Birthday Cookie

Bubby just celebrated a birthday.  His birthday cake request was for a giant chocolate chip cookie.

Normally I would make chocolate chip cookies from scratch, but I happened to have coupons for the cookie mix and icing so I decided to make it the easy way.  I was able to make his birthday cookie for around $2.00!

I just followed the cookie directions on the bag, used an aluminum pizza pan and baked for 15 minutes.

Bubby loved his Birthday Cookie!




So I haven’t been posting much about “couponing” lately.  It takes tons of time and tons of shopping!! Hopefully once school starts back I will be able to spend more time on it, I definitely need to be saving money right now!  In the meantime check out Lea’s Coupon Blog here!

Home Made Liquid Hand Soap

What if you don’t have any coupons and your out of liquid hand soap? How about making your own for pennies! It works just as well, and is fun for kids to help make!

1 bar Castile soap  (make sure it says “Castile” )

8 cups of water

3 T glycerin (found in drug store)

Plastic Pitcher

Wooden Spoon (don’t use for food cooking after using for making soap)

Fragrance or essential oils of your choice, as much as desired

Begin by grating your bar of castile soap. You can do this by hand with a cheese grater or if you have a food processor that will grate you can use this and it will go much quicker.

Put your grated soap into a sauce pan and cover with water. Simmer until the soap has melted.

Remove from heat & Add glycerin let cool a few minutes and scent oils ( Micahels has scented soap oils or you can use essential oils found at area health food stores.) Start wit only a few dropper fulls a little goes a long way.

Pour into plastic pither and cover

Let this mixture sit overnight (or all day). Stir the soap then pour into desired containers.

** Tea tree essential oil is considered to have good antibacterial properties
