I don’t like to talk about money. It seems crass or something. I guess it’s just how I was raised. But, it’s no secret that Boy Wonder and I have very little money so we are always looking for ways to save money. Internet research has led us to many wonderful ways to make some of our products at home from scratch rather than buying them.

I am honestly most excited to try the dish washing liquid, the deodorant, and the toothpaste. I am especially excited to get rid of some of the harsh chemicals the Boy Wonder and I have become so dependent upon.
