So, I guess this is where you’ve come to read my story.
I’ve always been interested in deals. I’ve loved garage sales and flea markets since I was young. I got interested in finding free samples of things a year or so ago, but between working and gaming I didn’t really get into it.
Then my health caught up with me. In April of 2014 I was admitted to the hospital, in bad condition, and nearly died before they did emergency surgery.
I was devastated. In just a few months I had lost my job and I had lost my chance of having kids- they took all but one ovary and I was pretty emotional. I couldn’t even afford to play WoW anymore. My husband was supportive, but I got bored easy.
So I started looking for things to do. I’d fought against facebook for a long time, but finally went to it so I could play Words with Friends and Candy Crush, even if they’re hardly my idea of gaming. I got the idea to look for free samples, and found Freebie Shark and Coupon Clipinista.
And then someone introduced me to product reviewing. I jumped into it. It let me try new things and I didn’t have to pay for it (at the beginning). Then things started turning around. I got a job at Office Depot, got into a great set of Product Review groups, and I’ve made some amazing friends doing this.
So this is Products That Wow. I guess it’s the culmination of a long road of product testing and me wanting to finally go further with it. It’s a lot of fun, and I plan on putting the most impressive things I get to review here. It’s been a long trek since I started with supplements, but it’s been well worth it. I’ve seen amazing things and met amazing people (along with some screwy ones!) but I wouldn’t trade the experience.
And I’d love if you’d follow my trip. Just hit the sub button and you’ll be able to!
