4 Moms giveaway: Large Family Logistics!!!

This giveaway closed on 7/13/2011. Large Family Logistics book for moms of many

We’re really excited about this, and we think you will be too.  Did you see the 3 exclamation points at the end of this post title?  Think about it: how often have you seen me do that?  I am not an excitable person (unless there’s a scorpion in my bed).  But this, this is exciting!

Each of the 4 Moms is going to give away a free copy of Large Family Logistics by Kim Brenneman, highly organized mom of 10 kids.  Enter at all 4 of our blogs to pump up your chances of winning – you’re allowed!

And why do you think we’re giving away copies of Large Family Logistics?

Because we’re going to spend the month of August blogging through the book and we want you to join us.  We’re going to do 4 consecutive weeks of linkies!  The more, the merrier, so get ready and tell all your blogging friends to get ready too!

About the book:

Moms have many tasks to tackle and obstacles to overcome: the laundry monster, household clutter and cleaning needs, caring for babies and little ones, menu planning and mealtime routines, town outings, homeschooling, bill paying—and even more!

Like many wives and mothers, author Kim Brenneman didn’t start out with all of the answers. She struggled to figure out: What do I do next? What’s the best way to actually do the many things that need to be done? And how do I get everything accomplished in a 24-hour day and keep my sanity?

In Large Family Logistics, Kim outlines practical solutions she has learned to effectively manage a busy household. This how-to manual is filled with step-by-step procedures, easy-to- understand organizational advice, and a myriad of tips and hints for managing a bustling home with greater efficiency in a way that honors God and builds up family relationships.

Sensible and straightforward, Kim tackles the nitty- gritty, day-to-day challenges moms face and also offers sound counsel on how to plan and accomplish long-term domestic goals. An invaluable home management resource that will equip busy moms to get beyond survival mode and thrive!

Charlie’s Soap giveaway

comments are closed on this post

We did our best to choose a winner randomly, but any Christian knows that Somebody is in control and there’s no such thing as random.  That’s why I was delighted but not a bit surprised to find that the winner of last week’s giveaway for a free copy of Natalie Wickam’s Pajama School is

Tracey, who said:

I would love to win this! I would also love it if anyone that reads this would pray for me as my husband and I consider homeschooling our little ones who are not yet school age.

Thank you to everyone who entered, and please remember to keep Tracey in your prayers.

Don’t forget to enter Natalie’s fun and creative film-making contest to win a free pass to the San Antonio Independent Christian Film Festival, worth hundreds of dollars.  What a great homeschooling project!

Next up:  Charlie’s Soap

We’re thrilled to be using Charlie’s Soap again after a brief excursion into making our own.  Homemade was fun and easy, but as it turns out it does not work well in hard water, nor is it recommended for cloth diapers.  If you have either, get thee some Charlie’s Soap pronto.  It’s quite possibly the cheapest zero-residue laundry detergent on the market, getting things truly clean without a lot of fillers, fragrance or other fluff.

Charlie’s Soap is safe for HE washers, delicates, dogs, and nearly anything else you can think of.

Are you ready to try it?  Don’t let me stop you from ordering some right now (tell them I sent you), but do take a moment to enter this giveaway.  If you win, great! – you’ll have enough to share.

What’s up for grabs?

An all-expenses paid trip to laundry heaven.  This Laundry Powder Combo Kit contains 80 loads of Laundry Powder, a handy Sprayer of All Purpose Cleaner, a Portable Emergency Stain Treater, a gallon refill of All Purpose Cleaner, and a stylish non-woven reusable Grocery Tote sporting the Charlie’s Soap logo.  Retails for $51.92, and worth every penny.

How to enter

Visit the Charlie’s Soap website.  Poke around the FAQ page, full of truly helpful questions and answers plus a healthy dose of good humor.

Then come back and leave a comment telling us why you need Charlie’s Soap or what you’ll be washing with Charlie’s Soap if you win.  Be creative!

As usual, you can enter again each time you promote this giveaway:

  1. blog it. Leave a comment with the link to your post.
  2. facebook it. Leave a comment with your user-name.
  3. twitter it. Leave a comment with your user-name.
  4. become a fan of Charlie’s Soap on facebook. If you’re already one, that counts too.  Either way, leave a comment with your user-name to tell us.
  5. or really amp your odds of winning by doing all of the above! Just come back to leave a comment for each separate entry.
