Where Do You Look For Deals Now That Black Friday is Over?

Posted by on Nov 27, 2017

Black Friday is over. Cyber Monday is just about finished. But you still have shopping to do! Where do you go for deals now?

It’s easier than you think. If I’m honest, I bought one thing on Black Friday. One. Want to know what it was? Socks. I got half price socks for my whole family at Smith’s Marketplace for half price. That just isn’t where I shop anymore. So here are the places I plan on looking to save some moolah now.

Amazon: This is BY FAR where I do the majority of my shopping. They consistently have the best prices and I can shop in my pj’s. Win!

Smith’s: This one might seem odd to you, but you’d be surprised how many deals you can get here. Save on groceries and you’ll have more for gifts. They are doing 25 Days of Merry Deals right now and you will save on all sorts of things. Even games and toys!

Movie Theaters: The Cinemark refillable buckets are my favorite gift to give. They are fairly inexpensive, but then can be used all year round for the person who gets them. It’s the gift that keeps on giving! These often sell out so you won’t want to wait to buy yours.

Facebook: I know it sounds weird, but FB ads knows what they are doing. I’ve found some awesome things while just scrolling through my feed. And there is usually a coupon code. I discovered Big Life Journals on FB and it is freaking awesome! Not only is there a HUGE sale right now, I’m also giving one away!

Shop Local! I guarantee you have many family and friends who have items to sell that help them afford their own Christmas. Most of those will be having some kind of sale right now.

I found Rise & Shine Cosmetics through a friend and absolutely LOVE my permanent eyeliner and eyebrows. PLUS, get 50% off when you mention Mamas on a Dime!

Cubbie Lee Toys: Make Memories That Last!

Posted by on Nov 20, 2017

You know those toys that you know are going to last forever? The ones that spark the imagination AND hold up to wear and tear? Yeah, these are those toys. I LOVE Cubbie Lee Toys! These toys are gorgeous and definitely high quality!

Each of the pieces we received were super easy to put together (if any assembly was required at all). The desserts & stands are adorable, well painted, and sturdy for years of fun to come. I love the variety and bright colors, the details are simple and pleasing to the eye, and the desserts are the perfect size for small hands to hold.

These are the toys my daughter gravitates to day after day. Because the possibilities are endless. There are no batteries to replace, no switches to turn on, she is only limited by her imagination. Which means I win too. Because imagination? Definitely not used enough anymore. I couldn’t be happier with these lovely toys. And I know you will love them too!


When Cubbie Lee’s founders, Zach and Sarah Lee, had their first child, they quickly became aware of how difficult it was to get good, quality toys that were affordable.

Rather than filling the nursery with flashy, plastic toys that broke easily, they wanted toys that would last. They wanted toys that provided both educational value and heaps of fun for their little one (and their other two children that soon followed!).

It was on one of these searches that Zach and Sarah decided to take matters into their own hands, and the Cubbie Lee Toy Company was born (the name comes from their much loved family dog). Today, Zach and Sarah work with a team of toy-lovers, to bring the finest wooden toys to parents around the US.

I struggle every year with finding gifts for my kids that aren’t going to be discarded in two minutes AND that are meaningful. That’s why I was so freaking excited to find Big Life Journal. It is not only well made and beautiful, I know it’s going to be the gift that keeps on giving. The memories we make/write down in this book are going to be something we keep forever.

The pictures are gorgeous, the pages thought provoking, and the lessons are invaluable. I can’t sing it’s praises enough!

Rowling, Walt Disney, and others. Our guided children’s journal is broken down into 26 weeks with each week covering a new theme or topic including: Make a Difference in the World, Dream Big, Follow Your Heart, You Are Not What You Have, Believe in Yourself, Take Action, Be Persistent, Effort is Key, Love Learning, Be Mindful, Be Grateful, Failure is Learning, Be Positive. The Big Life Journal lets children learn at their own pace in an exciting and organized way.
