Tuesday Talk – October 21, 2014

Lately I’ve noticed that many so-called Mom Bloggers are switching over their blogs to Food Blogs.  Those bloggers can do whatever they want to do; that is not a concern to me.  It is; however, difficult to keep track of who is who and what they are doing.

Personally, I have several interests so I can understand writing about the various topics that are of interest to me.  What I mentioned above goes beyond this. It would be like me all of a sudden to only write about clay.  Shocking isn’t it?  Worse yet food is where it’s at because pictures of yummy food (with/without recipes) gets attention, gets shared, gets comments, etc.

The other type of blog that some are switching to is a Travel Blog.  Why?  Same reason … great pictures get attention!

As a blog follower, have you been noticing this trend?  What do you think about it?  Let me know; leave a comment below.

NEW @Crest Sensi-Relief Whitening Plus @ScopeMouthwash Toothpaste and @OralB Toothbrushes #PGMom

Let’s discover NEW Crest Sensi-Relief Whitening Plus Scope Toothpaste and OralB Toothbrushes …

There’s no place for sensitivity!

Did you know that 65% of Canadians experience tooth sensitivity? Often triggered by cold foods and beverages and sometimes cold temperatures, sensitive teeth can be a painful distraction to simple pleasures, and who wants to miss out on family ice cream night!? Further, living with sensitive teeth can get in the way of proper oral hygiene – yuck!

Luckily, we have a solution for you! Crest and Oral-B have come out with a new line of oral care products designed to prevent and eliminate tooth pain caused by sensitivity – Crest Sensi-Relief Toothpaste and the Oral-B Crest Sensi-Soft Toothbrush.

Want to hear some tooth sensitivity facts that will shock you? Take a look!

  • As mentioned above, more than 65% of Canadians (vs 50% of Americans) experience tooth sensitivity
  • 19% of sensitivity sufferers admit they have changed their behaviours as a result of tooth sensitivity
  • 47% of people with sensitive teeth suffer from pain at least once a day
  • Sufferers implement many tactics to deal with sensitive teeth such as:
    • Avoidance – 61% of sufferers avoid food, drinks and certain conditions
    • Seek treatment – 92% will visit the doctor, use special toothpaste or do fluoride treatments
    • Adopt compensating behaviours – 76% will brush their teeth delicately, chew food differently or drink fluids through a straw

If you can identify with any of these statistics you will be thrilled to learn how Crest Sensi-Relief Toothpaste can help.  Clinically proven sensitivity relief with the great taste of Scope, Crest Sensi-Relief builds against sensitive tooth protection to make your days easier.

I’m excited to try Crest Sensi-Relief Toothpaste along with an Oral-B Crest Sensi-Soft Toothbrush to test.  I do suffer from sensitivity and often find it painful to enjoy my favourite treats like coffee, and ice cream … and that’s just a sin!

I’ll report back to you letting you know how it goes!

In the meantime, don’t forget to use those printable PG coupons!!

The Baby Event is Back! #PampersParty #PGMom

When it comes to shopping, you are a savvy mom looking for a store that has everything you need for baby, and the whole family. At participating retailers below, you can shop for quality food, baby necessities and at some locations, even clothes for the entire family! By choosing a retailer that offers everything in one place, you save time and have more time for the little ones.

Tips for making your shopping trips more efficient: 
Can grocery shopping feel daunting? Check out these tips and tricks that can help you get the most out of your trips to the store.
1. Always go with a list.
Do you often find yourself aimlessly wandering around the grocery store, forgetting what you’re missing at home? By making a to-buy list you can target exactly what you need, allowing you to get in and get out. And, you can save money by only purchasing necessities!
2. Navigate the store like a pro
If you visit the same store each week, organize your list by aisles to save you from backtracking.
3. Schedule a shopping day
Pick one day a week and designate as your “shopping day”. This way everyone in the family knows to request the items they need before then, which will help you avoid multiple trips to the store.
4. Pick a store that has everything you need
Don’t waste time travelling, going from store to store. Instead, visit a store that meets all your needs – from food, to clothing to baby necessities like Pampers.
5. Look for specials & shopping events that’ll help you save
Visit Loblaws, Atlantic Superstore, Extra Foods, Your Independent Grocer, Zehrs Markets, Valu-mart or Real Canadian Superstore from October 10-23 for the baby event. The event includes exciting offers on all things baby to make shop

To help make shopping even more convenient, these participating retailers below are bringing back the baby event from October 10-23, offering promotions on all your baby needs, like Pampers.

Participating retailers include: Loblaws, Atlantic Superstore, Extra Foods, Your Independent Grocer, Zehrs Markets, Valu-mart and Real Canadian Superstore

Celebrate at the #PampersParty

PampersParty Graphic v4

I’m also excited to announce that PG will be hosting a Twitter party tomorrow (Thursday, October 16) from 8 p.m. – 9 p.m. Hosted by Lena and moderated by Alyssa, Nicole & Sheri Mcdonald, the #PampersParty will highlight how to maximize time with loved ones by being a smart mommy shopper AND will include fabulous prizes perfect for little ones. We hope to see you there!

RSVP here!

By the way, here are my great tips you can use:

- make a shopping list and stick to it; it will keep you from getting distracted and purchasing what you don’t need

- try to schedule your errands into one trip but arrange them according to the area you’ll be in; that’ll save time and money … especially gas!

- pick stores that carry everything; one stop shopping has really come a long way and you’ll find yourself saving precious time (who can put a price on that?)

- try to use shopping apps that will save you time and money … they usually show what’s on sale

- maximize savings by using coupons on items you need to purchase

See How @Swiffer Redefines #ManClean #PGMom

Society is changing!  Modern guys are proud of their Man Clean skills, keeping their floors so shiny that they can trim their beards in the reflection. And yet, men often have a bad reputation for cutting corners when completing household chores.

I know you’re probably thinking, what is Man Clean? According to www.urbandictionary.com Man Clean is defined as attempting in vain to remove dirt, i.e. sweeping breadcrumbs under the rug or spraying Febreze over vents.

We thought this definition was outdated and so we asked Canadians about their cleaning habits and found overwhelmingly, 86% of guys are contributing to household cleaning. To add, they own up to their great cleaning swagger! Over 1 in 3 (34%) Canadian males rate themselves as “great” at household cleaning.

Amir tests out the Swiffer WetJet - Copy

Amir Johnson of the Toronto Raptors has partnered with Swiffer to change that definition, encouraging men to boast about their cleaning swagger.

The new definition of Man Clean

Man clean should be about empowering guys to boast about their cleaning swagger, using the best tools, like Swiffer, to get the job done.

The Man Clean Boast 

Join the Man Clean Movement to spread the word that men are master cleaners. Visit www.showyourclean.ca  to get your man to boast about his Man Clean!

Is your man a basketball fan?

At www.showyourclean.ca your man can also enter for a chance to win a boast-worthy prize – a trip to Toronto with nine friends to play a private basketball game at the Air Canada Center! Click here to enter and read the rules.
