First, I wanna tell you that the shipping speed of eBags is AWESOME! These packing cubes arrived in a matter of hours from the time I ordered them. I ordered them one day and had them the very next day! Talk about Fast!!! These packing cubes are great to use for an over night trip or an extended stay at Grandmas house! I love this set of packing cubes. There is a size that is great for everything you may need when you are away from home! We travel a few times a year on our "Get away from it all" vacations. Those vacations are when we just decide we need a break from home and run away for a few days, usually on a long weekend or when every one just needs to unwind from school. These packing cubes were great for our last vacation! It has always been a struggle for me to pack. The hardest part about packing has been packing for my kiddos. They think that 1 outfit, swimsuit, pair of socks and a pair of undies will work for a week..:( This set of packing cubes has been a huge help. I used one cube for undies and socks and it keeps them all in placed wonderfully. I used another cube to hold their outfits and Pj's. The last cube was for my stuff:) I placed the outfits in the bags and zip them up and everything stayed in place from one destination to the next. Usually everything gets shuffled around and crinkled during the trip in the luggage. I don't have to worry about that. Everything is right where I put it. I love the colors and that they are vented to allow air to get into the bags.The packing cubes are lightweight and have easy to carry handles. When you are not using them they lay flat and are easy to store out of the way till you need them again! They weigh 12oz and are made of TechLite Diamond Nylon and have a Lifetime Warranty.
eBags has many other sizes and shapes of their cubes! Check out eBags at their website HERE.
The cubes that I received for my review are on sale at this time for ONLY $20.99. Run on over to eBags and pick you up a set for your next vacation.
They come on many great colors!

Review ~Redbox now rents Video GAMES!!

Hi ya'll!
As a member of Smiley360 I get the chance to
review many great items!
This time around, I got the chance to review a Wii video game
 from Smiley360 called Go Vacation. As part of the mission I threw a small gaming get-together with a handful family and friends to explain/show to them how easy and fun it is to rent video games from Red box!
Renting more than 1.5 billion discs to date, Redbox is America's destination for movies and video games. With more than 28,000 locations nationwide, Redbox is the fun, fast, easy way to rent the latest new release movies on DVD or Blu-ray Disc® and the top new releases of family video games. Featuring up to 200 titles and 630 discs, Redbox is a fully automated video rental store contained in 12-square feet of retail space. With more than 68 percent of the U.S. population living within a five-minute drive of a Redbox kiosk, Redbox is where America rents movies and games.
Redbox is so fun, fast and easy to use. My family and friends had a great time enjoying the games we rented from RedBox.
I like that I can reserve the video game the kiddos really wanna try or movie that I wanna see on their website and then swing by the red box and pick it up when its convenient to me.
Each rental is $1 per day and rentals have to be
returned by 9PM to avoid another day charge.
Renting a movie or video game is as simple as
touching the kiosk screen, adding the item to your cart,
swiping your card, verifying your email address and
collecting your movie or game.
Returning them is even easier! Touch the "return" button on
 the touch screen of the kiosk and slipping your video
or movie in the return slot!
 Find a Redbox kiosk near you . When you find a kiosk near you, you can also see the available movie and video games at that kiosk before you even get there.
Redbox carries the most popular Wii, Xbox360
and PS3 games!

disclosure~ I received a Wii game to keep and 5 video game codes to be used at RedBox in exchange for my review of RedBox. No other compensation was given and reviews are my own.

Have you tried the TASKS at SWAGBUCKS?

Hi Gang!
Tasks are an EASY way to earn Swagbucks and EARN some Awesome rewards at Swagbucks!

Here's a bit more about Tasks:

"Tasks are an opportunity to do specific actions (called "jobs") and earn Swagbucks based on performance, accuracy and time spent. You can even bank the Swag Bucks you earn from a task if you have to stop in the middle and come back later. Once your task meter is filled up, cash out and watch your Swag Buck total increase!"
Jobs are now structured differently. You will earn credit for every assignment that you complete rather than for every 10 assignments CrowdFlower has implemented several important changes based on your feedback:

Earnings — You can earn payouts in smaller, more exact increments than before. This eliminates long work periods with no earnings payout, and it means you get paid for each task you do. Tasks typically take less than 5 minutes to complete.

Savings — You have a "piggy bank" that will persistently store your earnings. You can stop working or change jobs whenever you want without losing what you earned!

Visibility — You can track your earnings progress and your running accuracy score.

Bonuses — You are now eligible for bonus payouts! Doing good work on certain jobs will lead to bonus payouts.

You can check out the TASKS at Swagbucks HERE
If you have not signed up at Swagbucks you are missing out on some GREAT prizes! My favorite prize is the $5 Amazon gift card for just 450 swagbucks!

ARM & HAMMER™ Simply Saline™ Neti Pot Kit ~ Review

As a member of Smiley360 I get the chance often to try new products! When I was asked if I wanted to review the Arm and Hammer Simply Saline™ Neti Pot Kit I jumped on it quick! With this time of year everyone in the house has some sort of nose problem.  The Arm and Hammer Simply Saline Neti Pot naturally eases nasal dryness and helps clear congestion associated with colds and allergies. The saline solution is made with real Arm and Hammer™ Baking Soda to help prevent stinging and burning. Simply Saline’s pot has a patent pending, leak-proof design to help avoid messy spills.
Simply Saline™ Neti Pot Kit is ideal for flushing out nasal mucus and allergens. Simply Saline™ Neti-Pot solution is made with salt and real ARM & HAMMER® Baking Soda to help prevent burning and stinging.

•Flushes dust and irritants from nasal passages

•Balanced pH regardless of water-type (filtered, distilled, tap water)

•Ergonomic design is comfortable to use and hold

•Cap has a unique, patent-pending venting technology to help with preventing leaks

•Translucent pot with visible fill line aids in preparing correct amount

•Drug-free; use as often as needed

•For use alone or with cold or allergy medicine
Its very easy to use~
1. clean the pot prior to the first use. Fill the Neti pot with warm water to the fill line. That's about 8 oz of water. DO NOT use Hot or boiling water.
2. empty 1 simply saline packet into the neti pot.
tighten the cap and gently shake
3. lean forward over a sink with your head tilted to one side. Open your mouth and apply tip of the neti pot snugly against your nostril.
Allow the solution to gently flow until it starts draining from the opposite nasal passage. Avoid swallowing the solution.
4. gently blow your nose
5. repeat steps 3 and 4 on your other nostril. Discard any remaining unused solution down the sink.
Thoroughly clean after each use and keep clean and free of contamination
place both pot and cap on the top rack of the dishwasher or clean using light soap and running water
air dry
do not use for any other purpose
You can purchase the kit at local drug store for around $12.
I found it very easy to use and my nose felt so much better! I had never used a neti pot before and i will be continuing to use the Arm and Hammer neti pot!

Purex Triple Action Laundry Detergent~ Review

As a member of Purex Insiders I get to try and review new products from Purex from time to time! This time I was sent a FULL size bottle of the New Purex Triple Action Laundry Detergent Free and Clear to try and review!

Purex is rolling out a NEW Triple Action formula across the entire liquid detergent line. This new and improved triple action formula  delivers even better on Purex's promise to leave your clothes bright, white, and clean, and as always, for half the price of leading brands.

Over the past year scientists have been working hard to create an even better Purex formula. Not just a better formula but one that will continue to deliver the value that Purex stands for. The new Triple action formula is just that! Its an even better clean, for half the price of leading brands.

Beginning in early 2012 you can get your own sample to try the New Triple Action Purex.

I love it when I receive full size bottle to review and not those little samples packages that most companies send you that wont even wash a load of clothes! The bottle I received was a full 50 Fl. Oz. of the Free and Clear formula. It is good for 33 loads of laundry!

As soon as the FedEx man dropped it off I knew what is was, I ripped open the box and ran straight to the laundry room! I had load of towels waiting in the washer for the new detergent and I was ready to try it out! I like using towels to test new detergents because if a detergent can clean your towels then its a great detergent!
My towels came out nice and clean. I liked that the towels smelled clean and didn't have the lingering smell of the detergent! note~ I also washed them with snuggle so they were good and soft! You know they are good and clean when the kiddos comment on how clean they are. All 3 of my gang commented that they liked the clean fresh not overpowering smell of their towels!

I like that the New Purex Triple Action is great for all machines including He machines.
The Free and Clear formula is Hypoallergenic for sensitive skin. It has been tested by dermatologists and is 100% free of perfumes and dyes!
I give the new formula a 5 out of 5!
Disclosure~Purex provided a free sample of their Triple Action laundry detergent so I could write a review. However, all of the opinions expressed here in this post are my own.

Renuzit® Fresh Accents Review

As a part of Purex Insiders I was given the chance to sample 2 new scents from Renuzit, the kit also included coupons to share with my family and friends! The scents were Festive Snow and Winter Berry! The Winter Berry smells wonderful! When company came over and mentioned the wonderful cherry smell I gave them a coupon so that they can get one to. I like that the scents have nice holders that fit in with the decor of my home and don't look like the usual air fresheners. I put the cherry one in my living room and the snow scent in the kiddos bathroom. The best part is the fresheners retail for around $2.50 at any store!

Renuzit brand provided free samples of Fresh Accents air freshener so I could review them. However, all of the opinions expressed here are my own.

Natural House Probiotic Cleaning Products Review and Giveaway!(ENDED)

Sponsored by

Natural House cleaning products are a true cleaning revolution!
Why is it a "revolution?" Because Natural House probiotic cleaning products brings you a revolutionary, new method of cleaning the most dirty areas of your home. Utilizing non-toxic, probiotic cleaning agents, Natural House products are strong enough for commercial clean-up, yet safe and gentle for all of the members of your Natural House.
•Our products use an eco-friendly cleaning method of probiotics that create a beneficial, odor eating ecosystem to naturally drive out and digest odors at their source.
•Natural House's plant-based ingredients are eco-friendly, non-toxic and biodegradable to naturally fight the toughest problems you face in your house.
•Our products, Sinky and Flushy even break down and digest fats, oil, grease, and solid waste to ensure your disposal, pipes, drain lines or septic tank run smoothly.
•Our cleaners contain good probiotics which continue to scour, clean, consume odors, grime, grease, and germs, and they continue to do so until your next weekly treatment!
•We earned the coveted Retailers’ Choice Award” at the 2011 National Hardware Show!

So how exactly does probiotic household cleaners work?
•The surfaces in your house are like a garden. If you don’t seed with good plants, weeds will grow. You have the same choice with your household surfaces: sanitize for a moment with harsh chemicals leaving your surface open to recontamination or seed with probiotics to continuously weed out the bad micro-organisms.
•Traditional cleaners “clean” a surface for a moment in time; the second the rag is finished wiping the surface, that surface is almost instantly polluted once again with ambient dust, dirt, and micro-organisms.
•Natural House probiotics creates mini-ecosystem on a microbial level that produces enzymes which break down odors, dirt, fats, oil, grease, food scraps, waste and toilet paper products on a continuous basis between applications. This creates a natural, clean, balanced environment that is safe for even the most sensitive members of your natural house.
•The action is in the foam! When using your Natural House products be sure and let it foam first to release the cleaning agents before going to the next step on the package directions.
The short and skinny of it is this... our natural probiotic cleaners keep on cleaning long after you've stopped!

Please watch this 2 minute video to learn more about how Probiotic cleaners work.

I received a 1 month supply of Natural House Probiotic Cleaning products. Their first three products (Flushy, Trashy, and Sinky)! They were very simple to use!

Flushy  was simple. I just dropped a premeasured package down in  the toilet and let it sit there for a few minutes and foam up and then scrubbed with with the bowl brush and flushed!
The toilets are white as can be!

Trashy was easy and simple to use. Spray Trashy in your trash can and then clean them out. My trash cans now have this clean fresh scent!

Sinky was just as simple to use. I put one in my sink and flushed in down the sink with hot water. My sinks are flowing so much better now!

Not only will every meal be picture-perfect, but you’ll have more time to enjoy your food and spend less time soaking, scrubbing and cleaning in the kitchen. Put your toughest recipes to the test and watch as PAM® comes to the rescue! No matter what meal you’re cooking, PAM® helps you pull it off. Even better.

Check out more about Pam~
PAM® on Facebook
PAM® website
As a member of Smiley360 I received~
•PAM® Cooking Spray – Full Value Voucher (1 full-size can of spray)
•Hunt’s Tomatoes – Full Value Voucher (1 can of tomatoes)
•Pyrex Glass Dish
•Step-by-step Guide for the Ultimate PAM® Challenge
•Smiley360 Sharing Guide

Pyrex and Pam work wonderful together! This mission was the best I have got to try! The Pam was wonderful and my dinners don't stick to the bottom of the Pyrex pan! I have since made enchiladas, lasagna and meat loaf in my Pyrex pan. The spatula allowed everything to come out and serve all the kiddos evenly.
Thanks to Pyrex, Smiley360, Pam and hunts for the FREE items to try and review.

HE Machines - Before each load, add Snuggle® brand liquid fabric softener to the built-in fabric softener tray that is often placed to the right or left of the detergent tray.
As a member of Smiley360 I received
•One (1) 32 ounce Snuggle Exhilarations White Lilac and Spring Flowers™ fabric softener
•The Snuggle Exhilarations White Lilac and Spring Flowers™ Information and Sharing Guide


I have to admit this one was of the best smelling mission I have had the privilege to try! I washed our sheets and blankets more than a week ago and they still smell wonderful and fresh. White Lilac & Spring Flowers™ reminds me of spring time. Its refreshing and light. My towels were light and snuggly and great to touch! I give this product a 5 out of 5. It preforms well and the smell lingers:) Even the kiddos liked the smell and commented about how well their blankets felt and smelled.

Special Thanks to Snuggle and Smiley360 for the FREE bottle to sample and try!

The UGLee Pen is a revolutionary ergonomic pen that is designed, created and used by a real physician. This Doctor-inspired grip pen is redefining the way people view pens and writing.

And for high-school and college students who have to take copious notes, this pen helps keep hands and fingers from cramping.

My Caring Cross ~ Review and Giveaway~ Ended

The Olivewood Cross~
Caring Crosses are individually carved from a single unique piece of beautifully grained olive wood pruned from the olive trees around Bethlehem the birthplace of Jesus. Christians have been carving crosses like this for hundreds of years, originally for pilgrims and more recently tourists visiting the Holy Land. Each craftsman receives a fair price to support their family and Christian community. The Caring Cross is designed to fit comfortably into the palm of your hand as an aid to prayer or meditation. Ideal as your spiritual companion for easing children's fears, comforting worries and stresses of adults and focusing the prayer of the sick and elderly.

Our Mission is to help Christians in Bethlehem~
Issa is a Christian living on the outskirts of Bethlehem and has been carving crosses and religious items his whole life to support his wife and three children. Twenty years ago my mother met Issa on a visit to Bethlehem and began importing his olive wood handicrafts. With the decline in Bethlehem tourism, Issa and other Christian Artisans are struggling. Our aim is to support them by providing a market for olive wood crosses direct to Christians in America.
These crosses are beautifully made!
To order your own there are some great discounts at this time!
1 cross is $8 ($5 plus $3 shipping)
2 crosses are $12 ($9 plus $3 shipping)
Mission Pack is 8 crosses at $40 ($32 plus $8 shipping)

To order at these great prices above go here.
each cross will come with a beautiful velveteen gift bag.

I received a beautiful Caring Cross with a velveteen gift bag. The cross is wonderfully made! The CaringCross is made from genuine olive wood in Bethlehem, the Holy Land. Designed specifically to fit within the contours of your hand they are perfect to hold during prayer or meditation. Caring Crosses make a wonderful gift to say "thanks" or "I care" to your pastors, priests, bible study groups, prayer groups or any family member or friend in need of a little boost in faith.
