Let’s be honest. Cleaning your home is not the most enjoyable thing. Over the years I incorporated a few tips and tricks that can help the task of keeping our homes pristine easier. I am excited to share these tips with you today.

Use Non-traditional Cleaning Tools:  Instead of that not-so-attractive bucket to store your dirty dish cloths use a beautiful white bowl.  It is attractive and it functions.  It is also a great distraction from having to look at your dirty dish cloths.

Incorporating Motivating Colors: Often when we are shopping for our cleaning tools and supplies for our home, we are looking for items that are going to function for us. The function is very important, but I would also like to encourage you to think about the color of the cleaning tools that you buy. Color can inspire and motivate you. By choosing tools such as those beautiful teal colored cleaning gloves or beautiful cleaning brush you can enhance your desire to use these tools. I purchase my cleaning tools from the Grove Collaborative. They have the most amazing and beautiful tools.

Use beautiful cleaning supplies: I’m way more motivated to clean and do dishes if I have nice supplies that I look forward to using. For example, Mrs. Meyer’s hand soaps and dish soaps are made with essential oils and plant-derived ingredients, so they smell amazing and don’t irritate my skin. I love putting them in glass dispensers beautifully displayed beside my sink.

Here’s a way to save even more time creating a beautiful home: Sign up for Grove Collaborative. They’ve got you covered for all your kitchen and home essentials.  I have used their service for several and love it!

I love that Grove sends me a reminder before my shipment so I can double-check my pantry, add or delete any products right from my phone, and then forget about it. Since I made Grove part of my routine, I no longer have to remember to add dish soap to my shopping list or run to the drugstore to grab toothpaste. What a relief!

Conceal & Organize Beautifully: Organization is beautiful. To open your cleaning cabinet and see all of your cleaning supplies in an orderly fashion is an automatic solution to incorporating beauty into your cleaning routine. Even if your cleaning products vary and the bottles are not beautiful, if you have them organized it will bring beauty to that not so beautiful cleaning caddy.


In this video I share with you the above tips that I shared.

With the start of the New Year most of us are pumped to start all of those home organization projects.  I know I am definitely a part of that group.  As soon as January arrived I was ready to dive in and refresh my home.  I started with the kitchen.  The kitchen is one of my favorite spaces and I love staying on top of keeping it purged, fresh and beautiful (at least in my eyes).  A few months ago,  I shared my kitchen organization video with you on my At Home With Nikki YouTube channel.  I took you through all of my cabinets and drawers to show you how I had it organized.   I love having a kitchen that is well organized, and where everything has place.  My thought is one that a kitchen can function and be beautiful at the same time.

If you are on my Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, you may have already been on this kitchen refresh journey with me. I tried to share the spaces that I was working on each day. My thought is to do a little each day. It is amazing how much you can get accomplished when you break up a daunting task into a mini task.

The most challenging space in my kitchen to keep organized is the fridge. It gets so much use each day that I have to stay on top of it. The pantry is on my list of the second most challenging space to keep in order. No matter how much I purge my pantry, I can still find things that can be passed on to be a blessing to others before they expire. My pantry was itching for a purge. After the holidays I find so many items that I know I will most likely not use such as extra cans of cranberry sauce or an overabundance of vegetable stock. January is the perfect month for a kitchen refresh.

I must say that all in all this year’s refresh was a breeze.  There was minimal purging, and I stayed focused on the task of doing a little each day for one week.  I wish you all success with getting your home in order.

Blessings & Love
