I have quicken setup with a budget I know where EVERY dime goes
Write out a grocery list and stick to it UNLESS you leave a major item off and I don't mean a SPLURGE
buy whats on sale but check to make sure it is a REAL sale.
Cream of mushroom soup on sale at kroger was 10/10 its only .60 everyday at Dollar General so keep a price book.
Check to see if that purchase at that bulk store is really a good deal.

I am a proud wife to a hard working man Russ
and I have two wonderful kids Hannah and Will!

Well - I have NO income other than what I make over on Etsy - so I am trying to just use that $$ to re-invest in my business right now.

We just learned that one of our tenants is moving out Sept 1st so now going into Winter $$ will be even tighter.

We spend a fortune on laundry soap and come to find out you don't even need as much as it says. When we got our water softener put in a few weeks ago they told us we could use even less than we were before Conditioned & Softened Water for Laundry & Home Cleaning. I am going to make my own laundry soap now and use less of it and save a ton! I think I might add some fresh lavender to my mix to give a natural but fragrant sent.

This is the recipe I found:
2 Bars of Lever Soap
1 cup of Borax (20 Mule Team)
1 cup Oxyclean
2 cups of Washing Soda (Arm & Hammer)
5 gallon bucket with lid

Shred the bars of soap. Boil 8 cups of water after water is boiling slowly add soap. Reduce heat and stir until soap has dissolved, continue stirring for about 5 minutes.

Put 3 gallons of water in bucket, add borax, washing soda and Oxyclean. Add soapy hot water to bucket and stir. Cover and let sit for 24 hours
