    I like to rip my dryer sheets in half and only use half a sheet at a time, and sometimes rip paper towels in half too, depending on the job.

  • Tanya

    I got a huge pack of ponds facial clothes at Costco years ago. I only use them a once or twice a week and they are big for washing your face so I cut them in half and they are still plenty big and have lasted me twice as long.

  • Heidi

    I used to cut baby wipes in half = 1/2 for pee and as many I needed (guilt free) for poo. 🙂

  • Cherie

    I tried to cut back on $$ with toilet paper and went one-ply – that won’t happen again……..’nough said.

  • Tracy

    I use 1/2 as much dish washer detergent as they recommend and 1/2 as much laundry soap (unless it’s a really dirty load). It cleans just fine

  • Tali

    I used to have 1/2 baby wipes sheets in a little zippy in the car to do quick clean up jobs (door handles, sticky kids hands/faces etc)

  • Mary

    I cut all of my scotch dish sponges and magic erasers in half…still big enough to use and I have twice as many for the price.
