The Savings Experiment: Homemade Fabric Softener

Greta over at Friend, Family Savings just posted on how to use VINEGAR as an inexpensive fabric softener! I would have never thought to use vinegar for fabric. I can not believe how much money can be saved by making the switch!

Price Chopper 5/16- 5/21

Many Thanks to Alecia for this weeks Price Chopper Match Ups!
You know that I LOVE B1G1 Deals - remember, most Price Choppers will allow you to combine "when you buy two" coupons on B1G1 offers!! Rumor also has it that there will be "$3 Double Coupons" coupons in the ad from the Sunday Paper tomorrow, but we'll just have to wait to confirm. If you printed the ones available on Facebook the other day, be sure to USE THEM - they expire 5/16!! Please keep in mind that prices, coupons, and offers may vary by region and even store to store. If your store doubles coupons, your savings may be higher.

A New Janet Evanovich Book!

I love to read! A few years ago my sister introduced me to Janet Evanovich's book One for the Money (Stephanie Plum, #1)! I was hooked. This is a hilarious series that follows Stephanie, a former button factory employee who becomes a bounty hunter. She has some very handsome characters in her life and a best friend named Lula. I can say, I read the first five books in one week while visiting my parents on Spring Break. Now, both my sisters, my mom and her friends are all hooked on this series. The new book Sizzling Sixteen is out on June 22nd.
I can't wait to get my hands on it! Of course I will write a review as soon as I read it (around June 23rd)!
