Save with Groupon Coupons and have money for more! #ad #Spon

 This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

Do you coupon?  If you do (more so if you don't) let me introduce you to Groupon Coupon. Have you heard?  I haven't until now and I am thankful for it.   I tried to coupon, it did not work for me.  Having to go get a paper, cut the coupons and then remember to not only take them, but also USE them at the store just seemed to put me in a frazzled state of mind, so after a few attempts, I decided saving that $5 was just not worth my sanity.  That was before I learned of Groupon Coupons.  Talk about an easy way to save money... and its FREE to use!  Keep reading to learn more!  
The day my dad actually used Groupon Coupons, was the best day ever!  

Recently, my dad was headed to go buy new khakis.  He is very set in his ways and is not one to use a coupon.  I knew this, so I headed over to the site, typed in JCPenney and then sent a screen shot of the offer that was going on that day. Let me just tell you, he later sent me a shot of his receipt... he ACTUALLY used it and saved a good amount of money.  It really is that easy! 
Save money with Groupon Coupons and you can spend more time making memories!  

As a mom, I love knowing that I can shop in the store or online and quickly access coupons that will help save me money.  Saving money is a big draw, the ease of using it comes in a close second!   I am always looking for great deals. (That's what you do when your baby girl is baby number 6 for your husband!!!!  Christmas can get expensive!) I am always looking to save here and there and you can too.  As you save money with Groupon Coupons at places like Advance Auto Parts, you can plan to do more over the summer!!!   As I said, I am always looking for deals!   Not just for Christmas, but in every day occasions too!  Any event coming up you want to save for?  Take a look, you will be surprised!   Fathers Day is almost here, so you might be looking for that great gift, look at places like Zoro Tools.  Know a recent graduate?  Shutterfly would make a great keepsake gift of their senior year!  

Have you used Groupon Coupons before?  Where did you shop at?

Mamma Chia - #SeedYourSoul

Mamma Chia is a product line that is new to me.  Let me be honest, for the longest time, I thought "chia" was just something for the "chia pets" I did not realize it was a little seed that was healthy for you!   I was recently sent several products from the Mamma Chia line and I learned that a big majority in me liking a food or not has a WHOLE lot to do with the texture.  I will share more about the products in a minute, but I wanted to point out...  I LOVED the chia bars, they were full of flavor. I was not really a fan of the drinks (or the pouches) though.  It was weird, I loved the flavor of them (*especially the one with ginger in it) but I could not get past the taste to drink the whole bottle.  No one needs to worry about us wasting any of it, because Marc really took to liking them and enjoyed the whole product line while working!

Since we were sent a whole selection of  products from Mamma Chia.  As soon as I saw the granola-chia clusters, I knew that I wanted to make us yogurt parfaits for breakfast one morning.  

I really liked how they were super crunchy and stayed crunchy even mixed with the yogurt.  Marc thought they were a bit too crunchy for his liking.  

As I mentioned, I was not a fan (loved the flavor, not the texture) of the pouches.  Marc loved them and loved the convenience of them.  He could open it and enjoy while at work or even going to/from work.  He actually enjoyed them more than the bars.  Once I told him how much more of a healthy benefit they were versus others (bullet points above) he wants to add them to his daily lunch!  

I really enjoyed the bars.  They were chewy and crunchy, full of flavor in each bite!  Looks like it worked out great for us, as we both got to enjoy something while leaving the best to the other!   

If you are looking for a great snack (road trips and gym mornings) you will want to give these products a try!   Remember to try out their drinks too, as Marc still talks about how great they are!    
Are you a fan of chia seed products? If so, what do you use them for? (I need more ideas to use them here!)
