Thank God It's Black Friday? Nope, I don't think so. Well, at least not for me.  In past years I was out there with the masses at 3AM trying to grab those amazing priced items. This year, I decided that there was no good reason for me to go. On a side note, the lack of  funds in our account also helped with that decision to stay all warm and snuggled in my bed. Either way it made me think.......How in the heck did the Holiday Season become so crazy? YIKES!  Am I sounding a little bitter here? I'm not you know, really! It's just that each year, I see so many gifts exchanged between people that bring only temporary happiness (please note that I did not say ALL gifts). I agree that it is so exciting to see their faces as they open their gifts, I just wish that excitement would last.  So,this year I am going to try a different approach with gifting  and as soon as I figure out what that is and I can set my sails for my "Getting through the holidays" destination.

No offense to anyone who did brave the elements today (because you should get a reward) but I just thought that it was not worth it........for me.

It's Been Awhile.....

Hi friends!  It has been awhile since I've posted here.  That crazy little thing called "LIFE" was getting to be a bit more than I could handle so I decided to take a break.  I'll get to some explanations in another post. Hope you all have been well.

A few months back a friend of mine posted a DIY Laundry Detergent recipe that she found and decided to try.  Her reviews were so great that I figured, what the heck, I would try it too. (Again, I am not claiming this as my own creation......I have seen this recipe posted on Pinterest as well.)  I made a comment about this DIY on Twitter the other day and some of you have asked for the recipe so here is my experience.

I was always surprised, and disappointed, by the costs of laundry detergents at the store so I purchased the items and followed instructions and began to tackle the laundry monster that had taken over. What happen you asked?  Excitement and wonder!! Clean, soft, great smelling clothes!  So happy with the outcome we continued to use it until we ran out.  Oh, and here is the best part.....The detergent last us 3 months!

Here is your list of items that you will need with the directions to follow.

For the added benefit of why you might want to try this for yourself I have listed how much the cost for the supplies from Walmart.

1 Bar of Fels-Naptha   .97 cents
1 Box Borax             $3.38
1 Box Washing Soda $3.24

Total $                   $7.59

OK, I feel like I have shared something wonderful with you go........go create!
Until next time :)
