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.

Do you want 50 free holiday cards from Shutterfly? Click here to go to Shutterfly for information on how you can get 50 free cards this holiday season, and make sure to select Clever 1000 as the referral source.

Be sure to check out the following types of cards:

Christmas invitations
Thanksgiving cards
Hanukkah cards

This post is part of a series sponsored by Shutterfly. I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do.

I loved Captain Crunch when I was growing up, but usually only got it when I spent the night with a friend because my parents made us eat "healthy" cereal.

We try and start getting to bed earlier and I make sure necessary school supplies are ready for the first day. We also make a trip to the school to see where classrooms are.

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.

Ahhhh, cereal....one of my favorite things to eat. And yes, as an adult I still LOVE Count Chocula. In fact, I sometimes hide it from the girls. I remember eating this long, long ago.

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.

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.
