My Blog

My blog has morphed over the years into different things. It is a place to learn about saving money, product reviews, cooking, gardening, and homesteading. It can take you to whatever has my attention at the moment and then back to the day to day. I hope you will learn something here and come back often.

So Easy, Even Your Husband Can Do It!

Laundry is one of those chores that fall solely on me.  My husband is a super smart guy but a bewildered look crosses his face when I even mention the idea of him putting on a load of laundry.  But now, I have the solution!  Purex NO SORT!

Now, Purex No Sort is not a miracle worker.  If you have new, brightly colored clothes you do not want to put them in with your whites but once they have been washed a few times separately you should not have the bad color bleeding accidents like before.  Purex No Sort has a dye transfer inhibitor that traps dyes so they will not settle on other fabrics.

Purex brand sent me a free sample to try out so here is the before pics:

I added a little red, blue, green, yellow, light gray, etc to this load.  Normally, I would not wash these together.  And, this is what I got: 

No bleeding stains at all!  I like the idea of no more sorting!  I do believe my husband and kids can do this!!

I have a couple of free coupons to give away if you would like to let your husband try laundry duty!  Email me at  3 winners will be drawn.

Mom's Night Out ~ The Movie

I LOVE being a Mom!  I have 2 wonderful boys that are truly the light(s) of my life.  I don't think anyone would ever say that being a Mom is easy though.  The only thing I know that is harder is being a Homeschool Mom!

You see, Homeschool Moms do not get breaks.  We don't have a commute to work where we can choose to listen to the radio or enjoy the peace and quiet for a few minutes.  We don't get a lunch break where someone else cooks the food and places it on the table in front of us and we certainly don't get sick days!!

I know that being a working Mom is not easy either.  I have been there too and I know the difficulties and the sacrifices that must be made so please don't feel like I'm belittling what you do.

                The bottom line is BEING A MOM IS HARD and sometimes we need a break!! 

That's why I am super excited to offer you the chance to win a night out for you and four of your friends to see MOM'S NIGHT OUT. Just click here to register.

I was actually invited to a screening of this movie and I can tell you, It Is GREAT!  I can't wait for it to come out on Mother's Day weekend so I can take my family and friends.  You can see a sneak peak of it here
