I know I read what service you use for internet, but I can’t find it. I know it used Verizon but you don’t get it through verizon. So, what is the service? We have been living full time in a motor home for the past 11 years and love it. Thanks for all the info.

My home is very small. I am exploring getting a murphy or wall bed. Are they really worth the money? Anyone that uses one –info appreciated. Linda

I’m not sure how much they cost but I’ve seen some DIY murphy beds online if you are into making things!

I love your site. So many things to try, so little time. I’m the mother of 5 adopted children. The oldest two are out of the home, and we are raising our grandson who just turned 5. I love to cook/bake from scratch and have enjoyed learning things like make your own taco seasoning. At some point, I want to try the deodorant, chapstick, and other things. Thanks for all the good ideas.

I was wondering how you make a lot of home made things on a budget? I made some homemade laundry soap but it cost me $80 to start out. I feel as though it is a crazy amount of money to spend in order to save. How do you get around these initial costs?

Anything will have a higher initial cost, the key is to not start everything all at once and to try and stick with things that use many similar ingredients so you are buying less. Set aside a small amount each week or each month in your budget to build your stockpile :)

We haven’t bought detergent in almost a decade (4 kids) and I can’t imagine what start-up cost making your own entails? A cheese grater a hot burner and a blender paired with a few bucks worth of ingredients and you are off the ground!
