Cool Gear Ez Freeze Water Filtration Bottle Review
Water Filtration Bottle

Despite living a frugal lifestyle, I never managed to take the step to use a water filtration bottle. No matter how many articles I read, I just could not get myself to take the first step. So when I got the opportunity to try out the Cool Gear Ez Freeze water filtration bottle, I was both hesitant and curious.

Living in South Florida means that bringing water everywhere is a must, so I always have a cooler bag with water and juice with me wherever I go, because I need to make sure that my kids do not get dehydrated when the temperatures rise.I find the Cool Gear Ez Freeze water filtration bottle interesting for several reasons, but I especially love the freezer stick, because it helps keep the water cool on hot days.… Read more

Organic Skin Care: Amazon Rain Lluvia Crystals Exfoliator Review & Giveaway
Amazon Rain
I am always excited to try out new beauty products, and even more so when the products are all natural.  I recently tried out the Amazon Rain Lluvia crystal exfoliator, a new organic exfoliator from the Amazon Herb Company, which features organic and wild-harvested ingredients from the Rainforest. 

The Amazon Rain Lluvia crystal exfoliator gently polishes the skin with fine marine silica crystals, and compared to other exfoliators I have tried it is more gentle because of the small size of the crystals

The crystal exfoliator leaves my skin clean and refreshed without using chemical ingredients, and it only takes a small amount to exfoliate every day.Read more

I am not afraid to admit it, but I have always been too cheap to have holiday lights up outside. The added cost on the electricity bill was simply something that my frugal mind could not get used to, so instead we settled for lights inside on the Christmas tree only. This month everything changed, when I discovered solar Christmas lights from solarchristmaslights.com.

Green Works Environmentally Friendly Cleaning Products Review

With three boys in the house, I feel as if I am constantly cleaning, and I go through way too many cleaning products every year. Thankfully Green Works has a complete line of naturally derived environmentally friendly cleaning products, which makes me feel better about all the cleaning products I go through.
I was very hesitant about whether or not the Green Works laundry detergent would work as well on my sons’ white school uniform shirts as my regular laundry detergent, but I am pleased to say that the Green Works laundry detergent did the job. 
Green Works laundry detergent has been dermatologist-tested for sensitive skin, and it is made without phosphates, optical brighteners or harsh chemical residue.… Read more
