#Combos4Success Old Spice... Helping you be Fun, Successful, and Fresh!

This post was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Old Spice. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine. 




Old Spice coupons are in the house! 

When you're getting ready for something big, like heading back to school, going to a job interview, a presentation, or reporting for your first day of a work promotion...Old Spice has got you covered head to toe. Enjoy feeling confident and smelling fantastic head to toe when you use one of the many Old Spice products in your #Combos4Success!


#Combos4Success come in all different forms.
For my 2nd oldest, that meant leaving school and going right to work.
The decision for him has been a great one, and he's happy.
That makes me happy.

In our family, success means being happy with what you do. My oldest two boys are now young men. Both of them had their college education paid in full long before they ever graduated high school. The youngest of the two went to college for a semester, did well, but opted not to go back. I think he enrolled that semester more for me than anything else. But that's not what I want for my son. What I want is for him to be happy. He's very hands-on, and likes to make things move quickly, college doesn't exactly fit that mold for him right now, and that's fine by me. So...he moved back to his native Florida (where we lived most of his life), tinkered with the idea of attending college there (even going so far as to enroll), and ended up instead taking a fast-paced, respectable job where he makes money quickly, doesn't sit around at a desk all day, and gets to use his skills in a hands-on way that makes earning & learning more fun for him.  He's happy with what he's doing, sees tangible returns on his efforts, and earns instant gratification when he is part of a success story at work (and he's had quite a few of those).

The recipe for his #Combos4Success story is one part knowing what makes him happy, one part being true to himself, and one part hard work in moving forward to make his lifelong goals and dreams come true.

Old Spice appreciates all forms of success combinations. Does one instantly come to mind that's worked for you?

Great coupons (all $1 off or more) found here!



Check out the extensive Old Spice line. Who knew there were this many products? Old Spice is definitely more than just aftershave. These days there is a huge product line with great smelling fragrances for men to choose from. Each allowing for confidence and assurance that all of their grooming needs are well in order.

Even the Old Spice Mandroid gets the ladies
when he's using items from the Old Spice Swagger product line.
The Old Spice Swagger line offers great smelling body wash, soap, shampoo, and deodorant, to name just a few things. Take a whiff at any one of the products on the Old Spice line, and you'll be sold too!



Have you seen the new advertisements for the Old Spice Swagger line? The robot man (aka mandroid) is sure turning some heads, in a good way. Seems he's quite popular with the ladies.  When you smell that good though, I'm not a bit surprised. ;)



Taking a look at the Old Spice infographic above, you can see some great combos for success. I like the water guns & trampolines combo. There's no way that couldn't turn out fun.


Think up some great combos of your own, and leave a comment if you would. I'd love to hear some of your ideas, and Old Spice would too.

You can learn more about Old Spice by visiting their website.

You can also follow them on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and/or Instagram.

Smelling nice is sure a big plus. Awesome he is doing so well too.

Holy Ghost Writer said...

Water guns and trampolines would be great. Paint ball guns and rock climbing?

Brian Miller said...

nice...i took my youngest yesterday...he was so excited...he was finally "stinky enough" to need deoderant...so he and i went to the store and i gave him a little education on the different kinds....and we smelled them...and it was a cool dad/son moment.

Lindsey Paris said...

I prefer the "I'm riding a horse" campaigns to the Mandroid. They aren't as funny to me.

Lady Lilith said...

Looks like a great product. A fresh smell is always nice.

Amy @ Marvelous Mommy said...

Haha, Old Spice always has the best commercials! You look way to young to have boys in college! I thought that was your hubby at first!

becca said...

I love the smell of Old Spice but hubby is allergic to it. what a bumper.

mail4rosey said...

That's his girl in the pic, not his mama. ;)

Heather Jones said...

The commercials are hilarious. I think I'm much like you, while I really care about my kid's education, I really just want them to be happy wherever they go.

Debra Rutt said...

I haven't seen those commercials yet, but the Hubs uses Old Spice in the shower. Says it works best when he comes home from the gym in cutting odor and smelling fresh.

Kori Tomelden said...

My s/o uses Old Spice deodorant, love the way it smells. Their commercials have always entertained me.

MikiHope said...

I have always liked the smell of the original Old Spice-one of my ex boyfriends used to use it. I wonder if he has found the new line? It wouldn't help with me--but hey you never know--

The Positive MOM said...

Being happy with what you do is a great definition of success. Great review!

Coolmoms Cooltips said...

I always find their commercial just so funny!
I know lots of men who swear by Old Spice

I have never seen their ads. My boys are a little too young for Old Spice and we are on a tight budget so my husband usually purchases the store brand deodorants and aftershave. But, thanks for sharing this! Have a terrific day!

Shell said...

My husband uses this body wash. Thanks for the coupons!

alissa apel said...

I love the smell of Old Spice products. It is one thing I am always happy to buy my husband.

Theresa Mahoney said...

I think that is great that your son was able to follow his own path, which led to his current happiness. School definitely isn't for everyone, so that's nice he was able to land a job doing what he loves.

Jason loves the Old Spice deodorant. I like the way it smells too :)

I love the smell of Old Spice, but we only buy organic soaps! Great post

Chrystal Mahan said...

I took a couple years off after highschool before going to college. I went part time and worked full time. I tried really hard but my heart just wasn't in it. I did not finish. It took me about 10 years to go back and finish. In 2008 I went back for my BA, completed it in 2011 and then took 6 weeks off. Started my MBA and graduated last year. I think the big change for me was I was finally ready. I had worked in the field I had been in college for. So, more education would only lead to advancement and better placing within the industry. Also, I was able to take classes online at my own pace. I am thankful for that experience. We are all different and if someone can get a job doing what they love without college, more power to them!

Housewife Eclectic said...

We really love Old Spice! That is always what I buy my husband!

Hubby uses Old Spice- he has different scents for different occasions. There is one that I associate specifically with vacation and when wears it when we aren't on vacation, it makes sad we aren't on a beach!

Danielle Leigh said...

I love your success philosophy! And I also like Old Spice on my hubby :)

Debi Gerhart said...

Old Spice has come a long way from what I remember

Jessica said...

This --> "The recipe for his #Combos4Success story is one part knowing what makes him happy, one part being true to himself, and one part hard work in moving forward to make his lifelong goals and dreams come true." This says it all.
