5 Quick and Easy Shopping Tips for the Parent On The Go

Let's face it, shopping can be a real chore.  There are some of us who actually enjoy spending time cruising up and down the aisles of the supermarket and reading labels.  But, honestly, most of us just don't have the time to do that.
I have scoured the internet looking for ways to help make shopping chores easier and less tedious.  I can't control the checkout lines, but I can sure help with the process of getting to them.
Here are some smart tips that I found.
If you plan your meals ahead of time, you will know exactly what ingredients you will need to shop for.  This will save you money in the long run.  How many times have you purchased and thrown out expired foods?  Having a meal plan will help cut back on wasted money.

Lists, although we don't always stick them, are convenient because they remind us of things we need.  If you don't have time to sit and write a list, make one on your phone in the notes section.  I am alway…

Valentine's Day Gift for the Craft Beer Lover

Surprise your beer loving Valentine with a subscription to the The Original Craft Beer Club!

My husband and son both really enjoy craft beers.  They love to visit microbreweries when we are on vacation, and like to try new and interesting beer flavors. This is a gift that I know they will both enjoy.

Craft beers are really popular right now and there are so many out there.  The Original Craft Beer Club allows the recipient to try different beers every month from different breweries from different regions.  The beer styles range from pale ales to stouts and everything in between.  It is a nice way to discover new beers without having to purchase an entire 6 pack.  Who knows, maybe they will find a brand new favorite!

Here is a list of all of the styles you can expect to try, depending on the length of your membership.

My son really enjoys sour, Belgian triple ales and American Dark Wheat varie…

The History of Valentine's Day

Valentine's day is a day of celebrating the one you love.  It falls on February 14th of each year.  More than 62% of Americans celebrate Valentine's day.

I was curious of the origins of this especially romantic day and decided to do a little research.
Valentine's day itself is named for a Christian martyr, Saint Valentinus (meaning worthy, strong or powerful), who was martyred on February 14 and dates all the way back to the 5th Century.  He died around 270 AD.  He is the patron saint of lovers, beekeepers and epilepsy. As well as the plague, travel, fainting, couples and happy marriages. 

The skull of St. Valentus,which is adorned with flowers, can be found on display in the Basilica of Santa Maria in Cosmedin, Rome.  Other bits of his skeleton are on display in Czech Republic, Scotland, Ireland, England and France.

Some believe that Valentine's day was created by a midieval English poet by the name of Geoffrey Chaucer.  (photo credit: Wikipedia)

He wrote in 1375 a work by…
