6 Ways to Start the New Year Right + a Free Printable

Thank you to all the featured brands for sponsoring this post!

Whether 2016 was your best or worst year yet, I believe in always starting the New Year in the best way possible. I don’t necessarily believe in making New Year resolutions, mostly because they don’t always last.

My favorite “resolution” to date was when my family made a list of 1 thing to do a month. It included a family hike, shopping trip, and other fun things to last us the full year. I included a fun printable for you to plan one family activity per a month for the year!

Instead of a resolution, I like to start the new year off fresh, clean, comfortable, and new! I begin with a few trips to Goodwill to donate our old and unused items.

& then we start fresh….

1.) Fresh new bed sheets, comforter, and towels! None better than Cariloha

You know that feeling you get when you get into bed with freshly cleaned sheets? Well absolutely nothing beats getting into a bed with brand new freshly cleaned sheets, a brand new comforter, and not to mention the softest bedding in the world!

My home and room just feel so much fresher and more comfortable with amazing new bedding and towels  (I refuse to let anyone use my new towel) ! If you are really wanting to refresh, I highly recommend getting a fresh set of sheets on the guest bed too!

Cariloha products are made with bamboo and are so incredibly soft! They’re not only temperature regulating, but also come with a 90 day guarantee.

2.) A clean house without taking up your precious time with bObi by bObsweep!

A robot vacuum is the new it thing to have, and what better way to start the year, knowing you won’t be the one vacuuming and mopping every single time??

You can vacuum, sweep and mop in one go with the bObi. These are things I do at least once a day. With a toddler who likes to help cook and messy eaters – sweeping is never ending. I love the idea of spending more time with the family and less time cleaning.

I received this wonderful vacuum for review purposes, and boy have I loved it! It keeps our house nice and clean and I can use it while taking care of these precious boys!!

3.) Less stress with Tile

I know you have spent some time looking for your keys, wallet, purse, or something along those lines. If you have a toddler who things everything is his toy to play with, chances are you may lose things more often than others.

My husband especially has been late his fair share of times looking for his keys or wallet! Graydon wants to be just like daddy, so that of course involves using everything daddy uses!

With Tile you just attach a tile to your keys or slide it in your wallet to easily find whatever you need! (I think we need to attach one to our remote now too)

4.) You time, for pampering and relaxation with SpaThyme.

SpaThyme has incredibly delicious body scrubs, lip scrubs, and so much more. She creates natural products, so good and natural you could eat it!

I always feel so good after using these amazing products!

5.) Organization with a START planner. 

I really want to be more organized this year. Now that my blog is really turning into my second job (always a mom first) – I want to put more time and energy into it. This starts with my START planner.

This planner is made with you in mind. They have three planners -Fancy Pants, Hustle, and Legit.

“It STARTS with you. Believe, dream and start making things happen!”

I am so excited to have a planner that is not only beautiful, but perfectly made for me!

6.) Treat yourself with something special. If you’re a nursing mom, with The Dairy Fairy.

With beautiful and luxurious pumping and nursing apparel – the Dairy Fairy is the perfect way to start your year in style!

Pumping and nursing is hard work, and you deserve to look good and be comfortable!

Could you think of a better way to start the New Year?? I certainly could not! I am so excited to get 2017 rocking with all these cool things! I am also excited to plan the perfect year, filled with wonderful memories! This calendar insures we do something fun and adventurous at least once a month! NO EXCUSES!
