This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

I recently had the opportunity to take part in a Febreze Noseblind Movie Night Event in which I invited three of my besties over for a movie night. We ended up watching Bridesmaids (this is at least the 4th time we’ve watched this movie together) and eating a ton of popcorn.

Before we started the movie, we were supplied with a link to take a quick survey, which was the noseblind test. After the surveys were completed, I made the popcorn and then we all had to complete another quick survey.  After the movie, popcorn and about a million laughs, it was time for the final survey of the night.

I think we all thought that the noseblind test was pretty interesting. We all agreed that when that when the girls arrived, they could smell the meatballs I had made for our family dinner that night, but after I popped the  popcorn, that smell completely took over. By the end of the night, all we could smell were the Febreze products that I had set up in the house (mainly the plugin). Continue reading »

I am a regular at my local Stop & Shop grocery store.  I have been going there for so long that I have the entire store mapped out in my head & make my shopping list by aisle, which allows me to blow in and out of the store in near record time.  HA!

But get this:  Now, when I don’t have the time to actually spend time in the store to do my shopping, I can do my shopping online and my groceries will be ready for me to pick up when I get to the store (after I select the pick up date & time of course).  Talk about a huge time saver.

Here’s how it all works:

Online shopping for Stop & Shop fulfilled by Peapod:

  • Shop online — browse or search the aisles to add items to your cart. Enter your Stop & Shop Card to shop from a list of items you’ve previously bought in the store.
  • Choose a location & pick-up time from the one-hour window that best fits your schedule. Submit and pay for your order.
  • Pick-up your groceries at the Pick-up Point location during the time slot you selected. An associate will greet you and have your groceries loaded into your car, all within 5 minutes.
  • Plus, you still get weekly specials, real deals, and earn A+ School Rewards and Gas Reward points. Use manufacturer coupons for additional savings!

I got a chance to try out Peapod’s new pick up service recently at the Stop & Shop in Quincy along with a few other local bloggers, so I can tell you based on my experience – it was pretty awesome to be able to have my items ready and waiting for me.  I sat down a few days before I wanted to pickup my groceries to place my order on Peapod.com and once all my items were added to my cart, I went through the checkout process, selected my date & time that I wanted to pick up and boom – I was done.

I think what I love the most about the pickup service is that I can shop for my groceries whenever and where ever I want.  All I need is internet access and I can sign into the site & place my order.  I am all for anything that makes my life a little easier! Continue reading »
