Game Day Favorites + Savings at Publix!

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Game Day Favorites Available at Publix. The opinions and text are mine.

I don’t know about your household, but football is a big deal to my hubby and two boys! Each week, you can find them on the couch as they cheer on their favorite teams. I always try to make sure that they are prepared for the big game by preparing some of their favorite snacks and treats.

You can have fun by celebrating game day with great products & savings at your local Publix. Because saving money is a big deal to me, I love the fact that starting on January 20th, Publix is offering $24 in savings on some of my guys’ favorite game day products! Just visit http://www.getthesavings.com/GameDay to download your savings today!

Nothing says football to my family and I than a delicious taco bar with all the fixings! Tacos are great for a few people or for a crowd! I found a great deal on the Ortega Taco Shells 12 count boxes and Ortega Taco Sauce 8 oz. jars at my local Publix store, and feel that they are the perfect items to get any taco party started!

We especially love the Ortega Taco Shells as they are quite large and fit all of the taco fixings that you want to pile inside! They area also crisp, crunchy, and have a delicious taste! In addition, the Ortega Taco Sauce is equally delicious. It has just the right amount of heat and spices, which is the perfect complement to the perfect taco! We love to fill our tacos with black olives, onions, cheese, tomatoes and lettuce. What are your favorite taco fixings? The possibilities are endless!

Nutrisystem Update: #NSNation

Disclosure: I have been selected to be a part of the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger Program for the next 3 months in return for my honest opinion and review. All opinions are 100% mine.

It has been several weeks since my last Nutrisystem update, so I wanted to let you know how things have been going since the holidays. I am not going to lie, being on any type of diet plan during the holiday season is hard. I made some bad food choices during this time and gained back a few pounds. But, I am not going to be hard on myself. This is a journey and I am going to make mistakes along the way. I like to tell myself that quote from Anne of Green Gables, “Tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it.

I have been following the Nutrisystem plan the way that I should this entire week and I feel so much better. Isn’t it amazing that when you make bad food choices you really do feel awful? And, the more bad food that I eat, the more food I want to eat. That is one of the things that I just love about Nutrisystem. Not only does it teach you how to have portion control, but it allows you to eat real food. What other diet plan out there lets you eat cinnamon rolls, pizza, pasta, ice cream and other yummy foods and lose weight while doing so? You eat this food and you lose the weight. It really is that simple!

Staying focused is my goal this week! I have to continually remind myself that weight loss is a marathon towards your goals and not a sprint. Staying focused means being prepared for the unexpected. Nutrisystem is preparing me for healthy and attainable goals after I finish the program.

Stay tuned as I continue on my journey! A huge thank you to Nutrisystem for allowing me to continue with the program.

I also wanted to mention The Leaf by Nutrisystem. This is where you will find delicious program-friendly recipes, success stories and more! I made the Hearty Chili over the weekend and it was so delicious that my entire family enjoyed it! Score!

The Best Things to Buy in January

 (All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

Are you still trying to recover from holiday shopping? Don’t stop now as January is packed full of great deals to take advantage of. From linens to televisions and everything in-between, it is a great time to score some unexpected deals.

Gym Memberships- We all know that January is a time when many of us make fitness goals for the new year. During the year, joining a gym may be complicated as there can be fees which are added onto your membership. However, if you join in January, these fees will often be waived and you can usually take advantage of a free introductory period, or discounted rates. I know that Planet Fitness is offering a deal right now where you can join for $1 down and pay just $10 a month. Check to see what deals are out there as you may be surprised! 

Linens, Bedding and Towels– January is traditionally known as the month for White Sales at most department stores. You can expect to find some great deals on bedding, linens and towels. I have seen sales for as much as 75% off on these items so be sure to check out your favorite stores to see what deals that they are offering. Some of my favorite stores to shop for these items are Kohl’s and Macy’s as they will offer coupons and money-saving offers that you can combine with the sale price to score some really sweet deals!

Holiday Decor– I am sure that by now you have seen the holiday clearance going on at many stores. Places like Target, Walmart and Bed Bath and Beyond are offering items for as much as 90% off! I have found some amazing deals on items this week. One of my biggest tips when it comes to shopping for holiday decor is to look for those items that are not necessarily holiday-themed. I found the cutest Farmhouse decor at Hobby Lobby for 80% off that was labeled “Holiday” but it can be used year round. Of course, you will find super deals on wrapping paper, bows and ornaments so it is always wise to stock up for the next year. I also love to look for those “hidden” gems at store like Walmart and Target. Ziploc bags and holiday themed coffees are some of my favorites! I scored the 18-count boxes of Green Mountain Peppermint K-Cups at Best Buy yesterday for $3.50 a box! Think outside of the box.

Holiday Travel and Hotel Stays– If you are planning on traveling in 2018, January can be a great time to book your travel. I have noticed several airlines offering flights for as low as $29 one way. You can also save as much as 20% off hotel stays. Many places will also offer incentives for booking vacation packages and getaways!

Furniture– Did you know that January is one of the best months to buy furniture? New inventory for most stores arrives in February so they will be clearing out remaining inventory. I would even ask about deals on floor model samples as the stores will be clearing those items out too. You could end up with some amazing deals!

Organizational Items–  I think for many of us, January is a time when we resolve to get more organized. This is a great time to stock up on things like storage bins, calendars, planners and other items to get your life and home organized.

Winter Apparel– Clothing sales are probably one of the biggest sales that we will see during the month of January. Retailers are clearing racks of winter coats and accessories to make room for spring fashions. In many parts of the country we are experiencing very cold weather so this may be a great time to score a deal on that winter coat you have been needing! If nothing else, it is a great time to plan ahead for next winter. I always try to buy a few things for the boys in their next size for the winter months if I can find a great deal.

Televisions– If you have been wanting to upgrade your television, January is a great month to do so. Many stores will offer sales in preparation for the Super Bowl. You may also notice open box televisions or returns from the holiday that you can score for a really great deal. It never hurts to ask about those as well!

Gift Cards– Right after the holidays many people try to exchange gift cards for something that they can use or want. Did you know that sites like Raise.com and Cardpool  offer discounted gift cards? If you are looking to make a purchase at your favorite store why not save and buy a discounted gift card? If you need to sell an unwanted gift card, you can also do that on these sites. I love purchasing discounted gift cards as you can pair them with coupons and money saving offers to really get a great discount on items that you may need.
