Need an extra $100? Who doesn’t right?

Hello hello! We are finally back from Disney World and let me tell you something.  We will NOT be returning any time soon.  The amount of $$ spent hardly justifies the brief excitement my oldest son got from riding the bus to Magic Kingdom and the monorail over to Epcot.

To begin, both kids slept through Magic Kingdom – the entire walk around.  Then, my oldest hated the lifesize characters.  I believe his exact words were “GO AWAY! MOMMY NOOO!” as he jumped frantically into my arms.  I mean, I guess it’s good that Disney World has completely revamped their character greetings since I was a kid – now you have to make a fastpass appointment to even have a hope of meeting all the characters and taking photos.  They no longer walk around the parks willing to pose or sign autographs.  On the off chance you’re able to schedule a character dinner, be advised that all characters do not show up.  It’s up to the restaurant (and I’m assuming, ultimately DISNEY) as to which characters will be dining with you (and terrifying your children).  But, I digress.

What I really want to talk to you about is the fact that we all find ourselves in need of more $$ from time to time (or all the time), am I right?  Well I just got an email from Ebates letting me know that my $100+ check i on the way.  Yup, just in the nick of time because Disney World wiped us out!

Want your’s?  It’s so easy.  And guys, listen, once you’re a member, you can earn on anyone you refer as well! Up to $25 for referral, just for sharing the greatness that IS Ebates!

Intrigued yet?  How about this for some excitement – right now Ebates is offering up to 15% off at various stores to celebrate their birthday!  Check out the stores here! We’re talking over 200 stores, including: Nike, Saks off 5th, GNC, Coach, HP, Petco, American Eagle, Tarte, Michael Kors, FTD Flowers, JC Penney, Melissa & Doug, 1800 contacts (where I just stocked up and got $77 cashback on my order!) and so many more!

Sign up here and start earning!

Don’t forget to check out TopCashBack as well.  They often have higher cashback values than Ebates, but their referral program is often a little less.  They pay up to $10 per referral, but still worth it for doing exactly what you would be doing anyway – sharing the love for savings!

Happy savings!

Bay Area Family Activities & Discounts!

It’s almost summer (oh my!) and I’m always looking for something fun to do with the whole family.  We all know the Bay Area can be super pricey, so I went on the hunt for some Groupons to use locally.

Oakland Zoo – Up to 30% off!

Screen Shot 2017-05-01 at 7.59.52 AM

We’ve been here before when my first was 1 but it was a rainy day and we honestly weren’t that into it (my second had just been born).  I’m looking forward to getting back there with both kiddos and exploring all the different exhibits.  Both of them love animals and making all the noises (which they did on the plane all the way back from NJ, not so cute…)  Click here below for the best deal!

Fairy Land – Oakland – 40% off!

Screen Shot 2017-05-01 at 8.01.20 AM

40% off 2 weekday passes! This fairytale themed little amusement park is convenient to get to from the Bay Area and is perfect for littles.  The grounds are small enough that they don’t seem overwhelming for toddlers and stroller-friendly.  My oldest enjoyed the train ride the most.  And did you know that Walt Disney got his inspiration for Disney World after visiting Fairyland?  Keep in mind, it’s a bit old so everything isn’t shiny and new, but for $6 per person, it’s a fun little activity for the day.  Click below to take advantage of the deal!

Bay Area Discovery Museum – Sausalito – up to 46% off!

Screen Shot 2017-05-01 at 8.06.08 AM

Nestled in the shadow of the Golden Gate Bridge on 7.5 acres of national park land, the Bay Area Discovery Museum draws children’s inquiring minds with a host of open-ended, hands-on exhibits modeled after the surrounding sea and city. By stimulating creative skills starting at an early age, the museum helps change the way the next generation learns and may contribute to the world. All activities and risk-friendly challenges are centered around fostering creativity as well as critical thinking and practical STEM skills.  We haven’t been but I’m looking forward to taking my kids!  Take advantage of this deal by going in a group of 6!

Alameda County Fair – Pleasanton – up to 40% off!

Screen Shot 2017-05-01 at 8.08.45 AM.png

I am so excited to take the kids here this summer!  In addition to various musical acts (check their website for info) there will be:

  • In the action sports arena, catch a rodeo, a monster-truck rally, and a demolition derby
  • Live horse racing, included with admission
  • In the carnival midway, hop aboard dozens of different rides and win prizes playing games
  • On July 4th, watch a fireworks spectacular (Tip: the best viewing spots are at the Budweiser Grandstand at the horse-racing track.)

San Mateo County Fair – Up to 46% off

Screen Shot 2017-05-01 at 8.13.33 AM.png

At San Mateo County Fair, visitors ring in the season in multiple ways. As they stroll the sprawling grounds, they can snack on various classic fair cuisines including BBQ, pizza, corn dogs, and funnel cakes. They can peruse a petting zoo, get dazzled by the Chinese Acrobats of Hebei, and witness a balloon artist twist his chosen medium into animals. Visitors can also catch concerts by renowned acts.

And don’t forget your Ebates – 6% back for Groupon purchases, and TopCashBack is 10% back for new customer purchases (5% back for existing customers).

I hope you guys all enjoy the kickoff of summer with some fun family adventures!  Remember to always look for discounts here on your favorite activities!  Let me know how you enjoyed these places!

A Whirlwind of a Week

Hey there everyone! I’m so sorry I’ve been out of pocket for a little over a week.  We had another trip back east for a wedding and to spend time with a family member who is ill.  When we returned, I learned of another ill family member and literally have JUST sat down now to write about our trip and perhaps include some fun deals for you.  And now, both kids have decided to poop.  It’s like they know.  They just know when I have a plan for something and they decide to simultaneously poop.  WHY!?

Ok so now that they have clean butts and are happily playing car-trucks, I’ll begin with your Target Deals this week.

Starting on Sunday 4/30, all kids’ C9 Champion clothing will be on Buy One Get One 50% Off!

You will also save 20% on Infantino Toys, simple and spirited, the perfect toy for any kid.

Screen Shot 2017-04-27 at 6.31.46 PM.png

Plus,  save an extra 10% on Furniture and Home Updates Thurs – Saturday with promo code MAY. And while you are stocking up on Home essentials, make sure they don’t miss their chance to Save up to 30% off Wall Décor for 48 HOURS ONLY, 4/30 – 5/1.

Screen Shot 2017-04-27 at 6.31.54 PM

Of course you always get 5% off with your Redcard. Don’t forget your TopCashBack for 2.25% on Target! Ebates customers enjoy 1%. I always suggest signing up for both since they offer different cashback for each store, sometimes doubling or even tripling!

I’ll have more deals for you as the week continues, but remember these deals begin Sunday!

Happy savings!

Yankees and Mets Fans! (And you SF Giants fans on the West coast too ;) )

Here’s a little post dedicated (mostly) to my East Coasters.  I saw this deal on Groupon today and I couldn’t let it pass by without spreading the love to all of you!

Now anyone who knows us know that we named our first born Jeter.  That’s right, Jeter.  Our second is Jackson.  So you can say we’re pretty big fans of the NYY and all things east coast.  Even though we live on the opposite side of America today, we still “bleed blue.”  I remember going to my first Yankees game with my dad (a New Yorker, through and through) and loving the experience.  Since then I’ve been to several games and hope to take my boys to a game on the East Coast sometime in the future.

As jealous as I am of you who have the opportunity to go, I have to give you guys the heads up on these great ticket prices!

Yankees fans, here you go! Dates April 13-28, tickets starting at $27.80 a pop!

Screen Shot 2017-04-11 at 2.51.49 PM

Mets more your speed? Choose a game on April 23rd or 24th with tickets starting at $14.  I won’t even bad mad at you for going to a Mets game simply because this deal is too good to pass up.  Click here to take advantage of it!

Screen Shot 2017-04-11 at 2.43.04 PM.png

Ebates offers 6% cashback plus 20% off local.

TopCashBack offers 10% cashback but only if you’re a new Groupon customer (i.e. you don’t have a Groupon account yet) or 5% cashback if you’re an existing customer.

Choose the cashback deal that’s best for you.

Ok and fine, here’s some SF Giants games that you can score a good deal on as well. Starting at $10, who could say no? Games April 11th-15th.  Hurry because these deals won’t last!

Plan and Decorate Birthdays With Ease and SAVE!

Screen Shot 2017-04-05 at 8.52.27 AM

Have you guys heard of Birthday in a Box?  Well I’m really glad I discovered this little gem so I can keep it in my back pocket for my kids’ birthday next year (they’re 1 year and 3 days apart. When I said “busy momma” I wasn’t lying).

I see all these beautiful pinterest worthy parties that my friends throw and I’m really in awe.  Everything I try to create from pinterest belongs on the pinterest fail site. There has to be a better (and less embarrassing) way, right?  I mean pretty soon my kids are going to be big enough where the sad little streamers taped to the ceiling and the dollar store table cloth with holes recycled from last year just aren’t going to cut it.

Birthday in a Box

So here you have a company that takes all the shopping, planning, creativity and decoration out of the equation.  So you can focus on more important things, like who’s going to be offended they weren’t invited, and when to schedule the parties around naptimes, school drop offs, and the one billion other kiddie birthday parties that have filled up your social calendar (when did my kids social lives become more exciting than my own?).

For all you first birthday-er’s, here’s a sampling of themes they offer.  There are several more.  All you do is click on the theme you want, and you’re taken to various different items they have to make sure your party is Mickey-licious or brimming with Bubble Guppies.   Because who doesn’t need party favors for 1 year olds… ? Screen Shot 2017-04-05 at 9.28.09 AM.png


I have little boys so here’s a sampling of the boy’s birthday supply categories (there are literally hundreds more). Screen Shot 2017-04-05 at 9.34.47 AM.png

Once you click on a category or theme you like, you’re taken to this page, which has EVERYTHING you need to complete your party (well everything minus the copious amounts of alcohol for the adults who have to sit through yet ANOTHER themed birthday party… #AmIRight?)

Screen Shot 2017-04-05 at 9.35.12 AM

Little girls have the same option. Here’s a look:

Screen Shot 2017-04-05 at 9.37.18 AM.png

Want a Moana theme? Here’s the fun little subcategories to complete your princess’s little Luau:

Screen Shot 2017-04-05 at 9.37.27 AM

And right now, you can get 20% off with code: SW20 and $40 in free personalization on orders over $100.00.

And you didn’t think I was going to close this out without getting your cashback, right? Right now Ebates is running a better cashback offering than TopCashBack.  Get your 10% off party supplies at Ebates here!

Although birthday parties are the majority of offerings here, they have a party in a box for other occassions like Halloween, baby showers, Christmas, Communions, Graduation, and pretty much any other party you can imagine.

So here’s to party season coming into full swing!

Happy savings,

Gymboree & Crazy 8 Sale

Gymboree Sale On Now!

I would be a terrible mommy blogger if I let my kid’s double case of bronchitis and a family medical issue back east stop me from letting you all know about this Gymboree sale.

EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING is marked down to $14.99 and under at Gymboree, some things starting at $2.99! That’s right, $2.99! Are you kidding?  If you know kid’s clothes, you know Gymboree is one of the premier brands, and can get kind of pricey.  This deal is JUST in time for that Easter outfit you’ve been putting off buying (or is that just me?).  They have newborn through children size 12 for your Easter matching outfits needs (again, just me?)


Click the graphic above or here to see the savings at Gymboree.

Don’t forget your Ebates (unfortunately TopCashBack doesn’t carry this site) for your 1% back. It doesn’t sound like much but trust me, if you use your cashback sites every time you shop online, you will be getting bigger and bigger checks.  My next check from Ebates will be around $150 for the past quarter.  That will be put aside for Christmas gifts for the kids and hubby this December (yes, I start planning this early).  Don’t forget to click here to sign up for Ebates.

Crazy 8 Sale On Now!
Here’s another store that I had never heard of until I moved to this part of California – Crazy 8.  It’s a sister store of Gymboree, but priced slightly lower.  Right now everything in their store is up to 75% off and free shipping on everything, no code needed (for a limited time).  50% off those Easter outfits that you haven’t bought yet (still just me?)  They’re also running a $10 pool party on selected bathing suits and $10 PJ party.  Don’t miss out on this and as always, Ebates will give you 1% cashback.

Click the graphic above or here to see the savings at Crazy 8.

ABC Mouse for Free!

Cllick here:

So we downloaded ABC Mouse for my oldest on his kindle.  We took advantage of the 30 day free trial just to see how he might like it.  We were blown away.  He loves going through different activities, learning new skills, and the songs!  They have different programs and “paths” for your child, and recommend starting around age 2!

All you mommas with #2 here or coming along, this might be a great way for your older one to learn while you focus a little more attention on your newest one.  It’s a great break from the Disney Junior app!

Oh and on top of the 30 Days Free, don’t forget to check out TopCashBack for $4.00 back (just for signing up!) or Ebates for $2.00!  And if you access  Ebates here, you will get $10.00 bonus just for signing up!
