Home Survival Kit Giveaway


Welcome to 2013!!  It is going to be a lucky year:-)

I know that with the holidays behind us, I have begun purging  my house.  I want this to be the year that I make our house our own. 

I need to lose a lot of “stuff”, and I am sure there are others out there who are in the same boat as me.  I have been picking small areas and cleaning them out, getting rid of things, and I feel such a sense of accomplishment when it is complete. 

I was sent a great Home Survival Kit, from Proctor and Gamble, to review (and even one to giveaway!).  Every single item in the kit is something that I have used and I really have grown to love. 

The Febreze has come in handy both in my house (the bathroom, in particular;-) and in my van.  I really love the Febreze Car Vent Clip.  A friend got into my van one day and made the comment that it smelled like “15 dryers had been opened at once”!  I never really realized how much I loved the smell of Fresh Linen…lol.

My kids were thinking that it would be great fun to use the Swiffer Wet Jet pads, while they were attached to their feet;-) Brings a whole new perspective to cleaning…

And I just love the candles…I even shared one with my parents!


The Home Survival Kit includes products from Swiffer, Cascade, Mr. Clean, Febreze, and Dawn.

This giveaway is open to Canada only. 
It will end on January 12, at midnight EST.

  1. well when the kids were really young I had larger rubbermaid totes but these days I have smaller ones for them, both are in their late teens so instead of just tossing everything into one totes, they actually seperate things

  3. I WISH I had a best organizing tip, but I also have 5 children (ages 2-18) and am pretty disorganized about most things. I do keep a notebook on my desk where I write down the things I have to remember, but that's about it lol

  44. My best organizing tip --

    To declutter your closet I use the 2 yr rule. If you haven't worn it in the past two years, you won't wear it. Donate the clothing so others can benefit.

  119. My best organizing tip is to commit to do just one thing every day. Clean out a drawer or a shelf of a cupboard etc. It is not such a big undertaking if you just take it one day at a time instead of spending a week or 2 weeks to do everything at once. That makes it too much of a chore.

  142. Label! I use photo labels for the kids toys, each child has their own mitts/hat box with their names ect. If the kids know where their things go they are more likely to put it away which helps me stay organized!
