I was not incredibly happy with my past organization system for coupons. My normal day at the grocery store consisted of me digging through a too small envelope with many coupons becoming disorganized as I dug. Sometimes through my digging, coupons would get lost and fall upon the floor. My good deed to helping my family save was becoming a huge hassle! This did not save me any time and it left me feeling slightly frustrated.
I learned about The Couponizer and was given an opportunity to review it myself. Basically the Couponizer is a fantastic organizational tool created by Amy Bergin with the help of her husband; she set out to help us save time and money to make our lives a bit easier!
It’s really easy to use! So, let me enlighten you on how it works!
First things first, you need to go through your local coupons ads or wherever else you happen to get those wonderful money saving deals and clip or print out your coupons!
Next you can use the CoupStacker! This allows you to pre-sort your coupons by categories. I found that this saved me so much time and the idea of it is pure genius.
After you are finished clipping with the nifty included scissors and categorizing with the CoupStacker, you can now open your Couponizer book. Now is when you can file your coupons in the Pre-labeled category pockets.
That’s basically it but there are some extras that I really like! There’s a section to file coupons that will expire this month and also a pocket to store coupons to be used on this shopping trip! I said it before and I’ll say it again, pure genius. Can you imagine how much time this would save most people?
My personal favorite feature is that there is a place for receipts and a CoupTracker. The CoupTracker basically is there to help you keep track of your spending. This is great for us that are trying to stick to a budget and I’m sure that this good for us that are already trying to save using coupons! Another great thing is that The Couponizer also comes in nice plastic bag for you to protect it!
Let’s say you need a new CoupStacker or refills for the CoupTracker, no problem you can buy refills for incredibly affordable prices on their site.
The Couponizer retails for $19.95. It’s completely worth is because for just using it myself for over a month now, I’ve saved clear over $200 with using coupons alone! It pays for itself!
I recently was given the opportunity to review a wonderful company called Baby Bistro. Without a doubt, they have made me more confident in feeding my child as parent.
I remember when my daughter was able to start eating solids. I asked my pediatrician about what she should be eating and all she did was give me a not informative enough pamphlet handout and tell me about how easy it was to pick out foods in the baby food aisle of my grocery store. Well, this was okay advice but I was planning on making my own baby food and I needed a little bit more help.
I searched all over the internet to learn what my child should be eating when and how much I should be giving her. Everyplace was different and lacking the information that I needed. Due to this, I have a huge disorganized binder full of feeding information and I never am able to find what I need at the right time.
Christine the founder of Baby Bistro Brands is a genius! When her sister had a baby, she also like me found that there was not just one single place to get all of her questions about nutrition for her child answered. Thus the Baby Bistro Brand was created with the help of her master’s degree in nutrition and also with her four generations of knowledge. She was able to create products to advise those on feeding babies and toddlers.
Let me tell you a little bit about the Baby Bistro Box (0-12 months). It includes safety rules, shopping tips, numerous recipes, and prenatal suggestions. The information is arranged in a convenient recipe card format which allows you to find the information you want, when you need it! I found that questions I’ve had about allergies and foods to avoid giving my child have all been answered for me in this box. This would have been really helpful to me months and months ago!
I took the Shopping Simplicity cards in the box with me to the grocery store last week and it made shopping for my daughter so much easier! I turned from a scatter brained mommy to a more level headed confident mom, which is a great feeling! It has changed the way I feed my child and has made my life so much easier! This box has saved me a lot of time and money!
The Baby Bistro Box would be a great baby Shower gift for a new mom. Remember, it also has prenatal information for new moms! I was not disappointed in this box in the least and I guarantee you won’t be either.
They also have a toddler bistro box for ages 1-3. This one is on my list to get next since my daughter will be turning one in only three more months!
Buy It: The Baby Bistro Box and the Toddler Bistro Box cost $27.95 each and can be purchased online at Baby Bistro Brands. They are also available at Whole Foods Markets and a variety of other stores nationwide.
I’m so excited because today I received my shipment of Country Bob’s Sauce in the mail (as you can see, my daughter is excited too!)! I am really looking forward to making BBQ chicken with this sauce over this weekend! I had to tell my husband not to touch it until I use what I need for our chicken! My husband is a big sauce dipper, he’s constantly dipping foods into various sauces even some which I don’t think are so great of an idea.
Since I’m a christian, I love the fact that the creator of Country Bob’s Sauce gives God the credit where credit is due.
On the sauces site, he mentions Proverbs 16:3 which says, “Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.” They also state that the true ownership of Country Bob, Inc. is in the hands of God. “Christ is our CEO” and He is an Awesome Boss! How wonderful is that?
Currently Country Bob’s also sells BBQ sauce, Seasoning Salt and Spicy All Purpose Sauce in addition to the regular All Purpose Sauce. Country Bob’s is more than a steak sauce; you can grill, cook, and marinate with it, or even put it in your soups, stews, baked beans, and your other favorite dishes. Want to experience the taste?
