This post was sponsored by P&G as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.

I love household hacks that save me time and money, especially with a houseful!  As many of you already know, I’m a mommy of four and with the kids out for summer I’m doing everything I can to keep up with work, kids, their mess, and staying on top of holding them accountable for picking up their mess.  Seriously, there is no way one person can keep up with all that; there isn’t enough time in the day, and I don’t have enough arms.  Not to mention the fact that they are old enough to pick at least up after themselves and not leave me with all sorts of crap to clean up.

Make the house smell good

Place a Bounce Dryer Sheet on the back of your box fan or lay one flat in each of your AC/heater vents.  When the AC or heater is on you’ll smell the wonderful scent Bounce is known for.

Yucky dirty laundry

Keep laundry from stinking up the room by placing a dryer sheet at the bottom of your hamper.

Downy Unstopables Scent Boosters

Yucky garbage disposals

To remove odors from your garbage disposal simply pour a few beads directly into the drain, allow to sit for as long as possible (I like to do it for at least 6 hours or overnight) in the morning turn on your garbage disposal to make sure there are no beads left behind and rinse for 3 seconds with water.

Fantastic smelling homemade laundry detergent

If you make your laundry detergent you can use Downy Unstopables to contribute to making it smell AMAZING!

Carpet & furniture spray

Fill a large squirt bottle (about the size of normal cleaning bottles) with water and add about ¼ of a capful of beads, allow to dissolve.  If needed, you can add more beads to get your desired scent.  Use for carpet, couches, beds, and anything else you want to smell fabulous.

Gosh, I could go on and on with hacks to save you time and money using everyday household items like Bounty Advanced Paper Towels, Downy Unstopables, and Bounce Dryer Sheets.  If I missed one that you think needs to be added to the list be sure and leave us a comment with your quick and easy hack that saves time and money.

I love having around because I can use them for so many different hacks as well as what they’re for, let’s just say my I would be lost without P&G products.  It’s the little things, the little details that make the big difference and make P&G products stand apart from the rest.

Bounce Dryer Sheets are by far the best smelling in all of the land.  When I think of how clean laundry smells, I think of Bounce.  Plus, they work great, not only on clothing but some other things as I mentioned above.  If you ask me but they are more than that they work great on clothing as well as some other things.

I love Bounty Advanced Paper Towels; you can feel the difference when you grab one vs. National Bounty.  They are strong, absorbent, and have longer select-a-size sheets.  Yes, that means there is more paper per inch.

And, let’s just say Downy Unstopables are amazing!  Not only do they leave an amazing fragrance behind, but it’s also a long lasting fresh scent.  The scent boosting technology infused the unique beads with up to 9X more scent than many liquids and lasts for up to 12 weeks.  Is that awesome or what?  Plus, they have a variety of fragrances and work with hot or cold water cycles.

The little things in life matter!  More often than not those little things make a big difference – smells, saving time, ease, comfort, feelings, colors and more all have an impact on how we deal with our day.  P&G Products leave my clothing, home, car, hair and more not just smelling great but feeling great.  From getting rid of static hair that makes me cranky to soft static free clothing, saving time and even saving money Bounce Dryer Sheets, Downy Unstopables, and Bounty Paper Towels are one of the little things that have an enormous impact on my day.   I can also save time and money by purchasing P&G products at Costco.  I don’t have to go back as often because I can buy in bulk, yet another little thing with a big impact.

You can get all these items and more on your next run to your local Costco or by visiting
