I’m certainly not known for my frugalness but certain money wasters do bother me. Are you familiar with the Antibacterial Soaps from Bath and Body Works? I’m assuming yes because, I mean who isn’t. Well, it REALLY IRRITATES me to pay so much for a bottle of soap and then when there is an inch of soap left in the bottom, it completely quits pumping the soap and all that soap is wasted. Please someone, tell me this happens to them too.
Anyway, at first I started just removing the pump altogether and shaking down the soap to try to use all that was possible then that just started being a pain to do every. time. I had to wash my hands. And with two potty training girls, I was doing that a lot.
Just recently I had my husband take a sharp blade of some sort (I don’t know, it disappeared into the garage and came back the way I wanted it) and cut the bottle down to right above where the soap was. Then, I had a little bowl of soap to sit on my counter. I put this one in my personal bathroom where no one else goes so our guests weren’t forced to use this. But, we used it up like this. And the soap didn’t even dry out without a top. If that freaks you out, I’m sure a layer of saran wrap would do well.
I’m sure the REAL frugal people would do something fantastic like actually make their own soap with all those yummy scents and never spend so much on Bath and Body Works but this works for me!
