Gretchiverse Great Grabs – March 2019

March is not only spring break but also Colorado’s snowiest month. It is a reminder that Colorado is my favorite state because we get to see all the seasons (sometimes all in one day). But there are several other things that are my favorite this month.

Little House on the Prairie. My favorite show as a kid was Little House on the Prairie. I was fully convinced that I was going to be Laura Ingalls Wilder – despite the fact that I was the oldest of only two girls (which at the very least would have made me Mary) and that I was born in 1970 something.  But as I was searching for my next Amazon Prime or Netflix binge – I found that Amazon has all the Littlet House seasons! Yippee!!!  I started binge watching Season 1 and am finding I love it nearly as much now as I did when I was little, even if my delusional mindset is a bit more realistic these days.

Trader Joe’s Rose Water Facial Toner. The first time I went to a Trader Joe’s here in Denver, I wasn’t so sure what everyone was so dang excited about. The stuff was “weird” and the shelves were nearly bare. I now understand the value of the strange (and awesome) Trader Joe’s mix of items. My daughter and I recently tried the  Trader Joe’s Rose Water Facial Toner. With hydration and freshness this was a perfect little spritz on our face when traveling (which we just did to Disneyland) as well as a great start to any day. At just $3.99 we can all really stop and smell the roses!

Third Love Bra. I’m typically pretty modest – I don’t talk about the underwear that I have on, where I shop or how it fits. But this is one I’m ok talking about – mostly because I feel like it is a hidden gem. I tried the 24/7 Classic T-Shirt Bra. I was mostly intrigued by the memory foam cups and half size cup size options. They said the pleated straps are perfect balance of softness and support – and won’t fall down. They have a try on program, for just $4.99 you can try the bra on and then return it if you still don’t love it. Plus, when you first sign up you get an extra money off!

Irish Egg Roll. Because I’m no a pretty tight budget – I try to look for meals that not only make the meal that day, but also have some great leftover potential. This month, you can get corned beef fairly inexpensively. I like the St. Patrick’s Day meal of corned beef and cabbage. What to do with all the leftovers? You may have already done the Ruben sandwich – which is good too. But, my most recent favorite is stuffing an egg roll wrapper with lefover corned beef, cabbage, and carrots. Fry then serve with ground mustard as an amazing, quick, eazy and yummy leftover recipe.

I started Great Grabs – because there was a lot of great little tips, items, shows, books, movies, recipes that I was loving and wanted to share somewhere. If you have something you’d like to share with me, please message me!
