FRUGAL FUN: IVORY SOAP CLOUDS

“Stick a bar of soap in the microwave? What’s the big deal about that?” They said nonchalantly.

Well, I had them all crowd around the microwave, despite their lackluster attitudes.

Within a minute, everyone had forgotten all about their lack of enthusiasm as their eyes were popping out with what the soap had turned into in the microwave.

They started begging me if they could please play with it — and they had so much fun breaking off pieces and being fascinated with the transformation of a simple bar of soap...
We made Ivory Soap Clouds for our Frugal Family Fun project. The kids were less than enthused when I first told them about it.

HOW TO MAKE DAVE RAMSEY SOUP
"I have always been frugal, used coupons, and shopped with cash only, but lately I have been inspired to save more. Our family is in the midst of saving for an adoption, and we have a dream of paying off our home in three years, so every little penny counts as one step closer to our BHAG.
As with everyone else, our food budget is where we are able to save the most money; therefore, I plan menus without fail, cook from scratch, and shop sales fliers. We eat leftovers regularly for dinner and lunch; however, we still end up with a few odds and ends being thrown away after meals..."

10 FRUGAL TIPS FOR DECORATING YOUR HOME
"Decorating is something I’ve loved for as long as I can remember. As a child, I regularly rearranged my room and the living room (whenever my mom would allow me to!).
I decided to study Interior Design because it was a “trade” I could practice as a stay-at-home mom. After I graduated with a B.A. in Interior Design, I worked for three years in the high-end furniture industry. My clientele was willing to pay big bucks for furniture, accessories and for my time, but I was not.
Over the years, I’ve discovered a number of tricks for decorating a home beautifully and frugally..."
