How To Save and Not Sacrifice Plus #Giveaway

Disclaimer: I have been given a gift package in exchange for this post. All opinions are my own.

As you all know, I have two little ones now. With the addition of a new baby, changes are inevitable- as we all know. Even though our heart grows to contain all of the additional love, many things shrink. Our budgets, available space, open time, and even patience shrinks.

Perrigo Nutritionals can help alleviate the stress to our budgets, and even time. No more researching to find out what is the most economical value in foods, while still keeping the appropriate nutritional value. Perrigo Nutritionals creates a healthy, more inexpensive alternative to the national food brands. Find Perrigo Nutritionals in the baby food isles of your supermarket under their store brands, such as Wal-Mart's Parent's Choice and Target's Up and UP.

I am a Parent's Choice mom myself and could not be more impressed with the continuous quality of the brand. Everything I have tried is just as good as the national brand, but better because the high price tag is not there. After experiencing the other store brands, I feel confident in my purchase regardless of the store I shop at.

  1. I was all about the Parent's Choice too...a friend had told me that the Target diapers weren't that good and not to bother lol.

  2. I love the Parent's Choice brand. With 4 kids, I have to be able to save money but still feed nutritionally.
