Amazon Prints is REALLY worth the try! $1000 of Amazon Gift Cards to be Won!

Amazon Prints is REALLY worth the try! $1000 of Amazon Gift Cards to be Won!

I will be the first to admit that I take an abundance of photos!  I will also admit that I'm guilty of not getting them printed in a timely manner... and they just keep adding up!

 
Amazon has recently launched a photo printing service that allows all customers to print their memories.  Prime members can upload images to their Prime Photos account, print the product of their choice, and receive free delivery. If you’re not a Prime member, you’ll receive 5 GB of storage free on Prime Photos and be able to print your favorite photos.  Prints start as low as $0.09.  

You can do so much with Amazon Prints!  Photo printing, photo books, photo gifts and so much more...

I can't wait to give it a try!  I love sharing photos with family and friends.  Plus, photo books, photo canvases and photo calendars make perfect gifts!

My Swagbucks Story: FREE Gifts for my Kids Every Birthday & Christmas!

I post about Swagbucks rather often...  The reason I share is because I love Swagbucks!  Since joining, I have been able to get my kids some AMAZING gifts at no cost.  That's right, FREE GIFTS! 

The best part is that the points you earn can be used to get free gift cards to places like Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart, Target, PayPal cash, and many more!

Trust me, Swagbucks actually works -  I currently earn between $50 and $70 each month and it really adds up.  Once I redeem my Swagbucks for a prize, it takes less than a week for them to arrive in my inbox.  I'm always impressed with how quickly they send our rewards.


I "bank" and save my rewards all year long and redeem them for "FREE" Birthday and Christmas gifts for the kids!  The kids are always thrilled with their gifts and I'm happy that I was able to stick to our holiday budget and not break the bank! 


Christmas 2010, I was able to use them for the one thing  my son had been asking for... a metal detector!  Yep, that's right... I didn't have to spend a penny out of pocket, it was FREE!

Hands On Activity Bags for Kids: The Key to Road Trip Success!


When traveling with children, the key to making any road trip successful is being able to keep the kids occupied, happy and entertained!  It doesn't matter what age the children are... if they aren't happy, everyone in the car is going to be unhappy! 

Two of my favorite ways to pass the time while traveling with kids are road games and activity bags!

What you decide to include in each activity bag highly depends on the age of the children you are traveling with.  Of course, each bag needs to be age appropriate: games, snacks, candy, activity books, coloring books and toys are among the most popular items!

One place that I can always count on to carry the perfect items to create fun-filled road trip survival kits is Oriental Trading!
 
 

My most recent delivery included so many fun items for our upcoming 5 1/2 hour Spring Break road trip with a car full of teenage girls!
