Giveaway & Review - New Purex UltraPacks Plus OXI

As a mom I like products that make your life easier and of course save you money.  I have been using Purex products for years as I routinely find them to cost less.  I recently found out about the Purex Insiders program and signed up.  I received my first Purex product to review and share with my readers.  I received a package of the New Purex UltraPacks plus Oxi Zout stain removers.  I had not previously tried this particular Purex product before.  I used these with my laundry yesterday and I was happy with the results.  I didn't have any particular stains I was trying to get out.  Yeah a week without spilling something on myself that is an amazing feat. 

If you are not familiar with laundry detergent pods or packs they are a perfect form factor as you don't have to worry about measuring you just toss the pack in your washing machine and start the wash.  I was thinking these would be helpful for my daughter who lives in the dorms as she would not have to worry about lugging a heavy bottle of detergent to the laundry room.

The New Purex UltraPacks plus Oxi work to remove tough stains.  Each UltraPack contains concentrated DirtLift Action formula with 2X times the cleaning power in every drop.  I know I personally save money by using Purex products. 

How would you like to try these new Purex UltraPacks?  Well I am happy to be giving away 3 coupons for 3 lucky people.  Enter on the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win a coupon for the New Purex UltraPacks.

Only one entry per person open to anyone in the US.

Along With


Second & Third Place Prize Packages:

By far, Halloween is my favorite holiday to decorate on. I remember
from being 6 years old wanting to stay home and make our house more
spooky looking other than going out trick or treating. Well lets just say
some 40 plus years later, things have not changed, I still get a scary ghost
or skeleton added in somewhere on Halloween. This giveaway will bring both
the scary and the treats to the winner and a little added spook for the runner
up prizes.

Plow & Hearth. being the excellent sponsor they are, have added the leader of
scares to this collection with their Motion Activated Halloween Mummy with sound.
This is by far the coolest Halloween decoration I have ever seen.  You can either
sit it in a chair to great your trick or treaters or you can hang him from a tree.

It's motion-activated Mummy's head will surprise each visitor with a variety
of haunting phrases that will have them talking about it to all their friends as
he comes alive upon their visit to your house this Halloween. So head on over
to Plow & Hearth and order yours to have a terrific Halloween experience
with all .

Life-size wire frame in poly/cotton shredded rags make the details. Wonderfully wicked and sure to surprise!

Flameless LED Hanging Lantern in Spider Web w/Timer

 Looking for those special Halloween decorations that need no flames to
keep them bright. Then this Lantern and Tea Lights from Mark Feldstein and Assoc.
have just what your looking for. I can't remember how may times that I would
have to keep re-lighting our pumpkins when our kids were small on Halloween.
One of the biggest concerns we had were that they were going to get burnt from
the flames or hot melting wax that regular candles would produce. Being a Grandfather
of 7 beautiful Grandchildren, their safety comes #1 and these candles in the LED Hanging
Lantern or Tea Lights both provide.

Light your porch, deck or home for Halloween with this festive indoor/outdoor lantern that can be hung or stand alone. Lantern features an LED Flameless Candle that provides a beautiful glow without the hazards of an open flame or melting wax. The ornate design of the lantern allows the light to shine through. Spooky spider design is perfect for this fun holiday. As an added bonus, the lantern includes a manual on/off timer that turns the candle on at the same time everyday for 6 hours and off for 18 hours. Safe for both indoor and outdoor use! Requires 3 AAA batteries. Safe for kids and pets -- no flame. 5 1/2" x 3 3/4" -- Hang or Stand Alone. Black Metal Lantern w/ spiders and web cutouts.

Along With


Scatter these Orange & Black LED Tea Lights around any room during the Halloween season to brighten up the spooky festivities. Features a safe LED light source that flickers and glows like a traditional tea light – minus the hazards caused by an open flame or dripping wax. These are excellent to provide that little extra touch of spooky on Halloween night along
with a big touch of safety at the same time.

Trick or Trees Treat Box

It’s our very best packed into our new Trick or Trees design Snacker’s Choice Box. You’ll find a clear canister of S’Mores Corn, along with bags of Cheese, White Cheddar and Caramel Corn.  After the gourmet popcorn experience, you can dive into Dry Roast Peanuts, Pixies® Mini Halloween Hostess Pretzels, Candy Corn Taffy, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Monster Mash Jelly Belly® Beans and Sour Gummi Pumpkins.

Giveaway - Super Duper Publications Word Flips - Ends 10-24-13

Saving Money Can Be Fun is pleased to share this great review and giveaway from BabyDashCo. Although I did not personally review this product, I have won a few products from Super Duper Publications and they are wonderful.

Word Flips with Real words and pictures is a must for children with limited speech, unintelligible speech, and/or childhood apraxia of speech! Teach functional vocabulary words, such as greetings and requests (for example, "hi,""go," and "bye,") while practicing up to three repetitions of sound sequences. Word FLIPS includes three sections of identical picture words with four tabs in each section that divide the words according to articulatory placement: Bilabial, Alveolar, Velar, and Palatal. Begin teaching severely unintelligible children by having them repeat identical earlier developing sounds, such as "boo-boo-boo." Older or more verbal children can practice a variety of sequences, such as "tie-tea-shoe" as a warm-up to practicing sentences.
word flips
My 4-year-old loves to learn and he's at the perfect age to start bettering his speech especially since he'll start kindergarten next year. I want him to go with a head start and Word Flips is the perfect way to start! I found that he'll pick up the Word Flips on his own and flip through the cards. It's great to see him want to learn. Word Flips is also great for breaks or after school learning to keep their mind active! I really love using Word Flips with my kids.
word flips 1
The Word Flips had a convenient built-in stand to make it easier for your child to learn. I found he's not complaining as much because it's at eye level vs. laying down on a table where his neck can get sore faster.

Giveaway - RYOBI 40 Volt Cordless Chainsaw Ends 10-5-13


Looking for an Awesome Gift for the man in your life, here is your chance to win something, most men would love to have.
with the help of a group of amazing blogs shown
below, brings you this terrific event just in time for
the Fall cleanup. This will be a great deal easier for
the lucky winner of this event using the Ryobi Cordless

RYOBI 40 Volt Cordless Chainsaw Giveaway

The masterful company of RYOBI has been kind enough to provide 
this amazing chainsaw to one lucky winner of this giveaway. I had
the experience of reviewing and trying out this product and I definitely
give it 5 stars. With fall coming this is the only tool you will need when
cutting down or trimming small branches or trees.It easily cut down
branches 3-4 inches in diameter with ease. There is no need to use force
when cutting, just set back and let the chainsaw do the work for you. 

After cutting 10 3-4 inches in diameter branches, I also easily cut through
some larger branches around 6 or 7 inches in diameter with no problem. After
all this work you would think the battery had to be almost dead, well that
is far from the truth. The Lithium Battery still had half of it charge left to go
as well as the oil was at the same stage. One of the amazing things about 
this saw is it is very quiet and light to carry. Other saws would have woke
up the entire neighborhood, not only that, your arms would have been sore 
from using a heavier gas machine or tugging around a extension cord from
the corded models. I love the tool less chain tensioning feature that makes
adjustments a breeze

If your looking to cut downs large tree that belong in a forest than this saw is
not for you. But if you want a tool that starts in a second every time and is capable
of cleaning and trimming up small to medium branches around your house then
this should be the only chainsaw you will ever need for these purposes.

Ryobi takes cordless technology to the next level with the new 40V Lithium-ion Outdoor Series. Designed for the perfect marriage of Power and Convenience, this chainsaw is powered by a 40V Lithium-ion battery. That means fade-free performance, maximum power, and maximum run time. All backed by a 3 year warranty. The Ryobi 40V Lithium-ion Chainsaw gives you a great reason to enter the Cordless Age.
No more having to stretch extension cords across your yard or worry about running out of gas with this
top of the line chainsaw.

40V Lithium-Ion battery 
Quick charger fully charges your battery in less than 2 hours 
12 in. bar and chain 
Tool-less chain tensioning for simple adjustments
