Luvs: More Savings Than Ever Before

When you’re an experienced mom you don’t trust something just because it costs more, you trust that it works! I have always been a fan of saving money, and Luvs has always provided me with the best value when it comes to diapers! When I first became a mom, I purchased more expensive competitive brands simply because I thought they would work better. After a friend of mine (a mother of three boys) told me about Luvs, I figured they would be worth a shot. I mean, who wouldn’t want to save a few bucks? After that day I never looked back! Luvs has been my go-to brand since that day! Well, now Luvs is offering an even greater value with new lower prices! Just when we thought they couldn’t get any better! Has Luvs ever let me down before? OF COURSE NOT! It is no wonder they are the official diaper of experienced parents! Luvs has always been committed to providing parents with value. With their money-back guarantee, Luvs wants to be sure that you get the quality and the savings your baby (and your wallet) deserves.  Check out your favorite retailer to find newer low prices on all Luvs products!luvs_w_nightlock_plus_logo_480

How to Launch Your Teen’s Career in Technology: A Parent’s Guide to the T in STEM Education

This is a guest post written by Melissa Hart.

As a mom to twin girls, I want to make sure they are prepared for the future in the best way possible. I hope my daughters will grow up knowing they can do anything they set their mind to do. When I became pregnant two years ago, I left my full-time job to pursue freelance work as a writer and marketing consultant, which led me to a special book project designed to help parents like me prepare our children for future careers in the IT industry. Titled “How to Launch Your Teen’s Career in Technology: A Parent’s Guide to the T in STEM Education,” the book is written by Charles Eaton, a father of four children and CEO of Creating IT Futures, a nonprofit that enables people to improve their lives through employment in the IT industry. Easy-to-read and inspiring, this guide is full of practical advice and resources for helping young people succeed in STEM (Science Math Engineering Technology) education.

The guide gives an overview of the many career opportunities available right now. One cool feature is profiles of real people who use technology in their jobs (myself included). Eaton works to dispel the myths around technology careers – e.g., students must be good at math or love computer programing – and emphasizes that it’s more important to think like a technologist than a technician. What is a “Technologist?” The term refers to the overall traits that make up a forward-thinking person, beyond just the skills that “techies” share.  For instance, a technologist:  

  • Thinks strategy first
  • Has a passion for solving problems
  • Sees technology in a constructive context
  • Believes tech is about humans, not hardware
  • Values respect, cooperation and collaboration

Bring Your Child’s Room Theme to Life

This is a guest post provided by Decor Brilliance

There’s nothing more fun than decorating a child’s room or creating a nursery from scratch. It can be overwhelming and costly but picking a theme is a great way to wrangle all of your décor ideas. Do you already have a theme picked out? If not, check out these top children’s room themes:

Children’s Room Theme Ideas: Zoo/Jungle, Floral/Garden, Nautical, Mountains/Wilderness, Under the Sea, Circus, Fairytale, Racetrack or Sports

Once you have a theme, it’s time to bring it to life and a room’s walls is the place to start.1.png

Make the Walls a Focal Point

Walls take up a lot of real estate in rooms so it’s important to use them in your decorating. Traditionally, wallpaper is viewed as a trend of the past, there are elements of it that can bring a room or office space from drab to fab. But who has time to deal with the labor involved in wallpaper application and the residue it leaves behind. Wall murals allow you to transform ANY room on your own with no residue left behind.When picking a wall mural for your wall, there are a few things to consider:

Style: You’ve picked a theme, so let’s stick to it! After browsing countless murals, it’s hard not to want to change things up. But you can be creative – so think outside of the box. If your theme is nautical, you can consider a mural with sailboats, a beach or ocean scene, or even a custom real-life photo that aligns with the water or beach.

 Color: Much like the paint on your walls, a wall mural will have to work with the other pieces in your room. A good rule of thumb is keeping your main pieces (furniture, walls, carpet/rugs) in either a warm or cool colors and then accessorizing with accent items in either color scheme. Don’t forget! If you’re not freshly painting the room walls, you will want to consider a mural that works with the existing wall colors.

 Longevity: Sure, it’s not as permanent as wallpaper, but selecting a wall mural that can stick around a few years will make it worth it even more. For example, loud patterns may not be your thing – so avoid a busy look and swap for something cleaner and lighter.2.pngReady to be brilliant?

Your time is precious (and so is your wallet). Skip wallpaper and pick a stunning wall mural that’s easy to install and leaves no residue.

Why We Love Debutant Designs

Three (almost four, yikes) years ago when my daughter was born we had the hardest time finding an adorable newborn outfit for her photoshoot. Well, until we stumbled upon Debutant Designs. With hundreds of adorable designs, owner Jennifer Landry hand makes all of her crochet pieces! Since then, Debutant Designs has been our go-to for all of our crocheting needs. Since Kinsley’s nursery theme was owls, we ordered a simple pink and green owl hat for her newborn photoshoot. It was a hit with everyone!

Jennifer Landry started her crochet journey 7 years ago and opened Debutant Designs in 2011. Since Jennifer was diagnosed with MS, she wanted to do something with her spare time. She spends hours each day making sure that her designs are nothing less than perfect. Although her newborn photography outfits are stunning, she has tons of other products that we have come to love. Just recently, Jennifer made my daughter Kinsley a custom crochet doll. Everything about the doll was perfect down to her rosy red cheeks and beautiful blue eyes! We have also purchased several scarfs for fall and adorable headbands. Jennifer can also make blankets, hats, baby slippers, and so much more! unnamed (1).jpgThere is nothing that we DON’T love about Jennifer and her company. Everything we have ever asked for has been beautiful and made to last! The best part? All of her products ship anywhere in the US!

Check out her new blog, visit her shop on etsy, or head on over to her facebook page for more information!

Ready To Upgrade Your Car? Cars.com Has You Covered!

THIS IS A SPONSORED POST

When my daughter was born, everything was perfect. We had everything we needed and lots of space. However as she started to grow, her stuff began to multiply. Before I knew it, I was a soccer mom and had no room in my car for any of her afterschool activity gear!  Since I am in my early twenties I wanted something new and updated , however I needed something with much more space than my tiny little Altima could hold.

I spend hours searching online for great deals, and even drove around town looking at different makes and models. After doing a ton of research, a friend of mine told me about Cars.com! Cars.com was the perfect place for me to learn important facts about the cars I was looking into purchasing. They have information available for SUVs, Sedans, Coupes, Crossovers, Sports Cars, Mini Vans, Trucks, and much more! I could also search for cars near me, while comparing prices and features. In my case I wanted a new car, and planned on sticking with a Nissan. After typing in my budget and other details, Cars.com pulled up all of the vehicles that fit my criteria!

Within seconds of using Cars.com, I found a Nissan Pathfinder that happened to be under my budget! Not only was I able to read about the features and see photos of the vehicle, but I was also given the option to contact the seller directly with any questions I may have had. For example, the Nissan Pathfinder listing displayed estimated mileage, transmission information, and an estimated payment calculator. Since this vehicle was within driving distance, I was able to schedule an appointment for a test drive that very week!

Going above and beyond, Cars.com employs several certified child passenger safety technicians and offer car seat checks! This was such a relief to hear! Not only was I in the market for a new vehicle, but Cars.com went a step further to ensure me that my daughter would be safe and comfortable in the back! I would definitely suggest Cars.com to anyone who is in the market for a new vehicle. It was quick, easy, and most importantly it saved me a ton of money! What would have normally taken me months, only took me a few days! Cars.com is definitely the way to go!Classified-Ventures-end-is-near

Boost Your Breast Milk Supply With The Help Of Mommy Knows Best

This is a guest post provided by Mommy Knows Best

As a nursing mother, you’re busy trying to take care of your little one, along with all of your other day-to-day responsibilities. In all the rush, it can be easy to forget your own self-care and when you’re nursing, it’s more important than ever to take care of yourself. If your milk production is not where you want it to be, it can take a toll on you… Trying to figure out the right, natural, and healthy solution for you and your baby. Herbs like blessed thistle, fenugreek seed, and goat’s rue have become widely used because of their natural properties in helping boost lactation. The beauty and benefit of modern science is the natural herbs that have been used for generations to help boost a mother’s breast milk supply can be packed into one simple supplement. This is the key to the Lactation Supplement from Mommy Knows Best; By combining fenugreek seed, blessed thistle, and fennel seed, mothers who are breast-feeding can potentially see an increase in breast milk production in as little as 24 to 48 hours — safely and naturally.

Mommy Knows Best’s lactation supplement is produced in the United States, following strict GMP guidelines, and uses a special blend of high-quality herbs with no artificial ingredients. The supplement also includes the important omega-3 fatty acid, DHA, which is essential to your baby’s healthy brain and eye development. Breastfeeding mothers have reported to us that they’ve noticed an increase in milk production in as little as two days after using these supplements. One mom reported she had lactation failure, but after taking our Goat’s Rue Vegetarian Capsules, she went from 3 ozs per session to 7-8 ozs per session (every 3-4 hours). A mother to newborn twins shared with us recently that using our Lactation Supplement helped her produce 5 ounces more milk per day after only three days of taking the supplement.  In excitement, she told us “they were almost 100 percent breastfed today!” A week later, she reported, “I’m pumping way more, about 3-8 ounces daily, and can feel things filling up way sooner. I usually pump every 3-4 hours but can feel that I’m getting much fuller around 2-2 1/2 hours.” However, here at Mommy Knows Best we know that taking a supplement 4 times a day is not always the ideal situation. That’s why we made our Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Lactation Cookie Mix as a yummy and discreet way to improve a mom’s breast milk supply. This mix is super easy and quick to make; just add butter, water, and an egg to the mix and stir it up. Get them in the oven and a few minutes later, and you’ve got warm oatmeal chocolate chip cookies to enjoy. You may have to hide them from your family, though!aaaaNew mom J.Q. told us how the cookies helped her when she was having difficulty with her milk production, explaining “I’ve eaten these cookies the past few nights and I’ve already seen a bit of an increase in my milk production! These cookies are absolutely delicious, too!” Women have been using all these essential herbs for centuries to boost milk production for a reason — it gets results. And if it’s formulated in an allergy friendly supplement or cookie mix like we do here at Mommy Knows Best, all the better for you and your baby. You get the satisfaction of increasing your milk supply for your little one knowing you’re using a natural, time-tested, and allergen-free solution.

Saving Money With Skout Deals

THIS IS A SPONSORED POST

Shopping is by far one of my biggest weaknesses. That’s why anytime I can save a quick buck, I am all about it! I really hit the jackpot when I found Skout Deals! All I have to do is browse a category or search a keyword, and all nearby deals that fit my criteria appear! The best thing about Skout Deals, is that it is a mobile app! I don’t need to print the coupons out before I head to the store. I simply shop, pull up my app, and show it to the cashier! Skout Deals finds merchants that are nearby by using your device’s current location. This has come in super handy when I forget to check for deals ahead of time. I open the app and the shop I am in is usually right on top. There are currently over two hundred and twenty two thousand merchants in the Skout Deals database, with thousands more being added daily. That means I almost always find an awesome deal no matter where I am shopping.PicMonkey Collage.jpgMerchants in the Skout Deals database update update their deals frequently. This means that thousands of discounts, coupons, and freebies are always at my fingertip. Most deals are 25% off or more and the app automatically keeps track of my savings. After using it for a few months, I can literally watch the savings rack up! I can also bookmark deals to use later, and Skout Deals will email me when they are about to expire! Unlike other savings apps, these have a lot of my favorite brands! It is usually super hard to find deals for Target, but of course Skout Deals has seven of them just for this week! Some of their other merchants include Toys R Us, PetSmart, Zales, Victoria’s Secret, Sears, and even Pier 1 Imports! Have you ever tried to find a discount code for Victoria’s Secret? Speaking from experience, it isn’t easy! Skout Deals also has a Shopping List option. I can save an item to my shopping list and Skout Deals will notify me when a deal on that item becomes available in my area! I could go on and on about how easy and convenient Skout Deals is to use and how wide their selections are, but the surprise freebies really put this app above competitors! I mean seriously, who doesn’t loves free stuff? The more I use the app,  the greater my odds of discovering surprise freebies. So while I am saving money, I am increasing my chances of getting some goodies from my favorite stores!PicMonkey Collage

How To Save Money On Moving Expenses

This is a guest post provided by Attention To Detail Moving

Whether you are moving away from home, to a new city, or even a new area, moving is inherently expensive. In addition to the new security deposit and the first and last month’s’ rent, there are the costs of packing and moving your belongings. Fortunately, there are a few ways to save money on moving expenses.

  1. Declutter: You will need to sort your things anyway, so make sure to get rid of things that you don’t need- which may or may not include old furniture. Having less to move will save you on moving costs and hassle, and you can even earn some money by holding a garage sale or selling some of old stuff online.
  2. Bargain Hunt for Cheap Movers: With a bit of research and critical thinking, you can find a moving company that has the best service for your needs for the lowest price. Consider whether you want to be charged by hour or by mile- this may depend on traffic- and plan your move accordingly as you survey moving companies.  Hollywood, for instance, is a high traffic area so if you aren’t moving far, you may wish to avoid moving during weekday rush hour.
  3. Scavenge: The cost of moving boxes can quickly add up. Instead of buying all of your boxes, try to repurpose some used ones. Ask your co-workers to save boxes from the printer paper, and check with your local stores to see if they have any clean cardboard boxes that they are willing to give. With a bit of luck, you may be able to cross moving boxes off your expense list altogether.

Change can be tough, but a bit of extra foresight, planning and a bit of bargain hunting can make you move with peace of mind and a bit of extra cash in your wallet.
