CHALLENGE: do the strip test on your homemade laundry soap n post ur results!

Debt-Free in 1 Year : Homemade Liquid Laundry Soap-NEW Update!:

Does this recipe or others really clean your laundry or not? Im going to answer this qiestion by doing a laundry strip test and post the results here, try the challenge with me!

I found several posts with recipes basically the same on stripping or refreshing towels you can do a search to find those basically you use 1 cup of distilled white vinegar to a load of towels in hot water nothing else added n then you wash a 2 nd time in hot water with only baking soda dry without using any fabric softener.

How i tested my clean clothes was i filled a big gallon or 2 container with hot water n added 1/2 cup baking soda n borax n 1/4 cup white distilled vinegar. Heres some pics: i actually wasnt following my laudry recipe. i started using 2-4 tbsp instead of 2-4 scoops which is a 3/4 cup n yes my clothes were still dirty so back to the correct qty of soap n im going to do another test. Stay tuned!

Intro to my debt free journey-our Dave Jobs

We've really been on this journey for several years but this time it feels like the last because my husband got serious about it. So important that couples are on the same page when trying to achieve debt free status. We knew an increase in income was needed so my husband a nd decided to take a 2nd pt job as a pizza delivery driver 20-25 hours a week. He's been there about 10 weeks now and I was wanting a pt job n I started on his nights off so 3 nights a week for 15 hrs our pto income combined is about $1400 estimate as I've just been there two weeks and our pay is $5.50 per hr not on deliveries, $1.25 per delivery plus tips. We average $8 per hour minus gas. Both of our cars get great gas miles mine 18 mpg n his a bit more so only about $10 more a week in fuel cost. Both our vehicles are paid for n older 2001 n 2002 and if one hits the dust we will cash flow another one both cost under $5k, I've had mine 2 years with no major repairs, my husband has had his 6 months …

Year Round Savings Plan

How to Save Year Round on Your Favorite Foods:

Know Your Options-price comparison
I love rasberries but they're not in season right now for fresh rasberries they sale for 4-5xs as when they're in season but i do have options i could go to the freezer section and find a wide variety of my favorite fruits frozen which would be great for smoothies. Or you can get canned fruits that are not in season right now like pineapple a 16oz can is .99c and mandarins .50c for an 8oz can.

Also for vegetables you have to consider your options and compare prices. Fresh might not always be the best option if it's double the price as when in season. For brocolli we can get a big bunch for .89c right now and you can also get about the same amount already prepared frozen some might get the frozen to save on time of preparing i know i love to find shortcuts to cooking having a toddler under foot full time still. Also for corn, okra, green beans, peas n carrots you might find a better deal in th…

The Benefits of Wisdom

The Benefits of Wisdom
2 My child,[a] listen to what I say,
and treasure my commands.
2 Tune your ears to wisdom,
and concentrate on understanding.
3 Cry out for insight,
and ask for understanding.
4 Search for them as you would for silver;
seek them like hidden treasures.
5 Then you will understand what it means to fear theLord,
and you will gain knowledge of God.
6 For the Lord grants wisdom!
From his mouth come knowledge and understanding.
7 He grants a treasure of common sense to the honest.
He is a shield to those who walk with integrity.
8 He guards the paths of the just
and protects those who are faithful to him.
