Earn over 25,000 Plenti Points at Rite Aid this week (worth at least $250!) http://moneysavingmom.com/2017/09/earn-25000-plenti-points-rite-aid-week-worth-least-250.html http://moneysavingmom.com/2017/09/earn-25000-plenti-points-rite-aid-week-worth-least-250.html#comments Wed, 06 Sep 2017 20:02:14 +0000 http://moneysavingmom.com/?p=241565

(Note: This post and giveaway were sponsored by MARC USA and Rite Aid. Read our disclosure policy here.)

Calling all Rite Aid shoppers! Get super excited for some amazing savings, because Rite Aid is running a Plenti Points Palooza during the entire month of September!

Every week, Rite Aid will be running a different Plenti Points promotion:

  • Week of 9/3 (this week!) — There are 25,000+ individual Plenti Points offers worth at least $250.
  • Week of 9/10 — Earn 2000 Plenti Points when you buy $50 worth of participating items (Limit 2 per household).
  • Week of 9/17 — There will be a minimum of 20,000 in individual Plenti Points offers worth at least $200.
  • Week of 9/24 — There will be a minimum of 20,000 in individual Plenti Points offers worth at least $200.

Be on the lookout for the details of each promotion in the weekly ad and at your local Rite Aid store! You can also go HERE to check out each week’s deals when they go live. The Plenti Points Palooza deals will reset each Sunday morning at 12:01 a.m CT.

I haven’t shopped at Rite Aid at all as much as I’ve shopped at Walgreens and CVS, mostly because when I was really playing the Drugstore Game in earnest, we didn’t have a Rite Aid in our state. So I had to just see the photos and hear about the great deals from friends and family who did have a Rite Aid.

So I feel like I’m still a Rite Aid newbie… and being back in the store and trying to calculate the deals minus the Plenti points & manufacturer’s coupons and figuring out the best scenarios brought back fond memories of when I was learning how to play the drugstore game at CVS and Walgreens so many years ago when Jesse was in law school!

Here are some things I learned:

  1. The shelves are very clearly marked with the deals. I was so grateful that not only were the deals listed in the ad, but the shelves also had tags that spelled out the deal details and also told you what the limits were.
  2. Sign up ahead of time for your Plenti card. You can sign up in-store to get your Plenti card, however, I would recommend doing it ahead of time because some of the deals require you to load coupons to your card via your account. This is very simple to do, but it’s much easier to do ahead of time.
  3. They calculate the Plenti points based upon the non-percentage off price. By this, I mean that if it says you must buy $18 worth of products to get 400 Plenti points (worth at least $4) and some of the products are on sale Buy One, Get One 50% off, they will calculate your total toward the Plenti points purchase BEFORE they take off the 50% off. I looked online while at the store to verify this and couldn’t find this online, but that’s how it worked out on my receipt.
  4. They give you a detailed breakdown on your receipt. I loved how they tell you on your receipt exactly how many Plenti points you earned. So if you’re not sure if you did a deal right, you can check your receipt as soon as you check out to verify.

They had all of their summer items marked down by 75%! There were a LOT of great deals in this section! We picked up popsicle molds for just $0.50 after this discount!

My Favorite Deals This Week

Three of my favorite deals at Rite Aid this week are on Crest toothpaste, Oral-B toothbrushes, and Crest mouthwash or Oral-B Glide Floss. You can get all of them for FREE after the Load2Card coupons and Plenti points.

Here are the details on these three deals:

Deal #1

Buy 1 Crest Toothpaste (select varieties — look for the marked tags on the shelf) — $4 with your Rite Aid card
Load the $2 off coupon to your account before purchasing
Spend $2 + tax out of pocket, Get 200 Plenti points (equal to at least $2)

Deal #2

Buy 1 Oral-B Toothbrush (select varieties — look for the marked tags on the shelf) — $4 with your Rite Aid card
Load the $1 off coupon to your account before purchasing
Spend $3 + tax out of pocket, Get 300 Plenti points (equal to at least $3)

Deal #3

Buy 1 Oral-B Glide Floss or Crest Mouthwash (select varieties — look for the marked tags on the shelf) — $4 with your Rite Aid card
Load the $1 off coupon to your account before purchasing
Spend $3 + tax out of pocket, Get 300 Plenti points (equal to at least $3)

You can do each of these three deals two times — which means that you can get six items for free after the Load2Card coupon and the Plenti points!

My kids were QUITE excited with the deals I got using the Plenti offers — especially since I bought some treats that I usually never would buy (hello, Oreos and frozen pizzas!)

Watch my Facebook Live video below for all of the details on each of the deals I got this week:

If you haven’t been to Rite Aid in awhile, this week is a GREAT week to go! And in case you needed an extra incentive, I’m giving a $200 gift card away, too!

Enter to win a $50 gift certificate to EnviroKlenz odor & chemical elimination products {4 winners!} http://moneysavingmom.com/2017/07/enter-win-50-gift-certificate-enviroklenz-odor-chemical-elimination-products-4-winners.html http://moneysavingmom.com/2017/07/enter-win-50-gift-certificate-enviroklenz-odor-chemical-elimination-products-4-winners.html#comments Thu, 27 Jul 2017 21:32:31 +0000 http://moneysavingmom.com/?p=238624

(Note: This post and giveaway were sponsored by EnviroKlenz. Read our disclosure policy here.)

Enter to win a coupon for $50 off EnviroKlenz odor & chemical elimination products {4 winners!}

Are you concerned about foul odors or possible harmful pollutants inside your home? Do you have kids who struggle with allergies and asthma?

If so, you might want to check out EnviroKlenz — a company that uses advanced technology and environmental sensitivity trigger elimination to help destroy a broad spectrum of toxic chemicals, fragrances, tobacco smoke, and pesticides in your home.

EnviroKlenz carries a variety of products meant to remove odors and neutralize chemicals in your home — including laundry products, surface cleaners, and air quality products. All of their products are guaranteed safe, non-toxic, fragrance free, and environmentally friendly.

Their Mobile Air System is their most popular product, with the following features:

  • Removes and neutralizes chemical odors, fragrances, VOCs, particulats, and allergens all at once from the air inside your home.
  • Patented technology uses natural earth minerals to neutralize chemicals, pollutants and fragrances while the HEPA filter removes harmful dust, particulates, allergens, pet dander and more with 99.99% efficiency.
  • The system is portable so it can easily be moved around your home and office, bringing relief where you need it most.
  • The EnviroKlenz cartridge is superior to standard carbon filters. Carbon filters are great at absorbing chemicals, but once it is filled to capacity it will begin releasing the chemicals back into the environment. EnviroKlenz not only absorbs, but also neutralizes chemicals and odors on impact.

Even at the sale price of $649.99, this is a very expensive product. However, if the environmental condition inside your home is something you prioritize and you’re considering the investment into this product, you can currently get 20% off your purchase of the Mobile Air Unit with coupon code MSM20 at checkout!

Also, as a MoneySavingMom reader, you’ll get a bonus three FREE air filters with your Mobile Air Unit. That will last you for an entire year! (These will automatically be added to your order after you purchase the unit through this link.)

They also carry several other laundry and surface cleaning products that have the following features:

  • Highly effective chemical neutralization is achieved without the concern of releasing harsh chemicals into the environment.
  • The EnviroKlenz Technology adsorbs and eliminates toxic and noxious chemicals with a combination of both physical and chemisorption mechanisms. Chemical elimination is achieved while retaining the safety characteristics of the basic earth minerals
  • Not only are EnviroKlenz products completely non-toxic and safe to be used around children and pets, but they also effectively neutralize existing chemicals and cleaners in your home.
  • The Laundry Additive works to remove body odors, fragrances, and other chemicals in the clothing without the use of toxic chemicals or masking agents.

If you’re interested in any of these products, you can use coupon code MSM20 to get 20% off your entire purchase of EnviroKlenz products right now!

Want to win a $50 gift certificate toward EnviroKlenz products?

The folks over at EnviroKlenz are giving away four $50 gift certificates to four MSM readers! This will allow you to get multiple products for FREE!

To enter the giveaway, just comment on this post telling us which EnviroKlenz products you’re most interested in trying! We will randomly pick four winners from all of the comments to each win a $50 gift certificate.

This giveaway is now closed.

Motivate your kids to do chores with the Homey app + enter to win a FREE unlimited annual subscription! http://moneysavingmom.com/2017/06/motivate-kids-chores-homey-app-enter-win-free-unlimited-annual-subscription.html http://moneysavingmom.com/2017/06/motivate-kids-chores-homey-app-enter-win-free-unlimited-annual-subscription.html#comments Tue, 06 Jun 2017 20:50:51 +0000 http://moneysavingmom.com/?p=234238

(Note: This post and giveaway were sponsored by Homey. Read our disclosure policy here.)

I believe that one of the greatest gifts you can give your kids is a strong work ethic.

I know it doesn’t feel like a gift when you are training and teaching and explaining and re-doing and inspecting their work over and over again when they are little.

I know it doesn’t feel like a gift when it takes 5 times as long for you to get anything done while they are working alongside you.

I know it doesn’t feel like a gift when they have bad attitudes and complain about having to work while their friends get to play.

I know it doesn’t feel like a gift when you are tired and worn out and it’d be so much easier and quicker for you to just do it yourself rather than having them help or do their chores.


But if you stick with it, someday they will be old enough to do all of the laundry for your family and you’ll just write it on their list and they will sort, wash, dry, fold, and put it away with zero help from you and with zero complaints from them because they just know it’s what is expected of them.

And (hopefully!) they’ll carry this same work ethic into the real world someday and it will take them far in life. Then, all those days, weeks, and months of effort and training will pay off in big dividends!

Mamas in the trenches: I know it’s tough. I know it feels like you aren’t making any headway and that your kids will never be old enough to do anything but make messes and need your help.

But the light is at the end of the tunnel… hang on and keep plodding forward. And you’ll have your own in-house laundry service before you know it! 😉

I’m so grateful that my parents taught me to work hard from a young age. Looking back, I realize how much doing chores as a child prepared me so well for being a wife, mom, and business owner!

That’s why I was excited when Homey asked me about doing a review of their new app that helps teach kids about money through completing chores and working toward goals.

I love that the Homey app not only encourages kids to develop a strong work ethic, but it teaches kids how money is earned, encourages long-term goal setting, instills real life financial skills, and connects the whole family with a fun approach to paid chores.

Here’s how the Homey app works:

1. Download the Homey app here for Android or iPhone. You can access its basic features for FREE, or you can opt to upgrade your account to premium for $3.99/month or $29.99 annually.

They even offer an unlimited feature for $6.99/month or $49.99 annually. {Scroll down to the bottom of this post for an opportunity to win a FREE year of the unlimited subscription!}

2. Set up your household and then a profile for each member within the app.

3. Decide on one device or multiple devices. If your kids are old enough to have their own mobile devices, you can have linked individual profiles on separate mobile devices. If your kids are younger, the individual profiles can all be shared on one family device. As the household creator, you also have the ability to set permissions and roles for each family member.

4. Set up chores for each child’s profile, and decide if the chores will be paid or unpaid. In our house, we have a system of paid chores and non-paid chores, so I LOVE this option!

:: You can choose to set a chore as a responsibility that is not paid to teach your child the importance of contributing to the family without getting paid.

:: If you choose to label a task as an extra paid chore, you’ll need to designate the amount of coins each chore is worth. Coins earned can be traded in for specified rewards within the app.

5. Set rewards for each child’s profile. Depending on your household system, there are options to set up a weekly allowance for chores, wishlist items (toys, screen time, etc.), or extra money.

Regardless, each reward requires a specified amount of coins that teaches children how to save up what they’ve earned from their hard work. Kids can even set up their own wishlists to practice setting long term goals for themselves.

6. Connect your children’s checking or savings bank accounts with the app, if so desired. Homey allows you to transfer the allowance or extra money earned directly to your child’s bank account.

I love this, because I think it’s SO important to teach kids real life financial skills at an early age, and I’d rather them make $3 mistakes now when they are little to hopefully prevent some $3,000 and $30,000 mistakes down the road.

7. Kids start doing chores, working towards their goals, and getting rewarded for their hard work through the Homey app! Each time a task is finished, they just take a photo of their progress or completion so that you know what got done at a glance. It’s that simple!

Go here to get started with the Homey app.

Win a FREE unlimited annual subscription to the Homey app!

The folks over at Homey decided to give away one FREE unlimited annual subscription to a one MoneySavingMom reader ($49.99 value) this week!

Just comment on this post about why you’d love to try the Homey app for your family. I will randomly pick one winner from all of the comments to win the annual subscription.

Enter to win a phone of your choice plus 6 months of service from Twigby! http://moneysavingmom.com/2017/05/enter-win-phone-choice-plus-6-months-service-twigby.html http://moneysavingmom.com/2017/05/enter-win-phone-choice-plus-6-months-service-twigby.html#comments Wed, 31 May 2017 19:02:18 +0000 http://moneysavingmom.com/?p=233776

(Note: This giveaway was sponsored by Twigby. Read our disclosure policy here.)

I’m so excited that I get to give away a FREE phone plus 6 free months of cell phone service to one reader!

There was such a great response to my completely honest review of Twigby last month, that the folks over at Twigby decided to do a giveaway for our readers!

In case you missed my completely honest review, Twigby is a company dedicated to providing fantastic phone service at great prices. If you are looking for a great deal on a phone — either for yourself or your child — I’d highly recommend checking out what Twigby has to offer.

What I love about Twigby:

  1. There is not a contract and there are no activation or termination fees. Unlike traditional cell phone companies, they give you the ability to create your own custom, prepaid plan — without a contract or an unnecessary activation fee.
  2. It’s affordable. When I visited the Twigby site for the first time, I was shocked at how affordable their plans were! Their basic phone plans start as low as $9 per month! They have a variety of plans, including those that offer unlimited texting and the option to include data. Check out their calculator here to see how much you could save by switching to Twigby.
  3. It’s flexible. My favorite part about their service (in addition to their great prices!) is that they offer plan flexibility with the ability to change plans or phones at any time for free.
  4. They offer free overage protection. You can rest easy in knowing that you will never be charged for overages without your go-ahead! You have complete control.
  5. They have a referral program. You can email your friends a special link and, if your friend signs up through your link, you’ll both automatically receive a $20 credit 45 days from your friend’s activation date! Read more about their referral program here.
  6. It’s super easy to get started. You don’t have to mess with going to a store and picking out a phone plan. You just go to their site, pick your phone plan and either switch your current phone over or get a new phone, and they get it all set up for you.
  7. They offer a variety of phones to choose from. You can choose a phone as basic as a flip phone or get something as fancy as an iPhone 5S or SE. Go here to check out all of their phone options.
  8. Coverage is good. We got to try out the Twigby phone service for two months and were very impressed with how great the coverage was. We never had one time that we had any issues with the coverage. Twigby customers use not one, but two of the nation’s largest nationwide networks!

Win a phone of your choice plus 6 months of free service from Twigby!!

One lucky MoneySavingMom.com reader will win a FREE phone of your choice and six months of FREE cell phone service (taxes and fees excluded).

Choose from any of their phones (including smartphone and iPhone options) and any data/minutes plan that best fits your needs.

Go here to enter this giveaway for your chance to win.

Winner will be selected in a random drawing from all entries received at the link above on or before June 15, 2017. Comments left directly on this post do not count as entries.

Save on Pura D’or thickening hair care products + a hair care giveaway! http://moneysavingmom.com/2017/05/save-pura-dor-hair-care-enter-win-bundle-hair-care-products.html http://moneysavingmom.com/2017/05/save-pura-dor-hair-care-enter-win-bundle-hair-care-products.html#comments Tue, 02 May 2017 19:48:04 +0000 http://moneysavingmom.com/?p=231325

(Note: This post was sponsored by 2-Minute Club. Read our disclosure policy here.)

If you struggle with thin and weak hair, Pura D’or might be a great product to try! Pura D’or shampoo and conditioner helps thicken, strengthen, and energize your hair from root to tip — which helps reduce hair thinning due to breakage.

There are so many factors that can contribute to thinning hair, including hormones, stress, diet, and even lower quality hair care products. Pura D’or aims to combat that in a natural, chemical-free way to bring life and volume back to your hair.

This best selling shampoo has a huge following and over 13,000 raving reviews of just how great this stuff works!

Highlights of this shampoo/conditioner set:

  • Blend of 17 key active ingredients help reduce hair loss due to breakage
  • Helps regenerate & revitalize follicles
  • Vitamin Infused
  • Revives damaged and distressed hair, leaving it healthier looking and smoother
  • Supports healthy scalp, regenerates hair, and revitalizes follicles
  • Adds body, increases volume, and thickens hair

Pura D’or is great for:

  • Thinning hair
  • Hair loss due to breakage
  • Frizzy hair
  • Distressed hair
  • Less hair in the drain due to breakage
  • Damaged and chemically treated, colored hair

I’ve enjoyed getting to try out Pura D’or and have been using it for the past 5-6 weeks and really like it.

I don’t struggle with thin or weak hair as I was blessed with my mom’s very thick hair. Changing my diet has made my hair even healthier. However, I do struggle with frizz and I do get my hair colored regularly and I blow dry it at least once a week.

Coloring your hair (even at a more natural salon) and blow-drying it (even once a week) can damage your hair over time. So I love using this shampoo and conditioner knowing that it is made with natural, organic, plant-based ingredients that will help to strengthen my hair and keep it healthy and smoother.

One thing I’ve noticed since I’ve started using Pura D’or  is that a little bit goes a very long way, so you only need to use a tiny amount when you wash your hair for it to get really clean and look really healthy.

It’s more expensive than typical shampoo you might buy at the grocery store, drug store, or big box store, but it lasts a lot, lot longer. In fact, one bottle should last for months and months — especially if you’re like me and only wash your hair every 5-6 days!

Save on Pura D’or hair care!

You already save 33% with membership pricing when you order through the 2-Minute Club, but on top of that, 2-Minute Club is offering MoneySavingMom.com readers an exclusive savings offer!

The first 100 people to use code MONEYSAVING at checkout will receive $20 off + free shipping on their first order of Pura D’Or shampoo and conditioner.

Just go here to get started and use your coupon code.

Win a bundle of Pura D’or products!

In addition to the savings offer, the folks over at 2-Minute Club are also giving away a Pura D’or hair care products bundle to one lucky MoneySavingMom.com reader! The bundle includes the pro organic shampoo and conditioner set plus argan oil!

How an Internet Friendship Changed My Life http://moneysavingmom.com/2017/04/internet-friendship-changed-life.html http://moneysavingmom.com/2017/04/internet-friendship-changed-life.html#comments Thu, 06 Apr 2017 20:35:19 +0000 http://moneysavingmom.com/?p=229246

(Note: This post is sponsored by B&H Publishing Group. Read our disclosure policy here.)

Lisa-Jo and I met online soon after I began blogging (maybe in 2008 0r 2009?). We had mutual friends, we read some of the same blogs, and we started to get to know one another a little bit from the internet.

We met briefly in person at the Relevant Conference in 2010. Little did I know at the time that this was a woman who was going to profoundly impact my life.

I actually arrived at that conference wounded and hurting from a recent internet friendship break-up. I remember distinctly feeling so jaded by internet friendships that I told myself, “I will never be close friends with another blogger again.”

So, I wanted to put up pretty strong walls at that conference just to be safe. But there was such warmth and authenticity and kindness oozing from the women at this conference that I just couldn’t keep those walls there for long!

Lisa-Jo was one such woman who I almost instantly fell in love with. She was honest and funny, but most of all, when you were talking with her, you could tell that she really, really, really cared about you and your soul.

Over the next few years, we saw each other at multiple conferences and got to know one another a little better. And each time, I fell more in love with her. I was still leery of internet friendships, but I couldn’t get enough of her warm personality, so more and more, I let my thick walls down and let myself begin trusting her.

In 2013, Lisa-Jo asked me to read a pre-release copy of her new book, Surprised By Motherhood. Now you have to know this: I get asked to read pre-release copies of books a lot. I usually say no because, well, you know there are things like laundry and dishes and kids to care for… and if I said yes to every request, I’d probably never get a chance to sleep! 🙂

But I said yes to Lisa-Jo because she’d been such a cheerleader of me and I was excited about the opportunity to support her. Little did I dream what God had in store for the future through that pre-release copy of her book!

I loved Surprised By Motherhood so very much that I wrote her and — uncharacteristically — asked her if there was any way I could help her promote it. I look back and know beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was God who prompted me to ask that!

Well, the email she sent back just blew me away. She shared with me about this huge vision she has to impact the culture in South Africa — where she grew up, where three of her siblings are adopted from, and where her parents still live and minister.

As she shared about this massive dream she had to encourage women around the globe to come together to change a community of kids in South Africa, I knew I had to tell my readers about it.

SouthAfrica-ScottWadePhotography-153 (1)

SouthAfrica-ScottWadePhotography-155

Lisa-Jo didn’t know I was going to blog about it. We hadn’t talked ahead of time about the best strategy or post time or anything like that.

She just put her post up, I followed up with a post encouraging you all to Fall in Love With the World Next Door, and then dozens upon dozens of our readers and blog friends shared those posts with their friends.

We were absolutely humbled and stunned and overwhelmed by the donations and emails that came in — from all over the world. Hundreds of you gave.

It was one of the most beautiful Valentine’s Days I’ve ever celebrated. Because of your giving hearts, a community center, veggie garden, and playground was funded for the Maubane community in South Africa.

It still gives me goosebumps to think about.

But I had this nagging feeling that this wasn’t the end of the road for my involvement in South Africa. My heart kept feeling a pull that we were supposed to do something more.

I didn’t know what that more looked like, but I just felt like we weren’t done there yet. Lisa-Jo felt the same way.

And then one day, she asked me, “Would you like to GO with me to South Africa?”

Even though it scared me so much, even though I’d never really traveled outside the US before, even though I have a huge fear of the unknown, and even though it meant an 18-hour plane ride there and back, I said yes!

 

As my long-time readers well know, that trip changed my life.

I went to South Africa with Lisa-Jo to investigate the work there. I thought I was going so that I could see the playground, the water point, and the community garden that our blogs had fundraised for.

I had no idea that I was going to fall madly in love with this country and come back home with a longterm dream and vision of how our business and family could come alongside and support the work of Take Action Ministry.

But that’s what happened. And it was pretty overwhelming and exciting all at once.

When I got back home, I proposed to Jesse that we would fund the operational expenses of the ministry out of our personal budget.

Even though he hadn’t traveled to South Africa with me (yet!), even though he hadn’t met the wonderful folks from Take Action Ministry (yet!), and even though he hadn’t experienced any of the amazing experiences I had or seen anything firsthand, he didn’t bat an eye.

He did the math, rearranged our budget, and said, “I’m all in!”

Jesse has supported me in this crazy dream that God has given me ever since then. However, this is no longer just my dream and my thing. South Africa has become our family’s calling

unnamed

Getting to go with my family and having Jesse and the kids fall in love, too, was one of the greatest experiences of my life. My friends in South Africa became their friends. My love for South Africa became their love. My strong and burning passion to make a difference in this country became their passion, too.

We’ve gotten to help build buildings and classrooms there, come alongside and encourage and support the locals, see amazing progress and change in the different Centres there in just a short few years, be a part of helping hundreds of kids have food and care and education every single day, and even take a group of readers to South Africa with us and have them fall in love with the country and the work there, too.

None of this would have happened if it weren’t for what started as an internet friendship with a woman named Lisa-Jo.

Lisa-Jo has shown me through her life what guilt-free, authentic relationship looks like. She’s walked it out as my friend.

And she’s the absolute perfect person to have written the brand-new book, Never Unfriended. This book is packed with encouragement and much-needed advice and encouragement for building and keeping lasting relationships with other women.

Deep, authentic relationships with other women is not something that is just reserved for a few, special, extroverted people. It’s something we all can experience.

And as someone who has struggled to build relationships, who has made many mistakes, and who has been hurt and burned in the past by other women, I can tell you that — for most of us — it takes work. It won’t just happen.

It takes being willing to step out of our comfort zones, show up, and not try to pretend we have it all together. It takes being uncomfortable, being honest, and being forgiving.

But it is so very, very worth it!

If you’ve struggled to develop meaningful relationships, if you’ve wished you could go deeper in your current relationships, if you’ve ever wondered whether authentic friendship was even possible, if you’ve felt lonely and left out, if you’ve been hurt or wounded in the past, Never Unfriended is for you.

Not sure if the book is for you? Get a sampler of the book that allows you to read the first two chapters for FREE. Just go here, enter you name and e-mail address, and the PDF of the sampler will be e-mailed to you!

Want to win a copy of the book + a $50 DaySpring gift card for you and a friend??

I’m excited because two MoneySavingMom.com readers will each receive a FREE copy of the Never Unfriended book and a $50 DaySpring gift card, plus an extra prize pack to give to a friend!

JellyTelly is a kids’ streaming video app that allows you to instantly stream hundreds of hours of fun, family-friendly videos and movies for kids about God, the Bible, and faith.

JellyTelly was started by VeggieTales® and What’s in the Bible? creator Phil Vischer – a trusted voice in Christian children’s entertainment. He and the JellyTelly team work with the best voices in Christian family entertainment to provide new and classic shows the whole family will love.

We signed up for JellyTelly last year and our kids have loved using some of their daily movie time gathered around the computer or TV watching shows from it. I love that it offers a wide variety of fun and engaging entertainment options for kids, but that I don’t have to worry whether the content is safe or kid-friendly.

If you’ve been reading here for a long time, you know that our kids LOVE the What’s In The Bible? videos, so of course, those are some of our favorites from JellyTelly. But they also have many other great videos — including VeggieTales®, Hillsong Kids, the Jesus Storybook Bible, and many more!

In fact, they currently offer 1553 different episodes from 115 different shows — enough to keep kids entertained for a very long time! You can play the videos directly on a laptop or desktop computer or through the JellyTelly streaming video app.

The JellyTelly app is available for iOS, Android, Roku, and Kindle. We’ve used both the online site on our desktop computer and the app on our phones and not had any issues with either.

If you watch a show and you or your kids really love it, you can choose to click “Favorite” on it to add it to your My Favorites list. Your Playlist and Favorites list can be accessed from the menu button.

JellyTelly wants to encourage families to make screen time more meaningful. You can sign up at the bottom of any page on their site for their free weekly 5-minute family video devotional designed to foster important conversations with your kids about their faith.

Enter to win a $5,000 home renovation from Lowe’s! http://moneysavingmom.com/2017/02/save-3-purchase-next-home-enter-win-5000-home-renovation-lowes.html http://moneysavingmom.com/2017/02/save-3-purchase-next-home-enter-win-5000-home-renovation-lowes.html#respond Sat, 04 Feb 2017 17:30:44 +0000 http://moneysavingmom.com/?p=224050

Save 3% on the purchase of your next home + enter to win a $5,000 home renovation from Lowe's!

Are you thinking about buying or selling a home in the near future? If so, GoldenKey might be a great option for you!

GoldenKey is a commission free real estate company backed by Lowe’s Home Improvement. They allow home buyers to get a 3% commission rebate on the purchase of a home after the sale — the amount they would have traditionally paid the realtor. Customers can also sell a home commission-free.

GoldenKey recognized the value that a realtor brings to the complex home buying and selling process, but they felt that the industry’s commission-based model was outdated and in need of an updated approach that helped consumers.

GoldenKey’s mission is to turn agents into allies and flip the traditional commission-based realtor model on its head. They seek to help home buyers avoid going into debt to pay closing costs and commission fees, preserve & increase their home equity, and help them build greater personal wealth.

GoldenKey is a unique solution that provides access to comprehensive and tailored realtor services without paying the high commission. Here’s how it works:

  • Home buyers and sellers can choose from one of three tailored packaged realtor services — all for a clear upfront one-time fee that is paid upon closing.
  • If a customer doesn’t need an entire package, they can select the individual jobs they need as one-off services — such as arranging a house viewing or negotiating an offer.
  • The most comprehensive package that GoldenKey offers costs a maximum of $3,199, which is an attractive alternative to paying the 3% commission fee that is normal when hiring a realtor.
  • With a straight forward and clear fee structure, prospective buyers and sellers can get all the assistance they need and receive at least a 3% reimbursement of their home’s value upon completion.

GoldenKey’s average customer saves over $12,000 when they buy or sell a home using their service!

All of its agents are fully qualified and most are contracted workers, which means they are also able to work for other real estate companies. By joining GoldenKey’s network an agent can choose to accept a job if they have the time, safe in the knowledge that they will be paid for the services they provide.

GoldenKey’s website and mobile application works like a digital marketplace, connecting home buyers and sellers to local certified realtors in return for an affordable upfront fee.

Would you like to win a $5,000 home renovation from Lowe’s?

To celebrate their recent million dollar funding from Lowe’s, GoldenKey is running a contest for one person to win a $5,000 home renovation from Lowe’s!

Just use the form below to enter for your chance to win.

Enter to win an exclusive mystery deal from Gwynnie Bee! http://moneysavingmom.com/2016/12/enter-win-exclusive-mystery-deal-gwynnie-bee.html http://moneysavingmom.com/2016/12/enter-win-exclusive-mystery-deal-gwynnie-bee.html#comments Wed, 14 Dec 2016 21:01:55 +0000 http://moneysavingmom.com/?p=220427

I’m super excited that Gwynnie Bee is running an exclusive mystery deal giveaway for my readers right now!!

Gwynnie Bee is a clothing rental subscription service for women sizes 10-32. They are similar to Stitch Fix in many ways, but different than Stitch Fix because instead of having items sent to you to try on and possibly consider buying, they are a “lending service” where they lend you clothes to wear for as long as you’d like and then you ship them back and they’ll send you more. It’s almost like what Netflix used to be, only for clothes!

I recently did a completely honest review of Gwynnie Bee, and overall, I was very impressed! I love that you know exactly how much you are going to spend each month, and that it’s a way to have an ever-rotating closet without ever needing to leave the house to go shopping.

Yes, it’s pricey and not for everyone (especially those who are regularly thrift store shoppers!), but this might be a great way to be able to find lots of cute clothes that are in your size at a set price every single month.

Want to try Gwynnie Bee for yourself?

Head over to their Deal of the Season page to enter a fun mystery deal giveaway! Everyone is a winner, and will win one of these three offers:

  • Free one-month trial to try their service for free
  • Free one-month trial + free additional outfit
  • Free one-month trial + free additional outfit + holiday clutch

Go here to enter the Gwynnie Bee Deal of the Season Giveaway and see which mystery deal you win!

Giveaway ends on December 20, 2016.

Enter to win a FREE Life Application Bible!

As parents we want to connect with our kids on all levels. We want to help them grow physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

But this can be difficult when sometimes seemingly easy conservations such as, “How was your day?” end in one-word road blocks, “Fine.” Finding a catalyst, that conversation starter or way to relate is vital.

If “How was school?” results in a dead end conversation, how can we go deeper or even begin to approach something as life-altering as relationships, faith or God?

Enter the Life Application Study Bibles for tweens. This isn’t just a “grown-up” Bible made simpler for kids.

The Guys and Girls Life Application Study Bibles were created to address the everyday challenges tween guys and tween girls face. Though there are similar touch-points in the two different Bibles, they actually were created separately with specific focuses.

The Guys and Girls Life Application Study Bibles are jam-packed with notes and stories that bring the Bible into the tween’s world. The Bibles are great for personal study, providing a guide for how tweens can not only approach, but understand and live out the truths on its pages. And, they are filled with questions that are perfect conversations starters to facilitate parents and tweens diving deeper in the the Scriptures together.

The covers come in trendy styles using appealing colors like purple with teal-stitched flowers for girls and iridium and superhero green for guys. There are even covers that glow in the dark. How cool is that??

Looking for unique stocking stuffer ideas this year? Check out Gabriel’s Good Tidings!

The mission at Gabriel’s Good Tidings is to create high-quality, boutique style products that help women find essential items and brighten their space. However, the most important thing is not the items they make; it is the jobs the business creates.

Purchasing from Gabriel’s Good Tidings not only guarantees a beautiful, handmade, boutique-style item in your mailbox, but it provides work for women. Purchasing with purpose blesses families, and they are grateful for each customer.

gabriel2

The dream of Gabriel’s Good Tidings began decades ago as Amy sat with her mom and grandmothers learning to sew.  As she spent many of her younger years in the sewing rooms of these women, she began to develop a love for fabrics and creating products.

She imagined the day when she would create products that people wanted to purchase. Little did she know that her aspirations would one day provide for her family, support other women working from home, and grow into a thriving business.

Amy’s business started small and slow in 2013 with a $50 “loan” from her joint banking account with her husband. As Amy began to sell items, she continued to invest in materials for new products and “bank rolled” all of her earnings. The business grew steadily and Amy was able to be the sole breadwinner for her home while her husband completed graduate school in 2014.

In 2015, the business grew beyond what Amy could manage alone and she knew she had a choice to make.  Either keep things small and do it all on her own, or find help.

She made the very intentional decision to grow the business with the purpose of providing work for as many women as possible. These are women who, for the most part, are otherwise unable to work outside their home. Without these sweet ladies, this business would likely have closed its doors years ago.

Gabriel’s Good Tidings most popular product is the LippyClip™, a lip balm holder designed to perfectly hold Chapstick, Blistex, or Burt’s Bees. Earlier this year, Amy also released the LippyLoop™, which is a unique design for EOS sphere lip balms. Other complementary products are the keychain wristlets, nail file sleeves, lanyards and hair tie packs.

A Simple Outfit Idea for Fall (+ have you tried the new Dry Spray deodorants?) http://moneysavingmom.com/2016/11/favorite-fall-tunic-amazon-wear.html http://moneysavingmom.com/2016/11/favorite-fall-tunic-amazon-wear.html#comments Tue, 01 Nov 2016 20:15:42 +0000 http://moneysavingmom.com/?p=216707

My Favorite Fall Tunic

Sponsored post by Mirum Shopper.

I LOVE Fall — not only because of the beautiful leaves on the trees, the cooler weather, and all things pumpkin, but also because it means it’s leggings, boots, and scarves weather!

After making the move from Kansas to Tennessee two years ago, I have to say that I’m still not used to it being so warm in October and November (hello, it was a high of 83 degrees today!)

Part of me loves that I don’t have to get all bundled up in a coat and gloves and ear muffs to go outside, but I’ve struggled to figure out how to pull off cute fall-like looks that I don’t end up sweating in because I’m too warm in the middle of the day!

My Favorite Fall Tunic
I bought this tunic recently and absolutely love it. It comes in five different colors and is a perfect fall transition top.

I love how it fits me. It’s flow-y and figure flattering without being all baggy or drape-y.

(Though Silas did proceed to tell me the first time I wore it, “You look like you’ve gained some weight, Mom!” Oh the joys of living with little people who say whatever they think!! :))

My Favorite Fall Tunic
I can wear it dressed up with the boots I got last weekend, black leggings, and a statement necklace. I think this is a more sophisticated look.

(Pardon the pony tail that doesn’t really exude sophistication! I was running short on time the day I took these photos, so a pony tail just had to do!)

My Favorite Fall Tunic

I can easily change up the look of the tunic by wearing a knit infinity scarf and riding boots. This is a bit more of a casual look and it’s very comfortable while also still being cute!

My Favorite Fall Tunic

You could also change things up with a belt or a vest, too. What would YOU pair this tunic with? I’d love to hear!

My Favorite Fall Tunic

I especially love this tunic, because it’s lightweight enough that it keeps you warm on chilly mornings and evenings, but isn’t too thick so that you end up hot and sweaty halfway through the day.

If you struggle with sometimes finding that you’ve worn the wrong outfit on an unseasonably warm fall day, CVS wants to help you keep the sweat away when you dress in one too many layers. They offer several different brands of Dry Spray Deodorants, which are known for going on instantly dry and keeping you fresh all day long.

My Favorite Fall Tunic

I have to say, I’ve never tried Dry Spray deodorants before, but I was really impressed with these. I especially love the Degree DrySpray Sheer Powder. It’s so easy to put on, you don’t have to worry about getting deodorant stains on your clothes, it smells great, and it keeps you feeling fresh all day long!

Plus, through November 5th, CVS is running a buy one, get one 50% off sale on select Dove, Degree, and AXE Dry Spray Deodorants! You’ll just need your Extra Care Card to get this deal.

Would you like to win a $100 CVS Gift Card?

I’ve got a $100 CVS gift card to give away! To enter to win, head over to this post on my Facebook Page and leave a comment sharing which dry spray deodorant you’d like to try. I’ll choose a winner from the comments to win a $100 CVS gift card!

My 3 Favorite Everyday Hair Styles (in 10 minutes or less!) http://moneysavingmom.com/2016/10/3-favorite-everyday-hair-styles-10-minutes-less.html http://moneysavingmom.com/2016/10/3-favorite-everyday-hair-styles-10-minutes-less.html#comments Thu, 20 Oct 2016 18:29:08 +0000 http://moneysavingmom.com/?p=215599

Sponsored post by Mirum Shopper.

So, you all know that I’ve said for a long time that I’m not much of a fashionista at all. However, this year, in an effort to not let myself live stifled by long-held mantras like, “I’m not a fashionista”, I’ve been challenging myself to try a lot of new things — like new clothes and styles and hair styles.

You know how I love quick and easy and simple. So when it comes to new hair styles, my biggest criteria is that it has to be something I can do in 10 minutes or less.

And I’m so excited to report that I’ve found a number of looks that I love that meet that “Must Take 10 Minutes or Less” criteria!

screenshot-2016-10-20-10-51-09

Today, I wanted to share three of these looks with you, in case you’re looking for some new hair inspiration:

1. A Side Braid

This is a simple way to dress up any hair style. You can do a regular braid or a Dutch Braid.

I like to wear my hair like this when I have some waves or curls leftover from the day before (if I curled my hair). I just pin it back with two bobby pins on the side.

You can also pull it back into a pony tail or back into a messy bun like I have it here and here.

screen-shot-2016-10-19-at-12-51-20-pm

2. A Classic Bun

I have fallen in love with this style. It’s so, so easy to do.

This works best on Day 3 or Day 4 hair. I use some dry shampoo to help give a little more texture and help it stay better (this is my favorite dry shampoo).

You can pull it straight back and up into a bun or do a side part and then a bun. I have both looks shown above.

I recommend using lots of bobby pins and hair spray (this is my favorite hair spray).

Want to see a video on how to do this look or want some great Messy Bun ideas? Watch this video here (I did Messy Bun #5 in the photos above).

My 3 Go-To Everyday Hair Looks

3. Straight & Sleek

I’m so excited that I’ve finally figured out how to get my hair really straight and sleek. And I love wearing my hair this way — and this is one of Jesse’s favorite ways for me to wear my hair! If you’re interested, I wrote a step-by-step tutorial on how I get my hair to look like this here.

Once I’ve straightened my hair, it only takes me a few minutes of running the straightener through my hair again every day over the next few days and it looks straight and sleek and stays all day long.

screenshot-2016-10-20-10-48-50

A Textured Look Hair Tutorial

Walgreens asked me if I’d try out a textured look with their tutorial and recommended products. I actually can’t remember the last time I’ve tried to do a textured look, so it was fun to experiment and try this out.

Here’s what I did to get the textured look above (with thanks to Walgreens for the tutorial):

  1. First, I washed and conditioned my hair with the TRESemmé® Moisture Rich Shampoo and Conditioner. I especially loved the shampoo — it left my hair feeling so soft and silky.
  2. Then, I towel-dried my hair and prepped my hair for styling by applying Nexxus® Diametress Lavish Body Gel Spray.My 3 Go-To Everyday Hair Looks
  3. I blow-dried my hair a little and then put it in a few loose braids and let it air dry overnight.
  4. In the morning, I took out the braids and tousled my hair with my hands and put some Dove Refresh+Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo on my roots to give it a little bit more texture. This was so easy to use and I really liked how this dry shampoo worked.
  5. Then, I sprayed Nexxus® Comb Thru Touchable Hold Finishing Mist, added a side braid and pinned it back, and then used the Nume Curling Wand to add some wave.

screenshot-2016-10-20-10-44-22
I was happy with the finished look. It’s definitely very different than how I usually wear my hair, but it was fun to try something new. Jesse wasn’t so sure when he first saw it, but he decided that it was growing on him. 🙂

When I went to record my Facebook Live this morning, people kept commenting on how amazing my hair looked. So even though I’m not sure that I love the look, a LOT of other people seemed to really, really like it.

gysf_500x500_equity_090816
Want some more hair inspiration? Walgreens put together the Get Your Style Fix tutorial page. There are five different hair styles to choose from: Curls, Volume, Texture, Smooth, and Shine. Each style has easy to follow step-by-step instructions, plus a video tutorial!

Wondering what products to use? Walgreens also has product recommendations for each look on that page.

Plus, right now Walgreens is helping you save on these hair styling products! Through October 29th, you’ll get 3,000 Balance Reward Points when you purchase 3 Nexxus®, TRESemmé®, Dove or Suave® products.

When Meggan Wood’s first daughter was born, she found herself frustrated by the disposable, cartoon printed diaper bags that filled the shelves at her favorite retails stores. Determined to create a bag that women wanted to carry — one that stood the test of time and life changes — Meggan crafted a gorgeous leather tote that doubled on the sly as a diaper bag, thanks to a genius two-in-one removable, washable 12-pocket inner organizer.

Lily Jade now offers a variety of full grain leather handbags that can be worn cross-body, over the shoulder, or even as a backpack! Lily Jade uses quality leather that only gets nicer with age. This makes it a bag for a lifetime, and for all seasons of motherhood.

As I’ve mentioned, I recently have been trying out Rocksbox — a jewelry membership service dedicated to making your life easier and more stylish. Their goal is to make accessorizing with jewelry fun again.

As someone who likes to look nice and presentable, but who is by no means a fashionista, I wasn’t sure what I’d think of this service.

I’ve really ended up enjoying it — mostly because I hate shopping, so this made it incredibly convenient and easy to accessorize my outfits! I also loved that the stylist helped me know which pieces could be worn together, because truthfully I’m often wondering if I’m breaking “the jewelry rules” when I wear a bracelet, earring, and necklace combination that didn’t come packaged together. 😉

{Want to read more of my thoughts? Go here to read my completely honest experience with Rocksbox.}

My Completely Honest Review of Rocksbox

Here’s how to get started with Rocksbox:

1. Sign up for a Rocksbox account. (If you use coupon code moneysavingmomxoxo at checkout, you’ll get your first month entirely FREE!)

2. Answer a few questions about your likes and dislikes. For instance, I said that I mostly wear silver jewelry and don’t want them to send me rings (because I only wear two ever — my wedding ring and a 10-year anniversary ring).

3. Add pieces to your Wish List. This is a way for your stylist to get a better idea of your likes and dislikes. They recommend that you add at least 15 pieces to your Wish List. Your stylist will do their best to choose at least one piece from your Wish List to include in your box. Rocksbox sets are curated for you based on your Style Profile and your Wish List.

My Completely Honest Review of Rocksbox

4. Within a week or so, you’ll receive a box of jewelry. Your box will contain three different pieces of jewelry. You can keep this box of jewelry for as long as you like.

5. When you’re ready for a new box of jewelry, just ship the current box back. Within another week or so, you’ll receive another box of jewelry. (Note: Be sure to ship all the pieces back. If you keep a piece, you will be billed for it as that signifies to them that you wanted to purchase it.)

6. You can keep and wear your Rocksbox pieces for as long as you like. You can return your box anytime, as often as you like, and they’ll send out a new set right away. You pay the same monthly membership fee $19/month) regardless of how often you exchange your box.

7. You can purchase any of the jewelry you receive at a discounted price. You’ll get a $10 Shine credit every month that you can use toward the purchase of the jewelry. This credit does not roll over each month.

Toca Boca — the developer of a multitude of popular kids’ apps that parents all over the world love so much — just launched a brand new service called Toca TV!

Toca TV is a video streaming service for kids that delivers thousands of curated videos in a 100% ad-free, safe, and fun environment. Like all Toca Boca apps, Toca TV was designed from the kid’s perspective by testing it with hundreds of kids globally and is designed specifically with kids ages 5 to 9 in mind.

Win a year's subscription to Toca TV!

When you download the Toca TV app, you’ll have access to a catalog of thousands of videos — and there are new videos being added every single week. My kids were especially excited about the Minecraft gameplay videos and the DIY crafts and recipes!

Plus, Toca TV offers exclusive Toca Boca videos only available on Toca TV — brand new kid-hosted shows, animated originals and videos featuring the Toca Boca characters kids love. And, if your kids are anything like mine, they will love that Toca TV offers kids options to get in on the fun and film their own videos with the Toca TV recording tool and silly animated filters.

We try to be so careful at our house what we let our kids watch and what apps we let them access, but to be honest, there are so many different apps and videos out there and sometimes it can feel overwhelming.

And, as you know, I’ve been incredibly frustrated in the past, that my kids have been exposed to inappropriate content and commercials while watching family-friendly channels on YouTube.

I love that Toca Boca’s desire is to make sure parents don’t have to worry about kids being exposed to inappropriate content. They don’t rely on algorithms and they curate all of their content using a scorecard. Each video is watched by a member of the Toca TV team to make sure it’s right for kids.

Best of all, there is no third-party advertising or sponsored content! They only stream videos that will make your child laugh, be inspired, and simply have fun!

Win a year's subscription to Toca TV!

Since this service says that it’s for 5 to 9-year-olds, I didn’t expect my girls would like it. But I was wrong.

I let Silas check it out and he was almost instantly engaged with it. Soon, I heard him laughing and have a blast watching the videos. And then, I hear him say, “There are nail art videos!! Kaitlynn will love these!”

That’s all it took for Kaitlynn to come running over to check it out. And pretty soon, Kathrynne was right there with them and they were all gathered around the iPhone watching the videos and laughing together.

I was surprised and excited! It’s becoming harder and harder to find videos that all three kids really enjoy together, so I’ve been so impressed with how much they are loving Toca TV.

I especially love that it’s basically an endless supply of new videos — so they have lots and lots and lots of videos they can check out during their iPhone/iPad time every week! And I love that they can enjoy them together!

Want to Try Out Toca TV For FREE?

You can try 3 free sessions of Toca TV when you download it from the App store for iPad or iPhone. After that, it’s $4.99 per month (you have the ability to cancel your monthly subscription at any time).
