|Cheers to shopping sobriety! Right, Don Draper? ... that's lemonade in your glass, right?|
|Seriously, if alcohol was shopping, I'd be like Joan on Mad Men. Think about it: have you ever seen her drink on that show? Wear the hell out of a pen necklace, yes. Drunk? Never.|
Anyway, the one thing that seems to most impress/horrify people is my insistence on continuing to use castille soap as dish detergent. Yes, it leaves an oily film all over my dishes. Yes, that oily film gets thicker and thicker every time I wash dishes with this product. But it cleans my dishes (... I think?) and I still have heaps left (you don't need to use very much) and so I keep using it.
|The problem might be that I bought this kind, lavender castile soap. |
Maybe the non-lavender kind would be less oily? Who knows.
I don't know. It's not that big a hardship, and the fact that it makes me seem like a hardcore frugalista is also pretty awesome.
However, I will not lie. When I'm at work and I finish eating my lunch (which I obviously packed from home in reusable containers) I may occasionally (always) wash the dishes out with the dish soap at work. It gets things so CLEAN!
|Dish soap makes dishes clean! Who knew?|
So, the news is that there is this spot at the front of my building where people leave free stuff when they move out. Remember, I got free knives there one day? So today, somebody totally left out A MOSTLY EMPTY CONTAINER OF DISH SOAP!!!
I mean, a full container may have been a better surprise, but still. There's enough in here for many TWO loads of clean dishes. For certain, the first load is going to include my glasses. Oh, it'll be nice to see them without the castille oil soap film all over them.
