Since we're STILL waiting on DCFS for our final home study approval and there's nothing new to report, here are a few things I thought I could share in the meantime:
Has anyone else found this new, extra big detergent bottle to be really messy? I tried storing it on it's bottom....detergent leaked down the side into a nice puddle on the top of my dryer....I tried leaving it on its side, and now I have detergent smeared everywhere...on the jug, on the dryer, etc. I'm an educated woman, and no stranger to basic home-making....so why is this so difficult??
If you haven't yet, check out Owlhaven's Frugal Cooking Carnival. You can see some of her menu ideas and click on Mr. Linky to see links to other bloggers who took the challenge. It's gonna require some work and organization on my part, but I'm exciting about cutting our grocery budget by going back to cooking healthier, cheaper meals instead of so much of the processed, packaged stuff.
This week I also found a new website called Money Saving Mom. I'm not great at keeping coupons organized and actually remembering them when I shop, but if it's an amazing deal, I'm there!! So she gives a heads up about amazing deals, coupons, offers.....and this morning, I bought a box of Honey Bunches of Oats with Chocolate clusters for -.02
Yes. Free. She linked to a $2 coupon, and the price at Super Wal-Mart was $1.98. Woo hoo!!
