Get Those Baskets and Eggs Ready

Easter is a week away, and whether you celebrate it or not everyone loves the candy that is associated with it. I have fond memories of waking up on Easter Sunday is pretty new dresses and hats then looking down and our stained multi-colored hands from dying eggs.

Nestle, the maker of Wonka has several different varieties of candies to fill those baskets and eggs with. Our family was lucky enough to get to sample a few different varieties and my favorite is the Scrumdiddlyumptious bars. Of course you can go old school too with perfect egg sized packages of Gobstoppers, Spree and SweeTarts.

Be sure to follow Wonka on facebook for news on new candies and giveaway opportunities.

Hershey Track and Field Games Giveaway

Physical activity is important at any age, but by encouraging your children to be active, you can help them gain an appreciation for a healthy lifestyle at a young age.

Since 1978, The HERSHEY
®’S Track & Field Games has helped more than 10 million children get active and learn valuable lessons such as sportsmanship and hard work. Now in its 34th year, HERSHEY’S Track & Field Games hosts thousands of boys and girls, ages 9 to 14, in nearly 4,000 North American communities. They will compete this spring and summer in track and field events ranging from the standing long jump and softball throw to a variety of running and relay races – and all at no cost of entry. All you need is a pair of shoes.

To program culminates each year with the HERSHEY’S Track & Field Games North American Final Meet in Hershey, Pa. Held each year in August, the North American Final Meet hosts 450 outstanding young participants in a fun and exciting, all-expenses paid weekend trip to Hershey. During the weekend, participants tour the world’s largest chocolate factory and visit Hersheypark amusement park, among other exciting activities.

Nine-time Olympic gold medalist Carl Lewis and Olympic decathlon legend Rafer Johnson will again return as HERSHEY’s Track & Field Games ambassadors in 2011.

To further encourage physical activity among kids and families, Hershey is teaming up with the Nike Reuse-A-Shoe program to collect old, worn-out athletic shoes to be recycled into Nike Grind, a material used in creating athletic and playground surfaces, as well as select Nike products. Program participants will be invited to bring used athletic shoes to state and provincial meets, which will then be recycled into Nike Grind. A HERSHEY’s Track & Field Games playground will be awarded to a participating local community as part of the program’s work with Nike’s Reuse-A-Shoe program. Since its inception in the early 1990’s, Nike’s Reuse-A-Shoe program has recycled more than 25 million pairs of athletic shoes into Nike Grind.

So lace up your children’s favorite pair of sneakers and get ready to cheer them on at the finish line! To learn more about HERSHEY’S Track & Field Games, and to find a local event in your area, please visit www.hersheystrackandfield.com.

Hershey and MyBlogSpark would like to give one lucky reader the prize pack pictured above.

Raisinets Giveaway


Did you know March 24th is National Chocolate Covered Raisin Day? It's true!

In celebration Nestle Raisinets wants to give 5 lucky readers two movie theater boxes each, one milk and one dark chocolate. How cool is that?

Fun Facts about NESTLÉ RAISINETS

All NESTLÉ RAISINETS are produced in Burlington, Wisconsin. They are made with select California raisins and a unique blend of NESTLÉ Chocolate.

RAISINETS were first introduced in 1927 by the Blumenthal Chocolate Company. Back then, it took two-and-a-half hours to produce one batch of RAISINETS! Now it takes between 45 and 60 minutes.

Today, NESTLÉ produces more than 1 million RAISINETS per hour! Slightly less than 30 million individual RAISINETS each day!

In 2010 NESTLÉ produced nearly 20 million pounds of Milk and Dark Chocolate RAISINETS, which is equal to approximately 8 billion individual RAISINETS. If you lined them up end-to-end, they’d stretch all the way around the earth about three-and-a-half times!

Last year NESTLÉ used almost seven million pounds of raisins and more than 10 million pounds of NESTLÉ Chocolate to produce both Milk and Dark Chocolate RAISINETS.

RAISINETS are the first chocolate covered raisin candy to have a cartoon series featured on its own YouTube channel! – www.youtube.com/raisinets

RAISINETS are a natural source of fruit antioxidants and have 30% less fat than the leading chocolate brands!


To enter: You must first "like" Raisinets on facebook and also "like" JANE4girls.

Once you like us both, go to Raisinets fb page and post this: I want to be a winner on JANE4girls.com blog.

Finally, come back here and post that you did all of the above.

5 random winners will be picked on Wednesday, March 30th at noon CDT. I will post the winners names and you will have 48 hours to get back to me with your mailing information.

Cinnamon Burst Cheerios Review and Giveaway

When MyBlogSpark and Cheerios asked me to host this giveaway I was very excited. One flavor or another of Cheerios has always been a staple in our house.

This newest edition to the Cheerios line-up allows you to provide your family with a delicious and nutritious breakfast that contains 20% of the Daily Value of fiber (or 5g per serving), has 9g of sugar, is low in fat, saturated fat free and naturally cholesterol free. Cinnamon Burst Cheerios cereal also provides at least 8g of whole grain per serving; at least 48g recommended daily. A true crowd pleaser, Cinnamon Burst Cheerios cereal is sure to kick-start any morning!

MyBlogSpark and Cheerios want to give one lucky reader their own Cheerios prize pack like the one pictured above.

To enter: Leave a comment on your favorite Cheerios flavor. My favorite is the Multi-Grain...I wish they came in a jumbo box like some of the other varieties.

Purex Complete Crystals Review and Giveaway


As a Purex Insider I was able to sample the new Purex Complete Crystals before they hit the stores.

First off I was skeptical about something you added at the beginning of your wash cycle and mixed it with your clothing vs adding it in the rinse cycle. But my opinion quickly changed.

It is 92% natural so the crystals don't leave an oily residue on your clothes. It actually infuses fibers with the long-lasting fragrance which makes it great to even use on towels. I normally wouldn't use fabric softeners on my towels because traditional softeners create and oily build up and make them less absorbent. My towels came out so soft and fluffy and most importantly absorbent.

Purex Complete Crystals Softener is available in three on-trend fragrances: Fresh
Spring Waters TM, Lavender Blossom TM, and Tropical Splash. TM.

Purex wants to give a few lucky readers their own sample to try out.

To enter: Leave a comment letting me know you want to try it. It's that simple

Entries will be taken until Tuesday, January 18th at noon CST. At that time I will pick the winners and you will have 48 hours to get back to me with your mailing information.

Shutterfly Holiday Card Giveaway




The holiday season is upon us. Hopefully the weather will get cooler in my parts (we have had record high temps the past few days). Around this time of year many people think about sending out holiday cards. It is always fun to get the kids and dogs together and pose for that perfect holiday picture to put on cards and send out to family and friends. I think it is fun to look back at the past years cards and see how much our family has changed over the years.

Shutterfly has several different holiday cards to choose from. Some of the ones I really like are the Joy to You, Hanukkah Wishes and Festive Family cards. One of the things that makes a great holiday card is the ability to customize it to your family. You can pick your own photos, customize the layout, then add family members names or other information to your cards.

Cheerios Untimate Family Vacation

Sponsored By



Cheerios® is giving you the chance to win a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, your ultimate family vacation. As part of a paid promotion for their “Do What You Love” Sweepstakes, Cheerios® is sponsoring my post today about what my ultimate family vacation would be. Read mine, Enter the Sweepstakes for a chance to actually win your own fantasy family trip or one of a bunch of other great prizes.

My Ultimate Family Vacation


Each year with money saved through being frugal I take the girls on a family vacation. It is one of the ways we make memories. Sometimes we drive, sometimes we fly, other times we cruise.

I think the best vacation would be having my three girls, plus all of our friends, and heading to a cabin in the mountains someplace. I would love it if there was snow, but not so cold that we could not enjoy ourselves. All electronic devices would be left at home and we would all have to communicate with real words, not texts (gasp). I really enjoy the outdoors more than anything and like to show my kids the beauty the world has to offer.

We try and make our vacations more about spending quality time with each other vs spending quantities of money on stuff. There are so many things do see and do that really don't cost a lot of money. That is where the memories are made.


Don't forget to enter the “Do What You Love” Sweepstakes, for a chance to win your own ultimate family vacation. I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.

Sniff, Sniff, Hooray!

Through MyBlogSpark and P&G, I was able to try out Gain dish-washing liquid....yes...for dishes! I am not a big fan of doing dishes by hand, in fact the more stuff that will fit into the dishwasher the better. But when we do have to wash dishes by hand I like to use a product that not only gets my dishes clean, but that also smells nice, but not overpowering. Gain dish-washing liquid comes in four scents, original, lavender, citrus splash and apple mango tango.

For more information about the new Gain Dishwashing Liquids, visit ILoveGain.com or YoAmoGain.com. In addition, be sure to “Like” Gain on Facebook and follow Gain on Twitter! You can like JANE4girls on facebook too!

This week you can also try Gain with the $1 coupon that will be out in the Sunday paper. This means you can probably get it for FREE at Wal-mart or Dollar General.

Happy New School Year


Hopefully everyone is back to the routine of getting up and getting the kids off to school. I know it took my family a few weeks to get back on track.

Nestle,
in partnership with Reading is Fundamental is sending me $50 worth of books to donate to a RIF school of my choice. RIF is the oldest and largest children's and family nonprofit literacy organization in the United States. All RIF programs combine three essential elements to foster children's literacy: reading motivation, family and community involvement, and the excitement of choosing free books to keep.


In addition Nestle sent me a $25 gift card to Walmart to help with school supplies, a NESQUIK® lunch box, product from RAISINETS® and a mix of free coupons from NESTLÉ® Pure Life, OVALTINE®, TOLL HOUSE® Refrigerated Cookie Dough, TOLL HOUSE Morsels, NESQUIK, COFFEE-MATE®, DRUMSTICKS® and CARNATION® BREAKFAST ESSENTIALS

But that is not even the best part! One lucky reader will also get their own Happy New School Year pack with the items mentioned above!

To enter: Leave a comment telling me ways you ease back into the school year.

Entries will be taken until Friday, October 15 at noon, CST. At that time I will post the winner and you will have 48 hours to get back to me with your mailing address or a new winner will be picked.

In addition to this contest, Nestle has another contest on their site
which is the Happy New School Year Sweepstakes . Feel free to enter every day for a chance to win the grand prize of $5,000 worth of back-to-school essentials plus a $2,000 NESTLÉ Literacy Grant for your school, as well as daily prizes from Crayola. This contest also ends on October 15th.
