So, I thought it would be fun to show you what the top posts were in 2013 on Stacy Makes Cents…and what’s ironic is that most of them aren’t even from 2013. :-) These are the posts that get the most visits, both from Pinterest and from Google searches. So, because I love making lists and because a picture is worth 1,000 words, here they are in order:


#13: Homemade Castile Laundry Soap (This post has actually been removed because of the comments I was receiving about it not working – it worked for us, so that’s all I know.)


#12: Homemade Dishwasher Detergent (Still no dishwasher here…happily.)


#11: Crock Pot Cheeseburger Soup (Y’all love cheeseburger as much as we do!)

Homemade Granola-Bars

#10: Make Your Own Granola Bars (I’m getting hungry now.)


#9: MaMa’s Crock Pot Cube Steak (Guest post from my awesome friend, Tia.)

  5. Hi Stacy. I’m stopping in from Let’s Get Real today. I was really excited to see what your top posts were. I was surprised that so many were not recipes. You are just all kinds of popular, aren’t you?! Your recipes are some of our favorites. I’m looking forward to trying some new ones from this list.
