How long do you keep a tube of toothpaste?

All these how long threads, I figured I'd start this one. My girl and I got into this arguement last night about toothpaste. She likes to just wad the tube up to try to get toothpaste out and gives up and tries to waste money on more when there is usable paste still in the tube. I'm not made of money. Told her to fold that up and if that doesn't work run it over with the truck to get some out. At what point do y'all say it and buy more? Or am I the only cheap here?

I'll keep it until there is just too much hassle to brush my teeth and I keep a spare new one for when that happens.

Pics of girlfriend?



You know to see is if it's worth it to keep her etc.
Purely for scientific research.

The problem with the spare is giving an option to not make an effort to use it all in the first tube. Then I got 2 messed up tubes

I've moved on to the little bottle container things, less mess. Dont get me started on the kids and how they these things up though. Or what they did to the toilet either.

Never really argued about toothpaste before, both of us are pretty neat/tidy so we both roll as we go and then toss it when itís empty. Not squeezing every last drop out but at the same time not wasting..

How much is she wasting, like a few dabs or a few teeth brush cycles? That will determine how much of a cheap you are

I usually roll it up until it's hard to roll anymore. Tell her quit wasting that .

Yea those little (annoyances) things add up over time. To become a real pain in the .

I'd tell her to leave it and you'll finish it off for her. Then whenever she wines about you spending too much money. Remind her how much you've saved on toothpaste.
