Get a FRESH start this spring with a free Caldrea gift set

There is something so lovely about spring. The flowers, fresh leaves, sunnier skies.

It also ushers in this unexplainable desire to clean.

They say there are two types of people: the organized type and the clean type. I fall deeply and fully into the organized camp. Give me a tidy house over freshly mopped floors any day of the week.

That’s not to say that I don’t like a clean house, because I truly do. I just don’t particularly love to clean.

True story: when I was pregnant with Audrey (our fourth baby, who is now 7), I developed that super weird disorder called Pica in which I was compelled to eat non-nutritive things like chalk and cleaning supplies. My mouth would literally water if I smelled lemon soft scrub or watched gymnasts on tv clap the extra chalk off their hands. It’s an indication of a mineral deficiency which I had big time during pregnancy.

Thankfully I no longer have that strange urge to eat chemicals, but I do really enjoy good-smelling cleaning supplies.

And while I may not be scrubbing my floors regularly, I am scrubbing dishes every day and I figure that’s a pretty good place to keep that delicious smelling soap.

I’m all about making the every day more beautiful and simple pleasures like good smelling soap, a neutral scrub brush and favorite dish towel seriously make my day happier.

Fun bonus: the company where I get my soap and scrub brush is giving away a Caldrea gift set for FREE! 

Right now, when you sign up for Grove and place your first order of $20 you’ll get this SUMMER STYLE set for free:

  • Free Caldrea hand soap
  • Free Caldrea dish soap
  • Free Grove Collaborative Bubble Up brush and dish set
  • Free shipping

Existing Grove subscriber? You get a set of my favorite walnut scrub sponges! Click here to claim your gift.

I had been eyeing Grove for over a year – always thinking about ordering but never pulling the trigger.

And then last fall I just couldn’t resist the free gift and jumped in.

Coming up with what to buy for $20 has been so much easier than I expected. The things we regularly use in our household are available at comparable or even lower prices and it saves me a trip to Target (which, honestly is a money trap for me so reducing the number of trips there is a good thing!)

Here are a few of our go-to’s:

walnut scrubber sponges I’m a born and raised sponge user. Some people are grossed out by them, but they work so well to wipe counters and scrub dishes. I throw them in the dishwasher every once in a while and am not shy about tossing them once they look dingy and start in on that nasty dirty sponge smell.

rubber gloves To save my hands and nails, I wear rubber gloves to wash dishes. It makes me feel super old, but whatever. It works.

bubble up refill brush We use our bubble up brush on a daily basis and I love that I can order just the brush to switch out when the old one is looking a bit frayed.

accure cleansing towelettes I buy these for our nearly-teenage son to do my part at preserving his soft baby skin. Will these keep teenage breakouts away? I don’t know. But it’s worth a shot.

seventh generation disinfecting wipes For the counter, the bathroom, spills on the floor … these wipes make clean up super easy.

tom’s toothpaste How do my kids go through so much toothpaste? Whatever it takes to keep the cavities away.

dr. bonner’s all-one toothpaste What originally caught my eye was the graphic packaging. What’s keeping us using this toothpaste are the natural ingredients and subtle cinnamon flavor. It comes in peppermint and anise, too.

facial tissue box Allergies strike our family hard this time of year. Tissues are essential.

parchment paper This brown parchment is so charmingly old-fashioned. I use it for baking, mostly, but wouldn’t it be so great for wrapping sandwiches for a picnic?

accure shampoo + conditioner Smells great, works great, sulfate and paraben free.

The great thing about Grove is that I’m not stuck with any of these items and can always order more, less, try new products or keep to a regular order. They make it super easy.

Want to give it a try?

When you click over to Grove, you’ll be asked a few questions and your cart will auto-fill with $20 worth of products. Go ahead and take their suggestions or browse your favorite brands or household items and choose your own (but I’m going to highly suggest those sponges).

To receive the FREE Caldrea hand soap, dish soap, and bubble up brush set, your order needs to be a minimum of $20.

I hope you find Grove to be a helpful service that saves you time, money and keeps you happy when you’re doing daily household things like dishes and laundry and brushing your teeth. #simplepleasures

    Emily, what soap do you use in the Bubble Up set?

    • emily May 18, 2017 at 10:35 am #

      I just squeeze in a little dishsoap and add a bit of water!

  2. Lynne May 11, 2017 at 5:49 pm #

    Random-where did you get that dish towel with the tassels? I love it!

    Thank you for offering the Grove freebies through your link. :) I just recently started ordering from Grove, and actually got a package today. I LOVE getting natural household goodies in the mail! ;)

    Random question; what kind of plant is that on your counter?

    • emily May 11, 2017 at 10:20 am #

      This is a maidenhair fern. My favorite!

  5. Pamela Larkin May 10, 2017 at 6:48 pm #

    Are your soaps paraben free & essential oil fragrance?

    What kind of plant is that you have on your counter?

    • emily May 11, 2017 at 10:21 am #

      This is a maidenhair fern – it is so delicate and pretty!

    As soon as I edited the order to include things I wanted to buy and took out some of the recommended items, it took away the free items. (Well, they’re still there, but it’s charging me for them.)

    • emily May 11, 2017 at 10:21 am #

      Hmm … do you still have $20 worth of product?

  8. Jamie May 10, 2017 at 10:18 am #

    Hi, random question, but what is the brand is your kitchen faucet? Is it Grohe? I LOVE it!

  9. Amanda May 10, 2017 at 7:53 am #

    I’m finally giving it a try. Thanks for sharing your offer!

    • emily May 10, 2017 at 9:19 am #

      You’ll love it!

  10. Jill T. May 10, 2017 at 7:30 am #

    Just placed my first order and can’t wait to get it! $20 of stuff we need anyway and no trip to Target where I would have spent waaaaaaay more than $20! Prices are very comparable and you get so much in freebies. And who can argue with FREE shipping!! So glad I signed up!

    • emily May 10, 2017 at 9:20 am #

      I was a little on-the-fence at first, but once I joined, I find grove to be such a great deal. I get the things I normally buy at better prices and it ships straight to me! Love it. Hope you enjoy it as well!

  11. Aviva Shaw May 9, 2017 at 9:34 pm #

    Just put my order in and they also threw in a free glass spray bottle along with all the other freebies! Bonus!

    • emily May 10, 2017 at 9:20 am #

      Ooooh, I love my glass spray bottle. I use it to spray all my plants :)

  12. Laura May 9, 2017 at 8:59 pm #

    Where did you buy your dish towels! 😍

  13. Elizabeth May 9, 2017 at 7:15 pm #

    I started using Grove the last time you did a sponsored post for them. I love it!!! I literally just got my latest order with my Ms Meyers cleaners (love the multi-purpose spray!) but am definitely gonna try out the caldrea stuff. Because I agree with you, Ms Meyers is a little perfumey. We just tried the peony scent and its lovely but a little much for cleaning counters lol
    Definitely going to get my sponges!!!

  14. Shelley May 9, 2017 at 1:00 pm #

    I am obsessed with all things from Grove. I love their line of items as well. And the best part is it ships right to my door for free. It definitely has made cleaning a more enjoyable chore.

  15. Ginny Mapes May 9, 2017 at 12:58 pm #

    So do like the Sea Salt Caldrea soap better than Mrs. Meyers? Just Wondering?

    • emily May 9, 2017 at 2:45 pm #

      I love both … but what I notice about Caldrea is that it is less perfume-y. The scents are purer (if that makes any sense at all). It is just a better quality product :) But I still switch back and forth.
