Welcome to my recommendations page. Here you’ll find products, services, and companies I use or know are valuable. This way you don’t have to search for that blog post that may have referenced it. All in one happy page! I personally have used and/or support the businesses or services on this recommendations page. I would not recommend anything I wouldn’t myself use.
I’ll continue to add to this page as I grow and the site grows, so right now you’ll see a lot of information for how I got this site to where it is at. I’ll be adding information for other products, services and blogs I believe as well. Keep checking back!
Disclosure: There are some affiliate links below and I may receive commissions for purchases made through links in this post, but these are all products I highly recommend. I won’t put anything on this page that I haven’t verified and/or personally used.
If you’re just starting to get to know me, you’ll know I’m a fan of organizing things, even though there are plenty of moments of chaos, I’m big on finding ways to keep things organized. One of the easier ways to keep things scheduled, including the family and doctor’s appointments, schedule’s, assignment due dates, playdates, etc. is using Cozi. Color code each family member, set up reminders, shopping lists, birthday reminders all from one convenient app. Best part, it’s free!
Get those creative juices flowing and make stuff! One of my favorite things to do is make homemade items, cards, decorations, t-shirts and more. It helps relieve the stress and gets your brain thinking. Cricut is pretty amazing and constantly developing and improving their products and services. I’ve owned the Cricut Explore One and then upgraded to the Cricut Maker and just love them both! Sign up for the Cricut access and get tons of fonts and graphics included with the subscription to enhance your creative experience. Find free files online, download cut files from Etsy. It’s such a great way to be creative and create amazing pieces.
