Saving you money: Homemade laundry detergent

BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- There are some items you'd rather not live without, like laundry detergent.

To avoid paying so much for a product many people go through like water, a Georgia mom of 2 is sharing her homemade recipe.

"I thought it would be a pain to put together," Ashlei Boatright explains, "so I just did it. I made my own laundry detergent and it was easy. Didn't take long at all!"

For just 7-dollars, Ashlei stirred up 5 gallons of laundry detergent that's lasted her nearly a year.

Watch her story on GMJ this morning (Thursday 11/01/12) at 6:25 a.m. to see how Ashlei manages to find the time to make her home-made laundry with 4-year-old Jonah and 2-year-old Mason running around.

Child Wellness Tips: Stay Active This Holiday Season!

Child Wellness Tips: Stay Active This Holiday Season!

 

From author, Stephanie Walsh, M.D., Medical Director, Child Wellness, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta

The holiday season has arrived! It’s a time for parties, presents and holiday cheer. However, it can also be a season of little activity and over-indulging. As the weather cools down, children are often tempted to stay inside in front of the T.V. or a video game rather than play outside. Holiday specials also can draw your family to the T.V. screen this time of year. Eating healthily can present additional challenges when faced with party buffets, holiday sweets and large family meals.
