Thanks to ECOVACS ROBOTICS for sponsoring this post.

If you like saving money you are probably well aware that today and tomorrow are the epic deal days on This Amazon Prime Day sale has deals on everything from electronics to fashion to home decor. One thing you will want to grab during the sale? A robotic vacuum!

If you are a busy parent, a robotic vacuum is a life saver because it’s one less chore that you have to do each day (or, let’s be honest…multiple times a day if you have little ones dropping crumbs all over…) Lucky for you, ECOVACS ROBOTICS -the fastest growing global brand in intelligent home cleaning solutions- is on sale right now! Their DEEBOT 500 is an Amazon Prime Day exclusive on sale for $110 off (MSRP: $279.99 > $169) today and tomorrow.

I first learned about the ECOVACS ROBOTICS brand a couple years ago when I went to the Home & Housewares show in Chicago and got to see their line of robotic cleaners in action. I was extremely impressed with the innovative products they had including a window washer and a floor cleaner that vacuums AND mops. Every product in their line is thoughtfully made using the latest technology (which they are often first to market with) to make the consumer’s life easier.

The new DEEBOT 500 provides a versatile, everyday cleaning solution. With its multiple cleaning modes, DEEBOT 500 efficiently cleans your floor and has an appropriate cleaning mode for every job. You can control your robot with the ECOVACS Home App, a simple remote, or smart home system, and enjoy some free time while DEEBOT 500 cleans for you!

The DEEBOT 500 features:

  • READY FOR ANY MESS: Equipped with two side brushes and a main brush, DEEBOT will sweep, lift, and vacuum to clean an entire floor (Auto mode), a small area (Spot mode), or the edge of your floor (Edge mode)
  • VOICE & APP CONTROLS: Works with Alexa & Google Assistant voice commands. ECOVACS Smart App comes w/ 5+ advanced features including direct control, scheduling, status updates, cleaning modes, accessories status, etc
  • MAX MODE POWER: Increase suction power by up to 2X for particularly troublesome messes
  • UP TO 110 MINUTE RUNTIME: A longer battery life for even more cleaning! Auto-return & charging means your robot will always be ready to clean
  • BASIC FEATURES: Includes anti-drop & anti-collision sensors, auto-return charging, automatic software update, durable protective bumpers, high-efficiency filter, anti-scratch finish, a large easy-to-empty dustbin, large wheels for climbing thresholds, etc
  • 520ML DUSTBIN: A large dustbin ensures DEEBOT is able to clean large homes and is great for pet hair

My favorite feature is the ability to run the vacuum from the comfort of my couch while I’m holding my baby. Talk about multi-tasking! I can schedule it to run at a certain time or use the app or Alexa’s voice commands to start the vacuum. I also love the spot cleaning feature. This is going to come in handy when Emma starts crawling because I can have the vacuum spot clean under the table after my older boys have snack in the kitchen. The DEEBOT 500 sweeps, lifts, and vacuums and has a max mode, ensuring there is no food for baby to pick up as she’s crawling around (it’s amazing what little ones can find on even the cleanest floors!)

See the DEEBOT 500 in action by checking out my stories below!

Cleaning is just easier when you have a little robotic helper! So if you don’t have a robotic floor cleaner, what are you waiting for? Head on over to Amazon for this epic deal!






Bath-Time Fun On A Budget

#spon: I’m required to disclose a relationship between our site and Save-A-Lot. This could include Save-A-Lot providing us w/content, product, access or other forms of payment.

It is nearly summer here and all my boys have been talking about lately has been going outside to play. Playing outside for boys means all kinds of sports and games and fun on the playground. Most of all though, it translates into the boys getting dirty as they slide down the field, jump into sand and get covered in grass. After a long day of fun and play my boys need a good bath and a scrub down. Bath-time is after all just another way to have fun and the kids love drawn out baths with lots of bubbles. The only thing that is not fun is spending too much on bath products. Luckily Save-A-Lot and Suave have teamed up to help create bath-time fun on a budget.

For my kids baths mean another chance to get rowdy and splash and throw bubbles everywhere. Usually the kids try to dump extra of whatever they can to make more bubbles. The key to their ongoing happiness is to use tear free products so when the bath water splashes into their eyes it doesn’t sting. Suave has a great line that includes a tear free 2 in 1 shampoo and conditioner along with a body wash.

Spending less, means more bottles and more bubbles and happiness (Prices may vary on location). For my kids that just means more fun before bed.

Kids get silly and splash and they are happy. The only thing that makes them crabby after a bath is their unruly hair. Luckily Save-A-Lot and  Suave have a detangler made just for kids and the aroma of apple makes it very friendly to little noses.

Suave has a lot of kid friendly products but I’ve discovered that there are twice as many products for moms and dads. Save-A-Lot has savings for everyone in the family on Suave.

So as the summer comes and the weather gets hotter let the kids play. Let them enjoy playing outside and getting dirty and let Save-A-Lot and Suave be there at the end of the day to clean and refresh the whole family. To make the summer even more fun, Save-A-Lot is also having an exciting opportunity through their Facebook community, giving customers a chance to win a $25 Save-A-Lot gift card each week. For the chance to win a $25 Save-A-Lot gift card, check out the Smart Shopper Sweepstakes on the Save-A-Lot Facebook page:

Keep up with me and my family and see what adventures we find and let us know some of yours, too.

Stock Up and Save At Walmart (Gift Card Giveaway)

Disclosure: The Walmart gift cards and information have been provided by P&G.

It is finally spring! For my family this means we are spending more time outdoors. The kids have sports and activities so we are constantly on the go and that means I have less time to run my typical errands, like going to the store. Luckily I shop at Walmart so I can stock up and save on my family’s favorite P&G products with amazing savings. For a limited-time, Walmart has rollbacks and guaranteed low prices on our favorite P&G products, such as Tide laundry detergent, Charmin toilet paper, Bounty paper towels and more. The P&G line of products ranges from laundry detergents and paper towels to baby diapers. The stock up sale runs through Thursday, April 30th, 2015 .

The most important essentials I love to stock up on are paper towels and toilet paper. Everyone knows that when you have smaller children they always overuse both. My boys are 5 and 6 and they go crazy with the toilet paper. Those were the first things I intended to buy in order to stock up and save with Walmart.

Buying paper towels and toilet paper and even laundry detergent is easy. The challenging purchase for any guy is buying tampons. P&G and Walmart definitely make that an easier task. Just stock up and then not only do you save money, but you only have to go to the store once. No more emergency runs to the store to get tampons when she runs out.

No matter what essential items you need to stock up on there are many choices and the shopping is made easy at Walmart’s Stock Up and Save event. So spend less money and time at the store and more time enjoying the warmer weather.

Diamond & Amethyst Earrings Deal & A Giveaway {5 Winners!}

(Disclosure: I am receiving earrings in exchange for posting about this giveaway. Thoughts are my own.)

As a woman there is nothing more exciting than receiving a tiny little box on Christmas and finding diamond jewelry inside. I think the reason is because it’s something we normally wouldn’t buy for ourselves because it tends to be expensive. I have a secret to share though….

Today, December 6th, 1Sale has  1/10th ct Diamond and 6.5 Amethyst Earrings, value $199, for only $29.99 today!

At 1Sale every day is Black Friday getting up to 90% off retail prices on products each day ranging from electronics, housewares, jewelry, accessories and more. New daily deals are posted at 12 midnight Eastern time every day. And there is no need for group buying on 1Sale! Anyone can get these daily deals for gifts, personal shopping, etc.

Last Christmas I found an amazing deal that I thought was too good to be true and got a dream light and pillow pet set for only $20. I was so excited for my boys to get them. Make sure to check out the other great deals being offered today!


5 people will each win an earring set, valued at $199!!

NCAA Fun At Target {Giveaway}

(Disclosure: This is a compensated post but thoughts are my own.)

I talk about the Chicago Bears all the time but did you all know that I enjoy college ball, too? I live in Illinois but when I watch NCAA football or basketball the team I’m cheering for is from Ohio. Why? I went to college in Ohio! My school didn’t have a team in the NCAA since it was a small liberal arts school so the college team I adopted as “my” college team was Ohio State University {OSU}.

To make this sports season even more exciting, Target has teamed up with Dove Men+Care™, AXE®, Degree™ Men and the NCAA to create the “Save Your Season” QB Challenge. Enter the contest for your chance to win an Xbox One. Think your team is going to reign supreme? Recruit your friends to play against you!

Don’t forget to grab your favorite Dove Men+Care™, AXE® and Degree™ Men products, too. From now until November 9th, you’ll receive a $5 Target gift card when you buy any three participating Dove Men+Care™, AXE® or Degree™ Men products. Now, even if your team may stink this season, it doesn’t mean you have to.

Shopping At Gordmans For Clothing, Shoes, Holiday Decor & More {Giveaway}

This weekend I went shopping at Gordmans, a store that sells name-brand, on-trend fashion, home décor, gifts and more at 60% off department and specialty store prices. As a bargain hunter I was excited to see what deals I could find. I found racks of clearance clothing with signs that all items were an additional 50% off the clearance prices on the tags. I got great deals on kid’s clothes like an Adidas shirt for $2, a Nike outfit for $7, a MLB sports team tshirt for $3.50, Star Wars pajama pants for $2 and a Skylanders shirt for $3. I also found adult gym shoes for only $25 and got Jacob boots for $8. Even the things that weren’t on clearance were still a great price because of the low everyday prices that Gordmans has.

About Plum District’s School Fundraisers for Chicago (city only) and North Shore Schools

Plum District offers Chicago and North Shore schools the EASIEST SCHOOL FUNDRAISER EVER!

Every time a parent from your school (or their friends and family) subscribes to Plum District, Plum District will donate $3 to your child’s school.

And the best part – this fundraiser does not require ANY BUYING OR SELLING!

Here’s How It Works…

  1. Fill out this online form for your school.
  2. Plum District Chicago will send the appointed person your school’s unique referral link and an email template to send to parents.
  3. Publicize your school’s unique link to your school families and friends (email newsletter, fliers in the students’ backpacks, etc).
  4. For every parent that signs up as a new subscriber to Plum District using your school’s referral link, your school will receive $3!

Some of the Logistics

  • There is no cap on the number of people that can sign up (and no limit to the amount of money your school can raise).
  • Plum District will send a check to your school within 4 weeks from the fundraiser end date.
  • No buying or selling is required.

School Fundraiser Contests

  • If you fill out the online fundraising form before September 30, your school will be entered into a drawing to win an additional $250.
  • The Chicago school that raises the most money for their school through Plum District’s fundraiser by October 31 will get an additional $300 for their school!
