Best Coolers For Your BBQ

A good cooler is an important summer staple (no one wants warm beer and potato salad).  Food & Wine reviewed several leading coolers to come up with some of the best available.  

Best Top Performer: Yeti Tundra ($300 on Amazon)

Yeti performed well in ice and heat tests.  Yeti proved that if you put a premium on performance, this cooler is worth its $300 price tag.

Best Budget Performer: Coleman Xtreme ($39 on Amazon)

The Coleman Xtreme performed admirably under adverse conditions. It retained some ice, and while it didn’t stay as cool as the thicker, pricier brands in the heat test, it outperformed coolers in a similar class by more than a full degree. The Xtreme is also the least expensive of the bunch here. The 52-quart model costs just $39.99, and the smaller 28-quart model is a bit less at $36

Best Premium Small Cooler: Igloo Sportsman ($128 on Amazon)

Compared to other premium coolers in its size class, the Igloo Sportsman is a tremendous deal. For a bit more than half the price of a comparably-sized Orca or Yeti, you get 20 quarts of solid performance. The over-sized drain plug on the Sportsman is also an excellent piece of design work. Of all the coolers tested this is the only one that was actually easy to drain.

Your Favorite IPA Beer Might Be Harder To Find

Anheuser-Busch InBev, the biggest beer company in the world, announced they will no longer supply South African-grown hops to brands the company doesn't own.  Since each beer is made with it's own distinct blend of hops, not having the ability to get these South African-grown hops could result in independent craft breweries not longer being able to make their recipes.  AB InBev cited low crop yields in South Africa as part of their decision but there is now a debate in beer world (big business vs. craft breweries).  I suggest enjoying your favorites while you still can.

Hot Dog Recall

Check your fridge.  The company that makes Nathan’s and Curtis hot dogs is recalling more than 210,000 pounds of the product after metal shards were found in some of its packages, according to U.S. authorities.

John Morrell and Co., of Cincinnati, notified the federal government on May 19 after it received three separate complaints of small metal scraps in a batch of hot dogs it manufactured.

The recall applies to 14-ounce packages of ‘Nathan’s Skinless 8 Beef Franks’ with a use-by date of Aug. 19, 2017, as well as to 16-ounce sealed packs labeled ‘Curtis Beef Master Beef Franks,’ which have a use-by date of June 15, 2017, the USDA said in a press statement. The packages were shipped to outlets nationwide and have ‘EST. 296’ printed on their sides.

Authorities have advised consumers to throw away the hot dogs or take them back to the store for a refund.

Birthday Party Planning Tips and Ideas

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!
Birthday parties are such an important event in a child's life.  As a parent we want to provide a day filled with memories and fun for our children.  The reality is that birthday parties can be a huge burden on our pocket books.  Here are some tips and ideas to help you put together an enjoyable party that won't break the bank!

Build a Better Birthday Budget
Set a budget for the part and keep with it.  It's really easy to get wrapped up in the hype of  parties and over spend.  Some things to consider in your birthday budget are:
  • Invitations
  • Cake
  • Decorations
  • Napkins/plates/etc
  • Drinks
  • Meal
  • Activity/Location
  • Party Favors for Guests
  • Gift
  • Birthday Outfit

Planning is Key
If you wait till the last minute to plan the party you will over spend.  The best way to keep a party on budget is to start planning at least 3 months in advance.  This will allow you time to shop for deals on the items for the party and not have to over pay on last minute items.

Ways To Save
Invitations:  With advanced planning you can get some great custom invitations for a low price.  I love sites like TinyPrints, York Photo Lab, and Shutterfly

Location:  Find locations that will host a party for free or at a low cost.  Examples include parks, churches, community locations.  Other locations to consider are pizza parlors, cupcake shops, amusement parks, and movie theaters.  These locations often offer a "birthday bundle" where activity items and refreshments are included in the price.  These can be a good savings for a busy parent who wants a low maintenance party.

Some deals currently available include:
Arkansas Skatium: Skating Packages up to 57% Off
Playtime Pizza Birthday Deals

Cake: Look for deals at local bakeries on cakes or even opt for cupcakes as a lower cost option.  Be sure to checkout Groupon for additional deals.  Right now you can save up to 60% Off Cakes and Cupcakes at Mickey's Cakes & Sweets!

Freebies: Get a free or discounted meal and other activities for you or your child's birthday.  Most of the time you just need to sign up for the rewards program at your favorite restaurant or store.  Checkout our full list of Birthday Freebies.

Add Personal Touches
Make a party memorable with personalization.  Order unique party favors, custom banners, treat bags and more.  Some of my favorite sites to find personalized deals are Groopdealz and Jane.com.

Don't Fall Prey to Parent Guilt
We all want our children's birthday parties to be the highlight of the year.  Just remember that a fun, low key, stress free party will provide the same positive results as an over the top, high cost party.  Protect yourself from parental guilt by cutting yourself some slack, staying on budget, and using the special day to spend quality time with your family.
