The weather starts warming up in the spring. It is also a really good time to put some effort into cleaning your home. Fortunately, spring cleaning doesn’t have to be expensive. Not sure where to start? Here are some money-saving spring cleaning tips.

Good Housekeeping recommend that you steam clean your microwave. Start by filling a large microwave safe bowl with one cup of water and a chopped-up citrus fruit (lemon or lime). Add several tablespoons of vinegar and stick the bowl inside the microwave.

Turn the microwave on “high” and wait for the solution to boil. The window of the microwave should be steamy. Let it cool for five minutes before you open the door. Wipe the inside of the microwave with a sponge.

Real Simple has advice for making your trash smell better. Place a couple of dryer sheets on the bottom of the can. Dryer sheets that have already been used will do! They will absorb spills and help to mask orders.

The Spruce advises that you start your spring cleaning by clearing the clutter. Sort your belongings into four categories: trash, give away, store, or put away. You can do this as you go through your spring cleaning routine. Move the clutter out as soon as possible by bringing those items to a donation box, a charity, or by having a yard sale.

In addition, The Spruce also suggests that you keep cleaning products to a minimum. You might need little more than a good all-purpose cleaner and some microfiber cloths. Those two items together could be used on most (if not all) surfaces of your home.

Budgeting Couple likes to start spring cleaning work from the top down. Start by removing the cobwebs from the ceiling, and end your cleaning by sweeping the floor. Don’t forget to wipe off the walls, clean the windows, and remove the dust and dirt from the blinds and drapes.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
