I recently stumbled onto a money-saving tip that others might like.
* * *
In the past I saved coupons and waited for sales to stock up on air freshener for the bathrooms. While doing some cleaning and decluttering, I found a bottle of old cologne that I had gotten as a white elephant gift a long time ago. It was a fragrance I would never wear.
In fact, I seldom use cologne any more because so many people are allergic, and I work in an office where I am around a lot of people.
I decided to use the cologne as bathroom air freshener. It only takes one or two little puffs each time, so that one bottle lasted months!
It might not have been a great fragrance to wear, but it wasn't so bad as an air freshener. When it was used up, I bought a $1 bottle of cologne from the Dollar Tree, and now I'm using it in my bathroom. The bottle looks nice sitting out too.
You can also buy cologne in a masculine fragrance for his bathroom. I haven't done the scientific work, but I would venture to guess that my $1 bottle of cologne replaced at least 4 cans of air freshener.
