I am a mom and having a hot meal every night is important to me. There are many nights of the week that my kids have sports practice, games or church and we are often pressed for time. On nights when we are pinched for time and need to cook and eat in a hurry, I turn to Hamburger Helper. I love that Hamburger Helper offers us a good variety of foods to choose from so that we never run out of options. Our current favorite Hamburger Helper flavor is the Lasagna. It is quick to prepare, taste good, and the whole family enjoys it. We simply add a tossed salad and side of cooked vegetables and we have a complete meal.
I am excited to share 2 new Hamburger Helper flavors with you: Ultimate Beef Stroganoff and Cheesy Italian Beef. The new Ultimate Beef Stroganoff Hamburger Helper provides you with a rich roast beef flavor and a pasta with a decadent sour cream flavored sauce mix. While the new Cheesy Italian Beef Hamburger Helper features real Italian herbs and pasta that is enhanced with naturally flavored Italian-style sauce mix. I can appreciate that these 2 new quick and easy dinner options have naturally flavored mixes and rich, tasty sauces. They both sound like flavors that my family will enjoy.

If the truth must be told, I have mold and you may have mold too and don't even know it yet. It seems that mold grows in moist environments and in room temperature conditions. Mold likes to hide in our bathrooms, under our kitchen sinks, in our window sills and even in our refrigerator seals. Ick! But I have good news for me and you. There is something that we can do about the unsightly mold that we may be hiding. If we use regularly scheduled cleaning with a bleach-based product then we can effectively kill mold, for good!
Before finding out about the new Tilex® Mold Stain & Mildew Stain Remover products, I had been using an old toothbrush and household bleach to clean my bathtub tiles and corners. Any time I would see the pink water stains or black mold starting to collect, I would dampen my old toothbrush in bleach and scrub away. While this process works for me, I don't like the scent of household bleach. It smells unpleasant and I have to have the area well ventilated when I use it. This is why I am happy to find out about the new Tilex® Mold Stain & Mildew Stain Remover in Refreshing Breeze. It is supposed to have the cleaning power that we expect from Tilex as well as a new refreshing scent that we will enjoy. Not only will our tile and tub look cleaner but it will smell fresh too.
Tilex has a new lineup of products and to celebrate these new products, Tilex is hosting an exciting sweepstakes with a lot of amazing prizes! You may enter this giveaway on the Tilex Facebook page and you will have a chance to win one of three grand prize 40” flat screen TVs, or one of ten runner up prizes of a Netflix subscription. Entries for the Cancel The Mold Show Sweepstakes must be submitted by March the 16th, 2012 and you even get extra entries for sharing the giveaway with your friends. How great is that!
Be sure to enter the giveaway because you can't win if you don't enter. If you would like more info on Tilex® Mold Stain & Mildew Stain Remover check out their website or their facebook page.

I am a member of SocialSpark and they have teamed up with clipix for this fun review opportunity. You may find our more information on clipix by watching this YouTube video if you would like.
I am an at home mom and it seems that I am always on the computer when the kids are at school. One of the first things that I do after I drop the kids off at school is settle down to my email and a cup of coffee. I enjoy the content of the emails that I subscribe too and I often find myself either trying to bookmark a site for later or trying to hand write a recipe down for later use. While these processes work for me, they are not ideal. I find myself wondering did I write that down or did I save it in my bookmarks? Sometimes I lose the information completely. This is why I am happy to have found clipix. Clipix is a free, easy to use, online tool that will help me to organize my online findings better. I can keep all of my online goodies on one page and have them any time that I need them with a few clicks of a button.
To see how clipix works, you may visit their website and set up a free account. To make this process painless, you may link your clipix account to your facebook or twitter account. My account is linked to my twitter account and it was easy to set up. Once you have an account you simply drag the clipix program button to your bookmark toolbar. Now any time you are on a page that you want to save for later, you simply click your clipix button on your bookmark tool bar and choose a category to save your article too. Yes, it really is that easy!
There are step by step, easy to read instructions that tell you how to create your bookmark tool bar and how to drag the clip button to it. I like that I can create my own clipboard or use one of the pre titled clipboards that are already set up by clipix. I also love that I am able to choose who I share my clip boards with. I may share it with the public, or friends or only me. There is even an iPhone App and you may take all your clipboards with you on the go and you can add new clips by taking photos of things you see. How cool is that!
Please visit clipix if you would like to sign up for a free account. I can see myself using this program to save gift ideas, recipes, sales adds and even other blogs that I would like to visit often. How would you use clipix?
