Summer = Bubbles. Seriously folks, lots of bubbles. Bubbles in the morning, noon, and night. Bubble usage also means spillage, carelessly dumping of bubbles and overuse which equates dollars in my mind. (At this point, every mother is smiling. You know. Yes, you know.)
In honor of Thursday Thrifty Tip, I'd like to share my (ahem...my husband's) secret bubble recipe that makes gallons of bubbles for pennies on the dollar and keeps the kids smiling.
What you'll need: Joy liquid dish soap, Glycerin (skin protectant found at most drug stores), tap water, and a plastic container* for storing the bubble liquid. Mix together: 2/3 cup of Joy liquid dish soap, 1 gallon of tap water, and 2-3 tablespoons of Glycerin.
Honestly, it is as simple as that and saves you money and worry of your kid's wasting your hard earned dollars. Knowing the kids can have free reign at a favorite summer past-time is priceless.

*Reader's Note: The original milk container I chose for storage as shown in the picture failed. Though it was plastic coated, it could not withstand the bubble mixture. Make sure to pick a completely plastic storage container like a 2 Liter pop bottle.
