Im so excited that this is now available for your iPhone and Android devices!!

Have you ordered your GrooveBook Yet? Get some pictures printed to make a photo album for Mother’s Day. Im excited to get pictures printed from our family vacation. This is one area of my life I want to improve. I need more PRINTED pictures. Digital pictures are nice  – but I want pictures I can hold!

If you are like our family – you have a ton of pictures on your cell phone that you never print. That is why I am so excited about the free GrooveBook app for your iPhone and Android phone. You download the app and then you can send up to 100 photos a month to be printed. They will come in a nice little book. The prints come in a 4.5 x 6.5 photo book. Plus the pictures are even perforated so you can easily remove them and give them away, put them in a frame, or use for scrapbooking!

Each month you can upload the pictures you want to print and they will print them for FREE. You just pay $2.99 for shipping and processing. That’s less then 3 cents a print! They think you are going to love it so much they want to ship you your first order for free. Just use code SAVINGGROOVE and your will get your first book completely FREE! 

If you don’t like GrooveBook, you can cancel anytime by emailing But I don’t know why you would want to cancel. I am always complaining that we never print our pictures. This awesome app will help make sure we get our pictures printed!

I like this idea better than making a photo book. Photo books are nice but they can be a lot of work. With this easy app you just send the photos you want to print and they show up in your mailbox within 7 days!

How to get this deal

  • Download the GrooveBook App (search the app store)
  • Use code SAVINGGROOVE when you sign up and shipping will be FREE!*
  • Send 100 photos to be printed
  • Receive your book within 7 days

I think you are going to love this! You can even order extra books and have them sent to your family members for just $2.99!

Tip – the first month you need to add 100 pictures to be printed or you will not get to submit the photos. You can get multiple copies of each print.

So what do you think? Are you as excited about this app as I am? It will be coming soon to Android.

*They do have you enter your credit card information to be used for future orders. If you cancel your account – you will never be charged.

My 2 Week Meal Plan (March 15)

by Janell on March 17, 2013

I have started to publish my 2 week meal plan. For our family, it’s a lot easier to plan out our meals for 2 weeks. That way the only reason we need to go to the store is to buy things like milk, eggs, and produce. We are starting a garden. We are growing tomatoes, cilantro, red peppers, and zucchini. We are not very good at growing things but we are gonna try!

Here’s my plan for the week. I am trying a few new things so I can publish another set of 5 recipes for the crock pot that you can prep in an hour and have dinner for 5 nights! I can say that having crock pot meals in the freezer has helped so much. I don’t have any excuse to not make dinner. I just pull the bag from the freezer and dinner is (pretty much) done! Dinner time is so much less stressful!

I keep a list on the fridge and each morning we pick out our dinner based on our day. For example, on Wednesday I have a dentist appointment so we will  definitely be having a crock pot dinner!

Delicious Pot Roast

Beef Burritos with Cilantro Lime Rice (Im gonna take a better picture!)


Crock Pot Ribs

 Chicken Tinga Tostadas

Spaghetti Casserole

Chicken Parmesan (This is my go-to meal when we have company visiting.)

Kelle’s Pork Dinner (My sister threw some stuff in the crock pot and said it was delicious – so Im gonna try it.) mashed potatoes and veggies
Chicken Pot Pie (So good! I will share the recipe next week.)
Honey-Teriyaki Chicken wild rice and veggies
Salmon/pasta (Adults eat salmon and kids eat pasta)veggies
Tamale Casserole (new crock pot recipe)
Creamy Chicken over pasta (new crock pot recipe)
London broil on the grill with twice baked potatoes and grilled onions and peppers
Beef Stew
Mango Salsa Chicken (new crock pot recipe)
Easter dinner

So that’s my plan! I love having a plan for dinner.

I’ve started a meal planning board on Pinterest. I will do my best to Pin my plans on this board. If you don’t have a Pinterest account – send me your email so I can invite you. You will love it!

Are you looking for more ways to save time and money in the kitchen? Check out Part 1Part 2Part 3, and Part 4  of my 1 Hour + 1 Mess = Crock Pot recipes.  If you would like to know when more recipes will be available you can sign up for my email newsletter.
