Max Factor Makeup

Right now there is a great promotion online for MaxFactor makeup - if you visit this site, you can get 50% off four of "Gisele's Favorites for Fall" makeup items, plus free shipping and a free makeup bag!

I was recently given some samples of MaxFactor makeup to try (through BzzAgent) and received mascara, lipstick, blush, and a blush brush. I can truly say that I love the mascara and the lipstick. The mascara makes my lashes fuller than any other mascara I have tried, and the lipstick stays on for HOURS (like 12 hours!) through eating meals and everything! The blush is great, too, but just a little too light for me - I would have picked a darker shade to show more (although it is very natural looking).

Enjoy these savings!

Appliance Parts

Last week I ordered new drip pans for my Kenmore oven. I had contacted Sears parts online, and found out they were going to be about $50 to replace. Since that sounded like a rip-off, I got the part number and searched online for a better deal. I came across this great website where I was able to get the same drip pans, including shipping for about $30. If you need any replacement parts for any appliances you own, check here first! We got a great deal and they have great customer service.

Trading Toys!

A great new website I recently heard about is This is a site that allows you to search for toys your kids may want, as well as list toys you would like to trade out. It works similar to a library - you "borrow" a toy and allow others to borrow the toys that you list. The best part? It is FREE! Currently they are waiving their $1 charge per item. You can also buy toys on this site if you choose.

A second site that has the same idea is This site includes sections such as "kids room decor" and is more geared towards educational toys, games and videos.

This is a great way to save money, help the environment, and help others who might not have the money for new toys. Great idea!
