I loved last weeks Penny Pinching Party and all of the fabulous things that everyone is doing to save money. Here are some of my my favorites:
If I featured you, don't forget to grab the "I Was Featured" button on the side bar.
I LOVE this post about How to Make Foaming Hand Soap by The Common Cents Home.
I have been doing this for a couple of years, but without the marbles. It really makes your soap go a long way and is a lot more fun for the kids to use. I think I am going to have to put marbles in mine now, because it looks more decorative and will help mix the soap too.
C.R.A.F.T. shows us how to use recycled gift wrap. I just love how colorful the box is and how she didn't have to buy gift wrap that would just get thrown in the garbage. I looked around her blog and she has a LOT of really great ideas.
I love great practical advise so I loved the Apron Senorita's post about socks.
She points out that boy's socks are cheaper than women's socks. I laughed at this post because I am always mixing up my 11 year old son's socks with mine when I do laundry. The only difference between our socks is the price. I think I will get my socks in the boy's department next time thanks to Yoli from Apron Senorita.
Reusable Swiffer Duster Cloths by Sew Much Ado.
This is a really great tutorial.
My kids would love these Food Face plates by At Second Street: a creative blog.
Quarry Orchard posted a great idea about Vacation Rocks.
I can't wait to try the Homemade Laundry Detergent by Big Doll's Boomtown.
I was so excited that Melody posted this recipe because it can be used in front loading washing machines. I also love that she uses vinegar as a fabric softener (Anyone who knows me, knows I love using vinegar for everything.). You really have to read her entire post, because she has such a great sense of humor.
