In my effort to constantly find frugal living habits, I try to look at everyday items in a new light. Years ago, makeup was such a luxury and expense that most women would never dream of throwing out a lipstick tube before scooping out the last little bit. I rarely finish a lipstick because I’m always trying out the newest pink color, but I do scoop out my chapsticks.
This got me wondering what else I could squeeze a little more out of. I’ve often heard of cutting the toothpaste in order to get the last little bit. My favorite eyebrow pencil, elf instant lift brow pencil, is a product I often find myself going through rather quickly. I always panic when I get to the end of one, even though I like to have a few on hand as a back up.
So last time I got to the end, I began investigating how the packaging was put together. I surmised that there was a little more product inside the base, much like a lipstick tube. To my surprise, the top portion of this retractable pencil came off with minimal effort. Look at what I found!
