Florida Tix: Ways to Save on Your Holiday to Florida


A little over a year ago our family took a vacation to Disneyland and southern California and we had an absolute blast.  Now that we've discovered the joy of being some place fun, and warm, the planning has begun for our next vacation.  Since the sun and beach was such a hit our girls we'd love to check out Disney World in Florida - I'm all for it!  Florida is the ideal destination for family holidays. Home to Walt Disney World, Universal Studios and Sea World it houses some of the most popular tourist attractions in the world. For sun worshippers and thrill seekers alike, Florida has something for everyone. Needless to say, Disneyland needs no introduction. However, if you’re keen to spend your summer in the Sunshine state you may need an intro to budgeting. If you’re worried a trip to Florida will cause a major dent in your pocket read on to find great ways to save cash on you trip using FloridaTix.

Tickets to the aforementioned theme parks can really add up. Those wanting to visit one of the many theme parks on offer should invest in finding deals with online ticket resellers. For Universal tickets, a one-day pass to Universal Studios and Island of Adventure is almost the same price as a 14-day pass to both theme parks plus admission to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter on a ticket-reselling site. If you’re keen to visit several theme parks on your holiday go in search for Orlando ticket deals online. Many of these ticket reselling websites will offer discounts for bundle purchases. Remember these sites are competing with major theme parks for ticket sales, so they have to provide you with an incentive!

Another major cost for your summer holiday to Florida will go towards flight tickets. Flight tickets are absolutely essential if you live outside Florida. Luckily, travel planning site Fare Compare has done research to find the cheapest time to fly. Everyone knows flying economy is cheaper and which airlines are more “budget” than others. But the day of the week and time of day you fly can also affect ticket prices. Using their historical airfare database, Fare Compare found Wednesday to be the cheapest day to fly, followed by Tuesday and Saturday. The most expensive being Friday and Sunday. They also found that typically the first flight out is the cheapest, followed by during/after lunch. Not only do your actual flight details affect air-fare, the time of day and day of the week you purchase your ticket can have an effect on price as well. Fare Compare found Tuesday at 3pm Eastern generally has the cheapest tickets on sale. So be on the lookout Tuesday afternoon for your discounted fare, and make sure to snatch up any deals quickly as Thursdays are when most discounted prices go up. With discounts in airfare and tickets there’s no reason not to go to Florida this summer!

Miss Poodle Perm, That's Me!

Jill of Scary Mommy is doing a linky post about school pictures. You know the ones, possibly you didn't smile a sweet smile, just the smirk of panic. Or you didn't know it was picture day because you had been out sick for a week and you show up in your most comfortable shirt and bed-head. (Yep. That happened to me. The smile was good though!)

Well, my scanner isn't working or else I would post a particular picture from Freshman year. Since I don't have a visual, here's the story:

I remember my first day of High School. Actually what I remember is the picture taken of me leaving for my first day of High School. I'm wearing a brave smile, but the hair, the hair, my hair style was a nightmare.
My two best friends and I were going to be attending a High School out of our district. That was stressful enough. To add to this new-ness we wanted new looks as well. K. was going to sport the Argyle and Alligator shirt look. W. was going for 'All Monogrammed, Al…

How to Find the Safest Gear for your Baby

Nothing compares to the joys of being a parent. Having a newborn in the family brings couples closer and makes the entire household more cheerful and interesting. But as we all know, being a parent is not just about spending time with your baby. More than anything else, it also requires exerting a lot of effort to make sure that your baby is always safe and free from potential hazards. To further help you in this endeavor, here are some useful tips for finding the safest gear for your baby as you go through various baby product guides:

Opt for a non-toxic gear. The first thing you need to check is the composition of the safety gear. What is the material made from? Is it non-toxic? Be sure that it is because babies have a strong tendency to put everything they see or touch in their mouths. It goes without saying that a safety gear that is made from toxic materials could poison your baby, in the long run, so be very careful about the safety gears you purchase.

Yes, I'm a Dork for the Grocery Outlet

So our neighborhood was notified that a Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market would be opening in the new year.  I can't tell you how thrilled I was to hear this!  And when I received my friendly Grocery Outlet postcard with my friendly notice of the friendly festivities for their Grand Opening I actually put it on my calendar.  I knew exactly where I was going to be on Saturday morning.

Whoo Hoo! There was a giant "Wheel - o - Bargains".  I spun and won a $1 off my purchase.  Oh man I can't tell you how happy I am when I get money off my purchase.  yeah baby.  We were one of the first 1000 customer's so my husband and I received free Grocery Outlet - Bargain Market reusable bags!  (Rob was so excited.  Yes, he can be a dork sometimes too.)

What is it about this place?  Most of the items are things that I've never heard of, or have any interest in, however I am drawn to it like a kid to a candy store.  (Or better yet, like a wine lovin' mom who's found some…
