Looking to save money. Starting with your cleaning cabinet. Now open it up, how many items in there have you used a few times hated and never used again? How much did they cost $4? $8? Even products you love still cost an arm and a leg! Learn to make your own at home from simple items that clean just as well OR BETTER! Here are my 10 favorite recipes!
Stain Remover – I had a hard time giving up my stain remover, it had gotten EVERYTHING out! But when I started making my own with this recipe it was the easiest thing I've ever done!
Oven Cleaner – This stuff won't send you running for the windows like many oven cleaners I have used. Plus it works great!
Toilet Bowl Cleaner – We go through a LOT of toilet bowl cleaner with a boy and one potty training. It was a huge help on our budget to start making our own!

What cleaning items do you make?
I am a mom to 5 kids, homeschool mom, blogger, social media junkie, Frugalista, Book Worm, and Closet Want-to-be Chef. We are a Roadschool family (homeschooling on the road while traveling fulltime).
I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
