Now that school has started, kids everywhere are on homework duty and that leaves moms and dads with laundry duty. Parents spend their hard earned money on wardrobes for the new school season, so making sure we get our money's worth is a must. 

Finding a laundry detergent that removes stains time and time again, will ensure that your child's school clothes last all year, because as parents, we know that stains from school lunches, football practice and art class are inevitable. 

Getting clothes to look brand new every time you wash, usually means a trip to the store to purchase the expensive big bottle of detergent, but not anymore.



New Purex UltraPacks plus Oxi will not only remove your toughest stains and save you money, but you won't be left lugging around a big bottle of detergent anymore either. 

Fights Stains

The new Purex UltraPacks plus Oxi laundry pods can handle just about anything, with a formula so powerful, it works to fight over 101 of your toughest stains. Your family's clothes will look bright, white, and clean every time, as their concentrated DirtLift Action formula has 2x the cleaning power* in every drop. 

Saves You Time
Between soccer games, dance class, and PTA meetings, parents need all the time they can get, and saving you even just a few minutes on laundry can make all the difference. Purex recognizes that parents are busy and makes doing laundry, quick and easy, two words parents love to hear. 

There's no more measuring detergent, no more cleaning up messy spills and no more tipping the laundry detergent bottle over until you get the last drop. Purex UltraPacks plus Oxi detergent capsules contain a full load's worth of concentrated liquid detergent, so you can be sure each laundry pod will get the job done. 

Toss it in, add your clothes and you're done. Purex UltraPacks Plus Oxi detergent pods also give moms and dads an extra benefit, when it comes to other family members having laundry duty, they'll no longer have a reason to complain

Saves You Money

You'll no longer need to spend tons of money at the store on the big bottle of detergent, instead you can just buy a pack of new Purex UltraPacks Plus Oxi Detergent, giving  you more bang for your buck. Purex UltraPacks Plus Oxi Detergent helps fight stains while saving you money. The average family could save over $45 a year** just by using Purex UltraPacks plus Oxi, giving you more money to spend on the things you love.

Extra Benefits for Moms and Dads

Custom Fall Wreath Giveaway

Now that summer is over, kids are busy doing homework, moms are busy packing lunches and all parents are left with empty wallets from the investment we know as school supply lists. Fall will leave us spending even more money, buying bags of candy for trick-or-treaters and Halloween costumes for our kids, that costs as much as something right off the runway.

We can't forget about the craft shows that always have the cutest fall decorations that you just have to have, but need to spend an arm and a leg to get it.  As someone who's always enjoyed making crafts, I'v walked through more than enough craft shows to realize, most of the items can be made for a fraction of the cost.

I know some people always think, "Well, I'm just not a crafty person," but it has nothing to do with that, it's about your own creativity. I have run plenty of craft workshops with parents that have never made a craft in their life, and the looks on their faces after they've created something beautiful, is priceless. 

As craft show season picks up, there's no better time to start creating your own crafts, just in time for the fall season. With this project, there's no need to go to craft stores and buy expensive products, instead, you can make a fall wreath for $10.00 that looks festive and beautiful. 

Going to your local dollar store, whether it be Dollar Tree or Dollar General, will supply you with everything you need to make a custom fall wreath.

Supplies I purchased:

All of these are from Dollar General

Fun Acorns & Pumpkins.
Fun ribbon comes in all different patterns

Flowers come in all color
Clip-on flowers
Fun fall accessories




And the end result is..........






What better way to celebrate fall than a giveaway.
You have the chance to win a custom made fall wreath of your choice!!!

You have the option of a fall wreath as pictured above or you can choose a Halloween wreath which will include some of the elements above but will have some creepy crawly and spooky features added to it. Once the giveaway ends, I will work with the winner, selecting colors, accessories and other elements to create a beautiful custom wreath that will work perfectly in your home.
Good Luck to all who enter!
