Curamin® for Chronic Pain – Workout at Home Printable

Disclosure: This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. All opinions are mine alone. #StopPainNow #CollectiveBias

Living with chronic pain really stinks. More times than not, no matter what I try to do to help the pain, it really doesn’t do much. I’ve dealt with knee pain for about the last 20 years.  As if having knee pain wasn’t enough, I also deal with wrist pain. Being a writer and always on a computer, there are times I stop working and I can barely move my fingers from the pain in my wrist. Thankfully I have found Curamin® Stop Pain Now and just like the name says, it is helping to stop my pain in it’s tracks!


What is Curamin®?

Curamin® is a non-addictive herbal supplement that has been recognized in the natural product industry for years and has won 28 awards. Living with chronic pain, the last thing I want to do is take a bunch of over the counter medications or prescriptions that could end up having a negative impact on other areas of my body. With Curamin®, I get pain relief at the source of the pain; it doesn’t just mask it. For me, that is very important.

Where Can You Buy It?

You can pick up this herbal supplement at fine health food stores nationwide. For more information on a store near you, be sure to check the store locator (or just order online)! I picked up mine at a health food store near me that I just love called Zerbos. Finding it in the store was really easy. An employee asked me what I was looking for. When I told him, he told me that he loved this product!


Does it Work?


YES! I have only been taking Curamin® for a few weeks and I am really happy with how my wrist and knees are feeling. Like I said earlier, I would very much prefer to take an herbal supplement like this, as opposed to over the counter medications that always seem to upset my stomach. I take Curamin® three times a day and always with food (it doesn’t say you have to, but it helps me remember). So this morning, after the gym, I took it with my breakfast!


One of the ways I’ve noticed that it’s helping is when I work out. Since my husband is out of town a lot for work, I don’t always get a chance to get to the gym. My kids have a very crazy sports schedule! But, gym or no gym, I still want to get a workout in. So I put together this Workout at Home printable for you.


Print your FREE Printable HERE!

Whether you working out at the gym or at home, don’t let pain stop you from doing the things you want and need to do. When pain is the problem, Curamin® is the answer! Be sure to check the store locator and pick up some Curamin® today!



Bottle Flip Board Game

If you have tweens and teens, then you are more than familiar with the bottle flip craze that has been sweeping the nation. My kids will flip anything. In fact, this morning, my son flipped the gallon of milk. No joke. Thankfully it did not break. Can you imagine that mess?!? I have to admit, I do yell “stop flipping things” quite often. However, when I was asked to review the Bottle Flip board game, I knew I had to!

Bottle Flip Board Game

I will admit, I almost said no to reviewing this game. Bottle flipping is VERY annoying to me. BUT, after playing this game, I realized why it bothers me so much. It’s not the actual bottle flip action, as much as it is the sound of the water bottles we have. That crinkle sound is what drives me crazy! With this game, there is zero crinkle sound! So it’s all good!

How to Play

Playing the game is really simple. Each player chooses their own bottle cap piece in the color of their choice. Then players draw a card to see what their “challenge” is. First player to make it to the top, wins! It’s really that simple…or is it?!? Being the overly competitive family that we are, this is a great game for us. It says it is recommended for ages 13+, but my 10 year old daughter did just fine!

If you like board games, you will definitely want to add this to your collection! We always give the kids a board game on Christmas Eve with their brand new pair of pajamas. Since we are close to Easter, this would be a great game to pick up for the kids (and you too…let’s be honest)!

Save Money with Gift Card Discounts #CardOffer317

As a stay at home mom, part of my job, besides keeping the kids alive, is to save money. I wasn’t always like this. However, now I almost make it a game to see how much money I can save. One way I save money is by using coupons. Especially when I am shopping online. Always, always, always look for a coupon code first before checking out! Another way I save is by purchasing gift cards at a discount. Think about it for a moment. If I know I will be shopping at a particular online store and a discounted gift card is available, why wouldn’t I want to buy the gift card first? Not only am I saving money right from the start, but if I am able to find a coupon code to use on my purchase too, I am saving even more!

Organizing Tips for Your Home

When my husband and I got our first house, it was a small, barely 1000 square foot, bungalow. It was super cute. One of the things I loved most about it was the telephone cubby in the hallway. I always wanted to put an old fashion lookingorganizing tips phone there! After we had our son, and all the “stuff” that comes with having a baby, we quickly out grew that house. Now that we are a family of four, in a bigger house, there are times when it feels like we’ve outgrown this house too. In reality, all we need is some organizing tips to maximize the space we have.

As you can imagine, when I was asked if I would like to receive a copy of the book, Organize Your Way: Simple Strategies for Every Personalityorganizing tips, it was a no brainer. I had to check it out! You know how we are always taking those tests on Facebook to tell us about our personality, what animal we are most like, etc? Well in this book, there is a quiz that you take to determine which tips and strategies work best for you. I have to admit, I was a bit excited to take the quiz and find out my “PixieType”.

About Organize Your Way

Organize Your Way is written by professional organizers behind PixiesDidIt®, Katie and Kelly McMenamin. In this book, you find out your personality type (PixieType) and then use real-life methods and systems that match that personality! After taking the quiz, I found out that I am the Classic Structure PixieType, which is totally me. Basically I like to declutter, I pile things (all the time), and I prefer to have written out to-do lists. Totally me!

Organize Your Way: Simple Strategies for Every PersonalityOrganize Your Way: Simple Strategies for Every Personality

Once you know your PixieType, the book is then broken down to the various sections of your home and Katie and Kelly McMenamin give you organizing tips for that section of your home, based on your PixieType. There are various places in my home (read – my whole home) that need desperate help in the organization department, so I cannot wait to read up on my PixieType and declutter accordingly!

Top Ten Pixie Organizing Tips

*From Katie and Kelly McMenamin

  1. Knowing who you are is key to organization mainly because if you’re pretending to be someone else, it’s hard to remember where that pretend person put something!
  2. Change is hard, so be honest about organizing tasks. People who never hang up their coats in a closet, probably never will; get a coat rack and call it a day.
  3. Perfect isn’t real. Magazine perfection is styled by a professional whose job it is to make everything perfection for the millisecond it takes to snap a photo.
  4. No shame, no blame! You liking clear, spotless surfaces doesn’t make you OCD (it’s not a personality disorder), it’s your personality type.
  5. Later Box It. When you can’t part with a useless item, store it away in a box and revisit that box in a few months (a year), whatever you missed keep, whatever you forgot…dude, let it go.
  6. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Change is hard (see #2) so if storing TP right next to the toilet works for you, do it, but for heavens sake try to make it look niceorganizing tips–unless you live alone on Antarctica then who cares.
  7. Organizing at its core is about retrieval. Period. Can you easily find and get things when you need them? Everything else is an argument about aesthetics.
  8. One-step solutions are golden. Hanging up your coat is a five-step process whereas popping it on a hook is one-step. Light bulb (at least it was for us)!
  9. Be loud & proud. So, you write important To Do’s on your hand in a pinch. Who cares? Don’t apologize, defend it and tell any scolds where they can go.
  10. There’s no best way to organize–just the best one for you.
