I recently started using soapnuts for my laundry, dishwasher & general cleaning. Great for people, the environment & eliminating several products for one.224
Soap Nuts are actually berries. They are also good for people with allergies & anti-microbial (good for the septic system). I make a liquid with mine for the laundry & scent it with lavender & orange essential oil
I love Penzey's because they have so much to offer! I especially like that you can order small amounts to try their products. They have great cinnamon, cocoa powder, all kinds of spices and even gift sets you can give away or buy for yourself. They have several SALT FREE products too! This has really helped me with preparing foods with flavor.
I picked up a couple of little jars at the dollar store along with some decrative glass beads. I labeled one jar with - pounds to lose and the other jar with - pounds lost. I filled the first jar with as many beads as pounds I need to lose. Now whenever I lose a pound I move a bead into the pounds lost jar. I sit the jars on my bathroom counter and it is really motivating to want to fill up my pounds lost jar!
