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?
