Review- Purex UltraPacks

Several months ago I switched from the powder dish washing soap to the little single use tablets.  They are much smaller and easier to store and use.  I found it was worth it to pay the few extra cents to have the convenience of them.

I was recently sent a package of UltraPacks liquid laundry detergent from purex.  These little packs bring that same convenience to laundry soap.  I love these.  They make getting the laundry started a little easier.  You just throw the pack into the washer and start things like normal.  They even work with HE washers you put them in with the clothes rather then in the little dispenser at the top.  I was very pleased with these little packets.  I have used a whole package of 18 of these in the last month or so.  My clothes have come out clean and pleasantly fresh.  These are neat clean and perfectly portioned.  I am always spilling the detergent or putting to much into the dispenser, so these were a nice change to that.  

Purex will be releasing these in February.  I look forward to seeing what the pricing on these will be.  If they are a reasonable price they will surely be on my shopping list.

Kung Fu Panda 2 hit stores with a great double DVD pack! 
From the back of the main movie box: 
Jack Black is back as po in DreamWorks animation's KUNG FU PANDA 2, the fiercly funny, "winning sequel"  to the academy award nominated original film.  In his biggest challenge since becoming the dragon warrior, Po must lead his friends and fellow king fu masters, The furious five, on a mission of epic proportions to defeat his most threatening rival yet.  Kung Fu Panda 2 packs a powerful punch that combines non-stop action, beautiful storytelling and stunning animation in an all new, awesome adventure!
My Thoughts: 
What a cute family night movie!  These animals are very entertaining and the animation is wonderful in this movie.  I love that there are so many different animals featured in this film and they are all so colorful!  The movie moves at a fast pace that is sure to keep the attention of the busiest kids out there.  There is lots of humor in this movie.  It is a very silly fun kind of movie.  
I love that this sells in a two dvd pack the second DVD included is called Secrets of the maters in this shorter film the furious five uncover the legend of 3 of Kung Fu's biggest heroes.  I like having a shorter movie like this for when I just want to let little bit watch a little TV and not a full movie she gets to see the fun and adventure without getting caught up in a long movie.  
This is definitely one to add to the family collection!

Me Giant - Review and Giveaway

I love Me Giant's slogan - Me Giant Small things Giant Style. 
That is a very true statement of this trendy website with some of the neatest clothes I have ever seen.  
We were sent the Moo says the rooster kid's t-shirt to review. 
Since it is winter I chose to get the long sleeve t-shirt.  When it first arrived the first thing I noticed was that quality of the shirt.  It is very thick not your average t-shirt material.  This is the kind of kid's clothes I love, they are made to put up with the wear that children put their clothes through.  The saying really have been a conversation starter, everyone sees it and comes up to tell baby bug that roosters don't say moo!
I also love the fact these shirts come in a cute mini tin lunch box.  This box is a great size to carry some little toys in on the go or to pack small lunches or snacks in.  Baby bug was a little stumped on how to get the lunch box open, but has become a pro now with a bit of practice, love that built in fine motor!! 
These shirts sell for $25 this is on the pricey end but I love the tin box they come in and they really are of good quality.  I cannot wait to see what new designs Me Giant comes up with!! 

Good News!! Me Giant has offered one Learning to be Thrifty a product of their choice.
