As a matter of fact, celebrating National Laundry Day is an actual cause for celebration in my house!

It has to be, ever since we fell in love with all® Free Clear years ago and never turned back. It’s the PERFECT gentle detergent, whether you have sensitive skin, a newborn, are expecting a baby, or simply don’t like the smell of other laundry detergents! There are a million reasons to love it, including new innovations coming up this year! Intriguing, right? How do you like the sound of all® free clear Odor Relief and POWERCORE TM free clear? So much more to love! I can’t wait to share.

all® is honestly the first name I’ve ever known in laundry, because my parents used it when I was a kid. I remember the blue bottles! The brand covers everything, with compact powder, concentrated liquids, and single dose pacs in all sizes and variants. I love that they change with the times. They make me want to celebrate National Laundry Day! So let’s talk a bit more about why all® free clear is the #1 recommended brand by dermatologists, allergists and pediatricians for skin sensitivity. all® free clear offers a powerful clean, and also fights tough odors with new all® free clear Odor Relief.

all® free clear is safe for the whole family. It combines the power of stainlifters® with a hypoallergenic formula that’s perfect for skin sensitivity. There are no fragrances, no dyes, and no irritating residue. You just get clean, comfortable, worry-free clothes. Personally, I love the mild scent, and the clean clothes I get on laundry day! Also, it’s allergy season, so while these hypoallergenic products rinse clean and are clinically proven to be gentle on skin, they also remove 99% of top every day and seasonal allergens*. all® free clear comes in detergent, sheet and liquid fabric softener. Time to celebrate!

Tip #1 – Get messy! That’s right. Rest assured that all® free clear has your back during this winter to spring mud season. I’ve been doing my own laundry since I was 13, but I was so ill-prepared for just how messy young kids get, day after day. With money stretched tightly – I can’t just throw out their clothes every time they get dirty, like I am sometimes tempted to do when it’s bad! I also can’t stop them from being the wonderful and active kids that they are – mud season and all.

Tip #2 – Make it a family affair, and with rewards! In our house we’ve learned that laundry day goes swimmingly when we’re all working together. It gets the job done, and correctly. There’s no yelling at Mama because she put Des’ socks in Scarlet’s drawers, when we all take responsibility. This is a wonderful way to connect, to get the job done, and then to offer incentives. For us? That’s going out for ice cream once a week! Especially when our favorite summer stand is now open.

Tip #3 – Make it more fun. Yes, really. Put on a family movie, OR, watch a TV show during your folding party. We do this, and then during commercials, we take breaks and start mini dance parties, just to loosen up our joints after sitting.

Tip #4 – Take breaks! Load the washer. Take a break. Load the dryer. Take a break. Spend that downtime doing something really celebratory. After all, it’s National Laundry Day. Maybe a nice snack break, or a quick walk to the park.

Tip #5 – Keep enjoying your favorite laundry products, and also be open to new innovations! And that’s where all® free clear Odor Relief comes in! It attacks odors while still being gentle on skin. And it has a powerful clean and odor benefit but is also 100% free of dyes and perfumes. When you want to take care of your delicate skin, while also fighting smelly odors, then this is the perfect option! And all® POWERCORETM free clear offers those with sensitive skin a detergent that is gentle for their skin, but will also still deliver a powerful clean in the convenience of a single pac. They combine all® free clear liquid with a powerful whitening core that provides superior whitening and brightening.* 100% free of dyes and perfumes.

Now, do you feel ready to celebrate National Laundry Day? I know we do!

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!
