How I shop & soap nuts!

I just realized I haven’t been to the grocery store in at least 2 weeks! And guess what?  My house is full of food. I don’t need to go. How is that?

Well, I get produce from bountiful baskets.org, my milk is delivered by Boise Milk, I order odd things like wheat, produce, spices, etc from Azure Standard, everything else I make from scratch such as yogurt, bread, tortillas, granola(we use as cereal), fruit leather, pretzels, crackers, cookies, & all meals. I buy my wheat, oats, beans all in bulk through different sources usually Walton Feed or the church cannery. I buy butter, cheese. & nuts from Costco and I hate going there so I stock up when I go.  I also order herbs and few things like coconut flour(which I’m anxiously waiting to arrive any day) from Amazon.

I don’t know if you are interested in all this but I thought it was pretty cool that I didn’t have to go to the grocery store in so long and I intend to see how much longer I can go.  I don’t shop at a 20 different stores wasting gas and time.  When I can I shop the local markets and orchards to get great deals on produce as well.

Onto the next topic, Soap nuts! I just discovered this new product from Naturoli.  They have laundry detergent that is all natural(watch their movie on it how they are harvested on their website.)  It’s great for people with sensitive skin or if you just want to be more green. It has the lowest carbon footprint out there.  You use 1/2 tsp per load and you don’t need any bleach or softener. I have done 7 loads so far with it and am very impressed. My clothes are static free, very clean and so soft. Even my old towels!  I am not selling this nor am I endorsed by this company. I should be. I just really love this new product. I bought it 40% off which made it comparable to my old detergent I was buying at Costco.   Anything with less chemicals in my life is a great thing!
