Spring Cleaning is a breeze… Shark® Rocket Complete with DuoClean™ Technology

Shark RocketShark® Rocket Complete with DuoClean™ Technology

I never thought I would say this but this year I am so excited about spring cleaning. I know it sounds crazy, like saying I would like for someone to rub their nails on a chalkboard, please. But really this year I have the best help to tackle those spring cleaning issues. The Shark® Rocket Complete with DuoClean™ Technology is my secret weapon to spring cleaning this year!

I have not one but TWO, two story homes. I know, what was I thinking… But both need a good spring cleaning and both have carpet and tile. So this awesome vacuum has come to the rescue.

Here is what all is included with this vacuum:

  • Shark® Rocket® Complete vacuum with DuoClean Technology
  • Dusting Brush
  • 12” Crevice Tool
  • Pet Upholstery Tool
  • On-Board Tool Clip
  • Wall Mount
  • 30’ Cord
  • Under Appliance Wand (bonus item)

 

This Shark® Rocket Complete with DuoClean™ Technology can literally clean your home from your ceiling to your floor. It is light weight and offers a ton of options for all of your cleaning needs! I have tried everything and love the fan cleaning option and under the furniture wand!

 

 

I am able to tote this lightweight vacuum upstairs with no problems. I use it for the stairwell and even the tile at the bottom of the stairs, this makes cleaning a breeze! It also is so easy to clean out. Each time I finish with the house or condo I just dump it out. It has a clear container so you can see how amazing it is working!

 

It is so easy to use and to move that I am able to take it to the condo each week for a good clean. Before I would have to load a big vacuum that would leave a mess in my car. This one has really been a lifesaver, not only has it helped my spring cleaning but it is going to make my summer a lot more fun!!

 

Shoplet Avery Ultra Tabs Repositionable!!

I use a ton of tabs for all of my bookkeeping needs, this helps me with my busy life.

I use a record book for when we rent the condo out on the weekends. These tabs are great for keeping the sections separated. Each color represents a different category in my record book. I also section off my condo book to record renters who have left reviews and those that still need to.

To help me stay organized, I separate my book by the month so I will have a record of all the bookings.

 

 

I use the same method for my Reviews By Kathy record book. So finding good tabs was important for me. Especially since I am a little OCD and need some that are removable so I can continually change them to fit my needs. I have found what works best for me is the Avery Mini UltraTabs. You can write on them even after you have placed them on the paper, they are smudge free so no messes! I use quite a few so I like the mini tabs the best!

You can get these cute mini tabs in a pastel color also!!

I also use the Avery Moveable Tab Dividers to help me keep my records, these work great and are also repositionable! So if I do not like the order everything is in, I can simply remove and place the tab elsewhere.

I like to stay organized and cannot do it without these tabs, they are my lifesavers!! I also only buy my office products through Shoplet. They are my go-to store for all of my Cleaning Supply needs, Medical Supply needs, and Office Furniture needs!

If you love saving money and being organized like me, then you really need to check them out!

prAna Clothes #prAnaMama Comfy & Stylish!! DISCOUNT CODE INCLUDED #momsmeet

“I received this product for free from Moms Meet, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agree to use this product and post my honest opinion on my blog. The opinions posted are my own.”

Living right, eating right and getting healthier are my goals this year. Since retiring I have noticed a gradual weight gain. I decided at the beginning of this year I wanted to live a healthier lifestyle to be around a long time watch my grandkids grow up. This included being more active and even taking up some exercising and walking.

 

At my age, fixing to turn the big “50”, it is imperative I stay comfy while doing my exercises and walking. This is why I love prAna clothes. They are so soft and stretchable so workouts are a breeze.

Their clothes are shaped to help you look slimmer than you really are!! I love that!! My husband even complimented me when I wore this outfit stating “Have you lost weight?”. NOPE but he doesn’t have to know that!!

Their clothes are the latest fashion for workout clothes and casual wear! They are made so well even after a few washes they still fit and look the same as the day I received them!

When you check out prAna and find those adorable clothes you can’t live without, I have an awesome 15% off code you can use: MOMRBK

What I really loved about them is how true to size they are. Their size chart really helps when placing that order!

Ozeri Moderna 8 Double Wall Thermo Glasses

I ordered the Ozeri Moderna 8 Double Wall Thermo Glasses for my condo to use for guests. I wanted something that was different and unique looking so that when we do take them outside we won’t lose any! Around here everyone likes to socialize so there tends to be a lot of glasses sitting around the condo complex. But not mine! Everyone has complimented me on how nice and classy these glasses look.

I love the perfect size and how great they fit in my hand. I am able to walk all over the condo with them and they fit perfectly. I have a small hand so finding a glass that isn’t too wide is hard.

The double insulation helps keep the ice for a long time. I also was impressed by the packaging. Every glass was double wrapped in pop-plastic to prevent breakage. If you need a nice set of glasses for entertaining, check these out!

The Ozeri Moderna 8 Double Wall Thermo Glasses are easily purchased at Wal-Mart. Would make a great gift or just to add your glass collection.

Living Green Using Trolley Bags!! BergHOFF @trolleybagsusa

The older I get the more I realize I not only want to teach my grandkids how to be kind to the Earth we live in but also set an example on how to save our resources. Even small steps will make a big difference. I started taking my own bags to the grocery store to save from using plastic ones, I know this isn’t a big step but every little bit helps!

Since then I was introduced to the Trolley Bags. I love how easy to use and store these bags are. First, you roll them up when not in use and when you need them again you just roll them out and place them in the grocery cart. After your shopping is done you can separate them by simply pulling them apart. They are connected with velcro making it easy to separate them for the cashier.

They come in a variety of sizes to help cover all of your grocery shopping needs. I love having my refrigerated foods in one bag and personal items separated in another bag. There is nothing like getting home from the grocery store to find a refrigerated item stuck in the middle of a bag of personal items. I don’t have to stress how the “bagger” will separate my groceries anymore since it is done already. These really help make those dreaded shopping trips easier and more organized.

The Trolley Bag sets come in different sizes for light shoppers or heavy shoppers. They also offer different color sets. If you like the idea of green living you should check these out!

ClearPop Rapid Earache Relief

I have always hated an earache. As an adult, it hurts, unlike any pain I have ever felt. I really dislike it when my son gets an earache. I always felt so bad and helpless, until now! The first time I realized my son was grabbing his ear and was in pain I called the doctor and requested an appointment immediately.

Since then I have found ClearPop Rapid Earache Relief, I no longer have to stress over another earache. ClearPop is an over the counter treatment. It is easy to use by simply sucking on it like a sucker.

 

 

How it Works:

Only ClearPop works from inside the mouth to effectively and safely unblock the ear and Eustachian tube for immediate pain relief without medicines. Often over-prescribed, antibiotics treat the infection but can take 24-48 hours to work, don’t directly address pain, and can have potential side effects. Analgesics only mask the pain but don’t treat the underlying issue. Externally applied drops and solutions are ineffective because they can’t penetrate to the middle ear where the problem originates. ClearPop actually stops earache pain where it starts!

 

 

Rock A Bye #Rockabyerocker

There is nothing that makes me happier than to see my grandbabies with a smile on their face!! They can light up a room with their little laughter. I love watching them learn and experience life, every day is something new. I was so excited for my youngest grandson, Ivan, to try out the new Rock A Bye Colt Pony Rocker. This rocker is so cute and fluffy, he loved sitting on it and rocking! Then he realized there were different shapes he could push for different songs to play.

Ivan has just turned 1 year old. He is a very brave little one who loves to try and do everything his older brother does. He was so excited when he saw his new toy! We were curious to see if he would get on it by himself, and sure enough, it wasn’t long before he accomplished that!

These rockers have color and shape buttons you can press to play different songs while you rock. I love working with him on the colors and shapes. As a former teacher any toy that they can learn from is A+ in my book.

 

He also received the Homer Baseball Chair Rocker, this one is so cute, you sit in the glove to rock. This rocker has ABC & 123 songs that you can rock to while learning! I love how proud Ivan is that he can crawl right up on it and fit in the glove. He will fuss at us when we try to get him off of them!

 

The age group for the rockers is 9 months to around 3 years (or 80 pounds). Because they are light weight you pick them up and move them around easily. There are a ton of designs to choose from and you can even have them personalized! Right now they are 50% off so hurry while they last. These rockers are very well made and will last a long time! They would make great Easter gifts!!

Never Too Hungover @Never2Hungovr

This is a sponsored post, although this is 100% my opinion. 

You would think at my age I would know when to stop drinking so much, but when you are having too much fun, it is hard for me to find a stopping point…

We attend a lot of parties and as usual the next day I spent most of the day trying to recover. After finding and trying Never Too Hungover, I soon learned, I can have my cake and eat it too! I now take a container and my first drink is alway mixed with Never Too Hungover.

The flavor is quite yummy, which makes it easy to use as a mix or just drinking it on my way to the party!!

 

Good thing I found an easy fix!! Never Too Hungover is my go to help. You can take it before or during when you drink as a preventative.  It is a healthy vitamin blend with no sugar or caffeine. Best hangover remedy!

Never Too Hungover is a healthy vitamin blend that helps neutralize toxins, restores vital nutrients and rehydrates the body.

 

 

I can’t even imagine not having this in my life, I spent too long not being prepared for the day after. This not only helps me feel just fine the next day but it helps me accomplish so much since I am not wasting the day away recovering!

Yes, they are still around and guess what?? This year I turn the big “50”. I have changed my mindset, as now I realize 50 isn’t that old. I am excited and ready for it!

I decided to just enjoy this point in my life and not dread it. My husband and I are empty nesters now, so now we can have fun doing more things together, like travel, dinners, and even getting healthier!  We are determined to live a long healthy lifestyle. To be around to watch our grandchildren grow up!

National Geographic Kids Leveled Readers #Momsmeet

I received this product from Moms Meet for review purposes, this is 100% my own opinion.

As a former middle school teacher, I can you tell you personally the difference between kids that were read to and kids that were not. Not only was their vocabulary a lot better, but they also showed a better understanding.  Children who are read to display a more curious mind and are more willing to ask questions. They learn from a young age that books tell stories and are informative.

Our grandchildren love when Mimi and Poppy read to them. They absorb everything we read. I can tell they listen because they take that information and use it later. Our oldest grandson is really interested in animals right now so we were excited to introduce the National Geographic Kids Leveled Readers to him.

The first thing they do when they come to visit is run find their favorite National Geographic for Kids Leveled Book for us to read. I usually end up reading several of them before their visit is up. They love the vibrant colors and how each book is so interesting. At the end of the book, it recaps what they learned, they love hollering out the answers, they even go to the page to show me they were right.

 

If you have a little one that loves to learn, or if you want to help them get ahead in school, reading is not only the best way but it will also help make wonderful memories with your little one! I recommend the National Geographic Kids Leveled Reading books. The are very reasonably priced! Their site also has free printables and also some very useful information, games, and videos!!
