Review: Vitalife Dog Treats

Jakey- our 3 year old Yorkie- recently had the opportunity to promote for Vitalife, their dog treats that we knew have always been his #1. We wanted to tell readers how much he loves their Chicken Tenders, and now the Duck Tenders, which my mom had gotten him hooked on. He tried the Chicken Nuggets, which are more of a cookie type treat but didn't care for them as much, knowing he had the chicken and duck jerky.

Walmart was out of the Chicken Tenders one time and she just happened to have gotten the duck. Who would have known? He LOVES them. He will stand at the pantry door anytime he wants his strips, and most times we won't touch his other food without these as a "starter". These dog treats are extremely popular so be warned that once your dog tries them, they may get hooked and snub their noses up to anything else you give them afterwards!

Vitalife treats can be found online and at selected retailersVitaLife dog treats are made with all natural, farm fresh,wholesome, pure and simple ingredients, and come in a large variety of flavors for your dog to try.  100% natural ingredients with no added Glycerin, Salt, Artificial Colors or Artificial Flavors!

Manufacturers Continue To Downsize Their Groceries

Well, it seems that every time we head to the grocery store we're seeing the downsizing of groceries.We are seeing that products have slimmed down while grocers are charging the same price.

Today was a perfect example when I bought Christie's Goodie Ring cookies. I immediately noticed the bag I once got that I thought was 350-400 g was now a box and  had gotten about half the size smaller than what it used to be, yet the cost remained the same.

Getting back home, I looked at a few other items, joking to Gerry that the Kraft Cheez Whiz used to be 500 g and I bet it was 400 g now. Upon actually looking at it, I saw it was 450 g. So it had actually downsized.


So what can we do? Unfortunately little. But we can become smarter shoppers. Buying clearance/ reduced products, shopping sale flyers, combining coupons with sales, buying in bulk, and more. 

What are YOU doing to fight the war on high food costs?

DVD Review: "The Guest" and A Prize Pack Giveaway (USA/CANADA)

DVD: The Guest- 
Released January 6, 2015
Suspense/ Action
Rating : R


When David knocks on the door of the Peterson family home, he presents a living connection to the son they lost in war. David says that he was with their son when he died in action and, in his final moments, he asked him to check on his family. The family invites him into their home, but then a string of killings in the area warns them that his presence might not be a coincidence. 

Our opinion:

Gerry and I liked this movie. There was suspense right from the beginning, and the movie kept you wondering what really this guy, David, was really up to- and what were his intentions. It was also easy to follow. All characters were well played out, and we'd recommend this movie to anyone who likes suspense and action in their movies.
