Get a little back to school help with Campus Book Rentals!






It's that time of year again. Kids are gearing up for back to school and us parent's are celebrating! Even with the excitement things can be a little hectic. Especially as we prepare for all of the back to school expenses. As a mother of 4, two in high school and two in Middle School, I know just how expensive supplies can get. I can only imagine the cost when they hit college. I'm glad I have CampusBookRentals.com in my corner. 

Some the awesome perks are:

-save 40-90% off of bookstore prices 
-free shipping both ways
-can highlight in the textbooks 
-flexible renting periods
And one of my favorite perks: Campus Book Rentals donates to Operation Smile, an international children's medical charity that heals children's smiles, forever changing their lives for every textbook rented!





CampusBookRentals.com is a book renting company that has worked with thousands of students on over 5,000 campuses. Here's how it works. You go to their site, and in the search box search the book you need. You will then be given a list of options. Find your book and you will see a page open like THIS. It gives you the amount and a due date. (You have the option to change the due date) add to your cart and check out! They offer free shipping both ways, they have a 30 day risk free return policy, and live customer support.

Campus Book Rentals now has a new program called RentBack. 
RentBack is new initiative that allows students to rent the textbooks they own - to other students... which is awesome because it makes them 2-4x more money compared to what they'd make through buyback options! (selling their books back at the end of the semester) Isn't that awesome?! For more information on RentBack check out the quick video below!



So if you're like me and on a budget for back to school, be sure to check out CampusBookRentals.com ! They're sure to help your wallet breathe a little easier!

EatSmart Precision Tracker Digital Bathroom Scale Review

Thank You to EatSmart Products for allowing me to review their product free of charge in exchange for my honest review.


Since our recent move, I have had a huge focus on losing weight. I have started walking a mile a day and drinking more water. This is a huge step for me since I hadn't drank a glass of water in a very long time, and don't think I have ever purposely walked a mile!



So now that my motivation is there, I wanted a scale dependable enough to track my progress. One of my favorite features of the scale is that it stores data for up to 8 people. I knew the minute I set it out that my husband would be on it and I didn't want it to interfere with my readings, so we just sat him up his own profile. The scale gives me my current weight and my last weight. Huge plus since I am bad about not writing things down. I always think "I'll remember that", but of course I never do!

The EatSmart Scale is super easy to set up. Simply set it on a hard, flat floor, calibrate according to the instructions and your ready for use. The calibration is a very importany step. If not properly calibrated it will give you a higher weight.

Features of the scale according to the EatSmart site:

Measuring Functions: Short Term and Long Term Weight Tracking Capabilities
Proprietary Automatic User Identification Technology; Stores personal data for up to 8 users
EatSmart "Step-On" Technology - Get instant readings!
Large, 3.5" LCD display with white backlight - Easy to read.

Graduation Increments of .2 lbs. / .1kg
Ultra thin, sleek design with high quality tempered glass platform
Max Weight: 400 lbs / 180 kgs
Auto Calibrated; Includes 4 AAA batteries

Overall I am extremely pleased with my scale and highly recommend one for each household.

Buy It!
You can purchase the EatSmart scale for only $44.95! that's a savings of $35!

Emerson Creek Pottery Cracker Basket Review

Thank You to Emerson Creek Pottery for providing me with their product free of charge in exchange for my honest review.

Emerson Creek has been in business since 1977 in Virginia where they create beautiful, non-toxic pottery that is eco-friendly. They even pack their pieces in eco-friendly cornstarch Peanuts, and ship them in recycled fiber boxes! It feels really good knowing that I can make my home beautiful all while being eco-friendly in the process. For 10 Green Reason to choose Emerson Creek Pottery be sure to check out there post here.


I am always looking for beautiful things to fill my home. My kitchen especially. I spend lots of time there, baking and cooking for my large family so of course I want it to be filled with the best of the best. I was ecstatic when Emerson Creek Pottery offered to allow me to review one of their cracker baskets. I chose the Iris Cracker Basket to base my review. I have been storing my tomatoes picked from the garden in my basket. My family likes a sliced tomato with dinner so the cracker basket is a perfect size to hold a few sliced tomatoes.  


This pattern is of Japanese irises in 3 beautiful colors. They have a very large collection of items in this particular pattern. All quiet beautiful to say the least.


It's hand painted, lead free and made in the USA. All 3 great choices for me and my family as I like to support the American industry whenever possible. Emerson Creek Pottery has many items to choose from. They have everything from cracker baskets that I received to ceramic pet dishes and candle holders, so there is definitely something in their online store for everyone!

Not sure what you're looking FOR but have a pattern idea? Shop by pattern! Just another great feature that I enjoyed from their page. Overall I am completely pleased with my product and experience with Emerson Creek Pottery and will be a return customer.

Walls Need Love Wall Decal Review

Thank You to Walls Need Love for sending me their products free of charge in exchange for my honest review.

I chose the Split Logs Wall Decal to base my review. I wanted this to go in my hallway since it is very large and has an older "theme" with the barn wood stair case. 


This wall was very plain. We added a fresh coat of paint but it was still lacking. The location made it difficult to really hang pictures there so I knew my logs would be the perfect addition!

And the finished product

Walls Need Love is a small company that believes in giving back! 1% of their sales plants trees! So far nearly 20,000 trees have been planted via Nashville non-profit SoundForest.org. Their customer service department is amazing! They were very helpful and was able to answer any of the questions I had. It took me a while to choose the right decal for me because there are so many to choose from but Elizabeth was very patient! They also sent a cute little gift bag that included chocolate, candies, flower seeds and more! That gave the package an extra special touch. It assured me that they takes pride in their customers.

Walls Need Love is also very affordable! Their prices will be very hard to beat. My Split Logs were only $38, elsewhere they started at $69. They were super easy to apply (and remove) and have not budged since I put them on. So whether you are looking to completely re-decorate a room or just add a little touch of something different, Walls Need Love is definitely the way to go. They have something for every budget, and every room! Highly Recommend!

Lorex Sweet Peek Video Baby Monitor Review

Thank You to Lorex Technology for providing me with their product free of charge in exchange for my honest review.

Welcome to LOREX Technologies, Inc


We recently had the opportunity to review the Sweet Peek Video Baby Monitor for our new granddaughter. When my kids were smaller you didn't hear much of a video monitor so I was ecstatic to receive this. It definitely gives you a sense of comfort by being able to see the baby instead of just hearing her. 



I feel a baby monitor is definitely a must when you have a new baby. First time Mom's especially have the tendency to sit with their new baby day and night and end up exhausting themselves. (I know I did, and seeing this same pattern with my daughter in law as well) The Sweet Peek is a great way to see your precious bundle of joy from anywhere in the house and still be able to get chores done. 



One of my favorite features is the Two-Way Talk. If you're in the middle of something and can't break away right then, you can talk to your little one until you get there. The Sweet Peek also has built in lullabies to help soothe the baby. Have other little ones in the home? Not to worry. The Sweet Peek can accommodate up to 4 wireless baby cameras, allowing you to keep an eye on them all at once. (A feature I could definitely use for my teenagers or rambunctious pets) 




Sweet Peek Monitor Includes:

2.4" Portable LCD Monitor 
Crystal Clear Night Vision
Digital Zoom
Two-Way Talk
Soothing Lullabies
Built-In Nightlight
Crisp Sound
450 ft Outdoor Wireless Range
Accommodates up to 4 Cameras
Up to 8 Hours of Battery Life

The camera is slim and doesn't take up much space. It fits perfect on a mantle or wall shelf. Overall, we are completely pleased with our monitor. It gives us all the sense of security we need and the new Mom sanity knowing she can still see the sweet girl from anywhere in the house.

Back To School Blast $1000 Visa Gift Card Giveaway! Ends 8~15

Inline image 2

Welcome to the Back to School Blast!

Getting your family prepared to head back to school, can be difficult especially after a long, fun-filled summer. Here are a few of our favorite Back to School Tips to help you along the way.

1. Back-to-School Supplies Checklist - Backpack? Check. Pencils? Check. Safety scissors? Not Yet. Use the same checklist each time you head out to grab supplies, to keep track of what you have already purchased and the things you still need to. These are also handy if you have more than one child. Simply print 2, 3, 4 list and add their name to the top.

2. Shop Early! There is nothing worse than heading out last minute only to find everything picked over or a crowd so large that it's almost intimidating.

3. Look for deals. Shop Around. I know a one stop shop is more convenient but you are likely to save more by shopping the other local stores.

4. Don't take the kids along when shopping for supplies! I always seem to spend twice as much if I take the kids along on a grocery trip so imagine when I take them back to school shopping for supplies. 

5. When shopping for multiple children like my 4, always take another adult along. My husband usually will take on the task of two and I take on the other 2. Even though they are teens, it's easier if we Separate and give them a time limit for each section. They get no more than 20 minutes in the shoe aisle, etc.


The Back to School Blast was organized by Mom Powered Media.
Please take a moment to also visit our lovely co-hosts, whom without them great things such as these would not be possible: My Vegan Gluten-Free Life, Plum Crazy About Coupons, Capri's Coupons, Downshifting - Your Family, Your Home, Your Life, Jack of all trades, Master of Mom™, Quick Tattletails, Mew Review and Iowa Mom.

One lucky winner will receive a $1,000 Visa Gift Card!

Giveaway ends August 15th at 11:59pm, open worldwide, ages 18+. If the winner resides outside of the US, they will receive Paypal cash. To enter please use the Rafflecopter form below. Good luck.

Glass Dharma Review

Thank You to Glass Dharma for providing me with their products free of charge in exchange for my honest review.  



I had never heard of Glass Straws until I recently saw a blog review speaking of Glass Dharma. Glass Dharma straws are fun, eco-friendly straws that all started when David Leonhardt (a glassblower) noticed a local glass shop was selling glass straws. Something he had never heard of. He was struck by the elegance and realized that was a partial solution to the "plastics problem", therefore, Glass Dharma became about. 

Glass Dharma Products are Hand-made in the U.S.A. so buying from GlassDharma means that your dollar is not going off-shore - it stays right here in the U.S.A.


I received 4 different glass straws to base my review and I couldn't be happier. Not only are the better for the environment, they are also a great conversation starter. Everyone that has seen them in my home have asked what they were and what was "so special" about them. We just really don't think of how a simple little thing like a straw can make such a huge impact. By reducing waste now, we are helping the environment for later. One straw at a time. I definitely give Glass Dharma a 2 thumbs up. In price, quality and customer service and highly recommend their products to you all.

SANUS Full Motion TV Wall Mount Giveaway

Down South Savings receives free products for review purposes, and may sometimes be compensated for posts. Posts may also contain affiliate (marketing) links .


For many Americans, a flat panel TV is a great way to enjoy family time and entertainment. However, most parents are unaware of the safety risks that flat panel TVs pose for kids. Due to increasing size and new ultra thin designs, today’s flat panel TVs can easily tip over when bumped or pulled, toppling off of furniture and causing injury or even death.

Bringing this risk to the forefront, SANUS, the leading designer and manufacturer of flat panel TV wall mounts, has partnered with Safe Kids Worldwide. By educating consumers on the risk of unsecured flat panel TV’s, SANUS and Safe Kids Worldwide offer safe solutions for families across the nation by reducing TV tip-over related injuries and fatalities.

A 2011 US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) report on flat panel TV safety revealed:
·
  •  A child is killed every three weeks from an unsecured TV
  •  Every 45 minutes a child visits an emergency room due to a TV tip-over related injury
  • · Between 2000 and 2011, 215 fatalities have resulted from TV tip-over
  • · An estimated 17,000 people each year, the majority of which are children, are treated for injuries from TV tip-overs
  • · Reported cases have increased almost 25% from 2006 to 2010, and over the last 10 years, injuries have increased by 31%


SANUS TV Mounting Tips:

· Easy 1, 2, 3 installation with a wall template to ensure even placement
Online video walkthrough of simple installation available at any time
No additional tools necessary – all required installation hardware is included in package
Live customer support available 6 days a week

One lucky reader is going to win the Flat Panel SANUS TV Vuepoint Mount F180.



Features:

Supports up to 130 lbs
11 degrees of tilt with the touch of a finger
Universal mounting pattern to fit virtually any 32"60" flat-panel TV
Post-installation adjustments ensure the TV is level
In-arm cable management channel conceals cables the length of the mount
Product shipping weight in pounds:51.9
Product dimensions in inches (L*W*H):30.51*2.9*19.69


One Lucky reader will receive a complimentary flat panel SANUS TV Vuepoint Mount F180, courtesy of SANUS. The winner can receive a mount that fits their respective TV. **Please note that this will not include the actual installation of the equipment. **

As a Mom to 4 there is nothing more important that the safety of my kids. Now that they are teens I worry about the safety of my TV's as they run through the house. SANUS has the tools to protect my children, and my TV!

Walltat.com Review

Thank You to Walltat.com for providing me with their products free of charge in exchange for my honest review.

Wall Decals  Giant Tree

I'm always looking for ways to change the design in my home but I'm not always looking to paint. Paint is not only expensive but it's a lot of work when you change it up as much as I do. This time I wanted to go the decal route, so I reached out to Walltat.com. They have so many beautiful designs to choose from that it took me quiet a while to choose just one. My final selection was the Butterfly Flight Wall Decal. It's a 42x46 in decal with the largest butterfly being 19". 



I got them for my daughter's room so I chose Violet as the colors. I knew it would go great with the purple walls and her butterfly comforter and curtains. The Butterfly theme is perfect for those of any age. Before I passed it to her, I used the comforter in my room so it's not a theme she will outgrow any time soon. 


At Walltat.com you can also design your own decal! If you're not seeing what you like in their collection or you have something specific in mind, simply click the Custom tab on their page and upload your own. The possibilities are endless! 

Overall, I'm really pleased with my decal and the amazing customer service I received at Walltat.com. Their prices are very affordable and they have something to fit every taste and budget! So whether you're looking to re-design a room or just add a little touch of personalization, Walltat is the place to go.
