Lil Miss Thrifty: How to save your stash! +

I picked up this brilliant tip from the show 'Super Scrimpers' and I just had to share it with you all. 

Do you ever struggle with squeezing every last bit of product from a tube? Even if you squeeze the container with all your strength, does the product still refuse to come out? This has happened to me on a countless number of occasions, and fortunately, I have found a solution ;)

So here's how to save your stash!

Step 1: 
This only works on containers such as the one above. This is my favourite hand cream (Yardley, English Lavender) - and unfortunately, no amount of squeezing helped! 

Step 2:
Cut the container about two thirds from the bottom, until you have two separate pieces

Step 3: 
Now that it has been cut open, you can see the amount of hand cream that is still left! 

Step 4:
Place the lid back on top and hey, you've just saved every last bit of the product!  Even though I probably would not be able to take this hand cream outside, I can use it in the comfort of my home (because when you cut it, there will be a hole - so don't put it in your handbag!)

What do you guys think? 

Hope it helps!

  2. I do this with pretty much all my products (even the one's that really can't be cut through-always worth a try!). I empty the product into sample jars instead (the one's with the screw top lids) and then chuck the packaging (mostly because I'm clumsy and would end up making a mess otherwise) =)
