Toothpaste to the last drop

My parents should be given credit for these saving tips. I respect them for having lived such frugal yet generous lives.

I. Toothpaste

By the time we cannot squeeze out any more toothpaste from the tube, we cut the tube into a few pieces. Then we can use the leftover toothpaste inside the tube. A small (4.6 oz, 130g) toothpaste lasts us about one and a half week more by doing this.

II. Shampoo, Dishsoap

When you cannot pump out any more shampoo or dishsoap from the bottle, add water and shake to use the leftover inside the bottle.
