Lately.

Hello friends, we are back on [blog] track. 🙂

I’ve been trying to find little joys in some “not so common” things for myself.

I decided to place a Grove Collaborative order (I haven’t since we moved to the house) and get a few Mrs. Meyers products to make cleaning more “fun.”103967499_10104211662671110_1816251689879515529_nNow if you know me, I love cleaning. But being home practically 24/7, I needed to jazz up my cleaning with some “fancy” stuff.

As a minimalist, this is not something I care for, but with the pandemic it was an extra cost that just made cleaning [and being at home] more enjoyable.103470431_10104211662785880_6701038519289789779_nI got the rosemary multi-surface spray and let me tell you, this is my new favorite scent. Basil is my usual go to (mint is great too), but Rosemary took first place. 101823292_10104204581322190_7234160605182033920_nI was bummed they didn’t have dish or hand soap for it, so I opted for the Fresh Cut Grass scent since it’s a Grove exclusive. 101787512_10104204581985860_9186351454577754112_nThe smell is okay but I felt it was too strong.

Definitely not one of my favorites.

I ended up getting these walnut scrubber sponges for free. I find these sponges to be really good quality. However, a cheaper alternative are these sponges. 83242873_10104204581417000_6420615948742426624_nThe Scotch-Brite sponges are great quality as well and last a long time. I wash them every few days to get them to last even longer.

I also snagged this cream cleanser for the bathtub. I haven’t used it just yet, so I’ll let y’all know how it is later. 😉101110725_10104204581706420_7782333603362373632_nMy kiddos love trying new toothpaste and they are a fan of strawberry.101790130_10104204581601630_6568875054409449472_nI saw this one at Grove and had to snag it. At $4.49 it was a bit more expensive then our usual go to, but I did notice at Target it was $3.99.

Only my oldest liked it and the twins didn’t care for it one bit. I tried it out myself and compared to the Tom’s, the strawberry “taste” is stronger.

Lastly, I found this soap on sale.101843680_10104204581237360_142291270084067328_n Lately I’ve been a fan of using “fancy” soap. This cedar and sage bar soap smells amazing and I like that it has oatmeal in it for exfoliating.


And that’s a wrap!
