EL x May Designs + a Coupon Code!

May 24, 2016


EL x May Designs is back! We love our friends over at May Designs, and as of today, May Books are now available in our brand new Simplified Planner covers for 2016-17. These notebooks are customizable (you can add your monogram + choose your inside pages!), and they fit right inside the interior pocket of our daily Simplified Planners. You can purchase them in our new Happy Stripe, Fancy Floral, and Gold Pineapple patterns. Hop on over and take a look


One of our very favorite inside page options for our May Books is the meal planner. We're constantly getting asked how to best plan meals for your family, and May Designs makes it so easy with this. You can plan your meals for the week on one side (there's a section for each day), and on the other side, you can write your master grocery list for the entire week! We love being able to slide our grocery lists right into the pocket of our Simplified Planner and carrying it around with us while we're on the go. On Sundays, we write all the meals down in our planner for the week to keep us on track when we're glancing at our schedule. So helpful! They also have great options for a gratitude journal, wedding diary, coloring books, and so many more. 


We're so excited to partner with May Designs again this year, and they've even offered to give our readers a coupon code on the new collection! Now through June 7th, use the code EL-2016 to receive 25% off your order. Hooray!

Simple tools: Shipt

May 04, 2016

When the twins were born and I became a mama to three little ones, grocery shopping became really difficult. Not only was it crazy to try and push three kids around in a buggy (I don’t even know how?) but imagine me circling the parking lot looking for the buggy that seats two. Seriously. A circus. Plus, even if I went alone on the weekends, I just hated spending our family time running through the grocery store.
Then came Shipt, an on-demand grocery delivery service that puts the entire grocery store into the palm of your hand. Simply download the Shipt app, select your items (dairy, fresh produce, meat, perishables, DIAPERS!, FORMULA! –anything!), choose your delivery window (as soon as one hour later) and you’re done! A trained Shipt Shopper will hand-select your items (and will text you if something is out or if they have any questions) and deliver them straight from the store to your front door. 

Is anyone else thinking... is this real life!? I sure was the first time my delivery came. Shipt contacted me a few months back (I think they saw my bazillions of orders for more diapers and more formula) and asked me about making a short video highlighting our experience with them, and I couldn't have been more excited. When I look back on what got me through my first year as a mom to three, Shipt is way up on that list. When the babies are running low on diapers or milk, or I don't have anything to make for dinner one night, I just hop on the Shipt app, and voilà! A sweet shopper shows up at my door, delivering exactly what I ordered. Their shoppers will even text me while they're shopping to let me know about any out of stock items that I ordered.


Watch this quick video for more details. Including how Shipt came to the rescue when I almost totally forgot our New Year's Eve ice cream sundae tradition!


Shipt delivers in Tampa, as well as more than 24 cities across the country. Hop on over to their website to view more info on their company and a full list of cities they deliver in. Save $10 on your first order with code EMILYLEY10
