As the setting of the summer sun begins to remind us, fall is here. While the days grow shorter and the nights get a little colder we are inevitably (though perhaps, reluctantly) reminded that winter is coming, too. A little bit of fall cleaning can help to declutter our homes in anticipation for a season cooped up indoors.

Follow these 10 tips below to cut your costs, not your cleaning power.
