My soap is just a plain old fashioned bar of Ivory soap. It isn't in a bottle.
I keep it simple, too. Mine is Suave Daily Clarifying shampoo. I also turn it upside down when it's almost gone. And ditto on the Ivory.

DH has a bottle of Equate (WalMart brand) dandruff shampoo and a bar of Zest.

Wow, what a coincidence! Sounds like we think alike on this.

Well, but were they all in the shower? I have a bunch of other bottles in my guest bathroom but they aren't in the tub/shower. They are under the sink or on/in my medicine cabinet, and so on, in the guest bathroom. I don't really use those bottles so probably ought to toss them. I shower in the master bath and the bottles in that shower are the only bottles I was counting.

DW has two conditioners, one shampoo, one soap.

I have one soap, one shampoo.

She also has several of those little short candles (brain cramp - I forget what they're called) in the master bath with the extra-large tub.

Votive candles? After all, the bath is a sanctuary. Reminds me of the bathtub scene in "Bull Durham."
