Both Sears and Kmart offer $10 back in points when you spend $59 and free in store pickup, letting you earn more points while shopping thousands of gifts online in the comfort of your own home before picking up your items in store in 5 minutes guaranteed (or whenever you're ready). With in store pickup you'll avoid lines, busy stores and the wasted time of walking…

CASCADE® PLATINUM PACS & Get Sparkling Dishes today! #Sponsored

“I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Cascade. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.” 

Awwww... washing dishes.  Love to eat but hate to do the dishes afterwards?  Well, Cascade has a new product to help with this dilemma. If I don't have a full load of dishes for the dishwasher, I usually use my favorite in sink dish detergent liquid Dawn. I usually do the pots and pans on hand by letting them soak in the sink.  But not for now on.  Now cascade has the power of Dawn for the dishwasher. Cascade© Platinum ActionPacs™ with Dawn® Grease Fighting Power finished this load of dishes without even prewashing.  I did not want to show you how dirty the dishes were before but just imagine salisbury steak, mac & cheese, broccoli and spaghetti (made for my little picky eater).
