Save Money With Walgreens Prescription Savings Club! #CBias #SocialFabric

Over the years as the economy has become worse the cost of prescriptions and co-pays have become higher. I don't know why but it seems to be something happening all over. Right now most Americans are struggling and need a break more than ever. Fortunately Walgreens cares. They have come up the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club. I was given the opportunity to shop and join the club. Before I left to go to Walgreens I wanted to checkout the savings club and what it offered.
After reading that information I was so happy to know that I will be saving a decent amount of money. But how much do the prescriptions costs, you ask, well I just to happen to have that information here.
So basically you pay $5, $10 or $15 on your prescriptions. You can also download a list of all the prescriptions covered and what tier they are. Along with all of that you get a 10% bonus on all Walgreens brands, W and Nice!, talk about great savings! Now I am off to my local Walgreens, it is about a block away, to shop and save. You can see my entire shopping experience here.
I brought my oldest son, Anthony and my oldest daughter, Kaylen, along with me. You are never too young to learn about saving money and getting the most out of your money. 
I love walking into Walgreens and seeing the ads and coupon books right in front of you. They actually want you to save. And now if you have a smartphone you can look at the savings before you even get there. One of the great benefits about the savings club that I am so excited about is the fact that they cover some prescriptions that insurance does not. That is major thing for people with health problems. I absolutely love this club already!
I headed to the pharmacy to join and get my temporary savings card and my prescriptions. I will get my official card in about two weeks or less.
I am thrilled to be a part of this special club, the Walgreens #rxsavingsclub that is! So the next time you are at your local Walgreens you can look for a pamphlet like this, take a minute read it and join the club! You won't regret it.
You can visit the Walgreens website to read more about the Prescription Savings Club or just to shop! Also become a follower on Twitter @Walgreens and "like" Walgreens Facebook page.

Today Is Olivia's 9th Birthday!!! Her Birth Story...

I just have to share my story of my little Livy Loo (who now hates me calling her that in public, only at home Mom, gosh!) coming into the world. It was a typical day on July 28th, my then-husband and I had just had dinner and I was    going on maternity leave in a few days since I was eight months pregnant. So because I was use to braxton-hicks I thought nothing of it. Until the evening went on and I noticed they were getting closer together. So I called my doctor and they told me go straight to the hospital, that I was in labor! See with my first daughter it was all back pain, so the contractions were nothing compared to the back pain, I'll tell you her birth story later it was a long one!

So we went to the hospital and they gave me a few shots and said they would stop my labor that she was too early. So after a couple of these shots the labor wasn't stopping she was coming no matter what! Since I had a previous c-section, I had to have another. So she was born at 1:15am on July 29th. She was 7lbs but they still considered her premature. So her father and I got to see her for a whole minute, maybe even less, before she was whisked off to be put on oxygen. 

That's when I started to worry, was she okay? Did I do something wrong? We waited for hours, and her father and I were irritated that we weren't getting answers, but I was so exhausted and had a huge headache that I didn't have the energy to argue. We were only told she was okay. Finally about 4 hours after she was delivered they brought her in. Since I was strictly breastfeed only they had to. They were constantly poking her little feet to take blood to check on her, until her Dad said they weren't going to poke her anymore! She ended up being fine, smaller than our first daughter she seemed so tiny. She gave us quite a scare that day and ever since I think her father and I have thought of her as a little miracle. 

Oh and by the way my headache ended up being a spinal headache so after days of torment (the staff didn't believe it was that bad) I was finally given a blood patch to stop it. Which was the beginning of my health nightmare but that's for another day. 

So now that I have shared the birth of my second daughter, Olivia Rylee, my sweet, smart, loving, kind-hearted, beautiful little girl. Of course I could go on and on about my kids and how great they are because I am like every other mom out there that thinks their kids are special and the best! No but really mine are! ;)

Smile Brilliant! Review & Giveaway!!!

For so many years I have wanted to whiten my teeth, but going to the dentist can be incredibly expensive. Oh and the fact that I have MAJOR anxiety just walking into a dentist's office doesn't help. I was so excited when I was given the opportunity to review Smile Brilliant! Which is a at home teeth whitening system that comes with the whitening gel, a protective trays and the high intensity lighting. 
The Smile Brilliant! system was so easy to use. I used mine for just 20 minutes a day and received results in just a couple of days. I was impressed that they include the protective tray that can be formed just for your teeth if you would like. Then the Ultra-Blue LED lighting that helps whiten your teeth gives you great results. You can use the coupon code below that was provided by Smile Brilliant! 
One very lucky winner will receive the Smile Brilliant! Professional Teeth Whitening System thanks to Smile Brilliant!

My Husband's Makeover #MaLoUnderwear #CBias #SocialFabric

My husband Rene is a very humble, he is willing to help anyone that asks and is so low key. Giving him a makeover is going to be a slow process. Honestly the first thing that he really, really needed was some new underwear. I was so excited to get the chance to get him some new underwear! I was chosen to go shopping at Target and pick up the newest brand MaLo by Mario Lopez. I wanted Rene to pick out his own undies so he came with me, as well as our daughter Isabella.

Our first stop was to grab a couple of drinks. Isabella grabbed an Icee, here she is enjoying it.
Now off to find the MaLo underwear in the Men's Fashion area! We had a little bit of a hard time finding the display but Rene has a good eye. Here is the package he chose.
As we continued to shop Isabella decided that she was going to be the one to take photos for me. Here she is taking the picture and that's the picture she took. I think she did a great job, now she wants her own camera!
After our shopping trip we went straight home. My husband was excited to take his new underwear out of the package. Unfortunately my husband wasn't willing to model his studly body in his new MaLo underwear, but he did lay them out so I could take pictures of them.

Now since this makeover is about changes I wanted to share with you the one thing he wears year round. Oh and I'm sorry honey but they have got to go!
These shorts have seen better days. They have a few stains, holes and they are fraying in some spots. Now I just need to convince him that we can find another pair that he will love just as much. He has other shorts and jeans but he likes to wear these a lot
We had a fun time shopping together, you can see my entire shopping adventure here. I want to thank Mario Lopez for coming up with #MaLoUnderwear, they are soft and we will be purchasing more in the near future. You can follow Mario Lopez on Twitter or "like" his new Facebook page for MaLo Underwear.

Tiger Balm Review & Sweepstakes

For many, many years now I have tried so many pain relievers. Everything from pills to creams and in between! No seriously I have. Having Fibromyalgia my muscles can tense up and the more I hurt the more I tense up, it's very irritating. I have some things that help but when I wanted something easier and I was having a hard time finding something that would work. Until now! I received the Tiger Balm Neck & Shoulder Rub and to my surprise it works! Like it really, really works!
All you need to do is rub some of the creamy, camphor-menthol blend on your neck & shoulders and wait a few minutes for the pain to ease. I love that the formula is water based so all I need to do is wash my hands once and the cream was off my hands. Unlike some other rub on pain relievers. The tube is small and convenient to put in my purse for those long days in the car, or to keep by my computer while blogging! 
If you go to the Tiger Balm Facebook page and "like" them, then you can enter  to win a trip for two to beautiful Mendocino County in Northern California. The sweepstakes includes airfare, hotel and $1,000. And right now you can also save $2.00 on Tiger Balm products.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

The Odd Life of Timothy Green Sweepstakes

When Timothy Green unexpectedly shows up in Stanleyville, he changes the lives of the people he meets forever. Inspired by that, Disney has created an application (http://di.sn/MagicalMoments) that allows fans of THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN to upload and share photos of magical moments from their own lives. When a photo is submitted, it becomes a part of the Magical Moments Photo Collage:


In addition, the application is hosting a sweepstakes where users can enter to win the grand prize - a Frigidaire Affinity washer and dryer! 25 first-place winners will receive a promo card for a photo book from Shutterfly!

So have some fun and add some photos that fit the theme! Sharing that photo  could make you the proud new owner of a Frigidaire Affinity washer & dryer!!

Frigidaire "Adventures in Clean"

Frigidaire has come out with a great new collection called the Affinity Collection. Since Frigidaire has come out with Affinity they would love to share some wonderful stain fighting tips from the laundry expert Tara Aronson as part of their "Adventures in Clean". 
Tips for Laundry & Stains:
  1. Immediately rinse or blot away spills on your clothes with cool water to prevent stains from setting.  
  2. Before washing stained garments, pretreat or prewash the spot using the Affinity’s Rinse & Spin cycle. If at first you don’t succeed, wash, wash again.
  3. To keep snags and lint to a minimum, zip zippers, button buttons, empty pockets, and brush away lint before tossing duds in the hamper.
  4. Check wet garments for remaining stains, and re-treat as needed before drying. Heat will set stains.
  5. Dry only full loads. Tumbling a handful of garments prolongs the drying time by reducing the tumbling.
By following those tips you will not only keep your clothes free of stains but it will also help keep your clothing to last longer. There are also some dreaded summer stains that are hard to get rid of but luckily Tara Aronson has some more great tips on these dreaded stains.

The best thing you can do for a better chance to rid the stain is to not let it dry, so blot excess, never rub. Also run under cold water, hot water can set a stain in. 

1. Crayon.
Scrape off as much of the colorful surface as possible using a plastic picnic knife. Apply laundry detergent directly on the stained area. Gently rub the detergent into the fabric then let sit several minutes. Launder using the hottest water the fabric can handle - or the Sanitize setting of your Frigidaire Affinity washer. Dry as usual.

2. Iced coffee.
Sponge the stained area with cold water. Apply a pretreater to the blight. Wash as usual and air dry. (I know I have spilled mine before, great tip!)

3. Chocolate (or chocolate ice cream).
Prewash the garment in warm water with a laundry detergent that contains enzymes using the Affinity’s Rinse & spin setting. Launder as usual, using the washing machine’s Normal setting. Dry as usual.

When you visit the Frigidaire Facebook page and share your own "Adventures in Clean" then Frigidaire will donate $1 to Save the Children, as part of their $750,000 commitment. All you have to do to share your "Adventures in Clean" is upload a photo and the online app will turn your photo into your very own movie poster! So tell everyone you know because everyone that participates will be entered to win a new Frigidaire Affinity washer & dryer featuring Ready Steam.

2 Year Membership to RedWeek.com & $40 PayPal Cash Giveaway!!!

If you've ever been on vacation you know how the expenses can add up quickly. Between the travel costs, the hotel, the food, and the entertainment it can get a little overwhelming. What if there was an easy way to cut those costs without jumping through several hoops? Keep reading to find out!

A little-known alternative to renting a hotel is to rent a timeshare. Did you know that you can rent a timeshare for up to 50% less than hotel rooms? When timeshare owners can't use their available weeks they rent their timeshare out. This is a win-win situation for everyone involved because the owner makes a profit and the renter saves money. RedWeek.com is an online timeshare marketplace that connects timeshare owners with potential renters and buyers. From their website:
Now a leader in the secondary marketplace, RedWeek is the largest, most reputable online timeshare marketplace with more than 1.5 million registered users and an A+ Better Business Bureau rating. Timeshare owners and travelers alike come to RedWeek to read our exclusive resort ratings and reviews, access our detailed resort information, and of course browse the thousands of timeshare rental and resale postings or advertise their own timeshare for rent or sale.
There are many ways in which renting a timeshare can preferable to renting a hotel besides the savings. Below you can see an example of the spaciousness available in a timeshare. No more cramped hotel rooms with no privacy. Timeshares also come with fully equipped kitchens. You can save potentially hundreds of dollars making your own meals rather than eating out three times a day. Eating out with small children can be quite the ordeal, and finding them something healthy to eat just compounds the problem. We all like to eat out on occasion, but being able to buy and cook your own food on your schedule can be very convenient. How many times have you had to wake up early and get everyone dressed just to go out and get breakfast?

My husband and I are planning a trip to Las Vegas this fall. We used to live there and we have lots of friends and family that we haven't seen in almost three years. I've been searching for a good place to stay because I am uncomfortable imposing on friends for an extended period of time. One timeshare I looked at was Tahiti Village. One of the biggest benefits to renting a timeshare in Las Vegas is you don't have to walk your children through a smoke-filled casino to get anywhere. Even without a casino there is a great list of amenities.
I really like that there are nearby amenities listed. Usually you can find a list when you get to your hotel room, but knowing beforehand is very helpful, especially if you plan on doing a lot of walking. Timeshares are incredibly family-friendly. Many not only have pools, but have hot tubs, whirlpools, lazy rivers, kiddie pools, and water pads. Arts and crafts classes are common, as are community BBQs and ice cream socials.

**One Mom's Moxie input: All of the writing above was not from me but written by someone else. Although I would love to vacation in a timeshare any time! My family and I love all the benefits of timeshare vacations and hope to have one soon!!!

Visit RedWeek.com to browse timeshare locations and amenities. You can browse by location or attraction including kid friendly and pet friendly options. With the purchase of a yearly membership you can contact owners to get started on your budget vacation!

RedWeek has generously offered to give away a two-year membership to one Giveaway Overload reader! That's a $29.98 value! In addition, Giveaway Overload has teamed up with Haute Single Mama, Shoes, Fashion, Fitness, and Roasted Beanz to give the winner $40 in PayPal cash to use on your vacation! Enter to win on the Rafflecopter below. Good luck!
