Saving Money on Products and Food

Estimates are that up to 15% of the toothpaste and other things we use in tubes are thrown in the landfill.  Why?  Because we do not squeeze the last bit out.

In your kitchen and in most restaurant kitchens, about 8 to 10% of the food in ketchup bottles and tubes are thrown away.  Or when we scrap the bowl when baking or cooking, we do not get it all out.

What to about it?  Get a pair of scissors for the bathroom and some slim spatulas for the kitchen.

I am partial to silicone spatulas, they work really well as they are very flexible, are safe to use in heat and last way longer than rubber ones.

Cut that tube of toothpaste or hair conditioner, use what you need, put the tube in a Zip-loc and use it all up.

Better for your wallet and the earth!

    I managed a sports bar for three years and the owner there was very cost efficient. It was drilled in my head to get every last drop out of any and everything 🙂 If I didn’t I would absolutely hear of it! It took hold, of course.
    Now, if you were to look in my fridge you’d surely see some bottle turned upside down that appears to be empty. Tisk tisk tisk… We know differently.
    Nice post! 🙂
