I ain't cheap

Just because I drain the liquid soap bottle and squeeze the bejesus out of a toothpaste tube, it doesn't mean I am cheap. I just don't like waste. I didn't mean for the tweezers to be in the photo. I must have been giving myself a good plucking. Nothing quite like a good plucking.

  1. During WW2 when we had severe rationing, people had to make the most of every rationed product. Not a skerrick was wasted!

    Now we have global climate change, limited world resources, over-flowing landfills and decreasing real wages. So we need to be as careful as we were in WW2.

    Far from being cheap for yourself, you are doing it for Australia!

  2. Same here - I hate waste and also assure myself that the recycling people don't want to deal with a 'soft as soap' container that has a centimetre of sludgy pink vanilla jasmine moisturising hand creme left in it.....

  5. Too right Hels. Or perhaps I really am cheap.

    Just seems wrong to throw away the dribbles Kath.

    Jayne, I waste in many other ways.

    Red, friends might tell you that I am actually cheap. I call it value for money.

  6. And re a good plucking why is it so that with women when we get to that certain age we have to pluck white hairs from our chins more and more but our eyebrows start to disappear - sort of a transference -

  7. That certain age happens for men too MC. Hair grows where you don't want it to, but does not grow where you do want it.

Whenever I wish I was young again, I am sobered by memories of algebra.
