Finding Coupons

Since I started couponing a few months ago, the most commonly asked question I get is "Where do you find your coupons?" And honestly, there is no one answer. I will say that I have three main sources of coupons.

Newspapers: If you are serious about saving money with coupons, I recommend getting a Sunday paper. Without it, you're going to be spending a lot of time searching for coupons. The nice thing about the paper is you can get as many copies as you want. Personally, I choose to get two Sunday papers, one from each major newspaper here. This way, I get two copies of the coupons, plus any special coupon that one paper might have over the other. The downside to the paper, is you do have to pay for it. But I pay a couple of dollars per week, per paper, and if I even use a few coupons I have more than made up for this expense.

Online Databases: The internet is obviously an awesome resource when it comes to coupons. All you have to do is Google "coupons" and you will get more information then you will know what to do with. But, I do have a few favorite websites that I use to find coupons. These sites will usually have a database where you can find the current coupons, and where you can print coupons off. The nice thing is that these coupons are free (with the exception of paper and ink). The downside is you usually can only print one or two copies of each coupon off per computer, so your limited as to how many you can get. My favorite websites right now are:
Facebook: Most people are surprised to learn that Facebook is actually a great source of coupons, especially if you are looking for a particular brand. All you have to do is search for a particular brand on Facebook, and "like" it. A lot of time the manufacturers will have coupon offers listed on their page, or they will from time to time offer special coupons to their fans. But, act fast with these coupons. There is generally a print limit and once a certain number of people have printed them, they will be gone.

The Ultimate Montessori Toy List -- Birth to Five -- UPDATED 2020

When you are interested in Montessori, it can be difficult to know exactly what types of products you should get for your home. Or which types of "Montessori" materials are really worth the price. There are no rules about types of products can use the name Montessori which can add to the confusion. Not to mention, every toy manufacturer slaps the word "educational" on the package for good measure! 2020 UPDATE: This list is updated for another year! Enjoy a variety of Montessori friendly finds from both major retailers and smaller shops!  So, with this post, I'm going to try to help with this confusion! Here's a list of Montessori-friendly toys and materials for babies, toddlers and preschoolers.  First, let's clarify that there is no such thing as a "Montessori toy." Montessori never created toys, but only works for classroom settings. While there are many works that I recommend for home school use, you won't find these

Sensitive Periods from Birth to 6 - A Chart and Guide

Dr. Maria Montessori spent her life observing, studying, and writing about children. During her lifetime of work she discovered that young children move through a series of special times when they are particularly attracted to specific developmental needs and interests. She called these times, sensitive periods. During the sensitive period, children learn skills related to the sensitive period with ease. They don't tire of that work, but seek it, crave it and need it. When the sensitive period passes, this intense desire is gone, never to return.  That doesn't mean the skill is lost forever once the sensitive period is over. Instead, it just means that it will take a more conscious effort to learn. As Dr. Montessori explains,  This post contains affiliate links at no cost to you. "A child learns to adjust himself and make acquisitions in his sensitive periods. These are like a beam that lights interiorly a battery that furnishes energy. It is this sensibility which enables

Working from Home with Kids - A Montessori Schedule

One part of my life that I haven't talked a ton about here on The Kavanaugh Report is how I'm a work-from-home parent. Eight years ago I started to work at home while parenting full time. For the first several years, I worked as a legal writer while maintaining this space on the side. When Gus was born, I moved into working on sharing our Montessori life full time. It has blossomed into a full time career sharing content here, teaching courses, and now the podcast! Through it all, my kids have been home with me.  This all seems more relevant to so many of us now that Covid-19 has closed schools and forced parents to stay at home and work while caring for children. I'm not going to lie - it's tough. It's hard to balance work and kids, especially when children are used to a completely different routine. But, it's not impossible! And, it can even be enjoyable.  As I talk about in my podcast Shelf Help , we block our days into 3 hours groups. It helps
