P&G Spring Cleaning Giveaway

Disclosure: I am a P&Gmom. As part of my affiliation with this group I receive products and special access to P&G events and opportunities. The opinions on this blog are my own.

It was a long winter, but spring is finally here. We've had a few chilly days this spring, but for the most part, all the winter gear has been put away—far, far away, in the depth of the basement so I don't have to remember how bad it was and how long it lasted. I mean, really—it was never-ending!

Spring means making a positive change to our routine and spring makes it easier getting out the door in the mornings—no need for the kids to put on their snow pants and boots, and no more snowy mess in the entrance way. I love slipping on my favourite heels without having to worry about getting cold or ruining my shoes.

Spring cleaning is my favourite, too—seriously. I love to de-clutter, and change things up with new home accents and accessories, and I love to clean, really clean, all the rooms in my house. Especially my closet, so I can make room, naturally, for all the new colourful clothes I'll be buying to welcome spring back into my life. (Shopping is an essenetial part of spring cleaning, you guys!)

To make spring cleaning easier for you, I'm giving away an awesome Spring Cleaning Prize Pack worth $85 (thanks to P&G) that includes the essentials you'll need to get started:

  • Dawn Ultra Original
  • Dawn Original
  • Bounty Basic
  • Cascade Platinum with Dawn
  • Febreze Air Effects
  • Swiffer WetJet Starter Kit
  • Swiffer WetJet Cleaner
  • Swiffer SwetJet Pad


  • With these products you can start your spring cleaning to make your home fresh and spring-ready. Out with the old and in with the new, right? Open all the windows, and get started.

    Here are some Spring Cleaning Tips:

    Kitchen: The kitchen is where we always gather; even though I'm no master chef, the kitchen, eating area, and family room are all conneted and are the busiest parts of our house. How to tackle kitchen cleaning? Easy! Put things away as you use them, and keep the counters clean and clear of things that don't belong on them. Here are some kitchen essentials you should always have stored under your sink and in your kitchen:
    Keep it simple: Store things where you use them. For instance, pots and pans should be stored near the stove, and smaller items should be grouped together—like bakeware in one drawer, wooden spoons together, and so on. Keep a pen or pencil and a writing pad near your phone, too, and keep an orderly filing system for your mail and school information coming in from your children. If you know where everything is and where everything is supposed to go, you'll have an easier time living in a clutter-free home.

    Organizing Closets: Organzing closets is a great first step to organizing your home. Donate clothes you know you won't wear again, toss old boots that have seen better days, and de-clutter. I's hard to give up clothes that have been sitting in your closet for months, but realistically, if an entire year has gone by and you haven't worn certain clothes, it's time to let them go. For the clothes that you do keep, make sure they're clean and ready to be worn again. Hello, Tide! (My favourite P&G product I could not live without.)

    De-clutter: This can be really hard to do, especially if you like holding onto things like I do. Just get rid of things you don't need or use. Donate, give away, and toss—make these three piles as you're going through all the things in your home, from clothes to shoes to books and toys. It'll feel good to donate, and your house will be less cluttered, too—win-win!

    Phew... now after all your hard work getting your home clean and ready for spring, it's time to celebrate with a drink on the patio—cheers!

    I love seeing the grass turn green, the tulips bursting out of the ground, the chirps of the cardinal and the robin and smell of worms when it rains!

    I love it that my littles (3 and 5) take such delight in it. They're thrilled by the little flowers popping out, and stomping in puddles.

    I love being able to open the windows and get my summer clothes out. Being able to take walks again in the woods, and park. Having bon fires and friends hanging out again! And I love all the spring rains and thunderstorms. But the best part about spring is that winter is over! :)
