    Yes HB tabs are heaps cheaper. I get 30 for 5 bucks. In Finish and other brands you are looking at $15+. They wash fine, but like I said, we have a newish dishwasher that is a good brand so I'm unsure if the HB are good, or if the washer just washes really well if that makes sense.

    I suspect the HB powder is the same stuff just not in tablet form. DH usually packs the dishwasher and is lazy lol he demands the tablets but the powder is only about $3 I think? Normally I refuse to buy HB in cleaning and beauty products, this is the only one I buy.
    We buy HB tablets too. Only $5 for 30 I think. Our dishwasher is prob 5 years or older but the dishes are always clean. Couldn't recommend them any more

    Oh good, I haven't tried them as I didn't think they'd be very good. I tried the hb powder once and it was crap. Beats spending $18 on fairy or power balls. Ill try them for sure.

    I've just perfected my milk recipe so our milk now only costs us roughly 25c a litre. We still buy cows milk for DS and me but that lasts 2-3 days but saving $2.60 a litre on the oat milk helps big time considering DH can go through up to 1.5lt a day. I'll also be making bread when I dig the bread maker out of the garage. One of our biggest savings though is the no meat bit. I can feed the 3 of us at dinner for under $5 when I need to. It's certainly not for everyone though.

    I agree with the washable cloths instead of the paper towel. That will save you quite a bit. Buying in bulk where you can will save you too. A yogurt maker is reasonable cheap and you can get recipes off the net that taste so much better than any store bought yogurt and is better for you. Those little kids tubs are fairly high in sugar, as are a lot of the ski and yoplet ones.

    If you do a search on here for sausage and bacon casserole I've posted it one day. It's something we had a fair bit growing up because it was cheap but it's so yum. I've even adapted it to be vegetarian.

    Shop around for better deals on your phone etc.
    Keep your fuel tank full
    Make your portions of meat slightly smaller so it lasts longer
    If your hubby will only use viva parer towels, leave them for him to use and you use microfibre wipes?
    Stop buying unnecessary household cleaners/products llike fabric softener etc.

    I'll start using chux and washing them. We downgraded the phone bill last month. We have a fuel budget so fuel up one a fn. I use my woolies card for cheaper fuel. I dont buy any cleaners or softener and I only use 1/4 to 1/2 a scoop of washing powder and only wash in a full load.

    So would a bread maker and yogurt maker be worth the money? We only use a loaf a week for ds1s school lunches.
