Review of Last Week

I am so bummed. I had my laptop in the shop but the man said it needs a new motherboard and would cost $300 to fix. Its only a year and a half old but now they are so cheap it just isn't worth buying a motherboard to fix it with. So I am going to have to save up for a new laptop. He did get my battery fully charged on it so I can save my files to a couple thumb drives though so that is a blessing.

We did have one of those great coupon revelation moments though. A couple of weeks ago, Kroger had a sale on Lysol Wipes. They were on sale for $1.99 but if you bought 5 you got $5 off so that made the sale price .99 for each roll. I had coupons for .50 off 2 so that made them be .50 a canister. Yesterday we were going through the store and the Lysol Wipes were back to their original price of $2.99. My oldest and I talked about how much nicer it was to only pay .50 and stock up so we didn't have to pay $2.99. There are only 5 in this picture but we really bought 6.
I also got a product sample in the mail to test out and then do a survey on. Its not a review but one of those anonymous survey things. I also got a really cool back to school lunch box kit called Kroger Lunchbox Heroes from Bzz to try out. Naturally the grandbabies were thrilled. We got a package of cheese flavored peanut butter filled pretzel bites and 4 coupons for free products plus a slew of coupons off the products to share with friends. I love Bzz and have gotten a lot of really great products from there to review and try out.

Here are the great prizes I won last week- I sure do appreciate all the wonderful blogs and their sponsors. Winning products makes my life so much better since it saves me money, and lets me try product that I otherwise wouldn't be able to.

A coupon for a box of Borax from Nikki Knack's Reviews- I love Borax and use it to make my detergent.

A children's book called The Ruby Red Slippers from Women's Intution- I think my oldest granddaughter will love to read this one with me.

A coupon for a bar of Fels Naptha soap from Looking forward to becoming more frugal

Blog Giveaways I have won

My laptop has been out of commission since the beginning of April, so that has really slowed me down on entering giveaways. I am having to use an older model desktop and it is just superslow. All video's cause this desktop to hang so I do a lot of plugin-container.exe closing :). I finally have my laptop in the shop so now just waiting on it to get fixed. I am slowly entering a few giveaways have again though. I have won a few so far but not as frequently as I was winning. I am not entering like I was because of this desktop but its all good and will work out in the end. I am going to be super busy this week. I got a call Thursday from a marketing group who had seen my profile on NARMS and wants me to help with a grocery reset this week at one of my local stores. I was thrilled to get the call since I really could use the extra money. I need to get my oldest a set of glasses and we haven't been able to afford the exam.

Last week I won the following prizes- I guess I can watch the DVD while doing all that laundry :)
