Bathroom Soap Money Saving Tip

Bathroom Soap Money Saving Tip

Are you out of soap?  Too busy to run to the store? 

No worries!

You likely have SOMETHING under your
bathroom sink that will work just fine.

Trust me...

soap is soap is soap..

But wait (you say) I have a foaming soap dispenser...
YES, this will work for your recycled foaming dispenser, too!

Choose one...remember soap is soap is soap...

Okay, so you want to be REALLY frugal?

Then choose this ONE:

However, I am going to choose the Softsoap below because 
it is a large bottle taking up space in my bathroom.  

It has lasted FOREVER!

Ha Ha...I just noticed the bottle says 450+ dispenses.

Yeah, right.

Take that times a million...

Well maybe not a million but close.

Fill it up - maybe about 1/2 inch?  I'm not great at estimating!

Just squirt some in...

Now for a trick...

Turn the water on and let it get HOT.

Is it hot yet?

Turn it down - you don't want BUBBLES everywhere.

If you don't turn it down, you won't get 
much water  in the dispenser because


will be in the way!

Fill it slowly with HOT water.

Keep going...

Look! Full of water and not tons of BUBBLES!

Put the LID on.  Now SHAKE it up!

See you were worried it wouldn't be "soapy" enough.

Now you have BUBBLES at the appropriate time.

There you have it! 

The most FRUGAL soap EVER!  

Well, maybe not ever...

but it IS easy 

AND inexpensive!

Thursday Thoughts - Mason Jar Crafts

My thoughts for this Thursday...How can I decorate my home with mason jars?

How to Make Lanterns Out of Old Jars 
I love this idea for my bathroom...and maybe my backyard!

How to Decorate Mason Jars for A Wedding
No weddings here, but why can't I just put them on my piano all year?

DIY Shabby Chic Mason Jars
I have been wanting to do these for a LONG time.
I want to make mine turquoise, gray, yellow and navy!

DIY Mason Jar Soap Dispenser
I refill my own foaming soap dispenser, but I am just reusing an old  Bath & Body Works dispenser. It isn't appealing! I will just reuse the foaming pump off of the one I have.  I think I will spray the lid with rust proof spray paint.

Canning Jar Kitchen Utensil Holder
This would be a great space saver!

Tuesday Tips - DIY Free Speakers for the Shower

Admit know you sing in the shower!  Would you like to have your music even louder...perhaps to drown out your singing?  (I can't sing a tune to save my life!)

You can easily make speakers for FREE from your kitchen cupboard!

You want to eat a cupcake in the shower? 
Seriously, save it for after your shower.

Enjoy, and SING LOUDLY!  Who cares how you sound! Just be HAPPY!
