Grandma’s Pure and Natural Lye Soap

Grandma’s Pure and Natural Soap Review There are so many chemicals and ingredients you can’t pronounce in today’s commercial soaps that it’s time to just go back to basics.

Keep Butter Fresh and Spreadable with the Butter Bell® Crock

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. Butter Bell® Crock Review Don’t you hate when you want to butter your toast, pancakes ect, but the butter in your dish is so hard that it’s not spreadable? So you have to wait for the heat to melt it, or you end of with […]

Make It Monday: Homemade Disinfectant Spray

Make It Monday: Homemade Laundry Detergent

     I thought I would share this recipe for homemade laundry soap that I finally got around to trying out (after months of actually having the ingredients on hand). I got this recipe from Living on a Dime, though there are various recipes out there that use pretty much the same ingredients.

Thrifty Thursday: Free “Perfect” Portions

       Do you ever just want to use only one boneless chicken breast for a meal? Casseroles, stir-fry, whatever–sometimes all you need is one (when your family is small).      Well, I used to store them in the freezer in pairs in quart size bags. It seemed like a waste of space and bags to just put one […]
