Senokot Kindle Giveaway!

Diet, lifestyle, stress and travel are big factors in your health. 
When you make changes in any of them, your body can suffer.
The people at Senokot can help your body adjust. 

From the press release:   

“We created the Senokot®/Senokot-S® Overnight Relief Sweepstakes to provide relief to the millions of Americans who suffer from occasional constipation,” explains Charlene Bailey, Director, Product Management, Purdue Products L.P., a leader in providing products for relief of occasional constipation.  “We also want to remind consumers that Senokot® products are made with a natural vegetable laxative ingredient and provide gentle, overnight relief from occasional constipation.”

Senokot is running a contest where over $50,000 in prizes will be awarded! Winners will be selected daily and at random. As a consumer, you can enter as many times as you would want to by checking out their contest website

Further information from Senokot: 

"According to a survey of 1,150 men and women age 50 or older taking at least one prescription medication for common medical conditions, 84% of those polled didn’t realize that their medication could cause occasional constipation prior to speaking with a healthcare provider.  The survey, conducted by Russell Research for Purdue Products, showed that about one-third of respondents (35%) who were advised about possible side effects of their medications were told occasional constipation might occur with the medication they are taking.1
To help raise awareness about the “burden” of occasional constipation, on September 6, the Senokot® Brand will install a 20’ pill bottle in Penn Station to drive home the point that certain medications can cause occasional constipation, and let consumers know there is relief for this condition.  Consumers will be encouraged to enter the Senokot®/ Senokot-S® Overnight Relief Sweepstakes on-site at Penn Station.  Consumers will also be able to get their picture taken with the “Giant Bottle” and share it with friends and family via social media. "

To celebrate the Senokot/Senokot-S Overnight Relief Sweepstakes, I'm giving away a Kindle Touch 3G!

Pretty cool, huh?

MyBlogSpark: Crayola, General Mills, & Target!

Oh, back to school.

Is there any better time of year?

Well, end of school would probably rank up there but we don't need to discuss that for another... 180 days.

I'm in full swing of back to school. I've got two babies back in school and to top it all off, I'm a teacher this year.

With back to school comes the school supply list and it's not a favorite amongst Moms but Target, Crayola and General Mills have got some great deals for you.

On specially marked boxes (only at Target!) you can find great coupons on participating Big G Cereal Packages. You can also purchase Nature Valley Crunchy Granola Bars (a fave in my house!), Pillsbury Toaster Strudels and find great coupons (up to $5.00) on Crayola products! 

As an added bonus, certain Big G Cereals will have Crayola coloring activity packets and you can obtain even more coupons when you purchase specially marked 64 count Crayola crayons.


These deals are only at Target and only in the month of August so get to shopping!!

To celebrate these fantastic deals, I (along with My Blog Spark) will be giving away a BTS Pack! It includes 

    Your gift pack will contain:
  • A box of Cheerios

Back to School: Mabels Labels


I know that isn’t typically the way review posts are started but the one big thing that comes to my mind when I think of Mabel's Labels is that I love them.

Adore them really.

First off, look at them!

How stinkin’ cute are they?

There’s nothing better than labels for your child’s adorable school supplies than adorable labels.

I know it sounds silly but I really like Mabel's Labels. They are super durable too. I’ve had Mabel's Labels on my oldest child’s lunch box for over a year and it’s still stuck like glue. I love not worrying about them. It’s one less thing from me to fret over in the morning.

Mabel's Labels has labels for anything: bags, clothes, and household products.

I reviewed the new Tween Pack that has three pages of fantastic looking labels.

Info from the website about the Tween Packs:

“Identify with style! These beautifully personalized, shaped labels are designed especially for big kids - whatever their ages! Use them wherever you’d use our waterproof Sticky Labels – they’re just as durable. Available in two themes, each featuring a variety of fun designs and fonts”

You can purchase your own Mabels Labels by visiting their website
