Can you believe it’s August already?

Summer is coming to an end and I’ve been busy booking last minute travel plans, going on picnics and to the beach to soak up the last of the warm weather. 

I’m also using this time to get myself organized before the busy fall season strikes.

One thing that helps me stay organized even when my schedule gets hectic is Grove Collaborative. Grove makes creating a healthy, beautiful home effortless and affordable. They hand-select the best natural products and deliver them (carbon offset) right to your doorstep, on your schedule. Grove has you covered for all your cleaning and organization needs as you head into fall. 

From now until August 31, you can get this free Mrs. Meyer’s trio + walnut scrubber sponges + hand sanitizer spray when you place your first order of $20 from Grove using my link [insert your referral link]. As an added bonus, you’ll get a free Grove enamel caddy when you spend $39 or more!

If you’re already a customer, you’ll get a free set of Grove walnut scrubber sponges — perfect for indoor and outdoor cleanups. 

Then, check out my end-of-summer organization tips below:

  • As you’re heading out to backyard barbecues or the community pool, be sure to toss the Grove hand sanitizer spray in your bag to stay clean wherever you go! 
  • Here’s a trick to keep the summer vibes going: Stock up on hand soap in summery scents! Mrs. Meyer’s hand soap comes in garden-inspired scents like lavender, lemon verbena, and honeysuckle.
  • During the hot summer months, I love to have the windows open and let in fresh air. Unfortunately, it also lets in dust and pollen. Mrs. Meyer’s multi-surface spray works beautifully for cleaning screens, wiping down walls and countertops, and even spot-cleaning wood and tile floors. 
  • To make sure your beach towels and bathing suits last for many summers to come, it’s important to get rid of any stains and odors before you put them away for the season. I use Method laundry detergent packs because they’re great at removing spills and sunscreen stains! 
  • Even though it’s hot out, now is a good time to start pulling fall clothes out of storage. Try everything on, make repairs if needed, and give it all a good wash to freshen things up. I use Grove wool dryer balls instead of dryer sheets because they reduce drying time and naturally soften clothes without harmful chemicals. Plus, they last for over 1,000 loads! For a lovely natural scent, I add a few drops of Grove orange essential oil to the dryer balls.
    • Before you put away your camping gear and folding chairs, give everything a good wipe-down with Mrs. Meyer’s multi-surface spray and a microfiber. You’ll thank yourself next summer! 
    • August is the perfect time to wrap up the summer gardening season. Take some time to clean things up, collect any seeds you want to save for next year, and put away your garden tools so you don’t have to hunt for them in the spring. And don’t forget, when you spend $39 or more, you’ll get a free Grove enamel caddy —  perfect for organizing your pruning shears, trowel, gloves, and kneeling board.
    • If you’re like us, your grill gets a workout during the summer.  All you need is a bucket of soapy water and Grove walnut scrubber sponges to make it look like new. The scouring side (made from crushed walnuts!) is perfect for scrubbing the grill grates, while the soft side is great for wiping down the burners. 
    • There’s still plenty of time for lounging on the patio! Be sure to grab some Murphy’s Naturals mosquito repellent balm and candles from Grove to keep the bugs away.
    • Bonus tip: If you’re feeling stressed about how much money you spent this summer, there are some easy ways to get back on track. I find that buying household and personal care products through Grove is less expensive than the grocery store, and you can often score free products with a minimum purchase. Plus, once you’ve submitted your Grove order, you’ll be signed up for the free 60 day VIP trial. For 60 days, you’ll save even more with free shipping, free gifts, price matching, exclusive sales and personal service.
