Works for me Wednesday - Making beauty products last longer

I buy a fair amount of beauty products in these squeeze tubes, from face wash to moisturizer to hair products.

When it gets to the end of the tube and it seems like it is totally empty (even after rolling the tube as much as possible to get the last little bit out, I cut the top 1/3rd off, like this.

You can then reach inside and get the rest of the product out. I usually find that I get at least two more uses out.

The reason I only cut it around the one-third mark is because I want to be able to close it again without the stuff drying out (that has happened to me before).

It used to frustrate me, knowing that I couldn’t get it all out but now, this works for me.
For more great tips, go visit Shannon over at Rocks in my Dryer.

Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day!

Lara, thanks for visiting! I've been over many, many times to your site too!

Proverbs 31 - isn't it usually the simplest things that evade us? LOL
