Being Ms. Suzie Homemaker

Last night I decided to make more homemade laundry soap since I was at the bottom of my container.  I love making my soap and it doesn't take very long. 

I used one bar of Zote  used cheese grater on it.
Then I put in 3 cups of Borax
Then 3 cup of Arm and Hammer washing soap
I also added one cup of Oxi clean to it.

Mixed it all together and BAM great detergent for the laundry!!

Using Coupons

I haven't clipped coupons on a regular basis in many years.  So I have been trying to use coupons lately.  At first I looked at it like a job, spent hours looking at ads and cutting out the coupons.  With that being said I only did it a couple of times in May and thought uugh I really don't enjoy doing this very much!

Saturday I had gone over to Lawton and had a few coupons with me and went into Walgreens.  I decided to treat couponing as a game to win money.  You know I was thinking can I save money and enjoy clipping coupons at the same time? The answer is yes!! 

Most of ya know I am NOT up to date on technology.. I actually figured out how to upload online coupons to my Walgreen card.  AMAZING!!  Had no ideal it was so super easy to do.  Although next time I will make sure to write down the coupon I uploaded to the card...lol 
That would have helped me a lot if I had done that simple task.  Once in the store I had no ideal what coupons I had available.

I ended up buying $47.42 worth of stuff for only $30.74.  My goal is to get better each time I shop with coupons.  I actually had a savings of 37%..not to bad at all!!

Happy 4th of July!!

Can you believe it's already July?  Today is the 4th of July!  Love celebrating our independence day. I had asked Mr. C.  if we could cookout today and of course he was all for it.  I went and bought enough stuff for a small army.  We had hot links, smoked sausage, hamburgers, steak and pork chops. I made baked beans, homemade potato salad and pea salad.  It was super delish!

Hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July!!
