Mmmmm, Bacon. (How to Order in Bulk from Zaycon)

Y’all know I’m a fan of buying my chicken from Zaycon. Their prices are extremely competitive for boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I love the quality, and stocking my freezer with forty pounds of chicken at once means I don’t need to watch sales for a while.

I’ve always been sold on the chicken, but I’d never ordered bacon until recently when Zaycon asked me to write this post about the ordering process in exchange for an order of bacon!! (As hubby says, now I’m really bringing home the bacon.)

The current price, 3.79 per pound, is less than I can buy anywhere else right now. I occasionally find a great sale for 2.99/lb (it’s RARE though), but those sales always place a limit on how many packages can be purchased in one transaction. Getting 36 pounds of bacon at once for that price . . . is exciting.

So how does Zaycon work?

Zaycon holds “events.” Go to their website (through my referral link) and enter your city under “events” to find one in your area. Pay attention to the date, time and location. Zaycon delivers orders via a refrigerated truck to a designated place at a specific time. They do not deliver your order to your home. There is a 30 minute window to pick up your order on that specific date. Check your calendar before you order to be sure you’re available to pick up at that (very) specific time.

Zaycon bacon ordering process at ASlobComesClean.com

If there is one near you, you can order whatever item is being offered for that event online. Payment is made online, and you will receive a receipt via email. Bring that receipt to the pickup place at the pickup time, and some nice person will load your order into your vehicle!

I have a Zaycon folder set up in my email so I can find my receipt easily.

You also need to plan for time to separate your meat into meal-sized portions for freezing. (You don’t want to freeze a big block of meat!) With chicken, this is a HUGE job, but I’m excited to see how much easier it is with the bacon.

Other tips for ordering through Zaycon:

  • If you’re scared to purchase THAT much chicken or bacon or whatever, split the order with a friend.
  • Write the pick-up date on your calendar. I put it on the calendar in my phone and set reminder alerts.
  • If you’re not sure about ordering, go ahead and sign up for Zaycon’s emails. You’ll get a notice whenever an “event” happens near you.
  • From experience, I can tell you not to wait if you know you want to order. The events do sell out.

Look for another post soon about my pick-up experience and freezing method!

What have you ordered from Zaycon?

 

 

Disclosure: I’m being paid in bacon for this post. For some reason, that statement makes me strangely giddy. The referral links are also mine. That means I get a $1 credit toward my future Zaycon orders every time someone who signed up through my link makes a purchase. Anyone can use a referral link. If you sign up and love it, be sure to refer your own friends and family through your own referral link. Every little bit helps!

Comfy Shoes For Mama – Reebok Skyscape Review #sponsored #MC #skyscape

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Reebok. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating. 

Reebok Skyscape Review at ASlobComesClean.com #sponsored #mc #skyscape

I’ve been working out. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning for months now.

Why, yes. I am rather proud of myself.

Thankfully, I have good workout shoes, but consistent hard use has taken its toll on them. Aesthetically. I was getting to the point where I felt funny wearing them for non-workout outings. I’d started dreaming of some newer, cuter shoes. Preferably, something in a bright color.

So when the opportunity arose to review the new Reebok Skyscape shoes, I jumped on it!

I’m the mom who goes around town wearing jeans, t-shirts and tennis shoes. But I wanted a cute version of tennis shoes to wear that were still comfy.

These are.

I ordered the (HOT) pink ones from Kohls.com. I debated about the pink, but couldn’t resist. Anything goes with pink, right?

I really love these shoes. They aren’t workout shoes, but they are the perfect comfortable shoes for doing the things I need to do. I’ve run errands, gone to choir practice and directed a play in them.

So how to describe them?

Cushy is a good word. These aren’t like normal comfortable shoes. They’re made out the same type material as molded foam bras (but stronger) so they really do hug my feet. This also makes them very flexible. And they’re lightweight! Only five ounces!

I don’t think of my other shoes as heavy, but there is a noticeable difference.

My only complaint-but-not-really-a-complaint is that I can’t slip them onto my feet. I actually have to . . . bend over and put them on. (Gasp. I know!)

Every time I’ve worn them, someone has complimented them. It helps that they’re bright pink and hard to miss!

And . . . they’re machine washable.

These really are great for my lifestyle when I need shoes that can help me last through a day when I’m on my feet for a long period of time.

 

I also reviewed my new shoes over on Kohls.com!

Does a Dishwasher Need to Be Cleaned?

Does My Dishwasher Need to Be Cleaned at ASlobComesClean.com

Y’all, I had no intention of writing this post. I was planning to write a post about how nice it is to be able to run an extra load when I need to. Y’know, as long as I’m rocking the run-the-dishwasher-every-night-and-empty-it-every-morning thing.

I wasn’t planning to review a dishwasher cleaning product. But I am, because it works.

I’ve heard that sometimes dishwashers need to be cleaned. That made no sense to me. It’s a cleaning-thing.

But I suppose that could be the same philosophy that helps me justify procrastinating on tasks like cleaning the bathtub . . .

Anyway, I had noticed that the inside of my dishwasher looked not-so-great. It was still cleaning my dishes awesomely, but some of my white plates were getting discolored in the places where they are chipped. And the inside was looking brownish. And just recently, even though the insides of my glasses were still perfectly clean and sparkly, there were dirt deposits in the indentions on their upturned bottoms.

I decided to try some (affiliate link alert!) Affresh Dishwasher Cleaner that Maytag sent me a while back. I thought it would be good for the dishwasher.

After I Cleaned My Dishwasher at ASlobComesClean.com

Oh my word, it worked. I know the lighting is different, but can you tell how the middle bottom section was quite brown but now it’s not? And best of all, the three loads I’ve washed since using the Affresh haven’t left ANY dirt deposits in the indentions on my glasses! I don’t have a before picture because it never occurred to me it would help that problem.

Have you ever used a dishwasher cleaner?

 

I’m a Maytag Mom, so Maytag sent me the Affresh Dishwasher Cleaner a while back, but not for a product review. I decided to review it because I was truly astonished by what a positive difference the cleaner made. Oh, and I’m also using my Amazon affiliate link to the Affresh Dishwasher Cleaner.
