Four Chances to Win 2000.00 Sponsorship to #Blogher10 Sponsored by #Energizer

WOW, as far as I can tell you have four chances to win a sponsorship to Blogher this year thanks to Energizer® Recharge Smart™ Charger, Kailani from An Island Life and Krissy at Barefoot Mommies.

To Enter:

You have to tell them why you Deserve to be an Energizer Smart ChargHER and post your entry into their comments section. They are looking for originality, creativity and Krissy wants to laugh.

Disclosure:

I want to enter but wonder if I actually qualify. I have a clothing sponsor that is giving me one outfit to wear. No money, but one outfit to wear. I would love to wear the t-shirt representing Energizer at all other times and under my suit, but I have to wear my rocking outfit at least once.

I also have one very small partial sponsor. So before I enter I just want to put that out there that in a way I have two sponsors, only one has helped me make it to Blogher, the other is just taking advantage of the fact that I’m going to be there. So with full disclosure out of the way this is why I deserve to be an Energizer Smart ChargHer!

I have two young children! Strike that! I have three if you count my technology nerd of a husband. Yes, I’m sure everyone else entering does to, but did they use that as their reason, I’m blaming the fact that I supply them with batteries on a daily basis the reason why I need an Energizer® Recharge Smart™ Charger and would be a perfect spokesperson for Energizer.

Toys Toys and more Toys

 

Oh, and like I mentioned before a husband with a huge fascination with electronics. You should see how we fly through the batteries. All of the items above take AA batteries. We have the DS, the Wiimote, the Vtech toys, the Xbox controller (yes it has a rechargeable unit as well, but we have a cartridge that you can put AA’s into in extreme cases when someone has forgotten to charge all of the batteries. Ahem, you know who you are mister! You might think that using the Xbox controller does not qualify as an extreme case but in a house of gamers it does.

I can’t only give the credit to the children and my husband though; (as much as I’d like to believe it’s their fault we go through so many batteries), I have plenty of items that use batteries. The flash on my camera takes AA’s. And I was cleaning my floors today and realized my Swiffer Wet Jet uses AA batteries. So I can’t even clean my house or take photos without using batteries. My life is surrounded by batteries.

Advice if YOU win:

We do have a recharging system in place already. With as many batteries as we use, we already have a charger, but it’s not as cool as the Energizer® Recharge Smart™ Charger. It doesn’t have an indicator on it telling us when we need to toss one because it will no longer charge, it doesn’t tell us how much power is in the batteries we want to charge, and it doesn’t have an awesome LCD screen that tells us how long the batteries will take to charge. The Energizer® Recharge Smart™ Charger does all three.

What we do have is:

We have a drawer dedicated to batteries. Inside that drawer we have a plastic container labeled, “needs to be charged” and a plastic container labeled “Charged and Ready”. We even marked all of our batteries with symbols so we know how old certain ones are. Yeah, we’re that nerdy! I recommend that you at least find a way to keep your charged batteries organized. It will just save you a few minutes so you don’t have to test them, but at least with the Energizer® Recharge Smart™ Charger you can test them. ;-)

    You’re so funny LB! Loved the post! What is our world without batteries?!?

    You forgot the mention recycling batteries though … do ya’ll recycle them when you’re done? Both rechargeable and non-rechargeable batteries can be disposed of properly by taking them to the proper facility. Many electronic stores, hardware stores and now some grocery and discount shopping stores offer rechargeable battery recycling. Just simply drop them in the provided bin. And for the non-rechargeable ones … this is a bit trickier … I’m lucky that the church where my toddler group meets offers free non-rechargeable battery recycling. I don’t know where they take them, but I collect ours in a tomato or berry clamshell container and turn them in every month or so. While we need the energy batteries supply to live day to day we can also be Earth-smart about what happens after we use them.

    Best of luck! I hope you get the sponsorship! You really do deserve it! Mom Love ~Sum
