If we spend our money on something, we better get our money’s worth, right? Money doesn’t grow on trees; we work hard for it. And with the increasing prices lately, we’d like to save some money whenever we can. Here are 14 hacks for how you can get your money’s worth out of everyday products.
Leftover Powdered Makeup
If you take apart your powdered makeup container, you’ll find more makeup under that plastic cap with the holes in it.
You can pry that top off with a coin. You’ll likely be surprised over how much is actually in there.
Vinaigrette from the Jam
Did you finish up all your jam? You can still use what you can’t scrape by filling the container with oil in vinegar.
Now you have your homemade raspberry vinaigrette for a salad.
Get your Money’s Worth by Reusing the End of That Candle
Is your candle too low to continue burning? Get the rest of the wax out by filling your candle container with boiling water.
The wax will dislodge and float to the top. It should pop out easily in one piece. Poke a hole in your wax piece and place it on top of a fresh candle, placing the wick through the hole.
The End of the Deodorant
Take out the piece at the bottom of your deodorant that pushes the deodorant up and place it in the deodorant cap.
Run a hairdryer over it until the deodorant hiding in the crevices of the piece melts. Pour the liquid deodorant into another deodorant and let dry.
Save Money by Using the End of the Lotion
Get the rest of that lotion out by cutting your hand cream container in half. Cut any excess space out of the middle, then scoop out the lotion.
To cover up again, just place the top cut piece over the bottom cut piece.
The Last Bit of Hairspray
Need to know how to use hairspray when it gets to its last few sprays? Squeeze your hairspray can. This will pressurize the gas and release any leftover liquid.
Get More Nail Polish
Need the last few bits of nail polish or to make the hardened stuff usable? Turn it into a DIY nail polish!
Pour some nail polish remover into your bottle and shake. Now you have more nail polish.
Get All the Detergent Out
Place your detergent container upside down with the cap on tight for a few hours to get every last drop out. Use this in your wash.
You should also take the second step of pouring water into the bottle and shaking it then pouring that water into your wash. You can also try removing the plastic inner part.
Bread Crumbs From Crusts
Do your kids hate the crust on their sandwiches? Save them when you cut them off. You can turn it into bread crumb topping.
Cut Off Buttons
Before you cut up that clothing into rags, take off the buttons. You can use them to make jewelry or for other crafts. Or if you lose a button.
Get That Concealer Out
Pull the top of your concealer out with a tweezer.
You know the part that makes the opening small so your makeup brushes wipe off excess makeup. Use a longer brush to remove the rest of the concealer.
Fix Clumpy Mascara to Get Money’s Worth
Has your mascara gone all clumpy? Here’s one of the useful mascara tips! Squirt some contact solution in it and shake. It should smooth out your mascara and make it usable again.
Fix a Pen
Did your pen run out? Try drawing on a piece of rubber like the sole of your shoe.
The friction from the rubber should get it working again.
Leftover Fruit Juice Popsicles
Does your family eat canned fruit? Those fruit cups are delicious. You can save the fruit juice in them to make popsicles.
