Budget 101 Idea for July 2011
One way to save money is in the bathroom and around the Kitchen sink. Instead of having the liquid hand soap at each sink. Buy bar soap and use that. Use a soap dish.
You can buy bar soap pretty cheap and it lasts longer, than the liquid soap. Esp when you have children in the house.
If you have to use the liquid soap, buy the refill packs instead of buying the smaller bottles of liquid soap. Re fill your old bottles.
Now in the bathroom shower use good old fashioned bar soap. You can still use your bath scrubby thingy's, or a wash cloth just the same. You do not need to buy body wash, etc for each person to suit there tastes. ie one for guys and one for girls. Have everyone use bar soap. It is cheaper and it goes a lot longer.
You can buy the Bath scrubbies pretty cheap and give a different color to each person in the house. That way no one else uses someone else's. Same can go for wash clothes, different color for each person, and bath towels too for that matter. Either that or write with a sharpie on the corner of each towel, washcloth who's it is if you have all the same colors!
