hey guys it's Melanie and back with another Dollywood video and this one is how to save money at Dollywood or buy your tickets and while you're there if you're new here we'd love to travel and we'd love to do a lot of tips videos about our travels and do a lot of DIYs too so please stay subscribe especially if you like to go to the Pigeon Forge Gatlinburg area because I do a lot of videos on the video down below like just regular tips for Dollywood our like free things to do in Pigeon Forge our evolve things like that but this one is just how we saved money at Pigeon Forge so our octave or jet at Dollywood we went this year inlet last year at their favorite place to go if you think I missed any tips for saving money please let me know in the comments as you have questioned the for sluttiness promise and that is it alright here's the video tip one is to take a trolley ride instead of paying for better parking so trust me a half discount ticket tix tips coming but I wanted to show you guys these first so park anywhere you want to you do not have to walk there's a trolley that comes and picks you up the kids love this they think it's a ride so we just take the trolley the next tip is to buy that reusable cup not all amusement parks offer them but Dollywood does so you pay for the cup and then refills I believe are a dollar for a pop refill all day long so and then you just get a cup to take home and we used it every single time in one in a pod when we ate and it just it worked out really well and we have a souvenir we did this both years speaking of drinks water is free I know a lot of music parks will do free water but they do like the whole kitten caboodle like you get a straw a lid these smaller cups are the the water cups and we got one pop Cup to share and we drink a whole lot of water because I mean it was really hot even in April so anyway free water cups all you do is ask one of my favorite tips is to go mining for gems we did not do that last year we actually didn't do that till this year I love it you pay X amount depending on the bag you're guaranteed some nice gems and you get to you know put the shifter sifter in the water and get all the dirt out and take out your gems and then you get to keep the gems so the price you pay for the gems ended up being cheaper than some of the gems I have purchased at children's museums and then you get the experience to go along with it so I totally think it's worth it so you get a souvenir and an experience for like you know a decent price so why not right the next tip is to play a carnival game $5.00 always wins in a souvenir kind of the same concept as the last tip I don't really have a lot of videos just pictures but you pay $5 my son won two things that they're both pretty sisters you had to have them the whole entire day but anyway $5 it doesn't necessarily say Dollywood on it but it is a you know some sort of souvenir and you got to play a carnival game with it for five bucks so I think it's worth it the next tip is to bring those necessities if you think that you won't need them but you will need them trust me I have had to pay for ponchos at Disney and they were not cheap I've had to pay for sunscreen at the zoo it was not cheap to make sure you stick that in your bag you're not allowed to bring food in with you you are allowed to bring my formula and stuff but bringing extra socks because your feet somehow get wet and bring you know all of the day essentials that you might need because if not you're going to end up purchasing them at a gift shop I've unfortunately had to do this multiple times but you guys know just make a list because even if you think you won't forget something you probably will if you're anything like me the next tip is to consider getting complicates the rest of the tips I promise are about saving money on admission I have quite a few tips for you on that but anyway the one day pass for one adult is $68 but if you get 3-day to Park tickets it's only 99 dollars so that's what 31 dollars more that's like half the price of you know a regular ticket and you get to go to both parks we've been to the water park and that is one of our like top 3 favorite water parks ever I totally recommend it but anyway you could spend an extra $30 per person and go you know like it's $100 per person to go for 3 days instead of paying what $68 almost 70 per person to go for one day so I totally recommend that if you're going to be in town for a few days another option is to arrive after 3 p.m. on day one and then you get free admission on day two which is a really awesome ideal if you're going to be there for like just a weekend you can totally just you know do something the first part of the day or drive in the first part of the day I have a whole video on like free things you could do in Pigeon Forge and Sevierville I'll link that below you could do whatever you want go you know find some food whatever get there at 3:00 p.m. and then go the whole next day I think that's pretty much the best deal if you're only planning on being there for a small amount of time and you want to spend the least amount of money on tickets another option is to consider getting a season pass they talk about this all the time while you're in line for rides if you were to go two separate times and pay full price for your tickets that would actually cost you more than buying a season pass so if you're going to go you know like if you're we are in Cincinnati so we are like four hours away we consider getting a season pass so we can go like two or three times and next year I don't know it's an option for you the next option is to ask for gift certificates some friends of ours whenever they went to Disney the Christmas before they actually said hey if we're exchanging Christmas presents we would love like Disney gift cards I thought that was genius so if you're planning a family vacation it can't hurt to say hey if we're exchanging presents or whatever you know I want Dollywood certificates or maybe if your kids are having a birthday or something like that maybe suggest to like their grandparents or friends or whatever maybe they would like like a ten dollar gift certificate to buy something it's all they would that just kind of you know helps where you don't have to spend as much money there so it's just an option they do have gift certificates the last idea is to join a local museum for discounted admission so we did not know that our CR annual passes to our local aquarium actually gave us a 50% discount on tickets at Dollywood how awesome is that so we actually got our tickets to our local aquarium on Groupon so we saved money there and we got a whole year and then certain other like places you get discounts for you can do this with like children's museums things like that it just depends on if they're connected or anything so just check into that I'm not really sure who all there Dollywood may be connected with may be anywhere local or anything like that but yeah that was super exciting for us because it just happened to be a perk and so you know why not take advantage of it guys so that is it if you have these tips to add please let me know if you have questions let me know you guys know the drill but that isn't I appreciate you guys please stay please subscribe I appreciate you guys watching my videos all right bye Olivia's what bye bye you

My Kid’s Channel-

hey guys oh hey guys it's Melanie and Dakota and today we are part in the tamper to show you our tips on how we save whenever we buy diapers and pulling wipes out is not one of them guys in here you may not know that I love a good diaper deal but I mean this every parent but you may also may not know that I'm kind of an extreme couponer I used to be totally into couponing and now like I just I don't have the time to always mess with the coupons and stuff like that and I've kind of just found some other ways to save the money I still print a coupon don't get me wrong but there are ways to save even if you're not printed coupons so I wanted to share those with you today I'm pretty positive that that's probably one of the most like the number one question I get on my couponing videos is how to save money on diapers so I just I wanted to make a video about that so whenever I partnered with pampers because this video was sponsored by Janice butters I'm so excited about that you guys you have no idea but anyway whenever it partners with pampers I thought that was kind of perfect opportunity because they have a new app for their rewards program which is something I have talked about in the past but it's like revamped and it just it's easier to get the points so I just wanted to make a list of my top six tips for saving on diapers which includes their new awesome app PS look how many I let her just pull the stem out for the business Brandi oh by the way for the intro when she got overly excited and she just like we planted a plastic bags no worries mustn't waste the way I want I do want to say that this is in partnership with Pampers I'm super excited for pampers to sponsor one of my videos I am so grateful to you guys for even like thinking I am or the emphasis I'm so excited but anyway they came out with a new app for their rewards program the number one of the six tips is actually going to be about their new rewards program so if you haven't seen it like my older videos I think they talked about their rewards program back whenever I was doing videos right before my daughter was born who is my youngest and she's 2 now and I was like you know getting the pampers from Target different deals like that anyway they come with points like you can collect the point so whenever you buy pampers you get points if you're new so like buying pampers if you're not new to it they have a new app coming out well it just came out in the links below but anyway you get points for downloading the app so even if you don't know if you're actually going to use the app at least download it to get the point and see if you like it but I think you're going to love it and here is like why I know this sounds like kind of ridiculous my favorite part of the app is the fact that now I don't have to sit down and like read out all of the letters I just have to like scan it like take a picture of it and that is it which is super simple I've been waiting for this for a while I've been hoping they would finally come out with something like this and they finally did it's super easy but if you follow the link and then you download the app you get a hundred points just for downloading the app and then after you scan in your first pack of diapers you get an extra 50 points that's an extra 150 points so it's really super easy way to get points you can collect the points and then you get things like um toys Shutterfly I love to do like the Shutterfly thing I love to collect for stuff like that sometimes I like to get toys it just depends I get a lot of free stuff from just collecting diapered points but anyway it's totally worth it if you're going to be buying it just as soon as you come home like open the pack and like cut out the little sticker and then just take a picture of it it's really super simple and easy so anyway that is step number one and collecting the points once you actually have the diapers so if you're wondering how do you save money at the store before you you know whenever you're actually buying the diapers tips 2 through 6 are going to be actually how I save money that way okay so tip number two if you're still it this applies to you if not the rest of them will apply to you I promise and that is to put your diapers on your registry I know the other couponers may say different things for different reasons but I'm telling you any let's put extra diapers on your registry and here is why because at the end of your registry like towards your due date usually within like a month span out you're going to get usually it's about 10% off your registry depending on where you go like Target Toys R Us Babies R Us and Target I already said that Amazon sorry they usually will offer you some sort of discount toward the end like about a month out from your due date so you it's usually about ten percent you know give or take for your registry so if you you know are like a month out and you want to get like extra diapers or stock up you can just go and say okay go to Target this is on my registry 10% off your diapers right there you don't even have to take coupon but you can use a coupon with that 10% discount which is amazing right so anyway I totally recommend that put on your registry you can like order off Amazon with an extra discount all depending on whatever promo they're running at the time but I totally recommend putting diapers on your registry ok so the rest of the tips are for anybody you don't want to be pregnant the tips three through six I'm losing my mind so tip number three is coupons now obviously I did say you know you don't have to be an extreme couponer and if you don't take coupons to the store I do have some other options for you but couponing is obviously you know an easy way you don't have to be an extreme couponer to get the deals the best way is to wait until they're on sale at one of your favorite stores and then to take a coupon with you you don't even have to technically take a coupon depending on the store that you go to but you can always go to places like coupons calm and find like paper coupons they're almost always there I don't think that's ever not seeing Pampers coupons on those are always there but anyway go to places like that you know find your your coupon and take it with you it's really super simple you can print it right before you go you don't have to like go buy a whole bunch of newspapers or print off a ton or anything like that I just print what I need before we go another option and we'll a couple other options if you're going to go to Target you can look at the target cartwheel app for coupons because they do have pampers coupons on there all the time and you just have to scan it at the end of your transaction before you pay and you don't have to worry about printing the coupons or like your local grocery store things like that sometimes they will have where you can log on and you can like download it straight to your store rewards card stuff like that I do have a video which I will link below that's coming up the same week and it's going to be the top 5 apps that I need to save money on baby and different with this different apps but the credible app and different things like that that's included so I'll link that below if you're interested but definitely print a coupon or download to your card it's really super simple and you don't have to be crazy about it just you know it's a coupon tip number four is clearance sometimes diapers go on clearance I'm not exactly why I've seen them all clear at the Target at my grocery store Walmart I'm not exactly sure why they go on clearance I don't think they really has like that expiration date maybe they do at some point time I've seen them on clearance that you know I've seen obviously some like the Pampers diapers I've seen them on clearance which kind of makes sense at the end of summer season but I've also seen just like regular diapers on clearance so check your clear exception if you're going and f'ing is on sale or just check I've definitely gone to my grocery store and I've seen them on clearance for like two dollars off and then I was able to do my coupon with it for next or two more dollars off which is a really really inexpensive four pack of diapers so just definitely check into that and it doesn't hurt to just like walk by your clearance section at the grocery store tip number five is emails sign up for emails no matter what products you use definitely sign up for emails you can go on to pampers calm if you sign up like for their app and you know that kind of stuff you automatically get emails anyway but if you sign up for your favorite products you always get emails they're going to tell you when their promotions running sometimes they'll send coupons where to find coupons different things I stand it's going to save you a whole lot of money and then it'll kind of remind you also you know if a promotions going on or like let you know it emerges going on it just makes a little bit easier because it comes right to your inbox in front of your face so you can remember you know get to know different things like that and it's super easy just go put your email at on the website and then the last deal is for anybody who does not want to deal with the coupons or anything like that they just want to sit at home ice order stuff which is be a lot of times there are two different ways I do this the first thing is Amazon if you have Amazon Prime you can sign up for Amazon mom does it Claudia my mom can you hear my signs in the back room playing as sorry as you can anyway when you get an extra discount off of diapers for every order that's like a whole video in itself but you save and then sometimes they'll run promos or have coupons on Amazon and you just have to sit on your computer and order that like it's really really super simple and then the Pampers just come to your door the second thing is on targets website so on target sometimes they'll have work you buy two boxes of diapers you'll get like a five or $10 gift card and not only does that promotion run in the store and if you go to the store by the way you can use your coupons but that promotion usually runs online also so you can just get on your computer or two boxes Viper's if you have a target red card you do save 5% and get free shipping but whenever it's two boxes of diapers it's the total is usually a much to get usually enough sorry to get free shipping anyway so you don't have to pay for shipping or anything and then you get the boxes which we're on but from the sale price deliver to your door without having to leave plus you get the gift card with it so that's probably one of my favorite promos as the Target Field and a lot of moms swear by the Amazon deal so definitely check those two things off if you don't want to leave and go to the grocery store alright so that is it those are my tips on how I save on diapers if you have any awesome ways that you say buy diapers or you have questions about a new app or about anything please let me know in the comments below I'll be glad to answer them please check out my other video that is sponsored by Pampers which would be the five apps that I need to save money on baby not deciphers but just baby in general and I will link it below underneath everything else but the very first link will be for the app so definitely go download that because you did 150 points just for downloading and taking the picture of your first code but anyway that is it thank you so much for watching it means the world to me and Vicky do favors for sponsoring this video I really hope you could not hear my kid but it's the cutest down there like in there laughing together with their dad but it's totally background noise so I kind of hope you can't hear it even though it's kind of hope you can anyway I'm rambling thanks guys for watching it made the world to me play it and subscribe bye elegans

Heres Our Bulk Fortnightly Groceries! Shopping on a Budget in New Zealand for our family of seven!!
Link to my Garden Channel –

Check out my latest Vlog here:

And more videos on my channel here:
hey everyone and welcome to another grocery haul video so today I did my shopping at PAK'nSAVE and I did our bulk fortnightly shop so I was more aiming to try and spend as little as possible this week rather than buying as much as possible for as cheap as possible um just because of financial reasons and we've got a lot of other expenses coming up at the moment so I tried to keep our budget small and I did manage to spend a little bit less than I did just a lot the last box shop that I did at packing safe so the total I spent for this week was two hundred and fifty eight dollars and seventy one cents so I'm pretty happy with that because I think I got quite a lot of stuff for that price so one thing I wanted to let you guys know about is that I have a gardening channel it's called Emma Jane's garden it's linked to my loving nature mom channel and you can find it through there or I will put a link down below in the description box I know a lot of you have been asking about how we eat our in fruit and veg from our garden and stuff so he seems to be interested to know more so I make a lot of videos about our edible garden on that channel and it's only a new channel so I've only got a few videos but I will be doing more in the future so if you guys want to see more of my gardening be sure to subscribe to that channel so I'm just gonna jump right into it and start showing you guys everything I bought this week I really wanted to get some plants because of some seedlings because our garden is starting to lack a bit in veggies for us to eat so I wanted to get some more so this week I got some kale some red Russian kale and unfortunately they did get a bit broken in their travels but hopefully they'll pick up again as long as I plant them soon and I got some red cabbage red acre and then I got some silver beet some bright light so that's a rainbow blend silver beet and then in the back here I got some salindra beetroot and then this one I got is Pak choy cabbage so that's like a Chinese cabbage and I love using that in stare fries and soups and things like that so those are the plant sets I what so I'm gonna be busy in the garden this weekend and then over here on the table is everything that we bought so this is all our groceries for the week for the next two weeks hopefully I'm gonna start in this corner because this is all the cold things and I need to get them back into the freezer cuz I've already been out for quite a while so I got some shoestring fries and that is to have with our fish I've got some fresh fish this week um this is New Zealand red cod and that was reduced to 653 down from 934 and then I've got just another little one just to make it go around our family for three dollars sixty one so I'm gonna cook that up and bake it in the oven wrapped in paper with lemon and dill or some herbs and things like that and I just got a few sausages this week because I already have some in the freezer so just a few more extras and then I bought some mince pies so that'll be a quick and easy meal for a weeknight and we got some frozen blueberries because we all love eating blueberries I didn't buy too much meat this week just because we already had some in our freezer and we didn't really need to buy any extra also we're not really eating that much meat at the moment alright so for dairy I bought some just some Colby cheese for $7 50 and then I got some natural premium ii creamy yogurt there's $3 and yeah we like that because it's really thick and then I got some butter this was I think it was $4 a block for 400 grams so I got two blocks of butter so for fruit and veg I got some agria potatoes and I feel like such a hypocrite because I forgot to bring my produce bags shopping today and it's just something I always do I always like I've so many produce bags but I always forget to bring them so I had to use the plastic bags today and next week I will try to remember to bring my project then I just got some 1.5 kgs of carrots I bought some white button mushrooms and some royal Gala apples think that we're on special for a dollar 90 90 kg so that was a good price and then I got three bunches of bananas and some whole milk powder and this was I think seven dollars 99 so that was a really good special for that and we used milk milk powder instead of fresh milk just because it is cheaper and it kind of lasts a lot longer usually a packet like this will last us a week and we probably go through about one and a half liters to two liters of milk a day with our family so I find that's the best way to do our milk and over here these are the muesli bars and things for the kids lunch boxes so I got the nut bars apricots and I'm and nut bars and then these spinach apple blueberry and banana veggie fruit sticks those are really handy for the kindy lunches and the little kids because they're a bit smaller than a measly bar and they don't have as much sugar in it which is good and then these are on special for two dollars and I like these ones because they are quite low in sugar as well and they have healthy healthier ingredients then no more muesli bars anyway but then you only get five bars in this instead of six bars which you know my getting packets of muesli bars ooh and I got some prunes for three dollars the kids will love those and I got these peanuts for six dollars I think um well you like these peanuts cuz they're really they're not oily I mean even though they're roasted and salted they're not like oily or overly salted which a lot of peanuts can be we've got two boxes of Jetts crackers I think that was three dollars for two maybe I'll have to double-check that but yeah that was a good special for those and guys I feel like I've got so many groceries this week this is I'm struggling to get through this video but anyway I'll just keep chugging on so I'll try to do it really quick so I got some light Tomatoes sauce and a can I got to katan's of almond breeze unsweetened vanilla flavor and I think this is my favorite out of all the almond milks just the taste of it um but you can only kind of have it on sweet things that's the only problem with that so yeah but I usually just drink it on my cereal or in cups of tea and then I got coconut water just when when later this week because the weather is getting a bit cooler and we don't really drink as much of it when it's not as hot and then come back over here so I got this big this big jar of mayonnaise and that'll keep us going for a while and then a big jar of peanut butter and the right my husband needs that that will not last a week strawberry jam golden syrup and this week I bought some hazelnut spread because the kids really wanted me to so I thought that would be their special treat for this week and I just got some sultanas we tend to go through a lot of stuff kind of vanilla I bought the big pack of raisin boxes this week so this has got 36 in it and it was I can't remember how much $5 something I think so that should last a while and then forties I bought just some normal dill my tea for Jordan he drinks that and some more peppermint tea for me and then I got two cans of black beans and a can of apple pie filling and we just like to use this on cereal and like courage and stuff during the week um yeah as a breakfast addition then I got to diced tomato cans ones garlic and oregano and basil and oregano and over here I got two big tins of peaches so most of the kids on their cereal in the mornings and in some cocoa powder two packets of rolled oats some walnut pieces I usually add these to my brownies when I make them and then I got some mash mini marshmallows we like to add these to our hot chocolates and over here I got some old gold two blocks they were three dollars each um some seaweed rest crackers I'm sure I bought two packets of those oh there it is what I was going dotty these flies the one thing I did forget to buy it was fly spray but I needed to buy fly spray because so many flies at the moment go away flies go away I just have to whip them with my detail she says where was that to you okay so over here I got two tins of coconut cream they were a dollar each and some dishwashing liquid elderberry flavor I think that was three dollars and it's quite natural so it's good for our septic septic tank that we have and just some pasta now I got these biscuits I haven't tried these before but they were three for five dollars and they look similar to some other biscuits that we've tried before so hopefully they'll be as good as those but we've got the lemon flavored chocolate and vanilla so we'll have to see which one's our favorite but I just got those because I can't keep up with the baking for the kids and it's just better to have something on hand rather than nothing and have to stress about feeding the kids so yeah and then I got some la shoes some paper towels which I don't normally buy but I thought this week could be handy to have some paper towels in the kitchen and then I got some mega long toilet paper that is a spectacle Peck but that should last us at least a week we seem to be using a lot more toilet paper than we used to before so either the kids have been wasting it all or they're just going to the toilet more often but hopefully that will last us the week I got some more of these my favorite bought biscuits um I did try the cranberry flavor and the peanut flavor but I think I just prefer the plain Chocolate Chunk flavor the best so some more of those now these pepero me and my husband used to eat Pocky which is similar to this but without the nuts on it and we used to eat that all the time when we first got together and so I found these in the supermarket and they were only a dollar 15 for a box so I got two of those and these are just so delicious but they're so Moorish that I mean it's hard to not eat a whole box in one sitting so but they've got like chopped almonds on the outside with chocolate and then like a wafer stick in the middle so those are mine and my hobbies special treat and then I just got some tortilla rats and some water wipes so onto us telling you about in my last video so they were $2 a packet and then some nappies for the kids I've got ones for a V and then these ones and nappy pants which sometimes I put on the boys at night because they tend to wet the bed just quite a lot and then for bread we got these two packets of hamburger buns over two for five dollars so I would usually buy the Chia butter buns but they were like almost five dollars for a packet of ten and there like really little so I thought there's a better value and even though they're probably not as nice though they'll last a bit longer and then I got these Scottish rolls as well because there were two dollars and yes lunches and things and then I got four loaves of bread for a dollar and then we got cat food that was nine dollars I think for that packet which was a good special so our cats tend to eat a lot more food than our doctor probably because we have three of them so I tend to buy more cat food more frequently than the dog food but so I think that sums up our groceries for this week so that's pretty much it and I hope you guys enjoyed this video don't forget to subscribe if you'd like to see more videos like this let me know what you guys think of my new zealand grocery shop and yeah I will see you guys in the next video bye
