48-Hour Giveaway: $50 Credit to Gabriel’s Good Tidings

good tidings
Gabriel’s Good Tidings is a small yet growing Etsy shop. Amy Gabriel, who is a frugal wife and homeschooling mom, loves to sew and loves creating and selling one-of-a-kind items via Etsy.

In the last twelve months, Amy has been able to supply 75% or more of her family’s monthly income through wholesale and Etsy sales as her husband completes his master’s degree and nears graduation this December. How amazing is that?!?


Amy’s most popular item is her clip-on lip balm holders.  They easily attach to purses, key rings, diaper bags, backpacks, and more and keep that lip balm from getting lost in the bottom of your purse!

She sent us some of these and we’ve loved them. My kids especially loved the various patterns — she offers a fabric style for just about everyone!

She’s recently expanded her product line to offer personalized lip balm holders, glitter lip balm holders, and even has a clearance section in her shop.


In addition to lip balm holders, Amy also creates unique holders for 5 ml essential oil bottles. The available colors coordinate with popular label colors, and are designed to hold the Young Living 5 ml or similar sized bottles.

Like the lip balm holders, these essential oil holders also clip on to purses and key chains to keep essential oils easily accessible. She’s worked with many essential oil distributors to offer giveaways and discounts to those who love their essential oils.

These essential oil holders would be especially great if you have a few oils that you want to always bring with you when you’re out and about. Keeping them on your handbag, diaper bag, or key chain will guarantee that they are always handy when you need them!

Special Offer — 50% Off!

For the next seven days, Amy is offering 50% off to all MoneySavingMom.com readers!  In her Etsy shop, simply use the coupon code MSM50OFF at checkout and the savings will be automatically deducted.

Additionally, if you sign up for Amy’s email newsletter, you’ll receive a coupon code to save $5 off any purchase of $10 or more – and this coupon never expires!

You can read more about Amy and her journey to becoming a work-at-home momprenuer on her Etsy shop’s about page or on her Instagram page or Facebook page. Amy is based in Orlando, Florida and when she’s not sewing, she enjoys reading, swimming, and going on day trips to the beach.

Weekend Giveaway: Lip Care Set from NOYAH (7 Winners)


The makers of NOYAH searched high and low for cosmetics that would meet their perfectionist standards— lip balms, glosses, and lipsticks created with only the highest caliber of premium, all-natural ingredients, that tasted great, made lips feel wonderful, and followed quality guidelines above and beyond anything on the market. When nothing out there could fit this ideal, they decided to make their own.

Their formulas start with ingredients so high quality, they’ve been certified kosher, and then are manufactured under the very highest standard of excellence to create top-grade lip products for chosen people and just choosey ones.

I had the opportunity to try some NOYAH lip balms and was really impressed with them. They work well and I love the flavors they come in — especially cherry and vanilla!

But you know what I love best about NOYAH lip balms? They are truly made with all natural ingredients. There isn’t anything in them that you don’t know exactly what it is.noya1

And now NOYAH has a new collection of all-natural lipsticks with same high quality kosher ingredients. NOYAH lipsticks are not only made with premium natural ingredients but also deliver highly pigmented color to take your look from natural to dramatic in a single swipe.

The hydrating, lightweight formula keeps lips soft and non-sticky, while the range of colors from vibrant red to flirty pink is versatile enough to take you from your professional day to a fun-filled night. With the ultra-wearable shades available—Empire Red, Hazelnut Cream, Valentine Pink, Apricot Swirl, and Deeply in Mauve—noyah Lipsticks bring a punchy pop to your pout. And since the average woman inadvertently consumes around four pounds of lipstick in her lifetime (yikes!), you can rest easy knowing your lipstick is synthetics-free.


NOYAH’s list of super-ingredients include: highly moisturizing Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, and Jojoba Seed Oil; Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E for their skin-protecting antioxidants; Sunflower Seed Oil high in vitamins A, C, D, E; and nutritious Castor Oil and moisture-sealing Beeswax. These powerful and natural ingredients are packaged in a sleek, modern tube, resulting in eye-catching lipsticks.

In addition, NOYAH never tests on animals, and, through a partnership with The National Health Care for the Homeless Council (HCH), NOYAH donates a free lip balm to homeless and low income people without access to basic hygiene necessities for every photo of a purchase you send in. This ensures that NOYAH brings a smile to your face, as well as to those receiving the donation. Lip balm might seem like a small gesture, but to some, it is a huge luxury!

Ebates Giveaway

How Ebates Works

Ebates, one of the oldest cashback sites around, offers you a percentage — usually somewhere between 3-6% of your total purchase — back as a rebate when you make any online purchase from a qualifying site.

All you have to do is sign up for an account and then search for whatever online site you’re planning to purchase from, find the link on Ebates, and click through that link.

Once you’ve earned $5.01 in rebates, you’ll qualify to receive a check. Checks are sent every quarter. I love getting mine in the mail and seeing how those little amounts here and there added up to a sizeable amount!

3-6% in cash back for your online purchases might not seem like much, it can really add up over time. My theory: if you’re already going to be making the online purchase, you might as well get a little money back, too, right?

After all, it’s essentially “free” money! Plus, when they are offering double cashback, it adds up a LOT more quickly!

Enter to Win a $50 Old Navy Gift Card

Ebates is also giveaway away 2 $50 Old Navy gift cards to readers here to help you with your back to school shopping. Please note: you MUST be a member of Ebates and you MUST use your Ebates account email address to qualify for this giveaway. Entries who are not members of Ebates and don’t use their Ebates email address to enter will be automatically disqualified.
