#ZyrtecParks Unleashed: Win a Samsung Galaxy Tablet 10.1 and more – 6 winners (updated 10/11)

Ah, fall.  Well, almost.  With fall comes a new round of allergies for many- and Zyrtec, maker of one of the most popular lines of allergy remedies, has a fun new Zyrtec Parks Unleashed Game on YouTube to put some prizes in some of our pockets!  Its nice that Zyrtec has decided to make such a miserable thing like allergies and at least put  a fun spin on things!  Plus, the FABULOUS Queen Latifah is the spokesperson for the game- and she’s discovered first hand just how miserable allergies can be, so she wanted to put her name behind the game which is a fun way to learn more about allergies while earning PRIZES and free stuff!!  I know my son in particular is already struggling with seasonal allergies and I fear they are just beginning for the fall season.  Poor kid.

The Zyrtec Parks Unleashed Game is really easy to play and there are tons and tons of prizes you can win!  Jack, Reuben, Earl and Beau (dogs)  will steal your (Galaxy) tablet- and you have to trail them through the park.  On your way through the park you’ll meet various characters who share hints and facts with you- each time you do an activity, make matches, etc, you can win Facebook badges and prizes like Samsung Galaxy Tablets!    **Please note, in order to play you WILL need to register but I did it myself just to see how long it takes and its quick and painless.  Once you DO register to play, you’ll get access to  a printable coupon for $7 off any Zyrtec product!

Each “round” of the game I will have trivia questions for you to answer as part of the giveaway entries- as a “Zyrtec Parks Unleashed” Blogger, I will be offering prizes each round for you to win (This is in addition to the game itself!) and the final week, I’ll be giving away a Samsung Galaxy Tablet for a grand prize- choosing from one of the 4 previous weeks winners!  [click to continue…]

Way to Save: Make your Own Coffee!

Each week Just Trying To Save Money brings us a new way to save big! Check out this weeks, Way To Save!

Our way of living may not be for everyone, but we decided when we had children that one of us would always be home with our kiddos until they were all in school. Yes that means cutting out one whole source of income, but that means no daycare costs and we get the joy of raising our children! With that said, we need to stay on a strict, tight budget to do so! So our family is always looking for new ways to save money or cut non-essentials out of our budget! With just one income and at least 3 more years before I can return to work for our family to have 2 incomes again, we need to save every penny we can! So I am always adjusting and re-adjusting our budget and over looking our expenses all the time! Here is one way I found to help the bottom line!

Did you know? Labor Day

New York, 1900. “Labor Day parade crowd, Main Street.” Detroit Publishing Company Source: Shorpy
Labor Day is dedicated to celebrating the achievements of the American Worker. First celebrated in New York City on September 5th 1882 by a parade of 10,000 workers. Founded when many in America worked 16 hour days in harsh work environments. Labor Day became a national holiday in 1894 after President Grover Cleveland signed the bill into law. Interestingly enough he was a staunch opponent of organized labor groups but pushed Labor Day through congress to stop riots that were breaking out across the US.
