Every season has items that you need to have in stock. Winter? Hand warmers for chilly play dates, gourmet hot cocoa for a post-ice skating treat, and plenty of family games for indoor fun. Spring? Doormats to absorb all the spring rain, flower and gardening essentials, and cleaning supplies. Fall? Fire starters for cozy bonfires outside, apple cider, and flannel pjs. Here are a few of my summer home must-haves to check out!
So many of us are working from home these days, both because of COVID-related work situations AND playing hooky during the warm weather.

Ok. It has been HOT HOT HOT across the country, and I have been inside more often, entertaining friends while sitting in the AC as opposed to the backyard. I recently noticed my kitchen was…pretty stinky. I figured out that the odor was coming from the sink of all places (after deep cleaning the fridge and sanitizing the trash can, of course).
The garbage disposer can get pretty gross if it isn’t cleaned regularly (who knew). I added Glisten Garbage Disposer Cleaner to my shopping list so I could make this a regular part of my cleaning regimen. All you have to do is toss the biodegradable scrubbing packets in and watch the blue foaming cleanser work its magic! I love that they contain natural ingredients, and are safe to use weekly in my home. Grab them at Walmart and other national retailers.
My favorite type of gatherings are when people randomly get together. When it isn’t planned, but the planets somehow align and everyone is able to meet up for a few hours without stressing how their home, hair or clothes look.
The only issue with this is making sure you have enough entertaining essentials on hand, specifically beverages in my case. I love having canned sparkling water, a lighter summer wine (Fun Wine is a colorful option!), and decent cheese and nuts stocked. Fun Wine can be mixed with lemonade, sparkling water, spirits, anything! It has a low ABV, low sugar, low carbs, and only 59 calories per 5 oz. pour.
Cheers to beating the heat this summer and enjoying time at home with family and friends!
