Update: Entry #2 won.

I have the most obnoxious, tangly, frizzy, curly hair and have never fell “in love” with any shampoo or conditioner.

I think I may really like like Wen!  I used it on my hair for a month. It worked great on my hair, noticiably making it softer.  It also seemed to straighten it a little, which seems weird.  I straightened my hair after using Wen and it only took 45 minutes; it usually takes me over an hour.  Yes, that is using my ceramic straightner and curling iron.

So what’s the big deal with Wen? Well, it’s a conditioner that you use with no shampoo before or after. Really.   From their site “Wen cleanses as it conditions, with no detergents or harsh chemicals. It’s all-natural…makes color lasts longer” and the results (at least on my hair) were much softer hair.

I think this product would work best on people who have thick hair like mine.

Cuckoo Level: 4.5 out of 5 (because its price is higher then what I normally pay for conditioner)

Giveaway:

A free full-size bottle of Wen Sweet Almond Mint Cleansing Conditioner is coming to the winner!

After telling my friends and husband about Baby’s First Phone Call, they all said (in their own way) “and why didn’t I know about this when I was in the hospital calling 20 people and telling the same story over and over again!”

How does Baby’s First Phone Call work?

  1. Before the baby is born, you enter the names and phone numbers of all the people you want to notify when the baby arrives.
  2. After the baby is born, you make a single phone call and leave a personal voice-mail message of any length with all the details you want to share; I would suggest information such as baby’s health, the hospital and room number you’re in, and whether and when you’d like to receive visitors.
  3. They get to hear the happy news straight from you and if they don’t answer it leaves them a message.

There will be 4 winners, each receiving a $50 Gift Certificate for Baby’s First Phone Call. These are transferable; meaning you will be able to give these as gifts at baby showers!  They also don’t expire so you can hold on to them until you or someone you know is having a baby.  SWEET: they are for unlimited amounts of people that you want on your calling list.

What a great baby shower gift!

Cuckoo Level: 4 out of 5 (because I think their price plans starting at $20 are a little high)

HERE’S HOW TO ENTER TO WIN:

  1. Leave a comment telling me who you wouldn’t have on your calling list, haha, just kidding (well, if you want to go for it!)  OR tell us who you would want on your list or who you would give this certificate to.

Optional: here are ways to earn extra entries, you must submit another comment for each extra entry:

  1. Subscribe to my email newsletter. It is on the top left-hand corner of this page.
  2. Become a follower of Cuckoo For Coupon Deals on Facebook.

This giveaway has ended. A third party site, Random.org, has selected the winner.

The winner is: Entry #9, Bonnie P, who said “I have never tried it before”

I can’t stress enough that this is a different kind of lotion. It feels different when you put it on, silky is the best word I can think for it. It isn’t thick and sticky like some other lotions, and it dries very quickly when you put it on.

I like how it is for the whole body, including the face, and how it is safe for children because it is hypo-allergenic. This way it is in all-in-one purchase. I used it on my face and it didn’t cause any breakouts. I am very careful with what I put on my face. Many of you may have noticed I don’t wear any foundation or powder on my face because I feel like they make my face breakout. I was glad the lotion didn’t cause me any problems on my face!

It is great for moderately dry skin; I don’t know about severely dry hands though because Andrea (my friend with severely dry hands) felt like she needed the lotion re-applied to the severely dry areas quite often.

SkinMD is offering one lucky Cuckoo For Coupon Deals reader a free bottle of lotion (retail value $18). For the entire month of February our readers can also use coupon promo code “cfc4805” for 20% off online purchases here.

If you are looking in-stores, this product is sold at Health Essentials Nutrition in Spanish Fork, at various Walgreen’s and Kmart locations, and at many other pharmacies nationwide.

Giveaway has ended!!! See winners here.

Now as you can see in my pantry picture above, I am a cereal fiend and I eat a box a week by myself. Just ask my husband. General Mills provided me with a free cereal coupon through My Blog Spark, and I wanted to taste-test it, to see if taste was affected by the reduced sugar content. If you haven’t heard, GM has committed to single digit grams of sugar per serving in kids cereals. I was game to taste test.

I got one box of Lucky Charms; I was in the mood for a classic.  Loved it. Reduced sugar? I couldn’t tell; in fact, my 2 1/2 year old daughter even ate the brown pieces instead of just the marsh mellows!

Now General Mills, through My Blog Spark, has also provided me with 3 more coupons for free cereal, each coupon is good for up to $6 on any General Mills cereal; so you can get the BIG boxes!  I am giving these away to 3 lucky readers and will mail them off to the 3 winners.

HERE’S HOW TO ENTER TO WIN

1) Leave a comment telling me what General Mills cereal you love the most. Be sure to leave your first name & email/blog address.

After that, here are other ways to enter: (Please, make sure that you submit extra comments if you do these.)

2) Either subscribe to my email newsletter or become a follower on Facebook. (If you are already, thank you and you get that 2nd entry if you leave a comment noting that you follow)

3) Follow me on Twitter. (If you are already, thank you and you get that 3rd entry if you leave a comment noting that you follow)

4) Blog/Tweet about the giveaway. (Again, leave a comment to let me know)

This Giveaway has ended: Winner was Entry #23, Ashley.

I received a copy of Pick Another Checkout Lane, Honey.  Other then the free copy of the book for me to review and the free copy they gave me to give away to one of my readers, I was in no other way paid for this review and this is my honest opinion of the book:

You should read the FREE 26 pages of ABC’s of Couponing eBook!

I wish I would have bought it to give to my sisters-in-law for Christmas instead of giving them the gifts I got them.  I used coupons to score amazing deals on their presents; but those are only going to last so long.  This book would do much more to seriously change their lives.  You see, even though I coupon and have tried to explain to them the dramatic savings I score, there is really so much to couponing you need to be taught it in a class (as I was), watch training videos, or by buying and reading this book.

Pick Another Checkout Lane, Honey is loaded with funny comics showing how Krazy coupon shoppers live.  I related to all of them and my husband agreed I could be the lady in the comics. The book starts out explaining the why of couponing.  This is why this would be a great gift for people who are not couponers yet.  There are some people who don’t understand that you can get name-brand cereal for drastically less then generic.   Or they don’t believe it, until the read the in-depth how.

Every trick it took me months to learn the hard-knock way at the checkout lane was laid out in this 250 page book.  I wish I had read it before I started couponing to save me massive amounts of trial-and-error and the many times I had coupons denied or spent more then I was planning.  One example is their list of categories for coupon binder organization.  I had 10 broad category tabs in my coupon binder.  I have skipped out on deals because I couldn’t find a coupon; for example, a coupon for Ranch dressing could have gone in my old system under my canned/boxed foods tab or my produce tab, but it really didn’t fit in either.  I recently bought more tabs and used the categories they suggested.  I no longer have problems finding coupons because they only fit under one category now, and the categories are organized similar to most grocery stores aisles so similar coupons are by each other.  For those of you who don’t know what a category tab is, the entire way to clip, store, and organize coupon binders is also laid out in the book.

Overall, I loved the book and was pleased with all their real-life experiences that I could relate to.  This is the best present you could ever give someone who needs to save big money in their life with money-saving tips on groceries, children’s clothes, and even gifts.  You can buy this book at PickAnotherCheckoutLaneHoney.com.  Right now it looks like it is about $15 including shipping.  Worth every penny.

I have also just learned that we have decided to give me one more copy of this book to giveaway to my readers!

HERE’S HOW TO ENTER TO WIN A COPY OF PICK ANOTHER CHECKOUT LANE, HONEY:

1) Leave a comment telling me if you want the book for yourself or to give to a friend in need of a shopping intervention. Be sure to leave your first name & email/blog address.
