Honey Bunches of Oats

Thanks to Purex and Post I received a box of Honey Bunches of Oats to taste and review.  You should have seen the look on the face of Shawn when I opened the "boring" laundry detergent box to find a box of yummy cereal.

Shawn is my primary cereal eater so I tested it out on him and after he inhaled 2 bowls worth he told me that they were yummy.  I just bought another box to try myself because we got the blueberry/banana and I don't do banana but they did look good.  Shawn really liked the crunchy pieces and said that they were sweet enough but not to sweet (if you can believe it my 7yr old will turn down cereals that are too sweet).  This is not the old Honey Bunches of Oats you had years ago this has lots of clusters and the fruit blends has some extra yummyness (is that a word?) in it.

I also received a few coupons for FREE boxes of Honey Bunches of Oats to give to you guys!!  One lucky reader will receive a couple of coupons so they can try out the new fruit blends for themselves.  All you have to do is fill out the super easy Rafflecopter entry form below.  The winner will be posted here and have 24 hours to respond, I will not be emailing the winner so please check back Monday morning!!

I received samples and coupons for this giveaway/review from the generous folks at Purex Insiders and Post.  All opinions are my own however.

Free E-Books

There are lots of great free books available for your Kindle and if you don't have a Kindle you can download the free app for your PC and still take advantage of all the great freebies. I'm going to try and post some books for you at least once a week so you can add to your library. I'll be posting the books in the Amazon widget form so that you can see if they are still free, prices on Amazon change frequently so you'll know before wasting your time!!

Of course I get the widgets and now it's not posting prices.  As of 6:10pm 5/28 these were all free, be sure to check around there are lots of great free books available.  I've got probably 5 years of reading saved on my cloud, kindle and PC and haven't paid for one yet!!

Teacher Gifts

It’s that time of year with Teacher Appreciation week coming to an end and the school year coming to an end very soon many of you are probably thinking about a small gift to give your children’s teacher.

Well I have a fantastic, inexpensive idea for you.  Here’s what you need:

  • 1 clay pot mine was $1.25 at Walmart but with a good sale or coupon it could be cheaper at the craft stores
  • some paint I used paint I had from other projects but noticed that the small bottles at Walmart were .53
  • Floral Tape $1 a roll at Walmart
  • Some fake flowers .94 for a small bouquet with 6 flowers
  • a bag of rice or beans roughly $1 at Walmart
  • a package of ball point pens (you probably have some free ones laying around from when school started)

You may also want to have a flexible measuring tape, a sharpie, chalk, a sponge brush and the hot glue gun

001  Here’s the pot being painted, it took several coats of paint to cover nicely but it honestly didn’t use much out of the jar so you could make several of these without needing to buy more paint.  I may make several to take to the Farmer’s Markets with me in the future.  

004Here’s the completed gift.  We used the measuring tape to help measure out the markings so that the rim looks like a ruler and Shawn wrote a message on the front in chalk.  To make the flower pens I popped the tops off the pens, put some hot glue on the flower stems and shoved them into the pen, then wrapped the pen with floral tape.  Before you add the rice to the pot make sure you tape off the stupid hole in the bottom (this might be experience talking LOL) add your rice and pens and Voila and adorable (cheap) teacher’s gift.   I figure this gift cost me about $4 to make I did have to buy 3 rolls of floral tape but didn’t even use half of one roll so I have plenty for my next project I also bought 3 bouquets of flowers but only used half of them.  I plan on using the rest of the flowers to make more pens and trying to sell them but you could make them up and put them away until you need another gift.
