How I got ALL of Christmas for FREE last yr.- Pt.2

One word :
   Swag Bucks
  I did not use swag bucks at all when I first signed up. I just really didn't get how great it was.  My sister was telling me how she bought all of her school books off of Amazon , with money she earned on Swag Bucks. We know how expensive college  books can be.
    Around late October early November I was out of work and Christmas was almost here. I decided I had to earn some money for Christmas presents. I did spend A LOT of time with Swag bucks it seemed, but no more than a few hours at the start of the day , and off and on throughout the day.  I was earning 5 gift cards [ at 450 swag bucks each] every week .  You are only allowed to cash in on 5 on any same denomination for one company. I typically got    5 $5 gift cards . At one point I had a couple of active referrals, which helped- I got bucks whenever they won searching , but once you get 1,000 total bucks from that person you won't earn anymore from them. So the more active people you have , the faster you are going to be able to cash in. During those months I got 5 $5 Amazon Gift Cards and  either 1 $10 card or a 1 $20 Gift Card. a month .So I made anywhere from 25-40 bucks a week to spend on Amazon.  I love Amazon because I can find anything I wanted on there, and Had a promo code for Free Amazon Prime, so I got free two- day shipping on all of my Christmas presents . [ Been looking for one recently, and haven't come across one - hopefully right before Christmas ]

 The easiest and fastest way to earn Swag bucks is by doing these four things :

1) Daily Poll
2) NOSO  - skip all the offers, and put in word at the end
3) search the web using their browser.  Give it a few tries and then you will get a message that you won swag bucks. You generally have to confirm this or enter a captcha.  Be sure to share on your timeline, because that is a good way to get people to sign up under you.

You won't get search wins back to back,  go back after a few hours and  search again . Most days you can get at least 3 wins just for searching [ sometimes more!]

4) Watch videos. You get swag bucks every time your meter gets full [ usually after watching 30 seconds of about 8 videos or so ].

You get $50 Bucks for your Birthday

They don't spam you. I never get emails other to confirm when I cashed in for gift cards, and when it's available.  Or on my birthday. I never buy anything to get swag bucks in return, although there are many options to do so for people who like to online shop  and has the card to do it. 

 You can get swag bucks just for printing their coupons . [once coupons are redeemed in stores]. The possibilites are endless, and you can earn a lot, or just enough. 

   You won't need a credit card this Christmas if you start earning now , trust me.  You don't have to choose between the bills or presents.Pay the bills with the paycheck, and Get Gift Cards to your favorite stores or Amazon and get all the presents for FREE.  However, if you really need the cash , you can also get PayPal Gift Cards and have the cash put straight in the bank or on your prepaid card .

Are you ready to sign up and start earning? Click here :Sign Up. Take 10 minutes and make some money today.  If you have any questions ask away and I will help the best I can.
 Everyone who leaves a comment will be entered  to win the $10 Sephora Gift Card I won yesterday [ along with the people who commented on the Getting to know me ]

 Just comment telling me if you already use Swagbucks, or if you just signed up :) Get entries in before 8PM est . Winner will be emailed after Once Upon A Time and Revenge Go off :)

Getting to know me and my page

Hi there,
  My name is Tammy- Blog & Page Owner,Admin. I do everything myself.
 That's why some days there are little to no posts, or a lot dispersed  throughout the day.

   I started this blog because I love getting freebies and wanted to share what I find with other freebie lovers.It started out with me always having free items I find sent to both me and my Mom because she's not on Facebook . She is a loyal customer to most of the companies that offer high value coupons or free products and samples, so I don't feel like she should have to miss out on these great deals that could help her save some money on products she's spent a lot of money on over the years. So I use my Facebook or my fiance's Facebook to send her the same things I get . Just depends on what the official rules are for everything. 

 * Most freebies have the rule that one prize/coupon per person per email and/or facebook account and per address. 

If it's one per Facebook user , I will use my fiance's Facebook  name to have it sent to my Mom's house for her. I don't see that as being dishonest since I am only getting the one free item [using my personal Facebook].People  should never enter in contests using their Facebook Page name ;only from their personal page; and follow what the rules say.

 Whoever said that "Nothing in life is free" just hadn't met me. 
 I know there are a lot of different pages and blogs out there, and I am here to tell you what makes Me different from the rest: *please continue reading- I know I am very detailed, or wordy .. hence my blog name.

  When I say FREE, I mean free- no shipping or handling= $0 Total. This is why you may not see a lot of "freebie" posts from me.. I check ALL FREE links that I post to make sure they work and are really free. I do post non free items , such as low cost shipping only, or low cost item with free shipping. You also won't see a lot of coupons posted here. Why? Well, I just don't have the patience for couponing. I am not an extreme couponer ; but I do follow blogs that are;so I always look for High Value coupons for myself, because after reading their scenarios I will learn who has what on sale so that I will know where to use my High Value coupon at to get the items FREE or really cheap. I only share the work that I did- which was find the High Value coupon. I will tell you where it is on sale at too if I know.  If match-ups are something that you are interested in but can never remember which site you follow that does them, leave me a comment and I will tell you my favorite sites for coupon/store match-ups. and you can search for their Deals with store match-ups . Yeah, it gets complicated, that's why I will stick with what I know best, but will always search to find ya the best one (s) to follow.

Please remember that most of what I post is personally typed out for you. I don't copy and paste much, but do Tag the Brand or business page where I find the freebies . This means you will need to:

 1.) click their name , which is a link to their page; or click on the bottom of my post where the link by the picture is. 

2.) LIKE the page. That is always a must . Don't try to get something for free and not even be a fan of the page. That's disrespectful to that brand, in my opinion.

* Freebies sometimes can take as long as 8 weeks to get to you, especially if it was a big giveaway [ thousands of samples or products sent out, instead of just a few hundred], or if you are new at getting freebies.  It will take a few months to get your first freebie in the mail, unless it is a small giveaway with only a few hundred or select number winning the freebie [ then you will get it in the mail anywhere between a few days to about 2-3 weeks.] 

Find the Giveaway Tab at the top of the page or a link in a post on their page for the giveaway.
  *posting your info in a comment on my page will not get you the freebie. Posting your email address or mailing address on their page anywhere will not get you the freebie, and is not safe for you - think possible identity theft. 
Always read the company's most recent post [look at the time they posted it] and follow the directions on how to enter.  If they use the giveaway tab, I will direct link you to the entry form so that can like the page and sign up quickly.

3.)Read the rules, they will tell you when products will be shipped, if you will get an email, or any kind of conformation if you win. 
4) Tell them thank you for the freebie .. and don't get attitude if you don't win, because they didn't have to offer anything for free at all. Chances are they will do another giveaway on a different day.  The more you enter, or the faster you are- the best chances you have to win or snag the prize.

* Please do not unlike  the company page. After all, if it was a brand you didn't like you wouldn't want the free product or coupon anyways.. Would you? Most big name companies have multiple freebies, coupons and giveaways throughout the months, seasons .weeks and days, so keeping them in your feed gives you more chance of getting freebies! 

5) Pay attention to my post, and see if it says I shared a link. Click the word link, this will take you straight to where you need to go to read how to enter- This is their post on the Their Facebook Page.

The only time you will ever receive an item straight from me is if I state that I will be mailing it or emailing it to you.  If it is email , I will do so within 24 hours from the time the Giveaway ended . If it is Post Office Mail, I will tell you the day I ship them which is usually within 1-3 days, depending on the day the giveaway ends.

I will never do a month long giveaway unless it is a blogger giveaway, which means a lot of bloggers will all be posting the same giveaway with the same raffle-copter which means a LOT of entries .  I don't personally enter a lot of those giveaways myself because I usually feel like I don't have as much of a chance to win, and it's not something I really Need . I also don't enter in big ticket items, and rarely will host a high ticket giveaway for my blog or other bloggers. That doesn't mean never though.
I am never going to invest my personal money into getting any freebies or prizes. [Unless it's a product or item I would already be purchasing, and at a small price w/ free shipping]

If I do "pay" to do or host a blogger giveaway  it would be paid with Gift Cards that I earn for FREE, and something I know would interest my readers. I will only host Giveaways that aren't for free prizes for companies that have decent prices, or something that would make a good gift, depending on the season. 

I post reviews ONLY on items that I have personally tried out or used myself. I post honestly , even if it's not that great of an opinion. After all, it's just my opinion. I will only do product reviews that are  requested directly from the company  and that I have received a sample of . Not only is this my compensation, but I cannot give an honest review without having tried the product, or seen it myself- and I can't have a real opinion . That's what a review is supposed to be. I won't work with shady people who won't provide email addresses or links to the direct site. 

This makes mine and your  experiences with the brand or company that much better. 

I will have giveaways sponsored by other companies.  Currently, I prefer small business giveaways because I know those people are consumer friendly, and look to the winners and entrants of a giveaway as potential customers. Most of these businesses will do giveaways and games  as well where you can get freebies. I have won several samples,coupons and great products this way.  Several will offer discounts for purchases as a prize. I generally don't like to do this unless I know that page will be having freebies on their page - doesn't matter how small ... this gives everyone a chance to sample something before having to buy. In most cases turns into a new customer, who is going to Want that discount prize . 
 All my giveaways are done using raffle-copter, so a giveaway [from me] could be anywhere from a couple days to a week. A *flash* giveaway  will be anywhere from 2-4 hours.  I do not hand - pick the winners [ unless I do a comment contest in the future]. They are picked by Random.Org automatically on the raffle-copter.

If I do a review and/or giveaway from Tomoson [this will always be disclosed at the bottom of the blog post], then I received an item for free from the company directly [generally the CEO or owner]. I will post my own pictures of the item, and anything they require me to in return. All items you say you do must be done, or prize is forfeited if you were picked as a winner.The prizes will be sent from the company to you directly. I will provide them with your email and/or mailing address within 24 hours after I receive it from you. You may get emails from them when it ships, and you will get an email from me when/if I know it has shipped. I am not responsible for when they ship the item, how long it takes to receive it,  or anything else. Once I have said the item is shipped, my relationship with the company has ended , until  possible later reviews. I will do my best to make sure you receive the products that I have reviewed for them get to you .

Always leave a comment when you have received an item you won from my page , please.

  Shew- I know, that was a lot of talking! I'm about done, I promise.

I will also share recipes , crafts, tips, and other things cool or funny or budget friendly on my page and sometimes blog.

To everyone who made it to the end of this post : Thanks for reading, and I hope this makes you appreciate and understand my page and blog better. 

    If you use Sephora products and would like to have the $10 gift card I won from them       yesterday, leave a comment under this post . Tell me what you will use the $10 on from Sephora and I will pick a winner by this time tomorrow . That way everyone has a chance to comment that would like to have it. 
Winner will be emailed to email addy used when commenting, so be sure to look for the post from me titled  " Check your Email. See if you are a winner".  Please comment back within 6 hours to let me know you got the code.  [ Be sure to check spam box!]

How I Bought ALL of my Christmas FREE last year - Pt.1

 I don't know about you guys, but every year around this time I start to get anxious when I see the christmas stuff going up in the stores.  Summer is barely over, but Christmas is right around the corner..90 days away, to be exact. I know , I know - who wants to be thinking about that NOW? After all, we still have Halloween [for those who participate] and Thanksgiving to make it through.  Let's face it- the economy has gotten worse , and it's gotten harder for  a lot of people [myself included] to be able to afford Christmas gifts. Last year I was out of work when Christmas was only a month away and was getting sick trying to figure out how in the world I was going to be able to get Christmas for my kids. That's when my sister told me about a couple sites she used to earn money with. I spent HOURS a day on the net earning Amazon Gift Cards and Pay Pal Cash , and within that month I had enough money saved up to buy EVERYONE's Christmas gifts - I even got to splurge more than I had the year before!! However, after spending so much time doing what became "work" I got a little burned out on it all, and told myself that "next year" [now current time] I would start earning and saving at least 4 months in advance. Think of how much more I would be able to do with that time frame to save!
 With that being said, I am going to share the BEST sites I have come across - and use daily where you can earn FREE Money for your holiday shopping.  These do require dedication , but only a little bit of your time each day that you would otherwise be spending online Facebooking or something anyway. Several of you may already use the tools I am going to discuss, and if you do - GREAT! Please leave comments so that those who haven't tried them out yet will get to hear how great they truly are!

The first one I want to talk about is SuperPoints Network.  This site is all about connecting friends to earn rewards. You can earn all kinds of different gift cards[I always get Amazon], Pay Pal Cash , electronics, toys and even cars.  This is an invite only Network.  When you join via an invite that person becomes your "sponsor", and depending on their member level can earn points when you do. Your member level is based upon your network. The more people in your network, the more you can earn, and the faster you will be able to cash in your points.  How do you earn points? The only things I have been doing for the past year is checking my email - The only email you will ever get is points emails. I usually get 1-2 a day . It will simply say you have points and you click the link to claim your points. Easy huh? The other way I earn points is by spinning the Super Lucky Button. It depends on your level as to how many spins you get. I am still just a basic member , so I get 30 spins a day. Some days I only win once in 30, but today I won 3 x's for a total of 15 points.  You can also watch videos and do surveys if you want to .I have earned enough for one gift card a month just by spinning and claiming my emailed points.  I have an invite code for anyone who would like to join the SuperPoints Network.   Follow this link   . The code is good for the first 10 people who click on it.  If you claim it, please comment on this post  and after they are claimed I will make a post for you all to leave invite links and help grow your network!  
           Tune in tomorrow - I will tell you all about my most favorite site to earn from!

Easy [and cheap] DIY Charlie Brown Costume for Baby

  This post is for reader Priscilla Hill, and anyone else who may be interested in dressing up your baby or toddler as Charlie Brown for Halloween.
    Halloween costumes can be expensive , and when you have a baby or toddler it just doesn't seem right to spend a small fortune on something they will only be able to wear once. After a little searching I was able to find a post on to make the costume yourself, while saving a lot of money.

Here's what you will need :

1) A basic yellow t-shirt or onesie [ anywhere from a couple bucks - $6 for a pack of 3 or more from walmart or k-mart]
2)  Pair of black pants or shorts [ just a few dollars, if you don't already own]
3) black felt
4) double- sided tape, hot glue gun or needle and thread :)
5) Snoopy Plush toy  *optional*

total spent shouldn't be more than $10-$12  [ the cheapest "costume " I found was $14.95 with $4.97 shipping, making it  $19.92]

If you don't already have a Snoopy plush , I found this really cute ty beanie baby on Amazon :
Ty Beanie Baby Snoopy with Soundpriced at $5.99 w/ free shipping. Get it here : TY Beanie Baby Snoopy w/ Sound 

Ok, so onto the costume:

Cut the felt into zig zag shapes and adhere onto the yellow shirt or onesie  using double - sided tape, a glue gun or sew them on.

It should then look something like this
Peanuts Charlie Brown Costume Yellow Infant Baby Onesie Romper
Add the black pants or shorts, and have baby holding snoopy- and Viola! You have an inexpensive , easy to make Charlie Brown costume!

Here's a cute pic I find to show the overall look  :

Krazy Candle Review and Giveaway

I recently got the opportunity to try out some soy tarts from a new  family owned and operated business named Krazy Candle.
If you are wondering what Soy Tarts are [as I did].. They are also known as wax melts and are hand poured from all natural soy , made from soy beans exclusively from U.S. farmers.
  Here are the sample tarts I was sent

I immediately loved the way they were packaged with the bow up top. These are the scalloped tarts with the Hawaaiin Breeze Fragrance.They are two- toned which I love! They come in LOTS of different shapes and scents.
 Their newest this Month are Paw Prints & the Flower Tart [shown below]
Paw Print Tarts - 6 Pack - Click Image to Close [4 pack $4]   Flower Tart - 1 Pack - Click Image to Close[single.$.99]

 I was very excited to start melting my tart because I love the Hawaaiin Breeze scent.  As it was melting, I noticed something else I LOVED -
I can't help it , I just love glitter, and I have never seen glitter in tarts before . I love this fragrance. It is a nice, soft summery scent and isn't very perfumey at all. I  could smell the scent through the wrapper before I even opened it. While melting, it  has a nice soft scent that I notice when I walk in the room and it isn't over powering. 

Krazy Candle not only sells the Soy Tarts, but also sells Soy Candles and Tart Warmers. Their prices are VERY affordable and the items quite unique. You can view the complete catalog here :Krazy Candle Catalog
I Love this new cupcake Soy Candle - Perfect for a birthday Gift!

Have you UnJunked your Candy Yet? Unreal Candy Review

 Being a Bzz Agent Member I get to try all kinds of new things. This campaign for Unreal Candies has been one of my favorite . I tried  # 55 which was the chocolate covered peanuts. These were SO good! Tasted just like m&m's ,without all the sugar and other junk. I felt a little guilty when I tried them because I had just started my diet , but I didn't feel as guilty as I would have if I had at some junked up junk food.
 I picked up my candy at my local Walgreen's . I know they have them there and CVS, and will be selling at more stores soon. They are very inexpensive, and so worth trying if you want to have a sweet snack with out all the bad stuff. Next on my list to try is the peanut butter cups.
 To find out more about this product, visit their website at Get Unreal. If you have already tried this, which is your favorite- and what do you think of the unjunked candy?

Isaac : Our Touch of the storm...

We are getting our Part of Hurricane Isaac right now. This was my sky about 45 mins ago.


I was sitting here working on some web design for a family owned small business that is opening in my area on Monday when I heard a sound like someone was outside. My back door [which I had locked] had been pulled open by the wind. Leaves were blowing everywhere and tree limbs were swaying.

I ran outside and got these pictures.

                      Luckily, my DH got home from work before the weather got bad.

We got high winds [briefly] and  a storm that made me and my DH both scream when the power went out [not loudly].
      The power was only off  long enough for me to light a candle then it came back on.
 Now we are just getting some rain and the skies have lightened up.

   When the tv came back on the news was  talking about the areas Hurricane Isaac had hit really hard. That's when I looked at my DH and said "This is our part of Isaac. Thank God it's not like what some people got." His reply was: "I was just telling Slinky [our hairy child] that Mommy needs to get off the computer and come in here with us, and then the power went off". ... Men!
    Although,  I was on here when he left for work and I am back on here when he got home.
In my defense , It's not my fault he chose to not sleep when he had to be at work early.
[he would have only had 4 hours of sleep since he closed last night and had to  open today]. I slept for 7 hours after he left  while he was working his 10 hour shift today.
    My heart goes out to those along the Gulf who were affected by Hurricane Isaac, and I hope everyone has found safety . I know this had to be devastating on so many levels, and my prayers are with them and their families.
    I am interested to know how this storm has affected my readers. Please leave your comments and photos if you would like to share.
