Homemaking: Dishwashing Powder

Now, this is a frugal blog, mind you, lol. I ran into this online! I hate spending money on "Cascade" and even toilet paper. lol don't think there are any TP substitutes, but here's a great one for dishwashng powder, lol! Can't wait to try it out-- funnn!!! I've saved and printed this as well.

Use baking soda/vinegar to clean dishes. I have seen tips on using baking soda as a substitute for dish washing liquid or powder but they usually involved adding some other cleaning element as well, and I have seen the use of vinegar for many cleaning uses but I have not yet seen these two in combination.
I had dish powder left over still to use, but I had become frustrated with finding my dishes not clean and the rather expensive dish powder clumped in the receptacle.

Major fun at Old Navy Black Friday 2010!

Just came back from ON (got there around 12:05am) and had to park all the way in the back! lol. At least I didn't have to wait in line or outdoors! Got 2 pair of $5 sleep pants! I've been waiting on these for a while, they are my fave!! The most I've paid for one was about $10, so 50% discount is great! And they had my size!! I'm so grateful they had my size. I've been eying the pink and blue ones for a long time, even looked 'em up online a couple of times. I'm working from home and I'm lounging around a lot and I love it, bless God so now I have 3 pairs. Yaay :) :) Superiorly happy!!

Will have to give a review of these at too. I wanted some really festive ones, so I'd say mission accomplished! If you decide to go today, check the Black Friday ad beforehand (see post #49) and go in with a list.

Here are the ones I got:

My New Duraflame!

I am sooo in love! This is my new baby I ordered from QVC. She's not exactly here yet because I just purchased her on QVC today, but she'll be here soon!! Isn't she so pretty? She's a portable electric stove heater. I call her my "Baby Fireplace," lol. I have actually been eyeing her for two years now. Not this exact model, but a baby fireplace in general. For two years!! Now I finally have her.

This is my very first purchase from QVC. They made it so easy! Four easy payments of $28.75. Thank you Lord I love this little jewel! She comes with a remote control, and it is a metal frame. I really love the craftsmanship here. The fire engine red, the window-esque front, the cut of the legs, the cute hinges and the pretty fire-look with the embers and flames.
