A few drops of an essential oil goes a long way along with a trip to the Dollar Store to find soap containers. I love the Dollar store for DIY projects and use my Dollar Store shopping strategies when planning craft and DIY projects. The Dollar Stores can be a make or break stop to decide if a prospective DIY is affordable versus a budget breaker.
