This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TABASCO ® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

TABASCO Sauce

I have always loved my foods with a little kick.  I always shave TABASCO ® Original Red on hand to toss into my meals, so I can add a little extra spice to my own.  It’s delicious in Mexican recipes, pastas, eggs, pizza and so much more.

Superbowl is right around the corner and , honestly, I can’t think of a single food on your party menu that doesn’t taste better with hot sauce!!  Definitely, try it out on your next pizza and check out Tabasco’s Game-Day Party Menu  for some delicious recipes for your Superbowl party, including Pizza Perfected.

  • Maybelline Foundation Sample: Head to Target.com samples and pick up a sample of Maybelline foundation.   Thanks “Its All Free Online”
  • Avon: Check out the outlet area at Avon.com.     Lots of great deals.   This cute bracelet is only $7.99.     There is also several items that you could hint you might “NEED” for Valentines Day.   Several lotions and Body mists for $2.99 and less.
  • Crafts : Well with a huge ice and snow storm coming our way I decided to Google (well Swagbucks search) “Think Spring Crafts”   I didn’t get any Spring results but I did come across this sight. Recycled crafts.   I liked the wine bottle cork board but would never ever be able to save that many corks.   The Styrofoam stars are kind of cute.   And this looks like a great Idea.   Recycle old sweaters into scarves.   Also a good craft sale idea!  

Need more frugal ways to pamper yourself?   Indulge in the latest magazine offers and restaurant deals!
