I am a Consumer.

First off – I know it has been a month!!!  Ugh!!!  And I keep talking about getting out of my own way and getting on some kind of blogging  and activity schedule and so far, obviosuly I have not.  So I will not do that to you or myself any longer.  All I can do is try to keep moving forward in my life and therefore my wrting.

NOW  onto my post topic – I am a Consumer!  But here is some basic info.  I don’t have money to burn.  I really don’t buy unnecessary things.  I try to compare prices, use coupons, take advantage of sales, get rebates etc.  Not shop at 7-Eleven or bodgas.  But I am far from that organized and efficient these days.  So I try but I am not 100% dedicated – working on it. I am not the first person to get the latest tech or electronics the minute it comes out either and I just got the iPhone 5S lol.

So why am I making a big deal about being a consumer?                                                                      Because not all people really get to know the products you use or the company behind it.  And brand loyalty is not a priority to many people.  I am brand loyal, to a fault sometimes.  I also research the company behind the product and learn what I can about them.  And I will interact on social media with this companies for a variety of reasons,sometimes often. This is something I started getting into a few years ago.  It is what led me to my first blog  – Product Junkie.  I as usual went too hard too fast and bombed badly.  This is a whole other blog post but I will link the site below – I still have it so in the future I can maybe one day revive it!    https://wordpress.com/plans/freeproductjunkie.wordpress.com

One day a few years back I stumbled on a product testing community that I joined and then found some other ones and joined them too.  I really love getting free stuff and these opportiunities play right to the type of consumer I am. One of them is Smiley360. They are and have been my favorite site! And after a longgg break I logged back in, caught up on some general profile surveys and waited for a mission.  I applied and got accepted and today received my new Mission: FREE Necafe Tasters Choice  Single Serve Instant Coffee Packets. Mission Link: http://h5.sml360.com/-/27zn8 Below is a link to my YouTube where  posted a quick video to show what comes in the kit.  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKfaeW0Ytpc1LBQpvyU9JsA                                              (I don’t use Youtube like that but I don’t yet have Premium here and could not upload the video here)

http://baconmeplease.com/   If you like food, different variations of food, trying new things, having something different, please check out the Bacon Salted Caramels from the Denver Bacon Co.  I stumbled on this free sample over a year ago – tried them and was blown away. Delicious caramel with pleasan smoky bacon bit surprises.  Really good stuff! Plus if your an all out bacon afficionadio you will love the other bacon products they carry – I just ordered all three items the other day because I could not choose just one. Oink Oink What makes is even better? This guy Daniel Bailey is totally down to earth and offers some pretty good deals.  He makes it a point to address his marketing emails to you personally. He has a pretty cool backstory and a company I am proud to purchse from and promote.  Small American Business following their own American Dream!  Anybody try or purchase these? Comment Below, especially if you try them after reading my post.IMG_20160827_225748

If this is the first time visiting I,Lioness please review my previous post “Brand Loyalty – It Should Mean Something” for a little more insight into my thoughts and feelings on the subject.

As always, thanks for reading – until next time peeps 🙂
