  • ::Here’s How I Make a Few Extra Dollars For Holiday Gifts and Splurges:
  • Most of my kitchen gadgets have been free or nearly free because of Swagbucks. I have a Keurig coffee pot, a Breville juicer and am saving for a Vitamix blender. I would not have purchased any of these out of pocket, but by using Swagbucks for my internet searches, I can “splurge” on very nice items that the whole family can enjoy!
  • I also redeem my Swagbucks for gift cards for holiday spending.

Using Swagbucks is easy and it is free. If you don’t mind spending a few minutes just doing your regular Internet searching. I love Swagbucks and it has been a great way to “save up” for something extra without being out of pocket.

Once you log in, you can start earning free gift cards to Amazon.comJC PenneyLowe’sBarnes & NobleTarget, Starbucks and more. You will see that the gift cards are the best point value for your free Swagbucks.

essential oils

 What’s new for me right now? I am using essential oils. Have you tried them? 

Sleep issues, sugar cravings, and energy and focus are the primary reasons why I am using them.

I am just getting familiar with using essentials oils to replace many products in our medicine cabinet. If you are interested in sharing ideas about using essential oils or if you have been wanting to learn more about them too, I invite you to email me directly at I have a great story to share about they have been helping me so far!

I am using Young Living Essential Oils, after doing some research. My regular readers know that I had a health-crisis back in March and it was a real wake-up call to start paying close attention to what I am putting in my body, and dealing with my sleep and stress issues. I am trying the natural approach.


I am becoming someone of an expert for the Sandwich Generation, Baby Boomers and Empty-Nesters and the challenges we are facing. I hope you will check out some of the new topics I am covering on my home page. Please share my blog with your favorite Baby Boomers!
