Icaughtsanta.com Review & Giveaway



My children are 5 and 3 and believe in Santa - they know that the Santa at the mall is his helper.  Recently, Santa came to their school for their Christmas pictures and I asked my son whether he was the real santa or helper and he said real.  Hopefully, this will last a few more years although I'm sure when he hits big school there will be spoilers around.

How about making this season even more magical for your kids by making a fun icaughtsanta photo?  Its easy just take a picture of your family room with tree and download while at http://www.icaughtsanta.com/favoritesanta, then you can choose from 20 different santas each with funny poses (e.g. eating a cookie, reading a list, sitting down).  There's the option to size the Santa to fit into your background and also personalize with a background and text.  You can preview before buying.  It’s so easy to create your digital photo (ARV $9.99) and then after paying you'll be able to email your photo to friends and family or post your photo to your social site including Facebook, MySpace, Flickr and others.

 

A personalized picture from Catch a Character is the perfect gift for any child… PROOF that their favorite fictional character is not only real, but was actually ‘Caught on Camera’ in their very own home! Kids will be amazed when they see the "proof" and you'll be a Hero! Throughout the year, choose from other characters such as The Easter Bunny and The Tooth Fairy.

Five lucky Freebie Junkie winners can win their own icaughtsanta digital picture of their own

Since we are only 7 days away from Christmas this will be a quick contest with one mandatory entry

My daughter loves dressing up, she has a few Princess dresses (halloween costumes) and of course the matching shoes.  When she has her girlfriends over for playdates you'll find them by the dress up chest in their full regalia.  Its so cute to watch.
 
 
Have you seen Cutie Boutique? it is an adorable dress up line that is exclusive to Walmart, so not only is it cute dress up clothes, it's affordable as well! The line includes cute clothing and accessories from tutus and leotards to shoes, hair accessories and gloves.

We received a tutu, gloves, headband and shoes for review.
 


I gave my daughter the items and she dressed them up with her pirate t-shirt and pirate tights! How funny!  I loved the cute headband!  My daughter loves pink so this headband can be worn with any of her wardrobe.  Its fun to encourage kids to be creative and imaginative - kids need to be kids!

Dreams and plans for new possibilities



Dreams and plans for new possibilities

Who would have thought back in April this year that I'd have a fun blog with so many possibilities. 

I first learnt about wheeling and dealing from my Mum.  My Mum was a stay at home Mum for our early years and on a Chefs salary our household budget was very tiny so my Mum had to be creative to ensure there was a good meal on the table and clothes on our back. We lived in a town where there was a weekend market where you can buy fresh fruit and vegetables and also clothes and other sundries.  My Mum would go shopping at the market around 4pm on a Saturday (one hour before closing) and start negotiating prices for fresh vegetables and fruit.  She was always successful as the market traders had to get rid of the stock as it will go bad before the next market day which was Wednesday.  With all the extras she would walk round to her friends and share the extras (no charge).  My Mum taught me that you do not need to pay full price for things and "if you don't ask you don't get".

 After the sticker shock of double the cost with an extra child I started couponing hard after the birth of my second child.  With the help of forums and other blogs I learnt that stacking coupons, sales and rebates was an option and soon enough I was getting everyday brand products for free or as a steal or deal. I would share my deals with my friends via email and after a while I thought why don't I share my deals via a blog this way I can share with a wider audience.  So The Freebie Junkie was born in late April, 2010 and here we are 8 months later with nearly 50,000 page views a month and nearly 3000 followers.  Thank you to all my followers as with your continued interest I continue to offer my freebies, steals and deals and now a huge list of giveaways too.

The possibilities for The Freebie Junkie are endless for 2011 and beyond.  I hope to invest in designing a more user friendly website so that you can find the deals that work for you and your family.  Also, I would like to expand so that freebies/deals and steals can be covered for all markets of the US (especially areas that I do not live in) and also help relieve my workload too (to my husbands joy).  This would involve bringing in some fellow Freebie Junkie readers to assist.  The logisitics of this is daunting but very possible so bear with me as I work out the ideas in my head onto paper and then into fruition.

One day, I hope to be able to offer a car or maybe a house as a giveaway!  Wouldn't that be something!  Watch out Oprah I have your spot in my sight - LOL!

Holiday Gift Guide: Warmly Yours - Under Desk Heater Review & Giveaway

Photobucket
Welcome to The Freebie Junkie's Holiday Gift Guide
Gift: Warmly Yours Under Desk Heater
Category: Friend's & Family Gift 
Review & Giveaway
 
My job involves a lot of paperwork but since everything is electronic now I sit glued to my computer all day long.  This doesn't do my circulation any good and most of the time my feet get cold.  I have an under desk heater but we all know how loud they get and also there's always that burnt smell when you fire it up causing my coworkers to start panicking.  Recently, we were told we are not allowed to use the under deak heaters due to fire risk and also they are not particularly energy efficient.  So off I went online to search for an alternative that would satisfy my energy & safe minded cost conscious company.
 



I found Warmly Yours online and discovered their Under Desk Heater.  Warmly Yours kindly sent me an Under Desk Heater for review.
I was excited to find their Under Desk Warmer is completely discrete; no noise, no burnt smell and therefore no fire panick attacks among my coworkers.  Warmly Yours new plug in floor mat provides radiant warmth at a fraction of the energy required by space heaters.  The best part is when I take my shoes off at work and feel the warm carpet I feel like I'm at home.  Don't expect to get overheated legs too as the radiant heat through the carpet is just enough to warm my cold toes.  The Under Desk Warmer is available in two sizes (Small - 18" x 24" and Large - 24" x 36") to fit discreetly in most smaller spaces and is offered in the Merlot color.  My order came in pretty fast so if you order one for yourself or as a gift you still have time for it to arrive in time for Christmas.
 
Warmly Yours has a wide array of products to help you heat your home efficiently; from small items such as mirror defoggers and towel warmers to big ticket items such as radiant floor heating systemsWouldn't it be lovely to walk into your bathroom in the morning to radiant floor heating?  We have tile in our bathroom and oh my toes would be so happy and so would my checkbook.
 
Check out Warmly Yours via their blog, facebook and Twitter
 
BUY IT
You can purchase the Warmly yours Under Desk Heater here.  The small heater retails for $89.00 and the large heater $139.00.  Move those old heaters to the basement and step up to the Warmly yours Under Desk Heater.  Its a cost saving excercise too!  Check out all the radiant heting products here.

The Best Gift Ever


The Best Gift Ever Given

When asked "what's the best gift I have ever given?"
I honestly have to say the ones that are free of course.


This time of the year is about giving, but in the rush of life, giving for many has become quantity over quality and the translation of giving is lost.  I'm there with the majority, I wrapped countless gifts the other night, many for my children, knowing that they will tear through them in a matter of seconds on Christmas morning only to move swiftly onto the next.  Fortunately for me, I'm pretty savvy with superstacking coupons, deals and rebates and many of the gifts have been attained for next to nothing.  I love seeing my children on Christmas morning smiling from ear to ear and playing with the toys that they had so wished for, however, the best gift are the gifts that I "GIVE"to others less fortunate. 

Whenever a deal, steal or freebie comes up I make sure to stock up and at the end of the year I go through my stockpile and start sorting them for donations.  There are so many charities to give to, my favorites are Toys for Tots, my community coat drive and local shelters where household food, toiletries and clothes can be dropped off.  Go through your closets and pantry, you'll be suprised at how much you've accumulated and you'll soon give the best gift ever.

GIVE
I'm going to give a $1 to Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) and it won't cost me a penny, with just an easy free download of the Swagg App to my iPhone, Swagg will donate $1 to Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) , up to $125,000 (between now and December 31, 2010).
