The magical balancing act of soap containers!

Do you think this is a strange sight?

The other night I had a soap container that was way low... I mean way low, but not empty ~ there were still a few good hand washings left there in the bottom of that container.

So, being a good and frugal New Englander, I tipped the almost empty soap container onto another much fuller container. It was a great balancing act ~ one the Wallendas would have been proud of. It leaned against the wall, teetering on a fall at any moment as those last few hand washings dripped into the much younger container.

As the drip, drip, drip ensued, I went about my business, as I can keep myself quite busy.

Suddenly I heard a cackling from the bathroom. Outrageous laughter ~ perhaps even a mocking sound!

My husband was entirely entertained by this display of soap saving.

Could it be he had never seen such a thing in his almost 50 years?  Apparently not! He thought this was the funniest thing he'd seen in days!

Are you a frugal New England soap saver?

Please let me know where you stand!

I am a Putnamaniac and a frugal New Englander!
