Spring Into Cleaning

How excited were you to read Clean Mama's interview last Monday?!! Don't tell me I'm the only one out there that struggles to keep a clean and tidy house. Heh, and with three kids and a hubby working overtime to undo all my work, it's an uphill battle! 
I had the pleasure of starting Clean Mama's routine just over a month ago, so while we still have a ways to go, I have to say I am HUGELY impressed at the progress we have made as a family! Everyone is slowly learning to form tidy habits, picking up after themselves, and young to old everyone does their part. Yeah baby! Soon this home will be one well oiled machine! *psyched fist pump*  Becky, my house thanks you (and so does my sanity)!!
I have been using the Clean Mama printables and I love the Busy Mama kit, it is easy to use, and covers a wide range of must's that we often overlook. Oh, but then again I also love the Cleaning Kit Brights set! Oh I can't decide! Plus Clean Mama offers all kinds of free printables on her site. Okay, since this post is all about cleaning, if you (much like me) struggle with keeping a clean house I definitely recommend the Cleaning Kit Brights set, it is only $12, and it is great if you need something to keep you on track. Look, I have been lugging Weekly Cleaning Checklist from that kit around with helps massively!

Now that my house is getting a clean makeover, I have also started using all those cleaning tips that get pinned but not employed. You know what I'm talking about... you've done it too. So far, my favorite Pinterest tip is using a dish sponge wand to clean my shower! Blegh, I hated getting my hands wet and grimy cleaning the more!

My girls like using it too. This is one of my muchkins getting her scrub on! 

So if you read the interview with Clean Mama (if you didn't, read it here), then you know that she did not only offer great advice, but a GIVEAWAY!!! Are you doing your happy dance? Well you should be, because she is giving away her Clean + Organized Lifestyle Kit, a $65 value! Yep, I heard you say "um, yes please"... And look at what all it includes.

Oh, and guess what else. Even if you don't win, we all get to be winners... 
Becky has created a special 20% off coupon code off  for Home Made by Carmona readers!!! Yeah I know, I heard your high pitched "What!!", because her kits are already priced so awesomely, so yeah, dash over to her Etsy Store here and use this special code good off your entire order:  20HOMEMADE
We're all gonna have awesome houses. *satisfied sigh*
