Review of Toryen Rag

The Toryen rag was discovered by a great house cleaning lady who had tried every cleaning rag she could get her hands on. Realizing that cleaning was a lot of work, she knew there had to be an easier way than scrubbing and wiping, then re-wiping, wiping up streaks, and polishing off water spots. Not wanting a four rag system, she searched for one rag that was no nonsense, simple to use, lightweight, easy to care for, and versatile, working every time on every surface. Once she finally landed on Toryen, she never looked back. Now, she wants to help others be great cleaners as well by making their job quicker, easier, and more enjoyable, whether they are cleaning their own home or doing it professionally. She thinks Toryen is the most straightforward, effective cleaning method available and is the only rag you'll ever need.

Toryen is so effective because it's made up of barely visible fibers which are tightly woven together to create many tiny ports that grab the yuck you are wiping up instead of pushing it around like other cleaning rags do. To use a Toryen rag, you simply saturate it with water, wring it out well, and wipe the surfaces you want to clean. You can use Toryen rags with water alone or your favorite cleaning solution, however, do not use Toryen rags with any type of oil or dusting agent. Toryen removes dust, dirt, soap scum, residue, grime, fingerprints, grease, smears, and stickiness without leaving behind streaks, lint, residue, scratches, dust, smears, or fingerprints. Toryen is reusable (for up to 3 years depending on usage and care), washer and dryer safe, and bleachable but should not be washed or dried with any form of fabric softener. You can also use Toryen dry to clean glass, TV screens, and electronics. Over time though, you'll develop your own favorite ways to clean using Toryen.

                                  The Toryen rag generously measures 16 x 16 inches. It has a very interesting texture, not cottony soft but not overly abrasive either. When dry the Toryen is stiff but after it has been saturated with water it is very supple and easy to use manipulate to clean any kind of surface. It's thicker than a paper towel but thinner than a cloth rag but it's very durably made and can withstand scrubbing, tugging, washing, drying, etc.    

I first used my Toryen rag to clean my shower. After my boyfriend and I have showered at the end of the day, one of my dogs likes to  sneak inside and lick up all the excess water left behind on the floor, leaving behind smudges and paw prints. 

I sprayed my usual shower cleaner on the surface of my shower (Comet All Purpose Spray Cleaner with Bleach) and let it sit for 5-6 minutes. After I had saturated my Toryen with water and wrung it out well, I used it to wipe my shower and with little effort on my part the dirt and grime came up super easy, leaving my shower looking so much better. I did the same thing to the shower in my second bathroom with the same impressive results. 

 My boyfriend also cannot seem to wash his hands without getting water all over the bathroom counter so for this reason I like to keep a Toryen rag handy nearby. The Toryen cleans up these water spots completely without leaving behind any streaks on my counter. 

To clean my Toryen rag, I just threw it into the washer and subsequently the dryer with my regular laundry and it came out feeling just as durable as it did when I first used it. There was a little staining on it but it can be bleached to improve the appearance. I am so impressed with my new Toryen rag and I'm happy with the results every time I use it and you definitely will be too. It truly is the only rag you'll ever need and you can purchase your very own Toryen rag here:

Why Switch to Dealspotr

I love shopping online. Sometimes I'd much rather shop online than at the actual store, not because I'm too lazy to actually go to the store but because when you shop online there are coupon codes available through deal sites that you can apply to your online order to save you additional money, money that you might not have been able to save at the actual store. Many times your order will even ship free so why not avoid the traffic and hassle altogether and just shop online at home where you're most comfortable anyway. That's the way I see it anyway. 

For years, my favorite deal site for finding coupons that could be applied to online orders was RetailMeNot. At first there were plenty of coupons available to my favorite stores and I saved money almost every time I shopped online thanks to RetailMeNot. Eventually, RetailMeNot became harder and harder to use because every coupon I found was expired, yet it was still listed on the site as a working coupon. And I don't me expired by a few days or even a few weeks, I mean expired months earlier. As frustrating as this was, I would still check RetailMeNot before completing online purchases because I had yet to find a better deal site. 

Then one day my friend invited me to try out a new deal site called Dealspotr and I've never been back to RetailMeNot again. Dealspotr has coupon codes for practically any store out there that offers coupon codes and this includes stores in Canada, UK, Australia, etc. But why is Dealspotr so much better than other deal sites? Because Dealspotr allows people like you and me to add the deals and their exceptional reward program, where they reward points that can be redeemed for Amazon gift cards, is a great incentive to keep members coming back everyday to post deals. So Dealspotr is not only a place for online shoppers, but a place where like minded people can come and share deals they've found online. You'll never find a deal that has been expired for more than 30 days at Dealspotr. Dealspotr is such an easy site to navigate, whether you are posting a deal for the community or searching for a deal. 

You don't have to be a blogger to post deals on Dealspotr but if you are you get rewarded even more through their Pro Bloggers program. I'm so, so thrilled to have found out about Dealspotr. I'm on Dealspotr every day either posting deals or looking for deals. It's one of the first websites I visit every day. Want to see what all the fuss is about? Check out Dealspotr for yourself here:

Find AND Post Deals at Dealspotr

My friend Angie over at the Luv Saving Money blog knows that much like her I love saving money as well, so she invited me to Dealspotr. Dealspotr is very community oriented and is a place where people like you and I can not only find great deals but post great deals as well. It is their mission at Dealspotr to create the world's easiest, fastest, and most trustworthy tool for finding deals. Their goal is to list valid deals for every store, brand, and mainstream product but most importantly filter out all the stuff that doesn't work. To achieve this, Dealspotr is taking an open-source approach (think:  Wikipedia), which means couponing enthusiasts, deal finders, and anyone living a frugal lifestyle work collaboratively to curate the world's most complete and accurate database for deals. At Dealspotr, their community is their backbone and they've designed their platform and business model to incorporate their community as the centerpiece. Part of Dealspotr's mission, in addition to making deals easy, is to make sharing deals and advice more rewarding for their members, both in terms of financial rewards as well as social rewards. They've developed a sophisticated system that measures how each community member performs in terms of saving shoppers money and in turn they get rewarded through e-gift cards commensurate with their success. They also emphasize social connectivity on Dealspotr, offering a variety of ways for their members to connect with each other, keep up-to-date with their friends and followers, and gain recognition and visibility for being a great contributor.

Of course I love finding great deals on Dealspotr but I love posting deals as well (which is super easy), which earns me Amazon gift cards. Since joining Dealspotr in February (a little only 2 months ago) I've already earned $45 in Amazon gift cards, which is perfect because I do a lot of shopping on Amazon. In case you're wondering where I find the deals that I post on Dealspotr, well I find them via various social media outlets such as Twitter and Instagram and in my email, even in my spam box. If the deal I'm posting has already been posted by another member, it tells me so, which means at Dealspotr you won't find duplicate deals for the same store or product. Unlike many similar sites, at Dealspotr you also won't find a bunch of expired deals cluttering up the site either. There are so many ways to earn points at Dealspotr that you're just going to have to join (it's free by the way) to find out for yourself.

Wild Calling Canned Dog Food Review

Disclosure: I received the below product from for free in exchange for an honest review. No other compensation was received. All opinions expressed are my own.

Wild Calling all started when Tim Petersen and his two sons wanted to feed their own pets something decent, not the typical pet food with added fillers and emulsifiers that could actually compromise the health of pets. Wild Calling products not only contain rich meat content but also fruits and vegetables, Omega 3 & 6, and Vitamins C & E. Wild Calling products are real, honest, and true. 

My two Pitbulls, Tyson and Crook, recently got to try some Wild Calling canned dog food. Wild Calling Shepherd's Choice is 96% lamb. It's grain-free and gluten-free. It contains nothing artificial. It has added vitamins and minerals dogs need such as zinc, copper, and iron. It's also made in the USA. This canned dog food is soft and mushy in consistency. It only has a very light aroma. It easily spoons out of the can. It's easy for my dogs to eat and they seem digest it well with no adverse reactions. Tyson loves it and wolfs it down, however, Crook doesn't seem to like it very well and after a small bite or two he's had enough, which is just fine by Tyson because that means more for him. I'm just glad that at least one of them like this dog food because I'm very happy with the ingredients. I've come to realize that my pets are just like my kids. They have different preferences when it comes to food and there's nothing wrong with that.

Review of Sigel of Germany CONCEPTUM Notebooks

Being the number one e-tailer of business and office supplies, carries a wide range of notebooks but the CONCEPTUM Notebooks created exclusively by Sigel of Germany, which is a parent company of Bindertek, are by far the most exceptional I've had the pleasure of using.

In addition to its contemporary yet sturdy design, the Sigel Softcover Lined Notebook is equipped with a lot of terrific, sensible features. The soft cover is thick and well made but is flexible. It has an elastic closure and a pen loop. There is a customizable table of contents. There is an integrated filling pocket for business cards and loose leaf papers, as well as an archive pocket with two card slots. There is also a two ribbon page marker (one black and one white). One of my favorite features is that the 194 pages feature consecutive page numbering. In addition, the last 20 sheets are perforated. The pages are lined, cream colored, and thick. In addition, the pages are acid-free, chlorine-free, and wood-free. I was very pleased with this professional looking notebook. I appreciate all the included extras to help keep me more organized. This notebook could be used for so many different things such as taking notes, journaling, writing poetry/stories, etc. My son is a budding songwriter and this will be a nice notebook to help him keep track of his favorite songs.

The Sigel Hardcover Graph Notebook is an exceptional notebook as well. The hard cover is very thick and durable. It features many of the same extras as the Sigel Softcover Lined Notebook, including the pen loop, customizable table of contents, filling pocket, archive pocket with card slots, two ribbon page marker, numbered pages, and perforated sheets. However, the Sigel Hardcover Graph Notebook features a magnetic closure, which holds well, and instead of lined paper it has graph paper. The paper is also cream colored and thick in addition to being acid-free, chlorine-free, and wood-free. I was very pleased with the professional design of this notebook. Graph paper has many different uses, including plotting mathematical functions or experimental data and is commonly found in mathematics and engineering education settings. My son will be starting his first year of geometry next year and this will be the perfect notebook to help him get started and stay organized.

Overall, I was very pleased with both of these CONCEPTUM Notebooks. They are both stylish, uniquely designed with meticulous attention to detail, and made with quality materials.

You can purchase these Sigel products, as well as other Sigel and Bindertek products from In addition to being the number one e-tailer of business and office supplies, also carries an assortment of cleaning supplies, medical supplies, office furniture and everything in between.

Fuzzeez Review

Fuzzeez are the magical, huggable, lovable, and totally fuzzable friends you make yourself. There's no sewing involved. You just simply start with your favorite form (puppy, kitty, or teddy), add eyes and a nose and stuff with magical transforming fluff, spray and stuff until it's filled just enough, and wash and tumble dry.  You can follow the pattern or change it up to make your Fuzzeez truly unique. It says on the website that each Fuzzeez kit contains enough fluff and accessories to make two Fuzzeez buddies, however, this wasn't the case and the kit I received only contained enough material to make one buddy. 

My 11-year-old niece and I made a Fuzzeez Puppy outside on the picnic table on Easter Sunday as it was a pretty day outside. If making your buddy inside, I'd definitely be sure to place a towel underneath the work area as things can get a little wet when spraying the fuzz. We had a lot of fun making this together. The directions were relatively easy to follow. It took us about 30 minutes to get the Fuzzez ready enough for the washer and dryer. When all done, I think the Fuzzeez Puppy only turned out okay. Some parts of it turned out better than other parts but it is staying intact nonetheless. I don't know if that would be the case though if my niece would actually try to play with or cuddle with it but she can definitely display it and show it off to friends and family. Either way, it's still super cute and it was a fun project to do with my niece and that's what really matters....creating memories.
