Checking Out the Galaxy Note 7 at the BlogHer '16 Best Buy Experience

Disclosure: The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy 
Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since BlogHer '16.  There was so much to see and do.  
I was so excited to check out the Best Buy Mobile Plan and Compare Tool and be among the first to try out the Samsung Galaxy Note 7.  Yes, store launch was mid-August and we got to test a full 2 weeks before it hit the store.

I was surprised to learn nearly 50% of cell phone users overpay their monthly cell phone bill.  The Best Buy team helped me use the Mobile Plan and Compare tool - which is available at all Best Buy stores I must add - and I was surprised to learn I could save some serious dough by making a few changes to my mobile plan and even upgrade our phones.  

I did some calculating and figured out we could save enough to pay band fees for all three of our sons for the entire year with the money we saved just by making a few changes to our current mobile plan.  *jaw dropping*

Plus we could upgrade to the stylish, lightweight Samsung Galaxy Note 7.  The Galaxy Note has some really cool features including the S-pen which is perfect for techies like moi who prefer writing vs. pecking letters on a keyboard.  The screen is large and the 12-mp camera takes great pics.  My favorite feature is the Iris Scanner!!!  Our @3Boys_OldLady Fashionista was able to scan EVEN with glasses on!  

Adding the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to our Christmas wishlist especially after finding out how much we could save thanks to the Best Buy Mobile Plan and Compare tool.

Are you overpaying on your current mobile plan?  
What would you do with all the money you saved?

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
