The Magic Bullet To Go Giveaway(s)

Okay, I have to admit that until yesterday I had never heard of The Magic Bullet To Go! Where have I been?

Anyway- I've seen them now and it appears to be a product that once you see it you've just got to have one!
If you're not familiar, the Magic Bullet To Go is a portable blender that runs on batteries! YES! So it will be great for tailgate parties, camping and other outdoor get togethers. This morning I've found several blogs that are doing a giveaway for them. You can read some great reviews and recipes then enter to win one of your very own! Here you go:

Win Maple Syrup!

As a child growing up on a farm in rural Maine we always made our own maple syrup in the springtime.It was a lot of work to tap the trees, gather the sap buckets and tote them to the sugar shack where we boiled the sap into syrup. But it was also a lot of fun! Maple syrup was more like a condiment back then. We used it on pancakes, biscuits, ice cream and it was added to apple pies. That was a lot of good eating!
Now the Coombs Family Farms are offering a Maple Syrup Giveaway. You can read all about it and enter here:

Reynolds Wrap Discovery

No, of course I didn't just discover Reynolds Wrap! I was first married on 1/20/68 and have been using it for all those 42 years. Not only do I bake with it, I line my paint tray for easy cleanup, I have made helmets for Halloween costumes and even used it for emergency gift wrap! So obviously, I love Reynolds Wrap! But I have always had one complaint: You know when you grab the box in your right hand and pull out the foil- it just jumps out of the box and unrolls its way to the floor!Then its almost impossible to get back in the box with the box flaps getting in the way! GRRR!! ( Now I'm wondering why I hold it in my right hand in the first place- being right handed!) WELL-- hold the fort! Go get your box- right now.....I'll wait......

Got it? Now look at the end of the box:

See that little triangle that says "PRESS HERE TO LOCK ROLL"??? When the heck did they add that? OMG! The box also tells me that Reynolds Wrap has been trusted since 1947!! I sure hope that tab wasn't there all those years and I totally missed it! If you didn't know either please leave a comment because right now I am feeling pretty numb! ;-)

**These opinions are mine alone. I was neither offered or received compensation for this post.

Just follow us @StaplesTweets, tweet the @StaplesTweets contest link and tell us your #worstgift and you’re automatically entered to win a FREE netbook.

Most of you know that I love winning and I also love twitter so its a natural for me!
Oh, and my worst gift? One Christmas I received a free calendar from the oil company my son-in-law works for.How cheap is that? And I gave him new floor mats for his truck! I cried all Christmas Day for the lack of feeling involved ( I swear I raised my daughter better!She got ditzy when she married this winner!) However, there are no secrets in this family and the next day I received a beautiful bouquet with an I'm sorry card from my daughter.Okay...but its been 6 years. I guess that hurt is lingering on! By the way- he's gotten a beer can cozy every since! Don't get mad- get even I say!
