This is so true. I get about another 2 weeks worth of toothpaste after cutting the tube open. You don't need a whole toothbrush full of toothpaste to be effective. I also do this with my favorite Oil of Olay moisturizer, the one splurge I allow myself.
My husband had precancerous spot on his face and hands. The doctor prescribed a tube of medicine which cost over $100. He thought he had used it all out of the tube? I cut off top, slit the side and got several more uses. This also applies to tubes of toothpaste, hand lotions, almost any thing that is in plastic tubes and some containers.

When you think lotion, etc. tubes are empty, cut them open. You probably have another week or so supply of product left. I just put the tube and all in a zip-lock bag.

If you have hand cream, toothpaste, or any other preparation that comes in a tube, a lot gets left inside after you've squeezed the tube "empty". If you cut the bottom off the tube, you can scoop out an amazing amount of the product that would otherwise have gone to waste. Just keep cutting off more from the bottom as you use what is closest to the cut edge, and you won't have any trouble reaching clear to the cap from the inside. I had some Avon skin cream that yielded about 7 more applications from an empty tube.
