Spring is in the air, and for some reason I just want to open up all the doors and windows to let the house air out while I go to town decluttering and cleaning. Yep, it's Spring and time to clean. Who's with me?

But if you're worried about the cost of new cleaning supplies and organizers, never fear! This is Savings.com after all, and we gotta find the best way to save some cash while we dig into the dirt and grime. 

1. Check out the Dollar Tree. Everything is a $1 in there, and they've got everything from new dish scrubby brushes (is scrubby a word? IDK - it is now!), to cute containers that help you organize all your things around the house. 
2. Clean it up with baking soda and vinegar! These two items work wonders and are super inexpensive to use. Mix 1 part white vinegar with 3 parts water in a spray bottle, and you've got yourself a nice cleaner. Use baking soda to scrum the dirt and grime, and you're set when it comes to cleaners! Plus, they are super inexpensive!

3. Use coupons at the drugstores for supplies. Rite Aid, Walgreens, and CVS all have great programs that allow you to get stuff for free every week! This is a great way to get your cleaning and/or organizing supplies for free or really cheap! Want to learn more? Join us at one of our Drugstore Saving Secrets classes in your area. 

4. Visit your local thrift store. If you're needing new things to help you get organized, and refresh the house, Goodwill and other thrift stores are a great place to start. This is especially true if you find that you need to get that new bookshelf to organize your hoard of cookbooks (or is that just me?).

What are some of your tips for saving while Spring cleaning?
