Panasonic Link2Cell & Saving Calls! (A Giveaway Too)


I know I am not alone with the modern issues of cell phones and home phones. I mean, first off I have too many separate phones to track! Secondly, I don’t get good cell reception everywhere in my house.
This was a huge issue when my dad was sick and when he died. I was getting calls from my step mom on my cell and in order to have a conversation I would have to go outside or kick all my kids out of the living room because that was the only way I could get a signal! But that is no longer my issue at home because technology (and Panasonic) has a solution.

Using Gift Cards as a Budgeting Tool


(Make sure you scroll to the bottom for a gift card giveaway!)

Money and budgeting is always an issue that lives in everyone’s life, even if they do it well. I have counselled people before but have never written about gift cards being a great budgeting tool! So when I received an opportunity to do a sponsored post on the subject, I jumped on it!

One of the biggest benefits of gift cards is that it causes you to operate in a method similar to the long standing, ever popular envelope budgeting systems. It is a super easy system. You decide how much you are going to spend in a category (and yes, Starbucks is its own category;) and put that into the envelope. Then when the envelope is empty, you are done spending. You can do it weekly, monthly, or how ever you budget.

It is very easy to use gift cards in the same manner. Want to get a hold of your coffee expenditure? Then buy a gift card to carry in your wallet. Then there is no exceptions to be made! When it is empty, it is empty. Movie tickets, lunch at your favorite spot? All can be helped with gift cards.

There are other reasons for you to prepay for gift cards too! Certain restaurants run gift card deals through the year where if you buy a card they will give you a bonus gift card. I know one my husband did was $50 got him a $50 gift card and an additional $15 card that had to be used a specific month.

Gift cards can also go on sale! I know on Black Friday I always see iTunes gift card deals at a variety of places. Also Safeway/Vons often give you double or quadruple gas points on any gift card purchase. You can even get gift cards at a discount on sites like Plastic Jungle!

Another great gift card deal is Starbucks. Keep reloading your gift card and with every 10 purchases you get a free one! And you get a free one on your birthday too. I think more merchants are going to be going in this route in the future.

But that can lead to a lot of gift cards and that is where GoWallet comes in. You can consolidate those gift cards in one easy to manage location with GoWallet. GoWallet allows you to organize your gift cards online or on your mobile device and you don’t have to carry all those cards around with you. (make sure to check which stores because some will demand the plastic card) At one quick glance you can see how much the balance is on your cards, even buy more cards right through the app. Registration is free, why not give it a try and give gift card budgeting a spin?

Babee Covee Giveaway


When I recently attended the Disney Social Media Moms on the Road event and there was a Huggies Momprenuer panel with Alma Moussa. She talked about a fabulous product she invented and brought to market the fabulous Babee Covee (and has provided one as a giveaway for you, my fabulous readers)!

If you have had a baby you have probably been faced this common problem… You are taking a young baby out in its infant seat and you throw a blanket over the top (for a variety of reasons) and you struggle with the blanket or it would fall to the ground. Well, Alma figured there had to be a better way! So she created this blanket that fit perfectly over the infant seat. But she didn’t have room in her diaper bag for something that could only do one thing. So it also works as a nursing cover, high chair cover. shopping cart cover and a few other things. And these Babee Covees are the softest thing I have ever felt!!!!

Right now these are in some boutiques and Amazon but not many other places! So how would you like to win one??? I am giving away this gorgeous blueberry one!

Psi Bands Giveaway

psi bandsIf you are not a fan of Shark Tank or have never suffered from extreme nausea you may not be familiar with Psi Bands.

Psi Bands were created by Romy Taormina after she had experienced debilitating nausea (like I did). She had found out about pressure bands but while the research was great on it, she wasn’t satisfied with any of the products that were on the market. So rather than get through her nausea and try to forget that time, like I did, she made a better product and started a business!!!

Psi Bands are stylish and durable. They are a drug free treatment for anyone who is battling nausea for any reason! I really wish that I would have found these during any of my pregnancies!!!

I recently saw Romy on a Huggies Momprenuer panel at the Disney Social Media on the Road Event. And she gave me a set of Psi Bands to give away to my readers. So enter to win them for yourself of for some one you might know who’s life they would change!!

Wahl Hot-Cold Therapy Massager Giveaway

hotcoldFirst off I have to get some business out of the way! This review was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own. I received a Wahl Hot/Cold Massager for the purpose of this review.

Mother’s Day is coming!!! And with that comes talk treating moms to something relaxing and pampering. What can be better than something to have at home to relieve her aches and pains?

Ok, I know that I am not the only mom who has a variety aches and pains. And as I get older it seems to get worse! So when I go to try the Wahl Hot-Cold Therapy Massager I was quite excited.

This has a plate in the middle of the massage head that can go hot or cold (ie the name;) but also there are 4 interchangeable pads with different textures on it too. There are also 2 different speeds.

I have to say, I loved it! The first thing I tried it on was my neck that is still hurting from when I took a dive playing broomball a couple of weeks ago. And yes, that is a literal dive;). My neck felt so much better. Then I tried it on my achy knee! I find it is perfect to manipulate around the knee cap to really relieve the tightness!

Wahl’s Hot-Cold Therapy Massager is available at most retailers about $60 and you can pop out and get one as a present for the mom in your life.

But how would you like to win it?

New Plumb Album Giveaway!!!

NEED YOU NOW on iTunes

Once of my favorite artists, Plumb, has a new album that has just come out this week! I have loved Plumb and her music since the beginning! She was the first Christian artist I heard who actually put voice to the fact there are emotional struggles and I had struggles.

Her new album is called Need You Now has that same emotional vulnerability along with beautiful music. I had fallen in love with Drifting when it was released last year so of course that is one of my favorites on this album. The song Unlovable really spoke to me, not only due to my own life but also those I see who the church body attempts to ignore.  But not every song is deeply moving or emotional. I love Chocolate and Ice Cream too;). It is sweet and just adorable.

I could go on for a while. But before I get to the giveaway, let me urge you to go pick up a copy of Need You Now!!

So onto the giveaway. The blog tour is giving away 2 iPad Mini’s!!! You enter that giveaway with the Rafflecopter widget. Also 2 of my readers will win a cd copy of Need You Now!!! Those winners will be chosen from the comments on this blog post when the iPad Mini giveaway closes on 3/4/2013.
