Does Mom prefer to make her own cleaning supplies? Consider printing out these labels and grab a few spray bottles from the dollar store. Each label contains it's own DIY recipe. If you want to make them all, you'll need eight spray bottles, one 3 oz bottle (poop spray), and one condiment squirt bottle (toilet cleaner). The ingredients are simple and easily found as well. They include things you probably already have like vinegar, water, hydrogen peroxide and a few others.
The best part about making your own cleaning fluids is that you know the ingredients, and they cost a ton less than the store bought brands.
This file fits the variety of Avery labels listed below and is a free PDF file. [Label File]

You may think it is too late in the year for a calendar, but there is still more than half a year left. This stylish calendar is free for you to download, print and cut out. The calendar is designed to print out two months per page. The design is square with rounded corners. Choose your paper and print. You decide how you want to bind it. Maybe with a simple binder clip, or with a brad in the corner, even in a frame (try a clear CD cover). The download is a PDF file and all six pages are in the one document. [PDF file]
