BOLDFACE - The coolest backpack ever!

BOLDFACE ( has married technology with backpacks to allow parents to create their own on-demand one-of-a-kind backpack in under 5 minutes! Backpack images are photo quality. Now mom and dad can chuck that tacky t-shirt with their kid on it and rock something really cool!

BOLDFACE backpacks come with interchangeable "faces" that can be swapped out in seconds, providing consumers with the ability to completely change the look of their backpack. When junior grows older, mom and dad can just make a new "face" and replace the old one of junior in seconds!  

Consumers no longer must take what global backpack producers shove down their throat. Consumers are now empowered to express themselves by creating their own backpack, providing them the utility of a traditional backpack with a platform for self expression.

When consumers grow tired of their backpack they need not purchase a new backpack. They only need to create a new "face."

BOLDFACE is the WORLD'S ONLY maker of on-demand customized backpacks with interchangeable faces.

The BOLDFACE backpack was born out of the frustration founder and inventor Randy Fenton had finding a backpack for his finicky daughter. Randy had launched BOLDFACE a year earlier. At the time it only produced guitar bags using the same on-demand customization technology with interchangeable faces. Randy tinkered with backpack designs, beta testing several versions before finalizing the design this summer.

BOLDFACE allows consumers to upload their images using a widget. The widget provides consumers with the ability to position the image as desired, producing a one-of-a-kind backpack.

BOLDFACE backpacks are perfect for students, parents and professionals. If you can capture it on a digital image you can BOLDFACE IT!

Recently BOLDFACE entered into an agreement with Live Nation to produce backpacks for musical acts. BOLDFACE has launched a line of backpacks for Foo Fighters ( and The Voice winner Sawyer Fredericks ( BOLDFACE expects to launch lines for at least 10 more musical acts by the holidays and nearly 100 top musical acts by spring 2017. All lines will feature multiple designs and interchangeable faces.

Keep Your Family Healthy During the Fall and Winter Season

There’s no question that having a family can be quite expensive. After paying your mortgage, for groceries and keeping the lights on, the last thing you need to account for is an unexpected medical bill. Take a peek at this infographic for a quick lesson on respiratory health, then learn a few tips for keeping your family safe from winter and cold bugs.

Stay Wrapped Up

Even with the heater on during the colder months of the year, some in your family might still be chilly. Rather than bumping the heat up, which costs more money, you can instead use layers to keep everyone comfortable and toasty. Humans are warm-blooded, and being cold for too long can lead to sickness.

Review Your Hygiene Habits

The fall and winter seasons are great times to review your family’s hygiene habits. For instance, make sure you and your kids are washing your hands after touching doorknobs, handling food and when going to public restrooms. Additionally, be sure to wipe down common surfaces with antibacterial wipes and sprays to keep germs at bay. When grocery shopping in the heart of cold and flu season, you’ll most certainly want to wipe down grocery carts before handling them.

Eat Right

The food you eat also goes a long way in strengthening your immune system. Prepare healthy foods and snacks for your family, making sure you include a variety of colors on your plates and in your bowls. Specific foods that are good for your immune system include:

  • Spinach
  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Citrus fruits
  • Broccoli
  • Red bell peppers

Try to find tasty recipes for meals that include these ingredients and others known to keep sickness at bay.

Stay Well-Hydrated

While your family is staying warm, well fed and washing their hands, make sure everyone is drinking plenty of water. It’s especially important to drink plenty of fluids while the heater is on and drying out the air and your skin. Water and fruit teas are the best options, and much better than soda and other unhealthy drinks. For small kids, you might be better off offering them sugar-free drinks that aren’t acidic or unhealthy. It won’t do you much good to keep your kids from catching a cold if they become victims of childhood obesity.

Make Sure You Have Over-the-Counter Medicines on Hand

Because it’s inevitable that someone in your household will get sick even if you follow the above tips, you might as well be prepared. Over-the-counter medicines you should have close at hand include decongestants, cold medicine and ibuprofen. You might also want to look into making sure your small children have received all their necessary vaccinations. At the first hint of a cough or congestion, go ahead and give a small dose of medicine, just to be on the safe side and head sickness off at the pass.

As you can see, there’s a lot you can do to keep your family healthy this fall and winter. Put these tips to good use to reduce your chances of incurring unnecessary hospital and medical bills and to keep from having to use your sick days.

Couponing: A fun way to be frugal!

 When I get together with my friends, we often talk about different ways to spend money, whether it's specials for meals, discounts on rental cars, savings on clothing, or last-minute savings on trips. Some savings are harder to find than others. For the dedicated saver, there are plenty of ways to save money -- and couponing is just one of them.


Take care when you use coupons.

Let's say that you find a coupon that gives you savings on deodorant -- but you have to buy four sticks instead of just one, and you've never tried that brand before. So you buy the bulk pack, steam open the first container, and then you realize that you're going to be smelling much more like a floral afternoon than you thought when you first saw the packaging. Are you going to stay committed to the deodorant and use all four containers? Or are you going to put them in the back of a cabinet and then go back to your tried and true brand?

Couponing apps can come in handy. Before you go to the store for your next shopping excursion, check out your couponing apps to see what is on sale. Often you'll find combinations of items (such as milk and breakfast sausage, or snack foods and sodas). Make sure that you need (and will actually use) all of the items in the combination -- otherwise, you're spending money to save money, which does not make a lot of sense. This also helps when you're shopping for something other than groceries. Promo codes offered by many retailers and coupon stores, for example and can come in handy big time when you head to the online checkout.

Plan your meals for the week and then see what coupons will help you out.

Many times, your coupons for edibles will end up saving you money on processed foods (pasta, prepackaged side dishes) or prepared entrees that are frozen (lasagnas, enchiladas, tacos and the like). If you plan out what you want to eat for the week, you can then use your selections to find the best deals. If those couponing apps show you great deals on some entrees, though, you can go ahead and revise your meal outline for the week on the basis of what you save.

List all of the ingredients that you will need for each meal, so that you don't end up standing over your stove and realizing that you are missing two or three key ingredients -- the type that will ruin your dinner if you don't have them. Then you're more likely to order out for Chinese or a pizza -- and the cost of that can undo your savings plan for the entire week. There are apps that will allow you to enter the ingredients that you have, and then they will show you recipes that you can make using what is in the pantry. You'll save money -- and you'll end up eating healthier most of the time.

Couponing is a great way to save money and make your money stretch further each month. Putting these tips to work for you will reduce stress and expand the room in your budget.
