At my house pennies don't just get pinched. I am pretty sure we squeeze them until the squeal. ~giggle~ Three kids can do a number on a budget. Especially when those kids are growing, which mine seem to want to do every-time I blink. A huge money saver for us is making our own homemade cleaners.
Not only are they a fraction of the cost compared to the store bought versions, but they are much less toxic. I don't have to worry if my kids want to help me clean. Ha...who am I kidding. If I make them clean, I don't have to stress about them accidentally getting it on their skin. If it spills, or they use to much I am not going to flip out on them. For pennies you can make your own Homemade Window Cleaner.
