Thrifty Tips for February 23



A while back I mentioned how I was learning to make more things myself rather than buying them.  I gave a recipe for making your own laundry detergent and now I have another recipe to share.

Make your own liquid fabric softener.  

6 Cups of Hot Water
2 Cups of Suave Conditioner (pick the fragrance you like best)

Combine all ingredients and stir until thoroughly mixed.  Use like any fabric softener in rinse cycle or add to a Downy Ball.  You can also add it to a spray bottle and mist a wash cloth with it (light mist not overly damp) and toss the cloth into the dryer.


If you are the type of writer who buys blank cards because you prefer to put your own prose inside, you  just might be able to make a little extra money selling your verse.  Check out Blue Mountain Arts.  They are open to poetry written to be used with their cards.  If you know their work, you know what I am talking about.  If not, head to the store or look at their website and see the kind of work they use in their cards.  This could be a wonderful opportunity to make a little extra cash.  They pay very well.  Check out their submission page at the link below.

Okay...this is seriously the cutest shower gift I have ever seen.  Well, bridal shower or housewarming gift.  I imagine you may have seen diaper cakes where baby blankets and diapers are used to make adorable little cakes that you can give as a shower gift.  Follow this link to an absolutely beautiful Tea Towel Shower Cake and tutorial at Aly & Ash.
