A Spring Overhaul For Body, Mind & Home + GIVEAWAY!

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Cast off the cobwebs of winter with a simple spring overhaul for the mind, body and home + a fabulous GIVEAWAY!

Move over winter, beautiful glorious spring has arrived… and I love spring! Now’s the time to open up the windows and let the fresh air and brilliant sun pour in – and the best way to enjoy this change of season is with a little spring overhaul that goes way beyond just cleaning.

Plus… I am giving you the chance to win a beautiful bundle of products (valued at over $120!) which will help you freshen up your home, your body, and your mindset.

Spring cleaning giveaway

During the colder months our linen, carpets and walls can start to feel a bit stale, our mindsets may be in need of a little shake-up, and even our legs (which might not have seen the light of day in a while) could benefit from a little TLC.

HAPPY MIND = HAPPY LIFE

BE GRATEFUL – People who take the time to reflect on things they’re grateful for (as opposed to wishing for things they don’t have) often report much higher levels of happiness. A gratitude journal is a really quick and easy way to foster this gratitude, and our 5 Year Memory Book provides the perfect platform for starting a gratitude journal that will keep you going for years!

A POSITIVE PICK-ME-UP – The winter months can leave many people feeling low – there’s even a name for this! It’s called the ‘winter blues’, and it’s basically a seasonal funk brought about by shorter days and less sunshine. Add COVID restrictions to these winter blues, and it’s likely that many of us could benefit from a mindset makeover this spring.

This pack of Affirmation Cards includes 52 uplifting quotes that can be displayed in this funky timber stand (which is included – bonus!). I keep one next to my bed for an instant happiness boost in the morning.

FRESHEN UP THE HOME

LINEN + TOWELS –  The linen cupboard can start to smell a little musty in the cooler months, but this can easily be rectified with a homemade DIY cupboard deodoriser.

Simply fill a mason jar with baking soda and a few drops of your favourite essential oil. Replace the metal insert in the lid with thick paper or cardboard, and insert a few holes so that the deodorising and neutralising properties of the baking soda can work their magic. When you notice the scent starting to fade, just give the jar a little shake to reactivate. Replace after 3 months.

WALLS + BATHROOMS – There are some great cleaning products that require only water, which makes them perfect for quickly spot cleaning those dirty fingerprints that keep reappearing on the walls or the toothpaste smears around the bathroom vanity. The Scrub Daddy sponges are particularly fabulous for this! Simply add water before wiping away those marks on the walls and light switches. If you come across tough marks that don’t want to budge, spray some of The Pink Stuff Multi-Purpose Cleaner – it’s non-toxic, made from 100% natural cleaning particles, and is incredibly tough on grease and grime! It’s also fab for removing soap build-up in the bathroom too.

CARPETS – Commercial carpet cleaning can be expensive and often unnecessary. Sometimes a simple spot clean is all that’s needed to revitalise a room again. As with my linen cupboard tips above, your carpets can be freshened up with a simple DIY cleaner.

I created my own carpet cleaner years ago to contend with the inevitable mess of kids and cats and I love it! It’s incredibly budget friendly, works an absolute treat, and all the ingredients can be purchased off the supermarket shelves. To use this homemade Carpet Cleaner you’ll need: paper towel, water, vinegar, bicarb soda, and a spray bottle.

PAMPER YOURSELF

Don’t forget yourself! Taking a little time for ourselves is so important, and if you’re anything like me you’ll have relished in the coverage your winter wardrobe provided. Now is the time though to nourish our dry winter skin, rid our bodies of the hair we’ve been hiding under those winter woollies, and get our glorious glow back on!

SPRING SKIN REFRESH – I don’t like to use chemicals on my skin or on my daughters’ skin, which is why I created a Homemade Makeup Remover recipe. It leaves my skin feeling beautifully soft, so would be ideal to try if your skin is feeling a little dry after the winter months. I use it daily to remove my makeup, and love teaming it with these Reusable Bamboo Facial Pads. They come in a convenient wash bag so I simply pop all the dirty pads back in their bag and straight into the washing machine at the end of each week.

SILKY SMOOTH – It’s not just our faces that get a build up of dry skin over winter, our bodies can generally do with a good overhaul too! An exfoliating brush, body wash, and a good moisturising body lotion is all you need to kick start this process. I love the Ecoya range of body products for this because not only are they free from animal testing and artificial colours, they also smell absolutely delicious!


I use labels throughout my entire house, you can find them in my bathroom, kitchen, garage, laundry and even in my fridge… wherever you look really. Labels give instant organised gratification.

My windows are all dirty and grimmy from the ocean and having them closed up over winter so they’ll need an overhaul. Also, since reading your post about toilet cleaning, we have decided to take the toilet seats apart and cleaning under them… and perhaps new seats? Ohhhh, almost forgot. When hubby can looking after our daughter for the day, I’ll hire a carpet cleaning machine from woolies, thanks to your blog. Who seriously gets excited about cleaning and making it sparkle? MUMS!

My mind needs a spring overhaul. After being cooped up for such a significant period of time this year, and a number of additional challenges within the family, my mind and soul needs a fresh start. And spring is the perfect season to start with a clean slate. I know for me, the physical space I’m in influences my mental well-being and when my home is clean and tidy, my mind is also clearer. So a physical spring clean will definitely support a mental spring clean.

Linda Marquis September 25, 2020 - 10:19 AM

Our main bedroom needs a good spring cleaning. We’ve let our bedroom become the place where clutter comes to die and then with all the clutter comes little incentive to do a good clean and so you only do a quick surface clean. Hardly leaves a romantic aura for a place that should be a oasis in one’s home.

My home office / library. It’s been the baby’s room for last 2+ years, we babysit A LOT. Her mum and dad both work and since Covid we’ve had to take her 3 siblings to school and pick up 4 days a week, and some weekends. Daughter works on Covid tracking. Bub is about to go into a big bed so I can have my office back and it needs lots of TLC. It would be fabulous to relax with my books again, in an organised room.

Hi there! My study needs a spring overhaul. Working From Home has made it a dusty, cluttered, dreary space full of tasks that I never get around to because I’ve almost lost my mojo for approaching that part of the house for anything other than my job or to dump stuff that doesn’t belong anywhere else. Happy to report that avoiding my office has resulted in me doing some gardening though. For anyone who needs to lift their spirits and doesn’t win the Spring prize pack … go plant a lavendar bush and pull out a few weeds.

I think everyone could do with a freshen up of mind, body & home … Spring is traditionally the time of year to clear up the clutter & breathe in some lightness & fresh air. Now more than ever we could do with a refocus …

1. MIND – the affirmation cards & memory book (cute idea) will help focus my mind whilst at work.

2. BODY – Ecoya hand & body lotion on my desk will encourage me to give my dry hands some TLC & the Ever Eco Bamboo Facial Pads will mean an easy way to rid my face of make up & the worries of the day (I’ve finally made the switch from facial wipes but I’m using the old kids face cloths … read Cars, Superman etc!). Having something just for me that can be washed & reused would be delightful.

3. HOME – Scrub Daddy (yellow), White Magic Washing Up Pad (I use their pads & cloths in the bathroom so I’m keen to try this in the kitchen) & Pink Stuff Multi-Purpose Spray – I’ve reduced my number of cleaning products but you always need something quick & easy & most importantly does the job!

My mind first. Working a very busy job, full of responsibility and travel, being a mum and partner, running a household and a side business means I don’t always have time for me. I love the idea of your quote cards and memory book. The quote cards would be handy for myself and the family each day to remember how lucky we are and to remain positive even in the rough times. And the gratitude journal will help me to remember and be grateful for all that is good in my life even when I’m juggling and Feel I’m Failing or about to drop Everything.

Firstly the Body Spring clean…after a long year I haven’t been looking after myself so starting to eat better, exercise etc would be top of the list.
Then to Spring clean the Mind with some rest and relaxation and time out for myself.
Then to the Spring clean of the home. We live in an old house that has constant dust settling. But this Winter has brought mould into the kids rooms and our wardrobes so these will be the first of my home Spring cleaning jobs. Phew…it’s going to be a busy Spring!!

I have three children with a disability and study full time, so can’t wait to get some spring cleaning done using @theorganisedhousewife cleaning recipes (awesome and ready to go), and decluttering/organizing tips that will make next year much easier.

To be exact ME! Myself personally could do with a Spring makeover. Things have totally gotten away from me, health, mind, body
& home. I cannot expect my life , family, home and surrounding to be organized and full of sunshine if I am not operating to my full capacity. But I have positivity that I will get there. And that is a start!

The bathroom! My daughters manage to spread water EVERYWHERE! The bath mat gets so musty and damp and during winter it is hard to get it to dry out in between baths. Walls seem to get a lot of dust build up too.

My tiled floors need help. After spending two days doing a deep clean of our en-suite (and I mean deep, including pulling out the seal around the shower screen) and scrubbing the grout lines, I can’t help but see ALL the rest of the grout in our house. Ahhh, it never ends.

My Laundry – seems to be the dump zone between inside and outside and as we call it the the ‘export’ zone – everything that needs to be shipped off and returned to its owners or recipients! Also the ‘junk drawer’ has exploded onto the bench, and my indoor plants that are not nice enough for the rest of the house, go to the laundry for TLC, then never leave!!

The whole house needs a good clean. I’ve kind of fallen into a slum with the whole Covid thing, my family all live in the US and my dad is in a nursing home so my stress about all of that has really taken over my mind. I look around and know that I need to clean, that I will feel a bit better after I do but I just can’t get myself motivated to do it. I would love to win this pack as I think it just may be the kick in the pants I need to get focused again!

Oh gosh. Where to start?! We are currently in the process of cleaning out our garage, and the entire house is in desperate need of a sort and clean. We are currently renovating (ourselves) and that is incredibly frustrating with unfinished rooms, plasterless walls, etc. We’ve all had such a horrid year (I’m in Vic) with fires, floods, and a pandemic. With my hubby being the captain of a CFA brigade, and me the secretary, plus family life, him working 5 and a half days a week, we’ve been time-poor. I also have a condition that means my feet and legs get really, really sore when I’m on them too long, so that doesn’t help either. I have started the cleaning and sorting in a couple of rooms, but boy is it a slow process! Anyone else on struggle street with ‘stuff’ getting in the way? I wish every one of us could have magic fairies come in and clean for us while we are on a well-deserved holiday! hahaha

My whole house! No, we have been slowly doing kitchen, windows, skirting boards and kid’s bedrooms and cupboards this week.
Great to declutter and be rid of things we don’t need. I just need the discipline to get in the study and clean it out as it has become the dumping grounds.

While the rest of Australia is opening up, we need to clear out the dust and wash the flyscreens and then get the house prepped for mould season in Darwin! We end up having to close parts of the house due to the wind and rain but first need to wipe down all the surfaces, clean the fans and watch for the mould to appear.

I just want a little part of my life to feel a little less overwhelming. I have broken my foot twice in 8 weeks with the second fall requiring surgery for 3 broken bones. Whilst I was in hospital my daughter was diagnosed with an eating disorder and spent 5 weeks hospitalised and just tonight my other daughter was taken via ambulance with a suspected broken ankle. I don’t know how my partner is coping with all 3 of his girls “broken”. Anything at this point will help us immensely and would be appreciated so much.

My kitchen needs a complete overhaul and tidy out. So many non-matched containers and lids and a gathering of many items that really could be thrown away. More organisation for the drawers and a clean out of all cupboards. Not to mention the fridge, freezer and a good clean of the oven. What a way to start then with all these wonderful products!

My WALLS & WINDOWS!!! I take pride in my organised home and love following a cleaning routine which keeps me on top of everything and my anxiety at bay, but my walls and windows I find overwhelming. With my youngest starting school next year, so the kids will be out of the house during the week days, I am planning a big wall and window clean. For walls I have used sugar soap in the past but find it really difficult to remove deeper stains like scuff marks. Just thinking about the windows and walls gives me anxiety, but focusing on how good I will feel once both tasks are completed.

The wardrobe in the bedroom
could do with some attention soon.
So many things packed in there
it fills me with such despair.

Clothes, gifts and bits and bobs.
It’s enough to make anyone sob!
Boxes full of things to be sorted.
To date, my attempts have been thwarted!

Some inspiring affirmation cards
will make the task seem less hard,
and some sponges and spray
will help wipe all the dust away.

Once the job is all completed
I will no longer feel defeated.
With this spring overhaul kit,
I will go into spring with a skip!

But to start with my walk in robe because I nearly fall,
Everytime I try to open up the door,
Things crash down behind it,
And I really want to ball,
It smells quite musty,
And is overstuffed for sure,
Please help me have a win,
The organised housewife I adore!

i spent way too much time staring at the walls in my home during lockdown and have mapped every single scratch, dent and mark. Some I’ve actually grown fond of (dent in wall in exactly the right spot to allow fridge door to swing out to precisely the right spot to remove shelves), others need to go (squashed mozzie spot that mocks me from my couch each night). This pack will give me the oomph I need to tackle this whole-of-house all-day-long task. Thanks Kat and the team for giving us a chance to win.
