I have a great trick to save money while getting your clothes clean: You use 1/2 of what the detergent says to use. I know a lot of people do this but it really does work and it gets your clothes just as clean!

Purex has made a product that is laundry detergent, fabric softener and dryer sheet all in one. Drop one in the washer and the detergent is released, put it in the dryer and the clothes come out soft and static-free. No more remembering to add fabric softener and the cost is comparable to buying detergent, fabric softener and dryer sheets. Less carbon footprint since you can buy refills as well. Love them!
They come in various fragrances as well. I don't know if they make a fragrance-free type or not.
Using the manufacturers recommended amount of shampoo, detergent or any other item in your home could save you money. How often do you fill the Laundry detergent cap to the wrong level? Do you use a quarter size amount of shampoo and conditioner? Are you washing excess toothpaste down the drain every morning? Face wash, lotions, cleaners all add up at the register. Read the labels, start measuring more carefully and save!
