It's a Boy!


I guess I left y'all high and dry on the little old blog.

Meet Charlie! This was back in July so things have obviously changed. We have another 3d/4d scheduled on October 4.

We have also been blogging at http://theclatybaby.blogspot.com/ instead of here... so catch us there for the time being. We didn't want to bore you with the baby stuff.

Cottonelle Clean Care Routine


As I have mentioned before I'm a member of the review website Crowdtap. I love Crowdtap because they allow you to earn points to trade in for donations to organizations to the ASPCA just by participating in quick hits and random review parties. I recently participated in the  Cottonelle Clean Crew and received this awesome Cottonelle Clean Care party kit that included:

  • One 18pk Cottonelle Clean Care Toilet Paper
  • Two 4pks of Cottonelle Clean Care Toilet Paper
  • Three tubs of Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Wipes
I gave the two 4pks and two of the Flushable Wipes tubs to friends to try out. Even though I love to save money and stay on budget I refuse to buy the cheapest toilet paper on the shelf. Cottonelle has always helped to keep me on budget because the toilet paper is quality, soft and affordable (plus there are always coupons in the paper). I loved adding the flushable wipes into the routine, because it great to feel extra clean after using the restroom.
My friends enjoyed the product, as well, but the men in their lives couldn't tell a difference between the old stuff and the Cottonelle. Men are weird. How can you not tell the difference between sand paper and soft paper?

*If it wasn't obvious earlier, I was sent all this stuff from crowdtap to review for free. All these opinions are my own and I love Cottonelle.
