We'll be driving 130 miles or so all told. Fortunately, it's on the same day - both families having it Thursday, so then Friday through Sunday, I shall not leave the house!

No travel, except multiple trips to the grocery store this week for things we forgot. We are hosting another couple. Bigdog and the other man both like to cook, so the wife and I just stay out of the kitchen and watch them cook away.

No travel.

EgBob and I host all holiday meals for our immediate family and his extended family members. This year I also invited 3 friends who I knew didn't have a place to go for Thanksgiving. I love to organize/prep and cook the meal and fixings. This year we'll have 20 and 2 babies at our big feast. I really enjoy this time of year.

I will be out of the house by 7 am. 3 hours to my brothers to put some things in his fridge. He has to work till 4. What I put in his fridge will let him know I cared. Then back about an hour to where I will eat Thanksgiving lunch. Another half hour to dads assisted living home where I will meet same brother to visit with dad. Hang out with brother after that. Maybe eating dinner,maybe shopping. Then 3 hours home, just in time to get to bed to work at 7 am.

This is the first year dad has been at assisted living, before we had holidays at his house. He hosted all the extended friends. It is kind of a hard year for me.

Just an hour to my son's house but bay area traffic always sucks so I am sure it will be a little longer.

Question:

B) for me, but sometimes the cream is so thick it doesn't all fall down, so I need your D) ideas!

B. The only thing like that is toothpaste and I do try to get it all out within reason.

The Brand I use has a large cap, so it is always stored upside down. Pronamel repair and protect with flouride.

Oh, we do have tubes of that hairball glop for Katniss, also stored upside down.

B, but I had a cleanser that was expensive and I couldn't get the last part out so I cut the bottle in half (it was a plastic pump bottle) and scooped the remainder into a small plastic tub. I was surprised how much it turned out to be because I haven't finished using it up yet and its been a month or so.

Mostly I do B. But, when it comes to my acrylic paints, I cut the tubes open and scrape them clean and whatever I could salvaged I put into little paint pots/small tubs. I don't buy the really expensive acrylics (lol, I'm no where near good enough for that and I just paint for fun) but it does add up after a while and some paintings take a lot of one color or another.

D) For tubes like toothpaste, I lay it flat on the counter and take the flat side of a comb and push the contents to the end of the tube. Actually do this several times during it's life to keep the stuff near the opening.

For bottles, I turn them upside down and sometimes coax the thick stuff out with a Q-tip or toothpick.

B/D depending on what it is. For toothpaste, I do what same as Jeep. For hand lotion, it's B.

Usually B. If it is something water soluble like shampoo, I just use it down to where no more will come out and then put water in the bottle, shake, and eke out the very last bit that way.

B - usually only need it with lotion. Shampoo and conditioner or face wash just gets dumped into the new bottle when it gets low.

DH does B. But I'm impatient so I knock it gently against the sink. If it doesn't budge, I toss it in the trash, since it's at the end anyways. But with tubes of toothpaste, once I can't roll it up any more, it also gets tossed.
