What's Your Plan for . . . ?

This post was sponsored by Instagrad. It contains my honest opinions of this service.

Someone asked me yesterday how in the world I anticipate paying for three children to go to college . .  . and I realized, I don't have a plan for that.

I guess I assumed over time our finances would eventually grow to the point that we could pay a significant chunk. And then there's scholarships and if needed student loans. But I don't have any savings plan.

But I was introduced to Instagrad recently and realized there was an easier way to purposely save for their college education.


Girl Saving for College

Accelerate your child’s college savings!

Find money . . . it could be hiding in your garage or attic! As parents, we frequently get tired of our kids receiving the same gifts over and over again. Instead of another toy or an outfit your child won't ever wear, you can use Instagrad as your personal fundraiser to help you accrue funds for their college. 

They even have carefully crafted fundraising campaigns for special dates. You can connect your child’s profile with friends and family, enable the campaigns you like, then sit back and watch your savings grow!

  1. What a great idea!! Since we're living on a tight budget, and who knows what the state of college grants and loans will be in 15 years, we need all the help we can get in order to save for my son's college. Not to mention the fact that I plan on going back to school myself!

    My mom actually opened a special account when my son was born, and instead of buying gifts that he'll outgrow, like toys and clothes, she contributes money to that account for his college fund. How nice it will be when he finishes high school and already has his own money to pay for college!

    I think that more people should be doing this, especially with a website like this that makes it so easy!

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
