Grow Your Own Avocado Tree With AvoSeedo 2.0 Better Than Ever

Have you ever wanted to try growing your own avocado tree? AvoSeedo makes it easy. I actually did an AvoSeedo review a couple years ago. AvoSeedo worked but now they’ve made it even better with AvoSeedo 2.0.

AvoSeedo 2.0 is on kickstarter now. It’s already 70% funded. The first version sold over half a million times! It’s easy to use. As long as you have the AvoSeedo tool the only other things you need to start your own tree is water and an avocado pit!

The new closed design ensures your avocado pit stays right where it’s supposed to. No sinking. The cute design ads some whimsy. So adorable right?

Even with the older version I always had questions about it when people came to visit. I can only imagine the conversations this one will bring up. It’s exciting to see the first signs of growth from your avocado pit thanks to Avoseedo.

Your Avoseedo 2.0 kit comes with everything pictured below:

The only thing you’ll need additionally is the avocado pit and water. So easy to use!

Check out the AvoSeedo 2.0 on kickstarter I’m also happy to announce that AvoSeedo 2.0 will be participating in this year’s Holiday Guide 2019 here on

Dashing Giveaway Hop: Kiddolab 2-in-1 Activity Table

This post is sponsored by  Any opinions expressed are my own.  Prize is sponsored by

Thanks for stopping by during the Dashing Giveaway Hop hosted by MamaTheFox.  

Lana was a full-time nanny and always had a her eyes peeled for developmental toys that were both fun and as they were educational.  After having her own child she used her knowledge to create a line of exciting educational toys for early learning called Kiddolab

As a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant and mom of 4 I can relate.  I’d always look for toys that would encourage developmental milestones like crawling, sitting, standing, but making it fun for my kids so they wanted to do it even on their own.  Kids, especially very young children, learn through play.  One of the toys that was a big hit with all my kids and myself was a learning table.  I could take the legs off to give them something interested for tummy time and make them want to lift their head.  As their motor skills developed I could have them sit up and play with it.  Then put the legs back on and they would pull up to stand to play with it.  Kiddolab makes an activity table that is very similar to what I had for my kids. 

The frugal blogger side of me loves the site because the prices are amazing too!  To top it off is offering Luv Saving Money readers a 25% discount when you go through my link: and use code: LUVSM25

Merry Little Christmas Hop: Kristy Feltenberger Gillespie Writer Nirvana Trilogy

What seems like many moons ago, (but really wasn’t in the grand scheme of things) I had the pleasure of meeting Kristy.  That time frame was high school.  I never thought in adulthood I’d be reading and promoting her books but here she is killing it with her young adult lit.

I started with the first book in Kristy Feltenberger Gillespie’s Nirvana trilogy, Jaded.  I was even lucky enough for her to sign my copy!

Jade lives in the Nirvana commune with the idea of balance and equality (in their beliefs). As Jade approaches her 17th birthday she had decisions to make, a surgery to undergo,  some new romantic feelings, mysterious secrets, and a desire for more than the little world she knows. This book has a little of everything.

The first couple chapters a very detailed. You get to learn a lot about the characters, the setting, the scenarios going on.  After the first few chapters the book starts to pick up pace. I found myself following a budding romance, questioning  motives of some of the characters in the book, trying to figure out what was being covered up, and more.

You can follow Kristy’s blog here:

We Received a Package From Santa

I received a packagefromsanta for review purposes. Any opinions expressed are my own. 

My 9 year old son still believe in Santa. Every year I wonder how much longer I have to keep that magic alive. If he approaches me about it, I will, of course, tell him.  I also have a 5 year old that believes. My two oldest are 14 and 16 and stopped believing around 8 or 9.

We have been getting the Package from Santa along with the custom phone call and video every year for the past several years and my little ones honestly look forward to it.  I got one review package that I ordered for my daughter as I wasn’t sure if my 9 year old would still be interested.  He told me he wondered when his would come from Santa, so, I needed to order him one.

What I really like about is the high quality letters, the personalization available, and the phone call and video choice.  Each kid could get a phone call and they will all be different if I so choose.

There are different packages available.  I got the Silver package to review which includes:

-Personalized Letter from Santa
-Santa’s Special North Pole Return Address Label
-Genuine North Pole Stamp
– 90-day money-back guarantee
-FREE Personalized VIDEO
– FREE Personalized PHONE CALL from Santa
– FREE Personalized printable NICE LIST GUIDE

It comes in an eye-catching Christmasy envelope addressed to your child, if you so choose.  When my son’s came in he said “finally, Santa got my letter out” lol


I love the personal touches.  When you create the letter you can include things like achievements, things they need to work on, that special think on their wish list, etc.

Every year I think, this will be it, I’ll only have one more believer in the house after this year.  I always said that if they still believed by age 10 I would tell them.  Next year he will be 10 so I think it will be time.

Give your kids a Christmas EXPERIENCE they will never forget! BBB A+ rated delivers a personalized Santa LETTER, VIDEO (starring your child), PHONE CALL and printable NICE LIST GUIDE w/ every package!

season is hectic. No matter how big your little ones are or what genre they love most, they have
tons of exciting kids’ content that will please even reluctant readers, as well as content that the
whole family can enjoy together.

holiday activities. If you’re planning on taking a family drive to look at neighbor’s light displays,
Homer and the Holiday Miracle is a heartwarming audiobook that will make you feel extra

audiobook like The Polar Express.
