Simplify. That’s the name of my game these days. It was the “word” I chose in the new year. And I really have tried to incorporate a more simple routine around here. We’ve gotten rid of things and tried to downsize and simplify our household clutter. Still a HUGE work in progress, but letting go of stuff is awesome! We’ve said “no” to more things this year and that frees up time and helps with my stress levels and that is always a good thing. I’m one who gets easily overwhelmed and while I know that about myself, it’s not easy to fix. If I can free up time that is a huge deal for me. Since I always feel like I’m behind in everything. Behind in blogging, behind in homeschooling, behind in keeping up with laundry and the house. You know that feeling? Ugg I hate it.
I found that when I can find shortcuts for things, I’m all over that! I have a ton of Pinterest boards dedicated to time saving tips and life hacks. I LOVE THEM! (Maybe I should spend less time on Pinterest? Nah, that’s not it.) 🙂
One life hack I’ve completely embraced is NOT IRONING! For a while I decided to just not buy clothes that need to be ironed. But, that isn’t always possible. And when you leave cotton t-shirts in the dryer for too long, even they get wrinkled. Mmmm. Problem. Because I HATE ironing. And I don’t want to rewash the load either. Enter Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus! For real. This wrinkle spray is so easy to use (my kids can do it) and it reduces wrinkles and helps keep your clothes looking neat without the hassle of ironing. IRONING LIFE HACK!
And the bonus of this stuff is that it not only refreshes fabric and removes wrinkles, it smells amazing and eliminates odors and static!
I have the kids spray the curtains, rug and couch cushions periodically. Especially after I cook bacon! What!? Because I love the smell of bacon…. while I am cooking bacon and while I am eating bacon. But not days after the meal. Gross. BACON LIFE HACK!
And I use it on the kids swim towels. I wash them every week, but in between the pool and the house the wet swim stuff gets all hot in the car and the smell gets baked in! Nasty. But, we swim every day, I can’t wash all that stuff every day. Downy Wrinkle Releaser Plus is perfect for in between the washes! SWIM TOWELS LIFE HACK!
We are traveling to a few places this summer. This stuff is great for travel. I’m going to throw one in the ole’ suitcase. I want to be fresh and wrinkle free on my vaca! VACATION LIFE HACK!
