Back to School with Fruit of the Loom

Yes, we are talking Back to School already. Actually if you haven’t started your back to school shopping yet it’s time to get started! This year my daughter starts kindergarten. Although her supply isn’t that bad, it’s her uniform that will add up. Also, at the beginning of each school year the list just gets longer because she needs new socks, undershirts and other garments.

The next time you want to head down to Reading Terminal Market don’t let the parking deter you from visiting one of my favorite places in the city. There’s no doubt that parking can be tricky and expensive down by Reading Terminal Market since it is right next to the PA Convention Center. Did you know that there is $4 parking available to just the patrons of the Reading Terminal Market?

$4 Parking is available at these 2 Parking garages right next to the market:

After parking be sure to take your ticket with you. You’ll need it to pay in the lobby before leaving and for a vendor to validate your parking.

$4 parking is limited to 2 hours with a minimum purchase of $10, which is plenty of time to get shopping done and grabbing something to eat. After you have made a purchase of $10 of more just ask the cashier to validate your parking slip that you received when you parked.  All vendors should know about $4 parking.

Review: Keurig Brew Over Ice K-Cups


You know the excitement your kid gets when they get that special toy they wanted? Or how excited they get when they really want something. I’ll have to say that there isn’t much that I’ll get excited about or even want. Well except for the Keurig. Oh my god, I LOVE my Keurig! I’m sure you’ve heard this many times before from other Keurig fans but it’s true.

Here’s why I love my Keurig. My Keurig is perfect because I always get a fresh cup of coffee without brewing an entire pot. I’m the only coffee drinker in the house as well so there’s really no point of brewing more than a cup for myself. It’s also easy to use, no filters and coffee grinds to handle and clean up is easy.

Did you know that Keurig brews more than just coffee? There’s Keurig Brew Over Ice beverages that offers you beverages like:

  • Snapple ® brews over ice! The same great flavor that stormed the 90s is available for your Keurig in lemon and peach varieties.
  • Green Mountain Naturals® Lemonade BOI K-Cup Packs®make the brewer a family affair. Made with natural lemon among other simple, natural ingredients this delicious lemonade has no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
  • Nantucket Blend® Brew Over Ice FairTrade certified K-Cup Pack
  • Donut Shop Sweet & Creamy ® Iced Coffee in Vue Packs

Yes, you can brew Iced Tea from your Keurig! Even your kids can enjoy the Keurig with fresh lemonade to cool everyone down during these summer days.

I’m a big fan of iced coffee and I love that I can easily brew myself the perfect iced coffee right in my own kitchen. So the next time you’re out look for the blue “Brew Over Ice” logo and pick up some K-Cups and enjoy some icy cold beverages! If you don’t have a Keurig, they have different models that fit your budget. Maybe it’s time to replace your traditional coffee maker :)
