We are just a little over a month away from the start of the annual Michigan Renaissance Festival in Holly, Michigan. We love attending this festival as a family (and even sneaking away as a couple) and it draws large crowds from throughout Michigan and out of state!

This year's weekend themes are:
  • Harvest Huzzah (9/23-9/24)
  • Festival Friday (9/29) & Sweet Endings (9/30-10/1)


We have been attending the Renaissance Festival for over 20 years and they are always adding new foods, vendors, shows and attractions to the event. Some of the newer popular event attractions are Feast of Fantasy, Renaissance Romance, King's Happy Hour, Pub Crawl, Once Upon a Tea Time, Pig 'N Swig (gourmet bacon and beer tasting - this was a fun event!) and even a special Ladies Shopping Day.


The ever popular Masquerade Ball (21 and Older) - Details here (this sells out too so book your tickets now if interested).


Gears, Gadgets & Glam: A Steampunk Cocktail Party (details here - this will sell out so book now if interested).

Advance tickets can be purchased on the Michigan Renaissance Festival's website in addition to discounted tickets at local retailers like Kroger, Menards, Walgreens and Goodwill.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales - Available on Digital HD 9/19!! #sponsored

“The featured product was provided free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% the opinion of the Coupon Savvy Sarah family. Please note that your experiences with products featured here may vary from ours. This post may contain affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.”


From Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer Films, it was announced today at D23 Expo, that “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales”—the fifth film in the now-iconic “Pirates of the Caribbean” film franchise—will sail home on Digital in HD and 4K Ultra HD™ on September 19, and on 4K Ultra HD™/Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, DVD and On-Demand on October 3.

“Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” is a rollicking new tale of the high seas, infused with all the elements of fantasy, humor and action that have resulted in an international phenomenon for the past 13 years. Johnny Depp returns to his Academy Award®-nominated role as the outrageous, swashbuckling scoundrel Captain Jack Sparrow, and is joined by Oscar® winners Javier Bardem (Best Supporting Actor, “No Country for Old Men”) and Geoffrey Rush (Best Actor, “Shine”).


Fans who bring home “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales” will experience the nonstop action in stunning 4K Ultra HD format, the ultimate home entertainment experience with next-generation high dynamic range (HDR) visuals and Dolby Atmos® immersive audio.

Bonus material includes a collection of behind-the-scenes, making-of stories, including a conversation with directors Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg; a sit-down with the two young newcomers who play Henry and Carina; the secrets behind the menacing new villain, Salazar, and his ferocious ghost sharks; an on-set visit with Jack’s first mate from all five films; a chat with Sir Paul McCartney who appears as Uncle Jack; and a discussion about the franchise’s legacy; along with hilarious bloopers, deleted scenes and memories from producer Jerry Bruckheimer’s photo diary.

Movie Trailer:



The rip-roaring adventure—packed with humor, suspense and jaw-dropping special effects—finds down-on-his-luck Captain Jack feeling the winds of ill fortune blowing strongly his way when deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar (Bardem), escape from the Devil's Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea—notably Jack.

Our Thoughts:

Our daughter got a sneak peek of of the fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie - Dead Men Tell No Tales on Digital HD. I confess that Rose hadn't seen the previous movies due to her age at the time (it's been 6 years) and she LOVED this movie as did I. She wasn't lost having not seen the others but I know she missed a few references. We binge-watched the first 4 movies for her to catch up. I have to say I am happy to see this installment came back around to the original draw of the first 3 movies (the 4th was missing my boyfriend Orlando Bloom and his love interest Kiera Knightly) and including glimpses of these two characters. I definitely recommend watching this movie!

Protect your devices at Home and Small Businesses with the @CUJO Smart Internet Firewall at @BestBuy! #ad #CUJO

"The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are those of Coupon Savvy Sarah."


In this age of technology being used as widely as it is, our house and our work spaces are filled with multiple devices! In our house right now alone we have iPhones, an iPad, Chromecast, tablets, laptops, a desktop computer, a smart TV and more. Granted my husband is a principal, our daughter in high school and between my day job outside the home and my blogging job in the evening....we use it all for different purposes.

I love when our devices are all connected and serve a purpose, but these days it seems like each week we are hearing about companies getting hacked, security breaches and more....and those are big companies! What about families or individuals like ourselves. Being hacked is a major invasion of privacy and Best Buy now has a new piece of tech to make sure that doesn't happen!


That is where the CUJO Smart Internet Firewall comes in - check out some of it's main features:
  • Business Level Internet Security
  • Guards all devices
  • Parental controls
  • Connect to router, control with app
  • Blazing fast (built with 1 GB ethernet)

Basically, CUJO is a smart firewall for the connected home, designed to bring business-level security to the home network. This one device will secure all devices connecting to the WiFi router. CUJO detects and blocks malicious sites, viruses, and hacks. Think of it like antivirus for your entire network. Plus, CUJO lets you control what your kids access online and keep them safe - this I love with having a 14 year old that we are slowly allowing to enter the unsteady waters of social media bit by bit.

Connecting to CUJO was super easy. Usually I let my tech-savvy husband hook things up but since this said it was easy to hook up, I decided to give it a go! All I needed to do was connect CUJO to our WiFi router, make sure my phone was connected to the same network as CUJO and then download the CUJO app to my phone.


CUJO Parental Control Features:
  • Parental controls for all devices
  • Internet Filter
  • Time Limits
  • Social Media Monitoring
  • Pause Internet
  • Alerts and Reporting
  • Remote Administration
  • User Profiles and Settings

I love the parental controls, especially the time limits because our daughter gets so engrossed in what she is watching on YouTube or games she is playing that time gets away from her.

If you are looking to protect your home devices or small business, take a look at what the CUJO Smart Internet Firewall at Best Buy has to offer. You can find all the details, specs, reviews and more here on Best Buy's website!
