Organized Cleaning Arsenal

If you are like me, as soon as Spring is here you are ready for a clean and organized house!  Of course, we all need some inspiration before we just jump in! The way I find inspiration has always been magazine’s.  Don’t get me wrong, I love looking around online but I always grab my favorite magazines for those times when I’m sitting in my car waiting on my kids!

Target currently has a great deal going, when you purchase both April issues of Real Simple and Cooking Light at the same time you will receive a $5 gift card!  As always, these are while supplies last so be sure you don’t miss out!

I was super inspired by an article in Real Simple titled, “the all-star arsenal.” I decided to create my own Organized Cleaning Arsenal! What inspired me most was the idea of having my arsenal all in one place.  Organized all together so I would be able to carry it all from room to room as I cleaned.  Of course, I had to make my organized cleaning arsenal bucket super cute!

I picked up a plain green bucket and chevron duck tape that I thought had a fun Spring vibe to it.

I estimated how far apart to make my stripes by using the width of the roll of duck tape.

Then I loaded it down with all of my favorite cleaning supplies!

I think it turned out really cute! All of my supplies are organized together making it much easier to move from room to room!  I can just grab it and go.  It will also store perfect under the sink.

Now that I have my cleaning supplies organized and ready to go I can move on to the next awesome article called A-to-Z Guide to Cleaning Almost Anything!  Don’t forget to hurry to Target to purchase your copies of Real Simple and Cooking Light magazines  AND the $5 Target gift card!




  1. I love the Real Simple magazine and this cute bucket is motivation to get more spring cleaning done! Great post!

  2. I was the same way with my supplies…all over the place! I’ve already started today using the bucket method! Love it!

  3. Totally into the spring clean! I’m swooning over the cute bucket! What a fun idea!

  4. Love the Duck Tape on the bucket…certainly makes cleaning brighter! I’ve got to get started spring cleaning around here. Thanks for the inspiration.

  5. I love magazines too! and I love Target 🙂 I need to create a cleaning arsenal! Lord knows I need to clean!

  6. I am a magazine junkie and need to get to Target to get my copies of Cooking Light and Real Simple. I enjoy both of those magazines and always get great ideas from them. Your cleaning bucket is a great idea. Having everything in one spot makes cleaning that much easier.

  7. I love the way Target offers gift cards with certain purchases. Sweet bucket Sonya, great idea to keep all the cleaning supplies in an easy tote.

  8. Love your bucket!! Wanted to pass along a tip, I clean houses and am always looking for the best supplies and ways to organize them. Also, looking for the best deal on the price. I have been making my own cleaning solution and love it! So do my clients. I bought a good spray bottle, fill it half with vinegar and then finish with hot tap water, last I add about 2-3 tsp Dawn dish washing liquid and gently mix. This cleans everything, tile, tubs, toilets, stainless steel and leaves a beautiful shine. Disinfects as you clean. It cleans tile floors beautifully but you do have to rinse so for floors I have a separate bottle with no Dawn. Give it a try and see what you think!
