Social Spark Member!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am slowly stepping into this blogging world one step at a time. Thanks to a friend of mine :::::hi danielle::::: she introduced me to SocialSpark. Boy, am I thankful she did! SocialSpark  compensates bloggers for giving reviews on items they have listed. I get to blog about my opinions and get compensated for my reviews! I love staying home with my children and being able to save/earn money is an added benefit. I think its awesome that we can send friend requests to other bloggers. I am able to see their blogs and interests as well.

I signed up yesterday and the process was pretty easy. I registered my blog, created my profile, and got to see what opportunities they had for me. I am really excited about this process! As a first time blogger, it is a bit overwhelming to me. With that being said, I have a great friend who is also registered at SocialSpark and LOVES it. This is going to be an incredible opportunity for me to experience blogging in a different way. Im sure you will see future reviews from me and I look forward to your comments/opinions.

Stock Pile.

Here are a few pictures of my stockpile. Now let me remind you I have family visit every other month and they leave my house with shopping BAGS. I also keep some stockpiles downstairs in our bathroom & laundry room.


We signed little eric up for t-ball and he seems pretty excited. His first practice is in a few days & I cant wait.  Sports is very important to my husband & I and we'd like to pass that along to the kids.  Im hoping he'll make new friends.  Corey wants to play but the league here he has to be 5yrs old, so maybe next year?  Well, here's to a great season lil eric!

Walgreens - 15% Military Discount

When I first started shopping Walgreens I had NO idea that they offered a military discount.  According to their Corporate Office it's up to the store.  Luckily, most Walgreens I shop at do offer the 15% military discount.  There are some stipulations including:

-Military Discount is ONLY available on TUESDAYS.
-Some stores you have to make your purchase @ the cosmetic counter.
-Only 1 store has put a time limit in place on Tuesday which is 8am-5pm.

Now this 15% can turn deals into a pretty sweet money maker.  For instance with the Dove Shampoo/Condition they had last week.
Dove $4 = $4 RR =FREE
Add in the 15% Military Discount = .60 moneymaker! 


Stride Rite Gum  99-.99ECB = FREE
Colgate  2.99 -$1 coupon- $2 ECB = FREE
Complete Eye Care  8.99 -8.99 ECB =FREE
