I keep a small jar of baking soda along with a blush brush to lightly brush under my arms after a shower. Keeps me fresh smelling AND dry. You could also use this on the feet after your shower, before dressing.
I also keep a jar on top of my cat's litter box to sprinkle in their box to
re-freshen it daily between cleanings. It doesn't add sickeningly fake scents to the air but does freshen it!
I was looking at deodorant/antiperspirant and noticed that the men's had more in it than the women's did, for the exact same amount of money. I just chose a men's fragrance that I liked and bought the men's. Anything to save money these days is certainly welcomed.

Men's deodorant is usually a lot cheaper than women's deodorant. I often buy the men's stuff in unscented. It's nice to have it last longer and I have noticed no difference in using it. It works great.

Instead of using expensive feminine deodorant spray that usually that comes in a small can, just use a large can of spray deodorant. You get a larger amount of deodorant spray for a lot less money.
I like to use the Crystal Solid Deodorant as it is supposed to be safer for prevention of breast cancer. These Crystal Sticks are about $6 to $7 each, and with the economy what it is, every penny counts. Upon opening my new one, I dropped it and broke it, and a huge chunk fell off. I tried to use it but it was rough and hurt and unusable.
So I took a small piece of sand paper and sanded the rough edges off. And voila, I have saved my crystal. The amount left will last me for months and months and it still works perfect.

The best coupons I have found to buy deodorant are around Mother's Day and Father's Day. Usually with coupons and BOGO sales, you can easily stock up for the year and beyond. If you have an opportunity to buy brands or scents that are not your first choice but are just about free, please send them off to your local food bank or homeless shelter.

I chose to make my own deodorant rather than buying the ones in the store. It's better for the earth and saves money. I love how being frugal can be so good for this. Anyways, I got a bunch of deodorant sticks cheaply and want to use them up. What are some ways to reuse the deodorant sticks afterward?

Try making your own stick deodorant! If you google "make it yourself deodorant" you will get a bunch of web sites for making your own deo. That way you can reuse those containers that you already have!
