New Year’s resolutions are tough, aren’t they? Of course, they’re always made with the best of intentions, but we all know that most people are never really able to keep their New Year’s resolutions the way that they would like to. There are a million different New Year’s resolutions that you can make, and of course I probably can’t help you with all of them. BUT. If cleaning is your New Year’s resolution, then that’s right in my wheelhouse. 🙂
Of course, I have to start off by shamelessly suggesting that you go ahead and order a copy of my new book The Cleaning Ninja. Not that I think that my plugging my book in one of my little blog posts is going to make me sell a million copies, but I do think that it’s an incredibly helpful book. It’s the book that’s meant to make you want to clean and to make you feel awesome about the cleaning that you’re doing. Like you’re some kinda Cleaning Ninja or something! 🙂
So checking that out and getting yourself in the right mindset will definitely help, but having the right tools around you to make you feel ultra-prepared for any cleaning challenge will definitely go a long way to helping as well. It’s like how you’re so much happier about the idea of going out in the cold when you know you have the world’s best snow boots to protect your little toes!
I thought I’d put together a little list today of some of my favorite tools that really make a difference in my house cleaning endeavors. Just a list to get you started on your way to a cleaner, tidier, saner home this year. You can expand your collection once you feel that you’re starting to make your way to the next level of Cleaning Ninja-dom. 🙂

Books to Read
I go a little bit more in depth about setting up your “cleaning pantry” so that it really helps you give your home cleaning routine a big boost in The Cleaning Ninja, but just getting the basic tools and a little bit of inspiration into your home is definitely the right place to start!
Do you have any favorite cleaning tools that have just made all the difference for you in your cleaning routine?
