Did you know there’s a different approach to laundy detergent that’s light, easy to use, and completely mess free? Tru Earth offers eco-friendly laundry strips that will remind you of a dryer sheet. You simply tear one pre-measured strip of laundry detergent off the sheet and toss it in with your laundry load.
Tru Earth Eco-Strips are low-sudsing and work in all types of washing machines, including HE. They are also designed to be clean and safe for the environment and are paraben-free, phosphate-free, with no added dyes or chlorine bleach.

Simplify the process of spraying for pests, weeds, and other needs with Petratools HD4000 Battery Backpack Sprayer. This professional grade sprayer has a super long battery life to keep you going throughout the job. It comes with 6 different nozzle attachments to help you get just the right application for your needs. With options for shower, stream, mist, and more and adjustable pressure to match the job.
We used the Petratools HD4000 Backpack Sprayer to help tackle weeds in our garden beds and in our lawn and it was so easy to use. It works like a dream not having to pump to spray. Instead, we purchased a concentrated solution, added water and the equivalent solution recommendation, and we were able to tackle a big section of our lawn before needing to refill. The HD4000 Backpack Sprayer worked great and was easy and convenient!
Papaya offers a smart way to upgrade to an eco-friendly solution to the traditional paper towels! With their reusable paper towels, you can replace the use of 17 disposable rolls of paper towels with just with cloth! Papaya reusable paper towels absorb up to 20x its own weight in liquid making it super absorbent and great for wiping up spills and messes in the kitchen and around the home.
Papaya Paper Towels are easy to clean, too. You can either wash with soap and water and let dry, toss them in with your laundry loads and air dry, or put them in the top rack of your dishwasher during a cycle for clean and fresh towels that can be used again and again. I love the funky and fun prints that really brighten up my kitchen and make cleaning less of a chore. The Papaya reusable paper towels absorb a ton and feel great to use!
Cover your bed in the comfort and luxury of a Cariloha Bamboo Fleece Blanket. It’s sized just right to fit a King or Queen mattress and add a layer of softness and warmth for when you want extra layers or are ready to ditch your heavy comforter as the weather warms. The bamboo fleece fabric is naturally great at regulating body temperatures making it perfect for all seasons.
You can then top your bed, or add this favorite to your cozy spot on the couch, with a Plush Bamboo Throw Blanket. I love it in the gorgeous Blue Lagoon color or pick the perfect neutral for your space. It is a thick and oh-so-buttery-soft blanket that has a thick pile you just want to bury your face in. I love that it has some weight to the blanket and it’s not super thin so it actually keeps me warm and cozy.

Unique Finds for Spring
This crazy era in our world history has created some unique problems like virtual learning and new routines for families. One pick that’s great for families is dBud earplugs by Earlabs. These fit in your ear just like earbuds but instead of adding more noise to your life they help filter out some of the extra volume with an easy toggle switch to adjust the decibel reduction. Simply slide the dBuds toggle to the left or right to switch between -11dB and -24dB volume reduction.
They don’t require any batteries or cords as there are no electronic components, making them great for kids and adults alike! I have a child with some sensory processing hurdles. He doesn’t handle a lot of noise very well and being able to turn down the overall volume really helps in his behaviors and self regulation. dBuds are a great tool to help both parents and kids stay more focused on their task at hand while still being present.
If you’re looking for a fun project to support one of your hobbies or interests, look into UGears mechanical models. I love board games, so for me I was excited to see the model for a UGeras Card Holder. It’s a beautiful design that can hold a ton of cards in a compact way that makes it very useful for playing games. It was fun to put it together, though it did take some effort. I appreciated that no glue was needed and that it even has moving, working parts!
The next model I’m planning to put together is the UGears Dice Tower. It converts to individual dice rollers for 4 players or an impressive 4-story high dice tower to ensure no cheating – your dice is certainly rolled! A dice tower can really add a lot to certain boards games and I love the beautiful design of the wood gaming dice tower UGears has created!
Audible is taking the audiobook industry by storm with their huge assortment of Audible Original titles. There’s something fresh and new to listen to every month. I’ve really been enjoying the selection of Words+Music by popular artists. It’s been really interesting to hear the stories behind the songs and how the artists journey helped create their music. These are all included with your Audible membership including Alanis Morissette, Sheryl Crow, and a new audiobook by Sting called Upon Reflection!
Our family gets so much value from an Audible subscription as we listen to a huge range of books from their books included with membership, no credit needed! This month, I have Next Year in Havana (a Reese Book Club Pick) and The Coroner on my reading list. My kids love listening to audiobooks at have The Worst Warlock and Dealing with Dragons on their list to listen to next.
I’m a firm believer in having lots of books around our home. It helps to create an environment where kids are more likely to read. All 4 of my boys love to read, and will read a wide variety of books. We love Scholastic books which helps make adding to our library affordable! When got an early preview of some new titles coming to Scholastic Books this year!
All of the new titles look fantastic, but my boys are especially excited a few in particular. The Dragon Path is a graphic novel about the journey of the Wong Clan and an epic battle that ensues. In Force of Fire the main character has to learn how to control her ability of fire breathing while also working through a myriad of social and societal woes. Watch for these and additional new release titles your family is sure to love coming this year!
Spring Style Picks
The must-have fashion accessory for Spring is a Clipa bag hanger. You’ll be able to protect your purses and bags and hang them even where you might not usually have a convenient option with the help of Clipa! Simply wrap the clip around your bag strap and it’s ready for you whenever you need it. You can use it on tabletops, chairs, counters, rails, carts, headrests, fences, strollers and so many other places.
My favorite use for Clipa is for bathroom stalls when there is no hook you now have an easy option to keep your purse off the bathroom floor. I also really love how it can be used in the car to keep your purse from tipping over and it’s out of the way! If you have a passenger, you can hang it from the back of the seat instead. A Clipa bag holder can help hold items up to 33lbs including purse, backpack, diaper bag, grocery bags, camera bag, umbrellas, gym bag, and more!
Wrap bracelets are popular for a reason and with MaeMarie Intention Wraps you’ll find gorgeous individually hand-strung wraps that are made in the USA! They are most popularly worn as a bracelet but can be worn as a necklace or anklet, too! I love that MaeMarie has designed their wraps to be not only beautiful but with purpose. They encourage setting a specific intention to your wrap bracelet. Then, as you notice you wrap throughout the day or week, you’ll be reminded of your purpose or goals you have set for yourself.
I really love the Twilight Signature in this deep blue color that is so stunning! It’s accented with a signature bead in either gold or silver that compliments the wrap so well. I appreciate that they are one size fits all or custom sizing if you need it. My other favorite is the Harmony Luxe. It’s a timeless subtle purple that will go with just about everything!
