Ditch the Coupon Clutter with the Shop Your Way Phone App

This post about the Shop Your Way Phone App  has been sponsored.  I am a Sears blogger, though all opinions are my own. I have a large bag of coupons that I keep with me at all times.  It is either in my car, my purse, or stuck in a reusable shopping bag.  These aren't grocery store coupons for toothpaste or coffee.  Nope, I have a whole BOX for those.  These coupons are for retail stores because I hate to pay full price for anything when I shop.  Of course, I forget to clean it out regularly so I often find expired coupons in there that I … [Read more...]

You Can Build Anything with LEGO. Even Your Own Family!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of LEGO for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. When I was a kid I used to have a set of LEGO that I played with constantly.  In fact, my mom still has it and my kids love to get it out of the closet when we go visit over the summer.  They think it is funny how different they look compared to their own LEGO sets.  My own kids have more LEGO blocks than you can ever imagine.  Honestly, there are huge bins of LEGO  in my playroom and my kids are now teenagers.  I will never, EVER get rid of … [Read more...]

Preserving Special Memories with YesVideo! #RememberWhen

This discussion about YesVideo has been sponsored but all opinions expressed here are my own. When I was growing up in New England, winter meant snow, fuzzy boots, days off from school and snowball fights with my friends.  I always loved winter as a kid as long as my dad wasn't making my sister and I shovel out the driveway!  Of course, even the dreaded snow shoveling meant hot cups of cocoa with marshmallows to warm  up with afterwards.  There is nothing better than a warm cup of cocoa to take the chill off when you are done shoveling!  … [Read more...]

Organizing Photos with the Shutterfly Photo Story for iPad App

This post about organizing photos has been sponsored by Shutterfly and Global Influence but all opinions expressed are my own. Back when I was younger I used a regular old camera with the old fashioned canister of film.  I took my film to the drug store to get developed and put 8 million slightly blurry pictures of my friends, family, and random household items into a large photo album.  Organizing photos was relatively simple....just stick them in a book in chronological order.  Along come my children and the advent of the digital camera.  … [Read more...]

PhotoPad helps create a scrapbook of your Facebook photos!

This post has been sponsored by PhotoPad but all opinions expressed are my own.   I have been on Facebook for a few years now and really love how easy it is to share picture with family and friends by just uploading them to my Facebook profile.  I have shared pictures of my pets, my kids, our vacations, and all sorts of random things that happen to us every day.  But, after they get  uploaded, they sort of just sit in my Facebook photo album and I don't do anything else with them.  Years worth of cute pictures just sit waiting for … [Read more...]
