No, I am not talking about Maxwell House Coffee. Since 1917, Maxwell House has branded it’s coffee using, “Good to the last drop” advertisement slogan. We all know it! This time, I am speaking of another product and my fetish. It started over 40 years ago when I was in college. Funds were tight, so I made use of every dollar that I spent. In order to get all of the toothpaste out of the tube, I would cut the tube in half when the toothpaste would not freely come out of the seemingly empty tube. In fact, I could get an extra 2-3 more brushes afterwards. Conclusively, the toothpaste tube wasn’t really empty. Old habits die hard! Perhaps, I am a toothpaste penny pincher because I still cut the tube in half! I use every drop of my Colgate! Every little bit helps! Those pennies add up!
