Prepare for the Day Giveaway

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Johnson & Johnson. All opinions are 100% mine.

I don’t usually talk about myself here, and even if you’ve clicked my ‘about’ page we really don’t know each other that well. Blogging is a pretty cool job, but it takes a certain mindset to sit down with the laptop and scour the Internet for freebies. It’s really all about how I prepare for the day. Right now you’re probably picturing a blurry-eyed, pajama-clad mom fumbling in vain for a coffee maker. Sure, coffee is involved, but the real trigger to my day is a double shot of Cool Mint® Listerine® Antiseptic Mouthwash.

You read that right. The secret to blogging is Listerine®.

My Cool Mint® Listerine® Antiseptic Mouthwash is what tells me “Hey! It’s morning! Time to get started already!” It says it nicely, but I get the minty message and I know that freebies wait for no one.

If you think about it, it makes sense to buy the products you use every day at Sam’s Club. If you use them everyday, you want to get the best prices and you never want to run out. Pick up some Lubriderm® Daily Moisture Lotion (hello, it’s got “Daily” in the name), some SPLENDA® No Calorie Sweetner Packs for that morning coffee, RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Deep Wrinkle Daily Moisturizer, and Neutrogena Rainbath® Refreshing Shower and Bath Gel for when you finally do get that well deserved shower.

You can also get the not-so-daily but still important to keep on hand items, like Zyrtec® for allergies and BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages. I like to pair those up with NEOSPORIN® when my daughter takes a tumble on the playground.
