Two weeks ago, I shared with you that I am participating in the Arm and Hammer Switch and Save Challenge. This month, I’ve been working specifically with baking soda. I’ve shared a couple of the different ways I use baking soda around our home, but one important benefit we haven’t discussed yet, is the way that Arm and Hammer Baking Soda can stretch your budget, saving money for other things your family needs or helping to grow your savings account.
Because we live in a “quick-fix”, convenience oriented society, we have a plethora of product options when it comes to tasks we need to complete around our homes. There is a specialized cleanser, spray, or gel for just about any job you can name. Many of those products are toxic for our children, pets and environment; and are available only if you are willing to pay a premium cost. Often, we have been using a product for so many years, it never occurs to us that there may be a better, or at least equal, cleaning solution, at a more affordable price. For many years, Arm and Hammer Baking Soda has been an inexpensive alternative to chemical cleaning products, but convenience and habit compel us to pick up the same cleansers week after week, month after month without giving it a second thought.
This week, I challenged myself, and now, I want to challenge you, to think about the products you use and the money you spend on them. How much could you save, doing your regular chores just as effectively, substituting Arm and Hammer Baking Soda for your usual cleaning products? Remember when we discussed, here, that saving only $19.24 per week nets you $1000 cash in your savings account at the end of one year!??!! How much of that $19.24 can you save, by switching from your usual cleaning products to non-toxic, environmentally friendly Arm and Hammer baking soda for some of your routine household tasks?
At less than $1 per box, Arm and Hammer Baking Soda has always been an exceptional value whether I’m baking or doing household chores. The familiar orange box is always in my cupboard, but I only recently discovered that it can be purchased in bags as large as 13.5 lbs. We all know that buying in bulk is a great way to cut costs on products we use most often. Plus, money-saving Arm and Hammer coupons are available at their website, so all you have to do is print them and save money at your local store!
