My Thrifty Momma Ramblings Blog is Home!

I finally finished moving to WordPress late last night. I still had lots of tweaks to do to the theme before I posted this update. I apologize for not being around much this past week, but between moving the blog and school, I was overwhelmed. I still have a few minor tweaks I want to make to the blog, but this is pretty much it for now. The tweaks now might be some color changes to a few fonts. Later I do plan to add a header and background, but I am burnt for the moment.

What does everyone think of the new blog?

I really loved the fun and bright colors. The header and background are transparent so I need to tweak it later in photoshop. I am just not in the mood to mess with it anymore this weekend. I have a small holiday coming up so I will work on it then. I get three days off from school and looking forward to that small break.

I have a fun giveaway starting soon so keep checking back! The giveaway will give me a chance to show off the new blog.

Keep checking back for more exciting giveaways and other news. I am so excited about being on WordPress, and I have plans to make Thrifty Momma Ramblings more exciting for all my readers. I really missed posting this past week.

Don’t Miss the Big Sprint 4-Day Sale 2/5-2/8

This post brought to you by Sprint. All opinions are 100% mine.

Being back in school, I need to have a cell phone with me. My son’s school needs to be able to reach me in case of an emergency. I have to be able to access my email if a class is canceled. Since I am on a tight budget, I cannot afford to pay hundreds of dollars for a cell phone. I was thrilled when I learned Sprint has a sale going on from 2/5 until 2/8 on their online site.


Sprint is offering the Nexus S™ 4G for FREE when you open a new line of service or add to your account. A few of the great features this phone offers is built-in Google apps, integrated Google Voice™ service, 4G speed and a superfast processor. This phone would definitely come in handy at school. The faster the better for me.

Try the Inviting Scents of New Glade® Expressions™

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Triad Retail Media. All opinions are 100% mine.

I know I love coming home to a fresh smelling house. I also want my guests to feel welcome when they are in my home. I was excited to try the new Glade® Expressions™ Fragrance Mist & Oil Diffuser products.

I have tried the new Glade® Expressions™ fragrance mist and I find it so easy to use. The best part is you peel off the label which then becomes an attractive bottle that fits in with my decor. It does not scream to guests I am a fragrance can. The cans are refillable so you can change the scents out if you wish. - Glade Expressions Air Fresheners

I prefer to use oil diffusers in my bedroom so I just place it and I’m done. I have placed the new Glade® Expressions™ oil diffuser in Pineapple & Mangosteen which comes with a bamboo colored diffuser. It matches my decor perfectly. The diffuser has a no-spill design and does not need to be plugged in. It saves my outlets for items that I might need to have plugged in plus saves money on my electric bill. It easy to change by just changing out the oil bottle. The oil diffuser will last 30 days.

The available fragrances are Pineapple & Mangosteen, Cotton & Italian Mandarin (only available in Fragrance Mist form), Fuji Apple & Cardamom, and Spice Lavender & Juniper Berry.

So if you are ready to try the new Glade® Expressions™ products, then print out a $1.50 coupon which can be used at Walmart on the new Glade® Expressions™ fragrance mist to save even more money.

The best part is Glade’s® satisfaction guaranteed or your money back. Mail the original UPC and purchase receipt within 30 days (Click here to complete the form if unsatisfied). This is a great offer so you have nothing to lose by trying.

What fragrance or item will you try? I currently use the Cotton & Italian Mandarin fragrance mist in my bathroom and the Pineapple & Mangosteen oil diffuser in my bedroom.

TMR Frugal Living Tip #90

Today’s thrifty living tip is to whiten teeth with baking soda.  I know you can purchase toothpaste made with baking soda, but I don’t find they work all that well. Those whitening strips are very expensive even with coupons and sales.

I find the very best way to whiten my teeth is to use plain baking soda. I make a paste with a teaspoon of baking soda, a pinch of salt, and add a little water. Use that paste to brush your teeth. You could also just sprinkle a little on a wet toothbrush. I find the paste cleans better. I then rinse my mouth well with water. You can use a little hydrogen peroxide, but be careful to never ingest peroxide (even food grade). I would suggest if you ever want to swish with peroxide then mix it with an equal amount of water.

I only use this mixture once to twice a month. Baking soda is abrasive and will wear away the enamel if used often. My dentist reassured me it is safe to use but not daily. He recommends no more than once a week at most, but said every other week would be safer. My teeth are not overly stained so I stick to once a month.

Have you tried baking soda as a tooth whitener? If you have, then what were your results?

I am constantly looking for ways to lower my costs. With the ever increasing costs of prescription medications, I was thrilled to learn about the special discount Walgreens Prescription Savings Club is offering. This is a wonderful plan for both families and individuals. Walgreens is a great pharmacy that is open 24 hours a day with lots of locations around the United States.

There are many other benefits you will receive through the savings club other than discount prices on your prescriptions. You will receive savings on more than 8,000 brand-name and all generic medications. Discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nedbulizers, and diabetic supplies. Plus receive bonuses on any Walgreens brand products and photo services. I love to use many of the Walgreens brand products especially on their vitamins and supplements.
