Hi! I am a stay-at-home wife and mother. I have been wondering how to save my family money. When it came right down to it, we had pinched as much as we could and I knew our grocery bill was my last resort. There are things that we buy that I know cost way too much. I have found some really inexpensive recipes, alternatives and tips for things on my grocery bill and just stuff around our house. I want to share these money saving tips with all of you and also get some new ideas from you. Enjoy!

Foaming Hand-Soap

My children just finished using a bottle of B&BW foaming hand soap.  While we all enjoy the scented soaps, it is not in our budget.  Especially because children tend to use more soap than needed when washing their hands.  I have altered my original hand soap recipe and it works in those foaming dispensers.

8oz foaming dispenser (I used one from B&BW)
1/4c unscented castille soap
3/4c distilled water
2-3 drops essential oil (I used peppermint, but use ANY scent you would enjoy)

  1. Stacy,
    Something that I do that will give you good smelling soap . . . I buy a big bottle of hand soap at Meijer when it is on sale, one of those jumbo ones. I put about 1/2 cup of it in my B&BW foaming hand soap dispenser, add water to fill it up, shake and use. When it gets about 1/2 empty, I put more water in it. A big bottle of soap costs about $3 on sale and it will last me at least 6 months, maybe longer. This way I get the yummy smell of soap and it is very cost effective.
