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!
