Save Money on Groceries and Earn $5

Save money on groceries without clipping coupons--plus earn $5 cash back! Hurry--limited time cash-back promo!

In a family our size, one of the best contributions I can make to the finances is winning the lottery or coming into a large inheritance, but since I don’t have the kind of luck that wins lotteries, and I’m not in too many wills, neither one is working for us. The second best thing I can do is cut back on our spending. Our biggest area of spending is groceries–no surprise there.

I don’t clip too many coupons these days, because I like to sleep, but I do use rebate sites. One of my favorites is Checkout 51.

Here’s how Checkout 51 works:

  1. Go shopping. (This is the hardest part.)
  2. Upload your receipt by snapping a picture of it.
  3. Click on the products you bought.
  4. Watch the savings rack up.

That’s it–it’s SUPER simple. It’s especially simple for me because my 10-year-old son has designated himself Family Savings Manager, and he uploads the receipts for me.

Checkout 51 is having a special right now. If you sign up through this link and upload a receipt within the next two weeks, you and I each get $5. That means you get your $5 and I get mine–we don’t have to split it.

You’re not going to be able to retire off your Checkout 51 earnings, but it’s a better life approach than buying lottery tickets.





Guest Post: Make 2016 Your Healthiest Year Yet

Today’s guest writer is Leanne. I first met Leanne at a church in Florida where she was vacationing with her family. We then re-met in Wisconsin at her home church. To understand why she is posting here, you have to know that Leanne is fit and gorgeous. When she casually mentioned that she was 40, I said, Give me your business card!” She did better than that. She shared her story for all of you.

Here is Leanne’s story:


Make 2016 Your Healthiest Year Yet!

Happy 2016 to all of you! At the start of a new year most people have New Year’s Resolutions. I’ve never been a person to have resolutions…I like to think of them more as intentions and goals. As a health and wellness coach, it warms my heart when I hear people say they want to eat healthier, exercise more, lose weight, quit smoking, etc.

My resolution (intention/goal) for 2016 is to help all of you make 2016 your healthiest year yet! Let me share a little bit about what I did to change my health just over two years ago.

For the past 14 years our family has tried to eat more organic/natural foods. By all means we are not perfect, but we certainly try our best. I still enjoy a night out for pizza, birthday cake to celebrate another year, and a dish of ice cream just because. For the first 12 of these 14 years I would typically put on around 10 or so pounds each summer, indulging in the “not so healthy choices” while watching my boys play ball. When school would start in the fall, I went into weight loss mode to lose those unwanted pounds before our Spring Break vacation in March. It would take me about 6 months of literally starving myself (even with healthy food choices) to lose that weight.

Fast forward to September 1, 2013…the day my health changed forever! My dear friend Kim introduced me to some amazing nutrition products that have changed my health in so many ways, and this was the day I started! Because our family stays away from foods with artificial sweeteners, soy protein, stimulants, MSG, just to name a few, I do my research on what I allow into our home. I did my homework on these products, and knew I needed to jump in with both feet!

Besides wanting to lose about 10 pounds, I also had a lot of digestion issues going on. I was beginning to think I had a gluten or dairy allergy. I also felt tired all the time and really didn’t have a lot of energy. Several times a week I would wake up in the middle of the night and not be able to fall back asleep for a couple hours. I was not the happy, healthy, energetic wife and mom that I needed to be for my family. Exercise–I wasn’t doing much of that either because I didn’t have the energy to do it! I was looking for a convenient and cost effective way to feel better.

Nutritional Cleansing is what has allowed me to release 16 pounds of fat in those first months without exercising, gain more energy than I could have ever imagined, sleep like a rock EVERY night, get rid of the digestion issues I once had (no gluten or dairy allergies for me), and feel so much healthier at 38 than I did back in my 20’s. Over the past two years I started exercising and have put on about 8 pounds of lean muscle. I’ll be 41 in a couple weeks, and I am in better shape now than when I was 20!

You might be wondering what nutritional cleansing is….and NO it isn’t a colon cleanse! Nutritional cleansing is a cellular cleanse (whole body) by putting the perfect nutrition into our bodies. Unfortunately, most of the foods we eat (even organic) are nutrient deficient. Our bodies need 90 nutrients (building blocks) on a daily basis, with 60 of them being minerals. Most people are deficient in many of these nutrients…mostly minerals. One of the reasons we are deficient in minerals is because of the introduction of pesticides in our soils. The pesticides not only kill the bad bugs on the plants, but also the ecosystem in the soils that the plants are grown in. If the ecosystem is killed off in the soil, then the minerals are no longer in the soils for the plants to uptake. If the plants are not able to uptake the minerals, then we aren’t getting the minerals when we eat the plants.

Back in 1997 UCLA did a study on women who reported being anemic, yet ate a salad each day primarily from spinach. We all know that spinach is high in iron, and therefore these women should not have been anemic. UCLA compared a sample of spinach they had from 1953 to a sample from 1997. The findings were astounding! A whopping 43 bowls of spinach in 1997 = 1 bowl of spinach in 1953. That 43:1 ratio is the same for ALL the other 59 minerals we need on a daily basis. And…when you don’t have your minerals, even your vitamins can’t be used by the body! All this information made me realize that I wasn’t getting all the nutrients I needed on a daily basis.

The other part to this perfect nutrition is that it helps rid the body of the junk that builds up in our cells. Our bodies are exposed to so many toxins on a daily basis…from the air we breathe, personal care products we use, and so much more. These toxins build up in our cells and basically junk up our body. Our bodies actually put on fat to protect us from the toxins we are exposed to. When we get rid of the impurities in our cells, our body no longer has a need for the fat.

The amazing benefits to nutritional cleansing--it's not a diet, but you'll look great!

Other “side effects” of nutritional cleansing (getting rid of the junk) besides weight loss are:

  • Lose Nasty Cravings
  • Improved Sleep
  • Increased Lean Muscle
  • Healthy Aging
  • Improved Digestion
  • Better Athletic Performance
  • And so much more!

By incorporating nutritional cleansing into my lifestyle, my body is now getting all 90 nutrients it needs on a daily basis. This also goes for the rest of the family because these products are great for them also! Our family also has saved so much money on our overall grocery bill!

Was I skeptical in the beginning? Absolutely I was skeptical, but these products come with a 30-day money back guarantee. I had nothing to lose but those unwanted pounds and my intense carbohydrate cravings! Of course I didn’t need to use that money back offer, because I truly felt amazing after my first 30 days and will never be without these products in my home!

If you are ready to feel the best you have ever felt, now is the perfect time to get started. The company is offering free shipping up to $25 for new customers (on qualifying orders) through January 17, and it would be my honor to coach you to better health! I’m here to help you succeed and reach your health goals with recipes, a private Facebook support group, accountability, and much more! Take a peek at this 6 minute Video called “Are You Toxic?” Find me on Facebook at Leanne Selle; private message me, and I can add you to our private Facebook group for you to do some more homework for yourself! We have 2 different 30-day health challenges starting this month. The first one started January 4 and the second one starts January 18. Join me for both of them! Let’s make 2016 our healthiest year together!

God’s blessings on your 2016!

(920)470-4814 Yearly Membership Review — A Lightweight Heavy Hitter

Read this review from a roadschooling family of 10 and get 50% off!

This post contains affiliate links and opinions. Both are harmless.

One of the biggest aspects of my life is homeschooling my eight kids. I am always on the lookout for ways to simplify that process, especially on the road. With that in mind, my children and I have been testing the Yearly Membership of, an online curricula resource, for a few weeks now. I’m going to yammer on about it for a bit, but first, some background:

As you know, we live in a travel trailer towed by a Chevy Express van. We (we as in my hubby, Steve) tow “home” up mountains and down, around hairpin turns, over harrowing heights. Have you ever seen The Long, Long Trailer with the inimitable Lucille Ball and Dezi Arnaz? Remember the scene where they’re teetering on a mountain top on the brink of disaster because Lovable Lucy overloaded the trailer with rocks?

That’s me–Lovable Lucy. Except instead of a Cuban-American husband, it’s a Filipino-American husband. And instead of rocks, it’s books. And instead of ending up with a box office hit and a big fat check, we ended up with a dead transmission and a big fat bill.

Roadschoolers, ironically, have very little weight allowance for books, which makes schooling a little more challenging. I know–whaaaaa! That’s why we have to get a tad creative with everything from where to store the toilet paper to how to educate eight kids in 240 square feet of space with no weight allowance for los libros, which is Spanish for “the books,” which I had to teach los niños without using los librosNow do I have your sympathy? I didn’t think so.

Enter! is an online curricula resource which offers its members nearly 200 courses plus other perks, and it’s growing like my stomach at a Christmas cookie buffet. The courses are available online through classes, videos, or printable downloads. I’m not going to list every subject you’ll find there because 1) I’m too lazy, and 2) okay, so there is no number 2. Go to the course list and see for yourself, or see what’s available grade by grade.

Wow, right?! A family could use as a supplement to their studies or as an entire curriculum. That saves a ton of space and trailer weight, people.

How have we been using

I’m so glad you asked, because I’ve been itching to tell you about the Tinkers Club, partly because I love saying “tinkers.” Tinkers tinkers tinkers! (If you say it real fast it sounds like stinkers.) My son (who just turned 10 last week) is loving the Tinkers Club. It’s all about inventing, so he’s gettin’ down and dirty with tools and junque we scrounge up at thrift stores (because, as you know, The Simple Homemaker tries not to keep junk on hand, so, ironically, now we have to hunt for other people’s junk). He is so into it that he was thrilled to receive safety goggles for Christmas–safety goggles, people! And I wasted money on Legos.

We are also just beginning the Charlotte Mason preschool study written by homeschool mom Brittney Jordan. As you know we are not into an intense preschool program, nor am I interested in spending money to teach my child to count. But being child number 7 in a roadschooling family means that someday the you-specific activities and the nature study get pushed to the background in favor of group activities and an 8-mile hike. This ideal program ensures that little Ellie and I (and our many tag-alongs) are doing something in nature together, in books together, and in handicrafts together each week…key word: together. Love it!

This week’s topic is snow, which offers and interesting approach to nature study. I think I still have snow stuck down the back of my neck–family snowball fight not pictured.

I’m also setting my older children on the task of translating the Spanish Bible stories for Spanish-speaking preschoolers. Why? Because I can, and because they don’t speak Swahili or Latvian, but if yours do, then by all means check out the Latvian and other foreign languages! They don’t have enough Spanish for my liking, but there is Latvian!

Here’s my favorite aspect of

My first baby girl was born, like, yesterday, and last week she turned 19. That’s years! Time flies…fast…like a fast flying thingie. We did some pretty fun stuff in school (apparently not enough vocab study if this writer is saying “thingie” and “stuff”), but if I could do it over again, I would have had more lessons that she really wanted to study and fewer that I felt we had to know to appease the social service workers that never showed up at our door.

With, I feel comfortable am totally excited about letting my children pick a couple of courses at a time that they want to study (after Bible and math are finished). I’m confident that they will be learning something. It may not be the same things I learned in school and promptly forgot as soon as the test was over because I never used it in real life and wasn’t interested in it in the first place, but that’s totally okay! That said, I might “make” my 19-year-old take this for her writing business:

I don’t love everything about

For example, I absolutely do not like their cute little drawing of the ark for the preschool flood study. The flood was not cute, and the ark was not cutesie. For the love of all things truth, draw the ark its actual size in proportion to an elephant, so kids could see that a lot of elephants could fit on that behemoth. Kids would have an easier time supporting their beliefs when (not if) they are attacked if they had the truth in their heads. Thousands of people drowning–so not cutesie.

I also don’t like the amount of clicking required to get to the course, but they’re in the process of fixing that, so forget I said anything. In fact, I’m crossing this off right now.

And there will be things you don’t like, which is why it’s totally great that there are nearly 200 courses–pick what you like and leave the rest…like how you pick the M&Ms out of the trail mix and leave the raisins. ‘Fess up. You know you do it.

Technical details for my fellow roadschoolers:

For us travelers, internet connection and data limits are issues. While some of these courses are videos that will consume data, others are made of printable or downloadable lesson plans that can be downloaded at the library or RV park and stored on your computer to be pulled up whenever you want and wherever you are–even boondocking.

The studies do not require that you buy books, but access to a library does help for some additional recommended resources. Obviously, that part is not ideal for the traveler, but, well, read the paragraph about The Long, Long Trailer and you’ll agree with me that not having access to all the books a person would like to have is better than plunging off a mountain peak with your entire rig, family, and collection of rocks books.

Preserve a Memory for Mom (and Maybe Win $2500 in the Process)

This post contains affiliate links, meaning I make a commission if you order through these links. My policy is that I’ve gotta like a company a whole lot to tell you about them. Any profit I make at TSHM buys homeschool materials for my seven “road scholars.” If you don’t want me to profit, delete your cookies before purchasing. Mmmm…cookies.

Make a Book For and About Your Favorite Person (and maybe win $2500 in the process)

I’m always telling you to make everyday memories with your loved ones, to simplify your life so you have time to live your life, to prioritize people over possessions, over passions, even over popcorn and pie.

Today I’m sharing a company that can help you preserve some of those memories you create. Why now? Mother’s Day is just around the corner, Father’s Day and Grandparent’s Day are nipping at its heels, I’m sure your anniversary and a few birthdays are in there somewhere, and then, BAM, it’s Christmas!

The company I want to tell you about is called Blurb. I’ve been a Blurb affiliate for a while now, and I have always kinda sorta deleted all their emails as they came in. But then I saw a book that my cousin made through Blurb and wow-holy-cow was that ever gorgeous!

So I started paying attention to the Blurb emails, and wow-holy-cow-and-its-calf, those people are always having sales! They’re like Kohls!

Finally, I checked them out for myself, and wow-holy-herd-of-cattle, they are organized, user-friendly, and offer quality products.

What does this have to do with your Mama?

Mother’s Day and, BAM, Christmas are just around the corner. If your mama is anything like this mama, she doesn’t want stuff, except for maybe a new slotted spoon to replace the one small hands left behind in the sand dunes of Idaho where it masqueraded as a shovel for a day. Oh, and your mama wants chocolate, the 85% dark that doesn’t give her…ahem…aroma.

Why not give her a personalized book instead, like one of these:

  • Compile her favorite recipes and create a cookbook.
  • Gather memories from all her children and grandchildren with pictures and drawings.
  • Write a letter-book to her. It could be called, simply, “Dear Mom.”
  • Is she a poet or an artist or a great story teller? Gather her work into a book.
  • Make a photo album of something special to her–a wedding, a trip, time with you.
  • Select pictures of her favorite pet and write about him, or include blank lines for her to fill in.
  • Write a children’s book in which she is the star. Let your children illustrate it.
  • Put together a memory book of a missed loved one.

The sky is the limit. Well, actually, your imagination (with the creative help of Pinterest and Blurb) is the limit, which might be higher than the sky.

Remember, I said they’re always having a sale? Always may be a slight exaggeration, but only slight.

Here are the current Blurb deals:

  1. Save a whopping 15% on printed books through April 30. That’s soon, I know, and you’re busy making memories, so I’ll update this with new deals as soon as I hear about them.
  2. Save 30% on “My Favorite Person” books through May 31. If you write your own My Favorite Person book (why not Mom!) and enter it by the deadline (4/28 or 05/31, depending), you could win $2500.

Here’s a little video explaining the contest. Videos are fun, aren’t they? Make some popcorn.

Why are you still here? Go make your book…or popcorn..or both!

But first..what are your ideas for personalized books?

I’m focusing on ebooks next week, including some super deals (like a mega-bundle of $800 worth of ebooks and bonuses for under $30), organizational tips, and gifting strategies. But those posts are for people who want to read ebooks. This one is for people who want to write ebooks…people like me…and maybe you…but definitely me. Here’s why.

My story:

Six years ago I wrote an ebook, and it sat and it sat and it sat on my computer, never going anywhere. Pbbbth. I had no idea what to do with it after writing it, so the poor ol’ thing just sat. Meanwhile, ebook ideas flitted in and out of my head like caffeinated fruit flies, but I couldn’t catch any of them. I sure could have used this:

An Online Course to Help Make Your Ebook a Profitable Reality

I can write, but I need help making the ebook happen. That’s why I snagged this 10-week online course. I’m not good at sticking to a ten-week anything, so the clincher for me was the lifetime access to the course resources.

I really don’t like spending money, but I even more don’t like (did I say I could write)…I like even less the pile of ebook ideas sitting forlornly on my desktop. I figured $17 was a small price to pay to unleash my crazy ideas on the world…and with my discount code SIMPLE5, you bring the price down to $12. 

Plus there’s a money-back guarantee, and those always give me a warm and fuzzy. Ah, warm and fuzzy.

What do you receive for $12?

You receive lifetime access to the ten-week course which includes everything you need to come up with an idea, write it, develop it, and market it, including working with affiliates. I’m only on week three, but to me it seems far more effective than letting an ebook or pile of ideas languish on my desktop.

I’m using it for myself, but I’m also using it as a homeschool course for my teens. I can’t wait to see what they write and how well they market it to add to their college funds.

You know, I’d tell you more, but if you’re truly interested, you can check out more info and the table of contents here, and if you’re not interested, you haven’t even read this far…so I’m talking to myself. Hello again, Self. How’s it goin’? Oh, fine. And you?

The discount code is good today only, October 31. If you’re interested, or you know someone who might enjoy this as a Christmas gift, hurry scurry over with discount code SIMPLE5 to get the ebook ball rolling today!

Do you have an ebook idea bouncing around in your head?

Natural Mothering Super Deal

Are you getting tired of these mega-ebook bundle sales yet? Yes? No? I started thinking this was overkill with the last one, and wasn’t going to participate in this one.

BUT…then I saw a book I had already been considering, a few of my favorites (like Crock On), and a handful of others that would be great for other people I know…and, well, I thought maybe you would find some treasures that would benefit you as well.

Please, though, before you hit the “buy now” button, please read my post “When a Good Deal Isn’t” to make sure you’re buying for the right reasons and not throwing your money into a bottomless, money-hungry, back-biting pit of financial despair. (Yes, I said “please” twice in one sentence on purpose! Your simplified, financially responsible life is more important to me than my commission!)

If you do make a (carefully thought-out) purchase, please know that I am an affiliate for this bundle and will therefore receive a commission. My homeschooling fund thanks you heartily. 🙂

Finally, please note that I certainly do not agree with everything in these ebooks. In fact, there are a few philosophies in direct opposition to how we raise our family. So, again, I hemmed and hawed about presenting this to you. Still hemming and hawing. Listen, I do what works best for my family which is hardly ever not always according to a book…except the Bible. Good book, that one. If anything you read in the ebooks or freebies goes against your faith or the advice of older wiser parents (I don’t highly value parental advice from someone who has never gone through the teen years and successfully raised a few kids to adulthood.), disregard it!

I’m not doing a very good job of selling this bundle, am I? Let me turn the reins over to guest blogger Kresha of Nourishing Joy!
