Desperate times


All week long, I've been squeezing my makeup tube and telling myself to stop at the drugstore and buy more. Have I done it? No. I've just kept squeezing and hoping to get just a little more out of it. This morning, however, no matter how hard I squeezed, nothing came out. I was getting ready for church. I was not going to church without make up. No way. Desperate times call for desperate measures. I cut that tube in half with a pair of scissors. You won't believe how much make up is lining the inside of those two halves! I bet I could go another whole week without paying $12 for a new tube. Sometime today, I have to go by the drugstore cause I forgot to stop on my way home from church, too....

I've lost count of how many times I've done that! I've done it to make-up, bath and body works lotions, toothpaste, virtually anything in a tube! Hey, I gotta squeeze where I can so I can have more money for scrapbookin stuff!
