Scott Common Sense Community: $50 Give-Away

Tuesday, August 04, 2009

A lot of us moms are familiar with Scott's products, like paper towels, toilet paper, tissues and napkins. But I bet most moms aren't aware of the Scott Common Sense Community (CSC). This is where moms like us can find tips, tools and solutions to our everyday activities.

The site is super organized, pointing you in the right direction, whether you are looking for time savers, organizing ideas, healthy hints or other ways to enhance your home and make the most of your time. Not only can you hear the tips from the experts, like 5 Minutes for Mom, you can also submit your own tips in the form of a video! Trust me, that is SO on my to-do list!

In July, Scott CSC was all about great family vacations and features some great tips and articles on the subject. For example, get a load of this article on how to preserve that vacation sensation.

And to really add that sense of community, you can ask questions, answer the question of the month, or take part in polls. So be sure to stop by Scott SCS and take home a few great household hints from the comfort of your computer!

    I found this to be most useful- When I organize my closet, I put all the hangers facing out. When I wear something, after it's washed, I place it back in the closet with the hanger facing in. After six months, anything with the hanger still facing out goes to Goodwill. That way I keep what I wear and see what I really don't wear.

    I find that getting rid of as many disposable items as we can that we use on a daily basis to really save money. We don't use paper towels or paper napkins anymore. We use cloth diapers. I am going to cloth sanitary pads after delivering this baby. We only use paper toilet paper and tissues anymore. Everything else we use is reusable and saves lots of money in the long run.

    My favorite tip: Computer Cords Such As USB's Etc.
    I have so many USB cords that go to things like my camera, my microphone, etc. When I try to get to one, they are all tangled up. I got those ties from trash bags that I don't use and tie the cords up with it. If the tie is too short just twist two together. It keeps everything so nice and organized and easy to get to whatever I need.

  36. Catherine said...

    What tip do you have for families to save time, money or simply enhance everyday life?

    Instead of going to the movies, have a set night to watch a movie together that you either rent or bought. Do some research on the movie beforehand so you won't be disappointed with your purchase!

    I liked the idea of keeping peroxide handy for soaking toothbrushes and for gargling. It does sanitize toothbrushes and cleans your mouth. lus it's cheap.

    My little girls help me cut out coupons. It's nice to have that activity together and they read the coupons and understand what I'm doing and how much money it saves and are learning the importance of careful shopping.

    My favorite "tip" is more of a favorite motto but I feel that it serves the same purpose! "If you don't have time to do it right the first time, do you have time to do it over again?" Whenever I think of half-heartedly doing something in the mornings to get everyone out the door quicker, I just think of that quote and make sure that whatever it is I'm doing, I'm focused on getting it done right so I don't end up spending more time than needed!

    I love the tip about checking out your childs school website to see if a needed school supply list is posted and getting to the store early to get the best sales.

  54. peg42 said...

    To save money this year, we didn't plan any overnight vacations, but instead planned day trips, that cost little or nothing. So far, we've opted to go to a minor league baseball game, instead of a major league game. We've visited friends and family, many who have built in pools. We've gone to special movies that our local theatre has, that is free on certain days. We've gone on picnics and fishing. All of these activies have cost us very little money and the kids are having more fun than if we went away.

    We like the tips about couponing. Come on it's free money if it's something you'd buy anyway. It's a sales gimmick if you weren't.

  66. Brian D. said...

    My tip for saving money doesn't help the person saving but it can help others. At this time of year every store has back-to-school supplies free after rebate or bonus bucks printed after the sale. Even people without kids should purchase these and then donate them. The person isn't out any money and other kids at school can really benefit.

  70. Laura said...

    I really liked this tip from the Common Sense website: Don’t let a long road trip do you in. Adapt your desk exercises for the car - except when you’re driving, of course. At rest stops, take a short jog or do calisthenics. Stop at a state park for a short hike. Not only is it a good workout, it will leave you refreshed and ready to face more time in the car.

    I like the tip about seperating bananas before storing them and they will last long. ybutler@oppcatv.com

    I thought this tip rocked: "Every week or so I put a bunch of cilantro, 1 large onion and green pepper, 6 cloves garlic, 1/4 cup virgin olive oil and same of water in the blender until creamy. I store in refrigerator and add to soups, ground beef, beans, stews, etc. It saves time and adds lots of flavor." asthenight at gmail dot com

  77. jceko77 said...

    My fave tip is:
    I like how Rachael Ray always puts everything that she is going to trash in the bowl. I do that but now I put a bag in the bowl and it makes for easier clean up.

  78. Amber said...

    I like the tip about using Scott Paper Towels to remove the fat from chicken before cooking. Sanitary and useful!

    My tip is to find other uses for household products. Such as using laundry detergent to get makeup out of a stain on the rug. Or using toothpaste to help get rid of a blemish. Etc.

    One tip I found useful is to use a meatloaf pan to store seasoning packets. They fit in the pan perfectly, it's so easy to flip through them, and the pan fits nicely in the cupboard.

    For question 1, I liked this tip:

    When we go shopping we always carry wet wipes to wipe off the shopping cart. We also wipe our hands with wet wipes before and after shopping. Sometimes we even bring our own bags so not to bring home any bugs that might get in plastic bags. All there precautions make for a (hopefully) healthier shopping experience.

  127. clynsg said...

    The best tip I found was to put ice packs in a sock. Not only would it stay wrapped that way, buy it would be easier to mold it to the shape of whatever was being iced (knee, ankle, etc.).

    Try to make most of your meals at home. Also, collect coupons for different stores and products. Keep them with you. You never know when they will come in handy.

    The "Hangers" tip is very useful. I recently did this and all the closests look so much better. Also, it really helps me to organize the clothes by color too.

    The tip that was most useful to me was-
    Using Onions- When you are ready to use onions, cut the ROOT END off first. Most times, no tears!! It worked for me!

    My tip to save money is- shop for clothes off season. At the end of summer and winter shop the clearance racks, buy the kids one size bigger, and put the clothes away for next season.

    2. What tip do you have for families to save time, money or simply enhance everyday life?

    -shop for gifts when they are on sale, or not during the season...like christmas gifts

    -use the coupons if you are going to buy it anyway, not just because you have a coupon

    -use the dollar store for certain items. they have some sturdy, good stuff

    Tips for others families: Save for your future before your kids. You can always apply for student loans and grants and scholarships, but you're on your own for your retirement. Besides, who wants to move in with the kids when you go broke!?!?

    My favorite hint from the site: "Rethinking priorities and traditions at the holidays helps keep the joy in the season - and the stress at bay." I agree...keep in mind what you are celebrating and why, and the rest will all fall into place. Keep your perspective and have a good time.

    My personal tip for saving money is that whenever you shop online, Google for savings coupons or certificate codes to use. More often than not, you will find some kind of discount from free shipping and handling to money off. It pays to spend that extra two or three minutes searching; literally.

    We've started checking out movies from the library for the kids. You can keep them for 3 days and they're FREE as long as you get them back by the due date. :)

    I keep blended squash and zucchini cubes in the freezer and toss them into any meals I am cooking. They are mild and add a little bit more nutrition. Thanks! thebubbledies(at)gmail(dot)com

  159. myfoxypup said...

    Love the grocery list tool. I get the weekly grocery ads on Wednesday, plan my meals around things on sale and shop once for the week. Makes meal preparation go a lot smoother when you know exactly what is on the menu! And it saves a lot of $$$ by not making 3 or 4 trips to the store.

    my tip to save money is cut out frivolous spending (like coffee shops or going to the ice cream store, you can get a whole carton at the grocery for less than a small bowl at the ice cream shop)

    I loved this tip "If I can't use it all, then it's not a bargain" when buying in bulk.

    I have starting making picking up toys a game for my two year old son. We see who picks up the most toys,while singing our ABC'S, before we can go outside to play. It may not be so much of a tip, but is a time saver and a peace keeper at the same time.

  172. Heather L said...

    My favorite tip is the check list!

    My favorite tip is "I don't like scrubbing pots and pans, etc., so I use very hot water and add a bit of dishwasher detergent. Then I let it sit until the water is cold and what was once stuck, easily rinses out." *Thanks* for the giveaway!

    Don't throw out that used Fabric softner sheet. Use it to clean the lint trap of your dryer.

    Wow what a great idea actualy. A good way to save money.

    I found a tip I had never heard of which was to cut dryer sheet to reuse to remove nail polish. I have never thought of recycling them in any way before so that is the most useful tip I found today~!
    Thanks for Sharing this review and giveaway

    My tip on how to save Time & Money is to shop
    alice.com for all your household needs. Not only are the prices lower to start with if there is a coupon available for that item she automatically deducts it (no more clipping coupons) and all items are shipped free~! I don't have to drive to the store as often so I save on gas cost. I can shop anytime even at 10pm while my children are fast asleep so this saves me time that I can spend with them. I love this site ~!
