Money Saving Tip of the Week!

SO....
money is always tight around here with 3 kids, and my Mary Kay exfoliant (which is great!) is so not in our budget right now. well, after a little on line searching, i decided to make my own skin exfoliant :) and my face feels amazing!

all i did was use the coffee grounds (approx. 3tsp) that were left in the percalator after my cup this morning, a little less than 1/4 cup of salt, and maybe 2tsp of tea tree oil. mixed it all together and scrubed! my hands are super soft too. there was some left over, so i'll put it in a ziplock and use it in the next couple of days.

just thought i'd share-
happy thursday!

WHAT! I am going to try this! Wait, I don't drink coffee! I will go search for something else to use for a scrub. Great idea!
