SheSpeaks ROCKS!

I've filled you in on SheSpeaks many, many, many times before. Just do a search using the tool on my right side bar and you'll get back an abundance of hits.

SheSpeaks and various product companies have blessed me several times since my last post. I got a rockin' follow up to the Hawaiian Tropic sunscreen- a creamy body lotion, coupons, and more sample packs for friends.

I earned a FREE magazine subscription and a $10 Amazon gift card for completing a survey on the new AMEX ZYNC card.

I received a smokin' hot pack from Perdue that included a silicone baking tray, a FREE product coupon, and more $2 coupons to share with friends.

Most recently I won the Snickers Coolest House on the Block Program (thank you, thank you, thank you Snickers!!!). I'm thinking this might just be the mother load of freebies I've ever received. The 2 packages from Fedex arrived today; all 40 lbs of it! Here are the pics of my loot:

(You'll notice a certain little someone wasted noooo time crawling her way over to the candy!)

Pictured above are:

  • Nineteen bags of SNICKERS® FUN SIZE® Peanut Butter Squared 11oz. bags
  • Ten bags of SNICKERS® FUN SIZE® 11 oz. bags
  • "Coolest House" front yard sign
  • One strobe light
  • One fog machine (with "fog" formula)
  • One pack of "crime scene" tape
  • One package of spider webs
  • Three branded clings
  • One extension cord
  • One box of SNICKERS® Brand post cards
  • One Halloween tote bag

According to SheSpeaks:

All we ask in return is that you share videos and/or photos of your house and trick-or-treaters so that we can show SNICKERS® Facebook fans what the Coolest House on the Block looks like!

Sounds easy enough to me! I can't wait to set it up and pass it out. This will be a Halloween to remember. SheSpeaks and Snickers, thank you, you rule!


Yes, I think I'm ready to admit it... I've been defeated!

I didn't think:

  • adding a 3rd child to the mix
  • going back to work
  • increasing my hours at work and taking on more roles
  • putting our house for sale on the market
  • looking to buy a new house
  • (and so much more)

would really affect my time for deals and sharing them on the blog but IT SURE HAS!

I can't believe it's been over a month since I've been on here. I'm sorry I left you for so long wondering where the heck I was.

Anyway, I'm officially putting it out there that I AM STILL ALIVE and that from here forward, my blog entries will be reduced in number. I plan on sharing my steals but the frequency of my posts will be on the lighter side.

I've still been getting my steals; not as much as I used to but still rockin' them none the less.

Some of my recent conquests include:

  • $20 money maker on Crest toothpast and $7.20 money maker on Nivea lip balm @ Rite Aid
  • Numerous Catalina deals at Acme
  • 1008 (yes, that's one thousand eight) Pampers wipes from Amazon delivered to my door for less than $20
  • Fisher Price train delivered to my door for $10

I'm sure there's a lot I'm forgetting, after all it has been a month. I've been following my usual hot spots for great tips on steals: Moms Need to Know, Hot Coupon World, Slick Deals (thanks Alice!), Common Sense With Money, and a few others.

So the point of this post? I'm here and stay tuned for some new posts!
