Bissell PowerForce Turbo Bagless Vacuum - $52.92 After Rebate!

Walmart has the Bissell PowerForce Turbo Bagless Vacuum now priced at $62.92, it was $69.94 - this is BOTH an online price AND the price IN-store! (Walmart is currently the lowest price out there to pair with the rebate)

My last blog post, Bissell Mail-In Rebate, provides the link to a printable Bissell Mail-In Rebate - for this vacuum, you can get $10 back!!!
You end up paying $52.92 after the rebate!!!

Now, with all the dollar sense, HOW WELL DOES IT WORK?
Fantastic! Oh my! I am in love!!! I am BEYOND happy with my vacuum purchase. The power of the suction is beyond par for this price range. It pulled up cat hair and dust bunnies that my other vacuum wouldn't get (and that one wasn't that old!). There's also a HEPA filter, which makes me happy in helping keep the air in our home clean!
I personally HIGHLY recommend this vacuum!!!

Make toilet cleaning a breeze!

Who likes to clean toilets? Not me!!! Let me tell you about a product I tried from BzzAgent that makes cleaning toilets a breeze!

Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel

This picture is what is included in the box of Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel. The wand was very easy to snap together. The gel discs are already inside the wand's clear part, so there is no need for you to touch it!

The next step is to remove the snap-on lid off the wand and then press the wand inside your toilet up by the rim. (see my lovely demonstration)

Remove wand from the toilet and you are done!!!
The gel disc stays put by itself. When the toilet is flushed the water will run over the disc and keep it clean and smelling fresh!

Some side notes of Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel:

The first day of use the smell is a bit powerful for those that are sensitive to smells - as for my family, we loved the strength of the smell.

I would be a little concerned if you have toddlers that like to investigate things - as they may see the gel disc in the toilet and what to know what it is and touch it - I don't think that would be a good idea, but definitely might happen. With that said, I don't know that I would recommend it for families with toddlers. But for all other households, I highly recommend Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel!!

I am a BzzAgent member, which is a Word-of-Mouth Program, and I received this product in a SC Johnson Smart Easy Spring Cleaning Kit.

Golden Age Cheese Co - Naturally tasting, scrumptious cheese!

Golden Age Cheese Co. sent me some cheese recently to try.

Based in New York, Golden Age Cheese Co. is a family owned and operated business that started back in 1983. Their mission: to produce the best natural quality cheese.

What I tried:
* Sharp Cheddar Block Cheese
* Plain Cheese Curds (My favorite!)
* Bacon & Chive Cheese Curds
* Cajun Cheese Curds

My thoughts: FANTASTIC!!! Golden Age Cheese makes delicious cheese, hands down! The cheese curds were large in portion size, non-greasy, and creamy. It was very naturally tasting along with being healhty. The Bacon & Chive Curds were bacon packed with a somewhat smoked flavor (maybe from the bacon). These cheese curds would be perfect for snacking on or serving at Graduation Parties/Weddings/More! I sliced the block cheese and used it on cold sandwiches and also grilled cheese - absolutely scrumptious!

Their packaging and shipping process is fast and secure. The cheese came wrapped in insulated bubble wrap with an ice pack to ensure the cheese stays as cold as possible during shipping! Excellent!

I DO recommend Golden Age Cheese - Make sure you check them out with the following links:

Swag Bucks - The easy route to earning prizes, gift certificates, and more!

Swag Bucks

What are Swag Bucks?
Swag Bucks are the web's premier digital dollar. Accumulate at your own pace and redeem them for exclusive prizes.  (reference Swag Bucks FAQ Section)

Swag Bucks is a VERY easy way to earn points (called Swag Bucks) that you can accumulate and redeem for various prizes and sweepstakes, including my favorite, Amazon Gift Certificates!

For instance, right now, if you accumulate 450 Swag Bucks, you can that redeem those 450 SB for a $5 Amazon Gift Certificate. Once your Gift Certificate posts to your Swag Bucks account, then you simply add it to your Amazon account and you can either spend it that day or save it (like me) and accumulate your totals - this is a GREAT idea to help with Birthdays/Graduation/Christmas gifts! (Who out there doesn't like free stuff?)

I've already redeemed for over $90 total in Amazon Gift Certificates - all earned with very little effort on my part, and very little time! 

There are numerous (I haven't counted, but I'm sure there's over 100 different ones) things you can redeem your Swag Bucks for, like stickers, posters, gift certificates (not just for Amazon, they have other stores), sweepstakes where you can try for a chance to win big ticket items, and more!

How do you earn Swag Bucks?
Easily, that's how! No, really, I'm being serious!
Searching, like you do on Google, is the most common/easiest route. All you need to do is download the search bar to your computer (no worries folks, no viruses, and it does NOT slow down your computer). You may not earn Swag Bucks on each and every search you do, so just keep searching! When I want to go to a particular website, for instance Facebook, instead of typing in the URL, I search for it with my Swag Bucks Search Bar, this helps better your chances of earning more SB!

Surveys, they are easy and usually short surveys, but sometimes longer ones - still easy to do!

Shopping online, if you are already planning on making an online purchase, check to see if the retailer is a supported on Swag Bucks and use their links, then you earn SB's for your purchases!

Daily Polls, these are a cinch, and take one click and almost zero thoughts. Basically, a question with multiple choice answers, and you choose the one that best fits you!

Watching Videos, I've been watching Swag Bucks Videos more often lately, as I've found the cooking videos to be very interesting and informing. And yeah, I like to earn more Swag Bucks!

There are other ways you can earn Swag Bucks, many more ways. Make sure you check out the Swag Bucks Blog daily also, as sometimes they hide a Swag Bucks code or two in there.
