Good article. I agree… mostly. I love the stand she took, but I take a different approach. Go give her a read.
I have to actually blog about this. I’m guilty but not so guilty here.
I admit to doing something for almost every holiday (sorry, no Pi day here), BUT all of my ideas are cheap and simple.
Sometimes just printing out games and puzzles and coloring pages is as far as I’ll go.
Or the silly Leprechaun… that was easy. We had everything here already (oh yes, those Gold Coins they didn’t eat at Christmas were re-gifted for St Patrick’s Day).
But I do it because I want my children to stay children and believe in good, pure things for as long as possible. Hell, my 14 year old just found out the other night that I was the Leprechaun.
We still use dollar store Valentine’s, with cheap lollipops, reuse our Easter baskets every year, use PAAS dye for simple dip and dye eggs… no reason to go overboard!
Kids will love the simple things, trust me!

Since I already have the supplies, this was an easy one to start off with.
Container with sealed lid
Liquid Fabric Softener
Open clean container’s lid.
Pour in 1 part liquid fabric softener into container.
Pour in 2 parts water (you can use distilled, bottled, previously boiled or plain old tap) into container.
Cut new sponge into 4 equal strips.
Put all 4 strips into container.
Give the container a little shake.
Viola! It’s done.
When it’s time to put your clothes in the dryer, just wring out a sponge section (or 2) and throw it in the dryer with the clothes. When you take your clothes out of the dryer, drop the sponge back into the container.
Repeat over and over and over again.
I have not bought fabric softener sheets in about 6 months now and I’ve only had to make the mixture up one additional time.
