Our new contest is compliments of our friends at Barely Native, purveyors of soap products made with organic herbs and essential oils to leave skin feeling clean and moisturized. Barely Native is generously offering one lucky reader an entire YEAR of their non-toxic, cruelty-free soaps with a free membership in the Soap of the Month Club — a $100 value. We kind of wish we could enter this one!
Here’s how to enter for your chance to win: Tell us what scent evokes a pleasant memory for you, and tell us about that memory, in a comment on this post. Leave your comment between now and Tuesday, May 12, 5 p.m. EST. When comments close, the Shelterrific team will read them all and choose the one we think is the winner. That’s right — no random number generator this time. Instead, we’ll be selecting a winner based on our favorite comment! So think before you post! Be sure to leave a working email address. We can’t wait to read your comments!
Thanks so much to Brian and his team at Barely Native for making this giveaway possible.
P.S. We’ll announce the winners of the previous Small Garden Contest next week.

We can’t help you with the manual labor, but we can point you to this very helpful spring cleaning checklist at Casa Sugar. It’s a great, thorough guide on the whole house — what to spray, dust, dry clean, vacuum…you get the idea. We got such a positive response to our own daily cleaning and organization checklist, we knew you would appreciate this one.
Thanks to everyone who entered to win a Snap Pea Spring Cleaning Kit from Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day. Congrats to our lucky winners: eliz, cevec, Tammi, rachel, and Diana Lee. And now we’re off to freshen our homes for spring with fresh flowers, open windows, and of course, sweet-smelling products from Mrs. Meyer’s! (Here’s a hint: you can get 20% off any Geranium-scented product if you shop now.)
