Recent Natural Product Purchases

Since having my son I am becoming even more conscious of what I put on my skin. Here are a few products I have tried out recently:

 

I have loved Renpure products since I was a freshman in college. I recently ran out of my liter of conditioner I bought last year on sale at Ulta and decided to pick this up on a whim. It smells really good, but I do not think it does much for my hair. I have been using it for about two weeks now and it seems like my hair is much oilier than normal. I will continue using it up and give an update! $6.99 @ Target

Although this product isn’t 100% natural I love it. I feel like it really makes my skin feel nice. I more than likely will not repurchase it because I am going to try to make it. I just need to find someone to give me their old coffee grounds since neither my husband nor I drink coffee. Price: Around $13

I was super excited when I saw this deodorant at TJ Maxx for $3.99. Ive been wanting to try deodorant paste since seeing an episode of Shark Tank that featured a brand. I really like this deodorant. The smell is nice and goes away soon after application which i prefer.

 

It comes with a small spatula that you use to put the paste on your fingers and then you apply to your underarms.

I recently decided I wanted to make my household cleaners with essential oils so I ordered this set of Amazon for around $15. I’m sure there are better brands out there, but for cleaning this should do the trick.

I have been wanting to try this mask for a few years but never got around to ordering it on amazon. My husband and I went to an HEB (our local grocery store) a little farther away from our house and I found it for around $6. I love it. Since I am breastfeeding I cannot use a lot of acne fighting ingredients. This really helps my skin stay clear.

Since finding out the Garnier Miceller water had cancer causing chemicals in it I have been trying to find a replacement that is just as good. I picked this up today at Costco for $6.97 which is a good price considering the 6.7oz size would be at least that much at Target. I haven’t used it yet so I will update with my thoughts.

 

These are a few new to me products I have purchased recently. I will do a followup post and let you all know how I feel about them!

Salvation Army Family Day Finds!

 

Wednesdays at the Salvation Army all clothes, shoes, purses, and jewelry are 50% off. Since having my son I am a completely different size. Surprisingly I am smaller now than when I was pregnant. I have one pair of jean shorts and it is now getting hot in Austin, Texas. So instead of buying brand new clothes I am trying to only buy used.  Before my husband went to work I quickly went to the thrift store. Here are my finds:

 

A Halo Sleep Sack for .99

 

A cute Alice shirt for .99. It was too small for me so I am going to try to see it on ebay.

Carters Child of Mine Pj’s .99

A Billabong scrunch butt bathing suit bottom .99. The only clothing item I bought for myself that fits.

Hollister shorts $1.99. These did not fit either.

 

After baby I have no idea what size I am. I guess I am forced to go back next week!

Saving Money at Home Depot on a new Wooden Gate


My mother needs a new gate for the fence around her house. She no longer owns a dog so there is currently just a gap. We are going to visit for Easter and we are bringing our puppy. We could have brought his movable ‘play pen’ aka huge movable fence but then I realized, why would we try to find a work around when it might just be easier to fix the gate?????

I found the gate and supplies we need at Home Depot for the lowest price. I figure that we are probably going to spend about $50-75 which isn’t bad for a home repair/Easter gift. I might also throw in some paint that I know she needs. But I still wanted to pay less! I knew that someone close to me had recently received a $100 Home Depot gift card as a gift and didn’t currently need it. I offered to trade them for $75 in Amazon gift cards that I will be getting for free from Swagbucks and rewards points on my credit card. They agreed! I also joined the Home Depot e-mail list for another $5 off of $50 coupon. This would save me $30 or 30%. I’m excited to by saving money on something we needed to buy anyways. Not mention that the gift cards I traded were free to begin with.
