This one is a fun old post that I did in 2013, and I must admit I still do this with Ketchup, Softener and even Cereal Boxes, but is it thrifty, frugal or cheap ?
Is this thrifty? Frugal? Cheap? A while ago I wrote about how I had become my mother and yet I continue to do things like pictured above. What is this a picture of?
When you have bought a new bottle of Fabric Softener but there is still a little left in your old bottle, what do you do?
- Throw the old bottle out and don’t even think about the small amount left because it is insignificant.
- Keep attempting to use the old one and then throw it out.
- Do what this picture shows, descanting the remnants of the old bottle into the new bottle?
Do you do this for Ketchup and other condiments?
I have even found a nifty universal connection contraption that makes this whole thing much simpler when working with condiments.
Have you ever seen only a few Cheerios left in the box, so you just dumped them into the new box of Honey Nut Cheerios (thus creating an amalgamation)?
Is this being thrifty, frugal or cheap?
We do this all the time – it’s frugal. It takes all of 5 seconds and saves product from being wasted!
New label, SMART!
Absolutely! I like it.
This is a GOOD thing. You are not letting it waste. I don’t use liquid fabric softner but I do this with lotion, shampoo, ketchup and dishwashing liquid.
Way to go.
Good answer! It is the cereal mixing that used to drive me mad!
*Don’t use fabric softener?
(In other cases, I decant.)
