I recently won this wonderful Wet Ones giveaway. I thought I kept the information about what blog I won it from, but unfortunately, I can't find the email where it's listed. So, I'm sorry for not being able to give credit to the blog that hosted this giveaway.
Anyway, I'm very glad I won these Wet Ones because our household is very germ-conscious so this is the perfect thing for us. We will definitely have many places we can use these - at home or on the go.
What have you won recently?

I decided to ring my things up at the self-checkout line, but when I checked my receipt, I was overcharged $5.96 because the register hadn't accepted my coupons and rang up double the amount of bagels. The cashier brought me to customer service and they just rounded it up and refunded me $6.00. They also gave me 4 game pieces and some coupons for extra points when I shop there again. That was very kind!

Red and Golden Delicious apples $.77/pound
Miracle Whip and Mayo. $2.99 each = $5.98
Lucerne sliced cheese $1.99
2 Red cake decorating gel $5.58(these weren't on sale, but I need them to decorate my son's birthday cake. I already have the cake and frosting, purchased on a previous shopping trip, on sale)
1 Del Monte vegetable $.49
3 Campbells cream soups $.49 each = $1.47 - $.25 coupon, doubled = $.97
6 Pringles $1.29 each = $7.74 - $1.00 coupon = $6.74
Ralphs often has buy 10, get $.50 off each item. Last week, I noticed a lady with a huge box of canned vegetables, so I decided to ask if there's a limit to how many of the 10 items you can purchase and the cashier said she didn't think so. In fact, she recently saw a lady buy 50 canned vegetables, and she received the sales deal on all 50 cans!
2 Keebler cookies $1.99 each = $3.98 - $.55 coupon = $3.43
3 Betty Crocker blueberry muffin mix $1.00
3 Renuzit $2.54
1 Oral B toothbrush $1.99 + $1.00 register reward
1 Carefree $.99 - $.50 coupon = $.49
1 Blistex Revive $1.99 + $1.99 register reward
I also had $7.00 in register rewards to use from last time. While I was shopping, I noticed a lady with her coupons in a binder, and the coupons were in baseball card plastic sleeves. I need to learn to shop like that! She asked me some questions about what our Walgreens accepted, she's from out of town, and I knew some answers, but not all. So, when I checked out, I asked if I could break up my purchases, in the future, into multiple transactions so I could use the register rewards to pay for the next purchase, and the cashier said yes! In fact, she showed me how to do it this time. I paid for everything other than the muffin mixes in the first transaction, then used the $1.00 register reward I earned to pay for the muffin mixes, thus paying $0.00 for that transaction! I'm going to have to do this again in the future!
2 Smuckers jelly $5.00 - $1.00 coupon = $4.00 + $3.00 extra bucks
1 Softsoap $.99
I also had $4.00 in extra bucks to use from last time. Next time, I'll have to ask them if I can break up my transactions, like I can at Walgreens.

I won these earrings in a giveaway last Wednesday from Artisan Crafted blog, and I already received the earrings yesterday! They came packaged very nicely in a small decorative paper bag, and enclosed in bubble wrap and tissue paper, inside a small plastic bag. My daughter thinks they are so beautiful and can't wait to wear them to church!
The earrings were made by Dianes Dangles. She makes wonderful hand crafted jewelry and even has a matching necklace available that goes with these earrings. You can find that necklace here. You can also see all of the other wonderful hand crafted jewelry she sells at Dianes Dangles on Artfire.
I am having so much fun winning these giveaways! It's a great way to try out products first to see if you like them, before making a purchase.

6 Lunchables $.99 each = $5.94
I offered for the people behind me to go ahead, but they declined. I felt bad because I needed a rain check and the cashier had to go somewhere else to get one, then she didn't have a pen, then she left my ad and had to go back and get it!

As a Purex Insider, I was sent two Renuzit Fresh Accents Holiday to try. I was sent Festive Snow and Winter Berry. These products have very nice two-sided holiday designs that fit in very well with your home decor. They provide 30 days of continuous fragrance and are great at eliminating unwanted odors. They don't need plugs, batteries or flames.
After smelling the scratch and sniff stickers on the packages, I decided to try winter berry first. It is very easy to use. You just open the package, peel off the foil,place the scented pack into the decorative holder, and place it where you want. It made our house smell very pleasant in just a short amount of time, and it didn't bother my son's allergies. In fact, the my son said the trick or treaters that came to our door on Halloween, commented on how nice our house smelled!
I have been given 3 coupons for a free holiday air freshener to give away to 3 of you. All you have to do is fill out the Rafflecopter form below, fill out one option or as many as you want. The giveaway ends at 12:01 p.m. eastern time on 11/10/11.

At Stater Bros., I spent $21.63 and saved $16.00, which is 43%. Here's what I bought:
