Illuminate Your Life With The Energizer Solar 9 LED Lantern! @HomeSafTMatters #Ad

*This post was written by me on behalf of Home Safety Matters.  I received a product sample to review.  All opinions are 100% mine.     One of the things that has always been a problem in the front of my house is the lighting.  We had to upgrade and completely revamp the entire electrical of our home when we first purchased it but we have not been able to update the lighting in the front yard.  The only thing out front is a motion sensor light above the front door which works when it wants to.  This means that we are always looking for creative ways to have light out there when we are sitting out during the warm months.     I was very excited to have the opportunity to review the Energizer® Solar™ 9 LED Lantern from Home Safety Matters.  They pride themselves on offering parents the products that they need to keep their homes safe.  This particular product definitely falls into this category because it safely lights up any space or gathering and is not hot to the touch for big … [Read more...]

Experience The Freshness of Purex Softener Sheets! #PurexInsider #Giveaway

*This post was written by me on behalf of Purex.  As a Purex Insider I receive samples of products to review.  All opinions are 100% mine.     If you have been following this blog for a long time, you know that I have a love/hate relationship with doing laundry.  I love having clean and fresh smelling clothes but I hate having to slave in the laundry room for hours on end.  I'm constantly on the lookout for laundry products that will make my life easier and keep my clothes fresh and clean.  Price is also a deciding factor because, let's face it, most of us are on a budget and want to get the best value for our money.     Purex Fabric Softener Dryer Sheets meet all of this criteria for me because they do a great job keeping our laundry soft and smelling fresh.  I also love that using them helps to decrease static cling on our clothes out of the dryer.  Also, since we have a beautiful but extremely hairy Labrador mix dog, it helps a lot that that they repel pet hair and lint on all … [Read more...]

Attack The Source With New Combat Ant Killing Bait Strips #PurexInsiders

*This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Combat as a Purex Insider. All opinions are 100% mine.     We have been lucky not to have many problems with pests and vermin where we live, however, whenever the weather gets warm we get a visit from some unwelcome visitors.  We usually begin to see the ants in our front yard traveling back and forth from their colony with food and, eventually, they always make their way inside the foyer where we find the occasional stragglers.      As a kid, I can remember my parents using Combat Baits and Gels to deal with roaches when we lived in apartment buildings.  It is a brand that has been trusted by my family for years so I was very excited to have the opportunity to review new Combat Ant Killing Bait Strips.     They have the same killing power found in Combat Gels and are available in a new discreet design that contains an adhesive backing that makes it easier than ever to hide them out of sight and our of the reach of children … [Read more...]

Grout Got You Down? #PurexInsiders

*This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Soft Scrub as a Purex Insider. All opinions are 100% mine.     I can't stand a dirty bathroom and, as a result, I find myself constantly cleaning it so that it is sanitary for my family.  Since it's probably the most used room in the house, it definitely gets dirty quickly and it's important to keep up with cleaning grout, mold and mildew.  New Soft Scrub Mold and Mildew Stain Remover comes in a gentle solution that will tackle all of the mold and mildew stains in your home.     It is a a spray gel that has the unique ability to be extra tough on stains while, at the same time, gentle on all of your surfaces.  It's different from other spray and bleach cleaners because it does not permeate your home with harmful bleach vapors.  Since it is a thick gel, it clings to your bathroom surfaces and penetrates tough stains without filling it up with fumes or clogging the air with overspray.     I love that it is multi-purpose and … [Read more...]

Soft Scrub 4 In 1 Toilet Care Helps You Stop Scrubbing! #Purex

This post is written by me on behalf of Soft Scrub. I received a product sample to review. All opinions are 100% mine.     You guys have no idea how much time I spend cleaning the bathroom, especially living in a house full of men!  Every single time I turn around I am down on my knees cleaning the floor around the toilet, scrubbing the sink and tub, and picking up bath toys.  Unfortunately, the bathroom is the one room in the house that gets dirty fairly quickly due to being in constant use.     In the past I've tried out various cleaners to try to keep the toilet bowl fresh in between major bathroom cleanings.  The purpose of this was not only good hygiene but also that I got tired of constantly having to scrub the toilet all the time to keep the bowl clean and odor-free.  Most of the products I used in the past either dissolved too quickly due to frequent flushing or stopped smelling good after a few uses.  At the end of the day, I found myself right back where I originally … [Read more...]

Make Bath Time Fun With Dial Kids Body And Hair Wash!

    When it comes to our children, we parents always want to buy the most trusted products especially when those products are coming in contact with their delicate skin.  The Dial Brand has been creating personal care products for 65 years and now they are introducing their kids' line of products.  They understand the importance of offering body and hair wash that address the gentle and unique needs of children's skin.     My seven year old son has extremely sensitive skin and it's an issue that I have discussed on this blog numerous times.  When he was an infant, he developed eczema on his face and me had to have him treated by a pediatric dermatologist.  As a result, we have always been mindful of the types of personal hygiene and body wash products that we have exposed him to.     I immediately knew that the Dial Kids Body and Hair Wash for kids ages 2+ would be perfect for him because it is designed for the needs of children who have outgrown baby soaps but are not ready for … [Read more...]

Let #AngelSoft Create Balance In Your Household!

    When I tell you that I am a very busy mom, I am not exaggerating.  Most days I am all over the place trying to juggle all of my roles and hoping to get everything accomplished.  Between managing a full-time career as an educator, running a household, parenting my two boys, and keeping my husband happy, I barely have a second to myself.     During the day, you can find me grading papers during my preparatory periods and working through my lunch.  Once I punch out at my day job, I come home to start all over again with supervising homework, making dinner, doing laundry, and cleaning the house.  I generally don't go to sleep until well past midnight, even on weekdays.  For all of these reasons and more, I look for products to use in our home that aren't going to add to my already heavy workload.     My goal is to make every shopping trip or household task as quick and easy as possible at all times.  Why is this so important, you ask?  At the end of the day, the most important … [Read more...]

Purex With Crystals Fragrance #PurexInsiders

    I cannot even begin to tell you how much money I spend on detergent and fabric softener in order to wash the laundry that our family of four makes on a regular basis.  Never mind the fact that both of our boys are involved in sports like basketball and baseball weekly because that also contributes a ton of dirty uniforms and clothes to our laundry pile.  That's why it is really important that we use laundry detergents that not only do a great job getting our clothes clean but also don't put a big dent in our household budget.     As a Purex Insider, I am ecstatic to bring you the news that new Purex plus Fabric Softener with Crystals Fragrance combines the aromatic fragrance of Purex Crystals with the highly effective Purex detergent.  It can be used to wash your laundry every single day and brings the fresh scents of clean laundry and florals to every load that you wash.  If you use it in conjunction with Purex Crystals, it will give your clean clothes an even longer lasting … [Read more...]
