Giveaway: My Lip Stuff -CLOSED-

Review by Veronica Winner The other day, I received some fun items from My Lip Stuff in the mail!  I was so excited - especially during this time of year when lips are chapped almost constantly, unless you properly take care of them.  Having lip balm available in my purse, coats, upstairs and downstairs helps keep my lips moist and supple. :)  In fact, the mission on My Lip Stuff is simple:  end the suffering of people with chapped lips all across the land.  I hope Tight Wad in Utah can help with that mission! My Lip Stuff sent me three different flavors of fine natural butters and oils blended to create the ultimate lip moisturizer.  My flavors include cake and ice cream, pumpkin cheesecake and my favorite, candy cane.  These feel so nice on my lips and are so flavorful, they MIGHT just help me lose weight, too! Some more information on My Lip Stuff here: They have over 500 flavors!!  They are animal and earth friendly.  And they have vegan options as well. . I respect compan

How to Make Yogurt

Not my favorite flavor of powdered milk, but still makes good yogurt! One of the many food items I have plenty of is powdered milk.  My husband LOVES milk and since he bought the biggest food storage ever before we got married I have been trying a variety of ways to use it.  One of my favorites is home made yogurt.  I love that I know what's in it and that I can make it myself.  It isn't the fastest procedure, but luckily it involves very little hands-on time. You want to try it?  Let me first explain that I learned everything I know about making yogurt from reading one of my all time favorite blogs, kitchenstewardship .  It's not your average mommy blog - she writes a lot, and about serious things.  I always feel smarter after reading her posts.  I don't believe or practice everything she shares, but I do get great frugal and healthy ideas from her.  Check out her post all about yogurt for more information. Here I am demonstrating how to make just two cups of y

Ratuki Game Review

I received the Hasbro game Ratuki (ra-too-kee) to review.  It's awesome!  And not just because I won my husband in 3 straight games. :):)  Well that helps, but it really is fun and easy to learn.  It's also fast with not too many rules to get me confused. The best thing about Ratuki is that there are NO turns!!!  You just go.  I love that. I also love chess, but I can't play with people that think too long about their move. I'd rather learn patience from my crockpot. :)  At least then you get a nice warm The game is for 8+ for 2-5 players.  Although you could easily adjust the rules for young-ins to play. .

GIVEAWAY: Powermat & up to 3 receivers! -CLOSED-

Winner This is pretty cool.  Have you heard of Powermat Wireless Charging ?  It's a great way to get rid of some of the cords in your life.  My husband and I got iPhones a few months ago, which we were able to do because our grocery budget was cut low enough.  Now with the Powermat I just slip the phone into the receiver (or case) and then I just lay it on the mat to charge!  Easy!  My phone used to go to low battery quite often, but since I've just been laying it on the mat when I'm not using it, my phone is always charged!  And it won't overcharge my phone. Another great feature is that it comes with a Powercube : You place this on the mat as well and it can charge over a thousand different devices.  My son LOVES to play with our old cell phones, but is sad when they stop making beeps and sounds.  I love him, but I am not going to keep around tons of chargers to keep these old phones alive.  The Powercube keeps us all happy! :)  It comes with 7 different tips.
