Simplifiy Your Life by Home Ecomony - Soap Pumps

Being a good home economist can simplify your life tremendously by saving time, energy, and money.  If you make things last longer, you don't have to drive to the store to replace them as often - saving you drive time, shopping time, money, and the energy it takes to go to the store. So, one way to be a good home economist is...

Use less pump soap. If you have kids in the house, you know what I a kid pump some soap in their hands and they use a lot. It's not really their's the way soap pumps are made. They go down so far  and I'm convinced manufacturers' did this on purpose so you go through soap faster and have to buy more quicker.

Quick, easy, and cheap remedy - a rubber band. Tie a rubber band on the neck of the pump and it won't go down as far. You can more than double the life of your soap bottle.
