Crafty Shampoo Trick

I purchased a large bottle of Basics shampoo from Boots 25p and transferred it into an empty posh bottle of shampoo - teenage daughters comments this morning, Mum that shampoo is lovely please don't buy anymore cheap stuff!!!
anyone tried any of the other Basics range?

    Hee hee, I think its a brilliant idea, just goes to show that we waste a fourtune on posh brands just because of a label and a name!!

    Reminds me of the time my other half was insisting that expensive bottled water was so much better than tap water, so for a few weeks kept topping up her bottle in the fridge with tap water, never a comment, then I came clean and she's never bought a bottle since!

    what a brilliant idea! I wish I had thought of that 10years ago (she buys her own now!)
    Stop looking for answers....
    The most you can hope for are clues.....:)
  • I bought loads of pantliners in the basics range for 29p each when they were gving 50 points - they're still going and I gave lots away to my sisters too!

    Course, I think some people may still prefer them instead of post-its or even to line the hamster cage

    i use the basics baby bath for my kids and also the toothpaste, It's fine, nothing amazing just does the job and thats ok by me.
