Valentine’s Day recipes & discounts with MyMixx from Jewel-Osco

Last week I introduced you to the new MyMixx, My Savings app from Jewel-Osco. It instantly gives you access to current coupons and sales, lets you create your shopping list (and email it), and tracks your receipts and savings. Looooving it! This post was written in partnership with Jewel-Osco.

I like to save money, who doesn’t?! But as a mom of 2, working part-time outside the home, part-time from home, and volunteering or going to the gym frequently, I have. no. time.

The NEW MyMixx, My Savings app for Jewel Osco

A month ago we drastically changed our diets. We’re not “on a diet,” we’re changing our lifestyle habits. I threw away most junk food and sugary snacks. We’re eating as “clean” and whole as we can with lots of meats and proteins. My grocery shopping has completely changed, being mostly produce and meats, and it has also become more expensive. When I can find sales or coupons, it helps a lot!

That’s why I am loving the new MyMixx savings app I recently found for Jewel Osco stores. Our closest one is unfortunately

Holiday fashions with OshKosh B’gosh (coupon)

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’gosh. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

There are three main reasons OshKosh B’gosh is always one of my go-to brands for our kids: it’s quality clothing that’s durable and affordable, it’s always age appropriate (0-12), and it’s CUTE. I wore OshKosh when I was litte—I remember my mom saving to shop at OshKosh B’gosh and outfits from there were a special treat! We still have some

Baby Registry Tips: do you need all that stuff?

~Written in partnership with Walmart.com. All opinions are my own!

Creating a baby registry is sooooo much fun, but also soooo overwhelming. I remember walking into the store the first time with my husband to create our registry. Rows and rows of products, 5 (or 30!) different types of the same thing, what do we REALLY need and what can we do without? I had read about products but still felt unprepared! We asked for help, then we went home and changed the baby registry online—again and again (thank goodness for

Target Wedding Registry: gift card giveaway

~This post was written in a partnership with Target. All opinions are my own.

When my husband and I got engaged, we started planning for a wedding just over a year away. Plenty of time! Right? It seems like it, and I know many people plan in much less time, but wow does it go fast! There are so many steps and a hundred bazillion details. It can definitely be stressful at times, so I say right when you feel like you need a break… go register!

Creating a wedding registry was so much

New Year’s Eve party dresses

~This post on New Year’s Eve party dresses was written in a partnership with Dress First. All opinions are my own.

My “wardrobe” has taken a dive since becoming a mom… there’s a lot of yoga pants and comfy shirts. I don’t have as many nights out on the town like I used to so when those occasions come along I always feel like I have nothing to wear! Where’d my “party wardrobe” go?! So I’m always on the lookout for places I can get some great outfits and ordering online is even better–who
