Can I give up Facebook for 40 days?

I Love facebook. It's where I go when I want to find out the latest deals, what's happening with my friends and family or just want to spend a few minutes playing a game.

The problem is a few minutes on facebook has a tendency to turn into an hour or so. I used to think the facebook games were a time drain but in reality it is all of facebook. While yes it might make things easier, in reality all the information I get from facebook can be found elsewhere. I can email my friends for life updates, I can read my google reader for the best internet deals and I can find games to play anywhere on the internet.

In honor of my "resolution" to declutter and simplify our lives this year I want to do a facebook fast. I am not Catholic but the timing and time span just seemed to work and inspire me. So in a quest to remember what exactly I did with all my free time before facebook and maybe even be productive for a while I'm logging off of our big blue friend.

I can't get rid of all my online conveniences, I can't imagine what my email would look like if I didn't check that, but hopefully this little (yet hard) change will help me spend more time on the things I find important in life and the world around me.

Soft Scrub Giveaway!

As a Soft Scrub Captain I get the opportunity on occasion to try out their new products. Just last week I received a bottle of their newest Total (bath and kitchen) and a few coupons to try out.

I’ve used the Total line before in the bathroom and kitchen lines, but this new Total product is multi-purpose. One bottle, every room, it will definitely make cleaning quicker.

There are a couple of things I really like about the Total line in general one of them being that you can use bottle upside down. Who hasn’t been trying to spray a hard to reach area only to have a bottle leak on you or quit working all together? It’s frustrating, especially if you’re working with harsh chemicals. No one wants to wear toilet cleaner on their hands or clothes. The Total bottle line works right side or upside down making it pretty convenient. You can also adjust the spray to be a sprits or foam which comes in for different areas of your home. I’m a foam girl in areas like my kitchen where I want to hit a stain on the stove and not nearby food or utensils. Then in the bathroom I’m a sprits cleaner b/c I like to make sure I’ve hit as much as possible.

You can also find out more about the Total line and the new all purpsose cleaner on their facebook page.

If you haven’t already had the chance to try the newest Total all purpose cleaning product I’m going to give you the chance right now. Take a few seconds and use the ENTER HERE form below to enter for a chance to win your own full size bottle. I’ll draw a winner next Monday and you can enter one time. Good Luck!

I try out quite a few products and only talk about the ones I really enjoy using so you’ll know when you read a review here it’s an honest opinion.
