Today we woke up knowing we needed a trip to Wal-Mart. Dustin came out and said we were out of laundry detergent. We needed formula, a new sound machine/CD player to keep the baby asleep, we needed stuff for lunch and the list kept piling up and all I could see was money going straight to Sam Walton. So I had seen on pinterest that people experimented with making their own laundry detergent and we thought we'd give it a try. There were several recipes and we decided to make the powder kind strictly for storage reasons....the liquid just makes SO much.
Here are the links if you are interested:

Let me know if you give it a try. I'm curious to see how well it works for everyone, but we are really excited to do laundry today, and if you know me, that's a big deal!!
