The Easiest Way to Save Money While Shopping

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post.

I’ve never been one to scour newspapers and mailings for coupons; I’ve never been a coupon clipper because the few times that I did take the time to cut out a coupon and set it aside to get 50 cents off that lipstick I really wanted, it collected dust in the back of my junk drawer or was never to be seen again. Does this sound like you?

No coupon clipping for me, but instead I peruse the internet for deals and coupon codes, often for upwards of 20 minutes trying to find a promotion that actually works. In the end, I usually feel defeated knowing I wasted so much time only to come across 10 expired deals.

Well, now I have the solution to my coupon problems: Groupon Coupons. Yup, you heard it, not only is your easiest savings a fun rhyme, but it’s sooo much easier and more accessible than clipping and endless internet searching for broken links and expired codes.

It’s Simply Lindsay: Announcement!

Hi everyone, Ginny wanted to announce something: she’s going to be a big sister!

I just had a successful 12 week appointment and am excited to share this with you all. Baby’s heartbeat was strong and fast, between 165-169. Some of you may have seen from social media, especially Instagram, that I haven’t been feeling well for quite some time – well, little did I know at the beginning that I was, indeed, pregnant and not suffering from some horrible disease like I thought. Who knew?! A much better prognosis than I anticipated when I went to the doctor.

I’m really excited to fully document this pregnancy and have lots of fun post ideas lined up, from safe and effective beauty products and dressing through all stages to dealing with sickness and sleeplessness.

If you have any topics or questions you’d like me to cover specifically, please just leave a comment and let me know.

2 Ingredient Play Dough Recipe

I try not to buy too many toys – I don’t want to overwhelm my daughter (or myself!) with a bunch of “stuff,” so we keep a small basket of toys out we use every week, and any extra toys are put away to circulate in the mix when needed. This system works really well for our family, and Ginny is never bored!

However, now that she’s an extremely active, curious toddler, I’m searching for hands-on sensory activities that she’ll enjoy that doesn’t involve stuffing our play room with the dreaded “stuff.” Can any parents relate to this?

I think you’ll all love this $2, 2 ingredient play dough recipe (if you can even call it a recipe) to make with your kiddos. You may already have these ingredients on hand, and if not, take a trip to the dollar store for the following: conditioner and corn starch. It’s really that simple!

A quick trip to your cabinet or the store and two minutes later your kids are enjoying their new play dough.
