Off To College Items I Would Even Buy!

I may be way past my college days, but I find myself taking a glance at the suggested items on Amazon’s Off To College page.
Of course, they have your typical dorm room essentials, but some of the techie gadgets and portable electronics I would even buy.  Check out my little suggestive list below.

Waterproof Laptop Day Pack

This MOMUVO back pack has a wide open top, with plenty of pockets and zippers to keep pens, pencils, laptop, and small purse inside.
It’s also waterproof, with a USB charging port, and an inside pocket to hold your portable power charger.  (not included)

Portable Charger 38800mAh, LCD Display Power Bank

This portable charger from RGVOTA has 4 USB outputs, both USB & C inputs, and for those of us who can’t see anymore, the digital battery life display is simply perfect for my old eyes.

Super Tip:  Don’t forget to get short lightening cables, for the power charger above!

COMFEE’ Mini Fridge

Ya got to have an organized fridge to put your food and drinks in, and this vintage style, 3.3 cu ft COMFEE Mini Fridge does just that.
It comes with drink holders, a three temp adjustable freezer, and clear storage bin on the bottom.

Nostalgia Retro 0.7 Cu. Ft. 700-Watt Microwave

Just keeping it different with this small retro microwave! 

Portable Washing Machine

You wouldn’t have to ask me twice about getting this tiny, portable, washing machine.  It’s perfect for a college student who forgets to wash a few things, which they will.
It’s about 12 inches high and wide, and you fold it up when you’re done.

Sagler Portable Drying Clothes Rack

I own this drying rack, and did a video review here:  Sagler Portable Drying Clothes Rack

Portable Shower Caddy With Phone Holder

These kids today take their phones into the shower, and this waterproof shower caddy has a slot for the phone, and it’s touchable.  (I might get this for the next time I take a cruise).     

LapGear Home Office Lap Desk

Do kids even sit at their desks anymore?  If not here’s a lap desk with phone holder, mouse pad, and air flow cushion so it stays cool.

DTK 3 Tier Utility Rolling Cart with Cover Board

For added small space storage, 3 tier rolling storage rack is worth looking at.  It’s got a cover board on top, cup holders, side clips, and can hold up to 200 pounds.

CARTMAN 39 Piece Tool Set

And finally, don’t forget the tool set.  This CARTMAN 39 piece set has all the basic tools needed to assemble the items above.

How My Blogging Life Has Changed Now That I Turned 50

It’s true, as I sit here writing this post, I’ve realized that my blogging life has changed since I’ve turned 50. 


What I mean is, that the products and services that I have currently been looking at are geared towards. dare I say, an older crowd, because this lady isn’t a spring chicken anymore.  LOL  


Now, that doesn’t mean that I’m hot a hip chick, but I definitely have some different obstacles and passions than I did when I was younger, and I am embracing this new me, and I thought that I would share what’s going on below: 


(Note: The links in this post are affiliate links, and I will be compensated when you make a purchase by clicking through my links. Read my disclosure policy here .)





For instance, I’m not a young mom anymore, my kids are in their early 20’s and out the door, and my hubby and I are feeling a little more freedom. 

In fact, we are going on our first Carnival cruise, and celebrating our 25th anniversary.  I can’t wait to share our experience with everyone, and of course the different ways that I’ve already saved….like booking my trip through:

Ebates Coupons and Cash Back

I’ve booked our cruise, hotels, and car through RAKUTEN, formerly EBATES, and the best part is, that I will get some cash back just in time for the holiday season.




Thinning hair, fine lines, and wrinkles.  Yeppers, that’s me, and thank goodness there are ways to combat these with some wonderful products. 

I am obsessed with my new hair topper, and have really enjoyed sharing this all of my family and friends.  It’s so real looking they ask me if I have my topper on, now how cool is that?   

Check out my fun Wigged Out page on Amazon.




Whew this has been a tough one for me.  I’ve had three surgeries over the past year and half, and finding ways to keep going and feeling good has been a high priority. 

My hubby and I like to share our body aches and pains each morning, but it’s important to stay positive and take advantage of items that are helpful. 

Here’s my SuperGirlSavings page, where you can see some of the products that I have bought on Amazon through the years.

Lordy, this list just keeps on growing.  🙂   


I still use coupons, savings apps, and online sales & codes as much as I can.   

One of my favorite ways to save is a money-saving app called IBOTTA

It has tons of offers, not only on grocery items, but places your going to buy online from anyway, like Amazon, Groupon, and Wal-mart. 

Heck, if your going to buy, you might as well get a little cash back, and use it for a rainy day or holidays. 

Also, you can build a team of friends and family, and the more you all use it, the more money everyone makes.  Cha-ching!

So, if your interested and you would like to be my IBOTTA buddy click on the pic below, and earn $10 for just trying.  



So, this is just a tidbit of how my blogging life has changed, and since I’m still a kid at heart, I will always try to stay a hip chick, and share trendy ways to save. 

Thank you so much for stopping by, and as always I appreciate each and every one of you. 

So, here’s to the future, and making my fifties as fabulous as possible.    


How To Blog When Life Sucks

As I sit here contemplating about what to write, I searched for, “July topics to write about” in my google box. One particular topic stood out, “Tell your story about where your life is right now”, and if I’m being honest, my life simply sucks!

Now, before I begin my self-pity party, let me start by saying that I am probably one of the most positive people you will every meet, and I always try to see the bright side of things, but right now I’m treading water.

So, here we go,!  (By the way, I’m not going to worry about paragraphs and all that writing stuff, because I don’t feel like it)!!

I’ve had three surgeries over the past year, knee, hip, and recently sinus.  All of this has caused me to be in chronic pain, everyday, and all the lovely anxiety that comes along with it.

I haven’t written a blog post in about six weeks.

I have huge medical bills coming out my arse.

My house looks like crap inside and out, and I can’t physically do the things that I love to do, like gardening, DIY projects, or simply go for a walk.

I’m sure I could list more, but I know many of you out there get my point.  🙂

Now what does this have to do with blogging, and how the hell can I help anyone else who is going the same thing?

Well, I don’t know if I can, other than to say, that I look around me and find the things that I am grateful for:

I have a roof over my head, food in the fridge, and gas in my car.

I have wonderful, supportive, and caring friends, co-workers, and family!

I have two great puppies that give me unconditional love.

And, a blog that is very forgiving, because even if I don’t write I can see that people still visit me.  And that is really cool.

So, what’s my advise when it comes to blogging when your life is in turmoil?

Relax, your blog is still there, waiting for you when your ready.

Get social, and share some other bloggers ideas that your audience and the author will appreciate too.

Find some inspiration and healing tips from other bloggers who have fallen on hard times.  The majority of the blogging community really is there to help you get through this.

And finally, recognize that everything isn’t ok, and see what you can do to improve your life & blogging attitude.

For me, I reached out to my doc to help with all the anxiety that I’ve been having.

I search for therapeutic products and their reviews from others to help me with my ailments.

And finally, just sharing this post feels really good!

Thank you for letting me rant and rave, and hopefully I’ve helped some others who are going through the same thing.

All inspirational posts and comments are welcomed here, and I actually feel like my frown has turned upside down.  Have a super day everyone!
