Purex Triple Action liquid detergent

I am usually a detergent snob- if you come to my house you will see a lot of Tide. I think it's because that is what I remember growing up and I enjoy the scents and think it works well. Recently I was able to try Purex's new Triple action liquid detergent. I was impressed! It worked for me just as well as the other brands and it is CHEAPER! Who isn't looking for a way to save money these days? My bit thing with detergent is always the scents. This product comes in five scents I can't wait to go to the store and smell them all. They also have a free and clear option for those of you with kids who need a more gentle detergent. I am sold I will continue buying this product. I will probably keep my Tide but when I can't find a sale on it I will be looking to use this product!

* Purex provided a free sample of their Triple Action laundry detergent so I could write a review. However, all of the opinions expressed here are my own

Cool App

Ok so I had a terrible experience with I had received a gift card from the Disney rewards program and for some reason their website didn't like it so they charged my credit card. I was also mad because I had ordered a set for each one of the kids and two weeks after the order they informed my that Kiah's did not ship. So I was pretty upset. I emailed them three times and after five phone calls with nothing getting solved (each of these calls lasting about 20-30 minutes) I remembered something I had read in Reader's Digest about a new app called GRIPE, now I do not have a smart phone but you can use apps on facebook. I did not know this until about 3 months ago. What you do is you say what your problem is and with who AND what you want them to do to fix it. And somehow they link it to your facebook friends and their friends or something. The company then has 48 hours to resolve your issue. If it meets your expectations it doesn't get launched but if it does it said in my case 56,000 people would hear that they shouldn't shop here. AMAZING. Within MINUTES of posting it I had a phone call they could not get it figured out from there the next morning I got another phone call they had credited my credit card back and let me keep the pajamas. This was exactly what I had asked for. I thank GRIPE for fighting my case for me and I am thankful that the disney store did end up giving me what I asked for. I just want people who read this to know that the disneystore operators I some of the nicest phone operators I had ever had to deal with. I was very frustrated and they were very nice and Tried to help although they couldn't get it to work out for me. Will I shop with them again? Probably not online since this did take up about 6 hours of my life. But I am glad for the fact that it all worked out in the end. I think anyone who has a problem should use this site. I was VERY VERY impressed. Did ya'll notice I learned how to use the link thing on my blogs? So excited by that I have been meaning to use that for a long time!!

Had such a great weekend! Spent it with my friend Jessica in Wichita, we got to stay at a nice house for free (thanks to the people involved with that SOOO MUCH!) and we did a lot of shopping. We ended the trip with a visit to Old Navy because I had won a party from one of the companies that I do projects with. This one has become my very favorite of all of them lately as they have allowed me to host some awesome parties. The company is Crowdtap if you would like to sign up let me know and I will send you an invite you. Tonight's party was for us to find out more about Old Navy's winter products. First we decided to go for the whole ski bunny look. I LOVED the new Techno hats that Old Navy has you can plug your MP3 Player into them and they have built in ear buds or something. Plus these hats come in the awesomest brightest colors ever. I also tried on a pair of their fleece pants and they were so warm and cozy. Probably the higlight of my first outfit though was the vest. It was the brightest pink and so not puffy I don't own a vest because of puffing issues but this vest did not have that. The second outfit we tried on was our outdoors'y outfits. We grabbed plaid shirts from the men's department and were suprised by how nice they looked on us girls! Then we found some boots that were REALLY warm. I think Jessica even got to do a sales pitch to a few customers on how comfortable and warm the boots were. We all got to take home a sweater and pair of jeans for our time. I didn't realize Old Navy had so many different cuts of jeans, not only styles but different waist lengths. I just wish I would have figured out that part BEFORE we left the store. We all also go a scarf and I am excite to wear mine! THANK YOU OLD NAVY AND CROWDTAP for such an awesome time!!!!!

Dec 3rd

One month off from my blog wow this always seems to happen when I get busy! My mailbox has been full of goodies lately, I have also been picked to host a lot of parties lately. I have never ever had this many so it's been a bit crazy but I enjoy all the free stuff I usually get and I also enjoy getting to give people free stuff. My latest party was for the new Smurfs movie. I wasn't that impressed with what I got (as incentive which was basically nothing) but it was still fun to have friends over and do a few fun projects with the kids. We had a bunch of blue food (yummy blue popcorn) and the kids made some smurfs hats. I can't wait to get that picture loaded. The company who allowed me to have this party is AWESOME I have also been able to host two Old Navy "parties" where I got to get myself and a friend old navy gear, last time it was active wear and this time (next weekend) I get to take three people with me to get a free sweater, pair of pants and a scarf. How fun is that. I never buy new clothes for myself so I love being able to go shopping and it's going to be girls weekend for me and a friend and I am SOOO excited to get to spend some time with her and get to know her better. If you are interested in the company, I only hold the name out because if you ask me to sign you up I get some points, but I LOVE this company!!!
