Buying an Older Home and the Products that make it easier!


This post is sponsored by BabbleBoxx.com.ll opinions are my own.

The last few years we have all heard about Fixer Uppers and buying homes with character and renovating them. It was kind of like a bug and that everyone was bitten by it, including us.

As I had mentioned before we had a beautiful brand new home with lots of space, then came Bella and she brought thousands of things with her and our perfect starter home was just that a place to start. Our old home was the last house built in the neighboorhood and all the sudden our street became the main street meaning that cars passing by were literally racing and not even noticing the speed limit! My mama was on a string every single time we took a walk or even walked out to our car. That, with a few other small issues, made us make the move. Our now house fell into our lap even when we weren’t looking for a home. It was truly God’s work!

Our new home is close to 20 years old and was pretty much remodeled but like always, there is still a lot that has to be done. The list is a mile long but we are working on it slowly but surely. But if you have moved recently like we did you are aware of the headaches that come with this blessing, so in this post, I have included a few things that will give you a lot fewer headaches.


First off, My Cloud Home. 

I’m always so terrified of losing pictures of us as a family and when Bella was little. Since most of them are on my phone I tremble every time my phone has a glitch, not to mention the fact that our memory cards could get lost.


Another sweet thing about My Cloud is that I can share photos with my friends a family, like Bella’s birthday pictures. Oh, and did I mention it uses your Wifi and no monthly fees! Sounds like my love language!

Comet® Bleach Powder and Foaming Bath Spray

I’ve mentioned on Instagram before we don’t use many products in our home but Comet is one only product we still use! I love it because it’s strong enough to take away all the build up a house of almost 20 years has yet I don’t need to open a window when I’m using it! It’s all very simple and super easy, not to mention fast!

I use the Comet Foaming Spray on every inch of my bathroom!

Have you ever used Comet? What do you think about it?


Duck Brand Smooth Top® Easy Liner ® Brand Shelf Liner ®

This product fits my life so much! I love to line all my cabinets and in this house, I simply forgot to do it when we moved in. Doing this simple step makes my cabinets look so pretty! I have added this to my to-do list while spring cleaning next week! This print matches my cabinets and even the floor! I love it and it’s machine washable!


Waterpik PowerSpray+™ Fixed Mount Shower Head

One of the biggest home projects on our list is updating our showers and tubs! I’m sure all of it was standard when our home was built. We have a tiny fix that’ll share coming up but this shower head is such an easy upgrade yet it makes your whole showering experience, you know what I mean if you are a mom, just be wonderful! The power massage features sounds amazing!

I will be sharing this small upgrade soon on here and you can get started early by buying your self a PowerSpray Showerhead by visiting their website and saving $10 off it!


Wemo Mini Wi-Fi Smart Plug

This product is perfect for married couples, haha. I cant tell you to have many times my husband and I go back and forth as to who is turning the lights off when we are both already in bed. Does this happen to you? But being serious it’s really a great product!

Simply plug the device into the wall outlet, download the free app and connect your Wemo to the Wi-Fi and that’s it! You can control lights and appliances too! You can also set schedule and timers, keywords for us moms! This plug reminds me of the movie Smart Home on Disney channel when I was a kid! :)) I really feel like I also have a Smart home too! 😉

Here is a $5 coupon code so you can also have a Smart home!


Now it’s your turn! Tell me about your favorite products!
