Huggies Enjoy the Ride Codes

I have been a bit of a slacker with my Huggies Enjoy the Ride codes! Here are some new ones for you to enter:

The Savings Experiment: Homemade Laundry Detergent

Homemade Laundry Soap

As I have stated many times before, I HATE paying full price for anything. Laundry Detergent is an item that I use a lot of and rarely find a sale/coupons that I can use to get it close to free. Unless you count my "Free Travel Size Tides." I read a GREAT post by Greta over at Friend Family Saving on making your own Laundry Detergent so I decided to give it a try!

Here is the Recipe:

1 bar lightly scented soap (Ivory, Fels Naptha, Zote & Pure&Natural are all commonly used)
1/2 cup washing soda (NOT baking soda)
1/2 cup borax

You have to grate the soap, it took me no time at all! You can also use a food processor which might help it to make it more fine. I don't have a food processor the grater method worked well!

Combine all ingredients and store in an air tight container!

All I did was put them in, snap the lid on and shook!

It was a GREAT workout for my arms and I was able to combine all of the quickly and easily.

Now you use one Tablespoon per load!

Cost Analysis:

Arm & Hammer Washing Soda: $2.99 ($.22 per batch)
20 Mule Team Natural Laundry Booster, Borax: $4.29 ($.23 per batch)
Ivory Bar Soap, Simply Ivory: $.50

Total Cost per 32 load Batch: $.95
Total Cost per 1TBSP load: $.03

Compare that to:
Tide 2x Concentrated, Original 64 loads $12.99 ($.20/load)

Be sure to check out Greta's AWESOME Blog

It had become a new favorite!

Storyline Online

I have to share a great FREE resource that I use in my classroom! It is called Storyline Online and it is WONDERFUL.

It is brought to us by the Screen Actors Guild Foundation and it is an online video streaming of SAG actors reading popular children's stories.

Each book read includes activities and lesson plans to go along with it.

As my school year is winding down, it is a great way to share a story.

I don't watch a lot of TV so I had a hard time figuring out who some of the actors are but they make each story exciting for young readers. Be sure to check out Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge, it is a favorite among the first graders in Room 174

Here are some of the books available:

Harry the Dirty Dog

To Be A Drum

Guji Guji

Sebastian's Roller Skates

Spohie's Masterpiece


Wilfrid Gordon McDonald Partridge

No Mirrors in My Nana's House (another favorite)

The Night I Followed the Dog

Thank You, Mr. Falker

My Rotten Redheaded Older Brother

Knots on a Counting Rope

Brave Irene

A Bad Case of the Stripes

Private I. Guana

Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch

The Polar Express

Me and My Cat

Dad, Are you the Tooth Fairy

When Pigasso Met Mootisse

White Socks Only

Romeow & Drooliet

Enemy Pie

RockStar Recipes

One thing that I love more than shopping for great deals is Cooking!
More specifically baking.
Even when I was young, I loved baking up new desserts and dinners for my family.

Now that I am all grown up and working full time as a first grade teacher I have moved more towards simple but delicious meals that I can make quickly.
Each Monday I will be posting a new "RockStar Recipe" for anyone who is interested in something simple, quick and delicious.
I also invite my readers to send me a recipe that you would like me to try and post.

Jiffy's Sweet Corn Cake
2 Boxes Jiffy Corn Bread Mix
1 Can corn kernels, drained or one small package of frozen corn (still frozen)
1 Can creamed corn
4 Eggs
1 Stick of butter, melted
mix all the ingredients together and bake in a 9x13 greased pan for 1 hour at 350 degrees.

This is a great side with any Mexican dish. David particularly enjoys it with Taco Ring (stay tuned for that recipe)

The Savings Experiment: Homemade Grout Cleaner

Homemade Grout Cleaner

I have something to admit-- My husband and I moved into our house about one year ago. I thought that the grout in our kitchen was gray... Little did I know it was just FILTHY! I spent about one week completely cleaning the entire kitchen, hallway and bathroom floor. I originally used Tilex and a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. It was SO expensive. I also was concerned about Tinkerbell who seems to lick the floor even when we try to train her not to. So I turned to the homemade method.

The Recipe:

1/2 Cup Vinegar
1 Cup Baking Soda

Mix it together to form a paste
Place the paste on the grout and wait about five minutes.

Use a stiff bristle brush. and scrub.

The Results

It cleans the grout perfectly! Although it takes a little elbow grease to get your floor to sparkle it worked very well and the best part is it is NON TOXIC.

The Cost Analysis

Vinegar 1 Gallon $3.49 $o.22 per cup
Baking Soda $1.49 $0.60 per cup

Tilex 32 oz $4.49 Walmart $1.12 per cup

The numbers speak for themselves!

It is also a much safer method for cleaning if you have children or pets at home.
