You know times are hard when

You cry after bathtime because the 5 year old wasted the brand new bottle of baby shampoo and half the brand new bottle of adult shampoo to make bubbles (I was in the bathroom ironing with my back turned). And there's no money left to buy more until next Wednesday, because your sh just got promoted, but his raise hasn't come thru yet and he's spending every extra dime to pay for the 70-minute one way commute.

aww that sucks. You can stretch your shampoo, though. Just add some water to the bottle. Most shampoos are concentrated anyway, so it won't affect how it cleans.

This and once u do get more also get a few travel bottles so u can put a small amount in it for bath time so if they do waste it all its only a small amount

My kid has wasted so much soap and shampoo, I don't leave it in the tub when she takes a bath anymore. Look for coupons online, sometimes you can find ones that make the trial sizes free as long as they don't say "no trial sizes"
