Cutting Family Personal Care Expenses

  • Use a mixture of baking soda and salt for brushing teeth.
  • Buy personal care items from discount stores.
  • Buy necessary items such as shampoo and toothpaste at reduced prices when stores offer "specials".
    Ad
  • Compare generic, store and national brands — you may be paying for advertising.
  • Give haircuts and permanents at home. Adopt hair styles you can manage yourself.
  • Try inexpensive cosmetics. Similar ingredients are used in like cosmetic products. The difference in price is often due to promotion or advertising.
