Free 128 Peroxide Sample

An environmentally friendly cleaning solution

I have been concentrating on finding more eco-friendly ways to clean my house. I’m finding out that a lot of natural products I own are actually great cleaning agents. It beats worrying about the health reports that are associated with cleansers that use harsh chemicals.

Concentrate 128 is currently giving away a free sample of their peroxide. This sample must be diluted with water before use. The amount you dilute the peroxide is based on whether you are just giving your house a light cleaning, or a heavy one. Dilution amounts are listed on the package, but the website does calculate a cost of about $.05 for every quart. That is a huge savings.

Free Coffee-Mate Sample

This Friday, March 23rd, is being dubbed Free Flavor Friday by Coffee-Mate. The company is giving away a coupon for a free bottle of Coffee-Mate to the first 200,000 individuals who fill out the request form. The catch is that the request form won’t be available until 9 am PST on Friday. I know I’m marking my calendar so I don’t miss out on this offer.

Coffee-Mate flavors include French Vanilla, Hazelnut, Italian Sweet Cream, Peppermint Mocha, and Caramel Macchiato. Although I am more of a plain creamer-type coffee drinker, my daughter loves the flavor of the French Vanilla and the Peppermint Mocha. Many members of my family are big coffee drinkers and will be very excited about this offer.

Create a Facebook Classifieds Group to Sell Household Items

I’m really excited about a new way I found to make money.  Someone in our local town created a Facebook group for local classifieds, and by selling off extra things in our house, we made $500 last week.  $500!  Since our town is far away from the closest Craigslist city, selling on there is a little more difficult – no one wants to travel to us.  The Facebook classifieds group, however, is targeted just to people in our small town. 

Free Godiva Chocolate

If you are a chocolate lover like myself, you are going to want to take advantage of Godiva’s Rewards Club. This really is no different than the rewards clubs you most likely belong to at your grocery store, office supply store, or local department store. You sign up completely for free and then receive several perks that those without the card don’t get. For example, if you sign up to be part of Godiva’s Rewards Club you’ll get a free piece of chocolate each and every month simply by visiting a Godiva Boutique.

A free piece of chocolate is not the only perk to being part of Godiva’s Rewards program. You’ll also receive a free gift for each month that you make a minimum purchase of $20. What’s even better is that you can choose one of your online orders to be free of shipping charges. New promotions and offers are also offered each month, so keep an eye out in your email inbox.

Administer Your Own Pet Vaccinations?

"... save yourself a considerable amount of time and money on puppy vaccinations."

I took a dog to the vet last year for her puppy vaccinations.  The vet looked her over, gave her a shot and sent us on our way, five minutes and $26 later.  You may not know it, but puppy vaccinations come in three different rounds, so to give standard puppy vaccinations at our vet cost $78 – that’s a real pain in the wallet!  As it turns out, you can administer your own pet vaccinations for a fraction of the price, and it’s really not as hard as you might think.

Free Discover Series eBook for Kids

I love home schooling and being the one to educate my children. Even if you don’t home school, however, you can still take advantage of tons of free educational resources. The newest resource I have discovered is the free Discover Series eBook for kids called Birds.

Currently, the eBook is available for Kindles, but may other devices have a free Kindle app that you can download in order to get this free eBook. For example, I have an iPod Touch for myself and my oldest daughter. We can just download the Kindle app from the App Store and then get the eBook from Amazon.
