This made me laugh.  Not because I don't use all the soap chips, I do.  I melt them down for liquid soap, too.

But, it made me laugh because it made me think back to when I was little.  My Nana was a frugal one for sure.  I came by my frugal roots honestly it seems.  LOL.  She always took a stocking (hosiery) and cut it off at the knee.  The soap pieces went to the toe and she tied off the top in a way that it would loop onto the handle in the tub/shower.  This kept the soap pieces together and yet you could use it to wash with.  She would just keep adding soap pieces to it as they came along.  And, she would toss the stocking in the laundry with her delicates every now and then.  Guess she kinda created her own form of "soap-on-a-rope".  LOL.  But, not a single sliver of soap went to waste in her household!  I remember her bathing me with it.  It created suds like all the fancy shower flowers do today!

I used to use body wash only, that is until I discovered Whole Foods Triple Milled Green Tea Soap !!! LOL

Now I am addicted heeheee. I can get it on sale for $2.99 and the regular price is $3.99 . I know it is not cheap that is one of a few things I splurge on. I did not use it for a month then I had soap withdrawals. LOL I went back and bought it , I will not feel guilty!!! I am frugal , I am.

I use body wash. I don't have a preference of body wash or soap, I just get the cheapest.

My mom always kept a nylon sock in the closet and added soap chips to it, then we took it camping with us! She'd knot it and hang it on the tree by a bucket of water for quick handwashing. :) You're right, it lathers nicely!

Collect them till we have enough to do something with. I grate it and then melt it for my laundry detergent or body wash.
