Barbara's Cereal Review and Deal!

I have to come in to write this review before I have to dash away from my laptop yet again. Ahhh the duties of a mom to an infant! Anyway, so I'm always on the hunt for deals and steals. Recently I decided I wanted to try Barbara's cereals because my kids could really use a more wholesome choice for breakfast. I'm hesitant because they're a bit more expensive per box than our tried and true favorites. I saw recently that Safeway has these cereals marked down to just $3.99 per box. They're usually $5.99 here, and the size is rather small for such a cost. So I simply never purchased one. Then, one day I found coupon deals that I couldn't pass up!

Deal run down:

Wow! So with this deal I snagged a box. Who wouldn't? I was hesitant to let my kids try it because sometimes these healthy cereals are pretty bland. I grabbed a box of the peanut butter puffins, in hopes of it becoming a favorite over the old *other brand* peanut butter cereal. To my surprised, the kids loved it. It's got a nice crunch and a decent flavor. I'm in shock. My picky autistic son chowed down and asked for more. It seems to stay crunchy enough for their liking. The flavor is a bit different than I was expecting. I don't mean that in a bad way. It's just not the friendly over-sugared garbage I've become accustomed to. I actually could see eating this over *my* personal favorite peanut butter cereal.

If you're wondering about Shopmium, it's an app that is available for Android and iPhone platforms. It's available for free on the Play Store and Apple App store. What you do is check to see what offers they have that week. If you decide to purchase the product, all you have to do is scan the barcode and submit your receipt. To submit the receipt, you simply take a picture of it with the feature within the app. SO easy, and your reward can be deposited into your paypal account lightning fast!

Hopster is a coupon program that relies heavily on social media and activities to "boost" your coupons. I traded 1,000 points to boost my coupon from $1 to $2. That's a pretty sweet deal considering their activities are pretty simple. All you need is a printer, and you're all set!

Fisher Price Rock N Play -- HOT Deal!

It has been months since I was able to blog. I'm back and ready to blog like a mad woman. This time I'm bringing you a HOT deal on the Fisher-Price Rock n Play sleeper. This sleeper is an inclined seat with a vibration feature. It is on a rocking base (does not rock itself), and does rock well on carpeting. I've found it reclines just enough for a reflux baby and seems to be very comfortable for baby. We bought one at the recommendation of other moms and at first, my son was not fond. He had been sleeping on my chest for a week, so of course a seat is no replacement. I was desperate to actually get sleep, so the Rock N Play was purchased. Now, we love it. The majority of his naps are in it now. I think it's a nice item to have, reflux or not!

It is a little tricky to install. The pipes must slide together. I'm a fairly weak person and did it on my own. I was a little sweaty and frustrated, but otherwise happy. The completed construction is sturdy and seems reliable. The inner seat features a harness for safety and a set of plastic toy rings. Overall, this is an amazing value at the current price.

Right now for this particular print, there's a $5.00 coupon and it ships free! Fisher-Price Newborn Rock n' Play Sleeper, Ducky

Graco My Ride 65 $97.99!! Great deal!

So we're expecting our 4th child. It's no secret that I hate those infant type car seats.. aka the bucket seats. They have a convenience to them, but.. let's be honest here. How long does that convenience last? Not very long. I used one for my boys, and I think after the first couple months of their lives that convenience went away. They would wake up when it was moved. They would cry because the angle was weird. They were SO heavy in it. UGH the weight of the bucket alone is enough to haul around. It's nice to snap it into your stroller, but I hardly even use a stroller anyway. I love babywearing.. or just using my stroller as is. So, when my third was born we went with a convertible seat right away. I was a little nervous at first that it might not work out. What I learned is that for us, the infant seats are a waste of money for a short lived convenience. So my choice of a convertible seat from day one was a success. We will be doing this again because of that. My seat of choice was a Graco My Ride 65. I felt it was supportive and cushioned enough for the comfort of a newborn baby. Oh how happy I was when we skipped all the unhappy phases of car rides like I had with my boys until they swapped to new rear facing seats! It is a little on the bulky side, but I would recommend this to friends and family. -- Click the link below to see a HOT deal on a Graco My Ride 65.. all prints just $97.99! with eligibly prime or super saver shipping. These normally sell for 140-150ish, so this is a great deal!

Geeky Gadgets This Holiday Season

Okay, I am gonna geek out here for a bit. It's no secret that my husband and I happen to be a little on the geeky side. So I always try to put up great gift ideas for the holiday season. It's hard to shop for your techie family member or friend if you don't have a list of things they like. So, I'm here to help! Feel free to comment with questions or ask for more ideas. I always enjoy hearing from my readers.

First up, the Nest thermostat. Firstly, while this is indeed a very cool gadget to have.. I would actually recommend this to one and all. It is easily programmable from your computer, tablet or phone. The settings are easy to navigate, and the biggest bonus is that it will save you money on your electric and heating bills by optimising the settings. We got one approximately 4 months ago. I couldn't be any happier with it! It retails for about $250 USD

Nest Learning Thermostat - 2nd Generation T200577

BRING BACK THE SHOW!! Firefly is arguably one of the best Sci-fi shows to ever grace the air. With everyone's favorite Nathan Fillion (*swoon*), this Joss Whedon series is absolutely a MUST have on DVD for any true geek out there. This set I've seen selling for about $20-25, but recently it dipped to just $5.99! Snatch it up quick because this price probably will not last!

Firefly: The Complete Series

Everyone needs a good set of ear buds. This set is really nice for just listening to music or making phone calls. The sound quality is high, and they seem to fit a wide variety of ears. With a 4 1/2 star rating out of 137 reviews, this is a very popular set of earphones. They are sure to delight any FPS (first person shooter) game fans, and other geeks alike. The rubber wires are high quality and kevlar reinforced. These earphones will last quite a while, and at their current price of $39.99.. they're a steal! A perfect deal for your loved one this holiday season. It is Prime or Super Saver shipping eligible!
