Frugal deeds for the day: Pictured above are two "scrubs". Scrubbing salts for cleaning our hands. I used what I had and got 3 $1 ingredients from the Dollar Tree. I got the idea this past weekend - we went to a swanky restaurnt and in the bathroom - instead of soap - they had the scrubbing salt and next to it was a sign that said we could purchase some. Small canning jar was $28 plus tax - no thanks! Plus, it was a bit greasy. I figured they used sea salt, baby oil/mineral oil/and coconut fragrance. I used the cute bowl/plate/spoon I got as a lot from the auction last year. It needed a good cleaning - so, used the pictured "scrubber" formerly a potato sack. Then just mixed in some creamy baby oil, epson salt, vanilla essence oil, and some coconut bath salt. Works just as well - but a lot less greasy feeling - and more just moisturized feeling. Got a bunch of errands done. Tonight, for my guilty pleasure,while my daughter attends a tutoring session this afternoon at the bookstore, we will use the BOGO latte coupon and I will browse a bunch of magazines. I need to get out there and plant my fig tree and herbs - they've been in the garage long enough. It is such a beautiful day outside :).
