Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt Summer VIP Pass Giveaway #MenchiesMyWay

Menchie's Frozen Yogurt

My family has a tiny obsession with Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt. Okay, I lied, it is actually kind of a BIG obsession! With summer in full swing we are always looking for fun and tasty ways to beat the heat. Thankfully we live super close to our local Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt shop. When I say super close I mean I can walk there in under 10 minutes! My whole family enjoys heading over to our local Menchie’s which is located in the Rutherford Marketplaces Plaza in Richmond Hill.

With an abundance of topping options, both healthy ones and ones that I let my girls pick as special treats the creation options are endless! From berries to nuts, sours and sweets, Menchie’s has you covered for whatever your palate craves.

Save More Than $50 Per Year With Danone DanOn Coupons

Danone Coupons

Saving money is an important part of my job as the main shopper for my family. From groceries to clothing and more I am always on the lookout for the best deals on things my family need.

I’ll be honest, I have been slacking a bit lately on couponing and using my rebate apps BUT I have still been price matching. Life has become a bit hectic, especially with Bella learning to walk. She needs more of my attention and I haven’t yet found a great way to manage my time between my children, blog work and the need to coupon. Although I still have a massive stockpile of many things, I am going to have to try a little harder to squeeze in the time to start couponing again as I am not too happy with my grocery bill lately!

Essential Life Hacks With Carefree Pantiliners + Giveaway & Twitter Party

Essential Life Hacks With Carefree Pantiliners

How many of you ladies have pantiliners in your home? Well, as an extreme couponer, I have all sorts of feminine products in an abundance. For a matter of fact, I have two whole shelves in my stockpile dedicated to feminine hygiene products. You may even find me with a buggy full of them on any given week if an amazing deal comes along that I can pair with a coupon or a rebate. I mean, they don’t expire, I am a mother of 3 girls and a woman myself.

Now of course we know what pantiliners are used for, they are great as an extra barrier during your period should your tampon or period cup leak. They are also amazing for the few days leading up to your expected period so you don’t ruin that favourite pair of pants. Keeping fresh and clean is also a perk to using pantiliners when not on your period as they help absorb any sweat from this summer heat!

Do you know that pantiliners have a gazillion other uses? These thin, little wonders of the world are amazing and their many uses is one of the other reasons I have an abundance of them in my stockpile!

Marvel Universe LIVE! Giveaway & Discount Code

Marvel Universe Live

Summer break from school leaves many parents trying to find fun and affordable activities to keep the little ones entertained so they are not saying “I’m bored” every 5 minutes. I love spending most of our days outside of the house, whether it is a trip to the park, playing outside in our big backyard or adventures to special places like the water park where we will be headed this weekend. I also love spending time with my sister and her family.

My nephew’s birthday is this month, he is turning 7 years old and is a HUGE superhero fan! We will be surprising him with tickets to the upcoming Marvel Universe LIVE show taking place at Hamilton’s FirstOntario Centre for his birthday. I know he will be over the moon excited.

Marvel Universe LIVE! is happening this August at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto from August 13 – 16 and at FirstOntario Centre in Hamilton from August 6 – 9. If you have kids who love their superheroes you will want to keep reading. I will be sharing a special discount code to save some moolah on tickets as well as a giveaway for your chance to win a family pack of four tickets to the show.

Lysol® Makes Cleaning Your Bathroom A Breeze #ToiletToTubClean

Lysol Makes Cleaning Your Bathroom A Breeze_main

Truth be told, I am not the cleaner in our home. Well, I am not the regular cleaner in our home! For the most part my partner does things like the dishes, sweeping, washing the floors and so on. My mother who lives in the basement apartment of our home also comes up and cleans — I have a pretty awesome mom! She will do things like dust, wax and vacuum. As for me, I have an obsession with my bathroom, it is the one room of the house I can’t let anyone else clean because I have to know I have cleaned that room from corner to corner. With all the germs that float around in a bathroom I can’t sleep at night if it hasn’t been cleaned to my satisfaction.

With that said, I have teen and a pre-teen daughters, who let’s put it nicely, are a tad messy in the bathroom. I can’t count how many days I go in after they have up and left for school to find toothpaste on my counter (and all in the sink), hair everywhere – did they transform into shedding dogs? and well some days it looks like a war zone with shrapnel everywhere!

Amazingly Delish Cookie Recipes

Amazingly Delish Cookie Recipes

Cookie Monster approved! Well, not the blue one on Sesame Street but the Cookie Monster that resides in my home. He is the only male besides Reggie in our home and we all know that cats can’t (or shouldn’t) eat cookies, nor can they talk! To say he was drooling as I was going over the recipes that I was going to include in this round-up is an understatement. He definitely let me know these are all on my to-bake list and he would be expecting something freshly made when he returns from work today!

I don’t know about you but I am not a huge store-bought, bagged cookie type of girl. I mean, there are a few I will indulge in, but I fully prefer the soft, chewy, oh-so-good, homemade kind of cookies!

Get your mixers ready and aprons on to bake some of these amazingly delish cookie recipes below.

DIY Yarn Wrapped Letters

DIY Yarn Wrapped Letters

Let’s start off this post with the truth, I am not as crafty as you all may think I am. Digitally I can create beautiful designs for my home, birthday invites, advertisements etc. However when it comes to leaving the digital world and getting my hands dirty sometimes I fail, sometimes things take me a while to get the hang of, but I keep at it and I have found that physically crafting things has become easier for me.

I fell in love with the idea of doing DIY Yarn Wrapped Letters for Bella’s nursery in colours that matched her custom bedding and other decor when I saw them while browsing on Etsy. However being frugal I knew I could make them much cheaper than the steep price many were charging on there.
