I'm hoping everyone had a great Labor Day weekend! As kids
make their way back into the classrooms, you can hear that
collective sigh from parents around the world. That sigh of
"after 3 months I have time to myself!"
If you're a teacher you're just getting back to work, how would you
like a free planner and folder samples? It's
one less thing you have to buy for the classroom. Just fill
in the form and pick the products you need (a school name is
required). Teachers can also get a free 24x36 "Huddle up with
a good book" poster. School name and address are required
on the form.
Now is a great time to get a free family portrait from Walmart.
I hope your hungry because this seems to be the week for food
freebies. If your lucky enough to have a Rita's Italian Ice near you, stop by and get a free
sample of their newest Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Ice Cream flavor. Carvel Ice Cream is hosting Customer
Appreciation Day on Thursday, 9/20 from 3pm - 7pm and you can get a
free Jr. Bonnet cone.
This next one is huge, Papa
John's is giving away over 2 million pizzas! That's 120,000
free one topping each week until December 31st in a random drawing.

I'm headed home to Arizona for the 4th of July, and am already dreading pictures next to my younger sister, who looks like she's spent the last few months poolside.

animals. And plenty of companies still use chemicals and fillers in
their cosmetics even though organic, cruelty-free alternatives exist.
when I found out that my makeup was full of chemicals once tested on
bunnies, I decided to make the switch to cruelty-free natural cosmetics.
Here are some of my favorite brands.
Buying natural aluminum free deodorant can be pricey. In the
past, I've purchased Tom's of
Maine deodorant and it runs at least $5 for one stick. I
have found that I can save money and eliminate chemicals that are
