    New Centrum┬« MultiGummies: My two cents, plus $2 off for you (review & coupon offer)

    I am participating in a sponsored campaign hosted by Centrum®. I received compensation for this post. While all opinions are my own, I make no claims about Centrum® as a product or its effectiveness.

    I recently learned I could start my day with such treats! New Centrum® MultiGummies for adults are gummy goodies that are not only good to eat but—more importantly—they're...

    Cool down with the NewAir AF-1000 Evaporative Air Cooler (video review)

    Air-conditioning in my house? Won't be happening any time soon, thanks to the outrageous cost of installing A/C in an old house with a boiler system.

    But... thankfully there are evaporative coolers. This one I recently received free for review—the NewAir AF-1000R—is the perfect solution.
