It Oughta Be a Law

Half of the bottles, tubes and containers in my house are balanced upside down against walls and towels and other bottles, tubes and containers because I'm trying to get the last drop of lotion, detergent or gel out of the container because I'm so cheap.

I propose a law that all openings for anything liquid be on the bottom of aforementioned containers. Stop the balancing act, now! Power to the cheap!

That is such a clever idea!

Obviously you are not a choco-holic. I am happy to report that Nesquick has done that very thing with their chocolate syrup...too bad you didn't get the patent on that one! Then you wouldn't be home doing your "lack of income taxes;" you'd be gambling in Trump Tower instead.

I'm a cheapskate, too. Of course, being "with the band" most of the time, I never have to pay for anything. :)

She's a modern day jeanyus. That's exactly what goes on over here. The hardest part is the shampoo, because the bottles get all wet in the shower, and then when you squish those last drops into your hand it leaves you only one spare to put the damn thing back upside down, balancing it against the wet wall or other wet bottles, and by that time... aw, dern, all the shampoo's oozed out of my hand.

I am not that patient....I keep a pair of scissors near by and just cut into those tubes.

Yeah, I have a dark side!

A few weeks ago I ventured into my daughter, Julie's bathroom to attempt cleaning it before she returned from visiting her sister. I buy Julie HUGE bottles of Tres Ame (spelling??) shampoo and conditioner and I realize she has long hair but I just couldn't understand why she always needed shampoo and conditioner. I gathered up the nerve, jerked back her shower curtain and an army of upside down shampoo and conditioner bottles begin their attack on me. I overtook them, brought them all to the kitchen sink, emptied them all into one bottle and low and behold, I collected enought to fill an entire bottle of shampoo and three quarters of a bottle of conditioner.
