blogging today

So I decided to start blogging on different chalenges in my daily life, to list a few,
cleaning my house,
homemaking things to save money,
making my family healthier (lol)
well that has like a year of breakdown on it so we will see.
Today someone mentioned a very simple way to make laundry soap, I thought, here I was going to the store and looking at laudry soap and the only one I wanted to be able to afford, I have bought in the past and it was watery. And now someone said all that they do is grate up bar soap, soak it in water overnight and mix it. They use it for all their laundry! I thought that sounded amazing, especially if it works, then I looked up homemade laudry soap and found 10 different recipes on someone elses blog,
http://tipnut.com/10-homemade-laundry-soap-detergent-recipes/ its kinda cool, my goal is to try several of these recipes and blog on what I think, it should be fun and just another thing I need to get myself to over come laziness and random busyness and get it done =)
So lastly I really want imput!!! I am going to ask for imput on this and my next topic which is a challenge for me, today it is keeping my bathrooms clean, so if you have any ideas for me please give them to me, I will try some things, hopefully something someone suggests and then blog on how it worked for me, and how the status of my bathrooms are.
Evenually I plan on being able to take pictures so I can share just how challenging my life is, (my house is always a wreck)!!!!


  1. I buy a thing at Costco, the Eco brand. It is $14 and it does almost 250 loads....

  2. I've been making my own laundry soap for almost a year and love it! mine is phels neptha, washing soda and borax. And as for the bathroom... I put Lysol wipes by the toilet and made the boys (big and little) wipe the toilet every time they used it. And told them not just where they missed to wipe the whole thing. And if they aren't busy get a clean one and the counter too!

  3. PS I'm sure you could make your own version of wipes. Like paper towels in a wet wipe box with pine sole solution exc..

  4. Kellee I love that idea of making the kids wipe down the toilet when they miss!!

  5. To keep your bathroom organized, get a shoe organizer and put odds and ends used frequently in there it will be in reach and keep things off the counter.
