Scentsy Plug-in & Scent Bar Giveaway

Enter this giveaway to win a Scentsy Plug-in Warmer plus a Scent Bar. Each of your choice! If you've never heard of Scentsy, it's a company that sells scented wax that melts with the heat of a light bulb instead of a flame. Very nice for families with small kids! I had a sample of Scentsy that was about the size of a nickel and it was able to fill the house with a wonderful scent (NOT overpowering). There are a few things you must do to win (mostly "liking" pages on facebook and following on twitter) but it seems like there are very few entries so far!

Welcome to my new blog!  This is technically my 3rd blogging adventure.  The 1st one began in 2001 on a site called LiveJournal.  I was 19 and wrote all about my personal and social life.  I kept that blog going for about 8 years until I joined MySpace.  I blogged here and there on MySpace but not as frequently.  Then, of course, I joined Facebook and all blogging went out the window.  SO, I thought it was time to start again.  But this time, with a new purpose.  Getting deals and going places.
I am a mom that LOVES a good deal.  What I love even more than getting a good deal is sharing it with others.
I'll also be posting information about events in the North Florida area since this is where I reside.
