Before you ask, let me just address some frequently asked questions that I, as a mother to 3, soon to be 4, have encountered.

How a Muggle Learned to Enjoy a Harry Potter Movie

Don’t Want to Give Supermarkets Your Number? Use the ’80s Song ’867-5309′

Many grocery stores have rewards cards. You've seen them -- in exchange for letting the store datamine your purchasing behavior, you get discounts off your bill.

Some people, though, are creeped out by the whole thing and feel it's an invasion of their privacy, so they skip those discounts. But they may not have to anymore. Savvy shoppers have figured out a way to get the cheaper food and ward off Big Brother.

Upgrade? Maybe You Should Wait

Stand Alone
GPS Navigators vs. GPS Smartphone Apps

Most modern smartphones have built-in maps and GPS units. But those built-in apps don't give turn-by-turn audio directions, like those you may be used to from a dedicated GPS. You can buy apps that give turn by turn directions, but they tend to be expensive, and require up-front costs or monthly subscription fees.

It’s Summertime!

In case you didn’t know from the 100 degree temperatures, it’s Summer time!! For me that means all 3 of my children are at home, for the most part, 24 hours a day. This can be good and bad.

Some of the things I love about Summer include staying in bed until after 8 a.m. Granted, I usually don’t sleep past 6:30, but I do get to lie in bed and snuggle with my babies and try to catch an extra 10 minutes of sleep while they watch cartoons! I also love going swimming. It’s one of the only ways to let the kids expend some major energy while keeping cool and it also usually also guarantees a really good naptime!
