How To Spring Clean Your Baby’s Closet

How to Spring Clean Your Baby's Closet

Cleaning your closet versus cleaning a baby’s closet is vastly different. For instance a baby is changing sizes every few months. We as adults don’t fluctuate all that often unless we are pregnant or dieting. In addition babies unlike adults are receiving clothes as gifts all the time from grandparents, neighbors, friends and from your late night impulse purchases. Lastly unlike adults who probably have 30-40 staples in their wardrobe, babies can have a 100 or so items. It gets to be a little daunting sorting through everything just to put an outfit together.

How To Explain The Spirit Of St. Patrick’s Day To Your Toddler

How To Explain The Spirit Of St. Patrick's Day To Your Toddler

Mommy Why Am I Wearing Green?

I honestly don’t remember if I ever had St. Patrick’s day actually explained to me as a child. I do recall an episode of the Simpsons when Groundskeeper Willy was chasing all the snakes off of the playground alluding to St. Patrick. That does ring a bell. That must have been where I learned about it. Or, I’m positive we must have learned about it in school. Somehow I just grew up knowing that on March 17th I wear green.

Why A JORD Watch Is the Perfect Gift For Mr. Adventure [GIVEAWAY]

This is a sponsored post. I sometimes receive products and/or services compliments of various companies. I however will only recommend products that I love and that I know my readers will love too. I was in no way required to write a positive review. The opinions shared below are completely my own.

JORD “We make our watches for people who don’t just have somewhere to be, they have somewhere to go.”

Whether its flying a plane,

racing a car,

By Land. Hand-Crafted Wood Timepiece JORD Dover Olive And Acacia Men's Watch.

or sailing a boat,

By Sea. Hand-Crafted Wood Timepiece JORD Dover Olive And Acacia Men's Watch.

my Mr. Adventure has done it all. It’s always been a challenge to find the perfect something for Austin. It’s even more of a challenge in today’s day and age. Austin orders himself what he wants, when he wants and gets it immediately.

That is why I was so excited when JORD selected me to share one of their watches with all of you. My hubby was also thrilled because he was immediately drawn in by the stunning and unique details of the Dover Olive and Acacia hand-crafted wood timepiece. It is truly a beautiful watch. Every detail is deliberate. Every detail is perfect.

The more I learn about JORD as a company the more impressed I become. Not only are their watches extremely modern and cool but they value sustainability in the woods that they select. On their website they feature details about each of their woods. For example, I can learn all about the source, grain, texture and sustainability of the two woods used in the Dover Olive and Acacia watch.

This partnership is seriously amazing because my friends at JORD are giving away a $100 gift code to one of my readers to use on the JORD site! I know what you’re probably thinking, “Julia, I never win giveaways” but don’t worry, because every entrant will receive a $25 gift code to JORD just for entering! The giveaway ends April 9th 11:59pm so be sure to get your entry in before time runs out.

Enter Here for the giveaway.

Good luck! I know you will enjoy your JORD as much as my Mr. Adventure does.

Before having Morgan I was on a very steady minimalist kick. I was downsizing and organizing my way to a structured and peaceful home. Truly the one thing I just wasn’t prepared for with having a baby is that babies come with a lot of stuff! When I’m talking about a lot I mean times a hundred! We had bassinets, bibs, blankets, books, bottles, carriers, clothes, and toys everywhere!

I very much tried to control my anxiety which was brought on by this new found clutter. Then I discovered my first true life saver. The KidCo Go-Pod Infant Activity Seat. From then on I knew I unlocked the door to clutter freedom! The key was FOLDING!!! I would love to share with you the 5 Remarkable Folding Baby Products You Have to See. Let’s start with my first discovery.

If there is one thing that I am known for it’s my irrational need to be prepared. Expecting a baby made my compulsion kick into overdrive. I stress out easily if I am not prepared for something. Literally anything! So of course I took my pre-baby stockpiling to the extreme. Morgan is close to 15 months now and I’m still good on most of our necessities! I learned a lot from creating my stockpile. In this post I want to share with you the best pre-baby stockpile must haves.

Save Money! The Sample Challenge. Will You Join Me?

Have you ever opened your bathroom cabinets to a sea of lotions, creams and face masks? How about all those small hotel samples of shampoo and conditioner that you hoard and swear you’ll use? If you answered yes to either of these questions then we are soul sisters!

I feel so bad throwing away my “just in case” items or my “oh I always wanted to try that brand” items. So I did what a lot of people do. I organized them away,  I bought stacking drawer organizers that would hold all of my chaos. I even labeled the drawers so I would know what was waiting inside. But alas, in actuality those sample size items were just sitting there for years and years going unused.
