Not sure how many of you homeschool? and if you do, there is a wonderful community called The Homeschool Lounge that you may want to check out.
They have so many different groups in one community to join. I am moderating the Frugal Living forum and would love to see some of you join us. It's a great way to learn new tips on saving and also to meet others.
Sign up as a new customer at Alice.com and get $10 off a $50 purchase. I have never really taken the time to search this site until now and I am regretful that I didn't find it sooner!
They include manufacturer coupons off prices and always have FREE shipping. I figure why run around Walmart with my head cut off when I can have these household products that I have to buy anyways delivered to my doorstep. Works for me!
I keep being reminded how much money is being spent on doing laundry. As if the detergent was pricey enough just throw in the softener and whew!
I have tried a few of these homemade laundry recipes with great success. I have not tried the vinegar yet in the rinse cycle. From what I have read it works really well.
I use Phel's Naptha for the bars and instead of hand grating mine I found an old manual flour grinder that does the trick. It really is an easy process and can save a ton of money. Not to mention, it's probably better on washer and clothing.
