link – DIY a Year of Laundry Soap bonus DIY Fabric Softener
It’s that time of year again, when many of us get income tax refunds. Listening to a show on NPR a week or so ago, they were talking about how most of the working poor who get refunds, use them on things to improve their quality of life. New furniture, new appliances, new cars. I won’t lie, I’ve used it for all of those things over the years LOL. But the past few years the refund has gone towards improving our quality of life in other ways. Buying food stores so the expensive, hard to find items are around the house for months, and stocking up on stuff like toothpaste, shampoo, toilet paper etc. I can’t be the only one who hates to reach for another roll of tp and realize there aren’t anymore. Plus I loathe stores. Internet shopping is so much better in my book. So all of that to say that I spend money on items that we need, and items that it’d be SO convenient for me to not have to run to the store weekly to replace. Then I saw this link for a YEARS worth of laundry soap. Oh yes please, I’m mixing this puppy up this weekend!
And for your soft clothes enjoyment, especially when hanging out on a line, try the homemade fabric softener recipe!
If you are getting a refund back, what are you doing with it. Is it like NPR says, you are spending the money not on luxury items and throw away items like eating out and movie theaters, but on life improvement?
