Do you feel like you are spending an excessive amount of money each month and not sure where to cut costs? Well, look no further, the bathroom is the place to start. We spend a lot of money on bathroom products each month that can easily be switched out for a cheaper alternative. I’ve teamed up with The English Shaving Company to give you an insight into how much money we spend in the bathroom. Keep reading for a few of the ways you can save money in the bathroom!
Money Saving Bathroom Alternatives
One great way to save money in the bathroom is to switch up your shaving routine. You would be surprised by how much money you are spending on disposable razors each year, only for them to all end up in the bin. Although they may appear to be a handy grab-and-go item, the truth is there is a better option out there that will save you money in the long run.
Safety razors are a fantastic alternative to a disposable razor. Often referred to as a double edged safety razor, this product is something your grandpa would probably be more familiar with, making a huge comeback due to its money saving and eco friendly nature. Although the initial payment is larger than the cost of a pack of disposable razors, if you look after your razor properly it can last you a lifetime. This means that you reduce your yearly cost of constantly buying razors, instead only having to purchase blades to replace when it gets blunt.
For those of you who don’t know, a menstrual cup is a fantastic new period product that has become popular in recent years. Menstrual cups work similarly to a tampon, but instead of being an item you can only use once, menstrual cups can be reused.
The silicone material and shape of the cup means they can be emptied out, cleaned, and reused. This will greatly reduce your monthly costs as it’s no secret that although a necessity, period products aren’t exactly cheap. Again the initial payment will be higher than a typical box of tampons, though the fact it can be reused will overall reduce the amount of money you are spending.
Low-flow appliances are plumbing fixtures that have been created to use significantly less water than your conventional fixtures. There are several low-flow appliances out there that will reduce your water consumption by at least 20%, this means you will save money on your water bill!
Bathroom appliances such as toilets and shower heads both have low-flow versions available on the market. As with everything, there is an initial larger payment, but the amount you will save on reducing your water consumption far outweighs this initial cost.
