A friend of mine and his wife are doing a bit of cutbacks on spending and some of the things they've been working on makes sense. For example, they're doing a lot more of cooking at home versus eating out and they're buying more generic stuff instead of name brand.

There is one thing thing that he is upset about though. His wife came home the other day with bar soap instead of his normal body wash and that is where he says he draws the line.

Asking him what the problem was, he said that the bar soap is irritating and he has to have the body wash to feel right.


For me, it doesn't really matter as long as I'm clean.

Do you have a preference? Why?
