Tips for saving money on toothpaste. Post your ideas!
Cut your toothpaste cost down by only adding a pea sized amount to your toothbrush. My dentist told me that he doesn't even use toothpaste, just warm water and soft toothbrush. The brush is what cleans your teeth, the agents that claim they fight cavities and tartar are not in your mouth long enough to do anything. Just plain warm water does the job, but if you are like me, I couldn't get past the unclean feeling I had. So in the morning, I just use a very small amount, for freshening. Then at night, I just use warm water. At night it doesn't bother me to not have a clean feeling.

Back in the 1950s, toothpaste manufacturers enlarged the size of the hole on the toothpaste tube.
This proved to be one of their greatest profit making ideas. Be very careful when squeezing that tube to insure only a pea size amount comes out.
You don't even need a pea-sized amount of toothpaste. I put as thin a layer as possible across my whole toothbrush, and the toothpaste foams up just as much. Sometimes when I spit, there's STILL a little blob of toothpaste there. So, keep trying less than you think could possibly work.
