I cut packaging open to get the last drops of product out, don’t you? Call me a tight arse, call me mad…meh. I paid for that product and I’ll damn well get as much use from it as I can. I’ve spoken about this on A Thrifty Mrs a few times before but still, I know people who think the very concept is madness.
I even have a pair of scissors in my bathroom and a knife in my make up drawer both dedicated solely to the business of getting more product out of the packaging. That’s just me.
I seal cut open packages between uses with pegs, mini bulldog clips and replace the cut off portions onto the bottom half to stop them drying out. This week alone I’ve had 3 further days use from a tube of body lotion (BTW I reviewed the best body lotion in the world here), an extra days worth of application from a lipgloss and best yet I discovered about 2 weeks worth of product in an eye cream sample! Hell yeah! SCORE. Honestly this is the kind of stuff which excites me and I take that as strong indication I need to get out a bit more.
Please tell them I’m not the only one who does this, tell them your tricks and how you spend your days excited about scooping out body lotion from a cut open tube at 6.40 in the morning. Please?
