Yo tengo el ritmo / I have the Rhythm: Fun for babies, fun for mommies

Is your baby so bubbly and vivacious? Huggies Pull Ups

I was walking down in my favorite supermarket last weekend, Food for Less, when I saw a promo girl from Huggies. They are having a contest for babies or little kids in promotion of their Pull Ups Diaper. The contest is called Yo Tengo el Ritmo or I have the Rhythm.

They are looking for spirited children who can dance the Pull Ups song flawlessly and of course, the cutest.  Mommies and babies were invited to do a short performance in front of the camera which will be later on be uploaded in Bodegamas.com. Once uploaded, family, relatives and friends could vote for them after registering in Bodegamas.

At first, I thought it was easy cause my little daughter is so enthusiastic and energetic every occasion. But I was wrong.

She was so stunned by the commotion and everything, it took her by the end of the chorus to dance. But it was so funny to watch other kids dancing and tumbling crazily. They’re so cute looking so innocent and moving those hands staring at their dancing mom.

Oh well. I do hope you guys could help me out in the votation. According to what I heard, the winning video will be receiving a grand prize of about 500$ worth of cheques consumable in Food For Less. The 500$ part is not yet sure but what matters is that it could save a lot in grocery items for months and months which is very efficient in this uptight economy.

Too bad only southern California moms can avail this promo.:)



Food for Less for Budget Wise Moms

Today’s economy has brought a grave change in our budget management.

My husband and I just got kicked out of our jobs, which by the way, are both medium paying jobs. Our income can cover just about everything we needed. It’s not much but hey at least we can pay our bills.

When recession hit our only bread and butter, it took a rough road before I learned how to adjust. Of course being a mom of 3, it is really a challenge to budget what’s left of us. Luckily we have some friends who involved my husband to part time jobs. But still, its not what we’re used to having. Definitely smaller that what we have before.

In this time of needs, us moms need to excessively budget the money especially when it comes to weekly groceries.

Thank God for the internet cause I have found some great deals. There are so many shops today who have launched their own websites which also holds their price lists and catalogs.  To my surprise, I found an infamous cheap stake’s local supermarket online.

I’ve heard about Food for Less shops through my budget wise friends. You’ll be surprised how much” less” their prices are compared to your conventional stores. Before I was used to shopping in the nearest supermarket without even analyzing how overpriced their goods are. Their weekly sale discount reach upto 50% off the original price and there are some which almost sounds free.

Their sister company, BodegaMas.com, holds the weekly pricelists of their featured products. This site also incorporates Amazon’s list for clothings and accessories.You can also order their stuff online.

I swear this shop has saved me not just a few pennies but dollars. What attracted me most to BodegaMas is its collection of recipes and other tips for homemaking. Really nice right?
