Homeschool Buyers Co-op: With over 190,000 families, the Homeschool Buyers Co-op is the worlds’ largest buyers club for homeschooling families. They use their purchasing power to get members the best deals anywhere for homeschool curriculum. A good portion of the curriculum we use I have purchased from Homeschool Buyers Co-op.
Airbnb: My preferred way to travel is to stay in short-term rental vacation homes such as Airbnb (this will give you a $40 Airbnb coupon code for your next stay). Airbnb vacation home rates are usually comparable or cheaper than a hotel, plus you usually have more room and there is usually a kitchen as well. Also, if you have a lot of people going on vacation with you, you can split a house for a much cheaper price than it would be for everyone to get a hotel room.

Restored 316: If you are need of a great blog theme. I love Restored 316. Their feminine child-themes for Genesis are beautiful and very versatile, and most can be customized just how you want to match your brand and the feel of your site. Their support is top notch and every theme comes with tutorials to assist you through set-up, and if you need further support you can always submit a support ticket to the company and receive a quick and friendly response. I am running the Captivating theme right now on this site and am beyond happy with it.
Just a note: the themes I mentioned above are called child themes, and must be run on a parent theme called Genesis. If you are looking into the actual design of your blog, Genesis seems to always be the most popular. I highly recommend it. It’s affordable too! You can purchase the Genesis framework here.

It saves me a ton of time and allows me to grow my blog with minimal work.
