Review: Snuggle Fresh Spring Flowers Scent

I am an active member of the Snuggle Community and they have sent me a new product to try for FREE!
We have been using the new Snuggle Fresh Spring Flowers Scent dryer sheets and I love them! They are easy to use and make our laundry smell so fresh and clean. This Snuggle product uses fresh release scent droplets that add an extra touch to our family’s laundry and bedding items. It helps to keep them looking, smelling, and feeling fresh and irresistible.

Snuggle realizes that it's summer time and our children are at home with us more. If you would like a Snuggle coloring sheet you may download it here.

Happy Spring Time Gardening!

Spring is here and it's time for outdoor projects to be started. I am a member of CrowdTap and they have encouraged their members to write a fun Spring DIY tutorial and I have chosen gardening as my DIY project.

My family and I enjoy gardening and each year we try something different. This year we started growing our plant seeds in 2 liter bottles that we used to create terrariums.

One sunny Sunday afternoon we cut each of the 2 liter bottles in half and then filled them with potting soil. The children got to choose which seeds they wanted to plant and then they poked holes in the dirt, placed in the seeds, covered them up and watered them before replacing the top of the 2 liter back on. We were careful to remember which seeds we placed in each container and we used a marker to write the plant names on the side of the 2 liter bottles.

We anxiously waited about a week before the seeds turned in to seedlings and then into plants. Once the chance of frost had passed we transplanted our plants in to our raised garden bed. Now we check them daily to see if any new vegetables have grown. My family and I enjoy our little garden. It is a way for us to connect through the whole growing process. Plus we get to enjoy the produce of our labor!

Saving Money At Dollar General

We live in small town USA and our only local store is Dollar General.  I am so thankful to have this store in our town and we shop there several times each week.  My favorite day to shop at Dollar General is on Saturdays and I want to share a great way to save money when you shop there.

Dollar General has digital coupons that  you can get off of their website and load them to your account. Then when you pay at the cash register you enter your phone number that is connected to your account on the credit card machine BEFORE the cashier hits total. It is really easy to use.  If you combine these coupons with shopping on a Saturday and getting the $5 off of $25 coupon you can save approximately 50% off of your bill easily.

My big money savers today were:
$2 off always discreet pads: reg $4 and the 5/25 took off another .50 = $1.50
$1 off herbal essence bod wash reg $2.25 and the 5/25 took off .28 = .97
$3 off Loreal total repair shampoo reg $4 and the 5/25 took off .50 = .50
$1 off Simply Olay body wash reg $2.25 and the 5/25 took off .25 = $1
$2 off Speed Stick gear deodorant reg $2.95 and the 5/25 took off .45 = .50

They have food, household, personal care, paper product and more types of coupons.  It's free to set up your account. No coupons to print or clip and it's easy to use.  Just write down the coupons that you add to your account, take your calculator to the store and make sure you meet your $25 before tax in items.  At the register, enter your phone number in the keypad and watch the savings add up. 

I like to make multiple orders and that's why I make sure to meet my $25 and not go over by much.  I also use 2 accounts to add coupons too.  Just make your list.  Even if you don't want to use the digital coupons, you can still use the $5/$25 and save 20% of your bill.
