Thank you Proctor & Gamble and Walmart for sponsoring today’s post.
Do you move often? Do you have a funny story about moving? I wanna hear all about it! We’ve moved more times than I can even keep up with. Our most recent move was the most ridiculous… just all around, but we won’t really go into that right now. Today I wanted to share with you a few funny photos of this last move.
When you remember to pack a baking sheet, but not an oven mitt, you get resourceful. Thanks, husband of mine for letting me borrow your bandana. Haha.
Cooking up some hotdogs in this skillet because it’s what we had with us.
Spatulas are important too! I made one out of a cardboard tag from something we’d purchased earlier that day. It worked, if I was careful.
Being military spouse, I’ve been through more than my fair share of moves. I’ve learned quite a few things along the way. I like to share the things that I know, so today’s post is all about the 5 things (All available at Walmart) you should buy the day you move in. This really applies for any move, not just military moves.
I always like to do a quick over of our new place before we unpack and settle in. You should start by wiping down everything before you settle in. I do. It makes me less weirded out thinking about whoever lived there before us.
I recommend Bounty®. Each roll lasts longer thanks to them being more absorbent so you can use less with each mess. Plus, being able to select a size is a huge bonus.
You’ll want to wash those curtains, and bedding that have been sitting in storage. I recommend Tide® PODS® Laundry Detergent. With their 3-in-1 laundry solution (detergent, stain remover, and brightener), just pop one in your laundry and go about your business. These pods dissolve in any temperature and can be used in any washing machine.
Swiffer ® WetJet Mop Starter Kit- you just never know who lived there before you, or how well it was cleaned. This goes right along with wiping everything down. With Swiffer® WetJet mop is an all in one mopping system! It traps and locks dirt and it’s designed to give tough messes a more powerful clean.
The ease of using the mop helps teach my kids responsibility. My oldest spilled something the other day, all down the cabinets and himself. He grabbed the Swiffer WetJet and started cleaning up his own mess. I’ve told the kids over and over that if they make a mess, they clean it. Easy as that. And I’m thankful that the WetJet is easy enough that they can use it as well.
Sometimes you end up in a house that just kind of smells like fresh paint or cleaning products, or even pets. Our house gets smelly with the dogs, so I rely on Unstopables™ Air Refresher. I love the long lasting, boutique-worthy scent.
Last but not least, Charmin® Ultra Strong. Toilet paper speaks for itself, but Charmin® allows you to use 4x LESS and is 4x stronger (than leading bargain brands).
Moving can be a stressful time, but quality brands like Bounty® , Swiffer® , Tide® , Unstopables™and Charmin® make your move clean and simple.
