So I've recently hit a very big financial hardship and I'm going on a financial cleanse so to speak. DH works hard to provide for us and I am a SAHM by circumstance (current location, lack of daycare funds, & mainly lack of transportation due to DH's need of the one car in his incredibly varied work schedule). Anyway, I've made it my "job" so to speak to go hard or go home when it comes to saving for the fam. I've implemented meal planning starting a month ago and have thus far saved over $100 in groceries just by going over our local ads and coupons from the grocery store (Sunday paper is expensive for the amount of coupons I find that I actually USE from it, so we stopped that)
My new mission is to start saving on household items, starting with cleaning supplies. I am looking for a good laundry soap recipe that people have had tried and true experience with. I do live in an apartment and do my laundry once a week at the laundromat as it's actually cheaper than the coin-op machines in our basement. I did find one recipe that intrigues me and I will post it just to make this initial read a little shorter lol. But I'm also loking for other cleaning recipes that you've tried and work well for you. I usually get my cleaning supplies from the $ store as it's cheaper, but along with cheaper seems to come more abrasive chemicals to my countertops as well as my lungs. I am NOT a fan of vinegar, but I realize that if it's ultimately cheaper, I will make the gag reflex sacrifice for the good of our bank account.
thank you ladies.
