How to Find Freebies Online

The internet is a huge resource for finding great freebies, no matter what you are looking for. The amount of free stuff available from various freebie websites is truly overwhelming. Freebie sites often loudly proclaim their best free offers, but you have to be careful of sites that promise free things and then ask for all sorts of information or that you download toolbars or other “tools” for finding freebies.  Sites of this type are often loaded with spyware and malware.  Staying away from the disreputable sites can be easy if you stick to the better-known freebie sites.


 

Finding Freebies

The first step you need to take if you want to find freebies online is to do a simple search through a search engine such as Google.  If you have a specific freebie category, you would like to look for, just specify it in the search engine.  For instance, if you need free stuff for your new baby, just type in “free baby stuff” and hit the search arrow.

Once you have found sites offering freebies, read through the offers carefully to ensure that they really are no-cost offers.  Some offers are advertised as being freebies, but really require you spend money on shipping and handling or other fees.


 

Choosing Freebie Offers

When you are looking for freebies, it is important that you choose only the ones you are actually interested in.  There are so many freebies available online; there is really no reason to take offers for things you will not use.  Some of the most helpful freebies include screen savers for your computer, spyware-blocking programs and free email.


 

Using Coupon Sites for Freebies

Coupon sites often provide more than just coupons for their users.  Many coupon sites can provide special access for rebate offers that result in free products, as well as high-value coupons.  Visit several competing coupon sites to take advantage of all the available offers for various products.


 

Earning Points for Freebies

Some sites offer points for completing offers and surveys.  These points can be redeemed for freebies on commonly purchased items with a high value.  Some sites offer points that are redeemable at local stores and can even tie in with store loyalty cards.


 

Free Samples

Some sites offer free samples of their products so that potential customers can try before they buy.  This type of deal is usually offered for personal care items such as razors, shaving gel and shampoo or conditioner.



Check out my other post for freebie deals.

School Fundraising Catalogs Drives Me Crazy!


School Fundraising Catalogs Drives Me Crazy!  via  www.productreviewmom.com

Back to school has been going well, the girls went back to school on August 10th.  I wished that school would’ve started back after Labor Day weekend so they can enjoy the last days of summer, but at least they’ll get out of school at the end of spring.



The girls like their new teachers and enjoy seeing their old classmates as well as meeting new ones.  Seems like we got the whole routine of going back to school down pack but going to bed on time and waking up early is still in need of a little work, but it’s improving.



Homework has started and Lauren does her homework at childcare while I’m at work, and Michelle does hers at home after I pick them up from childcare since her class is doing all their assignments online this year.  I’ll need to find out if these assignments can be completed on her tablet so she can complete her homework at childcare as well so she doesn’t get home trying to rush through it since we don’t have a whole lot of time in the evenings.



During the second week of school, my girls told me they already have their fundraiser catalog and you should’ve seen the look on my face when they told me this!



School Fundraising Catalogs Drives Me Crazy!  via  www.productreviewmom.com

You see, I hate these fundraisers, yes I said it, HATE THEM!  It’s like the school has these fundraisers almost every month!  A catalog filled with crap that no one wants but yet the school wants parents, I mean kids, to beg people to buy things from their catalogs so their class can win an ice cream party or some useless toy from a list of prizes.  And the kids can forget it even trying to win the grand prize which usually is a game system or a bike; you pretty much have to sell your soul to get one of those!



Like I was saying, the kids are not the ones doing all the hustle work to get people to buy from these fundraising catalogs, it’s the parents!  I’m tired of begging people to buy things they don’t even want or need, plus it is overpriced anyway.  Also, 9 times out of 10 the people I’m begging to buy from these catalogs are in the same boat as me, trying to get people to buy from their child’s catalog.



I understand that these schools need funding but there have to be a better way about raising money.  I know my daughters’ school has sponsors and do several activities like fall and spring festivals that we pay to get into. 



Here are some fundraising ideas:


  • Have a raffle.


  • Put these kids to work and have a car wash.


  • Have a craft sale.


  • Gift wrapping during the holiday season.  I would pay for this because my gift wrapping is horrible!


  • Movie night at the school.  Better to pay to see a movie at the school than paying high prices at the movie theaters.


  • Parents Night Out because we parents can use a break away from the kids.  My daughters’ daycare does this over the holidays so the parents can do their Christmas shopping, and during Valentine’s Day so parents can have a romantic night out.


  • Do a talent show and charge for admissions.  With a parent’s child being in the talent show I know they would be more than willing to pay.


  • Fun Run races.  Best way to get the kids active all while raising money.


  • Have a garage sale at the school.  Parents can donate stuff they don’t need to the school and the school can sell the items.  Also the school can sell items they don’t need too.


  • Sell children’s artwork.  Children can have their artwork placed in an exhibit at school and people who are interested can buy the artwork.



So you see, this catalog fundraising throughout the school year has to stop!  Maybe do it once or twice during the school year, not every other month!  There are so many different ways to raise money instead of bugging the living daylights out of people!



What are your thoughts on school’s catalog fundraisers?

Look What Brown Can Do! Book Review

Look What Brown Can Do!   Book Review  via  www.productreviewmom.com
 The girls and I were provided a book free to do a review, all opinions are our own.  Post contains Amazon affiliate links.



I always let my girls know that they can be anything they want to be if they set their minds to it.  Right now they’re unsure what they want to be when they grow up but whatever it may be I’ll be there to cheer them on.



With all the craziness and racial tensions going on in the world today, I do fear what my girls will have to go through now and when they get older.  The media has painted African Americans as uneducated thugs but hardly show us in a positive light.  I try to shelter my girls of all the negativity so that they don’t feel like they’re not equal to everyone else.  



With Mr. M and I both entrepreneurs, we want to set an example for our girls to let them know that if we can start our own business they can do the same too.  This is why you see my girls on my blog because I want them to be a part of my journey as a full time blogger/ business owner and see that if their mom can make a business from her passions then they can do the same as well. 



Remember, kids today will be the leaders of tomorrow so we need to help guide them for the future.  We need to continue to uplift them, inspire them, be a positive role model, help them be the next to create a legacy. 


Look What Brown Can Do!   Book Review  via  www.productreviewmom.com


The girls and I just recently finished reading a book called, “Look What Brown Can Do!” showing real life African Americans who paved the way and created history.  The book was created by T. Marie Harris, a SAHM of 2 who wanted to create books that highlights black characters since it’s hard to find children’s book with black characters in them. 


Look What Brown Can Do!   Book Review   via  www.productreviewmom.com


It’s refreshing to read a book like this showing my girls that people of their same skin color can be anything they want to be like an artist, business owner, government leader, athlete, inventor, etc.  My girls can look in the mirror and be proud of what they see and love the skin that they're in, you never know, they may be the next ones people will be reading about in history books.



Although the book is meant for children a little bit younger than my girls, children and adults of any ages would enjoy reading Look What Brown Can Do!  I found myself googling about some of the people mentioned in the book since I never heard of them before, so this book gives a great history lesson. 
 


I love the illustrations and the message showing that children of color can do it too.  This book will have you and your child talking and help them get inspired about what they’d like to be when they grow up.  



This book is a must read for everyone, not just African Americans.  I applauded T. Marie Harris for creating such an aspiring book for children, especially for African American children.  I look forward to seeing more books by her showing characters that looks like my girls.



Would you like to get a copy for your child?  The book can be purchased on Amazon





What would your child like to be when they grow up?

Best Family Friendly Games

Best Family Friendly Games  via www.productreviewmom.com
 Post contains Amazon affiliate links, meaning I'll earn a few coins if you click and make a purchase



Family is very important to me, so I am always looking for ways to bond with my girls. We love having game nights frequently so today I thought I would discuss some of the best family friendly games. 


Best Family Friendly Games- Zingo  via www.productreviewmom.com
This game can be purchased for less than $20.00 and it is ideal for children ages 4-8. It is similar to Bingo, it comes as a standard version, and there are other versions available such as the numbers/math version and the word builder version. It is an education game yet your children are sure to have loads of fun playing it with you. 


Best Family Friendly Games- Spot it   via www.productreviewmom.com
Spot it is another great game that won’t cost more than $20. It is recommended for ages 4+. They have various versions such as ‘On the Road’ and even a Frozen version. With this game, you want to be the first person to find a matching pair of cards and call out the name of the match. It is very addicting and allows some friendly competition to take place. 


Best Family Friendly Games-  Twister  via www.productreviewmom.com
Twister is a fun game that has been around for years but it still makes this list because in my opinion it never goes out of style. It is great for getting your stretch on while also helping your little ones get better with their colors. This game is so much fun no matter how many times that you play it. 


Best Family Friendly Games-  Go Fish  via www.productreviewmom.com

Go Fish is another game that never goes out of style. It helps children learn about matches and it is fun for the entire family. You are sure to get many laughs out while playing this classic card game. 


Best Family Friendly Games-  Simon  via www.productreviewmom.com

Simon is a game that is fun for the family too. It has come such a long way over the years with all of the various updated versions available. With this game, you can take turns passing it around and see who can make it the longest before they miss a beat. This game can literally be played for hours and the time will just seem to fly by. 


There are so many family friendly games available on the market right now. However, I find these ones to be fun for both the little ones and adults. If you want to make sure that your next family game night is full of laughter and fun, consider playing one of the games that I have featured today on this list.


What is the best family friendly game in your opinion?

OH BOY!!!  This past weekend at the D23 EXPO 2015 in Anaheim, CA, they reviled so many upcoming movies coming to theaters soon!

Numerous talent and filmmakers from Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios introduced fans to array of new stories and characters—from a lost dinosaur to a master wayfinder, a scheming fox to a forgetful fish. The audience of 7,500 was treated to sneak peeks, musical performances and appearances from stars like Ellen DeGeneres, Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, Ginnifer Goodwin, Dwayne Johnson, Randy Newman and Ty Burrell, among others.



John Lasseter, chief creative officer of Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios, led the presentations, calling on a host of filmmakers from both studios to introduce the upcoming slate of films. “We really have an unbelievable range of movies in production at our studios right now,” said Lasseter. “The stories are dynamic, fresh and so much fun; the characters new and old are so appealing. I’m excited to share some of our long-held secrets for the first time at the D23 EXPO.”

THE GOOD DINOSAUR (#GoodDino)


Anticipation for Disney·Pixar’s THE GOOD DINOSAUR was amplified when Director Peter Sohn and Producer Denise Ream shared breathtaking sequences with fans, including never-before-seen footage of a trio of T-Rexes in action.



In theaters on November 25, 2015, the film introduces audiences to Arlo, a sheltered Apatosaurus who finds himself far from home, and Spot, Arlo’s unlikely human friend. “Arlo and Spot journey through a world that has been greatly inspired by the American Northwest,” said Sohn. “It is epic in scope, soul-enriching and simultaneously beautiful and treacherous. In this world, we meet up with a very special family of T-Rexes, who help Arlo find a way through his personal fears and ultimately teach Arlo what he's truly made of.”

Hilarious new scenes from the film were unveiled, plus a tease of the all-new original song, “Try Everything,” written by singer-songwriter Sia and songwriting duo Stargate, and performed by Shakira.

Said Stanton, “In FINDING DORY, we can expect to address the one emotionally open-ended issue that remained from the first movie: Where is Dory’s family, and will this overly-optimistic fish with short-term memory loss ever be able to find them again? Her issue has also given us the opportunity to travel to very different locations, on land and sea, and meet a variety of new sea creatures that expand the world of Nemo, Marlin and Dory.”



Also featuring the voices of Albert Brooks, Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton, Disney·Pixar’s FINDING DORY swims into theaters June 17, 2016

“Our research took us deep into the South Pacific,” said Clements. “The wonderful people we met there, their rich history and traditions, and their fantastic music changed us forever.”



“We can’t wait to bring those experiences to MOANA,” added Musker. “We are incredibly lucky to be able to work with three amazing artists who are the absolute best at what they do. The sounds they create will be something we’ve never heard before—but it’ll feel like it’s been part of this world forever."

TOY STORY 4 / TOY STORY 20th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION (#ToyStory4)

Pixar Animation Studios marks the 20th Anniversary of TOY STORY this year. Said Lasseter, "All the characters from ‘Toy Story’—especially Woody and Buzz—are so close to us. They seem more like family members than just creations. Not only do we dearly love the characters, but we also love the world of ‘Toy Story’—the world where toys come to life when people are not in the room has always been rich with many story possibilities."


Announcements of Movies Coming Soon from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm!   via  www.productreviewmom.com     Announcements of Movies Coming Soon from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm!   via  www.productreviewmom.com

Lasseter, who’s one of Pixar’s three founders, celebrated 20 years since TOY STORY transformed the animation industry and the art of storytelling. He welcomed to the stage iconic two-time Oscar®-winning songwriter and longtime Pixar collaborator Randy Newman, whose Pixar credits include “Toy Story,” “A Bug’s Life,” “Toy Story 2,” “Monsters, Inc.” and “Cars.”



Also joining in the celebration were TOY STORY 4 co-director Josh Cooley (“Cars 2,” “Ratatouille”) and Producer Galyn Susman (“Toy Story OF TERROR!”). Screenwriters Rashida Jones and Will McCormack (“Celeste & Jesse Forever”) joined Buzz, Woody and Bo Peep for the celebration. "I’m very proud of our films,” said Lasseter. “When we made the first three TOY STORY films, we didn’t realize what we had done was to change the genre of each of the films’ story. For TOY STORY 4, we are doing a type of story we have not done before: a love story. It’s a story about a relationship between Woody and Bo Peep. "




TOY STORY 4, which will be directed by Lasseter and produced by Susman, is slated for release on June 16, 2017.





GIGANTIC (#Gigantic)


Things are looking up at Walt Disney Animation Studios – way up. GIGANTIC, Disney’s unique take on “Jack and the Beanstalk,” will feature music from Oscar®-winning songwriters Kristen Anderson-Lopez and Robert Lopez, who greeted D23 EXPO fans in signature style—in song—alongside Director Nathan Greno (“Tangled”) and Producer Dorothy McKim (“Get A Horse!”).


Announcements of Movies Coming Soon from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm!   via  www.productreviewmom.com    

“I always wanted to be part of the Disney legacy,” said Greno. “I loved those classic stories brought to life—‘Snow White’ or ‘Cinderella’—in a way that made those films the definitive version for generations. I want to carry on that tradition by bringing ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ to modern audiences. We’re taking parts of the story we all remember and adding twists and turns, emotion and humor.”



Set in Spain during the Age of Exploration, Disney’s GIGANTIC follows adventure-seeker Jack as he discovers a world of giants hidden within the clouds. He hatches a grand plan with Inma, a 60-foot-tall, 11-year-old girl, and agrees to help her find her way home. But he doesn’t account for her super-sized personality—and who knew giants were so down to earth? GIGANTIC hits theaters in 2018

COCO (#Coco)


Director Lee Unkrich (“Toy Story 3”) and Producer Darla K. Anderson (“Toy Story 3”) revealed the title of their upcoming film: Disney·Pixar’s COCO is the celebration of a lifetime, where the discovery of a generations-old mystery leads to a most extraordinary and surprising family reunion. 


Announcements of Movies Coming Soon from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm!   via  www.productreviewmom.com     Announcements of Movies Coming Soon from Disney, Pixar, Marvel, and Lucasfilm!   via  www.productreviewmom.com

"As artists and filmmakers, we couldn't help but be drawn to the striking visuals of Dia de los Muertos,” said Unkrich and Anderson. “But it was the celebration's core themes of family, remembrance and connection across generations that resonated within and truly inspired us. Dia de los Muertos is as singular as the Mexican culture, while at the same time completely universal in its message. 


“In our story,” they continued, “the celebration of Dia de los Muertos serves as the perfect backdrop for our main character to ask where he comes from, what his place is within his family, and how families stay woven together across time through the simple act of remembrance."
