Busted the Budget
WOWZA! I busted the budget, but I fully expected it this month. To be fair I have included all the supplies I purchased to make my cleaning products. All the essential oils, spray bottles, containers, and everything else in between. The total cost for all those items ended up being $84.77. I know it will even out in the end so I am not too concerned about being over budget at the moment. Our laundry detergent is holding up extremely well and I haven't even put a dent in our supply! I have a feeling it will last for a long time. The dishwasher detergent is also working very well. I do at least one load per day and sometimes two without any issues yet. The other supplies are working well too. I really like the glass cleaner and the surface spray the most. They work really well, no harsh chemicals, and they are affordable! That's a great combination to me :) The best part is these cleaners seem to last and I still have borax, baking soda, lemishine, essential oils, salt, vinegar, and spray bottles. I am sure I have enough to last at least a year for everything except the detergent. In the end I am looking at spending right around $100 for the year on cleaning supplies including laundry detergent! That is AWESOME in my book!
