Mommy PR giveaways

It's been a while but here's my latest list of awesome giveaways over at MommyPR!

Supermarket Smarty: For those of us who go to the store with shopping list in hand, coupons in container... and manage to drop, spill, or generally lose track of them, the Supermarket Smarty should be a lifesaver!

Joanie Leeds CDJoannie Leeds is a rocker who's doing some cool kids' music.  I LOVE being able to listen to my son's music without wanting to immediately scream because it's absolutely insipid and cloying!

Sleep Number Comforter: And you thought Sleep Number only made mattresses!  Now they make comforters that you can actually custom fill so one half is different than the other- both the warmth level and fill content are customizable!

NOVICA GC ($75): Novica is a "hands-on" company associated with National Geographic.  I want to include this comment from the site:
We want to give artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their true artistic talents and to spur their creativity. And, we want to provide you with access to unique, hard-to-find items at great values that only the Internet infrastructure can allow.

At the deepest essence of our philosophy, we want to create a bridge between you and the many talented artisans across the globe.

We want you to know about who you’re buying from. We want you to feel that attachment to the product and to the hands that created it.

In the spirit of the Internet, let us bring you together.

NOVICA. The World is Your Market.
The items sold at NOVICA benefit the artisans who have actually made them and there are some GORGEOUS things there!

Fantasy Jewelry Box GC ($50): If you like what the stars wear on the red carpet, you're going to LOVE Fantasy Jewelry Box!  It's all made of CZs and non-precious stones so you look like a million bucks but it doesn't cost nearly that!

Waggaloo CD: Another music CD for the kids.  Smithsonian Folkways Recordings has put out this great CD by Sarah Lee Guthrie and family (and friends... including Arlo Guthrie and Pete Seeger!)  Did I mention I like kids' music I can listen to?

Tortoise & Hare: This is a reading of the Tortoise in the Hare for the kiddies from Maestro Classics.  Perfect for the long car trips!!

Tony Horton: If you're the one person not trying to lose weight and get in shape, ignore this.  Otherwise...  :)  This giveaway is for "Workout One on One with Tony Horton, Volume 1."  It's 13 discs of butt (and abs and arms and... ) kicking workouts that you can finish more quickly than his extensive P90X workouts (yeah, same guy!)  The really neat thing is that you only get one disc a month so you can use it to supplement your other workouts and ease into it rather than being suddenly overwhelmed with 13 discs at once.

Temporal Thermometer Giveaways!

When my son managed to land himself in the E.R. last year on Super Bowl Sunday evening (it was at least empty at that time!), the nurse who took his temperature used a small device that he just swept over L's forehead.  I was blown away that it took his temp accurately in a matter of seconds!  We've been using a digital thermometer that while quick, gives readings several degrees off of one another within a minute!  It turns out that these thermometers are becoming available to us in many stores (~$30-50) and there are several sites giving away Exergen Temporal Theremometers right now  From my experience, these are definitely giveaways worth checking out!!  (btw- My son was fine- he was just dealing with a go-home bout of RSS.)

Brown Paper Packages
The Legacy of the Home
The Suburban Jungle
Today's Giveaway

UPDATE 3/22- Still MORE giveaways added! Spring Cleaning Giveaway Event!

A Bittersweet Existence and There's No Snakes in New Zealand have put together an absolutely ROCKIN' giveaway in honor of SPRING CLEANING (hey, Spring Cleaning has to be glamorous somehow!)
The giveaways end in a range of dates from Mar. 22-29.

The giveaways are:
Post-its pack- a variety of Post-its for organizing your everything!

Rubbermaid Junk Drawer Organizer- interlocking containers for the junk drawer we all have! (Come on!  Don't deny it!  It really could use a could clean out couldn't it?)

SKOY cloth- a reusable, washable cloth to replace our dependence on the paper towel (whoo hoo!  Less in the landfill... and a little sexier than the rags of tshirts we use at our house!)

A Clean Happens natural cleaners starter pack- a great variety pack of cleaning supplies made with all-natural ingredients rather than the typical chemicals found in most cleaners (imagine a world with no child-proof locks!)

A Haan Steam Cleaner- The Haan cleaner you can use anywhere and everywhere (I told you it was ROCKIN'!)

Knock Knock Note Pads- Knock Knock is a company with a bit of a wicked sense of humor.  Take a look at their site for an idea of how far it can go.  Their items range from sticky pads and filing folders to shopping bags to baby shower and kids' bingo cards, all with a tongue in cheek approach to life.

Shaklee Get Clean Starter Kit:  I'm not overly familiar with Shaklee's cleaning supplies but I'm willing to give green cleaners a try and this is a doozy of a starter kit!

Chef'n SleekStorTM Colander- What's better to save space than something that's generally large but can collapse?  Chef'n has a silicone colander that has not only folding legs but a collapsible bowl.  I personally really like my other silicone kitchen tools and I think this is a brilliant idea!

A Hoover Carpet Cleaner- A Hoover Platinum Collection Carpet Cleaner, also for anywhere and everywhere! (I told you it was ABSOLUTELY ROCKIN'!)
