Posted on August 16, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide Reviews

Cave Tools has a great Grill Pan!  I made eggs and bacon on the grill, and didn’t have an issue.  The grill pan is half solid stainless steel, and half slotted stainless steel.  It’s wonderful.  My mom has always wanted grilled eggs, and now she can have them anytime.

I love how the eggs are fully fried, and the bacon is well done.  My 7 year old loves well done bacon, and now I get it well done, every time.  But you can use it for more than just breakfast.  Put your veggies on the solid side, and you won’t lose them in the grill.  No more lost food, I love it!

You can do endless things with this Grill Pan.  I can’t believe I haven’t gotten it before now.  My wife loves it too, she gets out of cooking so much, because we’ve been grilling A lot, since receiving the Grill Pan!  It’s better to keep the heat outdoors, than to have it indoors.

Acid Reflux no more with Everyday Enzymes

Posted on August 16, 2018 in Reviews women

I have been taking Everyday Enzymes for about a month, and it really is great.  I was taking an Acid Reflux medication, but now, I simply take Everyday Enzymes.  The gas, bloating, and acid reflux have deceased.  I can’t believe how well this stuff works!  And, it’s not causing any side affects with my other meds.

Dr. Liz Cruz has devoted herself to your digestive health.  Her Wellness products are miracle workers.  We, in my household, love Everyday Enzymes.

An enzyme supplement designed to assist the body in maximum digestion of nutrients, production of energy, and immune system support. Supports the digestion of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Excellent for those with a sensitive gut and experience GI discomfort.

You get 200 supplements, and the suggested dosage is 2 before each meal, but being honest, I only take one.  And, it really works, first dosage works, for me!

No heartburn, acid reflux, or bloating.  You need this, if you have any of these problems.  Everyday Enzymes is the perfect supplement!

Celebrate with Kennywood

Posted on August 1, 2018 in Amusement Park Kennywood Reviews

Kennywood is celebrating their 120th season, and I had to go check out the fun, from when I was a kid.  My 7 year old, son, had a blast.  He loved Noah’s Ark the most.  A walk through attraction, at the park.  I had forgotten how much fun Noah’s Ark was, til Jacob took our family through it.  I can’t get over how Kennywood has changed through the years.  I used to go there, when I was in High School, and now it seems different but the same, in so many ways.

Jacob also liked the bikes, in Kiddieland.  We waited a while to ride them, but he had fun.  All the rides in Kiddieland, Jacob enjoyed.

Thomas Town is the newest attraction, at Kennywood.  It was packed in that section of the park.  There’s a cute ride, for your child and you, that you can put out the fire in Thomas Town.  There’s also the train ride, and a few others.  My family really enjoyed themselves at Thomas Town, and the rest of the park.

Kennywood has always been my favorite place to go, in our area.  The roller coasters are great, and the rides for the kids are cool too.  Jacob enjoyed himself, as did my parents,  wife and myself.  It was so much fun, that we can’t wait to go back again.

Next year, the Steel Curtain will be their newest ride.  Construction has already started, and we can’t wait to ride it.

This year, it was Phantom’s Revenge, the big ride.  And, the Thunderbolt.  The Thunderbolt has always been one of my favorites.

You can even ride, or just get wet, on The Pittsburgh Plunge.  Jacob loved standing there, as the boat went down, he’d jump back, so he wouldn’t get as wet, but he still got wet.  We had so much fun, you can have that amount of fun too.  And, if you can’t walk long distances, you can rent Kenny’s Kabanas, and sit there for a little while.  Your family will know where to find you.

You can get discounted tickets through this link.  And, you will have a fun time too.

We are actually sure that we are all getting season passes for next season.  For Seniors (55+) it’s only $54.99.  That’s a great value for my parents.

Need Kennywood’s telephone number?  Well, here you go:  412-461-0500.  Located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

The Multipot by Mealthy is all I use in the Kitchen now

Posted on July 31, 2018 in 2018 Back To School Gift Guide Reviews

Mealthy has a wonderful Multipot, that you can slow cook, make rice, steam, pressure cook, etc. in.  It’s amazing.  I’ve used it every day, since I got it.  My daughter, 21 year old, Sarah, loves it too.  She made her Anniversary dinner, for her boyfriend, in the Multipot.  She said she has to get one of these Multipots.  It’s better than leading brands, in my opinion.  And, you can do everything with one appliance.

Even tried using the app, and it’s amazing!    There are even buttons for each thing you may want to do, including egg!  You even get an insert to bake a cake, and there’s a cake button for that.  My favorite button is the Yogurt Button.  Let me tell you, I eat 4 yogurts a day, and that was getting pricey at the store.  Now, I can make my own yogurt, and know what’s going into it.

You really have to check out all the buttons!  I adore this Multipot.  I knew right away that it would become one of my favorite appliances, from the get go.  However, it is my favorite appliance, to date.  My dad’s birthday was yesterday, so we made him a special cake in the Mealthy Multipot, and he loved it.

We will be doing a giveaway for a Mealthy Multipot soon.  Keep your eyes on This Frugal Family for more information, and a fun giveaway.

Dead Soxy has Dead Gorgeous No Show Socks

Posted on July 27, 2018 in 2018 Back To School Gift Guide kids Reviews women

We love Dead Soxy, in our home.  The socks are magnificent, and long lasting.  I’ve washed them at least a dozen times, and they are still form fitting.  They last and last.  I can’t get over how well they are maintained.

My 7 year old now won’t wear anything but Dead Soxy.  He loves his no shows, can’t stand socks that go up to his knees.  Good thing that Dead Soxy can handle his feet.  With school starting back up, these are the perfect socks for Gym Class, or everyday class.

My daughter is in her 3rd year of college, and she loves Dead Soxy, as well.  She just snatched my last two pairs up yesterday.  She says they are so comfortable, and wash up well.

Wanna hear something great?  If you live in the USA, you can get FREE SHIPPING on your socks.  And, the no shows are 3 for $35.  That’s an amazing price.  We buy them all the time, because even the local store doesn’t have that great of a deal.

Some Fun Facts about Dead Soxy:

They are no slip:  You will not fall when you are wearing them.

They are no Shrink:  Seriously though, they will not shrink, I can attest to that!

No Fade:  They hold their color, like I’ve never seen before.

They are Versatile:  You can wear them with any shoes.

Lastly, they are Comfortable:  If they weren’t, I wouldn’t own so many.

Bug Lab For Kids

Posted on June 27, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide kids Reviews

Bug Lab For Kids is a great collection of loads of fun activities for kids.  My son, age 7, loves this book.  He is so taken by it.  He loves to work on the labs, together.  You can collect and interact with bugs the right way, with this book.

The Bug Lab For Kids has taught the two of us so much.  From how to catch bugs, to how to pin them.  It’s a family-friendly activity book, and gives us something to do together.  He’s so into the electronics, so when I get home from work, I take him outside, and we work on catching some bugs.  He always takes the book with him.  Hopefully he will remember these activities when he gets older, so he an do them with his kids.

Prepare to cozy up with spiders, centipedes, butterflies, and bees, to name just a few! In Bug Lab for Kids, Mississippi State University associate professor, extension entomologist (bug expert), and educator John W. Guyton shares his knowledge and excitement about all things beautiful, creepy, and crawly. Every chapter is bursting with photos, illustrations, fascinating facts and fun activities–including experiments, hunt-and-catch and citizen science assignments, and arts and crafts projects–that teach kids about bugs’ physical characteristics, behavior, and how they affect agriculture, health, and water quality. Bug Lab for Kids also includes helpful sidebars that explain how to safely handle common insects, and how to easily identify bugs that shouldn’t be held, pet, or touched. Get kids excited about science and the outdoors with Bug Lab for Kids!

Get To Know 20 Crazy Bugs

Posted on June 27, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide kids Reviews

The Amazing World Bugs Book is fantastic.  My wife hates bugs, but I found it intriguing to look at with my 7 year old, son.  My son really got into it, and there’s even 13 glow in the dark bugs that came with the book.  It’s a really great book, to introduce the little ones to a whole other world out there.  My wife never goes outside, unless it’s to head straight to the car, but my son, he loves being outside with me.  So, the Amazing World Bugs is a great book for him.  He even takes it outside, and if he sees a bug from the book, will turn to that page, and go show his mother what he just saw.  In all honesty, only a couple of the bugs are found, where we are.  But, he sure makes it sound good when he runs and tells mom what he saw.

The Amazing World series transports kids to extraordinary places from the bottom of the deepest ocean to faraway galaxies. The third title in the series, Amazing World: Bugs explores the incredible world of 20 strange and magnificent insects, from shimmering glow worms and fireflies, to the extremely odd giraffe bug. Every insect profile includes up-close-and-personal, full-color photos of each amazing creature and tons of fun facts and easily digestible graphics. Kids learn about where each bug lives, what they eat, how they survive predators much, MUCH larger than they are, and so much more! The book comes with 13 reusable glow-in-the-dark plastic stickers.

At-Home Teeth Whitening: Does it Work? And, Giveaway!

Posted on June 26, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide Reviews

I’ll admit, when I first heard of Smile Brilliant, I was a skeptic.  But, then I tried it.  It works fantastic.  I’m a heavy coffee drinker, but Smile Brilliant improved my smile.  I couldn’t be happier.  There was no burning, or irritation.  I used it exactly as directed, with a few tips.  I’ve never had such a great experience.  I’m so proud of my smile now.

Smile Brilliant has two steps:

1:  Whitening

2:  Desensitizing

The Whitening part was funny.  I had those molds on my teeth, and my 7 year old said, “Daddy, what is that?”  So, as soon as I took them out, I explained.  It became a normal bedtime thing, for 2 weeks.  And, the really great thing is, you can skip a day, here or there, and your teeth stay white.

The Desensitizing part was ok.  It helped to reduce the tooth sensitivity.  It was really great.

You get three uses out of each tube.  Which makes the kit last a long time.  I still have some left, and will finish up whitening my teeth tomorrow.

The Teeth Whitening System is super easy to figure out, and they even send you an extra mold, incase you mess one up.  Which, I did.  You send the trays back, and in about 5-7 days, you have the trays back.  And, you can start whitening.  And, you can do this whenever you have 15 minutes – 2 hours.  I only left mine on for about 45 minutes, and my teeth look great.

This is one of the best products we’ve had on This Frugal Family.  It works so wonderfully, and you can see the results.

Save 20% off your kit, right now, by ordering through the above, or below, links.  Use Coupon Code:  frugalfamily20

 

Also, Enter an amazing contest, Valued at $149, right here.   It is open for 1 week (7 days) and open to USA, UK, Australia and Canadian
residents.

Need a Bag for the big trip? Look no further than Thirty-One!

Posted on June 11, 2018 in 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide kids Reviews women

I love Thirty-One.  Their bags are perfect.  We are going on an overnight stay, and the In The Clear Tote is the perfect size for mine and my spouse’s clothes.  It’s so big, and spacious.  I could probably even fit my 7 year old’s clothes in it.  There’s even a hidden pocket, in the tote, to keep my pills in.  This is great!This bag, is by far, the best bag I’ve received.  I love Thirty-One, and can’t stress that enough.  In The Clear Tote is going to be the bag of the week.  When I take it with me, to the waterpark, everyone will envy it.  I’ll love telling them where to get their bag at.

I also received The Getaway Tote.  My sister is flying to Myrtle Beach, and this is her bag, for the plane.  It’s the perfect size, to get on flight, and she will be able to put all the necessities in it.  I love this bag, as well.  However, she asked me to use it, so how could I say no?  The size is 14.75″H x 13.75″L x 6″D, which will be great to put her phone, ipad, etc. in.

I also received the Pinch Top Eyeglass Case, which will keep my sunglasses protected from getting scratched.  It even matches my In The Clear Tote.  Isn’t that sweet?  I wear big, funky glasses, and they fit in this wonderful case.  There’s even a zipper on it, to keep  your identification, credit cards, etc.  This really is the top of the line Sunglass/Eyeglass case.

The Crossbody Organizing Tote is wonderful, too.  It’s going in the backseat, with Jacob, Grandma, and myself.  That way I have snacks, drinks, and games at my fingertips.  It’s a 4 hour drive, to where we are going, so this is the perfect bag for the backseat.  Very spacious, but won’t take up much room, in the backseat.

There are different styles for these bags, but the features are all the same.  And, any of them will do for you, what they are going to do for me.  My husband calls me a bag lady.  I never turn down a great bag, and Thirty-One has never disappointed me, when it comes to a great bag.
