Monopoly at McDonald’s $25 GC #Giveaway {CLOSED}

It's Monopoly Time at McDonald's! One of my favorite PR Teams to work with, is the McDonalds of Eastern New England. They sent us this fabulous Monopoly Package to help us celebrate Monopoly Time at McDonald's. One of my son's is a Special Olympics athlete, and the other two volunteer to serve as Unified Partners when needed (we are fortunate to have SO MANY partners that sometimes a few of them need to sit out an event so they don't outnumber the athletes!). McDonald's is a sponsor of the Special Olympics in our area, and we appreciate their support and all…

Keep your medicine cabinet armed and ready to battle your child’s next cough & cold.

Keep your medicine cabinet armed and ready to battle your child's next cough & cold. The Pfizer Pediatric Platform products, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare. All thoughts and reviews are my own. Although winter is over, we are seeing a late flu season here in our area. Strep throat, sinus infections, and colds are also rampant in my kids schools.

$10 Amazon GC #Giveaway {Ends 3/27} #SpringCleaning

Welcome to the Spring Cleaning Giveaway Hop, hosted by Bookhounds. This event will run from March 20 - 27. When determining a prize for this particular hop, I realized that the physical books I purchased over the course of last year, are all books that contribute to collections I have. ALL the other books I bought were e-books to read on my kindle. I can't pass those along, so I thought I'd offer an Amazon GC so you can either purchase electronic copies of books you enjoy to free up space on your bookshelf, or a new book to enjoy…

Living on a Fixed Income: Frugality Can Make it Easier Even if you've been good about saving and investing, you will likely find yourself on a limited income when you hit your golden years. You've stopped working (aaah!) and you have only your savings and (perhaps) social security to live on. That means that you can't go out to eat all the time or buy the latest gadgets as soon as they are introduced. But that doesn't mean that your life has to stop, either. You should be able to actually enjoy your retirement, and if you live frugally, you…

7 Easy Ways to Reduce Household Costs

7 Easy Ways to Reduce Household Costs Do your bills make you cringe? I know mine do. To me it seems like for every penny I earn there are at least two service providers or bill collectors ready to take it. Yet as I learn to be more financially aware, I’ve come to find that there are a LOT of things my family and I could be doing differently to cut back. With a few lifestyle changes and creative thinking, we could actually have money left over each month to do something we enjoy. So here’s what we did: 1.…
