    The people who were not raised in our era have no idea what good eating is!!! Beans and cornbread are
    the best!!!

    I store them upside down when that happens. Then I just unscrew the top, use the pump to dab some on my hands, put the top back on and move on.

    Perhaps, it has something to do with whether you were raised by parents who lived through the Depression, (I did), or people who think abundance is our right.

    I knew it.

    I just turn it upside down, set in a cup or something, until all the lotion/shampoo/soap runs to the top. Then I empty it into another container.

    Wow I learned that tip from my Mother when I was about 4, she did it all the time. Can't believe people of that era did not know about it!

    Hello

    While I am in the 40 plus age group, I did indeed know that!
    I wish to grow into a better person than I am.

    Doghouse Mom, your ice cube comment brought a belly laugh!! Love your humor!!

    My mom still practices the thrift she grew up with in the Depression. My Dad could never refuse a "gift" of someone else's cast off(s), because it "might come in handy someday." I drive my husband nuts when I try to figure out how to reuse things that should be thrown out. It's just amazing how much the 70 and 80's babies don't know. They never had to learn.
