Luvs Diaper Coupons for Your Stockpile

This review was made possible by iConnect and Luvs.  I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.

Luvs Nightlock

I remember the diaper stage like it was yesterday but in fact it was years ago. My son will be 9 next month and time goes by so fast! So to all of the parents with diaper pails that need emptying, restocking a diaper bag and searching sales for the diaper brands that work for you, take it all in because it goes away fast.

I may not have a child in diapers anymore but I still love to share Luvs because it was my go-to brand those many years back. My son did not have leaks and the price was right for me. I loved the value of Luvs diapers.

Luvs Diaper Coupons for Your Stockpile

On top of the value in the diaper Luvs provides you can save even more. Beginning this Sunday (April 30) within the coupon inserts look for your $2 off Luvs coupon PLUS on you can print a $1 off coupon. That’s 2 different ways to save.

Expiration dates are 5/13/2017 on the $2 ad coupon and 30 days from print on the $1 coupon.

New and Improved Luvs diapers now have the Luvs Ultra Leakguard Diapers with NightLock Plus™. These diapers are more soft and absorbent than ever before, with large stretch tabs for easy fastening, ultra-leakage protection. This includes a money-back guarantee.  Like I found years ago, Luvs still provides features babies and parents need for less cost than premium brands.

Upromise helps you Ace your Savings by Keeping an Emergency Fund

Sponsored post for Upromise

In a few weeks we are driving our middle son to University. He is a first year student and we are first time college parents. We have learned so much from savings to outfitting small dorm room spaces for him. There is so much I have learned this past year that I wish I knew before. Saving for college is one lesson I realized I should have learned years ago. I now know a bit more on how to start a college fund and save the right way for his younger brother. Upromise by SallieMae is loaded with tips, savings and even ways to start building a fund for your child’s future.


When T started his very first job at 15, he was already talking college but we knew little about the process. At the early High School years we were focused on grades, class choices and SAT prep. Tuition seemed far away. Now that it is here and I just got the email for our out-of-pocket costs last week I am glad I at least did a few things to prepare, although there was so much more I could have done. Beginning with that first job, I opened him a checking and savings account and would make him move 5% of his paychecks to that savings. He has enough in there today, even after having to buy a new tire for his car when it went bad, to buy his portion of books for school. It was an emergency fund and if your child does not have one yet-start today!


Here is what linking your current credit/debit cards to the secure Sallie Mae Upromise account and/or signing up for the money-earning Upromise Mastercard can do for you. I linked my 2 commonly used cards in my account and now when I shop through the Upromise route or eat at certain restaurants and travel, I earn cash back using my own bank cards. It is a no-brainer because once you link, just continue doing the things you do with your personal and even store cards. I entered my zip code in restaurants and noted all the choices that will give me cash back. Now I will just be partial to eating at those establishments as they help our Upromise fund.

The Upromise by SallieMae Goal Settings Tips can prepare yourself and your child for the college years. After this experience sending our older son off to college, I have already seen the importance of starting early. As a result, the younger boy is 8 and this Upromise account I just set up will help. I have an open account for him but he does not work so a percentage of my pay will go into his emergency fund from now on. I will shop and spend smart as in ways I can get cash back. Upromise is a blessing because of the tips and savings you can get through the college process. Starting that emergency fund early is just one easy way to be prepared. We already know they are Super Stars at this young age, being a super star will get expensive down the road.

My sis and Theo
September is Happy Healthy Cat Month
Recently, the cat lovers at Meow Mix ran the Purrfect Together Survey, which asked cat parents around the country about their special bond with their kitty. Here are some of the meow-nificent results:
83% of cats take naps with their humans
This is surprising—and not because 83% of people love napping with their fur friend. The bigger question is: Who are the 17% of deprived humans who don’t get to experience the joy of napping with their cats?

80% of cat parents believe they can interpret their kitty’s meows
While humans and cats may purr in different languages, that doesn’t stop most kitty mommies and daddies from understanding what their kitty wants—whether it be some treats, cat nip, or just a snuggle partner.
72% of cat parents love to surprise their kitties with treats
Speaking of treats, nothing makes a cat happier than some spontaneous, unexpected goodies from the person who cares for them the most.
55% of cats love chicken-flavored nibbles

Groupon Coupon Savings and Local Deals

This is a sponsored post 

Who would turn their nose up on extra money? I don’t which is why I get so excited at a good savings when I find them. I have increased my online shopping within the past few years and although it took me a while to conform to shopping at home, I quickly realized how much easier it is to control what you spend. Before checking out I search for coupon codes and for the stores that offer free shipping for what I want. I can even find savings on restaurants and local events when I search the deals in sites like Groupon. I recently paid $5 for a $10 Starbucks gift card using Groupon and even bought our oldest son 2 all day passes to GameWorks for only $20 using a Groupon coupons deal for his birthday. He plans to use them to take his girlfriend to Seattle for the day and have a blast gaming. I frequently use Groupon to buy gifts of adventures and getaways for family.
Groupon really has no limits on the types of savings you can find! Some categories in which you will save on Groupon are
  • Entertainment venues

  • Restaurants

  • Services like home and auto repair
  • Electronics
  • Travel
  • Retail savings at stores like Macys and Kohls
It is so easy to navigate and find savings. I tend to visit Groupon when I have to get gifts for others because I can look for services to gift them by their zip code or even find unique and fun gifts and product to buy and have shipped quickly. Groupon notifies my when items ship and I know exactly when to expect them. If using a service or entertainment deal you’ll simply print the voucher after you purchase it. The vouchers are available immediately after you purchase and are ready for use!
Don’t forget to follow Groupon on Facebook and/or Twitter so that you can stay updated and see the notifications of new and hot deals!
