Making My Own Products

Recently I have been trying to save money on many things….and pinterest has been a huge help in that.  There are tons of “make your own” things on there.  I have made my own liquid laundry soap, which works GREAT!  I have made my own fabric softener, which i haven’t tried out yet.  I have made my own dill pickles (although i have been doing that for years).  I have made my own liquid body wash, which works GREAT!  I have made my own dishwasher soap, which i am still not sure if i like or not. I made my own hot chocolate mix, which is not very
good at all….but my baby doesn’t mind it!  I made my own taco seasoning and alfredo mix, both of which are good!  I am going to start making my own tortillas as well as we use a lot of them.  I also refill my swiffer bottles with my own cleaning solution, and use re-usable pads on it.  I refill my foam pump hand wash containers with a tiny bit of dawn dish soap and the rest water.  I make my own febreeze.  I have found doing all of these things has saved a lot of money.  I am happy to never have to buy a lot of these things again!  And most of them take very little time to make!  I am continuously looking for new things to make 🙂
