Things Mentioned on This Week's Podcast

  • Martha Stewart's Homekeeping Handbook – this is a great basic cleaning book if you were never taught to clean a home
  • My Grove Review – This review is older (look at how tiny Sadie is!) but we still use Grove to get green and eco-friendly cleaning products delivered right to the door. I truly love the product selection and I especially love Grove's own line of kitchen cleaning brushes. Even as a busy mama of 8 it is easy for me to handle my monthly order and cancelling a box if I don't need anything that month is hassle-free. Highly recommended!
  • Motivated Moms – I have shared Motivated Moms many times before because it has truly been a lifesaver for me. I love how I have a few things to do every day to keep on track with home care, and I love how if I miss a day I know I'll catch back up soon. Motivated Moms has worked better for me than any other system – I feel a true sense of satisfaction when I have my daily “MoMo” block!
