OFC Giveaways

With the uncertainty of today’s housing market, homeowners continue to look to remodeling and renovations to update and maintain their home. Remodeling and air sealing can save you money and help improve your home. In fact, did you know homeowners typically save up to 20 percent on heating and cooling costs by air sealing and insulating, according to the U.S. EPA?

With spring comes warmer temperatures and simple air sealing DIY projects can be completed within a couple of hours using Dow’s GREAT STUFF™ Insulating Foam Sealants. And, to help see how easy and effective these projects are they are offering up five packages of GREAT STUFFTM Insulating Foam Sealants to five OFC readers. The packages will include Dow’s GREAT STUFFTM Pest BlockGREAT STUFF™ Gaps & Cracks and GREAT STUFFTM Work Wipes to better insulate the home and clean up any small messes.

In addition to the giveaway, Dow has prepared a simple air sealing checklist for DIY projects around the home that can be done with Dow’s GREAT STUFFTM Spray Foam Insulation.

I had the opportunity to try out these products, or should I say the hubby did ;) and he had so much fun going around the house filling in all the cracks. They were easy to use and worked really well from what we could see thus far.

To enter this giveaway simply comment below! Giveaway closes 5/9 at 11:59 PM EST. 5 Winners will be chosen.

Winner of the Noxicare giveaway are…

Precious, “The product sounds great. I usually have a mild pain relieving cream or oil on hand for my small child’s growing pains which wakes us up at nights. This sounds better! Thanks!”

Rhia, “Wow it would be sooo great to try a homeopathic approach for the arthritis in my knees! Anything to help lessen the meds I am taking would be such a relief. Wish me luck!! :)


I was recently sent Noxicare™ Natural Pain Relief cream for review. Since I am pregnant (they say not to use it of you are pregnant), I gave it to my mother who has arthritis to try. She used it on her knees and feet. It alleviated some of her pain, and worked as well as other topical creams she has. The huge benefit though is that the Noxicare is natural. Noxicare™ Natural Pain Relief is a breakthrough natural, patented pain relief formula that is a proprietary combination of 7 of the world’s most potent natural pain relievers that quickly and effectively alleviate inflammation, muscle aches and nerve pain—with NO known side effects and without a prescription.

Noxicare was also generous enough to host a giveaway of their Noxicare™ Natural Pain Relief cream to two OFC readers. To enter the giveaway just leave a comment below. 2 Winners will be chose. Giveaway closes 9/23 at 11:59 PM EST.

Giveaway & Review: Arctic Zero Ice Cream!

by One Frugal Chick on 09/17/2012

Arctic Zero recently sent me their product line to try out. I was given the chance to try out all the Arctic Zero Pints–Vanilla Maple, Cookies & Cream, Pumpkin Spice, Chocolate, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Strawberry, Coffee and Mint Chocolate Cookie as well as their ice cream bars!

First let me say this was one of my all time favorite reviews. I got to try all the yummy flavors, and the products are actually good for you, which has been a huge plus when I crave ice cream during this pregnancy. I liked the Chocolate and Chocolate Peanut Butter the best, they reminded my of a Wendy’s Frosty :)  I also really loved the ice cream bars. They were a great quick sweet snack, and the chocolate they used to coat the ice cream is so super creamy, it just melted in your mouth.

Many describe Arctic Zero as a “super dessert” – a product that provides top nutrition, posses health benefits, has no drawbacks, and appeals to just about everyone.  The pints only have 150 Calories in the WHOLE thing and zero fat! Artic Zero is sweetened with a proprietary blend of monk fruit concentrate and organic cane sugar, so there are no artificial sweeteners or sugar alcohols of any kind. They are Gluten FREE and is suitable to Lactose Intolerant individuals. In 1 Pint there is 14 Grams of Protein and 8 Grams of fiber.

The people over at Planters recently sent me the Planters Nutrition Energy Mix Spread in Cinnamon Raisin Granola Nut to try out. It is super yummy on a piece of whole wheat toast in the morning. I also read of others making trail mix cookies using peanut butter, so I bet this would be great to use instead of the peanut butter. Can you say YUM!? Planters Nutrition Energy Mix Spread  is a new adventurous taste in peanut butter, and the first national brand to mix wholesome ingredients like bananas, granola, berries, raisins, and cinnamon into a peanut butter base. NUT-rition Energy Mix is also packed with 6 grams of protein per serving and 5 vitamins and minerals, providing a good source of energy.

They also are giving away Jars of the Planters Nutrition Energy Mix Spread in Cinnamon Raisin Granola Nut to 5 OFC readers! YAY! 5 winners will be chosen. Enter in the form below:
