College Saving Tricks for Moms

by Jennifer Wieland

As a mom, it is your job to keep everyone on track. You are responsible for ensuring everyone is fed and clothed. You also have to think ahead to college. By taking control and starting a college savings account for your children, you can help to give them a bright future. However, when finances are tight, as is the case in many homes, it can be tough to figure out how to save. Here are some college savings tricks you can enjoy.College Saving Tricks for Moms

Know the Options

While you certainly can open a savings account to put money aside for your child’s college, there are some other options that allow you to make more use of your money. The most popular choice is a 529 plan. You can either use a 529 savings or 529 prepaid tuition plan. The savings plan is similar to a retirement account except you can get a lot of tax breaks with them. The money in these accounts is invested to hopefully help build it at a quicker rate.  The prepaid tuition plan, as the name suggests, lets you prepay tuition at your chosen institution at current rates, which can save you big on inflation. Reviewing your college savings plan options is a good first step.

Develop a Plan for Saving

Before you can start to save, you need to know you have the money to do it. You should go over your budget and add in college savings as an expense. Putting it in your budget makes it much easier to just slip the money away each time you pay bills.
You also can go over your bills and try to find a way to reduce them. Often shopping around or just calling in can help you get lower rates. A good trick for saving on insurance is to visit a local insurance office. The face-to-face interaction makes things more personal and encourages them to work hard to find you a good deal.

Give Up Something to Help Out

Sometimes extra money is hard to come by. However, most people have one or two things they spend money on that they don’t really need. Fast food lunches and expensive coffee drinks are two examples. These things may be something you really enjoy but cutting them out or just cutting them down can free up a nice amount of money that can go towards the college savings.

Use the Grocery Store Trick

When you are shopping for groceries, always hunt out the deals. These days most grocery store receipts will include a line that tells you how much you saved. This leads to a nice trick to saving money easily. Every time you grocery shop, you put whatever you saved in a savings account. This can add up really fast, especially if you shop for deals and use coupons.
Saving money for your kid’s college expenses doesn’t have to be a stressful endeavor. You can work ways to save into your everyday life easily. It is all a matter of just being a bit more aware of how you spend and making a few new choices in what you spend.

Are you or did you save for your child(ren)’s college?

ReadyRefresh by Nestlé® is Keeping FORO (Fear of Running Out) at Bay

ReadyRefresh by Nestlé® is Keeping FORO (Fear of Running Out) at Bay #NoMoreFORO
Thank you to ReadyRefresh℠ by Nestlé ® for sponsoring this blog post. All opinions are my own.

 

Have you been consumed by FORO (Fear of Running Out) this summer? Has the heat and humidity gotten to you and caused you to consume a higher rate of liquid refreshment? ReadyRefresh is here to keep your family hydrated and FORO (Fear of Running Out) at bay this summer!

ReadyRefresh by Nestlé® is Keeping FORO (Fear of Running Out) at Bay #NoMoreFORO

What is FORO?

Buying bottled water by the individual bottle means you’re spending way too much time restocking at the grocery store. Buying in bulk keeps your shopping trips infrequent, but those cases are so heavy, and big box stores are energy-sapping circuses. With that dreaded trip to the store looming, a sense of anxiety takes over. As your bottled water supply dwindles, you begin to hoard those last few bottles for your kids, your spouse, or even just a thirstier moment. This is a phenomenon referred to as The Fear of Running Out—denying yourself and your family the bottled water they want just so you don’t have to go back to the store or add another inconvenience to your day. 

We spend a ton of our summer at our local park pool, the beach, and neighborhood parks. Making sure the kids stay hydrated is a must! Making sure they hydrate with great-tasting drinks without the sugar and caffeine that’s no good for them is my mission as a mom.

ReadyRefresh by Nestlé® is Keeping FORO (Fear of Running Out) at Bay #NoMoreFORO

A FORO Study was done and this is what they learned

  • More than half of all surveyed (52%) experience FORO at least once a week.
  • 69% of those surveyed experience feelings such as stress, anxiety and worry when household items start to run low.
  • 69% of survey respondents run low on everyday household items at least once a week.
  • According to survey respondents, bottled water is the beverage of choice in homes (36%), workplaces (46%), and at school (36%).
  • Nearly half of all full-time working parents (46%) surveyed say they ration or replace everyday household items with a less desirable alternative at least once per week, in order to avoid running out completely.
  • According to the survey, when running low on household items, food (67%), toilet paper (51%) and bottled water (43%) are the most likely to be restocked first – ahead of items like milk (20%) and diapers (7%).
  • Of those surveyed, three out of four (75%) working parents would buy more household items in bulk if it was more convenient.
  • According to the survey, more than half of full-time working parents (55%) say that daily errands keep them from spending quality time with friends and family.

Why is it important to have good drink options available at all times?

Today, beverages account for 47% of added sugars in the U.S. American Diet and more than 13% of calories consumed per day. The newly released 2015 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that the primary beverage consumed should be either calorie-free – especially water – or should contribute beneficial nutrients such as fat-free and low-fat milk and 100% juice.

Replacing a single 12-ounce, 140 calorie sugar sweetened beverage with water each day for a year can cut more than 50,000 calories from one’s diet. That’s a lot of calories that I’m sure nobody wants their kids ingesting on sugar.

I know for me, since I have been following a Keto lifestyle making sure I have healthy, carb- and sugar-free drink options are an absolute must! Without them I’d be reduced to drinking regular tap water and sometimes a girl wants a little more flavor than that in what she’s drinking.

ReadyRefresh by Nestlé® is Keeping FORO (Fear of Running Out) at Bay #NoMoreFORO

Why I’m on board with ReadyRefresh

My husband is a soda junkie and at his age I don’t think I’ll ever get him to get past it. I myself am a water and tea girl since giving up sugary drinks a few years back. (One of my best decisions ever!) The problem I face is that kids are impressionable and if they see daddy with soda and it’s in cans and bottles than can be easily grabbed then we end up battling about why they shouldn’t be having that. 

I have noticed that if I have other, healthier options on hand that they will drink those instead. If there are ice cold bottles of water and tea then they will grab that to take to the park, beach, pool or anyplace else we may be headed in the hot summer sun.

Added bonus… with all of the types and flavors of waters and teas I can change up my daily drink routine as the mood strikes me.  This is where the video will be embedded.

I am part of the Restaurant.com Review Crew. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

 

I like to be able to take the kids for some one on one time periodically. It’s helps to let them know they are special to me and that I want to spend time with just them and hear about anything they want to say. When you have multiple kids it can get hard trying to find that balance to give each child the attention they need and deserve, That’s why these little mommy dates are so important. Luckily, Restaurant.com helps to keep our dates affordable.

Recently I had a mommy date with my daughter, I hopped onto Restaurant.com and found a gift certificate for a family favorite chain of Mexican restaurants, Pepe’s. I printed it off and then we were on our way to our mommy date.

Mommy Date Time Made Affordable Thanks to Restaurant.com #ReviewCrew

My daughter being the baby of six and the only girl truly believes the universe revolves around her thanks to all the older males in her life treating her like a princess. So for her our mommy date was just some time for her to beam and tell me all about everything that she finds fascinating at the moment while eating food she loves. 

Mommy Date Time Made Affordable Thanks to Restaurant.com #ReviewCrew

Chips and salsa, tacos, tamales and of course her favorite pink lemonade made the meal perfect!

A Luvs High Value Coupon + $100 AmEx Gift Card Giveaway

by Jennifer Wieland
Save Big Money This Weekend with Luvs $2 Coupon #ShareTheLuv
This review was made possible by iConnect and Luvs. I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.

I remember with my first baby I had this vision in my mind of how everything would be. I’d be showered, dressed and looking lovely everyday with an utterly adorable baby in my arms. A baby whose sheer cuteness and love would make everything sunshine and roses. Then reality smacked me in the face! A shower was a treat and the dark circles under my eyes made me look like the walking dead. Oh yeah, and that adorable baby? He went through a lot of formula, dirtied up more clothes than I care to think about and don’t even get me started on diapers and how much they were putting a ding in my bank account. Then I discovered Luvs diapers and while all of the rest of that stuff stayed the same my bank account was taking a much smaller hit and my laundry pile was not as big thanks to less diaper accidents. Now you can let Luvs help your family budget and save big money this weekend with a Luvs high value coupon ($2) and an Ibotta $3 rebate!

After diapering six bottoms of my own over the past 23 years I know how important a great quality diaper is. I also know that great quality doesn’t have to mean big bucks. What makes Luvs standout in the crowded diaper market?

  • With large refastenable stretch tabs, fastening Luvs diapers is super easy for Mom, plus she can rest assured knowing that she’s giving baby a secure, snug fit again and again.
  • With Leak Barrier Leg Gathers and a Leakguard Core, plus our largest absorbent area ever, Luvs makes life easier for busy Moms by helping to keep leaks in the diaper where they belong, so baby stays dry and comfortable.
  • A contoured shape hugs baby for a great fit, and a cottony material feels soft and gentle on baby’s skin.
  • The Luvs Money Back Guarantee: We feel so strongly that our diapers will keep your baby leak-free that we’ve guaranteed them! If you aren’t satisfied with the leakage protection of Luvs, we’ll refund your money. See our website, www.luvsdiapers.com, for details.
  • Luvs diapers are available in sizes newborn through 6, and can be found at mass, discount and grocery stores where baby care products are sold.
  • Luvs is the official diaper of experienced parents. When parents choose Luvs over Huggies Snug & Dry, they get outstanding superior overnight protection that locks away wetness 2X better, and they turn diapers into dollars by saving up to $150 per year.

Four Food Prep Ideas for Meals That Make Dieting Easier

by Jennifer Wieland
Four Food Prep Ideas for Meals That Make Dieting Easier

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Glad. The opinions and text are all mine.

Meal time can be a mad dash of trying to throw things together during a busy afternoon or after a long day of work. Add trying to follow a strict diet for health reasons while your family gets to enjoy foods you can’t and having to worry about two different meals can become a stressful nightmare. It can also lead you right down the path of failure for your special diet. That’s why these four food prep ideas for meals that make dieting easier.

Wash, Prep and Measure Produce

Getting all of your produce washed, prepped and measured is an easy thing to do. So easy in fact that it’s easy to think I can do this later. What inevitably happens for me though is that those few extra minutes at lunch or dinner can wreak havoc on my best laid plans.

Cook, Slice, Dice and Portion Out Protein

I am following a Keto diet. That means unlike most diets I get to indulge in some delicious fat and protein options. While that makes it easier to stick to the diet it also means for busy people like me is that I need convenient grab and go options for throw together meals. Cooking meats, eggs and bacon in advance, slicing and dicing them and measuring them out and packaging them up in containers makes for quick breakfasts, lunch and dinner add-ins. These make great additions to a quick salad or stir the meats and eggs together for a quick breakfast that packs a protein punch.

Measure Out Snacks for Grab and Go Convenience

One of the things that makes eating badly so easy is that most houses and every grocery store is stocked with convenience foods that are all nice and neatly packaged up in grab and go containers. Makes your life easier right? No, not when you realize your backside is expanding as a result. Instead find healthy options that work for your particular diet. Measure out individual portions and package them up in plastic containers for the same grab and go convenience. This means no falling off your food wagon when the munchies hit.

Prep Your Drinks

Prep your drinks? What? This is important. A lot of time people mistake hunger for thirst. Most people don’t get enough fluids and healthy fluid intake is a key to getting healthy. I have a water bottle system that I use. I fill up the bottles each night and pop them into the refrigerator. This does two things. It guarantees that I’ll have ice cold water to drink and I have my fluids measured out for the day. I then know and can easily keep track of how much water I’ve drank.

Now that you are on your way to making eating healthier easy it’s time to clean up all of that prep work . To keep your kitchen smelling fresh after cleanup and to keep bad smells from food at bay I reach for Glad® OdorShield® Gain™ Original Scent with Febreze® trash bags. After all, no matter how good your food is if your kitchen smells like day old fish nobody will want to eat.

What Makes Glad Odorshield Gain Original Scent Trash Bags a Kitchen Must?

– 5-day Odor Control guaranteed (even the most perceptive noses won’t notice the trash)
– Neutralizes odors while leaving behind the fresh original scent of Gain™
– Reinforcing bags help add strength to help you avoid trash disasters
– No need for compensating behaviors like wrapping trash to hide the smell
– Available in a variety of scents
– Check out glad.com for more information.
