Gululu Interactive Water Tracker for Kids Now on Amazon

Meet Gululu: The interactive bottle that encourages kids to drink water through a friend, tamagucci-like pet. Gululu gives parents peace of mind as they can measure their kids' water intake.

When Dexter was younger he was so active that I would forget to make him drink throughout the day. His lips became dry and he would end up very thirsty at night before bed (once he was slowed down for the day and thinking about it!) So I created the "water challenge" where I would fill up a small and a large glass of water. I would yell "Water Challenge!!!" and he would come and "race" me to see who could finish their water first. It was always a fun little game between the two of us but boy, I am sure he would have loved Gululu so much more!!

Gululu valuesHealthy kids, (developing water drinking habits), 
Fun (through befriending with the pet), 
Familyfriendship (the bottle bonds kids and parents together, and kids to pet, and kids to other kids that own Gululu as the pets in 2 bottles can join and play if 2 bottles are shaken together)

searchRx Saves you Time and Money

Lack prescription insurance coverage? Or feel like you're underinsured? You're not alone. Prescriptions don't have to cost you an arm and a leg, thanks to a new app I discovered; SearchRx.

I recently learned about searchRx where they take all of that guesswork out of filling a prescription. Download the app and you're all set. Once you get a prescription, type it in to your SearchRx app and it will not only tell you the price of the script before you get to the pharmacy, it will tell you the cheapest place near you to fill it. Just present your SearchRx coupon to your pharmacist upon check out to receive the price on the app. Best of all, its FREE! Yes, thats right. And since searchRx isn't an insurance company, there are no fees or deductibles to be met either. SearchRx can't be used with insurance, but can be used instead of insurance (and sometimes it'll be cheaper than your insurance price!)

Do yourself and your loved ones a favor and tell them all about searchRx. I know that they will thank you when they see how easy it is so save time and money with searchRx! I didn't hesitate to share searchRx with my aging parents and inlaws. So what are you waiting for? Download the app today. Available on Google Play and iTunes

How much time and money are you going to save in 2017? Chances are a lot when you choose searchRx to help!

4 Tips to Keeping Your Home Safe During Holiday Travel

Do You Like to Be Surprised or Can You Not Wait? Surprise with ANKER

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of the Anker and The Women Bloggers. While I was compensated for this post, all thoughts and opinions are my own. #AnkerLove

There are two distinct people in this world; those that love to be surprised and those who can't wait to save their lives. I happen to fall into the love surprises category and my husband just loves to open anything right away. This poses a HUGE problem come Christmas or any other gift giving holiday.

If Jason knows that a gift was shipped to the house for him and he has to wait for it, he badgers me relentlessly until I give in and give it to him. That is most annoying for me because I love knowing there is something for me to look forward to. Like, come Christmas when we visit his parent's house and I have a pile of presents to open, I would rather open one-at-a-time all day so I can savor them. Weirdo, I know. Are you like me or more like Jason?

Jason is super into technology and dare I say that he knows everything about anything when it comes to my iPhone, iPad, MacBook, iMac etc. He knows how important it is to both of us to be connected and how nearly impossible it is to do that when your battery is low. Nothing gives me more anxiety than looking at my phone and seeing it has any less than 50% battery. Well, I hate it less than 75% really but that just sounds neurotic!

For quite some time now I have trusted a company called ANKER with charging my devices at home. They make the best quality wall chargers that allow my whole family to charge their devices at the same time. Up until recently, ANKER products were only available through Amazon, which is awesome, but not for someone like me who has to hide last-minute gifts from nosey husbands! You can now buy your favorite ANKER products at Walmart! WOOT! Who doesn't have a Walmart close by?

It has taken me years to learn not to buy anything for him prior to Christmas because he will "accidentally" find it. Lucky for me, Walmart is close and has everything that I need to make his holiday special. 

If you are looking for the perfect gift for your husband, college-aged child or anyone else who, like me, is terrified of losing power to their phone, let ANKER give you peace of mind with their incredibly reliable PowerCore 10000 Portable Charger powered with Quick Charge™ technology! With a price of $23.99 its an incredible buy for anyone on your list. After all, you can't put a price on peace of mind, can you?

Save Time with ANKER

Who is the hard-to-shop-for person on your list? I guarantee that if you head to Walmart, ANKER will take care of the rest.

Voice of Play--Get Outside Every Day for #YearRoundPlay

The post is brought to you by Activate by Bloglovin and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.
Powered By:

All year long, as a family, we strive to play outside for a minimum of an hour a day. Sometimes that is difficult in the winter when temperatures are known to dip below zero here in Michigan but even then we get out when the weather permits. The boys love being at the beach, camping, fishing and anything that involves getting dirty! The especially love climbing our century-old maple trees, running through the orchards and riding their bikes up the dirt paths around our house.

Not only is outdoor play important for the boys' physical health, it also helps them mentally focus, stay aware and sleep better. I can totally tell when they were forced to have indoor recess or when they haven't gotten any exercise that day. They just seem cranky!

I especially love when Daddy can take some time off from work (or on the weekends) and join us for outings where the boys can learn how to shoot BB guns and archery. Of course, I could take them alone for that but lets face it, I am not a very good shot! 

Being a Mom of boys has its challenges but I wouldn't trade those smelly, dirty, crazy kids for anything. There is nothing quite like gardening and turning over to see a mound of worms carefully being dug up by the kids for "fishing" or "composting" projects that they like to take on. Oliver loves being outside so much in fact that for his 4th birthday we bought him a Coleman folding shovel so he could get his dig on at a moment's notice.

What are some of your kids' favorite things to do outside and away from electronics?

Winter is coming... or should I say it's already here? 
But there's really no reason to be afraid of the shorter days and colder nights. Fresh snowfall, wind-chilled cheeks, and abundant layers of clothing are a natural part of winter. With at least six months of winter per year, the countries of the North embrace the cold months with enthusiasm—and they could teach us a thing or two about surviving winter. 
I recently partnered with Kungs, a Finnish producer of premium snow brushes and ice scrapers that are tested in the harshest Arctic conditions. Together we are helping spread the word on the exciting launch of these new products in the U.S. just in time for winter.
Made in a country with some of the severest winters on the planet, Kungs products combine Scandinavian design and ergonomics with the innovation, durability, and multi-functionality to handle anything winter throws at drivers.
Some quick facts about what separates Kungs snow brushes and ice scrapers from the alternatives:

  • Kungs is the market leader in Northern Europe for winter car care accessories.
  • Kungs products are designed, tested, and manufactured in extreme Finnish weather conditions—including testing in sub-zero temperatures and UV radiation!
  • All Kungs products come with a three-year warranty (which is unheard of in this category).
  • Kungs is environmentally friendly—using up to 17 different recycling methods for all waste generated during production. (This is so surprise, since Finland has been recognized as the greenest country in the world.) 
  • Kungs products are PVC-free and made of 100% polycarbonate.  
  • Year after year, Kungs has won awards in third-party tests across Europe (including most recently in Germany).

Many of us complain about winter and wish it would end sooner. But as the folks in Northern Europe know better than any of us, winter is a special season that can be thoroughly enjoyed—if you make the appropriate preparations. With my Kungs snow brushes and ice scrapers—and multiple layers of clothing—I'm ready for an adventurous winter on the road!


What does Super Savvy Mommy think?
I was really impressed with my Kungs brushes and scrapers. Living in Michigan, we tend to get a lot of snow. There is nothing that I hate more than to spend money on snow brushes over and over because they broke or fell apart. I can tell that Kungs were meant to last! 

I have tried telescopic brushes before and they were very poorly made--this Kungs brush is not only meant to last but it has my husband super jealous and that speaks volumes. I mean, who gets jealous over a snow brush?!

We give these Kungs brushes and scrapers 5 out of 5 stars!
