Hip2Save reader, Kathy, did something special yet frugal for her husband’s birthday by using a little elbow grease, a few hours of her time, and Mrs. Meyer’s Multi-Purpose Spray!
“I wanted to do something special and thoughtful for my husband’s birthday. Usually, I err on the “cheap” side or don’t do anything at all, but this year, I decided that I would do my best to detail his car. I didn’t have any of the correct equipment and have never even had a detail, but I was going to try!
I asked him to take my car to work one day and fill it up with gas. He wasn’t excited about doing it, but he sure was surprised when he came home to find the vehicle we’ve fondly nicknamed “Beast” to be super clean!
I used the multipurpose spray I got free from the Grove Collaborative sign-up deal. It was amazing as you can tell from the before and after pictures of his steering wheel buttons. I thought the rubber was cracked and broken and the words faded off. But it was just dirt — GROSS! This cleaner was AMAZING, and I’ll probably actually purchase some.
The project was a winner for several reasons:
- My husband was totally surprised and excited about his gift.
- The kids helped, so it was a family project.
- It hardly cost me anything but 5 hours of my time.
- I got to find out what an awesome product the Mrs. Meyer’s Multi-Purpose spray is!
Thanks for posting such great deals and helping our family save for more than 8 years!”
Such a thoughtful and frugal gift!
