Video: One Tip to Save Money on Meat

One way I save money on meat is to purchase it in bulk when it’s on sale. Recently, I picked up a purchase of Zaycon chicken from a location near me. Zaycon sells food products by the case and delivers the meat to your area fresh (not frozen) direct from the processing farm in a matter of days, not weeks like most supermarkets and warehouse clubs. I recorded a video to show the process of how Zaycon works and how easy it is to use. Check out the video below.

 

If you can’t see the video, head over to my YouTube Channel here to watch the video. I’m sorry about the background noise in the first part of the video. I had my air conditioner on and forgot to turn it down. 🙁

 

Here is how Zaycon works:

  • First, head over to Zaycon’s site, register, and select the meat you want to purchase.
  • Then choose the location nearest you where the Zaycon Fresh refrigerated truck will be delivering. Zaycon delivers to more than 1,200 locations across the U.S.
  • Purchase the meat online. Look for a promo code to get an even better deal on the meat. The meat comes in a 40 lb. box. Ordering in bulk is a great way to save money on meat. If you feel 40 lbs. of meat is too much for your family, then go in on this deal with a family or friend, and split up the meat between both of you.
  • Drive to the Zaycon location you chose on the specific date and time listed, which is about 2-3 months out, to pick up your meat.

Odysseo by Cavalia: The Most Amazing Show

Odysseo Cavalia

This past week, my husband and I had the chance to go to the Odysseo by Cavalia show in Sandy, Utah. If you live near Salt Lake City, you’ve probably seen the huge white tents by South Towne Mall. The show was INCREDIBLE! If you have ever been to a show in Vegas or New York, this show is just as good. So if you have a chance, I really recommend going.

 

Odysseo Tent

The tickets are expensive, but you won’t have to drive to Vegas to see this once-in-a-lifetime show that is literally within miles of where you live. To save some money, use the code SOCIALUT to get 10% off Gold Level and above tickets. There is also the option to save money on tickets by purchasing family discounts packages or purchasing obstructed view seats (which I hear aren’t bad views). Odyssey by Cavalia has extended their matinee and evening performances through June 6, 2016. Head over to Cavalia’s site for details, including pricing, dates and show times.

Odysseo - Standing by Tent

Odysseo - Standing by VIP Tent

When we first arrived at the tents around 5:30 p.m., we headed to the Rendezvous VIP tent where we received our tickets. While in the tent, we enjoyed a buffet dinner. It was delicious and included little quiches, chicken, steak and salads. They also had popcorn and drinks.

Odysseo - Before Performance

Odysseo - Full House

A few minutes before 7 p.m. we found our seats, which was on row 6. It was a great view of the stage. On a side note, I’ve been told that the obstructed view seats aren’t bad and that you can still see the performance really good. To begin the show, Odysseo started by projecting questions and answers across the curtains so the audience could learn more about the horses and show.

Here are a few fun facts that I learned about the show that night:

A Year Since My Unexpected Delivery + My Experience at LDS Hospital

Matthew Newborn Photos 20

This post is sponsored by Intermountain Healthcare. All opinions are my own.

It’s been nearly a year since my nightmare delivery occurred when I gave birth to my son in the car about one mile from my house. I never thought something like that would happen to me. I assumed that I would make it to the hospital in time, but unfortunately that didn’t happen. I’m really grateful that my husband was calm during the ordeal, and he did a great job delivering our son.

Once the ambulance arrived at the scene and the paramedics took care of a few things, they asked me which hospital I wanted to go to. There was a hospital about five minutes from my house, but I wanted them to take me to LDS Hospital where I had originally planned on having my baby, since that is where my doctor would be. I also had great experiences there with the births of my two other children.
