Purex Fabric Softener Crystals Giveaway Winners......

Thank you all for entering my first blog giveaway! 

 I will be emailing you today - please respond with name & address so I can mail your prize! Thanks
Purex Fabric Softener Crystals Giveaway - 3 winners! 

Have you hear of Purex Complete Fabric Softener Crystals? As a Purex Insider, I have the opportunity to share with my readers some of the great things about the new 92% natural crystals!

Let me start by telling you about myself. I try to save a few dollars here & there but honestly, who doesn't? So the past two years after my hubby & I decided to build our version of our dream home, I decided to try to save more than a few dollars! I have started really concentrating on coupons & sales! I also sign up for every freebie I know I will use! 

I have even recently started "sweeping" no, not sweeping the floor haha! I have been doing that for years! "Sweeping" as in online or mail in sweepstakes & instant win games! I have learned most of the best tips from Sweeties Sweeps which is a great place to figure out how to get started! I have started following Sweetie's advice, "Win what you can't afford"!

Anyways, to get back on track, yes, I make my own laundry detergent & normally don't use fabric softener. Even though I absolutely love the smell that fabric softener leaves on my clothes and my towels! But, did you ever notice how fabric softener also makes your towels less absorbent? 

 Well, Purex has sent me an awesome sample pack of Purex Fabric Softener Crystal's to try & review & even a few to give away! How great is that?

 So I tried it! And guess what? I love it! The best part about Purex Crystals is that you pour a small amount directly in with your load of clothes in the washer & they stay in the washing machine longer to infuse your laundry with a great scent!   

When I first received my sample pack I was surprised at the small bottle I received! I thought it would only last a couple loads but I was pleasantly surprised at the small amount required for each load & how long that little bottle will last! 

 Purex Crystals are available in three scents:
Fresh Waters
Lavender Blossom
Tropical Splash! ~ My favorite! 

So what is it that makes Purex Complete Crystals Softener special?

 Most traditional fabric softeners are oil-based, which, as you may know, can coat the fabrics and as I mentioned earlier, make them less absorbent & sort of slick feeling.

But Purex is 92% natural and doesn't use oils which makes it safe for all loads and that includes the following: 
Children's Sleepwear
Performance Sportswear

Cloudy day... comfort food ideas?

 So, this weekend is my time to get my list figured out, plan ahead & shop ahead!

Want to earn free money? Who doesn't! Read this blog post to find out more!

Anyone interested in earning free money? There is a great thing called Swagbucks that gives you the opportunity to earn free money, basically virtual dollars basically for searching the internet. In the past month I have earned 955 "swagbucks" and with those I can purchase gift cards or other things at the Swagstore! For instance a $5.00 Amazon giftcard is 450 swagbucks. This past week I redeemed my 7th Amazon gift card! So $35.00 free for using the internet!

 Basically for using to search instead of say... google, I am earning free money!

 Let me know if you have any questions but you can click this link Swagbucks sign up

Thank you for reading!
