Get Clean Laundry Without Breaking the Bank - #PurexplusOxi and a contest!

My kids are 2 and 3 years old which means LOTS of laundry with lots of stains including blood, dirt, food and potty stains.  There's definitely lots of potty stains at this point!  It's important to find a good laundry detergent that'll work hard at getting these stains out.

I was recently provided with a bottle of Purex plus Oxi detergent for my family to try.  Right off the bat I love that it's a liquid detergent with Oxi and Zout stain removal power and it can also be used as a pretreater for those really tough stains.

My daughter tends to have the dirtiest laundry so I went to work on her clothes first.  The first set of pictures are the before pictures followed by the after pictures.

The skirt had blood stains, the zebra shirt was really dirty from dirt and the pink onesie had strawberry juices all over it.  As you can see from the pictures the Purex plus Oxi did a pretty good job of removing all the stains.  I don't think it's any better than my current detergent but I can't argue with the affordability of Purex and I actually already did have some in my laundry room but not this specific variety.  Purex often goes on sale for $2.99 a bottle making it a great option.  Visit www.purexlaundry.ca for more information.  

Three of my wonderful readers (Canada only) will receive a coupon to try Purex plus Oxi for themselves and see how your laundry will be Bright, White and Clean for less than the other brands.  Enter below on rafflecopter!

Weekly Meal Plan

I really suck lately about keeping this current.  Something must be done about that.  I've just found this summer to be so busy keeping the kids busy and enjoying the beautiful weather.  We've definitely had a wonderful summer.

So here goes:

1.  Chicken Express - I can find this recipe anywhere but it's basically a chicken stirfry with a soy sauce/vinegar/brown sugar and spices sauce served on rice (or in my case quinoa)
2,  Pasta in Creamy Cauliflower Sauce - I saw this recipe the other day and wanted to try it out but I still have to pickup some cauliflower that isn't half rotten in the store!
3.  Breakfast for dinner - a tradition since I have no time for big breakfasts in the morning so it'll be anything from french toast to pancakes, sausages or waffles.
4.  Chicken nuggets - these are saved for days I'm time crunched for dinner and it has to be in a hurry.  Served with veggies and a pasta side
5.  Quinoa and Black Bean Casserole - I found this when I saw the cauliflower sauce and it looks so good so we'll give it a try too!
