Looking for new furniture?  If so, you’ll want to check out Furniture Buy Consignment. They have seven locations (even one on Oklahoma@). I usually shop at their Lewisville location and have found some great deals over the years.

What I LOVE is their pricing structure. Watch out latest ModMom TV video to see what I mean.

ModMomTV_logo_final.-300x259Do you or your children need braces? What really is the difference between clear braces, metal braces and invisalign?n expert, my orthodontist,

In today’s ModMom installment, we ask an expert, my orthodontist, Dr. Habern and get a breakdown on the pros and cons of both. Watch the video below for the inside scoop, plus learn the best time to start orthodontic treatment for kids.

***Plus, we’ve got an exclusive offer just for you! Watch to the very end of the video and learn how you can get $500 off a complete set of braces OR Invisalign at Habern Orthodontics.***

Keep in mind, it’s not uncommon for both parents and kids to get orthodontic treatment at the same time and can be quite convenient booking appointments at the same time!

Things to remember when comparing Invisalign and Clear Braces:

Invisalign is effective for mild to moderate crowding and alignment cases. It is especially good for patients who have had previous orthodontic treatment but have experienced some relapse.

Clear braces are preferred by most orthodontists for moderate to severe cases.

Invisalign is smooth and virtually transparent.

Clear braces blend into the patient’s teeth, but the brackets are a bit bulky and more noticeable. Plus, metal wires are used to make the majority of adjustments and those are not transparent.

Clear Braces

 

Invisalign is usually comfortable and convenient to wear.

Clear braces can irritate soft tissue because they are made of a ceramic material. I went through my fair share of wax in order to put a barrier between my lips/cheeks and the rough edges of the brackets!

Invisalign can be slower to achieve results and is dependent almost entirely on you. If you don’t wear them, they won’t work.

Clear braces work faster at closing gaps and aligning the teeth, plus can correct malocclusion (crooked or crowded teeth) and bad bites.

And remember, whether you choose Invisalign or clear braces, the most important thing is to make sure you select an orthodontist who is properly trained and who can give you a realistic vision of your final results.

ModMomTV_logo_final.-300x259Recently, we launched our brand new YouTube channel, ModMomTV where Natalie and I will are sharing deals and ways to save money, plus highlighting local businesses, entertainment venues or family-friendly events around the Dallas/Ft. Worth area.

This week, we share ways to save at Starbuck’s.

 

As we’re building up this new channel, we’d love your support:

Here are more details about what we discuss in the video!

Save time and money with the app: Just in time for pumpkin spice latte season, Starbucks is letting coffee drinkers order and pay for their coffee with a few taps on their smartphone.  The app works like this: Java junkies pick a Starbucks location on their app, enter their order, pay for it, and then pick up their drink at the bar area at the estimated time. Plus, when you use the Starbucks app, the points add up fast for app users who are frequent Starbucks visitors, scoring free drinks, alongside other perks like free drinks on your birthday.

10 Ways to Save at StarbucksMake it a Misto: Order An Iced Misto Instead of an Iced Latte.  The cafe Misto is made of of half coffee and half milk. It is not only cheaper, but also has less calories! Get a cheaper chai latte by ordering a hot chai tea, then ask them to fill it up with hot milk, which will cost you an extra 60 cents. Not only is it cheaper, but it’s less sweet.

Split with a friend or get the “secret size”:  Want a Frap? A Venti-size one (24 ounces) will set you back $4. A tall (12-ounce) Frappuccino costs $3, so if you split the Venti Frappuccino into two tall cups and share one with a friend, you’ll be saving yourself $1 each. Starbucks also has more sizes than what is on the menu. The secret is they actually have a size called a short that is only 8 oz. The short size appears on the menu as a kid’s size but you can actually order any drink in this size. So next time you don’t need a full 12 oz cup of coffee and want to save a little cash just say, “Give me the secret size.” Either that or you can just ask for the short.

Consider the free shaker flavors: You can shake as much cinnamon, chocolate, nutmeg or vanilla at every counter instead of paying for that extra shot of vanilla.

Ask for light Ice: Ask your barista to go “easy on the ice” and if you regularly drink an iced medium beverage. If you regularly drink a large (or Venti), ask for a Grande and enjoy a medium with almost the same amount of beverage while saving serious cash.

Order Iced Water: Who needs bottled water at Starbucks as the water at Starbucks may even be cleaner. The ice and water used in Starbucks is triple-filtered!

Refills aren’t just for coffee: For only 50 cents you can get a refill all day long on iced coffee, or iced tea. Rewards members get FREE refills!

Buy discount Starbucks cards: As long as the retailer is reputable, used and reloaded Starbucks cards (usually with odd amounts like $34.10 instead of $40) bring huge savings. I personally use Raise.com.

Bring your own mug: The $0.10 discount per drink may not seem like much but if you go to Starbucks all the time, the savings will add up.

Starbucks on Social Media: Following Starbucks on Twitter or liking them on Facebook will put additional discounts on your radar like half-price Frapuccino happy hour notifications, $2 treat receipts, plus more!
