61ePi6t9oFL._SL1000_Britax 2014 B-Agile and B-Safe Travel System 

If you are a family that travels often, you may want to opt for a travel system over just a car seat.

This purchase gives you an infant car seat and stroller that work together to transport your baby safely from Point A to Point B.

The Britax 2014 B-Agile and B-Safe Travel System is among the top travel systems for several reasons.

71tFd+LjpbL._SL1110_First off, you should know the B-Safe infant seat offers a weight capacity of 30 pounds. This should get your little one through most of their first year.

The B-Agile stroller works for children up to 55 pounds, so it will likely not need replacing before your child outgrows needing to use it.

Safety is a huge concern when it comes to buying infant car seats, and the Britax 2014 B-Agile and B-Safe Travel System features a seat with front, side, and rear impact protection, should you find yourself in a car accident.

Push button LATCH lets you install the car seat correctly in your vehicle so there’s no worry if your baby is protected while on the road. The B-Safe car seat also features an easy-to-use 5-point harness and infant padding for comfort and ample support. Both can quickly be adjusted without rethreading or unhooking to keep your baby comfortable and you from pulling your hair out when on the go.

When the stroller is needed, its quick-fold design is easy to operate with one hand, so you can keep your baby on your hip as you maneuver the gear. Weighing only 16.5 pounds, the stroller is easy to place in your trunk until needed for a shopping trip. Keeping your baby safe while you stroll through the park or neighborhood is a breeze with the Britax 2014 B-Agile and B-Safe Travel System.

The B-Safe seat clicks into the B-Agile stroller, locking it in place as your push your little one.

For older babies, the stroller features an adjustable 5-point harness that you do not need to rethread in order for it to properly fit your child. While your baby snoozes on your journey, the B-Agile stroller’s large canopy conceals his face and protects him from the sun. When used with the B-Safe car seat, both canopies offer complete protection. A mesh insert allows you to see him as you push. The infinite recline makes it easy to lay your baby back so they can sleep comfortably anytime of the day.

Boba 4G Carrier Review

Boba 4G Carrier Review

Saving Dollarsand Sense

bobaFor those of you who might have missed the news, our first grandson Liam James was born a couple days ago!!

In honor of our growing family, I want to spend the next couple weeks highlighting some of the very best baby products available.

First up is the Boba 4G Carrier Review.

Babywearing has become quite popular these days.

Moms like to keep their little ones close, and it frees their hands to do household chores, cook or shop. It is important to have a carrier that is safe and comfortable for your baby.

The Boba 4G Carrier is one baby carrier that will ensure both of those.

The Boba 4G Carrier is perfect for infants as little as 7 pounds and will work for toddlers up to 45 pounds. The large weight range makes it the only baby carrier you will need to buy to keep your baby close.

Made with 100% cotton that is free from any harmful dyes or fabrics, this carrier shouldn’t irritate your baby’s sensitive skin.

You have carrying options with the Boba 4G Carrier.

For smaller babies up to 25 pounds, you can front carry them against your chest to keep them close and console them. As they get older, you can switch to a back carry to better distribute their weight on your body and let them see more of the world.

The integrated infant insert for the Boba 4G Carrier can be placed in two positions depending on your baby’s size. This ensures they are sitting comfortably and not in a way that could be damaging to their hips and legs.

A removable sleeping hood provides your baby with a dark, quiet place to snooze, which she will be doing a lot of when first born. Foot straps are also included to let your little one rest their legs and feet with ease. Side straps can quickly pull your baby closer for breastfeeding or to simply create a more snug, protected wear.

For the adult, the Boba 4G Carrier comes with a number of customizations for comfortable fit. Adjustable shoulder and waist straps fit a number of body sizes. The shoulder straps can go from 20-40 inches, while the waist belt fits 25-58 inches.

Mothers and fathers can both wear their baby comfortably!

Along with a variety of adjustments available, the Boba 4G Carrier comes in a number of fun as well as neutral styles including Dusk, Kangaroo, Moab, Peak, Slate, Soho, Tweet, and Wildflower.

Additional features make the Boba 4G Carrier the most convenient baby carrier. Purse straps are integrated into the shoulder straps so you aren’t constantly dropping your bag. The carrier features well-positioned pockets for money or keys needed for a quick walk or trip to the store.

Fresh Step Target Cartwheel and Gift Card Offer

Saving Dollarsand Sense

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Fresh Step at Target for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

I was shopping at Target the other day when I remembered that I needed to clean out our litter boxes for Luna. I always get the same brand because it is just what I do, plus it’s always a good price and helps keep the house smelling fresh.

This time I decided to try a new brand because they were on sale and I earned a $5 Target Gift Card back when I purchased two.  Since that is exactly what I needed and I am always looking for the best deal I figured it couldn’t hurt to try something new, right?!!

I have to say that the most important thing to me when choosing a litter for my cats is that it does a great job of hiding the smells that come whenever Luna does her job, if

This time I decided to try a new brand because they were on sale and I earned a $5 Target Gift Card back when I purchased two.  Since that is exactly what I needed and I am always looking for the best deal I figured it couldn’t hurt to try something new, right?!!

When I checked my Cartwheel App and I saw that I could also Save 15% with Cartwheel I knew I had struck the litter jackpot! Well I knew I was getting the very best deal, I just hoped it would be the very best choice as well.

I have to say that the most important thing to me when choosing a litter for my cats is that it does a great job of hiding the smells that come whenever Luna does her job, if you know what I mean.

I went with NEW Fresh Step® with the Power of Febreze™ and headed home to see how well it would work. Thankfully Luna didn’t seem to mind the new litter and got familiar with it right away.

I was happy to learn about the 10-Day Stink Free Guarantee that states that your Fresh Step® clumping litters feature 10-day odor elimination with activated carbon and bacterial odor inhibition for extreme litter control. If you find things are getting stinky before 10 days, just download the form below and send it in for a full refund which you can find here

Now that we have tried this new Fresh Step® with the Power of Febreze™ I can honestly say that I think we have found a new litter. Luna seems very happy with the new litter and I am in love with the ClumpLock™ Odor Technology that traps all of the odors for 10 days, guaranteed!

I also noticed that there is a lot less dust that fills the air whenever I am refilling the litter or whenever Luna is scratching the litter around.  I like that it leaves less of a dusty film on the surrounding area.

If you are looking for a good litter that does a great job, leaves less mess and comes with a 10-Day Stink Free Guarantee then I highly recommend the new Fresh Step® with the Power of Febreze™ especially now while you can get such an awesome deal on it at Target.

AromaSoft Diffuser Spring Essential Oil Recipe

Saving Dollarsand Sense


Spring is one of my favorite times of the year!

There is something so nourishing to the soul about watching everything that once appeared dead, come back to life once again.

Spring is such a refreshing time of year and I have several diffuser Recipes that I love to diffuse during this time of year.

I recently was given the opportunity to try out a new AromaSoft Ultrasonic diffuser and I could not wait to tell you all about it because it has quickly become one of my faves!

But first I wanted to share one of my all time favorite springtime essential oil recipes with you :)


image-369 (1)


Okay now let me tell you why I really LOVE my new diffuser!

When I opened the box I saw that inside was an offer for a FREE Bonus Diffuser Recipes Book!!

The perfect size! It is just big enough to hold enough water to run several hours pushing out a generous amount of mist continuously. Plus it is still compact enough to fit just about anywhere without taking up too much valuable space.

I have found that most smaller diffusers work best in smaller spaces. They usually don’t push out very much mist at all. Did I mention how much mist the AromaSoft pushes out? I mean it is quite impressive for the size, proving that bigger is not always better.

It has some really neat lighting features including constantly changing colors. I love it but I am SO happy to know that that is also a feature that I can turn off while I am working so it won’t distract me.

It is SO EASY to use!

Step 1 Lift off the top.

Step 2 Use the include mini pitcher to fill the AromaDoft Diffuser to the max fill line.

Step 3 Make sure not to overfill past the max fill marking on the inside of the diffuser edge.

Step 4 Add your choice of essential oils to the water and turn on the diffuser .

It now has found a permanent home right on my desk where I can enjoy it every single day!

Seriously check out that powerful mist stream!!

I can’t forget to mention the great low price! These are now on sale for just $29.87 (Was $49.99).

*Saving Dollars and Sense Tip: Right now you can save an additional 20% off this diffuser when you use the coupon code MARCH416 during checkout, making the final price just $ 23.90 for a limited time only!


If you are looking for a really great diffuser that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg, then I suggest you grab at least one of these now, while you can!

Order yours here. 

The company that sells these great diffusers also has some really nice diffuser necklaces, including the one my husband was so excited to get!

I had no idea that he would even want one, so I just never thought to look for one for him.

But when it arrived he could not wait to put it on and choose his own essential oils to add to it. I was pretty impressed with his first choice being Frankincense.

Easter Basket Idea for Guys

Saving Dollarsand Sense

guys easter basket

I was trying to think of a gift to send to my son in the military this year that he would find useful.

My first thoughts were that I want to send him something practical because he really doesn’t have a lot of space for too much. Also I wanted to help him by sending something he would otherwise have to buy for himself.

After a little thinking I knew I wanted to give him a basket of shaving products since he must always keep a very close shave. I know his favorite brand has always been the Schick Hydro® Razors which is why I knew those were the right ones for his gift.

So I headed to Meijer since I know they always carry a nice selection of products and I wanted to get some different things to fill his basket.

When I heard that you can save up to $11 via mPerks on the NEW Schick Hydro® Razors at Meijer it sealed the deal for me!

Easter Basket idea

The NEW Schick Hydro® Razors now have:

Improved Glide – 80% more lubricant surface area for gel extrusion with new recessed micro-slits

Improved Safety – reduced blade spans minimize skin bulge between blades. Hydro gel now moisturizes your skin for up to 2 hours after your shave

Improved Comfort – hydrating gel reservoir reduces friction by 40% vs. lube strips. New larger guard bar design for increased skin stretch

The Schick® Line includes Hydro 5, Hydro 5 Sensitive, Hydro cartridge refills, Edge Shave Gel. Basically everything I need to make a basket I know he will appreciate receiving!

STAINMASTER™ Carpet Cleaner Meijer Deal

Saving Dollarsand Sense


The last few weeks I have been trying to get my home a little more organized and in good order.

This week I am focusing on my office.

I am so glad that I was able to clear out a pile of books that we used when my kids were in school. Freeing up some space and removing the daily reminder that was keeping me from fully being able to embrace this newest season of life that I find myself on the brink of has been almost therapeutic for me.

I’ve been trying to clear out all of the clutter including the pile of unpacked boxes that have taken up residence in a corner of the room.

When I began going through everything and removing the pile, I found that the stains in the carpet were much more noticeable that before without the boxes distracting the eye from the stains.

I did the best I could to get the stains out. This carpet is fairly new and I don’t have the money in my budget to replace carpet that should still have many years left. So I knew I needed to find another way to restore my carpet to the state is should be.

Nothing was really working for me until I learned about a new product line debuting at Meijer stores now.

STAINMASTER™ is launching three new products in Meijer stores across the Midwest for households with kids, pets and everything else life may bring to cause a spill!

STAINMASTER™ Carpet Stain Remover – Quickly powers out tough stains.

STAINMASTER™ Pet Stain Remover – Eliminates odors from pet stains through ODOR REMOVE™ technology.

STAINMASTER™ Rug Stain Remover – Designed specifically for area and accent rugs.

To celebrate the in-store launch, there is a featured mPerks offer running Sept. 13 – Oct. 10.


Head to Meijer now through October 10th and you can use this mPerks coupon to save $0.50 off your choice of the three different STAINMASTER™ options available.

My problem with these kind of products is that they usually leave a sticky residue behind which I swear just attracts every single particle of dirt around.

So you clean that spot away only to find it has returned later on.

What I really love about this stuff is that it not only cleans your stain away without leaving behind a sticky residue, it also is designed to actually repel dirt and other stain culprits so your carpet is protected from future possible stain situations.


The cast iron feet of my antique school desk left behind a nasty, stubborn rust stain that was no match for the STAINMASTER™ carpet cleaner!!


Check out how nice and clean my carpet is now that I used the STAINMASTER™ cleaner on it!

I had thought my carpet was ruined for sure and now it looks brand new again.
