Colgate Optic White Sparkling Mint
Aug. 28, 2015
I am on the hunt to find anything that will whiten my teeth while not making my teeth any more sensitive than they already are. I have used this for a couple of days now and I am happy with the results. My teether weren't sensitive and they felt very clean. Can't wait to see what my teeth will look like after a week of using the product.
From the manufacturer, "Colgate® Optic White® Toothpaste goes beyond surface stain removal to deeply whiten. With regular use, this whitening toothpaste will remove stains ordinary toothpastes don't and whitens teeth 3 shades*, with whiter teeth starting in just one week!
With regular use, Colgate® Optic White® toothpaste removes stains ordinary toothpastes don't. In addition, this product has a special formula made with enamel-safe whitening toothpaste ingredients."
Do you use whitening toothpastes? Have you had success with whitening toothpastes? I got this as a free sample to try. All opinions are my own. Have a HOPtastic day!!

I added Manitoba Harvest Hemp Hearts Raw Shelled Hemp Seeds to my salad for the last two days and I really enjoyed it. It didn't take away from the salad. I was worried that it wouldn't taste good or ruin the salad but it was a nice compliment to the salad. I love that it is a good source of protein with 10 grams of protien which is something I am focusing on to help me lose weight.

I love the green color of these mitts. I really was excited to give these mitts a test. I used them taking a hot bowl out of the microwave. Also, I used them while I held the hot bowl to help me stir the ingredients. The Silicone made it easy to grab the items and I felt secure that the item wasn't going to slip out of my hand.
Then I used them to get the blueberry streu

I have a friend that in her words wears clown makeup. And when she attends our monthly meetings, she shares the Makeup Eraser and takes off with ease her clown makeup.

When you have a infant or child that is not feeling well, taking their temperature can be a struggle. But getting the temperature is needed so the wrestling match begins.
One time when my son was sick, I took his temperature rectally. It stressed me out because you don't want to cause your baby any discomfort. And when I took his temperature, that was the moment he decid

When my sister was in elementary school, she had her winter jacket taken. We did eventually get the jacket back. It would have been so nice to have a label in the jacket. Then maybe we would have gotten the jacket back sooner.

Among the many things that are hard to do being a parent, meal planning is something I struggle with each week. To this day, I have a hard time eating meatloaf because my mom would make a huge meatloaf on Monday and then we would have leftovers for the rest of the week. So I think most parents can relate.

If you have watched, "Extreme Couponing," the people that are spotlighted have tons of coupons because they are using a coupon clipping service.

Anytime I have eaten at a restaurant, I wished that I had the recipes so that I could make them myself. I try to avoid spending money at a restaurant. It can get expensive to eat out especially when you add in a tip. So I was so happy to recipe a copy of "American's Most Wanted Recipes at the Gril" to review. Although I was tempted by many recipes to try, I picked out A&

So for those who enjoyed my post yesterday with Peanut Butter Bars, I wanted to take them to work but didn't want to leave a pan there. So I purchased a foil pan.

But I do want to clean them since they have been sitting out in the

A long time ago, I stopped drinking carbonated beverages. I primarily drink water. And because I primarily drink water, I want great tasting water. And I like it to be really cold.

And until I received my complimentary Clearly Filtered water pitcher, I t

Finished up our lunch, got gas, drove thru Zoomin Market to get our groceries, and then off to the

We put them in our window sills in our kitchen and we do

Frugal Froggie is an LLC so I do need to file my earnings separately. I found TurboTax Business very helpful in filing my taxes for Frugal Froggie. Last year, I did try to file my taxes by myself but I got so confused looking over the tax form. Having the peace of mind knowing that my taxes were filed correctly last year with the help of using TurboTax Business is worth it.

I recently purchased the Aurora 10-Sheet CrossCut Pullout Paper Shredder because our other shredder died. I firmly believe in shredding bills, receipts, etc after you don't need them anymore.
