I love watching people try squeeze cheese in can for the first time. It's almost always funny as hell.

Freebie Friday!




Welcome to another edition of Freebie Friday, where I tell you what free samples, gift cards and full sized products I received in the mail and how you can get them too. Someone asked me why I do a 'Freebie Friday" each week, so I'll tell you.

A while back I listed all the free samples and wins that I had received that previous year and so many people didn't believe that I could have gotten so many free things. So I decided to prove it by taking a picture every week and sharing the sites that I found the links to the freebies at. So now you too can get great free samples coming to your mailbox each week.

  You can find links to a lot of great samples at Hey It's Free and Freebie Shark.


This week I received:

A box of samples from PinchMe...
A samples of dog food
Sample of Dog Pill Pockets
Sample bag or Popcorners
A Scotch Brite scrubbing dish cloth

A $5 Amazon gift card from Crowdtap. For those keeping track that makes $230 in Amazon gifts cards for all of 2016 from Crowdtap.

Review: Daily Goodie Box



The Daily Goodie Box has been around since about July of last year. I signed up for an account right after I heard about them and did what they said to do in order to get a Daily Goodie Box. I logged in every day for a while and checked out my messages and filled out my profile. I was not offered a Daily Goodie Box until recently and it was offered to me free in exchange for a blog review. So while it's a great box, they aren't easy to get. Hopefully more people will get them in the future. They are 100% free, you don't even have to pay for shipping. And for a free box it's a nice sampler box of products. So here's what was in my box.


RawRev - Raw Superfood Bars- While I'm not big on protein or meal bars these weren't too bad. They weren't bad tasting and are just big enough for a snack.

Herr's - Tangy BBQ Popped Chips- These had a really good taste to them. Ken and I both liked them and I like BBQ flavored chips to begin with so win win for me.

Dream Water - Sleep Powder- I've tried this before and while it didn't help me sleep that doesn't mean that it won't work for someone else.

Alsa - Energy Drink Mix- After drinking this I didn't feel like I had more energy but it has a nice flavor to it.

Natralia - Anti Itch Soothing Cream- It says this is good for bug bites, poison ivy and itchy skin. I put a little on my arm and it's not greasy and didn't irritate my skin but it does have an odor similar to Vick's VapoRub. I don't mind that but others might.

Gary Poppins - Simply Sea Salt- I've never been a fan of sea salt but this doesn't have too much on it to make it really salty. There's enough to taste the salt but it's a nice flavor. The popcorn was pretty good.

EM+Pact - Protein & Energy Bars- Ken and I shared this bar as well so we could both see how it was. For an energy bar it's not bad. It was a good taste and we both liked it for what it was. But neither of us felt extra energy.


All they ask you to do is try the products and leave reviews for the products you got in order to be eligible for more Free Goodie Boxes. As you guys already know, I'm a fan of all these types of boxes. I love all the different subscription boxes and it's really nice to be able to try new to me products for free. This is a great box to try for.

Are you ready to sign up? Here's the link. Daily Goodie Box.

Disclosure: This box was given to me in exchange for a blog review.

Review: Krusteaz Cinnamon Swirl Crumb Cake Mix



I don't make a lot of cakes from scratch, not when I can buy a cake mix for $1 and only have to add egg, water or oil to it. Unless I already have all the ingredients at home, I usually use a cake mix. This mix was really easy to make. 

It came with the cake mix and the cinnamon mixture. You mix together the cake mix with an egg and water and drop half into your cake pan. The add a little of the cinnamon mixture and top with the rest of the cake batter, then swirl it together and lastly the rest of the cinnamon mixture on top.




Bake for 45 minutes and out comes a cinnamon swirl cake. It was quite good too. When a box of cake mix only costs around a dollar, it's more economical for me to use that than to buy all the ingredients to make it from scratch. Especially when they taste just as good as the from scratch cake. It's damn near impossible to get it to look like the picture on the box but it was good.



Do you make cakes from scratch or use a boxed mix?

Favorite Video of the Week



So the reason I found this one funny is because my mom loved pickled pigs feet and she could get a jar of them at least once a month when we were kids. My brother and I still eat them but I'm not allowed to open the jar in the apartment because the smell makes Ken want to gag. he said it smells like a morgue and someone dumped a jar of embalming fluid on the floor. To me, all I smell is vinegar. As kids we used to eat pickled eggs, which I really didn't care for as well as the spicy pickled vegetables and those are the bomb! I don't eat as much pickled pigs feet anymore but I still love the spicy pickled vegetables. So I can really understand the reaction of these kids since they've never had it before. It is a very strange flavor and it's served cold.

I spent part of the day with my grandson a couple of weeks ago. Falcor loves playing with Logan when he comes over.
