Festival of Frugality #21

Wandering Indian Monk has posted the
21st Festival of Frugality. This is special to me since this is the first time I've been featured in any sort of festival or carnival.

On that note, Seattle Simplicity has an interesting post on things that she naturally does. This sparked a discussion about soap slivers and hotel soap. Previously I would use 2 bars of soap per hotel visit (one for the shower and one for the sink). Now I have a ziploc baggie that I used to save the soap and I use it weak after weak, giving me 2 additional bars of soap to bring home every week. I started doing this because I wanted to save my hotel soaps to give as part of a bath gift set for a bridal shower I hosted. Now it's just habit.

I like the idea of saving your used hotel soap in a baggie - I hate to waste perfectly good soap just because the maids come through and clean the room!
