Welcome to the first edition of Friday Faves where I’ll be sharing my favorite products and services of the moment with you that I’m sure you’ll love too (affiliate and product links provided for your convenience).
- Mrs. Meyers Automatic Dish Packs in Basil – I’ve tried many dishwasher pods but I must say hands down, this is my absolute fave!!! Not only is the Mrs. Meyers brand eco and pet friendly, they also smell delicious, especially this basil scent. When my dishwasher is running, my kitchen smells sooo good. And the best part is, the dish packs clean really well. I’m very impressed and highly recommend it.
- Nato Smart Mount – you may have seen the ads on Facebook or Instagram and wondered if they were legit. Well, let me tell you, they are! I’m constantly travelling in my car and use my phone’s GPS app all the time so having a dashboard cradle has always been important to me. I’ve gone through several and liked them well enough, but because they are constantly exposed to the sun, over time, the rubber starts to fail and lose their stickiness which causes the cradle to topple over – arrgh!! No more of that. The nato mount is stuck to the cockpit of the car with removeable tape and all you need to do is put the magnet sticker on your phone or phone case (inside or outside) and it automatically sticks to the mount. I’ve already added one to my dad’s car so I have a mount when I take him to his doctor’s appointments. I’m thinking of adding a mount to my kitchen and bathroom so I can watch videos or listen to podcasts while I’m doing dishes or cooking or getting ready. Best invention ever!
- Audible Membership – As I mentioned, I’m constantly travelling in my car visiting job sites and fulfilling my mommy duties. I take advantage of the time to feed my mind listening to podcasts and learning new skills from the many courses I invest in. My absolute fave audio resource is Audible, the audio book membership club through Amazon. Audible is my BFF in the car. I LOVE to read, but it’s hard to find the time to read a physical book so the next best thing and the quicker way for me to consume books is by listening to them. I highly recommend it. Try 2 free audiobooks using this link and see for yourself. With the membership, you receive new credits every month and from time-to-time they have sales so you can purchase audio books for less than the usual membership price which I find totally worth it. Also, if you add books to your wish list and those books go on sale, they’ll send you an email notification so you can take advantage of the sale.
Here’s a screenshot of my most recent playlist. I’m currently listening to Lucy & Desi for fun. I’m fascinated by the story of Old Hollywood stars. I’ve listened to Fredrik Eklund’s, The Sell multiple times and I absolutely loved Taraji P. Henson’s memoir, especially because she narrates it. If you need book recommendations, just ask!
4. Ebates – I cannot recommend this more. If you shop online, YOU NEED TO SIGN UP FOR EBATES!!! As you can see from the screenshot below, I’ve earned over $200 since signing up for Ebates. Download the mobile app on your phone and get the extension button for your computer desktop. With the button, when you shop online using your computer, it automatically tells you if the site you’re on is offering cash back.
This is a screen shot of my logging onto Lowes.com…see the pink button in the right hand corner? It automatically pops up and all you have to do is click the button to activate the 3% cash back (the cash back percentage varies by merchants) and the app automatically keeps track of what you purchase and you’ll get 3% back from your order. If you buy $100, you’ll get $3 back. Not bad for buying something you were going to buy anyway. You’re not going to get rich from this but it is nice to get cash back which Ebates refers to as Your Big Fat Check, every couple of months. If you don’t want the money, you’re welcome to send it my way, I’ll take some money over no money all day long!!!
That’s enough Friday Fave fun for now. I look forward to sharing more with you going forward. Let me know if you try any of these…I’d love to know!
Have a great weekend!
