Thursday's Thrifty Tip #1
When I was a homemaker with lots of family at home, I was always looking for ways to stretch my budget to include items that I needed but wanted to spend less money on. With your help, we can focus on cleaning supplies, foods, trips to entertainment, whatever you want to share.
Today I want to talk about Homemade Starch.
You can purchase clothing starch at the grocery/pharmacy store for pennies of what you will spend for spray starch. It comes in a jug which you dilute for your needs. I believe the brand here is 'Sta Flo'. By using a spray bottle and adding the right dilution of starch and water, you have starch for all of your ironing needs. A 64 ounce bottle/jug of starch costs around $2.97 here in California. An aerosol can costs $1.98. A jug will make up to 9 aerosol cans, depending on how much you dilute it. Just give it a shake before you want to use it and give your garment a spray.
Now, give us your ideas on ways we can save money.
Your ideas can be centered on, but not necessarily exclusive of:
ENTERTAINMENT ON A BUDGET
Whatever your little heart desires. Give it up and bless someone else with your knowledge.
