Go Organically for After School Activity Snacks

Posted on October 28, 2018 in 2018 Back To School Gift Guide

We love Go Organically, in our home.  Whether it be for a snack, or an After School Activity Snack, it is just as delicious.  My 7 year old will eat them, like they are going out of style.  My 21 year old loves them too.  With Go Organically, you can’t go wrong.  And, they are a healthy snack as well.

Go Organically has some great tips for you, for the school season, just keep reading below:

School’s back in session—and so are after-school activities! From soccer to singing to scouting, there’s certainly no shortage of kid-centric extracurricular programs where you can spend your time and hard-earned cash. But how do you know which ones are right for your kid? We’re here to help you find out!

Gauge Their Interests

The best activity for your kid is the one they’re interested in. Older kids are likely to be drawn to what their friends are trying. Toddlers and younger kids may have trouble articulating what they want to try, but there are sure to be clues to look out for. Are they constantly running around? Maybe soccer would be a good fit. Do they like to bop along to the radio in the car? Perhaps they’d appreciate a music class.

Consider Their Personality

Have a shy kid who hides behind mama when meeting new people? An acting class probably isn’t the best idea. As tempting as it can be to use activities to help break kids out of their shell, it’s best to stick with classes that align with a kid’s authentic spirit. The more comfortable they are, the more confident they’ll be—which will hopefully lead to a willingness to try new things later on.

  • Individual Activities

Independent-minded kids tend to enjoy individual sports, such as gymnastics, tennis, dance or martial arts. Non-sport options could include private lessons in music or art. Benefits of these types of activities include building self-esteem, motor skills and attention/focus.

  • Group Activities

Socially-minded kids often prefer the camaraderie of team sports, such as soccer, basketball or hockey. Non-sport options could include scouting troops or theater arts. These types of activities emphasize teamwork, communication and discipline.

Take Advantage of Free Trial Classes

Once you’ve narrowed down your options, see if you can “try before you buy” with a free trial class. Many program facilitators understand that kids can be finicky creatures, with a passion for tap one day and taekwondo the next. And it’s a good idea to decide as a family before the program starts whether you’ll let your kiddo quit before the session is over if they don’t enjoy it or ask them to stick it out to the end to honor their commitment.

Think About Your Schedule

How many activities are too many? Well, that depends on the family and the child. Some kids have the interest and energy to take a bunch of different classes while others may feel overscheduled and stressed. Budget and work timetables can also be a factor. Only you can know what’s right for your family, so trust your gut and enjoy the ride!

When shuttling kids around to activities, be sure to take along Go Organically Organic Fruit Snacks. Made with real fruit and no artificial colors, our gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free kids snacks are individually packaged for on-the-go convenience. Be sure to follow us on Facebook for kid-friendly ideas and inspiration!

Dryel On-The-Go Stain Remover Really Works

Posted on August 16, 2018 in 2018 Back To School Gift Guide

I love the new Dryel On-The-Go Stain Remover.  My spouse is a welder, and well, he gets some pretty tough stains.  But, with this new Dryel product, his stains are easily removed, while he’s at work.  Whether it’s his lunch, or something else, he now has this wonderful product to help clean up any stains.

Dryel is safe for delicates, and Dry clean only products, as well.  It’s gentle, and effective.  And, it’s 20ml, instead of 10ml, like leading brands.

I also have one of these Dryel Stain Removers in my purse.  That way, if we are out somewhere, and my 7 year old gets a stain, or even myself, I can get the stain removed before it sets in.  You know how hard set in stains are to get out.  And, now with Dryel, I never have to worry about that again!

Features of Dryel Stain Remover, include:

  • Safely removes stains on dry clean only clothes, delicates and hand-washables
  • Tests prove it out cleans other stain pens on tough stains
  • Unique soft touch tip helps lift stains
  • Peroxide-free formula: safe for dry clean only clothes
  • Great value! double the size of the leading pen

I’ll even be putting one of the On-The-Go Stain Removers, by Dryel, in my kids’ bookbags.  Sarah is in her 3rd year of college, so I know she will need one, and Jacob, going to 2nd Grade can use one too.  Lunch time, is always a rough time, for my children.  With Dryel, life is easy.

My mom and I love the Pistachio Chewy Bites.  I put mine in the fridge, and they have a great taste, even cold.  You don’t have to put them in the fridge, but I take them in my lunch, so they aren’t real cold by the time I get to them.  The Pistachio Chewy Bites, or as I call them, “Pistachio delights”, are so chewy.  The cranberry isn’t a strong taste, and the pistachios and chocolate are there.  I love Pistachios, so of course, I’m going to love the Pistachio Chewy Bitess.  If you have a love for nuts, you will love these too.

Setton Pistachio of Terra Bella, Inc.- the nation’s second largest pistachio grower, processor, and maker of Setton Farms Pistachio Chewy Bites based in California’s Central Valley- is excited to announce the launch of its new packaging for their iconic Pistachio + Cranberry Chewy Bites.

Their story, is as follows:

Quality Glasses at Readers.com

Posted on August 9, 2018 in 2018 Back To School Gift Guide

This Back To School Season, get your glasses at Readers.com.  We love to shop with Readers.  The glasses are high quality, but low prices.  My daughter loves Readers.com.  She’s in her 3rd year of college, and can’t live without them, because they fit in her budget.  I love them too.  I went to the Eye Doctor, found out what strength I need, then ordered from Readers.com.  Their prices are so perfect.  And, the Quality is amazing.

The Cinder Sun Reader are perfect for driving.  You can see the road signs, from further away, then right next to the sign.  I have great eye sight with these glasses on.  The sunglasses keep the sun out of your eyes, while the strength you need, helps you see.  These are perfect for anyone who has to commute on those sunny days.

The Fuller Sun Reader is another great sun glass.  They are so cool looking, and again, you can use them on those sunny days, to see the road, etc.  I love these sun glasses.

The Coffee is a very cool, sleek looking pair of glasses.  I love these, and wear them every day at work, to do paperwork.  They are my favorite pair of glasses, that I have ever come across.  I love the metal front.  And, I protect these glasses..never leave them sit on my desk, always have them on, or in my pocket.

The Scotch is my second favorite pair of glasses.  These are metal, all around.  They are so attractive looking, and, I use these at home, to do bills.  Again, a great pair of glasses, for a cheap price.

Lastly, I received the Bifocal EVA Safety Goggles.  I love these.  I’m a welder/supervisor.  I use these when needing to get a job done.  I can see my seam so clearly with these safety goggles on.  They are also comfortable, and just perfect for doing the job I need to do.

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.

Chocodates Are Loved By Our Family

Posted on July 20, 2018 in 2018 Back To School Gift Guide 2018 Summer Fun Gift Guide

My mom is a date freak, so when I offered her a bag of Chocodates, she jumped.  She says the flavors are all delicious.  Not too rich tasting, but just pure heaven.  She likes the Milk Chocolate the best, but she said the White Chocolate, and Dark Chocolate are tied for second place.  She said she could sit down and eat the entire bag.  When I asked for one, she looked at me as if to say, “Go get your own bag!”  I just laughed.  That’s fine, she is my mother, and doesn’t have to share!

So, I tried the bag of Dark Chocolate, and she’s right, “Fantastic!”  I was never much into dates, but these are absolutely, without a doubt, out of this world.  If you are a date person, you have to try these, even if you aren’t, you should still try them.  I am not, and thought that they were delish!  Even my 21 year old, daughter, tried them.  We didn’t tell her what it was, and she thought it was great, and asked for more.

For some people, there’s nothing quite like the original. Made up of a perfect marriage of premium Arabian dates enrobed in silky smooth cacao rich milk chocolate and pitted with a crunchy and flavour packed almond, this is the Chocodate that started it all.

For those who love chocolate in all flavours and colours, we have a special assorted range for your enjoyment! Savour the complexity of the dark Chocodate, indulge in the light playfulness of the white Chocodate and relish the taste of the silky smooth milk chocolate Chocodate.

Lugz, The Best Shoes Around

Posted on July 20, 2018 in 2018 Back To School Gift Guide

I recently received a pair of Lugz, and I have to tell you that these tennis shoes are the best!  I didn’t even have to put insoles in them, like I do almost every pair I get.  I love them, and I think you should try them out, too.  My 21 year old, daughter, is jealous, and asked me when she’s getting her pair.

I love the color, and the feel of this shoe, called the Changeover II.  They are super comfy, and are long lasting.  I had a pair of Lugz, once before, and they lasted 3 years.  I loved them, and had to get me another pair.

These sneakers are perfect for everyday wear, or just occasional wear.  You will love them, just as much as I do.  The insole is cushioned, to give you some relaxed feel, and the tongue and collar are padded, so you don’t even feel the laces on the shoes.

I wore this pair, of sneakers, to my cousin’s wedding.  They didn’t even know they were sneakers.  The color of them helped, and the style is out of this world.  Yes, I keep them clean, I don’t want them getting the slightest bit dirty.  I wash them, every time I bring them in, and take them off.

These Lugz are the perfect Back To School Sneaker.  Your child will be able to have Gym Class in style, and comfort.

Through July 23, they are Buy One Get One Half Off.  That’s one heck of a deal, oh and did I mention FREE SHIPPING?  Just enter code:  BOGO4JULY at checkout

The Men’s Changeover II is a classic sneaker that provides a stylish athletic look perfect for everyday wear. This sneaker features folded edge upper construction, a padded tongue and collar and a cushioned insole for added support and comfort.
