I’m Back…..and Saving Money on Stuff We Use

Well I have to apologize for my hiatus, my health and family comes first which means blogs are somewhere lower on the importance meter.  I am back and I am excited to continue sharing our journey of everything Homespun.  I know we talked about Grove before, but I want to share a few things about it again just in case you haven’t tried it.

I know my friend, Irene wants to use natural cleaning products that are great for the planet including her own family.  She loves vinegar cleaning.  The problem is her hubby is not such a fan of the smell. Not to fear…introducing Aunt Fannies – they offer a vinegar based cleaner that smells so fabulous.  I thought the pest control line like the fruit fly trap was genius. So I ordered both the cleaner in Mandarin scent and the fruit fly trap, 5 star reviews and I am excited to share my experience with y’all.  See below for some highlights on Aunt Fannies.

An easy, healthy clean for kitchen, bath & more.

Safe for food contact surfaces including counters and high chair trays

Commercial-grade cleaning power makes fast work of tough jobs
Made with non-toxic microbiomic ingredients.
No chemical smell.
Never tested on animals.


Now for my other realization: Prices

I was spending at least $1 to $1.50 or more for the products I ordered when I went to Target to buy, not to mention it’s Target ( go in for one thing come out $50 later) For the cost savings alone it was worth it to go back to Grove and by resigning up I got a cute apron, and a ton of cleaning products for free.
