Why I Outsource my Natural Deodorant Now

Raise your hand if you’re a mom of a toddler. Did you raise it and realize that you forgot to put deodorant on today? Yup, I do that more often than I dare to admit. But I am feeling much healthier about what I use to combat that stink these days. If you remember awhile back, like a real while back, I wrote a post on making your own natural deodorant, DIY Natural Deodorant. These days I don’t have time to make my own, but luckily I have found a product I can purchase that I really like. With a toddler and a full time job I have to choose my projects wisely. As much as I would like to make it myself, it’s a project that I have had to outsource. I will fully admit that before I went back to a natural deodorant I was using your typical antiperspirant, probably for the better; as a new mom I needed a little extra help keeping my appearance somewhat put together as I started a new job. I don’t run around any less than I did before but I don’t have to contend with a leaking chest and the occasional hot flash, so if my underarms sometime “glisten” I’m cool with it.

How I use Target's Cartwheel App & Ibotta to Save and Earn! Plus a Free Printable

How many of you like to get a good deal when grocery shopping? My guess is everyone! I love the idea of coupons but the coupons that we grew up with are just not practical anymore. I can remember the days when the coupons that came in the Sunday paper were actually useful. These days I can maybe find one or two that I will actually use but even then I have to purchase two or three of the item for the coupon to work. Way too much work and I end up spending more than I would have in the first place. I have found coupons and savings have turned digital. So if you have a smartphone you can still get some serious savings without having to clip coupons!
