25% off any Car Seat

It's back...at Toys R Us, when you turn in any old car seat, you get 25% off the purchase of a new car seat! This is a great deal and a fantastic way to recycle your old car seat. Combine that with their rewards card, where you get points for purchases that add up to get you money off later...A sweet deal!

Did you know that car seats expire? Look at the bottom of your car seat, there should be an expiration date stamped on it. If you can't find one, you really ought to think about replacing it. Read on here for more information about car seat expiration. The APA recommends rear facing til age 2 or beyond, as long as the child still meets the requirements of the weight and height of the seat in the rear facing position. I'm passionate about car seat safety, please ask any questions and I will help find the answer.

Kitty sleeping with his favourite blankie in his fabulous car seat

I hope you find just the right car seat for you and your little one. I spent days researching just the right one for Kitty. He loves his car seat and I feel great knowing when he's in his car seat, he's as safe as possible. Enjoy your savings and keeping your kiddo safe. The deal runs at Toys R Us til 20 Feb, 2012.

What's for Dinner tonight?

MMMMMMM Food. I despise cooking, but love to bake, but sadly cannot bake all my suppers. I have been looking for fast, easy, inexpensive meals, as Kitty demands commands a lot of time and attention. Like most kids, he somehow knows when I am distracted-cooking, trying to do homework, or trying to talk on the phone. This recipe can be easily made for less than $10 and 20 mins. I think this recipe may be Kitty proof...Simple, straight forward and sure to be scrumptious!

Fajita-Chicken Wraps
  •  About a pound of Chicken Breasts (TIP: Buy in bulk to save money, bring home, separate and freeze into smaller quantities)
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 small pepper-any kind you like
  • Ranch Dressing
  • Whole Wheat Tortilla
  • Salsa
  • Shredded Cheese (TIP: Buy block cheese and shred yourself to save money!)
How to cook:

Sprinkle chicken strips with chili powder and garlic powder.
Coat a medium nonstick skillet with nonstick spray; heat over medium-high heat.
Cook chicken and sweet pepper strips in hot skillet over medium heat for 4 to 6 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and pepper strips are tender.
Add desired toppings and serve
Note: *To warm tortillas:  Wrap tortillas tightly in foil. Heat in a 350 degrees F oven about 10 minutes or until heated through.

Let me know what kinds of things you'd like to see in this blog...I'm always looking for ideas!

Well, my baby is a genius. Clearly. Don't we all like to think that about our babies? :) I've been working with Kitty on learning sign language, and it's going remarkably well.

Right now you can get them for $25 dollars, saving you 61%, which would make you a genius for saving money!

66% off Wedding Rings - Minnesota only

I have been receiving requests to help find thrifty ways to plan all things wedding. :) It seems to be the season as people are gearing up for when the nice weather rolls back around. Here in Minnesota, a few days ago it was 50 degrees and now we're back to around 0. Anywho, I have been looking into helping find thrifty ideas as several of my close friends are planning weddings on a budget. I stumbled across a great local deal here in Minnesota for $99 for a $290 Men's Tungsten Wedding Band or $2,200 for a $4,800 Women's Engagement Ring. To make the Engagment Ring deal even sweeter, if you buy it before Valentine's Day, you'll get a Pearl Necklace and a dozen red roses to go with it.

If you haven't heard of Tungsten, it is an amazing substance. It is 2 times harder than steel, 8 times harder than titanium and 10 times harder than gold or silver. It will hold up to every day wear and tear as well as much more.

If you want to score yourself this amazing deal, here's how. Act fast, this offer is only valid til Jan 24th 2012.
