I went around the house and put rubber bands on ANY pump type bottle. The hand soap ones dispense way more than we need, and of course the kids and husband think they need 2 pumps or the stuff won't work. So, I put a rubber band around the pump part where it goes into the bottle. This way it won't go down as far, and won't dispense as much. I also thinned out our handsoap 1/2 and 1/2 with water. I have a big jug of it, and I was thinning it in the pump bottle, then just shaking it. BUT if husband or the kids refills, they don't thin it. So as we were down to half a jug, I thinned it IN the jug. I also use any shampoo we get and don't like. Most of it is fine for hand soap anyway. We had a couple of bottle of cheap no-name (the brand is something I can't pronounce) tea tree shampoo. It is terrible on hair, but at 99 cents for 16 oz, it is fine for hand soap, esp thinned out. I also found that my mom had several of those bags the grocery stores sell to insulate your frozen foods until you get home. I snagged 2 from Mom and put one in each of our trunks. That way if we are going out, I can pop drinks in there with-o finding a cooler. I can also stick leftovers from a meal out in there and still finish the errands. The kids have not been eating as much in the hot weather, so this has helped on the rare occasions we eat out. I can also grab cold stuff AND run a very short errand with-o my milk going bad OR driving home and back out. Usually this isn't a big deal as I plan the shopping carefully now. But once in a while one of us springs an errand in unexpectedly. And then I can go get it done quickly. So what new (or old and forgotten but now remembered) things are you doing?
