How to cut the cost of doing laundry

Laundry is the one chore at my house that never really ever seems to get done. However, I have found several ways to cut down the cost of doing laundry. While its not a huge savings, little by little it does add up.

1. Cut dryer sheets in half. If using dryer sheets, I take them out of the box and cut them in half instantly giving me 2X the amount. Half of a sheet works just as fine as a whole sheet.

2. Use less fabric softener. Like dryer sheets, you really can use half and it works just fine. Many times I would just fill the softener cap and dump it in the machine. Now I specifically find the fill line marked inside the cap and use half of it.

3. Use less detergent. Don't overdo the detergent. Again, I use half to 3/4 of what the manufacturer recommends and the clothes come out just as clean. If you get alot of lint on your clothes, you are using too much detergent.

4. Make your own detergent. This can be very cost effective if you do alot of laundry. There are several online recipes that will produce a 5 gallon bucket of detergent for cheap-under $7 for 300+ loads. Personally, I have never tried it, but from what I have read the detergent works great. You can find an online tutorial with recipe, pics and cost breakdown here.

5. Wash in cold. Cold water cleans just as well as hot but uses alot less energy.

6. Load the machine to capacity. Doing several small loads uses more energy that one large load.

7. Line dry your clothes. Its free, it works, and it doesn't take much time. We started this a few years ago and at first I thought it was going to be so much work. Its not. 75% of our laundry is dried this way, year round, and I prefer to line dry it then put it in the dryer. Personally, I think our clothing doesn't fade or shrink and retains its "newness" longer. My husband put two clothes lines in the basement and also a drying rack. It takes about a day for it to dry.

How do you reduce the cost of doing laundry?

A tax only shopping trip

This past weekend, I decided to hit the mall and a few stores and get all my free items. Over the past few weeks I've been saving all the gift cards, percentage off coupons and loyalty coupons. I get in and get out so I don't spend $.

I only paid TAX for all of this. Saved $42.

From Target: 6 packages of Rayovac batteries and Little Debbie cupcakes, I had coupons for these making them free. I actually had 15 or so Rayovac coupons and wanted to run in and get the rest of the free batteries. I had several more coupons for free items but they were out: Beechnut Baby food-jars and rice.
From Kohls: $10 gift card received in the mail. $10 off $10. Bought a $20 (half off) Carters outfit for my son. Paid tax only.
Hallmark: Wooden stacker toy for my son's Christmas stocking. Used the $5 off $5 coupon. Tax only
VS: Free panty, received certificate in the mail.

Paid with spare change and cleaned out my purse in the meantime.

It pays to sign up at your favorite stores. Once you are on their mailing list, typically you will receive discounts or gift cards in the mail. Kohls and JCPenney send these out often. Bath and Body Works, Victoria's Secret, etc have lots of promotions to get you in the store as well.

Colin at made a great video this week concerning her frugal mall trip. Watch her below and see what she all found.

Facebook is definitely starting to become the place to go to get fantastic freebies and offers. Companies are really promoting their products and offering freebies when you "become a fan."

Personally, I have found these freebies always come and arrive very quickly. So far, we've received coupons for full size bottles of Herbal Essences shampoo or conditioner, boxes of Little Debbie snacks(yum), hand sanitizer spray, a dog bowl, a huge tin of popcorn from the Popcorn Factory (double yum) and possibly free jeans from Lee! If you have never signed up for facebook, I would highly encourage it just for the promotions alone.

As I see promotions, I will gladly post them on this blog.

If you are a Walgreens fan, check out the FB Walgreens page tomorrow (Monday Dec 7) for a free gift (I'm thinking more free photos).

Free Sample of Nature Valley Granola Bar

FREE sample of Nature Valley Trail Mix granola bar AND Nut Clusters! PLUS you will also receive coupons to print!
