Glasstic Shatterproof Glass Water Bottle (Review)

I don't go anywhere without a water bottle.  I can't even begin to guess how many plastic water bottles we have in our kitchen cupboards.  Some work great, while others don't.  I hate when I grab a water bottle, head out the door, and then find it leaking and making a mess all over everything.


My children are also active in sports, so having durable, reusable water bottles is essential for making our lives a little bit easier.

The Glasstic Shatterproof Glass Water Bottle is perfect for all of your favorite beverages (hot or cold) for a variety of key reasons.

1.  It's Shatterproof!  Designed with a glass insert on the inside of a durable plastic outer casing that helps protect from breakage while providing containment and shatter proofing even if the glass does break.   Glasstic customers can rest easy knowing that they offer a free glass insert replacement in the first year and also sell them for the life of the product for just the cost of shipping.  How cool is that? 

2.  It's Safe & Pure! Glasstic contains a 16oz pure glass insert on the inside where your liquids are and a BPA Free Plastic outer shell around the glass to provide durability and containment.  No risk of bad chemicals leaching into your water or beverage.

3.  It's Easy to Clean! Glasstic can be easily disassembled and cleaned manually or in the top rack of a dishwasher.

There is Another $5 Off $5 Kohls Coupon – Check Your E-mail!

I just found a great coupon from Kohl's in my inbox!  The coupon is a $5 off $5 Kohl’s coupon! Unlike the last $5 off $5 Kohl's coupon I received earlier this week, that was only valid for one day, this $5 Kohl’s coupon doesn't expire until July 5th.


I LOVE shopping at Kohl's and I can't pass up an opportunity to do a little free shopping!  That's right, a $5 off $5 Kohl's coupon is just too good to let go to waste.  Plus, you can also stack it with other Kohl's coupons for even more frugal shopping.

Fun, Colorful, Adorable Snack Bags for Kids!

I can't even begin to guess how many snack bags and sandwich bags we go through in a year.  I use them daily in both my kid's lunches and my husband's lunch.  Snacks, sandwiches, storage, party favors... they have so many uses!

Typically I just use clear plastic snack and sandwich bags, but I was recently given the opportunity to try some adorable snack bags from WEXY!  I have to admit that they are super cute and perfect for handing out Boogie Wipes samples...



Inspired by kids and created by moms, made in the USA, WEXY bags are great for lunch snacks, school snacks, or kids treats Using WEXY bags can help motivate your kids to eat healthy kids snacks such as raw food, organic snacks, gluten free or any other healthy recipe for kids. 

$5 Off $5 Kohls Coupon – Check Your E-mail!

I just found a great coupon from Kohl's in my inbox!  The coupon is a $5 off $5 Kohl’s coupon! Yippee! There is only one tiny downfall... it’s only valid today June 28th!


To be honest, I wasn't really planning on going anywhere else today.  My entire family had to wake up at 2:45am this morning.  My eleven year old daughter and I signed up to volunteer at Ironman for morning gear bags.  My husband and 14 year old son headed out on an 7 1/2 hour drive to Oregon State University for a wrestling camp. Plus, it's going to be 107 degrees today...

However, I LOVE shopping at Kohl's and I can't pass up an opportunity to do a little free shopping!  That's right, a $5 off $5 Kohl's coupon is just too good to let go to waste.  Plus, you can also stack it with the $10 off $30 Kohl's coupon for even more frugal shopping.

Experience the #FitTea All Natural 14 Day Detox

This post is brought to you by Markerly for FitTea and Being Frugal and Making It Work. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation. As always, all opinions are 100% mine. 

It seems as though I have always struggled with my weight.   As a teenager, even though I wasn't overweight, I still thought I was fat.  Unfortunately, society has instilled a negative perception of how people (especially women) are suppose to look and how much they are suppose to weigh.  Size 0 is not the "norm" people... in fact, I recently read that the average American woman wears a size 14 dress!

As a mother of an 11 year old daughter, I have to constantly remind her that everyone is unique and different.  I don't want her to struggle with feeling like the "fat girl" or that she's "too heavy" to participate in certain types of activities.  TRUST ME, I work at her elementary school and hear those types of comments every single day... from girls as young as Kindergarten, and it breaks my heart!  What is this world coming to when a 5 year old feels fat?

I recently took the FitTea 14 Day Detox challenge in addition to making the right eating choices, and was pleasantly surprised with the results.  I will tell you about my results a little bit later.  Right now I want to tell you that I loved the fact that FitTea is all-natural!  In addition, it naturally gives you energy, boosts your metabolism, aids in digestive health and boosts fat-loss in those pesky problem areas. 


FitTea is an all natural blend of ingredients and helps with the following:

  • Promote Fat Burning
  • Boost Immune System
  • Promote & Soothe Digestion
  • Promote Loss Of Body Weight
  • Found To Have Antimicrobial Properties
It's not a "secret" anymore!  Now we can all benefit from this great tasting, all natural tea that helps promote weight loss, a happy digestive system, and healthy immune system.  We also can't forget the other great health benefits as well, such as a boost in both your energy levels and metabolism.
