3 Products To Have On Hand When You Go Shopping!

Beauty Brite Disclosure

Nowadays you need certain products on hand when you leave the house, especially when you go shopping! Pretty much all stores around us require a mask, so we have several on hand. We want to share with you some products we love and have on hand all the time.

MASKS are #1 Product You Need When You Go Shopping

My daughter and I go out all the time together, and we love to wear matching masks! Mommy and Me Masks are so much fun to wear. The other day we had to get items from Home Depot, and here in California, it is MANDATORY to wear masks in public and places of businesses.

Better to be safe than sorry! Wearing a mask can be a nuisance, BUT it is a must! My family doesn’t want to get sick or get others sick, so this is our way to protect everyone around us- Plus with these masks, we are looking CUTE!

The Leotard Boutique- Mom and Me Matching Face Masks – 2 pack

The mask isn’t medical-grade, and they aren’t virus-proof, but they are for practicing social distancing. However, there is a pocket for a filter insert, which is excellent in case we want to add a filter. I love the fit, and as I said, we look cute!

BTW For every mask sold, they donate $2 to the NHCF Community Crisis Action Fund.

Another set of MASKS we use is from Uppitees Fashions and Tie Dye

STORAGE for MASKS is a MUST-HAVE!

Products To Have On Hand When You Go Shopping! The Side Pocket

The one thing I found out is I lose masks because I don’t have anything to put them in beside my purse, but I don’t like them in my purse. I came across this cool SIDE POCKET, which is a custom pouch which fixed my problem- wear to put my mask- or the extra one! I love having the side pocket when I go shopping, so I have my mask and hand sanitizer on hand!

Check out this video to know more about the SIDE POCKET

I also use this when I walk the dog- put in dog treats, poop bags, and my hand sanitizer. I know when places open up more, I will be using the Side Pocket more. BTW this will make a great GIFT for the holidays- just putting that out there since the holidays are fast approaching, and this is a must-have product.

Hand Sanitizer is very important product to have on hand when you go shopping!

There are so many hand sanitizers out there, but I use the doTERRA On Guard Sanitizing Mist, and I love it. I have one in my car, purse and the house. They are under $10, so it is worth it for me!

I use this spray on the cart, products I pick up, and after I leave the store. I love the smell- not a CLEANER smell like other hand sanitizes. Also, if I need to use the restroom when I am shopping, I spray this all over the toilet and faucet.

These days it is all about protecting ourselves in this crazy world we are living in! So make sure you have these products when you go out shopping!

We Opened Our Home To A Foster Dog And It Changed Everything

It’s been well over a decade since we’ve had a dog. I grew up with dogs in the house and even had a dog early on in my adult life. Since it’s been years since we’ve had a dog, I was looking to help fill an empty part of heart with a dog. Since I am a single mom living on a fixed income, I knew I couldn’t afford to have a dog. Fostering a dog allows me to care for a dog temporarily and the shelter provides everything needed to care for the animal. We opened our home to a foster dog and it changed everything for us!

I had been thinking about being a foster dog mom for months! I found a few local shelters and filled out their forms to be a foster parent. It took a few weeks, but finally heard back from a few. Some require that you attend an orientation, one place offered an online orientation presentation, which was convenient for me. Ultimately, I found a local shelter, filled out their form and joined their Facebook group. One afternoon, they listed a dog that needed a foster home. I left a comment saying I was interested but was sure they had plenty of responses. They responded that they didn’t have any! So, I quickly sent an email expressing my interest. I told them a bit about myself, my schedule, and our household. It took a few weeks and we were finally able to take her home.
