• You guys have heard of Ebates, right? If not, Ebates basically gives you money back in your pocket for shopping online. For example, if there’s an Ebate’s offer for 10% back at Old Navy and you buy something online, you get 10% of your total purchase in a check from Ebates. Awesome, right? It might sound too good to be true, but it’s totally legit. You really, truly get cash back for shopping online. No points or credits or anything like that—straight up cash money! [Disclosure: The Ebates link above is a referral link, so I get referral dollars if you sign up.]



    If you’re a long-time reader of CNC, you might remember my obsession with Ebates. I actually still love it and use it whenever I shop online, so I was psyched when Ebates recently reached out to me about another giveaway on CNC. That said, here’s your chance to win $100 cash! It’s back-to-school time, so I’m sure we all could use an extra 100 bucks, right?


    Check out the great back-to-school deals you can get from Ebates!

    Q says “thumbs up” to our first stroller bootcamp class! We had a blast! My friend Kerrie runs an all-women’s bootcamp (FYI: it’s very CrossFit-esque) in Weymouth and she recently added an outdoor stroller bootcamp to her class offerings. I’ve wanted to try it out with Q for weeks now, but I needed to make sure […]
