March and April bring glorious sales on spring cleaning supplies.

Big box stores such as Target and Walmart have deals on cleaning supplies. Even grocery stores such as Publix does too.

And I always buy my paper towels and toilet paper from Amazon because you can get good deals when you know how to find them. The cost is consistently cheaper than Costco and the big huge box gets delivered to my doorstep so I don’t have to lug it in and out of the car. Score!

Want to quickly deep clean? Use steam! I love my Bissell steam mop and Amazon will deliver it right to your door too!
