The moon belongs to everyone, the best things in life are free“, sang Frank Sinatra (among many others) and that’s fantastic!  However, it’s very hard to wrap and very difficult to fit under a Christmas tree.  And so it goes, the search for the perfect gift. If your gift-giving list is long, I’ve discovered a great way to save on everything from toys, clothing, appliances – you name it!  It’s Groupon Coupons. Do you know about this? I didn’t! I’m so happy to learn about it, particularly for this time of year. Let’s check it out!

Something that most of us don’t think of, until something falls apart, is home maintenance.

No Need To Pay Full Price When You Use Groupon

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

 

makeup

There’s no reason to pay full-price for your personal care and upkeep when you use Health, Beauty & Wellness Groupons!  As a matter of fact, I found my current hairstylist through Groupon and… due to my loyalty, he has kept my rate the same.  (It helped that I’ve sent a few friends his way toowink.)

Just about every personal care service is listed at Groupon.  You can find health care providers that will help keep you well on the inside, along with professionals providing services to help you put your best face, and body, in the spotlight.

Groupon is also a great place to find gifts for those special in your life.  (We are encroaching on a major “gift giving” season therefore I recommend you search for deals so that you can spread the joy – and your money – farther.)  And once you purchase a Groupon don’t forget about it!  Most have an expiration date so how about getting a folder (I bet you can find a deal for one at Groupon) and keep your printed coupons well organized.folder

If you’ve never visited the Groupon site, don’t be afraid, it’s easy to navigate. All you do is enter your city/state and look for deals in your area.  They also provide great prices on items you can purchase on-line.  It’s a win-win!  Enjoy your shopping and be proud of yourself for saving some money with the help of Groupon.

10 Halloween Etiquette Tips And Tricks

10 Halloween Etiquette Tips & Tricks - Ann Again and again Reviews

 

It’s time for scary costumes, carving pumpkins, candy and trick or treating.  As Halloween approaches, there are somethings parents and children need to remember.  10 Halloween Etiquette Tips & Tricks:

–        Select Appropriate Costumes: Costumes that represent a culture, race, ethnic or religious group or someone with a serious illness, poverty or other hardship, are inappropriate.  Sexually explicit costumes and those mocking LGBT or gender identity encourage negativity. During this election year, our public political figures are certainly on the table; expect to see Clinton and Trump.

 

–        Teach Your Kids Manners: Halloween is a great opportunity to teach your kids manners, such as greeting and thanking each homeowner who gives them candy. Explain to older kids and teenagers that bullying and pushing smaller kids out of the way won’t be tolerated. When they encounter a bowl of candy at the door, make sure they are considerate and only take one or two pieces.  Be sure they respect private property, including homeowner decorations, and don’t leave unwanted candy or wrappers in lawns.

 

–        Age Appropriateness: While many adults enjoy Halloween dress up, remember this is mostly a children’s holiday.  What your teenager might wear, is not a good fit for a first-grade Halloween party.  Gage the costume based on your child’s age, and the age of his or her peers. Even if you think your young child might be able to handle dressing up as Freddy Krueger, it might be too much for his or her friends.

10 Halloween Etiquette Tips & Tricks - Ann Again and again Reviews

 

–         Candy Alternatives: Traditional chocolate or sugar-laced candy are always a hit. With more health conscious parents, consider sealed mini bottled water, pre-packaged popcorn, coloring books, pre-packaged healthy snacks, small inexpensive toys, or pens/pencils.

 

–        Respect Neighbors Who Aren’t Participating: By simply turning off the outside lights, this alerts trick or treaters to skip your house and go on to the next.  As an option, consider leaving a bowl of candy by the front door.  Putting the car in the garage may also remove the question of whether someone is home.

 

–        Knock One Time and One Time Only: If no one answers, move on to the next house.  There’s no need to be excessive and knock 10 times. The homeowner might be on an important call or trying to help a baby to sleep. On a related note: know when it’s appropriate to knock. Trick or treating generally starts just before sunset and ends by 9pm.  10 Halloween Etiquette Tips & Tricks - Ann Again and again Reviews

–        No Homemade Treats: While it’s a nice thought to want to bake homemade Halloween treats, don’t do it.  Parents have heightened safety concerns for good reason, and will discard these items.  Buy pre-packaged candy from trusted brands like Hershey, M&M, Skittles, Dove, Reese’s.

 

–        Never Arrive Empty Handed: Anyone invited to a Halloween party, does not arrive empty handed.  Bring a small hostess gift such as tea towels, diffuser, candle, coasters, fresh fruit, wine, packaged sweets, or children’s game.

 

–        Office & School Policies: Office culture varies, so be sure to research your workplace policy. Ask a trusted colleague about the ‘unwritten rules.’ Some offices encourage tasteful costumes, while others frown upon the practice.  Education policies vary, so don’t assume children may wear their costumes to school.  In many school districts across the nation, costumes are prohibited for safety reasons. Double check and don’t assume.

 

–         Stay Safe: Younger children should always be accompanied by parents or a designated chaperone. Older children and teens should trick or treat as part of a group.  Never enter someone’s home you don’t know, no matter how nice they seem.  Carry a flashlight and mobile phone.  Follow your intuition and if you have a bad feeling about something, avoid it.

10 Foods To Fight Aging

 

10 Foods To Fight Aging - Ann Again and again Reviews

 

Of course I use lotions and potions to help my skin look as good as possible, yet there’s more to reflecting beauty then what’s on the surface. I agree with Dr. Christopher Calapai, D.O., board certified in family and anti-aging medicine, that beauty really does come from within. There’s no denying the beauty of a those with kindness, love and understanding in their heart. And, we know, that eating well makes you feel better and keeps your physique in top shape as well.  But don’t underestimate the power of certain foods when it comes to beauty and looking youthful.  Read on for 10 Foods To Fight Aging .

Keep them guessing your age

1.   Edamame: Collagen, the fibrous protein that keeps skin firm and wrinkle-free, begins to decline in your 20’s.  Eating edamame, a food rich in soy, can help preserve collagen.  Soy contains isoflavones – a natural compound that is capable of exerting estrogen-like effects.

2.   Tart Cherry Juice: Who knew that this tangy drink naturally contains melatonin? Well, it does.  And melatonin promotes sleep.  Beauty sleep – enough said.

3.   Oysters: These shellfish are filled with selenium and zinc, which both possess skin-clearing properties.  Zinc is a trace mineral that is essential for its role in cell growth and cell replication.  Selenium is a dietary mineral that increases your antioxidants levels.  Antioxidants are critical for preventing blocked pores.

4.   Honey: This sweet treat is a natural humectant, meaning it attracts water.  When it comes to your skin, consuming honey helps draw water from the mineral tissues to the surface of the skin, keeping it moisturized, supple and flake-free.

5.   Sweet Potato:  Aside from being delicious, sweet potatoes contain beta-carotene, which is converted to Vitamin A.  Vitamin A prevents hair from becoming dull and lifeless and your scalp dry and flakey – which can result in dandruff.

6. Cantaloupe: Very high in antioxidants, you’ll keep your eye health on point and since it is rich in vitamin C immune health is increased. That means fewer colds leaving you weak and sluggish. Finally this power fruit protects you from free radicals at the cellular level.

7. Brazil Nuts: All you need to eat are 4 of these a day to need the daily requirement. Packed with selenium, Brazil nuts protect skin against age spots and sun damage. Be sure to keep them in the fridge; once shelled they spoil.

8: Roasted Chickpeas: Packed with kaempferol and quercetion two inflammation fighters, chickpeas keep skin looking clear and even. Also as we age our metabolism slows down. Manganese and copper are two minerals that support metabolism at the cellular level.

9. Cucumbers: A cucumber a day keeps cellulite away. Not only are they delicious and packed skin plumping water but, when sliced and rubbed on cellulite prone areas they phytochemicals tighten collagen reducing the visibility of cellulite.

10. Guacamole: You can’t go wrong with avocados, which are great for your blood and bones. Oleic acid, the monounsaturated fat that is good for your heart makes up 59% of it’s total fat. It’s also great for skin and hair.

Age Appropriate Chores For Kids

 

Age Appropriate Chores For Younger Kids - Ann Again and again Reviews

It’s wise to start teaching children to help around the house with assigned chores when they’re young.  It doesn’t need to be perceived as a punishment, taking care of the home you live in is a blessing!  Think about it, you have a home.  Show your children that cleaning is taking pride in your surroundings and yourself.  (I’m still working on having my teenager understand this *ahem*  Oh boy! ).  Below you’ll find a chart to help guide you to Age Appropriate Chores For Kids.  Print it out and post it in your home!

Of course, a child’s age doesn’t really define what chores are appropriate, but it can give a starting guideline. The physical, developmental, and emotional age of a child all make a difference. So be prepared to adapt the list.

Make it fun and don’t expect perfection.

 

After all, you want to encourage chore activities, not make your child(ren) frustrated or resentful. The more kids accept doing chores when young, the better the chance they will cooperate when older.

You can find more helpful guidelines and printable charts at Association for Comprehensive Neurotherapathy – ACN Latitudes:  http://latitudes.org/ .

Free Pancakes For Kids At Denny’s

Peace of mind Tips In September - Ann Again and again Reviews

KIDS WILL FLIP FOR FREE FLUFFY PANCAKES AT DENNY’S IN SEPTEMBER

To begin my Peace of Mind theme for September I’m sharing a great opportunity to feed your children – for free and also help a very needy cause.  America’s Diner, Denny’s, introduces September’s month-long “Free Pancakes for Kids” promotion – ages 10 and under from 4-10 p.m. Denny’s also kicks off the sixth annual No Kid Hungry campaign. In addition to its Free Pancakes for Kids promotion, Denny’s has partnered with No Kid Hungry® in September to raise money to help end childhood hunger.

 

To-date, Denny’s has been able to donate more than $3.3 million to No Kid Hungry and will look to make an even greater impact for the cause this year with the support of its team members and guests. This year, Denny’s will also donate $1 to No Kid Hungry every time the hashtag #ShareMySlam is shared on Twitter and Instagram, giving guests another way to help this important cause.

 

Denny’s delicious pancakes — now with 50 percent more fluffy goodness, made with fresh buttermilk, real eggs and a hint of vanilla — are featured throughout the kids menu and for the first time are offered in variety of new kid-sized signature dishes, including the Jr. Cinnamon Pancakes, Jr. Strawberries & Cream Pancakes and Chocolate Chip Pancakes. Kids ages 10 and under can enjoy Denny’s pancakes in any of these dishes for free every day in September from 4-10 p.m. with the purchase of one adult entrée at participating locations.

 

“With families getting back into groove of the school year, the month of September is the perfect opportunity for fans of Denny’s to take advantage of our Free Pancakes for Kids offer,” said John Dillon,@DillonJohnW, chief marketing officer for Denny’s. “Not only is this a great way for our guests, including kids, to try our new pancakes, but it is also our way of inviting families to enjoy breakfast for dinner at an affordable price.”

 

“Sharing ‘My Strength’s No Kid Hungry’ program is one of the most recognizable annual anti-hunger campaigns in the nation and we’re proud to have the ability to partner with this worthy organization for the sixth year in a row,” said Dillon. “At Denny’s, we know a meal is essential to a child’s well-being and can be directly linked to their academic, health and economic futures. We remain committed to working together with our team members and guests to combat childhood hunger and hope to see even more success this year.”

 

Now through Oct. 2, nearly 1,600 Denny’s restaurants nationwide will join the fight to end childhood hunger with all proceeds going directly to No Kid Hungry. Through No Kid Hungry, every $1 donation received provides a child with 10 healthy meals, making even the smallest of donations impactful. To thank guests for their generous donations, Denny’s will provide a discount coupon redeemable at participating locations upon their next visit.

 

This year, Denny’s will also donate $1 to No Kid Hungry every time the hashtag #ShareMySlam is shared on Twitter and Instagram, giving guests another way to help this important cause. Guests may also contribute to the campaign with a monetary donation of their choice at dennysnokidhungry.com.

Back To School $1000 Giveaway! Ann Again and again Reviews

 

As much as it might pain some (and excite others!) school will be back in session in a few weeks.  Personally, I love summer vacation breaks.  The vibe is relaxed and I don’t need to stress about paper work being filled out, volunteering for the next school event and making sure that homework is done.  (I HATE homework!  Finland has the right idea. Look it up, it’s amazing.)  However, I’m in the land of pencils, papers and Pee-Chee’s which means this is the time to get organized.  I know what would be a big help, money to pay for the essentials. Enter today to win the Back To School $1000 Giveaway!

So, what’s on your list?  Do you have any tips to pass along to those just starting out sending their child(ren) to school? Please leave them in the comments!  It takes a village, right?  I have a recent high school graduate and an incoming high school sophomore so I’ve played this game a few times.  And it doesn’t matter my children’s ages, I still get excited when I open a new box of crayons.  All those colors!!!

What would you purchase if you were the lucky winner of this Back to School $1000 Giveaway?  I learned a lesson the hard – or, rather, embarrassing – way when I was entering my freshman year in high school. Attending a school that was out of my district, I quickly learning the clothing style was very preppy however, the neighborhood that I was coming from was not. I was a bell-bottom girl in a peg-legged Levi’s land! My tip for you? Don’t do major clothing shopping before the first day of school.  Keep it simple in the beginning then, after about a couple of days, you’ll get the gist of what will work well for you.

Ice Cream Samples: Do They Cost or Pay Dividends for Shops?

Ice cream - Ann Again and again Reviews
photo courtesy FreeDigitalPhotos.net

While standing in line for a cold, sweet treat my mind started to wander… this time it wasn’t about paying bills, or thinking about what to make for dinner, this time I was getting into the finance of ice cream. Odd, I know. But, what can I say?  I think of when an ice cream shop has dozens of flavors to choose from, it’s difficult for customers to narrow down their choice. A manager might think that giving away free samples is too expensive but, according to Gelato Products, offering a small sample has big potential to improve profit margins. Ice cream samples: Do they cost or pay dividends for shops?

To make sampling a shop’s ice cream easier, order inexpensive tasting spoons that are designed for short-term use. The portion that an employee will serve to a customer provides only one or two bites, making samples affordable.

Fun Tasting Parties

gelato - Ann Again and again Reviews

Ice cream isn’t the only sample that a shop should offer because more customers want to taste gelato before making a purchase. To remain organized, an ice cream shop can buy gelato spoons in different sizes or colors. If customers are tasting samples of gelato and ice cream, then having spoons that look unique to the product can help them compare the flavors of the frozen desserts. With this technique, an ice cream shop can have a fun tasting party for customers to encourage sales of the desserts.

Sell More Product

Gelato or ice cream spoons for sampling might seem expensive, but the items are affordable at bulk prices from a specialty supply store. While the ice cream supplies necessary for providing samples to customers are not free for a manager, the items can help to increase profits because customers want to buy a larger container of their favorite flavor of ice cream or gelato.  And with this summer heat wave?  I know I want all of my cold, sweet treats in the largest container possible!

Amope - Beautiful healthy summer-ready feet! Coupon!  Ann Again and again Reviews

Finding a New Home in a New City

photo courtesy of freedigitalphotos.net

When you need to find a new home in a new city; trying to figure out where to start can be a daunting task. The good news is this handy list breaks the process down into easy, doable steps.

Start researching as early as possible.

Even if you’re only thinking about moving, the sooner you start researching, the better. A good place to start is familiarizing you with the housing market. For instance, if you’re moving to Seattle you can do an internet search for downtown Seattle condos for sale to get a sense of what homes in various neighborhoods are selling for.

Choose a location.

Once you get an idea of what homes in particular areas cost, you can begin narrowing down your choices. You can start with budget but also consider proximity to work and/or school as well as to any other amenities that may be important to you such as shopping, entertainment, or even medical facilities. As your list of potential neighborhoods gets narrowed down, do a little deeper digging and search for online neighborhood guides that can give you the inside scoop on a particular community.

Get social.

There are two major ways tapping into your social network can help you find a new home. First, friends — or even friends of friends — who live in the area can give you an insider’s perspective on what specific neighborhoods are really like. Second, your social network is a great place to start getting recommendations for real estate agents in your new city.

Contact real estate agents.

No one will know the local real estate market like a local agent. Speak with several realtors and choose the one who best understands both your needs and the market you want to live in.

These steps will help ensure you find a home in an area you’ll love.

There are ways to spend a bundle on outdoor events and activities but that’s not what I’m about.  I’m “Frugal Ann”, always looking for ways to play and have fun without spending a lot (or any!) dollars and cents. There’s an organization dedicated to reminding us the importance of play, and the lessons learned on the playground – Voice of Play.  And you know what’s so great about playgrounds? They’re free! That fits my summer budget perfectly. How about you?

Voice of Play has compiled a list – 8 of the Most PLAYFul Trends of 2016 – which is filled with great ideas on how to play with your family.  It could be building a fort in your yard (or living room), going for a walk in your neighborhood or discovering a new park.  For us, it’s tree climbing and badminton.  (It can get intense – but still fun!)  More and more educators and parents realize that play is crucial for their kids’ — not just for fun, but because it helps them learn!

I would love for you to share what activities you do with your family!  (And remember, Free is a very good price.)  I live in the Pacific NW – Portland, OR – and that gives our family access to the coast, the mountains and the stunning Columbia Gorge. All we need to do is pack a lunch, pay for gas (unavoidable!) then we’re off!  Are you in an area that’s surrounded by the glory of Mother Nature?  If so, where does your family like to go on day trips?
