With so many of us traveling this time of year home safety is a big concern for all of us. Even though we live in what I feel is a relatively safe neighborhood, my travel schedule is ever increasing and I wanted to add a measure of reassurance while I am away.

I was a little intimidated with setting up security cameras until I realized this set was completly wireless! Seriously one of the easiest set ups ever! The 4 camera set has an  “ONLY AT BEST BUY”  exclusive pricing – a great value at $499.99. This products enables you to safeguard your home or business with the 4 motion-activated Netgear Arlo Smart Home security cameras.

Here are a few details that made this a perfect product for our family:

· Downloadable apps enable you to view live video from your compatible Android, Apple® iOS, Amazon Kindle, Windows or Mac device

· Completely wire free, for use inside and outside – weatherproof for temperatures ranging from 14° to 122°

· Enables you to capture 720p video footage both during the day and at night , with a 130° field of view

· Motion-activated design automatically records motion once detected, sending e-mail or app notifications

· Comes with 6 magnetic camera mounts and 9 mounting screws, for easy installation on a wall or flat surface

· Works with other Netgear products

Another EXCLUSIVE at Best Buy, I highly recommend is the Netgear® Nighthawk™ DST Router and DST Adapter (with Geek Squad included!!).

We have a ridiculous number of devices connected in our home almost all the time. We had upgraded our speeds but something was still missing. This is a brand new router that was exclusively developed between Netgear, an industry leader in the networking world, and Best Buy, to help provide consumers with an easy, all-in-one solution to support their home’s connected devices.

Did you know there are on average 7 “connected devices” in every US home?! I’m sure our household has at least double that.

As the number of Wi-Fi dependent products increase in a home  from smart phones (often several in a home), to tablets, to laptops, to computers, and Wi-Fi printers, this puts a strain on the home’s network, especially the router. With the interest in online gaming and 4k TVs, connected devices such as smart thermostats, plus the need to stream shows from Netflix or hulu, it places even more demands on the network. Many households may experience slow Wi-Fi, dropped calls, or experience “dead zones” – which could be improved upon with an “AC” router, Wi-Fi extenders and expert help.

· The AC1900 comes with one DST, or “Dead Spot Terminator,” adapter – to eliminate your Wi-Fi dead zones; place it in an area where you get little/no reception, to improve Wi-Fi access. Additional adapters can be purchased for other dead zones.

· This high-performance router was built to support 10+ connected devices – you can also prioritize devices for streaming videos or music, and included advanced features for lag-free gaming

We love to shop and celebrate another year with our favorite people but knowing what will make the perfect birthday gift can be hard! The other factor is finding the time. Shopping online our go to solution for everything. I can save time, money, and I have a lot of options.

The Best Buy Online Gift Ideas Experience ( is hands down one of my favorite places to shop. It  features gift ideas and inspiration to help easily find the perfect birthday gift for anyone. It gives lists of great birthday gift ideas for ‘Him’, ‘Her’, ‘Kids’, and ‘Teens’ helping me quickly zero-in on the right gifts for the right people.

Create a Best Buy Wish List

I especially love the Best Buy Wish List. You can tell your family and friends to create and share a birthday wish list, so that you can get them the gifts that they really want. With our children all having birthdays so close to holidays, its awesome for them to create a list and I can send the list to grandparents, aunts, and uncles who want to know “what the kids are into these days”.  You can also use the Best Buy Wish List to keep track of all the great birthday gift ideas that come along.  Setting up a list is simple and takes no time to get started.

Go here to set up a wish list now & encourage your family members to do the same. When its time to pick out a gift for them you are going to thank me!

Here’s a challenge: Mama’s never pick out gifts for themselves. Tell me, what’s one thing you would put on YOUR OWN Best Buy Wish List? 

The Only thing on my Christmas List is at Best Buy #HintingSeason


Product disclosure

Every year after the Thanksgiving meal, our family makes out their Christmas lists to exchange. It isn’t in materialistic or greedy way. It’s just in a dreamy or hopeful way. Sometimes we put silly things on our lists and we all laugh together. I also always save the lists our kids make and put them in their keepsake books. I think it will be fun for them to look back on the things they were wishing for.

This year I had a lot of trouble coming up with a list. There really was only 1 thing that I could think to put on it. It was THE one thing that I had been wishing for on vacations, during big events etc all year long.  I’d been researching, asking questions from friends, and drooling over the newest  models. My husband has to be tired of my going back and forth over all the brands and options.

Any guesses what the 1 thing on my Christmas list is this year?
