Do you have a child who always wants to touch the book while you read it? Or perhaps you want your non-reading child to have more of a role during story time. Or you are like me with a budding magician. If you have a child or desire that matches one of these do I have a book for you!! The book is This Book Is Magic by Ashley Evanson. It is being released today!!

Finding coupon codes that work when shopping--my review of Dealspotr.com

Disclosure: I was compensated for this post. All opinions are my own.

Do you shop on-line and search for the latest deals for certain sites? Then always wonder if the code is still working? Or perhaps go into the store but search for coupons first? Or maybe you are one of those people who do not want to give your email out to get the coupons. (I have a Hotmail account for businesses that I only check when I want a coupon.) However I have recently discovered Dealspotr.com.
Dealspotr makes getting coupons, promo codes and deals so much easier. It is  a site that is crowdsourced. People literally enter in the codes and sales when they get notification of one and other people validate the sale. Plus people post a picture of the deal either working or the banner with the details. Plus you earn rewards for posting and validating so people are doing it all the time!!
