Using it all up

Oh I do hate waste.  So I take care to reduce, reuse, repurpose and recycle whenever I can.

A few weeks ago I realised that my poor hands had suffered from lots of bare-hand gardening.  What they needed was hand cream, and lots of it.  I looked around, all I could find was a seemingly empty tube.

But wait, what if I cut it open to see if there was any left inside?

Sure enough, not only was there some left, but actually enough to provide several applications a day for several weeks.

Just think, I could have just thrown it all away.

Same approach, in the bathroom, kitchen, and anywhere else using packaged products.

Do you have similar thrifty tips to share?

I love to read your comments. I don't expect everyone to agree with me, and I don't mind if you don't. However, I ask you to respect the 'circle time' rules made by my son's primary school teacher: make a comment, ask a question or say something nice. Thank you!
