Money Saving Tips

In my new job as a domestic engineer, I’ve been looking for ways to save money.  Here are some of my favorites.

* We make our own foam soap.  Use an empty foam soap dispenser, pour a little bit of regular soap (about 1 Tablespoon) in the bottom, fill the rest of the container up with warm water, shake and use.  Works great for dish soap also.

*Use vinegar instead of fabric softener (the smell goes away when the clothes are dry) and jet dry.

*Netflix!  We used to rent movies all the time until we got Netflix.  They even have a large assortment of work-out videos so I ended up cancelling my gym membership.  I’d rather do a video at home, while Garrett is napping than lose family time at the end of the day when I’m more tired anyways.

*We switched from paper napkins to cloth.  Cute designs too!

*I make my own laundry soap.  Doesn’t take very long and is great for sensitive skin. 

*Allowance!  Mike and I get a predetermined amount every so often to spend on whatever we want.  I use mine mostly for clothes and Mike likes to save his for bigger purchases like guns.  Saves a lot of fights and helps keep spending down.

*Tide pen and Shout wipes!  Gets rid of stains before they set, save clothes!  Baby wipes also are great for cleaning up spills!

    Dawn dish soap is an excellent stain remover, also.
