The FURminator~money well spent

No it's not a bad spoof of The Terminator! It's a deshedding tool used on pets. The FURminator is a bit pricey, around $25 for the small to $45 or more for the large tool but in my opinion so far it's been worth every penny! We just recently purchased this item and bought the smaller one for $49.99 (priced higher in store than online!) for our short hair dog (lab mix).

He has a terrible shedding problem and even brushing him on a daily basis does not get rid of the excess undercoating. He would still have huge tufts sticking out that you could literally pull out with your fingers. We have to vacuum and swiffer on a daily basis or we are over run with dog hair. We used the Furminator for the first time yesterday and WOW what a huge difference it made. There were no extra tufts of fur left and he looked so pretty after we got done.

We also noticed a difference in his behavior while using a regular dog brush and the Furminator, he would try to run away with a regular dog brush. However with the Furminator he just laid there and let us brush him out.

So what exactly does that Furminator do? Here is info copied from the PetSmart Website:

"Reduces shedding up to 90%! Removes undercoat and loose hair without sacrificing healthy top coat. The stainless steel edge deShedding Tool does not cut hair, it just gently pulls out the fluffy undercoat, leaving the topcoat shiny and undamaged. Leaves coat shiny and shed-free.
The patented design helps stop shedding where it begins in the undercoat to dramatically reduce the mess and clean up of unwanted pet hair. Helps create a shed-less environment by reducing the amount of dander and hair, making it the ideal tool for allergy sufferers. Designed for use on both long and short-haired pets.

The tool will work on all shedding dogs and even on some traditionally "hair-cut-only" dogs, like Terriers and Spaniels to coarsen the coat and blend clipper tracks. A few breeds that are typically not good candidates for the FURminator Shed-Less Treatment are Poodles, Shih Tzus, Maltese, Bichons, Portuguese Water Dogs, and Irish Water Spaniels.
For best results, use in conjunction with FURminator deShedding Shampoo and FURminator deShedding Solution (both sold separately)."

Current rating on PetSmart site: 4.9 stars out of 5! 98% of the customers said they would recommend this product to their friends.

We did purchase the waterless shampoo and conditioner to assist with the deshedding because my dog hates water and baths are difficult to give. I highly recommend trying this product out if you have an animal who sheds alot. Though the price is high it has proved to be worth it and if the sticker price still bugs you check on ebay!

I signed up with Pay Per Post!

Looking for a great opportunity to earn some extra cash online? You can do that with Pay Per Post by posting blog ads for companies! I just signed up for Pay Per Post a couple days ago and was approved today and am ready to start earning money! What's even better for your first post you can earn $20.00, no that's not a typo. This is a legit opportunity that hundreds of bloggers are taking advantage of, so why not you?

Pay Per Post is an exciting opportunity that I am glad to be part of because I can do this in my spare time. It's great for stay at home moms, because you can log on anytime of the day or night and check out the available opportunities to you and complete them. Once you get the task completed you submit your information and they will approve or reject the article. So simple that I plan to do as many as possible every week!

Now I am sure you are wondering how I stumbled upon such a great opportunity to earn money at home. I'll tell you, I was checking out a large work at home board and had seen people refer to Pay Per Post quite a bit but I thought for sure that you had to be a very experienced writer and it would be tough to get in. I was so wrong! It does help to be a writer, one who can engage their audience and make them want to read and learn more, but you do not have to have 5 or more years of experience. In my case I have been blogging for less than a year and was excited to have gotten approved. Pay Per Post is FREE to join, no hidden fees or commitments to make. You visit the website and sign up to become a blogger and in just a few short days you will find out if your blog was approved.

I joined Pay Per Post because I was looking for an honest and easy way to earn some cash while staying home with my kids. The holidays are right around the corner and we all know that can be a stressful time. I plan to make the most out of this opportunity so I can spend some extra money on my kid this year, heck maybe even on my husband!

I really recommend that anyone who likes to write and has a blog to check out this opportunity and being to earn some revenue for your blog.

I love when things come together!

Don't you? I have been trying to work my Tupperware business the best I can considering how busy I have been and really hadn't done any home parties but my grand opening one. So it's a new quarter so time for a party so I'll meet my goals and not become inactive. I posted on my moms group that I was getting ready to plan my next TW party in Sept and wanted to know who might be interested in attending or hosting to email me. Quite a few are interested in attending plus I know the ones from earlier this year are as well. Then two of the girls offered to host a party!! YAY! That's awesome because that means the sales will definitely come!

Now I have to get my butt in gear, I have catalogs on order but I need to put all my party folders together, order forms etc so I am organized for the parties. I am trying to think of some fun games that people will not find boring, especially since they can win free Tupperware! What's better than FREE? Nothing in my book!

I have thought about doing a theme party as well but I need to do some research on the Tupperware forums and see what has worked or not for others. I love that we have somewhere to read all these great ideas and use them. Since they will be weekend parties, I was thinking of a fun girls night out but not sure lol since there's gonna be pregnant ladies there too.

I also had a contact last week from my website who wanted to place an order. That's great because shes local and she works at a doctors office so I left some catalogs for them to look at. Hoping to get more orders or maybe even a party out of it! Keep planting the seeds and they'll come!
