Would you like to have a steam cleaner...

I enter only a few giveaways a year, but thanks to an old friend, I have found checking some of the blogs has its advantages. Check out this blog called Thanks, Mail Carrier. It's a nice twist on giveaways because the focus is on items that are delivered to your door. This particular giveaway is for a Bissell Steam and Sweep Hardfloor Cleaner. I would love to have this for my floors because between hubby and my two little ones, I am forever cleaning them!

You can also check it out on Bissell's site:

Do you shop at ACME? (Albertsons)

Customers can purchase gift cards online or in store. No tax form or refund check is necessary, they are simply marketing it during tax refund season. Customers may purchase a grocery store gift card for $250 or $300. Gift cards will be loaded with an additional $20 for a $250 purchase and $30 for a $300 purchase.

I can easily spend $250 in one month, so why not get an extra $20 or $30 groceries for free!

Hurry though...expires April 15th.

I never pay for music downloads..there's always some for free!

Why pay for music downloads when you can find them for free? I often wonder why people pay for them, but I guess it's because they can't find that right song or wait for it. I always can find some free music downloads somewhere, for example, Starbucks has then free every week. Simply get the card from any of their stores. I also can find them on several websites, like the link attached. Enjoy!

The Blog Give-Way Win!

I just wanted to give a shout out to the Reusies people who sent me two reusie bags, which I won on a blog.

This is my first give-away win so I'm just so excited that it was something near and dear to my heart, being GREEN! My husband and I made a promise when our first born came into the world that we would do something meaningful for them. We decided to do something we never did before - recycle! It started with that small step and now we are much more into the "living green" scene! Water rain barrel's, buying "green" when we can, bringing our own shopping bags, green decking out of recycled material, and solar panel's which actually get installed on the house in just three more weeks! I'm soooo excited about that, as our biggest "Green" investment yet!

So thanks Reusies! The bags are cute, fun, and my daughters thought it was way cool when Mommy put their snacks in them today for our outing!

ps - They washed up great in the washer before I used them.
