Winter Wash with Purex #Cartwheel #Coupon
What are some of your New Year’s Eve traditions? Mine include cooking black eye peas, collard greens and frying chicken wings. I also watch the Twilight Zone marathon, trying not to fall asleep during the wee hours because that’s when the best episodes air. Kneeling in prayer with hubby and sons then having one of them enter the front door with money in their pocket is another tradition.
I also make sure that there aren’t any dirty clothes in the house so I have to start washing early in the day. In addition to washing clothes, I also take down curtains and clean the sofa throws. It’s like doing a mini Spring clean so it’s important that I have enough detergent on hand.
Purex is one of my favorite brands of detergents and thanks to Target’s #Cartwheel #coupon, I was able to save 25% and you know I am all about saving! Sharing is caring, so here’s a gift to you; from now through December 27th, you can use this coupon to get the same 25% off any Purex detergent at Target, hurry and download the #coupon today, then share this post with a friend.
MERRY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A CLEAN NEW YEAR!!!
What a way to start the New Year, this post garnered me

“What I don’t know would make a whole new world”
That was what my grandmother would say whenever she learned something new, and considering she lived to be 98, it was usually only on rare occasions. However, I’m sure she would have said it, just as I did when I received a 32 oz jar of Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil.
Two weeks ago I had no idea they were over 100 different ways in which to use Virgin Coconut Oil, and it blows my mind just thinking about a few of those amazing uses. Virgin Coconut Oil can be used as a health and beauty product, in cooking, baking, making sauces, dips or simply adding to a hot beverage or mixed in a green smoothie. I am in no way making any health claims but if you want to know more about the benefits of coconut oil, check out this website http://coconutoil.com/
One morning for breakfast, I decided to try it in a green smoothie so I added a tablespoon of Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil to a handful of kale, ½ a banana, and a teaspoon of flax seeds, when mixed with water it became a tasty tropical coconut flavored smoothie.
Hubby and I now use it every morning in our smoothies and although we may switch up on the fruits we use, it’s never without the Coconut Oil.
Mother’s Day was a great time to try it as a baking ingredient. I used a box of muffin mix and substituted the vegetable oil with Virgin Coconut Oil using the same measurements, however, it needed to be melted first, so a few seconds in the microwave did the trick.
I allowed the milk and eggs to come to room temperature before adding the Virgin Coconut Oil so that it wouldn’t solidify in the cold batter. My hubby and mini men ate them all except two which I had to hide in order to have them later!
I also use it as a butter replacement on my morning toast.
Mother’s Day weekend was also a good time to try and make a natural body scrub. It was very easy to make using two cups of Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil blended with a cup of white sugar and 5 drops of Essential Oil. This mixture made 3 small jars of the body scrub, which is way more than enough for me, so I will probably be gifting a jar to a friend and then saving one for Father’s Day as a gift to hubby.
Like I said, there are over 100 ways in which to use Virgin Coconut Oil so it will definitely be a staple in our house both in the kitchen and the bathroom.
How about you, what are some ways in which you would or have used Virgin Coconut Oil?
