Thrifty Blues and a Blue Review and Giveaway!

Hi everyone!
Well, I have just a couple of cute thrifted blues to show you today.
I got this set of two blue plaid napkins and they came with these two cute duck napkin holders. The 4 pieces were $1.29.
3-11 Bargain Finds 005 And I spotted this never before used, in the original box, teapot for $2.00 at the Flea market. It has a cute seaside theme to it.
3-11 Bargain Finds 0183-11 Bargain Finds 019 And although they aren’t totally blue, they do have blue in them, I just bought these two woven chargers at a local thrift store for $1.49 (the pair).
3-11 Bargain Finds 0113-11 Bargain Finds 012 So, that was my $4.78 thrifty purchases.
I also have a Blue Review.
I am a Proud Member of the Purex Insiders. And I recently had the opportunity to try out two new Purex products.
sponsors 003sponsors 004The new Purex Complete Crystals Softener is awesome! First of all, my favorite part is you add it to your wash right along with your clothes and detergent! No more waiting and forgetting to add softener to your rinse cycle!  I love that! A couple of interesting facts about this new product:
  • Purex Complete Crystals softeners are 92% natural, not oil based like most other fabric softeners.
  • It doesn’t leave that coating on your fabric.
  • Most fabric softeners shouldn’t be used on towels because they coat the fabric which hinders water absorption. Purex Complete Crystals will keep your towels fresh and absorbent!
  • Purex Complete Crystals is the first major brand softener that is 100% safe to use on children’s sleepware as it does not impair the flame retardant qualities like an oil based softener does.
  • You can find coupons HERE!
sponsors 005 Yay, Purex has hooked up with Zout! I have been using Purex detergent for years and I have also been a big fan and user of Zout Stain remover so, I am thrilled these two favorites have come together!thumb-pwz-equation
How it fights stains:
Purex Complete with Zout contains three powerful stain fighting enzymes and each enzyme targets a different type of stain:
  • Protease: Works against protein based stains such as grass and blood.
  • Amylase: Works against starchy stains such as chocolate or tomato sauce.
  • Mannanase: Works against guar, which is used as a thickener in many foods such as ice cream, barbecue sauce and salad dressings, because it’s super sticky.
You can use Purex Complete with Zout as a pre-treater for heavy stains as well as your everyday washing.
And as we all know, Purex has always been a great value and this new Purex Complete with Zout will be too! Pricing, depending on size and retailer, will be between $3.49-$7.99.
You can try Purex complete with Zout for free. Head to to “Prove it to Yourself” and request a free sample!
