Every Last Drop

Are you trying to get every last drop out of a jar of spaghetti sauce? If you are frugal you probably are. Here is a great tip I picked up earlier this year -- once you've dumped the sauce, add in some red wine, swish it around, and add to the pan. It is a great way to get out every drop without watering it down. Thanks to Leah Ingram for this great tip!

I've also taken to draining the last drop out of a jar of applesauce. The key is to have a container that is small enough to prevent the jar for hitting the bottom, but large enough not to topple over. My 1.5 measuring cup works well.

And on the medicine front, we commonly add a dash of water to a bottle of liquid medicine. If you swish it around it gets the last drop out, making those health care dollars go farther.

What tips can you share with others on getting the last drop out of a jar or bottle?

  1. I frequently add water to the container to get the last bits of shampoo, hand soap, or dish soap out too.
