Soap savers are a good way to save money in your home. They have raised nubs that lift soap bars off the dish and allow air to flow freely around the soap, which helps it to drain and dry completely. This will make your soap last long thus saving you money in the long run.
Above is a photo of my old soap saver. I originally bought this one from the Dollar Tree. At the time I could get two of them, which I did, for $1.00 or buy the larger one from $1.00. I opted to get the smaller ones, so I could have two of them, which turned out to be a mistake on my part.
From this and the photo below you can see that it was too small to get the job done. The soap was always sliding off the soap holder an sitting in the liquid under the soap anyway, so it did not serve its purpose very well.
So, while I was at Lowe's last week I spotted this nice big one:
As you can see from this photo, it fits the bar of soap much nicer.
Live simply by not spending money you don't have.
