Hoover Elite Rewind Bagless Upright Vacuum Review and Giveaway

I had no idea how difficult it was to shop for a vacuum cleaner. We have been without a vacuum in our house for 6 MONTHS! Our central vacuum cleaner stopped working as well as our refurbished 1960’s monstrosity. With a family of 5 having no vacuum cleaner is a problem. Luckily I was able to borrow some friends vacuums while I was making my decision. I did all the research, tried out all the brands but was having such a hard time making a decision. As luck would have it, an opportunity to try out the Hoover Elite Rewind Vacuum (sold exclusively at Walmart), came my way. Here is some information from the manufacturer:

The Hoover Elite Rewind Bagless Upright Vacuum is lightweight, sleek and user-friendly. Designed using multi cyclonic technology, this lightweight upright vacuum has strong suction power for improved cleaning. It is powered by a 12 amp motor and has a 25 foot power cord allowing you to vacuum a large room without re-plugging. It features a system check indicator to signal when the dust cup is full or the filter needs cleaning. The re-usable filter reduces your maintenance costs. The Hoover Elite Rewind Bagless Upright Vacuum features auto cord rewind, on board tools for precision cleaning, a dusting brush to clean furniture and a handle for easy transport.

Shopping for Puppy Care Kit Items

A new friend of mine has an adorable little Dalmation puppy.  Today Baby B and I headed to Walmart to check out their selection of puppy treats, toys, neccessities and gift ideas.  We’d attempted this one day last week but the stock was very low at our store so we scrapped the mission and decided to give this a go today.  Given the  holiday season, I anticipated finding some holiday themed goodies, and I wasn’t wrong.  I wanted to create a little puppy care kit for my friend for her pup, and fill it with necessities and frivolities for her little poochie.

I guess because we often make treats for our Tobey that I don’t often check out the aisle where dog treats are- I couldn’t believe how big the variety and selection were!!   Tons of brands, flavors, textures, packaging sizes, and more.  One thing I liked was the range of pricing- you can find treats for very little and gourmet treats for a lot more.  Our local Walmart doesn’t seem to carry Milo’s Kitchen, which I was very disappointed to find, because it was something I specifically was looking to include in my puppy care kit.  Some of the Milk-Bone® Dog Treats boxes had coupons (check your local newspaper the week of December 11 for a money saving coupon on Milk-Bone® Dog Treats!) for $2 off of a Pup-peroni or Milo’s Kitchen purchase but either they were 100% sold out or really just don’t carry this brand!!  I was disappointed, because I wanted to grab some for Tobey’s stocking as well.

The first thing we noticed when we hit the pet department were Angry Birds dog toys.  Now, I know what that is but I’ve never played (and won’t- I know I’ll be hooked right away!!) but I wasn’t sure if my friend does, so we passed on those.  I did snap a photo.  They are fun!!  If you have  an Angry Birds fan in your house, and a pet, definitely worth a look.   [click to continue…]

Walmart’s Baby Steps & $100 Walmart Gift Card #Giveaway

Walmart.com’s Baby Steps offers a one stop shop for expectant and new parents.  Baby Steps doesn’t just offer a place to buy baby items and gear, although they definitely have a huge range of baby products, but they also have tips and techniques for many ages and stages of baby- both written and in some really entertaining videos!

Baby Steps has 2 main categories for tips and techniques, Changing and Feeding.  Once you select either of those options, you are asked to give the baby’s age (including expectant) and weight.  I was curious to see what the feeding recommendations would be for starting solids and very pleased to see that recommendations are given for developmental readiness and not just a date, which is not a one-size-fits-all response.  Once you click on a “sub” category you are shown several blocks with more information- clicking on that brings a short video up (and it is neither here nor there but all of the adults seem to be moving in s-l-o-w motion in the videos!?) and at the end the tips and techniques are shared.  The folks designing Baby Steps took a lot of time and put a lot of thought into this section of the Walmart site, and I have to applaud that.   [click to continue…]

*HOT* $3.00 Visine Coupon

I will be printing this for my husband’s stocking- he wears contacts and his eyes get so dry this time of year!! Great for allergy sufferers- time to stock up!!

Smurfs Shampoo from Suave available now

I grew up watching (and loving) The Smurfs.  Having them “back” and being able to enjoy the same familiar friends with my children has been a lot of fun for me.  I can’t wait to try some of the new, limited edition line of kids’ hair care and body care products from Suave– I have a feeling there will be a few in some stockings come Christmas at the Bargains house!  Even Baby B, who still hasn’t got much hair, needs detangler at least twice a day, because for some reason all of my kids get a rat’s nest no matter how little hair they have…and we LOVE Suave for kids.  They all smell great and I can bet my son will be happy the Smurfs products don’t all smell “like girls.”

My kids actually caught sight of the video on the Walmart site and have been asking to watch it again, again, and then again once more this morning, slowing down my writing!!  I guess that means we’ll be getting the DVD when it comes out (we didn’t get a chance to see this movie in the theaters) for sure.  There’s a REALLY cute mini movie of a Smurf “A Christmas Carol” you won’t want to miss on there too plus the movie trailer and footage from the “blue” carpet.  [click to continue…]
