Five Reasons to Save With Dryel

Disclosure: I am partnered with Dryel as a Dryel Ambassador, and I have received free products and compensation. I am proud and excited for this wonderful partnership and, as always, all thoughts and opinions are so very my own!

Do you have clothes that are dry clean only? Save yourself the time and money, and read all about the five reasons why Dryel is perfect for your busy life!

As you know, I’m proud to be a Dryel Ambassador.

These are products I have used and use in my daily life for years now. Now that the school year is officially underway, and we’re getting house renovations done AND inching closer to the holidays, we’ve had to sit down with our household budget a few times. One way we discovered that we really save money is by reducing the amount of dry cleaning services. Cassidy has a ton of clothes that need dry cleaning that he wears to work every day. I work at home, but love to dress up on weekends.

One major way to increase your household savings is to reduce your dry cleaning bills. That’s why I love Dryel’s at-home solution. You can buy the dry cleaning starter kit, the dry cleaning refills and the Dryel pen right at most local grocery stories and also online. You can see the Dryel website for available retailers. It saves both money and precious time.

It takes us a lot of time to go to the dry cleaner and back, as it’s located on a busy street at a busy intersection. I love that Dryel gives me the freedom to wear what I want, when I want it. I save time and money on delicate fabric maintenance, so Dryel is perfect for the busy parent or fashion guru on a budget! I think it’s probably perfect for nearly everyone! Since we already talked about how Dryel is a fraction of the cost of dry cleaners, here are five reasons to SAVE with Dryel.

1 – It uses the power of your own dryer to clean and deodorize clothing. Bet you didn’t know how cool your dryer is!

2 – The Dryel bag is reusable for up to 30 loads of laundry.

3 – It’s safe for most types of fabric, even the most delicate, hand-wash, and dry-clean-only items.

4 – Dryel refreshes clothes in 15 minutes and completely cleans them in only 30 minutes.

5 – The starter kit is so affordable, and available at retailers everywhere.

Plus, the Dryel Pen is something you’ll want!

The Dryel Pen is pretty amazing. It packs a LOT of punch, and is small enough to carry everywhere and to take with you when you’re traveling. That way you can wear your favorites on vacation! What’s better than that? This powerful pen works great on wools, silks, rayons, linens, cottons, and other special care fabrics. They also work on dry clean-only clothes, delicates, and hand washables. The soft touch applicator is gentle – and the scrubber works like an eraser to eliminate your stains. The Dryel On-The-Go Pen is cost-effective and eco-friendly, and has no harsh chemicals! Take it anywhere you go!

Everyday Moments: Five Daily Fall Bucket List Items

Everyone talks about a fall bucket list, and although I make a one every year, here are the five things I like to do DAILY. So much to enjoy! #ad #TeaProudly

Now, I like a fall bucket list as much as the next person!

Every year, we write one together. I think we all have individual fall bucket lists too. I like to use my weekends to schedule clients for fall foliage and holiday photos. I love road trips, apple pie with whipped cream, and to sometimes go up to northern New England to look for moose. The kids love the big New England States fair, our local jumping pillow, apple picking, Halloween decorating, corn mazes, mini golf, and to go for fall drives. They also like to go on moose expeditions.

I mean, naturally.

Fall is our time to shine. Winters are long and cold, but probably clean and shiny for many. Summers can be humid and buggy. Springs are often disappointing and rainy. Fall? It’s never disappointing or rainy or humid or muggy buggy. Not in October, anyway. And as much as I value the addition of a fall bucket list into our family schedule, I noticed lately how much I value the little things even more. I am a work hard/play hard person. Even though I work nonstop at home, I make my own schedule and can enjoy so many experiences both on weekends and weekdays. It’s the little pleasures, starting with the quiet time I have with a mug of hot tea and a good book. That’s high on my list! Are you interested in a daily tea too?

You can check out MY favorite. Hover over the (below) photo to click through to Walmart.com to buy it!


To me, and many others, fall is the season of “fresh starts.” I love the big and the bold and the weekend plans, but it’s also largely about our everyday lives. It’s about clean slates in the mornings, and doing all the things that make us feel GREAT. It’s about rituals and routines, and how to carve bits of happiness during hectic days. It’s these five daily experiences:

1 – Everyday, I have a GREAT cup of tea, while sitting by myself in the quiet of a fall day. I take in the sounds of the birds still in New England, the sound of the breeze in the changing trees, and the whoosh of the distant traffic on the road.

My hair is dark brown and not purple but yay for creative iPhone colors?

There’s a reason I Tea Proudly with Bigelow! It’s so much more than drinking tea – it’s an experience. It’s warm and fuzzy and soul-soothing in the middle of a busy work day. I love that it allows me to pause and to connect with other people, and with time to myself as well. Bigelow Tea has always been my #1 choice of tea and I have so many memories associated with the colorful boxes and the varieties. And fall is a memory-making and a memory-keeping time of year. It involves all senses.

I easily find Bigelow at Walmart while I’m on my weekly shopping trips.

I also Tea Proudly with Bigelow because I love the company itself as they’ve been making tea for three generations, and I’m a sucker for a family company. It’s also in the details – the foil packaging, freshness, US manufacturing, quality ingredients, and of course, the variety. There’s a tea for every day of the week, and every type of weather and mood.

I also love how it sets the stage and welcomes my four other daily fall bucket list items into my morning.

2 – Everyday, I perform an act of kindness. It gives me a glow I take throughout my whole day. And there doesn’t have to be a limit on doing something kind only once, but it has to be at least once. The sky is the limit to what you want to do.

3 – Everyday, I make healthy comfort food for myself. ‘Tis the season and all. You all know I crave ice cream every day of spring and summer, but my fall and winter craving is for soup. The ultimate comfort food! I also add healthy sides.

4 – Everyday, I go for a cool mid-morning power walk with my dog. I got pretty behind on this during the humid summer days, especially with kids around all summer. I need my exercise peace and I know my dog does better because of it too.

5 – Everyday, I take the time to appreciate these moments. Fall is the most magical season. I’ve always been a warm weather girl, but notice how I’ve never stayed too far from places with four distinct seasons! There’s a reason for that.
