The Cheapo's Guide To The Universe, Part #34

Just when you thought your super human grip strength was not going to extract any more paste from the tube, when you have squeezed and squeezed and nothing issued forth  - pure constipation - this is when you take a pair of scissors and cut the damn thing in half.  You would scrape three more days of use out of a standard 5 oz. tube of toothpaste.  That's 78 days instead of 75 days for me to go through a tube.  Let's say it costs $6 for a fancy brand of toothpaste with organic neem and no fluoride or sodium lauryl sulfate.  Over a ten-year period, I will realize cost savings of a grand total of $11.23. That's almost enough for three pints of organic ice-cream on sale. That's good enough for me.  "I wanted to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life."  Yes, suck it all out.  That's what Thoreau meant.
