    Packy & Nakabi, I use the same recipe that Packy uses. I LOVE it. I use the scoop that came in the oxyclean container since you need to use MUCH less than regular detergent. I can't wait to make my next batch, and try the dishwasher detergent. I als made some homemade febreeze this weekend. It's 3tbs of your fav. fabric softner, 2 tbs of baking soda and fill the rest of the bottle (an old febreeze bottle) with warm to hot water. It smells WONDERFUL and it's far less expensive than what you buy in the stores. My next mission is to make homemade cleaning wipes, and baby wipes! Pinterest is my new best friend next to wral of course!!!

    Call the N&O -- I got a renewal notice, called and was able to get a year for $54

    I got my renewal notice from the n&o. Looking to see if their are any discount codes that are cheaper than $84 a year.

    I went to kroger today and bought 30 items. It said on the receipt I had 30 participting items, but it only printed out 4 coupons. I went to the service desk and they printed me out 2 more with no problem. Went straight to HT and spent them and .32 cent cash. I loved, loved, loved that!

    genialynn - I went to Kroger this evening and did one transaction with 15 of the included items and it printed me three $5 off my next order coupons. So you do not need to do separate transactions.

    There are 2 codes available on the Swagbucks blog here:


    Each is worth 3 points for a total of 6. They are valid through 6 pm EST.

    ashchrismel - some folks here on the blog pre-bake the HT pizza dough and some don't. I am on Team Pre-Bake and always rollit out, season it with some olive oil, garlic powder an dItalian seasonings, poke some holes in it with a fork and then pre-bake at 425 for about 8 minutes. Then I top it with sauce, veggies, cheese and more seasonings and bake for another 8 to 10 minutes.

    OH! And you asked about cost/savings. I really don't have the answer to that because we've used SO much more detergent than normal and like I said, the SO uses way too much. That's kind of why I was asking on here if anyone else did it. Still undecided about it.

    I just bought the pizza dough ball & am wondering if I should bake it before I put toppings on it or after I top it. Not sure if the dough has be pre baked to make pizza.
