Make Your Road Trip Much More Enjoyable With Saucemoto!

Road TripWhen you go on a road trip, the chances are pretty high that you’ll be eating in your car from time to time.

The SkyClip Can Make Flying Much More Entertaining

flyingMany airline have removed seat back screens from their planes for shorter flights, opting to go with a cheaper alternative.

Rather than have to deal with upkeep on the screens, they’ve given passengers the ability to stream content like movies and TV shows directly to their own devices when flying.

When I’m going on a trip, I also like to download a bunch of things from Netflix which I can then view offline. Continue reading The SkyClip Can Make Flying Much More Entertaining

Product Review: The Tortuga Setout Packable Daypack

Picking the right gear is crucial to making travel more comfortable. When you’re traveling with kids, this is even more so the case.

I typically travel with a 60 liter North Face backpack and a 35 liter Cotopaxi Volta daypack. This is usually a good amount of space for my thing as well as some of the kid’s items.

My wife Kim always has a bag, but she doesn’t always want to carry a backpack when she ‘wears’ Theo in our Ergo (baby carrier). And the issue I have is that I don’t want to bring along a 35L daypack, just for a few things. Continue reading Product Review: The Tortuga Setout Packable Daypack

SprezzaBoxMonthly subscription boxes have become increasingly popular in recent years.

A couple of years back, I got Kim a subscription to Birchbox. The price seemed fair and Kim got to try out a bunch of items she probably wouldn’t have tried otherwise.

We also got Lucas a subscription to KiwiBox, a box with activities for kids which are somewhat educational. (If you sign up with my link you’ll get $10 off and I will too after your purchase.)

There are subscription boxes for lots of interests but I’ve avoided trying any out until just recently. I kept getting ads on Facebook and Instagram for SprezzaBox. Continue reading I Tried The Monthly Subscription SprezzaBox For Their Delta Airlines Box
