GIVEAWAY: Jo-Sha Wipes - for Yoga Mats and more! 2 Winners! -CLOSED-


Stinky yoga mats are the worst! Just ask my husband! He begs me to put away my mat after my Bikram yoga classes! lol! Well, I have a new solution; Jo-Sha wipes! With Jo-Sha wipes, not only does my mat turn from disgusting to smelling divine, but the surface is also cleaned nicely. Made with natural ingredients including wonderful smelling essential oils, these wipes naturally disinfect. Jo-Sha wipes can be used to wipe off your mat, workout equipment, your hands and feet (I love the tingle on my feet with the peppermint), and any other surface you want to help boost your mood. When I got these, I wiped down several surfaces in my home. So pleasant! It's nice to know they are safe for you and most surfaces you apply it to.

"Jo-Sha wipes contain no alcohol or harsh chemicals, so they won't dry out skin or other surfaces and will actually preserve the life of your equipment. Jo-Sha wipes dry quickly and evaporate completely, leaving no slippery residue."

I loved the scents I was given to try; eucalyptus, peppermint, tea tree, and tangerine. Lavendar is also available. I can honestly say I loved them all, but have a tie between eucalyptus and peppermint. It was so nice to be in my yoga class and put my face next to my mat and have a nice hint of amazing! But don't use it right after class in Bikram yoga; people are in savasana/ final resting pose for quite a while. I made this mistake. I was so excited to use these I wasn't thinking! Opps! ;) Other yoga classes after coming out of savasana should be great! I now take my mat home after Bikram yoga and wipe off both sides. Sweet relief! I use about 1-2 wipes each time. The wipes are very soft so you don't have to worry about scratching any sensitive surfaces.

Jo-Sha wipes are so easy to tote around. I like the idea of using these for my daily workouts or when I am traveling. These would be great for rented mats, a trip to the gym, freshening up after spa treatments etc. They help to "evoke a sense of calm and centering to the body and mind." Smelling these scents in class help me to feel more positive, helping to eliminate those feelings of "I can't." It also mentions on the Jo-Sha website that these wipes can be used in cars. I haven't done that yet, but will! As a mom I could definetly use some help to calm and center myself in the car! ;)

I love the scents you listed that they have. That smells so calming, soothing, and just plain good. Love it. I also learned on the site that they are sold in a store in Cabot, AR. I have a bro in law and his family who live there and can get me some. Lol.

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."

The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!

If you have access to an apricot tree I highly suggest making fruit leather.  This was my first time attempting any kind of dried fruit and it turned out heavenly!

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)

Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…
