Earn money & Gift cards. Volume 1 #money #finance #tips

How many of you like free money?  Do you participate with websites that legitimately help you to earn gift cards for the things that you are already doing?  I know I do!    I participate in various programs, apps on my iPhone, and websites that have earned me NUMEROUS gift cards and cash.  Over the course of the next few days, I thought I would go over the very best ones that I use. I’ll tell you what I know to work, how they work, and can show you on many that they ARE legitimate.  
I would also love to hear from you what programs and apps that you use.  I am willing to try them all and will review each of them to give you honest feedback.  If you’ve heard of some, but want feedback before you try them, let me know that as well.   I know that I personally paid for my family’s Christmas this year thanks to gift cards that I earned through these various programs!  Talk about a load off my mind this year!
I think I’ll begin with my absolute FAVORITE!  MyPoints!
I have used MyPoints since I can remember.  It has earned me no less than $50 in gift cards each year for the past 6+ years.  This year it was much more than that!  I received more than $300 in gift cards!
MyPoints offers points for doing MANY of the things every day that you already do!
*Do you read your email?  I know I do, and mypoints sends up to 10 emails every day that offer you opportunity to earn points.  *Do you shop online from walmart, kmart, target???  Why not earn points for every dollar that you spend already?  There are literally HUNDREDS of retailers that participate with MyPoints to help you earn.  * Do you play games?  Why not earn points while you play?   * Do you coupon?  Why not earn points for printing and using those coupons?
There is no cost to join MyPoints, but can you see the great benefit here?  It’s been around for years, but yet you’re just now hearing of it?!
You can go to their website and join, or use my referral link and earn bonus points for doing so.
Don’t forget to like my Facebook page www.facebook.com/FYEDMom for updates, special deals and giveaways. You can message the page with your email address to get your personal invitation to MyPoints.  
Stay tuned for my next installment of ways to earn!

80 Natural Uses for Coconut Oil #health #organic #tips


Studies have long shown that coconut oil is good for so many things!  While putting this list together, I did notice that one other item was left off the list for personal hygiene/body uses and that’s oil pulling.  We’ll do another segment on oil pulling.  That’s actually an acquired art, and if you can get through the first 20 minutes, you’ll be good to go.

Be sure that you are using Organic, Unrefined Coconut Oil.  You can purchase this at many grocery stores and health food stores.
Personal Hygiene/Body:

1. Moisturizer – simply scoop some out of the jar and apply all over your body, including neck and face.
2. Eye cream – apply under the eyes to reduce puffiness, bags, and wrinkles. Use on the lids in the evening.
3. Preshave – coconut oil will prep skin for the pending damage caused by shaving.
4. Aftershave – coconut oil will help heal your skin after shaving without clogging pores.
5. Deodorant – coconut oil alone can be used as a deodorant, but even more effective in combination with cornstarch/arrowroot powder and baking soda!
6. Hair Conditioner/Deep Treatment – use as a leave in hair conditioner by applying a teaspoon of coconut oil to your ends and then running your fingers through your hair to distribute the rest! For a deeper treatment, rub in a tablespoon of coconut oil onto your dry scalp and gently work through to the ends. Put a shower cap on to prevent transfer onto bed linens and leave on overnight.  [Read more…]

BabyComfyGummy Giveaway


Hosted by BubbysMommy

Co-hosted by StylishMomme, Nonperfect Parenting, Sweepstakes Diva, Mean Mommy, & Bentley’s Mom

Sponsored by BabyComfyCare

Baby Comfy Gummi teething jewelry is unique because of the deeply textured surface that massages baby’s gums. Babies will grab what is available and that is often jewelry that hangs around a parent’s neck, so why not wear something that baby can safely chew on? When babies are teething, they need something to chew on to massage aching gums and help the teeth break through the skin. Chewing on the special, textured surface of Baby Comfy Gummi relieves teething discomfort. Phthalate-free, BPA-free, PVC-free, Lead-free, FDA-approved and CPSIA-compliant medical grade silicon rubber. The lanyard features a quick-release snap.
