This & That

Here is a picture for El Meredith's Loco! I know, I had to look in my friend Leslie's fridge to see for myself too. There are two stages to this good feeling. The first is, "Oh my word, look at that top shelf and pantry! It is so full!" The second stage is, "Oh my word, look at that top shelf and pantry, it is so empty!" I like both stages because using stuff up is a great feeling. In case you are wandering, this top shelf is entirely filled with milk all the way back. You are looking at 5 1/2 gallons here.

You need to sit down for this next thing I'm about to share with you because seriously, it is going to be good. So, a few months ago the lady at the Clinique counter shared a tip with me and I love her for it. If you use any type of squeeze type bottle for make-up products then you know the drill when you are running low. You beat the life out of that little puppy so you can get out every last drop towards the end. Your hand hurts and your counter is dented.

WELL, DID YOU KNOW that when you are running low and it starts getting hard to squeeze out, you can cut the tube in half with a pair of scissors and keep it stored in a Ziplock sandwich bag? I have gotten 4 EXTRA weeks out of this tube of make-up remover. 4 WEEKS. That is huge! The sealed Ziplock keeps it fresh.

Hmm. I'll have to remember that trick. I don't have anything in a tube except toothpaste though. =)

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the picture of your milk. I now know where all the horizon organic milk goes when I am looking for it at Kroger.

What a tip. I'm going to go cut my lotion bottle in half right now. I'm tired of digging in with my finger every morning.

Oh....I LOVE that makeup remover!! I use that as well. I'm going to remember to cut it when I run low.
I have a friend who does this with lotion as well. She says there is a lot that gets thrown away.
