Does your family go through shampoo, conditioner, and liquid soap like it’s running out of style?
Well, I’ve got a cheap trick to pump up the savings: Refillable pump bottles!Refillable pump bottles allow for just the right amount of product to be dispensed. And because you are using a neat dispenser, you’ll have less waste from spills, etc.
You can purchase refillable pump bottles at most department stores or thrift shops, but the cheapest way to get one is to buy a product in a pump bottle and then rinse it out and refill it when it is empty. If you have access to a Silhouette Cameo machine you can dress up your pump bottle to match your decor. Just remember to avoid using a glass container in the bath or shower.
When you use a smaller, controlled amount of product – whether it’s shampoo or hand soap – you’ll save money. You can also save money by buying large containers and using them to refill your smaller pump bottle.

I enjoy your common sense approach to being frugal and look forward to receiving your articles. I’ve passed your site on to my daughter in law. She’s a stay at home with two little girls under five years of age. During these times folks are scrambling to find ways to hold on to their hard earned cash. As I told someone just the other day “Being frugal is the new chic!”
I wish they had been around when I was raising my children but the pump sprayers that spray “foam” instead of liquid are wonderful. I splurge now that the kids are raised (with a coupon and sale of course) and buy them at Bath and Body Works, but I think you can order this type online. One bottle lasts us about six months! I’m not sure but it would be awesome if they could be used for shampoo.
