Pizza Rally On Facebook For (Freschetta Pizza) I'm In!

1. LIKE Freschetta® on Facebook and add your photo to the Rally Mosaic: www.facebook.com/freschettapizza

Have you heard about the Freschetta® Rally for Real Pizza campaign on
Facebook? It's pretty nifty and you might win free pizza's by participating
which I am trying to do right now. They are looking for the first 100
bloggers to write about them and like them on facebook.

Frozen pizza to me tastes sometimes as good as delivered pizza does.
That's because they use fresh ingredients and flash freeze them so they
are at the peak of their freshness cycle. It's a smart way to get
great taste with no extra effort. Freschetta®frozen pizzas are made
with top-quality ingredients and taste-tested recipes, just to make sure your pizza will always deliver Fresch® flavor. I think they are really tasty
and we often serve frozen pizza's.

Facebook Freschetta Pizza
Each week we will select 100 winners -- to each receive 5 Freschetta® Pizzas. On March 30, we will also select 10 winners - who will each receive Freschetta® Pizza for a year!

DISCLOSER: "I occasionally receive compensation in the form of products for posts. However, the opinions I share are solely my own." This however, is a contest. I will receive compensation only if I am one of the first 100 bloggers to post this information which I hate for company's to do!

MICKEY MOUSE CLUBHOUSE: I HEART MINNIE Love Birthday's
Now Available on Dvd & Digital It's A Party!



Are you planning on getting this new dvd
for your kid's collection? I'm talking of course about the newly released (Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: I Heart Minnie), from
Disney!
It has five huge episodes included so it's like 5 movies in 1
so a good money saving option for all of us
mom and dads who are trying to save cash. This
romantic touched reel also has unique bonus features like; “You’re Invited to Minnie’s Birthday Party!”
(2) Best Friend necklaces are also
included with this dvd so that's a cute little
incentive for your daughter and her best
friend. I know how much little girls love
those sparkly jewelry items. You can never
have too many of those. This would make an
awesome Easter Day gift to put in her basket.
As soon as we watched these Elizabeth was happily busy drawing out her own birthday celebration plans up which doesn't come around until June. She wants it fixed up just like Minnie's with all of the pinks and purple's and balloons.

This charming film is also available by
digital download which I know many millions of
moms appreciate the convenience of. I'm
probably the last person on the planet to not
own a cellphone so i'll have to wait on that
part of it. As long as I have my dvds to watch
I'm a happy camper and my kids take after me.
They adore movies of every kind and this one
is something special for your little one.

From Disney:

"The Digital Copy Allows Parents To Easily,
Quickly Download The Episodes Onto A
ComputerOr Secondary Handheld Device For
On-The-Go Access"

If you're wondering who is going to be
attending this Minnie Mouse party I'll let you
in on a secret. It's got the whole Clubhouse
gang!

Daisy
Mickey Mouse
Donald Duck
Goofy

Episode List:
Minnie’s Rainbow
Daisy’s Pet Project
Daisy’s Dance
Minnie’s Birthday
Minnie & Daisy’s Flower Shower

These are really some cute and educational episodes. They will certainly help your children with any questions they might have concerning friendship and getting along with others. They show many examples of working alongside someone else so that comradery is always present. Cute songs and verses in these movies. Being part of a team is important to Mickey and Minnie so they make sure your kids understand that too. Dedication to each other and humble simple problem solving will also come into play. The ability to share with others is vital so I would say that's the key point kids will tke away from these colorful episodes. They are not too long, more like just the right length to hold your kids attention.
My personal favorite was the Minnie's Rainbow.
I've never found a rainbow I didn't love they are the most magical things that can be. Plus it was fun watching her search for her Pot of Gold. Don't we all wish we could find one of those gems? So get this special feature and sit
down and enjoy it with your kids. Put your feet up and just relax
and remember when you were a child planning for your own Birthday Party.
I think I'm going to go bake a cake, this has made me want a slice
of vanilla cake with buttercream frosting.

Have An Organized Decorative Home With Wall Art Stickers Kids Growth Charts From Bright Star Kids Online Store






Photos courtesy of Bright Star Kids

New 2012 Consumer Product Review * Bright Star Kids * Wall Art
Stickers Labels Name & Growth Charts Colorful Fun Designs!




I've been looking around online peeking in at some of the
stores again. I know window shopping is my passion so it's great
to have so many online avenues available now thru the technology
and wonder of the Internet. One such place I've come across is
Bright Star Kids
wall art. They feature a ton of designs by way of wall stickers to brighten
up any room in your house. I was clicking around on their website
and saw things for boy's, girl's and grownup's too. Bright STar Kids
has baby names stickers too wouldn't that make for an impressive
baby shower gift for a new mom? Some other items you can find there
are:

Name Labels
Address Labels
Wall Art
Canvas Art
Growth Charts
Bag Tags
Gifts for everyone
chalkboards

They also have party plans available, you know like
having a Tupperware party. That's
right you can host an in home party and
decorate your wall with your friends and kids.
How fun would that be? I thought it sounded
pretty clever myself. I would think kids would
love sticking wall stickers on the wall and
decorating rooms. I noticed they have discounted shipping
available which is always great. Another thing
I liked about them is besides accepting major
credit cards, you can use your paypal account
to pay for your purchases. I really like being
able to use paypal when I can online. It's so
much easier than the other methods.

My favorite design would be the room size Christmas Tree wall
stickers for $89.00. My kids threw out my old artificial Christmas
Tree last year so this year I'm going to have to go tree shopping
all over again. Ok, I'll admit I'd had that same old tree for over
25 years but still. Maybe I should have just gotten one of these
super rainbow colored Christmas Tree
Wall Decals instead for 2012.
That would be a shocker for those wise guy's for tossing
out my tree without even asking me first! What do you think?
Do you use wall decals and stickers in your home for decorating
rooms?

* 2011 Book Review Cookbook * The Gluten Free Fat Loss
Plan *Diabetic Friendly



Easy Comfort Food Recipes With A Healthy Twist

I've been reading another gluten free cookbook
lately that has really opened my eyes up to this way
of cooking, the healthy way. This book is called
The Gluten Free Fat Loss Plan With Exercises!
It's written by Allison Westfahl, Fitness Expert & Author
has so many suggestions for making your meals healthier
that I really enjoyed it. I know you will enjoy it
as much as I have if you just give it a chance
in your busy day. The photographs are great and will
make you hungry for a hot comforting dish so be prepared
with a light healthy snack while you read it over. Because
I don't know about you, but nothing makes me starving
more than a good cooking book.

There are many good easy to prepare recipes inside the covers
of this cookbook so you will have a lot of fun creating these
since they won't make you feel guilty eating them.
I love the variety packed into this book. and it's nice
to know that every choice in it is a gluten free solution
to help you lose weight.

Each recipe points out the importance of using fresh produce
and vegetables which will make a world of difference in your
meal's overall taste. There is no substitution for that.
So even if you are not living a gluten free lifestyle yet,
this book will have some refreshing new dishes for you
to try out on your family. They won't even need to know
they are eating something healthy unless you decide to tell them.
There are several family favorites included so something
for everyone. Since I have type 2 diabetes, trying to
eat more gluten free is important to me but it really is
beneficial for everyone's personal health. So make some
dishes that you love and are better for you than your old
classics it's time for an improvement in your kitchen. Making
small changes to gluten free wholesome goodness will help your
family out in a big way.
I would recommend this book and dvd set and I think it's loaded
with good recipes and fun.

Napping In A Light Room Is Impossible Cleaning House While Asleep Also Not Likely







Have you ever wished you'd go take a nap and while you were sleeping
would come
in and clean your entire house for you?
Maid Service Fairfax Va
I would love something like
that it would be the pinnacle of laziness on my part but hey I'd still
love it. Maybe I watch too much Fringe.
Do you ever have trouble falling asleep because your room is not dark enough? I have this problem a lot but I may have found a neat solution for it. I used a cooling eye pillow mask to help this problem.
I've used it a few times now and it works to help me fall asleep faster.
It also is scented with lavender which is one of my favorite fragrances.
The pillow does rest your eyes and it makes you feel like you're at a spa retreat just relaxing without a care in the world. That's probably because it feels so silky against your skin, like a celebrity. I'm on the computer a lot so I need some resting time for my eyes. I often just stop and take blinking breaks because new studies are showing that people who work at the computer all day are not doing enough of that.
I think it's
a pretty neat item to have around. My bedroom gets so much light thru the windoes even though I have mini-blinds up and curtains. The sun is constantly annoying me when I go in there to try to take a nap. Yes I'll admit it, I do take
an occasional nap to regain my focus sometimes. I don't think there is
anything wrong with that.

Kardea Nutrition Bars Healthy Wholesome Snacks That Are Chew Delicious & Lowfat



Photos courtesy of Kardea Nutrition

Kardea Nutrition Bars Keep Me Focused Tasty Snacks
Healthy Low Calorie & Diabetic Friendly



Kardea Nutristion
makes a wonderful natural snack bar that
really is a good snack choice for the
diabetic lifestyle I live. You don't have to be
suffering with type 2 diabetes to enjoy them which
makes it really nice.

They are a wholesome
healthy snack choice for everyone whether you
have diabetes or not. Kids love eating them
and they are a good choice for them too.
They are one of the best
tasting bars I've come across and chock full
of goodies in every morsel. Being a type 2 diabetic,
I have tried a whole lot of so called "healthy" bars
and some of them just don't hold a candle to
Kardea's for nutrition values and especially for
the flavor.

Since I am
trying to be more active in 2012 like everyone in
America, Kardea's Bars
give me the instant energy I need when I need
it most. They also save some of that special
energy for later so it helps me in two ways
instead of one. With diabetes keeping your mind focused
is a big problem so i need to eat every 3 hours
in order to keep my brain focused and alert. Bars like
these are a big help to do just that.

What's the first thing you look for in a lower caloire
healthy snack? I bet it's any one of these below.
Well guess what? Kardea has ALL of them included
in their bars!

Kardea Offers:

low sodium
vegan
high protein
high fiber
no trans fats
low saturated fats

You can tell they use the freshest fruits and
dried fruits and spices because the flavors come bursting
out at you in each bite so nothing artificial
and certainly no chemical after-tastes. They are
founded in Canada and they are a heart healthy
product made for everyone.
Being heart healthy is good for us all but
especially for a diabetic or someone trying to
be healthier in the new year.

Kardea Flavors:

cranberry almond
chai spice
banana nut
lemon ginger
spice blends

I'm so glad about the chewy taste of them most of
all but they also have many major health
benefits packed into these scrumptious bars
with 5 heart health nutrients included inside
each one.
Kardea has published new books and helpful
nutritional reports that are showing new ways
of getting your needed nutrients into your
body every day.

Books-Reports:

1.The
Kardea Gourmet:
: Smart & Delicious Eating
for a Health Heart

2. Mediterranean Spice Blends: The Secret
Ingredients of a Heart Healthy Diet

3. Good Fat or Low Fat: What’s Right for
Health and Weight Loss

So as you can see, they have been very busy
researching, testing and creating this health
information for us all to use and enjoy.
With diabetes, it's important to have 6 or 7
good wholesome snacks every day in order to
maintain your blood sugar levels. Eating one
of these bars before bedtime will help
regulate blood sugar through the night plus it
tastes great so it's a welcome addition to my
diabetic meal plan.
Another good way to eat these nutritious bars
is by eating them to help manage your
cholesterol levels. You could eat up to 2 of
them a day for that which I need to do since
my count on that is also high according to my
doctor. I hope you'll go visit Kardea and give
them a try so you can join me in these new guilt-free
pleasures of snacking.

Lady & The Tramp Dvd Review Diamond
Edition Is Now Out on Blu-ray!






Being a movie and Films Collector Of
Classic Disney
animation, this title was an easy choice
for me. Have I said how much I love my job that's
not really a job?
Disney's remake of the 1955 movie so
kids all over the Country will know every
little detail about this movie while they are
watching it. So there will probably be
questions since all good films get tons of
curious questions from small children,right?
I know all of the ones that hang around here
are curious little devils who love to watch a
movie and discuss it. It's like they are in
training for a future talk show of their own.
I'm telling you, these small children know
where the action is and what's going on. Don't
let them fool you for a minute because they
have movie watching down to a science.

I am glad that this blu-ray video Is In it's
OAR of 2:35:1 cinemascope for the best results
possible in the entertainment World. For all
you dvd lover's it's also good on that format.
This film
is also enhanced for 16:9 TV ratio so it's
suitable for all television screens. I want
the best quality and I want the OAR shown in
theaters and that is what this classic blu-ray
includes for your enjoyment.
I had not seen this
Disney Movie
in many years so
when I received this, I was excited to see it
again and to share it for the first time with
my little ones. The Blu-ray version of this
movie was simply remarkable and brillantly
made. The vivid colors and crisp clear sounds
just jump off the screen at you. With it's
captivating allure it's so easy for you to get
drawn into the romantic love story which is
only, Lady and the Tramp. On top of a great
storyline there is also some great song
choices shared. Children's happy songs are like
a hidden gem within the film like something
unexpected like the Siamese Cat Song, it's
priceless and the kids are still singing it
every day since watching it.

With talent such as Peggy Lee, you can see
that Disney is being successful in luring
youngsters in with this. If you haven't ever
watched Lady and the Tramp with your kids I
would highly recommend you do that.
Introducing your kids to classics that you
loved as a child is an excellent way to bond
with your kids.
Disney continues making great family friendly
films and having this be with Diamond Edition
blu-ray is even better. Elizabeth decided that
her favorite part of the movie was when Lady
chases the rat out of the yard,she's a lot
like me and is scared to death of a rat, The
overall picture lines are super crisp on this
blu-ray. The colors are vibrant and shout out
at you letting you easily soak them in. The
wider aspect-ratio lets you see special things
that usually only the film making crew gets to
see. I know I keep saying it but With the
blu-ray format, you get a dazzling picture and
more of that astonishing picture to love. I
wish you could watch it side by side on 2
tv's, one with blu-ray and one without so you
could see what I'm talking about. It's hard to
explain but the quality of picture is much
better. Lady and the Tramp is one of the
reasons Disney's great animation and
storytelling still exist today. It's movies
like this that have made Walt Disney and the
amazing team of animators so legendary.
Afterall it's a household name in every
household all over the World.

Disney has done an excellent job of
transferring this classic into a picture they
can be proud to be a part of for another 50
years. There are a few spots where you can
hear the hiss when there is no music but it's
not a big deal. Your kids will love seeing a
fun adventure like this with you so be sure
and tell them it was what you watched when you
were a small child too. I think young kids get
a kick out of that, doing something mom or dad
already has done. Only you will know it's even
better than it was before because it's in Hi-Definition.

to good use to help other bloggers who may not know

as much as you do about the blogworld. Give your

viewpoints objectively.

2.Offer to maternity sit someone's blog. Meaning that

for a given amount of time say 7 weeks (last week

before birth & 6 weeks after birth),you would post

twice weekly on family friendly topics so the new

bloggy mother doesn't have to worry about her blog

drying up. I think a low price for something like

this would be in the $50.00 or
less range. Sure it may be low for the writer but you

will
get lots of recognition & traffic back to your blog

too since you'll of course include the link to your

blog in each post. Besides she has a newborn in the

house who has
money after that? Decide together on an amount that

would make you both happy and content.

3.Start up your own paid blogging class. You can set

it up easily thru
href="http://www.paypal.com/">Paypal
and earn a

little money emailing your smarts to your customers

who ask to be signed up for it. Maybe you offer
a 30 day better blog email structure for $20.00. It

doesn't sound like a lot but if you get 9 or 10

takers
it will look a lot better to you.

4.Start a Newbie To Blogging paid subscription group.
You know a beginner blogging class. There are many

new bloggers who have a lot of questions.
Just because you've been there and done that doesn't

mean
every one else has. Charge a small fee for the

subscription that you also can set up with paypal.

5.Write an ebook and charge for it with all of your

blogging tips and tricks,hints and ideas. There are

free
programs to help you create a free to make ebook just
google it. It will be a lot easier than you think I

bet
to put all of your ideas in print.

6.Create Button Html Code Boxes for fellow

bloggers.It's easy to learn to do with instructions

located here;

href="http://www.blogguidebook.com/2010/10/how-to-add

-button-code-and-code-box-to.html">Button Code How

To
Some bloggers would be very happy to pay

$5-10.00 just to have this done for them so everyone

can grab their button in an instant giving them an

always needed backlink.

7.Do Vacation Blog Postings for other bloggers. If

you put a blurb on your blog saying you are willing

to do this,beleive me someone will contact you. All

you'll be
doing is agreeing to write full blog posts for the

duration of the blog owner's vacation. Could be a few

days or weeks. Discuss your expectations in price and

go for it.

8. Take photos using your digital camera and upload

them to
href="http://www.istockphoto.com/">IStockphoto

to make a little extra cash. Every time your picture

is
used you make a few cents it adds up over time.

9.If you know how to do basic blogging web design you can earn all kinds of money you lucky thing. There are all types of ideas on this design blog about that.

10.Start a blogger outreach program to get more free products for yourself and to help other bloggers
find more products for reviews and giveaways. Yes I know you could charge a small fee but I really would love it if everyone would make it be free! I'm on a limited budget so free is the only possibility I have available.

There I hope you are enjoying this new blogging tips series. Have any tips I'd like to hear them? You can also write a guest post I'm happy to accept guest
blogging posts all of the time. Less work for me. :)

List Of 35 Top Money Saving Tips To Slim Down Your Budget, Save Your Family Money Every Day Essential Expenses






How to Save Money on Your Household Budget With
Little Effort From You




Cutting your household budget is a hard thing to do.
No matter what your budget allows for it seems with
prices rising as they are it's never enough.
Here's some time tested true classic tips to help
you save money on your household expenses
without breaking the bank or taking out a
loan on your mortgage.

1. Buy Store Brand NonStick Cooking Spray

These spray cans of cooking oils have turned out to be a
great economical convenience for me. At first we started
using them because they were easy but I've noticed now we
buy a ton less of cooking oils by using these. Buy canola
oil, vegetable oil,olive oil and butter flavored oils in
the spray cans. Take the tops off them & toss those
because they are way too hard to get off when you're
trying to cook, I wish manufacturers would make them
easier to remove. Put them near your stove out in plain
view so you will reach for them all the time. You can use
these just about anywhere you use the actual cooking
oils.You'll save money & calories both without any effort.
Even though I'm a huge coupon user/fan I say store brand
on this product because even with a coupon doubled you
have to pay way too much for the name brand ones. I've
tried them all & you can't tell the difference in the
store brands so go ahead and
get it.

2. Cut back on All Pepsi,Coke & Other Soda Pop

intake For Everyone
Yes, I know we just have to have it here too. I'm a big
pepsi fan myself. But at $8.50 a case it's just gotten out
of hand. That's ridiculous to pay for so have everyone in
the house figure out just how much soda pop is being
consumed at your house and agree to cut it in half if
possible. Have everyone start drinking more bottled water
since it's better for you anyway. Try making some 2 quart
pitchers of Kool-aid again. That's right Kool-aid, use 1/4
cup less sugar than called for in the recipe as it makes
it taste better & will not be so sweet making it a little
healthier for you. Actually I now make my kool-aid with
Splenda since there is no aftertaste so there's no
calories involved at all. I use kroger's brand of splenda
store brand is what I'm saying it's much cheaper.

3. Start double cooking the quantity of your meals
eating leftovers; Don't freeze them
Cook some meals in double size portions & make everyone
actually have leftovers the next day. It can either be the same
meal eaten again or be creative & turn the leftovers into
a totally different meal the 2nd time around. My family
won't eat anything leftover from the freezer so I can't
recommend stocking up the freezer with precooked meals. I
say cook the double batch & eat it twice that same week.
Don't bother to go to all the trouble of freezing it.

4. Drink Ice Cold Tap Water At The Dinner Table Nightly

This is a great new resolution to start. Water is so much
healthier for us than anything else. It also helps fill
you up when you think you're hungry. Everyone in the
family can be better served by boosting their water intake
a little. Hey, you might actually like it and you're
already paying for it. You're paying for your tap water
on a montly basis aka water bill, so you should be
drinking it.

5. Fix Up Some Premade Food Snacks For Hungry Times

Grab those ziploc (store brand), snack size bags or
baggies & grab all the snacks in the house down from the
cabinets & the pantry. Look on the nutrition labels of
each one & put single serving sizes of them into each
baggie. Put them in a huge basket & leave them there.
Anyone running out can grab one to eat on their way to
somewhere without stopping at a fast food drive thru and
spending more money. Besides,
you'll be amazed at what an actual serving size is for
most foods especially snacks. Make the family eat these
first before clearing out the cabinets.
People at home will definitely grab one of the snack bags
whenever they want a snack. I guarantee you the snack
baggies are smaller amounts of anything your family's been
eating on a regular basis.
There's a huge difference in grabbing a new bag of chips &
finishing off half the bag & eating a correct serving of
say 10 Chips. It's enough to cure their hunger pains or
their cravings and you'll save a lot of money in the long
run. Don't overstuff any of the baggies. Put exactly one
serving size in each one. If you have tiny children at
home you can make up special ones for them with probably
half of a serving.

6. Make your 100% Juices go further by watering them down

just a little. Take your big bottle of juice & pour
2 cups into a 2qt pitcher. Fill the rest up with water.
Over ice this will be a nice refreshing drink. It will be
lightly flavored of the juice & will be much healthier.
Since you'll mainly be drinking water you'll save a ton of
money everytime you do this. No one needs to chug down
straight shots of expensive juice all the time.
7. Go out to your laundry room & get out all the dryer
sheet boxes you have. Take them to your kitchen & using
your kitchen shears, cut by the stacks full all of them in
half. Dryer loads come out just as good with a half of a
static sheet rather than a whole one. They charge way too
much money for those. I only buy the store brand unscented
ones for us which will save you about $50 a year.

8. Buy flat textured surface hand towels to use as
table napkins

Start setting everyone's place setting with
a folded cloth napkin. You'll save a ton of money by not
buying as many paper napkins. Since they cost about $4.00
for 100 of them & the average person eating a meal uses at
least 3 figure that out. Your saving big bucks.

9. Stop buying Hostess or other expensive overpriced
cupcakes

They are way overpriced & they are not even a bit good for you. You can do better at such a cost difference.Make some
cupcakes of your own every week & have them out in the
cake taker for everyone to snack on or for dessert. Leave
them plain or dust them with powdered sugar or cool whip.
If you really want the twinkie or cupcake taste squire
some cool whip inside of your finished cake from the
bottom & then frost with frosting. The box of cake mix can
be bought for sometimes 88cents & it makes 24 cupcakes.
The Hostess ones are about $5.50 a box or more & you only
get 8 of them! As long as you make cupcakes once every
couple of weeks no one will miss the Hostess goodies.

10. Stop eating out!
Make eating out a once a month
thing or less. That's right once a month. If you write down
how much your family is spending on eating out you might
have a heart attack reading the numbers.

11. Pack a lunch or a good healthy snack
Or skip lunch altogether & just have a healthy
snack everyday at lunchtime.

12. For Spaghetti meals that use 1lb of ground beef cut it
down to 1/2 lb

but chop the meat finer. No one will miss
the other 1/2 lb of meat and you'll save a lot of money.
Plus the meal will be so much better for you.

13. Make your own garlic bread, garlic toast

It's super
simple & much
cheaper. Fix up a whole loaf at a time & freeze them. Look
at that, the next time you use just 6 slices of those you
saved about $6.50.

14. Make your own french fries

When you buy a bag of
french fries did you know that in that bag is actually 1
or 2 potatoes? That's right you just paid $3.79 for 2
potatoes. Buy a whole bag of potatoes for $5.00 & fix 2 of
them yourself into fries or baked fries.

15. Get all your fruits & vegetables at your local farmer's
market

You'll save lots of cash & they will be fresher.

16. Every 2 or 3 days check your fridge for possible
leftovers that are in there covered in foil

Add them to
the next meal in some way or decide that this is the next
day's lunch for yourself. You bought it so don't waste it.

17. Start keeping Jell-0 (store brand) in the fridge ALWAYS
Make up a couple of boxes at one time & put them into
individual serving size dishes. Everyone loves jell-o &
it's cheap. Add fruit if you'd like or dress it up with
cool whip topping. People are basically lazy. But if they
open the fridge & spot something already in a dish just
for them, they'll eat it.
I keep sugar free jell-o in the fridge at all times. That
with a dab of fat free cool whip is the perfect snack and
it's only 10 calories!

18. Make your own cool whip topping
Look up a recipe but
all it is is whipped cream. Buy cans of evaporated skim
milk & put them in the fridge to use just for making your
own cool whip. You don't have to buy real whipping cream,
as long as you have the evaporated milk really cold, it
will give the same result. Add a tablespoon of sugar and a
bit of vanilla extract and it's heavenly whipped topping.

19. Start making pudding for desserts
It's very economical
& everyone will love it. Do it like the jell-o, put it in
individual 1/2 cup dishes. You can make your own even
cheaper than buying the boxed type. I'm a huge chocolate
pudding fan and it will make you feel like you've just had
the best most decadent candy bar with over 300 caloires,
while in reality you're satisfied and only about 100
calories!

20. If you smoke quit
Figure out how much money you spend
on smoking everyday, be honest here. Take that amount of
money & put it in your pocket, just a day's worth. Now
everyday when you want a cigarette pull that money out of
your pocket & leave it in front of you for the rest of the
day. Everytime you get the urge to smoke pull it back out
of your pocket as needed.

21. Plan your meals around your weekly sale ad using a list
& a menu


Also match up your coupons to all items that you
can. Use your store shopping card. Go online & add your
card to their site usually it will preload coupons onto it
too.

22. Buy only generic prescription drugs
Use a pharmacy
coupon. Most pharmacies now will let you use a
competitor's coupon which is great. I have over $200 of
free gift cards right now just by using a competitor's
coupon everytime I fill a prescription. I plan on using
the free money for buying grocery items that they have in
their stores which is quite a few things.

23. Look over your pantry stockpile often to use up things
that have been sitting out there

It's not a
savings if you buy it but don't ever use it. It's just a
waste of money if you let it expire. Use it up cook
something in a new way and just try it out. Have a
sampling night and cook some pantry stapes that've been
in their awhile. Everyone will love trying a bit of this
and a little of that for dinner. It will be like you are
at your favorite family buffet.

24. Make up some homemade trail mixes
with all your pantry
goodies. Use those extra bits of cereals no one is eating
& mix & match. You can find many recipes for these mixes
online. Fix them up & make the little snack bags with
them. These are very good for you and so easy to assemble.

25. Only buy your loaves of bread
at the bread thrift
stores. We have a hostess one in our area but there are
many other's. Freeze the bread so you always have it on
hand. Also, you can use your bread machine to make your
own cheaper breads more on that below.

26. Pull out your bread machine again
& start using it.
Remember you can make your own pizza crusts,dinner
rolls,bagels,huge soft pretzels,french bread,italian
bread,cinnambon buns,doughnuts,buns.... with it. Use it to
save at least $20 every week on your baked goods.
It's amazing what a bit of flour can make.
29.Stop buying pre made pie crusts, biscuits. Make your
own.

27. Buy the milk that's on sale each week
By that I mean
pay attention to the ads. If the half gallon jugs are on
sale one week don't buy the gallon sized ones. I see many
people at the grocery store just grab some milk not even
noticing they just paid $5 for a gallon when they could
have bought 2 half gallons for $2.50 total! That's one of
my pet peeves,sorry. We use about 6-7 gallons a week so I
do pay attention closely to which milk we buy.

28. Pull out your spices often
Use some that you don't use
all the time every once in awhile to change a dish up just
a bit. Put them to use, you bought them so use them. Try
a new flavor every week you might enjoy it.

29. Buy Kosher salt in the big box instead of the table
salt in the little cartons


Sure kosher salt is about $6
but it will equal about 14 of those little round blue
containers that are now up to $2 each.

30. Stop buying tv guide every week
out of habit! Find out
if anyone is still actually using it at your house. If
they are search online for free tv guide. Usually all the
time you can find a free 1 yr. subscription for it
somewhere. Fill it out & once you start getting it stop
buying it. With all the features now on home dvr's I doubt
anyone is even still reading the tv guide.

31. Still buying Woman's Day & Family Circle
every month at
the checkout? Stop buying it, break the habit cycle. You
can read both of them & hundreds of complete magazines
online for free. Save that money for more food items. Just
search for your favorite
magazines online thru google.

32. Buy eggs in the 2&1/2 dozen medium sized cartons

instead of the 2 large egg cartons every week. It's much
more economical & they last an entire month or more. You
don't need to buy eggs every week that way.

33. Join Sam's Club
buy some of your goods there. Sure,
not everything is cheaper but quite a few things are. We
always buy our Kraft Parmesan cheese there in the huge
bottle instead of those expensive little green cans at the
market. Fruits are much fresher there too than our local
Kroger. Take your calculator with you & do the unit price
math on some of the items to determine the best price. If
you can get it cheaper elsewhere, don't buy it.
This especially true of pepsi & coke products at
Sam's---Don't buy them there they are overpriced! Do
your shopping homework and you can get some good bulk
purchasing deals at Sam's Club.

34. If your family uses the little paper cups
in the
bathroom everyday buy them at Sam's Club instead. You get
600 of them for about $7 instead of paying $4.75 for 80 of
them at the grocery store. This is a big Savings so only
buy these at Sam's. Now tell everyone they are limited to
1 tiny cup in the bathroom per day. I know it sounds mean
but seriously my son can go thru 8 of them in a day
himself! Have them turn theirs upside down & place it over
their standing toothbrush. It's right there in their site
& no confusion about whose it is. If they don't want to do
that make them use a marker for their
intial so they limit themselves to one cup a day. They'll
get used to it and you won't constantly be running out of
those little cups.

35. It's actually cheaper to buy canned green beans
at the
store than fresh. I know odd but true. If you cook up a
few cans at at ime in your crockpot with a couple of
chicken boullion cubes they will taste more like fresh
greenbeans. I keep a crockpot of them all the time in the
fridge for some healthy side dishes for me.

I hope from all these tips you walk away with a little
more knowledge about ways you can save extra money everyday
for your family with just a little bit of practice.

If none of these tips work for you and all else fails you can go
get yourself a
Recession Loan
to help you out.

2012 New Glade Expressions Exotic Home Fragrance Mist & Oil Diffuser House Party Tips

Glade Expressions 2012 House Party Exotic
Fragrances For Every Room, Any Special Occasion
Home Decorating Tips For 2012




I recently had another one of my favorite get
togethers with family and friends. We were
trying out a new fragrance product for the
home from
Glade Expressions!
and we all had a wonderful time doing it plus the house
smelled terrific. Everyone had items to take home so
they could buy some products at a discount and some party
favors which we always love to receive.

Glade sent a lot of cute magnets shaped like
a house but they were photo type frames and
lots of money saving coupons so everyone was
happy with the kit. I know we all had a blast
testing out the new smells and ideas from
Glade.
When it comes to home decorating I'm no
genius. I like the simple things in life.
I am one of those lucky people on the planet
who can look at a space and picture what it
needs to be stylish. Yes I consider it a gift.
Maybe it's because I know what I like and what
my family likes. It always amazed my former
sister in law Mary Jo, that I just seemed to
know what pieces and colors would work
together no matter what. I think it more like
bugged her to death about me which gave me
great joy as I considered her to be one of my
arch enemies in life. Anyway, that's another
story entirely so don't get me started on her.
Even though I know my home doesn't resemble a
designer showroom I still like to try to
create a warm and inviting space for family
and friends as well as for us. I enjoy having
a cozy space and a country rustic feeling
around me. An important aspect of that is the
smell that the room gives off when you enter
it. That sudden burst of fragrance that has
you say Aah, that smells nice. . In my mind
decor can only do so much if the odor isn't
pleasant so it's very important to me that my
peaceful homefront smells terrificly inviting
100% of the time. Gone are the days when you
had to reach for a can under the sink and
smell the fumes. Glade came up with a better
design for a modern approach.
Fortunately Glade and their new Glade
Expressions Collection of products with their
scents can leave your house looking good as
well as smelling good all in one. It's with
the Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser and Glade
Expressions Fragrance Mist. Two new and very
innovative I might add new products on the
market for other home decor geeks like me.
Glade's popular and award-winning home
fragrance's have long been known to help you
transform any room of your home in a heartbeat
but now they've gone a step beyond that. They
bring you the perfect expression for any mood
or anyoccasion that you might have taking
place in your cozy room.

Their latest addition is the new Glade
Expressions Collection and it features a
fragrance experience in two contemporary
stylish designs:

1.fragrance mist
2.oil diffuser

Both of these have been developed to appeal to
today's modern consumer. When my House Party
Box arrived I was thrilled with these products
inside. I was impressed right away with the
clean lines and contemporary styling even
before they were out of the packaging. Very
sleek design and really
special. I could see these working in many
homes across the USA.
The Glade Expressions Fragrance Mist is a
simple product to use in any room by giving it
a squeeze the light mist is released and I
like how it quickly dissipates into the air.
It was easy to use and smelled terrific yet
the long-lasting aroma of freshness lingered
for quite a while afterwards.
Available in four different scents (Cotton &
Italian Mandarin, Pineapple & Mangosteen, Fuji
Apple & Cardamom Spice, and Lavender & Juniper
Berry), the Fragrance Mist Starter Kit is good
for the environment. It's also a money saving
air freshing idea so I know moms like me will
appreciate that. Glade even gives you the
option of unscrewing the base and inserting an
affordable refill cartridge when it's used up.
That is cost effective and simple to do so you
won't have to find any household tools to open
it up when it's time to change.
I love the Cotton & Italian Mandarin and just
how fresh clean and alive it smells and the
mood it creates in the room. It brought out
the coziness factor all by itself. These are a
good find too at your department stores With a
retail price of just$4.49 for the Starter kit
and $3.49 for the refill. I doubt you'd be
able to do any better than that. This is one
product where the smooth stylish design and
low price come together to make it an easy
addition to any decor. I'm going to stock up
on some of the refills so I'll have my house
always smelling nice and cozy for friends,
neighbors and myself. Pampering your room is
just as important as pampering yourself. Your
house is the first impression you give when
someone rings your doorbell and I like to have
mine smelling sweet whenever I can.
For a continued release of fragrance with an
elegant look I found that the Glade
Expressions Oil Diffuser available in the
cream color I received or a bamboo wood took
around 15 seconds to have it set up and ready
to go. That's lightning speed time to refresh
your space.
How easy is it to use? Pretty easy, by placing
the oil bottle in the base and inserting the
diffuser card on top and pressing down until
it clicks you'll have the result you want.
It's easier than changing the ink in your
printer and the click you need reminds me of
that sound. It's so easy that even your hubby
could do it if he wanted!
Glade's new Expressions is definitely a
decorative way to add a light fragrance and a
modern feel to your own cozy home environment
so look for it at stores. They have a romantic
quality to them that I like and would be
especially nice for date night's with your
loved one.
The Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser retails for
$8.49 and is available in the Pineapple &
Mangosteen, Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice, and
Lavender & Juniper Berry scents. The refills
(each one lasts for 30 days) cost $5.49 and
can be easily changed out when needed. It's so
unique how they are using all these fresh and
tropical flower fragrances for inside the home
and I'm glad someone thought of it.
The Lavender & Juniper Berry has proven to be
just the right mix of sweetness and flowers
and I have enjoyed having the fragrance in the
background of my home in it's stylish display.

By being able to have the continual release of
the scent in the air without any electricity,
flames or gas, has elimated thehazardous
aspect for me so I appreciate that.
Plus since it uses no electricity you save on
the family budget. It uses no batteries so you
are not running to the store every day to
replace those.
The four trendy fragrance choices combine
classic scents with an exotic twist so think
of the Carribean.
Glade has been working with designer Giuliana
Rancic so they've done all of their homework
and know what styles and fashionable colors to
create for just the right feel.

As well as having your home smell and look
good for every day Giuliana Rancic also had a
few tips for hosting an event in your home:

"1.Start early! Have guests arrive before the
show starts to catch a first glimpse of
celebrities on the red carpet in their
luxurious fashions.

2.Limit the guest list and only extend the
invitation to your favorite die-hard
celeb-buffs and movie-goer friends. Limiting
the guest list will keep the conversation
intimate and the evening fun and lighthearted.
Provide a comfortable environment and
transform the ambiance in your home into the
warmest and welcoming place possible. This, of
course, is where the new Glade Expressions
Collection comes in and allows you to fill the
air with a fragrance that reflects your own
personal taste.

3.Find your perfect pairing. Bring out food
and keep the appetizers and drinks flowing for
your guests. Ahead of time, make red velvet
cupcakes paired with pink champagne to keep
the theme festive and classy.
Add fun and games. Get a list of all the
nominees and place your votes for winners! A
little healthy competition can make the night
fun and engaging."

Good tips,right? I like watching the Academy
Awards so can't wait for that and I'll sitting
right here in my sweet smelling home by Glade
Expressions.

I bet you're wondering what exactly comes in a House
Party kit,right? Well here's the list. Just look at
this massive amount of goodies my friends and I got to
play around with share with each other. It was so much
fun! There were surprises for everybody which makes for
a great event at your house. Thanks Glade & House Party!

on DVD this week and I had a chance
to watch an advance screener dvd. I'd never
watched this type of performances before so I
was surprised to find it drew me in quickly
with it's lavish sets and intriquing cast.
While you are watching it you'd never be able
to tell it's just a bunch of High School
friends because they seem to be doing a good
acting performance.

From their website;

"Each year high school students in eastern
Pennsylvania and western New Jersey compete to
take home a coveted Freddy Award for
outstanding musical theater performances. MVP
is a charming documentary that takes viewers
inside the production of The Freddy Awards.
The devotion and growth of the students
committed to their crafts make a great case
for keeping the performing arts in schools!"

I think that keeping the Performin Arts in
schools is a lively topic but it is something
many parents are wondering about right now. I
know myself I enjoyed being a part of my high
school's plays, musicals and events. It builds
character and gives you the chance to work
with fellow students in a whole different
light and it should be encouraged to continue.
Using the imagination is vital to the growth
of our youth and working on stages is the best
place to connect with your friends and high
school enemies. For the price of this film
which is just $19.99, you'll get a lot of
sparks into the imagination and drive behind
some of these young enterpreneurs of the
future.
Synopsis

In High school sports jocks are usually the
guys who end up with all of the funding, which
is a crying shame. Sports is not everything
people. Dramatic Arts and Performaces are a
classic movement that needs to live on and
carry out it's destiny.
One way that High Schools across the USA have
become more recognizable with their Dramatic
achievements is by using theseFreddy Awards
every year. It's actually a live television
event that celebrates excellence in high
school musical theater departments everywhere.
Illustrating that arts and education
definitelyencourages the same teamwork and
confidence that their beloved sport's do.
There needs to be more money and funding for
programs like this to succeed.
MOST VALUABLE
PLAYERS
follows three such High
School musical theater
groups on their creative journeys to the
elaborate award ceremony. This is like the
Super Bowl to them.
A compilation of students that speaks for the
entire High School by performing in thes
annual event. This dvd first off contains an
introduction by none other than, OPRAH WINFREY
who we all miss from her daytime show series.

TRAILER

The Freddy Awards recognizes excellence in
high school musicals in eastern PA and western
NJ. This documentary follows 3 of these
musical teams as they try to win the coveted
titles which are set up like our other Award
programs. Like; best actor, actress,chorus,
orchestra, set and best costumes. It's giving
a shout out to everyone that is involved in
the production. Winners each receive much
needed scholarship money to help with the
chance of continuing their dreams in the arts.
Like I said before it's a truly great
orginazation to be a part of.
Filmmakers Matthew D. Kallis and Christopher
Lockhart share their love and experience with
Art and Education classes in High Schools by
filming this documentary and showing the way
the students can group together and make this
happen. as well as drama that goes when
performing and preparing for the Freddy
Awards. This 90 minute drama filled
documentary is chock full of laughter, tears
and of course-drama everyone's favorite.
I'm glad to see small communities like these
bond over these coveted awards for our kids.

It's very evident that they do take so much
pride in their High School Arts programs and
would like to have them live on forever. With
films like these educators and local
politicians will see how important the arts
are in the school districts. It's just a shame
that so many budget cuts in this recession
time of our economy has caused so many
hardships to take away programs like this.
If you love documentaries like I do, this is
one not to be missed. It provides an honest
and humble look into the lives of some of the
best young actors and actresses around. .
In addition to this captivating documentary,
make sure you watch the bonus features which
include funny out-takes and detailed
interviews with those involved in the film
making process. You will also learn some
fascinating facts about the history of State
theatre. In this widescreen movie you'll learn
more about the Freddy Awards too which is
interesting. Maybe it will encourage you to
contact with your State department's heads and
see what is happening
in 2012 and how you can support this cause.

My co-writer Gloria Litz has now watched this and
wanted to give her opinion about it so here is her
post:

I watched Most Valuable Players and enjoyed it thoughly. It is a documentary made in Pennsylvania about high school theatre. In this area they celebrate the achievment of high school plays with The Freddy Awards. It follows 4 of the 27 area high schools through thier musical season and concludes with the big event of the awards. I found the talent of these young people a great surprise and it left me wanting more. It showed that not only sports should be rewarded and supported, but also the arts.

The dvd also contained alot of special features about the people and schools. I really liked the outtake reel, and the history of state theatre. This was a very well put together documentary and I look foward to seeing it again on the OWN Network.

Who would have thought that a dump truck named
Chuck could stir up so much excitement for
your kids? (The Adventures of Chuck & Friends:
Friends To The Finish), is now available on
DVD so grab a copy for yourself so your kids
can watch this funny dump truck escapades.
This dvd Featues ten full episodes, which is
more than you normally get from a children's
dvd so a good money saver item. They will have
plenty to keep them busy watching that many
episodes. Kids especially liked the
activities where you could color in and make
it your own which gives it a personal touch.
Chuck and all of his friends are passionate
about stunt driving and long to be involved
with it so they routinely make up obstacles
and stunts to go along with this passion.
In this series you'll see many instances of
friends coming together to help each other
which is one of the main points they bring
together for kids. Also responsibility comes
up a lot and is discussed quite a bit to
enforce the fact that everyone needs to be
responsible for himself and his own actions.
It's similar to the "Cars" franchise only with
bigger stronger trucks. What boy or girl
doesn't like to play with a dump truck? It's
one of the first toys you get as a small child
playing in the sand box.

Chuck & Friends Friens to the Finish
Episode List:

01. Race to the Race
02. The Best
03. Chuck's Big Break
04. Game On
05. Revving Up Rally
06. Grandpa Treadwell
07. Chuck Backs Up
08. Speed Indeed
09. Vertie's Stunt School
10. Dancing Wheels

Each of the ten episodes is filled with happy
sing a long out loud songs that your kids will
love because they are highly contagious. This
is a darling dvd series for preschoolers and
young children. Every visitor to the truck
Now see kids like it because Chuck the Dump
Truck, lives in a magical fantasy World of his
own. He does have some friends who always join
him in these fantasy adventures such as:

Handy the Tow Truck
Digger

Boomer the Fire Engine
Biggs the Monster Truck

They help to fuel his entusiasm and keep this
fantasy working. These six characters are
really colorful and fun to watch and will have
your child asking questions about what they
see and learn. The dvd is only $12.99 which is
a great price for ten episodes of anything
that your kids would actually sit thru and
watch. Chuck & Friends produces are made in
cooperation with
Hasbro Toys a
leading name in the toy industry for kids. I know
my kids grew up with all of their toys around them
because they last.
More ideas I noticed while whatching that they
talk about is decision making and how
important it can be. Using your imagination to
make and create beautiful things and most
importantly of all, working together as a team
mate. I think kids across the Nation would
enjoy following this Hub tv series and now
that it's available on dvd you would be smart
to add it to your preschool children's movie
collection. It will give them lots of colorful
fun antics to watch and interact with every
day. They will want to watch them over and
over so you won't be throwing your hard earned
cash down the drain with this dvd.

Five Disney Publishing World Apps For Kids
Product Review Learning Activities That Are
Fun



I had the opportunity of reviwing five new
apps for kid's made by
Disney
Publishing,
that I wanted to talk about
today. Disney Publishing Worldwide, is the
World’s largest publisher of children’s books
and magazines so it's no surprise that they
are also dominating the App Store charts with
new children’s title's in the Books,
Entertainment, and Education categories. I had
a chance to try out 5 of these apps myself and
it was a lot of fun for me and the kids.
I am glad there is a new way for kids to find
activities to fill their time that help them
with the learning process at the same time.
That way there is no time wasted because they
take away something they learned from it and
they had fun too. It's a win-win for moms
across America with the release of these
playful apps.
I'm new to the reviewing kid's apps experience
but with all of this new modern technology
available I decided it was time I get on board
train.
The experience was easier than I expected it
to be. I just needed to register at
Itunes
and I was on my way in seconds. The apps
are cute and colorful and easy to download
onto your phone. They send you an email, you
click on it and wham you've got this new story
game book,right there waiting for you and your
kids to read and interact with.

1. First to download was our (Toy Story Showtime)
Toy Story Showtime is a storybook app designed
to help children read and explore early
reading concepts like the basics. Kids can
join their favorite character, Buzz Lightyear
as he sets out to impress Jessie the Cowgirl
in the talent show. He tries a lot of
different talent acts out but mostly fumbles
with them all.
While the app was easy to use, the children's
attention was just turning the pages. They did
not seem to care about the interactive parts
of each page when I showed them. I don't feel
like they enjoyed the book being read and not
in the characters voices. This would be easier
to get their short attention span if it had
the characters voices included. This retails
for: MSRP $4.99.

2. The next app was (Beauty and the Beast) and
they did not really like the story but enjoyed
the coloring pictures, puzzles, and games a
lot.
(Beauty and the Beast: Storybook Deluxe)
retails for: $6.99. While this is a classic
storyline it's been told over and over again
so I think the kids just didn't care as much
about it as they should have. It did include

a ton of fun learning activities that they did
like with the clever games, movie clips,
different puzzles and especially the coloring
book pages where they could find a surprise on
each sheet. You can have the story recorded
with your own narration if you'd want. This
app retails for: MSRP $6.99.

3. Next up was:
(Don’t Let the Pigeon Run This App)
The pigeon app that I recieved was great! My
8 yr old grandaughter played with this for a
couple of hours. She really enjoyed making the
personalized stories and drawing the pigeon.
This was definitely an app that we would pay
for. It was very creative and entertaining for
all of my children. Thanks for a fun app. The
app lets users create your own Pigeon stories
and is fully animated with funny for the kids
mak your own technology and customized voice
making it their 2nd favorite one of all five.
This app retails for MSRP $6.99.

4. (Pooh’s Birthday Surprise)
Poohs Birthday and they seemed to like this
one the best. They enjoyed that it had
different things to do and not just the little
interactive things on a reading page. It has
more coloful illustrations and easy animation
tap's which let your kids be involved with the
party planning ideas. (MSRP $4.99)

5. (It's A Small World)
The last Disney app to review was (It's A
Small World). I thought this app was great
with the children's voices and the great
animation but it was hard to understand how to
move from page to page. So making that part
easier would be a big help. Kids are busy and
they have short attention spans so they are
not going to spend time searching how to get
from one page to another. If it's not evident,
they will just move on to another adventure. I
do love this timeless tune that all kids
know.This app retails for :
MSRP $3.99.

Overall these book apps were not as attractive
to my grandchildren as the Sesame Street ones
that we already owned since many were story's
that they had already read before so many
times that just lost interest in a few of them
.
