Spring Cleaning Supplies and Resources | Family Economics
Spring cleaning is around the corner! Are you ready to clean out those dust bunnies or organize your pantry, closets and everything else? While one benefit of spring cleaning is to make a few bucks, you can also save a few bucks on your spring cleaning supplies.
Find cleaning tools at your local dollar store. This is my all-time favorite place to pick up those items that you don't always think about like a new sink stopper, sponges and baskets to organize all of the cleaning supplies.
Use coupons to save on cleaning supplies. The thing I love about SC Johnson products is that there are great coupons and plenty of them on brands like Pledge®, Windex®, Scrubbing Bubbles®, Glade® and more! I can shop and save on items to get my windows shiny after a dreary winter and keep my home smelling fresh.

Review a cleaning checklist. Making a cleaning checklist and referring to it often is a good way to remember all those details that you would likely forget. I keep mine in a portable box with cards so I don't forget. You could use this cleaning list to help you keep track. Whatever works for you is what is important.
Get your kids involved! Our boys have a list of regular chores they follow. For spring cleaning, they will each have the potential to earn a few more bucks if they get involved. Since they have some pretty big saving goals, they are highly motivated to try to earn more!
How do you save time and money on spring cleaning?
