Last Day to Join Mommy Must Have Giveaway!

Mommy Must Have ....


Time in a day,
Presence of mind,
a group of supportive friends, and

Enough love in her heart to make it through the day.
Sometimes it is hard to know what those MUST have items are! AttachedMoms.com and A little bit of Everthing picked a few of their favorites and are excited to share them with you!


The first must have is a great system for organizing. Why not check out an Organizing Utility Tote by Thirty-one Gifts.


One of the basics supplies out there is soap. It Is Well Soap is family-made from a very loving family based in Phoenix.


The next must have is a baby carrier. Babies need that touch and mommy will have things to get done. Unfortunately some of those take a hand or two and a baby carrier like the Boba is a wonderful option!


The next must have is great shoes for the kiddos! See Kai Run offers cute shoes for both boys and girls, and their crib shoes are a definite must have!


Once your kiddos start eating food, it will be important to introduce them to fruits and vegetables. Copy-Kids DVD is a great way to help that picky toddler see other kids enjoy vegetables and likely get your kiddo on the route to good eating as well!


Now, don't forget about aunt flow! I tell you, even with TANDEM nursing on demand, I had less than 6 weeks between post-partum flow and aunt flow. To get yourself covered, consider reusable mama cloth. Really, it works awesome! MotherMoonPads are top of the line!


When baby is here, and perhaps elimination communication isn't cut out for your family, may I suggest cloth diapers? There are tons of options out there from upcycled t-shirts on the "old fashioned" prefolds to factory made waterproof diapers. Right in between that you have work-at-home-mom made diapers. One of my favorites is Made With Love Diapers.


Finally, kiddos know that mama needs relaxing, and one great way to relax is with a pedicure. Well sometimes getting that time alone isn't possible so kiddos can join in with the fun with Piggy Paint!

CLOSED: Almondina Cookie Giveaway



A sampler package of Almondia!

What is Almondina?  It's a Delicious Cookie without the Guilt!   A no added fat, no-cholestrol, no salt, no preservatives cookie.   These cookies do not have to be dipped, they are perfect just to eat for a snack.  The company has been around since 1929.  Honestly it was the first time I had heard of them.

Let's just say when I received the sampler package above, I was concerned, because I'm not a coffee drinker.   So I had a plan to take these cookies to a women's retreat.  I  had decided I was going to take them and see how everyone else liked them with their coffee.   However, with must persistence my daughter asked to try one.   So I pulled out two, one for me and one for her out of the Ginger-spice Biscuits.  Thirty minutes later I had to open a second and third pack for my other children as they arrived home from school.  They were that good.

We tired them with spreadable cheeses, dipped in hot Chocolate and in tea.   We ate a lot of them straight from the package.  


My favorite was the Cinaroma.   
Wanna Win a sampler pack? The Savings Wife teamed up with some blogger friends and Almondina to bring this giveaway.  Just enter below or get your own by visiting Almondina.com

Giveaway ends on November 24, 2012. Open to US residents only.

GOODLUCK!

CLOSED: Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce Giveaway



If you have been on Facebook you have probably seen all the talk about "Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce."   I know I was curious so when they offered bloggers a chance to review it, I jumped at the chance.   I also liked how it says right on the label, "Christ is our CEO!"

My first opportunity to try it was a burger.   My husband tried to put the sauce on while grilling.  He was adding it to frozen burgers.   It did absorb in as the burgers thawed and it gave it a sweet A1 Sauce sauce type of flavor.    

The second was on Kielbasa    I tried it as a dipping sauce.   I must say it was pretty good.   Tastes like a mix of Heinz 57 with a smokey favor.  The sauce is thinner than ketchup.   


Wanna try some for yourself?  

TheSavingsWife.com was offered two bottles to giveaway.    

Enter the giveaway below for 2 bottles of Country Bobs All Purpose Sauce.  Don't wanna wait?  You can go to your local Walmart to purchase it or Country Bobs Website

Giveaway is open to US residents only. Giveaway ends on October 31, 2012.

GOOD LUCK!
