the laundry situation

Are you always looking for ways to do things better?  To save a little money.  To become more efficient.  Me too!  There are so many options of what I could do.  I like doing things well and moving on to the next thing on my list.

Laundry is one thing that is always on the list.  I like doing laundry just fine- but it would really be nice to have the satisfaction of having empty laundry baskets for half an hour. (What does the bottom of a laundry basket even look like?  Who knows).  I do a load of laundry most days.  A friend of mine does her laundry one weekend A MONTH as a family of six!  How awesome is that?  If there is a way to do things in bulk & eliminate doing the same task every single day- I’m jazzed.

My laundry suggestion for you: Make your own laundry detergent.  I’ve been using this recipe for a year now (that was shared by one of my super smart “green” friends).  The recipe lasts our family nine months and costs $2 to make!  Compare that to what you’re currently spending.

One thing to check off the shopping list: laundry detergent.  You’re welcome.

What is one thing you do to make make things easier and cheaper at the same time?

  1. The recipe sounds wonderful… only problem is: I have no idea where to find the ingredients- especially living overseas!!
