I hate to see things go to waste. Maybe I go a little far. But every time I get that last little drop, that last little morsel, I feel like I scored a victory over waste. I’ve reaffirmed by creativity and resourcefulness and feel downright smug.
I’ve got it all down to a science. Elevated to a fine art. Got a very slim spatula that gets out that last bit of mayonnaise along the sides of the jar.
I know just how to tilt the dishwashing liquid bottle against my canisters to force those last languorous drops down the cap where it can be easily accessed.
And recently, just when the Secret antiperspirant / deodorant container was starting to rub against my underarms, I figured out how to unscrew the bottom, and force a pencil under the little elevated platform – and voila – another inch of deodorant.
Oh joy! That’ll stave off another purchase for at least a month.
What do you do in your house to get that last little bit of worth out of the products you buy?
