Sam's Club Simple Savings Twitter Party

On Wednesday, December 7, from 7-8 p.m. Central Time Sam’s Club and; Anne-Marie of This Mama Cooks(@amnichols) are hosting a #SimpleSavings Twitter Party on the topic of healthy eating during the holiday season. I can use this because I went to a pot luck Christmas party last week and any notion of eating healthy went right out the window as soon as my friend Patti put a cake on the buffet table.

To join the party by tweeting to @SamsClub with the hashtag #SimpleSavings between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. CT (8 – 9 p.m. Eastern Standard Time) to get tips and share your favorite healthy holiday meals.

Five #SimpleSavings tweeters will be randomly selected to win a holiday survival gift basket with on-the-go health items such as Excedrin, Emergen-C, Tums and more. I can use this too because I have the taste buds of an eight old kid and the finicky digestive system of a little old lady. *sigh*
