I'm a big [strike that], I'm a HUGE user of antibacterial/disinfectant spray cleaner.
I use it constantly, and in such a liberal way that I can easily go through several bottles a month, as I use it everywhere around the house, wherever there's need to clean and disinfect.
From the kitchen, to the bathrooms, to floor spills, to carpet spot-cleaning . . . you name it! That means that buying a good quality disinfectant spray can be quite expensive, as they cost anywhere from $2 to $2.50 each.
So what do I do to save every month?

I'm not sure why, but I do love the Foam Soap feeling in my hands!
There is some type of luxurious feeling about washing your hands with foam soap... maybe it is just me, but I do love that feeling. However, no matter how much I do like foam soap, I couldn't help but notice that it cost about double the amount of money compared to the same ounces of regular soap! ... So, the Frugal girl in me can't stop wondering why that is, when it seemed to me that it was just diluted soap, with a fancier cap!
So here I go, on my way to figure out if I was right or wrong! What did I do? I started experimenting with my regular refill soap, diluting it with water, to see if I could get the same results! Trust me, I got couple of combinations that did not work at all, but I finally got it right! And guess what? I was right all along, it is just regular refill soap, diluted with water . . . so why would you pay double the money?
So please, the next time you are running out of foam soap, Keep The Dispenser, and PREPARE your own!, You'll save tons!
It's SO simple:
Who does not love to end end up with amazingly great-smelling clean laundry?
I can't imagine anyone that that will answer no to that question. All of us do!
That's why to get this great result, we have no choice but to buy the liquid Fabric Softener that works during the wash, PLUS the Dryer Sheets that work during the drying cycle, to ensure that the laundry really ends up smelling terrific . . . or NOT!
In fact, when you do that, you are actually buying the same product twice, as they are really designed to be used either or, not both!
I was guilty of making the same mistake, spending that extra money, buying both products. That is until one day I noticed a very young couple in the laundry isle. They were obviously newlyweds, or on a tight budget, or both. He was so mad at her because she was buying the liquid softener, plus the dryer sheets of the same product and fragrance! He was asking her: "why do you have to buy both when they are supposed to do the exact the same thing?" Her answer? . . . "because the laundry never ends up smelling great!" That answer lit up my creative self, and it was the end of my buying both products . . . forever, and start saving!
That actually happened many years before Febreze came to the market, and when it did, I realized I already had my own! So this trick became good for two products in one . . . isn't that awesome?
