Get a Better Nights Sleep: Find the Right Pillow

Posted by on Mar 2, 2015

Get a better nights sleep!

This is the second post in my series devoted to helping you and your children get a better night’s sleep. I’m pretty excited for this series and hope you will love reading it as much as I have enjoyed researching it.

And even better? There will be a HUGE giveaway at the end of the series.

Do you have a favorite pillow? Let me know about it in the comments below! Hint: this will get you an extra entry when the giveaway goes live.

As someone who has an on again off again relationship with sleep I know just how important it is to be comfortable. And being comfortable in bed starts with finding the right pillow. There are so many options out there it’s hard to figure out the right fit for you. Here are a few tips to help you get started.

  1. Support: Make sure your pillow has the right support for you. If you sleep on your back, make sure you get a fluffier pillow that lifts your head and chin, which can help with breathing and snoring. If you sleep on your side, you will want something a little more firm. No matter what your sleeping style, test out your pillow before you buy it.
  2. Material: There are a billion different types of materials out there for pillows. Memory foam is great for those with allergies because they will not absorb dust and other particles like regular pillow materials. (This is my personal favorite.) Natural filling (i.e. goose down) is super soft and very durable, but it can be pretty costly.
  3. Age: Using the same pillow you used as a kid? It’s time to get a new one! The shelf life of your average pillow is 4-5 years. So if you have owned yours for longer it’s time to go shopping.

When my kids were ready for a pillow I just grabbed the cheapest one at the store and called it good. Turns out, I wasn’t doing them any favors. My friend, Hillary, let me know about the elo pillow and it is awesome!!

Elo pillow

So why is the elo pillow so awesome? Of course I’m going to tell you!

It’s so much more than a pillow! Sure, it’s a pillow (and a really comfortable one), but it’s also a white noise machine, a story playback device, and a make your kids want to stay in bed-o-matic.

So here’s how it works: you load stories onto elo (you can completely customize this to your child’s age and interests) and it plays those stories for your for your child at bedtime. But the stories only play if your child’s head is on the pillow. If they lift their head up elo gently reminds them to put their head down so they can finish the story.

My boys (ages 5 and 8) absolutely LOVE elo! While they don’t ask to go to bed early, they are excited when it IS time for bed. And in the month or so since we have started using elo I have already noticed there are less “I need a drink of water” moments and they are falling asleep quicker.

how elo works

I do wish that more books were included in the purchase price. That’s the only drawback I have found. It only comes with one book and each book after that is $6.99. So keep that in mind when you snag your pillow.

No one can decide which pillow is right for you. My husband is perfectly fine with the cheapest pillow out there. I, however, like something with a little more substance. I have a Sleep Number pillow and it is amazing! It was worth investing a bit for me to help my overall sleep. I have the Sleep Number CoolFit Contour Pillow and it has changed my sleep so much.

The elo pillow is $149 and it’s worth every single penny. Read four reasons why the elo pillow is worth the price tag. Plus, I will be giving one away at the end of this series. Squee!!

Top Five Things Couponing is NOT

Posted by on Feb 26, 2015

5 things couponing is NOT

There are so many myths out there about couponing. Hopefully this helps put some of those to rest. So here are my top five things couponing is not.

  1. Couponing does NOT cost a lot to get started! I get asked all the time how much money is needed to get started. The answer is a huge NONE! You can get started with zero out of pocket. Or, if you are ready to jump in with both feet you can subscribe to the newspaper. Which is crazy cheap right now.
    1. You can get the Deseret News and/or Salt Lake Tribune (Sunday only subscription) for an amazing price! How amazing? Right now it’s only $20 per year! That’s only 38¢ per issue!! If you’d like to subscribe just click this newspaper order form and fill out the info. It’s as easy as that.
  2. It does NOT need to be extreme couponing! This is not doomsday prep people. Buy what your family will use for three or four months and call it good. There is no need to stock up for the zombie apocalypse.
  3. Couponing is NOT buying stuff you won’t use. Just because it’s a good deal doesn’t mean you need to hurry and buy it. This is a lesson I had to learn for myself. If mayo is on sale with a coupon and you can get it for 3¢ a bottle, but you hate mayo (me!) then don’t buy it.
  4. It is NOT a full time job! There are people out there who will tell you couponing will take hours and hours of your time. This is absolutely not the case. I am a mom of 3 kids and I don’t have hours of time to invest in it. And neither do you. I spend about half an hour a week on couponing. That’s it!
  5. Couponing does NOT require you to run around to 50 stores every week. While I have no doubt that you could save a ton of money by getting all of the deals at every single store each week, it’s just not realistic. So choose one store to visit each week and call it good.

Register for the coupon class on March 3 and you can learn even more.
