Miscellaneous tools you use regularly

Hello all. I have been lurking the forum for a bit, building up my equipment and chemicals to get going with my business. Multiple thousands of dollars later, I have most of the essentials that I need, minus some deliveries I am still waiting on.

So after that little intro, my question is, what are some tools, supplies, things... that you more seasoned cleaners use on a regular basis, that someone who is new to the industry wouldn't normally be thinking of getting? I plan on getting the various quart size sprayer bottles, water pails, possibly some hand scrub brushes, etc., but what are some things that you use on a regular basis that makes the job a little easier for you, or quicker, etc...

Thanks for any input.
