This is me when my house is a mess and I just want to pull my hair out! Don’t tell me I’m the only one who feels like this. I need my house to be clean before I can do anything else and I spend a lot of time making sure everything is clean and tidy so I can focus on other things like work and Aria. I wouldn’t say that I hate cleaning but I definitely wouldn’t be opposed to having someone else do it for me… for free! That’s why I’m teaming up with The Cleaning Authority to tell y’all about this amazing giveaway they are running right now. From now until July 7th you can post a picture on Instagram with the hashtag #MyBonusDays to enter to win an entire year of FREE house cleaning AND a free trip for two to Riviera Maya, Mexico! Don’t forget to tag their page @the_cleaning_authority. This may be the best giveaway EVER you guys! Ha ha. Who can pass up a year of free cleaning? You can also win by entering on the contest landing page www.mybonusdays.com.
Did you know that the average person spend 66 minutes per day engaging in different household tasks? That’s almost 17 days a year cleaning! What would you do with all of that free time back? I can’t imagine how much more productive in my job and personal life I could be! I’d love to hear what you’d do with your time (not spent cleaning) in the comments below! Additional contest details, full terms and conditions and real-time entries can be found at www.mybonusdays.com. The winner will be announced on July 13th! Better hurry and enter before it’s too late!
Since we can’t ALL win this giveaway I put together a couple of tips and tricks that I practice in my daily life to make my home feel refreshed. These three things really help me to enjoy my time at home even when my home isn’t super clean and organized! Check them out below and thanks for stopping by to read!
3 Easy Ways to Refresh Your Home
- Fresh Flowers always make my home feel clean and fresh even when it’s not. It’s hard to constantly buy fresh flowers but if you’re on a budget like me, I like to buy 1-2 bunches of baby’s breath and put them in mason jars all over my house. They’re a great flower to have in your home for Spring and Summer and one bunch will make at least 4 little bouquets! (See Picture below)
- Glad Plugins are a must in my home because we have two dogs and a toddler we are trying to potty train, ha ha. They really help us enjoy our home when we walk in from being gone all day. I love the lavender vanilla ones. You can find them here!
- Picking up before bed makes a load of difference for us in our house. Every night we will make sure to at least pick up the living room by putting away our shoes and drinks. I fluff our pillows and put the remotes away and even though it’s not much, it really makes waking up and walking into our living room much more enjoyable. It’s also nice to not feel so overwhelmed by how messy the house is when we wake up!
