The Benefits of Refinancing

Refinancing your mortgage means you pay off the mortgage you have now and get another one. There are a lot of good reasons for refinancing a home, and getting a loan with a lower interest rate so your monthly payments are also lower is one of the best. 

The Most Common Reasons to Refinance
• Shortening the term of your mortgage. Without changing your monthly payment by much, with a lower interest rate you’ll be able to get a shorter term on your loan, which will save you a lot in interest payments.

• Switching to an adjustable-rate or fixed-rate mortgage. If you have a fixed-rate mortgage, and the interest rates drop, you are paying more for you loan that you need to. If you refinance, you can change to an adjustable-rate and get the lower rate. The opposite is also true. If you have an adjustable-rate loan and the interest rate has gone very high, you can change to a lower fixed-rate loan. A fixed-rate loan at a low interest rate is your best option because you don’t have to worry if the interest rates rise. 

• Accessing equity to get a large amount of cash for big expenses. These expenses may include college tuition, home remodeling, paying off debt or taking a vacation. The money can be spent for anything, but the homeowner should be careful about taking cash for large expenses. Home remodeling is considered good because it actually increases the value of the home. Paying off high-interest debt is a good idea if the homeowner doesn’t immediately incur more debt once they have the available credit. If they simply get into more debt, it could result in bankruptcy.

A Good Financial Move
If you can reduce your mortgage payments and shorten the term of your loan, or build equity more quickly, then refinancing is a good move. You should carefully consider your options and ask yourself how long you plan to continue living in your current home, and calculate how much you’ll save by refinancing. Remember to include any fees charged by your current mortgage lender. If you plan to move in the next few years, refinancing may not be your best option. 

Homeowners should take the time to define their financial situation and objectives. When they have a clear idea of these, they can look into refinancing as a useful tool for improving their finances.

Have a Leak Free Holiday with Luvs

There is nothing worse then being super busy and having to stop to deal with a diaper mess. It's icky, inconvenient, and time consuming. Yesterday, for example, we were headed to church. I had all the kids ready to go and just needed to do some finishing touches on my hair while they put their coats on and all of a sudden D runs up to me and says, "Mom, come quick! There is poop EVERYWHERE!" and sure enough, F had a major blow out going on. It as down her leg, all over her dress, on the bed where she had been sitting, and on the floor (EWWW!). I thought about taking a picture for ya'll but decided I'd spare you the image. Needless to say, it took a good 20 minutes to get everything cleaned up, F showered and in a clean dress, and out the door and we were late to church.

Please tell me I'm not the only mom to have days like this? With three kids in diapers I'm sure I have them more then most but it happens to everyone. That's why this year I am heading into the holidays with Luvs Leak Protection on my kids butts. Luvs is now offering Luvs with NightLock  with it's highest absorbency ever!

Today I am excited to be able to help other families experience a Luvs Leak Free Holiday.

The first way we can help is simply by viewing this video. For every view this video receives now through Christmas Luvs will be donating one diaper to a child in need through the Children's Miracle Network.

The second way is that Luvs is going to be giving one Kerrific reader a prize pack to get them all set up for the holidays. To enter, simply use the form below. Good luck!

Saving With Capital One 360 for the Holidays

With the holiday season fast approaching there is much to think about. As parents we must decide what to buy, where to buy, when to buy, and how much we can spend. It can be very easy to let our finances get away from us as we strive to give the very best to our children. For many of us it takes a lot of self-control and careful consideration to make sure that our finances make it through the holidays intact.

This year, I am excited to announce that Capital One 360 is here to help you meet your holiday financial commitments with financial peace of mind. There are deals on almost every Capital One product including:
  • ShareBuilder – up to $1250 bonus*
  • Home Loans - $1250 off closing costs*
  • 360 Checking - $100 bonus*
  • 360 Savings - $100 bonus*
  • Refer a Friend - $40 bonus per successful referral*
*visit Capital One 360’s Black Friday Sale page for all the details

At our house, starting our holiday season with smart financial decisions is only the first half of the battle. There are so many things that we do all year long to help our family make it through the holidays successfully. The biggest and probably the easiest of the things we do to save is simply to pay our bills on time.

By making sure we pay our bills on time, we save hundreds in late fees. Having previously seen the results of having multiple late fees I can honestly say that making the change to pay things on time has been one of the biggest blessings to our family. Instead of wondering which bills we will pay this month we pay them first and worry about what extras we will get after that is done.

 It’s wonderful to know that the gift giving we do during the holidays is done responsibly thanks to smart money decisions during the year and smart shopping during the holiday season. What are your favorite, or most successful, financial tips for the holidays? I’d love to hear about how you make things work during this challenging time of year!

Holiday Gifts for Hubby with Cogito Watch

This is a sponsored program with Mums the Word Blogger Network and Cogito. All opinions are my own.

It's hard to admit but one of the hardest people that I buy for each Christmas is my husband. Part of this is because he has a bad habit of going out and buying things he wants or needs because he can. (Yes, if you do this, it's frustrating for the rest of us). Thanks to this habit I have to be extra creative when I go shopping and think of things he doesn't yet know he needs.

This year, I am excited that both of us will be getting COGITO watches. The COGITO Classic is a stylish connected watch from ConnecteDevice. This amazing tool brings together the power of a connected watch with the sophistication of a precision-crafted timepiece, merging classic analog movement with a lucid digital display. With the help of your new watch you’ll know what’s happening on your phone even when it’s tucked away!

How does it work? With the use of the Free ConnectedWatch App, you'll be able these essential notifications at a glance:

  • Incoming and missed call alerts (See Caller ID or phone number on the digital display), 
  • Email alerts, 
  • 3rd Party messenger app alerts (Viber, WhatsApp, Skype, etc.)
  • Calendar Reminders 
  • Device Low Battery Alerts. 
  • You can also use COGITO as a remote control to skip, pause and play music, and trigger your device camera at the push of a button. 

So what makes COGITO extra special? You also don’t have to charge your watch battery every day! The COGITO comes with a button-cell battery that lasts for up to a year! And as a bonus for my hard working husband it has up to 10ATM water resistance! WAHOO!

So how are we getting two of these amazing watches? Now through November 30, 2014 you can get $50 off your COGITO watch with code BLOG50. Make sure you add this deal to your list for Friday and then let me know how much you love your new toy tool.

Compatible with iPhone 4S up, iPad 3rd & 4th Generation, iPad Mini Running iOS 8 
and Android 4.3 upwards on Samsung S3, S4, S4 Mini S4 Active, Note 2 & 3 & HTC One

AgentAce For Your Dream Home + Crate & Barrel Giveaway!

Agent Ace is the new way to find the best real estate agent. When you've thought about buying a home, how did you figure out who would help you with that? Did you find someone who you felt you could trust to get you what you wanted from it, whether that was a good price on a new home or the best sale of your old one? A lot of homeowners and potential buyers will just pick a random agent from a list online without a lot of background on what they're best at. It's like throwing a dart at the Yellowpages. With just a little information from you, Agent Ace can match you with the best agent to sell your home or buy a new one.

They're not a service who bases their list on whoever pays the most in your area either, so there's no worry about what goes on behind the scenes. For those of us in the market, Agent Ace a completely free service.

Then they promise to recommend the single best agent for your needs — based on facts.

Agent Ace is free, easy to use, and there’s no obligation to use any of the agents they recommend. You're not locked into anything if you don't find someone you think fits or if maybe you decide you're not ready yet. They make up to 3 agent recommendations for buying and 3 for selling so you can choose the best fit for your needs and your style. Once they identify your best agent, the experienced Agent Specialists will screen them and confirm that they can fully commit to you. They do the initial contact and the sometimes awkward "Hey, can you take a new client right now?" questions for you. Once they’re sure it's a great fit, your recommended agent will give you a call within 24 hours (but usually sooner). It’s as easy as ordering take-out.

It's Cold! + Dreft + Giveaway

So over the last few days we have had an interesting adventure. One of my children - who shall remain nameless for his own safety - decided that instead of cleaning up the toy room he was going to go on an adventure into the utility room that is right next door. He was in trouble and he knew it but the big problem came the next morning. I woke up to get the kids ready for school and the house was FREEZING! I mean, holy cow! So I put on a sweatshirt and ran to the thermostat and it said 55. No wonder I was cold. So, of course I start troubleshooting and can't figure out why the heat won't turn on. Without any luck I called hubby who told me where the switches were downstairs to check. Yep, someone had turned off the furnace when he was exploring. *sigh*

This brought a new realization to me that it is actually cold! I'm totally not ready for that to happen, although it always happens this time of year in Idaho. This week I've had to pull out winter coats, put summer shorts away, and make sure the kids are all stocked up on socks and sweaters. Needless to say that means I have been doing lots of extra laundry. Thankfully, I have Dreft to help me out this year as I get my kids clothes ready to bundle in.

As you are getting ready to bundle up for winter finding a detergent that is soft on the skin and hypoallergenic is important for many families. Dreft is a great choice for anyone who needs clean, soft, and allergy friendly any time of year but especially during the cold months. Now is a great time to try out, or stock up, on Dreft using the $2 coupon from

I'm also excited to announce that Dreft is sponsoring a Twitter party Thursday November 6th from 9-10pm EST to discuss ways to keep baby warm and comfortable this winter. Top pediatrician Dr. Dyan Hes will be there to talk with us and there will be some amazing prizes including:

How a Home Security Monitoring Company Can Protect Your Property

As a homeowner, you understandably want to take every step possible to protect your home from negative events. Everything from a fire to vandalism or theft can impact your house as well as the belongings and even your loved ones inside. While there are numerous steps that you can take to minimize the risks that you may face as a homeowner, one of the best options is to use a home security monitoring service. When you select the right service to use, you can rest assured that a professional team will be keeping a watchful eye over your home at all times. 

Contacting You at the First Sign of Trouble
At the first sign of trouble, a security monitoring company representative will contact you directly at the phone numbers you provided. There may be instances when you are not home, and your home has been affected in some way. A reliable monitoring company will immediately contact you or others on your contact list to inform you of a potential issue with your property. In some cases, there are false alarms, and you or others on your contact list may be able to tell the monitoring company what the trouble is. In other cases, a true emergency situation has come up, and you may tell the monitoring company to send authorities to your property for assistance. 

Contacting Authorities Immediately for Assistance
In the event that your home has been broken into, you should expect to receive a phone call from your monitoring company within a matter of seconds. This is also the case in the event of a fire or another type of mishap. If the monitoring company is not able to reach you or if you request further assistance with the problem, the monitoring company can dispatch the proper authorities to the home immediately. Essentially, this means that problems related to a fire, a break in or other issues could result in you receiving a response from emergency service professionals within a matter of minutes. 

While there are many steps that you can and should take in order to secure your home properly and to safeguard your possessions and family members from harm, investing in a security system that is properly monitored by the right company is a key step to take. This simple step can safeguard your property from a wide range of events, and you can begin learning more about the monitoring services available today. 

Top Food for Top Dogs

If you've read our about us page than you know that at our house we have lots of four legged friends. In fact, we consider our pets to be a very important part of our family and as such we like to treat them to the very best we can offer.

One way we make sure that our pets are happy and healthy is by making sure they get natural dog food. It's hard to find allergy-friendly dog food that is made in the USA but it is out there and today I am pleased to share Only Natural Pet's new food with you.

What makes Only Natural Pet's food different?

  • Packed with protein, amino acids and essential fatty acids, the PowerFood™ also contains low-glycemic carbohydrates like garbanzos and lentils (which are sourced from farms in Minnesota and Wisconsin and offer healthy, long lasting energy without spiking blood sugar) and fruits and vegetables that offer whole food sources of important vitamins and minerals. 
  • Each piece of kibble is infused with our proprietary PowerBoost™, a raw, freeze-dried blend of superfoods like green lipped mussels, sea cucumbers, probiotics and pumpkin. 
  • Corn, wheat, oat and soy free and made with gluten-free ingredients. 
  • Our Only Natural Pet PowerFood™ was formulated by a holistic vet & Made in the USA 
  • The Barrett Ag Services plant sits on 400 acres of farm land (chickpea, yellow pea & corn crops) with strict testing & quality measures to ensure safety throughout the process

Our dogs have been on this new formula for about a week and so far it has been amazing! I love that the ingredients are things that I would feed my children. It's also been nice that my picky dogs *Buster* haven't complained about the switch and seem happier than ever!

You can purchase Only Natural Pet food at their website and learn more about the brand on the Facebook page. And don't forget to check out their selection of cat products for your feline friends as well!

Pet Vacations

Instead of sending your pets to a kennel when you go on vacation, consider sending them to a pet inn. This is a place where your pets are treated like they are on vacation as well. There are several amenities offered at inns for pets that will make them comfortable while they are away from their owners, making you feel comfortable as well. 

Generators are usually available at pet inns so that the animals are cared for if the electricity were to go out. Meals are given at least twice a day, and there are treats offered as well. A continuous water supply is usually given so that pets always have access to something to drink. Many facilities have beds for the pets, and there is time for the animals to play with others that are of the same size. Floors are made so that the animals don't slide. Doors and fencing make it almost impossible for the animals to escape, keeping them safely inside the area. There are cat condos that the cats can scratch on and toys for dogs to play with while they are in their private space. Grooming services are offered, and most locations offer a health guarantee. Learn about the other amenities offered before making a decision for your pet to stay in a resort or inn.

A Bedtime Routine For Little Ones

Tracking PixelSo, if you haven't noticed, this fall has been a little bit crazy at the Kerr house. It's been a very big adventure for mom to figure out how to deal with having more kids in school, two different schools, plus homework and fewer kids taking naps. I am really missing the naps! We have had to adjust our schedule in lots of different ways but the most noticeable has been at bedtime where we have been able to find some new tricks and some new products to help us succeed.

For a long time our bedtime schedule was loose and we regularly changed it depending on what we had going that particular day. Now that we have to be up earlier to get kids to school mom has to put her foot down regularly to get kids in bed so that I can tolerate them in the morning. 

Besides going to bed early, the thing we have found most helpful to making it through our very long days is sleeping through the night. Our biggest challenge has been the kids waking up to wet sheets due to bed wetting. Trust me when I say that I am not a fan of being woken up in the middle of the night by a wet child to have to climb to the top bunk of the bunk beds to change the sheets while trying to keep the other children in the bed sleeping (our boys have an awesome triple bunk). I much prefer it when everyone sleeps through the night. 

That is why I was excited to try the new GoodNites*TRU-FIT* underwear with my big boys. I know that bed wetting is something that many children deal with (one study shows 1 in 6) and thus, we are trying to adapt our routine so it's not as big of a challenge and GoodNites® is helping.

There are so many things that GoodNites*TRU-FIT* have helped us to accomplish but here are a few of the most important:
  1. They look and feel like normal underwear so my kids don't notice who's wearing them and who isn't.
  2. They allow my children to sleep through the night by keeping the wetness contained.
  3. They don't fill up the trash cans as quickly as other underwear we have tried.
  4. I don't have a HUGE mess when one of them accidentally gets put in the laundry and ends up in the washer and/or dryer.
  5. I can get them at Target - my favorite place to shop!
If you are interested in learning more about GoodNites*TRU-FIT* underwear than you can visit their website and make sure to join us for a twitter party taking place Wednesday, November 19 from 8:00 – 9:00AM PST / 11:00 AM – 12:00PM EST to learn even more about the amazing features offered and how they can benefit your family (just follow #TRUFITTARGET). If you're anxious to try out GoodNites*TRU-FIT* before the party then head on down to the nearest Target store and look for the bags with the $2 coupon attached today!

What Mom Really Wants For Christmas

You know that moment when your husband asks you what you want for Christmas (or your birthday or your anniversary)? Do you know how many times I've told E that all I really want is an uninterrupted nap? Ya, that doesn't fly very well. He wants to know what I would like that comes in a box. So this year, I've decided that what I really want is a camera, something besides my phone to take photos with. I want to be able to make memories with my family and actually remember them. In other words, I need more shots like these.

That means I've been checking out Best Buy to see what they have to offer. There are three options that I think would be great and last our family for many years.

  • GoPro HERO4 Black: the most advanced GoPro ever, featuring improved image quality and a 2x more powerful processor with 2x faster video frame rates1, HERO4 Black takes award‐winning GoPro performance to a whole new level.
  • GoPro HERO4 Silver: the first-ever GoPro to feature a built-in touch display.
