May Recommendations

Yo yo yo MTV used to rap. I don't know if they have any music anymore, do they? Some things to add to your list if you're so inclined:

1. Prolong the life of your celery by wrapping it in tin foil. I don't know the science behind this but it lasts a crazy long time. Trust me. 
2. Bee's Wrap - This is the shit. It acts like saran wrap but you wash it in cold water and re-use it.  It's a little pricey but being a good citizen of the earth is not free. Consider it an investment in the environment. Thanks to my friend Michelle for the recommendation when I shared my Reducing and Reusing post. I am a firm believer in sharing the word about good products/hacks/ways to live (hence this monthly recommendation post) and I love when people share stuff with me. 

3. Wool dryer balls - And another recommendation I got in response to that post, from Patty. These are awesome. I have given up liquid fabric softener and I just scent these with essential oils. 

4. Nordic Ware for baking - Everything I have is Nordic Ware at home and at the shore. It wears beautifully and cleans up in a cinch. This is a before and after with no soaking and minimal scrubbing and this shit was dried on there. Sometimes you can find it at Marshalls or HomeGoods. I think Target has it and I know Amazon has it. Baking sheets, cupcake pans, and loaf pans are the bomb. Is that still said? 
5. A quick and easy lunch: whole wheat or multigrain tortilla topped with peanut butter and honey and sliced banana. 

I'm linking up with Lauren & Bre for their Add it to my list linkup, which they're doing the last Tuesday of every month. 

Did you miss the weekend that was? Find it here

What have you been using or doing lately that I might want to add to my list?

  4. Oooh, I'm intrigued by Bee's Wrap. And the celery tip is great, too. Andrew needs celery leaves for making pickles and I can never eat all the celery he buys while it's still crisp. I'll have to try it out! Thanks for linking up.

  5. The dryer balls and the Nordic ware ❣️ I use vinegar , baking soda, and blue dawn dish detergent for most of my cleaning. Straight vinegar for pet friendly weed killer. I will definitely do the celery in ton foil. Have a lovely day back ❣️
    Love. Your. Momma.

  7. I should try that with celery. I only ever buy it for one thing and then it tends to go bad.

  8. Great idea with celery!! We tend to go through ours relatively quickly anyway because it is one of the green vegetables my kids will actually eat, but still good to know!! We have homemade wool dryer balls - my MIL does a lot of felting with wool. They are GREAT.

  9. We definitely need new pans soon, I'll have to keep an eye out for the Nordic ware for you.

  11. The tin foil for celery is genius! Totally trying that. Nothing makes me sadder than floppy celery. And I just added the Nordic Ware to my list of kitchen stuff I need to get. Our baking sheets look like they are 100 years old but they are really only two or three. They get gross so fast.

  12. I've tried Mighty Nest box 2 months now (it's a natural living box I guess? You get one item for $10 a month) and I got the bees wrap for one and dryer balls in another month. I love both!

  13. I am definitely wanting to get some of that Bee's Wrap. Those dryer balls sound interesting. Can they replace the use of dryer sheets? I feel pretty wasteful when I use those...

  14. I do that with my celery and green onions as well. its like magic! Bee's wrap is on my list. As for he dryer balls, how do you do the essential oil and how often? Are they loud? Thanks in advance!

  15. I can't wait to try your foil celery trick!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I didn't know the celery trick. Tinfoil also helps ripen avocados in a pinch.
    I don't know what planet I've been on but about a month ago, I tried banana and peanut butter for the first time and OMG. Bomb. I still say that. Lol Perhaps we're dating ourselves but wgaf. :)

  17. I got the wool dryer balls AND the Bees Wrap both from my Mighty Nest subscription box... if you havent tried it, you should. I've gotten some great products.

  18. Good to know about prolonging the life of celery. A full stock in the fridge usually doesn't' get used fully other than for recipes. The Bees Wrap sounds like a great investment too. Both of these make me think of the fact that my Granny used to wash and reuse all of her foil and plastic wrap. Just a tidbit everyone used to joke about because she was one of a kind.

  19. My mom was just telling me about nordic ware. I need to get some.

  20. Does the tin foil trick work with other produce?! Every once in a while I get too optimistic when buying veggies and end up in a mad rush to eat a whole bunch of pepper or something before it goes bad. And that bees wrap is GENIUS!

  21. I really want to try that Bee's Wrap! Slooooowly trying to move towards more eco-friendly tendencies.

    I do the PB&B&H on waffles for breakfast...so good, especially with a dash of cinnamon.

  22. I keep reading about this bee wrap! Perhaps I just need to pull the trigger! Love love my dryer balls, but don't love when I am shaking out a towel or sheet and they go flying across the room :D

  23. I'm going to have to try that bee's wrap. I hate plastic wrap - it's always a mess.

    ReplyDelete
  24. We don't use anything in the dryer because of my sensitive skinned kids, but I just added those dryer balls to my cart! Do you use them all at once? How many drops of oil per ball?

    ReplyDelete
