Uh Oh Here We Go Again

I was just notified this apt. complex goes up for sale again next week, which means walk-thrus by strangers. Ugh. So if ever I needed to unclutter it's now.  Unfortunately we are also having a heatwave.  Which means cleaning mostly at night. So much to do, so little time. We are looking for another place to live, but in the meantime, what do I do with all this stuff? Storage is out. We already have one storage unit that has cost us thousands of dollars over the years. $100 a month x 12 months is $1200. $1200 x 10 years is $12,000. The stuff in there isn't worth $12,000. I wish I had that money in my bank account.

DIY Laundry Detergent

Today on Pinterest I ran across a recipe for DIY Laundry Detergent. I must try this. We always save the cat litter buckets so I'm sure I could mix some of this up in one of those or in a giant bowl and then I could make laundry detergent once a year and save not just money, but I won't be buying all those plastic and cardboard containers that laundry soap comes in. If I can talk my boyfriend into doing it this way, I'll let you know how it goes.
