  • We probably spend between $50 to $75 a month on all cleaning and household items. Sometimes more as I am an impulse buyer, especially with health and beauty items!

  • Taking my best guess I would say it averages out to about $100 a month...give or take a few on different months.

  • A HIGH month would be about $25... Usually between $10-$15 a month for everything. I usually only have to buy this stuff once a month or every 6 weeks, because we really don't use it... Also, for stuff like lotion or anti-bacterial stuff that is only used once in a great great while, I just use free samples... For the rest we shop at the dollar stores... I see no reason to pay $5 for something when I can get it for $1 or less...

  • Trying this again...btw how do you accidentally delete something.... anyways...

    I spend next to nothing on home care because I make my own laundry and cleaning supplies. As for shampoo/conditioner, soap, toothpaste and deodorant... I only buy it when it is on sale and I can use double coupons. I normally do not pay more than .50 a piece for that kind of stuff. Anything else is just a luxury we can not afford at this time.
