Saving Money While Traveling

Traveling expenses tend to add up quickly, but here are some tips that could help save you money!

Big travel savings and benefits:
1. Ask for an upgrade. - If they have bigger rooms/first class sits open, sometimes they’ll bump you with no charge!
2. Offer to be bumped. - Just knowing you’re flexible will make them want to upgrade you if possible on your new flight.
3. If you've served in military, you're on honeymoon or you're 55 plus, let them know!
4. When renting a car, ask for the cheapest car they have. - Getting the lowest-priced car available and showing up super-early in the morning can garner you a free upgrade to a bigger car.
5. Offer candy & gum to flight crew. - A travel coach handed out chocolate to the gate agents and flight crew & got a better coach seat or upgrade half the time.


Happy traveling! Where are you headed this summer?

Just Some Cleaning Tips

I found a few tips to a faster, better clean:

- Clean your candles with panty hose

- Rub your facet with waxed paper to prevent water spots/finger prints

- Clean old paintings with a bagel

- Pour a packet of lemonade kool-aid and run through dish washer to get rid of lime/iron stain

- Fill tub with a few inches of the hottest water you can get - it will double the effectiveness of cleaners.

 

Do you have any tips to add?

Three Phrases For Kids

I found an article written by a parenting coach about the 3 phrases for kids! I started implementing it in my family a few weeks ago and I'm already starting to see the benefits! 

1. "Next Time" - the next time your child breaks a rule, crosses a line, or makes any mistake, instead of punishing them, talk about what happened, why it happened and what we can do better next time. Children are encouraged to strove for improvement in the future. 

2. "In This Family" - to help your children define their family's morals and practices. 

3. How Did You Do That" - whenever your child creates a work of art. This is good for their memory and language as well as their story-telling skills. Your child will delight when you show genuine interest in their creations.
