Rubbemaid Freshworks Produce Saver #Review

We love fresh fruits and veggies in our family but as a money saver I hate when I have to throw out fruits and veggies because they got old before we could eat them. So I was super excited to get to try this new product from Rubbermaid. The claim was that it could make your produce last 80% longer. I was skeptical and had to try it out. We used strawberries first and after about three days the ones in the container and the ones that were still in the store container so I was not impressed because they looked the same. Fast forward three more days and my strawberries in my Rubbermaid container look great- they still have soft leaves on top whereas my store container stored ones have brittle leaves and are starting to show a lot of spots. I was very impressed. They come in three different sizes the one I have is the middle size and it holds the equivalent of one quart of strawberries. There is a smaller one that is for items like blueberries and raspberries. The larger one can hold a head of lettuce. I can't remember what the small one costs but the middle one I saw at Walmart for a little over 10 dollars and the large one was around 16. At first I thought that sounded a little high- but I throwing away less food now so I am eating more of what I am buying so these containers will pay for themselves in less than two months!  I plan to purchase a big one very soon so I can store my grapes in it. I also would like another middle sized one (or five) so nice to store and they look nice in the fridge and are stackable. I am in love with this product! 

Thank you Rubbermaid and Crowdtap for sending me a sample of this to try out for free. All the words here are my own.

Advil Rapid release Formula #Review

I am a runner- which is still almost strange to say seeing as twenty years ago I wanted to be a runner but my knee issues wouldn't let me. These last two years I have ran several 5Ks, 10Ks a 12K and a 15K not to mention a half marathon. The longer I run the more aches I can get when I run. To combat this I will from time to time pop an Advil Rapid Release tablet. I don't have to worry about waiting for it to kick in I just take it and go. I have been very happy with the results and am not in much if any pain when I am running. Next month I will complete my second half marathon. I am excited and I know I won't be leaving home without my Advil.

I was given a free sample in exchange for my review of this product. All the words here are my own.

Mr. Sketch Scented Washable Markers #Review

My girls love their arts and crafts. Kiah and Karis could draw or color all day long. So I knew when Crowdtap was looking for people to use their products I had to try to get these for the girls.
they had a blast using these. Karis worked on a coloring contest sheet and Kiah worked on a project for mother's day. First off though the whole family got in it by guessing what the scents were. That was a fun time and the kids enjoyed trying to figure them out. I thought the markers were great and I remember having a set of these when I was a kid. I feel like they are just newly washable. To me that makes all the difference. Having four kids it's hard to police every move they make with markers so I love having the knowledge that it really doesn't matter they will clean up if they get on to something they are not supposed to be on. The colors worked great and were nice bright and bold. The kids also enjoyed the scents as they were using them. Thank you Crowdtap and Mr. Sketch for the free markers all the words listed here are mine and I was given the sample in exchange for my review.
