Review & Giveaway: JUMBiES Stuffed Animals (12/9)


JUMBiES Review & Giveaway

Once upon a time, many baby animals were being born at once — so many that the storks couldn’t keep up as much as they tried. It eventually got to be too much for the storks and they started crashing into each other!

JUMBiES Stork

The result? Twelve jumbled animals that the storks decided to call JUMBiES!

The storks took the JUMBiES to a wonderful island they called JUMBiELAND where these animals could stay until the storks could find new homes for them.

Three of these cute JUMBiES arrived at our home recently, to my daughter’s delight. They are:

JUMBiES - Zumbo the Zelephant
Zumbo the Zelephant (Zebra + Elephant)


JUMBiES - Leopold the Leopird
Leopold the Leopird (Leopard + Hornbill Bird)


JUMBiES - Yuri the Moosecow
Yuri the Moosecow (Moose + Cow)

When the package arrived, I noticed the JUMBiE “sand dollars” that were included with the JUMBiES stuffed toys. Each sand dollar features one of the JUMBiES, a value and the JUMBiE’S motto. For example, the one that features Filbert the Blabbit (Blue Bird + Rabbit) is worth fifty sand dollars and has “Don’t keep it a secret, Blabbit!” written on the back. I used the sand dollars to create a fun discovery game for my daughter, which she talks about in this video review:

What I like about JUMBiES:

- They’re cute and unique
- They have a story behind them to make for a fun discussion with your child(ren)
- They will stand/sit up on their own (this was one of the first things my daughter talked about)
- There’s a Website with games and other activities to extend the “JUMBiELAND experience”
- They are easy to surface wash
- They’d make fun stocking stuffers

The JUMBiES that we received are well-made, but they are best suited for children 3+ years old due to the potential choking hazard of some small, hard parts on the toys (JUMBiES’ eyes, Moosecow’s antlers, etc.).

Buy JUMBiES

You can buy JUMBiES online for $7.95 + shipping & handling, or at one of the retailers listed on this PDF. Each JUMBiE comes with a sand dollar and mini storybook.

Win Two JUMBiES!

One lucky reader will win two randomly selected JUMBiES!

Mandatory Entry:

- Visit JUMBiELAND.com and tell me which JUMBiE you like best.

Disclosure: I received three JUMBiES, two comic books, and several sand dollars in exchange for writing this review and hosting this giveaway. All opinions in this review belong to me and to my daughter.


Review & Giveaway: PretonSaver Ink Saver Software – 4 winners (12/9)


PretonSaver Printer Ink Saver Software

I am embarrassed by how long it has taken me to write this review and post the giveaway, but on the positive side, I have had a lot of time to try out the software!

PretonSaver is a ink saver software program that allows you to not only save money on printer ink but also help the environment because it promotes “green printing“.

If you use your printer regularly like I do to print coupons, rebates, and other documents, PretonSaver will help you save money on ink while you print to save money on other items!

My Experience
In October, I participated in a Just Between Friends (JBF) consignment sale and had to print around fifty pages of tags on card stock. My black ink cartridge had been low for about a month, but I didn’t change it because I wasn’t printing too often.

I waited until the last minute to print my tags and had no replacement ink in the house. I used this opportunity to see if PrestonSaver could help me get all the tags printed so they were still legible enough to be scanned/read at the sale.

I’m happy to report I was able to successfully print all 50 pages of tags, and I continued to use the black printer ink cartridge for another month before having to change it. While the quality wasn’t great, it was decent – especially knowing the ink cartridge was almost out of ink. I felt like I really stretched the life out of that cartridge.

Once I changed the ink cartridge, I tried the PretonSaver program again and could not tell a difference in the print quality unless I changed the savings percentage to the maximum 70% savings.

I have a bag full of ink cartridges that I need to take somewhere to recycle. I am hopeful I will no longer have such a full bag of cartridges now that I am using PretonSaver whenever I print.

The only minor annoyance I found was that each time I printed something, the box (shown above) would pop up and ask me to select a quality percentage before I could print. I thought it would be nice if I could click a ‘do not show this’ box and keep all printing at default of 35%. I just realized this option does exist, but you have to right-click on the Preton icon in the lower right corner of your browser and unclick the “Prompt before Printing” option. I would love to see this on the pop-up itself, but I understand why it is not there.

Some highlights:

- Have a document with images and text, but only want the text? Click “Print text only” to remove the images during printing.
- The default setting of 35% will generally give you the best savings/quality.
- You can adjust the slider with each document you print. The slider provides a recommended scale so you know where to set it for photos, text, email, etc. for maximum savings and quality.
- Since starting to use the software in September, PretonSaver estimates that I have saved $67.51 in ink costs by using the program, with an annual savings prediction of more than $270.
- Each time I print, I see a summary in the bottom right of my screen that looks like this:

PretonSaver Printer Ink Saver Software

The features and system requirements listed on the PretonSaver Website include:

Features:

- Reduces consumable spending by up to 50%

Giveaway: EcoSMART Home Pest Control (12/6)


ecosmart home pest control giveaway

EcoSMART would like to giveaway one of their Home Value bundle of 100% safe pesticide products to one lucky reader!

The bundle includes:

– Ant and Roach Killer (14 oz can)
– Home Pest Control (24 oz spray bottle)
– Flying Insect Killer (14 oz can)

I have not used EcoSMART products yet, but hope to soon. I love that they are offer several safe pesticide solutions that use botanical oil blends (food grade ingredients) that are specifically designed to attack certain pests (e.g. ants and roaches) so they will not harm you, your child(ren), pet(s) or the environment.

How EcoSMART Got its Start
When Steve Bessette and his wife were expecting twins almost two decades ago, they looked into transitioning their home to a toxic-free environment. Unable to find a 100% safe pesticide brand, Steve founded EcoSMART.

EcoSMART Product Line
In addition to the EcoSMART home pest control products, EcoSMART also sells organic pesticides for vegetables and other outdoor use (such as combating mosquitoes, fire ants, and weeds).

Buy EcoSMART products

You can buy EcoSMART products at many major retailers like Walmart and Tom Thumb/Randalls/Safeway as well as places like Calloway’s Nursery (if you are in Dallas-Fort Worth).

Review & Giveaway: HoMedics Shiatsu Massage Pillow (12/6)


HoMedics Shiatsu Massaging Pillow Review & Giveaway

Before starting on the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, I spent as little time as possible in the kitchen. Now I spend at least an hour each day, but sometimes six or seven hours, prepping, cooking and cleaning up afterward. My back often aches after standing for so long. So when HoMedics contacted me about hosting a review and giveaway for their Ultra Plush Shiatsu Massage Pillow, I quickly said yes!

HoMedics provided me with a code to use to order the product on their site. I found the HoMedics.com order and checkout process to be very easy. You can get a shipping cost estimate before you enter all your personal information, which I love! Billing, shipping, payment and review information are all presented on one page so no need to click through multiple pages to place your order. The checkout process is very quick and easy-to-follow.

I received my pillow within days of ordering it and I was eager to put it to use on my achy back. I used it the night I received it after spending multiple hours prepping food. I think I was too eager because I didn’t bother to read the instructions and I used it for nearly an hour!

It felt so good on my back that I didn’t want to stop, so when it would automatically shut off, I immediately started it back up again. That was a big mistake as I had a few areas of sharp pain in my back the next day. I decided that I should probably take a look at the instructions. They clearly state not to use the product for more than 15 minutes at a time. Oops…

Now that I have read the product instructions and I am using the pillow properly, I love it. When I want a deeper massage, I turn on the heat and lift the flap. When I want a softer massage, I put the flap down. For an even softer massage, the instruction manual suggests putting a towel between your back and the pillow.

The product is meant for use on the the neck, shoulders and back. I have been using it primarily for my lower back – where the majority of back pain and tightness settles.

The product is portable, but it is corded, so it needs to be used near an electrical outlet. It is not meant for use in the car, and should not be used by children without supervision (my daughter is drawn to this pillow so we have had a few discussions about how it is not a toy).

Check out the Shiatsu Massage Pillow or other massage products from HoMedics.

Buy It

You can buy the pillow for $39.99 on the HoMedics Website or look for a retailer near you that carries the pillow by entering the product model number – SP-20H – and your zip code in the search form.

Win It

One lucky reader will win a HoMedics Ultra Plush Shiatsu Massage Pillow!

Review, Giveaway & $1/1 Coupon: StaphAseptic (12/9)


StaphAseptic Review & Giveaway

A few years ago, my cousin was hospitalized with a staph infection…. the dreaded MRSA – a highly resistant strain of staph that often will not respond to antibiotics. Most of her family came down with MRSA more than once — apparently it was very difficult to get rid of! They think it was initially contracted at a gym and then spread through contact at home.

MRSA spreads through contact and enters the body through cuts. So when I heard about StaphAseptic, I was eager to try it. While StaphAseptic is not a cure for MRSA, it is a preventative product that is worth having around the house if you are concerned about staph infections. After hearing about my cousin’s scary experience, I want to take preventative measures to avoid going through what she and her family went through.

You can apply StaphAseptic to minor cuts, scrapes and burns. I recently had two skin biopsies and used StaphAseptic before covering the areas with bandages. I was a little concerned about using it on the biopsied areas because the cuts are a little deep, but I had no problems with the product. I plan to use this on my daughter’s cuts and scrapes too, for added protection.

StaphAseptic is not only a first aid antiseptic, but also a pain relieving gel (includes Lidocaine). It does not contain antibiotics. To reduce your chance of getting a staph infection, use it in addition to following these other preventative steps:

- Treat and cover wounds
- Don’t share personal items (e.g. towels)
- Shower after physical activity
- Properly clean gear and equipment
- Keep hands clean
- Consult your physician for all active wounds

Buy StaphAseptic

You can find StaphAseptic at most major retailers for around $7.99 and $14.99. Be sure to print this $1.00 off coupon too!
