Dear 2015 Me... #BehindTheBlogger

This post is part of the #BehindTheBlogger campaign to give readers an insight into the blogger. This week's entry is called Dear 2015 Me. I can write about whatever I want. But I want it to be an actual letter to myself. A letter that I would give to myself if I could travel back in time a year ago today. I hope you enjoy this post. Feel free to follow the linky below the post to read other bloggers posts. 

Dear 2015 Me...

I am writing to let you know that you will have an interesting year. Not everything will go the way you plan. You'll have a few obstacles. Let me help you out with a few pointers to help you get through the year, and life to come.

Stock Up on Scott Bath Tissue at Dollar General + Coupons!

So who knew that Dollar General offered coupons on the website? "Not I, said the duck". I had no idea. I guess I haven't paid much attention. Then again, Dollar General isn't on my usual route, though it is pretty close (I had to look it up!). It has been a while since I been to a DG. So when I had the chance to partner with DG, I was on board. I remember that they are a really affordable store with a lot to offer. If you're on a budget, this store should be in your vocab.
Perfect timing for this one, too. Christmas is next week! Did you know that? I didn't think you did. I hate realizing how fast something is approaching. While we aren't having guests at our place (we travel around the valley to family), we always make sure we're stocked on toilet paper. So it's perfect that SCOTT Brand toilet paper is trying to get your attention right now!
Back to those digital coupons at Dollar General, you can find several coupons for SCOTT Brand there! I went to the Dollar General website and signed up for an account so that I may use the coupons. It was super easy. Enter your number at checkout and the coupons are instantly applied to your order! I do love that SCOTT Brand is a great product with no frills. It's just the perfect choice for my paper needs.
So I added a few coupons to my account and headed to the store. There is a variety to choose from, and bonus packs help make it easy to stock up if you have company coming for the holidays! By the way, it would make a fun gag gift! Maybe if you're going to a White Elephant party!

SCOTT 1000 lasts quite a while in my household. I think they have some sort of magic that allows it to last longer than other brands. OK, maybe not actual magic. But those folks at SCOTT sure do know what they're doing.
So, sign up and then post what deals you find on your favorite social media account. Use hashtags like  #DollarGeneralDeals and #SaveOnScott (you'll find my posts with those tags, too!).

Sign up for DG Digital Coupons and add a SCOTT offer! No need to print or clip. Just give your phone number! There will be SCOTT® bonus packs in-store for a limited time. Signing up for Dollar General’s Digital Coupon site is easy and can be done in a few quick steps below:

To redeem Digital Coupons:
1. Sign up at  or visit the DG App.
2. Create account and load which SCOTT® coupons you would like to use
3. Visit your local Dollar General to redeem coupons at checkout. Find a Dollar General near you by using the store locator:

Cool Tech Gifts For The Man Child In Your Life

At Christmas, we buy lots of cool gifts and toys for our children. We love seeing their faces light up with delight as they open them. Then, they spend hours on Christmas Day playing with them while everyone else is getting ready for a big meal and celebration. However, some of use also buy gifts for those who can best be described as man-children. These are men who never grew up out of the things they loved when they were children. Star Wars has already made a hundred million in ticket pre-sales, and I guarantee you, that’s mainly due to the manchild. This weird species could be your husband, your boyfriend or your brother. Do you know what you’re getting them for Christmas? I’ve got some ideas.

#BehindTheBlogger: My Christmas Wish

This is my first post with Behind The Blogger. I'm not even sure what I want to write about. So I'm going to wing it as I go.

I think the :normal: person would say something like world peace, a place where my child can grow up without fear, etc. And yes, of course I'd like that.  But I'd also like to be selfish.

My Christmas Wish is for myself. I want something simple. My sanity.

I know that may sound absolutely crazy. But let me explain why.

They also have beautiful prints, like the elephant shower curtain below. 

From Sharp Shirter:
"We offer a wide selection animal themed products that have showcase the artwork of 30+ designers we have worked with since our grand opening in 2009. We are highly dedicated to the protection of animals and we've raised over $15,000 for the African Wildlife Foundation to help prevent the hunting of elephants. 

"Here at Sharp Shirter, we are intrigued by the way in which humans group animals into different categories. Some we eat, some we protect, some we own, and some we fear. Similarly, animals have a range of intentions when dealing with humans. Some are fearful of us while others love and protect us. Still, others will attack us and view us as a threat to their existence.

"We don't attempt to give answers to any of these relations, but rather we are satisfied with questions that we create we our animal tees. Find more information at SharpShirter.Com "
