Recession Tip!

I don't even think I've shared this one with Shelby....it really didn't seem to be a big deal before. But with today's economy, little savings can add up. When I was refilling my foam hand soap container, I realized that everyone may not know that you don't have to throw out the old one and buy a new one!

They don't match the bath stuff in my bathrooms, but I always peel away the label....and you could always decoupage it with colored tissue paper or pictures! I prefer it plain....so what if it doesn't match the soap dish!

I can't remember how I figured it out, but all you have to do is add about two tablespoons of the antibacterial refill soap and fill the rest up with water! I prefer the foam soap because it's not so concentrated, but it's a huge savings over the regular soap pump. I've had this refill container for about a year and we have four foam soap pumps in our house that I keep filled. What a savings!

Hey Cola! GREAT idea...I have the pumps too but never knew about this, so I will store away the info for future use! Thx!
