Abound Crackers and dip CVS Abound Gluten Free Baked Rice Crisps & 4 Ingredient Dip #SnackurdayWhen we found out our daughter needed to eat a gluten free diet about 2 years ago, it was tough at first.

Not a fun adjustment period!

Save Energy and Money with the Stylish LivingPlug Outlet

Living Plug outlet  Save Energy and Money with the Stylish  LivingPlug Outlet The cost of electricity has gradually risen in my neck of the woods over the past decade. In fact, we recently were informed that our rates would be increasing by up to 40% starting in November! Needless to say, reducing our electricity consumption is high on our priority list. Without spending thousands of dollars on the newest most energy efficient appliances, our strategy is to make small improvements. In the long run, lots of small improvements will eventually add up to savings, and my wallet wont be broken. In my new quest to save energy, one of the cool new products I’ll be employing is LivingPlug.

LivingPlug inlet  Save Energy and Money with the Stylish  LivingPlug Outlet LivingPlug took the initiative to redesign the electrical wall outlet. What they ended up with was more than just a new stylish take on an old essential household item. LivingPlug takes your old electrical outlet, and turns it into a safer, energy saving, and stylish smart outlet. The LivingPlug simply plugs into your existing outlet. It can be secured to the outlet by using the existing screw hole that fastens the current face-plate to the outlet, or you can just simply plug it in. LivingPlug has 3 receptacles, plus a 2.1A High Capacity USB input to charge a huge number of smart devices that use USB charging ports.

LivingPlug Wall Outlet  Save Energy and Money with the Stylish  LivingPlug Outlet Honestly, this was the feature that fueled my desire to own a LivingPlug. There’s a particular outlet in my living room that my wife and I fight over. I charge my iPhone and iPad from this outlet, plus my wife uses it for her laptop (the laptop’s battery is shot). I’m constantly needing to unplug my device cord to make room for her laptop. Now that we have LivingPlug, everything can stay plugged in at the same time.

Another great feature of LivingPlug is its ability to “unplug” devices when not in use, without actually needing to unplug them. LivingPlug has an “unplug” button that kills the power to all devices plugged into it. This eliminates “vampire charges”, which are basically energy leaches – draining unnecessary electricity from the grid simply because an electrical device is plugged in. According to EnergyStar, the average household spends $100 per year to power devices that are off. This is an eyeopening statistic if I’ve ever seen one, and i’m taking the initiative to prevent this in my home with LivingPlug.

Safety is another key feature that the LivingPlug added to my home. We have 3 children under 8 yrs old. Our especially rambunctious and exploratory 2 year old son, likes to try everything at least once. Our current at-reach outlets have child protection covers inside the receptacles, but it’s easy to forget to plug the protective cover back in after using the receptacle. LivingPlug has tamper-resistant receptacles built in to the unit. In fact, the receptacles aren’t even visible with the faceplate on the unit. This not only protects the receptacles from tamper, but it places them “out of site – out of mind” for kids.

Happy halloween plug cover  Save Energy and Money with the Stylish  LivingPlug Outlet Last but not least are the endless styling options for LivingPlug. Faceplates slip on and off with ease, and are fully interchangeable. We received a Halloween themed pumpkin faceplate that has been adding a spooky touch to our living area. The LivingPlug faceplate options are seemingly endless! They have covers for every occasion, style, and you can even customize your own! We are going to be having a blast changing up our outlet!

Overall, this product is a five star item that will save you energy and in turn money! Connect with LivingPlug on social media sites Facebook and Twitter.

Suavitel1 Parents: Save Time Drying Clothes with Suavitel® Fast Dry™ Fabric Conditioner! #FastDrySaveTimeRaise your hand if you hate doing laundry! Seriously, I have not come across many people who do love doing it! Even after getting a new washer and dryer, I am still back to square one with despising the whole laundry process! Buying great scented laundry soap, and fabric softener products are the only highlight of the whole chore. I don’t mind actually turning the dials to start my loads, or stop them…BUT (and that is a great big but) laundry is such a time suck, or at least was!

How could you actually save time during the whole clothes washing process you wonder? Well you could check out the all new, and absolutely fabulous smelling Suavitel® Fast Dry™ Fabric Conditioner. walmart fabric softener  Parents: Save Time Drying Clothes with Suavitel® Fast Dry™ Fabric Conditioner! #FastDrySaveTimeThis new product currently comes in two great scents that are available at Walmart stores. It was such a tough call on which scent to try first, but we ended up going with the Magical Morning Sun scented fabric conditioner. Normally, I buy the original Suavitel because I love the smell, but trying out a new product that would save me time, and energy made me excited!

Did you know that your clothes could dry 30% faster when you use this product? For me that is huge because it saves me 15 minutes of drying time because I usually set my dryer timer to 60 minutes. That means I no longer have to wait as long to leave the house, or have fun outdoors with my kids. I will not go out when the dryer is running so sometimes minutes waiting for clothing to finish turns into what feels like an eternity!

Yes, fall yard work and watching my kids have a blast in the mounds of fallen maple leaves have been keeping me occupied. At least it is a good busy, and one that actually makes me smile. I was able to save 32 minutes between both laundry loads I did this weekend so I put that extra time into my outdoor landscaping efforts.

Fanta cake1 Fanta Orange Soda Infused Halloween Cake Snack #SpookySnacks Now that Halloween is officially two weeks away, how have you been enjoying this spooky season? I know my family has been having fun playing in the fall leaves, decorating pumpkins, and making Halloween themed snacks. We recently made a very unique cake that was made with none other than Fanta Orange Soda. The Fanta Orange Soda Infused Halloween Cake  was such a delicious and festive snack that my family almost ate it entirely in one sitting!

Fanta at walmart  Fanta Orange Soda Infused Halloween Cake Snack #SpookySnacks Fanta Sodas come in several different flavors like Grape, and also Cherry which is a Walmart exclusive flavor! We purchased two, two liters of Fanta Orange-one to enjoy with some ice, and another to add to our Fanta cake. We picked up some Dasani Water which is perfect for us to carry in our stroller for Halloween night hydration!

Fanta Cake ingredients  Fanta Orange Soda Infused Halloween Cake Snack #SpookySnacks For my Halloween snack, I was looking for something a little different and unique. I have heard from a family member that you can literally mix one boy of cake mix with 12 ounces or Orange Fanta and it will produce a great cake.

How to make Fanta Orange Soda Infused Halloween Cake Snack:

Directions: Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Literally just mix the two ingredients, and then pour it into a greased bundt pan. Bake for 30 minutes (much less for cupcakes-15-18 mins), or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Easy peasy huh?

halloween soda cake Fanta Orange Soda Infused Halloween Cake Snack #SpookySnacks I admit, I was a wee bit skeptical at first because the cake and soda mixture was so foamy. I added it to a greased silicone bundt pan, and then baked it for 30 minutes.

Halloween Fanta Cake Fanta Orange Soda Infused Halloween Cake Snack #SpookySnacks Our cake was very springy, and has a light and fluffy texture. You could definitely tell there was a slight texture difference but it was certainly a positive one! I made some homemade icing for it using some confectioners sugar, and Fanta Orange Soda–so good!

Plus, Dasani bottles are made from plant resin, and are designed to stand up in the fridge. The 12 ounce size are perfect for toting around on Halloween night!
