College books can be expensive, so why bother spending big bucks and purchasing them, when you can visit an online store such as CampusBookRentals.com and rent them, saving yourself time, money and space when you don’t need them anymore!
CampusBookRentals.com saves you 40-90% off of bookstore prices, renting periods are flexible, and shipping is quick, easy and best of all FREE!
While you’re renting your books and furthering your education, Campus Book Rental is giving smiles to children. For every book rented, Operation Smile receives a donation. Operation smile provides free surgeries for children with cleft palates and lips.
CampusBookRentals.com also has a new program called RentBack, where you can take some of those textbooks that you have already purchased, and rent them to other students. This gives you the potential to earn even more money rather than selling them for a one time deal.

There’s no place like home for the holidays!!
Are you traveling this holiday season to see family? Unfortunately most of the time we’re just there…Home… I don’t get to see or spend a lot of my holiday time with my family or friends as they live quite a distance away from us, so home for the holidays is just that. At Home! Although it’s great that I have my daughters and husband around, I do always miss getting together with the rest of my family. Grandparents, Uncles, Aunts, Cousins. I miss them a lot, and hubby misses his family too. There’s always that great thing of video chat though, so at least we’re not totally out of the loop.
I’ve partnered up with Sunoco to give my readers a chance to win a $25 Sunoco Gift Card so one of you can get home for the holidays! To enter, all you have to do is enter via the giveaway tools widget below, make sure to do the mandatory entry of leaving a comment on this post for your entries to be valid.
Sunoco offer’s gas gift cards, which make a great gift for that hard to buy for person, or that person who maybe travels a lot, or maybe you’d like to give someone a gift card to come visit you, no excuse with a gift card right? Check out the Sunoco locator to find the nearest station.

Baby on the hip, box in one hand and phone in the other – so, yeah, life is a little bit crazy right now. Moving with kids can be hard, especially if your children aren’t yet old enough to completely understand all the craziness that comes with relocation. But if you stay organized and follow these tips, you’ll get through the move with grace while still retaining that Mom of the Year crown.
Explaining what moving is
First of all, depending on how old your kids are, you may need to sit down with them and explain exactly what it means that you guys are all moving to a new house together. The younger your child, the more you will have to elaborate in the simplest terms possible.
Dealing with the inevitable acting out
Moving is a stressful time for everyone. Despite your best efforts to keep a positive outlook for the kids, it’s inevitable that some of that façade will crack a little bit, revealing the stress beneath the calm. Your kids will freak out if they realize you’re stressed, but they’ll likely throw tantrums anyway, with all the changes swirling around them. Try to level with them and assure them that it’s natural to be worried about all the new things happening but reinforce that it is also exciting.
Maintaining a normal routine
This is an especially hard one. Between showing the house, packing everything up and tying up all other loose ends, you’re bound to feel like it will be impossible to maintain the usual routine. But don’t despair! If you’re realistic about things, you can get everything done and drive everyone where they need to go – but maybe that means cutting out a soccer practice or two.
Keeping the kids entertained
When you have your hands full, the last thing you want to hear from your children is the dreaded, “I’m bored.” Avoid this conversation by packing a moving time kit that includes some of your kids’ favorite things to do, so they will be occupied while you do the heavy lifting.
Finding new schools and activities
Figuring out the right school for your kids can be tough, especially when you’re making decisions remotely. Try to schedule school tours when possible, and definitely look online at the state board of education rankings. This is also the time to use your network – ask friends of friends what their experiences with the schools are like.
