Purex Baby! – Free detergent, enter sweepstakes to win $$$


Purex provided me with a sample of Purex Baby so I could review it. However, all of the opinions expressed here are my own.

Hi there! Me again, your local Purex pusher… haha…

This time I was sent Purex Baby to sample and review, and I was so excited… after use I knew I had reason.

I have been buying more expensive detergent mainly for my cloth diapers, since they require a more natural based baby detergent, and using it for my baby clothes/baby stains as well. Now I don’t have to… Purex Baby Detergent does a great job of getting stains out and still keeping in mind the sensitive baby skin of Tanner. AND for a fraction of the price. 🙂

Some other fun facts: It’s specifically designed to work in all washers (Top loaders and HE front loaders); the dermatologist-tested formula guarantees to remove stubborn stains without hurting delicate clothes, like baby type footie jammies; Hypoallergenic; and last but not least, gentle baby-inspired fragrance 🙂

It’s not available in every store, so use the store locator to find a distributor near you.

ENTER TO WIN THE PUREX “OH BABY” SWEEPSTAKES! You could win one of 3 $500 grand prizes, or a free bottle of detergent…

OR… first 3 to comment on this post (whether here or on Facebook) get a free bottle, on me! 🙂


Purex with Oxi – Free detergent!

Purex plus OxiPurex provided me with a sample of Purex plus Oxi so I could review it. However, all of the opinions expressed here are my own.

Having a two year old in the house has its challenges… especially when it comes to keeping him clean. There are days I look at him after a full day of fun and play and wonder how the heck he got that dirty… and then I remember he’s 2! 😛 I usually will use my regular Purex and add Oxi to it (I also use Oxi for my cloth diapers so I have it in bulk!) so when Purex sent me the Purex plus Oxi, I thought it was the best of both worlds. It’s great because it gets everything just as clean as using both separately, and so much more convenient. I have used it after races (ground in mud/dirt), after playing in the grass (grass stains, one occasion of dog poop – yuck! ) and daycare everyday use and everything comes out completely clean.

Check out the Purex plus Oxi page for more info!

I would recommend it to anyone… and on that note… a contest!

The first three people to share this blog post get coupon for a free bottle of Purex plus Oxi! 🙂

Back to School sales! Part 1

So as you’ve probably noticed, I’ve been on hiatus for…well… a long time. Having a very active 19 month old (and now being 8 months pregnant) has really put a halt to my “personal time”. With that, my couponing has gone down the drain. 😦 I am trying to slowly get back into it as we are going to need the extra $$ with the new bambino… and new-to-us car…

2010 Pilot!

I was very proud of myself the other day for getting 1/2 gallon of ice cream at Basha’s for only 88¢ each! (In-ad coupon to make it $1.88, then manufacturer coupon for $1 off so 88¢ total). It got me on a little high, made me really want to get back into saving money. So today when I saw the Staples ad with the BTS items on sale, and since I needed to drop off some empty ink cartridges anyways (haven’t done THAT in months either!), AND my church is doing a BTS drive next Sunday, I thought it was the perfect time to get back on the horse.

This week at Staples there are lots of things for 1¢, 25¢, 50¢ or $1.00 (with minimum $5 purchase). There is also a $5 off of $30 coupon in the ad and online to use. I also had a couple store credits ($60 total) that I have been saving. I needed to order some ink for my printer so I knew I would hit the $5 mark, no problem.

The 2nd ½ Challenge… UPDATE

Well, the 2nd Half Challenge is still alive and kicking… We cancelled our DirecTV as of 7/1, and cancelled our home phone as of last week. I think the only people who ever call our home phone was either of our mothers, solicitors and Mike Milewski. Ha ha. So don’t try it anymore ’cause we won’t answer (not like we really answered it before…)

Next up: Sell a motorcycle, research cars and start to pay down some Student Loans….
