Fall Inspiration With Miracle-Gro

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

In the past, I have always had a vegetable garden during the summer. When we moved into this apartment, having a garden was no longer an option.  I still love plants, and since I do not have a yard to plant vegetables and flowers in, I want to make some platers to put out on my porch.  The good thing about that is that now that it is geting coller, I can bing them inside until the weather warms up again.

My problem is that whenever I plant in planters, my plants never do well.  Thanks to the Gardenieres, I have learned how to plant properly.  This video was especially helpful.

My biggest problem was that I always used dirt, instead of a potting mix.  I had no idea that there was a difference.  I learned from the video that potting mix is especially formulated to help potted plants grow to their ful potential.  I also never used planters that have holes in the bottom.  In fact, several of my house plants are in containers that have no drainage holes.  Now I know why they don't do well.  


Miracle-Gro Potting Mix feeds plants for up to six months because it contains Miracle-Gro Continuous Release Plant Food, and it's rich, organic materials help improve drainage and air flow.  I have used Miracle-Gro's Expand and Gro in the past, and I loved it.  So did my African Violets! 

You can talk to fellow gardeners and share your ideas for the Fall with them by liking the Miracle-Gro Facebook page.  You can also find tons of ideas for your Fall gardens by watching all the Gardenieres videos. I browsed through a few of them, and I can not tell you how badly I wish I had a yard to plant flowers and bushes in.

Weekends Off

I am very friendly with some of my customers.  There is this one place I deliver mail to every day, and I love the secretary at the front desk.  She is so funny!  She always asks me on Friday what my plans are for the weekend, and I always tell her that I plan on relaxing and not doing much of anything.  Then I ask her which football games she will be watching on Sunday.  She is a huge football fan, and she would love some pittsburgh steelers tickets , or invesco field tickets.  Just the other day we were talking about how much she loves to travel, so she would probably love getting her hands on some dallas cowboys tickets too.  I, personally, don't care for football.  Come Sunday, I will be curled up on the couch catching up on the last season of Grey's Anatomy.

Buffalo Wild Wings And Football - A Great Combination

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Buffalo Wild Wings for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Last year, a new restaurant opened in my town called Buffalo Wild Wings.  My boss was telling me how good the food is, and I believe him because the parking lot is always full of cars, especially when there is a football game on television.  I am not that big of a football fan, but I imagine that gathering somewhere to enjoy the game and good food has it's benefits.


My kids love eating out, and I love eating out with them, because that means I don't have to cook. My kids are kind of picky eaters, and most night I find myself preparing different things for each of them.  It's hard making a meal that they will all eat. I can't imagne having a house full of people over for the big game and having to prepare all the food and make sure that everyone is happy and that they have everything they need.  Why not leave it to the professionals?  The next time there is a game on, load up the husband and kids and Protect the football. Get to B-Dubs and let the servers cater to your every need while you relax with your family and watch the game on one of their big screen televisions.  I took a peek at their menu online, and there is something for everyone, even the pickiest of kids.  I may not be a fan of football, but I am a fan of good food, so I mayh just head to Buffalo Wild Wings simply to enjoy the food. Like I said, my boss said it's amazing.

Shop Dollar General For Back To School Supplies

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dollar General for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have three kids who are going back to school in a little over a week.  I have gotten Brandi a few things off of her  back to school supply list, but I still have so much left to get for not only her, but Ryan and Kasi as well.  I wish they only needed notebooks and pencils, but their lists are outrageous.  Kasi is taking an art class that requires her to have special pencils and sketch pads, and Ryan needs a calculator for math. These things alone are going to cost me a smal fortune.


It helps that I have a Dollar General right up the street where I can get the majority of their school supplies at great prices.  All of my kids need binders and notebook papaer, and so far, Dollar General has the best price on both of those things.  If you have a mobuile phone (and really, who doesn't these days?) you can use this QR code to save even more money.  


You can also text "bts" to 34898 to take advantage of Back to School Saving from Dollar General. I know from experience that Dollar General is a great place to shop.  I get all my cleaning supplies from there, which can come in handy for those students who are moving back into a dorm room soon.  I also buy my toilet paper from there.  I don't see spending money on the name brand toilet paper when their store brand works just as well.  In fact, I think it is softer than the name brand.

My point is, no matter what you are looking for, you ca probably find it at Dollar General at a great price.

I Love BOGO Deals!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Famous Footwear for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am all about saving money, which is something I am sure I have said over and over agin the last couple of years.  As a mom of three kids, this time of year saving money is even more important to me.  You see, it's back to school time (YAY!) and my kids need all kinds of supplies before the first day arrives in just two short weeks.

Right now, I can shop for their shoes at Famous Footwear and take advantage use their BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon.  The coupon is good from now until August 18th, and I wish I had the money to go shopping this weekend, because our state is doing their tax free weekend this weekend, and I could save even more money.  But I don't have the money to shop this weekend, so I plan on signing up for Famous Footwear's FREE rewards program so that I can save 20% instead of 15% off my total bill.  Signing up will also earn me 1 point for every dollar I spend, which I can accumulate over the year to get up to $100 in certificates.  Now that is pretty awesome! Being a rewards customer also gets me inside deals and perks, and I love me some perks!


When I finally do take my kids shoe shopping, I don't have to worry about leaving the store disappointed.  With hundreds of brand name shoes and styles, the kids are sure to find something they love.  The best part is, if they find a shoe they like and the store doesn't have it in their size, they can have it delivered to me at home! I even have the option of shopping online at and having what I buy shipped to the store of my choice.  

All I know is that Famous Footwear makes back to school shoe shopping easy!
