In 2013, CVS introduced new mom friendly packaging for its formulas.  The new packaging includes three innovative features that make feeding time easier for all new moms: an easy open zip top removes foil with one pull, a no mess scoop holder and a built-in scoop leveler.

premiumCVS Brand products are on average 30% less expensive when compared to national brand equivalents – so you’ll always get more savings!

CVS/pharmacy Brand products meet the same FDA quality standards as national brand alternatives.

Visit CVS.com and also find them on FacebookTwitter, and YouTube.

Nicole’s take:  We are at CVS a lot – they are the pharmacy we use and I love their great deals! So I was excited to try out the CVS brand baby products! You can only imagine the diapers we go through in our house with 3 babies and I am always looking for durable diapers that don’t break the bank! The CVS diapers are great! They are very absorbent and don’t feel harsh at all.  The price is unbeatable and super low when they have a deal like they do this week! This week try out CVS brand diapers – you can snag a jumbo pack for just $3.99 after ExtraCare Rewards! We also got to try the CVS brand wipes and I am so impressed! CVS continues to be my one stop shop for just about everything!

Severe Weather Safety and Master Lock

by Nicole on September 1, 2014

lock

Having lived in south Florida for the last 11 years I am no stranger to severe weather.  I have been through at least 4 major hurricanes and every summer we get thunderstorms that quite often become severe.  I have learned to get prepared and stay prepared and most importantly to have a safety plan in place for your family.

This year our standard plans have changed completely with the addition of the triplets! On June 1, the start of hurricane season, we sat down with my parents to go over what we would do in the event of a storm and reformulated our family safety plan.  I am confident in our plan but I know you can never be too prepared for severe weather!

Master Lock has some great products available that will help make you more prepared though!

Adjustable locking cables from Master Lock:

  • Keyed Alike – order multiple Python™ Adjustable Locking Cables to open with the same key or order to match keys for padlocks with M1 cylinder.
  • Patented cinch locking mechanism holds cable tight at any position for perfect fit
  • 6′ (1.8m) long x 3/8″ (10mm) diameter braided steel cable for cut resistance
  • Yellow weather tough and rust resistant lock body with black bumper
  • Rekeyable patented wafer cylinder for maximum pick resistance
  • Also available made-to-order with any cable length 2′ (61cm) to 30′ (9.1m)

I am so excited to be able to link our outdoor hoses and anything else we have unsecured outside all together.  This will definitely come in handy for us!

 

I am a member of the Master Lock Live Secure Safety Squad. I receive compensation and product as a member but my opinions are my own.

If you’ve ever given a loving home to a shelter animal, you know what a life-changing event that can be—for both of you. Now children can experience the fun and love of adopting their own rescue pet…but without the house training!

An adorable new line of plush “rescue” dogs and cats—including labs, chihuahuas, beagles, German shepherds, tabby cats, rag dolls, and Siamese, among other adoptables—from the ASPCA are now available at KMART stores nationwide. Some of the plush come in their own carrying cases with a customizable pet tag. Others include a “vet pet” package for those plush needing your loving care; these include a stethoscope, neck cone, syringe and bandage to help nurse your animal back to health. There’s even a line of beanie babies donning ASPCA bandannas. The plush will retail for $4.99–24.99.

The plush are raising funds to protect animals from harm, and 3-5% of the purchase price of each product goes toward the great work that the ASPCA does.

Visit ASPCA.org and also find them on FacebookTwitter, YouTube and Pinterest.

Nicole’s take:  The ASPCA is such a great organization and it is so important to adopt from a shelter when getting an animal.  These plushes sold at KMART are such a great idea! We received the beagle and it is absolutely adorable! Super soft and the carrying case with the pet tag is such a fun addition! Having some of the proceeds go to the ASPCA is awesome and makes these plushes an even better deal!

August is almost gone, which means one thing: back-to-school time is here. With so many busy schedules coming back into full swing, it can be tricky to get a good meal on the table at the end of the day. But have no fear, the makers of Freschetta® pizza have your back. Freschetta® pizzas feature only premium ingredients for your family, including 100 percent real and all-natural cheeses, sauces made from ripe tomatoes and generously sliced vegetables picked at their peak.

Offered in multiple varieties, there’s something for everyone’s taste buds, even a Gluten Free version!  Freschetta is available in the freezer section of local grocer’s nationwide.

freschettapizza

Frozen pizza shouldn’t simply taste better. It should be better. So FRESCHETTA® frozen pizzas are made with all-natural cheeses, real meats and crunchy vegetables, all on flavorful sauces. Whether you love your crust soft and thick like our Naturally Rising pizza, crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside like our BRICKOVEN™ pizza or light and crunchy like our Thin & Crispy pizza, there’s a crust for you. No other pizza tastes like FRESCHETTA® because no other pizza is made like FRESCHETTA®.

Visit Freschetta.com also find them on Facebook and Twitter.

Nicole’s take:  We are always busy here as you can imagine with 3 babies and so quick dinners are key for us.  Especially as school starts up again most families are looking for something delicious, fresh and quick! Freschetta pizza is the perfect answer for your dinner dilemma! We tried the 4 cheese medley thin and crispy, the roasted portabella mushroom and spinach brick oven, and the classic supreme naturally rising.  These are restaurant quality pizzas! They are easy to make and the ingredients are so fresh!
