It’s that time of the year where your winter sweaters no longer feel practical, and your house has an embarrassing amount of clutter. This means it may be a good time to get started on that spring cleaning. With some careful planning and organization, spring cleaning can be fun and easy on the pocket. Here’s are some spring cleaning tips:

Make a checklist

Before you get cracking on your first cleaning job, you must make sure you’re up for cleaning in the first place. Make a checklist with the name of every room or area in your home you plan to clean, estimate how long it’ll take you to finish the tasks, and divide them into manageable tasks.

If you can get your roommates or family members to help, divide the tasks in such a manner that each person puts in equal effort. Organizing in advance can help you feel less stressed.

Shop for spring cleaning supplies from the best places

Warehouse clubs, such as Sam’s Club and Costco, let you purchase brand items in bulk. Stores like Amazon and Staples occasionally offer huge discounts on cleaning supplies. Discount retailers like Dollar Tree offer both brand name and generic cleaning items, and hardware stores like Menards and Home Depot run specials on a limited number of in-season items. While some of these items are discounted immediately during checkout, sometimes they require a mail-in-rebate.

Go the DIY way

If your budget is modest, using the supplies you already have at home is a good option. For instance, you can mix two tablespoons of salt and a teaspoon of vinegar for a homemade cleaning solution to eliminate any hard water stains that may be on your sink faucet. Use a cloth to wipe off the stains. Running a squeegee over your couch or carpet can help get rid of pet hair. 

Remember these tips to make your spring cleaning easier and cost-effective!
