Let's make a deal

I love a good deal. Who doesn't?  Especially for a family like us on one income, I am all over coupons, specials, promo codes...you name it. I have a few fun sites I wanted to share with y'all. Some of them are a little out of the ordinary but fun to check out nonetheless. I am that girl who sits down on a Sunday afternoon and clips my coupons. I have my handy dandy coupon keeper in my purse and I never buy anything online without googling to see if there are any promo codes or specials offered. I love going to the store and spending $50 with a little note at the bottom of my receipt that says "you saved $24 dollars today".

Here are a couple sites to check out..

Coupons and discounts
  • www.couponmap.com - you type in your zip code and it will bring up deals in your area.
  • www.redplum.com - click on the coupons you need, download their free coupon printer software and print!
  • www.smartsource.com- same deal as redplum, i love this site!
  • www.livingsocial.com - send them your email with your city and they will send you fun deals for restaurants near by to spa services. FUN!
  • www.restaurant.com- buy gift certificates more then half off at your favorite local restaurants!
Other fun sites
  • www.nobetterdeal.com- random things. They sell items that have been returned & overstock from big retailers. A good place to catch a good deal!
  • www.shopgoodwill.com- I have never bought anything off this site but I have heard it is addicting like EBay. Fun to browse.
  • Google or check out your yellow pages under "hotel surplus". You can find some awesome furnishings from hotels at a steal!
Oh and one last super fun site that is great when you are in need to make a meal or bake a tasty treat is..
www.allrecipes.com Type in the ingredients you have on hand and it will put together an awesome meal!

Happy shopping!

Homemade Pop Tarts

To be honest, I’m not a fan of the boxed pop tarts but homemade ones make me weak in the knees. Our local coffee shops here in Tennessee sell them and they’re my guilty pleasure.  I decided to take a quiet Tuesday morning and make some with my sweet boy. 
Here’s what I did..

A healthier me.

Remember my Trust your gut  post?I feel like a whole new girl since I wrote that a month ago.  So many things have been confirmed and I feel like my happy healthy self again. 
All because of two things; 1. The gallbladder cleanse that I posted about.  Literally saved my gallbladder and my sanity.  No more stomach pain! And I can drink wine and margaritas without pain again! 🙌🏼
2. I found out that I have a sensitivity to gluten. It's still a mystery to me as to how I developed this but all I know is that when I do have gluten my joints hurt, I get awful headaches and an upset stomach along with bloating. 
Back to my first post about this... I took a "before picture" thinking I was going to 5-10 pounds and then post my "after" picture. 😂😂😂
Truth is, there are still plenty of calories in gluten free food. The other truth is I'm 80-20 gluten free. I still enjoy a few non-gluten free treats here and there (and then pay for it later). 
I love food. I reward myself wit…

Trust your gut

If you've followed me on Instagram for a while you've seen that I've been struggling with pain, nausea and some other lovely side effects every single time I put something in my mouth. 😭I've been in the ER, to a specialist and was about to go in for a hidascan before I canceled it 20 hours before I was to go in.  I was uneasy about the scan in the first place. I knew it was going to show issues with my gallbladder. I had every symptom. I also knew that the next step after the scan was surgery to remove my gallbladder. I know it's an organ that isn't quite necessary but being a mom with 4 small babes, surgery wasnt the best option.  I mean it would be nice to have an excuse to lay around for a bit but let's be real, that wouldn't even happen. 🤦🏼‍♀️ #momlife I felt this super strong thing come over me the morning before to scan telling me to cancel it and change my lifestyle a bit.  I love food y'all. That's no surprise. I have 17 pounds to lose to…
