I LOVE PINTEREST.I have about 8 million projects that are on my "wish I could make that" board. Now, it's not that I don't think I can make this stuff. I'm decently crafty. It's just a time issue at the moment. I'm learning to juggle taking care of a baby, the house, the dogs, and being back to my full time teaching job. I'm by no stretch of the imagination a neat freak, but there are some things that I've had to just come to terms with that won't get done as often as I'd like.
back to the pinterest... I've found little projects here and there that I use as 'me' time to take and do. It's mostly stuff that will end up saving money around the house. I think I'll start blogging about this stuff, mostly so I don't forget how I did it if it's great, and if it's a failure, I can either not do it anymore, or try it a different way next time.
Today, I made dish washer soap. Here's the link I found on pinterest: http://frugallygreen.blogspot.com/search/label/Saving%20Money
If you don't want to go find it, here's the recipe:
2 cups borax
2 cups baking soda
4 packets lemon koolaid (sugar free)
You just mix all the dry stuff together and put 2Tbs of it in your dish washer. The vinegar is for the rinse aid. I have a load running now. I'll update as to how the dishes turned out...
