Growums Review and Giveaway

Do you have children who are interested in gardening, helping the environment and learning new skills?  My family and I love experimenting in gardening and teaching our son all about nature and the environment.  We have tried to start our own herb garden (mostly as a way to save a little extra money) and tried to get our son involved, but it was a slow go.  It was tough to get it started and without proper instructions (on how to pot) it really didn’t work out to well and he lost interest very quickly… needless to say my son was bummed out!

However, we have found an amazing company that sells gardening kits just for children and teaches them how to grow vegetables and herbs from seed to harvest.

Growums sells pre-made gardening kits that include everything you need to start planting your very own vegetables and/or herbs.  With 6 available kits the fun is endless!  Not only do you receive the wonderful kit, Growums has an on-line tutorial to help your kids every step of the way!

"This interactive gardening kit is the first of its kind.  Growums combines learning and fun in the real life garden with an exciting, educational online experience thanks to a loveable cast of garden characters.  My son loves to play on the computer and I love the fact that Growums has games and interactive tools just for kids."

There are 6 amazing kits to choose from: Taco Garden, Ratatouille Garden, Salad Garden, Herb Garden, Stir-Fry Garden and Pizza Garden.  There is something to please everyone in the family.

Growums Gardening Kits:
·         Gives children a life-changing experience, teaching them that they can grow their own food and help the environment, as well as emphasize the importance of healthy eating
·         Gives them gardening knowledge and shows them the skills it takes to become a successful gardener – no matter what their age
·         Gives kids a chance to have fun quality time with their parents, siblings and grandparents – both out in the garden, as well as online
·         Gives back to your organization, charity or fundraiser

Once you receive your Growums Kit be sure to get on-line and register it at  At 17 fun Growum characters come to life and interact with you in every process of your gardening.  At you can check out gardens, track your garden, meet other growums and play games. Once you register you can also view the classroom videos.

We have been lucky enough to try the Taco Garden.  Our kit includes:

  • Cilantro Seeds
  • Jalapeno seeds
  • Lettuce Seeds
  • Tomato Seeds
  • 8 Coco Pellets
  • 8 Plant tags
The kit was easy to use and the interactive website made the process fun and easy.

Make sure you contact Growums for your next fundraiser event for your children's school or any organization.

These kits would make great gifts, stocking stuffers, aids in education.  My sons school is very interested in adding this kits to the curriculum next year (when it starts to get nice again).

You can purchase the kits at online on the Growums website.  Or you can look up what local stores carry Growums, just enter your zip code in the search box. They also sell Growum shirts and wristbands.

Thanks to Growums one lucky Tips for Saving winner will have the chance to win a kit of their choice by using the easy Rafflecopter entry form below.

Sick of Junk Mail? Makeover your Mailbox Now!

Are you sick of all that unnecessary junk mail in your mailbox?  Junk mail is just that JUNK, it's usually not read, takes up space on your contour and is usually thrown out!  Thanks to The Organizing Cheerleader I now have some new insight to my junk mail and a new realization that something needs to be done about it. I can stop wasting my time on junk.  I learned some staggering stats about junk mail and discovered a website that you can easily opt-out of all your junk mail, or just certain items you don't want to receive anymore.

Did you know that It takes 17 trees to make a ton of paper, Americans spend over $275 million to dispose of junk mail each year, Americans spend 8 months of their lives sifting through junk mail and the average adult is on 50 mailing lists! Phew that's a lot of Junk and wasted resources.

Take 5 minutes out of your day to give your mailbox a makeover by clicking here to opt-out of unwanted pre-approval credit card, catalogue, magazines and much more.

Scott's Liquid Gold Review & Giveaway

One of my favorite pieces of furniture is one that has been passed down from my grandmother. It is all wood and through the years has gone from looking beautiful to looking dull and worn. Thanks to the wonderful people at Scott’s Liquid Gold I was able to try their Wood Cleaner on my favorite piece and WOW what a difference. My grandmother’s furniture looks brand new (minus some scratches over the years). It is so shiny and clean. I could not believe the amount of dirt that came off. I usually just dust the wood, but the actual wood cleaner… cleans! I was so surprised and excited about the new look of our furniture that I had to try the Scott’s Liquid Gold Wood Wash on my wood floors. Let me just tell you that I’m loving it. The floors look clean, they are so shiny they are reflecting everything that hits them, they feel so smooth on our bare feet and they smell good.
