AUGUST ALREADY? Wanna know one of my secret life hacks?

AUGUST ALREADY? Wanna know one of my secret life hacks?

Hey, Ya'll!
Please tell me I'm not the only one and that you've all been there...
One day you're sleeping in and staying up late with the babes, then suddenly the first day of school is right around the corner! *insert sad face emoji*
I know for me, when summer is coming to an end and school is coming back in session, I need a way to keep my home organized AND healthy. From orientations, to doctor's visits, after school activities, packing lunches, and helping with homework - there is just about zero time left. Am I right? 
So, when I was introduced to Grove Collaborative earlier this year, I knew I had to share. It's been my secret weapon to less grocery store visits, saving money AND getting the best all natural and safe products for me and my little.
Grove makes creating a healthy, beautiful home effortless and affordable. I've always wanted to jump on the healthy/all-natural train, but it's just always seemed so far out of reach. But see, Grove - they deliver the best natural products (carbon offset) right to your doorstep, on YOUR schedule. Yep - YOUR schedule...YOUR doorstep! Each month, I add the items I need to my list (or bi-monthly...or just whenever the heck I need it!) and BOOM - Grove has me covered. Grove has been a HUGE help for my cleaning and organization needs as we head into back-to-school.
Best part - when I first signed up, I got a ton of stuff for free. Lucky for you, I get to share some of those same free goodies with you. I'll explain how below. Oh - and ya'll no I'm a no-nonsense kind of girl. No catches, no nothing. Just cool stuff for us ol' mamas.
It's easy - All you've gotta do is spend $20 on your first order. You can choose whatever you'd like within that $20. After you meet the 20$ minimum, you get ALL of this for free! (Check out that sweet picture below - AND THEY HAVE NEW FALL SCENTS!!!)
  • Mrs. Meyer's hand soap
  • Mrs. Meyer's dish soap
  • Mrs. Meyer's multi-surface spray
  • Grove hand sanitizer spray 
  • Grove walnut scrubber sponges
Oh - AND if you get shop-happy, you'll get that cute white caddy FREE for your new goods if you spend $39 or more.
No worries, if you're like me and you're already a customer, you'll get a free set of Grove walnut scrubber sponges when you place an order, too.
BTW - I use NOTHING else except Mrs. Meyers cleaning products and soaps. The vintage packaging and scents have completely won me over. They just flow right into my lifestyle and farmhouse decor. (I can't be the only one who notices stuff like that...the packaging, etc.?)

Want to know some of my tips for keeping my house clean and as germ free as possible? Follow my stress-free tips to stay organized and healthy as we head into fall: 
  • Back to school means lots of germs! I like to throw a bottle Grove Collaborative hand sanitizer spray in my daughters backpack so she can clean up before lunch or snack time. I also keep one in the car so she can disinfect her hands after school. (And me too throughout the day!)
  • Of course, hand washing is the best way to keep from getting sick — but have you ever tried to convince a wiggly first grader to wash for the recommended 20 seconds? Here's a trick that works in my home: Let each of your kids pick out a bottle of Mrs. Meyer's hand soap in their favorite scent. It smells so good, I practically have to drag them away from the sink! We especially love the lavender and lemon verbena scents. Oh and NEW FALL SCENTS ARE AVAILABLE!!
  • Teachers spend so much money out-of-pocket on classroom supplies, so donations of disinfecting wipes and tissues are always appreciated. I'm adding a few containers of Seventh Generation disinfecting multi-surface wipes and several boxes of Seedling tissues to my Grove order to send in to my daughters' classrooms.
  • Don't forget back-to-school teacher gifts, too! This free Mrs. Meyer's trio is beautiful, but also totally practical for a busy teacher.
  • The first question when Aiyana gets home is typically, "Hey mom, what's for snack?". This year, I'm keeping a drawer in the fridge stocked with grab-and-go snacks like cut up fruit, cheese sticks, and whatever else is on her forever changing snack list. Grove reusable storage bags are a great way to store individual portions because they're durable, easy to clean, and won't leak all over the fridge! I use these things like crazy!
  • When things get hectic, multi-tasking cleaning supplies are a must. I love Mrs. Meyer's multi-surface spray because I can walk around the entire house and clean countertops, floors, toys, and even sticky lunchboxes with just one bottle. This stuff is my saving grace. No joke - I use it on EVERYTHING!
  • So, ya know that cute white caddy you can get for free? Well, I created a "homework station" by filling the caddy with supplies like pencils, sharpeners, tape, glue, crayons, colored pencils, and a stapler. Just an idea if you happen to get this freebie with your purchase. 
  • If your house is like mine, dishes seem to multiply when you're not looking. Fortunately, Mrs. Meyer's dish soap and Grove walnut scrubber sponges make quick work of greasy pans, crockpots, and lunch containers.
  • School supplies can take a big chunk out of your budget. Grove Collaborative is a great way to save on back-to-school household and personal care products like tissues, hand sanitizer, and vitamins. I find that items are less expensive than our local grocery store, and you can often score free products with a minimum purchase. Plus, once you've submitted your first order, you'll be signed up for the free 60 day VIP trial. For 60 days, you'll save even more with free shipping, free gifts, price matching, exclusive sales and personal service.
