I recieved a sample of Childrens Advil and coupons to share from Smiley360. This medicine tastes great and will bring the fever down. It also lasts 8 hours,so they can get some sleep when they are sick.  Click here for more information and a 1.00 off coupon. http://smiley360.com/326383.cfm

Pizza Pizza Deal at Albertsons

This week until Tuesday January 31st there is a great deal on frozen pizza. Albertsons Culinary Circle's frozen pizza is on sale for 3.99 and there is an in store coupon for 2.00 off two. So that makes the pizza 3.00 each! Thats a great deal for this frugal mom as to make pizza from scratch it would cost me that price. These pizzas are comparable to Digornos and taste great. I stock up and keep them in the freezer for days when I cant be home to cook. The older boys love to make them. They are also great for Sunday dinner after church,as they are hubby approved.  There is a limit of one coupon per transaction,so do two orders if you want to get four pizzas like me. I might even go back to the store if I can fit more in my freezer.

Dolce Gusto coffee maker

I won this coffee maker from a Facebook contest last month. I was excited to try it as my other esspresso machine isin the repair shop and I have had to use a regular coffee maker. The Dulce Gusto came with some capsules, so I was able to try it right away. The machine is easy to operate,just place the coffee in the slot and turn on the water.
You can use tall mugs also with this machine. The over taste of the coffee is good but the capsules are pricey. They are about .50 each. I dont like that I can not use my own coffee like I can with my other esspresso machine. This machine is a good option for those who are cutting back on coffee shop coffee but for money saving people like me,the machine is too costly to use. Until the company makes a thing to put your own coffee in I will stick to my old espresso machine. 
The opinions expressed are my own and I was not compesated in any form. I recieved the Dulce Gusto from a contest.

Saline Ambassador

I got selected to be in the  Saline Ambassador Program. I will be getting some Boogie wipes to share with my mom and dad friends. For those who are not familiar with Boogie wipes,they are a moist wipe to wipe up all those nose messes on your little ones faces. The wipes feel so much better then a tissue so your little one may just allow you to wipe their nose. I cant wait to share these Boogie wipes.

Tide Coldwater

I have a wonderful opportunity to put Tide Coldwater to the test. I recieved a bottle of Tide Coldwater from SheSpeaks and P&G to test. Tide Coldwater will help you save money and the environment,as you will use less energy washing in cold water.Tide Coldwater is specially formated to help get clothes clean when they are washed in cold water. In fact Tide Coldwater removes stains better in cold water than leading bargain liquid detergents in warm water. Switching to washing in cold water is just one small step you can do to conserve energy and save money on your utility bill. That is a win for me.
 Well today is laundry day at my house and I have about five loads to do.
I am excited to see if Tide can handle my wash in cold water. Here is a close up of Tide Coldwater,so you know what it looks like to find it at a store.

I have a little boy named Jesse and his nickname is Messy Jesse as he spills and gets his clothes dirty. Jesse will help me with this challange as he always has stains on his clothes.

The other day he was drinking fruit punch soda, a friend gave to him,as I dont give him things that stain. Sure enough,as he is messy Jesse,he spilled some on his shirt. This happened two days ago,so the stain is pretty well set in his shirt.

So I threw his shirt into a load of laundry,without pre-treating it. I want to see if Tide Coldwater can get it out using cold water. On my washer I have a cold water setting so I used that setting along with a capfull of Tide Coldwater detergent. I did not think the stain would come out of Jesse's shirt but I was wrong. Tide Coldwater took the stain right out.

So if you have a messy person in your house, like me, and want to save money try Tide Coldwater detergent. Tide will get your clothes clean,conserve energy, and save money on your utility bill as it costs more to use hot water to do clothes.

I recieved a sample of Tide Coldwater and a gift card from P&G and SheSpeaks  to review and these opinions are my own.
