Heya Aspiring Gurus!
I just went shopping this morning and I thought that I would share what I bought. This is real life for ya and all of these things were necessities. They are boring items, but every house has them. Learn how they earned my heart and entered into my home. In May, I will be starting a new Life Hack Series based on requests from all of you. I will be showing embarrassing Before pictures and take you on my organizing journey through haul and DIYs. The After photos will also be shared once a room is completed. When a room is completed, I will write an over-review post on the journey. I need to organize desperately, so turning this into a series will be fun. If you guys really love it, I will bring it back when I buy/move into a house. (This will be YEARS from now. Like 2 to 3 years away.) I will be starting with the Bathroom first. Based on room size and monthly expensive, I estimate that I will finish the bathroom in 3 months or less. So, it will be a long series. I will only have about 100 to 200 USD available for buying stuff to organize with. If you guys have ideas, share them! I will be sharing a color scheme and dream bathroom pictures with you guys later this month.
Now, onto the haul!
The Game of Life:
This game is so much fun to play! My dad beat me at it today, but he was a lawyer and I was a fashion designer. He made more money than I did! Tomorrow, I will beat him at it. Have you played this game? Next month, I will buy Monopoly and conquer! Games are fun and exciting, plus it is something different than always playing video games by myself.
Beneful Wet Dog Food Variety 12 Pack:
The dogs love Beneful and it is actually made with real food. I feel good splitting the can for supper as a special treat. I love knowing that it is the perfect size for Serena to have two meals. I give a wet food supper about once a week. They do not get it very often, because Serena has a lot of plaque. The dry food helps to scrap it away and too much wet food isn’t good for their teeth. It is a healthy meal for your dog over the other brown sludge options which are around the same price range. You don’t have to break the bank to give your dog good nutrition.
Angel Soft Toilet Paper:
Yep, this is the brand that my bum prefers. It is really soft and strong. It is also friendly on my budget. Every time I try something else, I always come back to this. Nothing else compares.
Glad Press’n Seal:
Nothing beats this food wrapper. It seals out air and keeps contents air tight. There are no spills and it is really easy to use. Other cheap wrappers are hard to use and I end up ruining it. This wrap is thicker and easier to wrap things in. You’ll know what I mean if you try it. It is a bit pricey, but honestly, it’s the only wrapper I can use successfully.
Swiffer Wet Jet Refill Liquid & Refill Pads:
I love my Wet Jet mop for cleaning my Kitchen and Bathroom. It is the best mop that is also pet friendly. It is easy for me to use, since I actually like cleaning the floors with this mop. I clean the floors once a week, more if it rains/sleets/snows. It is a bit pricey for the mop but worth the investment. The pads last me 12 weeks and the liquid lasts for about the same amount of time, depending on the amount of dirt and grime. That is 3 months of use for 12 USD. My kitchen and bathroom are also small too. I do live in an apartment.
Great Value Aluminum Foil:
Aluminum foil is a great versatile product. I use it with my pizza making mostly. I have used it in my hair for my dye jobs. The list could go on.
Great Value Fold Top Sandwich Bags
These were a buck and my dad and I use them as cheap poop bags for the doggies. Poop bags are expensive. I do not know why. It is so much cheaper to just use these. I put a few in my poop bag dispenser and I am good to go…er, they are good to go.
Duck Tape Original
It’s always good to have Duck Tape, at least that’s what my dad says!
Marketside Extra Large Supreme Pizza
This pizza is so yummy! Every time I go to Walmart, I always grab a box.
Scott Pro Heavy Duty Cleansing Wipes
These were on clearance for 1.50 USD. I bought these for my Dad, since he gets greasy from working on the car or checking the fluid levels. These wet ones he can keep in the car, specifically designed for car grease.
Equate Hand Soap
People are getting sick at work, so antibacterial hand soap is a must for me right now. This one doesn’t say what scent it is in, but I have tried similar products from this brand before and I know that I will like it.
Walmart is having a sale on this salt, 8lbs for 5.50 USD. This is a great price and there are multiple uses for Epsom Salts. My dad uses them to relieve his itchy skin and I use them to help my muscles relax after an exhausting workout or when I get sore from working out. These are unscented, so they are perfect to combine with scents or nothing at all for sensitive skin.
They were on sale, so I bought a package and ate half for breakfast. I love fruit.
Goody Clear Elastics
I’ve been looking forever for clear elastics and I have finally found them! I need them for a lot of hairstyles and now, I only need new bobby pins to go with them. They have small, medium, and large. I got the variety pack to try out and they would be good for different things like the ends of braids, ponies, and buns.
Yep, I am trying another BB cream. Hopefully, I like this better than the other one that I bought which I am almost out of. I have only swatched it and it seems to be the right color. I like the pointy tip and the color was swatched in the middle. You can tell that it is a bit more tan, but it just gives a natural sunkissed effect.
I also repurchased the Cetaphil Moisturizer since I was out of it. Well, that is it for today! I hope you have a nice Easter! Mine isn’t until next week.
