More Gro Baby Love!

Think cloth diapering is not for you? Try Gro Baby hybrids FOR FREE and let me know what you think! They are offering a FREE Intro Set including their washable shell and DISPOSABLE soaker pads for bloggers who write about their product. Check out my review and see if you want to give them a try!

 THIS DEAL ENDS 10/20/09 at 12pm MST!

So I'm sure you've seen me post about my BIG LOVE for Gro Baby diapers for E & G. They truly are a revolutionary style of diaper that makes cloth diapering quick and convenient even in my crazy household. Well, here is proof that good things can get even BETTER!htt...p://

The Natural Baby Company is now offering BIODEGRADABLE (disposable or flushable!) soaker pads to make taking Gro Baby on the go even simpler! (I cannot thank you enough for this development!) These environmentally -friendly pads simply stick in to the Gro Baby shells and can be flushed (simply tear, shake out contents into the toilet, and throw away the rest), composted, or tossed (they break down after only 50-150 days compared to centuries!) after use. They also use a much healthier amount of gel crystals (3g vs up to 20 in commercial sposies!) to keep them super absorbant without fearing for my kiddos safety. I was lucky enough to be a tester for this product* and I could find absolutely NOTHING that I would have wanted changed. The pads provide excellent coverage and leave no areas of the shell exposed. They contained all messes and even worked out for overnight for my then-one-year-olds. Perfect for travel or just busy days!If you are on the fence about trying cloth diapering or if you want to be more environmentally responsible without putting poo in your washer (yes, this is the STILL the biggest question I get about cloth diapering) give Gro Baby a whirl.
*The Natural Baby Company is offering a FREE set to bloggers who write about this product. Would I have posted this rave review without this offer? ABSOLUTELY! This is just another example of The Natural Baby Co. showing gratitude for all their loyal customers. They truly are the cream of the crop for supporting those who send their dollars their way.

Does anyone really care what you think? Yes! Companies want to know and are willing to pay you for your feedback. Surveyhead is one great company that charges no fees to join and is proven to pay out! Plus, get an extra $5 just for registering with them! Payout is at $25 and you can chose to receive Paypal or any number of other reward options. They always seem to have many survey options to choose from and I have completed surveys paying up to $5 for just minutes of my time.

Note: Some of the actual survey companys do take quite awhile to validate the data so this is not a "quickie cash" option.

Savvy Shopper Tip-Manage Your Mail

Create an alternate email address to be used specifically for bargain shopping. You can use this address to sign up for coupons, earn rewards points, and register for extra saving with your favorite brands without flooding your personal email inbox. Keeping these emails separate also allows you to take time to deal with them on YOUR schedule and can help you maximize your savings!

My Points

One of my favorite ways to earn money is by using reward sites or cards to make my searching or shopping do double-duty. MyPoints is an excellent reward site that features THOUSANDS of retailers and opportunities to earn points which can be redeemed for a wide variety of gift cards or other rewards. I highly recommend creating an alternate email address to use MyPoints effectively because they send out many emails daily that give you chances to earn points just by reading. You may feel a bit overwhelmed if they are flooding your regular inbox daily.


Swagbucks is probably my absolute FAVORITE way to earn extra cash by doing absolutely nothing that I wouldn't be doing anyway. Rack up the bucks by simply searching the web as you normally would and trade them in for awesome gift cards, prizes, paypal, and MORE!
Currently, I have the Swagbucks Toolbar installed and use it to perform all my searches. But some members are taking advantage of the Facebook, Twitter, and Swagbucks Blog to really maximize their experience.
Best part? I can actually have my Swagbucks account linked to my real email addy and only see a newsletter from them (containing a swagcode!) once a month or less! No Spam!
What are you waiting for? Start Swagging!
