Save Money with These 14 Homemade Laundry Detergent, Static, and Stain Cleaners

When I bought my High Efficiency (HE) washing machine I had a heck of a time finding a HE laundry detergent that didn’t make me itch, cleaned our clothes, AND didn’t make the washer stink. At the time I couldn’t find a HE laundry detergent that accomplished all three important tasks and ended up making my own powdered laundry detergent. Problem solved.  I had leftover detergent from the old washing machine that let me tell you,it  is NOT a great idea to use in a HE washing machine! However, that liquid laundry detergent is great for pretreating laundry stains so it didn’t go to waste.  Slowly but surely I started making other laundry cleaning supplies like laundry stain spray, static cling fighter, wrinkle releaser, dryer sheets and wool wash save time (it takes me less than 15 minutes to make this stuff) and money. It also cuts down on our household waste too. High fives all around!  Pin this list of ideas to your Pinterest boards for later! Share it with your friends Laundry S

Lunch It Punch It

When I’m trying to eat healthy on the cheap or just eat lunch on the cheap, packing a lunch is the way to go. I’m good for a while but the siren call of easy eating lunch out usually takes over and foils my plans.

My blogging buddy Andi and her co-workers came up with a great idea to help them stick to their goal of packing healthy lunches while still treating themselves to a lunch out from time to time. It’s called Lunch It Punch It

Lunch It Punch It works so well for them in their lunchroom that they decided to share it with the world!

The concept is simple and free. Print a Lunch It Punch It Card. Pack a lunch, eat it, and mark it on your Lunch It Punch Card. After 10 lunches, you reward yourself with a lunch out. We have reward cards for everything; why not make one for you?

Lunch It Punch It is full of lunch ideas and what to use to pack your lunch so it doesn’t look like you stole your kid’s lunchbox. Seriously, do they even make good-looking lunch bags and holders from non-toxic materials for adults? Everything I see is for elementary school kids. *pout*

What do you do for workday lunches?
