Frugal Friday Five

Little habits of thrift I got from my parents:
  • Squishing slivers of soap together to make another bar of soap.
  • Squeezing and flattening the toothpaste tube and then cutting open the mouth of the tube to get that last bit of toothpaste out.
  • Adding a little water to an empty shampoo bottle to get the remaining shampoo out.
  • Reusing plastic shopping bags as garbage bags.
That last one makes sense because I don't usually have very much garbage, so it would be a waste to buy those large garbage bags. The first three though... I don't know... except that by stretching it out, I can put off going to the store to get more soap, toothpaste, or shampoo. Yeah, that's it. Laziness.

On a different note, how did I end up on the NJ GOP mailing list?

From thefridayfive:

1. Do you like chicken?
Do I?

2. What is 1 food you can't live without?
Quite possibly fried fish.

3. Are you an early bird or a night owl?
What's with all those birds? :)

4. Chocolate or vanilla?
Vanilla, then chocolate.

5. Are you more of a cat person or a dog person?
