One place I like to save a few pennies is in the laundry room with one simple little trick.

I learned a while ago that you can easily divide your fabric softener amount in half and still obtain the same soft and fluffy (and static-free) results.  We use dryer sheets and it is simple, easy and very cost effective to cut a stack of them in half for future use.  I have never once felt that our clothes have been less then perfect and I love the fact that I can save pennies with each load of laundry I do.  With a family of 6 with young children, you can be sure I do a lot of laundry, which means I save a lot of pennies!
