But you know what? I don't really love its price tag (even with a Black Friday coupon!).
A few months ago on Pinterest I discovered a wonderful handy trick for making your own foaming hand soap (to re-use those great foaming soap bottles), and I tried it and it worked marvelously! I had some unopened baby wash left over from a generous shower gift (two extra bottles!) and now I only use about 2-3 Tbsp of it each time I refill my foaming soap pump. I figure I'm saving big bucks each time I refill and make my own instead of buying a new bottle!
So I've been going along, completely happy with my frugal hand soap solution UNTIL.... I went to do a bit of Christmas shopping. (You know there's nothing better to make you want, want, want than that, right?!) There I was walking around smelling all the gorgeous holiday scents and I started remembering this Vanilla Bean Noel soap, and I started thinking about how I used to buy it every year and how special I thought it was for house guests to wash with something so delicious-smelling, and how that was such a nice tradition aaaaaand of course I wandered over to the soap shop and started gazing longingly at the Christmas soaps.... you know how it goes! But I eventually stopped drooling, decided not to buy it that day, finished my errands and took my self right home before $12 of holiday bathroom cheer leaped out of my wallet.
Later THIS VERY WEEK I was organizing under my bathroom cabinet (hunting the baby soap because it was time to refill my frugal foaming soap and lo and behold I discovered a forgotten bottle of warm vanilla sugar body spray (another generous gift!). Suddenly I thought, WHAT... IF... I pour some of this into my soap mixture?!?!?!?!
And ohhhhhh, I'm so glad that I did it because now I can share my little trick with you! Try this if you dare - I promise you won't regret it. Neither will your pocketbook!
