Rubbermaid, My Hero!

I have been looking for something like this for YEARS!  Laundry baskets that can stack?  YES, PLEASE!!!  While in the big city last week (Des Moines) I decided to hit up a store I rarely get to shop at and pick up a couple laundry baskets.  With seven of us I can't ever have enough of them.  My children's rooms eat two to three a week and that means that I rarely have any in the laundry room when I need them.  Much to my excitement I found these Stack 'n Sort Laundry Baskets. 
 I am a prime example of a non-impulse shopper and so it took me about 20 minutes to convince myself to buy them, but I am SO happy I did!  I think I could use one or two more and if I can find them cheap enough, absolutely will pick them up.  So yes, for today, Rubbermaid, You are my hero.  I have had the three sectioned sorters on wheels and when you have two, they take up half the laundry room.  Then since they're on wheels the kiddos want to "ride" ride them and while they're great, they're only useful IN the laundry room.  These, well they're the WHOLE kit and caboodle.  I can use them ANYWHERE, oh, oh, they'll be great in the camper too.
I paid for them, I'm not getting anything for writing this.  I'm just too excited not to share the greatness of these baskets and showing my true colors as a wife, mom, housekeeper and unpaid maid.  ;0)  Today Rubbermaid is my hero, who knows what to expect for tomorrow, I am heading to the grocery store today so the possibilities are endless!
Happy Monday y'all!!

Do You?

Do you do any of these things routinely - laundry, wash dishes, clean your bathroom, dust, wash windows, detail your car?  How about shower, wash your hair, bath kiddos, shave, wash your face, brush your teeth, wash your hands or use any lotion?
Do you deal with any health issues like eczema, psoriasis, acne, gingivitis, allergies, asthma, dry skin, arthritis, achy joints or back?
Do you find amazing cleaning, personal care products or vitamins and are excitedly tell your friends about them?
These are things I do regularly, those health issues were ones I or my family members dealt with daily.  Would you like to get paid for doing these things, while healing and preventing these health issues?  You can.
Freedom in Health and Wellness is in your control, within your reach.  Switch stores today and have the health and wellness you've always dreamed of.  Tell a friend and help them switch stores and you will earn $25-$100, just like that.
I believe in this, I believe in you.  Join my team and we'll be Finding Freedom together!

Did You Know

Did you know that the air quality in your home is five to seven times worse than outside?
Did you know that clearing you home of the toxin load can help you lose weight? (Yes, it slows down you metabolism!)
Did you know that it is not only cleaners but also bathroom products, laundry detergent and even fabric sheets that have chemicals that lead to cancer, allergies, skin issues and other illnesses?
Did you know that there is more than 30 different names for Formaldehyde that manufacturers use to “mask” what is in their products?
Did you know that Tide is the number one cause of eczema?
Did you know that in a manufacturing plant where detergent is bottled if there is a spill they have to evacuate?
Try clearing out your home!
Are you using Cascade in your dishwasher, we have Diamond Brite.  Try it for a month and see the difference with none of the chemicals and toxins.
What shampoo are you using? Pantene, Suave, Herbal Essences, Nioxin, Aveda? Try Affinia or Sei Bella and feel good knowing that you aren’t massaging toxins into your scalp every morning.
What about Pledge? Spray cleaners like this one are believed to cause some skin cancers.
Johnson & Johnson, everyone knows those baby baths, lotions and shampoos, but while it smells great many children products are tainted with Formaldehyde, which causes cancer and leukemia.
What do you use on your floor? Swiffer? Did you know that the cleaners used on your floor come into contact with the people and animals of your house constantly? Don’t let your family get sick, try Tough and Tender instead.
Are you using Resolve on stains? Why not try our non-caustic options.
Are you using Crest to brush? That tingly feeling isn’t actually making you any healthier.
CoverGirl or Revlon? Did you realize that using these and other common make-up brands means you’re rubbing chemicals directly on to the most porous part of your body?
Did you know that families that take a “good” vitamin could reduce their risk for cancer, allergies (yes, even allergies), heart disease, leukemia, obesity, arthritis and ADHD…the list goes on and on!  If you’re taking Gummies, One A Day, Centrium or a generic version you body is unable to absorb the nutrients. Try Vitality for a month and feel the difference!
Do everything in your power to minimize your family’s risk!!
What don’t the labels tell?
Label information is directed at “acute” or immediate effects only. You are not given information about “chronic” or long-term hazards of chemical products, such as cancer or birth defects. Think about how many products in your home have a “Keep out of reach of children” warning on them. If they are harmful, then we should seriously consider using them. There are other concerns about labels as well.  Some products contain ingredients that have not been officially recognized by the federal government as hazardous, but yet are still cause for concern. “inert” ingredients are chemicals added as “carriers” for the active ingredients in cleaners and pesticides.  Only a percentage of the inert ingredients are required on the label, not their identity. Some inert ingredients are hazardous.
There is not standardized list of chemical names.  Many chemicals have numerous trade and/or scientific names. This makes it hard for you to compare products.  Antidotes listed on the label may be incomplete, out-of-date or even dangerously wrong.  According to a 1984 report by the National Academy of Sciences, less than 2 percent of all new and existing chemicals have been tested sufficiently to allow a complete health hazard assessment.  Also, many labels do not tell you how to dispose of a product safely. The use of the term “non-toxic” is for advertising only.  It has no regulatory definition by the federal government.

Why Switch Stores?
To can guarantee a safer home. The examples above are just a FEW to show how we have to take charge of our family’s health and homes.  Switching stores is the first step to making a great life for yourself and your family!  Do you know anyone who…has kids, isn’t a fan of Wal-Mart, makes the big trek to health food stores, has allergies, asthma, cancer, skin issues, bloody noses, eczema, acne, arthritis (to name a few things we “live with” because doctors say there’s only so much we can do to “help”) or wants to live life healthy?

Takin' Five on Friday - Afraid

Got five minutes? Let’s write. Let’s finger paint with words –>{click to tweet}.
Let’s just write and not worry if it’s just right or not. Here’s how to play along:

1. Write for 5 minutes flat for pure unedited love of the written word.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in {you can grab the button code in my blog footer}
3. Go leave some comment props for the five minute artist who linked up before you {and if you love us, consider turning off word verification for the day to make it easier for folks to say howdy}
It’s a great way to catch your breath at the end of a long week.
When I saw the post in my email this morning, what did I do/think you wonder.  I ignored it.  Huh, fear?  Afraid of who?  Afraid of what?  Okay, seriously, I'm a ostrich with my head in the sand.
And here is what literally just smacked me up side 'da head!

Holley and Lisa Jo, I thank you.  Here's what I just figured out.  As soon as Holley started talking about God sized dreams I quit reading her emails.  They showed up in my inbox right on schedule and they have stayed there.  Why?  I don't know, ahem didn't know, until five minutes ago.
Here's what I'm afraid of.  Being "seen".
What's my God sized dream?  Oh, it's a doozy, but if I acknowledge it, then it becomes real and I have to face it.  So, let me run scared, NOW!!!!
What's my daily desire?  Godly love, peace and contentment within the walls of this house.  Where does that start?  With me.  How's it going?  Hah, yeah, I'll let you know tomorrow.
What do I aspire to?  Sharing my Health and Wellness company with everyone I interact with.  Do I do it?  Nope.  Too afraid to share it, even though the impact is priceless.
Being successful, being seen, putting myself out there.  It scares me silly.  For years my family drilled into me that I wasn't good enough, wouldn't be good enough, couldn't be good enough.  So much so that I'm actually scared to try to be.

WOW!!   Thank you Lisa Jo for helping me realize what wall I had hit.  I knew it was there didn't have a clue how to get out of this invisible box.  I have been dealing with family drama and knew it was bogging me down.  I just never knew how much it still tied me in place.
I deserve to acknowledge my God Sized Dream, big and scary as it may be.  Godly love, peace and contentment, well, that's ours for the enjoying.   To build a WAHM business and help the women, men and children that God places in my path to achieve health, wellness and freedom?  That's not just for me, that's for all you others out there too that deserve all that amazing stuff too.
This blog?  Well, I should come more regularly and capture these things.  These moments, these thoughts, this is the stuff my life is made of.  My faith-steps and foot-prints.  Why be afraid of myself here.  This is my safe space.  The space that if God sends someone over, there is a reason.
I am enough.  Enough to face the moments of being afraid and knowing that God is right here too, wanting me to stretch, dream, share and go, relying on Him as my guide.  Nothing to be afraid of.
