5 Reasons You Will Love Boscov’s All Year Long!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Boscov’s, and as usual, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own!

On Saturday, I got to attend Boscov's VIP Home Sale -  a semi-annual houseware event full of vendors, product samples, demonstrations, and great sales. While there, I fell in love with everything about Boscov's. This is my post-event recap, but also my reasons you'll love it year round! #ad #BoscovsHome

I think by now you know that I’m a gusher. Not gusher as in juicy fruit snack, but gusher as in “one who gushes.”

I can’t contain my enthusiasm. I used to think that maybe it was cute and infectious and charming, and perhaps it still is, but I always worry that the older I get, maybe people think it’s strange? The way I gush all over people when I meet them and I really like, love or respect them. And it’s the way I gush over details about food, moose, travel, etc. As an Influencer, I sometimes get to travel for work, or to attend events. I had one in Boston over the winter, and I couldn’t stop fangirling over the people I got to meet. Luckily, they haven’t stopped hiring me or emailing me, so I’ll call it a win. I gush, you see.

I’m naturally enthusiastic and passionate, and you all know that I LOVE my job. The reason I went into this is because I’m obsessed with details. Imagine a career you can do mostly at home, that is about details?! On Saturday, I gushed far more than I’ve ever gushed at work. I was humbled and honored to attend Boscov’s VIP Sale. This is a semi-annual houseware event full full of vendors, product samples, demonstrations, and great sales. It’s like Black Friday, but for housewares, and mostly (mostly) without the winter weather. No promises on that one, unfortunately. Des was sick and had to stay home, but my darling daughter came to help me shop! As you can imagine, she had NO trouble doing this with me, of course.

This was a big deal for me. Not only did I get to enjoy Boscov’s in all their friendly, fast-paced, exciting glory, but I also got to meet two colleagues I have long considered to be both mentors and friends. Basically it was one of the best days of my business life, and maybe even my life. I smiled from ear to ear all day! The shopping was exquisite! I got to see some of my housewares in action, and even tried incredible samples. We ate, we laughed, we shopped, we learned, we loved!

Emphasis on the loving and learning! Here are 5 reasons you will love Boscov’s all year long:

1 – The customer service. It’s WHOA! I was nervous that morning, because it mattered to me. Scarlet and I left early in the morning on a gorgeous, sunny, mountain-filled drive to Albany. It took us a little over an hour, and then we were instantly welcomed into the store. Whenever I had a question, someone was always there to answer it. And I was offered help around every bend. I think the sales associates and the cashiers were beyond knowledgeable and helpful too! We were charmed.

2 – The selection! This is another big whoa! I had looked online and at flyers before the VIP event, but they had everything on our list, and even the more esoteric things. They had a MOOSE trash can! And bath pillows and a popcorn maker.

3 – It’s kid-friendly. It’s true that this was a special event, but the kid sections were easy to navigate and full of exactly what Scarlet loved and wanted. We had a blast walking through the whole store and noticing the details.

4 – Boscov’s is active in the community. They actively participate in events in each of their local communities, and make sure that their fundraisers remain local too. They hold food and clothing drives, bake sales, paper pin-up sales and other fundraising and awareness events for local community organizations. You can keep up with their events on their site!

5 – History and family. Boscov’s has been known for great value, famous brands, and wonderful customer service for 100 years!

As you can tell, we had a great time and we can’t wait to go back! While the VIP event was amazing, the deals, sales, and benefits of going to Boscov’s last all year long. If you’re in or near an area with Boscov’s, you have to go! And it’s worth making the trip. Next time, Cassidy and Des will come! We already have a plan to stock up before summer on all the goods!

What’s #1 In My Spring Cleaning Toolkit, and Why!

Spring cleaning is something we all have to do, so it's important to get the right gear for it! Here's what is number one in our spring cleaning toolkit, ESPECIALLY, in a house overrun with little feet and paws. #ad #TheLibmanCompany #EmbraceLifesMesses

I don’t know about you, but this here house is overrun with little feet and paws!

Even though our chickens don’t come into the house, they are also a part of our spring cleaning! After all, we raised them in the basement under heat lamps. It’s mud season in New England and some of us.. cough cough (DES).. don’t always remember to take our dirty boots off after coming inside! Today is both raining and snowing and it’s just one of those days in which you have to throw open the curtains and make the best of it. Every now and then I get a cleaning whim. Mind you, this is rare, but that’s why I need The Libman Company. They know their way around cleaning products, and I need that!

I need anything that makes spring cleaning easier, and since The Libman Company is a family-owned company, and 120-years-old (!!), their USA-made brooms, brushes, mops, and cleaning tools are pretty awesome. There are a lot of messes in my life. I have two pets and two kids who seem to do a lot of damage with their feet and paws around here. Without fail!

That’s why the best item in my spring cleaning toolkit is my Tornado Mop. This is America’s bestselling mop, which I actually didn’t know! I can see why, though, because my kids love it too. For real, I caught them both dancing with it.

If danceability isn’t a top-selling point, I don’t know what is! (sorry for the blur, but can’t resist:)

The Tornado’s larger mop head covers 50% more surface area. The three green bands prevent tangling. And, the polyester yarn resists odor-causing bacteria. The Tornado Mop is ideal for any surface, and I rather love that. We seem to have a lot of messes around here, and spring is probably when you notice it the most. It’s more light and fresher air and definitely more dirt! I never thought I’d prefer the days of snow melting onto the floors, but the dirt seems endless. Luckily, I have just what we need to make this house cleaner and fresher. Our Tornado Mop is easy to use, and highly effective.

What else could you need for spring?
