Savvycents Wallet Review

I had the opportunity to review a pink Savvycents wallet by Melinda Claudpierre. It arrived at my house like a great Christmas gift! I love anything that will help simplify my life in any way possible. My children were even excited to see what mommy was about to open. Right away I switched over from my old wallet to my nice new pink leather Savvycents wallet!

It comes with 6 slots for your bank and store cards, and 2 spots for your driver's license and health card. An accordion folder with tabs along with tab stickers for grocery, gas, restaurants, clothing, gifts, personal, entertainment and miscellaneous, along with 8 blank ones to customize yourself. There is a spot for your cheque book and a pen!

This wallet has been great to organize my spending for groceries and keeping track of my gas reciepts. I also have used it more than once at work. I work with supported independent living individuals with developmental disabilities and this has come in very handy with grocery trips or trips to the bank.

I highly recommend this wallet to anyone who is on the cash budget system or just like the option for my space in a wallet. I have already recommended it to people who have also seen it and commented on what a nice wallet it is!

Where to buy: Visit Savvycents to read more about this great wallet and order one for yourself. They would also make a great Christmas gift!!

**This review was written by Coupon Mom Canada on behalf of Savvycents. No compensation was rewarded however I recieved a complimentry wallet for review purposes. Thank you.**

Between the Lines

My First Reward

I've been having a lot of fun with blogging. Slowly I am learning more and more everyday. I do still need to learn more about the blog site to make it fresh and more me. But putting that aside I am loving having a blog. I'm very interested in Product Reviews, since I've always loved trying new things and letting family and friends know how I like or don't like them. This way I can tell the world!

Anyways to get to the real point of this post. I won an award from A Motherhood Experience for the good job I am doing on my blog! Thank you Alyssa for the award :) It made my day to find that in my email inbox~

There are rules to accepting such an award and they are:

1. Accept the award and post it on your blog along with the name and blog link of the person granting you this award.
2. Pay it forward to 15 other bloggers you have recently discovered.
3. Contact the bloggers and let them know they've been chosen.

I don't think I can give it back to A Motherhood but if I can it goes back :)

CSN Stores

So lately the children or mostly Ds has been talking about getting a new bed. He would like a bed with the other bed up high as he says. So we have been looking for a nice bunk bed set at a good price. I found a great place to find anything you would like for a bedroom including really cheap bedroom furniture! I have found some really nice beds for both Ds and Dd. Maybe enough for mommy and daddy. If you haven't been to the CSN Stores they have over 200 different stores to shop at online! Great prices also.

I think my favorite department of the CSN Stores is the cookware and accessories. Just have a look at what I am thinking of getting :)

Python Printable Halloween Games Review

With Halloween pretty much around the corner, or as I am told by my 4 year old. What better way to get in the mood for Halloween then a Printable Halloween Party Games Pack! I had the opporuntity to review this Halloween Party Games Pack from Python Printable Games.

The Review I have had a lot of fun playing the trivia games with my hubby. The kids are not old enough for those yet but Dh and I have played them while just relaxing after the kids go to bed. Some are pretty tricky that they get you thinking. Lots questions from older movies, or books, etc to the 2000's.

The kids have had a lot of fun coloring the coloring pages or the game pieces. They have really enjoyed the matching game and also pin the head on the monster, where there is a monster body and eight different heads to pin on him. I'm actually hoping to get pictures the next time they play it since the batteries needed charging last time.

I really think the game Left, Right are a lot of fun. This game pack includes one for the Fall and one for Halloween. If you have never played Left, Right, it's where everyone sits or stands around in a circle with a gift or loot bag/candy and then one person reads out a story. Everytime you hear Left you pass the item to the person on your left. Same thing goes when you hear Right. When the story is done that is the item you get to keep. I've played it at christmas parties, lots of fun.

There is a great variety of games, coloring pages, trivia, mazes, word searches. Great for spending an afternoon inside with the family.

Cons: The activities are in groups (Chilren, Teens, Adults) on the website but when you download they are all together. I wish they would come in the groups. It would be easier to find what you are looking for if it was in different file folders.

Where to Buy: You can check out all the game packs at Python Printable Games.
Python is giving my readers a sample of coloring pages along with a $5 off coupon til November 30th,2010. Connect with me on Twitter, Facebook or email me at foreverhealthyaloe (at)hotmail (dot) com and I will pass along the file :)

What is available: Python has the following game packs available to the buyer:
Father's Day Games pack
BBQ Party Games
Slumber Party Games
Picnic Games
30th Birthday Games
40th Birthday Games
50th Birthday Games
Printable Trivia Quizzes
United States Trivia
Harvest and Thanksgiving Games
and of course the Halloween Games

Beautiful Creatures Review & Giveaways!

I had the opportunity to review a great Children's CD from South Africa. Beautiful Creatures was formed in South Africa in November 2004 by Alan Glass, Ed Jordan and Paul Choritz who felt there was a need for “Parent Friendly” children’s music. They produce Children's music, books and games. The CD I am reviewing is the first one in the Beautiful Creatures series. There are 10 songs, about animals - Imvubu the Happiest Hippo, Lucas the lazy Lion, Lorenzo the luckiest Lizard just to name a few. All with great tunes and funny lyrics to get your kids dancing and singing. The cds are uniquely South African with great educational lyrics, also sophisticated for both parent and child to enjoy together.

I put the cd on while baking with the kids, right away they both got into the beat and started dancing. I would have to say one of my favorites is the African lullaby. Very soft music great for relaxing or putting baby to bed. I love that it is educational and fun at the same time. The music tells about the animals characteristics so children can learn all about Lions, Warthogs, Hippos, Elephants, Lizzards and more.
This cd is really geared for all ages. The sounds are not too loud for baby, or toddler but older children and parents can enjoy the music also. I recommend you to check out Beautiful Creatures!

Hair Cut

Ds and Dh's hair grows crazy fast! Dh used to have a lady he worked with cut his hair for next to nothing which was great, thing is she moved almost 5 hours away! So no more cheap haircuts for him. Ds on the other hand would go somewhere in town ranging from $9-$15. I always find it hard to get out to the hair dressers so Ds usually would go a few weeks longer than he should. How is one way to fix that and save money? Go out and buy a clipper set. So thats what I did! Never used them in my life, only ever trimmed my own hair and now I'm going to cut my Dh and Ds hair. Scary! well not really. Once you cut a couple times and get the feel of the clippers it's not so bad. I've given both Dh and Ds a haircut and Ds will likely get another one before school starts next week. Now for the before and After. Ds took 2 sittings so this after is from the first. He didn't want to sit still. I will get a good after up later :)

Just my luck

I wrote one day about being tired and having a sleep clinic appointment, well just my luck I would come down with a head cold the night before the test :( I called the lady this morning and she said that I shouldn't come with a cold but she could rebook it two weeks from now. Really? I just want to get it done and over with. Plus I used vacation time instead of sick time. Well I guess two weeks isn't the end of the world but it does sort of upset me since I was nervous to go in the first place. Oh well a few more weeks before I know what is going on..Hopefully I will know.
