Is it that hard?

If you're frugal like me, you use your beauty items to the very last drop (kind of like Maxwell House, but more along the lines of Colgate and Head and Shoulders!)

So, my question is, is it that difficult to squeeze the tube of toothpaste up from the bottom? It's so helpful in my quest to get every inch of toothpaste out of there, and makes my life so much easier in the long run. And yet, no matter what, my hubby tends to squeeze it from the middle!

I remember hearing these stories. I remember hearing about wives who harassed their husbands about such simple, little things. Mind you, I'm NOT one of them. I've never griped to hubby about it. I may have asked him once or twice, so yes, defending myself before you ask, he does KNOW that I'd prefer he use it that way! And yet, he still squeezes from the middle. Argh! Why? WHy? WHY?

OK, so it's not going to solve international relations or anything if he made the change, and it's sure as heck not going to keep our wireless from fritzing out, or our AC from running, so on a greater scale it really doesn't matter much. But for me, penny-pinching, coupon-cutting, money-saving ME, it'd make things easier when we're at the end of the tube and I'm trying to get a few more brushing sessions in!

Ah, well. I love him, anyway, so I'll let it slide. But about those socks he left downstairs ...


  1. No, it's not that hard. ;)

    Thanks for the suggestions on the table!

  2. Thanks for validating my rant! Can't wait to see pics of the finished product!

  3. Umm, excuse me? Leave us middle of the tube squeezer alone. :)

    Hi, my name's Donna, and I squeeze my toothpaste in the middle of the tube. I do go back and push it all back to the top, but I still squeeze in the middle. I.Just.Can't.Help.It!

  4. Hmmn, maybe you need to come live in my house then! It's not helpful if you're pinching pennies like me and trying to get out EVERY LAST DROP!
