Let’s be honest: we are all always looking for ways we can save money. I try to save money at the grocery store, when buying the kids an endless supply of clothes they seem to outgrow every couple of months, and I especially try to save money at home. By being efficient and a little creative, it’s easy to save money for your family. You can make your own cleaning products, learn how to cook once a month in bulk, clip coupons (or use electronic coupons) when shopping, and even regrow veggies and herbs that you use often.
Whether you realize it or not, you regularly spend a lot of money in the bathroom. From water and shampoos and conditioners, to soap, razors, and toilet paper…that’s a lot of money we spend for the bathroom! So I thought I’d share 5 ways to save money in your bathrooms that you can start using today.
5 Ways To Save Money In Your Bathrooms
Make Your Own All-Purpose, Shower, Glass, and Toilet Bowl Cleaners
It doesn’t take much time and it’s worth the effort, trust me! Once you start making your own cleaning products you won’t every buy them again. They work and they will save you a ton of money. And although some of the ingredients (like the essential oils) may seem expensive, you use such a small amount of them each time you make the all-purpose cleaner that it will last a very long time.
Make Your Own Streak Free Glass Cleaner: Mix 2 cups of water with 1/4 cup of white vinegar, 1/4 cup of rubbing alcohol, and 1 tbsp. of corn starch.
Make Your Own Toilet Bowl Cleaner: Sprinkle baking soda all over the inside of the bowl and add a 1/4 cup of white vinegar. Leave it to work it’s magic by foaming up for a few minutes. Scrub it down with a toilet brush and flush it.
I’ve got lots more make-your-own ideas and recipes on Pinterest, too!
Buy Razors On the Cheap
Consider joining the Dollar Shave Club that will ship razors really good razors to you for as little as a dollar a month! Not sure it’s legit? There are no fees, no commitment, and you can cancel anytime. Satisfaction is also 100% guaranteed. This one was a game changer and money saver for us…I highly recommend you check it out and try it!
Use Your Bath Towel More Than Once
When you get out of the shower or bath, you’re clean! Really you are just wiping clean water off of your clean body, so don’t be afraid to use that towel for more than one shower. Switch it out after every couple of showers and you’ll save yourself time and money when it comes to doing laundry. You just reduced towel laundry by half!
Buy In Bulk
Yes, it may seem like your shelling out a ton of money at once, but buying things like soap, toothpaste, shampoo and conditioner, tissue, etc. really does save you money in the long run. Especially if, like our house, the kids tend to use way more than they need to.
Use Toilet Paper That WORKS!
We go through a ton of toilet paper in our house, and all of us prefer soft toilet. We use it on the toilet (obviously), to blow noises (allergies galore here), and to wipe away tears and makeup and even for little bathroom spills. We buy Charmin® Essentials Strong because it’s the soft that Charmin® is known for, and is so strong that you don’t have to use a ton of it to get the job done. That means you use less toilet paper than you’d have to use with other, cheaper brands. You’re already saving money!
Growing up, my mom used to buy whatever toilet paper was on sale, and we’d have to use a ton of the cheap stuff because it was so thin. And it wasn’t soft. So while I’m not loyal to many household brands, I am loyal to Charmin Essentials because the products always work just like you expect them to. Charmin® Essentials Soft and Charmin Essentials Strong are two new products designed to provide you with more of what you want at a comparable price to the product that you currently use.
And check this out…
Charmin Essentials rolls are HUGE! 6 Charmin Essentials rolls are the same as 24 regular size rolls. And Charmin Essentials rolls are even bigger than other brand double rolls. So you are definitely getting more bang for your buck with Charmin Essentials.
Don’t worry about breaking the bank; Charmin Essentials is just as affordable as your current toilet paper. Charmin Essentials Soft provides Charmin-like softness at an Angel Soft®- like price, while Charmin Essentials Strong provides a big Charmin roll at a Scott® 1000- like price. No compromising quality for price!
Still not sure? Charmin is inviting shoppers to upgrade their Angel Soft® for Charmin Essentials Soft and Scott® 1000 for Charmin Essentials Strong. It’s simple to participate.
