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’m naturally always cold so the heating bill is probably a little higher than it should be. Most days you’ll find me around the house with a blanket wrapped over my shoulders try to keep warm, I imagine I look pretty silly. I found it hard to do much whether it be reading a book, enjoying a snack or playing video games with my husband without having to have my arms out in the cold. What was there I to do to keep warm and comfortable?
My dilemma was solved when I recently found out about The Slanket. Basically, The Slanket is a very warm fleece blanket with sleeves! With The Slanket, I have the freedom to still move around without coming uncovered as it is designed to keep my entire body warm and my hands free! I will admit that I would’ve posted this review sooner but my husband kept hogging my Slanket! It’s great because it’s pretty roomy and long enough that you don’t have to worry about becoming uncovered. I’ve been using it everyday since I’ve received it and it looks like my husband is probably going to invest in one soon lest he not keep swiping mine!
You can even purchase a Slanket for your kids as they also come in smaller sizes and fun colors!
I love that The Slanket loves people and that’s why they donate sells to some pretty great causes! All blue Slankets will raise money for H2O AFRICA. Green, brown, and grey Slankets will help contribute to the NATURAL RESOURCES DEFENSE COUNCIL. The lavender, ruby wine, and apricot will accumulate funds for the BREAST CANCER RESEARCH FOUNDATION! Isn’t that wonderful?
You can’t go wrong with keeping toasty and warm! Do you have a family member who has everything? I bet they don’t have a Slanket! These would make wonderfully warm and cozy gifts!
As a parent, I know how important it is to label my child’s things. If your children are out and about or even at home, you are going to find or have already found out how important labeling things are. I’m sure if you’re a parent, you’ve used the good ole’ permanent marker but ever after a few washes whether in the dish or laundry washer, the good ole’ name written out in sharpie starts to fade out. I can attest to this because while my daughter is at the nursery, they took the liberty of labeling my daughters sippy cups and snack bowls for me and her name written out has already faded.
I was surfing through various mom blogs a few weeks ago and happened upon Label Daddy labels. These are really great labels as they are dishwasher, washer and dryer, and even microwaveable safe. You can use these labels for clothing, sports supplies, shoes, luggage, spices, home address, and more.
My favorite label is the allergy label as this is very important for your children to have so as their caregivers won’t give them something that’s an endangerment to their life. My daughter is currently allergic to peas and this is an allergy that I hope she grows out of but if not, I’m going to get a set of these labels because you can never be to careful.
Label Daddy Labels are extremely easy to purchase for your needs. They are fully customizable which is great! You can pick from the various color, font, text and an icon, for your design. You even have the option to have your labels laminated for items that are more heavy duty.
I highly recommend them to everyone as it’s important to keep things in order and these will just make your life that much easier. What are you waiting for, visit Label Daddy today!

Have you heard about LTD Chix apparel? Their apparel meets us moms exactly where we are! They capture us in our finest or as some would think are not so finest moments. You know those moments were we think we feel what we look like (sometimes we do) and we are driven to the point of chaotic meltdown! They capture us in those moments that make us exactly what we are, Moms!
I was able to review the Laundry mom shirt which features a mom with a massive basket of laundry. Growing up, laundry was one of my least favorite tasks and it still is. I have a firm hold on the laundry most days and those are usually on the days when my child is happy. My daughter has some real mood swings some days (…but what kid doesn’t?) and then it’s hard to get anything done! Right now, I have a husband and one child so it’s not too hard but I know there’s going to be a day when I will battle heaps of laundry and my sanity, especially when more kids get added to my family. To keep sane I need the humor like most of the rest of you moms out there.
My favorite shirt would have to be the Multi-tasking mom but I really do love them all! These shirts I can wear proudly because I’m a mom. I love the humor in these shirts because as moms we don’t get much of a break sometimes, and we could all use a good laugh!
LTD Chix offers many tees in lots of different styles and colors from short to long sleeve to red to blue. Each of their t-shirts has a picture of a mom in a funny but ever so true situation followed by the caption” Living the Dream”.
Which mom design do you think you most relate too? We’ll be giving away a Laundry Mom t-shirt in the next few days so don’t forget to enter for one of your very own!
If you’re a mom like me, I’m sure you may miss wearing your jewelry. I like to accessorize when wearing certain outfits and having a little one made that hard because whatever necklace or bracelet I wore went straight to her mouth. First, I didn’t want her to get hurt or choke on whatever I was wearing, second I didn’t want teeth marks all over my pieces, and third I didn’t want to stop accessorizing. What was I to do? I pretty much gave up wearing anything, that is until discovered Smart Mom Jewelery.
The Smart Mom Jewelry line is great! They have a variety of styles and colors to choose from. I like how the styles mimic those ever popular stone circle pendants. I had lots of people appalled at me at first because that thought I was letting my daughter chew on stone. They were relieved after I explained to them what my child was chewing on and thought the idea of it was ingenious! I like these so much that I wear them even when I don’t have my daughter with me and was even complimented on them. I was quite amused and pleased that people couldn’t tell the difference!
Smart Mom Jewelry also has pretty cute heart pendants, bangle bracelets, and even key chains! These pieces are safe for your baby or toddler to teeth and tug o. All pieces are non-toxic, phthalate, BPA, PVC, lead free, and even dishwasher friendly. All the pendants come with a breakaway clasp as an added safety feature. Though you should never leave your child alone with a pendant due to safety reasons.
This jewelry has made me happy again were I can accessorize and not worry about the safety of my child. I’m a baby wearing mom so my daughter is usually always pretty close to me. These make my daughter pretty happy too because she does not take to a pacifier so when she’s really teething she had nothing to chew on while I was carrying her around. Smart Mom jewelery has both this mom and daughter very happy!
I would have to say that the hardest part about purchasing this jewelry is picking it out due to the gorgeous variety! Know also that a percentage of all retail sales goes to CureSearch and Dress for Success, two great charitable organizations.
I wish that someone would have gotten me a set for my baby shower! If you want to get somebody or yourself something different and quite useful, I recommend checking out Smart Mom Jewelry.
We are going to be giving away two Smart Mom Jewelry sets, Winner(s) choose their own colors! Come back in a day or two to enter!
I recently was given an opportunity to test out products from company called Classy Kid INC. This company is a juvenile products and restaurant supply manufacturer located in the outskirts of Las Vegas, NV, USA and have manufacturing and distribution facilities throughout Europe, Asia, South America and Australia.
This companies main goal is to improve the quality of life of parents and children everywhere. They are members of the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) and the North American Association of Food Equipment Manufacturers (NAFEM).
Classy Kid Changing Table Cover
Now let me introduce you to the products that I received to review! I received Keep Me Color Place mats, Keep Me Healthy Potty Protectors, Keep Me Clean Disposable Bibs, Keep Me Clean Changing Table Covers, and Keep Me Tidy Diaper Sacks.
I was able just recently to use the Keep Me Clean Changing Table Covers. You have no idea how many times that I go out in public and there is no diaper changing table cover for me to change my daughter on. I’m not a germaphobic but I really don’t trust how clean any public bathroom is! So, I am glad that I had these to layout on the table to change my daughter! I received such peace of mind using this product knowing that it also a Earth friendly product where as it’s biodegradable and disposable! At, 18″ wide x 22″ long it fits perfectly on all commercial changing table. It also is soft, water proof coated cotton so it prevents little leaks from getting anywhere while you change your little one! I no longer have to cover the area with paper hand towels, thanks to Classy Kids!
Next I’ll tell you about the 75pc. Keep Me Tidy Diaper Sacks! These smell great, a lot better than that stinky diaper that you’ll be trying to get rid of. I don’t know how many times I am out at friends houses and I worry about what happens if my daughter has a real smelly blow out! I don’t want to stink up my friends houses with stinky poop filled diapers. Voila these little sacks fit easily into my diaper bag and are there on the ready for me! These are great to use when I’m out and about and also in my own home. They really save the cost of lining my diaper pail, and they are biodegradable…are we seeing a trend?
Then there is the Keep Me Clean Disposable Bibs! These are nice to have on the ready when I am eating out. I simply throw one or two in my diaper bag and we are good to go. I don’t have to worry about wiping a bib down before we leave, I can just simply remove it and throw it in the trash. They even have a little catcher in the front of the bib!
The other products I’ve received, I have not put to the test yet but I’m sure I’m really going to be fond of them all. My favorite thing about these products is that they are green, earth friendly, breaks down in weeks, not decades! This company is doing it’s best to keep our convenience and the world around us at heart by keeping their products 100% biodegradable. Thanks Classy Kids!
