#TaxSeason #FathersDay #Organization #SpringCleaning SentrySafe Has You Covered!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



Tax season has just passed and either you had all of your important documents together... or you didn't. If you fall into the latter category, you realize how important it is to keep track of paperwork you are going to need, right from the get-go.


The Sentry Extra Large Digital Fire Alarm Safe provides the perfect place to safely organize and store all of your documents, receipts, records and other important paperwork, including everything you need for tax season (next year, or this year if you're running a bit behind). 


The safe is 1.23 cu. ft., so it really does hold a lot! The interior has adjustable shelves, so you can arrange and re-arrange space easily, as you need it. 


In addition to the 1" bolts and the pry-safe hinge, this safe has a loud audible alarm, and a digital touch keypad that ensure safe entry. If the battery dies, it also has a back-up battery charger on the outside that will allow you to enter your personal code to gain entry.


The Sentry Extra Large Digital Fire Alarm Safe also offers excellent peril protection against such things as fire and water. This is something you hope you're never going to need, but are so happy to have if you do. It is water-resistant in up to 8ft. of water, for up to 24 hours, and fire-resistant for up to an hour in degrees 1700 (Farenheit) and below.


Be prepared when this bad boy is delivered to your home, to have help moving it. There is a 2-man warning on the top of the box it comes in (you need two people to move it). No one was home when it was delivered here, so I had to use my son's skateboard to move it into the house (I didn't cause any harm to the board, still and the same, I don't recommend such action ;) ).


The safe has bolt-down hardware if you want to secure it to your floor.


You know what I immediately thought of when this safe came? Father's Day. I don't know what it is about safes, but they are an item that seems to make men very, very happy. At least I've found that to be true in my family. So, if you really want to spoil dad this year, this could be the very thing to make him over the moon happy. Betcha' he'd like to have it better than another pair of socks... or a tie. ;) AND he'd think of you every time he used it forever more. :)

Spring Cleaning & Organization with Master Lock
Here are easy ways to get your important paperwork and documents organized (and secure):

·         Utilize Digital-Savvy Solutions – Avoid unorganized piles of clutter that makes finding health bills, car vehicle files, etc. hard to find. Instead, store personal documents in the secure, easy-to-use Master Lock Vault app.  The app eliminates the worry of lost or stolen paper documents that contain confidential information and provides reliable, convenient 24/7 access so you can easily pull up information whenever and wherever you are.  It also serves as a password manager.

·         Keep Important Documents Secure & Organized - Whether or not you file documents digitally, it’s important to store the original, physical copies in a trusted, safe place. Designate a file folder for all important papers as you receive them and keep these in a secure lock box. Utilize the SentrySafe  Extra Large Digital Alarm Safe, which is fire- and water-resistant and provides ample storage for important, irreplaceable documents, such as legal forms, birth certificates, passports, social security cards, CDs, digital files, photos, and other valuables.

You can learn more about the safe by visiting the Sentry website. You can also follow along on Facebook and/or Twitter.

#AMomCanDream $25 Visa Gift Card Giveaway from Pfizer! #ad #sickjustgotreal

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



I remember it like it was yesterday. We were ready for our big holiday trip to New York City to see the Macy's Parade. We had a very posh hotel (unusual for us, we usually select family hotels/resorts) booked and ready to go, in an excellent location for enjoying the festivities. Seeing the parade is something I've wanted to do for as long as I can remember. And then #sickgotrealTM and my youngest came down with a really nasty flu bug. Like the mom in the video above, I was instantly overwhelmed, and wishing I could be in NYC watching the parade with the family because hey, #AMomCanDream, but that only lasted a few seconds. In an instant, I knew it was far more important that my son, who was sick, be snuggled up in his own bed, not traveling, and that I be right there by his side.


We're always ready for those times when an unexpected sick day comes to visit in our family. We keep a steady supply of Pfizer platform products on hand. Whether it's cold, cough, fever or flu (or any combination of the above) we've got the right product in the house to make sure the kids are getting rest and relief.


I can't protect my kiddosfrom germs and sickness all of the time, but I can make sure they're comfortable while they're recovering. Thank you Pfizer, for being there.

Visit the #SickJustGotRealTM website to learn more about the Pfizer line of products. Pick up some great tips while you're there, and chances are high too, that you'll even score a coupon or two. You can also follow along on Facebook.

One lucky winner gets a $25 Visa Gift Card, courtesy of Pfizer. US entrants only.

Homeselfe is Giving Away a $250 Visa Gift Card!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Chances are high you've taken a selfie or two in the last few years. I used to laugh at my kids for doing it, and roll my eyes at the selfies all over social media, but you know what...they've become the norm and people of every age are doing it all of the time. 'Selfie' is a standard vocabulary word for today's generation, and once my grandbaby came along, I got in on the selfie action too, at least every now and again. She likes it when Grandma Rosey holds up the camera or phone and we take a little selfie together, which means I like it too. ;) Did you know though, that there is a new kind of 'selfe'  in town (spelled differently on purpose), and it's one that is going to allow you to save big time!!


Homeselfe.com is the program I am referring to, and they have a system in place that is is easy to use, fun to do and it's going to save you some money too. That's a winning combo, right? All you have to do is walk around your house, and take some pictures of it (home selfies, or selfe's as the case may be). Then you will send them in to the company, to be analyzed. Once they are finished assessing what you've sent in, they will generate a report for you. On it you will find great tips, ways and ideas personalized to you, that might help you to be able to lower your utility costs! That is wonderful in and of itself, but it gets better because the report is free! Why? Because Homeselfe is a company that cares. If everyone is doing their part to be as energy efficient as possible, it's going to create a domino effect that is collectively good for us all.

Everyone likes to save money, and with all of the things we have to plug in today, things can get a bit energy-use crazy. I'm looking around the room I'm in right now and I see two things charging, and in a minute, before I head off to work, I'll plug in this laptop I'm on to have it charging too. If you think of everything you charge in just one week's time... and then multiply that by every house on your block that's doing the same... or think even bigger to every house nationally and beyond, that might be doing the same, it definitely adds up. If we all work together to help reduce energy use, it's going to be beneficial to everyone. Hurrah to Homeselfe for grabbing that concept and running with it, coming up with a valid way they can help.

You can learn more about Homeselfe and how to use their free service by visiting their website. You can also follow them on Facebook and/or Twitter.

One lucky winner gets a $250 Visa Gift Card! Thank you Homeselfe!! US entrants only.

Aeromax Encourages STEM with a Youth or Adult Lab Coat

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Career Day at the School
This STEM lab coat from Aeromax was a big hit!
Lasts week my son had Career Day at his school, and this year he decided to go as a scientist! His awesome new STEM coat from Aeromax and some slicked down hair (because according to my 8-yr-old who is an authority on such things, that is how you must wear your hair in such a coat, ) was all he needed to complete the look. The outfit was easy, effective, and very cool! 

Science is my son's favorite class, and learning about all grade-school facets of it makes him very happy. I known STEM is a buzzword these days, and I'm really glad that it is, not just for the boys, but for the girls too! 


The coat itself is a really nice quality of material. It's definitely made to last a long time. It also sports a collar, and a full-button front. (2) roomy front pockets are included on the front, so that your budding scientist can have his or her instant necessities at hand. The coat comes in both youth and adult sizes.


Dressing in 'costume' is something my son has loved since he could walk. Now-a-days he's getting too big to run around as Batman, Robin or Captain America (*sigh, the baby years are all gone*) so this was a more 'grown-up' alternative to him for dressing up and it suited him well (literally and figuratively speaking). The coat definitely offered a fun way to spend school Career Day.

Nice long length to protect your clothing during research and experiments

Beyond toys, quality authentic dress-up has been a hallmark for Aeromax fans. Their Get Real Gear and My 1st Career Gear has won every toy industry award over the last 19 years! Parents will want to make room in the kids’ closets for the newest STEM-themed buttoned lab coats and NASA flight jackets designed for children and adults.


Once kids place their arms into these realistic looking lab coats, jackets and shirts, don’t be surprised if they start a penchant for tinkering! The outfits are enticing to girls as well as boys. With an emphasis on STEM and STEAM and even STREAM studies, the appealing apparel might be just the encouragement to launch a science career. Rocket scientist anyone? Pocket protectors and slide rule are optional!

Do you have a child who likes to dress up or don a costume? This lab coat would be amazing for role play, spawning creativity, and getting those minds to turning on what experiement to work on next. I say keep one on hand, and have a STEM experiment weekly. It would be a great addition as a home schooling prop too.
