It’s no secret that I love organizing. I love making lists. I love anything that promises to make my life easier and more efficient. 

That’s why, within minutes of receiving this stylish, multi-functional enamel caddy from Grove Collaborative, I’d already thought of a reason to order two more!

LAST CHANCE….TODAY ONLY!

It’s also why I’m so excited to be a Grove Collaborative affiliate and share this free offer with you: When you place your first order of $20 from Grove Collaborative using my affiliate link http://influencer-tracking.grove.co/SF2gQ , you’ll get this free caddy filled with Mrs. Meyer’s dish soap, hand soap, and lotion — plus free shipping!   Last day is TODAY!

Caddies are perfect for neatly storing and carrying just about anything around your home. 

Of course, you could go the traditional route and fill it with multi-purpose spray, microfibers, a wand duster, Mrs. Meyer’s dish soap, and so on. But why stop there?

Here are five creative ways to use your Grove Collaborative caddy: 

1.Mini herb or succulent garden

I love the idea of a kitchen herb garden in an unconventional planter. Add a few inches of gravel or pebbles for drainage, then a layer of potting soil, and your plants. My favorite herbs to grow are basil, cilantro, and rosemary. Another benefit of the caddy: The handle makes it easy to carry your plants to the sink for watering!

  1. Garden tool organizer

Here’s a gardening hack for all my green thumb friends: Turn your Grove caddy into a garden tool organizer! Fill it with a cute pair of gloves, trowel, pruning shears, hand rake, and kneeling board. Easily carry your garden tools around the yard instead of running back and forth to the shed. When you’re done gardening, Meyer’s hand soap and lotion are perfect for pampering hardworking hands.

  1. Hair tool organizer

Low on storage space under the bathroom sink? Create a styling station with your hair dryer, brush, flat iron or curling iron, and products all within reach. 

  1. Dog toy holder

Your furry best friend will love this trick: Turn the caddy into a dog toy bin that matches your decor. Fill the caddy with tennis balls, stuffed animals, and other toys. Your pup can reach his own toys, and you won’t have to worry about stepping on a squeaky toy in the middle of the stairs!

  1. Ice chest

Raise your hand if you’re ready for patio season! This caddy is just the right size to hold ice and a few bottles of wine or lemonade. It’s easy to carry outside, and so much cuter than a plastic cooler. I also recommend adding Murphy’s Naturals mosquito repellent candles to your Grove order to keep summer pests away from your party!

Tell me, how will you use your Grove cleaning caddy? Don’t forget to grab your free set while supplies last. Here’s how:

  1. Sign up for Grove Collaborative here http://influencer-tracking.grove.co/SF2gQ . You will receive the Mrs. Meyers hand soap, Mrs. Meyers hand lotion, Mrs. Myers dish soap and white cleaning caddy for free when you sign up!

If you live or work in a small place, I am sure you will agree that there are two things that are a sure thing when it comes to small spaces.  One, every corner, of a small space is valuable real estate and two; it takes no time for small areas to become a mess.  A perfect example is my coffee/kitchen station in my office.   I wanted to do a mini makeover on our coffee station to give it a much needed deep cleaning and to have it function more like a breakfast station for myself and my team.  We have all been so busy that we have been doing a rush cleaning job at the end of the day.  Because this is a highly utilized area the coffee stains, my make-up markings and dust were taking over!  It was time to do a deep cleaning and quickly!

I am excited to announce that this blog post is sponsored by Mr. Clean.

As always Mr. Clean was right on time as I started this mini makeover journey.  I am so excited to share with you how fantastic the new Mr. Clean Magic Eraser with Durafoam works in tackling the impossible household stains.  It is the featherweight cleaning champ! The size alone is a selling point for me.  I do not have much space in my office kitchen area, and I love how light and compact this powerful multi-tasker is.  It is my must-have all around my home and office especially in those hard to clean spaces such as the kitchen and bathroom.   Whether a burnt-on stove top mess or bathtub filled with scum the Magic Eraser with Durafoam has my back!

Now that I had my cleaning buddy in hand I was ready to tackle our coffee bar area.  One of the spots that I could not wait to handle was our coffee maker.  It was disgusting!  It gets dirty so quickly, and luckily it took me all of 15 seconds to get it clean with my Mr. Clean Magic Eraser with Durafoam!   I love that once I cleaned the coffee maker, I could rinse off the Magic Eraser and keep going.

Next, it was time to hit our drawer which became a catch-all for coffee items.  I cleared all of the things and transformed it into our oatmeal drawer.  Now we have a place to come and prepare a quick breakfast instead of running to McDonald’s every morning.

You always can find where I have been if you follow my make-up stain trail.  My make-up markings were all over the cabinets, and this can look awful.  I now secretly keep a  Mr. Clean Magic Eraser with Durafoam tucked away to rub away these markings quickly.

Now that I had the coffee area cleaned to perfection, it was time to implement a few new touches for a complete refresh.  I started by adding some beautiful white bowls in a basket so that the team could quickly prepare their oatmeal in the morning.  Plus, we do not have much storage place, so the basket provides a beautiful way to display the bowls and coffee cups. When setting up space, I wanted to make sure that all items were easy to grab so that it saved everyone time in the morning and made it extremely convenient.  We now have a water unit in the lobby that provides hot water which is perfect!

I removed the canisters that were on the counter and simplified things by purchasing little white sugar holders which saves space and makes it easier to grab a packet of sugar when needed.

We now have the perfect morning go-to here at the office.  It is inviting now that I have deep cleaned and tweaked it to function as both a place to get that must-have coffee in the morning and a place where my team has the ability to grab breakfast at the office.

You can find the all-new Mr. Clean Magic Eraser with Durafoam at grocery, retail, home improvement, e-commerce, club and mass merchandise stores nationwide.  Click here to learn more about this cleaning must-have.

Have a beautiful day!  -Nikki

As children we dreamed of the day when the last school bell would ring for the year, summer had finally arrived. Now, as adults, we no longer wait for that bell, we wait for the moment we get to punch out at the end of the day, but what if when we walked into the office this summer we were overwhelmed with the luscious smells of our childhood? It is my belief that the workplace should be a place that is motivating and filled with inspiration. Scents inspire me all the time, especially in the workspace. I love to challenge friends to make their work environment a place that they can enjoy going to each day. In tomorrow’s video on my YouTube channel, I share with you my top tips to bringing summer scents of summer of motivation to your workplace.

My friends at the Grove collaborative are always taking care of my friends and this month has created the perfect summer bundle to help you experience that summertime joy right in your office.

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.

professional organizing services summerville

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.

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
