Here is a tidbit that might save you some money. Often times, I end up using more conditioner than shampoo. When this happens, I sometimes try to “catch up” with my shampoo and use more than I need so that I can buy both at the same time. Now, you don’t have to do that! One easy way to save money is to buy pump bottles. Target and Wal-Mart have them. You can buy the soap kind like above, or the plastic ones they have near the travel section. Since we are saving money, you don’t have to buy really nice ones. I mean, its not on your sink for everyone to see—Its in your shower!
You should buy one for shampoo (if you and another family member use different, but another pump bottle), one for conditioner, and one for your body wash (if you don’t use bar soap). Because your shampoo and conditioner is now in a pump bottle, it is easier to regulate yourself on how much you pump out each wash. You can also teach kids not to waste extras by showing them they only need one or two pumps. And
If you don’t buy body wash, but use a bar soap—this is what I have learned. If you open the bar of soap when you get home from the store and just set it in your cupboard where it can dry out, when your current soap is out and you pull this one out of the cupboard, it should last longer since it has had time to dry out (not a day, but a couple of weeks to a month should work fine). This is what I have been doing with some soap that I bought on clearance at Wal-Mart. It is just sitting in the bathroom waiting till it is all nice and “dried” so that it can last me longer.
Happy saving money!
