This blog is a little bit random, just like me. Anything I find, learn, create, or discover- anything that I think is inspiring, fun, or helpful for other busy moms, I’ll share it with you here. Being a mom is what my life is centered around, and most of what I write about is targeted towards other mommas – But I hope that even if you’re not a mom, you find a ton of fun & helpful info here.


  1. I LOVE THIS MEAGAN :-) I could use so much of this but have always been hesitant as to which sites were safe or not. THANK YOU

    • I started using these kinds of sites a few years ago, and there are a LOT of them that are not worth the time, have rewards that are unattainable or not very valuable, and a few are just scams! But these are all sites that I use and have had luck with. I’m glad that they helped ya a bit!

  2. What a great blog! I hope it is successful for you. Stop by and say, “hello”, we love to support moms!

      Thank you so much!! I just went to check you out too, and am following you now, so I don’t miss anything :)

      Very sweet of you to leave the kind words… Starting a blog is a lot of work, and it is still very new, and I’m still learning a lot as I go. But it has been a lot of fun too, and I love meeting new people that stop by….. <3

  3. This is amazing woman…I love it…

    Hi there – You responded to a question on the Today’s Parent Facebook page about morning trouble spots. We’d love to use your idea about setting the timer for each morning “task” to keep kids moving along in a story we’re running in our Sept. issue. I just need your name and location to include with the quote, if you don’t mind.

    Thanks for getting back to me!

  5. Hello Megan! Thanks for your blog page and all your resources. Love your intro, you seem like a wonderful person ;)
    I’ve been making sure to save for years but just really getting into maximizing the coupons and toolbars out there!
    I am starting a blog, I am very very new to blogging (even tho hubby is IT!) and stumbling through but will have it up & going in no time; I want to promote my Avon business plus share the coupon sites & money saving items too.
    Have an awesome day!

  6. I would like to change the e-mail address that I used to register with Sunshine and Sippy Cups. Is this possible or will I have to register again with the new e-mail address ?

    I love your website. Thank you for helping me.

  7. I’m looking forward to seeing what can be done with a tight budget! I’m a new follower and e-mail subscriber via the Super Stalker Sunday blog hop!
    Stop by:

  8. Meagan you are absolutely a-MAY-zing! Look at you go, congrats! We will have to meet up sometime, I think I could learn a few things from you!

  9. Hi Meagan,
    I have actually seen your website come across my screen multiple times – mostly via MBC – and I decided to follow you! What most recently caught my attention was your answer to the WordPress & Advertising post.
    I’ve recently started (and I’m in the process – so don’t judge my jumbled blog lol!) trying to take my blog to the next level — maybe even trying to make a little extra cash off of it (that’s completely wishful thinking right now). I was just hoping I could learn a thing or two from you! :)

    I look forward to reading/hearing more from you!

      Hi Stephanie!

      Thanks so much for taking the time to come and visit my blog :) I hope you learn some new tips, I have a series that I started last week.. {And, didn’t finish! I hosted a first birthday party at my home with almost 100 guests, and was VERY overwhelmed!} but will finish up this week. If you look under “Blogging Resource” on the categories in my sidebar, you’ll find the {Blogging Tips} series to check out. Some great networks and resources in it that should help you a ton!

      I’ll definitely check out your blog today, and if I have any advice or suggestions, I’ll send you an email :) But again, I’ve only been doing this for around 6 months, so I’m still no expert! And if you ever have any questions, feel free to email me at, and I’ll try to help you. You can also leave a comment on my Facebook page, and sometimes the other ladies reading can help too! Good luck!!

    Hi Meagan: I just now looked at your web site and WOW. I had lunch with your dad (who is my nephew—I am the sister of Grover Paullin) and Marijo who is my niece, of course. Your dad told me and my sister, Deanna, about your web site. It is super. I just wanted you to know that as your cousin of some sort or rather a relative of some sort that I am here is Seattle, Wa. Keep up the good work. Sue

    • Meagan Paullin says

      Hi Sue! How crazy – nice to “meet” you :) It’s too bad I haven’t gotten to meet more of the family – and now dad and Marijo are moving, so it’ll be even tougher to get to meet more family! But I’m glad to connect with you here!!
