GIVEAWAY: Robby Wash Laundry Ball Pack! (US) Over 120 Washes! -CLOSED-

Winner This ball is COOL!  All you do is throw it into your washer and BAM...clean clothes.  I admit opening up the tray and poring in liquid detergent isn't the biggest task in the world, but just throwing in a ball has spoiled me rotten!!   The Robby Wash Ball will last for 12 months on average or over 120 washes!!   The ball itself will last for 2 -3 years. I tried out the Robby Wash Fuchsia Landry Ball Pack  from the green home products company Oransi .  The Fuchsia one is for cold water loads and there is a Blue Washing Ball that is for loads using temperatures above 90F.  The pack comes with the washing ball, a stain stick and 3 extra packets of pellets! How it works (from the website ) The Robby Wash ball uses a unique and patented worldwide technology to clean your laundry even better than the powder laundry detergents it was independently tested against.   Its activated macromolecules are gradually released through the wash, dissolving dried-in stains by gene


Winner Here is a great shared giveaway for a Flirty Apron!  Enter to win an apron of your choice below!  I suppose I should graduate from just wiping food directly onto my clothes. :) Review by Crazy for Deals and Image sources from Every woman wants to look great doing whatever they are doing like cooking.  With Flirty Aprons , you can cook in style.  The aprons are designed so that any woman wearing it can look beautiful in it. The aprons tie from the back which allows you to adjust the length so that it fits perfectly.  The aprons are durable and above all looks great.  Flirty Aprons have lots of different designs that you can choose from.  They even have aprons for kids and men. When I got my Chic Pink apron in the mail I was excited.  I am a petite girl who is not very tall so there are not too many aprons out there that fit nicely let alone look good.  Flirty Aprons not only was chic but I don't have to worry about it being too big.  Althou

Guest Post: Takeout on a Tight Wallet!

Guest post by Kate Sorensen from  Coupon Cravings Sometimes enjoying a nice dinner in is all someone wants, but doing so on a budget is a whole other story. While it’s true that using a coupon can help minimize the cost, here are some other ideas you can use to help get what you want without paying full price.    1. Order things separate. I am an “on the side” girl - I like my sauces separate, as well as condiments. When I’m in the mood for something, I can choose and this way I also get some extra sauces... I can also tailor the menu to the desires of anyone in my family!    2. Order in bulk. Just like at the grocery store, rather than the prepackaged “meals”, buying in bulk also saves at the drive through. A small fry at a large chain is $1, where as a large is $1.79. You get what seems like four small orders in a large serving, so it’s way worth it! Keeping a small toy in the car for the little ones might appease the urge to get the “meal” just for the toy. 

GIVEAWAY: Spoonful of Comfort Chicken Soup Care Package OR a Sweet Squeeze Gift Set!! (US) -CLOSED-

Winner Spoonful of Comfort is a great alternative to sending flowers!  I received a Chicken Soup Care Package and it was a comfort to our whole family! :)  Plus who doesn't want to have dinner sent to their door!!  That's definitely an awesome gift for someone who eats. :):) Included was a BIG jar of Chicken Noodle Soup, 6 Homemade rolls, a note card and 6 cookies!  I really liked that the soup wasn't over seasoned or salty.  I like the option of adding my own. :) The "made from scratch" rolls looked average but tasted HEAVENLY!  Not like any I've bought at the grocery store, that's for sure.  And the cookies...OH the family was lucky to try these out because I was hittin' them HARD. I would definitely recommend Spoonful of Comfort!  The shipping was fast and when I opened the box it was all packaged so nicely!  Anyone seeing this at their doorstep would be excited.  There are so many times in our lives when we know som

REVIEW: Naoma StewArt Photography + Discount!

Review by Veronica The month of June was a busy, fun-filled month. I had my sister's kids visiting me for the whole month, and we had some really fun moments.  We had the opportunity to have pictures taken by Naoma StewArt Photography . She was able to so beautifully capture my niece, nephew and my son. What a fun way to remember their trip to UT. Naoma is a UT native who fell in love with photography.   Travel within Utah County is free of charge. She charges a traveling fee of $25 for surrounding counties. Her photography packages are very well priced.  She charges $150 and this includes sitting-fee and 25-35 edited images! Tight Wad Followers get a discounted price of $125 for the photography package if you book her over the course of the next month!What a sweet deal from someone who is REALLY good! Please check out her Naoma's facebook page and her blog for more pictures! Please note she recently changed her photography name from Cocoa Bea to Naoma S
