Bounce It Off Millions

This looks pretty cool! Bounce has created a really interesting experience on Facebook. Are you undecided on something? Can't decide between 2 places of where to go for vacation? Having trouble on deciding something that has been nagging you forever? Then submit your question to Bounce Facebook and click on the Bounce it Off Millions link. Your question will turn into a poll where millions will be able to give you their opinion. This could possibly help you decide!

Not only that but Bounce will choose 4 of the most interesting polls to be featured in a Facebook ad which will end up giving you even more opinions from various people.

There is also a contest on the page where you can win 2 Bounce Dryer Bars (one for you to keep and one for you to give to a friend!).

***I participated in this campaign as a member of One2One Network and am eligible for a prize drawing. All opinions stated in the post are my own. ***

Free 8x10 Collage Print at Walgreens

Use code PRINTONE to get a free 8x10 collage print. Pick up at store and it will be completely free (not sure of shipping charges if you select mail order). These are great for presents for the grandparents. I do these everytime they are free and hold them back for Christmas. Go to and make sure you select 8x10 collage and use code PRINTONE at checkout. Expires on Saturday.

Free $10 Credit!! Rue La La

Go here using this link and get a $10 credit added to your account when you sign up. Of course it is completely free to sign up!

With this credit you could potentially score something for free or very close. I see some Crocs for $19.90 and with the credit they would only be $9.90.

I also see a Cuisinart 5pc Pro Prep Cutlery Set for only $15.90 so after your credit it would only be $5.90.

Ebates has online rebates and coupons for over 1,200 stores! This is one of those stores that you go through their link to whatever shopping site you choose and then you get cash back on your purchase. They also have coupon codes available on their site to help you spend less. I have been using them a lot since I signed up and have already had 2 checks sent to me. They also offer specials where they double the cash back for certain stores.

They are free to join and they generally have a sign up bonus of $5 to $10 when you sign up. Go here for details.

If Only Things Would Have Been Different....

Well, today I received in the mail an invitation to take some honor classes at my school. I scored high enough on my placement test that I have been chosen to take these classes.

Of course they are not offered at the 2 campuses nearest me. :( With my lousy vehicle and extremely limited hours in which my son will be in school (3 hours a day) this will not work. But nonetheless I am extremely proud of myself.

I grew up with a mother who constantly told me I would never amount to anything and no matter how many times I showed her awards I had won at school or my report cards (only times I got bad grades was for gym class everything else A and B's) she just said "so?". I really feel if I would have had a slightly normal family my life would have been way different than the many struggles I have endured in my years. This letter makes me both happy and sad. I see what could have been if only I had a caring family and not the family from hell.

So if anyone out there is reading this and you too have had a very unloving childhood just remember you are not alone. There are others like you out there. Just try to keep your chin up. I know it is hard but you have to. Even if it is just to spite them. :)
