I found this great story about getting ready for spring cleaning and saving money at the same time. The reason that I found this article so helpful is because in this down economy this is a great way to make your own products, save the environment and save some money. I also like how the author points out alternative uses for old dresses and pillowcases that may not be suitable for donating, but can be repurposed. Check it out. Maybe you can use some of these helpful tips to spruce up your home and go green.
