Musical Birthday Cards by Apsenbox Review


Now with school back in session it will not be long before the birthday party invites start to arrive. I recently got to review a set of musical birthday cards from Apsenbox. These cards are a great value, you get 24 cards for $20, less than a $1 a card. I'm usually running out last minute before a birthday party to grab a card and spending $3-4, this really adds up over the course of the year.



This set of cards has both gender themed and gender neutral cards. My kids love musical cards, if I were to buy those cards (which I rarely do) they would cost me $6-8 each. These cards are going to make my life that much easier, which is always a plus. #birthdaycards

Spruce Bay Insulated Picnic Basket Review



After Spruce Bay sent me the beautiful tray a few weeks ago, they followed up by sending me a very useful insulated picnic basket. I was excited to receive this because I've been looking for one of these for a while. The really helpful feature of this basket is that it is collapsible, which means really easy to store.



The inside of the basket is insulated so it is perfect for both cold and hot meals on the go.


There are to wire structures on either side of the basket, you push them into place to create the full size basket. This was pretty easy to do and with food inside these wires stay put.


I also love the padding on the handles which makes carrying the basket a breeze.


Looking forward to many BBQs, picnics and fun outings with this basket.
