Its Time For Spring Cleaning!

Spring is here, and as I mentioned before, I missed Spring. Its just so great and refreshing! With all of this comes something that not may people look forward to, Spring Cleaning. I, on the other hand, am ready for it. We even bought a Hoover Carpet Cleaner that was shipped Friday (hopefully I'll post about it soon). Along with all things Spring, I was sent a "Spring Cleaning" kit from SC Johnson via BzzAgent. It came with the following items:
(1) - Glade Limited Edition Spring Collection Jar Candle 4oz.
(1) - Glade PlugIns Scented Oil Refill
(1) - Pledge Lemon Clean Aerosol Spray
(1) - Scrubbing Bubbles Mega Shower Foamer w/ Extend-A-Clean 20oz.
(1) - Scrubbing Bubble Toilet Cleaning Kit w/ Dispenser & Gel Discs
Now, as a BzzAgent taking part in this BzzCampaign, getting the word out is a must! BUT writing a review on my blog isn't required. However, all the items I was sent as part of the BzzCampaign, I have already bought and used many times (excluding the Scubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaner). I was introduced to the amazing Scrubbing Bubbles (Scrubbles as I call them) products when I started couponing about a year ago. I am STILL stocked up on the Scrubbles Power Spray Bathroom Cleaner. I absolutely love them, they make cleaning my bathroom and vanity much easier. I just spray, wipe, and for 4 continuous days it's water-activated formula continues to work cleaning every time that surface is wet.

The Glade Spring Collection Jar Candle is another new item. I did buy the Spring Collection Premium Room Glade Sprays at Target this past week in the same scent, we've been using them a lot lately. I do prefer the other scent from the Spring Collection, "Bring On The Blossoms". I also just found out that there is another scent in the same collection, "Jump For Joy" featuring orange oil, apple, pineapple, mango and black currant. This particular one is only available at Walmart so I might have to take a trip just to get it because it sounds delicious!

I was also sent a coupon booklet with coupons for various SC Johnson products including Glade, Scrubbing Bubbles, Pledge & more. I will definitely be handing these out to family and friend (especially ones that live on campus, they love their rooms smelling fresh at all times). All these items made me think of what a great idea it would be to make a nice stuffed "Spring is Here" gift basket to gift someone moving to a new home. Huge thanks to BzzAgent and SC Johnson for the kit, but I already am a happy and regular consumer.

If any of you are looking to try any of these products, there are many coupons available on Coupons.com, SmartSource.com, on the product's websites and plenty of coupons inserts. You can also use the WeUseCoupons' Coupon Database to search for a particular coupon and what insert it can be found in.

Disclaimer: I was NOT paid for this post, however I did receive the product in question as part of a BzzAgent BzzCampaign. All opinions are my own and I was in no way obligated to write this review or post my opinions.

Welcome Home! Thank You AVID!

Today I got a call from AVID, the company which my stolen dog was registered with via microchip. I thought they were going to ask me if I had sent it the paper to transfer ownership (long story) but was ecstatic when I heard the representative say "Your dog has been recovered...". They immediately gave me the woman's name and number and I called.

Half an hour later I was picking him up at her house (she runs a dog rescue) about 30min. away from my house. The people that stole him most likely took him to breed but dumped him when they noticed he was neutered. As soon as we got out of the car we saw him and he was barking, whining and howling like crazy. He was so happy to see his family there.

I highly suggest all pet owners microchip their pets and register them. The microchip is the only reason I was able to get him back. When he got home, after his delicious meal, he played with our other little dog and finally met his new little brother, Spock. As soon as Spock is older he'll be able to roam the backyard with his big brother. Having 3 dogs sure is time consuming and a HUGE responsibility, but we couldn't be happier. I'm glad there are good people with pure hearts around. We are glad he is home where he belongs.

Thank you AVID and everyone who kept us in their hopes and prayers.

Thank You All; Our Family Has Grown

First off, I want to thank everyone for their kind words about my stolen dog. All of your comments and personal emails were very thoughtful and some of your emails about how you have been through the same ordeal and got your dog back, brought about new hope. We are continuing to do all we can to look for him but have hopes he will be back soon. However, having a guard dog is a must so we headed off to the nearest shelter with no luck. There were no dogs that my little brother and sister would even consider getting near. So, as a result everyone decided to get a puppy so that they can get comfortable around him as he grows.

Our 3 previous dogs were rescues from shelters and my baby that was recently stolen was uncomfortable around kids. Unfortunately you just don't know a shelter dog's full past which was another reason we decided for the puppy. Its a safety concern for my siblings and I feel good about the decision we made. Puppies are a BIG responsibility but we all look forward to training him and watching him grow. My siblings absolutely love him, and he adores them too.
Our new puppy is a purebred Siberian Husky with the most precious blue eyes and adorable face. We have not decided on a for-sure name but have been calling him "Spock". We named him after Spock from Star Trek because he looks a lot like him, with the pointy ears and all. I hope my baby gets back home to see his new brother. They would go crazy for each other!

Again, thank you all for your kind words, it meant a lot to me.

My 3/12 Walmart Shopping Round-Up (Saved 99%)

This was a quick trip to Walmart. I had absolutely forgotten about the $3/1 Gain coupon and we were low on Dryer Sheets. The cheap dog food was another reason to stop by, along with the fact that we needed a new dog leash and shampoo for our new puppy. The Gain coupon gave overage which practically paid for the dog shampoo & leash :)

Bought (6) Pedigree Wet Dog Food - $0.68 each
-Used (3) BOGO Manufacturer Qs
Bought (8) Gain Laundry Sheets 40ct. - $1.87 each
-Used (8) $3/1 Manufacturer Qs (overage given)
Bought (1) Lay's Potato Chips - $2.50 
-Used (1) Free Lay's Product Manufacturer Q
Bought (1) Franks Red Hot Sauce - $3.12 each
-Used (1) Free Franks Red Hot Sauce Manufacturer Q
Bought (1) Dog Shampoo - $3.44 each
Bought (1) Dog Leash - $3.99 each 
Total - before coupons: $32.09 | after coupons & sale $0.40 (before tax)
Saved: $31.69 -or-  99%*
