So Halloween is just a couple weeks away! Have you put thought into it yet? There is always a drive to show off our kids. They have so much fun and love running around saying “trick or treat”. Last year The kids dressed them self. Mckeely wanted to be a evil ballerina. Maleeya wanted to wear her tutu. Matthew wanted to use his batman costume, and Maveric was just cute in his eeyore costume that we picked just to keep him warm.
Maleeya loves to dress up and look pretty.
This year, since Idaho usually gets some form of heavy frost or snow by Halloween, we still needed to keep little Maveric warm. We found this cute monkey outfit at Other Mothers. He giggled when he saw it and when we got home dug through the bag till he found it. He ran around the house the other day wearing his new monkey outfit. It fits him because we have always called him “chunky monkey”.
But outside of the fun of costumes is safety and the decorations. Many people are thinking a little more about pumpkin safety. Not carving them, but lighting them. When I was young I remember smelling burning pumpkin as I went door to door trick or treating. Back then every one used candles, and they always seemed to dry out and start to char the inside. Every now and then I saw people pouring water on them to put out the char.
Why worry about that when you can use a candle that is safe and powered by a battery? And with coupons now a days that is so easy to do! And while you are out following your kids around the neighborhood, and the next neighborhood, and so on, you don’t have to worry about your pumpkins catching on fire. Just use a small LED flashlight or lantern from Rayovac!
It is so easy to use this lantern it comes with three of the AA Rayovac. It is the Rayovac Sportsman Xtreme Mini LED lantern. With a dollar off coupon on any flashlight you can pick one up for a thrifty price. I know these are in Walmarts and other major retailers nation wide. So go ahead, carve your pumpkin and light it up and forget about it. You wont have to worry about the pumpkin catching on fire, and you wont have to come home to a dark dim pumpkin with the power that Rayovac batteries provide! This lantern can run for 35 hours continuously! Talk about trick or treating~ you could do your whole town and come home to the pumpkin still lit up!
There is such a need for power in today’s world. Power in large and small quantities. Rayovac’s new Platinum Lithium Power Pack PS60 meets that need head on. Check out this review that shows the Platinum Lithium Power Pack and its features. You can also see a competitor unit that I have used in the past.
What I got to test was just perfect. The Rayovac PS60 has no moving parts. The competitors unit that I just got about two months ago, is large, very heavy, and bulky. There is no way you just slide it in your pocket. Also about two weeks ago I had to send it back after using it just once. The plug end of it that moves broke internally.
With the Rayovac PS60 there are no moving parts. You have the Lithium Ion Power pack, a carrying bar that hold the three adapters – micro – USB, a mini-USB, and an Apple charging plug. It also has the charging cable. You have one cable the adapts to them all. On the top side of the power pack there are two ports. One says “IN” which is to charge the actuall unit when plugged into a charging USB port like on your computer. Next there is an “OUT” which you take the power cord USB end and plug it into the PS60 and attach what ever charging plug you need for your electronic device. And your unit has some 6 hours of talk time for a phone!
If you are on the phone for six hours – You might of well set a new record! So this Platinum Lithium Power Pack the PS60 might even help you set that record!
You can find it at Walmart for about $15 bucks!!!! (In stores Monday 9/26/11)

With so many different electronics out today, combined with so many different types of batteries, how can you make the right choice? Which ones should you get to protect your electronics and make your purchase “thrifty”. Making a battery purchase “thrifty” is more then just using coupons! By picking the right battery for the right type of electronics you maximize the batteries potential and can turn a normal toy or mp3 player into your favorite. How? Well let’s look at the different types:
We all know about Single Use Batteries. They have been around for what seems like forever. Most tend to buy these because the cost can be lower then the other types.
The next main type are Multiple Use or Rechargeable, or even called secondary batteries. Rechargeable batteries have a variety of types of internal components. many have shelf life of 10 years, while some can be recharged hundreds of times. These can be confusing because with technology there has been a growth to these type of batteries and what they are made of. Here are the different types that you may see on the labels:
Nickel Metal Hydride – NiMH
Nickel Cadmium – NiCd
Lithium Ion – Liion
Sealed Lead Acid – SLA
With so many different electronics and applications which battery should you use and in what? Here is a list of electronics and their recommended battery:

I am a stay at home mom with four wonderful kids. I have been married for over 13 years to my best friend. He always supports my crazy "thrifty adventures". If you didn't know already - I'm a Heart Mom. Our oldest has a congenital heart defect called Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. He basically has half a heart. We even started a charity called Save Lives Save Money to help other heart families in their time of need. Where couponers give back to help pay for basic needs of families in need.
I was raised on a small dairy farm. I learned very young, the value of hard work and how to be thrifty in all areas of life. Our meals were made from scratch. Only on special occasion would we get name brand cereal, chips, or any other fancy treats. Now that I am a Mom with my own budget, and coupon shop, the basic foods always comes first. I too make most of our meals from scratch recipes and take pride in feeding my family a well balanced healthy diet. You can follow our weekly Menu Plan to see how you can coupon and eat healthy at the same time!
I enjoy seeing how far I can make our budget stretch, and when I take the time to match sales with coupons I am able to get all those "fun & fancy" items that would other wise be out of my budget. From our Coupon Database, to our page to print coupons, our Couponing 101, our Freebies 101 - we like to call it a Thrifty Living Lifestyle. We post my weekly budget review so you can see exactly how far you can stretch a budget. Being thrifty has always been a way of life for me. For more info see A Thrifty Mom in the Media.
