Thrifty Household Tips

This was originally posted on my previous blog, “The Coupon Junkie”.  Comments from that blog are included.
I thought that it would be neat to see how the readers save money.  Here are a couple of things
that I do:

1.  We use the zipper baggies at our house.  When I am done using one I don't throw it away.  I add it to my load when washing whites.  I use chlorine bleach when washing whites.  After washing, I hang the bags upside down to dry.
2.  When shaving my legs, I use hair conditioner.    It's cheaper than shaving cream, (unless you can buy some shaving cream for next to nothing, or get it for free.  :-)  ), and it's not as drying as just using soap.  If you have some conditioner that you don't like for your hair, don't throw it out.  Use it to shave.
Now, it's your turn.  Share your money-saving tips.  I look forward to gleaning from you.

I'm a thrifty knitter! I buy ugly cotton sweaters at thrift shops, and take them apart to use the yarn for other projects. :) Much cheaper than buying the thin cotton yarn new!

I like the hair conditionner idea. I will try that.
