How do you family? Who is your family? What is a family? I think family is people who love each other, there doesn't have to be a blood relation, it doesn't have to contain a mom, a dad and 2.5 children as some would suggest. For over 60 years the well being of families has mattered to Tylenol and they have launched the #HowWeFamily program to show that family isn't about who you love, but about how you love. You can see the stories of 11 real American families here, and see how they do family. With Christmas being so close lets all continue to celebrate our families. Don't let the holiday craziness make you forget why you are doing all this. I love seeing the wonder in my kids eyes as we look at Christmas lights, or make Christmas cookies, it is truly a magical time of year. I loved watching this video from Tylenol because it gave me the warm fuzzies and caused tears to well in my eyes. It is truly an amazing compilation of family love. If you have an extra 57 seconds please watch and remember how important your family is.
Question of the Day: How do you family?

Today I thought I would focus on how I save money shopping for kids clothes. I love shopping for clothes, but I don't like full price. I actually think I have something called fullpriceitis.
the anxiety and hives that come along with buying something for full price.
I seriously cannot shop full price, it gives me anxiety because I know it will be cheaper. So here are the ways I save money on my kids clothes.
1- Use Ebates
I LOVE Ebates! Like seriously LOVE it! It is a cash back site that give you $$$ back when you shop online. You see that total?! I have earned over $250 just by doing shopping I would normally do.
How does it work? Stores like Gymboree, Target and Sears (just to name a few) pay Ebates a commission for bringing shoppers to their sites, then Ebates shares that with the shopper. So Gymboree gives Ebates 2% and they share that with you 50/50 so you would get 1% cash back! Click here to sign up for Ebates and you can get a $10 cash bonus after you make your first $25 purchase (within 90 days)!
2- Use Coupons
My love for coupons and discount is real, I love deals and saving money. Kids clothes are no exception. To get coupons sign up for emails. Some of my favorites are
Gymboree (comment with your email and I will send you a 25% off coupon that doesn't expire for 3 weeks)
Tons of these companies offer you a 20% coupon (or more) when you sign up for their email list, and then you can save it for a sale.
3- Stock Up
Right now as we are at the end of summer so all the summer clothes are at alarmingly low prices. Stock up now for next summer. You can save up to 90% at some places on summer clothes right now!
There will be a better deal,sometimes even waiting until the weekend means more deals and extra savings. Also waiting for holiday weekends to shop is an awesome idea. Stores are usually having blow-out prices around this time.
It's been awhile I know but today I thought I would share some popular past posts.
