Win a $100 IKEA Gift Card – and Support Devereux Georgia


**This post may contain affiliate links.**



Remember a while back, I told you about IKEA’s amazing community outreach, both locally and globally?  I’d like to tell you a little about a great organization, which is supported in part by the Atlanta IKEA store:   DEVEREUX GEORGIA, the nation’s largest not-for-profit behavioral health organization. The youth served at Devereux Georgia are considered high risk and require intensive treatment services. As you can imagine, treatment services for such an organization add up and fundraising is the way to keep the doors open.  The Devereux Georgia Treatment Network (Devereux Georgia), is part of the Devereux Foundation, Inc.  Founded in 1912, Devereux is one of the nation’s leading nonprofit behavioral health organizations with 13 centers in 11 states.

Devereux Georgia

Since 1973, Devereux Georgia has provided new hopes, new dreams, and new choices to youth who are suffering from emotional and behavioral challenges brought on by mental illness, sexual exploitation, abuse, neglect, and/or intellectual/developmental disabilities.  The continuum of care provided by Devereux Georgia includes a Psychiatric Residential Treatment Facility, community-based treatment programs, Specialty Foster Care program, and a SACS-accredited school.  With Devereux Georgia’s help, youth develop the confidence and competency to achieve once-unthinkable goals such as literacy, graduation from high school, or the acquisition of basic job readiness skills to become successful and productive members of our community.

For further information about Devereux Georgia, please see links at the bottom of this post.

How can you help support Devereux Georgia?

On October 2nd, they will have an art auction fundraiser featuring pieces designed by the youth at Devereux ages 8-21. The evening will also include a jazz trio, dinner, cocktails and a live auction.  The event benefiting Devereux Georgia will be held at the Marietta Country Club, located at 1400 Marietta Country Club Drive in Kennesaw, Georgia. Guests will enjoy dinner, cocktails, and music along with a silent auction showcasing works of art created by Devereux youth. The featured guest speaker of the evening will be Lynn Garson, Esq., mental health advocate and author of the novel “Southern Vapors.”   Ms. Garson will also be joining nationally renowned child psychiatrist, Dr. Yolanda Graham, in a panel discussion on mental health issues and treatment.  To purchase tickets and for more information please visit www.devereux.org/hopeevent or call 770-427-0147.

Dollar Tree DisneyDisney.  For some parents, it seems to be a single word synonymous with “breaking-the-bank”.  But that is far from the truth.  You can indulge your Disney Side by various frugal means, including trying out the Dollar Store Disney.

Planning a Disney party for your little Princess or Superhero does not have to break your Mickey ears bank.  Check out these fun products you can find at the Dollar Tree.  That’s right they are all just $1 each!  Please note, items can vary at each Dollar Tree location.  But there are always Disney products in those aisles to choose from.  Here are some of the things you may find: [Read more...]

Frugal Disney Tips


**This post may contain affiliate links.**



Frugal Disney Tips

There really is nothing better than indulging in a trip with your family to the happiest place on earth. According to my Timehop app, it was three years ago, my husband and I first took our then 2-year-old daughter to Disney, or “Mickey’s House” as she called it then.  We’ve been blessed to be able to make the trip each year since, and make it a frugal yet memorable experience each time.  But a trip to Disney doesn’t have to break the bank*, not by a long shot! Here are some of my favorite frugal Disney Tips:

1)  Bring your own food and drinks.  Disney World does it right – while you are welcome to treat yourself to a Mickey-shaped ice cream, or any other foods in their many dining areas, you are also welcome to bring your own food inside.  We usually bring a small to medium cooler, place 2-4 frozen water bottles in it, along with sandwiches, frozen yogurt tubes, apple slices, grapes, and fruit veggie pouches for the kids.  We drink the water bottles as they thaw throughout the day, and it helps lighten our load as we go as well.  Also we bring along some non-cooler goods, like Goldfish, crackers, bananas, and granola bars – and we’re good to go!

Along those lines…..

2) Free water available!  Did you know, you can get free water at Disney parks?  Yep.  At any dining area where they sell fountain drinks, you can ask for a cup of water, and it won’t cost you a dime.  We found this to be great for re-filling the kids’ sippy cups throughout the day.
Frugal Disney Tips - Disney free water
3) If you wish to indulge in any purchases while on site, purchase Disney store gift cards at discounts ahead of time.  If you have a Target Redcard, you can get 5% off the purchase of a Disney gift card.  So, a $100 gift card will only cost you $95.  (Or less, think of all the gift card deals Target offers with select purchases, along with the extra 5¢ off with your shopping bag.  That all adds up, y’all!)  Other stores offer discounted gift cards as well – check Sams and Costco, as well as your drug stores for gift card deals.  The Disney gift cards are good at any park, as well as any Disney resort, and obviously the Disney stores – so you’d be surprised how quickly you spend “Disney money” – save whereever you can, y’all!

4) Order a custom Disney map for FREE!  Yep, you can order a map of the Disney parks of your choice, absolutely free.  You can choose to have it sent to you via mail, or print it out for faster use.  With the custom maps, you can highlight the attractions of your choosing, which can expedite your traveling to and fro at the parks. This creates special keepsake maps of all 4 parks that highlight your favorite attractions and entertainment.  Click the banner below to get your FREE custom Disney map:



4) Get souvenirs ahead of time.  Dollar Tree almost always has little Disney trinkets that will make for great souvenirs for your Disney trip – and depending on what you find, your child can have them to use during the trip.  I also have found good luck in perusing the clearance racks at Walmart or Target for Disney shirts or tanks to wear for wearing to the parks.  (One year, my daughter was gifted a $3 Tinkerbell tank, and for all she knew, Tinkerbell herself delivered it to our hotel room that evening.)Dollar Tree Disney

5) Check for bundled deals for park tickets and room/board.  Two years ago, we found a Groupon for a resort (non-Disney) that hit the spot: two bedrooms, full kitchen, and a “living room”, all of which came in handy since my in-laws graciously joined us to take care of my then infant son while we took our daughter to Disney for the (long) day.  Last year, my in-laws (God bless them!) scored a deal through their local Mustang club, where we got to stay at a Disney resort for 2 nights, and got park admission after 5 pm for one day, as well as admission to some Mustang show dealy-thingy.  (Ok, not my cup of tea, but …)

Finally, a word of warning: when it comes to park tickets to Disney, be careful.  If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.  Be wary of individuals selling tickets via Craigslist or other “non-secure” outlets.  That guy holding park tickets on the side of the road may have legit tickets, or he may be selling one-day tickets that have already been used – you just don’t know.  And what a pity to spend money on tickets, only to have your dreams crushed once you reach the park, right?Frugal Disney Tips

* In full disclosure, my husband has family who work for the Disney parks, so we get to get in for free once a year.  See, y’all – it pays to stay in good graces with your kin folk!  ;)

Toddler Nutrition with Enfagrow #ad


**This post may contain affiliate links.**



Enfagrow_banner

Y’all may know by now, I’m dealing with two super-finicky eaters, which is why I was delighted to try out Enfagrow as a part of this sponsored post program.  Y’all may further know by now of my efforts to thwart those picky habits with a variety of picky-tot pleasers.

One thing that has emerged greatly since my children were born was the vast benefits of DHA, something that I cannot provide for my kids in things like cow’s milk – which they would chug all. day. long, if I let them!  That’s why I was super-pleased to learn Enfagrow provides a nice helping of DHA in their toddler products!
