Mum Cuts Her Dishwasher Tablets In Half And People Are Going Crazy
Raising a family is a costly affair. With so many mouths to feed and clothes to clean, the shopping bill can get longer and longer each week.
 
However, to save a bit of money, one particular mum decided to tackle one thing in particular – dishwasher tablets.
 
Blogger PinkyandThrify is on a mission to spend just $140 a week on groceries and to reduce the amount of waste her and her family create.
 
She shares her tips on her Instagram page where she has over 5,000 followers.

One of her tips about a particular money-saving hack that not many people would have considered has caused a bit of a stir on her page – in a good way.
 
Sharing a photo of her dishwasher tablets cut in half, the mum simply wrote: “Because they still clean just as good.”
 

This way out of a box of 30 tablets, the mum actually gets 60, and cutting them doesn’t compromise on cleaning.
 
Not surprisingly, her post went down a treat, with plenty of people sharing their own frustrations and thanking her for the tip.
 
“Interesting,” wrote one. “I had never thought about doing this before but it kind of makes sense especially if the halves do just as good a job.”
 
Another said they have been doing this for a while and are delighted with how much they save.
 
“We have always done this cut ours in half - half a tablet a day we get the pack of 40 for around $6 and it usually last us up to 2 months it’s fantastic savings and value.”
 
"Ooooooh thank you for the idea! Never even considered it to be an option but I'm for sure going to try it!" commented another. 
 
What do you think - will you be giving it a go?
