Gifts for pregnant women don't have to focus on the baby! What a great list of thoughtful gifts for expecting moms that are just for her! I would have loved these type of pregnancy gifts.

Sometimes when you're pregnant you want attention and gifts that are just for you, the expecting mom, not just for the new baby. You want to receive gifts for pregnant women that say "I'm thinking about how this little bundle of joy is going to change your life - and I want this gift to help." Or, maybe that's just me. Many of the pregnancy gifts I suggest are things that will make life for the momma-to-be easier, more manageable, but also more enriched. These go far beyond baby registry items! These are items first time moms, or second time moms (and beyond) to help them enjoy carrying a new life inside of her and outside of ...

3 Best Online Consignment Shops for Buying Used Clothing for You and Your Kids

This post likely contains affiliate links which may earn me commissions should you click through them and take certain actions.

I didn't know about these three online consignment shops that sell thrift store used clothing and toys for women and kids! This is such a great money saving tip!! I know where I'm shopping for clothes from now on.

There are many great reasons to buy used clothing online.  But, not all online consignment shops are created equal, especially when it comes to buying used clothes. Some have some pretty great perks and incentives and great selections. Others, not so much.I have recently started buying more secondhand used clothing online for my kids. While I still do buy some clothing new (usually on clearance), buying secondhand for us is just a great way to save oodles of money on outfitting four children and even ourselves! With twins, the biggest on-going cost (besides food) is buying new clothes for them as we always need double the amount of ...

Like any professional business, especially of the entrepreneur variety, bloggers have a lot of things that they need to help grow their business.

Cashing in on your Cash Back – The App that Makes it Easier

This post likely contains affiliate links which may earn me commissions should you click through them and take certain actions.

Great new app that makes it easy to cash out your cash back rewards right at the checkout!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Chase Freedom for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Getting money back for purchases I regularly make everyday is my favorite way to save. It's why I love couponing, cash back sites, and cash back reward credit cards like Chase Freedom, which offers unlimited 1% cash back on every purchase, no annual fee, and a $100 signup bonus. With these methods I don't have to go out of my way to be rewarded: I save on purchases I was already making. The question now is, what do you do with your cash back rewards? Do you use them as soon as you reach the thresholds? Do you bank them until ...

12 Reasons to Love H-E-B

Love these yellow HEB coupons hanging around the store!

Moving to Texas was great except it meant shopping at a new (to us) grocery store chain: H-E-B. Grocery stores are an integral part of your life, no matter if you shop a few times a week or just once a month. To start a new "relationship" with a grocery store was not my favorite. I didn't know the ins and outs of it, how their coupon policy worked, what their best products and deals are, or how their sale cycle went, like I did with my previous grocery store chain in Indianapolis. After a year of being here in Texas, I am finally getting more familiar with HEB and all it has to offer. Despite my initial hold-ups at the beginning ...

This post likely contains affiliate links which may earn me commissions should you click through them and take certain actions.

Sam's Club is awesome for large families to go shopping at because of the HUGE carts!

This post was sponsored by Sam's Club® , however, all opinions of it and its services are my own. My husband and I have been Sam's Club® members for a little over a year now. And we have been loving all of the savings that membership offers us! We shop at our local Sam's Club all the time, and certainly have our favorite products that we buy over and over again! As we've welcomed a new baby into our home recently, it's become even more handy to have a Sam's Club membership, and the savings even greater. I am a very cost-conscience buyer, and I have often been leery of club memberships, and always want to know if the membership ...
