With flu season in full swing, there’s no better time than now to share with you our new grown-up purchase. I work at a school where I’m constantly surrounded by sniffling, sneezing students, and I’m forever reminded of the famous mom phrase, “Don’t forget to wash your hands!” Heck, it’s not just moms telling you to wash up, it’s also the signs on the trains, buses, and common areas of most public places in Chicago. And who wouldn’t want to pump our latest score from Target, coming in at just 8 bucks. Happiness really does come in a bottle. Er, the shape of one anyway.
Good bye to my days of spending 10 minutes in the soap aisle searching for the perfectly sleek one-time use plastic bottles (i.e., no lemons and flowers, no sea creatures swimming through the clear goo, and no boasting, “new design, same great formula!”), only to obsess over the extra buck for the cuter dispenser. No more, not in this household. Scott and I ponied up a crisp ten dollar bill for a huge jug of liquid soap (on sale for $2 with my Target mailer coupon) and this perfectly chic sudsy pump. Wash in style, my friends. Wash on.
