Good morning, Monday! The best part of my Mondays has become reading all of your great tips for Money Saving Monday. I hope you’ve all brought your A-game today because I need some serious help. We’re talking about cleaning this week so it’s time to share those frugal tips for organizing, homemade cleaners and any other clever ideas you have crafted.
One of the best things I’ve done to save money on cleaning was eliminate the paper waste. I do not buy paper towels. At all. (My visiting cousin will attest to that—she was a bit surprised to find not a one in the house.) Instead, we use dish cloths, cloth napkins and microfiber towels. All can be tossed into the washer after use, rather than the dumpster. It’s not only good for the landfills, but it’s easier on the budget. One inexpensive set of towels will last for years over a package of paper towels that lasts a week. It’s so nice to know that our girls are now using 1 cloth napkin per meal instead of 4 napkins. It makes them feel special, and saves a ton of money every month.
