I've experimented with many many different ways to conserve money.
Makes me chuckle to think about all the things I have tried.
Mostly though, I'm encouraged by the valuable deals.
Yet the fact is, no one really cares. I'm sure my husband appreciates it, but I have a hunch he is feigning interest when I display my loot on the island and declare, "LOOK! Look what I got for $2.34!"
And so it goes with the laundry soap.
I've been making my own for almost a year.
It works, is amazingly economical, is not a difficult process, and I've upgraded the look from a 5 gallon Lowes bucket to pretty glass bottles. (recycled $1.50 Heinz vinegar bottles)
Oh, I have a feeling that picture of soap will send me down memory lane in about 30 years.
Ahhhh yes, those days of business start up, making soap and clipping coupons.
And speaking of memory lane, I hope this is one I will never forget.
Last week I hopped into bed next to Lily after she was asleep.
I kept staring at her sweet little pigtail,
thinking about what an amazing perk it is to be able to
crawl into bed for a nap on a sunny afternoon next to my little 3 year old.
If I have to make soap the rest of my life...so be it.
