Wow. Time is flying by. The weather has really been spectacular for this time of year…70′s and 80′s. Quite unusual for the Northern VA/DC area. I’m thrilled, but am a bit worried about the winter not being so nice. Everyone says it’s supposed to be a very cold one.
Today starts the last week of summer vacation for my son. Since my daughter left for ollege,it’s been quite lonely around here these past couple of days. The dinner table has been just my husband and myself with my son finding newfound freedom with the car all to himself. Sigh.
Anyway, I was able to try a couple of new products (to me) this weekend and I thought I would share. First up is this new fruit bar from Trader Joe’s:
There are only two ingredients in each of these bars. (Can you guess what they are? ). I’ve tried all of them except the apple and banana and I can tell you they are filling, sweet and delicious. Each bar is 90 calories, and has 2 g of fiber which is probably why they are quite satisfying. These will now be my ‘go to’ snacks as they are a perfect size to take with me, leave in the car or fit in my purse. They aren’t cheap at .99 a bar, but if they keep me from having a Snickers bar, I’ll buy them!
I’ll have more Trader Joe’s product reviews coming up as I’ve become quite the fan!
Next up is something I’ve been meaning to try for a while:
Okay, okay, I know I’m a little late getting on board with this. I had heard that it works well, but finally decided to buy a small tub and try it out. Today I used one scoop on a light/white load of laundry. Oh.my.gosh. I wasn’t sure if it would be noticeable, but I have to say, this product stands up to it’s claim. My whites were so much brighter!
After a bit of research on this product, I found out it can also be used for:
- tile and grout cleaner
- removing stains from carpets/upholstery
- remove stains from outside furniture
- use it as an all purpose cleaner
If you haven’t tried this, and you have dingy whites, I strongly suggest you give it a try. There is even a $1.00 off coupon here.
Okay, so there are my two product reviews. I enjoyed doing this post, and will do more in the future. If you have a product that you absolutely love, please share it!
Have you ever used OxiClean? If so, what do you use it for?
