Coffee Lovers...

I love Community Coffee (but truth be told, I am from Louisiana and this is the coffee I grew up having in the house).

Well...Just in time for spring entertaining, Community Coffee Company’s NEW Amber Sunrise Blend is perfect for coffee drinkers who prefer a lighter roast with a smooth finish.

Plus, for every dollar redeemed on specially-marked coupons, Community will donate a matching dollar to land preservation efforts along the gulf coast, one of the largest threatened ecosystems in the world.

Community® Amber Sunrise™ Blend coffee is now available at Albertson’s, Brookshire’s, Brookshire Brothers, Randall’s, Rouse’s, Spring Market, Super 1, Tom Thumb and Winn-Dixie across the Southeastern United States.

Spring Break is Coming! Four Tips for Spring Break Travel for Families  

Four Tips for Spring Break Travel for Families

Spring break is right around the corner and families everywhere are escaping their daily routine to have some family-fun. Packing for an entire family can be challenging, but check out these easy tips to make your trip go much smoother!

1.      Pack Smart and Soon! Spring weather can be tricky, so make sure to pack layers for everyone in the family! Light sweaters and cardigans are the perfect items to pack, as they do not take up a lot of space.

Another pro-tip for packing is do not wait until last minute! Make sure everyone is packed ahead of time to avoid rushing and forgetting important items, like sunscreen, hand sanitizers, etc. Don’t forget to order your TravelOn Hand Soap Sheets ($10.00). These pocket-sized biodegradable sheets are a must-have when traveling with children, and help everyone avoid touching germ-filled surfaces. Easier to carry than a bar of soap, these paper-thin soap sheets dissolve almost instantly in water, giving you a handful of cleansing suds anywhere. TSA compliant and biodegradable, the palm-size container holds 50 sheets.

2.      Boredom Busters- No matter how many activities you have planned, kids get bored at some point. To avoid whining bring coloring books, travel games or download new apps!

3.      Plan ahead-Whether enjoying a staycation or traveling to a new destination, create a rough itinerary including things to do in the area, restaurants to try, etc. A great app for parents is GetBeen! Rather than trusting on an unreliable restaurant reviews in unfamiliar cities, GetBeen allows users to see friend’s restaurant, hotel, and amusement kid-friendly suggestions on all of your travels! By planning ahead, you can stick to your budget and avoid unplanned expenses.

4.      Don’t forget to have fun! Remember, this is your vacation too! Sit back and relax, you deserve it!
