Oreck Giveaway!!

I hope that everyone is having a great Friday. When I was trying to decide when to post this giveaway, I figured Friday was a fun way to kick off the weekend!

And those of you that have been with Mommy Needs Pockets for a while, you know-- I hardly ever do giveaways. So this is a special treat for y'all!

We have hardwood floors and tile all through our downstairs. As most of y’all know, BTB does our floors and laundry. Don’t ask me how I got so lucky, but I did! BTB has been looking for a steam mop to really get our downstairs and bathrooms super clean.

{Enter our friends at Oreck!}


They sent us a Grab-It & Steam-It. Y’all, this thing is great. BTB loves it.  Since we received this little gem, I think he’s done the floors once a week. Just so he can use it! His only wish is that is sucked a little harder to get up some of that toddler muck that really sets in on hardwoods.  


 What I like about it—It is so lightweight. I carried it the other night. It was so light and manageable. The cord is nice and long as well. Another huge plus for us. BTB hates having to stop repeatedly to find a new plug.

We used this sucker after Timothy's second birthday party. And if the Grab-it & Steam-it can survive a two-year old party, it certainly can survive normal everyday usage.


 I am here to tell y’all, if I lived in the Nashville area I would be applying for jobs at Oreck, like every day.  I follow them on Facebook and Twitter and the always have amazing things going on for their employees. And because the people at Oreck are amazing, they want one of my readers to win a Grab-It & Steam-It!

 The mandatory entry will be visit Oreck.com and tell us one thing you learned about the Grab-It& Steam-It.

For you over-achieving teacher's pet types:
