Spring is here, which if you’re like us, means spring cleaning. But in the 21st century, that also means dealing with digital clutter. Think those photos on your phone, or those files on your computer. And we won’t even talk about our email inboxes. But that’s all about to change for all of us, thanks to Joshua Zerkel, our special guest on this week’s Spawned Parenting Podcast with Kristen and Liz. He’s got tons of smart tips and tricks when it comes to digital clutter.

About this week’s sponsor: Ritual 

Ritual vitamins for women, delivered right to you door | Sponsor

We’re excited to welcome back our sponsor Ritual, the obsessively-researched multivitamins for women that get delivered right to your door. We know full well how hard it can be to eat healthy, especially as busy parents. But even when we can fit in a salad or smoothie, it turns out that we’re still probably not getting all the nutrients we need. Well, that’s where Ritual comes in. Their Ritual Essential for Women helps fill the gaps in our diets. Their no-nausea capsule design is gentle on an empty stomach, and they’ve added a mint tab in every bottle to keep things fresh, so you don’t get that fishy aftertaste (you know what we’re talking about). They really know how to get busy moms to take their vitamins!

And for data nerds just like us: all of Ritual’s vegan-friendly, sugar-free, non-GMO, gluten-free, and allergen-free ingredients—and their sources—are out there for the whole world to see.
