Short But Sweet (Smelling)

This is truly a senior citizen super saver suggestion.

When your bottle of roll-on deodorant is nearly gone, store the bottle upside down. 

 You will be amazed at how much glop still lives inside. You can probably use it an extra week or two! How’s that for making a buck stretch?

Don’t do this until the bottle is nearly empty. If it still has lots of glop in it.....
it can seep out the roller ball and you have a mess. This mess does not happen when the bottle is nearly gone. You do not get the same wonderful results if you store it right side up, then just try to shake the living daylights out of the bottle to get out more gloppiness. You’ll end up wasting a lot of stuff inside.

By the way, I don’t recommend prying the ball off the bottle to get access to the excess. Disaster city! Just try the upside down thing, even if it looks stupid.


Cheapo, cheapo hint: I have discovered that you can sometimes buy Avon products on Ebay much cheaper than getting them from a sales rep. Even when Avon has a sale, even when you have to pay shipping to buy from Ebay, if you shop around Ebay, you just might find what you are looking for at a much cheaper cost. Try it!

...and one more thing......
uh, I'll get back to you when I remember it.

Sure wish this had been posted yesterday I just threw out what I thought was an empty bottle of deodorant, rats.
