But that’s okay. That’s good! Motherhood is a miracle of its own, it doesn’t have to happen by biology. The first place we give birth from is the heart. Some moms are blessed to give birth twice, from the heart and from their bodies, others only give birth from their hearts.
It’s not a lesser birth, though. Regular adoption and spiritual adoption are just as strong. Read More
But did you know most one-item coupons can be used on multiple orders?
Back in December 2012, GoDaddy released a coupon code to purchase a .COM domain at $0.90. The coupon only worked for one domain name and then GoDaddy applied a special discount to the remainder of the order.
The coupon was great, but I needed three .COM domains for my fiction sites and I only had a handful of money in my credit card.
What to do, in a situation like that?
Way #1 – Try The Same Coupon On Multiple Orders
This is what I did on GoDaddy.
It went through!
Awesome! I could purchase my three .COM domain names, one for each order, with a total of $2.70 plus ICANN fee.
I was lucky to say the least!
There are coupons that don’t work this way because the releaser restricted the code usage per order, but you can’t know unless you try, can you?
Give yourself a chance!
Way #2 – Get Multiples Of The Same Coupon
This is an alternative way to use one-item coupons on more than one order. The video by Allthingscouponing describes a method to get multiple copies of the same coupon to purchase offline items.
How did she get so many cat treats coupons to redeem in FREE food for her kitty? She found an eBay seller who sent her the collection in exchange of a couple bucks. Then she used all the coupons in a single order. Cool, right?
But there are coupons you can’t redeem all together. You will have to use one per order. I added a few tips to smart multiple ordering after Way #3.
Way #3 – Go Hunt For Multiple-Use Coupons
In case you got no luck with ways #1 and #2, there’s still hope with multiple-use coupons— yes, those coupons you can use multiple times without restrictions.
They are a bit of a rarity, but websites like Retail Me Not and Coupon Network can come to your rescue.
Offline, all you need to do is to get multiple copies of the same coupon. If your favorite brand or store has a webpage with printable coupons, make sure to print more than one copy of the coupon.
Tips To Make More SMART Small Orders
No matter the Way you pick, it’s a safe choice to divide your order into smaller sub-orders. Coupon usage depends on the store or online retailer and you may run into more or less resistance against multiple or ‘extreme’ couponing, so your best bet is playing on the safe side.
Prioritize your orders. Buy the most urgent items first.
Use coupons in order of expiration. You’ll save yourself a headache when you have to scramble to get your item right before the deal closes!
If your account is allowed a maximum of same-item orders, ask a friend to buy more items for you with their account (of course, give them YOUR coupon/s to use!).
If time allows for it, go shopping with coupons on alternate days— so you decrease your chances to encounter resistance at the checkout!
Any other smart couponing ideas you developed yourself?

While the onset of the ‘tween and teen’ age phase in any child’s life is usually subject to momentary blues, certain tell-tale signs that are similar to that of any occasional sadness or frustration could indirectly pinpoint to a more severe condition – teenage depression.
What with so many conflicts in terms of mood and personality, how is the average Mom or Dad to distinguish between the routine tantrums and any lethal implications of depression? Elaborated herewith is a short guide on how to determine so and tackle this situation; feel free to read on and know more!
First things first, what are some of the symptoms that can characterize depression in a teenager?
Although all teenagers suffer mood swings at some point of time or the other, mentally robust boys and girls are nonetheless able to pull through normal daily activities such as school and outings with friends fairly smoothly. In the case scenario of their depressed counterparts however, a keener observation is bound to reveal utter stagnation in terms of living and thriving, out of which include Bateaux gonflables:
Frequent outbursts of crying
A lesser amount of communication with others – always spending time alone
An unbalanced appetite
Suicidal thoughts/feelings, majorly expressed by means of journal entries, poetry or drawings
An extremely volatile behavior
Dependency on a particular object or activity (this could be anything from pornography to drugs)
A lack of interest in appropriate aspects of life such as lessons or family
Health-related complications such as aches and pains (in some cases, even beyond-average low blood pressure readings have been reported).
If you’ve sensed one or more of the above symptoms prevailing in your child, what are the necessary remedial actions that could be taken?
While the solutions are available, a holistic approach to sustainable recovery requires a substantial amount of effort and patience on your behalf as a parent. Therefore, keeping yourself calm and composed regardless of how traumatizing any situation relating to your son/daughter’s depression may be is key to achieving a desired state of mind for him/her.
On a fundamental level, here are some suggestions that may prove to be effective for the betterment of your teenage child:
(i) A one-on-one conversation with your teen: It’s most prudent to sit your child down and lovingly ask him/her as to what seems to be constantly bothering him/her and contributing to sadness. Offer to help without being judgemental. The last thing that your child will ever want to hear is nagging or unsolicited advice.
(ii) The help of a doctor: Consulting a family physician for the mental wellbeing of your child is absolutely ideal. Better yet, if you even have a family psychiatrist or counsellor at your call, resorting to get treatment henceforth is a valid option too.
(iii) The power of diversion: No matter what the woe, encouraging your child to participate in a leisure-oriented activity – be it dancing or Yoga is wonderful to help shift any negative focus far away from anything that would be troubling him/her inside.
