These are my favorite in the kitchen. I use the grapefruit all-purpose cleaner every day...wiping the table and counter tops. Not only does it work and smell good but it's non-toxic and free of harsh chemicals. The dish soap isn't as "sudsy" as other brands but it does the job and smells amazing. The white tea & bamboo is my favorite so far. **Bonus: They look cute.

I've been dreaming about this 4 piece canister set for over a year now....Mom and Dad bought it for my birthday. Awesome. My dala mug brings me all sorts of happy. :)

We finally finished painting the living room and I can finally start decorating. Finally. It's a work in progress but it feels good. Really good. 

I do laundry like it's my job. Purex is cheap, it works and it smells good. I like that it's hypoallergenic, free of dyes and gentle on skin. 

So the verdict is still out on the cookbook but I have loved having meals in the freezer. We have Spicy Chinese Chicken in the crockpot right now. Some of the recipes are like "what?!" and you have to use some common sense but overall it's pretty good. The surprising thing is that the kids have loved every single one of the recipes so far....even the ones I didn't like. Go figure. 

These dishcloths are the bomb. Seriously. Imported from Sweden, they are made out of cellulose and cotton and 100% biodegradable. They're like a cross between a rag and sponge but they dry faster than a sponge and never stink like a rag. They absorb up to 15 times their weight in water and leave surfaces streak free. Just wash them every 3 months or so in the washing machine. Just kidding. They may be a bit on the spendy side, running between $6-$7 per cloth but once you try one, you'll be hooked. I promise. (You can find them online but I know first hand that you can buy them at Lakeside Traders in Moose Lake, MN) :)

  1. I ordered myself some dishcloths! Had to throw like $100 worth of cute designs out of my cart, though. :(
    Also, check out the "Dinner, A Love Story" blog. They have a cookbook, "Dinner, A Playbook" that seems like it might be in a similar vein as "Saving Dinner".
    I loved this post - write about more stuff you love! It's so helpful and interesting! :D
