Gee, my hair smells terrific

From the archive: Rockford, Michigan

Like any new parents, we’re facing a cash-flow issue. So I started looking into where I could cut back. Beginning with clothes — and going from there. Painful as it is, I’ve pretty much stopped buying anything for me this last month. Not that I’m a crazy shopaholic normally, but every sweater I don’t buy equals something else we can buy for Booger Butt. (Like diapers, formula, and cute little clothes that will only fit him for a couple of months.)

Thus, I was quite pleased to learn that there are indeed hair-care products on department store shelves that give the same kind of results — if not better — than the ones I was paying top dollar for at my hair salon and such places. Who needs Matrix, Bed Head, TIGI, and the countless other $18 shampoos I’ve tried when I can pick up a bottle of Pantene Pro V shampoo and the cool Dove Conditioning Mousse, both for just $4. And I get tons of volume and pretty nice-smelling hair to boot. That, my friends, is a very satisfying feeling.

  1. We buy giant bottles of Pantene at Sam’s club, and I remember getting bulk diapers there, too realllllly cheap! I believe they had formula too.

  2. Yes they have formula there. I am going to check out the prices for grandbaby. I too heard it is less expensive if you can afford bulk. Sales racks are the only way to go.

  3. It’s hard to control the urge to buy for the lil’ ones. As Patti mentioned, Sam’s Club is a hot spot. Don’t forget Kohl’s. Personally, Target is the most dangerous store to our bank account. Something always happen between kid’s toys and the snack aisles that moves the decimal in the wrong direction.

  4. That same thing happens to me at Target. I swear every time I go in there, I spend at least $50. Even if I just need batteries. What’s up with that?
