There are things in my life that I don't really like - mainly b/c there is no satisfaction in it what so ever!!! Laundry is right up there at the top of it, but lately I've taken on a new feeling about laundry I think it's expensive - I've never thought this before, b/c really it's not, but after the last two weeks at this little house, I think I'm going to take on the Dugger approach and start making my own detergent.....let me explain
The last two weeks have been filled with one thing or the other - literally, either someone in the house has had the stomach bug - or Stephen has tee-teed in his bed......minor regression there
As I looked at our pile of laundry the other day and realized that Alan had on jeans with holes in them for work - I knew we had a growing dirty laundry issue, but I've been doing multiple loads a day - so we had a "free" day (no tee, and so forth) and I began the wonderful Grace filled task
I was almost there, almost at the finish line (even though we know laundry is never finished) and poor little Stephen got sick at nap time..... on a pile of clean laundry..... that being said I think laundry is expensive, b/c we are one load away from running out of detergent and I really don't want to go to the store this week - if only I made my own! :)

I started making my own detergent a couple of years ago and I haven't looked back. It's super easy and once you get the initial supplies, you can keep making batches for a while without having to restock. Definitely worth it. Let me know if you want more details.

Awesome, thanks! Let me know, I am interested especially that our family is growing - more little things to wash :)
