Where to Get Cheap Zyrtec

**This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



How can you get cheap Zyrtec?  I am frequently asked about where to get the best deal on particular items.  And, between my husband and I, we seem to be allergic to absolutely everything!  Thus, we are year-round Zyrtec users.  As such, I’ve done my research, and continue to find the VERY best place to get cheap Zyrtec is at Costco.

They sell their store brand equivalent for $14.99 (sometimes on sale for $11.99, as illustrated below), with 365 pills in the bottle.  That comes out to about 4¢ a pill.  Bam!  Cheap Zyrtec!

Even if you snag the coupons that come out from time to time to grab free Zyrtec, you still pay taxes on the pre-coupon amount (in the state of Georgia), and you still have to spend the time and gas money to get there.  (Also, it’s usually the 5-count trial size, so it’s not the best “green” option for year-round or long-term users.)  All in all, buying once or twice a year, at this LOW price, is by far, the way to go!

For us, it works just as well as its name brand counter part, keeping itchy noses and watery eyes at bay.  So, if you’re a Zyrtec user, you may want to consider taking a trip to Costco and stocking up!

Where to get cheap Zyrtec

UPDATE:
Apparently Sam’s Club caught wind of Costco’s rock-bottom prices, and stepped up. Just this week, I was able to snag a 400 count of store brand Zyrtec for $16.48 – which also works out to about 4¢ a pill.

Now that I’ve told you about cheap Zyrtec, now do YOU have any items you’ve found consistently at rock bottom prices?  If so, please share with me, and all my readers!  :)

Weekend with Mixify

**This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



Disclosure: this is a sponsored post on behalf of MtoM Consulting and The Mixify Tour.  

 

Last weekend, more than 100 teens from across Atlanta were treated to a delightful afternoon at Centennial Park with Atlanta Falcons’ Wide Receiver, Devin Hester, as part of the Mixify Tour, a series of events around the country with fun activities, demonstrations, tips and tools, music, and giveaways — all designed to educate teens about the importance of balancing what they eat and drink with what they do.

Mixify is a first-of-its-kind multi-year, national program launched last September by the American Beverage Association (ABA), The Coca-Cola Company, Dr Pepper Snapple Group and Pepsico to engage teens through the communications channels they use every day in ways that fit easily into their lives.  They even offer tips and tools to balance your healthy lifestyle with the foods and drinks you enjoy.

Mixify Tour

Developed with input from moms and teens, the program is focused on supporting parents’ efforts to educate their teens about balance in authentic, interesting and engaging ways. The new Mixify Tour is taking that message of balance on the road with a 25-foot food truck re- purposed into a traveling balance billboard. The truck serves as the center of an event providing activities to demonstrate the importance of balancing “eat, drink & do,” access to experts like fitness instructors to answer questions about balance, group fitness classes, music and ways for teens to share their balance mixes through social media.

For additional information about Mixify or the Mixify Tour, visit www.mymixify.com.  And make sure to check out future dates for the Mixify Tour!

Mixify is part of the Balance Calories Initiative. More information can be found at deliveringchoices.org.

Finally, check out the video of the fun that was had at the Atlanta leg of the tour.

Thomas & Friends Gift Ideas

**This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



I created this post over a year and a half ago, when my son was turning two. Little did I know his love of all things Thomas would only grow!

Check out some of our favorite Thomas accessories, and make sure to sign up for the Thomas & Friends Wooden Railway email updates, to be among the first to know about special promotions, events, premium content, and exclusive new products.

Thomas & Friends gift ideas

My son will be two next month, and is quite the Thomas & Friends fan.  He -um- even introduces himself as Thomas.  (Nope, that’s not even close to his name!)  And he loves singing the Thomas song (“They’re two, they’re four, they’re six, they’re eight….”)  With a birthday three days before Christmas, I struggle to give his birthday the focus he deserves, while not detracting from either his day or the beauty of Christmas.  (And did I mention, he now has a cousin whose birthday is five days before his??)  Since my home has more toys than Toys R Us, we have the added challenge of not gifting too many toys this year, so we are really trying to think outside the (toy) box.

I digress.

If you have a Thomas fan in your life, here are a few gift ideas for the Thomas fan who has everything:

* Thomas the Tank Engine 5-pc dinner ware set

* Thomas Pillow Pet

* Percy Pillow Pet (slightly cheaper?)

* Thomas Underwear

*  Thomas “Track Star” Fleece Throw

* Thomas Footed 1-piece PJs

* Thomas the Train: Bath Buddies Fun Pack — We have these, and my son LOVES them.  So does my four-year-old daughter, truth be told.  😉

And for a good giggle, check out the price range for these Thomas-themed pillow pets.  Careful which department you order yours from! 😉

Cow Appreciation Day is Coming!

**This post may contain affiliate links. I receive a small amount of compensation when you purchase from my links, which I"ll totally blow on waffle fries and sweet tea, y'all!**



Cow Appreciation Day banner

July is known for many things, and many occasions. Most notably, we Americans get all red, white, and blue for the 4th of July. But for the die-hard chicken lovers, we know something spectacular occurs later in the month: Cow Appreciation Day.  Around Atlanta, and across the country, folks will dress up as their favorite bovine, in order to snag some free Chick-fil-a chicken.

It’s a tradition I’ve been embarrassing my kids with for a few years now, and I’ve no intention to stop anytime soon.  However, I’m not (totally) ashamed to admit, I am a walking, talking Pinterest fail.  So, my costumes over the years tend to lack in imagination.

Last year, I think I reached my creative peak, by including my son’s Beanie Baby monkey, per my son’s request in the festivities. But of course, except for the collage below, I totally forgot to snap good pics, because, well, that would’ve just been *too* easy…

 

So, I reached out to some of my blogger pals and fellow Chick-fil-a Mom’s Club members, and came up with a few ideas for you, in case you want to go beyond just pinning the paper cutouts to a white t-shirt.  :)

Of course, Chick-fil-a has some great ideas to get you started, and this year they’ve included some creative extras.  Check out their printable cow templates!

First, Lani of Life Anchored created this adorable cow onesie.  My favorite part?  There’s NO SEWING involved!  Plus, it could easily be done as a regular shirt, not just for a onesie.

Easy-No-Sew-Cow-Costume

 

Tabitha, over at Saving Toward a Better Life, created a simple and adorable cow costume with a simple trash bag.

And of course, Lindsey of Redhead Baby Mama, created a round-up of cow costumes, as well.

So seriously, how will YOU participate in Cow Appreciation Day this year?  Will you get a full meal for your efforts, or be satisfied with an entree?  Comment below with your ideas, or with how you intend to participate in Cow Appreciation Day.

Maple-Blueberry Smoothie

Maple Blueberry Smoothie

Maple.  Blueberry.  Smoothie.  An unlikely combination?  Perhaps.  But give it a try, and I promise not only won’t you be disappointed, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised how the addition of veggies bulks up the nutrition without compromising the taste.  My picky tots gulp it up as fast as I can make these!  Our pediatrician, quite aware of how particular my kiddos are about (not) eating their veggies, has long advocated adding them to smoothies – so my version of this maple-blueberry smoothie fits the nutritional bill quite well.

I saw the original recipe in the paper at my in-laws house in Florida, and it was tagged by the associate press.  So, I’m not quite certain of its origins, but it sure does sound tasty.  In any case, I had to make my own tweeks, substituting ice cream for greek yogurt, and adding the veggies for an extra nutritional punch.  Although I use the Vitamix, you can certainly recreate with a regular blender.
