It's surprising how much product is left when you think the last drop has been squeezed from that tube of facial cleanser, moisturizer, or hair gel. I cut the capped tube in half and find several more applications. With the two halves of the tube placed in a plastic baggie, it's easy to scoop out every last bit - and often there's a generous amount left.
When I'm using a pump bottle of lotion and get that sucking noise and can get no more out of the bottle, I put a small funnel into another bottle in the kitchen and turn the "empty" bottle upside down in the funnel and drain out a goodly amount. If the other bottle is too full for more, I either save it or take the pump out, lay the bottle on it's side and shake the lotion out into my hand -- there's quite a lot of lotion left in the "empty" bottle.
I do this too...you can sometimes get another week out of it. I hate to waste & this is one way to save a little $ too.
