31 Days to Live With Less + $200 Giveaway!

31 Days to Live with Less

If you’ve been following my blog for long you know that in January I kicked off a 52 Weeks to Live With Less series.  It has been a fun adventure to take with you all and I’m excited to make the month of October a challenge month.  I’ll be posting a challenge daily and there will be a B-I-G prize up for grabs for one reader.  Don’t worry if you don’t catch the first post right away, I’ll give everyone a few days leeway at the beginning.  This is going to be great, y’all!

Since there is always more strength in numbers, I would love for you guys to join me here and in my Live With Less Facebook group this month for some daily organization inspiration and support.  Each day will only require 5-15 minutes of decluttering for a simpler and less cluttery home.  I’m excited at the thought!  If you share any of your photos on social media or your blog please include the hashtag #LiveWithLessChallenge so I can find it….and that way everyone can search the hashtag for instant organization/decluttering inspiration!

Contest – Win $200!

To give you a little more motivation to toss your unwanted belongings, I’m going to award one reader a $200 Amazon gift card.  Winner will be drawn randomly from those who have completed the challenge.

Contest Rules:

  • – You must submit your daily entry by posting photos of your items to be tossed (recycled, donated, etc.) on the wall of our Facebook group – located here.  You can start a new post each day or continue posting follow up days in the comments of your first post.  Whichever is fine by me. (Side note, if you’re new to Facebook groups and you don’t want to see notifications when everyone posts you can change the settings in the group.  Message me in the group if you need help with this.)
  • – If you don’t have Facebook you can also email me the pictures at MrsAshleyWalkup@gmail.com with the subject Live With Less Challenge.
  • – If you know you’re going to have a busy week you can work ahead in the challenge up to two days ahead of time and you can be two days late and still be eligible for the prize.
  • We’re going to start the challenge a on Saturday, Oct. 3rd so we can give others a few days to find this challenge and give you who are reading this a head start gathering unwanted items. 🙂  We’ll still do 31 days but the first few will be so easy you can do multiple ones in a day.
  • – Share this with a friend!  It’s easier to stick with it if you have a friend or family member who are joining in too.
  • – Last but not least, have fun!!!

I’m excited to have you join me. 🙂  Feel free to start snapping pics, tossing, and posting your pics in our group now but our official start date will be Oct. 3rd.

Here’s a handy dandy printable version!

Oh and please know that when I say toss, I really mean donate, recycle, and lastly throw away.

Day 1: Paper.
Do you have a pile of old mail, cards, coupons, paperwork collecting on your kitchen counter (or covering all of your counters like mine have been before currently are)?  Sort through old receipts, bills, and shred, recycle, and relocate your paper to it’s proper home…after you take a picture to share with us that is.

Day 2: Junk drawer.
Take a photo of it before.  Take everything out.  Put back in only the things that you’ll use.  Take another photo of the unwanted, well, junk and a photo of the nice, new organized drawer!

Day 3: Sock drawer.
Sort through your sock drawer and toss any unpaired socks or holey beyond repair socks that may be hanging around. Photograph your donation/trash sock heap.  If your sock drawer is already perfect, show me a picture of that drawer and find something else to toss. 🙂

Day 4: Cleaning supplies.
Go through your cleaning supplies and get rid of the products you never use.  If you have half filled bottles of the same product, combine them.  Toss any old rags that you never use or that may have passed the age of usability.

Day 5: Medicine/first aid supplies.
It is recommended that medicine be stored in a cool dry place out of the reach of children.  Sort through your medications and toss any items that are expired or you’re unlikely to ever need again.  Visit fda.gov for proper ways to dispose of them.

Day 6: Bathroom cabinets.
Sort through your beauty products and keep only the ones you’ve used.  Old hotel shampoo bottles?  If you haven’t used them yet chances are you won’t.  Put them in the shower and use them this week or toss them.  Old electric razor you’re not sure where it came from?  Check with your spouse, then toss it.

Day 7: Your choice.
Go to the most cluttered area in your home and toss what you don’t need, don’t use, or don’t find attractive.

Day 8: Shoes.
Evaluate the shoes in your house and let go of the ones that rub blisters, that you’re keeping in case a special occasion happens to arise, that have holes in them, etc.  If you don’t use them, they’re just closet clutter.

Day 9: Decor.
Do you have extra place mats you no longer use?  A picture you never really liked hanging in the hall?  Decorative pillow that matched your last couch?  Search out those unloved belongings and pass them on to someone who can enjoy them.

Day 10: Clutter magnet.
Take a picture of an area in your home that is a magnet for clutter.  Entry way?  Kitchen counter?  Dining room table?  Take a before picture.  Find a home for the keepers and toss the rest.  Take an after picture.

Day 11: Something broken.
Fix or toss anything you have that is broken.  Keeping it around will just make you groan inside every time you look at it.  Free yourself.

Day 12: Magazines/catalogs.
If you have old magazines sitting around because you haven’t clipped that recipe or idea out yet go do that now.  Donate or recycle the rest and free yourself from clutter.  If you have several ideas clipped out for, say a new bedroom remodel (like I do) store them away in a folder in your filing cabinet.  They’re accessible without causing clutter.

Day 13: Email clutter.
Use unroll.me to unsubscribe yourself from all those mailing lists you never remember signing up for.  It’s such an enjoyable experience, you might even hear angels singing!  Take a screenshot of how many you unsubscribed from if you want to brag.  You can also take a photo of your computer for this entry…after you’ve unsubscribed from emails.  It’s not necessary to use unroll.me for this challenge but it’s a great tool to make unsubscribing a breeze (and it’s free!).

Day 14: Games.
If you have old board games you never play consider donating them to someone that would get use out of them.  Old electronic games count as well!

Day 15: Garage/basement.
Both garages and basements are known for collecting clutter.  Set a timer and spend 10 minutes in your garage or basement finding things you no longer use.  Sell, donate, recycle, or trash.

Day 16: Kid’s Toys.
If you don’t have kids, find a random cluttery item to toss.  If you have kid’s evaluate which toys are loved and bring happiness to your child.  Let go of the unwanted toys so that they can focus on their favorites.

Day 17: 4 Things
Find 4 items, any items in your home to get rid of.

Day 18: Pantry
Go through your cabinets and toss all expired products.  Put the ones nearing their expiration date nearest the front.

Day 19: Bookshelves.
Sell, donate, or recycle books that you will no longer read.  This is a hard one for me but if all it does is collect dust, it’s not worth having.

Day 20: Kitchen Cabinets.
Search for kitchen items you no longer use.  The high shelves are probably a great place to start.  Make sure all your storage containers have matching lids.  Toss duplicate kitchen gadgets and utensils.  Have an enormous appliance you only pull out once a year?  Consider storing it in a different location (attic, garage, basement, under a bed, etc.) to keep your kitchen less cluttered.  Toss any cookbooks you have never used.

Day 21: Car.
Grab two plastic bags and head out to your car(s).  Use one bag for trash and the other one for items that belong in doors.  If your cars are perfectly kept, show us a picture and find another item to toss.

Day 22: Linens.
Evaluate all the sheets, blankets, and towels in your home.  If you never use them all, let go of some.  Don’t forget dish towels too!

Day 23: Entertainment area.
Find all your CDs and DVDs and make sure they’re in the right cases.  Toss any you don’t listen to or watch anymore.  Possibly download your CD’s electronically and then toss it.  Make sure you’re not just collecting them because you spent money on them.  If it isn’t bringing you joy now, let it go.

Day 24: Your choice!
Go to the most cluttered area in your home and toss what you don’t need, don’t use, or don’t find attractive.

Day 25: Something embarrassing.  
If you can, find something to throw away that you would be embarrassed if anyone knew you had it.  Mine is a near-dead plant.  My husband calls it dead but I see a little bit of green so I’m clinging to the hope that one day it will come back.  It’s been this way for two years.  I need to admit it’s gone and let it rest in peace.

Day 26: Fridge/freezer.
Find and remove all items from that have expired, are frost bitten, or you know you will never use.  See Making & Maintaining a Freezer Inventory so this doesn’t happen again.

Day 27: Something sentimental.
I’m not talking about your most prized possession that your great great Mimi left you but something you don’t like but you’re holding to because you would feel guilty letting go of it.  If you can’t make yourself part with it store it away in a closet or attic for a few months and reevaluate it again later.  Chances are you won’t have missed it any and will have an easier time letting go then.

Day 28: Closet.
Take a picture of at least one thing you’re tossing from your closet.  Wrong size, wrong style, or just wrong for any human to ever wear, toss it.  No guilt.  Wear what makes you feel good about yourself.

Day 29: Your choice!
Go to the most cluttered area in your home and toss what you don’t need, don’t use, or don’t find attractive.

Day 30: Something seasonal.
Do you have Christmas wrapping paper that never gets used but you found it on sale for $0.10 so you feel like you have to keep it?  Maybe that’s just me.  What about old decor that you no longer set out?  Toss it.

Day 31: What’s left.
What did I miss?  Look around your room now and see what looks out of place?  If it doesn’t have a home or a purpose, let it go.

I can’t wait to share my 31 day decluttering journey with you and am excited to see how you much you all will get rid of!

Are you ready to begin?  I promise that come November 1st you’ll be happy you joined in!

REACH – Making Oral Care Easy

This is part of a sponsored campaign on behalf of REACH. 

A new study from Kelton Global shows 82% of the nation’s moms never skip brushing their teeth every night (even when they don’t wash their face or remove their make up).  I believe that too because no matter how exhausted I am at night I always brush my teeth.  Well, at least 99.9% of the time.  Oral care is important for my only my smile but my health.

REACH Complete Care products were designed to streamline a busy moms daily routine to ensure they maintain healthy smiles year-round.  A product made specifically for busy moms?  I love that!  It makes me feel like someone understands me.

My family has fallen in love with REACH mouthwash, specifically their containers.  They are the coolest mouthwash containers known to man.  Have you seen them yet?  My daughter has their Hello Kitty one which is absolutely adorable and has a melon flavor that is great for kiddos.  (I’d take a picture to show you but as I’m writing this now it’s too dark out for a good picture.  Sorry!)

Reach Complete Care

Here’s a picture of my new mouthwash, complete with a built in toothbrush holder.  That’s a first for mouthwashes, right?  Space saving!

Reach Mouthwash Dispenser

The no-mess pump and handy dosage cup makes it easy to dispense the right amount every time.  I love that you can store the cup on the mouthwash it’self for easy access.  Plus, the cup has little groves in the bottom of it to reduce residue and splatter.

Reach Curve Toothbrush

The REACH Complete Care CURVE toothbrush has a 13° triple angled neck and triple angled bristles designed to maximize contact with teeth and help clean between teeth and around the gum line.  I really like the shape and weight of the toothbrush.  It fits well in my hand and isn’t awkward to hold on to like some are.

The next time you’re at Walgreens or CVS take a look at REACH’s Complete Care Mouth Rinse and Curve toothbrush.  I think you’ll love them too!

Sterling Prevail Shower Door

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sterling for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Along with summer’s sweat, sunscreen, and dirt comes more baths for the little ones!  Baths can be a headache for some but for us, the key to a smooth bath time has been routine!

undefined

When we announce it’s time for a bath my daughter knows what to expect.  She knows that it’s her job to get her pjs, Dad will run the bath water, and I’ll carry my son and grab his clothes and the towels.  Then my daughter picks which towel she’ll use (her brother is still too young to care) and we begin.  We always clean the hair first because it’s their least favorite, then wash everywhere else, and then they can play.

Establishing our routine has helped cut down on meltdowns because there are no surprises and no negotiations taking place.  We have our routines for morning and bed time too.  For me, it’s critical to have a routine when they are the sleepiest.  That way there’s no debate, it’s just time for so and so.

Does your family benefit from a bath time routine?

Bath time means a lot of lifting kids into the water (thanks, hubby!) and a lot of leaning over to scrub little dirty toes. Sterling shower doors with ComforTrack technology are a great addition to any family’s bathtub (or shower).  It has a flexible track, which is comfortable, easy to clean, and a smart addition to any showering space.  Unlike other tracks you don’t have to worry about accidentally stepping on it or it digging into your elbows when your cleaning the kiddos.  It’s also great for washing dogs and for relaxing in the tub with your feet up – things you can’t do with a hard shower track, but the ComforTrack technology makes it possible.

The track is also extremely durable.  Its heavy-duty material withstands rigorous testing, ensuring that it will outlast day-to-day wear and tear. What’s more, the track features a low profile and sleek shape that is easy to keep clean. This innovation is truly a win-win for today’s homeowner.

SWASH at Best Buy

This is a sponsored post for Best Buy but as always, all opinions are my own.

Swash

Dry cleaners are great in that you don’t even have to get out of your car and your clothes are being taken care of – but what if there’s a solution for taking the best care of your clothes without having to leave your home?  That would be pretty great, huh?  The SWASH Clothing Care System is the solution for saving you time, money, and your clothes!  The SWASH System  is a 10-minute in-home clothing care system that’s now available for purchase at Best Buy.  If this sounds like something right up your alley, I encourage you to visit your local Best Buy to see the SWASH System in-person and take advantage of two fabulous offers:

 

$150 off SWASH Clothing Care System at Best Buy

when you buy any Whirlpool Laundry Pair at Best Buy (Hurry, only valid May 17th thru June 6th!)

 

$75 Best Buy Gift Card when you buy SWASH

starting June 7th and only available thru June 20th

 

The SWASH™ System Saves Three Ways:

Saves You Time – Allows garments to look their best in as little as 10 minutes. So say goodbye to excessive washing, drying, ironing and dry cleaning.

Saves You Money – People who dry clean at least once a month spend about $758. With the SWASH system, you can cut your dry cleaning bills by 50%.2.  Plus, no need to load up the kiddos and spend gas money!

Saves Your Clothes – The SWASH system is gentle and doesn’t wash away dyes or cause pilling or fading, so you can actually extend the life of your clothes.  I love this about it!

Swash in Bedroom

SWASH operates quietly and has a sleek design that makes it look perfect in any room.  It comes in two colors shadow and linen.  Keep it in your bedroom, your walk-in closet, the living room, anywhere it is convenient for you.  Any standard outlet will do for your SWASH system so you could set it up almost anywhere!  It’s a great time saver because it will help you wear your clothing more between dry cleanings.  Less ironings and washings mean that the fabric will hold up longer…which means more money in your freshly pressed pocket.

SWASH Review

SWASH not only makes your clothes look good but it makes them smell great too!  The SWASH Clothing Care System uses SWASH Pods made by Tide that neutralize odor and leaves clothes smelling clean.  For those with sensitive skin issues (like my family), you can get the Sensitive SWASH Pods (which are only available at Best Buy).

Is SWASH something that could benefit your family?  I know I’d love one!

Tips for Spring Car Maintenance

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cooper Tires for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Tips for Spring Car Maintenance

Now that the weather is finally starting to turn nice, the winter cold is shaking off and you can see road trips in the near future, it may be time to take a look at getting your vehicle ready for spring! It is important to service your car when the weather changes as your engine, tires and interior need different treatment when the weather warms up. So before you hit the road, make sure to take a peek at this list of tips for spring car maintenance and check things off so you can not only stay safe on the road, but also keep your car in good shape for years to come!

Tips for Spring Car Maintenance

Cooper4

 Check your tires. Depending on where you live, you may have studded snow tires still on your car. Not only do most states require you remove them by a certain date, but they can be bad for your car as well if left on in warm weather. If you don’t have studded snow tires, it is still important to check the wear and tear on your tires and get new ones if you need to. Worn tires can throw off your alignment and this can cause serious damage to your car as can not rotating them. Plus, good tires help you get great gas mileage! Spring is a perfect time to purchase new tires and Cooper Tire’s has a great promotion to help you roll into spring.  The Cooper Tire Spring Event is going on now!

Now, through April 15, consumers are eligible to receive a prepaid Visa card worth up to $70 when purchasing a new set of four qualifying Cooper Tires through participating dealers.

If you drive an SUV or a CUV you can get the Discoverer SRX tires.  The Discoverer SRX offers a premium 65,000-mile Tread Wear Protection Warranty and a 45-Day Road Test guarantee ensure a confident choice and smooth ride for SUV and CUV drivers, if you aren’t satisfied with your Discoverer SRX tire purchase you may return them to your original dealer within 45 days of purchase for a FREE OF CHARGE Cooper brand replacement only, including mounting and balancing.

The Wear Square is located at six points of reference around the inside and outside of the tread. Throughout the tire’s lifetime, the square changes shape beginning with a full square and ending with an exclamation mark when tire tread is low, allowing consumers to quickly and easily assess the approximate tread remaining on the tires.

Use the Dealer Locator to find a dealer near you so you can save on an important part of your car that keeps your family safe.

Cooper2

– Hit the car wash. Many people think you wash your car just so it looks nice, and although that is a big reason to do it, another reason is because winter does a number on paint jobs and can actually cause rusting if left dirty too long.

– Check wiper blades and blinkers. Wiper blades should  be replaced every 6 months or so in order to make sure they can handle the spring rains.

– Do an oil change. It is easy to remember to do an oil change if you do one every time a new season comes along. Spring is a great time since you may need to change the kind and weight of oil you use in warmer weather.

Cooper3

 Check your fluids. Make sure you have plenty of washer fluid, brake fluid and coolant for warm weather.

– Do a good clean of your interior. Make sure to wipe down your dashboard and apply a protective product so the sun doesn’t damage it.

Declutter Game $100 Prize! #LiveWithLess

Declutter Game

For those who haven’t been following along with our Live With Less series, we had a game last month and I think I can speak for everyone when I say that we really enjoyed it.  It was surprisingly fun and so freeing!  Congratulations, to Ashley M. our winner for February!

I had just planned on doing it one month but at the end of the month I looked around my house and I honestly couldn’t tell that I got rid of a thing!  I haven’t missed anything and my house is still cluttered.  Maybe some of you don’t have an extra 400 and some things to get rid of again this month but I know some of you do…and I hope some new faces will join us.

For those who participated last month, I’ll save you some reading and say that the rules are the same.  For those who are new, welcome!  All the details you need are below and feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Declutter game - $100 cash prize!

A game that will hopefully end with everyone owning less stuff and one winner walking away with a $100 in cash!

The game is a simple one.  For the month of March, you will need to get rid of one thing on the first day of the month.  On the second, two things.  On the third, three things….and so on.  Clothes, toys, tools, junk, decorations, etc.

This is your mission should you choose to accept it!  It starts off easy but it will soon get trickier.  You can do it!!

Because we’re already a little behind you can make them up at anytime through the 7th.

How will I choose a winner?  We’re all winners by getting rid of our unwanted belongings but I’ll choose a winner from the people who take pictures of their discarded items each day and do one of three things 1) Share them on social media and tag them #EmbracingHomemaking and #LiveWithLess, if you’re not active online 2) Email the pictures to me at MrsAshleyWalkup@gmail.com or 3) Share them in our Live With Less Facebook group.

Q&A

  • – If you skip a day are you disqualified? No, but you may only skip one day at a time.  Two consecutive skips will disqualify you from winning but you’re welcome to continue playing.
  • Can you work ahead?  Yes, try to only do one or two days ahead though.
  • – Can you track my shares on social media?  Yes, if you use the #EmbracingHomemaking and #LiveWithLess hashtag I can track them.
  • – How can I make sure my emails get delivered to you? Okay, so no one would really ask this but for my sanity, could you please put #LiveWithLess Day 1 in the subject line?  Thank you!
  • – How do I make up the days that have already passed?  Simply take a picture of one item by itself, two items by themselves, etc. until the 7th, when you should be caught up.  By then you should have a total of 28 items being trashed, donated, or set aside to sell.
  • – If I share pictures of my junk in the Live With Less Facebook group will all of my friends see it?  No, not unless they are in the group.
  • – Will you be sharing the items you’re getting rid of?  Yes!  I’ll be posting them in our Live With Less Facebook group daily.  Forgive the bad quality pics, this is going to be a quick thing every day.
  • – What if more than one person makes it to the 28th?  That would be wonderful and I would choose a winner at random using random.org.
  • – What if no one makes it to the 31st?  Then I’m keeping the money for myself and going to the spa! 😉

A Side Note:

Have you been selling some of your items that you’re tossing?  I’ve been selling some of my unwanted things online and have been shocked at the money I’ve made.  So far this year, I’ve pocketed just under $800!  ….and I haven’t missed anything I’ve sold!!!

Who’s ready to play?  I hope you’ll join me!  This is more fun with friends!

Declutter Game – Prize $100 Cash!

Declutter Game

For those who haven’t been following along with our Live With Less series, we had a challenge last month to completely clean a small space in your home.  You can read more about it here but the gist is we separated our space into sections and worked on it a little at a time.  I was excited about it but I found out that that process overwhelmed many of you.  I’ve been there before.  Many times.

This month I want to do something a little more fun and a little less daunting – let’s play a game!

Declutter game - $100 cash prize!

A game that will hopefully end with everyone owning less stuff and one winner walking away with a $100 in cash!

This is your mission should you choose to accept it!  It starts off easy but it will soon get trickier.  Just think though, this is the shortest month of the year.  You can do it!!

Because we’re already 4 days behind you can make them up at anytime this week.

How will I choose a winner?  We’re all winners by getting rid of our unwanted belongings but I’ll choose a winner from the people who take pictures of their discarded items each day and do one of three things 1) Share them on social media and tag them #LiveWithLess, if you’re not active online 2) Email the pictures to me at MrsAshleyWalkup@gmail.com or 3) Share them in our Live With Less Facebook group.

Organizing Your Car

Organizing Your Car

Before kids my car was always spotless, okay most of the time…… Okay, sometimes. Anyways, after kids my car became the keeper of books, sports gear, sippy cups, gold fish crumbs, and McDonald’s toys. You to? Well no worries! I am here to help! I have some great tips and ideas to help you keep your vehicle clean, organized, and clutter free.

Let’s start with the sports gear, whether it be your sports gear, or the kiddos, chances are it gets thrown randomly in the trunk. Then when you head off to the the grocery store the grocery bags get thrown on top of the sports gear, then 2 weeks later when you are off to Tennis you find a random can of Spaghetti O’s under your tennis racket that feel out of your grocery bag.
