Bento Giveaway from + Lots of Facebook freebies!

I'm all about free stuff. In this economy, every little bit helps. As much as I would love to get into couponing (though not extreme couponing! I'm not that crazy!), I don't have the time between work, school, and mommyhood. So when I see freebies pop up on my Facebook news feed, I get very excited! Right now, Pantene, Aussie, and Herbal Essences are all giving away coupons for free full-sized products from their respective Facebook pages! Simply "Like" each page and fill out a simple form to request your coupons. It's that easy!

Another way to save a little money and have fun in the process is by entering online giveaways! I've posted several bento-related giveaways here before, and while I've yet to win, I keep hoping that someone I know will benefit from my posts!, a very reasonably-priced bento product website, is hosting a giveaway!
 Simply sign up for a free account and leave a comment on this page to enter. Be sure to include your favorite item that's for sale on the site! Mine is above. (Yes, I know it looks conspicuously like the bento box I already have... but I think she needs a sister!) I'm hoping to start getting back into the swing of bento-ing once Fall semester rolls around. I could use some new gear!

Have fun finding those freebies! You never know where they might turn up!

Charlie Banana Cloth Diaper Giveaway!

EcoBabyBuys has partnered up with Charlie Banana to giveaway two sets of super cute cloth diapers! I don't CD (as it's commonly called), mostly because I was completely intimidated by the idea. Wyatt will be out of diapers soon enough, so maybe for baby number two? I love the concept and its positive impact on the earth!

Go here to enter the giveaway. It closes June 8th!

Another Bento Giveaway!

We're almost completely settled into our new place... finally! My Maymester class started last week, and it's so much fun! I'm taking Japanese Literature and having a blast learning about various aspects of Japanese culture along the way. The instructor taught at an American high school in Japan in the 1970s and visits the country regularly. And our final? A traditional Japanese dinner. Pretty fantastic!
Speaking of things Japanese, the lovely lady over at Sonoma Bento is having a bento giveaway! She's giving away an awesome starter kit that's perfect for those who want to make bento, but don't know where to start!

Recycle your flip-flops and help build a playground.

Contrary to popular belief, I have not forgotten that I have a blog. =) Life is extremely hectic right now - it's finals time at school AND we're moving this weekend! I'll be around more once summer classes start and my schedule isn't quite so frenzied.

I came across this today and HAD to share it!

Old Navy is asking for people to donate their old flip-flops that they don't wear anymore - so that they can be used to build playgrounds! How amazing is that?! The flip-flops can be any size and any kind, not just Old Navy brand. Donations are taken in store until May 21st. The Facebook event is here - click "I'm Attending" so that you won't forget to donate!
