My Fab 5 Moving Tips

There are many reasons for moving, whether it is to be closer to family, a new job or just a change.  Moving into a new home is sometimes exciting and fun, but also requires a lot of energy and hard work. We have been preparing to put our house up for sale and it definitely is a challenging task, especially since there is a lot clutter I didn't even know I had! Here are the 5 moving tips I have come up with since preparing for this move.

Moving Tip #1: De-clutter as soon as you consider moving. It is probably a good idea to do this regardless of whether or not you are moving. :) It's really amazing how nice and refreshing it is once your house is clutter free. Have a garage sale or donate any of the things that you no longer want to keep.

Moving Tip #2: Pre-pack, by packing up anything that you definitely want to keep, but don't use. For me, it was mostly little knick knacks that friends and family had given me through the years. Also craft supplies that I knew I wouldn…

Straight Talk- Saving Money on Your Cell Phone Bill

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

In the past, out of all the bills I was paying each month, my cellular phone bill seemed to be the one that was most wasteful. I didn’t feel as though I was getting much value out of it. With Straight talk, there seems to be more money left over and much better value since their unlimited monthly plans are only $45 per month and include calls, text messaging, picture messaging and web. With that price, you can easily call a friendwithout worrying about how much it will cost. Compared to the $99 per month that I currently pay for the same services with a contract, that is a huge savings!  Also, there aren’t any activation, reactivation or termination fees. With Straight Talk, you can get everything you need.

Photos in a Book

Organizing photos into a book is something that is always on my list of things to do. However, since I have discovered how to make Photo Books online, I have been a little more diligent with getting photos organized. I usually get the photos ready and wait for a photo book deal. This way, I can easily put a photos book together and not have to miss out on a good deal.

Save Time and Money Using CouponChief

When I was a child, I remember sitting at the kitchen table clipping coupons with my mom before going out to the grocery store. Times have changed significantly, but the importance of saving money remains much the same. Nowadays, it is so much easier to find ways to save money, not only at the grocery store, but practically everywhere you shop.

My mom and I still like to find coupons while sitting at the kitchen table, but I now have a little girl of my own and we all search for them online instead of from local flyers. Since I love the convenience of shopping online and I never complete my purchase without looking for a coupon code first, has become my go to website for all things coupon related. It is so easy to navigate through, and there are over 50000 coupons for over 15000 stores. That's a lot of coupons!

From food to clothing, electronics and even postage, the savings are virtually endless. They even have a video to show you how it all works. CouponChief:…
