My Lifestyle Favorites For Spring 2017 (Part 1)

Is it just me or has 2017 gone by in a flash?


You probably feel it’s gone in a flash, too.


So, before any more time slips out of our hands, let me share some of my Spring 2017 Lifestyle Favorites that you can enjoy this Spring and beyond.


Some of these links are affiliate links. All opinions are my own, and I share these products with you because I think you’ll REALLY love them.


Do You Feel Guilty Just Thinking About Shopping?

Hey, I get it.


When you have little ones, what you want to do is buy things for them. Buy what they need, not necessarily what you want.


But, let me share a favorite plugin, that will make you feel a little bit better about buying online.




It’s called Ebates.


If you haven’t tried Ebates, you’re in for a very special treat. Can I be super honest with you? I had heard several people raving about

Can I be super honest with you? Several years ago, I had heard several people raving about Ebates , but I didn’t sign up. It kept on pushing this task off, thinking that this wasn’t as cool of a plugin as people said it was.


But boy, was I wrong! And it potentially cost me hundreds of dollars as a result of not having signed up earlier.


Why do I say this?


Because within days of signing up, I had earned about $25.56 dollars cash back, given that I had made a few more purchases than usual (you’ll see some of these purchases below).


If you sign up for Ebates through this link, you’ll get $10.00 in bonus cash back right away. Pretty sweet, right?


My Method For Getting To Know More Cool Products


As much as I like shopping, I try to save whenever I can.


However, if you follow me on social media, you may have seen that I have been sharing with you what are known as Ultimate Bundles.


What are Ultimate Bundles?

They are groups of digital and physical products that you can get at an UNBELIEVABLY low price for a very limited amount of time.

Family Products



Reading has always been an important way that my family bonds. So, when I was able to get a free Bookroo gift box thanks to the bonuses that Ultimate Bundles was offering, I was thrilled!

It was so neat to see my oldest unwrap the books that come wrapped in beautiful, sturdy gift wrap paper and enjoy them. We are awaiting our 2nd box.

When you order a Bookroo book subscription box, you can either get a:

  • Picture Book Box that contains 2 story books for older kids, ages 2-6 OR a
  • Board Book Box that contains 3 board books that are ideal for kids 0-2.

Either, way, the stories are cute, and you and the kids will enjoy them.


You can get 15% off your box when you sign up through this link.



Mother Goose Time Curriculum

As you may have seen, I have been sharing what I think about this curriculum here on the blog. Feel free to search for those blogs.

Here’s one example: What Makes The Mother Goose Time Curriculum Special.



Office Products

Cultivate What Matters Sticker Book

I came across this sticker book, through one of the recent Ultimate Bundles. I love stickers. And I thought the stickers would be “okay” but they far exceeded my expectations!


The only downfall is that I loved the cute, colorful, gold-foiled stickers so much that I just wish it had more of the same to last me the whole year.

I already bought a 2nd book. So be warned, you’ll fall in love with them. 🙂



Fashion Products

I’m not a super trendy kind of girl. I like classic fashion. BUT, I have to say that the off-the-shoulder shirts and dresses that are in style right now are just SOOO cute.


I’ve always loved this style of blouses, and I have several blouses and shirts of these type. Now, though, there are more styles and even off-the-shoulder bathing suits. Oooh-la-la!


It really doesn’t matter where you get them from… here are some styles you may like from Amazon. Remember to use your Ebates plugin!




El Mexicano Nacho Cheese

When I eat nachos, which isn’t often, I like to eat them with jalapeños. But I have ultimately decided on a cheese product that is so good, that you will not need to add jalapeños because they’re already in the product.


You can get two sizes, the 15 oz. cans or the 6 lbs. can of  El Mexicano Nacho Cheese.


You’ll find the best prices at Walmart. But as of writing this post, only the 15 ounce can was eligible to be delivered to you. So if you wanted the larger 6 lb. can, you would have to go to the store to purchase it. By the way, did you know that Walmart now offers 2-day shipping on orders of $35.00 or more (for many products)?


If you buy the cheese from Walmart, be sure to use Ebates to earn cash back.


You could order the 15 oz. can of cheese from Amazon, but you would be paying a premium.




The Melissa and Doug Scissor Skills Activity Book with a Pair of Child-Safe Scissors

If you have a preschooler in your life, this cutting practice book is great.


It’s fun for your child to cut the shapes, but even more fun for them to use them afterward to make pizza, cake, make a fish puzzle, slice up a watermelon, among other things.


Don’t worry if at first, they struggle, if you tuck the book away for a little while and then pull it out, you’ll see that there will be a point in which they whiz through the book and cut everything up.




One of my absolute baby products by FAR is are the All-In-One Fuzzibunz cloth diapers. They are also known as the AIO Fuzzibunz, that grow with your child. I cannot say enough great things about them. And I won’t try to in this post since I’ll be dedicating a special blog post to them in the future.


All I can say is that after more than 4 years, they’ve held up super well.


They saved me thousands of dollars. Not many products can live up to that.
