Constantly have your cheese and bread drying out on the ends? Well, Capabunga may have just what you need. A cheese vault to protect your cheese from drying out and spoiling before you even get to eat it all?

So, when you cut the end off the bread, it will dry out and mold quicker. Use a bread cap to act as a crust and protect the bread!

How many of you try lugging 20 plastic bags full of groceries on your arms so that you don’t have to make a second trip to the car? How many of you shop at places like Aldi that don’t offer to bag? Trolley Bags are what you need in your life. Reusable bags are great but you wind up unbagging the grocery bags into the reusable bags just to carry in the house. That is really not worth the frustration. Trolley Bags are velcroed together and have bars that rest on the cart to keep them easy to put your groceries in.
All you have to do is place the Trolley bags in your cart (takes 3 seconds) and do your shopping. Unload your groceries onto the belt and ask the cashier to place them right back in your cart (aka in your bags). Push your buggy to your vehicle and pull the four bags out of the cart and put them directly into your vehicle. When you get home, carry the durable, oversized bags into the house and put your groceries away. Trolley Bags are honestly the way to go! Give them a try and you will find yourself never using plastic bags again!

Thanks to “Ask a Science Teacher”, no more, “I’m not sure honey” answers for him. He can skip asking his “not in the know” mom and go to “Ask a Science Teacher” to ring the answers.
Let’s face it. We all could use a little more self-care. Living in a society that is go, go, go all the time leaves self-care in the backseat. Make 2020 about taking care of yourself.

Now, what am I supposed to do? (Insert huge sigh and rolling eyes here.)” Nothing but peaceful rides and rainbow skies (hey – a mom can dream can’t she…?).
Are you part of the Instant Pot cult? 😉 That’s what my sister-in-law calls it. I have found that once you start using the Instant Pot, there’s no turning back. So what could be better than an Instant Pot Cookbook? Well, a KETO Instant Pot Cookbook, of course! The Salted Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake may or may not be the first recipe that I try out of this book. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Keto doesn’t have to be hard and the Instant Pot just made it so much easier!

Exploring a big city can be a thrilling adventure. Between beautiful structures, history to learn, and stunning views (especially at night), my “to-do list” when visiting has always been bigger than my bank account. I have used CityPASS in Chicago before which allows visits to some of the best attractions in The Windy City. My husband and I took a quick trip to New York City earlier this year and have plans to return. We didn’t have time to enjoy the city as much as we would like. I already have our tickets for all the places we are dying to visit together! Great thing is, with CityPASS, the tickets are 44% less than if you bought them straight up. Now, THAT is more in line with my bank account! We love using CityPASS!!
The Empire State Building has been on my bucket list for years now. My husband, he has been anxious to go to the 9/11 Memorial & Museum. We had plans to go while we were there in February but had a family emergency that cut our trip short (the day we were to go to the 9/11 Memorial & Museum)! Among the other places, we will be visiting with city pass include the American Museum of Natural History (for my history-buff of a husband), The Metropolitan Museum of Art (which will be more up my alley), and then we both are stoked about the Top of the Rock Observation Deck. We went to eat in the Rockefeller Center in February. I can only imagine the view from the observation deck! Seeing the Statue of Liberty from the boat will be much different than getting to experience walking right next to it! Thank you, CityPASS for making traveling easier and more affordable!
Life can get pretty crazy with rushing from one place to the next, making sure children are fed and bathed, and being involved in as many activities as you can be for your children. At that time, often, people miss out on prayer time and devotions. Despite your desire, sometimes it just gets pushed to the back burner when life’s pressing moments are right in your face. The Hope Planner, a Christian woman’s planner, (which men can use, too) helps you get your life organized so that you DO have time for your devotions and prayer time. It is all worked into the planner with a place for devotions, prayer requests, and even a place for church notes! Get grounded in your faith all while keeping life more organized with the Hope Planner by Hope Fuel!

If you have a budding physicist on your Christmas list, here is a book that is a must-have under your tree. My eldest man child has his sights set on being an Astrophysicist and is constantly reading any and all books that help his understanding of how the world of atoms work together, this is the book that will still be given long after Christmas Day! Hours of fun in one little package.
Stuff, Stuff everywhere is how I have felt lately. Fostering a newborn and having a daughter in 1st grade, a son in 7th, and another son as a junior in high school, makes our life have a lot of “stuff”. Our kids are all at different phases in life which requires a lot of organization. ZizzyBee Bags helps us eliminate some of the chaos in life! Baby’s must-have items like his nail clippers, nasal aspirator, an extra pacifier (why do they always disappear?), and a small bottle of lotion all get thrown in one ZizzyBee Bag and then into the diaper bag. We know exactly where it is at all times. The bags are washable which makes them really convenient to use when my boys use them to haul their pens and pencils for school.
Often, I see people in Walmart buying multiple cases of water all at one time. They load it in their cart, unload it at the register, reload it in their cart, all to unload into their vehicle and then into their home. It can get expensive to drink clean water but also a nuisance. Then, after all that work, you still manage to walk out of the house grabbing only one bottle and having to stop to buy a bottle of water at the gas station. Now, you can buy the Epic Nalgene OG Bottle and have clean, purified water at any time regardless of where you go (as long as you have some form of water source). Epic Water Filters offers a variety of filtration systems. My favorite has to be the Epic Nalgene OG for our busy lifestyles. I get clean, great-tasting water anywhere I go!
Every fisherman has probably spent some time at some point watching the pros online or tv. One of the things I love about those shows is getting to see what happens under the water during the battle between fish and anglers! I have often thought when bass fishing how cool it would be to be able to see that same kind of action with the fish I am catching. Using the GoFish Camera that dream is now a reality!
The GoFish Camera attaches easily to your line regardless of what type of rig or fishing you are doing. It can be used in either fresh or saltwater and can be used at a depth of up to 500 feet! It features built-in WiFi to easily connect to your phone so that you can enjoy and share the HD video of your underwater battles with all of your fishing buddies! By using this camera it allows you to see what fish are in the area and even identify things such as where the fish beds are too! The included float accessory turns the camera into a bobber and with it above water, live stream your fishing action! Made with a rugged military exterior, this Camera is a welcomed addition to any anglers tackle box! The more you see the more you catch and the GoFish Camera is the perfect way to find that trophy fish!

Block Island Natural Sunscreen & Revitalizing Night Cream
I’m getting to the age that my skin isn’t looking quite as youthful as it once did. I’m not complaining, these wrinkles and stretch marks help tell my story.

Intentional. It’s a word that I’ve been mulling over for weeks now. Intentional living allows me to “trim the fat” out of my life. Make room in my life for what is really important. Life is too short to live it floundering. It’s not a dress rehearsal. We get one shot at living and I want to make every single moment I have count. Seeking Slow is helping me prioritize what is important and weed out the rest. Intentional living is the best life.
The more clutter I have around me, the more clutter I have in my mind. I can still hear my mom saying it. “A place for everything and everything in its place!” I didn’t get it then, but now I get it! The issue many of us have is we have too much stuff to have a place for everything! Clearing the clutter out of our physical space is going to automatically clear our minds as well. Simply Spaced will be a great addition to any family Christmas tree! Learn to live simply together!

Let’s face it, with the ease of taking photos on our phones, we have more photos and videos than we ever have before. Yet because we do it digitally and never print them out they are more at risk than ever of being lost forever. I mean who doesn’t know someone who is a quick moment had a phone destroyed along with all the data on it as well!

I love grilling out! The smell of a nice marinated steak rolling off the grill is just one of life’s simple pleasures. The part I don’t like is cleaning the grill afterward.
