Freebies For New and Expecting Moms

Are you pregnant? 
Did you know you could earn free things/coupons/deals?

I'm all about saving money and finding the best deals and let's face it, having a child is going to increase your expenses so why not start looking at how to save money now?

Here's what you do:

Sign up with Zola to create a registry.
It's not just for weddings, plenty of people use zola for baby registries. Out of all the registries, I chose zola because it was easy for me to add things from other sites. For every friend who creates a registry using my link, they'll give us both $50 to spend on Zola


NEXT, Sign up with Target registries to get a bunch of free samples and coupons!
(here's my FB post I wrote when I got mine!)

It doesn't have to be a registry with a lot of thought, just make it look like it's completed by throwing things up there and you should qualify for your welcome bag! 


If you are lucky enough to qualify for WIC, you must know that you will still have to buy formula out of pocket.

If you choose to breast feed, good for you! I would still sign up for these things JUST IN CASE.
I would rather be prepared than need something last minute and stress. So sign up for this and start getting coupons in the mail. Even if you choose not to use these, you could help someone else who has to pay out of pocket.


Join these three sites for savings on diapers and wipes:




I have benefited more from the pampers site than the other two.


Join the Pampers Gifts to Grow program
Every time you buy a box of Pampers, look for the code inside the box and enter it into the website. Those points can be saved up and later redeemed for diapers, baby food, and toys.


Sign up for the StrongMoms program.
Similac offers all kinds of goodies when you sign up for its StrongMoms program.


FREE Magazine
Sign up for a free monthly subscription of American Baby magazine! Get parenting and pregnancy tips shipped right to your door. No shipping fees or obligations to purchase.


Hope you enjoy these freebies! Feel free to share this page with new and expecting moms! 


Top Places To Visit In Maine

Visiting Maine anytime soon and looking for things to do?

I know there's a lot of history here I just don't know a lot of it. It's sad I've lived in Southern Maine all of my life and have never really visited shops on the coast or anything like that.
I started asking around for ideas and received enough input to start a good list, adding details as I researched.
I hope you enjoy checking these places out and don't forget to support each one by liking their facebook pages provided!

In Case You Wanted To Know...

First of all, let me say that when I look at my life as a whole, I am happy. I have a very supportive husband, a beautiful baby girl, and great family and friends. I know I have many things to be thankful for and I am aware that there are others out there who have it worse than I do. When I think about all of that, it makes me happy and thankful. I also feel like you should be happy with yourself, but when I think about myself, it’s a very different story. 

Top Reasons You May Not Be Getting the Job

The process of job hunting is tough. You fill out bunches of applications, send your resume, even land a couple interviews, but with no success. You may also feel like you’re getting the run-around.

Top Ten Must Haves for Babies under a year old

When I was a soon to be mom, I remember wondering what the baby would need for the first year and not knowing where to start. It was so overwhelming when the registries would try to "help" by suggesting the bunches of things you will "need", when in all reality, we didn't use half of their suggestions. So here is my list of the top things you will want to add to your registry!

My Email to Southern Maine Healthcare About My Stay (A Birth Story)

To Whom It May Concern,
  I wanted to leave feedback on my recent birthing experience from June 7th-12th. I hope this finds the right department. The customer cards were too small.

When Is It OK to Let Go Of Toxic People?

You ever hear of the saying "Misery Loves Company"? That couldn't be more true. It feels like a constant battle to try and surround myself with happy people. Especially in this day and age, with the world the way it is, and how difficult it is to live these days, even the happiest people have their days. But what about those people that have "those days" every day? They make no attempt to try and be happy and you find them constantly bringing you down, you start to question your own thoughts and behaviors?

When is it ok to ween out those people in my life that exhibit toxic behavior?
