Progressive Snapshot Week 3 Results and a Giveaway Too! #TrySnapshot

Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Progressive.

Here I am to week 3 of using the Progressive Snapshot. I've taken screen shots of my progress:

As you can see, I have a grade of an A!

Last week I had a reader comment with these questions--
Do I think that using the Snapshot device causes people to be more aware of their driving and to drive better? My answer has to be yes. I feel like I am a safe driver, but I do notice and try to avoid the hard braking etc since installing the Snapshot device.

What is the average on the hard braking according to Progressive? As you can see from the photo above the Progressive average is 2.2 miles per 100 miles. She stated that a lot of our hard braking is due to other drivers around us, not us. That is true. However, the 2 times I've heard the beeps from the Snapshot device for hard braking were both times when I decided I should stop instead of trying to make it through a yellow light. My bad on that part.

Don't forget that trying Snapshot is totally free for 30 days and you are under no obligation at all to change insurance. I do hope you will click over and check it out. It will make you more aware.

Now, let's get to the fun part! I am hosting a giveaway for some Flo Swag. Cool, eh? (Yes, I plan on being Flo for Halloween--everyone is going to love it!) You can win an I Love Insurance t-shirt, Progressive apron, Flo name tag, I Love Insurance button, magnetic dry erase board with pen, notepad, temporary tattoo and a tin of mints. (As pictured below)

Have fun! Enter with the rafflecopter form below.

Frugal Friday Link Up --September 14, 2012

Welcome to Friday! It's been a long past week with the state fair in town, and my daughter and her boyfriend both working. My daughter will log in right at 100 hours by the time Sunday is over.

I can not say at all that this has been a frugal week! I overspent at the state fair. Yes, it's only once a year, and yes, I had a great time spending, but still.
I did put money down on a new sewing machine though. That was frugal---state fair special was half retail price, and she gave me a discount on the extra feet that I wanted too. I can't wait to pay the other half and get my lessons on how to use it. The lessons are free with the purchase of the machine so you sure can't beat that.

I did have a good shopping trip too where I only spent $3.75 and saved over $34 with coupons.

Today from the 99 Cent Solutions book I am sharing uses for deodorant. Who would have thought there were other uses. Here's a bit of trivia for you too. Roll-On deodorant was inspired by the ball point pen, and it was marketed under the name Ban Roll-On.

1. Protect your feet. Roll or spray a little deodorant--specifically antiperspirant--on your feet. It will keep them dry and keep blisters at bay.

2. Banish bug bites. Applying deodorant to the bug bite will reduce the itching and the irritation.

3. Say good-bye to sweaty palms. If you suffer from sweaty palms when you are nervous, simply apply antiperspirant to your palms---and don't sweat it.

Your turn to share your frugal related posts!

Squidoo Hopping--This Week's Theme is Local Attractions

This week is all about the Kansas State Fair here in my city. That's prompted me to choose local attractions as this week's theme.

This can be an event in your town, your state, etc. Great things are happening all over!

Don't forget that if you blog about squidoo to also please link up your blog posts as well. This can be any blog where you have at least one squidoo link included, tips about squidoo etc.

Thanks for taking part each week. I enjoy seeing all the lenses that are linked up.
