Review & Giveaway – SKOY Cloths (1/16)


SKOY Cloth Review & Giveaway

I have had the opportunity to try SKOY Cloths over the past few weeks.

Because we go through a lot of paper towels, I was looking forward to seeing how these would hold up. The company claims that one cloth will outlast 15 rolls of paper towels. I haven’t used them that long, so I cannot confirm the claim, but the one cloth I have been using has held up well during the last two weeks I have used it.

What I like:

- Very absorbent – supposed to hold up to 15x its weight
- Can be sanitized in the microwave or cleaned in the washer and dryer
- Size isn’t too big or too small
- 100% biodegradable, natural and re-usable – made of natural cotton and wood-based cellulose pulp; chlorine-free product using water-based colors and inks. Independent composting test showed the SKOY cloth broke down completely within 5 weeks.
- Use anywhere you’d use paper towels
- Save on paper towel cost and waste

What I don’t like:

- Microwaving may kill the germs, but it won’t clean them. For extra messy spills, I still prefer paper towels so I can toss them quickly. If I used SKOY for every mess, the cloths would be in the washing machine every day!

Buy them

I saw these at Sunflower Markets for around $7 for a three cloth pack or you can buy them for $6.99 at Amazon.com.

Win a 3-pack!

SKOY sent me two sets of their cloths – one to try and one to send to a lucky reader. Please note: The colors of your cloths will be different than what is shown above.

Mandatory Entry: Please leave a comment below letting me know why you want to try SKOY cloths.

Optional Entries:

1 – Like Craving the Savings on Facebook (+1)
2 – Follow @CravingSavings and/or @CravingGiveaway (+1 for each)
3 – Follow me on Google Friend Connect (right column) (+1)
4 – Follow me on Networked Blogs (+1)
5 – Be or become an email subscriber or RSS subscriber (+1 for each)

Rules:

If you haven’t already entered the two gift card giveaways (Kroger and Safeway/Tom Thumb), there’s one week left!


Holiday Cookie Exchange – Giveaway: Betty Crocker Cookie Mix, GladWare & $25 Safeway Gift Card (12/27)


Holiday Cookie Exchange with Betty Crocker & Gladware Giveaway

Are you planning to attend any holiday cookie exchanges in the next few weeks? Or do you plan to give cookies as a gift this holiday season?

Through Tuesday, December 14, visit the Safeway family of Stores (which includes Dominick’s, Tom Thumb, Randalls, Vons, and Genuardi’s) to purchase any two participating Gladware products and get a free Betty Crocker Cookie Pouch while supplies last.

Tom Thumb/Safeway Promotion

If you picked up a copy of the Safeway “Thanksgiving” $60 in coupons booklet, there is a $1.50/2 GladWare products coupon inside that you could use for this promotion. The booklet came out in early November, so chances are slim that you will find one if you haven’t already gotten it, but I have heard a few people have found them at select stores, so you never know.

Visit BakeSweetMemories.com where you will find several recipes that expand the possibilities of Betty Crocker cookie mixes.

We can no longer eat Betty Crocker cookie mixes (or any mixes for that matter), but I used to make their chocolate chip, chocolate oatmeal and sugar cookies pretty regularly. It was so easy to make great tasting cookies, but I never thought to take them to a new level like many of the recipes on BakeSweetMemories.com do. I’d love to try the Turtle Tassies. Yum!

The Bake Sweet Memories Website also offers a section on how to host a cookie exchange, in case you need ideas.

And while you’re at the Bake Sweet Memories Website, play the instant win game for a chance to win free baking products from Betty Crocker. I played and won a coupon for a free pouch of Betty Crocker Cookie Mix that was loaded directly on my Tom Thumb shopper card. Maybe I’ll use it to add cookies to my daughter’s teacher gifts.

Win a “Happy Holiday Treats” Prize Pack

Mandatory Entry (must be completed first): To win a package of Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix, a GladWare sample pack and a $25 Safeway gift card (also valid at Dominick’s, Tom Thumb, Randalls, Vons, and Genuardi’s), tell me which cookie recipe you most want to try this holiday season.

Additional Entries (optional):

1 – Visit BakeSweetMemories.com and play the Instant Win Game. Let me know if you won or not. If you won, let me know what you won! (+1)
2 – Like Craving the Savings on Facebook (+1)
3 – Follow @CravingSavings and/or @CravingGiveaway (+1 for each)
4 – Follow me on Google Friend Connect (right column) (+1)
5 – Follow me on Networked Blogs (+1)
6 – Be or become an email subscriber or RSS subscriber (+1 for each)

Rules:
- Ends at 11:59 PM Central on Monday, December 27, 2010. I will use Random.org to select the winner.
- The winner will have 48 hours to respond to my email, or I will select a new winner.
- Giveaway is limited to United States residents.

Disclosure: Safeway, Betty Crocker, and Glad provided me with the gift card, information, and prize pack through MyBlogSpark, but I was not obligated to host the giveaway or post this information.

Make Chex Mix for the holidays – Giveaway: Chex Cereal and $25 Kroger gift card (12/27)


Chex Mix Recipes and Chex Cereal & $25 Kroger gift card giveaway

Are you a fan of Chex cereals? If so, you may be interested to know that now through December 25th, Kroger stores are offering Chex cereal at their lowest prices of the year.

Kroger

I haven’t checked stores to see what the price is and I didn’t see Chex cereals listed in this week’s ad… but you can grab the $1.00/2 coupon from the 12/5 General Mills newspaper insert or print a $1.00/2 coupon (found on 2nd page), and check the price the next time you’re at Kroger.

Sure, you can buy pre-made Chex Mix, but there’s something that says “its holiday time” when you make Chex Mix from scratch. Plus you can have complete control over what ingredients you want to include when you make the mixes yourself!

Unfortunately we can’t eat Chex cereal, but I gave the Chex cereal that I received to a friend who loves to make Chex Mixes. I told her about the Ginger-Honey Crunch Recipe, Chex Pumpkin Pie Mix and other recipes on the Chex Website. Many of the recipes can be made in 15 minutes and the mixes can be served at parties or given as holiday gifts.

If you are eating a gluten-free diet, then you may like to know that the Chex Mix recipes site has a “gluten-free” icon next to certain recipes.

Win two boxes of Chex Cereal and a $25 Kroger gift card

Mandatory Entry (must be completed first):
To enter, please visit the Chex Mix recipes page and let me know which mix you’d like to try.
