Bzz: OFF! PowerPad Lamp & Clip-On + COUPONS

Do you know what a BZZAgent is? It's a person who tries out products and services for FREE and then spreads the word about it. You don't receive money for it, however, sometimes you get to keep a really cool product. I'm a BZZAgent and I enjoy it so much. Today I'm going to tell you about a great must-have for summer and giveaway some coupons!

Everybody has heard of OFF!®, right? It's the name brand of an insect repellent. Yesterday, I received the OFF!® PowerPad Lamp® and the Clip-On® Mosquito Repellent. I'm hoping to be able to use them over Memorial Day weekend. The weather has been so weird lately, so you just never know. BUT I do want to go ahead and tell you a little about them.

OFF!® PowerPad® Lamp

* One little pad protects the same area as 15 Citronella buckets combined!
* Provides large area mosquito protection - the equivalent of a 15ft x 15ft deck
* Relies on a heat-activated repellent pad - no spraying required
* Great for cookouts, outdoor parties or camping

OFF!® Clip-On® Mosquito Repellent

* Provides personal protection against mosquitoes
* Protects from head to toe
* Relies on a quiet little fan and odorless repellent - no spraying required
* Great for reading outside, gardening or watching outdoor sports

I think I'm going to love the lamp. It's really a very decorative addition to any patio and to keep the bugs away - it's great!!

Which product would you like the best?

Leave me a comment telling me about what you think you'd like or dislike about OFF!® PowerPad Lamp® or Clip-On® and I will send you a $3 off coupon for the product of your choice. I only have 5 coupons for each product so act fast. It's first come first serve! Make sure you fill out both the Coupon Request Form AND leave a comment below. One coupon per household.

Obama: The Historic Journey: Young Reader's Edition Review

As a parent, I want to educate my children on their country, the history of their country and share with them the magical moments of change that occur. Sometimes we run across a once in a lifetime opportunity to do that. A moment that changes everything!

Just this year, we were able to watch the first African-American man become President. Many said it would never happen. Some disagree with the majority decision to elect him. Regardless, this is history! And we owe it to our children and all future generations to share this momentous occasion with them.

The New York Times
has released an amazing book adapted for young children that allow us to share each moment; from the childhood of a young boy called the “skinny kid with the funny name”, through the race for candidacy, and following up to the moment of inauguration.

Obama: The Historic Journey: Young Reader's Edition is American history at it's best. This hard cover book contains 96 pages chocked full of pictures and quotes. states the reading level as ages 9 to 12, and I would agree. My daughter is 5 and it was way over her head. We had to stop reading, but I can definitely see us trying again after she is a bit older. She did enjoy looking at the pictures and asked many questions as she did so. Even I enjoyed reading this book. It gave a personal touch to the man we now call President.

I would recommend that everyone should add Obama: The Historic Journey: Young Reader's Edition to their library. Whether you are a homeschooling family, or someone who loves doesn't matter, this book is a wonderful way for us to celebrate the amazing country we live in - where every dream can come true.

"If there's anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer."
- Barack Obama; November 4, 2008
