No Batteries Needed with a HydraLight! (GIVEAWAY)


Have you ever pulled out a flashlight and found that the batteries were dead? That's especially frustrating when you discover that you've run out of fresh batteries or didn't bring them with you! Fortunately, that's never a problem when you have a HydraLight. This amazing flashlight actually runs on water, not traditional batteries. I have to admit that I was skeptical when I first heard about this, but when we dipped the fuel cell in water for the recommended time and reinserted it into the flashlight, it lit up! And I didn't have to get a single battery out of the drawer.


One of my favorite features of the HydraLight is that it can be used as a flashlight or a lantern. Just extend the top and set it down on a flat surface, and you can use the HydraLight hands-free! Now, the HydraLight won't last forever (the fuel cell is good for about 100 continuous hours on a single charge and should be able to handle 3 charges), but it's very handy to have around for those times when you can't use a traditional flashlight. Take it camping or use it around the house. If you're a parent, this is a really cool item to show the kids. They'll be amazed that you can make the flashlight work with water!


Everybody needs a flashlight now and then. Why not pick up a HydraLight or two for your home, car, boat or camper? The more you buy, the more you save when you purchase HydraLights at www.HydraLight.com.

GIVEAWAY

One lucky winner will receive a HydraLight! Enter through the Rafflecopter form below. This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only and ends at 11:59 PM EST on Wednesday, January 31, 2018.

Set a New Year's Goal to Enroll in a Florida Prepaid College Plan -- Use This Promo Code and Save!

This post is sponsored by the Florida Prepaid College Board, through my role as a Believer Blogger. All thoughts are my own.


Happy New Year! This is the time of year when parents often set goals for their family. This might involve future vacations, educational opportunities, job seeking, house hunting or many other things. But even if your children are very young, have you thought about adding college savings to your list of priorities for this year? Student loan debt has reached $1 trillion among Americans, but by planning ahead, you can help your children not be part of this statistic. Our family is proof of this! When my two oldest boys were babies, we bought both of them Florida Prepaid College Plans. We paid a small amount each month until they turned 18, and then they were able to use this money for college tuition. Thanks to their plans, both my boys received bachelor’s degrees debt free! What a wonderful graduation gift it was for them knowing that they weren’t starting their adult lives under the shadow of heavy debt.

If you live in Florida, getting Florida Prepaid plans for your children, grandchildren or other family members is a no-brainer. The younger the child, the lower the payments. And there are many different plans available to suit just about any budget. Plus, it only takes about 10-15 minutes to fill out the application. Do it while you’re enjoying your morning coffee or waiting for an appointment. But don’t delay too long because Open Enrollment closes at the end of February.


Here’s another great reason why this is the year to enroll… With the following code, you’ll receive $25 off the application fee at any time during open enrollment!

PROMO CODE:
Susan1718

The Florida Prepaid College Board’s annual Open Enrollment period is Oct. 15, 2017–Feb. 28, 2018.

I have two more children who will be going to college, and you can bet that I also enrolled them in a Florida Prepaid College Plan. I know a lot of families who are stressed at the thought of paying for their kids’ upcoming college education, but I’m not feeling the same stress because I know that my twins’ tuition is already covered, just like it was for their two older brothers. (You can also purchase plans that will cover living expenses and other college-related fees.) I hope you’ll check out this incredible opportunity if you’re a Florida resident.

Tips for Getting a Good Night’s Sleep

I recently asked people for their best bedtime tips. If you struggle with getting a good night’s sleep, perhaps one of these ideas will work for you!

Eliminate stress. Don't do stressful things like looking at bills or having a difficult conversation before bedtime. Write down your worries and put them away. Get things ready for the next day so your to-do list doesn’t keep you awake.

People are divided on the issue of noise. Some say the room should be quiet, with no TV or other noise. Others recommend using a sound machine or a fan for white noise, watching TV or listening to soothing music.

People were also divided on the issue of food or drink. Some said to avoid them 1-2 hours before bedtime so you don’t have to use the bathroom at night. Others say a cup of chamomile or herbal tea, milk or warm cocoa helps them to sleep. Avoid caffeine.

Massage your feet or have your partner give you a massage!

Keep the room cool. Turn down the heat (or turn up the air conditioning, depending on the season).

Read a book.

Keep the room dark. Consider purchasing blackout curtains or shades, or use a sleep mask.

Stop using all gadgets, electronics and computers an hour before sleeping.

Use lavender oil in a diffuser.

Do breathing exercises.

Take a bath before bed.

Keep regular hours. Go to bed at the same time every night if possible and get up at the same time every morning.

Use soft sheets, a comforter or quilt, and pajamas.

Make sure you have a comfortable pillow and mattress, like a memory foam hybrid mattress from Tomorrow Sleep. (Get $150 off any $500 purchase from Tomorrow Sleep with the code SUSAN150 if you purchase by 12/31/17.)

Do you have any sleep tips that aren’t covered here? Feel free to comment!
