Things I love more than I should

Don't worry--this isn't going to be a sappy post about loving my children more than life itself, though of course I do.

We have spent our weekend cleaning and catching up on laundry, so we've got no DIYing to post. I would, however, like to spread the love about a few household things that bring us a lot of joy by making life easier. This is not a sponsored post. I'd totally sell out for some scratch, but so far no one has offered. These are simply G-family staples.

Let's go at this cheap to fancy.

1. Finish Quantum PowerBall dishwasher tabs

Stick one in the liquid dispenser and call it good. Our dishwasher-ble glassware has never been so clear and gorgeous.

2. Fabreze Air Effects

This is a sensitive topic, but when has that stopped me from yapping? Occasionally there are disgusting smells emanating from the G house. Diapers, a sippy cup of milk lost under the couch for a couple weeks, tiny man feet. I don't think you all need me to go on. Fabreze Air Effects combats it *all*. My fave is "linen and sky." What could smell fresher?! 

3. Janitorial dust mop

This isn't the exact one we have, but it's close. I picked ours up at Home Depot on an in-the-mood-to-spend-money whim and have never regretted it. BABs*, as I call her, is a daily player in the G house.
4. simplehuman's smudge-proof stainless trash can

Who would have thought a container that collects garbage could make life fabulous? It closes quietly, it's easy to wipe down, and best of all, it doesn't show fingerprints. A mother must have invented this because I'm not sure why anyone else would assume kids love to touch trash cans. WTH, kids? Freaking weirdos.

5. Roomba!

Oh iRobot 560 Roomba Vacuuming Robot, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways...

As long as Roomba is charged and his bristles are clean, he's ready to do the dirty work for us. And with 3800 square feet and four chickens, there is a *lot* of dirty work. He's also like the household pet my children can't have, thanks to my heinous asthma and allergies.

*SALTY LANGUAGE ALERT: big-ass broom

  1. Finish tabs rock my socks. And Roomba... oh, Roomba. What would I do without you?
