It doesn’t take a mathematics whiz to know that there is a direct correlation between the amount of kids you have and the amount of messes you clean up throughout the day. 3 kids = A LOT of spills, drips, accidents, and messes. From cleaning up smeared Play Doh from the floor to finding that sticky puddle under the couch from the time your daughter spilled her smoothie (3 days ago.) I use to shop for the basic household cleanup essentials at my local drugstore, but as my family grew, so did my need for Costco-sized products. We are the epitome of “Economy-size” and the products we use should be as well.
There are a few things you can’t have too much of when it comes to kids- toilet paper and paper towels. We go through more paper towels than I could have imagined in my days of only having one child. And yes, we’ve tried many brands but always come back to Bounty Advanced for one main reason- it works. It’s thick, absorbent, and has my favorite feature- select-a-size. Sometimes you only need half a standard sheet of paper towel, while other messes require much more. It’s so nice to use only what I need and not have to waste or worry about cutting paper towels in half.
Other essential items we stock up on at Costco are dishwasher detergent. Cascade Platinum Advanced Power Action Pacs have proven time and time again to leave our dishes and dishwasher clean while skipping the dreaded step of rinsing the dishes first. In all honesty, WHY should I have to clean my dishes before sticking them in the dishwasher? It just doesn’t make sense! Procter & Gamble know that, and Cascade Platinum Advanced Power does the job right the first time.
Another thing that increases exponentially as your family grows is laundry. I can easily do a load or two a day and still not have a break in between. I can also leave it all for the weekend and do a minimum of 7 loads. Between 4 sets of sheets, towels, and each laundry basket for every person in our household, laundry sure does add up. A Costco-sized bottle of Tide Original is just what every family needs to make sure laundry detergent won’t run out soon, because the laundry sure won’t run out!
What are your essential household items from Costco? P&G items are my go-to items because of the details that go into all their products. From the quilting in Bounty Advanced to the powerful cleaning formula in Cascade Platinum Advanced Power Action Pacs, P&G has families like ours in mind when they create their products. They know that moms like me want to get the job done right the first time!
