Thrifty Thursday..... Laundry for a year for $20.00????

Another week of Thrifty Thursday!
Can not believe all the fun things that I find on pinterest!
This is completely changed my life.
I found this recipe at my new favorite blog
being creative to keep my sanity

Also follow her on her Laurie's Pinterest!

With just having Twins and trying to get out of debt 
( like most we have a bit of it and it just seems to never go away
Especially with two babies in the NICU for 75 days!!!) 
So I am doing everything and anything to make it so we can live 
richer, saving money as we go along. Money that is for the important things in life. 
Making my two baby boys in to two great men with riches of experience and fun. 
I found on Pinterest

I am so Sick of buying laundry soap!! This stuff I found through Pinterest  is amazing not only because it is so much stronger then the store bought soap, but You only have to use 1 Tablespoon per load. This recipe makes a huge cookie jar full of soap ( I got my cookie jar at Wallmart)  
 1 year of laundry soap for less than 20 dollars? 
Seems like a steal to me.!

Seems like the monthly amount I was spending on soap can now go in the cookie jar for savings!

 I love the idea of not having to buy laundry soap all the time anymore. **This laundry soap also works just fine in  HE washers**
Here is the directions to make this great soap! 
Used it today on this nice shut in snow day and it turned out great!! 
Love, love, love it!

1 ~ 4 lb 12 oz box Borax (2.15 kg or 76 oz) found in the detergent isle

1  box Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda 55 oz (3 lb 7 oz) found in the detergent isle

3 bars of Fels-naptha soap, found in the detergent isle

1 medium container of oxyclean or store brand oxyclean (try to get about 3.5 lbs total (1.58 kg)) found in the detergent isle.
(this is optional, I added it into mine because I like the idea of the extra stain fighter and did I mention I have twin baby boys? :)

Next week make sure to check in to see what else thrifty I have going on.....
