Baby, It’s Cold Outside! Take 40% off of All Marika Tops!
I just got this workout outfit in the mail today by Marika and absolutely LOVE it! Not only do they offer tall options for pants (wohoo to all the tall girls out there), but the top is amazingly comfy. I had my daughter leave my head out of the picture, because today is one of those homeschool, work at home kind of day with no makeup and my hair in a bun. So, although I wanted to share my new favorite outfit with you I wanted to spare you a full length picture.

Personally, I don’t like to wear anything that is super tight that is why I love this shirt. It is made of a light weight soft material, and it’s so comfortable. In fact, my kids keep wanting to snuggle up next to me because the fabric is so silky and soft. There are tons of different options to choose from such as tank tops, short sleeve shirts, long sleeve, and jackets.  Same goes for pants, with varying lengths. I don’t know about you, but I live in yoga pants when I am at home. I am so excited about my new workout outfit, it has even inspired me to get on my treadmill today!!

Whether you’ve got workout gear on your Christmas list this year or you want to reward yourself you definitely want to check out the selection. Right now, Marika is offering 40% off all tops with code BABY40.

Free Teeth Whitening & 25% off Crowns! Exclusive Time 2 $ave Offer!

I am going to be a big girl and admit something to you. I really, really, really, really, really do not like going to the dentist. I don’t like the sounds, smells, or anything poking around my mouth. There you go. Every stinking time I go to the dentist I have to get a cavity filled, a root canal, or a crown. I promise I am not exaggerating. Let me interject here it is NOT because I don’t brush my teeth and floss. In fact, I don’t drink sugary drinks and I am purposeful in taking good care of my teeth. I just happen to have weak enamel. So no matter what I do to prevent problems genetics have the upper hand.

In saying all that, I absolutely love my dentist, Dr. Shabo. Not only does he have a gorgeous brand new office in Chattanooga, but a staff that is very gentle and complimentary spa treatments that certainly make going to the dentist a more pleasant experience for babies like me! He always makes me feel very comfortable and is understanding about the problems I have had with my teeth. I started going to Dr. Shabo several years ago after his wife, Tina, had organized and hosted a coupon workshop. Recently, while Tina and I were chatting I mentioned the possibility of Dr. Shabo offering an exclusive coupon to Time 2 $ave readers and she loved the idea! [Read more...]

After doing a little online research, I decided to give royal icing a try. Also, I just received a package from Sweet Creations by Good Cook™ that included a Silicone Baking Mat, decorator bottles, and a pastry cutter that I wanted to try out. [Read more...]

If you love getting a great deal on gently used kids clothes while helping others at the same time, Schoola Stitch may be the perfect fit for you. Never heard of Schoola Stitch? The concept is actually quite simple: Schoola Stitch runs clothing drives at schools all around the country.  They collect gently loved clothing items and then sell them at their online storefront at up to 90% off retail prices. Then, they gift up to 40% percent of the proceeds directly back to the school who donated the items. The end result? The parents enjoy less clothing clutter, someone is able to purchase some much needed clothing at a great price, and the donating school gets cash. Everyone wins.

Chocolate Mint Popcorn Balls on time2saveworkshops.com

I haven’t made popcorn balls in years. When I was given the opportunity to try out a cool new popcorn baller from Good Cook, I immediately said yes as I knew my kids would enjoy helping me. Also, I have learned that I can incorporate lessons on fractions and measurements when we cook together.

These were so easy to make. I started with homemade microwave popcorn, then found an easy 4 ingredient recipe for the yummy sweet “sticky” part of the recipe.
