Bloom’s store-brand bread is up to $1.89 per loaf from $1.69 per loaf. I spent several minutes at the meat counter figuring out how to get the biggest bang for my buck from the orange-tagged packages. Even tortilla chips are more expensive.
I’m a lot more careful about using up leftovers.

Today, I turned three linear feet of knitting books, cookbooks, and miscellaneous adult fiction (I never did get around to reading _House of Leaves_) into a store credit and two linear feet of children’s fiction.
I consider that a job well done.
||Fels-Naptha soap, grated fine
||washing soda, not baking soda
||2 gallon bucket with a lid
- Mix Fels-Naptha soap in a saucepan with 6 C of water. Heat on low until dissolved. Stir in washing soda and borax. Continue to stir until the mixture thickens, and then remove from heat.
- Add one quart of hot water to the bucket. Pour in soap mixture, and mix until completely combined. It should be a light yellow color. Fill the rest of the bucket with hot water, and mix well.
- Set aside for 24 hours, or until mixture thickens. Use 1/4–1/2 C of mixture per load of laundry, depending on size and soiling of load.
