My 3/25 Publix Trip – $100.46 for $35.23 or 65% Off
http://ift.tt/1Gpd1Ja

This was apparently candy and drinks week for me at Publix! I always stock up on candy around the holidays like Easter, Halloween and Christmas and I hide or freeze the excess so it will last until the next holiday. Since I had great coupons for both I had to stock up on the cran-grape juice and the Diet Cokes. I needed to spend a few more bucks so I could use a $10/$50 Apple Market coupon that came in a local monthly mailer and I decided I’d like to try the Natura wine since there were no alcohol exclusions on the coupon.

#ImagineSpring with OshKosh B’Gosh Kids Spring Fashions
http://ift.tt/1B4Ocwx

Disclosure – I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’Gosh. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

It seems like it was freezing just a week or so ago but now we’re already having high temps in the high 70s, low 80s and the azaleas are blooming like crazy. I didn’t think spring was ever going to get here and I’m thrilled that it has and that with it we get these longer days since the time change. We’ve been spending lots more time playing outside and that makes everybody happy, but especially momma since they’ve been sleeping so well at night after all the playtime.

I went over to the Oshkosh B’Gosh store at the Tanger Outlet Mall in Foley, Alabama and was very pleased with such a large selection of adorable kids’ clothes at such great prices. There were lots of fabulous things on sale plus I had this coupon for 25% off an Oshkosh B’Gosh purchase of $30 or more.

There was so much to choose from that I didn’t have a problem finding some new spring clothes for all five of my kiddoes and I’m psyched to report that I ended up with 13 items for $118.52 after 25% off coupon, plus I got back $20 in Carter’s & Oshkosh Rewards that are good off any purchase of $20 or more through early May. My girls got two shirts each and my “pink” girl got an adorable pair of pink pants. My oldest son got a shirt and some much needed socks, and my identical boys got a shirt, pair of shorts and pair of swim trunks each. They were all happy campers about their new spring clothes couldn’t wait to model them for these pictures.

I can’t wait to go back and spend my rewards on more cool clothes for the kids! You can find a store near you here or check out their website, and don’t forget to grab your 25% off coupon! While you’re at it you can also check out Oshkosh on Facebook and Twitter.

They are made from delicious scrambled eggs, pork sausage and all natural cheddar cheese in an oven baked flour tortilla. Not only are they a fast and yummy breakfast, but they’re also great for taking on the road with us on those days that we’re running late for school.

Yummy Fruit and Yogurt Wraps and $15 PayPal Cash Giveaway
http://ift.tt/1B2IDxs

My kids get two meals a day plus a snack at school but they always seem to be “starving” by the time they get home so I like to have quick and healthy snacks ready for them when they get home. The kids really loved these fruit and yogurt wraps that I made with Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! and they’ve become a new favorite afternoon snack at our house.

We’re huge yogurt fans at our house but I have to be honest – the last time I brought home Greek yogurt for the kids they all turned their noses up at it and refused to eat more than a bite. I love that Greek yogurt is lower in fat and higher in protein than regular yogurt but I was nervous about getting the kids to try it again. Well I am very happy to report that the new Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! are a huge hit with the kiddos. I brought home the blueberry and strawberry flavors for them to try and they are super light, creamy and delicious. We will definitely be trying some of the other flavors like lemon meringue, strawberry cheesecake and vanilla cupcake. Grab your coupon for a FREE Yoplait Greek 100 Whips! yogurt from Publix here!

I found this fruit and yogurt wrap recipe at the Yoplait website along with a bunch of other great ideas. I love how simple these are to make and that they’re filling enough to tide the kids over until dinner, plus the kids have enjoyed helping me make them and that’s always lots of fun.

Different Ways to Use Your Garage
http://shopperstrategy.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/garageappeal.png

There are many people who do not use their garage as a place to keep cars. This happens because the cars do not fit or the family needs extra space. The family can change the room into a place that will look like any other room in the home. The family can make a transformation that will change the way they use all the rooms in their home by changing them to something that is brand new.

Bedroom

The garage can be changed into a bedroom simply by using wall units for storage. The room can be another guest bedroom that the family keeps items in, and they will not have to worry about parking their cars in the garage anymore.

Kitchen

The garage can become a new kitchen when the homeowner decides that it is wise to install new cabinets. The new cabinets in the room will be the beginning of a great kitchen that the family can install to run a new business or offer other services in the community. There are many times when the family will need to add a kitchen or living space, and the garage is the perfect place to handle this with new cabinets.

Storage

The garage can be turned into a storage room that will work well for all the items that the family has been keeping somewhere else. The room can be lined with storage cabinets, and the ceiling can be lined with storage that allows the family to hang things up or slide them into tracks. The family must remember that they can make the most of the room when they are putting in new storage units.

The storage can be used for tools and other things that the family uses to get their work done. All the storage units can be labeled, and the family will be able to keep track of everything more easily.

Changing the garage into something new is easy when the family decides to use storage units from a place like GarageAppeal.com to make a change to something that is no longer a garage at all.

Make Your Bedroom Your Sanctuary
http://ift.tt/1xm64W2

Your bedroom should be your sanctuary for rest and relaxation after a busy day. It should be a comfortable, inviting space with necessary conveniences and privacy that will help you begin each new day with renewed energy and motivation. With some creative effort and design tips, you can turn your bedroom into a relaxing retreat that you’ll love.

Inviting Colors

Changing your paint and bedding colors will quickly change the look of your entire bedroom. With thousands of colors to choose from, narrow your choices to several colors that compliment your furniture and style. For a tranquil, relaxing bedroom, choose a light, cool color like sky blue or mint. Select modern bedding linens in soft shades of ivory, brown or gray. For a more dramatic look, go with deeper colors like crimson, cobalt or emerald mixed with bed linens in white or pearl gray. For touches of glamour, integrate touches of gold or silver in accents and accessories.

Soft Lighting

Your bedroom should have a good balance of natural, ambient, task and accent lighting. Windows in the room provide natural lighting and warmth from the sun. Ambient lighting, also called overhead lighting, like recessed lights, tracks lights, chandeliers and pendants provide uniform light levels throughout the room without glare. Task lighting like table or desk lamps and wall mounted reading lights provide direct lighting over a specific area. Accent lighting spotlights art, accessories or plants and creates a dramatic appeal. For a soft, relaxing atmosphere, put all of your overhead fixtures on dimmers and only use incandescent light bulbs in all of your fixtures.

Accessories

When selecting accessories, look for items that compliment your bedroom style and offer visual interest with size, shape, color or texture. Large accessories like mirrors, paintings and lamps have a big impact on finished design appeal, so make sure sizes and colors enhance the space. Small accents like throw pillows come in a variety of fabrics like cotton, linen, wool, silk, faux fur, suede and leather. You can choose solid colors, simple textures and bold patterns with a variety of decorative edging. For a subtle, sophisticated look, select solid colors in cotton, linen or silk with fringe or tassels. For modern, dramatic appeal, add pillows in bold patterns, faux fur or leather. To create a romantic, eclectic look, use pillows in novelty shapes and fabrics like fur, sequins, beads or embroidery.

Celebrate Dunkin Donuts DD Perks Anniversary!
http://ift.tt/1uvxHf5

Disclosure – I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Dunkin’ Brands. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

http://ift.tt/1xXQR8D

Have you signed up for the Dunkin’ Donuts DD Perks rewards program yet? If you haven’t then this is a great time to do it! Dunkin’ Donuts is celebrating the one year anniversary of their DD Perks program.  The program started in January last year and by June there were over a million members. Guests can earn points towards free Dunkin’ Donuts beverages with the DD Perks Rewards program  and you’ll also get a free beverage in any size when you first sign up for the program. Once you’re enrolled you’ll earn five points for every dollar you spend when you pay using an enrolled Dunkin’ Donuts Card, either plastic or through the Dunkin’ Mobile App. After you reach 200 points you’ll receive a coupon for a free beverage of your choice.

I have always been a huge fan of Dunkin’ Donuts so I’m thrilled about the opportunity to earn points for goodies on purchases that I would make anyway! My five kiddos absolutely love when they get treated with Dunkin’ Donuts for doing great things like getting good grades on their report cards. Their donuts and beverages are always fabulous plus the service is fast and efficient, a must when bringing in five little ones, and we always have a great experience when we visit Dunkin’ Donuts.

Don’t forget to install the Dunkin’ Donuts DD Perks mobile app on your smartphone, it makes it even easier to check your points, redeem your rewards and pay for your purchases. One of my favorite things about the app is that I can use it to send “gifts” electronically to other people. So for instance, I can tap a couple buttons on the app and send my mom enough to get donuts for everyone for the weekend since she often passes by Dunkin’ Donuts while I’m stuck at work. That’s a win-win for everyone, the kids, their grandparents and I all get our favorite donuts and beverages, mom gets to pick them all out and I pay for them without having to leave my desk!

Go sign up for the DD Perks rewards program and while  you’re at it go ahead and follow Dunkin’ Donuts on Facebook and Twitter so you don’t miss any delicious news or specials!
