Jump Rope & Hoops for Heart

Schools across America will be raising money for the American Heart Association through their Jump Rope for Heart & Hoops for Heart programs. Next month my daughter's school will be participating, so she is currently fundraising! I love this program, it's such a great opportunity for kids to learn about heart health and about giving back to help others. My daughter is beyond excited about the event and has been doing an excellent job in telling people about what she's doing. If you'd like to make a donation to the American Heart Association, click here. Thank you!

Tropicana OJ plus Vitamin C & Zinc

So my latest BzzCampaign from BzzAgent is the new Tropicana orange juice with extra Vitamin C & Zinc. I was pretty sure I was going to hate it, I've tried juice with extra stuff added like this before and I've never been a fan. I accepted the invite to join the campaign a while ago and had actually forgot that the juice was even coming. It was some kind of kismet I think because I was just coming down with a cold. Now don't get me wrong, this stuff isn't going to cure anything, but liquids are always good when you're sick and the extra Vitamin C & Zinc, well they certainly weren't going to hurt.

I poured a small glass, and was pleasantly surprised. It tasted really good. It was nothing like the other orange juice with added vitamins that I had tried in the past. Since finishing off that original free bottle, I have purchased 3 more bottles. The price is comparable with other OJ brands and it's been in stock every time I've looked for it. I found it at Kroger, but I'm sure it's available in most places.

**EDIT** Apparently the sentence above (now highlighted in bold print) did not suffice as full disclosure. So, I received a bottle of Tropicana OJ plus Vitamin C & Zinc for free to try in exchange for my honest opinion.

Free 8x10 Print at Walgreens

Admittedly, I'm not a huge fan of Walgreens. I had too many problems with their pharmacy to frequent the one near me when the cleaner, more efficient, CVS is just as close and open 24 hours. However, now and then Walgreens has this offer for a free 8x10 print and that's pretty cool. Usually the offers seem to be for one day only, but this code is good through November 28. Use code 1FREE8X10 at checkout for your free print. You'll have to pick it up in store to avoid the shipping fee, though in my experience it's usually only about $1 so sometimes that's worth saving the trouble of driving to the store.

Cartwheel Kids Clothes Savings at Target

Right now the target app Cartwheel has a 20% off all Circo brand girls clothes. This works in the clearance rack too! I just bought my daughter a bunch of new clothes and paid no more than $7 for any one item. Most were under $3.00!
There are some other savings offers too for boys clothing and toddler clothing too!
If you've never even used Cartwheel, it's free and you can save tons. Since downloading the app I've saved a total of $542.72! That's a lot of money for nothing!

I Love Ulta

I have an addiction. It's makeup. I love trying new brands and finding great products. I shop at Ulta, probably more than I should, but after my separation and now divorce, looking good just makes me feel better. So I figure on a scale from harmless to rock bottom time for rehab, this makeup addiction is on the benign end of the spectrum. One of the things I love most about Ulta is their rewards program. I earn points for every purchase and those points are worth cash off of future purchases. The points never expire, so that's nice too. It's free to join and right now you can get a coupon for $10 off your next purchase just for signing up!
