McAlister's Deli: How We Spent $5 Instead of $20+



Does your family have an "eating out" budget?  It's so much cheaper to eat at home, but sometimes the last thing in the world I want to think about is cooking dinner.  It's stories like this one that make me happy I am a couponing girl!

When hubby and I visit McAlister's Deli, we can spend over $20 just getting an entree and a glass of sweet tea each (have you had their sweet tea?  A-ma-zing).  Here's how we saved this week!

McAlister's offers a couple of punch cards: the Who's Your Deli? Reward Card and the Tea Club Card. 
Make sure you have these!  We ordered our normal meal - one entree and one glass of tea each.  We had a free entree from the Who's Your Deli? card.  I also had received an email from the McAlister's Deligrams Club with a printable coupon for $5 off (happy birthday!).  This brought our cost down to just $5.64 for two entrees and two drinks.

PLUS we filled up our Tea Club Card on this visit - meaning next time, we get a free glass of tea too!  Yay!

Have Peace of Mind with Coolibar: Sun-Protective Gear and Apparel



Happy First Day of Fall!  I think it's safe to say that summer may be behind us (finally).  Since it's cooler outside, I have to remind myself that the sun can still be harmful.  Thankfully I have a great solution - my Coolibar Sun Blanket.  Coolibar offers great apparel and accessories that protect from the sun's rays.  The Sun Blanket is rated UPF 50+ so I take it with me everywhere in case we get trapped in a sunny situation!

This great little blanket is very light-weight and made of ZnO SUNTECT® cotton/bamboo/spandex.  It is stretchy and soft and L loves it.  It measures 40"x30", which is a great size for draping over the stroller or the infant car seat to block the sun. 

This has been a great addition to our collection of baby gear.  The Coolibar Sun Blanket is available in several colors and will give you peace of mind as you are out and about with your little one!  Right now shipping is free on orders of $75 or more.

Thanks to Coolibar for my sample used for this review.  I received no other compensation and all views expressed are my own.

Children's Book Review: Really Woolly Little Book of Bible Verses

The Really Woolly Little Book of Bible Verses is a great little book. Each page has a poem, a Bible verse (International Children's Version), and a couple questions for your child. For example, one page has a poem called "Forgive Each Other" with the verse Ephesians 4:32, and then two questions: "When someone says, 'I'm sorry,' do you say, 'I forgive you'?" and "Do you know why that's the best thing to do?" These simple questions will help your child (and even you) consider the meaning behind the verses.

The illustrations are adorable also. There are three characters on each page in some sort of situation that relates to the poem, verse, and questions. On the first page, the verse is Psalm 119:105 "Your word is like a lamp for my feet and a light for my way." The sheep, rabbit and duckling are holding hands and the sheep is leading with a flashlight. On the page described above about forgiveness, the sheep and rabbit are playing baseball, and it appears that sheep got hit in the head with the baseball. Overall, these images are cute, and the poems and verses are applicable. 

I love the board book format - L is chewing on everything right now, but he hasn't been able to damage this book!  Bedtime is kind of dramatic these days due to teething, but we love reading him stories before bed and this is one of the books stashed in his room in case his mood is good at night.  :)

Right now you can purchase the Really Woolly Little Book of Bible Verses for $9.99 on Amazon - it would make a great stocking stuffer for the little ones in your family!

Thanks to Thomas Nelson Publishing for my review sample!  I received no other compensation and all views expressed are my own!
