    Locking Out the Spills and Reducing the Mess

    This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE. All opinions are 100% mine. 

    There is a reason my blog is named Amidst the Chaos. When I was trying to think up the perfect name that would embody our day-to-day lives, I knew it had to be something that would revolve around the busyness and the mess that we often found ourselves in. I remember talking with a close friend about potential names and she said “It should be something the communicates how you guys are always amidst the chaos.” My response to her was, “That’s perfect! That’s the name…Amidst the Chaos!”

    But I didn’t just love the name because it communicated OUR chaos, I loved the thought that perhaps anyone else feeling that their lives were constantly in chaos would be able to immediately relate to and feel more at ease. 

    Having had three kids in less than four years while moving to a new city with no family around…you can imagine the constant chaos that we found (and still find) ourselves in. All three kids are also incredibly active, full of energy and love to create (just like their momma). From the toys to the Lego to the constant stream of crafts and creations, there is just always stuff everywhere in our home.

    And that’s just the “kid-clutter.” Move into the kitchen and it’s a whole other ball game. For my husband and I, we find that when the kitchen is unkept, the whole house will feel “off” so we go to great lengths every single day to make sure that we go to bed with an empty sink and clean counters.

    Having products that can help make the mess a little more manageable is key. Over the years we’ve been using various forms of reusable containers, especially ones that help keep our food fresh for longer. What I’ve often found though is that those containers are never fully leak-proof and they also stain really quickly. I’ve tried switching to glass containers (especially when all the BPA concerns first came out) but with three active little ones, the amount of shattering that kept happening when one would accidentally bump the container off the counter was enough for me to call it quits with those.

    That’s why I was thrilled to discover Rubbermaid’s BRILLIANCE containers. They are 100% leak and spill proof, which is a guarantee, as well as are freezer and dishwasher safe. They are perfectly clear so they look just like glass but are so much lighter and more stackable — because they are plastic! They are also BPA free and will not stain!

    Another amazing feature about the Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE containers is that they have a vent system through the side latches which make it perfect to microwave with the lid on, avoiding any unwanted spills or splatters while reheating.

    The great news about these containers is that they are perfect for any busy family on the go! Toss them into a backpack or briefcase and be confident that they will not spill or shatter. 

    Rubbermaid BRILLIANCE is available at Walmart, Loblaws Superstore, Bed Bath & Beyond, SaveOn/Overwaitea and London Drugs.

    If you are like our family, you don’t need any more chaos added into an already slightly chaotic lifestyle. Having functional products that actually deliver on their promises is key to helping minimize the mess and ultimately enhance all those little areas in your life!

    Here’s to reducing the mess!

    Love & Blessings,
