It’s that time again! Target is having their semi-annual toy clearance. That means tons of toys 70% off! This sale SHOULD be happening this coming Thursday (July 28).

Check out the picture below to see what I got last time. I plan on heading over to see what gifts I can find. It’s a great way to stock up for birthdays, Christmas, and any other thing that pops up. It is often insane. Lots of people with multiple carts full of stuff. But worth it in the end.

We’d love to see pics of your haul and hear about your toy sale

Battat Toys: Let Your Imagination Run Wild!

Posted by on Jul 21, 2016


My kids love to tell me that they are “city kids”.  The fact that they live in suburbia and not some ginormous metropolis does not seem to matter to them one bit. Our city in which we live is most definitely “the big city” they tell me. Of course the only comparison they use is the “country” when we visit grandparents and they visit where mom grew up. Now THAT they tell me…is the country. And you know what? I loved it!

I may not have lived on a farm myself, but there were many cattle ranchers and farms surrounding the beautiful countryside where I grew up. Barns were filled with horses, sheep, and cows. Now I have to actually TAKE my kids to a farm to see farm animals up close. Thank goodness for Battat Toys!

Battat toys collectibles feature exquisite detail and captivating design. Hand painted original characters are available in all your favorite categories: horses, sea life, farm animals, wild animals, goblins, dragons, and warriors with legends to share. We also feature detailed dinosaur models from the Dan LoRusso Collection™

These toys are collectibles! They are nicely made and you can tell that each are hand painted and original. I love that they come in so many different varieties. If your little is more interested in the sea? Dinosaurs? Warriors? Battat toys has em! I was quite impressed with the Terra Wooden Horse Barn, as it reminded me exactly of the barns that surround my childhood home. I was even MORE impressed when my little fell in love and told me she no longer wanted to be princess when she grows up…but a farm girl. That is, until next week.


The quality of these collectibles is very sturdy. They are not cheap looking or cheaply made. Battat toys are meant to last. And last they will! Even my boys, you know, the “city kids” got into living the country life and playing with their sister as she farmed and fed the animals. It’s a great way to start with your littles as they learn animals, animal sounds and even spelling! Take a trip to the country by picking up some Battat toys for your little. It won’t be a baaaad decision I guarantee it!

Desert Star Giveaway

I love to laugh. Like REALLY love to laugh. I love musicals, dancing and funny anticdotes. So when the opportunity came up to see a spoof of some of my favorite shows? Well. Let’s just say I was GLEEFULLY excited. It was going to be ACCA-AWESOME. And it most definitely was!

desert star2

Since 1989, Desert Star Playhouse has built a solid reputation for producing hilarious, family-friendly entertainment. Desert Star produces original musical comedies. We offer outrageous parodies of classic movies, TV show, and Broadway hits, with a melodramatic twist! Each show also features a high-energy variety show we call “The Olio” following the play with more singing, dancing and Desert Star comedy. It’s 2 shows in 1! Audience Interaction. Outrageous Parody. Unpredictable Fun.

I decided to take my daughter who literally watches Pitch Perfect at least once a week to our Desert Star experience. The title got her and we were able to see “Perfect Pitch Despicable Glee!”  I will state it here. Run. Do not walk. Get to your computer or phone and buy Desert Start Theatre tickets. You will NOT be disappointed. The actors are amazing and the comedic timing is great! They interact with the audience and as an audience member you get to BOO for the villan and CHEER for the hero. My daughter loved it.


Set in a western theme the theatre itself looks like you have stepped back in time to watch dinner theater at it’s prime. Even the servers are in costume. The food was great (we had pizza) and the drinks a plenty! She has already asked to go back again. Even if it is to watch what we just saw. Which is exactly part of the fun! You will NEVER see the exact same show twice! Whether it be different actors, a different audience or different impromptu jokes, it will always be a great time! With season tickets also available, it is the gift that will keep you laughing all year long. Get on down to Desert Star Theatre! You will pat yourself on the back that you did.

Top Five Things Couponing is NOT: First Two

Posted by on Jul 7, 2016

5 things couponing is NOT

Here are my tips of the week as featured on Good4Utah today. Today I went over the top two things couponing is not. Make sure to tune in next Thursday for the other three! And check back here every day for all the other great deals you can score.

Plus, make sure to enter to win a $300 espresso and cappuccino maker!


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.

Office Depot Sweet Smarts Collection

Posted by on Jul 7, 2016

Office Depot Gear up for school

I consider myself a good mom. I clothe, feed and shelter my kids. They have chores, boundaries and seem to be doing ok. They know 80’s songs and 90’s fashion…wait. What? Did I say “good” mom? Heck, with the knowledge that I have bestowed on them of the best decades in history, I would say that makes me a RAD mom!

We are still in the throes of summer, but it does not leave my mind that the school year is quickly coming upon us. In fact, nearly 20% of fresh parents, like myself start two months before the first day of school! With this in mind, and the key knowledge of keen fashion sense my girls now bestow, I thought it only fitting they go back to school with some choice school style.

And like totally. Office Depot’s new Sweet Smarts collection has it. DUDE. Do they have it!

Office Depot’s new Sweet Smarts collection, influenced by ‘80s and ‘90s pop culture and designed primarily with K-12 students in mind with cartoon-inspired patterns and bright, neon colors.

The Sweet Smarts collection features cool and exciting gear including notebooks and pencil cases decorated with doughnuts and sprinkles, folders covered in ice cream cones, and rainbow-colored scissors and lunch totes, making them the must-have back-to-school supplies for kids looking to jump into the school year.


GONE are the grody yellow folders that we had as kids. These new styles are all that. I barely had a chance to open the box before my girls were SQUEALING with excitement at the contents. This Sweet Smarts collection was dope. When I suggested we wait to use all of them for school? AS IF! One of my favorite things about the Sweet Smarts collection is you can use them NOW! My girls write in journals over the summer to keep up on their writing and these came in very handy! Notebooks, clips, pens, erasers, even water bottles. The Sweet Smarts collection has it all. Definitely gets props from THIS mom. So this year? My girls will going back to school tight. Yo. Get on board. Get to Office Depot of Office Max to get a hold of your own Sweet Smarts collection word? Peace out!
