Thrifty Tip - Mopping
If you're like me, and you can't stand sticky spots on the floor, you probably have a Clorox ready mop or the Swiffer version. The mop starter kit isn't too expensive, especially if you wait until there's a $5 off coupon for one in the paper. The mop comes with the solution and the mopping pads to get you started, and then you "must" buy refills when those run out. However, I've found that you can make your own mopping solution (whatever you regularly use) and refill the mop solution dispenser and it works just as well. As for the one-time-only pads, you can use tri-fold cloth diapers, or even a cut-up old towel in the pad's place. Simply wash after using, and you're good to go for the next time!
