Saving time and money

Staples and Twitter Mom's are asking us to share tips on saving time and money during the holiday season. They are also giving away Staples gift cards to lucky winners.

Funny they should mention Staples since it is one of my favorite places to shop for teens. As a grandmother of 14--yes, I said 14, it became a struggle a few years ago, just to wrap all their gifts. The whole family comes to Grandma's house on Christmas Eve and with presents for everyone (totaling 22 people) the wrapping along cost a fortune and took a lot of hours. But one year a grand daughter mentioned that her book bag was worn out and she'd like a new one. I started checking out the others backpacks and duffel bags and found that they were showing wear and tear also. And a great idea was born! I bought each child a new bag/backpack or tote, whichever it is that they use. Then I use that to put all their other presents in. New notebooks, markers, CD's and other school supplies. It all fits and no tape is needed.If I pick up another gift for one of them all I have to do is unzip - add and close! The kids love it and can't wait to see whats in their new bag each year!
So Staples has saved this Grandma time, money and aggravation!

Unwrap What’s Inside with Sharpie This Holiday Season

I was wandering around some of my favorite blogs earlier and while visiting over at Delightful Chaos I found a great review about one of my favorite things~ Sharpies! I have them all over the house and use them 100 different ways. But Toni's review offered several new ways to use Sharpies during the holiday season. I was so impressed that I went right to crafting and whipped up some really cute gift tags! With just some card stock, Christmas stickers ($1 at the dollar store) Sharpies and a paper punch I had a stack done in no time! Believe me, I am no artist, even stick people are crooked. But I found that I could draw a little string of Christmas lights to go around each tag. What do you think? I'm very happy with them!
Delightful Chaos also has a Sharpie giveaway that ends 12/12

Progresso New High Fiber Soup Review

As a reviewer for My Blog Spark I was offered a chance to review the New Progresso High Fiber Soups ~ quite a few weeks ago. But with a planned vacation, then hot steamy weather, the soup just didn't make the menu in a timely fashion! However, this week turned out to be perfect for me and Progresso! I have been sick all week with a bout of pneumonia and as I lay in my recliner wondering where I'd get the strength to fix nourishment I remembered those wonderful Progresso soups just waiting for my attention!
I have long been a fan of Progresso foods so I knew it would be good. I hadn't realized that the Chicken Tuscany was going to make even my doctor happy since it provides 28% daily value of fiber! And of course it was so easy to heat and eat! This soup is a veritible garden of veggies and wonderful white chicken meat. It smelled so good simmering in the pot and didn't disappoint in taste!
I've been known to put 3 cans of Progresso Soups in the crockpot and add dumplings thereby gaining credit for a wonderful homemade soup....but that's another story!;-)We'll just keep that between us, okay?
So anyway, I'm on the mend and have a new favorite soup! I'm thinking that if it tasted that good as sick as I was, its going to be gourmet when all my taste buds are working correctly! I'm looking forward to trying out all their varieties. With winter heading straight at Maine I'll be stocking up on the good stuff~ Progresso High Fiber Soups!

Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters Review

As many of you already know, I am a snack-a-holic! I never met a snack that I didn't like! So when I was contacted by My Blog Spark and asked if I would like to try the new Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters, I was all over it! LOL
My first thought was - FINALLY! Finally you ask? Yupper! Finally a snack with sweetness AND saltiness in one bite! For years I've been putting potato chips and chocolate bars together to get that combination! Now here comes Nature Valley with the perfect bite size treats, which of course are healthier than the combo I've been munching on all these years!
Anyway, My Blog Spark sent me all 4 flavors to try: Roasted Almond, Granola Nut Clusters, Honey Roasted Peanuts and Roasted Cashews. I have to tell you that these bite sized munchies are really good and satisfying too. I'm a big fan of cashews so those were my favorite. They all have just the right amount of honey and crunch. I did figure out that I guess I don't like mixed nuts because the Nut Lovers Clusters have a mix of nuts in them and didn't appeal to me so much. I guess I just prefer the destinctive nut flavors.
Another great thing is that these are in realsealable bags! Now I have a bag on my desk, one in the livingroom and another in the kitchen! ( Sorry to say that the cashews are all gone!)
So next time you think "I'd like something new", or you want healthier snacks for the kids lunch that they will actually eat, be sure to give Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters a try. You can thank me later! ;-)

Cystex Review and Giveaway

When I was contacted by a PR from
and asked to talk about Cystex, my first thought was that I don't know enough about the product to talk about it! However, my next thought was that I do have Urinary Tract Infections (UTI's) and would love to know more about the causes, preventions and remedies!
Cystex® Urinary Pain Relief Tablets combine a pain reliever for temporary relief of the burning and discomfort of urinary tract infections (UTIs), along with an antibacterial agent that helps stop the progression of the infection while you wait to see a doctor (UTIs require prescription antibiotics to completely cure the infection; see your healthcare provider for proper diagnosis and prescription medication).

In reading the info Laura sent I found that many things I believed may actually be myths, or Old Wives tales as I call them! Through many UTI's over the years I have heard that drinking cranberry juice helps, that cutting out caffiene is helpful and that some UTI's are caused by antibiotics! Well, whats a girl to believe? Thats where Cystex and the Cystex Getting To Know Your Bladder comes in!

Cystex has an interactive website at that includes accessible information such as an interactive “Ask the Urologist” feature and a “Know Your Bladder Better” Video Series; and they even have a blog

There is a lot of helpful info there, but it has to be said that the Cystex Web site is for informational purposes only and should not be construed as a personal medical diagnosis or formal medical advice. If you have any health questions or concerns, we recommend that you seek medical advice from your physician.

I'm glad to say that I don't have a UTI right now, but with my "tract record" I'm sure it won't be long until I do! Then I'll be very glad that I have Cystex in the medicine cabinet!
Cystex retails for $9.25 for a package of 40 tablets and $15.95 for a 100-count package. You can purchase online at, and other online retailers.

To enter to win a 40 count box of Cystex Urinary Pain Relief Tablets leave a comment here telling me you want it! One entry per person, please. Giveaway ends 5/23 and a winner will be chosen using
For extra entries ( leave a separate comment for each one you do) you can:
