We're moving downtown next month to be closer to my new job. It'll be just about 9 blocks to commute! We're paying an okay rate for a one bedroom apartment with a small yard, and we have to pay $50 a car for parking. (I figure we'll be saving the $100 in gas each month anyways) Any ideas on how to live frugally in the big city? Also, I'd love any tips on how to make natural cleaning products for the home, and what you guys use instead of commercial laudry detergent and softener.
