Review Wednesday holiday roundup

For at least the past five years (maybe a little longer) Curt and I along with our families have stopped giving each other Christmas presents.

We have decided we all have what we need. This helps to ease the stress of getting each other gifts.

So instead of giving to others we give to charity.

Curt and I still give each other small gifts, aka stocking stuffers.

Over the past two years GFG! has occasionally had Review Wednesday, where I review items for myself and my readers.

Many of the items I have reviewed would make great stocking stuffers.

I am going to do a quick review on the Fuller Brush, which would fit in a  stocking just great, before I summarize items in past Review Wednesdays.

A friend gave me Fuller Brush’s Veggie Brush as a gift. Let me just say this thing is amazing. It cleans carrots and potatoes strongly and quickly.

It’s amazing how much dirt comes running into the sink compared to other brushes I have used to scrub my root vegetables.

I got this as a gift but the cost is reasonable at $7.99.

This would be a great stocking stuffer and it is … Continue reading

Readers are walking, recycling, biking, composting …

Wow, what awesome participation in last week’s Comment Contest Tuesday and a great celebration of Earth Day.

Like myself, many of my readers celebrate Earth Day every day … as it should be.

Thank you to everyone who participated. You all shared some great things. Thank you.

And the winner is … Gail!

She will be receiving a pack (pictured at the right) of Washable Reusable Produce bags.

One of the things she mentioned was that at work there aren’t recycling containers, so she uses a paper bag, which always seems to be around the office and fills it with recycling and takes it home to put in her home recycling container.

The other participants shared some great tips below:

Review Wednesday: Reusable Washable Nylon Produce bags

In honor of Earth Day next week (Monday, April 22) I wanted to review Reusable Washable Nylon Produce bags.

Friend and GFG! reader, Nicole, sent me some as a gift, which is totally awesome.

If anyone ever wants to send me cool items whether as a gift or to review or both I will gladly accept. Remember the onion goggles given to me by friend and GFG! reader Monica?

And come back next Tuesday for a Comment Contest Tuesday and a chance to win your own set of Washable Produce Bags.

The bags are light and can easily be thrown in my reusable grocery bags.

The bags are see through and you can wash your fruits and veggies while they are still in the bag, which works out great.

The bags themselves are easy to clean with a little soap and water and they dry quickly.

One of my bags in the batch my friend sent didn’t have a whole cut for the drawstring. But that’s the only negative I have found. After I realized I couldn’t cinch one of my bags I came home and cut a little slit in the bag and now I can … Continue reading
