5 hacks to a cleaner house, for the busy stay at home and work from home mom.

If you follow along the blog, you might know by now, that I am a work from home/stay at home mom.  I am an Etsy shop manager -which means that I have partnered up with different artists & crafters and I manage their Etsy shops.  In addition, my main passion is my blog | Glammed Events, which I am passionately pursuing & working on monetizing and growing. Everything that I do, I try to do between 7:45 – 2:45 -when my kids are in school and on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays only, because I also take care of my little nephew on Tuesdays & Wednesdays.

With a busy schedule, as you may relate, I am always looking for ways to maximize my time and to find ways to simplify my life; making my to do list a little manageable. One area in which I have always needed extra help has been maintaining my house clean. Not that its dirty at all, I just need to have a clean and organized house all the time -its sorta an inherited blessing and curse that I received from my mom.  I like things in their place, hence my post & FREE 30 day-organizational challenge on how to organize your house, one room at a time.

In dreamland, my house would clean itself, or I would have one fo those robot maids the Jetson’s had- the one that cleaned their entire house in seconds! BUT I don’t live in dreamland, and neither do you.

I will include *affiliate links to the products; in case you are interested in investing in them.  They will revolutionize your life as they have mine

It does the work of a Swiffer and a broom.  You can set up the times you need it to sweep your floors and it will get the job done. An added bonus is that it picks up fine dust particles, perfect for allergy suffers like me. Did I mention pet hair? We have an Australian Shepherd who sheds constantly, this amazing little robot does an amazing job picking up hair from every single corner! Totally worth the investment!
  2. Shark Sonic Duo Carpet and Hard Floor Cleaner (ZZ550):  I have Saltillo tile floors all over my house. It took me hours to get them cleaned properly. The Shark Sonic Duo floor Cleaner has been another game changer in cleaning my house. I no longer have to scrub my floors with a mop. I simply hold my Shark floor cleaner and it does all the scrubbing. An added bonus is that I am able to shine/buffer my floors with it.  I spray a small amount of High Gloss polish, my floors are transformed.

  4. Smart POP UP Collapsible Laundry Basket – Space Saving Foldable Storage Container – EASY to use and carry – Versatile Portable Organizer :  Laundry baskets are so useful, but they take up so much space.! These amazing collapsable laundry baskets have changed my laundry days. Easy to use baskets that have great handles; they fit as much clothes are my non-collapsable baskets- but now they only take up about two inches of my laundry room space!
