Make a Natural Difference Shutterfly Giveaway and more


Make a Natural Difference Shutterfly Giveaway

Our National Parks, in my opinion, are the most gorgeous places in the world. Whether you are visiting the Everglades, Grand Canyon or right here in my backyard, the National Lakeshore, there are gorgeous views all over the country. The United States has 59 protected areas known as National Parks.

I’m excited to partner with Smucker’s Natural Peanut Butter to share a glimpse into the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, right here in Indiana. 

Make a Natural Difference

Smucker’s, Laura Scudder’s and Adams Natural Peanut Butters have partnered with the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA) to support the National Parks through a $100,000 donation for projects. 

Now through October 8, 2014, the brands are asking that you get outdoors and document your adventure through photographs. The “Make a Natural Difference” photo promotion gives you a chance to win great prizes!

Where can YOU make a difference? Do you conserve water? Perhaps you use a water filter instead of buying bottled water. Or maybe you have a compost bin?

Now is the perfect time, as the Summer is winding down and the weather is cooling down a bit, to head to a National Park with the family. Pack a picnic, grab your camera and enter the “Make a Natural Difference” photo promotion.

Bissell Symphony Review: All In One Vacuum And Steam Mop

Vacuuming is one of the most dreaded chores in our house. Not because it’s hard, but because there’s a lot to vacuum. Our house is pretty much all hardwood, except for the few places we’ve covered with rugs andwe’ve been looking for a while now for an option to vacuum and mop up easily. And I think I’ve found that option.

Bissell-Symphony-All-in-One-Vacuum-and-Steam-Mop-Review

I’ve gotten the chance to try out Bissell’s new Symphony vacuum and steam mop, and so far I’ve been pretty happy with it. Before even using it, the first thing I noticed was it’s size. With its collapsible handle, it takes the least storage space out of all the vacuums that I’ve had. In a house full of knick knacks and decorations, storage space is a commodity, so that’s a big plus for me.

The Symphony is available exclusively at Walmart for $198.96 and here’s some of the features you get with this product

  • One pass cleaning fo both dry and sticky messes
  • Easy to use Easy Touch Digital Controls
  • Adjustable handle that collapses for easy storage
  • Steam eliminates 99.9% of germs and bacteria when used as directed
  • Dry Tank Technology to keep steam moisture out while you clean
  • A patented easy-release mop pad tray
  • Innovative suction design for superior dry debris pickup
  • 3 ways to clean; vacuum and steam at the same time. Or use as a separate vacuum or separate steam mop.

After I gave it a couple tries around the floor I found a few good and bad things.  Let me get the bad out of the way first. The seal for the water tank closes a bit too tight. I needed a knife to pry it open. Secondly, the mop pad seems like it would get dirty quickly, so for bigger houses you’d need to buy an extra pad. My last gripe is that it’s a bit hard to push the vacuum when the steam is going.

But I suppose that’s a fair trade off, because when I ran the vacuum and mop at the same time, dirt and grime went away much much easier. One of the best cleans I’ve had in a while and it gives me some piece of mind knowing that I’m eliminating 99.9% of germs and bacteria with the steam..

Other than the water seal, everything else comes out easily for quick maintenance. The cord is long and so doesn’t restrict vacuuming multiple rooms in one go.

Bissell-Symphony-All-in-One-Vacuum-and-Steam-Mop

All in all, it’s a great product. I have some problems with it, but in my opinion the good outweighs the bad. So it gets my thumbs up. If you’re looking for a vacuum/mop for your home, I’d recommend this one. You can pick one up today at your local Walmart or order online at Walmart.com and be enjoying clean floors tomorrow.
