Start While They Are Young

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PBM Products for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am a mom.  Most of you know this already.  Since I started my job a few months ago, I have become friendly with the people who work at the businesses I deal with on a daily basis.  Today, I had one of the guys ask me how many kids I had after hearing me on the phone with Ryan.  He was shocked when I told him I had a 15 year old son.  He said I looked too young.  I think he was trying to get on my good side.

Ryan will be graduating high school in a few short years, and I wish I could say that I have a college fund waiting for him to use.  There was never enough money to put some aside for him, or for either of the girls.  They will have to apply for student loans and scholarships.  If you have a baby, you can enter the Parent’s Choice Infant Formula Savings Sweepstakes.  The sweepstakes, created in partnership with PBM Products, LLC, a Perrigo Company, will provide one lucky winner with a $10,000 college scholarship in the form of a College Savings 529 Plan.  It runs until 11:59pm on August 1, 2011, so there is still plenty of time to enter.

Why I Love Walgreens

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walgreens for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have used several different pharmacies over the years, and recently I switched to Walgreens.  I am so glad that I did.  I love their Walgreens Brand Health & Wellness Products.  I recently tried their triple antibiotic ointment on Brandi's ears, and it worked really well.  And it was cheaper than the name brand stuff.  My philosophy is, why pay more for something just because of it's name? 

120x30_WalgrensTransparentLogoWalgreens also has this thing called the Walgreens Way to Well Fund™.  This fund will provide free preventive health tests as well as other health and wellness services and education to local communities. Some of those services will include preventive health tests through the National Urban League Health & Wellness Tour and vouchers redeemable in select stores.  I think this is an awesome thing.  As someone who is financially challenged, I have benefited from free healthcare in the past.  In fact, I had my breast reduction done through a free clinic, and it didn't cost me a thing.

Right now, there are several bloggers doing giveaways of Walgreen's gift cards.  If you enter and win one, you could use it to try out some of the Walgreens Brand Health and Wellness Products. Advertisement
