When Grace came to live with us (our new cat) she came with a very small litter box which I realized was NOT going to work as much of what she deposited ended up on the OTHER side of the litter box...if you get my drift. So, I went to Wal-Mart and although they had one that was deeper it wasn't really much bigger. I had a nice one for Patches when she was alive but when she passed I gave all her things to the Friends of Animals organization here in our town. So, I looked on the internet and found all kinds which ranged in price but none were FREE and there was shipping and handling on top of that. I've been trying to use what I have and not buy things and to think "outside the box" or in this case "inside the box" so at first I looked for an old plastic tub that I might have but although it was deep it wasn't very big but then I spied a plastic bin that I had used for paperwork when I moved. Perfect! It was deeper but not too deep and gave her plenty of room to turn around. It WAS free too! As you can see, she spent no time at all "getting down to business" in her new "bathroom". LOL!
I decanted some into a small glass jar I had saved from some previous face cream and I've been using it for about 2 weeks now. I love it! I no longer need 2 creams; one for my face and one for my eyes. I also like the fact I don't have to be so careful not to get it in my eyes. It is also warmer to place on my face than creams which tend to be cold. It is MUCH less expensive on a cost per use basis too. After I apply it I let it soak in a bit and then blot it off with a clean towel.No wonder those Mediterranean women have such beautiful complexions. I wonder if it's too late for me? LOL!
I also have olive oil in a little spray bottle in the kitchen that I decanted from the big jug and I use it for spraying pans/dishes when a recipe calls for that type of spray. It is much cheaper than buying those cooking sprays and again no chemicals or funny aftertaste.
I love liquid soap and have been a fan for years as I was so tired of the mess in soap dishes and on sinks. But I was also looking for a pure face and body wash and even the ones that stated they were natural and ph balanced etc. had lists of unpronounceable ingredients on their packaging. There are many organic options too but again many are very pricey but I found that Dr. Bonner's castile soap was about as pure as I was going to get in an affordable soap for my face and body.
