Roomba 700 series for $279!

roomba

I recently bought one of those amazing Roomba robotic vacuums and since I know how expensive they can be I thought I would share the details on how I saved a ton of money on mine. I have already used mine and let me just tell you it is THE BEST THING that I have purchased in years! I do recommend getting a 700 or 800 series since they have upgraded technology and come with the virtual wall barriers and extra filters too.

So here’s how I got my Roomba for $279 (retail $599!) online.

Follow these detailed steps:

  • Start off your purchase on eBates {www.ebates.com/r/DARLIN680} Its a cash back site that I’ve used for 2 years and earned over $1000 just by shopping online!
    You will earn $21 cash back on this purchase.
  • On eBates search KOHLS and then click on ‘Shop Now’ to purchase from them
  • On KOHLS website search Roomba 761 which is currently on sale for $479.99 (reg. $599)
  • Use promo code DECSAVE25 to get 25% off your purchase at checkout
  • You should also earn $60 in KOHLS cash

Final total should be $360 + tax, but you will also earn $60 KOHLS cash to spend however you want in store or online AND you will get $21 cash back from eBates!

Darlin’ Deals Review ~ Finding Dory on Blu-Ray + DVD + Digital HD!

dory
Disclaimer: I received a complimentary advanced copy of Finding Dory Blu-Ray + DVD + Digital Copy combo pack in exchange for my honest review. I was not persuaded to write a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own unless otherwise noted.

If you fell in love with with the small-finned little clown fish Nemo and his loveable (and very forgetful) pal Dory back in 2003 when Finding Nemo hit theatres, be prepared to reignite your emotions for another deep sea adventure in Finding Dory.

The whole crew is back together for another journey through the ocean in the highly anticipated sequel. This movie still follows a plot line of looking for lost fish, but this time its Dory’s parents that must be found. With tons of tear jerking flashbacks of adorable baby Dory’s childhood and hilarious misadventures through the local Aquarium, with all new sea pals such as Hank the Septopus, you’ll cry and laugh throughout this film. My favorite scenes took place at the Aquarium with laugh out loud moments at every turn. This movie is sure to be a crowd pleaser and all ages can enjoy it! My 2 year old loved the scenes with ‘tiny Dory’, my 7 year old belly-achingly laughed at the funny seals that helped Nemo, Marlon, and Dory outside the Aquarium, and we all rooted for Dory to be reunited with her parents!

You can purchase Finding Dory Blu-Ray + DVD + Digital Copy Combo Pack currently priced at  just $15! *Amazon pricing can change at anytime.

HIDDEN GEMS found in this movie: 

NOSTALGIC WHEELS – The truck that is featured late in the movie features a logo from the 1986 short “Luxo, Jr.” produced by Pixar and directed by John Lasseter. The short’s success helped launch the studio, and the image of the desk lamp appears in Pixar’s iconic logo today. 

  • The license plate on the truck sports A113, which is reminiscent of the CalArts classroom for first-year graphic design and character animation where many of the artists and animators at Pixar began to build their craft. 
  • Sets Art Director Don Shank’s name can be seen in the truck’s grill.

TAG IT – The tags donned by the lazy sea lions snoozing outside the Marine Life Institute together bear the iconic A113. While Rudder’s tag reads A1, Fluke’s says 13.

FIELD TRIP – Riley from 2015’s “Inside Out” appears in a group of kids touring the Marine Life Institute. She is clearly featured in a frame with Dory.

 MAP IT – The registration number for the zodiac boat that picks up Dory in the bay outside the Marine Life Institute is PA1200, which represents Pixar’s address: 1200 Park Avenue.

Darlin’ Deals Review ~ Disney’s Alice Through The Looking Glass!

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary advanced copy of Alice Through the Looking Glass on Blu-Ray & DVD combo pack in exchange for my honest review. I was not persuaded to write a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own unless otherwise noted.

This month I had the pleasure of watching the delightfully-mad movie Alice Through the Looking Glass before its release date. Having not watched this film when it was in theatres I was overjoyed at this opportunity.

For those who grew up with Disney’s animated version of Alice as a staple in their video collection, you may remember the a simple girl who was always daydreaming. The Alice of the modern tale is a little bit more of a tomboy and far more adventurous, but a daydreamer nevertheless. In this sequel to 2010’s rendition of Alice in Wonderland, you’ll find that Alice Through the Looking Glass has all the characters (and same actors!) that you fell in love with.

This fairytale not only whisks you away to a colorful and cuckoo Wonderland, or Underland as the native residents refer to it, but you are also taken on a delightful journey through time. As the storyline unfolds you learn that Alice must save the Hatter from going completely mad by traveling through time to prevent the death of his family, the Hightopps.

My personal favorite scenes took place in the realm of Time that Alice ventures into. The quirky and imaginative twist on what or should I say who ‘Time’ is really made for an enjoyable plotline. I’m sure you will enjoy this element to the film as well! One particular thing that I feel this movie lacked was character building. It felt as though the viewers were expected to remember the characters from the previous film and there was no additional depth added to the history of any characters, other than the Hatter.

Alice Through the Looking Glass is currently available on Blu-Ray & DVD which includes a Digital Copy as well.

Here’s a fun clip of the creation of the Hatter’s costume from the movie:

September is Baby Safety Month and during this month MAM wants to get information out to parents to increase consumer awareness about the safe selection and use of baby products.

Safe sleep practices is one of the most important ways a parent can protect their little one. Remembering to keep all loose blanketing, pillows, and toys out of baby’s crib is vital in keeping your baby safe while sleeping.

To reduce the risk of baby overheating be sure to dress baby appropriately for the temperature in the room and use breathable materials like cotton.

Darlin’ Deals Review ~ Clean Router! {Internet Protection}

CLean Router

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary Clean Router in exchange for my honest review. I was not persuaded to write a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own except for factual information about product.

Being a parent is the hardest job I’ve ever had. Yes, I called it a job. Of course its a blessing to raise children, but unlike most positions in the work force parenthood doesn’t come with an Employee Manual. You get a lot of hands on experience once you become a Mother or Father. Most of what parents learn about how to raise a child is through trial and error… lots and lots of error 😉 There are some things that are perfectly safe to learn through the trial and error process when it comes to raising children. Such as the process of figuring out what foods those tiny humans like by watching them throw all the peas on the floor.

However, there are some parenting mistakes that you don’t get a second chance with. One of those things is protecting their innocence. Things that are seen can never be unseen. So now that my kids are growing out of the throwing peas off the ledge of the highchair stage and moving into the realm of technological entertainment I have begun to research ways to ensure my children are protected from the multitude of inappropriate content that the internet seems to shove in our face daily.

Clean Router Image

In my search I came across a nifty invention called the Clean Router. Just like a generic router it hooks up to any PC or laptop.  The feature that sets it apart from a typical router is the software loaded on it that can be customized to block specific types of websites! In addition to blocking sites it also has personalized options that will include a Daily Email Report showing the previous day’s internet usage history.

clean Router 2

Clean Router was simple to install. Although I can’t take the credit for hooking it up – I leave all things technology based up to my husband for fear that I will completely ruin the computer with something as simple as plugging in the charger cord 😉 My husband showed me that as soon as he connected it to the laptop it prompted him to follow the easy 5-step set up process (as seen in image above).

I highly recommend purchasing this product if you have children, teens, or young adults in your home. Even though us mommas love to tease that we have eyes in the back of our heads and can see everything, we all know that our ability to watch every move our child makes is limited. So why risk the split second it takes for a child to sneak away and type a few words that they heard from the older kids on the playground into a search engine and forever remember an image of something intended for adult viewing only.

You can purchase Clean Router on their website and be sure to visit their Facebook page for more info on what this amazing product can do.

Groupon Goods Deals: Back to School Items! {+ Beauty, Toys, Clothing}

Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post written by Darlin’ Deals on behalf of Groupon. I was compensated for sharing this information.

As Summer quickly comes to an end (well not weather wise – its 100+ degrees here) children and teens will be heading back to school as early as August. As usual the Back to School aisles at stores are crowded and already picked over.. so why not shop online?

Did you know Groupon has more than event and location discounts? They also have a Groupon Goods section with tons of products to choose from!

While I was browsing the site I came across a few items that would be great to purchase for the school year ahead. Personalized labels are great for keeping track of your little one’s school belongings like pencil boxes, lunchboxes, crayon containers and more. If your child will be going into upper grades with more detailed art projects, crayons might not be the only medium used – Groupon Goods has a 48 count of markers in a variety of colors. Many schools now offer electronic based assignments, so to keep those iPads and tablets charged you might be interested in snagging a few extra cables from Groupon Goods. Since backpacks can become bottomless pits (much like a woman’s purse) organization products are crucial; Groupon has deals on handy bag organizers too.
Personalized Children's Name LabelsTriangle-Shaped Drawing Pens for Adult Coloring BooksApple 3.3Ft. Lightning-to-USB Cable (1-, 2-, or 3-Pack)Cosmetic Organizer

If Back to School products isn’t what you’re in search of, you’ll still want to check out Groupon Goods to find amazing prices on clothing, toys, home décor and more! I even spotted deals on beauty products and jewelry. Whatever you are looking for be sure to check out Groupon before heading out to stores because shopping from home is so convenient especially if you have small children like I do 😉

MAM Baby product $30 Gift Set Giveaway!

MAM

Disclaimer: This giveaway is sponsored by MAM and Darlin’ Deals is not responsible for product shipment, quality, or use. I was not persuaded to write a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own unless otherwise noted.

Every baby has their own preferences, starting right from birth. My son was a pacifier baby and my daughter was a thumb sucker. Of course I didn’t realize my daughter would be a thumb sucker until she was 5 months old. So that meant trying many, many, MANY varieties of pacis before she decided to show us that the whole time she would have just preferred her thumb. During this trial and error pacifier phase I came across a brand called MAM.

Surprisingly MAM pacifiers and teethers were the only thing that would soothe my daughter during the months before she figured out how to self-soothe with her own thumb. So it quickly became the only feeding brand used in our house. My daughter loves their bottles for the nipple design and I love their bottles for their unique sterilizing design that allows you to take apart the bottle and microwave it for 3 minutes with water in the base to provide a steam-action cleansing (genius!).
