As far as pizza goes, you don’t get much fresher unless you make it yourself.

Each week, the Freschetta company will be giving away an iPod shuffle®* player to 50 lucky winners. Even better, they’re also giving away 50 of the iPod shuffle®* players to four Cancer Centers for use by patients while receiving treatment.  Visit their site for complete details on how to enter .

Totsy Review and Gorgeous Amy Kathryn Bag Giveaway [CLOSED]

I love a great deal, as you can probably imagine. And I know you love a great deal too. But now that BabyGirl is now into that tween part of her life I’ve felt that many of the online deal sites were leaving me behind. I don’t have a baby, I’m not pregnant and I don’t wear high-fashion clothing.

So when Totsy approached me to try their site I was a bit skeptical, afterall it has the word ‘tot’ in the name. But I was assured that although the site may be geard toward moms with younger kids that Totsy does have things I’d really want too. OK, I’ll try!

  • Totsy is an online private-sale site dedicated to offering apparel, gear, accessories and more for moms, kids and families. You get invited by a friend and then you set up your account. It’s not some secret society and you won’t get 800 emails a day or anything like that.
  • Up to 90% off merchandise on top-name brands. Yes, indeed! Huge savings! I’ve order BabyGirl some shoes and outfits for the Fall at about 60% off retail. Not the 90% that some of the deals have, but a significant savings nonetheless. I’ve yet to find something for myself, but then again, I have that shopping issue (see above!)
  • Totsy employs sustainable “green” business practices. Totsy plants a tree in honor of your child when you make your first purchase and so far, they have planted over 25,000 trees in Peru! It may not seem like much, but I want to suppor companies that are at least trying to be good environmental citizens while saving me a few bucks.
  • You get Totsy credits for free when you invite your friends to join! When your friend receives their first purchase, you will receive $15 in Totsy credits. That’s pretty great, isn’t it?

Now for the Giveaway!

Win a beautiful Amy Kathryn Geranium Hobo Bag (retail value $100)!

Totsy has offered to give one of my readers this lovely handbag. Being that this is Year of Awesome 2.0 I wanted to share something with you that you’d truly think was, well, Awesome! Perfect for any time of the year, this top-zip bag is both practical and stylish.

Giveaway: Freschetta Pizza By The Slice [CLOSED]

I’m not a big pizza eater. I have to watch my wheat intake. Also, as a Weight Watchers lifetime member that points system is still swirling in my head. But when I do want pizza, I don’t want just anything.

When Freschetta first came out I was excited because I like that idea of making it at home. It was one of the first pizza to come in a variety besides the same frozen pizza standbys. And when I went to Blissdom and had the opportunity to meet with their chef and brand team I learned a lot more about why it is I love this brand. Fresh ingredients, thoughtfully prepared – sauteed onions, balsamic drizzle, actual white-meat chicken.

BabyGirl doesn’t like pizza. Actually, she doesn’t like ‘normal pizza’, as she puts it. And because it’s often just the two of us I’m not going to make a huge pizza when she decides she wants pizza. Enter Freschetta By the Slice! Perfectly sized for a single serving, it comes in a special microwave container to help crisp up the pizza.

We were at the store last weekend and saw these. Having received a coupon from Freschetta, as part of their blogger outreach program, I figured we should try it. And, of course, the coupon was at home! I picked up two packages – the BBQ Chicken and the Chicken, Spinach and Mushroom.

BabyGirl made it by herself and was having lunch while I chatted with my mother in law. As a connoisseur of BBQ Chicken pizza, BabyGirl gave it a thumbs up! She said there was just enough BBQ sauce to cover every bite (as a parent you know how important that it!) and the chicken was soft (again, kids and texture!). Ours did not have bell peppers on it, as depicted in the photo. That’s fine with us because she would have picked them off anyway.

It has a special tray and goes right in the microwave. Two rounds of 90-seconds and a moment to cool off and she was ready to go! I cut up some fruit for her she was excited to try something new. As a sometimes treat, this would be great for us. As a quick snack for kids coming home from school, it would be terrific. If you have kids who might not want the same things, this is a great problem-solver. Paired with a salad and some fruit, it would even work as a quick lunch at the office. Priced at about $2.50 ea (your market may vary), having these on hand wouldn’t break the bank. And for a limited time, you can try it for free. Inside the box (printed on the box) is a mail-in rebate. It is a limit of two, so keep that in mind if you’re interested.

So why do you care? Because you’ll get to really Try It For Free! Freschetta has offered one of my readers coupons for their new By The Slice pizza AND a cute set of 3 storage containers.

Giveaway: Freschetta By The Slice 3-piece storage containers and coupon for free product.

How to Enter: Leave a comment telling me what variety you would like to try.

Extra Entries: If you follow me on Twitter or Facebook or subscribe to my blog via RSS or email, let me know in the comments.

Details: This giveaway is open until April 27th at 11:59pm PST and is open to US Residents 18-years of age or older (Sorry to my Canadian friends)..

UPDATE: This Giveaway is now closed. The winning comment was from #10 (Carrie) and she has been notified. The winner was chosen using Random.org. Thank you for entering.

Disclosure: I received a coupon for a free Freschetta By The Slice product, although I did not use it (See above). I also received a 6-piece storage container set. Yours will be a 3-piece set. This post reflects my opinion and was not edited by Freschetta.
