Kitchen Aid Professional Mixer

KitchenAid Professional 600 Series 6-Qt Stand Mixer

I decided to spoil myself for my birthday this year with this fancy KitchenAid Professional 6-Qt Stand Mixer. I’d been toying with the idea of getting a stand mixer this past year, since starting to bake large batches of gluten free cookies for our son.

With prices typically between $299 and $499, depending on the model it was going to have to be a great price at the right time.

At just $259 I got this professional mixer that was normally $499 along with free shipping and no sales tax.

If you’d like to order a KitchenAid KP26M1PSL Professional 600 Series 6-Quart Stand Mixer, Silver that features 10 mixing speeds and comes with the dough hook, flat beater, and wire whip attachments they are currently still selling for this low price.

I need to tell you that I did not get paid to write this blog post.  I will earn a commission if you choose to purchase from the link in this post.

G’Day LA: Tourism Soars With Help From Australia | NBC Los Angeles

LA tourism numbers have been released, and once again Australia has hopped in as the front-runner in generating the most overseas visitors in Los Angeles.

In 2011, approximately 26.9 million people visited Los Angeles, surpassing the 2007 record of 25.9 million visitors, according to Carol Martinez, vice president of communications for the Los Angeles Convention and Visitors Bureau. That’s an increase of 4.2 percent from 2010.

“This has occurred for the past couple of years, but there are a number of reasons that make Los Angeles is an attractive destination for Australians. One, being the boost in business linkages,” said the Australian Consul-General Chris De Cure.

via G’Day LA: Tourism Soars With Help From Australia | NBC Los Angeles.

Australia has been the front-runner in generating the most overseas visitors to Los Angeles for the past two years.   I’d have to agree with the writer that the increase would have a lot to do with the stronger Australian dollar.

When I moved to the US in late 2001 the Australian dollar bought just $0.50 US.  Today that same dollar will buy $1.04 US.

So I’d like to remind all my Aussie friends and family, especially those that have never visited.., that 2012 is the year for you to get on that Qantas jet and come to Los Angeles.

Save Time and Money This Holiday Season

I have a confession to make, I used to go a little crazy with the Black Friday sales. Now that I’ve had 10 years experience I think I’ve almost mastered holiday shopping for our family.

The hardest part for me every year is not to overshop as I start early, and getting home by 6:30am so my husband can go to work. As the kids are older I can’t take them with me anymore… unless we are shopping for daddy.

I just realized that the holidays are fast approaching. It’s time to start making those lists!

To get the best value for your money, requires a little planning.

Look online and find the best prices for the items you want to buy and write them down. Then start checking the weekly ads. When a great deal comes up grab it. Save your receipts (I highly recommend taping them to the item) in case you change your mind or you get a great doorbuster deal so that you can return them.

For example Toys R Us is running a Buy 2 Get the 3rd Free promotion on Video Games at the moment. Our son would like a DS this year and many of the games in the promotion were already reduced in price. I got three games for $42 including taxes and I’ll pick them up in the store. That way I don’t have to worry about the UPS guy leaving a toy store box at the front door and I didn’t have to pay for shipping. I’m on the lookout for a DS now. I’m not sure if I’ll get one in the weeks leading up to Black Friday or on the day.

Ordering online and picking up in store is a great option at Toys R Us and Walmart. It allows you to get the best prices and avoid the shipping costs. Your items are waiting for you at the store to pick up. One reason I do this is because I’ve found that Legos are cheaper online at both stores, sometimes up to $10 less. Toys R Us will price match to it’s own website but I’ve found it to be time consuming if you get the wrong checker and I’ve often ended up back at customer service getting a refund because there was a mistake. There may be a smaller selection available for store pick up but it beats driving from store, to store looking for that one, must have item.

I should mention that I found one snag with this on Black Friday for some high demand online doorbusters as stores have accidently oversold items and buyers were not notified until afterwards. Personally I got a fantastic deal on a large toolbox for my husband and got free shipping from Sears a few years ago.

My plan for our holiday list is like this. Start scanning the weekly ads for deals on our list. Keep the receipts for price matches or return if they go on sale in the next 60 days. As the Black Friday ads start popping up on the internet I check to see if I’ve gotten a good deal and start making my Thursday night shopping plans. Last year I got a great deal on a cricut machine for our sons teacher.

This year I also plan on keeping track of our total spend and all our items to avoid going overboard like last year. We are saving for a family vacation so the kids are more than happy to get a few less items this year.

Have you started your holiday shopping?

Free Practice SAT Exam – June 18th Thousand Oaks

I have included below an email from a local entrepreneur who is attending the University of Notre Dame and offering SAT testing and classes this summer in Thousand Oaks.

This summer, I’ve been selected to bring Ivy Insiders SAT test preparation program to the Thousand Oaks area.  Ivy Insiders programs are offered through Revolution Prep, an innovative test prep company that is changing the way thousands of students around the country approach standardized tests. I will be teaching two intensive group SAT prep classes this summer, as well as offering private tutoring and hosting an upcoming free event in the area.

What are Ivy Insiders programs?
Ivy Insiders programs were founded at Harvard in 2003 with a mission to help high school students conquer the SAT using the first-hand insights of top college test-takers. Each summer, Revolution Prep selects student-entrepreneurs from the country’s top universities to return to their hometowns to manage and teach their SAT prep businesses. The Revolution Ivy Insiders program has provided me with instructor training, management assistance, and business tools so that I can take on my own growing business this summer!

Why am I doing this?
The Revolution Prep/Ivy Insiders program is a perfect fit for me. As many of your know, I am no stranger to standardized tests. I’ve worked hard to excel on them through the years, and in the process have gained what I think are some unique insights into how to improve as a test-taker. The idea of being able to pass on my expertise to high school students so that they can succeed in the college admissions process is exhilarating. Just as exciting is the prospect of using a skill I currently have – standardized test taking – to acquire a new set of skills – business management!

Why do I need your help?
Over the last five years, Ivy Insiders programs have built one of the strongest track records in the test prep, helping nearly 10,000 students in over 40 states raise their SAT scores by 257 points on average.

I need your help to spread the word that I will be bringing this incredible program to the Thousand Oaks area this summer!

I currently have a free SAT exam workshop scheduled for Saturday, June 18. This will give students an opportunity to take a full-length practice exam with no prior preparation to determine the areas in which they most need improvement. Beginning the following week, I will hold two consecutive group SAT prep classes, each consisting of 18 hours of lecture and 5 full-length practice exams. Additionally, private tutoring is available for students looking for a more individualized approach to test prep.

How can you help me?
I would be honored and grateful to receive your support as a “word-of-mouth” advocate for my business this summer. How can you do this?

1.     Spread the word by email! Email friends and family of yours who might be interested in SAT prep this summer. Attach the information sheet below and pass along the discount code “CA59E1”, which will give them $50 off any program they sign up for this summer.

2.     Spread the word in-person! Again, anyone you know who might be interested in SAT prep this summer – let them know what I’m doing!

Please visit my personal instructor page at http://www.revolutionprep.com/ivy/courtney_t for more details on my course offerings. For questions, comments, or more information, email courtney_taylor@ivyinsiders.com or call the Revolution Prep central office at (877) 738-7737. Once again, feel free to pass along the $50 discount code “CA59E1”.

Thanks so much for your help and support!

Leap Frog Tag Reader

TAG Reading System

The Tag Reader is another great product from Leap Frog.  Leap Frog Tag Reader

As children touch the Tag Reader to the pages of specially printed storybooks, words talk, pictures sing and stories live out loud, engaging children’s senses to make reading a rich, fulfilling experience.

There are over 40 books and games based on favorite TV, movie and classic tales to choose from.  For the learn to read books the Tag will help your child sound out the letters in each word.  With the story books your child has the choice of having a page read to them and following along or touching each word as they read the page.

Each book includes comprehension questions that are disguised as games.  Even after your child has mastered reading each book they can continue to benefit from the comprehension games.

The new Tag Reader holds audio for up to 10 books at a time. Just connect the Tag Reader to your computer with the included USB cable, download the audio for your Tag books and drag-and-drop up to 10 of your child’s favorite stories onto your Tag Reader.

Each time you connect the Tag Reader to the computer your child’s play is uploaded to their online profile allowing you to see their progress in reading and comprehension skills.   This includes how long they read each book and the percentage of questions they got right.

We got our first Tag a few years ago and both children have their own along with a set of headphones.  Our oldest is in second grade and is almost ready to say goodbye to his Tag.  His sister is 5 and in Kindergarten and she just loves the new learn to read books.

Some people may be a bit concerned about the price of the Tag Reader and the books.  If you are willing to shop around you can get some great deals.

Here are just a few Tag Reader deals available now:

Starting November 21st – Tag Books are buy 1 get 1 free at Target.  Normally priced at $13.99, some books are reduced to $9.99
Toys R Us has had the Tag pens on sale for $29.99 which is a $10 savings off their $39.99 price.

To keep up on the latest deals be sure to sign up at http://Leap Frog.com for their emails.  They have frequent sales and a fantastic clearance section.  Quite often shipping is free with an order of $50 or more so it makes sense to stock up on sale or clearance items.
We got the Tag Learn to Read Super Book Pack which contains 19 books for just $53.99 along with FREE shipping.

If you have more than 1 child you will need a Tag pen for each child.  I would also recommend the headphones so that multiple children can use their Tags at the same time.

Feel free to share any coupon codes or deals for the Tag pen or books.
