I am always searching for great eco-friendly household cleaners. Some fall short of actually working how they are supposed to. At last, I found a great line of products that works great and are eco-friendly too!!

The Ecostore USA is an extension of a 20 year old New Zealand company http://www.ecostore.co.nz////// that makes plant based , non-toxic Household Cleaning, Baby and Personal Care Products that contain No Nasty Chemicals(tm).

The The Ecostore USA sent me these three products to test. I was so excited to try them! Let me tell you, I was not disappointed with the results.

I have tried many dish soaps over the last year that claim to be eco-friendly but most have very little suds and just do not clean as well. The Ecostore USA Dish Wash Liquid still had suds, smelled great and worked wonderful! I love it!! It is super concentrated so you need very little to clean a sink full of dishes.

The Coconut soap was the item I was most excited to try. It smells so good! I have been using it to wash my face. It leaves my face feeling so good! This is a product I will buy all the time now!!

The Spray Cleaner was used to clean the kids bath tub. I sprayed their tub and then went to take a shower. When I came back, I went over it with a scrub brush 1 time real quick and that was it. Easy cleaning and eco-friendly!

I love knowing that I am not using harsh chemical around my kids and I am helping the environment at the same time. Being more environment friendly is very important to our family.

The good people at The Ecostore USA want you to try there products too. By entering here, you can win a $25 gift card to try what ever you would like from http://www.ecostoreusa.com/. 1 winner will be selected on Tuesday June 30, 2009.

My favorite spaghetti sauce.....


When we are not using home made sauce, that we make free with all of our fresh garden veggies and then jar it for the winter, we prefer Ragu. I grew up on this sauce. My family never had a lot of money when I was a kid but my Mom always insisted on Ragu instead of store brand sauce. Spaghetti made with Ragu Traditional, reminds me of my childhood. MMmmm MMmmm Good!!
Here is a coupon for Ragu.... ViveMejor - Ragu. Enjoy!!

Yard Sale Advertising.....


We are having a Yard Sale this Saturday. Now, I could just rely on a sign like the one above to try to drive some customers in. Nope, I decided to advertise with GaragesalesTracker.com to bring in more customers than ever before. It is simple to do and free for a limited time!


One thing I loved about writing the ad for Garagesalestracker.com is there is no limit to the words you can use. You can even post pictures!!

Kellogg's Frosted Mini-Wheats Review.....


We were sent a package of Kellog's Frosted Mini Wheats to review. While my DH is a huge fan, we thought we would have my DD try it. My kids love Cheerios, Frosted Flakes and Corn Flakes. I thought she may love this cereal too.


She was happy to try it......


But she did not like it. Sorry Kellog's. DD says Frosted Mini-Wheats are not kid friendly. Her dad was happy to eat the rest of that bowl though and he says it is dad friendly!

Sinupret Syrup for Kids Review.....


I received a bottle of Sinupret Syrup for Kids to sample along with a small teddy bear for the kids. Sinupret Syrup for Kids is a natural plant -based product. It promotes healthy drainage in the upper respiratory tract, improves airflow in the nose and supports healthy mucous clearance from the nose and sinuses. Since I have a child who can not take over the counter cold medicine, I am always looking for a natural product that will help relieve some of his symptoms. I had not had much luck so far.


Last week my son had some signs of cold/allergy/asthma issues. SO... I gave this product a shot. Let me tell you... I Love It!!! He no longer show any signs of last weeks cold issues. This is a product that will always be stocked at my house! His dosage was very small but boy did this stuff work!! I would highly suggest trying this.


For those with small children, this would be great for a cold since the academy of pediatrics no longer advises giving cold medicine to young children.


You can go here.... Welcome to Bionorica® to get more technical info. Also if you use coupon code Sinupret09, you can get $4.00 off a 3.38 oz bottle.

These winners will have 48 hours to contact me. If I do not hear from them, I will pick a new winner. Thanks to all that entered!!

An ironic thing happened. These were not all the 1st numbers that were selected. The first number that was selected was someone who left a comment saying they would love to win but they are sure they will not cause they never win anything. Wouldn't that be great to reward someone a prize when they rarely win something! BUT... they did not leave an email address so they were disqualified. Maybe she does win things but does not know it because she forgets to leave an email address.

Please watch for more give aways and reviews coming next week!!
