Purex UltraPacks + Oxi Review & Giveaway

Giveaway is over! Thanks to all who entered! Winners have been announced!


As part of the Blogtember challenge, I decided to not only review Purex UltraPacks + Oxi, but also to give away a coupon for you to try it as well!

When I first heard about Purex + Oxi UltraPacks, I have to admit that I was fairly intrigued. While Purex has only recently been introduced to my household, Oxi has been a brand my family has used for years. If you couldn't get a stain out with normal laundry detergent, you used Oxi. Then, to sweeten the deal even further, the prospect of having Oxi + Purex detergent in a laundry pod?! Rather than worrying about how much detergent to put into the clothes washer, I can just throw a single dose laundry detergent pod in and go! It's quick, easy, and a huge time saver! Who doesn't want (or need) more time?!

I definitely recommend Purex UltraPacks + Oxi since it fights over 101 tough stains leaving your clothes bright, white, and clean. :)

Now for the giveaway!

There are two opportunities to win:

1. Tell me one of your best-kept laundry secrets!

and/or

2. Share some of your best budgeting advice.

Please remember to include your e-mail address, so that I can contact you if you win. Giveaway will go until midnight est Wednesday October 2. US residents only please.

Good luck!! I can't wait to read your comments!

*The Purex brand provided me with a sample of Purex UltraPacks plus Oxi in exchange for a product review. All opinions expressed here are my own.

  50. Best budgeting advice:

    Save as much as you can from every check! Even if it's only $20.. make sure you put away something for emergencies. It will add up over time and before you know it you will have a nice little rainy day fun :)

    Another tip is to always price match for groceries if you shop at WalMart. You will get sale prices from every store within 50 miles but not have to spend the gas money or waste time going to tons of different stores. Then put away the money you saved into your savings account.

  95. One of my strategies to stay on budget is to minimize the number of times I go to the store. Studies show that the more often one goes to the store, the more one spends over time---even if they have a list, a budget, and coupons. It is better to buy a larger quantity at once than to buy small quantities more often. (Obviously, this may not apply to some of the couponing/reward points plans that work with match ups.
