Spring is upon us and it's time for a deep clean. However, you don't have to wipe out your wallet when it comes to tidying up your home. Here are some ways to cut the cost of cleaning.
Many of us use pre-moistened wipes to scrub surfaces, but their convenience comes at a price. The disposable nature of these wipes also means you're throwing out money each time you clean, literally.
Instead of throwing cash in the trash, try making your own cleaning solution at home. First, mix some white vinegar, a few drops of tea tree oil and a few ounces of castile soap together. Then add one cup of water to create your mixture, which can be used right from the bowl or poured into a convenient spray bottle.
The solution is great for cleaning stainless steel, glass and other surfaces, and you can find all of these items at your local health food store for about $31. Now, $31 may seem like a lot of money to shell out up front, but these ingredients should outlast that $70 you would be spending in disposable wipes per year.
If you have leftovers of your all-natural products, don't worry. White vinegar and castile soap have many uses, and can be mixed with other common ingredients to clean, polish and deodorize.
For extra savings, skip the paper towels and use old T-shirts instead. They're more durable and can be washed and reused. Plus, you already own them, so there's no need to spend additional money. Happy cleaning!

Women Who Light up the World ….By B. J. Gallagher
We are women who light up the world- with our beauty, our intelligence, and charm.
Our eyes sparkle as we talk and laugh among ourselves. Our smiles radiate warmth and comfort to those who love us. Our faces beam happily when we’re engaged in fulfilling work.
We shine, we illuminate, we enlighten, we dazzle.
We glow softly when contented- and burn brightly when passionate. We are always lighting up the world, one way or another.
But who’s the keeper of the flame?
Who will fill our lamps in order for us to light up the world?
We must do it for ourselves, dear sisters- and for each other. We must fill our own lamps first, not last.
We must commit to our own well-being and self-care, lest our oil runs low and our flames flicker out.
For a woman whose flame has extinguished can no longer fulfill her mission in life- lighting up the world.
So take some time, sweet sisters, To rest, recoup, relax, and regroup.
Take time to fill your lamp,
The world needs your flame- but first, you need your oil.
