Another area where one can over accumulate stuff is cleaning supplies. I've done it on many an occasion. Over the years I've manage to streamline the items I need to keep my home neat and tidy without overdoing it.
This is what I keep:
Fabulosa all-purpose cleaner
White distilled vinegar
Spot Shot carpet stain remover
Sprayway window cleaner
Mean Green cleaner & degreaser
That is pretty much it. I use the Fabulosa diluted in a spray bottle for everyday cleaning. I pour a little into a bucket of warm water for big cleaning jobs. It also makes a nice carpet cleaner and deodorizer. I buy it at the dollar store and Walmart has it too in larger bottles. I find a small bottle lasts a very long time.
Sink cleanser for sinks, tubs and toilets. Bleach for stain removal. Spot Shot is one of the best stain removers and I use it on carpet, upholstery and clothing with hard to remove stains. Mean Green is a fantastic degreaser and I use it mostly for keeping my stove and the surrounding area clean and grease free.
Because I don't have a lot of supplies I keep them all organized neatly under my kitchen sink in an old tote I've had forever. My bucket serves double duty as my kitchen trash can.
I don't use a broom inside preferring the vacuum cleaner instead. It resides in the hall closet in a space reserved specifically. I keep my rags together in a red enamel bowl on display in my laundry room. Decorative and functional.
