How many of you take measures to eke out the last drops or bits of liquid or semi-solid condiments and drinks etc. from their containers ?
I've got upside down ketchup bottles and squeeze-the-tube mustard containers cut in two with a knife so I can get at the last third of the Dijon or Euro mustard.
When draining cans of sauce into a pot on the stove, I will pour out everything that comes out easily, and then balance the can pointed downwards to drain via gravity, by using the metal lid tipped onto the opposite side.
When I have beaten eggs for an omelette, I don't much like introducing water into the mixture to rinse out the last of the beaten egg from the bowl or container I beat them in, and so I will hold it upside down for a long time, watching the little drops slowly moving along, and then combining with one another like raindrops or snowflakes on my windshield in inclement weather.
I hate letting things go to waste, and so I have to fight my tendency to save containers for re-use. I had to actually buy a bag of lunch bags once, when I was on such a budget that I had to go with sack lunches versus eating out. It seemed absurd, having to actually purchase empty paper bags, when there were all of those we used to bring home products we bought for the taking. Instead of throwing them away, just save them. But then you end up getting too many, and start having to say "OK, I'm going to have to get much pickier from now on about which bags I'm going to consider worthy enough for my royal self." I ended up needing almost all of them last time I moved, as packing filler for boxes with fragile stuff in them.
Nor will I( throw out cheese just because it has a spot of mold on it. I'll just cut off the mold and throw it away.
I keep some old clothes too, thinking they'll come back into fashion again eventually. Or that I'll lose some more weight and lat out need shirts and pants in that size, once again. I've still got some of the old "velour' shirts. LOL
