Enter To Win A Carmex Gift Pack (2 New Click Sticks & A Picnic Blanket)* CLOSED*

* The Giveaway has ended.

I love Carmex! So, I was very excited when I opened up a box from them recently and discovered 2 new Carmex click sticks (moisturizing lip balm) in it, along with a super cool picnic blanket.

My kids quickly ran off with the click sticks but they were nice enough to leave me the blanket- which folds up and Velcros together and has a handle and a zippered pouch (which I am keeping in the car- very handy).

The new flavors of Vanilla and Lime Twist are great (and they contain 3 additional moisturizers that are not found in the original Carmex line).  The flavor smell is a little bit more mild than I was expecting, but the best part to me is that they both contain SPF 15.  I just have to "think" about the sun and I instantly get a sunburn. =0)

Because Carmex loves their fans, they are currently offering a $0.50/1 coupon (on Facebook) valid on their new Lime Twist and Vanilla click sticks. Currently, the click sticks can only be found at Walmart, Walgreens, and CVS. 

Carmex is also giving one Affording Common Cents reader a chance to win a gift pack like I received.  The gift pack will include 2 click sticks (1 Vanilla and 1 Lime Twist) and the super cool picnic blanket.

How to Enter This Giveaway:

You can have up to 4 entries (per household) for this giveaway. Please make sure to leave a separate comment for each entry.

Entry #1) Visit Carmex and tell me what Carmex product you would like to try or what one is your favorite.

Entry #3) Like Carmex on Facebook and tell them that Affording Common Cents sent you (remember to come back here and leave a comment telling us that you did it). =0)

Entry #4) What flavor would you like to see Carmex come out with next?

Please make sure that you also leave your email address with your comment so that I may contact you if you the winner (the only reason I would use your email address for). I would suggest typing it up like this- affordingcommoncents (at) gmail (dot) com so that you don't get hit with spammers.

Open to U.S. residents only. The giveaway ends at 11:59 pm (PST) on 26 August 2011. One winner will be chosen at random from all the comments. I will email the winner and they have 48 hours to respond or a new winner will be drawn.

*Thank you to Carmex for giving me and one of my readers this awesome gift pack! They sponsored this giveaway but the opinions are mine alone and always will be. =0)

Hi Everyone!

Just a quick note to let you know that I am taking some time away from blogging.  I decided that I wanted to focus more time on my family, my house and myself (being on the computer does nothing for my girlish figure).  =0)

Thank you to those of you who stopped by and followed me, left comments and made this all feel worthwhile. I hope to see you around.

Home Depot Kid's Workshop: Make A Valet Organizer (6/4)

Tomorrow (6/4) is the Home Depot's Kid's Workshop.  They will be making a Valet Organizer from 9 AM to Noon (in my experience it is better to get their earlier rather than later).  And on June 18th, they will be having a special Father's Day Kid's Workshop where they will get to make a Lil' Toolbox.  I think Dad would be happy to receive either one of these. =0)

The Home Depot provides the projects FREE of charge and also provides the necessary equipment to get the job done. Each kid completing the project will receive a pin and certificate. If it is your first time, you will also receive an orange apron to keep.

My kids love going to these clinics! They always seem to have a sense of accomplishment when they're finished building their own projects. Plus, it is a great way to entertain them for FREE on a Saturday morning.(Projects are designed for kids 5 -12.)
