Save, Give and Spend - Help iVillage Raise $5000

Since we are in the midst of the holiday season, I wanted to write a post about saving, giving and spending, in respect to our children. It is so important to instill in your child the importantce of not only saving but also giving to those who are less fortunate than ourselves.

On the otherhand, as a parent, it is just as important to make sure your child understands that if they work hard at what they do, especially when they grow older and have a job, they will be rewarded monetarily. That reward should not necessarily be tucked away until they get so old that they cannot enjoy it. Spending portions of their hard earned money on themselves and their family is ok as long as the proportions are balanced based on their lifestyle.

Only you and your family can properly decide and set the goals/limits as to what your child should spend, save and give to charity.

Make your child get involved and want to give by letting them research and choose both local and international charities. It will make them feel more active and involved in the process.

Go to iVillage so you can learn how to have 'the talk' with your child about financial responsibility! The website is located here: visit The website contains tips & tools from iVillage and Pass from American Express.

Also, check out the iVillage Facebook App! Click on the Badge on iVillage's Facebook page to share the page with your facebook friends. By doing so, iVillage will donate $1 to Junior Achievement for every Facebook Share! With the goal of raising $5,000! The app can be found here on facebook:

Gifts For Everyone: TuneUp Utilities 2011 *Giveaway* (12/22)

My computer is a disaster. It's slow. It has links that go no where. It has icons that are old. When I saw the contest by A Wrestling Addicted Mommy for TuneUp Utilities PC Optimization Software I knew I had to enter!

A Wrestling Addicted Mommy indicates on her blog that "...TuneUp Utilities 2011 keeps my computer running great, free from errors, and allows me to see how I can optimize my system to keep it running faster. The TuneUp Program Deactivator allows you to turn off unused programs completely to avoid the loss of PC performance until they’re needed, the Turbo Mode allows you to increase your PC speed by shutting down more than 70 background processes, and the Live Optimization feature prevents background programs from using up too much of the PC’s resources.

TuneUp Utilities 2011 is super easy to install and use, just about anyone can follow the directions. This is a great program to help you keep your computer in tip top shape, clean and ready to roll when you need to use it, I couldn’t recommend another program more. I’ve installed it to my parents computer and they use it with ease, I recommend it to just about everyone I know."

Pretty good review right? I am trying the 15 day free trial but also entering this contest because I know its something I need desperately!

Tortuga Gourmet Rum Company Cake Review and Giveaway - Ends 12/14

I found Little Yaya's Blog after seeing it written about on Survey Junkie's Blog, which I check often for reviews and giveaways for items I might need or like.

When I noticed today that Little Yaya was doing a giveaway for the Tortuga Rum Company, I quickly entered! I discovered that company long ago when traveling in the Caribbean and I love their rums ans cakes.

I always taste a bunch of samples when ever I am in Bermuda at the glass factory. I also am able to sometimes taste samples when I go on a cruise. They usually sell the rum cakes in the gift shops on the ships I cruise on. I never can afford to buy them so this giveaway was right up my alley as the cakes are so good. The flavors are so rich and incredible and like Yaya says in her review, the cakes are very moist!

The giveaway is for a 33 oz cake in any flavor so this is one to enter right away!
