I’ve mentioned that I really enjoy cleaning and organizing.  So when spring cleaning time rolls around, I’m all in without much prodding.  Especially if I have new organization supplies or cute rubber gloves to play with.

How to make money while you spring clean! Get motivated to clean up when you see how easy it is to make money while you do it.

Not everyone gets quite as pumped at the thought of spring cleaning as I do, however.  My friends have confirmed this for me by the rolling of their eyes when I talk excitedly about organized drawers. Continue reading »

The holidays are near – scarily so, as I’ve done some procrastinating this year – and everywhere you go there are reminders that the gift giving season is upon us.  If you’re planning large shared purchases or group gift-giving this year then you need to check out Giftfund, a new mobile app that’s specifically designed to make that task easier.

Bubbles is very “girly girl”.  She loves sparkles and glitter, lip gloss and hair ties, skirts and ruffles and dolls and everything else you can think of.  But on the flip side of that coin she loves planes, trains and cars, bugs, and playing ball.

A bit before Halloween I ran across Monster 500 toys and showed them to Bubbles.  She got a huge kick out of the pictures and so when I was offered a few Monster 500 products to check out I knew she’d be excited.  Hubby was impressed as we unpacked the box, too, which is always a good sign.

Monster 500 Flattop Frank Large Vehicle

There are 10 different Monster 500 characters available in the 3-inch diecast vehicles.  Each comes with a trading card that has a code that unlocks a monster car in the Monster 500 Racing App.  Larger vehicles (4″ high and 5″ long) are also available in four monster choices: Zoom Zombie, CrocPot, Lead Foot, and Flattop Frank.
