Oat Meal Cinch

I love Tasty Tuesdays!!! I love trying new things and sharing my ideas with you!

This morning I thought I would change up my breakfast a little bit and mix my Vanilla Cinch with my oatmeal.

The best thing about adding Cinch to my meals would have to be that I eat smaller portions! Even though the portions are smaller, the portions of protein are a lot higher! Leaving me eating less and staying full!  This is an easy and delicious way to change up your breakfast! 

Pour the oatmeal into a bowl.

Add the appropriate amount of water and cook as directed!

Now comes the Cinch!

Add a half a scoop of Cinch and stir it well!

  Pour as much milk and desired!

Stir and enjoy! 


I have also tried this with a few other flavors!  Chocolate being one of them!


Have you tried mixing your Cinch with anything? How was it? I would love to try it!

Or do you have any suggestions on what you might want me to try and post about?

Happy Easter!!!

I hope everyone had a very happy Easter!

Bandon and I had 4 different houses that we had to stop by this Easter! First we went to his house for breakfast after church, then to my house for brunch, next we went to his aunts for dinner and last but not least we went to my aunts for desert. Between all of the running around and the joy we get from visiting our families we had an amazing Easter day!

Here is Brandon and I at my aunts house (our last stop of the day!)143.5

We had everything from Delicious food…105  To coloring Easter eggs. 119
To finding Easter baskets! I made this one for Brandon!!


We both love starbucks caramel fraps, so I decided to give him everything that he needed to make his own at home! I will tell you this, when you make it at home it comes out to be less than a dollar a drink!!! What a great deal!!

I filled all of the Easter eggs with these!! Yummy!!!


What did you do for Easter? do you have any family traditions that you would like to share?

60 Years!!!!

Another weekend has come and gone!

I can’t believe how fast the time is flying, Easter is next weekend!!!

This past weekend my mom and dad (From Parents Of A Dozen) hosted a surprise 60th anniversary party for my grandparents. My boyfriend (From Simplee Green) and I were the bait. My grandma came over to get her hair done and the her, myself, my boyfriend and my papa were in the basement for about a half hour. During that time, everyone that had been hiding in the bedrooms upstairs decorated the house and waited for us to finish. Need-less-to-say it was a great success!!

They couldn’t have been more surprised!!

We had balloons and decorations all over the place! Everyone had a great time!


You can’t have a party without cake, so number 8 made and decorated this cake with me!


Aren’t they just the sweetest couple you have every seen? lol


You can’t have cake without ice-cream!!!


Everyone had a great time, even all the way down to number 12!!!


Have you ever had or been to a surprise party?

Did everything go as planed or did they suspect something? :)

Please post a comment and I would love to hear all about it!!!

How To Get Clothes to Stay on Hangers!!

In my house everyone has their own day to do their laundry.  Mine is Monday!! The best way to start my week!

As I mentioned Here, I share a closet with my 2 younger sisters.  Sometimes we have a hard time keeping all of our shirts on the hangers, especially the shirts with wide neck lines.  They always seem like they are falling off the hanger.

A friend of mine told me about this little trick to help the clothes stay on the hanger and I thought that I would share it with you too!!!

All you need are hangers and rubber bands.  

Wrap the rubber bands around each side of the hanger a few times.


Now hang up your clothes and see what a difference it makes. The bag of rubber bands cost .49! You can’t find even one rubber hanger for that price!


Am I the only one having this problem?
Are you having a hard time keeping your clothes on your hangers?

Duct Tape Bows

I hope everyone had a great weekend.

My little sister (Number 8) went to a sleepover where they made these cute duct tape bows and I just had to share them with you!

She made all 4 of these herself. What fun!!! :)

They bought the tape from Walmart!


They used clips to put it in their hair.


If you don’t have clips, bobby pins work too!


Have you ever made anything out of duct tape?  If so I would love to see it!

Or maybe you have another fun activity that you have done. We always love to try new things!

Attention all bloggers!!!

Do you want FREE BASIC H?


I am a Shaklee Distributor! I like helping families get healthier, that is one major reason why I love my job.

Well, I need your help!

I am looking for bloggers that want to help my mission!

I will give you a FREE Basic H Sample to try and review on your blog. You can even host a giveaway on your blog and I will give your readers samples to try too!!!

I only have a limited amount of samples so please email me at bargainblondie@live.com with your name, your blog name, reasons why you want to try Basic H and why your readers would be interested and I will send out your sample!

If you already purchased Shaklee from me and want to do a review on your blog, I can giveaway Basic H samples to your readers too! 

Thanks so much in helping families get healthier in honor of Earth Day this year!!

This little 16 oz bottle creates an unbelievable 48 gallons of super-safe, really powerful, all purpose cleaner. We challenge you to use it up any time soon to clean everything from spilled milk, to bug residue on the window, to splattered spaghetti sauce.

2011 04 05_3205

Here are the directions on the Basic H (Organic Basic Household Cleaner) Bottle! You only need to use a little bit.

You only need to mix 1/4 teaspoon of Basic H to 16 oz. of water to make an All-Purpose Cleaner!

You only need 1-2 drops of Basic H in 16 oz. of water to make a streak-free window cleaner! (DO NOT ADD MORE THAN NEEDED!) I think it works best with THIS window cloth!

1 bottle of Basic H2 equals the cleaning uses of 5,824 bottles of 26 oz. Windex. WOW!!!! To make a gallon of Shaklee Window Cleaner, it would cost you less than a PENNY!!!

The degreaser will clean any amount of grease!

This bottle will clean almost everything in your whole house...

while being toxic-free, money saving and it actually works!

2011 04 05_3208

I really like these spray bottles!!! SO CUTE, clean, and fresh looking! 2011 04 05_3222

Clean Credentials



Doubly concentrated

Biodegradable Surfactants

Top 10 Reasons to use Basic H

1. Stop living in a toxic home

Some of the most questionable chemicals used regularly in household products are ammonia, chlorine bleach, phenol, butyl cellosolve, and formaldehyde—all of which can be found under your kitchen sink. Basic H2 is nontoxic and safe for your family.

2. Everything and the kitchen sink

Basic H2 cleans it all from kitchens and bathrooms to appliances, woodwork, mirrors, painted walls, and floors— it even does windows. So, toss those single-purpose cleaners like sink and tile cleaners. Mix ¼ teaspoon in 16 oz. of water in a Get Clean spray bottle for all purpose cleaning, and 2 drops in 16 oz. of water to clean windows.

3. Eliminate your ammonia-based window cleaner

Basic H2 cleans windows without streaking while being a great alternative to leading brands. Basic H2 window cleaner is equivalent in performance to Windex Original.

4. Removes the impossible

From lipstick on a linen napkin to crayons on a painted wall, full-strength Basic H2 comes to the rescue.

5. Great for cutting grease

Tough on greasy barbecue grills, ovens, and even oil spots on concrete. Mix 2 oz. per gallon of water for a super degreaser formula.

6. Does odd jobs

One tablespoon of Basic H2 in a bucket of hot water lifts off old wallpaper. One and a half teaspoons in a half gallon cleans sticky paintbrushes. Just soak for 24 hours and rinse with hot tap water.

7. Saves money

One 16 oz. bottle of Basic H2 diluted per label directions makes 214 bottles (28 oz.) of ready-to-use all-purpose cleaner.

8. Camping and traveling companion

Take along a small size of Basic H2 to keep clothes, dishes, and everything else clean. And you’ll help by keeping the great outdoors unpolluted.

9. Easy on the planet

Biodegradable and environmentally friendly, Basic H2 handles even hard-to-clean jobs without phosphates, borates, nitrates, or other stuff the planet doesn’t appreciate.

10. Less in the landfill

Basic H2 is super concentrated, so you’ll use fewer bottles of cleaning products throughout the year.

I know once you try it, you will really like it, like I did, and so many others!!!!
