Prenatal Vitamins aren’t just for Moms-to-Be! (and a diapers.com giveaway!)

I'm a mom of three so I am no stranger to prenatal vitamins. I remember when I was pregnant with my first child, I would gag whenever I would take my prenatal vitamins because of their large size. In the beginning, I decided on my own to take children's chew-able vitamins instead. But after a few months and a few blood tests later, my doctor could see from the results that I was becoming anemic. Needless to say, I was back on those giant horse pills in no time. It took awhile to get used to … [Read more...]

Do You Always Shop Within Your Budget?

I often wonder if I'm the only person that always, without fail, go over my budget when it comes to food shopping. I don't know what it is. I think I'm doing it right.  Before I leave my house, I always start off with a list. I go in the pantry and see what's missing and I do the same in the refrigerator.  I leave with cash in my purse (it saves me more money, in my opinion), my coupons and my list. Once I'm at the store, I try to stay on track with what's on my list. That doesn't … [Read more...]

And I don't want to hear that! Who does? I know it's alot of work to cut and sort coupons and most people don't have the time to … [Read more...]
