I’ve published my first eBook!

book cover compressed

I am excited to share that last week I accomplished something I’ve been wanting to do for a while… publish an eBook!

One of the most popular posts on the blog is my post on tips and tricks for the Disney Dining Plan. This post has had over 10,000 page views in the last few months, and that is a lot for a tiny baby blog like this! I’ve learned that lots of folks want to learn how to make the most of a Dining Plan at Walt Disney World.

So I decided to put all of my knowledge and insight about the Disney Dining Plans into a short eBook and publish it on Amazon. It was actually a pretty interesting and fun process!

The Ultimate Guide to the Disney Dining Plans is currently only on Amazon, though you can read it on any device – smartphone, tablet, or computer – with the free Kindle app.

In a nutshell, the book can help you:

• Understand how the Disney World Dining Plans work
• Decide if a Dining Plan is right for you
• Learn the ins and outs of the plans
• Determine if the “Free Dining” promotion is the best deal for you
• Get the most bang for your buck with a Dining Plan

How to get FREE JetBlue Mosaic Status if you have a Southwest Companion Pass

2016-05-26 06_08_10-(131 unread) - leahanne33 - Yahoo Mail

My daughter and I are visiting family next week and we are flying on JetBlue. I remembered reading somewhere that JetBlue will grant you their elite “Mosaic” status if you have a Southwest Companion Pass, which I do (read about how I earned it here). Mosaic status gets you two free checked bags, a free adult beverage in-flight, and an expedited security line, among other perks, so I was definitely going to look into how to get all of that for free!

I headed over to Million Mile Secrets, my favorite frugal travel blog, and easily found their article on how to qualify for JetBlue Elite Mosaic Status if you have a Southwest Companion Pass.

All I had to do was fill out the form on this Mosaic status match page and upload a scan of my physical Southwest Companion Pass. The site said it could take up to two weeks to get an email confirming that I’d earned Mosaic status, but I got a confirmation in my inbox in just a few hours!

Here are all of the perks I’ll get through the end of this year with my free Mosaic status:

You can also get Mosaic status matched using elite status from other airlines, such as Delta Gold, American Airlines Platinum, etc.

Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort Review: Refurbished Rooms, an Incredible Pool, and Some Drawbacks

IMG_1113

Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort sometimes gets a bad rap for being the oldest Moderate resort or for being huge/spread out. While these two facts are true, I think Caribbean Beach has a lot of strengths, including an incredible pool complex and recently refurbished rooms. In this post I’ll share my recent experience staying at Caribbean Beach as well as the pros and cons of the resort.

It took me MANY visits to Walt Disney World until I stayed at Caribbean Beach, and here’s why: up until this year, it was the only Moderate resort that still sported double beds as opposed to queen beds. Though I love my husband dearly, sharing a double bed with him is pretty rough (sorry honey), so we usually stay at resorts with either a queen or king bed.

My sister and I decided to meet up at Disney World this spring with our kiddos in tow, and I suggested staying at Caribbean Beach. We weren’t going to be visiting the theme parks (crazy, right?) so we wanted a resort with a great pool and lots to do. I figured it was time to give Caribbean Beach a try since it got up-fitted with queen beds last year and sported a fairly new feature pool.

IMG_1123

The pirate-themed feature pool

Instead of making you wait until the end of this (kinda long) review for the pros and cons of the resort, I’ll share them now and explain as I go along.

Caribbean Beach Strengths:

  • Newly refurbished rooms (including some that sleep five)
  • Incredible pool complex
  • Gorgeous grounds with lots to do
  • Great cast members
  • One of last resorts to fill up and is always included in discounts

Caribbean Beach Drawbacks:

  • Lower quality of food than other Disney resorts (some was downright icky)
  • Long bus rides to/from the theme parks
  • Long walks to food/pool from many rooms at the resort
  • Not very “Disney” (which could be a pro or con depending on how much you love the Mouse)

Now I’ll share details on every aspect of the resort and explain my list of strengths and drawbacks as I go. Let’s start with the rooms!

Resort Rooms

IMG_1101

As I already mentioned, Caribbean Beach went through a major room refurbishment last year. All rooms (with the exception of the Pirate-themed rooms – more on those soon) received queen beds and all new furniture, fixtures, and soft goods. In fact, I think the rooms are barely recognizable after the remodel – in a good way.

IMG_1144

Entrance to our room in the Martinique village

The buildings at Caribbean Beach are only two stories tall but they do not have elevators. This is important to note if you are traveling with strollers, wheelchairs or scooters. If you are, make sure you confirm that you have been assigned a ground floor room at check-in. You access the rooms via outdoor walkways, similar to all of the other Moderate resorts.

IMG_1099

I really enjoyed everything about the new rooms. The decor was modern and understated but still had a Caribbean vibe. The queen beds were comfortable and the room seemed larger than most Disney rooms to me, likely due to the fact that the resort was built in 1988. We were able to fit two strollers plus all of our stuff in the room and still had room to move around.

IMG_1106

IMG_1105

Our room had a small table with two chairs, a storage unit with drawers, a small coffee maker, a mini-fridge, and a bench located to the right of the storage unit. I was actually expecting the room to have a fold-out Murphy bed in the storage unit similar to the one I read about in this review at EasyWDW. But it turns out that every room didn’t get a fold-out bed to sleep a fifth person, so if this is important for your party, be sure to request one!

IMG_1097

My favorite feature of the room was the heavy rolling wooden doors that separate the bathroom area from the main room. My nephew is one year old and our plan was to put his Pack ‘n Play in the bathroom area and close it off from the main area with the doors during nap time and at night. Unlike many aspects of most vacations, this actually worked like a charm! He never woke up from noise from the main room and the Pack ‘n Play fit perfectly under the shelving once we moved the ironing board.

IMG_1095

Where we set up the Pack ‘n Play in the bathroom area

The heavy doors essentially made a second room for him to sleep in, which was great considering there was also a three-year-old in the room!

IMG_1093 IMG_1089

The bathroom area contained two sinks and a separate (and really tiny) room with a toilet and shower. My only complaint about the room was how small the sink/shower area was. Is was hard to maneuver in that space, especially when I was giving both kids a bath.

Wait, I lied, I have one more complaint. I could not for the life of me find a single hidden Mickey in this room! Maybe I just didn’t find them, but I was disappointed that Mickey didn’t make it into the refurbished rooms. :( Please leave a comment if you have found one!

Now about those Pirate rooms… The Trinidad South area of the resort contains rooms that are heavily themed to the Pirates of the Caribbean. These rooms have two double beds and cost around $55 more per night than a standard room. Be warned that they are some of the furthest rooms from the dining and main pool, which is a deterrent for some folks. But if you have a pirate-crazed little one, these rooms might be worth the extra walking and cost.

How to start your own blog for $2.95 per month…

2016-05-20 06_09_53-The Best Web Hosting _ Fast Professional Website Hosting Services - Bluehost

My blog has brought me so much enjoyment and helped me grow as a person, way more than I ever thought it would when I started out. If you have any interest in getting started with your own blog, now is a great time to jump in!

I use WordPress to create my blog,  which is the most common blogging platform. It is software that is totally free to use. However, you do need a service to host your blog, and I have always used Bluehost. I’ve only had positive experiences with their service and it is very affordable. Through the end of May, you can get hosting for as low as $2.95 per month, depending on the length of plan you choose.

2016-05-20 05_54_24-Create Your Account - Bluehost

The only other thing you need to get started blogging is to register a domain name (e.g. mine is www.thefrugalsouth.com). You also get free domain registration with any of these plans, so there aren’t any hidden fees.

If you have any interest in starting a blog as a hobby or business, I strongly suggest signing up for the 36 month plan at $2.95/month. I WISH I had done this starting out, since I would still be riding that low rate to this day! But instead I chose the 12 month plan and I have paid a higher rate the renew my plan this year. :(

If you have any questions about starting a blog, please leave them in the comments field below!

Why I’m not buying any new clothes in 2016…

2016-05-10 14_45_00-About Katy

One of my favorite bloggers is Katy Wolk-Stanley, aka The Non-Consumer Advocate. Her blog challenges me to take a close look at my actions as a consumer, and has helped me make choices that are more in line with my values. Since 2007, Katy has been part of “The Compact”, a movement in which people commit to buying nothing new.

I know what you are thinking… “Wait, are you telling me that this lady hasn’t bought anything new in the past 9 years!?” Well, not exactly, but pretty darn close. Katy makes exceptions for undergarments, socks, food, and the occasional gift for another.  She has been able to find everything else she needs secondhand. She consciously chooses to buy less and buy secondhand for several reasons, as far as I can tell: 1) to reduce her environmental impact, 2) to be able to only work part time as a labor and delivery nurse, and 3) to save as much money as possible. She and her husband are currently saving to fund their two sons’ college education without any loans or debt.

While I completely admire Katy’s dedication and resolve, I’m not ready to commit to not buying anything new just yet. I did find a like-new coffee maker at Goodwill this week after ours died.  But if I couldn’t find one there I was ready to pull the trigger on a new one at Kohl’s. 😉

I do think I am ready to take one small step towards buying nothing new, however. And I’m going to commit to it publicly here on the blog. One of the things I love most about blogging is that I am accountable to an amazing group of people… you, my readers! But that also makes me think really hard before I commit to something and share it here!

2016-05-10 15_28_23-Leah Crocker Althiser (@thefrugalsouth) • Instagram photos and videos

Rocking my secondhand fleece from Yerdle

So I’ve decided that I’m not buying any new clothes, shoes, or accessories in 2016. Like Katy, I am making an exception for underwear and bras, and my motivation is much the same. I’ve committed to being more intentional this year with everything from my words to our finances, and buying only secondhand helps me live more aligned with my values.

I realize it’s already May and kind of an unusual time to be making New Year’s resolutions! But I have already successfully gone without buying anything new clothing-wise so far in 2016, so I figure I would just take the plunge and commit to the rest of the year.

IMG_0922

One of my favorite gently-used shirts

It has actually been really easy for most part. I have found some incredible online secondhand shops that make it SO easy to find anything I might need without leaving my house. You’ve probably seen me share about them on the blog before, but here’s a quick recap:

xlm7eq

Schoola is quickly becoming my favorite source for secondhand clothing. They have a huge selection, low prices, and often have free shipping offers. Here is a post with an honest review of one of my orders. If you are new to Schoola you’ll get a free$10 credit using this link. I got most of our three-year-old’s summer wardrobe during a sale on Schoola this past winter!

2015-09-16-14_59_07-Swap.com-Buy-and-sell-pre-owned-kids-and-womens-items

Not only do I buy some of our clothing through Swap.com, I sell our stuff there, too! They have a HUGE inventory (currently 178,000 girls items alone), great quality and competitive prices. You can read my tips and review of Swap.com here.

2015-09-16 15_01_23-thredUP - The Largest Online Consignment & Thrift Store

If you like brands such as Banana Republic, J. Crew, and Anthropologie, then thredUP might be right up your alley. They are an excellent source for high-end clothing, and you’ll get a free $10 credit if you are new to their site if you click through this link.

yerdle

And my last recommendation is to check out Yerdle for secondhand clothes. Yerdle is a place to share useful items that you no longer need with others, while getting items you DO need in return.I just scored a pair of shoes to wear to a friend’s wedding for $7 shipped. If you are new to Yerdle click any link on this page for free $35 Yerdlebucks to get you started!

So as you can see, I’m not hurting for options in the secondhand clothing department. I don’t actually buy very much clothing for myself, but I do have to clothe a little one who seems to grow out of her clothes faster than she can wear them. I hope my pledge to not buy any new clothing in 2016 has at least sparked your interest in buying clothing secondhand. Please leave a comment  below and tell me what you think!

Our theme park-free visit to Disney World

IMG_1113

Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort

I recently returned from an amazing Disney vacation with my sister and our kiddos. We shared a room at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort (which was interesting with a one- and three-year-old!) and had a trip jam-packed full of fun and laughter. And we never set foot in a theme park!

When I tell people that I took a trip to Walt Disney World and didn’t visit the theme parks, I can tell some of them are thinking I’m a bit weird. Well, I am… but there is more to our trip than that. 😉

IMG_2977

I always feel like there is SO much to do at Disney’s resorts and that I never get time to fully enjoy them because we are hurrying off to the parks. Since it was just my sister, myself, and the littles on this trip (poor hubbies had to stay home and work), we decided to save some money and opt out of the theme parks.

IMG_1123

The incredible pool at Caribbean Beach Resort

Instead, we spent time at the pool, beach, playground, enjoyed some fun Character meals, and visited other resorts. We had incredible weather and felt like we had PLENTY to do without going to the parks. We even ran out of time to rent a surrey bike for a ride around the resort!

I’ll be sharing in-depth reviews of our resort and dining experiences here on the blog in the coming months. But here is a little preview of what’s to come!

IMG_2948

The cousins loved meeting some characters during our trip, especially Minnie and the gang at Cape May Cafe.

We had a great time riding the monorail around the Seven Seas Lagoon on our way to dinner at the Grand Floridian.

IMG_2886We took a taxi over to Art of Animation resort to eat at the Landscape of Flavors (read my earlier dining review here) and for some photo ops with the Cars. Gotta love Mater!

IMG_1059

IMG_2766

RC and I went down to Florida one day ahead of my sister and stayed one night at Disney All-Star Movies resort. I’ve never stayed at any of the All-Star resorts before and it actually exceeded my expectations.

IMG_2992

IMG_2995

Overall we had a fantastic trip to our “happy place” and made loads of memories with our still-little ones. This was the first time I had been at Disney World with my sister since we were kids and I feel so tremendously lucky that we shared this time together. How cool is my sister that she will go to Disney World with me and not have to visit the parks!

Watch for more Disney posts coming soon, including how I pulled off taking this trip for free…
