Knowzz App


There is nothing better than a personal recommendation or reference, right? Let me introduce you to a fabulous new free app called, Knowzz, which is designed to make your life so much easier!  The Knowzz app finds local services recommended by people you already know and trust:  your friends, family, neighbors and colleagues.

In the world of parenting, I think we tend to rely even more on recommendations from trusted sources.  Because we want the best for our kids.  Personally, I tend to ask for references in my mommy circle of friends and post questions on social media.

The Knowzz app now creates the opportunity for you to be part of peer-to-peer network that gives you access to trusted and recommended local service providers that you need immediately.

As a mama, think about all of the local services you or your family may use on a weekly/monthly/annual basis.

Here are just a handful – pediatricians, dentists, nutritionists, allergists, babysitters, yoga instructors, plumbers, pool services, pest control, hair salon, nail salon, attorneys, an accountant…and the list goes on and on.

No more scrolling down random online reviews (by people you don’t even know!), or having to poll your entire Facebook community to ask for a pediatric dentist recommendation in your own neighborhood.  Sounds good, right?!  Read more to see how to get started.

How does the Knowzz App work?

Knowzz is available for iOS and Android, and offers users (like you!) instant access to service providers that your friends use and recommend.

After you download the app, you will be asked to sync your contacts.  Don’t worry – Knowzz will not share your contacts.  They treat all contact information as strictly proprietary.  The app simply needs access to your contacts so that you can share recommendations within your peer group.

After your contacts are synced with the app, any business or services that you already have saved in your contacts will pop up – you can choose to give them a “thumbs up” and recommend them – or leave them unchecked if you would not like to recommend them.

Next, the app will surf your area for potential businesses, and you can start looking for what you need.  You can also start inviting your friends to join this free service too.

Think about it this way – the more friends that are on the app, the more trusted recommendations you will get…and be able to give in return!

What can I expect?

Knowzz is all about sharing positive recommendations.  This is not a platform for negative reviews…this is a community of local friends, neighbors and colleagues that will give you the “stamp of approval” on a local service you may need.

This is an online forum of people you trust…and a way to accrue a fantastic library of local recommended services.

I encourage you to download and check it out! I think this is such a cool idea, and can’t wait to put it into action for myself.  Just the other day I was polling my Facebook network for a recommended martial arts studio for my four-year-old…and this is exactly the type of thing that Knowzz app would be perfect for!

A Tiny Oranges Giveaway

Get excited, mamas!!!  Knowzz is hosting a Tiny Oranges’ giveaway of two $100 Amazon gift cards for new users “In the Knowzz” who download the app and get started by making 3 recommendations. Use the Rafflecopter form below for the download link and more entry options!

Winners will be chosen at random, good luck!

TIDY Orange County Cleaning Service [Giveaway]

Tidy Cleaning Service


I can’t even tell you how much I love it when I speak on the phone to a new sponsor and find myself genuinely EXCITED about their business.

This was the experience I had last week when speaking with one of the TIDY cleaning service owners, Kristen, about TIDY and what makes it special.

Please note: TIDY is giving away a 2 1/2 hour TIDY + cleaning service to one lucky OC winner today – make sure to enter below!

TIDY cleaning service is not just a house cleaner, but a homekeeper, offering affordable recurring plans for Orange County individuals and families to help keep their homes clean and tidy.

5-Star Hotel Details


TIDY wants to make you feel like a pampered resort guest in your own home.

In fact, the genesis behind the TIDY concept was to give people the “just walked into my hotel room at the end of the day” feeling.

You know that feeling?

When you come back to your hotel room and find that it has been cleaned, tidied up, and left with special touches like waters or mints?

TIDY wants you to feel like that when you walk into your home.

That is why they call themselves homekeepers, because caring for someone’s home goes beyond basic cleaning.


TIDY Homekeepers


TIDY homekeepers are carefully screened, background checked, insured, bonded and are required to attend rigorous training on the efficient TIDY cleaning process.

Donned in signature TIDY polos, the TIDY fairies will use their Dyson vacuums, color coded cleaning cloths (by room), and Method cleaning products to make your home sparkle.

Attention is in the details, so don’t be surprised if you find your throw carefully arranged on your couch, or a mint on your pillow.


Affordable OC House Cleaning 

Okay, okay, sounds great, but how much does it cost? That’s what you are thinking, right? I was.

TIDY is a recurring homekeeping service and more affordable than you might think. By recurring, it means you must sign up for a regular cleaning schedule ranging from multiple times a week to once every one to three weeks.

This way the TIDY fairies can ensure that your home stays nice and tidy, just the way you like it. But don’t worry, you can cancel anytime.

Payments are made via credit card, and automatically billed on the day of service. LOVE THIS.

There are three basic types of services ranging from $40 – $240. 


The TIDY is their starting service offered at a minimum recurrence of once a week and focuses on the areas that are most used.


The TIDY + is offered at a minimum occurrence of every other week, and includes the TIDY areas plus two additional areas.  I am going to be getting a TIDY + in the upcoming weeks so I can tell you exactly how it works.


The Mighty TIDY is a deep cleaning spanning 4 hours. Two homekeepers will work to make sure every nook and cranny is scrubbed and sparkly. This can be a regular service, or some can choose to do this service first to get everything super clean, and then go on a recurring TIDY or TIDY + schedule.


 TIDY perks you should know about: 

~ You can schedule your service by calling their front desk, or easily schedule via the free TIDY – Home Cleaning app. In the app, you can leave special notes for your homekeeper with special projects or points of focus.

~ Payment is done through CREDIT CARD. No worrying about running to the ATM to get money, payment is done online (including gratuity which is included), so payment is processed day of service totally hassle-free.

~ Referrals are deeply appreciated. Refer a new client to TIDY and you will receive a beautiful bouquet of flowers for your shiny, tidy home.


Hooray! It’s a Tiny TIDY Giveaway!
