Keep a Cleaning Kit

Valuable time can be wasted looking for the right cleaning supplies for the job. Take an hour to assemble a well-stocked cleaning kit, and you'll save more time later on. Get some kind of plastic bin or box and keep all the supplies for the entire house in one spot. This should include all towels, sponges, dusters and cleaning solutions. If you really want to be on the ball, you can also keep a couple of necessities in each room for the quickie daily cleanings.
