Love it or hate it, spring cleaning is upon us. But with everyone spending extra time at home these days, a spring refresh is also likely in order for many Canadians.
A refresh involves a few decor touches alongside some key household upgrades that will enhance your at-home routine and overall sense of wellbeing in your space. And the best part – it can be done in a budget-friendly way – who knew?!
We spoke to Canadian lifestyle blogger and entrepreneur, Monika Hibbs, who shared her tips on giving your home a spring refresh with premium and pristine refurbished items at a fraction of the cost of buying brand new. Monika’s first tip is to focus on items you know will add value in your daily life. Splurge sensibly on products you have been holding off on upgrading. "If you’ve had your eye on an espresso machine to elevate your mornings, treat yourself to a premium product without breaking the bank by shopping Certified Refurbished on eBay. I bought a refurbished De’Longhi Magnifica S Espresso Machine, and now I start my days with a lavender latte in hand."
Need to shake up the mood? Music is one of the best ways to instantly uplift a home. Monika suggests looking for a home speaker that is high quality in sound, aesthetically pleasing, and doesn’t take up too much space. "Playing good music while cooking in the kitchen with my kids puts us all in an awesome mood, so we recently upgraded to a Certified Refurbished Bose SoundLink Micro Bluetooth speaker from eBay. Beyond the great sound quality, the speaker came in pristine condition, so I had fun making it part of my decor by styling it on a shelf with a vase full of fresh cut flowers."
What better time than spring to bring more colour to your home? But put down the paint brush – adding fresh pops of colour is as easy as going to your local fruit market. Monika likes to embrace the season by having bountiful fruit bowls out on display, and ready to enjoy. "I love juicing my favourite fruits – it’s a healthy and fun habit for the whole family, plus it brings great hits of colour to the table. We juice a lot in my household these days so I wanted to make sure I bought a juicer that would last. When I saw that the Certified Refurbished Breville The Juice Fountain Cold Juicer came with a free two-year warranty from eBay, it was an easy purchase decision."
WHY SHOP CERTIFIED REFURBISHED FROM EBAY?
For Monika, eBay is a trusted site where she can shop confidently when purchasing Certified Refurbished items. "These products are guaranteed to look, feel, and work like new and come with all the assurances of buying new, including a best-in-class two-year warranty and hasslefree returns, plus a Money Back Guarantee. Shopping Certified Refurbished is also an opportunity to access premium like-new products at up to 40 per cent less than buying new from popular brands including Bose, Breville, Dell, De’Longhi, HP, JBL, and Lenovo."
