A Freebie For You! The 4 Essential Habits of Healthy Families Audio Course

I come across resources like this fairly often, and usually I’m like eh, no need to share. There no new information here so it’s not worth taking up our time listening to these.

But this time I got so sucked in that I actually took the time to listen to all four podcasts while doing house and computer work yesterday. Several times throughout, I said oh, nice to know or write that one down or I am sooo going to start doing that. I am inspired by this. (And dude…it’s free.)

So here I am, telling you about it. I think you’ll really like it. The information is super practical for families in every season.

The course contains a collection of  four 25ish minute long lessons from trusted bloggers:

  • Essential Habit #1: “Nurturing your Best Self” (with Heather from Mommypotamus)
  • Essential Habit #2: “Staying Fit as a Family (Gym Membership Not Required)” (with Crystal from Money Saving Mom)
  • Essential Habit #3: “From Scratch Meal-Making” (with Katie from Kitchen Stewardship)
  • Essential Habit #4: “Using Natural Remedies” (with Katie from Wellness Mama)

Beyond the audio, each lesson comes with a PDF transcript, and a practical “Take Action” guide.

This FREE mini-course called “The 4 Essential Habits of Healthy Families” is brought to you by Spark Health and Ultimate Bundles. You can be looking forward to a brand new Healthy Living Ultimate Bundle coming up in a few weeks.

In the meantime, enjoy this fun freebie! You’ll have to let me know what your favorite take-aways are from these audios. I’d tell you mine, but that would be cheating. ;)

Note: This mini course is only available until Sunday, September 6th, so don’t miss it.

On-The-Go Snack Deals

healthydeals

During sports seasons, I do lots of my normal from-scratch cooking of hearty meals to fill my athletes. But I also try to have some packaged snacks on hand for easy grab-and-go options for the boys (because I am not wonder woman). With soccer season around the corner, I’ve been scoping out some deals to help make the dollars stretch. I wanted to share the deals I found in case you need them too!

All of these are through Amazon and can be combined with their Subscribe and Save option to get an additional 15% off. Read this post to learn more about how to combine coupons with 15% off subscribe and save through Amazon.

20% off Pure Organics Bars and Snacks

Our favorite is the Chocolate Brownie variety, but they have several choices.

15% off Nature’s Bakery Whole Wheat Fig Bars

We haven’t tried these before – have you? They look good and there are quite a few flavors to choose from!

Stretch Island Summer Strawberry Fruit Leather

Be sure to check out other flavors that are on sale too. I liked that we could get a box of 30 of these for just $9.53.

15% off 18 Rabbits Products

We’ve tried the Cranberry Apricot but are thinking about trying a different one for fun. :)

20% off many Bob’s Red Mill Products

This isn’t a pre-packaged snack, but there are several pages of Bob’s Red Mill products that are offering this coupon along with subscribe and save. A great deal!

We’ll pick up our Bountiful Basket order tomorrow (I’ll take pictures!), plus I need to do a grocery store run. We got Asa moved into his college dorm today. He has begun 3-a-day soccer practices and will continue until classes begin the 26th. I’ve cried really big tears today. I didn’t expect it to hit me this hard, you know, since he moved a total of 5 minutes down the road. But leaving is leaving, I guess. What a great first chapter in our parenting book. Looking forward to what is to come, even if I am teary-eyed right now. :)

Have a wonderful, blessed weekend!

Healthy Deals Online This Weekend (And I’m Stocking Up)

My Amazon subscribe and save order is going to be just a little bit huge this month. This is because my family has been so scattered all summer at various camps and such, so my grocery spending was cut drastically. Now it’s time to get back into the swing of things with everyone at home, and that means more food (understatement). I’m obviously in denial that my oldest is moving out next week. Just leave me in my happy place with all my babes under one roof for just a few more days, okay?

Even without Asa at home (except that he is right now, for one more week, lalala) – we will go through tons of food. Plus I’m counting on him stopping by frequently and bringing every single one of his friends from college to sit at our table and enjoy food and conversation.

Before I sign off for the weekend, I wanted to share some special deals you should be aware of…

healthydeals

There are other Amazon Deals listed here, but I wanted to highlight these two specifically because they are so super good:

Get a coupon for 15% off Organic Fair Trade Raw Honey. Plus if you buy at least 4 other subscribe and save items, you’ll get an additional 15% off. This means you can get 3 16-ounce jars of honey for just $4.99 each. That’s even less than when I shared about this a couple weeks ago, so it was worth mentioning again. :)

wholesome sweeteners honey

Clip this 25% off coupon for cocoa powder at Amazon. Pair it with the 15% off bonus you get when you purchase at least 4 other subscribe and save items during the month, and you can get 2 pounds of Organic Cacao Powder for just $13.90 total. I can’t get over how amazing that deal is.

In other news…

It’s a free shipping weekend at Tropical Traditions! Use the code 10815 at check-out for free shipping to apply. I highly recommend taking advantage of the BOGO deal on Organic Coconut Cream Concentrate along with the free shipping. This stuff is so delicious!!

Interestingly enough – honey, cocoa, and coconut cream concentrate all taste fantastic altogether at the same time.

I also wanted to mention to all of you who are new around here – if you haven’t ever shopped at Vitacost before, they’ll give you $10 free on your first purchase! This is super fun and makes for a great and inexpensive online shopping experience for great food. Get all the details about this here.

Our family has big plans this weekend. The two middle boys head off to a youth event (because a million weeks at church camp wasn’t enough time with their great friends). The rest of us will enjoy the wedding of a dear couple we love, plus get caught up on some work here at home. (And by caught up, I don’t even mean it because there’s no such thing as “caught up.”)

Hope you have a great weekend!

Weekend Laundry, Giveaway Winner, and Some Fun Deals (Like Organic Virgin Coconut Oil for 28¢ Per Ounce!)

Our family was at church camp all last week, came home for about 22 hours over the weekend to do laundry and get ready for another week of camp, and now we are offline again. I tell ya, there’s something magical that happens at camp that makes a person forget anything about real life. Work? What’s that? It’s been wonderfully refreshing to spend time with so many youth and to spend so much time in the Word and in praise to God.

In between loads of laundry over the weekend, here is what I accomplished for you:

I finally drew a giveaway winner for our Vessel Scents of Style giveaway. (Drum roll please.) The winner is: Tracy Moore: tracyflemingmoore@

Tracy, email me and I’ll forward your information on to Jolene for your prize!

Don’t forget, anyone who places a $50+ order using Jolene’s Vessel Scents of Style consultant number #100304 will receive a charm of your choice for free! (Don’t order the charm with your other items. Instead, contact Jolene after you make your purchase and tell her which charm you would like to receive. Her email is  pand5js@gmail.com.

Next, I checked Amazon because I needed to order more of these {blush}. But then I found so many amazing deals I had to take the time to order them and tell you about them too. Look at all of these great prices!!!

~ I haven’t seen a price this low on organic coconut oil for a very long time! Grab a 54-ounce tub of Carrington Farms Extra Virgin Coconut Oil for as low as $15.28. That is only $0.28/ounce. I am so excited about this! Get this low price when you click over to get the 15% off coupon they are offering, plus pair it with the additional 15% off subscribe and save offer. Boom. Super savings.

Amazon is offering a 20% off Larabar Coupon – which makes for a fantastic price on a case of your favorite Larabars. Many of the cases are also offering an additional 15% off if you take advantage of the subscribe and save discount. Super awesome! One of our favorites has become the Sweet and Salty Mixed Nut Roll. Have you tried that one yet? So yum.

~ If you like Annie’s products, you’ll want to check out the coupon offering 20% off Annie’s Snacks. Pair that with the 15% subscribe and save bonus too. :)

annies

 

~ There’s a 25% off Kashi Coupon! That’s huge savings on another “I don’t have time to cook this meal but prefer to at least serve a better-for-you convenience food.” I got a case of my boy’s favorite cereal for only $1.87 per box. Yay! Can you tell I love combining subscribe and save with Amazon coupons?

kashi blueberry

~ There’s also a coupon so we can get 25% off Natural Value Items. Pair this with (say it with me…) the 15% off subscribe and save bonus and you’re golden. I have tried many Natural Value foods and love them all.

Okeedokee, no more computer for me. Continue to pray for Matt and me this week as we teach classes to the teens at church camp. I’ll be praying for you too!

What to do with Stinky Shoes (Not that You Have Any of Course)

You know what really stinks?

Shoes. After they’ve had feet in them.

And after they’ve gotten wet. Or sweaty. Or dirty. Or wet, sweaty and dirty. You may think something large and furry crawled into your closet and died. Oh no. It’s just the shoes.

Thankfully there is hope.   You do not have to dread being in the same vehicle with (or within a ten mile radius of) the wearer of said shoes.

Wad up a big bunch of newspaper and stick them down into the shoes for a day or two. Set them outside in the sunshine if possible. Severely stinky shoes may require a removal of newspaper and re-stuffing of fresh newspaper after the first day for a continued de-stinking treatment.

newspapershoessm

If you enjoy sitting back with a nice cup of coffee while reading your newspaper, I highly recommend reading the newspaper before wading them into the shoes as the newspaper not be nearly as enjoyable after taking on the stink of the shoe.

And now I will end this post by saying that I find it comical that only a weird blogger such as myself will take the time to snap a picture of newspapers stuffed into stinky tennis shoes.
