Let Sears Bring More to You #MoreToYou AD

by Jill Bender on September 3, 2014

Sears bean bag1You would think that as my house-size downsizes and my boys move out that I have much more time on my hands, but that isn’t necessarily true. Because not only do I still have my youngest at home who plays competitive soccer, but we added a puppy to the house AND I went back to school!! Yeah, what was I thinking? So when I was approached about sharing the sponsored Sears ‘More to You’ campaign I was all over it because….

We ALL need a break every now and then and we just need things to be a little easier.

Sears is making things easier with their Shop Your Way mobile app and In-Vehicle Pickup service, but Sears wants to give you even more!

Tweet @Sears with something that you want and use the hashtag #MoreToYou and they might just give you more. See how they gave more to single mom Breanna!! You might want to have a tissue handy. Just sayin’.

How cool is that?!

I know that I have always been able to count on Sears for great value, great products, huge selection and a great rewards program, but they have stepped it up with their Shop Your Way mobile app and super convenient In-Vehicle Pickup service!

Yep, you can place your order through the Shop Your Way mobile app, or online, and pick up your order without ever leaving your vehicle! You can pickup your order at any store and you will have your items within five minutes of your arrival without ever leaving your car. That’s my kind of convenience and time saver with the craziness happening in my life!

 Sears Shop Your Way App

Since my older two boys are out of the house we have more room and my littlest and I have begun putting together a “game room” and he desperately wants a bean bag chair. I know you’d think I could find an hour to go in search of a bean bag, but I can’t. Not only that, but with having to leave the puppy all day while I’m at work I feel bad leaving him when I don’t really have to and I’m not sure Sears would take too kindly to this overworked mom dragging her stinky post-soccer practice kid and rowdy puppy through their store to find a bean bag!

So…. I found a great bean bag online and am going to pick it up on my lunch break with their new In-Vehicle Pickup service. It’s as easy as clicking the FREE store pickup button. And, oh yeah, it is FREE!

I know you’re already brainstorming the things that you would love to just swoop in and pick up at Sears with this new In-Vehicle Pickup service so what’s tops on your list?

What are you going to ask @Sears for with the #MoreToYou hashtag?!

I am typically a practical gift giver, but rather than just give something practical, like a box of baby diapers, at a baby shower, I love to get creative!! Practical is good, but practical and super cute is even better! What better gift than a box of Parent’s Choice baby diapers transformed into cute gifts!?

And guess what!? My sister is pregnant with her first baby so I am finally going to be an auntie and I had a baby shower to get to!

Parents Choice Diapers for a diaper wreath and butterfly BabyDiapersSavings shop

And!?!? She’s having a girl so I’m going to go a little crazy with the girly stuff after having three boys of my own. My cousin did her baby shower a few weeks ago and #CollectiveBias challenged me to get creative so I got busy and made some cute (and practical) baby shower decorations like the diaper wreath and a diaper butterfly. I probably would have had to make a snail or something out of diapers if she was having a boy so I’m thankful that we’re expecting a little Lily. icon smile

Parents Choice Diaper Butterfly BabyDiapersSavings shop

I guess I am a practical gift giver because I’m also on a budget. Being on a budget and being practical does not have to mean plain and simple and lower quality, and that’s why I started this blog… Because while I am on a strict budget, I don’t want to have to give anything up. Not quality and not quantity.

So I printed off this $1.50 off Parent’s Choice baby diapers coupon and headed to Walmart to pick up a box of size 2 Parent’s Choice baby diapers. There were 160 diapers in the size 2 box, I didn’t use all of them, but my sister sure will. Ha! I went with a bigger size because I thought that if others brought diapers as gifts that they would probably bring smaller sizes, but it turned out that size 2 was perfect for the wreath. Not too big and not too small.

I chose Parent’s Choice Diapers because they are not just an amazing value at just under $20 per box, which is a savings of about $240 per year, but because of their increased diaper absorbency that is equal/better than national brands. They also have a wetness indicator. See? Practical and budget friendly. (EXTRA budget friendly with that $1.50 off Parent’s Choice baby diapers coupon.) And let me not forget, CUTE!

The wreath and butterfly were so stinking cute that we used them as decorations at the baby shower. I put the butterfly on the lower shelf and the wreath sitting on chair next to the tables. So girly and so perfect.

Love that wreath? That super cute, practical, and budget friendly wreath, I mean?

Here the instructions to make one of of your own. It is very easy and you can get away with spending right about $30-35 for the entire wreath. The cost to make the wreath with Parent’s Choice Diapers is right about $25 including the wreath wire. (Don’t forget the $1.50 off Parent’s Choice baby diapers coupon.)

The part that can vary in cost is the goodies that you choose to tie to the wreath. They can be as costly, or as budget friendly as you want. As many, or as few as you want too. Just be sure to go with bright colors. I, personally, think that a plain diaper wreath could be cute too if you use some colorful ribbons.

Materials:

  • Parent’s Choice Diapers (about $20 for a box at Walmart)
  • 18″ Wire wreath frame ($3.99 at Michael’s)
  • Ribbon
  • Various brightly colored accessories to decorate the wreath – toys, onesies, pacifiers, bibs, washcloths, teethers, lotions…

Instructions:

Step 1: Start with a wire wreath frame.

Make sure the open diaper end is facing outside the wreath circle like so.
