Resolution Time: On The Homefront (Cleaning VS Cleaning HELP)

I enacted part of my New Year's Resolution yesterday which was to bump up the frequency of our house cleaners. (can I get a slow clap for that one)

It may not seem like a lot, but we are doing every 3 weeks now instead of every 4 weeks. This was a goal of mine (it also means I am keeping my LipSense business hustle going, because that's how I pay for our house cleaning) and I made it a TRUE resolution for 2018.

Having a cleaning team every so often certainly doesn't mean that I am some slacker SAHM who doesn't lift a finger. Quite the contrary. I bust my buns on the daily to keep the house tidy and try to stay one step ahead of two little tornadoes who can clear a toy bin faster than you say say "HALP." But to me, a cleaning team means the following: 1) a deeeeeep cleaning of the floors. 2) a deeeeep cleaning of the bathrooms including a full shower scrub-down. 3) baseboards and tall windows and under furniture, oh my! And lots of other areas of my home that I probably don't even realize are needing help, and Lisa just does it. 

Yesterday I was chatting with Lisa about the cleaning materials of mine that she uses. She said that she prefers the more plant-based products we use because they do a superb job cutting through grime and even require a little less scrubbing on her part. Plus they aren't as harsh on her skin and nose!

You already know that Grove Collaborative is my go-to home delivery service for my cleaning products. If you, too, want to give them a shot, you picked a great time because they're running a NEW PROMO that is open through this coming Sunday.

NEW CUSTOMERS can click right here to get started. Here's what you'll receive with your first $20 order:

  • Grove Collaborative Cleaning Concentrates (3 pack) 
  • Grove Collaborative Glass Spray Bottle 
  • Grove Collaborative Microfiber (2 pack) 
  • Grove Collaborative Cleaning Caddy
The spray bottle is a MUST. I keep ours in the laundry room and it contains a mixture of water and blue Dawn. It's my (not-so) secret laundry stain remover spray! I love that it's a glass bottle. 

And EXISTING CUSTOMERS, they're showing you love, too. Click right here to get my favorite disposable sponges (the walnut scrubber sponges) dropped in your cart as a little free gift. 

This promo runs only through SUNDAY, January 14! Go ahead and check out the promo and all of the amazing product lines that Groves carries. I love this delivery service because I get the BEST products at GREAT prices, and I don't have to schlep the girls around to Target to grab huge packs of paper towels and toilet paper and detergent any more. Plus, changing or delaying your monthly order is so, so simple. 

Happy (and cleaner!) 2018!


  1. ZERO shame in the house cleaner game girl! My come every week. One week they do the downstairs and finished basement and the next week they do the upstairs. We have 3 full baths upstairs and they said that was a lot to deal w/ when cleaning the downstairs too. It is some of the BEST money I spend every week. That being said, I still find myself cleaning all. the. dang. time. Small children make that necessary. Cleaners help us keep our sanity by doing the serious grunt work--GO FOR IT and God bless them. I love mine and I'm sure you feel the same. My husband finally agreed to it when I was pregnant with my oldest and super sick. I told him something had to give and that was the thing that gave!

  2. Praise the Lord for house cleaners! Ours comes monthly to do the deep cleaning as well. I prefer more natural cleaners as well and Jessica is amazing with her knowledge on what to use to keep chemicals out of my house. I learn so much from her!

  3. I've never had a house cleaner but now that I have a little babe I constantly feel like I'm missing out on time with her because I'm always cleaning SOMETHING. I am THIS CLOSE to biting the bullet and getting one... I am just too frugal to spend money on that haha!!

  4. We are moving next month and I have a goal to start utilizing a house cleaning service for the first time. With two young kids and two demanding careers (PA and police officer), I think it finally is time to ease some chaos in our lives. How do you prepare for the cleaning service when they arrive every 3 weeks? Do you feel the need to tidy up for them? Love the natural approach to cleansers.

  5. Yay! I'm so happy for you on the every three weeks thing. That's AWESOME. There is just something about a clean house -- and my house always feels cleaner (to me) when someone else gets in there and really deep cleans it. (Including the blinds, baseboards, dusting of all the picture frames and on top of furniture, etc.) I clean once a week and do laundry daily as a SAHM, but I always feel like I can never clean it as well as our sweet Liza does.

  6. Yay!! You will love having them every 3 weeks! I'm a SAHM and we got a house cleaner after my second was born and 3 years later it's still the best money we spend each month! Mine comes every 2 weeks and it's just the best feeling to have your whole house clean at the same time, which I feel like never happens with kids.

  7. Ooooh, as a work from home momma, I DREAM of a cleaner! I tell myself every occasion (Christmas, my birthday, mother's day) that I'm going to "ask" for that for a gift but I haven't bitten the bullet yet. You've inspired me again so... hopefully soon. ;)

  8. You decorate it very beautiful, I love your work out.




  9. i have been wanting to try this!! <3
