June Homemaking Favorites!

on July 6, 2017 by Jami Balmet 8 comments

I’ve started a new monthly feature over on my YouTube Channel: My monthly favorites

I come across so many fun things throughout the month (and love sharing resources) so I decided to start a monthly favorites video. Here’s my five favorites for June 2017! 

Watch the Video

You can watch the full video here, and then make sure to come over and subscribe to my YouTube channel so you don’t miss any new videos!

They are five random favorites but I can’t wait to share them with you. 

1) Garden of Life Meal Replacement

We’ve tried both the chocolate and vanilla and the vanilla is definitely our favorite! Jason likes the chocolate as a nice change sometimes but I think the vanilla has a much better flavor. 

It took a little getting used to at first, but now I’m hooked and usually have about one smoothie per day (usually for lunch). This smoothie mix not only has protein, but also an enzyme blend, a prebiotic blend, a probiotic blend, and more. Check out these ingredients –  AMAZING!!

Where to buy:

2) Glass Pioneer Woman Mason Jar

Speaking of smoothies, our absolute favorite way to drink our smoothies is with our $6 Pioneer Woman Mason Jars. They are all glass and even come with a lid and straw – for under $6! 

If you purchase them in-store at your local Walmart, you can purchase them one at a time, or buy a four pack online. I got mine in store but loved them so much we ended up with four of them anyway. 

3) Schmidt’s Natural Deodorant

I have long been on a search for a natural deodorant that works!! I’ve never found one that I like well enough to recommend, until now! I am very happy with the ingredients in Schmidt’s natural deodorant and it seems to work really really well. I’ve been using it for about 2 months now and I love it. 

I’ve tried the Rose & Vanilla and the Ylang Ylang & Calendula and have loved both. It comes in a regular deodorant stick or a jar. 

Where to buy:

4) Auromere Herbal Toothpaste

We’ve tried close to a dozen natural toothpastes before. And while we’ve found some that we like, the Auromere brand has been our favorite so far! Our favorite flavor is Fresh mint but they have several different ones you can try. 

I like it because it’s all natural ingredients, includes an herbal blend, and none of the junk in most toothpastes….plus it has a great taste! 

Where to buy:

5) NOW BetterStevia flavors

We’ve used stevia for years to sweeten our morning coffee. But I was searching for a stevia based coffee creamer of some sorts for a nice difference and came across these liquid flavored stevias. I ordered one to try and we’ve been hooked ever since! They have a bunch of flavors. We own: Hazelnut, English toffee, dark chocolate, pomegranate blueberry, and cinnamon vanilla. 

Where to buy:

  1. I love the Pioneer Woman glass mason jars! I have had mine for several months and I will warn you, the blue/green tinting on mine is coming off. It doesn’t negatively effect the glass at all, but I liked the blue color, so it was a bit disappointing. Love the video with your finds!

    • Oh weird!! We’ve had our original blue green one for several months as well and got the other three more recently. Ours hasn’t rubbed off it, hopefully it won’t!! Still a great jar though πŸ™‚

    • I bought one when they first came out.
      There was a recall on them soon after, because the color was painted on the outside of clear glass and washing/scratching off. The new ones are colored glass, so no issues with color coming off.

  2. I just discovered the Schmidts deodorant about a month ago and love it too! Ours is from Walmart and we paid half the price you mentioned! πŸ˜€

  3. I cannot wait to try that liquid Stevia! Thanks for sharing them πŸ™‚ I am always looking for new and yummy stevia drinks!! My husband & I have tried and loved Zevia, True Lime Packets and the Bai drinks….all are pretty yummy. Also…I wanted to let you know what an encouragement you are to wives and mamas everywhere. I found your podcast a few months ago and have binge listened to get caught up. You are definitely in my top 3 favorite podcasts!!
