More On Straight Talk!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

What would you say if I told you that it was possible to cut your cellular phone bill in half? What if I also said you could also do this with no contracts, no surprise bills and no credit checks to strike marks against you? Would you believe me if I said on top of that there are no activation, reactivation, or termination fees?

Well it’s time to believe and check out Straight Talk! Did you know the average person spends about $81 per month on their service? Smart Talk is only $30 with the “All You Need Plan” – and that’s with 1,000 minutes, 1,000 texts and 30 MB of web data, considered the plan for heavy users.

They even have an unlimited Monthly service for $45 a month! That’s including unlimited calls, text, picture messaging and web use. Or, you can go one step further and pay a flat $499 for a whole year of unlimited service, averaging $41.53 per month. I love the idea of feeling richer with Straight Talk because I can cut my cell phone bill in half.

Have you ever really wanted something, but couldn't decide if it was really worth the money - or if it really performed they way that it said it would?

I know there have been plenty of times this has happened to me.  Then I start searching the Internet like crazy looking up reviews on the product.  It seems to be a long process before I actually decide what to do.  Especially since there is such a wide range of reviews, some being completely bogus.

I have found a site called What they do is they pick the best of the best in electronics, appliances, and services by comparing professional reviews, then they give you a list of categories to chose from. After clicking on that category you can see what item in that category is most highly recommended. MyReviewsNow offers online shoppers with a wide variety of online shopping choices and product reviews all in one location.

I for one am excited to have come across this site.  It will save me an incredible amount of time when searching for items or services I am interested in purchasing, allowing me to get the best quality based on what other "real" people have said about it.

Nature's Hand Granola {Review}

I am addicted to eating yogurt with granola every morning, that's why I was very excited when I was approached by Nature's Hand to review their newly formulated granola products.

Nature's Hand has been around for 40 years with their granola products.  While many granola products are loaded with preservatives, sugar, sodium or trans fats, Nature's Hand decided to go back to the drawing board and reintroduce their granola products as all-natural.  Meaning, it only uses only premium all-natural ingredients like soy oil, which is full of fiber, protein and antioxidants.  Plus it is low in sugar and contains no artificial colors or flavors, preservatives, cholesterol, trans fats or sodium.

I tend to eat foods that are either organic or natural and low in sugar.  Granola can be very high in sugar content, so looking for one that is great tasting and low in sugar can be quite the challenge.  So having the opportunity to try Nature's Hand was an added bonus.  They were nice enough to send me two of my favorite varieties of granola, I chose Wild Blueberry and French Vanilla Almond.

I was was very impressed with taste of Nature's Hand granola.  Of the two, Wild Blueberry was definitely my favorite.  Not to say the French Vanilla Almond was not delicious too ~ but I'm a huge blueberry fan!  My youngest daughter loves the granola as well and eats it right of the bag or in a bowl by itself.

Nature's Hand comes in a variety of flavors besides Wild Blueberry and French Vanilla Almond, it comes in Original Vanilla Almond, Cranberry Delight, Raisin Hazelnut, Cinnamon Apple, and Maple Pecan.  Also, it is very reasonably priced at $4.99.  For more information, or to take advantage of their special offers they run every now and then, visit their website at Nature's Hand or like the on Facebook.

A big thank you to Nature's Hand  for making this review possible. Although I did receive a a couple bags of thier granola,,  all opinions shared are 100% mine and honest.

Mat Kearney "Young Love" {Review}

I have 3 young children - my oldest is 8, and then I have the 3 year old twins. We have been fully ensconced in music by the Wiggles, Laurie Berkner and Ralph for so many years that I don't even know what is "popular" any more!

One of my goals is to start introducing my children to more varieties of music, I have been rather weary of this given some of the language and content of many popular songs these days.  Since my oldest does know of the popular songs and does hear them through school/friends, I feel I need to know what she's listening to and get to know the different artists for both of our sakes.

Having an opportunity, through One2One Network, to review Mat Kearney's Young Love could not have come at a better time.  I have to say that not only do I love this CD but my kids do too!  My 3 year old's especially love this CD (they tend to want to hear something they like over and over again), my 8 year old is getting a little worn out from it but still engages in the music when it is on.

The songs have a great beat, #1 Hey Mama, #2 Ships In The Night and #5 Chasing The Light are the real popular sections my children and I enjoy - although I don't think there is a bad song on the CD.  All my kids clap to the first song and all know and sing the words to the rest.

There are little snippets of the songs you can listen to and purchase at Mat Keaney's iTunes site.  Also, if you go the Mat Kearney's Facebook page you can see the video for Hey Mama!  Also, feel free to visit Mat Kearney's website for even more information - including locations and dates of where he will be playing live.

A big thank you to One2One Network for making this review possible. Although I did receive a copy of the CD Mat Kearney Young Love and all opinions shared are 100% mine and honest.

We dream of paying for our children's education
Chicago, IL
September 1, 2011

Too much debt has not allowed us to plan for our children's education thus far. Our dream is to have enough money set aside for our three children so they can go to college without having to use loans. Allowing them to graduate from college debt free is such an incredible way to start off life as a working adult!
