How We Saved Hundreds of Dollars at Walt Disney World

We recently took a trip to Walt Disney World (WDW) with our three kids (3, 7, and 11). It’s true what they say… Disney is the most expensive day ever! We also had a checker at a Disney Springs store tell us that Disney makes dollars, not sense (after we joked about how much the item we were looking at was). Here are a few tips I have to help you save money on your next visit to WDW.
1.We stayed off property A few years ago, we went to Disneyland CA and stayed at a Disney resort. It was nice when the kids were younger because we were able to easily get back to our room for breaks. It was extremely convenient… however, it was very, very expensive. We decided that would be the last time we spent that much money on a room.
This time to WDW we decided to stay off property. We found a great deal through our Hilton Honors program. We scored a 2 bedroom (family room, full kitchen, washer/dryer) 7-night deal for under $1000. This resort was amazing, it had a huge pool with a water slide, daily ac…

How To Make Air Fryer Chicken Wings

Air Fryer Chicken Wings 
From Thawed or Frozen Chicken


I absolutely love chicken wings and nothing could be simpler and more delicious than making them at home in yourAir Fryer.
I recently purchased an air fryer for my family of 5 to make healthier foods. We do most of our cooking at home and also handle multiple food allergies. Cooking every meal at home can be very exhausting and time consuming. We bake a lot of our food. If you think about it baking can become time consuming: pre-heat oven, find the pan, spray or get foil, bake item, pull out, let cool, remember to turn off oven etc.... you get it, it's a process. There are also some items we do like fried and I hated using a traditional fryer.. all that oil was gross and a hassle to deal with. Who wants to clean out and dispose of disgusting oil all the time... not me! And thankfully I don't have to anymore. We love that the air fryer is super quick, not pre heating necessary. And clean up is a breeze with only one fry basket…

Pony-O Review

Pony-O Review


My hair has always been long, thick and curly, so I usually end up putting it up most days (even though I spend a lot of time styling it). More often than not, I straighten my hair because it's easier to maintain and lasts longer than curly. When I leave my hair curly, more products are needed to maintain the look I want. Over the years I have also tried many different hair accessories and haven't found one I am completely in love with. My face shape is more of an oval. Most products I've tried just give my head an egg shape, are too loose and after a while they give me a headache. I wanted to try the Pony-O after seeing ads on Facebook showing how cute a ponytail can look. I asked for this item for my stocking stuffer and low and behold there it was...  So lets dive right in and try this new product. 



THE PRODUCT: The Pony-O™Hair Accessory = 2 pieces for $19.95 (coupons and deals regularly offered... currently 2 pieces are on sale for $15.95)

Get Money Back From Deceptive Companies

Have you ever purchased a frozen meal? The ones that you throw into the microwave, look super appealing on the box and even have commercials showing how elegantly they are served. If you have then I'm sure you've noticed how deceptive the marketing can be for these types of meals. According to an article by the Daily Mail, The Art of Deceptive Advertising, they state that frozen food packages are constantly used to deceive consumers. And that nearly half of Americans believe advertising to be 'fairly honest'. Consumers continue to buy these products despite the fact that they look nothing like what is being advertised. Here is how consumers can fight back against deceptive advertising.
