Saving Money With Groupon #ad

This post is sponsored by Groupon. All opinions expressed are our own. As a child I pretty much thought money grew on trees (not literally). I remember asking my mother for something and when she'd say that we didn't have the money at the time, I would reply, "Just write a check". I really did think that you could just write a check or swipe a credit card and the item would be yours. Of course, my mother would explain to me that this is not the way things worked and that money really doesn't grow on trees. I think it's important to teach our children about money and where it comes from. I also think it's important to teach our children how to save. I think I do a pretty good job at showing my children ways that we can cut costs with coupons and deal sites as well as ways that we can build our savings accounts. One coupon site that I really like is Groupon. Have you heard of them? About Groupon (info from their site): Groupon is building the daily habit in local commerce, … [Read more...]

Tennessee Attractions- Our Family Vacation #ad

Please note: We received free and/or discounted tickets to many of the attractions we attended. All opinions expressed are our own. Does our Pigeon Forge vacation really have to end? We were having so much fun in Tennessee that we really didn't want our vacation to end. My husband and I got married (almost) 18 years ago at a small church called the Sugarland Wedding Chapel on the main strip (Parkway) in Gatlinburg, TN. We try to go back to the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg area as often as we can (our whole family loves the area!) This year we decided to take our children to the church where it all started... We were thrilled to see that the church was still standing, however I wish I would have called ahead of time to see if we could have gone inside to take a peek around. Unfortunately, the doors were locked when we arrived. Maybe next time! We visited some pretty awesome attractions in Gatlinburg! Our first attraction was to the Ripley's Aquarium of The Smokies in Gatlinburg, … [Read more...]

The Perfect Easter Basket For Older Boys

This post is sponsored by, however, all opinions are 100% my own. Over the years I have found it more and more challenging to come up with great holiday gifts for my older boys. They could care less if they woke up on Easter morning to plastic eggs throughout the house and little bunnies in a basket. Don't get me wrong, they want the candy, but they don't so much care about all of the fun and cute stuff. This year we decided to do something a little different. We live in a very small town and are blessed to have a KMart with a grocery section in it. I love how they carry products for each holiday, but they make my life simple by keeping it all in one big section of the store. Those stores that spread everything all across the store and make you walk back and forth sort of annoy me---ha! KMart's grocery section offers competitive, low prices on their grocery items. I headed over to my local K-Mart with an idea and a budget. I'm pleased to announce that I stayed under … [Read more...]
