donation of toothbrushes. Here you can see my little guy J2 happy to accept this generous donation.

J2 was very excited to accept the toothbrush donation.

While we were waiting J2 had to get a photo op with Spidey

Spend less so you can give more. #SpinbrushCFK

I love, love, love coupons. I cannot stress this fact enough! Coupons have been such an important part of my life since I decided to quit my outside job in order to stay at home and raise my two boys. Living on one income in a two income world has been very hard for my family but we have been doing it for almost five years now and I truly think it is because I have learned to get what my family needs (and sometimes wants) by only paying pennies on the dollar and shopping smarter.
Over the past year, I have kicked my coupon strategies up a notch and have build quite a stockpile of  personal care items. This is my favorite kind of stockpile for many reasons. The items last for years and I don’t have to worry about critters or spoilage, I never, ever, run out of items in the middle of a shower and the best reason of all….I can make large donations from it! When money is tight, it is very hard to make large donations. I know you all want to help others in need but you also want to take care of your family, right? Most veteran couponers know that when you combine a coupon plus a sale AND rewards from drugstores, you can get most personal items very cheap, free or even make a profit!  This is especially true for oral hygiene items, one of my favorite stockpile items. These items are super expensive if you buy them at full price so when there is the perfect storm of sale/coupon/reward, I buy, buy, buy!. Once my stockpile reaches a point where it is too much for my family to use, I give it away! I cannot tell you how good it feels to be able to donate huge amounts of items knowing it cost me mostly time and very little money. I like to donate my stockpile to my church but will help any organization in need, especially those that cater to low income families with children.

Mommy Must-Haves: As Seen on TV’s Open It! {Review and Giveaway}


It happens every year at Christmas. The anticipation builds for weeks and weeks until the big day. Tons of beautifully wrapped presents under the tree get torn open in minutes in a frenzy of excitement as mom and dad sit back and watch with giant smiles on their faces, relaxing on the couch. Wait, what? It’s not like that at your house you say? Maybe you have a more common scenario like the one I have at my home. The first part is the same, anticipation, wrapped presents, excitement, yadda, yadda, yadda but with one small, significant difference.

Problem: Once the presents are opened the real horror story begins. Imagine two very persistent boys begging you to open their new toys at the same time.

Solution: Hard, annoying plastic packaging is no match for the Open It! Now you can open all those toys quickly and safely!

Skip the mall and buy your glasses online {I even have a coupon code for you}

My kids my work and just everyday life keep me pretty busy these days. I fondly remember the days when I was able to spend a Saturday afternoon at the mall, browsing with a cup of coffee in hand, not really worrying about the time. It was a simple time in my life. I worked, I shopped, I hung out with friends. Easy. Read the rest of this entry »
