What is Fun2Find Deals?

Fun2Find Deals is a site where you can find the best deals on a little bit of everything! I have shared deals for dish soap, kids’ toys & games, lawn equipment, furniture, trash bags, retractable dog leashes, paper goods and everything in between! Since deals move really quickly I post the most to my Facebook Page as it’s the easiest way to find them quickly for you! Make sure you have your settings on “see all” so you don’t miss a deal. I’d love to have you come like my page!

Why did you start Fun2Find Deals?

My husband and I are constantly looking for the best deals on everything and I was always sharing them on my personal page. We often send deals to each other that we like. I started sharing the deals I found on my personal Facebook page, but that seemed annoying for my friends who didn’t want to see a bunch of products for sale. I thought it would make sense to start a public page where I could share more deals and not post as many to my personal page. I’ve actually wanted to do this for a long time, but only got up the nerve to really go for it in the last year!

The Fun2Find Deals Twins and I having fun!

I’m excited about deal finding because I feel like we can afford more toys and activities for the boys that we wouldn’t be able to if we were paying full price.


How do you find the deals?

While some of the deals are just things I randomly find while searching for things we need, some of them are sent to me by specific vendors. I weed through the codes they send and find ones that work and that would be helpful! It can be really time consuming, but it’s also really fun when I find an awesome deal! I also frequently share deals I find as I’m searching for things for our family.

Does it cost your readers any extra to buy through your links?

No! I am part of several programs that essentially pay me a tiny percentage of the sale for advertising for them! I make pennies on most sales, but it doesn’t change the price for you at all! It helps me and doesn’t affect your price point at all!

Do you buy ALL the deals yourself?

Haha! No! We live primarily on my husband’s income and have a budget, so there’s no way I could buy them all! I do like to try out the clothes I find that are highly discounted, but even then I can’t buy ALL of them! On the flip side, I try to only post deals that have great reviews if I haven’t had a chance to try them myself! My goal is to offer quality items. I don’t earn anything if a product is returned, so it doesn’t help me to share a terrible product that everyone is going to hate.

How do you make it “fun” for everyone?

I do lots of giveaways on my Facbeook page and blog! See the current giveaway here!

Is this your primary job?

Nope! My primary job is of course being mom to my 3 year old twins, and growing our little one on the way, but I also work as a Registered Nurse! I’ve worked with adults and on a pediatrics unit. Right now I take care of the tiny preemies in the NICU.

When you have 2 seconds to yourself what do you usually end up doing with your time?

Hmmm. I often take that time to pluck my eyebrows. Lol! It’s comforting to feel just a little better about myself. They are sorely overlooked. I need to paint my nails, too. Someday I want to start reading again.

I have the best helpers!

What’s your favorite part of the job?

Definitely finding an amazing deal that everyone loves! I also appreciate that I can do this on my own time when my boys are playing or after they go to bed at night. It’s definitely a balancing act trying to find the best deals and to also stop and make time for my family when I need to.

What’s one final thing you want to share with your readers?

I couldn’t do this without you! My page grows by word of mouth the best, so when you share my Facebook page or tell others about my blog you’re helping me out just as much as if you buy through my page! Also, if you buy *anything* through my links I earn a small commission, not just the original linked item. This helps me so much! I also have a page on my blog called My Favorite Stores and you can shop from there anytime and I will earn commission! Also, if you find a great deal, let me know! I’m just one person so it’s awesome when my readers help me out!

Thanks so much for reading! Don’t forget to follow me on Facebook for the best deals!

Blogging. Trying Deals. Taking Pictures. It’s not as easy as they make it seem!

Blogging. I’ve always loved it! I’ve blogged for years and years… I started back in high school when I tore my ACL and had surgery. I named my knee brace George. 

Since then I’ve blogged my college life and playing basketball. I’ve sporadically blogged getting married and now our life with twins.

I’ve enjoyed it all! 

But there’s one thing I think is going to take a while to get used to! Lots of bloggers are these cute, tiny gals looking super cute in everything they wear! It’s a little overwhelming because that is DEFINITELY not me. I’m almost 6’ tall and I haven’t seen 120 lbs on a scale since pre-high school. To clarify, I’m usually really confident in who I am and I have no desire to be much smaller than I am (most of us usually want to lose a pound or to if we’re honest with ourselves, right?), but that doesn’t mean I want to take lots of pics of myself and post them for the world to see. Not that I have to. I know I don’t. I’ve just been realizing how helpful it is to readers if they see a real life person in a real life outfit. Much better than a random Amazon link! So, I’m going to be trying it. I don’t even own a full length mirror… this is gonna be fun.

In order to ease myself into the process, I wanted to show you this amazing dress I got this week! I ordered the wine color because it was on sale for $9.99 in my size! I found the dress because Simply Becca modeled it last week. She’s much smaller and cuter than I am, but it looked like maybe a dress I would like. With free prime shipping and free returns I ordered it! 

When I tried it on I fell in love! It’s soft, it’s comfy, it hides the extra skin the twins left me with (they give such good gifts). I even had running shorts on underneath and you couldn’t tell! Oh, and it has POCKETS! I think it would look cute with a kimono or jean jacket, too!

Next, it was time to get the picture. The boys were outside playing so I thought maybe they could help me. Since they’re 3… aiming is still a challenge. They each DID manage to get a picture from the waist down (but mostly just my feet and the grass), though my face was nowhere to be seen. I also tried the self timer (see the thumbs up) and posing was a huge challenge! The selfie attempt was hard to fit my whole 6’ frame in.

All of that to say I loved the dress, and I am sorry for the quality of the pictures 😃. If you want to try it for yourself, here’s the link!

What’s it like being a mom?

I don’t even know how to explain what being a mom is like, but I feel like this picture is a pretty good description. 

This was my view this morning as I tried to go to the bathroom. We’re talking a quick trip to the bathroom to use the toilet. Nothing else. No shower. Not washing my face or doing my makeup. This is the setup that happened in the minute or two it took me to sit down and do my business. Yes, of course, and wash my hands afterwards. And then I had to run grab my phone to take this picture. 

I was sitting in the living room with the boys. I didn’t announce I was leaving the room. I didn’t tell them what I was doing. I just got up and walked away to quickly use the toilet and return. No sooner than I had taken 3 steps toward the bathroom I heard the noise level behind me change. I heard little steps following behind, making sure to grab things they would need for our bathroom adventure on their way. 

T’s choice was a chair and a book. He sat and read (with his backpack!) while I peed. B, however, went all out. He grabbed a pallet, a book, a blanket, and his bear and literally took a fake 10 second nap -that’s all the time he had left by the time he got himself situated- while I was in the bathroom. 

This is my life! This is a Mom. A boymom. A twinmom. Every mom. I walk away and they follow. I open a bag of bread to make toast for breakfast and I immediately have two scientists observing and questioning my every move. I take a deep breath and they ask “are you ok, Mommy?” I take a step toward the kitchen and they ask “what are you making, Mom?”

My children never stop moving, never stop talking, don’t like to be alone – unless they’re trying to get away with something – and they even follow me to the bathroom. I’m not even a true introvert, but this all-the-time leaves no time for a quiet moment. That’s what it’s like being a mom.

Some days the constant is really hard. The everywhere, all the time wears on me. I often must purposefully remind myself that this is good. This is normal. All the questions are because they are learning. The following me everywhere is because they love me and want to be with me. And if I take pause and really look at this moment – it makes me laugh. Two little boys, setting up camp with their mama in the bathroom.

Last night, I was really tired. The boys were eating a yogurt snack before bed and I was getting ready for bedtime. They starting covering each other with the yogurt. It was all over their faces and hands, and in their hair. I wanted to be mad, but I couldn’t help laughing at them. And they laughed and laughed and laughed with me. I even tried to say “I am upset at you guys” but B told me, “You can’t be mad! You are like this” and showed me the funniest laughing face ever. It felt good to laugh and not be upset. It made cleanup easier, too!

I guess what I’m trying to say is that the round the clock, the all the time can be tiring. There’s good, there’s bad, there’s fun, there’s difficult, there’s excitement, there’s exhaustion, there’s constant. So remember to laugh a little- like my boys reminded me last night. And like this picture reminds me as well. Next time you’re asked what it’s like being a mom, just show them this picture. And then laugh. There’s just no other way to describe it.

All day, every day. 

Use Your Warranties!

I’ve had great success calling and making use of warranties with items I buy. And not talking about buying additional protection plans – just the warranty that comes with the items. Here’s 2 short stories on how I’ve gotten use out of my warranties lately!

We have had a handheld Shark vacuum for a few years. It only worked for a year or 2 after we got it, and then the battery stopped holding a charge. I didn’t know what to do with it so it just sat there. I recently posted the picture below on Facebook with a question about what to do. I was ready just to throw the vacuum away! I got some great advice from friends that I should call Shark and see what their customer service could do for me! I was told they are very helpful, so I made sure to call as soon as I could.

When I called, the CS rep that answered wasn’t very friendly. He wasn’t *un*friendly, but he was talking in a weird lilt that seemed to say “I don’t want to be on the phone and I don’t care.” Because of this, I asked to speak to a manager after he said he couldn’t help me much. His only option was for me to buy a new battery for a lot more than I wanted to spend on an old vacuum!

When the manager called me back the next day she was able to do a little better for me. I ended up getting a new battery for the price of shipping. I felt like this was a good compromise and agreed to pay for the shipping. She did remind me I was past my warranty so they technically didn’t have to do anything. I’m thankful they were willing to work with me and help me out!

The battery should be here in a few days. I honestly can’t wait! It will be so nice to have a handheld vacuum in the basement!

The other recent experience I’ve had with using a warranty is on my My Pillow. Did you know they have a 10 year warranty? My My Pillow wasn’t staying as puffy as I’d like it to after only a year. I didn’t have my receipt but they were able to use the tag on the pillow to look up my info and sent me a new one free of charge! In this case I just sent them an email and they replied quickly and were super helpful. It was definitely worth it to shoot them an email.

All this to say, don’t forget that sometimes all it takes is a few phone calls and you might be able to save quite a bit of money! Warranties come with lots of products, and you can always google to find out what kind of warranty your item might have. Even if it doesn’t end up working out, no harm done. It’s definitely worth a call or email!
