I am always on the lookout for a good deal and anytime I can make something at home rather than buying it at the store, I’m for it! When I read this article from Littlethings.com I knew I wanted to share the cool tips I learned on how to save over $800 Yearly on Household Products!
When you’re shopping for cleaning products, saving 50 cents by going for the generic brand may not seem like big savings, but think about how it adds up over a year, or three years, or ten. Saving a few cents here and there can really snowball into a significant amount.
Of course, if you want to save big money, it might be worth switching over to natural alternatives that you make at home. Personally, I keep a couple jugs of white vinegar in the house at all times, just because vinegar has so many household cleaning uses.
LittleThings decided to do some cost analysis to see exactly how much money we’d save if we took nine basic household cleaning products and swapped them out with homemade natural alternatives. We visited the closest convenience store/pharmacy to our office to price out these various products, and then we figured out how much you’d actually be paying per usage of each products — assuming you’re cleaning your house on a regular schedule.
Not only are the alternatives free of toxins and chemicals, they can literally save you thousands of dollars in the longterm.
According to our calculations, you can save the following amounts of money:
One month: $63.86
One year: $802.57
Two years: $2,407.70
Five years: $4,012.84
Ten years: $8,025.67

Instead of purchasing a 32-oz. shower cleaner at the store, just pour one cup of white vinegar into a spray bottle. Heat up the bottle in the microwave until it’s very warm (you do not have to do this every time you clean your shower).
Next, pour 1 T. of dish soap into the spray bottle.
Voila! You have your own natural shower cleaner sure to get off mildew without damaging your grout.
It’s simple tips like these that will have you saving over $800 a year on cleaning products. Plus you will reap the benefits of not having toxic fumes floating around your home.
