Well the laundry soap debacle continues. To set the record straight, I have only been using half of the suggested amount on the back of the jug and STILL am not getting 35 loads out of that thing. But I remember my friend Laura saying she made her own laundry soap so that’s what I’m trying this week.
Here’s a great recipe that I found. I’m going to give it a shot and then break down the cost for you in a few days. I’ll do a little review and let you know whether I feel like stuff is getting clean or not. And for all you out there with the new front load washers (I am so full of envy) they say that this soap doesn’t suds up much and can be used in the HE washers too!
Breakfast – Oatmeal with milk & brown sugar and Orange Juice to drink
Lunch – Leftovers, some of us had baked potatoes, some had spaghetti and some had PB & J with peaches. I love doing this because normally my leftovers will sit in the fridge and go bad. Plus it’s one less meal I have to cook.
Dinner – We had company again….Roast Crock Pot Chicken (this is so easy and I’ll save the carcass to boil down and make chicken noodle soup) 2 cans of corn spiced up, and Peasant Bread. (makes two loaves….I froze one for a lazy day) $5.60 total for dinner.
