Some Amazing Deals for Fall with Groupon #Groupon #ad


This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

Can you believe it's fall already? Well, I sure can't. Leaves are turning colors, Halloween decorations are being discussed, and pumpkin spice is BACK. This also means that certain expenses will arise for you (it sure does for me this time of year).

Groupon is a fantastic place to start looking for deals on things like what you need for your home, gifts, and even school supplies. I think that's pretty amazing! Start your s earch by following this link here and see what you can find.

Spending just a few minutes on the site, and I found some pretty awesome deals. Seriously, just check out this deal for AA and AAA batteries (purchase it now!)-




One thing that's pretty awesome is that with Groupon and buying these products is that you can get so much variety - clothes, workout gear, jewelry, things for the kitchen and so much more. In case you are looking for things for college, check out these sheets that are at an awesome deal (purchase these now!)



And don't forget your pets! If you are adding a new furry member to your family, check out this pet gate (purchase now) -


These are just the beginning! I think this should be the one of the first places you check out for fair prices on things that you know that you will need for your home or for gift ideas. The prices are hard to beat. I think a lot of people assume Groupon is just for buying deals on events or entertainment but they have amazing deals on products that you can actually purchase!

Apollo Olive Oil - Review and Reader Discount #OliveOil #Foodie



I think I have olive oil in just about every food I make - pasta, rice dishes, chicken dishes, you name it!  And it's always nice to find different places that make olive oil, especially outside of the usual brands I find. So I'm really excited to point out this great olive oil brand for you guys -

Apollo Olive Oil was started back in 1999 and family and friends have made up the "backbone" of Apollo Olive Oil. Their focus is on "working towards excellence, promoting health, and rediscovering the pleasures of good food and dining together." And if you need proof of their quality, they've won many awards over the years!

If you are wanting to do more with olive oil than just sprinkling some on pasta, and you really want to find out more about olive oil in general, Apollo Olive Oil's website has some great frequently asked questions that will help you with figuring out things about olive oil that you may not have known before! Things like "What does Extra Virgin Olive Oil" mean and "what should GOOD olive oil taste like"! Read the answer to those questions here.

I had the chance to try out a couple of their olive oils - the Mistral Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil  and the Sierra Organic Olive Oil. It's hard for me to really discern the taste of olive oil when it's mixed into foods but I can really taste the quality of this olive oil. This is much better than what I usually find in the store. Plus I love the aroma of these olive oils. I've tasted olive oil before that tasted greasy, and this wasn't that experience. This is obviously quality stuff. It is priced a bit high - each bottle costs about $19.95. But you know what? I actually think it's worth it. Plus I LOVE the fact that it is labelled organic, that is greatly appreciated.

To purchase the Sierra Organic olive oil, visit this webpage. Click here to purchase the Mistral Organic  Olive Oil.  Be sure to check out the recipes Apollo Olive Oil has posted to their website!

Best of all, all of my readers can use the code firsttimebuyer and receive $10 off their first order.

I received the above items in exchange for my honest review.
