What is Saving Star and Why Should I join this program?


Saving Star is basically just another way to maximize the amount of money you can save on groceries and other items!!

CLICK HERE and log in with Facebook to join SavingStar for free. Choose the stores where you shop. For some stores you’ll register your grocery and drugstore loyalty cards on SavingStar, (for example, your CVS ExtraCare card, your Stop & Shop card, etc.) and for other stores you’ll need to save your receipts from purchases. Then, click the offers you want and Saving Star will link them to all of your registered store cards. For Automatic-Savings Stores, when you use your card at checkout like you normally do, your savings are automatically added to your SavingStar account within 2-22 days depending on when the store sends the purchase data. (Note: the savings are not given at checkout in the store and they are not printed on your receipt). For Receipt-Scan Stores, save and submit you receipt through the SavingStar app or website. Once your accumulated savings in your SavingStar account reach $5, you can pick your payout from a deposit into your bank or PayPal account or a donation to American Forests. It’s that easy!

When you Shop at your favorite stores make sure you use your loyalty card when you check out.

Save money by getting automatic deposits into your SavingStar account.

Once your account hits $5 you can cash out (via Paypal or direct deposit, or you can donate your money to charity).  Since Saving Star is considered an “ECoupon,” you can stack the offers with manufacturer’s coupons and “double dip” for even bigger savings!!

Saving Star offers a weekly “freebie”  Just buy this product and receive 100% of the cost back (via deposit into your account).  

They also have special “healthy offers,” which offer savings on RARE items, such as 20% off apples.

I have used Saving Star for about three years now and I have earned a couple of hundred dollars with their additional cash back offers (since I automatically use my loyalty cards every time I shop.  Link them in your account once and take advantage of savings you’re not even aware of).

CLICK HERE to check out Saving Star.

Let me know if you have any questions!!

JOHNSON & JOHNSON, a name you can trust for all of your Wound Care Needs – #JNJWoundCare #spon

As a wife and mother I have a lot of responsibilities, the most important of which is taking care of my family.

There’s not much worse than seeing someone in my family hurt.

Whether I am taking care of a minor boo-boo or someone recovering from major surgery, having a well stocked first aid kit is important to me.  

If and when an accident occurs the last thing I want to have to do is run to the store for first aid supplies!!

If you don’t have a First Aid Kit, grab a box and make your own.

Good things to include are:

  • Gloves
  • Surface Mat
  • Hand Sanitizer or Soap & Water
  • Saline Water
  • Scissors
  • Band Aids
  • Non Stick pads
  • Gauze Pads
  • Paper, cloth or waterproof tape

Check out these great tips on using the right wound care products which can help promote wound healing.

The BEST way to start the healing process is to keep the wound clean and protected.  

ALWAYS remember to wash your hands both before and after treating a wound!!

I will NEVER forget when my youngest daughter broke her arm in three places falling from an Allstar Cheerleading stunt a few years ago.

She had to have major surgery to place three rods in her arm to help the bones heal properly, and then she had to have a second surgery to have the rods taken out.  

We used A LOT of first aid supplies!!  Johnson and Johnson’s Non Stick Pads and tape were the perfect thing to put on top of her stitches and staples!!

We would wrap her arm with Johnson and Johnson’s Secure Flex Wrap, which secured the pads and tape and kept them and her wound even more protected.

My oldest daughter was also an Allstar Cheerleader for several years so you can only imagine how much ankle, elbow and wrist drama I have been through in my lifetime!!

For years, my girls used Johnson and Johnson’s Secure Flex Wrap for joint support during tumbling and competitions!  

Now that I think about it, Johnson and Johnson was a name I loved and trusted when they were babies, and a name that continued to take care of them as they matured in to young adults!

No matter what their age is, knowing which products to use is a great first step in making sure your loved ones receive the proper care they need.  Check out Johnson and Johnson’s Wound Care Page at to get tips and tricks from caring for minor cuts to recovering from surgery, and make sure you choose the proper products for whatever comes your way.
