How to Get the Most Out of Your Lotion

We’ve all been there: That tube of lotion has gone kaput, but it doesn’t feel totally empty. There’s still some product inside, but you can’t get it out. What’s a frugal girl to do?

First of all, don’t throw that tube in the trash! Grab a pair of scissors and a little elbow grease, and read on.

Got your scissors? Good. Take your fancy tube of lotion and cut it into two pieces—about two inches above the cap. Pry that bad boy open.

Look at all that gold in there! From here you have two options: You can either use a little makeup spatula and scoop it out, storing it in a small container, or you can do what I do.

Simply slide the top half over the bottom half, making a mini tube of lotion! When you want to use it, just slide the top off and scoop your lotion out. Easy peasy!

Hope you enjoy this little little trick!

Until next time,
