Remember when I told you all about how we switched our business phone line to Walmart Family Mobile? Well, I wanted to follow up to that post and let you know just how we have been liking our new plan! We had originally switched our personal phone lines to Walmart Family Mobile and loved them so much that we decided to change our business line to the same service. What a great idea that was! We love how affordable the plan is, and the best part is that it is literally everything that we were looking for in a plan, but for way lower than we had found anywhere else! We here at Look Before Spending are, after all, into saving money, and we are happy to report that this plan does just that. Plus, we don't have to sacrifice what we want. Win-win! Walmart Family Mobile offers no contract, unlimited plans, making it easy to stay on budget! I am a huge believer that #FamilyMobileSaves. We can save on what we need so we can splurge (every once in a while) on what we want! That's our motto!

#FamilyMobileSaves #shop savings #cbias

With the money we have saved on our mobile plan, we were able to make a few fun purchases that we otherwise wouldn't have been able to, including buying ourselves a new video game console! Ours had conked out on us a while ago, and once we signed up for this plan, we kept putting part of the savings aside for fun. If we had been spending more money on a phone plan, this wouldn't have been possible! This has proven to be a fun time to spend with our family, and our house is the chosen spot for family gatherings now. No complaints here! ;)

delicious coffee by seattle's best #rubi2go #shop

Hello, my name is Zack and I am addicted to coffee. Hi, Zack! If I don't have my coffee in the morning, my day just isn't right. So when I found out about a new fantastic option to get coffee for a great low price, well of course I had to check it out! It's the Rubi coffee kiosk and one was just installed in our local grocery store! So now I can shop for my groceries and have a tasty and cheap pick-me-up in the process. Because we all know our beloved coffee shops can really make a dent in our wallets, so every once in a while it's nice to have a cheap but still great-tasting alternative!

The #Rubi2Go coffee kiosk is super simple to use. You just put in your money (only $1.00! What a steal!) and set a cup under the dispenser, then choose your flavor with the push of a button (they even have a seasonal pumpkin spice flavor that I'm going to try next time- yum!) and the machine brews the coffee for you and voila! You're ready to start your day. It's fast, simple, cheap and delicious! All good words. Rubi uses Seattle's Best coffee made from beans that are ground right at the kiosk when you order, so it is not some vending machine fake coffe, but real ground goodness! There are also milk and sweetener options available for personalization. How cool is that?! I will absolutely be making this a regular thing, as I am a sucker for a good deal and good quality coffee. This is a beautiful marriage of both of those things.

Autumn is here, and with it comes the world's obsession with pumpkins. There is no escaping it: pumpkins are everywhere! Pumpkin Spice Lattes are all over blogs and Instagram feeds, pumpkin patch visits have begun, pumpkin pancakes and cookies and soups are being made- it's inescapable! And so, we figured, alright then, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Thus, we are here today to share a fresh pumpkin recipe with you, our pumpkin-loving friends! We shopped for our pumpkin at Lucky Supermarket (our favorite place for all of our #FreshFinds) and came home and searched for a great recipe to make. When we saw this Alton Brown pumpkin bread recipe, we knew we had to try it.

We decided instead of bread, though, we wanted to make muffins, because muffins are to bread what cupcakes are to cake, and are just more fun in general. You understand. And thus, our delicious fresh pumpkin muffin recipe was born. I've transcribed it below, and tweaked it just a wee bit, in case you want to try it out for yourself!

Pumpkin Muffins

Yields about 24 muffins.

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups shredded fresh pumpkin

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
Oil (2) muffin tins generously.
Mix flour, cinnamon, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together.
In a separate bowl (I used my mixer), mix the sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla.
Combine both mixtures and fold in the shredded pumpkin.
Pour well-incorporated mixture into muffin tins, using an ice cream scoop.
Bake for about 30 minutes, until a toothpick comes out nearly clean, rotating halfway through.
Cool completely and remove from tins.
Eat two immediately. Errr.. that's what we did. ;)
