New opportunity

Well…..I know, I know, I know….direct sales things can work, if you work them, yada, yada, yada….

But…I did it anyway…..Yup. I joined up with Norwex. It’s a canadian based company that sells….get this (hold your laughter for a second) CLEANING PRODUCTS!!! I know….me selling cleaning products is completely crazy. I HATE cleaning. Can’t stand it at all. I’m very disorganized when it comes to cleaning and as long as I can get thru my house and nothing is gross is growing somewhere I’m usually ok with it. But that was before I discovered Norwex.

No my house is still far from perfect, but I can say it is clean! And it happened really quickly and safely. Ok- not like someone getting a broken leg safely, but with out chemicals safely. Using my Norwex stuff, I can clean my house with WATER!! I love this stuff.

This is the door in our sunroom. I haven’t cleaned it of dog snot spots, and kid finger prints in probably close to 7 years b/c it’s covered by a curtain. ImageThis is the after. It took all of about 2 minutes to clean this. (There is a screen door on the other side that is spotty. Didn’t want to cause myself a heart attack from cleaning too much at once- my system might not take it, lol)


I even took some of my Norwex products to my mom’s and my MIL’s. My mom actually heard me say “I MUST. STOP. CLEANING!” Four words I can promise you she never thought she’d hear out of my mouth. My MIL is still talking about how clean her storm door window is and it’s been a good month since I was there.

So–why did I do it? Well, if anything can make me clean my house than it’s worth investing in. Especially when it doesn’t cost anything to get started. I figured I should try it out.

Tupperware with Karen Dolinsky

Tupperware is one of my favorite products. I’ve loved it since I was a little girl and my daddy (yes, my DAD) was a Tupperware ‘lady’. He had this cute little button that said “Your Tupperware Lady is a Man.” Everything was brown, orange, yellow and green back then. I even had my own set of Tupperware dishes that my mom still has and my kids play with every time they are at her house. So needless to say I was excited when I got the opportunity to review Tupperware with Karen.


I got her number and called her and we had a nice visit. She had me go to her website and look at some of the items she already had coming in. We both figured it would be faster that way. I chose the Smart Prep System (retails for $21) for marinating and the Hot Dog Keeper (retails for $8). I figured this being summer those are two things I could really use.


After a few days Karen called and said she wanted to go ahead and send me my stuff but she didn’t have a box big enough for the Smart Prep System. So we went thru her items again and I got the Crystal Wave Soup Mug (retails for $12). My husband often gets stuck at work and misses lunch. He keeps soups and Ramen noodle type things in his desk. I thought this would be better than the glass soup mug he has. He thought it was great.


I buy my hot dogs in bulk, so the idea of the hot dog keeper where I could keep some in the fridge vs all in the freezer sounded awesome. When I got it and I went to put my hot dogs in it I realized that my hot dogs are longer than regular ones….but not a problem. I was still able to fit 8 hot dogs in there just had to arrange them a little differently. I’m guessing if I had regular sized hot dogs more than 8 would probably fit. It fits perfect in my fridge and doesn’t take up much space. I love it because now I always have hot dogs right there and don’t have to go down to the basement and get the box of frozen hot dogs, and bang and chip away to get them out.
