Happy Mother's May! #FlippForMoms

So Mother's Day has indeed come and gone, or has it? Flipp believes that moms should be celebrated during the entire month of May, and as a way to give back to the moms who give so much of themselves, Flipp is hosting an amazing giveaway on their FB and twitter

They are giving away an amazing $250 SpaFinder gift certificate once a week to one lucky winner (ending on June 3rd). All you have to do is send them a tweet or post on their FB page telling them the best thing you've learned as a mom (or from your mom)! Be sure to use #FlippForMoms in your comment(s)/tweets. Click here for more info and official contest rules. 

I've been using the Flipp App since it first came out. If there's one thing that can be said about me it's that I love to save money! I especially love it when some stores actually show my total savings at the end of my receipts (I wish more of them would do this). It makes me feel like I just saved the day! 

Every Thursday morning, I get excited when the little Flipp notification comes on telling me that there are new deals to be had! If you haven't heard of it yet, you honestly don't know what your missing (aside from the extra money in the bank). Flipp is this girls best friend! You can browse most of your local retail flyers (not just grocery stores either!), build your shopping list and be off on your way to getting the best deals around! Using the latest addition of their "Coupon Matchups" option, it shows you where you can price match and add the selected coupon(s) to optimize your savings, I easily save $50-70 a week using this method! 

In addition to Flipp's awesome contest, I'm thrilled to have partnered up with them to offer one of my readers a chance a $100 SpaFinder gift card. Enter below for your chances to win!

5 Things Your Mom Actually Wants for Mother's Day!

5 things your mom actually wants for Mother's Day (from a mom to her kid(s) in no particular order):

1) Time to herself. (this includes letting her sleep in!)
You don't need to send her to a spa, just let her have a day to herself. Let her do whatever she wants to do, ALONE. And by all means, if she wants to go to a spa (she'll be dropping hints if she does), then get her a gift certificate to a local spa and let her enjoy it. 

2) A freshly made bed.
Ah, who doesn't love the smell of clean sheets? And the feel of neatly tucked in taught sheets against your skin. Need I say more?

3) Breakfast in bed. 
Actually, make all of the meals that day! There's nothing more satisfying than eating a meal that's been freshly prepared by someone else.

4) Laundry done and put away (same goes for the dishes).
Nothing else needs to be said about this. It's the "not having to do it" that makes it wonderful.

5) Printed photos. 
OK, so I know you have a gazillion photos stored on your camera, your phone, you google drive, iCloud (I could keep going!). Take the time to pick out and print special photos from the last year, buy a photo album to place them in or print a photobook and wrap it up. She'll love it!

At the end of the day, showing your mom how much you love her is all she really needs. Flowers and chocolate are nice, but save those goodies to be used randomly throughout the year, she'll appreciate the surprise. 

**Feel free to use the above list for ANY special occasion 
in which to celebrate that special woman in your life!**

Netflix is the Schmidt! #StreamTeam

Unless you're a mole man/woman, you already know that Season 2 of Netflix's "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt" is out! I can't tell you how much I was looking forward to this season, so the day it was release I started my binge-watching. I finished the whole thing in 2 days and now I'm dying for Season 3!!! Yes, this fabulous Netflix Original has been renewed for yet another season so here's to another year of waiting.
