We love us some fancy soap but at $20 a bottle sometimes it's better to be a bit frugal. We've been known to reuse the bottles we love by refilling them with a concoction of our own:

Although making your own soap might not adhere to the time tested methods and specific ingredients that go into our favorite Savon de Marseille, you can still make something that cleans and smells good and all at a fraction of the cost.

Sometimes we just mix some Dr. Bronner's with water, or we follow a similar recipe as the one recently posted on lifehacker which involves bar soap, honey, glycerine, and boiling water (we add lavender oil too).
