So a bit of a spin off from the "what motivates you" post.

I am curious what you ladies do that helps cut costs besides the obvious: BF, and CD.

Buying organic and such can actually be rather costly, so I am curious if anyone has tips, or recipes. Natural things you do to save you money!

I just recently starting making my own organic almond milk :) Super easy! One cup of almonds soaked over night, add the a blender with 4 cups of water. Add a little honey or vanilla if wanted and strain really well, or filter.

I said before I want to make my own soaps/shampoo bars but have not gotten to it. I know once I start this will be cost effective.

Thought this would be fun to share with everyone!

Have crock pot days where you make and freeze healthy meals instead of buying processed prefrozen bag/box meals
