1. HAVE A HOME FOR EVERYTHING — AND LABEL IT.

Having a clean home really doesn’t take all that much time and/or effort.

The secret is to have bins and baskets strategically located around your house where you can easily throw everything that is currently cluttering your space.

So, take a day to hit up your local dollar store and go nuts buying baskets, bins, and containers – truly, you can never have too many.

Then, grab your label maker or attach cute chalkboard labels and label your bins!

After, go room to room and place these baskets, bins, and/or containers in places that aren’t all that visible, such as under your coffee table, end tables, in closets, and in drawers.

This way, when you quickly need to tidy up your space, you can easily throw all the toys in their toy bin, blankets in the blanket basket, and remotes/controllers in their tray – and voila, instant clean home!

This simple – and cheap – trick has made keeping my home clean and clutter free so much easier.

It’s also helped my four-year-old to lend a helping hand since he can easily recognize where his toys need to go.

SO simple, right?!

2. HAVE A DAILY “CLEAN HOME” ROUTINE — A SIMPLE ONE.

A quick and simple way to always have a clean home is to dedicate a small portion of time each day to cleaning.

Now, I don’t mean you need to wash the windows and walls.

Simply make sure clutter is back in their homes and dirty surfaces are wiped down.

Each day, I also like to make sure our beds are made (or at least the covers are thrown up in an attempt to have it looking made) and the dishes are done.

(And if you know anything about my family – our dishes are never done…hey, progress takes time.)

I like to do this quick ‘clean home’ cleaning routine at the end of each day after the kids are in bed and not making more messes.

It takes me about fifteen to thirty minutes to quickly move from room to room tidying up.  Sometimes I break out the vacuum, but not always.  Save that for your more in depth weekly cleaning routine!

3. LIVE MINIMALLY — AKA, GET RID OF UNECCESARY CLUTTER.

I never really thought of my family as living minimally until I really took the time to look around my home.

For the most part, we really try to only keep necessary items in our house as to not add to the clutter that a family of four brings with it.

That means if it isn’t serving a purpose any longer – it’s got to go.

About four times a year (once each season), go through each room in your house and ‘spring clean.’

You can do this with toys, electronics, movies, games, clothes, and the list goes on!

The fewer things you have cluttering up your space, the fewer things you have to worry about cleaning.

Let me tell you, for example, having fewer clothes has never made my life so much easier.

Picking out an outfit in the morning is 100x simpler when I don’t have to rummage through five billions pairs of jeans and tee shirts trying to find the perfect outfit.

The same goes for our kids’ wardrobes – making dressing themselves much easier!

This with also decrease the amount of laundry you need to do, and amen to that!

Think about trying a minimalist approach to life – you may be surprised at how much you enjoy it!

4. ENCOURAGE YOUR KIDDOS TO HELP OUT — WHILE TEACHING THEM RESPONSIBILITY.

Have a clean home, take some stress off of yourself, and teach your kids responsibility by creating chore charts so they can help out around the house!

We just made our four-year-old his first chore chart – I know, a long time coming – and it has helped us immensely!

Not only is he able to feel more independent and learn how to do things on his own, but he takes certain tasks off of our plates so we can free up time for other things.

Included in his chore chart is things such as getting himself dressed in the morning, making his bed, cleaning up his toys, etc.

We also got a little creative with his chore chart and added in eating his fruits and veggies each day, since this is a chore all in itself.

As a reward, he earns five minutes of screen time for each accomplished chore each day.

There are tons of chore charts floating around Pinterest that cater to different ages that you can easily print and hang on your fridge!

Or, like we did, I simply wrote up the chart on a blank sheet of paper, inserted it into a plastic binder sleeve and can now use dry erase markers on it each week!

It hangs on our fridge, and let me tell you, being able to check off his chores with the ‘magic’ marker is motivation enough for our little guy to do his chores!

5. DON’T FORGET TO SEASONALLY CLEAN — NOT JUST IN THE SPRING.

Along with cleaning out your clutter each season, you should also be deep cleaning your home each season.

I find that roughly four times a year is plenty to keep most things looking clean with little upkeep throughout the weeks.

Take this time to dedicate a little extra love to each room in your home.

Think about making a checklist for each room (or find one on Pinterest)!

Seasonally cleaning will include bigger jobs like washing the windows and walls, moving around furniture in order to clean beneath, washing couch cushions and pillows, and of course getting rid of things you no longer use and/or need.

Season cleaning are a few of my favorite days of the year – when you get to open the windows and prepare for a new and exciting time in the year 🙂

And, only having to do these things four times a year is a total score!

What do you do to keep your home always looking fresh and clean??  Do you have any favorite checklists or products you use!?

HAPPY CLEANING,

Ah, the spa!  

Such a luxury!

Facials, massages, candles, oh my!

It can’t just be my daydream to be relaxing at the spa, being doted on all day long.

But who’s got the time or the money to be spending on weekly spa trips?

Not me!

So, does feeling like a queen need to come at a luxury cost?

I think not!

Believe it or not, you can create your own spa day from the comfort of your home – at half the cost.

Check out all these awesome DIY recipes for the best, and cheapest, *at-home* spa day ever.

CAME HERE FOR THE GOODIES?  YOUR FREEBIE LIES AT THE END OF THIS POST 😉

I’m guessing you could use a day off, eh?

I know that I do!

We all work super hard and we deserve – nay need – to spend time nurturing our mental health.

Mental health is super important and to avoid burnout, try to give yourself a break every now and then to simply relax.

Treat yourself to a face mask, an at home mani/pedi, and pour yourself a glass of wine.

We all may not be able to take long luxurious vacations whenever we want, but we can treat ourselves to an at-home spa day of our dreams!

Treating yourself to a day at the spa doesn’t have to be expensive…and you can stay in your comfy pj’s all day 😉

Try out some new DIY recipes – pamper yourself edition.

You’ll be left feeling relaxed, less stressed, and oh so luxurious!

1. INFUSED WATER

What better way to kick off your spa day than with some refreshing and SUPER good for you infused water!?

Not only are infused waters nutritional and delicious, but they also have great detoxifying properties.

Here are a few of my favorite infused water recipes:

  • Strawberry Lime:  My favorite!  Just slice some strawberries and lime and top with a sprig of mint!  Try with sparkling water for an even fancier experience!
  • For better digestion: Cucumber + Strawberry + Lime!
  • For clear, glowing skin: Cucumber + Lemon + Mint!
  • Citrus Twist: Lemon + Lime + Orange!

Simply add to a glass of crushed ice and water and enjoy all day!

CHECK OUT MORE RECIPES HERE!

2. HOMEMADE FACE MASKS

Fair warning, I have an obsession with face masks.

There’s an entire drawer in my bathroom dedicated just to face masks.

I know this may seem excessive, but when I have a spa day, I go big. (In the way of face masks, at least.)

You can never have too many face masks, amiright?

To get started, let’s make sure your skin is squeaky clean. First, remove makeup with your favorite oil cleanse and then follow up by washing your face with your facial cleanser of choice.

I love using organic coconut oil to remove my makeup and Cetaphil cleanser.

Now, in order to get rid of all that built up dead skin – gross, I know – exfoliate your face with this DIY exfoliating mask.

DIY OATMEAL & HONEY MASK FOR EXFOLIATION:

What you’ll need: oatmealmanuka honey, favorite carrier oil (I use coconut oil)

How you make it:

Yay for baby-bottom smooth skin!

Too lazy for DIY?  I feel you 😉 Here’s a great alternative!

In order to make the most of your next face mask– yes we’re doing more than one, (it’s spa day!), try steaming your face.

You’ve never steamed your face before?! Where have you been living!?  Under a rock, clearly.

Under a rock, clearly.

Start off by boiling a pot of water. Once boiling, place the pot on a towel on your table, drape a towel over your head and hold near the pot to steam your face. After about 5-10 minutes, your pores should be nice and open and ready for your next face mask!

This is when I apply a skin detoxifying mask since our pores are open.

Try this DIY clay mask to purge and shrink your pores!

DIY CLAY DETOX MASK:

WHAT YOU’LL NEED: 

How you’ll make it –

  • Mix together two parts clay, one part water or ACV, 1/2 part coconut oil, few drops lemon essential oil
  • Use a flat makeup brush to spread evenly on face and let harden 10-20 minutes (this mask is intense, you might feel your face tingling – so normal)
  • Remove mask with warm water and face cloth (warning – this mask is difficult to remove (worth it) and will leave your skin slightly red)

Apply favorite moisturizer…or your next face mask 😉

NOT ENOUGH TIME FOR DIY?  ME EITHER 😉 CHECK OUT THIS GREAT ALTERNATIVE!

After the detoxifying face mask has pulled all the grime out of my skin, I like to apply a renewing mask to add moisture and essential vitamins to my skin.

(I have the driest skin on planet earth…*eyeroll emoji*)

AVOCADO & HONEY RENEWING FACE MASK:

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

HOW YOU MAKE IT:

  • Mash avocado, then mix together two parts avocado, one part manuka honey, few drops carrier oil (coconut oil), few drops essential oil(s) (lemon)
  • Use a flat makeup brush to apply evenly to skin
  • Let sit for 10-30 minutes, then rinse off with warm water

Pat skin dry and nooowww you can apply your favorite moisturizer 😉 

RATHER NOT PUT FOOD ON YOUR FACE?  THIS ALTERNATIVE IS AVOCADO FREE 😉

3. DRY BRUSHING

This isn’t necessarily a DIY, but it is a super fun and healthy addition to your ultimate pamper routine.

Just pretend this is the point in your spa-day that you’d be getting a massage 😉

You can find a dry brush for your body on Amazon for super cheap!

And the benefits are great, especially before you soak in the tub with your DIY bath bomb.

Just follow the instructions here!

4. DIY BATH BOMBS

Aren’t bath bombs awesome?

What better way to spice up spa day while also fulfilling your kid-like self?

Plus, they’re made up of crazy good ingredients that’ll make your skin super smooth!

Don’t get me wrong, I love a good Lush bath bomb.

But did you know how easy it is to make your own bath bomb?

Relax in the tub with your DIY bath bomb while your detoxifying face mask does it work!

Find some awesome recipes, here!

5. HAIR MASKS

Masks just aren’t for your face, they’re for your hair, too.

While you’re soaking in the tub, letting all your stresses fly away, soak your hair in a luxurious combination of oils and nutrients!

Rinse it out and feel the silky goodness that is now your hair.

I like using a hair mask at least once a week to keep my hair strong and healthy!

My favorite DIY hair mask is so simple it only has one ingredient – coconut oil

(Can you tell how much I love coconut oil??  It’s so affordable and has countless uses!)

Simply apply a generous amount of coconut oil from roots to ends, tie up in a top knot, and let it do it’s magic while you enjoy your relaxing bath!

I hope you remembered to pour yourself a glass of wine before you hopped in 😉

INTERESTED IN OTHER DIY HAIR MASKS?? FIND THEM HERE!

6. BATH NECESSITIES

What would a relaxing bath be without some luxurious bath accessories?

Leave your skin feeling super smooth with this DIY sugar scrub!

*Sugar scrubs make super awesome gifts, too…combine with some of the other DIY spa day recipes and pass along the gift of relaxation!*

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

HOW YOU MAKE IT: Mix together two parts sugar, two parts coconut oil (if you like your scrubs more coarse, use less oil), few drops of each essential oil

Hop in the tub and massage into your body to leave your skin feeling smoooooth!

Ever thought of making your own body butter?

You should!  Especially for spa day 😉

Moisturize your skin post-bath with this DIY body butter!

7. MANI & PEDI

It wouldn’t be a day at the spa without scheduling in a mani/pedi!

Grab your favorite nail polish and treat yourself to an at-home manicure and pedicure!

I know, there’s no DIY product to make…but, in regards to your nails you are ‘doing it yourself.’ 😉

In the market for some new nail polish?  Check out Kathleen Lights’ new line of nail polishes!  She has the best colors and it lasts soooo long on my nails!

‘Cause is there really anything worse than chipping nail polish?

If you’re feeling super fancy, you could take it a step further and use an at-home gel manicure kit to really prolong the lifespan of your nail polish!

8. DETOX SMOOTHIE

Ah, so relaxed.  What a day.

I wish I could do my pamper routine every day of the week. *sigh*

Wind down from your day of relaxation with a detoxifying smoothie.

Detox smoothies don’t just have to be used in dieting.  Detox smoothies have great benefits and it is always good to flush your body of unwanted toxins every now and again.

Find my go-to detox smoothie recipe, here!

Or, if you’re anything like me – you’ll likely be indulging in a pint of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream instead while watching some How I Met Your Mother.

9: BRAIN DUMP FOR MENTAL CLARITY

So, we just spent all day pampering ourselves and de-stressing our bodies with the ultimate DIY spa day!

Now it’s time to destress our minds!

Grab your planner or just a piece of paper to brain dump all your thoughts, concerns, and to-dos.

Then, sort your thoughts into smaller, more organized categories with checklists and action steps to stay productive and on track to accomplish your goals!

What better way to end our pamper routine than to put all our thoughts to rest for some much needed mental clarity?

Here’s to praying our totally and insanely relaxed state lasts past noon on Monday 😉

What’s your go-to strategy to feel less stressed and more productive?  Have any awesome DIY spa day recipes??  Comment below 🙂

Don’t forget your Spa Day Printable to write down all your DIY recipes!
