Filtrete Odor Reduction Air Filters #FiltreteFilters by 3M

When's the last time you changed your air filter? 
Did you know the U.S. Department of Energy says "Replacing a dirty, clogged filter with a clean one can lower your air conditioner's energy consumption by 5% to 15%."

Air conditioning experts recommend changing your air filter every 2-3 months.  Besides being one of the easiest ways to maintain a healthy a/c unit, changing your air filter is easy and you'd be surprised how much dust, dirt and dander your air conditioning air filters collect.  If you have allergies or dog or cat, one look at your air filter and you'll quickly realize the importance of changing your air filter.  

Now Hubby and I change our, well Hubby changes our air filters every 2 months.  Because I knew I would be participating in this Filtrete Filters campaign for Mom It Forward, I asked my husband to wait until the new filters arrived before changing them.

This is our filter after 3 months.
Gross huh?

I can't imagine how this gunk would wreak havoc on hubby or my youngest son, both of whom suffer from allergies.  Ugh.  This is just amazing that so much dust could collect in such a short time period.  

We received a year's supply of Filtrete Filters for review purposes including the new Filtrete Odor Reduction Air Filter. This innovative air filter features activated carbon which helps to remove odors from pets, cooking and even mildew.  Notice the darker, colored filter pictured here.    The Filtrete Odor Protection Air Filter contains activated carbon which is known to attract odors kinda like a magnet.  Pretty neat when you think about it.  
Filtrete Air Filters by 3M are a recognized leader in air filters and because Filtrete Filters by 3M are "electrostatically charged" they're able to capture more particles.  One peek at your dirty filter and you will appreciate not having all those tiny microscopic bits of dust and gunk flowing around your house. 

Changing your air filters is easy.  Seriously, it takes all of 2 minutes to unscrew the filter holder, pop out the old filter and pop in a fresh one.  Our HVAC (air conditioning tech) highly recommends Filtrete Air Filters by 3M and told us changing your air filters is one of the easiest ways to keep your air conditioning unit functioning at its best.

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
