Saving Toothpaste

This Sparked Me!

Tooth paste especially kids is expensive these days. Teach you kids to use just the size of a pea on their brush. That is all it takes and it is less messy. We have checked it out and use much less toothpaste, especially if you use the upright containers. They stay upright, do not fall over easily so they are easier to keep clean and sanitized.

    Depending upon the container, cut it open. You may be surprised to see what is still left.
Can do that with any container. I also cut open lotion containers.

    I like this idea. I'm always running out of toothpaste, it seems. Size of a pea...I'll tell the whole family that's what goes from now on. Thanks!
