"That they (the older women) admonish the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, to be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed." Titus 2:4-5

Covermate: Review and Giveaway


CoverMate Food Covers


I recently received a box of CoverMate food covers to use and review from CoverMate through MamaBuzz. I was very excited about this product and it definitely didn't let me down!

I really hate riffling through my storage containers to find the right size for the leftovers from dinner. I hate trying to find the lid that fits. That's why my husband usually tackles this part of cleanup. The new solution: just pop a CoverMate food cover over the plate and skip all the hassle! It's ready to go right into the refrigerator!

That's cut up cooked sweet potatoes for the baby, by the way! Like our Pooh-bear dinnerware? :)


This is also perfect for when my daughter won't finish her dinner and I save it for when she asks for a snack... :) They're microwavable, so it makes it easy to reheat her food without it splattering and making yet another mess for me to clean. Their shape allows them to easily fit round or square containers. You can even check out a video about them here.

These little things are super easy to wash, especially if you're a zip-lock baggie saver. I just wash mine by hand in soapy water, but they're even dishwasher safe. The manufacturer suggested turning it inside out and putting it on a clean plate and into the dishwasher. Voila! Clean and dry!

Interested in getting some for yourself? I thought so. If you hop on over to their site, you can get a free sample pack, you just pay $3.95 for shipping and handling. For some reason, their site is having a security certificate issue. I clicked through and it was fine, but it's up to you if you want to click through or not.

Want to get a pack for free and make me pay for the shipping? I now I would! Well, because I love my readers, I will do just such thing. I have one sample package of 4 medium, 4 large, 2 extra large and one small can CoverMates Stretch-to-Fit Food Covers to mail to one lucky winner! To enter the giveaway you can do any of the following, leaving a separate comment for each:
  1. Leave me a comment telling what you think of saving my kid's food and making her eat it later when she asks for a snack. LoL. That's what my mom used to do. Guess we often do a lot of what our parents' did!
  2. Leave me an encouraging comment. Sometimes I just need to hear something nice. :) Make sure it's true though, I wouldn't want anyone to lie!
  3. Become a follower or tell me if you already do (left side of the blog)!
  4. Become a subscriber or tell me if you already do (left side)!
  5. Follow me on twitter or tell me if you already do!
  6. Become a fan of the Christian Frugal Mama Facebook page or let me know if you already are!
  7. Blog about this giveaway and leave me the link.
That's 7 chances to win! Sorry, but I can only ship to the USA or Canada. The giveaway is open from now until Friday May 14th at 11PM EST when I will randomly pick a winner. I will email the winner (so make sure you leave a way for me to email you!) and the winner will have 48 hours to respond. If they don't, I will pick a new winner. Good luck!!

I tried the saving the food thing with my oldest but he was so stubborn I eventually had to give in. I think it's a great idea if you have the will to follow through(which I don't).

I think saving food is a great idea. I really, really hate to waste food. I think about those who don't have as much and it inspires me to waste less.

I think saving food is a good idea-it limits waste and maybe she'll eat it later!

I think saving the food is a great idea--You obviously survived, so I'm sure your daughter will ,too :)

I think it is a great idea to save the food for later. My kids would have love to trade in their good for you food for a not so healthy snack if they had the opportunity.

Domestic Diva on May 3, 2010 at 11:25 PM said...

I think it's fine to save food for later, but I wouldn't get too pushy about it if it was something she just didn't like (we all have our preferences).

I think the saving food leftovers as a snack is a great idea! It instills healthy eating, saves money, and decreases the "addiction" to sugary snacks!

I think it's a great idea to save the food in case she is hungry later. Or if it's dinner, to save it for lunch the next day.
Thanks for the review and giveaway! These would be great for leftovers.

I do the exact same thing!! If they are not hungry enough at dinner to eat it, then eventually they will be!

coriwestphal on May 11, 2010 at 12:55 AM said...

Keep up being firm with your daughter on the eating her dinner thing. It will totally work out in the end. My kids are 6 and 7 and now they know the rules. If they don't eat it, they will have to eventually. It has worked like a charm!

You gave me a new idea of saving food. I was always worried at the amount of food she wastes. Now I can try out your method to see how it works.

I don' see anything wrong with saving your children's food and giving it to them later. My parents did it all the time and I turned out just fine. =) Thanks!!
