I am a penny pincher, in fact my friends use to say that I could pinch a penny so hard that boogers would come out of Lincoln’s nose. I didn’t think it was funny at the time. I try to save money on practically everything. I am the queen of store brands! I dislike buying throw away items such as Laundry soap. I’ve tried making my own but my DH didn’t care for the smell. That’s another story though. Normally I would purchase the cheapest laundry detergent which was usually Arm & Hammer or Purex. Our laundry room is in the basement and I frequently forget a load in the washer. I’m terrible at keeping up with laundry and sometimes I leave a load in the washer for a day or two. What a nasty smell! So, I would have to wash that load again,which means more water, more detergent. I was “blowing” money down the drain.
Last month at Walmart I purchased a small package of Tide Pods. They were more expensive than I prefer but I wanted to try them. The other day I left a load in the washer for 2 days and they still smelled freshly washed!
Tide pods: located in the laundry detergent isle. This product comes in a clear plastic bin with a bright orange lid. Each pod is a small clear pouch that contains a detergent, brightened, stain remover. According to the directions you turn on the washer, drop in a pod, fill tub with water, add clothes, shut lid. I don’t have time or all that waiting. I turn on washer, drop in pod and then add my laundry. I have yet to find this item on sale. However, I have found many coupon websites offering coupons and samples. Google Tide pods to find coupons. The average price is about $15 for a big package.
