Tornado Victims Need Our Help

I am putting a challenge out to all of you in the coupon blogosphere.
1) Dedicate a post or two to coupon match ups for personal hygiene, baby and other necessary items.
2) Encourage your readers to go buy some of the needed items
3) post in your blog where people can donate.

We have lost 128 people at last count in the State of Alabama and many many more are missing. They need so many things, this is the very least we can do.

Gracie has started taking Claritin... what a difference!

As you know, I have been working with BzzAgent and sampling products so that I can write reviews. My latest product test is for Children's Claritin. It could not have come at a better time! My youngest daughter has terrible allergies. She coughs, sneezes and suffers terrible congestion from April through the end of May! When I received this package I was thrilled!

Gracie has begun taking the product and within a few days, she is like a whole new kiddo! She is just as active, and no cloudy, sleepiness that you can get from some allergy medicines. As this is Easter weekend, we have spent  the entire weekend outside with family, hunting eggs, having picnics, and just spending time together. And she has been in the thick of it all!

I can personally recommend this product for your child with allergies! And if you have problems with "I don't wanna take the yucky medicine" times, NO ISSUES!!! It is a grape chewable! We had no trouble... no muss no fuss!

Give your little one a clear head, free from allergies! Try Children's Claritin!


I have received a free sample of this product for testing purposes from the product manufacturer and I post reviews for BzzAgent based on my personal experiences. All opinions are my own.

How Would You Like to Celebrate Cover Girl's 50th Anniversary?

What would you do to celebrate 50 Beautiful Years? Well, if you were a BzzAgent, you would do things like get free samples of the newest Cover Girl products, take quizzes, get informative emails AND be rewarded for your efforts! How do I know this? I am a BzzAgent! I will spend the next 76 days, at my own convenience, telling people all about BzzAgent and 
My Cover Girl  on Facebook, Twitter, Girl Scouts, the soccer field,  the grocery store and anywhere else that I strike up a conversation! I am truly excited to get to be a voice for Cover Girl, because Cover Girl has helped me find the confidence to have my own voice for 40 years.
Happy 50th Birthday Cover Girl! I hope you have many many more!

 Well, the first stop was at CVS!  The Gillette razors were B1/G1 half from $8.99 so, $8.99 and $4.50.  I used a BOGO Q on the Razors (-$8.99) and a $3/1 MQ on the second package (-$2). So... $1.50 for both packs!

The M & Ms were on sale for $1.99 each (reg. $3.99) -there was a second bag that I gave away. I used 1- $2/2 Mars Easter Items IPQ.  So in all,
