This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you or someone you care for is wheelchair bound, you know the hassle of getting in and out of vehicles, particularly if you are wanting to drive and are wheelchair bound. It used to be nearly unattainable to get a wheelchair accessible van that was customized for each user’s needs, but now NMEDA has upped the industry standard for safe driving equipment for disabled people.

NMEDA does not sell anything – instead they refer you to retailers (members of their non-profit organization) who sell handicap vans and vehicle modifications for disabled people.

NMEDA also has higher-level members who adhere to the highest standard in quality they are in the Quality Assurance Program (QAP). QUP requires participating members to be inspected by an independent engineering firm to monitor quality, compliance, insurance and proper registration with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The QAP is a voluntary program and shows that a dealership is willing to go the extra mile to make quality modified vehicles.

How does the process of buying a handicap accessible van work?
Mostly because all handicap people are not the same, vans sold online may not be the best fit for you. NMEDA is a free organization to consumers that helps you find a Mobility Equipment Dealer, then helps you find a Driver Rehabilitation Specialist (DRS) who will lists the precise equipment you will need. Then you can decide on a vehicle (remember there are new and used ones so prices vary greatly), train you on your new equipment, then help you submit your Mobility Assistance Reimbursement Application to the appropriate vehicle manufacturer.

To find the closest dealer near you, go to and type in your zip code.  When I typed mine in, a dealership in Centerville, UT pulled up.  It included its address and website where you could view wheelchair accessible vans for sell or rent, and you could sell or trade up a wheelchair accessible vehicle you already owned. How far away is the closest dealer near you?

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Crowdtap. All opinions are 100% mine.


I just discovered Crowdtap where you earn rewards for gift cards by taking polls, participating in discussions with brands, sharing online content, sampling products and throwing house parties with leading brands. Basically all the things us couponers do on a regular basis anyways!

I just signed up. At first they have you login through Facebook, so it is easy to sign up. Then you select which charity you want 5% of your proceeds to go to – and I selected one that helps get clean water to third world areas. Then you setup your profile and answer polls to get points and move up levels. I took about 10 minutes to get up to level 2 and get $1.05.

I also answered a question where other users answer the same question, and vote on who answered the best. This was called an “Action”. The top 3 most selected, by other users, as the best answers get $10 each. You also get points just for answering.

Tap In at and hopefully it becomes like Kraft First Taste where you get awesome freebies, or House Party where you get to throw house parties. I have had good luck with both of those sites which Crowdtap site reminds me of. Overall I think their concept is good, if they end up delivering on the great samples and house parties, which is my favorite part of sites like these. I also have noticed on sites similar to these, the more you participate the more free samples and things you get, so we will see if that is how Crowdtap works as I keep experimenting on it.

The brand I would love to see the most on Crowdtap is Blue Bunny Ice Cream. I love their ice cream and would love to throw a house party for them or sample new products for them.

I got a Robby Wash Ball to review back in July.   My 3 years old put it in the washer for me and it’s still there workin’.

  • You just put the Robby Wash in your washer.
  • Leave them there for 120 washes.
  • And you don’t have to add detergent!

I put it in and have not been using laundry detergent – since 10 ounces of macro-molecules of laundry detergent in the Robby Ball lasts in the washer up to 12 months.  This replaces 75 lbs. of traditional laundry detergent.

Being a mom with 2 toddlers, I was skeptical, since I am used to having stains set in. The Robby Ball also came with a little stick of cleaner to get the set in stains out.  Between it and the Robby Ball, I have had no problems.  No stains and my clothes are fresh and clean.

Now, I do still add my fabric softner to the rinse cycle to keep my clothes soft.

My brother does his laundry at my house since he’s in college, and he likes it because it is so easy.  He never has to wonder how much detergent to put in, because you don’t do anything.  Just dump the clothes in.

The Robby Ball still looks full of its macro-molecules and I believe its claim that it lasts 120 washes – about 1 years worth for normally people with 2.3 loads per week.  My family does more like 4-6 loads per week, so I will be happy if it lasts six months.

The Robby Wash Laundry Ball pack (blue or fuchsia) is $32.95 and will last up to 120 washes. Visit Oransi for more information or to purchase Robby Wash.  They claim it will save you $100 per year based on buying regular detergents.   I bet this is true for regular folks – for us couponers the savings probably would be much less since we pay so much less for detergents, but it still may save you lots of money and time.

More details from the Oransi site:

  • Contains hypoallergenic laundry detergent formulas and can be used as baby laundry detergent.
  • Meets the strict environmental compliance requirements of Europe (more stringent than U.S.) and contains no phosphates or chlorine.
  • Economical refills allow each Robby Wash ball to last two to three years.
  • The blue Robby Wash ball can be used in either cold or hot water while maintaining the softness and colors of washed items.
  • The fuchsia Robby Ball is formulated to specifically clean colored laundry items and is for use in cool water temperatures.

Thanks SheBlogs and Oransi for providing me this product to review.
