Save time & Money with Instacart

As a Mom of three, grocery shopping with my kids can be a nightmare. I try to keep them entertained with snacks, toys, and electronics in hopes of shopping with no issues but it doesn’t always work. The kids are bored, they start fighting, crying and climbing out of the cart. I end up leaving with whatever I had time to grab, feeling incredibly frustrated and still without most of my groceries. Ideally, yes having a sitter for them to shop alone in peace would be great but it’s not always possible. So I either plan my shopping trips around my husband’s work schedule to go alone or bring them with me. Considering how quickly my kids go through food, toilet paper, and other household essentials, I needed a better solution. Finally, I came across my solution! Shopping from home with Instacart!

Shopping with Instacart is so easy and convenient. There have been so many times when I was either super busy and didn’t have time to go food shopping, or the kids and I were sick and I couldn’t leave the house. So the ability to have groceries delivered on my schedule is amazing! There is no subscription, you can use it as needed or upgrade to Instacart Express to get unlimited free delivery on orders of $35 and more. There are fees associated with your order and a tip is automatically added for your driver, but it’s worth every penny. A lot of the stores I shop at do not offer any pick-up service, so I was happy to be able to have them delivered through Instacart. I also find it so much easier to shop from home because I don’t add a ton of unnecessary items to my cart and just stick to my grocery list. I end up saving so much time and money, and shopping from home without chasing little ones around the store is amazing.

So how does Instacart work? All you need is a computer, iPhone, iPad, or Android device. You can either install the app or just use your browser to create an account and get started at Instacart. After creating an account, you simply pick a store, add items to your cart and checkout! Have your groceries delivered on your schedule, in as little as 2 hours or later in the week. That is the best part, groceries are delivered on your schedule, at a time that is convenient for you. As a mom with a never-ending to-do list, this is essential to me. Anything that makes my life easier is worth using.

Have you ever been to the Dollar Tree? If not, you are missing out! The Dollar Tree is this magical place where everything, is only $1! It’s a place where you can discover new treasures, have fun shopping, and find what you need at an affordable price. My kids LOVE going to the Dollar Tree because they know that they can pick out any toy of their choice, because everything is only $1, (as far as limiting how many items they get is another story lol!) Mommy loves shopping there too but I do tend to go overboard, especially around the holidays! During the holidays it’s so fun to find what cute stuff I can decorate with.

The Dollar Tree carries a variety of products including many trusted brands at extreme values. Some of the products you’ll find at Dollar Tree include housewares, glassware, dinnerware, cleaning supplies, candy, snacks, food, health and beauty, toys, gifts, gift bags and wrap, party supplies, stationery, craft supplies, teaching supplies, books, seasonal décor, and more! Everything you need for every day, every holiday, every occasion… and every single item is only $1 (or less)!

Not only do I love going to the Dollar Tree for Holiday Decor, but I also love to go when I am preparing for a party. There is a variety of party decor, tissue paper, gift bags, balloons, candles, and cards available. The Dollar Tree is always my first stop for all my party needs. Planning a party adds up and us Moms need to save when we can.

Since I was already a fan of the Dollar Tree, I was so excited to become an affiliate for their amazing company. I was even more excited to be able to share some BIG news with you! As of Aug. 30, Hallmark is bringing HUNDREDS of new cards to the Dollar Tree! This is a big deal for me, as I already love to get all my cards from the Dollar Tree. So I was anxious to see what samples were coming my way. I was sent two of the main types of cards that will be hitting stores Aug. 30th, Hallmark Expressions & Hallmark Heartline.

Both sets of cards had a variety of prints for every occasion. Birthday cards, Thank You cards, Baby Shower cards, and Sympathy cards, are just some of the many new cards available. All of the cards came in bold, colorful prints and designs. There is really something for everyone in this new collection from Hallmark!

There are over 6,500 Dollar Tree stores nationwide and on August 30th every store will carry Expressions from Hallmark, $1 each and Heartline a Hallmark company, 2 for $1. With hundreds of new greeting cards to choose from, you can celebrate every moment with your friends and family without breaking the bank!

Whether it’s a Birthday for Dad, a Graduation for your son, or a Retirement party for your co-worker, the Dollar Tree & Hallmark has got you covered with the quality you love and prices you can’t beat.

So make sure you head to your local Dollar Tree as of Aug.30th, to check out the new cards and any other goodies you find along the way.

Summer Styles with Gymboree

Summer styles (1)

The countdown is on! School is coming to an end and Summer Vacation will be here before we know it. Living in Florida is perfect for Summer, although it does get HOT! Luckily, we are surrounded by beaches and parks so we can have fun in the sun all Summer long.

girl-sitting-on-shore-1712854

This Summer we are going to stay close to home exploring all the local parks and beaches and getting outdoors. There is nothing quite like fresh air and sunshine to boost your mood. Plus, with three kids it helps them burn off some of their energy and get some exercise. By the time we get home, they are usually ready to relax and hopefully take a nap!

sunglasses-girl-swimming-pool-swimming-61129

Some of the outdoor fun will be in our own backyard this Summer with all the activities I have planned.

Water balloons, sidewalk chalk, water guns, hanging in the kiddie pool, bubbles, and more! Of course, indoor crafts are a must as well. My daughter is kind of obsessed with arts n crafts so I plan on looking up lots of fun stuff we can do together. Playdates with friends, splash parks, swimming, BBQs, the possibilities are endless! I am looking forward to having so much fun with my girls this summer.

Holiday Traditions with Gymboree

  I was compensated for this post.

theme-christmas-77078

The Holiday season is officially here! It’s such a magical time of year, especially as a kid! I remember growing up, Christmas was the one time of year I looked forward to. My sister’s and I would enjoy making our Christmas list for Santa. As the days got closer to Christmas Day, we would be so excited we couldn’t sleep. We would wake up bright and early on Christmas morning, ready to see if we got what we hoped for. Of course, there were more moments that made Christmas so special. We would buy hot cocoa, play Christmas music and drive around town looking at Christmas lights. We would also spend time baking cookies, watching movies, and spending time around the campfire. The holiday events, visiting Santa, the Christmas parades, and of course the Christmas tree! That was one of my favorite parts of Christmas as a kid, decorating the Christmas tree. I feel like a kid myself around the holidays and there is nothing better than sharing these moments with my own children.

Christmas theme cookies
