2013 is here, which means it’s a new year with new goals!  One of those goals is to build our savings.  I don’t know about you, but utility bills can be a piece of mail I dread opening, especially around the holidays.  With a big family, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve gone […]...

I have 3 boys and they all love to use the iPad and iPhone.  My youngest is 4 and is entering preschool, so why not help him learn his letters a little more while he’s playing with the iPhone or iPad?  This is possible with the Cypher Kids Club i3D Interactive Cards, now available at […]...

I […]...
