Well, this is the longest break I’ve taken from my blog. I needed it though. I’ve been homeschooling, teaching piano, teaching a speech & debate club, getting involved in an international student ministry, driving kids and living life. I will resume posting, but only as time allows. I have a very full plate.

I have been tired of half my grocery bill going to laundry detergent and toilet paper. I’ve been looking for acceptable alternatives for items that needlessly suck money out of my wallet. I have a lot of recipes to share with you, but will only do so after I try them, tweak them and accept them. I refuse to use recipes that are not up to my standards. I currently have 4 recipes on my Houshold Recipes page. If you’re interested, please take a look.

I’ll let you know when I come up with a toilet paper alternative.  No, the Sears catalog, leaves and expired coupons aren’t acceptable.  :)

    Lisa, I tried the dishwashing detergent recipe and did not like it at all. There was always a film left on my dishes and on the inside door of the dishwasher. It remained even when I reduced the amount of detergent and put it through an extra rinse cycle! Any suggestions?

  2. Lisa Said,

    Yes, I know exactly what you’re talking about. I add about a teaspoon of dish soap (Palmolive) in it. It has eliminated that problem. I’ll update the page. Glad to know I wasn’t the only one with that dust. Thanks.
