First off, I made my own laundry detergent. When I first started making detergent years ago, Dale (my numbers guy) figured out how much per batch. Well, prices and times change, so I can't give you an exact amount per bottle, but I can tell you we are paying pennies per load of laundry. And when you do 14-20 loads of laundry a week, that is a wonderful thing!
As always, bread making is part of our schedule 3 to 4 times a week!
This morning I cut and colored my own hair (I know the savings on this one... it is to the tune of almost $80!)
There is great satisfaction in "doing it yourself" when you can. I've also started making my own reusable dryer sheets, but haven't perfected it yet. Anyone have any tips on keeping the vinegar smell out? I need to find a balance between enough vinegar to soften and help with static, and not too much to where I smell a little like a pickle. Feel free to put your tips in the comments!
