Amazon/Shakespeare deal
These rods are $9.99 and Pure Fishing has a rebate to get $10 back when you spend $30. This is another great way to use up those Swagbucks Amazon gcs! There are some others styles (and some for Father's Day) that quailify for the rebate if you click around. Don't forget free shipping on most orders over $25! Get Dad a late gift and child gets a free rod!
This is what my son wanted for his birthday so I was so excited to stumble across this deal! Just a note- shipping is taking a bit longer on these.

Free kid's toothbrush

Sign up at Colgate to earn points for developing a good bedtime routine. You simply log each child's progress for each day they wash their hands, brush their teeth and read a book (or have someone read to them). When their log is filled, Colgate will send each child in your family (up to 10 children per email address) a free toothbrush!

This is a great way to teach healthy bedtime habits that will follow them throughout their life. I also hope the parents to do the program with the child/ren to encourage them to do the same.

Everyone knows the importance of washing hands and brushing teeth but reading is often over looked. Reading is very important in our household. In fact, my son has quite an extensive library of books to read thanks to numerous yard sale, Goodwill & McKay's trips! Some books he loves are Good Night Moon (and the video on YouTube is cute too) , Boom Chicka Rock, and currently The Lorax. The Lorax is great since Earth Day is coming up on April 22. We bought the book and the plush Lorax from Khol's for $5 each on Saturday.
We love Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, as well. My son gets a free book every month until he turns 5. Check to see if it is offered in your area.

What are your favorite bedtime routines or your child's favorite bedtime story?

Amazon/Fisher Price deal

Are you planning on using some of those Amazon gift cards you get from Swagbucks this month?

Until April 30, you can get this free Fisher-Price TRIO building set with any purchase of the select toys listed. Also, you can get free Super Saver Shipping on orders over $25.

The lowest priced eligible toy I found is the Brilliant Basics Baby's First Blocks for $8.54. They also have a couple other TRIO toys listed you could purchase to go along with the free one!

Also, check out the Toys Savings Event for other savings to get your total up enough to qualify for free shipping.

Free photo book from Hot Prints

Take a look at what come in the mail today. My son's free photo book! He was very excited to see the pictures from our trip to the zoo last year in his very own book. What could be better than a free book of our pictures? How about a free one every month!

You need to sign up at either Hot Prints or you can upload your pictures from your Facebook account and use their application. There are no shipping charges and they don't even ask for your credit card info! The book looks like a magazine and has a insert of ads from the sponsors that you can just pull out. I recommend saving as you add pictures to your book. The original one I made had fun facts about every animal and took me about 4 hours to make. Of course, I hadn't been saving it and lost all my progress!

This month I will be doing our pictures from the aquarium. Please feel free to share any ideas you have for future books with us!

Quick! Write reviews and earn credit!

EXPIRED ...but feel free to check out the store and the great products they offer!

I have participated in a few promotions where you write reviews on products and get a free gift card, but at Franklin Goose you get a store credit of $5 for EVERY review you write. They sell organic toys, clothing and more for kids. (If you have never considered cloth diapers, please check out that section, you may be surprised!) And there is no limit on the amount of reviews you write! WOW! This is only good until the 31st so get to writing!
Here is their blog that will answer many questions. They have been overwhelmed because of the amount of people wanting to take advantage of this offer. So please, do this poor company a favor and decide to "bank" your credits for awhile so they can get caught up. Your order may not be in stock anyways until things settle down!
You should write something more than, "I like this product." or it will get removed and you won't be credited. They only want legitimate reviews on products you have used. You need to register first. Your reviews will be prosessed before your credit will show, so give it some time. Remeber, you only have a few days left to act on this awesome deal!
We used cloth diapers and love the natural toys so this will be great to use for holiday gifts this year for my son, nephew and niece!

Free Samples

Hey, who says nothing's free? Not me! I like to keep small sized lotions & shampoos on hand for travel or just to hold us over until the next awesome sale. They are also great to throw in a basket for a baby shower gift (for the baby or mom-to-be!). My mom also loves getting a "sample" basket for holidays full of goodies that didn't cost me an arm and a leg! You could also do a "sample swap" with friends for example your diaper samples for their pad samples.

The free samples I will be posting here will not require you to buy anything but may require a quick registration. If you aren't a member of Facebook, I highly recommend it. There are often samples that are only available to Facebook fans. I also suggest starting a new email account exclusively for junk mail. I will try my best to only include reputable sites as well. Offers usually limit 1 per household.

Walmart always has free samples listed so bookmark it and check back weekly!
Right now they have listed- Tide plus Febreeze, Rachael Ray dog food, Crest 3D white strips & Benefiber Orange.

Baby Barn is offering a 2.5 oz bottle (each) of baby body and hair wash and baby lotion. The scents listed of the wash are Fragrance Free, Lavender Avocado and Honeysuckle Orange. (Note- you have to click the confirmation link in the email they send before they ship. The other samples listed in the email require you to complete sponsor offers.)

L'Oreal Paris has samples listed on their site for EverStrong for beautifully strong hair and EverPure for color-treated hair, as well as coupons for some of their other products.

Pureology- Choose between- SuperSmooth Relaxing Serum - Light serum to smooth out stubborn frizz or SuperSmooth Smoothing Cream - Styler for smooth red carpet curls.
