Wal-Mart offers Bonus Box Tops for Education + $25 Wal-Mart GC Giveaway *****ENDED*****

Standard

It’s that time of year again! School is starting back, and parents are running around to grab all those school clothes, and school supplies. It can be very hectic! Let’s not forget about those snacks, and meals for breakfast, or a quick snack to fight those after school hunger pains! Most of you have heard, or know about Box Tops for Education. Box Tops for Education is where you can earn money for your school, by clipping the Box Tops for Education labels, that can be located on many products! Why throw away free money? Our school could really use the extra money! What I like to do is save all of them in a little jar on top of the microwave. I collect them all summer long! Last year, I remember the whole school had a contest going on, and whoever collected the most box tops won a pizza party! That was really fun for the kids! You can stay connected with Box Tops on Facebook and Twitter. You can find more about the program by visiting the Box Tops for Education website.

Contain This! Review

Standard

I’ve searched a lifetime, trying to find that perfect product to keep my sandwiches from being soggy! I remember being a kid, and getting my sandwich out for lunch. It’d be flat and soggy! YUCK! I would ask my friend to share her lunch. There’s nothing more gross, than a soggy sandwich! There’s nothing better, than a delicious sandwich whenever we, go on a picnic, to the waterpark, zoo, or just travel. Usually, I separate everything, because I always end up with a soggy sandwich! When I had the opportunity to review, “Contain This!” I was really ecstatic! Contain This! is a container, made to keep your dry ingredients, separate from your wet ingredients. While keeping your ingredients cold and fresh, until your ready to munch down! I wanted to put this product to the test, and see if I could say goodbye, to those soggy sandwiches!

For the first experiment, I packed my hubby a plain ham sandwich for lunch. I didn’t want to try any extra meat, or condiments for the first time. Now what’s awesome, about this product, is that there’s a little tray at the bottom called, “PerfectCHILL” and you put it in the freezer the night before, and then put it back into place right before you make your sandwich. It keeps your food cold just like a freeze block would! How neat is that? This is what keeps your meat, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onions, etc. cold until your ready. In lab controlled tests, PerfectCHILL was proven to keep contents under 40 degrees for 5 hours and under room temperature for a full 8 hours.

Placing it in the freezer the night before, all I had to do was place my ham on top. Like I said, I didn’t want to try anything extra at first. If you have more ingredients to use,  you can expand the FLEXtech divider. The FLEXtech divider is the part where the bread sits. It has the bread symbol on top. This can push downwards, or upwards just depending on how many ingredients your going to add. I didn’t use a lot of ingredients, so I just kept it pushed downward. The FLEXtech divider creates a water tight barrier, between the fresh moist ingredients and your bread.

Finally, I added the bread above the moist ingredients. Then WHA-LA you have a perfect sandwich! I love that it has a latch to keep the container tight, so no air gets inside to make your bread feel stiff. Your ingredients stay nice and secure. When using sandwich bags, sometimes my ingredients are all over the place. My hubby was just as excited to try this as I was. He took it to work, came home and told me that it was, “Excellent!” He said he didn’t have to worry about the numerous sandwich bags. Especially, not having to worry about cleaning his mess up afterwards! That sometimes gets irritating, when you know your on a time limit for lunch. Now all he has to do, is bring it home to me, and I can easily hand wash it!  Very easy to clean! Saves money and we don’t have to worry about putting the bags in the landfill!

Put the PerfectCHILL tray in freezer the night before, or even hours before making a sandwich!

This is where you will add your moist ingredients (meat, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, onions, etc.)

Bread symbol shows where you place bread. This is also the FLEXtech divider you can push downwards, or outwards depending on the amount of ingredients.

 

This container is BPA and phthalate free plastic which is a HUGE plus! I know I’ll be using it when my daughter starts school. She’ll want a turkey and cheese sandwich! On the first day of using it, I had said previous that I didn’t want to try anything extra. Since then I’ve used a lot of different condiments. I put meat, pickles, lettuce, and onions in the PerfectCHILL tray together. I pushed the FLEXtech divider upwards, because I had more ingredients this time. I even added some mayo to the bread! In the end, we had a perfect soggy – free sandwich! It was delish! You can use this container for numerous items, because of it being an air tight container! I love salad, so that’ll be one I’ll definitely be trying!

This product has definitely amazed me. Therefore, in the end my dreams did come true! No more worrying about soggy sandwiches! I would recommend this to every household, and to at least own one or more! These are great to have around with school starting back. If you don’t have one, your missing out! What are you waiting for? You can buy this for the great price of ONLY $12.99!

Farm Rich Snacks Review & Giveaway *****ENDED*****

Standard

When I was given the opportunity to do a review for Farm Rich, I was really excited! Since I started a family of my own, I’m always looking for meals for the whole family to enjoy! Especially, having a little one around, and always hearing, “I’m hunnngrrrry!” I was sent two coupons to pick out two products of my choice. My store carries about 4 of their products, so I didn’t have a huge selection. I ended up picking out two bags of their, “Mozzarella Sticks”. We ended up buying some pizza sauce to eat with them. I like marinara sauce, but we love pizza sauce with them! These bags have a great quantity too, and for the price you can’t beat it! Most of all, our family thinks the food is delicious!

You can take a bag of these, and add some extra sides, and you’ll have a great dinner for the family! These are also great with school starting back. When my child gets home from school, she always goes straight to the refrigerator! These are easy to fix, and you won’t hear the, “I’m hunnngrrrry!” Farm Rich has a huge selection of products. It varies from store to store on what Farm Rich products they carry. Overall, I would suggest this, if you haven’t tried their products go grab a bag! I think you’ll be very happy!
