Your Strong Tower, Coupon Friendly, Christine Luken – Financial Lifeguard, and a great group of bloggers (including me!) are helping you achieve your financial New Year’s resolutions with this giveaway for a Financial Peace University kit ($109 value) sponsored by! Christine Luken, a Dave Ramsey Certified Financial Counselor, knows how stressful it can be when families are saddled with too much debt and don’t have enough savings. Financial Peace University is taught in churches across America and the average couple going through the class saves an average of $2,700 and pays off $5,300 in debt in just ninety days! 

One lucky fan will win the Financial Peace University kit and be able to plug into a local class for free! 

While I personally have zero experience with Dave's plan for Financial Peace, I do know that it has helped many people.  I am a BIG fan of not spending money that you don't have, and I am blessed that my husband also has a financially responsible outlook on life.  (We're both pretty frugal people, but he is more so!)  

Here’s what Dave Ramsey says about this life-changing course:

“We all need a plan for our money. Financial Peace University (FPU) is that plan! It teaches God's ways of handling money. Through video teaching, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you've dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more!”

Our first winner will score a $25 Subway gift card, plus an Embroidered Leaf-Motif Overlay tablecloth in their choice of colors. 

Our second winner will receive a $25 Trader Joe’s gift card, plus a Paradise Forest Taffeta Table Overlay in their choice of colors. 

Our third prize winner will receive a $25 Jamba Juice gift card and their choice of colors for a Dual-Tone Damask Flocking Overlay.

Whether you are planning a Super Bowl shindig, a Valentine’s Day party, or even a spring wedding, has a vast selection of colorful fabrics for all your linen needs. If you need chair covers, tablecloths, runners, sashes or simply table napkins, has you covered at fantastic prices. They also carry other great party supplies such as balloons, LEDs, and cake stands to make all of your winter and spring entertaining a breeze.

Be Carton Smart and Eat Yummy Food

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Carton Smart for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
A little while ago Carton Smart sent me three of their products to try.  I received Pumpkin Puree, Chicken Stock, and Cranberry Sauce.
 photo 795e421d-1ec8-414e-b1b8-dde8f5f23ded_zps62983f0a.jpg
I am a pretty big crock-pot fan!  (I am currently an even bigger fan because I have had a difficult time looking at various foods in the prepping stages this pregnancy (especially meats!).  My wonderful husband can throw everything together in the crock-pot and still make it to work!)  This Crock-Pot White Chicken Chili Recipe would be a perfect use of the Chicken Stock!

 photo 62adf36b-e1dc-4d93-98c1-aa80d97a468d_zps600d562e.jpg

We are big fans of Cranberry Sauce in this family!  We tend to eat it straight--no need to make it into something fancy when it's so awesome on its own, however, I think we might have to give this Cranberry Swirl Coffee Cake a whirl sometime.  

 photo d1d52bb8-c150-4f19-9a7c-b8c9ab3c8df3_zpsac6b75dd.jpg

I've only really discovered how delicious and versatile Pureed Pumpkin is recently.  I shared a delicious Pumpkin Cheesecake recipe, which you really should try, over at The Philosopher's Wife.  Here's a picture of the very last piece of cheesecake that we had (it was so good that we almost ate the whole thing without taking a picture!):

Now, you might be wondering "Why do I care about this carton thing"?  That's a great question! Here are some reasons:

• Cartons use 1/3 of the packaging compared to cans (Yippee for less trash!)
• The cartons are easy to store by not wasting precious pantry space.
• The unique packaging process preserves the flavor (and nutrients!) without preservatives.
• The cartons are easy to recycle.

• Cartons are even reclosable, eliminating the need for extra plastic or dish-washing  
• Tetra Pak® cartons are mostly made from a renewable resource

Boba 4G Baby Carrier Giveaway (Ends 1/27) US

boba giveaway event

Hosted by: Easy Green Mama & Co-hosted by: Mommy Knows What's Best
Sponsored by: Boba

The Boba 4G Carrier makes babywearing more convenient, comfortable, and ergonomically correct than ever before. It grows with your child, thanks to an integrated infant insert, detachable foot straps, and 10 other bonus features. Now parents and kids of all shapes and sizes can explore the world—together!

For those of you who don't know, I am due with a little boy in March! I am very much looking forward to his arrival.  (Both, because of course it will be wonderful to meet him and hopefully his arrival will make this awful morning sickness go away!)  After reading lots of different articles on the pros of baby-wearing I am hoping to be able to wear "Porcupine" as much as possible.  With Catherine, who is currently three, I had a Snuggi and a Baby Bjorn, but those were only so-so in my opinion.  (A good friend later found me a Beco Gemini Baby Carrier, which I love, but that was well beyond the infant stage.)

Easy Green Mama recently had the opportunity to review the Boba 4G Baby Carrier. This is a carrier that I really would love to try! You can check out Easy Green Mama's Review {Here}.

Easy Green Mama Boba 4G Review

  Boba designs thoughtfully crafted products for active parents who want the time and freedom to create a real and caring bond with their child, while living life to the fullest.
