No Amount Is Too Small to Save

Members of the family, especially

children are more cooperative

about saving pieces of soap

if you paint a coffee can, cut a slot

in the top and station it near

the bathroom door. Children enjoy

dropping soap bits in the can

as they do pennies in the piggy bank.
