WOM - The Factor Tree

I was asked through the website Bzz Agent to review the website The Factor Tree. I received a one month trial as part of the Bzz Agaent program. This website offeres math help for students beginning at grade K. I was excited to try it. I had my oldest daugther who is currently in Kindergarten sit down with me and try it. We started with the test to see where she was. It asked her to count several times, name three shapes and read 3 clocks. It is just questions nothing to hold the interest of children. Nothing moves or makes noise and even the pictures are not that interesting. The only thing she couldn't do is tell time. The website then is suppose to give you worksheets to help them in math. The worksheets they suggested for her where counting. She completed one and was bored and wouldn't do anymore. We did a total of 4 minutes worth of work before she bailed. We didn't like the website.

One of the websites I was asked to check was Because I am a Buzz Agent I received a free one month trial. I thought that it appeared to be a good website and the lessons (mostly math and science) were easy to understand. However I have small children and this website is not practial for this time of my life.


I got an email a while back to check out Bzz Agent. A WOM agency. I signed up and was given a Red Box campaign. I received a free code and was asked to write a reveiw after. It was easy. I did it and then didn't hear anything from the website for quite awhile. I received some emails after that asking me to participate in four more. I received free full size lipsticks from Maybelline. I also recieved a box with 2 Glade products, 2 Scrubbing Bubbles Products and a can of Pledge. I also received two software codes to try some educational websites. I will also post my reveiws on this page too. So far it seems pretty easy and the box of cleaners defiantely cut down on the amount I have to spend on cleaners this month. They let you know it is important to always let people know you are a Buzz Agent and you received something in exchange for your reveiw.

The Beginning

I am a former workaholic. I always worked two jobs and didn't mind. Once I had children, my life changed. I no longer wanted to work outside of my home.
I am a mother of two young girls. I am only working one day a week outside of the home. I am trying out different ways to save money to help me stop working completely and to help my family become debt free, while still being able to afford my children's education. I will be trying methods found on the Internet. I will Blog on those that are effective and those that are a waste of time, and about anything else that comes along.
