Works For Me Wednesday!

It's been quite a while since I did a WFMW post. Head over to Rocks in My Dryer for more great tips;)
I have 2 tips to share. First off I really like Mr. Clean Sponges. Have you tried them? Well this past month I found the ones I bought and put away in my really organized (so much so that I couldn't find them) laundry room. I forgot I had so much new storage! Anyway, I bought the Dollar Tree store brand (not Mr. Clean) and guess what? They work great and at a 1/3 of the cost. Can I get a Yippee!!?!!



Tip #2~ These made Superman's weekend. It's nice to see a boyish smile on your husband's face and all for $3.

We've been trying to get away from using plastic for quite awhile, but held on to our green tumbler until now. They're a bit hefty, but I needed to start weight training!



He likes to fill them up with 1 liter of sweet tea. Where I would rather have a decaf coffee drink. Yes, I did say 1 Liter! We like big glasses for iced tea and lemon water.


My coffee shake ,cooler etc. recipe is:

1 1/2 cups raw whole milk

1 Tb decaff instant coffee (don't scream my furry friends!)

1 tea cocoa powder

stevia to taste

ice cubes to desired consistency

Blend it up and pop it in your cup! I also put a dollop of whip cream on.


Superman's tea:

1 gallon freshly brewed green tea

3/4 cup Sucanat with honey.

This usually last him all weekend. During the week, he's a water man.

So what works for you?

Oh my, that coffee drink looks delicious. My hubby loves sweet tea too. He doesn't drink much in the winter---because I don't make it often, but in the summer, he goes through it.

Thanks for visiting our blog. I always enjoy "meeting" new people.
