Decluttering to Enjoy the Simple Things

Wednesday, March 14, 2018

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Ivory. The opinions and text are all mine.


The older McKenna gets the more I realize how fast time goes by. It feels like she was just born yesterday and today she's crawling and babbling! I feel like I took so many of our earlier moments together for granted and it really makes me miss being pregnant with my little Jellybean. In an effort to not miss a single moment I've been all about simplifying our life so we can spend more time together. One way I've been simplifying our life is just getting organized and clearing out things we don't use.

I have been on a decluttering mission since last month and one of the first places I started was our  upstairs bathroom. As I mentioned in my latest natural hair post, I am a product hoarder. This also applies to the soaps and body washes I keep in the shower. Add in McKenna's bath products and it's easy to see why it was time to declutter! 

It was so refreshing to throw away all the bottles and jars of products we barely like and replace them with favorites from Ivory. Since my boyfriend prefers bar soap it was easy to switch out the drying bar soap he usually uses and swap it out for Ivory Original 3-Bar. One of our favorite ways to spend time together is cuddling on the couch with McKenna and watch a good movie. This soap is perfect for him because he can cuddle her extra tight without worrying about irritating her sensitive skin with the products he uses!

I prefer body washes and used to gravitate towards products with heavy floral scents. Since I am breastfeeding it's important  I use products that won't irritate my little babe's skin. That's why I chose the Ivory Free & Gentle Body Wash with Pear & Sandalwood. It contains the #1 Dermatologist-Recommended moisturizing ingredient and it's free of dyes and parabens, so I know McKenna won't get any irritations from our nursing sessions. The light, fruity scent is an added bonus to a body wash that is formulated to gently cleanse and nourish your skin!


The gentle clean from the Ivory Original Body Wash was an instant hit in our household. It's free of dyes and heavy perfumes, but still gentle. It has the most luxurious lather and leaves my skin feeling clean, but not dry and tight. I'll let you in on a little secret: I also like to add a few drops of this body wash or the Free & Gentle version to McKenna's nightly baths to amp up the bubbles! 

Ivory is a well-known brand which has been around for 138 years and continues to uphold the standard of using simple ingredients for a pure clean. The simple, beloved formula has been trusted for generations and I can totally see why. I'm so over the dry, itchy skin that comes with winter and Ivory works wonderfully on everyone's skin while still being gentle! If you would like to learn more about Ivory, click here.


Decluttering our bathroom was easy compared to my next "spring cleaning" task: our bedroom closet! If you have any tips for closet organization or how your simplify your mom life, please leave them in the comments below. This new mama needs all the help she can get!
