I Know There Is A Little More

Updated on October 26, 2014

Crazy I Know

Some things in life you can't show

It is hidden under layers of years we have lived

A feeling

An unusual thought

It must of started small and grew

Like a little sapling that is now a tree

I try to ignore it

I try to analyze and use reason

Nothing makes any sense

Let me explain

I was in the shower in the last hour

Enjoying wonderful sensations

I reached for the liquid Dove soap

After two attempts

All I got is a loud squirt

But no soap

It was low but I didn't realize how low

Most people would just throw it away

But not me

I think to myself

I can get more

So I put it under the shower head and funnel some water in the top

Shake it wildly

Then within seconds I tried squirting the soap again

This time success

Lots of soap came out

All it needed was a little help

I will use it until this soap is gone

I hate waste and I guess you would call me frugal

I paid my hard earned dollars for the soap

Nobody gave me a discount if I threw some of it away

I am practical

What makes me wonder is why I have an obsession with going the extra mile

I never grew up during the depression

I heard stories from my mom what it was to go without

My father taught me waste not want not

I have to be true to myself

Have you ever done something like this ?

Maybe you know someone like me ?

What are your thoughts ?

Am I clever to get the most out of a bottle of liquid soap

Do I push it too far

I will leave you all soapy and sudsy

What would you do if you are left with the same choice?

Have a good night. ..

      Gypsy Rose Lee I forgot about the toothpaste tubes and ketchup bottles. I do that also. I am glad to see other people like me. In the end the pennies add up to many dollars. Thank you so much for sharing and caring. Have a great night,

      Practicality always is king in our house. All the toothpaste tubes, shampoo bottles and so on get their bottoms cut off eventually or they get cut open and you'd be amazed at how long they'll still be good. We even do that with food containers like ketchup bottles.
