The Motherloot Blog: Product Reviews

Wow, I can’t believe we had this many entries, but I just want to thank each of you for taking the time to leave a comment and let me know what you would like to see covered here. I pulled one of the hot topics out of the hat and covered a holiday gift guide for men (all gifts under $20) that was requested by you. I will continue working through this extensive list and I hope you will continue visiting our site!

I want to congratulate commenter #812, Pam B., on winning this gift card. She was chosen at random and had this idea for our site:

“What a blessing a $50 Walmart card would be for holiday shopping! I would love to read more information about organizing my coupons. I have been couponing and refunding for over 30 years, but no matter what I have tried, the paper overwhelms me! There are so many coupons to sort through and file. So far, the best way for me has been to file my coupons in a recipe box divided by tabs (example: Paper Products) then into mini categories (example: Toilet Tissue/Kleenex, Paper Towels/Napkins, Plates/Cups, Wrap/Bags). But I am looking for a better way. I need to save every penny I can, but sometimes I don’t even feel like bothering with my coupons anymore. They really do save me a lot of money, but there has to be a better, easier way!”

We look forward to answering these and many more questions this year. Thank you all for participating and check back each and every Tuesday for fun giveaways!

Sorry- this giveaway has ended!

Walmart wants our readers to have the best holiday season with the lowest prices so they are offering to our readers (in conjunction with my job as an Eleven Mom) the opportunity to win a $50 gift card that will be put towards your holiday shopping/grocery shopping this year.

Just think what you could do with $50 to put towards your holiday shopping? I can already picture myself loading up on goodies for all my cookie trays this year. Unfortunately, I can’t win, but you can!

Please leave a comment by Tuesday (11/18) at 8PM with one topic you would like to see covered on our site/blog. Only entries that follow the guidelines will be entered and I thank you for giving me some content to cover in the new year! Good luck to each of you and may your holiday season be truly blessed!

    The only thing I can think of is perhaps things to do with antsy toddlers/preschool age children. Especially with the upcoming cold season.

    My daughter loves to be outside but cannot stand the wind, and isnt fond of the cold lol. So we have issues with what to do being stuck inside all the time, she gets bored of the same things and has a tendency to get cranky.

    I would love to see some topics covered about parents with children with special needs. I am a mom to a daughter with complex heart defects (5 years old) and a preemie (now 3 years old.) We spend a lot of time, especially in the early years, juggling doctor appointments, meds, dietary restrictions, weight gain problems, etc. I know there are many more moms out there like me who could use the encouragement. I would love to contribute since I’m a mom who’s “been there, done that” and your blog reaches far more people than mine does. Anyways, just a thought. =)

    And I would love to win a Walmart giftcard! =)
