My Statement about Hurricane Sandy

What a year this year has been so far. Many areas across the US and beyond have been affected by nasty weather and other emergencies.
 Hurricane Irene has already flooded out and snowed in many people across the East Coast.
 My area is just now beginning to get the weather. We have bitter cold temps and the rain is just now starting to turn into snow. At this time my area is just expected to get up to 3 inches over night, continuing into Wednesday.  I know that is not as bad or life threatening as it has been to  other areas along the East Coast, and my heart and prayers go out to those being affected and their families.
I have family in Maryland and South West Virginia that are undergoing hard hits . I hope my family and yours stays safe and warm during this devastating weather.
Tip: if you have drafty areas in your house, take newspaper and fold the pages longways, and stick into any gaps in the door or windows. This will help keep the heat in and prevent you from having to turn the heat up [if you have electric heat], saving on your energy bill  a little bit.

New Survey Site - My Favorite!

 Today I want to tell you all about a survey site I recently found.[I have my fiance's best friend to think for this one.]
 The site is called Instant Cash Sweepstakes .  I am not big on taking surveys, even though I am signed up to a LOT of survey sites.  Instant Cash Sweepstakes is by far my favorite. You never get disqualified from a survey- and the surveys are very short - just 3-4 questions. They are more like polls. So how does it work?
 You click any of the Instant Cash Sweepstakes links I have posted in here, and sign up  then you will instantly get surveys to complete.  A lot of the time you will just win tickets and coins. I usually get multipliers which double or triple my tickets and coins. If you get a survey with questions you have answered before and answer it exactly the same as you did before, your winnings will be doubled or tripled, guaranteed.  
   Once you start doing the surveys regularly you will get cash for doing them. I get anywhere between $.01-$.03 at least a few times  a day.  I know that doesn't sound like much, but the cool thing is you can cash out to pay pal once you have earned only $2 !
  They will only let you do so many surveys in a row, and then they will make you take a break and come back in a couple hours for more. So, you basically just spend 5-10 minutes each time , if that .
 So what are tickets and coins for ?  Every day at 8 Pm est they have a drawing for $50 - all of your tickets will automatically be entered for the $50 each day [ so after the drawing you will have 0 tickets until you do your next survey]. You can take your coins and either enter some or all of them into a drawing [which occurs every 4 hours] for $2 , OR you can use them to buy more tickets to be used for the $50 drawing.
 Instant Cash Sweepstakes is the most fun survey site I have ever used, and I don't think a lot of people know about it , so be sure that once you sign up you tell your friends about it - Once they start earning instant cash you will get the same amount of cash that they earn every time - there is no cap on how much you can win from referrals.  You won't get $50 if they win the $50 sweepstakes, but you will win whatever cash they get from surveys, and you will be matched with the $2 if they win it in the drawing.
 I have only been doing it a week and have almost gotten the $2 to cash out with, and am earning more and more tickets each day towards the $50.  I typically have anywhere between 1500 tickets [without using my coins to buy more] and have had up to 10,000 tickets [using my coins to buy more] entered for the big draw.
   Have I convinced you yet? If so, sign up by clicking HERE and start earning cash today! Be sure to tell your other frugal friends, and if you have any questions, ask away and I will help as much as I can!

Have Naturally curly hair? This is for US!

  I have been posting many giveaways from NaturallyCurly .I have been doing so because I  have naturally curly hair, which can go from looking nice and smooth  to kinky and unruly within 3o mins, depending on the situation. I have tried several frizz- eaze or smoothing products, and even curl enhancers. Honestly, nothing really WORKS. Maybe it's  because I won't pay over $7 for something I haven't already tried. However, once I found Naturallycurly I knew I had found the perfect website for me and other naturally curly haired ladies out there. I suffer from frizz on a daily basis, which takes away from my curls. And tangles- oh my! I can brush/comb my hair and style it, and 30 mins- 1 hr later there's tangles all in it again.
   NaturallyCurly is having 31 days of giveaways and today is day 15.
  Today's Prize is sponsored by Curly Solutions:

  • Curl Keeper 8oz.
  • Slip Detangler 8oz.
  • Silk Shampoo 8oz.
  • Roller Jaw Clamp 12pk.
  • 5 Curl Keeper 1oz.pks.
There will be 2 prizes, with a value of $62 each

Packaways Plastic Storage Boxes -Review

I recently received this package for review

I was expecting to receive these reusable plastic storage boxes, but was quite surprised at the size of boxes Packways sent to me . 
    They come in all different sizes and colors. I love these bright ones I got.  The coolest thing about these boxes is that you can easily fold them flat for storage . I have all kinds of "stuff" that I had sitting around with no real place to go. I am constantly changing decor and moving things around, so these really come in handy.  When you are ready to use them you simply press on the corner and it automatically folds into place and locks. When empty, just press on the bottom and it folds flat.  These are great for small spaces, storing your seasonal clothes , holiday decorations or anything you can think of.    These also have  2 wipe away panels on them that you can write on with erasable markers . Always know what you have packed away, and when you empty it and put different stuff in the box all you have to do is erase and re- write your contents.  Sure beats brown boxes and duct tape!
           Packaways also has smaller sizes including totes and under the bed boxes.
    ToteUnder Bed

All of their packaway boxes are made in the U.S.A. from durable corrugated plastic, which makes them great for harsh conditions or  long-term storage since moisture and humidity won't effect the integrity of the boxes.
These boxes are more affordable than those big bulky "other" plastic containers that tend to take up so much space [and not fashionable!] If you would like to learn more or check out all their products check out their site: Packaways.com
     I found these boxes to be very good quality and look forward to purchasing some of the totes from them in the future.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
