So, having clarified that a little, what are some of your favorite frugal tips?
The Girl really wants to make a batch of homemade laundry soap (which she saw on 17 Kids & Counting), and I already make most of my own household cleaners. I am trying to decide which soap to use for the laundry soap... Fels Naptha, Zote, or Dr. Bronner's? I've read pros and cons on all of them. I think I am leaning toward the Dr. Bronner's, as it is a natural product, and I am not sure about the others. Plus I like some of the scents!
And we eat a lot of veggies and fruit, especially in season produce; buy bulk goods when we can; keep the heaters off most of the time; etc., but I am sure there are things we haven't thought of yet.
Any tips on saving money? What are your frugal habits? (And please, if it involves flushing only once a week, or eating goat heads, I'd prefer not to know)
