A $155 TRV Giveaway!
This is a sponsored post, thank you for supporting my blog. As always, all opinions are 100% my own.
As a mom, I am always looking for ways to save money. One big way that I do this is by using coupons. That doesn’t always mean needing to clip, organize, and then not manage to lose the ones I need before I make it to the checkout with my 3 children in the store. I have figured out the easy way is to shop online from the comfort of my couch using Groupon Coupons.
My favorite feature is that you can search not only by store, but by category as well. If I want to find who has the best deals on baby clothing and goods currently, it takes me to one page where everything is listed. There I found some of my favorite brand, including:
Buy Buy Baby
Babies R Us
and of course Amazon
So instead of going to Amazon myself and having to search through the baby category to figure out what the best deals are, I went directly to Groupon Coupons and found a great deal on car seats — up to 40% off! This will save me not only money, but time as well. That is one thing that we all can never have too much of.

I recently had a discussion in a Mom’s group about children being able to get out of their car seats in the car. Evenflo has recalled one of their booster seats due to this happening, and giving owners a new harness so it doesn’t happen again. Check out the full press release below for directions if you have one of these models:
MIAMISBURG, OH (PRWEB) SEPTEMBER 21, 2016
Evenflo has announced a voluntary recall on select models of its Evolve Booster Seat over concerns that some children can access and activate the harness adjustment button without adult assistance, and potentially loosen the harness. Evenflo is providing owners with a new harness adjustment button which will effectively eliminate this possibility. No injuries have been reported, but Evenflo wants to remind caregivers that a snug harness is essential to proper restraint.
Approximately 32,000 seats in the U.S. and Canada with model numbers 34411700, 34411741 and 34411700C, manufactured before February 9, 2016, are included in this voluntary recall.
To determine if your seat is affected and to order your remedy kit, visit http://www.evolve.evenflo.com or call 1-800-233-5921 (US)/1-800-265-0749 (Canada), Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. EST. The remedy kit includes a push-style harness adjustment button, to replace the existing pull-style button.
“Child safety is at the forefront of every decision we make,” said Sarah Haverstick, Evenflo Safety Advocate. “In conjunction with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Transport Canada, we are working to ensure all owners are aware of the voluntary campaign.”
Evenflo is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Goodbaby International Holdings Limited. Goodbaby International is a durable juvenile products company that is listed on the Main Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (1086:HK). The Group designs, researches and develops, manufactures, markets and sells strollers, children’s car seats, cribs, bicycles and tricycles and other durable juvenile products.

This week’s US Weekly issue featured an article about Shiri Appleby, who is currently expecting her 2nd child in December. The article was about her home, and it included a photo of a clock that she has that counts down the days until her due date.
I thought the clock could be a cute addition to one’s home, and a way for everyone to remember that a special day is coming soon when another little one will arrive. The article didn’t state where they had purchased the clock, or if they made it themselves, and an internet search didn’t reveal anything similar. There is a Countdown Clock digital version on Amazon that lets you customize for multiple occasions, but I didn’t think it was as cute as the one pictured. Even Pinterest lacked DIY options, although I don’t think one would be to hard to make. This is a good craft idea that I will keep in mind for the future.
Of course there can be drawbacks to keeping a “timer” visible at all times in one’s home. In December when her due date nears, this could cause Shiri some anxiety, especially if the clock reaches “0” and the baby has yet to arrive. I don’t love the idea of putting an expiration date on a pregnancy, as babies arrive when they are ready to.
Overall, I think it’s a cute idea that anyone could implement in their own home. There are also a lot of ways to put a countdown clock together in creative ways that haven’t been mentioned here.
Have you ever had a countdown clock, or anything counting down the days of your pregnancy?
