Did you know that Walmart has a seasonal Beauty Box for just $5? Each season, they send out a new box filled with sample sizes of new beauty products. I was surprised at how many things were packed into this little box, it’s a great deal!
Inside the winter Walmart Beauty Box:
NSPA by Nirvana Spa Exotically Creamy Rich Body Butter
Pantene Pro-V Hairspray
Neutrogena Healthy Volume Mascara
St. Ives Blackhead Clearing Green Tea Scrub
Swisspers Leopard Print Cotton Swabs
Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Daily Moisturizer
Aveeno Absolutely Ageless Restorative Night Cream
Crest 3D White Brilliance Whitening System
Burt’s Bees Intensive Firming Serum
Vera Wang Embrace Eau De Toilette Spray
Goody Slideproof Soft Touch Silicone Elastics
I mean, who doesn’t need leopard print cotton swabs? 😉 My favorite is the body butter, it smells like vacation!
Have you tried beauty box subscriptions before? There are so many…Ipsy, Birchbox, Glossybox, Julep, etc. I liked this box because it’s by far the best value, and focused on skin care and hair care instead of makeup. Kind of a fun treat for yourself and a good way to try out new drugstore products without committing to buying a full-sized product.
I have used this trick for laundry stains for years now. I specifically remember scrubbing cherry flavored chapstick out of all my clothes in high school when I forgot to check the pockets before throwing my dirty clothes in the wash. (Please don’t do this, it’s an awful mess.)
But with this easy laundry stain hack, you can deal with stained clothing quickly, and cheaply! I especially love using this for kids clothes, that get grimy fast.
You will need two things:
1 bar of Fels-Naptha Laundry Soap
1 citrus produce bag
(look for the mesh bags that clementines or lemons come in)
Part One of the Summer Survival Series involved making a simple daily schedule. My intention with this was to give the kids a general sense of the day and set expectations, as well as eliminate the constant ask for playdates and snacks.
So now that we have our daily schedule, what happens when we’re having a hard time figuring out how to use up some of that free time? Let me introduce the boredom buster jar.
Summer Survival Series: Part Two
The boredom buster jar is a simple jar with activities written on popsicle sticks. I used this jar as a reward for chores completed, and/or good behavior and attitudes. If we had a great day, the kids got to pick out something from the jar to do. (idea originally found at While He Was Napping)
