Buying in bulk often means lower cost per unit, but there are other hidden downsides of buying in bulk from club warehouse stores like Sam's Club and Costco.

I never shopped at a big club warehouse before I went to Utah for school and I shopped at a Costco for the first time. I thought it was both awesome - "Oooh! It's a better price per unit! And look at this jumbo package of toilet paper! We'll never run out!" - and crazy - "You have to spend money before you can spend money here?" I mean, what? You need to pay for a yearly membership in order to reap the discounted prices? Totally didn't seem like a win. At least not to my single college student self. Sometimes warehouse club memberships are not worth it for a variety of reasons. (But, there are many reasons they are totally ...

Potty Training in 3 Days? Talk about a pipe dream! Love this honest and humorous post about what happens after your child leaves diapers behind.

This is a sponsored post by Charmin and Acorn Influence. All opinions are my own. As I walk past our children's bathroom, I see it. I see that I am a failure. I see that I clearly suck at potty training my kids. Because inside the bathroom sits the unflushed toilet, the all-too-dry towel, and toilet paper squares spread all over the floor. Again.My potty-trained children are five and a half years old and still many of the finishing touches of potty training escape them. Honestly, I'm at a bit of a loss as to what to do to help them at this point. They've been without diapers for over two and a half years. It's not like they ...

Prep for fourth baby now

This is a sponsored post by Proctor and Gamble and Acorn Influence. All opinions are my own. Prepping for a baby is going to be different for every family, and for every child, especially when that child is not your first, your second, or even your third. By the time a family is doing prep for a fourth baby, things are going to be easier, more relaxed, even if it's finally a child of a different gender. That is because parents of three kids already know what is really necessary for a baby, and what is not. A first baby is prepped for to the fullest extent. From over-the-top baby showers and nurseries to adorable layette, a ...

If you need new tires on your car, then you have to #DaretoCompare local stores with Sam's Club! They have such a great deal on tires and the service fees to install them.

This is a sponsored by post written by me on behalf ofSam’s Club for IZEA all opinions are 100% mine. A few months ago my family received our tax returns, and like many Americans, we were thinking about big investments and purchases that our money needed to go toward. One of those big expenses were new tires for our large Chevy suburban.Paying for four large SUV sized tires is not a small investment, and my husband is pretty picky about the tires we put on our cars, so not just any old tire would do. So we looked around, held onto rebate offers and special discounts from local tire shops and tire manufacturers that came in the ...
