3 Steps to Get Your Home from Disaster to Doable.

lampe berger

Housekeeping is not my strong suit but I am making an effort to keep up with it. Working from home you would think that I had all the time in the world to clean but in all honesty the mess is winning.

With my husband injured I am finding it really hard to keep up with everything that needs to be done. If I sit down to work then the kids destroy the house and if I clean I don’t do work. It’s a vicious cycle right now and I am trying to find a happy medium…key word is trying. 

This weekend we had my youngest daughters birthday party and I had to put in some work to bring this house to a place where we could entertain.

Since I am pressed for time and resources I followed three very easy steps to get it from disaster to doable.

3 Steps to Get Your Home from Disaster to Doable.

Tackle the Tough Spots-For me this is the playroom and bedrooms. I enlisted in the help of the kids to put the toys away but did a quick wipe off surfaces, made the bed and vacuumed the rugs. Although there was no deep cleaning, having clean floors and a made be made all the difference…and ensured that we could keep the doors open to the rooms. 

Touch Everything Once-I read somewhere that you should touch items once and put them in their proper place. I had a bad habit of picking things up off of the floor and putting them on the counters or table. This doubled my work and added hours to my cleaning time as I then had to walk around putting everything away. Very discouraging when you are pressed for time and taking a minute here and there as I was cleaning to collect and put things in the right place from the get-go made the whole process much less painful.

Light The Lampe Berger-It would take weeks to properly go through everything and clean it well. That would not even help with the air quality in the house though. I always use our lamps to kill germs and make sure our house smells nice. Especially in cold season because our family of six can’t afford to get sick and when we had our family and friends over we sure didn’t want to get them sick.

Lampe Berger Fall 2016

This season Lampe Berger (website here) has not only new lamps but also a delightful assortment of liquids all inspired by South America.  I love the lamps I have and have not only amassed a collection of five for myself I have also been lucky enough to provide lamps for my MIL’s house as well as my SIL’s house. They are a beautiful way to purify the air, leave it lightly scented as well easy on the eyes.

First up is this beautiful Satin Pack lamp in red. Coming in a beautiful red matte this lamp reminds me of Christmas and it’s also the perfect addition to my house as we have red as an accent colour.

I believe that scents are a very personal thing. They have to power to jar our memories and transport us back in time to relive these good and sometimes bad experiences. For me lilies remind me of my walk to my OB appointments with my first born. Bonfires remind me of Poland somehow. I was four-years-old when I came to Canada and my memories of Poland are almost non-existant but that smell gives me a tingling feeling inside.

The Lampe Berger home fragrance fluids are so multi-dimensional that they are very easy to please even the most sensitive noses. New this season is Wild Berries- a tangy and intense blend of red fruit. You are expecting just that but the description says it all

Head notes: Pomegranate, blackcurrant, strawberry. Heart notes: Açai berries, blackcurrant, papaya. Bottom notes: Musk, red berries, vanilla.

Another new one that I was introduced to this month is Subtle Almond. This is a fragrance that I would never think would peak my interest until you smell it and read the description. It’s sweet and creamy and so nice on these cooler days where all I want to do is snuggle in front of the fire.

Head notes: almond, green aniseed. Heart notes: vanilla, hawthorn and jasmine. Bottom notes: sandalwood, musk, amber.

You can try out these scents in this Trio Pack of home fragrances and see if it sparks some memories of your own. If you would like some more information on Lampe Berger and all the lampes and home fragrance options you can do so here.
