House Monkey Review + Free 1 Month Trial

I have just discovered the most amazing app. Usually I am not one to use an app for everything. In fact, I have like 4 apps on my phone, well 5 now that I added the awesome House Monkey app. The name might be a bit silly, but the concept is anything but. It is a household managing app.

"What is a household managing app?" you ask. Well, it is a comprehensive organization super tool. I am the world's worst organizer. I mean it. I am constantly on my last thread of sanity. I can't remember my own name half the time. With House Monkey, I am finally taking control of managing our household.

House Monkey is like a the digital version of a chore chart, to-do-list, event manager and file cabinet all in one. A schedule of household chores, errands, activities and events can be loaded into the app so that everyone in the family can be on the same page at all times. It is such a time saver. Everything runs so much more efficiently, and all the weight is no longer on my shoulders alone.

Now my husband can keep track of school events, dinners with the in-laws, trips to the grocery story, and when it's his turn to take out the trash or sweep the porch. It help me remember what chores that my kids and husband are going to do, so I don't end up doing them myself. 

It also has reminders for home/appliance maintenance like changing the air conditioner filter, cleaning the dishwasher or adding septic tank additive. I can even set rewards and issue "Banana Points" for chores completed. As if everything running smoothly is not reward enough.

It helps all of us plan our schedule, so we never double book. We all have calendar apps, but they are all independent, so we never used to know when someone else in the family already had a commitment. Now we all manage our commitments in the House Monkey app, so we all know when one family member is busy. It makes everything so much easier and avoids having to cancel plans later.

As nice as the household management is, I am just as thrilled to have the scanning capacities. I would use a whole different app for that if I needed to, that's how badly I needed this in my life. With House Monkey you can scan recipients, warranties, contracts and other vital paperwork. You can also store data-heavy videos and photos.

I had so many product warranties and especially user manuals all over the house. I am the type that keeps them for months or years, and ends up getting so fed up with the clutter and throwing them away - right before I need them. It's the same with receipts. I also scan in the grocery lists, so hubby knows exactly what to get without having to remember it or try to use a paper list (that he would lose.) In fact, I lose every list that I make also. It has been a  huge help to me. 

Also, I almost was not able to download the House Money app because my phone has so many photos and videos that I was out of space. I had to delete some. I have since uploaded them all to the House Money app, so now I have tons of space again. Really, House Monkey is taking care of everything.

I am still the world's worst organizer, but my life is so much more efficient now. house Monkey does all the work, and my family gets all the convenience and none of the stress. I am so glad that I found an app that could help me manage our lives in spite of my absentmindedness and lack of any planning skills. House Monkey is awesome.

If this type of household management sounds like something your family could benefit from, you're in luck. You can get a FREE 30 day trial of House Monkey. For more information, and to get a 30-days FREE coupon code, please visit:
You can download the app in the Google Play or Apple App Store.

WWE & Susan G. Komen - Share Your Survivor Story

It's no secret that I love WWE. It wouldn't be a stretch to say that I am obsessed. I love the excitement and action. It's entertaining. However, WWE is so much more than just entertainment. It's more than a show, it is a movement. WWE does so many things for the community outside the ring and arena. They use their fame to make a difference in the world.

One of the many charitable organizations they support is Susan G. Komen. WWE is raising awareness and funds to help find a cure for breast cancer. I am so inspired by their constant efforts. I have supported WWE's Rise Above Cancer moment for years. Their special co-branded merchandise not only raises money for the cause, but also serves as a poster of awareness and support every time I wear it.

I can't wait for the new apparel to be released in October, but right now, I am super excited about another campaign that WWE is working on alongside Susan G. Komen. WWE and Susan G. Komen are hosting a contest to honor breast cancer survivors who are doing MORE in the fight against breast cancer through the Share Your Story Survivor Essay Contest.

You can enter an essay HERE. Three survivors will win an ultimate WWE fan experience at SummerSlam 2016 and will be featured in WWE and Komen public service announcements that may air on TV, online, in WWE venues and on the WWE Network in October 2016. The contest began on May 5th and will run through May 27th.

I am so so inspired by WWE's efforts and by all of the Amazing survivors. I am so proud to be a fan of a company like WWE, who does so much good. From Make A Wish to Be A Star to Hire Heroes and, of course, Susan G. Komen, WWE really uses their resources and fame to make a difference. I don't know how anyone could not be a fan of that.

Saving Is Simpler With Groupon Coupons

Like most everyone, I love to save money. I am not afraid to spend money, but I hate to pay more than I have to. The trouble is, I am busy. I don't have tons of time to collect newspapers and clip coupons and I am not organized enough to keep tons of coupons and remember what I have coupons for. I am certainly not organized enough to scan every local stores' deals and match coupons to each store and visit multiple stores, etc. "Couponing" is not for me.

I do love to use coupons, though, when I am already going to purchase something. I hate having to search to see if there is a coupon for what I need or the store I plan to shop at. That is why I am so happy to have discovered Groupon Coupons. I have already been saving with Groupon for years, but now they can save me money when I go shopping too.

It's so convenient. On Groupon's coupon page you can search for coupons by store or by category. If you just want to save but have nothing particular in mind, you can also browse all the available coupons, but that would take awhile since there are thousands.

I was just shopping for photo gifts for Father's Day and I found lots of great Shutterfly coupons. I also checked out the coupons for Advance Auto Parts. My hubby is going to be a very happy camper this Father's Day, and my bank account is happy too. No overdrafts for me, and I even have a little left over, thanks to the awesome savings I got with Groupon Coupons.

If you are still shopping for Father's Day (or graduation, or any other summer celebration), be sure to check out Groupon Coupons. I am sure you will find savings for the stores you plan to shop at. It only take a minute, and you have nothing to lose but the higher price. If I can do it, anyone can, because I can barely walk and talk at the same time. Let me know what you are shopping for and what awesome deals/coupons you score.

Cush Cushion Review: The World's Most Comfortable Seat Cushion

As you all know, as a blogger, I spend most of my time at a computer, obviously, sitting down. What you may not know is that because of this, I get frequent, excruciating and prolonged back pain. It does not help that I have suffered from severe back pain even since I was a teenager. It also does not help that I have recently gained quite a bit of weight.

All things factored in it is a miracle that I can even stand some days. Lately, it has been getting worse. That is until this past week. This week was different because I just got a Cush Comfort seat cushion. I have owned several seat cushions. In fact, the Cush Comfort one replaced one that I had only used for a few months. It was still in great shape, it simply did not do the job.

The Cush Comfort seat cushion blows all the others out of the water. It is like comparing apples and oranges, they may both be fruits, but they could not be more different. The Cush Comfort first of all, is not just a soft place to sit. It is not just curved or supportive, it is deeply contoured to fit snug against the bottom. It suspends the tailbone, so there is no pressure on the spine. It uses only the highest grade of memory foam with no fillers or chemicals. The Cush Comfort cushion stops the pain cycle within 30 seconds of the time you first sit on it.

It is textured on the bottom, so it does not slip or slide around. That is very important, especially for use on a smooth office chair or in the car, though I mostly use it on the couch, since that is my usual "office". It has a double strong sipper on the durable, washable velour cover. Everything about this cushion screams quality.

I have only been using this Cush Comfort Seat Cushion for about a week, but the way it has helped me is incredible. I have not had to walk around hunched over because it hurts too much to stand u all the way. I have not been brought to tears from the excruciating pain that creams and pills do nothing to help. I have not snapped at my kids because I am in pain and tired (from not sleeping due to pain.) I have gotten more work done in less time, since it is so much easier to concentrate now, and I don't have to take as many breaks from sitting. It is literally changing my life for the better.

Now I just need to get hubby a Cush Comfort seat cushion too. He drives for a living, sitting down for hours at a time, every day. When he is not driving, he is lifting, thousands of tons a day. Usually around 55 tons per day. That is a lot of bending and lifting. He needs all the back help he can get. I let him borrow my Cush Comfort for one day, just to see if it helped, and he said it made a huge difference, and he was actually in a good mood when he got home from work, after a 16 hour day. That says it all.

Anyone that has back pain, or is at risk of back injury needs to get a Cush Comfort seat cushion. It is honestly one of the most important items I own. I can't imagine going back to life without it. If you do want to buy a Cuch Comfort cushion you can Save 10% Off Cush Cushion The World's Most Comfortable Seat Cushion use code: "clubcush" HERE. There is a Lifetime 100% money back guarantee, so you have nothing to lose but the pain.
