BJ’s Membership Club to Open New Location in Charlotte, NC [giveaway]

Disclosure: This post has been compensated by BJ’s Membership Club. If you have been following me for a while, you know I’m a BJ’s Blogger Ambassador, but even if I didn’t get incentives to talk about BJ’s Membership Club I would, because I’m a huge fan! Shopping at BJ’s helps keep the household costs down for my family of seven–you can’t imagine how much my kids eat, and don’t get me started on the amount of toilet paper we go through, lol! Not only does BJ’s have great prices, but they offer monthly coupons AND accept manufacturers coupons that you can stack to save even more money. No other wholesale club does that! This is just one of the many reasons I’m so excited that BJ’s is opening a 2nd location in the Charlotte …

Five Tips to Protect Yourself from Theft [review JLeer jeans giveaway]

Five Tips to Protect Yourself from Theft [review JLeer jeans giveaway]

Disclosure: I was provided a pair of JLeer jeans in exchange for an open and honest review. All opinions are my own. A friend recently had her purse stolen while shopping. She turned away from her cart for just a few seconds to put something back on the shelf, and when she turned around it was gone. Less than 5 seconds is all it took for her life to be turned upside down. Everything was in there. Her cell phone, keys, checkbook, license, credit/debit cards, photos, and address book filled with all kinds of personal information. Everything that you don’t want a stranger to get their hands on. Until my friend’s experience, I’d never given much thought to theft. I mean I know it happens all the time, but “not to me”. And I’m …
