Legacy of Clean All Purpose Cleaner

What motivated me to buy a white kitchen trash can, I may never know. With a 4 year old and a 1 1/2 year old {and my husband and I}, the outside of that thing was never clean. Water will actually leave spots. In Illinois, it stayed next to a highly traveled door and was constantly dirty, unable to keep it clean, I only cleaned the outside when I cleaned the kitchen floor {and not always}. It was the perpetually dirty trash can.

Fast forward to our move down south. My sister sent me the coolest housewarming gift, cleaning supplies! The Legacy of Clean Intro Bundle to be exact. So many cool things came in this box {all full size, no sample sizes here}, but I want to focus on the LOC All Purpose Cleaner.

This is the cleaner to beat all cleaners. A big title, I know {in my opinion} but try it! I've used it everywhere. In my home, its home, is in the kitchen and that is where it is primarily used, it keeps my table and counter tops oh so pretty. I've used it in nearly every room of our house. I've used it to spot clean our floors when I don't want to get the steamer out, I've used it to wipe chocolate fingerprints off a framed picture, to clean the inside and outside of the refrigerator and freezer, the stove and microwave, it's my go-to cleaner for anything sticky found, well, anywhere.

And the scent, oh the scent...
Sorry, had to take a moment and clean something so I could enjoy it yet again. {No really, I just cleaned my daughter's booster seat.} It has a soft, citrus scent that is clean and crisp. I will go out of my way to find things to clean. My white kitchen trash can, it has never been so clean!

Furthermore, it is environmentally friendly, dermatologist tested and NEVER tested on animals.

Check it out, you'll be glad you did.

Simple Green Dog Stain & Odor Remover

When we decided to get a new puppy, I totally forgot all the work that goes into having a new puppy. The most pain-staking part to me is the housebreaking. It is so give or take with our newest addition. We have good and bad days but after talking to people, I am under the impression that things are right where they should be.

The unfortunate part of housebreaking is that our entire house is carpeted and the previous renters had a dog. So of course Daisy found the few spots that the previous dog frequented also.  I have been trying everything to get her to stay away from those spots. I tried regular carpet cleaners, regular vinegar, cider vinegar and nothing seemed to work.

Until I tried Simple Green Dog Stain and Odor Remover!!

It is amazing. I cleaned up a spot she urinated on, one that she continued to go back to and she hasn't gone back since. Any spot that she had peed on, I used the cleaner and she hasn't gone back. I even cleaned out her kennel and you couldn't even tell she peed in there. The scent of the cleaner is so fresh  and clean, you can't even tell that we have a puppy who is housebreaking.

It has Fresh Bond® Odor Eliminating Technology. But the best part is that it is non-toxic and biodegradable, which makes it people, pet & surface safe!! Having small children playing around on the carpet made me concerned that using all these chemicals might start affecting them too. Finding this product has been not only a miracle for us but it has saved my sanity during the hardest part of owning a new puppy.

Simple Green Dog Stain and Odor remover can be found at both PetSmart and PetCo. It runs between $9.99 and $22.99, depending on the size you purchase. You can find more information on the product at!!

Dove Damage Therapy Shampoo (Free Sample)

A few years ago I swore by the Matrix Sleek & Shine line of products.  They are amazing products, but they really put a dent in your wallet at about $20/bottle.  About a year ago when we moved and bought a new home, I decided it was time to find something cheaper.  I've been bouncing between brands and have finally found something that I love!
Dove has come out with a Damage Therapy line.  I use the Dove Damage Therapy Shine Boost Shampoo and Conditioner.  It leaves my hair so soft after I blow dry it.  The best part is, it's only around $4/bottle!  There are actually two places to receive free samples right now:

Weigh-In Wednesday: Road Trip!

I've been racking my brain for something that I just could not live without during our pack out. Unfortunately, nothing stands out. But the road trip, now that's a different story. You see, I just made a 16 hour (2 day) road trip with two munchkins, my husband in a different vehicle. I had two things I could not have made the road trip without; Pepperidge Farm Mint Milano Cookies and an audio book.

Now, I could review the cookies but I don't have any on hand and I must be able to snack as I type and seeing as I'm visiting my parents, I can't run out to get some (they live in the middle of nowhere). So I will save them for another day.

And as we're getting ready to make another road trip I'm hoping some of you can help me. I'm in the market for a new audio book and am looking for suggestions.

What audio book can you not live without?

Minute Maid Fruit Falls vs. Capri Sun Roarin' Waters

If you're like me, you (and your kids), probably enjoy the convenience of juice boxes, especially during beach and picnic season.  The problem with juice is all that sugar!  I was so ecstatic when I found out about the Capri Sun Roarin' Waters while vacationing in Tampa last year.  The common assumption was, "It's just water, so they can have as much as they want."  FALSE! 

On a recent trip to the grocery store I compared the labels on the Capri Sun Roarin' Waters and the Minute Maid Fruit Falls.  I was shocked at my findings!  I expected them to be identical.  Truth be told, the Minute Maid Fruit Falls are the better choice. 

The Capri Sun option contains 30 calories and 7 grams of sugar per serving, whereas the Minute Maid option contains 5 calories and less than 1 gram of sugar per serving.

Here is the nutritional information for the Berry flavor of each beverage from each company's website, however, the box of Capri Sun that I looked at in the store listed High Fructose Corn Syrup as the second ingredient.  ACK! :
