Six Ways to Save Time and Money When Traveling to Amusement Parks With Your Family With Chase Freedom Unlimited!

It finally happened! We've been working much of this year at traveling as a family and enjoying family time together on road trips. However, this was all building up to our big goal of the year. We are using the tips that we have been sharing in blog posts, saving the cash back we earned from our Chase Freedom Unlimited card, and are heading to Disneyland in Southern California!

We have wanted to go back for years and with our family travel goal this year it made perfect sense. Not only are we Disney fans but we love going to amusement parks in general, so for our final post celebrating reaching our 2019 goal we are sharing six ways that we saved time and money when taking our family to Disney, or any other amusement park! Enjoy the photos from reaching our family goal and remember that if your family goal includes taking a trip to some of the top theme parks around the country, you will want to save this post, so you can spend more time and money on stuff that matters, and less time waiting in line.

I was sent these appliances to use by Instant Pot, but was not paid for including them in this blog post.
3 Christmas Desserts to Make In Your Instant Pot, Instant Ace Plus Blender, and Instant Vortex Plus Air Fryer Oven

Christmas time can be full of rushing your kids from place to place, and trying to attend endless parties where you always need to bring something to eat. But if we can simplify things Christmas can also be one of the most joyous times of year! That is why we decided to come up with not one but THREE Instant Pot holiday dessert recipes that you can easily make for just your family, or a gathering of friends and coworkers. 


The first recipe is a Christmas Wreath Bundt Cake that we made in our new Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus. What? A cake in an Instant Pot? Is this madness? No this is efficiency! With 48 presets to make a recipe with the push of a button, the Instant Pot Duo Evo Plus is not only perfect for appetizers and dinner, but for Christmas cakes as well! This is one of the tastiest and easiest chocolate cakes you will ever make. In addition, we also created holiday themed desserts in the Instant Vortex Plus 10Q Air Fryer Oven and the Instant Ace Plus Blender.  

Dr. Seuss The Grinch Who Stole Christmas School Lunch Recipe Ideas

Monday, December 2, 2019


One of our most cherished Christmas tales is Dr. Seuss' The Grinch Who Stole Christmas! You and your family might be able to relate to this. It is not only fun and imaginative, it also is a classic with a great message. I have done a few other Grinch lunches, but this time around I wanted to try to come up some recipe ideas that were closer to the original story. The problem is that I can't really draw...other than stick figures. But I found out that the details of the Grinch's face are pretty easy to recreate. So if you can't draw like me, this is perfect for you!

What do you think, would your kids like to get this lunch? My kids loved the almonds but the celery was a bit more of a challenge. Keep reading to find out how I made it and what ideas you can use for your own kids' lunches!

Sunday, November 24, 2019

Who doesn't love Baby Yoda? My kids and I have been watching The Mandalorian on Disney+ and are so excited for every Friday to get here so we can watch a new episode! Growing up, one of my favorite characters was Boba Fett, I was even the famous bounty hunter for Halloween one year. So needless to say I have loved this series.

My kids are off of school this week so I didn't make them a full meal. However, I just had to make a Baby Yoda sandwich (Yes I know it isn't actually Yoda, but until we find out its name Baby Yoda will have to do). Actually, there is more to it than just a sandwich so read below to find out what I used in each part of the Jedi snack! FYI, if you haven't watched The Mandalorian yet, you really should check it out on Disney Plus!

3 Easy Ways That Kids Can Help With the Laundry And 1 Way That They Absolutely Shouldn't

Is there something in your life that you can always count on being there for you? You know what that is for our family? Laundry. Laundry is always here for us through thick and thin. More specifically laundry is always waiting to be done. Every. Single. Day. Can you relate to that?

The thing about a job, chore, or responsibility that never stops is that sometimes you can miss the important details. For example, with laundry our family tends to lean towards the efficient rather than what sometimes might be best. It can be easier to just get the laundry done myself rather than teaching (and sometimes badgering) the kids to help, but it’s worth the extra effort now for what is best long term.
3 Easy Ways That Kids Can Help With the Laundry And 1 Way That They Absolutely Shouldn't

This is why we put systems in place for our entire family to help with laundry. Our kids make 90% of it so why shouldn't they give back a little, right? We have done this for a few years now and wanted to share our three tips that can get your kids helping with the daunting laundry task and one area where they absolutely should not help. We would love to know your tips as well!
