Legoland - Florida

Legoland is a great time for young kids!  Read the review here...

Here are some tips to save you some money...
Look at the price of Wal-Mart and Publix tickets to save a bit on the gate price.
Pack a cooler full of lunch.  You can't take it in, but you can go in and out as you please.  
We usually plan to go out once for our lunch.  The car picnic has proven to be a welcome, relaxing rest.  We play music and eat then go go go!

I visited 2 friends in the last week that are booth needing some relief from their financial responsibilities.  The number one on going expense for them both was GROCERIES!  Could you believe that?  I sat with one of my friends and just one sunday paper and we found about $15 in savings in minutes.  Of coarse this was frustrating for her because these were purchases she had just made but it got her more interested in saving.  My other friend recently had her household of 4 people increase to 6 with the addition of 2 young adults.  This of coarse means more groceries and toiletries.  These are friends of mine, they now what I do.  So why do they not use coupons?  The truth finally came out.

Both of my dear friends thought that saving 50-90% on their groceries had to be complicated.  They both have very demanding jobs and families and just felt that they didn't have the time to learn how to do this.  Of coarse, you know that they are both going to my next class right...

So is it easy?  At first no.  It is something new that you are learning.  You are changing some habits and organizing yourself a little differently.  This learning curve, while extremely beneficial, can feel like extra work.  Like other hugely beneficial things, the work is nothing compared to the reward.  For some families, it can mean the difference between survival and failure.
It does, however, become extremely easy.  I would say give it two months.  By then, you will have gotten addicted to the savings, found your personal system, and will be able to know if you prefer paying a lot more.

Most of us need a little wipe down once in a while.  Lets face it, I know that I skip the glasses cleaning once in a while.  I have to have my vision blocked in order to notice that it is that time again.  Today's freebie will help you with dirty glasses.  Wal-Mart is giving away their travel cleaner and cloth.  All you have to do is click here, print the form out, and take it to them.

I'm Sorry

I wanted to Thank all of you who are emailing, texting, and posting your condolences on my personal fb page, my phones text screen, and in my email.  Please excuse my disappearance but the sudden loss of my young, sweet husband is going to take me away for a while.  I will be checking the page but not posting much at all.  I appreciate everything.

Wednesday, September 7, 2011


I am not sure what to do or say.  I have readers and all of the sudden I stop writing.  There is a horrible reason and I am doing my best to cope with a horrible loss.  I will be back as soon as I can.  I promise and I am sorry.

A freebie for your Men!

I usually see freebies for the family, the home, the baby, the see where I can keep going with this.  The freebies for your man are a little harder to find.  Go ahead and spoil the men in your life with this one while it is still available!
Would you like to win extra wife points?  Toss the sample in an I love you or I appreciate you card.  You can make those on your home computer system.  Most men do not know about the world of freebies and will be left to assume that you went out of your way to make them feel good.  Testosterone loves the ego fluff!  

Many Blessings!

If a class is open to the public, I will post the class here so that you are able to drop into any class that is convenient to you.  I will also post a link to the facebook event so that you can RSVP.

When I started, I went to a couple of classes.  The repeat information just made me feel more comfortable with all the new ideas and strategies.  Then, I also wanted to take a few friends and show them how to save some of their hard earned money too.  Everyone has their own styles but the 2 most important steps to saving are getting the right training and getting the Orlando Sentinel delivered directly to your home.  Both can be done on the day of the class or you can save money from the first day by pre-ordering your subscription!

To arrange a class simply email me or leave a comment with your email address!

New Ventures Bad for Sleeping Habits

Oh goodness, I have been up way to late trying to learn all about this in a day.  So far, I think it is coming together well.  I am completely faking the funk at this tech-y stuff.  Well, I am still a mother and have plenty on the to do list tomorrow.  I am just testing this thing.  I needed another label to see how they worked.

I want to learn how to do so many things.  Like the drop down menu on a label.  Maybe I should get these books...

I am excited about everything to come!
Many Blessings!
