Ahhhhhh!/ Works For Me Wednesday
The early morning is rapidly becoming my favorite time of day.
I got up this morning at 6:40.
Kid one is out the door, fed and happy, at 7:25.
I get kids 2 and 3 up at 7:30 and they are fed, happy and out the door by 8:15.
Then, I take a breath and check over the headlines in my "baby paper"- USA Today. We get it every day delivered and I love it. Nice little bite sized pieces of news.
Then, I check out the county section of the local paper.
I get a load of laundry in and get dinner prep started (tonight's dinner is in the crockpot already!)
Now, I get to sit back and relax for a bit, and enjoy having the house all to myself.
And now, it's WORKS FOR ME WEDNESDAY- BRAND LOYAL EDITION
I had to really think on this- I guess I am not that brand loyal!
But here's a few things I always buy or use:
TIVO Love, love, love my TIVO. I would marry it and have its little TIVOlets if I could. It has literally changed the way we watch television. What you want to see is always on, it is user friendly and intuitive and you never miss a show when you use a season pass. Brilliant!
Paper products at BJs- in particular, Charmin Ultra and Bounty Ultra. Both inexpensive versions of a good, solid brand. The only paper towel that is worth buying is Bounty.
Scent free products- My daughter has eczema, so we have to be very careful what detergents we use. I like All Free and Clear the best for laundry and I use Bounce scent free dryer sheets. Once I got used to having scent free clothes, I find myself driven nuts by scented laundry. It is completely overwhelming to me plus, I can't smell my children! Adolph's Meat Loaf mix- nothing else so far has even come close.
