Kenmore “Crazy Cleaning Confessions” contest

Capture your family's crazy cleaning confession for a chance to win . Also, the crazier, the better! You could be one of three lucky winners who receive a new Kenmore appliance. We have had some extreme cleaning measures at our home thanks to my wonderful husband. My favorite is the day I asked if he could please sweep the floors and get all the cobwebs down. Well he did it all right, with the help of a leaf blower.

This man will do just about anything to not have to do house chores. But you have to love him for his creativity.

Well I found out my hubby is not the only one out there with extreme cleaning measures. Head over to Kenmore YouTube website and laugh yourself silly watching all the videos people have uploaded. While you're there upload one of your extreme cleaning videos and you may be one of the three that wins new appliances.

The rules and entry dates for the contest can be found here

Do you have any off-beat habits of your own? List yours and if I get at least 10 different answers I will pick the funniest one and send them out a little surprise in the mail ( maybe a couple free bowling passes ..hint hint).

Good luck,

GIVEAWAY - Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil

Hey everyone,

I am so excited to being hosting this giveaway for a quart of Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil. When I first opened the box and saw the Coconut oil I had no idea what I was going to do with it. Well lucky for me they included a book called " Virgin Coconut Oil " by Brian and Marianita Jader Shilhavy. I read through it and can't wait to try out the recipes they have listed.

You can visit the Tropical Traditions website here for coconut recipes
here. I decided to make vegetable fried rice. Let me tell you it turned out so good. I had my husband try it and he said it was awesome! He did notice it was a little sweet and I told him it was the coconut oil. Yummy!! Kids scarfed it up too.

Here is a short 3 minute video on how they discovered virgin coconut oil.

Here is some info from their website

Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil contains no trans fatty acids. We do NOT mass produce this oil. It is made by families who are coconut farmers using old-fashioned traditional methods that have been used in the Philippines for hundreds of years. Our coconut trees and family producers are certified organic according to strict USDA standards. The families who produce the oil are also trained according to GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) standards and re-certified each year. This high-grade Virgin Coconut Oil has a long shelf life due to the high antioxidant properties.

Lucky for you Tropical Traditions is going to giveaway one quart of Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil (ARV $37.50) to one Simply ME reader. Yeah for you!!

Sprout Organic baby Food Review

I was given the opportunity to review Sprout organic baby food.
I received a box full of different flavors. I was impressed with the different varieties of flavors I received. You can check them out for yourselves here.

A couple of my favorites are these two flavors.

I like the fact the their baby food is made with no preservatives, starches, sugar or fillers. I also like the packaging of the baby food. Their unique pouch packaging reduces landfill waste and saves energy. Plus the packs have a ziploc type closure so you can store the unused baby food (if there is any left that is!!! )

I heated up the Sweet baby carrots, apples and mango's for a little afternoon treat. She ate it up. I would spoon her a scoop and then give her a bite of banana. She loved it. Here is the proof

Their organic baby food retails for $16.65 for a 12 pack. They also offer a Sprout Baby Club which allows you to go online once a month and order your baby's food in bulk. You also receive a discounted rate plus free shipping

Besides baby food Sprout Baby has a wide variety of books, baby and mommy personal hygiene items and a great gift section. Their baby food would make a great baby shower gift!

Hope you enjoyed my review.

I love garage sales

So today Summer and I got up at the crack of dawn ( ok 7 am ) and started our garage sale hunting. I hit the motherload today. Check out what Summer got with her birthday money from her Great Grandma Webster.

The kitchen is in perfect condition , plus it came with about 100 pieces of fake fruit, veggies, pizzas, pots and pans and more. I think it was a steal at $40 bucks. What do you think??

Plus the smile on her face was well worth it.

Oh and at the next place I got all this for just 2 bucks. Sorry I forgot to take a picture before everyone grabbed their stuff. Here it goes:

1. 3 decks of unopened cards
2. calculator
3. two wooden owl kits
4. binder for school
5. boogle game
6. felt board with a ton of felt pieces
7. Ron Jon swim trunks
8. Button down Skull shirt
9. multiplication plastic game thingy , where you push on the square and the answer pops up

Boy do I love the thrill of the hunt!!
I don't think I can ever pay full price for something again.

Got Free Cards - Check em out

So in my quest to start saving money I thought about birthday cards. How many times do I spend 3 bucks on a card another 40 something cents to mail and then it gets tossed in the trash a few weeks after the recepient receives it. So my solution is E-cards. I found the best site on the web for them. You will enjoy sending Free Ecards to your friends.They have Birthday Ecards. My favorite birthday Ecard is this one called the chicken dance. You can also personalize the Ecard with a photo or a song of your choice. Super cool!!

The holidays are just around the corner. They also have Halloween Ecards and Christmas Ecards. Besides being FREE they don't take up space in our landfills.


I would like to thank

Mom Fuse for this oppurtunity.

Zuvo Water - Money Saver?

I am constantly racking my brain for ways to save money. I don't know if it's something about living in California but everyone has a water bottle in their hands wherever I go. I try and be good and drink my 64 ounces of water a day , but I get tired of buying water bottles. Plus they are pricey.

I found a product called Zuvo Water Purator. It loks great for many reasons:

. Great on your wallet - Over time, Zuvo costs a fraction of what you'll spend on bottled water or pitcher filters.

. By using this product you personally can help not be one of the users of the 60 million plastic water bottles that end up in our landfills every day.

. Lastly, the Zuva attaches straight to your faucet and cleans your water right there.

For more information on the Zuvo check them out here

Munchie Mug Giveaway

I have found the coolest thing for toddlers! It is a munchie mug. What is a munchie mug you might ask? It's a plastic cup that you fill with munchies for your little one. It has a lid that you screw into place and that is covered with stretchy fabric with a little slit in it for your toddler to put their hand in to get to their munchies.

The cool thing is that they can't spill or pour out their food all over your house or car. I just took it on our road trip to keep Summer entertained and she loved it!!

I have one munchie mug to giveaway to one Simply Me reader!!!

Win it!! Visit Munchie Mug and let me know what color you would like if you won!
