Hey folks!! Just wanted to drop a quick blog about some of the frugalicious things I have been doing. It's been a busy couple of weeks, but I still managed to be frugal!! Here's a list of things. I know I probably forgot a  few, but I'm still proud of my list!!

  • Dropped off clothes in the donation bins
  • Gave away items on Freecycle
  • Combined all errands and limited driving as much as possible
  • Potlucked, especially for the holiday
  • Cooked and ate leftovers
  • Gave away lots of coupons
  • Skipped excess shopping and wore or used things we had
  • Used recyclable bags when I did shop
  • Recycled the plastic grocery bags at Kroger (they all take them)
  • Substituted ingredients and used what we had in the cupboard/frig
  • Changed the furnace filters
  • Got gas for the lowest in the city (checked Gas Buddy before filling up)
  • Skipped the bottled water and drank tap
  • Donated a huge bag of shredded paper to a cat shelter
  • Donated toiletries (I got for FREE) to a local Family Resource Center

Free Sample: Aloe King Aloe Vera Gel!!

What a great natural freebie!! Hurry to request your sample of Aloe King Aloe Vera Gel!! 

You can choose to get the regular Aloe Vera Gel or the Aloe Vera Gel with Tea Tree Oil!! I love Tea Tree Oil, so you can guess which one I picked!!

Once you submit, just ignore and close out the pop up screen!! You should receive your sample with a couple of weeks!!

Edited to add...
Benefits of Aloe Vera Gel: It has soothing properties, so you can use it on burns, scratches and itch/bites. It's a moisturizer for the skin and you can use it in your hair. In my experience, it's been a great aid in detangling hair. It can also be used to ease dental gum pain, like a natural version of Anbesol.

Frugalicious Reviews: Cleaning Packs

Just wanted to do a review of some products I received. I love getting free stuff, so I was happy to try out two products someone generously gave me!! Those cleaning packs have been getting quite a buzz lately. They seem to be the best thing in cleaning agents since forever!! The idea is to have a concentrated, compact gel pack that will clean your laundry and your dishes, making them good as new!! So, let's start with the bad news...
All(r) Mighty Pacs (RANT)
I received the free clear pacs and as far as I'm concerned, they might as well have been filled with water. I give them a thumbs DOWN!! Throwing them into the machine is definitely more convenient than measuring out messy liquids or powders, but the end result was not the same as my normal detergent. The clothes did not seem to be as clean as usual. Being the skeptic I am sometimes, I even threw in two pacs, since my load was a little larger...I had to wash them a second time...I used my trusty Tide.
They may have to go to Freecycle. Maybe they will work better for someone else.
Cascade Gel Packs (RAVE)
My friend gave me these because she doesn't have a dishwasher. I am so grateful to have received these. They are easy to use and during the wash, it filled the entire main floor with the freshest smell!! Lovely!! When I opened the door, the dishes were sparkling!! I know we've seen commercials when products claim a sparkling clean, but you see dull on a regular basis. This was not the case. The dishes really were sparkling!! I can't remember the last time I didn't see spots!! I LOVE this product!! I'll be sure to look for coupons for this one, but in the mean time, I'll just use the several freebies I was given!! Thumbs up all the way!!
