Thrifty is GOOD!!

I love saving money...I mean i LOVE saving money!! There is nothing more thrilling than finding that thing you just have to have on sale!
So its no surprise that when i do everyday tasks, i'm also thinking of ways to save money. So much of the money in our house goes to food and cleaning supplies..ugghhh. I'm sure its the same at yours. 
Well Pinterest to the rescue!!!
I love pinterest....
I mean i LOVE pinterest!!
How did we live without it? 
You can find anything your heart desires...such as homemade cleaning supplies and how to cook better meals cheaper! 
Two things that make my heart soar..LOL!
Today we will stick to the cleaning...not my favorite thing, but something i do everyday.
In my house...we go through paper towels...mostly my dear hubby, but we won't go into that.
And i mean alot.
While cleaning out closets...i came across a bunch of old tshirts i had been saving for a "Pinterest" project which was meant to be done, but alas, never accomplished.
Well...wouldn't these make great little cleaning clothes. So i cut them into squares, put them in a basket, and placed them on my kitchen counter, with strict instructions to use these in place of paper towels!!   
And they actually listened...what a great idea. I also cut up an old towel to use for the bathroom cleaning jobs. They work great on the mirrors!
I also found this great recipe for shower cleaner:
1 part warmed vinegar
1 part Dawn dish soap
1 empty squirt bottle

You warm the vinegar in the microwave, add the dish soap and shake really well. I also added some warm water after shaking.
This worked so well in my shower! I didn't have to use any elbow grease at all..and i have glass shower doors, so you can see exactly how well its cutting the soap scum! 
One warning though...there are terrible fumes...not sure why..but they are bad enough to make me turn on the vent!

I found the recipe on Pinterest which led me here
THis site is AWESOME if you want to learn how to save money and streamline your life!

I'm off again to finish cleaning the rest of my house..even though i always feel so much better when the bathrooms are clean.
Thanks for stopping by!!

Until next time,
