This Week's Frugal Tasks Saturday 4th August 2018

Making our own,  diluting,  reusing and recycling has become a way of life for us.  It's a great life and gives us a feeling of doing the very best we can with what we have.  We are not tree huggers by any stretch of the imagination but God gave us a beautiful planet and we'd like it to stay that way.

Here's our frugal list for the week -

*  Made up two bottles of diluted Dynamo laundry liquid.  The ration is 1 part liquid to 5 or 6 parts water.

*  Made up a triple batch of laundry powder.

*  Dried the washing on the line and on clothes horses.

*  Cut up an old jersey knit top to use as cleaning cloths and rags.

*  Cut up and used the food processor to blitz 8 bars of laundry soap to make laundry powder.  I always like to have a small bucket of the soap blitzed up ready to make the laundry powder when it's getting low.

*  Donated 31 items to Savers and received two discount stamps.

*  Refilled the hair conditioner bottle and added a little water to the bottom to get the last bit out.  I also had the bottle upside down for an hour of two to get every last drop out.

*  Made up two big bottles of foaming hand wash solution using diluted shower gel.  The ration is 1 part gel to 4 parts water.

*  Saved the shower warm up water for the washing machine.

*  Gratefully received a box of lemons,  oranges and mandarins from a friend.

*  Jessica mended a skirt,  coat and a top.

*  Gratefully received a Savers discount card ( with stamps on it ) from a friend who had too many cards.
