Relief with Advil

It's hard to believe but back in middle and high school I was really athletic, I was in cross country, track, soccer, basketball and more. I loved staying active but right after I graduated from high school, I had my son and as busy as my lifestyle was - I wasn't walking or running or getting hardly any exercise in anymore. I wasn't as active, my heart wasn't getting enough exercise and sadly I had gained weight as well. My body craved exercise and unfortunately, I ignored it for way too long.

Nowadays, when I'm not a work, and driving the kids around to their activities, you'll find me at the gym, yes you read that right - I got my groove back! I go a few days a week and I love it, there is nothing better than a great work out or knocking out five or six miles on the treadmill. So how did I get there? Well, it wasn't easy!

Shopping with Smart Coupons at Family Dollar®

I love to shop, it's no secret that I enjoy shopping for my children but I also love a good deal just like everyone else! As a single mom it's important that I shop sales, use coupons and make sure I'm getting the best deals whenever I can! I'm also a very busy parent, I don't have hours to spend clipping and organizing paper coupons out of the newspaper, just to lose them or forget about them days later. Not only does that sound like a lot of work, who has the extra time for that? I sure don't and I'm so thankful one of my favorite stores now uses digital coupons - it makes my shopping trips a breeze! 

Family Dollar® Stores offers the brands we all know and love with prices that are easier on your budget. I visit Family Dollar® at-least once a week, I love clipping their new Smart Coupons, every penny counts when your a single parent! The savings quickly add up and I love that I'm saving money on everyday items, Family Dollar® makes it so simple and easy!
