9 Ways To Save Money in the Bathroom

1.  Stock up on toilet paper when it goes on sale.  It’s never fun running out of toilet paper and then, out of desperation, running to the nearest convenience store only to pay 3 times as much for it.

2.  Use a water amplifying showerhead so you decrease the amount of water you use when you take a shower.  You will save money on your water bill and conserve water.

3.  Conserve water by flushing only when necessary.   As the saying goes, “If it’s yellow, let it mellow.  If it’s brown, flush it down.”  

4.  Use inexpensive natural cleaning products such as baking soda or white vinegar rather than buying expensive and potentially harmful products.  Letting vinegar sit in your toilet all night helps to get rid of the water rings in your toilet as well as helps disinfect it.  Vinegar also works great for cleaning mirrors.  Who needs Windex?  Baking soda works well for cleaning your sink and bathtub.

5.  If you like using bars of soap, you can buy a package of 3 for $1.00 at any dollar store, and sometimes you can find them for even less when they go on sale at regular grocery stores and drug stores.   Try to keep them as dry as possible by draining the water out of your soap dish after a shower or by using a slanted soap dish so the water drains out automatically.

6.  Keep your towels as sprawled out on the towel rack as you can rather than letting them bunch up.  This will allow them to dry more easily and they will be less likely to get that disgusting smell.  By doing this you can wash your towels less frequently saving you both time and money.

7.  Make your own air freshener for your bathroom out of natural products.  One example is to mix a teaspoon of baking soda with a teaspoon of lemon juice and two cups of hot tap water.  Once dissolved in the hot water, put the concoction into a spray bottle and use it in place of those fake chemical air fresheners that are harmful to your health.

8.  Stock up on toothpaste when it goes on sale rather than getting stuck having to buy it at regular price when you run out.  Use it sparingly.  A little dab will do.

9.  If you use liquid hand soap, buy big jugs and refill your dispenser rather than repeatedly buying the small ones.  A small container can cost anywhere from $2 to $4 each whereas the big containers cost around $7 to $10 and have more than ten times as much soap in them.
