Financially Free Friday

I miss having Frugal Friday!!! lol It is so fun to read how everyone saves money through shopping, or making homemade cleaning supplies, or starting home businesses!

I thought perhaps I would give anyone an opportunity to link up their blog here this week..and leave your Frugal tip! Just make sure to link back to my blog!

Suppose I should call it something else, lest I be in contempt of copyright. lol So we shall call it Financially Free Friday! lol (Had to come up with something!)

My Frugal Tip:

I discovered this great idea from Adventures of Pip and Squeak from Works for me Wednesday! I had to write a post because it actually worked lol
How to make homemade baby wipes!

You need 1 Bounty Paper Towel Roll cut in half (the best paper towels are the half sheet size)
2 cups of water
2 TBLS each of Baby Lotion, Baby Soap, or Baby oil. (Pick 2 of the 3)
1 airtight container (I used a tall lock n' lock container.  It has a great seal)

Boil 2 cups of water, then add 2TBLS of 2 of the 3 choices above. Stir until dissolved. Put your Half roll of Paper Towel into the container. Then pour the liquid over the paper towels in the container. Put the lid on, and let it sit for 5 minutes. Then turn it upside down for 5 more minutes. Take the lid off and pull out the brown center piece from the paper towels and pull the middle paper towel out. It works great.Wah la its done!!!!

Evidently it is .015 cents to make homemade opposed to store bought for .035 cents per wipe.

I love these kind of tips. Again this was not my tip. I am just displaying my finished product that I am SO proud of lol.

Please feel free to link your "frugal" tip below with Mr. Linky!!!

A little about me...

It is that time again!!!! I am thinking of attempting to lose weight for the 100 millionth time. haha. This time I know it will work :)

In November of 2007, I gave birth to my second child, a C-Section. Not only did that put me back physically, but I also developed high blood pressure. I am only 29. Talk about discouraging.

I started gaining weight in highschool. Seems to have followed me everywhere. My ultimate goal is to lose 120 lbs but I'll settle for 10 right now. haha.

There is absolutely no reason why I cannot succeed in this weight loss endeavor. I have exercise equipment. I guess that means I have to use it. Also, I am going to attempt the Carbohydrates Addict Diet. I have had some success with this in the past.

So I am thinking, with putting my progress out for the world to see.. it will force me to make the right choices. Let's hope!! Feel free to comment on anything or tell your story. It's always encouraging to hear about others successes. Join me on this weight loss journey...
