Soapbox Saturday - my favorites

Today I wanted to share a few recent loves.  You know how sometimes you find something you like so much that you really want to tell someone about it?  Yup.  That's what I'm talking about.  I haven't been paid to write about any of these things (though one of them was given to me for free).  I just really like all of them.  Here's my recent list.

1) Memory Foam Bath Mats.  Usually these are kind of pricey, but I found good sized ones at Costco for $13.  That's the same price as the regular Ikea bath mats we had that were starting to die.  So, we upgraded to Memory Foam and I am in love with them.  I've been giddy about them all week and my husband just laughs at me.

2) While I don't have any kids older than preschool age, I thought this might be of interest to those of you who do.  It seems like school fund raisers are almost always revolving around junk food or things you don't really want.  Jeannie from CA shared this with me in an email and I thought it was a really cool idea.  She's developed a healthy fundraising program called Gardens 4 Education.  Wouldn't this be fun to purchase in the spring?  You can read more about it HERE.

3) Dove Body Mists and Deodorant.  I am NOT a perfume girl.  The scents are just too strong and I can't handle them.  However, that doesn't mean I don't want to smell good.  The other day I noticed the Dove deodorant and the coordinating body mist.  Perfect.  I love the scent and the body mist isn't super heavy.  I like that I can use both and they match, instead of fighting each other.

4) Cliff Kid Snacks.  I was sent a pack of these in the mail.  I must confess, they are something that I already buy when they are at Costco.  They feel like treats, but have less sugar and more protein than the treats my kids try to sneak in.  I actually always hope they won't finish the whole thing because they are so good.  I like to help them out :)  The new Iced Oatmeal ones did not disappoint.

The fruit ropes are also great.  The shape is a billion times better than a fruit roll-up because my kids can eat them without the mess.

I hadn't ever tried these Crispy Rice Bars before.  These remind my of a healthy version of rice crispy treats.  They aren't crazy sweet though, which I liked.

That's all for now.  If you have any products you're loving right now, feel free to share them with us in the comment section.  Don't keep us in the dark!  

Thanks for dropping in.
